Not a lot, but yes. Check my contributions--NewDataB (talk) 15:11, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
Looking at your global edits, there doesn't seem to be a lot of antivandalism work outside your home wikis. Most of the other wikis you have edits are add images, and some page moves. Editors who request global rollback are generally expected to show experience in reverting vandalism in a relatively large number of wikis and demonstrate they can still perform reverts despite the language barrier. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 15:18, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

  Oppose 16 days since last GR request. Not enough crosswiki experience, and Global Rollback is not for circumventing applying locally for rollback. Vermont (talk) 16:58, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Only 8 wikis edited = not enough experience. And per the last request, you need more experience to ged this right. I suggest you to join SWMT if you want to start an experience. Also, is not a good idea to use GR rights only for not applying locally for rollback rights, as Vermont says. GR is for cross-wiki purpose. --Stïnger (会話) 17:16, 17 November 2018 (UTC).

  Oppose Saying things like "so that I don't have to apply for it in every wiki separately" demonstrates the serious lack of commitment and knowledge of cross-wiki experience that is vital for global rollbackers.

Requests for global sysop permissions

Global sysop for Praxidicae

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Not often do we see nominations here, so please excuse this one - Praxidicae is a highly trusted, competent contributor who has an extensive understanding of both local and global long-term abuse cases, and is a very active patroller for cross-wiki spam and vandalism. Through their work, they often deal with clearing up spambot attacks on smaller projects (such as, and where there are often few or no active administrators.

They have been a global rollbacker since early 2018, and have sysop experience on two projects - they also held "Edit Filter Manager" on the English Wikipedia (which was recently changed to EFH), and therefore has experience with abuse filters. I trust their judgement, and know that they would ask for help before acting if they were ever unsure.

Praxidicae having global sysop would be a net positive for our projects and would assist in their continued work here, I hope you agree.

I've asked Praxidicae prior to doing this, and have also asked them to confirm they are happy with this below - TNT 💖 17:06, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support From her (admittedly limited) anti-vandalism work on Wikibooks and Wikinews (which isn't GS-enabled, but nevermind).Leaderboard (talk) 18:34, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support Good global experience, strong demonstrated need for the tool and good cross-wiki antivandalism work. However, I am hoping they will be a little bit more cautious and less aggressive in their approach in smaller wikipedia. I did a random sample in the projects I held advanced permissions and I don't personally think a GR is needed as a sysop block the user soon and there are active sysops and RCP on zhwikivoyage to deal with it (but the help is appreciated nevertheless), an added blank isn't in need for a rollback, it's not vandalism anyway. Given that GRs are supposed to act when there isn't any local administrators able to act as well as any actions (like what Stewards will take) will need to be done with additional care and circumspection, I will advise them to wait a little longer before GS action and to put in a little bit more time to look through every edit. However, given the volume of their work vs these (other Chinese projects reverts are perfectly fine) plus GR is a little bit different vs GS, I will say that they having the tool will be a sure net positive to Wikimedia Projects as a whole which allows for GS actions. All the best.!--Cohaf (talk) 18:51, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Could you explain why she shouldn’t have rolled back the obvious vandalism in the first diff you provide? I’m not seeing your point... Vermont (talk) 19:04, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes, that is balant vandalism, and should be rollbacked. No issue with that. My point is that there isn't a need for GR rights to be used in this case as the the local community could have handled it. As GS are supposed to act when local sysops are not able to act in time, so I think it's sort of relevant to raise this up. Pardon if I didn't phrase it more carefully. I will not be watchlisting it so if you need any more clarifications, feel free to ping me. Thanks!--Cohaf (talk) 19:14, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
I'm aware that it is the custom for GS to not use their rights if there is an active admin and it is not urgent, but I have never heard such a thing for GR. --Rschen7754 01:56, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Support, though I am very unhappy with the practice of "nominating" for GS. This only encourages a nominee not to read requirements before applying. For example, the communication requirement ("Global sysops must have user pages on every wiki they use their global sysop access on, which provides contact information or links to their primary user page (creation bot available currently).") is not met currently on almost every GS wiki and has to be fixed before GS rights can be used. I am very confident, however, that this candidate will make a good global sysop, considering the past work. --Vogone (talk) 01:43, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Is the bit on requiring a userpage on every GS wiki outdated? Praxidicae’s meta userpage (as with everyone’s) shows up on every wiki where you click her username and she doesn’t have a local userpage. Vermont (talk) 02:06, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
I neither see any "contact information" provided nor a "link[] to their primary user page" (presumably enwiki). People on small wikis need to know how/where to contact a user who appears out of nowhere, has no or few local edits, likely does not speak their languages and uses admin-level privileges on their wiki. A link to w:Adrestia does not really help in this regard. --Vogone (talk) 02:45, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for Oshwah

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
Not ending before 2 November 2018 05:42 UTC
As a user who watches and patrols the new user log (among many other logs) and responds to unblock requests that pop up on a live feed on the English Wikipedia, I frequently run into accounts that are in violation of Wikipedia's username policy that are requesting an unblock and with a new username that complies with the policy. There have been a handful of times where the user simply gave up and walked away after waiting for their unblock request and account rename to be handled. That's disappointing for me to see happen; we just lost a potential editor and good contributor to the project because they didn't know about the username policy, and they were already feeling that they were put into a waiting line and treated like an "offender of policy" - and (in many cases) they haven't even edited anything yet. Having the global rename permissions would allow me to assist these users right away and get them back on track and able to contribute to the project. As someone who frequently offers assistance to new and novice editors and helps them to get started, make good decisions, and get themselves back on track after having a rough start on Wikipedia - I feel that being able to rename accounts will give me the ability to provide an extra level of personal assistance, as well as defuse any frustrations and get them out of the "unblock request waiting" line and back to feeling that positive motivation to contribute to the project. I'm here to request the global rename permissions, as having them would give me the tool needed in being able to assist users in these situations. I'm an admin on the ACC tool project, I know Wikipedia's username policy extremely well, and will use the rights responsibly. If anybody has any questions or concerns, please let me know and I'll be happy to respond. Thank you :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 05:42, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support Oshwah is more than sufficiently experienced, and would be very beneficial to the project. His experience in ACC (where he's an admin) and high activity/admin work on his home wiki leave no doubt to me that he's trustworthy enough for this tool. Vermont (talk) 19:54, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per every other time an enwiki admin came over here requesting this right. This block-first-ask-questions-later trend (aka "soft blocks") is becoming more and more problematic. I refuse to support handing out rights in order to staple together a solution for overzealous enwiki policies. Nihlus 10:20, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
    @Nihlus: aren't you an enwiki-only user with this right? — xaosflux Talk 04:22, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
    @Xaosflux: I am, but you've missed my point entirely so let me elaborate. The issue is that instead of starting a discussion with users about their username, administrators have now brought it upon themselves to block without warning while at the same time not unblocking the user to make a request to change their username. Instead, many administrators have stated they "need" the right to rename in order to help the process of reviewing unblocks they they themselves are levying. Instead of directing users to Special:GlobalRenameUser or some other equally viable place, enwiki admins are coming over here stating they need the right when it is obvious that they don't. If they want the rename right then they should be familiar with the process and experienced in it instead of just saying "I'm an enwiki admin so give it to me" or "this will be nice to have so give it to me."

Global rename for CyberTroopers

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

In a simple word, I would like to help all the users who truly need to rename their account due to any particular reason as long as it's following the renaming policy. I have no other intentions of becoming a global renamer. Just want to help and it might help everyone. Plus, there's no other specific conditions of becoming a global renamer so I think there's no reason to object. I will pourish my efforts to help all users in need. Thank you. ;) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by CyberTroopers (talk)

  Not done. Based on the consensus gathered that requests that are unlikely to pass can be closed early provided that there has been sufficient input, which I consider that has been provided already. Sorry, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:00, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

This is only partially in response to the recent security issues on enwiki. As a security professional, I tend to be a bit more paranoid than most. — AfroThundr (u · t · c) 01:23, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for that. Can I also have 2FA for my bot account AfroBot? The bot will use a bot password with a limited grant, so the normal login would be best secured with a second factor as well. — AfroThundr (u · t · c) 13:55, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
