Global IP block exempt for Niridya

Hello Stewards,

I am Niridya, a french wikipedian and I would like to get the status of Global IP Block Except. I often use a VPN, which is called HMA! Pro VPN, to secure my Internet browsing (generally when I am at school or when I am not at home). I also rarely use Tor Browser when I have no computer.

Cordially, thanks, --Niridya (talk) 21:36, 4 January 2018 (UTC)[]

<Add an explanation here>, thanks, --مستخدم:Ashraf.Yaccob

Why was this request posted by another account? Ruslik (talk) 19:32, 3 January 2018 (UTC)[]
becauuse the orginal account is not able to edit or change any thing in the wiki —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MichelBakni (talk) 14:44, 5 gen 2018
So, to which account do you want IP block exemption? Ruslik (talk) 19:24, 5 January 2018 (UTC)[]
this one, thank you --MichelBakni (talk) 21:35, 5 January 2018 (UTC)[]
So, this is your alternative account that you are going to use with your android mobile device only? Ruslik (talk) 19:52, 7 January 2018 (UTC)[]
@Ruslik0: As I understood that (Ashraf.Yaccob) can't enter wikipedia due to global range block, so he asked MichelBakni to request a Global IP block exempt for him. I asked MichelBakni about this thing in Arabic, so please wait until he replay. --Alaa :)..! 21:31, 7 January 2018 (UTC)[]
@MichelBakni: كي يتم توضيح الأمور، حسب ما فهمت أنا أنك تطلب الصلاحية لهذا الحساب وهو ليس لك، ولكنك تطلبها نيابة عنه كونه لا يستطيع تسجيل الدخول، صح أم لا؟ --Alaa :)..! 21:31, 7 January 2018 (UTC)[]
@علاء: نعم .. تماماً هذه هي الحالة —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MichelBakni (talk) 22:02, 7 gen 2018

@Ruslik0: MichelBakni said as I told you, that this account not related to him, but the account operator asked him to request Global IP block exempt instead of him because he can't enter Wikipedia or other projects. I think this request is invalid and the user himself should send an email to stewards email, what you think? --Alaa :)..! 14:36, 8 January 2018 (UTC)[]

can you give me the email so i forward it to him ? --MichelBakni (talk) 19:57, 8 January 2018 (UTC)[]
@MichelBakni: أعتذر للتأخر بالرد، الأفضل أن يقوم المستخدم نفسه بإرسال بريد من خلال هذه الصفحة ويذكر بها عدم قدرته على الدُخول إلى ويكيبيديا مع توضيح جميع الأسباب، طبعًا إن لم يستطع حتى تسجيل الدخول لويكيبيديا فليرسل بريد إلى ( --Alaa :)..! 19:50, 9 January 2018 (UTC)[]

Currently can't edit articles on ru-wiki while using VPN (cause some Russian sites, even search engines and e-mail services are blocked due to complicated political affairs with the Ukraine, my home country), thanks, --Heffalump1974 (talk) 13:25, 26 January 2018 (UTC)[]

Global IP block exempt for Dqwyy

Hi, I'm a Wikipedian from Mainland China, where Japanese Wikipedia was blocked recently. I make some cross-wiki contributions (not only at Japanese Wikipedia) with the help of proxy sometimes. I'm not sure whether other wikis will be blocked or not in the future. So I would like to get the global IPBE. Thanks. --dqwyy (talk) from zhwiki 16:41, 26 January 2018 (UTC)[]

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for It'zDJPerez

As a temporary admin in the Swahili Wikipedia and a rollbacker at simp.Wikipedia,I have some experience in handling administrative issues. Also,as days go by,Wikimedia needs a new set of leaders to run the foundation. As a youngster, I would bring in fresh ideas. As a global-renamer,that would make me get familiar with greater challenges ahead. Thank you --It'zDJPerez (talk) 16:41, 2 January 2018 (UTC)[]

  •   Oppose Per all above and the fact that temp admin on one wiki and rollbacker shows trust but you're talking about the ability to rename 1 person to any username (technically, naturally there are policies) on 800+ public wikis. There is enough existing members in this group to process all requests in a timely manner (no urgent need for new members) and all your edits seem to concentrated on the wikis where you hold rights (not enough cross wiki activity). All in all this says it is not an urgent request and you don't seem to have enough experience yet to become a global renamer right now --Sau226 (talk) 01:57, 6 January 2018 (UTC)[]
  •   Oppose No experience — Cethos (discusión) 02:38, 6 January 2018 (UTC)[]
  Not done, no consensus. Feel free to re-request it once you have gained more experience in rename area. You can help/get experience by cleaning up requests in local pages and can ask any steward/global renamer if you have any doubt. If you have any idea about how to improve Wikimedia, you can discuss it at Wikimedia Forum and getting a feedback. Matiia (talk) 03:13, 6 January 2018 (UTC)[]

OATH-testers global group for misaochan

I'm the project maintainer of the Commons Android app and we are attempting to implement 2FA logins for our app. The developer who is working on it (maskaravivek) has obtained OATH testing rights for his beta account, but this is only valid for the beta server. I would like to be able to test his pull request on the production servers before we release this feature. Misaochan (talk) 09:03, 8 January 2018 (UTC)[]

Add OATH for MicahX

I would like to increase the security of my account. Thanks. --MicahX (talk) 11:52, 7 January 2018 (UTC)[]

Do you really know how to use two-factor identification? You can be locked out of your account if you do this wrong. Ruslik (talk) 19:49, 7 January 2018 (UTC)[]
Just wondering, what led you here? Your account was just made today. 2FA has a lot of technical challenges right now, so I'm interested in how brand new contributors are being sent here. — xaosflux Talk 19:53, 7 January 2018 (UTC)[]
Err you actually know that if you lose your 2FA device and your 5 backup codes (it takes 2 to disable 2fa if you lose your backup device) there is no way to get into your account unless a user with access to the server removes it (they won't unless you can prove through an off wiki and non email method {which can be documented on wiki} that you are who you say you are). As of my comment, I'm not seeing any pages whatsoever that would reasonably allow someone to say "This is the user behind the account for sure" for you. I therefore have doubts about whether at this time you know how to use 2FA and the risks and recovery methods that you may have to use one day --Sau226 (talk) 06:02, 9 January 2018 (UTC)[]
