Global IP block exempt for Evuntia

I'm editing to Wikipedia from Turkey and I have to use VPN because of that but my VPN is world-wide blocked so I have to search for the true VPN to edit. So I want to have the permission of the global IP block exemption. Thanks. --Evuntia (talk) 20:58, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
  Strong support Active editor at, clean block log, 1,2k+ edits, 2 years around. The user can most definitely be trusted with that. --Kostas20142 (talk) 11:43, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for Nihlus

Not ending before 5 February 2018 17:15 UTC

Hello everyone, I'm Nihlus. I'd like to help out the global renaming processing by going for the global renamer bit as I frequently come across requests that are awaiting a renamer response. I am mainly active on the English Wikipedia but would be able to handle requests in Spanish as well (en-N, es-2). I am an abuse filter helper on the English Wikipedia as well as an OTRS agent. Additionally, I have extensive first hand experience with the renaming process: meta, en-Simple, en-Usurp. Furthermore, I have worked behind the scenes with a Steward as well as a separate global renamer on building a solid understanding of the guidelines and learning how to deal with unusual or different requests since a lot of it goes off of the global renamer's judgment. Though it goes without saying, I am familiar with the Global Renamer Policy as well as the tools used to process global renames. Nihlus 17:15, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Support - Nihlus has been heavily involved helping with requests on SRUC here, and on CHUS/CHUU on enwiki. He has a good grasp of the global renaming policy, and the practices that should be followed on both projects. I have no qualms about his ability to properly rename users. – Ajraddatz (talk) 18:52, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support Per Ajraddatz. Trusted and Experienced User. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 21:57, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support actively involved on SRUC --Alaa :)..! 23:41, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Sorry, not now. You have less than 10k edits (9k on en), no x-wik ness, no sysop tools on a wiki, etc. Imho not experienced enough. --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:39, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support Fine by me, and admin tools are (afaik) not required for the global rename right. Trijnsteltalk 14:02, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support definately. Clear need. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 14:11, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  •   Strong support Clear need for the bit, and in my opinion, his experience is more than sufficient. The less than 10k is something irrelevant in my opinion; having 9,500 or 19,500 isn't big deal or relevant in any way with the ability to decide properly regarding rename requests. And the not a sysop part is of little importance to me. He has demonstrated with his work at the venues stated in his statement that he has solid judgment, so clearly support. --Kostas20142 (talk) 17:34, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Support - there is no reason to oppose here. This user has enough experience to get this right. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 18:34, 23 January 2018 (UTC).
  •   Support I have no concerns at all from my interactions with Nihlus, and I also trust ajr's judgement implicitly. TonyBallioni (talk) 00:08, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Add OATH tester group for Pizza1016

I have been receiving notifications of repeated failed login attempts to my account from new devices (while I'm away nonetheless), so I would like to enable 2FA for additional authentication. I'm aware that 2FA is still a work in progress, but I believe the additional security is justified in my circumstances. --Pizza1016 (talk) 03:44, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Do you realize that if you lose your scratch codes you will permanently lose access to your account? Ruslik (talk) 19:50, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

OATH testing group for Zeus

I have been receiving 3-4 password reset requests and failed login attempts per week. I have recently changed my password but would like to enable 2FA as additional security for my account. I use Google Authenticator for many other accounts and would like to do so here. I do have some history as an editor on en-wiki and as a New Page Patroller. Thank you. --Zeus (talk) 15:13, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

@Zeus: have you read Help:Two-factor authentication (especially the parts about scratch codes and loosing access to your account)? — xaosflux Talk 18:00, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: Yes I have read it and I am aware that I need to keep the backup codes or I will lose my account. Zeus (talk) 19:39, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
