Global rollback for Neriman2003

Hi! Please give me rollback rights.--►Neriman2003 talk 12:03, 8 April 2018 (UTC)[]

@Neriman2003: please read this page, and notice that "users must be demonstrably active in cross-wiki countervandalism or anti-spam activities (for example, as active members of the Small Wiki Monitoring Team) and make heavy use of revert on many wikis." --Alaa :)..! 12:17, 9 April 2018 (UTC)[]

  Not done Closed as not done. No sense of continuing as the result is clear. --Alaa :)..! 12:18, 9 April 2018 (UTC)[]

Global rollback for Chrissymad

Not ending before 15 April 2018 15:37 UTC
Hi there! I do a lot of x-wiki countervandalism, particularly tracking LTAs and spammers (I have reported over a hundred to Stewards.) Unfortunately, the undo button is rather useless for consecutive edits on many other projects and I often find myself having to ask stewards or administrators (via IRC) in other languages to undo simple edits (or in some cases, I have to hope another editor will notice it.) Basically, I think with the amount of cross-wiki av work I do, global RB would be super useful and would take some of the responsibility off of the backs of stewards dealing with my incessant requests. :) Chrissymad (talk) 15:37, 10 April 2018 (UTC)[]

  •   Support a good amount of experience reverting across project and language barriers. The one mistake I found was this undo - the question was valid as the email is missing on the main page. But that was the only mistake I could find, so obviously there is a trend of diligence here. – Ajraddatz (talk) 17:13, 10 April 2018 (UTC)[]

Global IP block exempt for Doyoon1995

I use Psiphon to access some otherwise inaccessible web pages and some IPs are globally blocked from editing Wikipedia. I want to be able to edit Wikipedia while the VPN is open, thanks, Doyoon1995 (talk) 10:20, 29 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Global IP block exempt for Sİbot

The service provider hosting the source code for Sİbot uses the IP address in the block 173.254.28.*. Could you please handle this? Thanks and regards. --Superyetkin (talk) 17:58, 3 April 2018 (UTC)[]

Taking into account that the bot is active only on trwiki a local IP block exemption will be sufficient. You can grant it yourself. Ruslik (talk) 19:44, 3 April 2018 (UTC)[]

I'm from Mainland China, Wikipedia(zh) is blocked here thus proxy is required. The IP I used is actually allocated to me exclusively for a long time, the proxy is also properly secured, but unfortunately it falls within one of the blocked IP ranges. May I request an exemption?

Global IP block exempt for BronHiggs

I have been blocked (global block) and have no idea why. The stated reason was "leaky colo + open proxy at" which is incomprehensible to me. The reason given also stated that the start of the block was to be 19:32, 6 April 2016 and the expiration was to be 19:32, 6 April 2021. Since we are now at 17 April, some 11 days after the block was supposed to be active, why did I not notice this on the 6th (and not advised of it then), when I most certainly wasn't blocked, but am actually blocked today. The block was made by Vituzzu (, who appears to have made dozens of blocks, some of them for periods of 5 years for similar reasons. The person who imposed these blocks does not appear to be responding to correspondents on his/her talk page. I suspect that there has been some type of hack going on. I have not been advised of any block on my talk page, and only discovered the block when I tried to undo an edit on a page that I am watching. My work on Wikipedia has been so innocuous that I have not been expecting anything like this. Please unblock me, or provide information about what I need to do to become unblocked. BronHiggs (talk) 22:34, 16 April 2018 (UTC)[]

@BronHiggs: The block is not directed at you personally. I have made your account exempt from global IP blocks. By the way, this request should have been made at the other requests page. Green Giant (talk) 22:58, 16 April 2018 (UTC)[]
