Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for Kyube

Not ending before 8 February 2017 20:30 UTC

こんにちは。私ではありませんが,User:Kyube アカウントに global rollback の権限を付与していただくことは可能でしょうか?

理由は,複数の Wiki において グローバルに revert の強力な実績があるからです。--Charidri (talk) 20:30, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Hi. Generally global rollback is not granted to users who do not request it for themselves. In case Kyube is indeed interested in being granted global rollback access, they should preferably come here and state so. Thank you and kind regards, --Vogone (talk) 20:51, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Thank you for Charidri's recommendation. However, I don't intend to acquire any administrative permissions. --Kyube (talk) 01:27, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
    Marking as not done; candidate did not accept the nomination. Nor should we have nominations for these permissions. – Ajraddatz (talk) 04:57, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Global rollback for Some Gadget Geek

Not ending before 15 February 2017 14:14 UTC

Hello, I have been actively performing rollbacks on Wikipedia on mainly the English and Simple English Wikipedias. However, I also do occasionally rollback suspicious edits on other language wikis, the most active being frwiki, nlwiki, dewiki, and eswiki. Having one global rollback right on all the wikis will allow me to save the hassle of having to use a tedious undo feature which often results in edit conflicts should the disruptive activity continue, or I be beaten to the revert. Your consideration is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Some Gadget Geek (talk) 14:14, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Requests for global sysop permissions

Global sysop for Amire80

Not ending before 2 February 2017 22:11 UTC

I've been an editor in Wikipedia, Wikisource, and several other projects in Hebrew, English, and Russian since 2004. I'm a sysop in English Wikipedia, Hebrew Wikipedia, Hebrew Wikisource, and Hebrew Wiktionary. I'm a also a translator in translatewiki.net since 2009, and a MediaWiki developer since 2011. In real life I am a staff member of the Wikimedia Foundation, but I am making this request with my volunteer community account and on my own behalf. I am fluent in Russian, Hebrew, and English, mostly fluent in Catalan, and can read Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese fairly well.

The reason for making this request is that I am frequently asked by editors on smaller wikis to find why are some functions on their sites don't work: Bashkir, Mari, Sakha, Marathi, Kabardian, and others, and sometimes also larger ones like Belarusian, Indonesian, Georgian, and Japanese. Almost always the reason is incorrect JavaScript code in Common.js, user scripts, or gadgets, or an incorrect AbuseFilter. To actually get it fixed I need to wait for the local administrator to make the fix, and then to test the fix, and ask for more corrections if needed. This is a slow and inefficient cycle, especially considering timezone differences.

Every now and then I also notice pages on small wikis that are clearly inappropriate (spam, wrong language, copyvio, etc.), and I mark the for deletion.

Thank you for consideration. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 22:11, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

  •   Support! --Kaganer (talk) 22:54, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
  •   Strong support Why yes? :p I know the user personally and he does a great job in the movement and speaks a lot of languages (which is very handy for a global sysop). Moreover, Amir is a trusted user and also works for WMF in the very important field for me - language-related software. --Lingveno (talk) 23:02, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Please note global sysops ought not to act where local administrators are available. So in fact nothing would change about this "slow and inefficient cycle", unfortunately. --Vogone (talk) 23:12, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
    • Fixing broken code after a request by the local administrators feels like "routine maintenance" to me. That said, if only a handful wikis were involved, those wikis may also consider a local adminship. Nemo 23:15, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
      • If the initiative comes from local administrators, of course. I have no objection to this request, if it really helps doing this work, but I wanted to point out the limited use case. --Vogone (talk) 23:17, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
    The requests are usually by editors, not administrators. Often there are no administrators, or they are barely active. In some of the cases I mentioned above the local admins didn't reply at all, and the fix was done by a global admin. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 01:04, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Global sysop for Atcovi

Not ending before 12 February 2017 03:15 UTC

I'd like to request this right due to my increase need. I've been actively working on SWMT work for the last two months, and I've came across two wikis that I'd like to share as examples: vi.wikibooks and tl.wikibooks. At the Vietnamese Wikibooks, there are over 300 pages that have been blanked by this IP that actively contributes there. I would like to determine (instead of flooding #wikimedia-gs) whether these pages are worthy of deletion for no content, or the last contributor should be reverted and the original content be restored. At tl.wikibooks, several IPs come onto the website and vandalize several pages: (mainly: https://tl.wikibooks.org/w/index.php?title=Noli_Me_Tangere/Kabanata_41_:_Dalawang_Dalaw&curid=3018&action=history and https://tl.wikibooks.org/w/index.php?title=Tagalog/Pang-uri&action=history). I'd like to patrol this wiki and delete pages that are worthy of deletion. Obviously, these are only two examples and my work is not going to be entangled on these 2 specific wikis.

In addition, I would also like to block users. Recently I had to revert over 20 edits of page-blankers on ko projects, see: https://ko.wiktionary.org/wiki/%ED%8A%B9%EC%88%98:%EA%B8%B0%EC%97%AC/Atcovi and https://ko.wikibooks.org/wiki/%ED%8A%B9%EC%88%98:%EA%B8%B0%EC%97%AC/Atcovi). In the future, I'd like to put an immediate stop onto these vandals rather than wait for another global sysop to do it.

I hope that I am elected as a global sysop because I have shown, with evidence, a true need for this right. Thanks. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 03:15, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

  •   Neutral I do not see a demonstrated global need, however, I do not doubt that it would do a good job. I would like to see more opinions. Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 03:26, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  •   Neutral I need to think about this one. You've done fine as a global rollbacker but global sysop is hard to monitor (misuse of the right can go undetected for a long time), and the past issues of 2013-2014 give me pause. --Rschen7754 08:03, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose There are still a few points (e.g. distinguishing what is a good wiki for a GS to act on or not) where I do not feel comfortable granting access, but I see most of the reasons why previous requests (for any other permission) were rejected no longer apply. Considering the great development and maturing over the past years, I suppose a further request in 1-2 years could be ready to be granted. For the current need, however, I would suggest requesting temporary local adminship on the two wikis in question in order clean up. Kind regards, --Vogone (talk) 09:31, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
Just to be clear, I'm aware of what wikis are for GS and not (I've read https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Global_sysops#Scope). Here, I'll show why vo.wikibooks would be a GS wiki. This is because all of these wikis have inactive admins, see https://vi.wikibooks.org/w/index.php?title=%C4%90%E1%BA%B7c_bi%E1%BB%87t%3ADanh_s%C3%A1ch_th%C3%A0nh_vi%C3%AAn&username=&group=sysop&limit=50 (Mxn, last contributed nearly a year ago, with admin action the same). I thought I'd clarify this, because I believe I do know which wiki is GS and which is not. EDIT: I'd also like to clarify that I would like to work globally as a sysop, not on these wikis I've listed... these were just examples. I think requesting local adminship on four wikis would seem hat-collectish of me. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:26, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Neutral, I see your cross-wiki work at small wikis, however I'm not seeing a demostrated use of this right. Perhaps on the future, but now I don't know. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 13:55, 29 January 2017 (UTC).
ks-M9 do you mean you don't see me using this right on any other wiki? I have sysop rights on en.wikibooks for nearly two years now, if that is what you are referring to. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:06, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for Bruno Rene Vargas

He requested global IP block exempt because a recent global blockade has made my current IP 107.170.167.204 is blocked and was made by Vituzzu. This prevents me edit the project in which more I work daily, Wikipedia in Spanish. The message that appears is as follow: "Tu dirección IP está en un rango que ha sido bloqueada en todos los wikis.

Global IP block exempt for Dylan620 II

I attempted to revert vandalism from a classmate on Wikinews and found myself unable to do so because the IP of the computer I am currently using (17:57 Feb 22) is globally blocked, due to cross-wiki vandalism from my classmate on this same computer last week. The fact that the cross-wiki vandal in question seems to be primarily active when our class is in session gives me a chance to catch this person's vandalism as it takes place. I would like to be globally IP block exempt so that global blocks levied against my classmate will not hinder my efforts to fight their vandalism, plus I believe that global IPBE may come in handy should I face similar situations in the future. However, I acknowledge that my cross-wiki experience (Dylan620, Dylan620 II) isn't the widest or deepest, with the vast majority of my activity being on the English Wikipedia, so I understand if this application is turned down on those grounds. --Dylan620 II (talk) 17:57, 22 February 2017 (UTC) (edited 02:31, 23 February 2017 (UTC))

@Ruslik0: The second account is for use over public Internet connections (such as when I'm on my university campus, for example). I'm requesting global IPBE for my alternate account only - it's unnecessary for my main account, which I use in private settings, such as at home. --Dylan620 II (talk) 22:25, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Dear all. I'm currently using a VPN service when connected to a public Wi-Fi as a security reason. I am aware that the IP address used by the service is blocked globally, thus I am not able to edit, especially on Commons where I help file moving there. I have already IP block exemption flag on my home wikis, however I do not have it on Commons.

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for علاء

Not ending before 15 February 2017 12:47 UTC

Hello, I'm applying for global rename permissions because at my home wiki, the Arabic wikipedia, I often work with users to change there violates names and blocking accounts that do not meet the local username policy. Users blocked for a username violation or notified that their usernames do not meet policy often request a change in username, and having the ability to perform these renames would enhance my ability to perform this work. I have carefully read the global rename policy and our local username policy (I'd focus essentially on requests from Ar-wiki), and on the same time the global renames who speak native Arabic absent for along time and some requests accumulated until I sent a massage to them to deal with applications--Alaa :)..! 12:47, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

  • For reference, the bureaucrat right on ar.wiki was removed today shortly after it had been granted to him because the request had not been closed according to local criteria.

Savhñ 20:38, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
@Savh: I add this request due to a mistake in votes count by my colleague only, that is is not mean he not qualified for this permission, he is one of best and active admins in arwiki, he has good experiences and suitable for GR permission --Ibrahim.ID 21:36, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
It isn't, but it is worth noting that the user is no longer a bureaucrat considering it's mentioned on the request. Savhñ 21:43, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Global rename for Kipala

Not ending before 16 February 2017 11:20 UTC

I request global rename permission. I have been admin and bureaucrat on swwiki for several years. Presently we have nobody who can do rename. As we start a series of workshops etc. this will bring groups of newbies where the point of name choice and regrets pops up. Furthermore we usually work from same IP for 1 workshop and will have to prepare accounts for participants to use to avoid the mass account creation problem. Looks easier to have some prepared accounts ready to start with which later can be renamed. And I have read the Global rename policy and believe to have understood it. Kipala (talk) 11:20, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

  • "Furthermore we usually work from same IP for 1 workshop and will have to prepare accounts for participants to use to avoid the mass account creation problem" - this isn't the solution for the problem, the solution is to temporarily get account creator or ask to have the limit temporarily increased on Phabricator. --Rschen7754 05:55, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

    Account creator is not locally enabled by default, bur the admin group already include all the necessary permissions. --Vituzzu (talk) 23:48, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
    Yes it is, it's one of the groups enabled by default everywhere. But you're of course correct that admins already have the necessary rights. – Ajraddatz (talk) 23:51, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
    It's enabled by default everywhere, but the default does not include any way to grant it locally (it has to be done by stewards). --Rschen7754 01:11, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Global rename for Murbaut

Not ending before 24 February 2017 15:32 UTC

Hi friend. I want help for changing user names, one of them in idwiki, I had already offered assistance for this. I know there is bennylin (steward) and also Aldnonymous but he was not always active in the renaming. I understand the name of prohibited and permitted. I am also a member of SWMT. I've read the procedures of the global rename. I also have an IRC nick: Murbaut. Thanks you for read my request. Murbaut (talk) 15:32, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

  •   Support The concerns of your previous request I believe have been addressed. Alvaro Molina ( - ) 15:41, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Requests for other global permissions

Global editinterface for Mr. Fulano

Hi, sometimes I edit in codes, helping a importing gadgets to small wikis, and I need edit in MediaWiki pages and I can develop a great work in this wikis, like the ca.wiki and pt.wikivoyage. Thanks, --Mr. Fulano! Talk 19:50, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

  •   SupportReasonable request, trusted user who knows what he is doing.   Oppose after Xaosflux' explanation. Better give more time and get more edit on multiple projects. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 02:51, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
  •   Support  Oppose After analyzing the user well and seeing the comments that convinced me to change my posture. Global editinterface requires a lot of trust and experience globally, as well as moderately decent knowledge of CSS and JavaScript. Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 00:15, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  • This is very unspecific. What codes do you edit? What gadgets do you import and why? And why do you "need edit in MediaWiki pages"? For which "great work"? And why is it not sufficient if you request local rights on ca.wiki and pt.wy? --MF-W 12:51, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: I know CSS and JS, and my ideia is import in wikis gadgets like RTRC, Fastbuttons and HotCat. But for do it, I need edit in MediaWiki domain. And I want do it in more wikis, beyond ca.wiki and pt.wy, like the ltg.wiki, where there no sysops. I not edit in MediaWiki in pt.wiki because I'm not a sysop, but I already ask there to edit in this domain. Mr. Fulano! Talk 16:49, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I don't see this work out of your homewiki about this and evidences about your work on the interface, 0 (zero) edits on the MediaWiki namespace, not importing gadgets from other wikis, you need more experience for this right. Also, if you would like a development on these wikis (as you mentioned: cawiki and ptwikivoyage) you can request local adminship for these mission. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 14:03, 29 January 2017 (UTC).
  •   Oppose Not convinced, and an edit count of just over 10,000 edits is not enough experience for such a wide-ranging permission. --Rschen7754 05:57, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose No. --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:02, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

  •   Oppose with no communities currently providing interface access to even produce a baseline of work adding to all projects is too much. If you want to work on cawiki and ptwikivoyage you should seek access there. — xaosflux Talk 18:49, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Hi @Xaosflux:, in ptwikivoyage and cawiki there are no interface editor flag, and I don't want edit only in this wikis, I want edit in ltgwiki and others wikis where aren't enough interface editors and sysops to edit codes. Mr. Fulano! Talk 21:39, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
This access is extremely wide ranging and requires a high degree of community support, without being a sysop on at least one project I'm not really supportive of this. Perhaps if you could demonstrate that you have a long history of placing edit requests on multiple projects that have all been accepted without issue that might overcome this objection of mine - but they would need to be fairly substantial. — xaosflux Talk 00:53, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

  Not done. Sorry, Mr. Fulano. There is no consensus that the intended use of this permission would be necessary. The global editinterface is a user group assigned to users who really need to edit the MediaWiki namespace or the JS/CSS globally. Please come back when you meet the criteria. Kind regards, RadiX 02:55, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
