Hi! I would like to apply for Global rollback flag. I've spent last few months as a member of the SWMT, monitoring small wikis and undoing spam and vandalism. Now that the summer has ended, I will start using SWViewer again in my work. I've been active in cross-wiki monitoring work for some time and already posses a rollback flag on some projects. GR flag would be a great help to me. --Nadzik (talk) 07:21, 2 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Global rollback for Teles

Hi, folks! I am a former global rollbacker/sysop and had the flags removed when I became a Steward back in 2012. Day by day, I am returning from a partial wikibreak and wouldn’t ask for this permission, but I recently got to know about the swviewer and just find that amazing. I am using it on my mobile combining with IRC patrolling. It’s my new favorite pastime. It requires rollbacker access to work better, so I feel like I would benefit from that. Thanks in advance! Be safe!—Teles «Talk to me ˱C L @ S˲» 22:53, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Requests for global sysop permissions

Global sysop for DannyS712

Not ending before 1 September 2020 08:01 UTC

Hi. I'm requesting GS to be able to better deal with LTAs and spambots. I am a global rollbacker, and am active in cross-wiki counter vandalism and RC patrol. I hold sysop rights on multiple wikis, and am familiar with the toolset. I have reviewed Global sysops and am familiar with the policy. I will be sure to defer to more experienced GS and stewards when in doubt. I'm happy to answer any questions. I can confirm that I have 2FA enabled.

Global IP block exempt for Bieraaa

Hi, I would like to request for a global IP block exemption on Wikimedia Projects. Due to the Internet censorship in China, most Wikimedia Projects are blocked or seriously degraded, necessitates the use of a proxy, VPN, or Tor. Currently, at Chinese Wikipedia, I already have a local IP block exemption (granted since 2015, expired and renewed in 2020), with an established track record of editing history and never abused my privilege. Nevertheless, the global block still prevents me from editing via a proxy at Wikidata (for linking articles between languages), Wikicommons (for uploading images), or the English Wikipedia (When translating articles from English, I often discover inaccurate citations I'd like to correct at its source).

It's cumbersome to apply for local exemptions at individual sites. It would be helpful if a global IP block exemption could be granted, thanks, --Bieraaa (talk) 16:05, 29 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Bieraaa,   Done. You should be aware though, that in some situations you might still need to request local IPBE as global one only exempts you from the global blocks and not from the local ones. --Base (talk) 05:56, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Global rename for Superpes15

Not ending before 17 September 2020 16:57 UTC

Hi everyone, I'm Superpes15, I'm a rollbacker on wikidata and a sysop on it.wiki. I'm also a x-wiki patroller. As a patroller and administrator I have often dealt with users with inappropriate usernames. I've read several policies on inappropriate usernames and I think the itwiki policy is one of the most rigid (but effective against vandalism). I've read and understood the global rename policy and the global renamers policy and I think (and hope) that I can help out with renaming. Obviously, in case of doubt, I would always turn to the most experienced. Thanks for your comments and for attention. --Superpes15 (talk) 16:57, 3 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Global rename for A

Hi everyone, I'm A from Vietnamese Wikipedia. I'd like to help out the global and local renaming processing by requesting for the global renamer right. I am an OTRS member as well as an eliminator on the Vietnamese Wikipedia, a user group that does not exist in many Wikipedias but has the right to make certain admin actions. The main reason I am requesting this right is because there's currently a lack of global renamers on vi.wiki, since both global renamers are busy with their personal lives and are currently on Wikibreak. There're currently some requests that have not been approved for weeks. With this right, I would help reduce the local and global rename backlog.

  •   Strong oppose Following reason will make me oppose this (Lý do để bỏ phiếu chống):
    1. Thỏa hiệp trong với các thành viên dịch máy - Ignore for members abuse machine transltaion (như [1]. Đáng ra cái đó phải bỏ biển xóa nhanh hoặc clk để xóa luôn, chứ cứ để đó thì thành ra là để biên wiki thành cái đống rác??)
    2. Một số bài viết rồi để đó, như [2] hay [3] (Some article write like "write to have")
    3. Uncessary permissions. --Bill Cipher, Stan, Twins, Dipper - Gravity falls and J.Smile 12:56, 15 September 2020 (UTC)[]
    Translation: J.Smile seems to use somewhat broken English, so I will rephrase their points:
    1. They claim that A ignores the abusing of content translation tool on viwiki, which leads to the existing of many bad quality translated articles from enwiki (or more correctly, they claims that A doesn't make any action about this, aside from reverting their speedy deletion template. The real quality of such articles is another story). They also claim that A "make compromise" with users creating such articles, which has no basis I think.
    2. They point out that A has created some stub articles without further improving them, he means "viết rồi để đó" or "viết cho có", in Vietnamese this means something likes "write just for show".
    3. May be they should use singular form here, not plural form like this. MeigyokuThmn (talk) 02:00, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[]
    @J. Smile (Love & V.A.V.I): I've been thinking about what you said for a while but unfortunately it didn't help as I still don't understand what the reasons you mentioned have to do with Global Renamer. But anyway, even if your stated reasons don't make any sense (at least in this context), I'll still do my best to explain the circumstances with you and everyone here:
    1. Okay, this is probably about the use of Content Translation tool in the article "Công nghiệp nhựa". First, you added the "speedy deletion" template to this article with the reason "Machine Translation". I've removed and replaced it with the "rough translation" template. As I mentioned in the edit summary, "machine translation" is not a valid CSD criterion. Vi.wikipedia has a committee in which the quality of the translation can be checked. If the community is of the opinion that the quality of the article is too poor to be rescue at all, it can be deleted immediately. You should have requested a review here instead of requesting a SD. In my opinion, apart from a few minor translation errors, the article wasn't that bad. Please remember: Rude or speedy deletions of articles drive away editors, especially newbies!
    2. May I ask you one question: Have you even checked the corresponding articles on en.wiki from which these two were translated? Probably not, so here: Marcus (son of Basiliscus), Teia, version of 12 September 2017. I translated everything that were in the en.wikipedia's versions of these two articles, not just "viết cho có" as you claimed.
    3. Sorry again, but I don't understand what you mean by "unnecessary"? There are tons of requests that haven't been approved in weeks. I think everyone here should known how urgent the situation is and whether or not it is "necessary" to vote for me? Btw: I also see that you are voting against in almost every major requests here, I wonder what you are trying to achieve with that. -- talk 20:35, 15 September 2020 (UTC)[]

2FA Tester for MrAureliusR

I have read the help page. I use 2FA on all my accounts and was disappointed to see that Wikipedia doesn't offer it to all users by default. I would like it added to my account. Is there an ongoing discussion somewhere about offering the option to all users, or at least extended confirmed? Thanks, MrAureliusR (talk) 05:34, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[]

MrAureliusR,   Done, please make sure not to lose the scratch codes. Re ongoing discussion, I am not sure, there should be a Phabricator ticket about it. The main concern is that people sometimes do lose access when both their authentification device and their scratch codes are lost, this then requires manual verification of their identity by the Trust and Safety team as well as a manual removal of 2FA via shell script by a system administrator. This process does not scale quite well if the number of people who have 2FA, and thus inevitably the number of people who lose access, increase substantially. --Base (talk) 05:44, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[]
Fair enough, that makes sense if issues need to be handled manually. I will check Phabricator. And thanks for approving my request! MrAureliusR (talk) 05:46, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[]

New wikis importer for Sotiale

Hello! I'd like to propose that Sotiale be addded as a new wikis importer to support our small team. As a sysop on BetaWikiversity and Incubator, Sotiale is already well-acquainted with the creation process of new wikis.

Abuse filter helper for Pseudo Classes

Hiya! I'd like to apply for abuse filter helper, because I often view the private abuse filters to understand the settings. As the former rollbacker in zhwiki, I think I've gained a lot of experience in using these rights over the months. Pseudo Classes (talk) 16:53, 9 September 2020 (UTC)[]

How can you view the private filters when viewing them require a special right, like Abuse filter helper? Also, how did being a rollbacker help you with abuse filters? For what will you use the rights? --MF-W 21:14, 9 September 2020 (UTC)[]
