Global IP block exempt for Chico Venancio

For privacy and security reasons I use a VPN service that has some of its ips under Global block, thanks, --Chico Venancio (talk) 17:54, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for WhitePhosphorus

I live in mainland China. Sometimes GFW blocks me from accessing various Wikimedia projects so I have to edit via my VPS, but the IP addresses of which, no matter v4 or v6, are global blocked currently. I'm sysop on zhwiki and zhwikibooks and have 14K+ contribs globally, I hope that is enough to earn your trust. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 10:46, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Hrodvarsson

I use a VPN service for privacy and security, and have been affected by a recent global block. I have made 3,000+ contributions to Wikimedia projects, mostly the English Wikipedia, and would appreciate an exemption so I could continue contributing, thanks. --Hrodvarsson (talk) 15:20, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

add Abuse filter editors member for Kaldari

I already have abuse filter editing rights on English Wikipedia and Commons, but I'm increasingly seeing spam attacks targeting more obscure wikis, some of which don't even have active administrators (For example [1]). Also WP0 pirates have learned that they can work around edit filters on Commons by uploading pirated audio and video to more obscure projects (See [2]). I would like to have global abuse filter editing rights in order to help smaller projects set up effective filters and also to create global filters to combat cross-wiki spam and piracy. --Kaldari (talk) 22:47, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

  • Comment. There is no such global group. Ruslik (talk) 19:14, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
    • @Ruslik0: Sorry, the documentation said "The Abuse filter editors global group was created..." so I assumed there was a global group. Looks like that's not actually the case and only Stewards have the abusefilter-modify-global right. Kaldari (talk) 21:58, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
      •   Not done There is a hatnote: "This page is kept for historical interest. Any policies mentioned may be obsolete." This group did exist but was later deleted. Ruslik (talk) 20:13, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
