Requests for global rollback permissions

Global rollback for RazorTheDJ

The following request is closed.

I'm a rollbacker at Simple Wikipedia and a former temporary admin of Swahili Wiktionary with experience of 2 years and 2½ yrs respectively. I also have links with Swahili Wikipedia. I contribute to Wikimedia 6 months a year due to boarding high school commitments. I have a history of dealing with anti vandal work and also wikimedia needs a new crop of leaders to close in the generation gap. --RazorTheDJ (talk) 17:33, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Not ending before 11 April 2019 17:33 UTC
  •   Oppose. Absolutely no experience in cross-wiki matters, rarely active. His tenure at the Swahili Wiktionary had minimal action and there's no extensive history of anti-vandal work. The idea that Wikimedia needs new leaders isn't an idea that will stand (I know several young users, I myself am younger than you). Judging by previous requests, looks like a hat collector. Please come back after some more extensive cross-wiki work (working in the SWMT can provide some very good experience). Hiàn (talk) 17:43, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Due to this history of low cross-wiki activity, I'm not going to support. --Stïnger (会話) 17:59, 6 April 2019 (UTC).
  •   Oppose per Hiàn. I add his sawtooth use of WM reflects his inexperience. I think that closing this request prematurely would be wise before having a cloud of red fall in this vote (not very encouraging for a user full of good will).--Eihel (talk) 18:12, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose. Thanks for willingness to serve. I feel it's too early given lack of in depth SMWT experience and reverts aren't in many languages. Regrettably oppose.--Cohaf (talk) 08:31, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Global rollback isn't really a leadership position. If you want to provide an underrepresented perspective in Meta and global work, the best way to do that is by becoming active in the global discussions at the Wikimedia Forum and other Meta-specific pages. You can also subscribe to and participate on Wikimedia-l. If you do want to help with global countervandalism (what this permission is for), then please look into the small wiki monitoring team and help out if you have some time. We generally like to see some experience before granting this permission, so we know how well you can revert across language barriers. – Ajraddatz (talk) 17:36, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Requests for global sysop permissions

Global sysop for Biplab Anand

The following request is closed.
Not ending before 15 April 2019 15:47 UTC

Hello Friends, as stated in my previous requests in 2016, I'm a Global Renamer and active in the Small Wiki Monitoring Team. I have experience with the sysop tool as being a sysop on newiki and maiwiki. This tool would help me to delete vandalism and spam pages. You can find me on IRC under the nick Biplab in multiple Wikimedia channels. I surely concern about the scope of GS and also concern where I can use the tool and where it shouldn't be used. Now I have to ask other global sysops or stewards, but it would be much easier when I can do it by myself. My permission was revoked recently because of my inactivity. If I appointed again as a global sysop, I'll be helpful for maintenance and anti-vandalism works.

Due to real life problems, I were not able to do much previously with this permission. I am truly sorry for this. RN, I am fine, and have some free time. I would like to volunteer and serve actively as a GS. My previous GS requests can be found here:

Thank you for reading my request. Best regards, Biplab Anand (Talk) 15:47, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Requests for global IP block exemption

Global IP block exempt for 悔晚斋

Hi. Sometimes I use the Internet via a VPN for various reasons, e.g. national filter and school firewall, but then I cannot edit Wikimedia sites (enwiki, wikidata). Therefore, I request for a GIPBE. --悔晚斋 (talk) 02:45, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

I have a local IPBE at enwiki in place due to my work environment (which mandates the use of a VPN). I'm a Space leader at the Wikimania wiki (and I edit Meta/Commons), which is affected by the global rangeblock in place. If possible, I'd like a global IPBE from now till after a while Wikimania 2019 gets over (2 months post the end, which would be October).

I am a user from China but currently alomost all Wikipedia projects are blocked in my country. As a result, I have to use a proxy to access them. I have submitted separate applications for local exemption in some projects I frequently edit such as zhwiki (already granted), enwiki and commons, but sometimes I need to make minor edits in other projects, that's why I need a global exemption.

I am in P.R.China right now, because of the political reasons, most of the wiki projects (including zh wp, ja wp, zh-yue wp, wuu wp, ug wp, zh wikinews etc.) are blocked in this country. I have to ask for a global IP block exemption in order to edit those blocked wiki projects, thanks, --Pattonwang (talk) 16:46, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Currently you are not prevented from editing? Ruslik (talk) 08:22, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
@Pattonwang:? Ruslik (talk) 12:00, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
有这个权限不代表您在那些项目上不会被禁止编辑的,如果您是认为获得是权限后可一劳永逸,建议您在个别项目上申请ip封禁豁免。(Noticing that this right cannot bypass local ip blocks)-- CreampieGolden State Finals Champion 13:16, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Just to clarity "most of the wiki projects are blocked" is not true. To be more exact, only those Chinese related projects are blocked in China. So this user can access to Meta-wiki without proxies and request for global IP block exemption. (Answer to "Currently you are not prevented from editing?" ) He has been granted IP block exemption on zhwp locally but also wants to edit other Chinese related projects. Considering that those Chinese projects hardly block proxies locally unless they vandalize and this user may be only prevented by global blocks, a global IP block exemption may be helpful. --94rain Talk 15:09, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
@94rain:. They aren't censored by GFW mostly but they will be blocked as using proxies (people tend to be lazy to switch). Meta isn't blocked for most proxies, so they can edit here. Hence they are still blocked. In general although I know this isn't a permission needing voting, having such a low edit count and without demonstrated crosswiki work I'm against granting such rights. The user can just use their proxy to edit zhwp and then switch to normal editing for the rest. We have users in zhwp having GIPBE after only few edits and then start socking. Hence, I would be very concerned by such requests.--Cohaf (talk) 06:53, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Considering that this editor only made few edits, neither am I inclined to support this request. I suggest the editor make some more contributions to zhwp and request again after a few months. If the editor really want to edit on a specific project, please request for a local exemption or find other ways to access to those projects instead of using open proxies (For example: zh:Help_talk:如何访问维基百科#使用Nginx本地反代无需代理服务器直连维基百科). --94rain Talk 07:26, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for 钉钉

The above-mentioned user requested for Global IPBE in zhwiki locally, but the request is turned down procedually (see link for discussion). The request is deferred by me as the applicant stated that he cannot edit Meta due to the IP blocks in effect.

The rationale of the request is as follows, as stated by the applicant: The applicant is currently residing in China and thus have to rely on proxy tools in order to access Wikimedia wikis. Since 23 April 2019, all language versions of Wikipedia are no longer accessible in China due to the censorship. Currently, the applicant is holding local IPBE on zhwiki. --無聊龍 (talk) 14:32, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

Cohaf also raises several good points. Come back after gaining more experience. Hiàn (talk)/editing on mobile account 13:38, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Per above concerns. Also, where is the reason of this request? --Stïnger (会話) 14:28, 30 April 2019 (UTC).
  •   Oppose No rationale for request, no experience in the renaming area. IMO this should be SNOW close. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:42, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
  •   Not done - early closure after initial comments. If you are requesting a rename, please visit SRUC and we would be happy to help there. Otherwise, please get some more experience across Wikimedia before applying for these rights again. – Ajraddatz (talk) 15:06, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

CAPTCHA exemption for Dimon2711

Hi! I need CAPTCHA exemption permissions to faster fighting with vandalism. Thanks!--Dimon2711 (talk) 15:49, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Question: Which wikis do you find difficulty in vandalism fighting? Have you tried User:Krinkle/Tools/Global_SUL and then it wait for a period of time for accounts to be autoconfirmed? Not a big deal permission but I am thinking why not eventually GR (Global Rollback), before that just using normal undo? Thanks--Cohaf (talk) 16:12, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
    @Cohaf: OK, I'll try. I find difficulty in vandalism fighting today in wowiki and sqwiki--Dimon2711 (talk) 16:43, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
