Global rollback for ImprovedWikiImprovment

The following request is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
Not ending before 26 June 2020 02:36 UTC

I have been a global user for a number of years now. I also have an old account, WikiImprovment78, which I used between 2014 and 2018. Since then I've used this account. I have rollback currently on the English and Simple English Wikipedias. I would like global rollback to make anti-vandalism work easier on other wikis, such as meta. I want to move my anti-vandalism work more global as I have became involved with dealing with global LTAs on the simplewiki. I also have became involved recently with the SWMT, and I will monitor changes on its IRC channel. Thanks, IWI (chat) 02:36, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Oppose. No xwiki experience, no demonstrated need. Your account have edits on 14 projects - most of which are on large wikis like enwiki and wikidatawiki. I see only one SWMT revert (which was made yesterday). Not now. Sgd. —Hasley 03:04, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose You haven't enough cross-wiki activities. Why not if you become more active in the future? --Uncitoyentalk 08:20, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Well your crosswiki matrix shows that you have only edited 14 wiki on this account (1 or 2 are small wiki) 6 on other account you mentioned. Regretful to say but I don't consider this experience enough for global rights, particularly global rollback which is truly global. IMHO take some time and come back later. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:29, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Strong oppose because this user had been blocked at enwiki in February 2019. Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker (talk) 08:47, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
This was due to an isolated edit warring incident, from which actions I regret and will not repeat, for the record. IWI (chat) 09:00, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose, you are only active on a handfull of wikis, and a majority of your edits are done on just a few of them (source). I could support you in a future, but for now, just stick to getting more active. Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 11:10, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Global rollback for DutchTina

I can't use SWViewer anymore since I don't have rollback anymore because I quit being a sysop at my former homewiki. I was planning to do some xwiki patrolling again today (and in the future) but this error showed up. I would love to spent my vacation being useful against xwiki vandalism again. :) DutchTina (talk) 16:26, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Not going to vote but DutchTina resigned as an admin at NL-wiki shortly before being desysopped during a desysop procedure. Not mentioning this while mentioning your adminship at NL-wiki is a bit misleading imho. Natuur12 (talk) 16:36, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
    • Yeah, so I quit being a sysop. Just mentioning this here without a background story looks like stirring up imho. I always functioned well in the tasks I had, there were other things that went wrong. Nothing to worry about in this position. ‐‐DutchTina (talk) 16:42, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
      • But that’s not up to you to decide. You should present the facts, after which people can make their own decision. Like Natuur12 I decided not to vote as well, but maybe that was a mistake from me. I’m more and more convinced you’ll not learn from your mistakes. Trijnsteltalk 23:19, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
        • After having read their short presentation above and these edits on their talk page, I agree. Their twisted summary of what went on earlier this month on nl:wiki clearly shows they still just don't get it. DutchTina's short temper and their lack of trustworthiness are liabilities in any WMF function. Wutsje (talk) 04:26, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

  •   Oppose misleading requests shouldn't lead to granted rights. --Mirer (talk) 23:57, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
    • I don't see why the request is 'misleading'. I've lost my rollback rights because I asked to remove my sysop rights. I've been transparant about the desysop and wrote it was hurting me. So 1. I quit being a sysop and 2. I lost my rollback rights with that removal. Now my rollback at nlwiki has been restored but I can still use global rollback in SWViewer in order to fight against vandalism. Would you please explain to me what part of that is misleading at this point? ‐‐DutchTina (talk) 11:15, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
      • Not mentioning that the desysop procedure would have been successful, publishing emails meant for admins only and abusing your tools shortly after you announced your resignation. I'm not bringing this up because I want to bash you but because I do care about your well being. The odds are that you having any advanced permissions will bring you into a position that hurts you, resulting in more unwanted behavior. Like the behavior at 12 March. Something hurts you, resulting in you abusing your position. You know I have considered you a friend all this time, but friends speak up when one of their friends is doing something stupid, like getting a new advanced permission when there is evidence that they are not ready and misleading the community. Natuur12 (talk) 17:47, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
        • That's very kind, I did not know you considered me as a friend. I've never had any friends (I'm serious). Too bad I've lost you as a then. ‐‐DutchTina (talk) 18:32, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Hello everyone I'm Samuele2002 I'm global rollbacker since 2017 and I'm very active in the fight against vandalism and cross-wiki spam.

Thanks. --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 21:07, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

After he was inactive from July 2018, he returned from April 2020, and has since started to take on several other tasks.

Requests for global rename permissions

Global rename for 蟲蟲飛

I am an active administrator on the zhwiki. Acording to zhwiki Username policy, Misleading usernames, Disruptive or offensive usernames and Promotional names will be blocked, but they may change their usernames, then administrator can unblock the user. However there are no active users have global rename flag on the zhwiki, and some new users don’t know how to come here to request for rename. I would like to request global rename flag, so that I can help more. I also want to help more on meta.wiki--May♡♡→♡℃Talk 03:32, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Global rename for Hamish

Not ending before 16 June 2020 07:23 UTC

I'm very sorry to parallel this request, which is somewhat nonsense and inappropriate at this time, with another request from my wonderful colleague here. And I know it's only around 2 weeks since my GRo. But, honestly, I should have posted my application days ago, but I saw active Sotiale on our rename request page, hence the postponement. However, I think I need stand out and request to help local rename request, as well as for cross-wiki. I have comprehended the policys above and I consider I can handle the permission.

Global rename for DEVELOPER.PRO

Not ending before 13 July 2020 06:33 UTC

I requested this renamer permission. I am an editor on KO wikipedia(expanded) and Commons. I saw a lot of people who want to change their name (including me) on Meta Wiki and Ko Wikipedia. However, there are not a lot of renamers on meta and ko wiki, so I wanted to help them! For example, I am making an request of renaming, but other renamers are busy, so it's delaying. I want to help people who want to rename themselves. Of course, I will resign permission when it's no longer needed. Thanks for your consideration and watch out for Sars-Cov-2.

Global abuse filter helper for ZI Jony

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

I'm active on several Wikimedia projects. I'd like to request GAFH to view private filters and private log entries. This will allow me to view details of private abuselog, and will assist me in tracking vandals/spam and reporting them. Thanks! -- Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 16:59, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Eh...your reason for requesting the userright would appear to be circular. In what manner will the ability to access private abuse filters assist your anti-spam capabilities, and why is whatever increase in information you would obtain worth surrendering to you the unadulaterated knowledge of every targeted vandalism/spam filter on all public projects? Best, Vermont (talk) 17:18, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Vermont, thanks for asking. When I'm dealing abuse and spam I use Special:AbuseLog and report to wiki sysops and/or SRG. There are some private abuse filters on the some wikis and some are global. Sometimes abuse filter didn't stop the edit, that I can see the diff amd report them. Abuse filters with detailed log entry can make sure that I'm reporting for action the account is correct. Thanks! Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 19:33, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Your message neglects to address any substance of my concerns and your penultimate sentence is nearly completely unintelligibe. From what you have written, the most I can gather is you seemingly hold the belief that this userright will help you to pursue antivandalism more efficiently; I contest this notion, as the only result will be you being able to view private filters, a change with no effect on the typical antivandalism workflow regardless of project or style. Such filters do not hide edits, and rather hide what triggers them, usually for amply good reason. As such, I   Oppose granting you this userright. Vermont (talk) 03:22, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Yet another feather for the hat. I see no demonstrated need for this nor that the user has any trusted rights on any project. filters are rather sensitive and they often contain an amount of PII and I would oppose anyone receiving this right without having adequate (demonstrated) trust from the community. Praxidicae (talk) 18:10, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
    Praxidicae, you know that GAFH doesn't have any right to modify filters, it just gives right to view private filters and private log entries. What do you mean by "adequate trust from the community"? Thanks! Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 19:33, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose. Praxidicae has a great point here: some filters contain some amounts of PII, and, as such, users with this right need to be very trusted by the community, which, unfortunately, is not your case. Also, per Vermont, being able to view the filters will change nothing in your antivandalism efforts. —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 03:57, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
