Global rollback for Uğurkent

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hello Wikimedians. I have some local wikis bureaucrat, sysop, editor, patroller and translation admin rights. I can use many tools (eg:Twinkle) including with this code. Some stewards and global sysops recognize me. I need their help in some cases. I'm stuck to some wikis captcha application. That's why I can't rollback to the some vandalism. I'm trying as best I can. I want to help more so get the opinion of the community to access this application. --Uğurkenttalk 16:41, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Global rollback for Infinite0694

Hello all. I believe that I have sufficient x-wiki experience, so I wish to have Global Rollback as user rights to make me much more quickly to fight any x-wiki vandalism, especially, I think that Skipcaptcha rights would be very useful for me. Plus, I've been granted the rollback permission on the en Wikipedia, so I am sure that I know how to use it well. But, there are several reasons why my work on Wikipedia is limited by not having this tool, for example, I am not able to rollback to the some vandalism due to the fact that I have an experience with stumbling over Capita system. Additionally, I have been spending more time on Wikipedia to help the community, and I reckon my editing history shows that I am enough to handle this rights.--Infinite0694 (talk) 04:34, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

  •   Neutral You had a great start by joining SWMT but As far as I can see, I can not find significant patrol activity (only en.wp and ja.wp), Special:CentralAuth/Infinite0694 here state you only have activity on en.wp and ja.wp, and most edit on ja.wp is reverting edits which is great but I think it might be better to get local rollback on en.wp and ja.wp because your anti vandalism activity are centered only to those 2 Wikis, I am neutral on this because knowledge on Vandalism on other language other than English like what you did on ja.wp which is Japanese is a great asset, maybe it might be better if you join us patrolling on #cvn-swconnect channel on IRC, you might want to know how to do correct revert and deletion tagging on other language than English and Japanese.--AldNonymousBicara? 04:53, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
@Aldnonymous: Thank you for making a comment, but did you not see it[1]?

Global rollback for Grind24

I'd like to apply for rollback. I've been an active member of the SWMT for some months;doing many reverts and taggings. The rollback tool is more efficient than manually undoing and twinkle so this would make it much easier to revert nonsense/spam edits. Plus there are still some wikis where I have to install my global.js so TW is not there when needed most and I think that rollback globally would help me do the job faster.Grind24 (talk) 21:16, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

  • "Plus there are still some wikis where I have to install my global.js" - isn't there GlobalCssJs? --Rschen7754 21:23, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

  •   Oppose For now, because by checking crosswiki edits I don't see that Grind is active on reverting vandalism or spam. I see however a lot of userpage creations which could be avoided by our new Global Userpage extension and some speedy deletion tagging, for which rollback is not required. And while I appreciate your work, this does not give me the impression that GR is needed by now :-( — MarcoAurelio 21:57, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Eloquenzministerium

I am a candidate to the german Arbcom(Schiedsgericht)-elections running from the 8th to the 22nd of May[2]. A previous problem concerning an IP-range I am using from time to time, has very gently been solved by Steward Billinghurst, kindly converting a hard into a soft block, thereby allowing me to follow up on comments made by the users in their vote-comments in a timely manner. In his answer to my e-mail-request at stewards@m, he invited me to consider asking here to avoid further problems of this kind.

Indeed, I am travelling quite regularly, not only during the ongoing voting period. I am also contributing to the english- and french-language wikipedia and recently asked the danish WP for advice on an account originating there, who asked to be unblocked for the de:WP, so a local exemption in my home-wiki alone would be less helpful.

In the past, I have repeatedly run into this kind of problem and then either abstained from editing at all or waited until I came across an unblocked opportunity to contribute. As I often try to solve ongoing conflicts, it is sometimes time-critical for me to be able to intervene before a debate heats up beyond a point of no return.

Therefore I would be most grateful for granting me the global IP block exemption-flag. Thank you in advance, should any further clarification to this request be needed, I'll be glad to oblige, just ask. Best Regards --Eloquenzministerium (talk) 12:01, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Some candidates are perfect, so it does not matter if there is someone as perfect as them... other ones are less perfect, so it would better to be sure if they are in fact the best we can get. I am not opposing, I simply has to be coherent with my standard, that's it. I asked Meursault2004 (id-N) some months ago, for example. Tonight I contancted Aurora (id-2), in the future there will be someone else, I don't know... Mimihitam for example.

Global rename for Aldnonymous

Not ending before 29 May 2015 16:14 UTC

Hello everyone, today I ask for Global Rename permission to be added on my account, reason for this request is because the backlog on rename request already long (w:id:Wikipedia:Pengubahan nama pengguna/Permohonan), and there's only 2 Renamer available (bennylin as stewards, and Mimihitam as G Renamer) but Bennylin have no interest handling this request and Mimihitam are on vacation IRL, another reason that pushing me to ask for this permission is that Bonaditya request for Global Renamer got rejected because he have no/little experience with Xwiki, Bonaditya is one of the active admins currently id.wp have on it's undermanned status (We currently only have 26 admins to handle all this stuff), so in actuality currently there's no Indonesian Global renamer that needed to handle id, ace, bjn, map-bms, bug, jv, min, su and other local language that have wiki Inside Indonesia (Indonesian sister projects). I made this request so I could handle the request and solve the backlog. For my suitability for this rights, I think I have crosswiki experience, and language skill to handle the request and I am familiar with Xwiki works. Thank you for reading this request.--AldNonymousBicara? 16:14, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

  • sigh I guess I don't really like that this request comes just a few weeks after d:Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Administrator/Aldnonymous, where concerns were raised regarding the candidate's communication; running for something else so soon after that just doesn't sit well with me. I also don't think the rationale is that valid either: the local request pages are a convenience, not a necessity, and if the staffing doesn't exist to run the page, then it should be redirected to Meta, or to that new tool in the Special: namespace that was recently developed. So I would have to oppose this. --Rschen7754 01:25, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    @Rschen7754: Easy for you to say that, I already ask local crat to ask for this rights, only mimihitam asking it, meanwhile others give disinterest response, I ask other local sysops, only Bonaditya ask it, but even so, he got rejected because no xwiki experience, we also already place the pointer page to meta, but they don't want to place it here because meta still using mainly english on its request page, then we try communicating with them offline from facebook and explain the process, even so they got dejected and give up on the renaming process, I am actually depressed with this situation, and the mistake few days ago on Chinese G Renamer renaming Indonesian user wrongly because it was a spam account and religious attack account didn't make it all better, hence this request. I probably only going to use this G Renamer temporarily until there are other Indonesian G Renamer.--AldNonymousBicara? 04:22, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    Then we should take the issue up with those global renamers. Meanwhile, Special:GlobalRenameQueue and associated pages are supposed to be translated as part of the interface. --Rschen7754 15:44, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    @Rschen7754: Your answer made me realize you are not really familiar with renaming please do see w:id:Istimewa:GlobalRenameRequest It's already in Indonesian (This link already inserted on local rename pages but they don't use it -senior editor like Anbu(see w:id:Pembicaraan_Pengguna:Aldnonymous/Arsip_002#Bls:_Akun_global) and Hiro Hamada(see w:id:Wikipedia:Pengubahan_nama_pengguna/Permohonan#Andika_Rahman_Hakim_.E2.86.92_HiroHamada1)-, after the wrong rename by some Chinese Global Renamer, indicating that experienced user don't trust this special pages request despite the endorse to using it onwiki and offwiki), some people already made the request, some don't made the request after they saw the wrong rename happened to some of the editor, it's showing that language comprehensive are required when handling request from specified language such as Asian (non germanic) language.--AldNonymousBicara? 16:38, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    I don't think that is a problem of the page itself, which is IMHO very intuitive. You just have to enter the desired username and a reasoning and hit "Submit". If people is being wrongfully renamed I think that they a) need to read the pages before submitting requests or; b) find that user making bad global renames and educate him on doing right his job or remove their rights as Rschen7754 said. I'd say that that special page would be the only way to request renamings in the future when the SUL-F process is fully done... and many major projects are replacing local request pages in favor of this centralized system (eswiki for example). Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio 22:34, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
    True, but it's hard to change habit, local procedure that already prevail for a long time and local sysops/'crat that are used to old rename process is hard to adapt with new rename process, the current gap of number id-N renamer didn't make it better as no id-N renamer available to "actually" explain stuff to them, it's within my interest that I want to change their rename process to match the current meta rename and use that special pages hence I keep asking local sysops or 'crat to ask for G rename as I already explained by me on previous comment, but as expected, Bonaditya got rejected because low Xwiki activity, hence I made this rename request because I already give up on searching local admins that are willing to ask for Grenamer, the fact that the process for this rights are made hard for them because they have low Xwiki activity makes them timid and reject the idea of making them Grenamer.--AldNonymousBicara? 22:46, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

CAPTCHA exemptions for Devwebtel

I'm not requesting global rollback, because I don't have too much global vandalism reverted. Thanks, --Devwebtel (query) 19:45, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

    • I'm not editing the same wiki, this is global RC, so do 10 edits on each of wikis may be difficult. --Devwebtel (query) 22:05, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Eh? Since your account is SUL you are autoconfirmed on every wiki you visit as long it's on SUL, hence I said it's weird.--AldNonymousBicara? 22:30, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
No, it doesn't work that way. For example, if Devwebtel gets an autocreated account on xxwikibooks on 9th May, it'll be autoconfirmed only when the local requirements for autoconfirmed are met (usually 4 days/0 edits on most wikis). This won't have an effect on being autoconfirmed at other wikis. I also encountered this issue when I first joined SWMT. There's also a bug/task about this. --Glaisher (talk) 08:37, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
The right to skip captchas doesn't seem to be included in the autoconfirmed group on every wiki. Perhaps that should be fixed. Ajraddatz (talk) 23:11, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Autoconfirmed is only local group, not global. When I have autoconfirmed (with skipcaptcha right) on xxwikipedia, I don't have it on yywikipedia (and I have to solve captcha). --Devwebtel (query) 10:58, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
Ah yes, probably I was meant to say that, but I never encountered Captcha.--AldNonymousBicara? 17:22, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
  • @Devwebtel: Have you tried User:Krinkle/Tools/Global SUL yet? As Glaisher pointed out, 4 days after you have run that script you should be autoconfirmed on nearly all Wikimedia wikis, even without being in the global CAPTCHA-exempt group. Kind regards, Vogone (talk) 11:20, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
    • I runned this tool, but on some wikis you should have some edits (usually 10) to have autoconfirmed rank. --Devwebtel (query) 12:43, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
      • That's just a few large wikis. --Glaisher (talk) 17:29, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
        • If it is a big problem to grant this permissions, OK. I will wait month and I will request global rollbacker. --Devwebtel (query) 20:17, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
          • Not a problem at all; we just wanted to nail down what the problem was. Done. Thanks for helping out! Ajraddatz (talk) 22:53, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

add global-interface-editor for Jitrixis

I was an ex-sysop on wikidata and I've made some script on it like labelLister, autoEdit, etc... So I'm skilled in Mediawiki's Javascripts. Recently I've seen a bug on many project who support the rename title script for unsupported title. It rename the title seen on the page but not the title of the tab on the browser that is also a SEO mistake. Maybe in the futur I can find some other bug and issue I can resolve on common script, so it will be usefull for me to get this right. Is that possible ? Thanks in advance, Cordialy, --Jitrixis (talk) 10:44, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Unfortunately, I can't understand your request. You saw a bug in a global script (wherever that is located)? Then you should edit that global script or make an editrequest on the talk page wherever that script is. Likewise if you "maybe" find other bugs in scripts, you should edit or request them to be edited accordingly at their locations. --MF-W 13:19, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
    @MF-Warburg: This is not really a bug, it's just a missing feature in the code which make an little SEO problem (non correspondant of the title tag and the subject). The code is located on many wikis on Mediawiki:Common.js, but the problem is recurrent on different wikis like "en" and "fr" wikt, "en" and "fr" wikp, and maybe on others.
    Then I'm a developer so I solve problem by my self, and I'm not a global admin because I don't need those tools, but sometimes I see bugs on protected scripts or someones send me issue about scripts so those tools can help me to do this job instead of delegating the job to someone else. And of course i'm not a barbarian, if I change the way a scripts works I will request it before ;) Cordialy, --Jitrixis (talk) 00:01, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
  •   Question: SEO Mistake?--AldNonymousBicara? 15:52, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
    @Aldnonymous: en:SEO explained above :) Cordialy, --Jitrixis (talk) 00:01, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
    Exemple: wiktionary:fr:Titres_non_pris_en_charge/Signe_inférieur_à the title on the top of your browser isn't the corrected title, so if you search on google the inferior sign you need to type this request ([3] which appear on the top with a weird title) and actually google is able to undertand script, so according to SEO recommendation we also need to change the title of the page (title tag) at the same time we change the title of the article (first level title). And another small lack, there is no message "Title to use to create an internal link" (in french "Titre à utiliser pour créer un lien interne") like here w:fr:1 E18 s, but that's not an SEO problem and also a different kind of problem. --Jitrixis (talk) 00:19, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Does anyone else have input on this? Ajraddatz (talk) 01:36, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
    He do says he need the bit to manage the tools, I see no objection but at the same time no support, just questions, the final decision should be made by Stewards.--AldNonymousBicara? 16:43, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
