Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for Igna

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
Can we please return Igna's global rollback permissions? They previously had global sysop and global rollback and they have returned (YEA!) back to assist. No skills lost. Previous rights lost through inactivity. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:52, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Requests for global sysop permissions

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for Leiem

Sometimes I attempt to edit some pages on enwp with VPN due to PRC's GFW. It turned out the IP address was blocked globally. Though occasionally the IP address was unblocked for some time, I tried to do some edits on Wikipedia of other languages like jawp, the IP was blocked as well. So I think I need global IP block exempt to contribute better and more conveniently. My main edits covers chemistry and articles related to China. Thanks. --Leiem (talk) 02:21, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for Editor D.S

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
Not ending before 30 June 2018 23:10 UTC

Hello. I want this permission to respond to solicitations on lusophone projects, mainly pt.Wikipédia, which is my source wiki. I am currently an administrator on pt.wikinews and have already used the renaming tool on a Wiki that, although I do not belong to Wikimedia, I was part of the administrator and bureaucrat groups. I know that the renaming tool is available in user contributions, along with privileges management buttons, deleted contributions etc. In my source wiki there are a lot of renaming requests and I would like to be able to contribute with one more task and with responsibility. I know the new user name can not exist in other wiki and the user can not be blocked in any project. I'm stay openned to questions. Thanks! --Editor D.S (talk)  23:09, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Since you are "open to questions", please explain this. You were blocked on your homewiki for some disturbing reasons in the past 11 months:
    1. for incivility/rudeness
    2. for abusing multiple accounts/sockpuppetry and vandalism
    3. for sockpuppetry/vandalism (different incident)
    4. for vandalism
There are more, I just picked these and sometime your talkpage and email access had to be disabled because of continuous rant. Can you explain how that happened and what have changed? –Ammarpad (talk) 05:29, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Hello Ammarpad. Thank you for your question. First of all I'm sorry if my English is not very suitable, because I do not speak much English. I can explain these blocks. If you look at these blocks, you will see that they occurred well at the beginning of my activity on pt.wikipedia. I confess to you that as a novice I felt quite difficult in the project and committed wrong attitudes that I thought were correct. About blocking for abusive behavior, it was precisely because I did not understand the rules of the project and insist on attitudes that I thought were correct. But this incivility was never due to rude words, because I always try to talk politely. About blocking due to multiple accounts, it was because, early on, I practiced testing on articles not logged in my account, as a kind of experimentalism, and the checkuser decided to block it because of that. But I have never used multiple accounts to attack other editors or participate in polls, discussions, etc. On removing my access to the email, it was due to the fact that in one of the blocks I was nervous and used the PDU incorrectly (but I emphasize that I did not use inappropriate words) and a bureaucrat (with whom I was having conflicts previously) decided remove my PDU and email access.
But today, I say with happiness, that I have changed my behavior quite a lot, even because I learned from these blocks. Currently I am dedicated to combating vandalism in pt.wikipedia (and I even receive praise from other editors) and also started to contribute to the monitoring of other projects of Wikimedia Foundation, as well as in the patrolling in Meta-wiki. Whenever a vandal is reported in Steward requests/Global, for example, I research the vandal's global contributions to try to reverse them. I feel like I'm growing more and more in the wiki world. --Editor D.S (talk)  14:53, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Sock blocks on a home wiki are a no go for holding any advanced global rights for me. I know this is a global community, but on it sounds like you would have been indefinitely blocked. My standard is if the behavior could have lead to a legitimate indefinite block on any major project (which it sounds like it could have in this case), we shouldn’t be giving out global rights. TonyBallioni (talk) 20:03, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose primarily per the too-recent-for-me blocks on homewiki. Also to note the existing "administrator" access claimed is a temporary grant. — xaosflux Talk 20:34, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Xaosflux and TonyBallioni, I understand your point. But I would like to remind you that the blocks are not so recent and the multiple account block was due to testing on articles over IP. I think the most important thing is that I learned from those mistakes and did not repeat them again. --Editor D.S (talk)  02:51, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
All were within the last year and a block log like that could be indef on some projects, and since it is a global right, how the behavior would be viewed on other projects matters. I may be willing to support in 6 months, but not now. TonyBallioni (talk) 02:56, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
"recent" is subjective, like I said, too recent "for me", others may disagree. — xaosflux Talk 04:19, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose would prefer more time between the homewiki incidents and granting advanced permissions like this. – Ajraddatz (talk) 04:27, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Thank you for your answer. Please continue your anti-vandalism work on pt.wp and don't engage in sockpuppetry and vandalism again. –Ammarpad (talk) 06:00, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per above. Concerns with recent blocks on pt wiki. -FASTILY 17:56, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
