Hi! I'm Infogeek244, and I would have the “Global rollback” right! Why? Because I'm since 4 months here and I already know everything. I would like to help and make myself useful. (Especially against the vandalism) Sooo, why not? --Infogeek244 (talk) 09:38, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

  • So far you have edits in five projects, and you have not demonstrated active cross-wiki antivandalism work. Global rollbackers are typically expected to revert vandalism on a wide range of wikis--that means they need to correctly identify and revert vandalism on projects with languages the user doesn't speak. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 10:00, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Thanks for volunteering. However, global rollback is mainly used by users who fight cross-wiki vandalism, and I cannot see any evidence of that in your contributions. You might want to join the SWMT first and reapply later. Leaderboard (talk) 10:03, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I am now in the SWMT. Thanks for the information! --Infogeek244 (talk) 10:58, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Too new, too inexperienced. Thanks for volunteering but do join SMWT or cvn networks. Like your enthusiasm but sorry it's too soon for global rights.   Oppose.--Cohaf (talk) 10:10, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support --Novak Watchmen (talk) 11:44, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per PlyrStar93. Unfortunately you only have 1600 edits globally and have edited five wikis in total. That alone is enough for me to say that you don't have the necessary experience to become a GR. Why not? GR is a right that requires some level of cross-wiki experience and unfortunately I don't think you've shown that yet. Hiàn (talk) 14:25, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose too early. --Wildly boy (talk) 04:01, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Global rollback for דגש חזק

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

Hello everyone. I am active in several wiki projects, first under the name User:אשמדאי and then under the current alias. I suffer from many attacks and editing cancellations of trolls, mainly from User:יעל י from many IP addresses. Every project I visit.

I have a Rolback license in the Hebrew Wikipedia and in data wikis, and this permission will help me very much to deal with it with all its vandalism.

I am aware that the scope of my wiki activity is not great, but I do not intend to use this permission for edits that are not harassment on its part. I would be very happy to receive the authorization, thank you very much. דגש חזק (talk) 12:59, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

  • What sort of projects have you been experiencing harassment on? How extensive is it? Hiàn (talk)/editing on mobile account 14:31, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment AFAIK you only user revert on 2 wikis where you already have patroller and rollback, how do you justify this request under "...and make heavy use of revert on many wikis." from our policy page?--AldNonymousBicara? 14:39, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
    • Undo edits are obsessive everywhere I edit.
    • Everywhere I went, even a few edits, she came to harass me. Wikiquote, Wikisource Wikipedia in other languages.
    • I did not understand the last question.
    • By the way, if anyone here speaks Hebrew, it will help me. דגש חזק (talk) 14:54, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
      • Could you be a bit more descriptive when you say "everywhere I went"? I'm not asking for much, just a small list of, say, 5-10 wikis where you've been affected. Hiàn (talk) 18:32, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Not now due to low cross-wiki activity (only 11 wikis edited). I suggest you to join SWMT. --Stïnger (会話) 15:34, 3 March 2019 (UTC).
  • To undid edits of one person, global rollback flag is not needed. Please use global twinkle or something like that. X-wiki activity is very low. And less attention to the attacker - less interest to continue, no need to rollback immediately.—Iluvatar (talk) 16:10, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose "I suffer from many attacks and editing cancellations of trolls, mainly from User:יעל י from many IP addresses", I think that requesting this permission is not the best way to address this problem, if that becomes persistent over time, you can request that your user pages be protected by an administrator or a steward if there is no local administrator, in addition, it can report to the IPs/users involved in SRG if this is in cross-wiki at the same time. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 17:11, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
    • Protecting my user page will not help; She just searches for edits from my donation page and cancels, including revisions of the scrappy edits. דגש חזק (talk) 18:32, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose low cross-wiki experience and significant communication issues. --Rschen7754 18:52, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose as this doesn't seem like the right use of the tool. I don't know exactly how widespread the harassment is but GR cannot be considered a solution to your issues here - please consider adapting a better strategy overall to combat the vandalism instead of seeking out more flags. Another note, judging from this IP's contribs at Wikidata it appears that you were edit warring (serious red flag IMO) and chose to report the IP a full thirty minutes after the vandalism began (another red flag). Hiàn (talk) 19:06, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Requesting rollback rights on the wikis you frequent would be better. Nihlus 19:08, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose. Reverting cross-wiki harassment by a single person is not sufficient for granting global rollback. This right requires experience with properly identifying and reverting cross-wiki vandalism that is not limited to just the edits by one editor. You said you have been attacked by a user at every project you visit, however you have edits in 11 wikis total as of today, and this is not something that needs global rollback access to deal with. Prior to today you have not requested any global block or global lock regarding the said user, and the two global blocks you requested today for and have recent undeleted edits in roughtly 3 projects, two of which (hewiki and wikidata) you already have rollback access, the other (yiwki) you have only made one undo action, so the situation can be handled with the accesses you currently have. You have not demonstrated any ability to consistently perform reverts on projects with languages you do not speak, therefore we cannot determine if you will use the rollback tool correctly and not misuse it. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 19:24, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose It appears that your request is out of global rollback scope. Leaderboard (talk) 19:40, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Requests for global sysop permissions

Global sysop for Aldnonymous

Not ending before 14 March 2019 05:50 UTC

Hi everyone, same as my previous request in 2015, I'm volunteering for Global Sysopship to fight Vandalism and Spam, that keep happening on most Small wikis, I have the experience being a sysop from my time as temp admin on small wikis, being an admin on Indonesian Wikipedia, and for previously held this GS bits, my focus is still the same, focusing on Global South wikis (see here List of countries by regional classification) and wiki that's so obscure that nobody can speak the language, I am offering my skill and time (different time zone than most of Wikimedians), in handling small request in Steward requests/Miscellaneous. Previously I went inactive for years due to IRL problem during the final year of my undergrad study in law, right at the same time I got into accident that force me into rehabilitation so I could walk again which took most of my time, I am truly sorry for this. Right now I am fine and can spend my time doing volunteering works on Wikimedia. my previous Global Sysops request can be found here :

Global sysop for Tulsi Bhagat

The following request is closed Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
Not ending before 1 April 2019 17:32 UTC

Hi there, Please have a look at my recent global contributions, cross activity and xWikiness, I have been actively involved in counter-vandalism works. I am an active member of SWMT, and you can find me on irc under the nick "Tulsi" or "TBhagat" in multiple Wikimedia channels including #cvn-sw. I am constantly monitoring #cvn-sw for vandalism, nonsense and clearly inappropriate pages. I've tagged hundreds of such pages with {{Delete}} template, a few examples: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12], [13], [14], [15], [16], [17], [18], [19], [20], [21], [22], [23], [24], [25], [26]. Moreover, I hold sysop and interface-admin on maiwiki and newiki.

I don't want to put the other sysops to any inconvenience by asking them to respond my delete, block request time and again. It would be more effective if i can do it on my own. I know about the scope of GS and various uses of the tool. I believe, I can make good use of this tool. Therefore, I would like to apply for GS. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 17:32, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

    • Adding more examples which call into question the candidate's honesty: [27] [28] It would be dangerous to give someone with a pattern of dishonesty a right which operates on several hundred wikis and where the use is hard to audit. --Rschen7754 02:03, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
  •   Weak support leaning to neutral, You certainly have done a great job, I like it! You also have decent theil index of crossactivity, though there might be some small concern about your activity trying to get some user rights crosswikis. And lastly there are also small concern about you not being a global rollbacker. I know this is not a Cursus Honorum, but it is an indicator of how trusted you are to held global rights.--AldNonymousBicara? 18:14, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
    Hello Tulsi, about what you said on IRC, it's not like we can't see how much have you done to keep the small wikis clean. Its just Trust are a different matters entirely, I'm in general a trusting person, and I know you have good intention and good faith for the Wikimedia projects, but again, Trust is hard to gain, don't lose hope, one day you will be recognized as trusted and valued members for Wikimedia projects, don't lose hope and try to regain that trust.--AldNonymousBicara? 02:46, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
  • I have not reached a final decision yet. I really appreciate your SWMT work and anti-vandalism efforts, but I prefer to see more experience in crosswiki matters. I believe that you have improved a lot. I am not particularly concerned about you not having global rollback rights, but global sysop requires more experience as different wikis work differently. GS may be a bit too early. I will revisit this soon. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 19:30, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
    I agree with Aldnonymous. We see your work, and we believe in second chances. It's just that this is a bit too early. I am willing to forgive users if they turn over a new leaf and not return to their past actions. Trust is easy to lose but hard to gain. I just want to encourage you to keep up the good work. It takes time for the community to trust someone again. I know it is not easy as it requires a lot of hard work. I hope you will not be discouraged by the outcome. Take this as a moral support.

  • (Edit conflict.)   Oppose I had to research your history because I wasn't familiar with it. After looking into your past behavior, I sadly have to oppose. Someone who has created a sockfarm of cross-wiki vandalism-only accounts is not the kind of person I would want as a global sysop. Furthermore, someone claiming to be you subsequently lied about your account being hacked in your unlock request. You claim that this was a "stalker", which I'm a bit skeptical of given your history of dishonesty, but in either case it was clearly based on false premises. Frankly, given that your (or your stalker's) unlock request was later revealed to be based on false premises, I'm confused as to why your account isn't locked currently. And then, only a few months ago (Rschen's link), you claimed the vandalism was "unintentional" (nonsense), which certainly doesn't lend any credibility either. I'm not against giving people second chances, so I'm not saying you should be locked, but I don't trust you nearly enough to be a global sysop. PiRSquared17 (talk) 01:54, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Global sysop for Vermont

Not ending before 26 March 2019 02:04 UTC

Hello! I'm Vermont, an SWMT patroller and administrator on the Simple English Wikipedia. I'm requesting global sysop permissions to help deal with vandalism and spam on small wikis, specifically in the xwiki deletion backlog and those requests on SRM which can be handled by global sysops. Thank you, Vermont (talk) 02:04, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

I mainly edited on Chinese Wikipedia and got IP block exemption there, but many times I also edited on other Wikimedia projects, like Japanese Wikipedia and Wiktionary, so I urgently need global IP block exemption. Sincere thanks and sorry for my bad English. -- 阿万音鈴羽 (talk) 17:22, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Yvtou

I am a user from Chinese Wikipedia. Since Wiki is blocked in mainland China, I have to use a proxy to edit. Unfortunately, the proxy I used is in the range of global IP block. I have got the local exemption for Chinese Wiki. However, when I want to link Zh Wiki page to the Wikidata, I cannot do this due to the global IP block on Wikidata. And it really cost me a lot of time switching on and off the proxy to finish this kind of "link to wikidata" edit. Therefore, I would like to request for IP block exemption for the convenience in edit between Chinese Wiki and Wikidata, or other wiki projects. Thanks for your kind consideration, --Yvtou (talk) 08:31, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for PlyrStar93

Not ending before 12 March 2019 02:54 UTC

Hi everyone! I have been informed that the global renaming queue is getting backed up for Chinese related usernames, and the GR team need more renamers that speak the language and can judge if the requested name is in line with policy. I can also handle requests at zh:Wikipedia:更改用户名 so those who request there don't have to wait for too long. Meanwhile, I will do my best to examine if the request is made in good faith (i.e. I will check if the user is attempting to use another name to avoid scrutiny, impersonate other users, conduct sockpuppetry, make excessive renaming requests or otherwise disrupt the community). I understand that account renaming process is not taken lightly, as it consumes server resources and therefore requests should be evaluated carefully. With all that said, I hope that I am able to join the team and reduce the backlog for Chinese users. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 02:54, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

    That requires a RFC to change the policy about appointing GIE. IIRC, I think some people had a concern with (locally) unelected person doing deletion. Some community even requested an opt-out from his tool performing a deletion. — regards, Revi 16:56, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
    The bot adds a delete template on arwiki and commonswiki instead of deleting pages directly, and I'm happy to do the same on other wikis if needed. Most communities have been fine making an exception for Synchbot though, since it has a very specific scope. (Synchbot has been running since 2008, so its place in local communities is usually pretty settled.) Either way, I'm fine with annual renewal! —Pathoschild 17:29, 05 March 2019 (UTC)

Global editinterface for Krinkle (renewal)

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

Hi! I'd like to renew the interface editors permission. I joined the interface editors group in 2011 (original request). Since then I've helped maintain many gadgets and scripts used on our wikis by our communities, especially to aid in compatibility for changes made to the MediaWiki software, to apply best practices for performance and security, and other maintenance as requested. I've actively served the community as part of this group for 8 years, and would like to continue this work (previous renewal). Thanks! --Krinkle (talk) 14:57, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Renew global interface editor for Krenair

In my last GEI request it was unclear whether I was being granted it for one year or two years, and so it ended up being somewhere between the two in the confusion. I held these rights from July 2014 until just under a month ago. I just ran into a case where I was going to use them but found myself at a view source screen and remembered they had expired, so figured I should get around to requesting renewal. I use them to help keep gadgets compatible with MediaWiki changes, fix bugs, and generally help people with Wikimedia tech problems. I'm a MediaWiki +2er, OTRS agent, help administer Wikimedia Cloud VPS and the Beta Cluster in particular, and various other things. As you can see from my CA profile I have a non-trivial number of edits on random smaller wikis, often from the use of these rights, and though I've had less time for it in recent years than I used to, I would like to continue to have the ability contribute this way. Expiry notice. --Krenair (talkcontribs) 01:59, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
