Global sysop for Billinghurst

Not ending before 1 March 2017 01:38 UTC

Hi to all. I am looking to do some xwikisource work, or at least to be able to work with the smaller WS communities in that space to resolve some issues. I could apply for Global interface editors to do the WSes work, however, it is probably okay for to just put my hand up for GS rights as I have continued doing holistic anti-spam work through AbuseLog/Title blacklist/Spamblocklist/COIBot. I am an active and experience editor and administrator across many wikis; currently have five admin rights (enWS, enWP, C, M, MW) plus GR. I have had other advanced admin rights and believe that I have acted responsibly with those rights and can demonstrate that I can act appropriately with communities while holding advanced rights. I am not looking to do more in the SWMT, though as bibs and bobs pop up, I would deal with them directly rather than mark for others. Anyway, I will throw it over to the community and check back in a couple of weeks. If you have any questions please do ask, and please do ping me as I am not actively following this page. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:38, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

    I said that I was going to work with the smaller wikisource communities (primarily assist fix Mediawiki: ns configuration of proofread page), not take care of them. The only person who thought that I was not neutral was you and that was when I blocked an IP (not even your account) for abuse, sockpuppetry and abuse of proxies. I believe that I have a demonstrated understanding and perspective of bad and good administration, and that my editing will show that I am not a problem on small, medium or large wikis. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Billinghurst (talk) 14:33, 25.

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for Giandomenicolombardi

Dear administrators, I'm an italian linux system network administrator and webmaster (it.wikipedia.org member for 8 years) 30 years old has always been a lover of culture in all its facets. In the past, a little for lack of time, a little because of the Tor nodes block, I could never help as I wanted and add content to y/our great project, because running a Tor exit node (7EEDFBF70DE60E789E478C0B1E59050F35DE0059) I would be forced to restart every time my connection with dynamic IP (svr01.l1t.it) to bypass the block and you can post. Very uncomfortable and unpleasant as something that does not always I can do for various reasons.

Kindly you can receive an exemption for my audience when logged?

If necessary, to get it, they are also willing to add the rule to block outbound traffic to wikipedia from my Tor node.

Thank you very much, and good weekend! :) --Giandomenicolombardi (talk) 17:47, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Done. – Ajraddatz (talk) 08:17, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for Just Chilling

Not ending before 11 March 2017 21:42 UTC

I am currently spending much of my time at English_Wikipedia_Unblock_Ticket_Request_System and, latterly, at Category:Requests for unblock where many of the appeals can be resolved in part or whole by renaming. I am familiar with the Global rename policy. Acquiring this permission will make my work more efficient and clearly benefit the Project. Just Chilling (talk) 21:42, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

  •   Support I do not see any problems with this request, except probably the fact that it does not have cross-wiki activity, however, I do not see it being relevant to being a global renamer. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 17:50, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
  •   Support MechQuester (talk) 19:19, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
  •   Weak support because of few cross-wiki activity --Alaa :)..! 12:43, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose No cross-wiki activity and i count 12 unblocks since 2011 at enwp. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:35, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
Hi, I do not understand the significance of the unblocks? Blocking and unblocking is a routine part of my administrative duties on enwp. With regard to the crosswiki work, in order to do renaming on enwp I need global renaming rights. However, if granted I would then help out on renaming crosswiki. Just Chilling (talk) 15:07, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
You are claiming to spend much time at utrs and Category:Requests for unblock thus i am wondering about the low number of such unblocks (compared to other enwiki admin). --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:25, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
Ah! I understand. I have been working mostly at UTRS. Appeals to UTRS either should have been heard on the user's talk page or come to UTRS after talk page appeals have been exhausted. In the former case I redirect the user back to their talk page. In other cases, where talk page access has been revoked, this is time consuming work, particularly in sockpuppet cases, but rarely would this result in an unblock. With regard to Category:Requests for unblock, I said "latterly" and have been working there for a couple of months. If you look at that category, unblocks, except where there are username issues, also seldom happen. Block changes happen a little more often, I have just changed a block today for example.
However, if granted renaming rights my unblocking would rise sharply because I could resolve username issues. To take just today, for example, I would have been able to offer to rename Caper Travel that came to me at UTRS, Oh Fuuck! I have constipation! is waiting at Category:Requests for unblock for a rename, also there Ancientcointraders needs a rename as does St Cuthberts Mill and Frecuenciaprimera. At these deletion forums we only have one user currently working regularly on renaming and every day there is new work to be done. Just Chilling (talk) 16:25, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
For what it's worth I can confirm that they are fairly active on UTRS in the last 3 months. --Rschen7754 19:11, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
  •   Support sounds reasonable, though I am slightly concerned with the lack of apparent activity. – Ajraddatz (talk) 08:22, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose; enwiki should change its excessive blocking rules. --MF-W 20:16, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
    • Perhaps, but do you really think this global renamer request is the right place and time to make a stand on that issue? Your oppose is completely unrelated to the qualifications of the candidate at hand. Ks0stm (TCG) 07:45, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
    • Seconded. @MF-Warburg: This is a comment about enwiki policies and not the candidate, and let's be frank: opposing someone based on policies they are merely following is unfair, to say the least. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 12:43, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - no reason to opposing (imo). I think is a reasonable request, and renaming users who have requested a rename on a local wikis is ok, and in my opinion cross-wiki activity isn't required for this right. The candidate can also help in queues or SRUC requests, if he is interested to help here. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 21:24, 1 March 2017 (UTC).
Once I am fully conversant with the procedures I should be delighted to help. Just Chilling (talk) 22:44, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
  •   Support, being active in queues would be a plus point. ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 07:56, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
  •   Support I don't see why not. The user has clearly explained why he needs the right. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 11:27, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
  •   Support -FASTILY 09:26, 5 March 2017 (UTC)
  •   Support Well I don't see any reason why giving global rename to this user would be a significant problem. Let's not also forget that I did not have much cross-wiki activity when I applied for global rename (And I still don't, to be fair). If the user can be trusted not to rename users like ClueBot NG, that's more than half the battle for me. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 12:44, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
