  •   Oppose, according to you global contributions, maybe you need more cross-wiki experience. The glocla rollback flag is not just for Chinese-related projects. --Stang 09:27, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose, you have never used the undo button for other than your edits outside of the Chinese Wikipedia, so there's no need for the global rollback. Stryn (talk) 09:31, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose, I agree with the others. And having only 92 wiki's where an account exists is not global. Rollback works on every public Wikimedia wiki. --Wiki13 talk 10:28, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose, Global rollback works on all 400+ (if I'm correct) Wikimedia wikis. Also previous candidates typically are good at reverting vandalism across wikis where they are not proficient in the language of the wiki. Most of your edits have been to articles about a chinese wikipedia where you hold temporary sysop access and the bulk of your edits are to the chinese wikipedia and the classical one where you hold sysop for now. As per my comments and the above I oppose --Sau226 (talk) 11:01, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
    • Note: It works on every publicly accessible wiki of the WMF, which are according to the current statistics over 800 wiki's. Wiki13 talk 11:06, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose, lacking experience at crossactivity. I recommend you to join this team, if you want to have experience, for example. Also, I agree with Stryn. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 14:23, 24 December 2017 (UTC).
  •   Oppose per above --Alaa :)..! 17:32, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per above, concerns with limited x-wiki experience -FASTILY 07:41, 25 December 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Per all above comments. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 16:37, 25 December 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose. Lack of cross-wiki work. Edits are centered on only two wikis. I suggest you to ask those rights locally if you need to use it in any other wiki.—Teles «Talk to me ˱C L @ S˲» 17:29, 25 December 2017 (UTC)
  •   Oppose: Sorry, you need addition of cross-wiki contributions. Such as like Commons, Wikidata and English or other language projects site. Not just only the Chinese projects site. SA 13 Bro (talk) 01:33, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
  •   Neutral. Thanks for volunteering! However, per above, we need to see your contributions on more Wikimedia wikis, especially on fighting vandalism. I stay neutral for now. ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 17:17, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
  • moral support. First of all, thank you for volunteering and offering to participate in counter vandalism in these projects. Unfortunately, Global Rollback flag granted only to users experienced in cross wiki counter-vandalism, which includes wikis whose language barely understand (or more likely not at all). So I would advise you to withdraw this request; it won't be successful this time. However don't let this discourage you. Use the undo function to revert vandalism in these wikis (unless they are compatible with twinkle, which is way better-pretty much like rollback). If any of these wikis has a local rollbackers' group, you may request that permission according to the local policy. If not, you can continue like that and maybe request adminship to one or two of them, especially if they are small and/or have few or no active admins. Also, if you feel that you would like to participate in cross wiki countervandalism, please do check Small Wiki Monitoring Team, and maybe come back here in the future. (feel free to contact me if need any help) --Kostas20142 (talk) 19:37, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Trebuchette

I prefer to use NordVPN to maintain my privacy, but I also like to edit Wikipedia. I've contributed in the past, which I think proves me to be a legit user; can I have an exemption? Thanks --Trebuchette (talk) 22:29, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

  •   Weak support although the editor has less than 20 edits for the time being, all of them were productive, so I feel that they could be trusted with the flag. --Kostas20142 (talk) 20:07, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Racconish

I am now using a VPN service for privacy and security, particularly away from home. I have made over 100,000 contributions in more than 9 years to various projects, I am a rollbacker on the French WP, the English WP and Commons, and have been elected 7 times in a row as an arbitrator on the French project [1]. I would appreciate it to be able to avoid postponing my contributions when I travel. Thanks, — Racconish ☎ 19:26, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Renew global editinterface and global delete for Pathoschild

I use global editinterface and global delete permissions to run the Synchbot service and maintain scripts crosswiki (mainly the former now). With Synchbot I've mostly focused on the global user page migration and handling user requests from global user pages#Removing local pages, and fulfill the request queue periodically. I'm not otherwise active, but I'd like to continue this work; stewards have indicated they'd rather not take over Synchbot. :) —Pathoschild 23:24, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
