Global rollback for Boomer Vial

I have over 3,500 edits on the English Wikipedia, with more than half being acts of anti-vandalism.It'd be awesome to have global rollback rights, for when I expand over to other parts of WikiMedia. Boomer Vial (talk) 23:40, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

  • As it says in the heading for this section, please read the policy on global rollback. Specifically, "For consideration, users must ... make heavy use of revert on many wikis." You have edits on only 4 projects, and reverts on one - this activity does not meet the policy requirements. Please gain more experience in cross-wiki vandalism; there is the SWMT if you are looking for ways to help, and you can do that without the rollback button. Regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 00:24, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Global rollback for Atcovi

Not ending before 13 March 2016 21:02 UTC

I have recently been active in the field of reverting vandalism across various Wikimedia wikis. And without having to use the slow "undo" button (and so I don't have to go to the history tab, click a revision so I could revert multiple vandalism edits: here and here; I used "Rv", showing I am reverting multiple vandalism edits). And another note, my CentralAuth has increased since last request.

And speaking of last request, I feel like I have taken care of the concerns by the Wikimedia Community in the last request in April of 2015... which were

"Goldenburg111 alias Draubb alias Aaqib A. and who remembers the other names he used certainly has not improved his behaviour. Whenever I see him on the SWMT or stewards channel, he makes less than clueful comments unfortunately. Also a very weird sentence in the rationale about the feeling that someone reverted faster than oneself - this still happens to people who have rollback rights, and it's anyway not a feeling to deplore (oh no, other people are active too?!" from Warburg.

I don't really think I've been making clueless comments lately, I've been quiet honestly. And I don't believe that the rollback rights make you faster, I got rid of that way of thinking.

And as well as concerns about activity. I believe activity shouldn't be a concern here as I'm usually reverting vandalism everyday, at least once, using the cvn-sw channel. Plus... I request deletion for pages on the gs channel, so I'm active patrolling for pages that are in need of deletion on wikis with no admins (or active ones).

Thanks! --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 21:02, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

If I appointed as a global sysop, I'll be helpful for maintenance and anti-vandalism. Thanks. --rxy (talk) 15:21, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

You just did not succeed in that election because people thought you returned to activity too recently. So why does this request come immediately after it? --MF-W 15:25, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your question.
Reason: Sometimes I feels late to handling an anti-vandalism request by Stewards or GSs. If anytime requests handled by Stewards or GSs quickly, I'm not making this requests, and I don't run for SE.
About of my activity in this year: I returned to Japanese Wikipedia for helping as the temporary sysop for stopping massive vandalism bot (Log 1, 2, 3, 4). After that, I talk about to change a department in my job to boss, and that is approved. For this, I'll be active at wmf wikis from this year.--rxy (talk) 19:16, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Global sysop for Ah3kal

Not ending before 22 March 2016 16:50 UTC

I'm a user of Wikimedia projects from 2007 as User:Egmontaz(1). Under that account I used to help in SMWT and was a global rollbacker for I while.(gr request, gr removal request) For personal (irl) and privacy reasons I switched to User:Geilamir (2 not any measurable x-wiki activity with this one) and finaly to my current account (Ah3kal). I can understand any objections and/or uncomfortableness due to account change. I enjoy x-wiki countervandalism and beeing helpful to small communities, monitoring cvn-sw, or directly checking recent changes and new pages for unnoticed vandalism. I think this saves time to regular content-editors to do what they enjoy better. I'm currently a sysop in el.wikisource (3) which along with, I consider my homewikis. I think having the gs tools will help a bit in my current SWMT job, eventhough I tend to have patience in reverting vandalism before needing to do anything else. If Real life slows me down or keeps me away for a while I will willingly resign the tools. I feel the need to mention this in advance because form June until early September 2016 things won't favor my wikiactivities. Thank you.—Ah3kal (talk) 16:50, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Global sysop for Biplab Anand

Not ending before 23 March 2016 11:58 UTC

Hello Friends, I would like to request for GS. I'm a Global Renamer and active in the Small Wiki Monitoring Team. I have experience with the sysop tool as being a sysop on newiki and maiwiki. This tool would help me to delete vandalism and spam pages. You can find me on irc under the nick Biplab in multiple Wikimedia channels. I surely concern about the scope of GS and also concern where I can use the tool and where it shouldn't be used. Now I have to ask other global sysops or stewards, but it would be much easier when I can do it by myself. Thanks--Biplab Anand (Talk) 11:58, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

  •   Oppose Unfortunately, I don't believe you are qualified to be a global sysop. Most of your cross-wiki edits are making renames, and I don't see much anti-vandalism or anti-spam activities in your contributions. Maybe not now. eurodyne (talk) 15:45, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

Global IP block exemptions should be requested on Steward_requests/Global_permissions#Requests_for_global_IP_block_exemption. Ruslik (talk) 15:44, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
  Not done please request on the above page Ruslik has mentioned. ~ Nahid Talk 08:19, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
It's not so urgent currently. ——S536870912 (talk) 00:43, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
So, I'm closing this as   Not done anyway as you don't need it currently but please ignore my comment above. I meant to say that you should request the local IPBE on the respective page of the local wikis. This section is only for requesting global IPBE in case of global IP block. Best. ~ Nahid Talk 15:52, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt removal for odder

Would you be so kind as to remove me from this global user group; I log in directly from my home IP address now and do not require being in the group anymore. odder (talk) 22:14, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Done, let us know if you need it back in the future. Ajraddatz (talk) 22:15, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Babelfisch

I partially live in China. The government is blocking Wikipedia. Sometimes (e.g. right now) I can use a friend’s proxy, but generally, using Tor is the only option I know of. On the English Wikipedia, I had an IP block exemption since 2008 (see here). I hope a global exemption will solve my problems to access Wikipedia and other Wiki projects. Thanks, --Babelfisch (talk) 17:10, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Done. Depending on the blocks in place, you may need to request local exemptions on some projects as well. Ajraddatz (talk) 17:15, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
More fall out form the Mike V "cleanup" of "unused" IPBE rights I see. May I suggest someone drop him a note on his talk page and let him know about this additional collateral damage? Reguyla (talk) 23:32, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
I could let him know, or Babelfisch could re-request IPBE through the usual channels. Ajraddatz (talk) 23:35, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
I posted on your talk page since it's off topic for here. Reguyla (talk) 23:45, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for MicahHyde33

I would like to have IP block exemption because I want to edit the English Wikipedia and some other wikis. I don't want to be caught by any IP blocks, don't care what it is, but MF-Warburg, please hand it to me. Thanks! --MicahHyde33 (talk) 15:36, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Global abusefilter-helper for Matiia

Hi. I'm requesting this user rights as I'd like to be to see private abusefilter logs on non-GS wikis. As a GS, I'm able to see private abusefilter logs on most of wikis, and as a metawiki admin, I'm able to see global private abusefilter logs, but I'm unable to see private abusefilter logs on non-GS wikis, where a lot of spam can be found. Matiia (talk) 03:12, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Seems like an out-of-scope request to me. --Vogone (talk) 03:49, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
    Huh? AFAIK, the scope of this user rights is not defined. Where has it been discussed? Matiia (talk) 02:08, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
    The group has initially been created for Nemo bis and the scope mentioned in his request. Also the group name suggests the intention behind the group's creation. --Vogone (talk) 22:38, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
    No. While this usergroup was created to allow Nemo bis be to able to see private abusefilters, its scope was not discussed, as it was created as an alternative not to add to him abusefilter editor rights. Matiia (talk) 00:52, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
    Why "No"? Of course it does suggest an intention. --Vogone (talk) 00:57, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
    I mean that its scope was not mentioned in his request. He requested abusefilter editor rights and some users opposed to it, so this usergroup was created as an alternative, and as Ruslik0 thought it'd be one person group, it makes sanse this usergroup to be called so. Matiia (talk) 01:27, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
  •   Support I fully trust in him, if he says he needs the tool then I support his request.--Syum90 (talk) 09:14, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  •   Support I fully trust Matiia as well. I seriously doubt they will do anything wrong with this. Reguyla (talk) 14:16, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
  • What is the purpose of seeing private AF logs on non-GS wikis? --MF-W 22:35, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
    Mainly being to able to find spambots. I also watch abusefilters logs on eswiki to try to improve local abusefilters (i.e. finding falsepositve or edits what they didn't trigger, for the filter be fixed (I know I'm not a local admin, but well... I try to help out as much as I can being a normal user)) and as some of them are private, I always need to ask some local admin to tell me what happened. Being to able to see private abusefilters codes on other wikis would be useful as well, to find some ideas about how to improve them. Matiia (talk) 00:52, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Sorry but I think I tend to agree with @Vogone here. The vast majority of spambots are logged in the global abuse filter log and in the meta spam blacklist log. Non-GS wikis are suposedly big enough to deal with those issues you mention. —MarcoAurelio 19:37, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

Add 'move' right to 'global-flow-create' group

Flow board creators can't move Flow boards on certain wikis, because they are not autopatrolled there. Is it possible to add "move" rights to "global-flow-create" group? That would concern these users.

Global editinterface for Krinkle

Hi! I'd like to re-request this right. I joined the interface editors group in 2011 (request). Since then I've helped countless gadgets and scripts to maintain compatibility with changes made to the MediaWiki software, and to apply best practices for security and user experience reasons. As well as other maintenance as requested by users. Per the change in policy making it a temporary right by default, it was extended in 2014 (request) and 2015 (request). I'd like to request it again and serve the community at least another year. Thanks! –Krinkle 19:42, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
