Remove global IP block exempt for Pessimist2006

Global IP block exempt for Joytz

I'm in China and need proxy to accelerate access to Wikipedia for educational purposes. Info: "Your current IP address is 172.104.127.197 and the block ID is #361743". I'm requesting for global IP block exemption permission., thanks, --Joytz (talk) 04:04, 5 March 2022 (UTC)

@Joytz: If you want to the edit Chinese Wikipedia, please follow the instruction on this page; if you want to edit the English Wikipedia, please read this section and send an email. Global IP block exemption permission does not allow you to edit either two sites. Stang 16:26, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
I thought you need a global IP block exemption first and then you can request local IP block exemption? Joytz (talk) 03:37, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
Also, should I be asking for this in case I need to edit in the future but cannot, or should I ask this only when there is something I want to edit now? Joytz (talk) 03:39, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
No, global IPBE is not a prerequisite for local IPBE. You could request for now if you though it is useful even in the future, but at least you need to clarify which project(s) you intended to edit. Stang 01:49, 16 March 2022 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for Nahian

The current broadband service that I use, they are giving the same IP to all customers. They are not giving any separate private IP.

Global rename for BureibuNeko

Not ending before 20 April 2022 07:15 UTC

Hi everyone, before my first retired, I was active on rename requests for my home wiki, where I assisted the local RenameUser, and I consider myself to have some experience (though I'm not an admin or administrator). Recently I went back to the local renaming work and I noticed that there are many backlogs of requests that may be in line with policies waiting to be processed locally, I would like to be able to get this permission to deal with the backlog. Granted, I'm still underactive in the global, but if I can, I'd also like to be able to get a temporary permission to deal with the backlog and prove my ability (But it looks like there is no precedent?), thanks.--BureibuNeko (talk) 07:15, 6 April 2022 (UTC)

That's why i said "Granted, I'm still underactive in the global". Hope i explained the question. BureibuNeko (talk) 09:13, 6 April 2022 (UTC)

Global rename for CROIX

Not ending before 8 May 2022 15:52 UTC

I am applying for global rename permissions because many people go through the stress of having a “bad name” that they would like to get rid of. In fact, I experienced this, and I want to help others who may want to change their usernames. A little bit of information about me is that I am from Codrington, Antigua and Barbuda, and I am very interested in politics and demography. I think I am a qualified candidate because…

  • I would have a very quick response time, as I spend most of my day working on a Wikimedia projects.
  • I am online whenever I can access the internet.
  • Although I cannot say I am perfect, I am getting better at dealing with people who may be a little angry.
  • When dealing with requests, I will be as neutral as possible, and, unless the name may be interpreted as offensive by others, give them the username they would like.
  • I also think I am experienced, being an active editor for over a year now.
  • I understand this is an important rule, and that it can be abused, this is why I will avoid using the role unless I absolutely need to, or if a user requests a new username.

In conclusion, these are the reasons why I think I am a qualified candidate for this role. I remind you not to confuse me with “Croix”, my username is all uppercase. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by CROIX (talk) 15:59, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

  •   Oppose --MdsShakil (talk) 18:17, 24 April 2022 (UTC)
  •   Neutral Global renamer is a minor role, akin to the VRT permissions agent role. One does not need to have sysop let alone bureaucrat rights for this role. This is a good-faith request, so I cannot oppose this, but that being said, I'm not seeing enough global activity to justify supporting. Dmehus (talk) 20:24, 24 April 2022 (UTC)
  •   Oppose If anyone hasn't sysop rights in any Wikimedia projects, then we expect enough global activities for the GR rights. —Yahya (talkcontribs.) 22:05, 24 April 2022 (UTC)
  •   Neutral I don't care about whether you are an admin or not, but since there is no evidence of experience I cannot support. On enwiki you have 5 edits in project namespace, 3 deleted, 2 at Wikiprojects; I don't think that is sufficient to prove that you have experienced the administrative aspect of Wikimedia of which GRN is a part.

Global exemption to CAPTCHA for Victor Trevor

Hi. As a monitoring the SWViewer, sometimes I can't undo the edits on several wikis. I mostly reverting blatant vandalism out there, and the CAPTCHA confirmation is blocking me.

They've a block on trwiki (their home wiki) so I asked for explanations in private, they told me they tried to get an unblock but were not believed, I hope that the blocking issue will be clarified as soon as possible.

Ugh, these quietly expiring rights. Similarly to Xaosflux, here for a third successive time for the rights to view local filters results at local wikis and to support their maintenance.

My need is no different from previous requests, my volunteerism continues. There have been no other status changes in my roles as an advanced rights holder at wikis. There has been no particular change in community requirements or security that says that the tasks that I do are now redundant. Rights have been used in the past 12 months to support wikis to build and maintain their local abuse filters and their local js/css pages.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:13, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

    Per CM, 2[1234qwer]4 and Stang I am withdrawing my support. This issue hasn't just been on Wikidata and zhwiki. This has also been an issue on simplewiki (as can be seen here) - this wasn't a situation where there was loads of vandalism and it was an emergency, this was just one account who vandalised two or three times. Protection wouldn't have been used even from a local sysop, and we have a strict protection policy on simplewiki. There was no checking with users on IRC either unlike the other situations. There was another protection on simplewiki where you noticed your mistake and removed the protection a minute after but this is clearly quite a large problem, going into multiple wikis and protecting pages likely without even checking local guidelines. These rights aren't even supposed to be used in an emergency - using your tools for something they're not meant for is bad enough, breaking local policy is worse. While I'm sure you'd still make a good abuse filter maintainer and global interface editor, I think these issues make you a net negative with these tools and so I am   opposing. --Ferien (talk) 15:43, 2 April 2022 (UTC)

    I'm also a bit concerned with out-of-purpose use of a tool - and I'm referring not in this specific case but in general. Policies should be respected and, in the event of an emergency and without active local admins, a steward is first of all asked to protect (policies allow stewards to intervene during an emergency on a non-GS wiki and, seeing the log, there was at least an active steward at the time). Also not everyone may be aware that it was discussed on IRC, especially since the decision was probably made after talking with non-admin/steward users on IRC. So it would have been better to write "Repeated vandalism - discussed on IRC and no local sysop and steward active". I'm still in favor of both flags because it has happened sporadically and given Billinghurst's experience and quality of work, but I notice that it isn't the first time it has happened (as pointed out by Camouflaged Mirage). The flags should only be used for the purpose for which they were assigned! I, as an ombuds, have never made a CU for vandalism reasons, it's something not foreseen by the policy (and even if it's not explicitly forbidden it doesn't mean that it can be do), although technically I could have done it. Superpes15 (talk) 10:06, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
    Sorry, after the other comments, I have to   Support only AFM, while I   Weak oppose to GIE. When I wrote the previous comment there were reported protections only on two wikis. I found for example also this protection and, seeing the history, there was no emergency for which to semi-protect indefinitely the user talk (only 1 edit in the 2 years prior to protection). Also, if it had been an emergency, the semi-protection would have had to be very very short. As much as I'm sure that these are simply bona fide mistakes, an experienced user should never fall into these issues, and I'm really sorry if they lose this right but, given the situation, it seems to me the most correct decision. For these things there are local sysops and I have always avoided self-protecting my pages to avoid controversy but I always made others decide if it was necessary and how long. For the future, I think it would have been better to separate requests for different flags (and whose discussions have different lengths), to avoid confusion. --Superpes15 (talk) 15:00, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

    On hold pending responses in other sections.

Not impressed by such sneaky misuse of tools, without even informing local community as far as I can tell from your contributions around that time. ~~~~

    Nothing sneaky about it, and I reject that use of a loaded word, you just need to ask. [Anyway, what do I have to need to be sneaky about in that regard.] I have no conflict of interest, and it this is part of xwiki vandalism response. I discussed it at the time, think it was in the #wikidata channel. You should also note the regular times that I request protection for numbers of pages, or alerted to vandalism, at WD. Very occasionally with that right I can put a short block in place and inform local admins at a range of wikis—it isn't very often. And I will admit that I didn't give it a lot of attention at the time, so no, I don't have good records for doing it, so in that regard I will admit casualness nor giving it much concern.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:18, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
    Please also note the history of the files. And the reports User:COIBot/XWiki/tre.it, User:COIBot/XWiki/wind.it and there are another one or two, which I cannot remember at the moment.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:26, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
    At the time, were you aware that Wikidata was no longer a GS wiki? --Rschen7754 02:45, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
    @Billinghurst Same question about the zhwiki action noted below, are you missing some GS overlap - or just think that GIE's should perform general protection wherever it could be useful for antivandalism? — xaosflux Talk 10:12, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
    If you discussed it on IRC and there were local admins online, I'm not sure why they couldn't have handled it themselves. If there were none, well, I'm not sure how much authority that discussion would have had. The links to indefinite and one-year protections of your talk page shared by Rschen7754 below show that your actions have indeed not been limited to short blocks, and your statement above makes this seem even more concerning to me than it already did. ~~~~

  •   Oppose for GIE, sorry. Since you have Hoo man's active sysop.js installed, I think it is pretty clear for you to distinguish if a site is gswiki or not. Although protection action - part of fighting against x-wiki abuse- is in good faith, it is indeed a misuse of GIE's permission. Similar to steward access, "[stewards] typically will not use their access unless there is an emergency", and cases listed above failed to meet the criteria of "emergency" in my view. Stang 13:51, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
  •   Oppose for GIE. Would reconsider if the ability to protect pages was removed from the set (which IMO it should be). I see another content page protection on fawiki, and on frwiki and semi-protecting one's own talk page on idwiki, enwikivoyage before it became GS, eswiki, ruwiki, bswiki, [3], [4], [5]. --Rschen7754 15:47, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
    IMO the ability to protect pages is useful for GIE in situations like this (though in this specific case the user had sysadmin privileges), and the permission requires enough trust to believe a user that they will not misuse it – else it should be removed. (Different discussion though.) ~~~~

    Note that the human-readable summary of the right is "Change protection settings and edit cascade-protected pages" (emphasis mine). I'm not sure if MediaWiki indeed requires the protect right for editing cascade-protected pages, but if it does, it certainly shouldn't be removed (at least not until the right is split into protecting and something like editcascadeprotected).

  •   Support per DannyS712. The incident(s) identified above appear to be quite minor and could be easily resolved by creating an opt out WikiSet for GIE. Dmehus (talk) 18:31, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
    Note that "Projects may not opt out" Superpes15 (talk) 18:36, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
    To be quite honest, I think that'd be worth an RfC to allow projects to opt out of global-interface-editor as there's no real need to not allow that. We have stewards, around which wikis cannot opt out. Dmehus (talk) 02:06, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
    This flag is often used by WMF so I don't think an opt-out will be useful Superpes15 (talk) 09:36, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
    Superpes15, then they should have these permissions, arguably, as part of their staff and/or sysadmin permissions, thus requiring no need for this global group, in my opinion. The community can just advise the ways in which they would like WMF to use these specific user rights (i.e., for CentralNotice banner administration and creation, UX design improvements to align with the WMF brand standards, etc.). Dmehus (talk) 19:02, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
    Not only by WMF but also by other cross-wiki tool developers where removing some wikis would not be helpful. I think it is obvious that this permission therefore requires sufficient trustworthiness to not use it for other purposes, so I do not follow Dmehus's arguments, but if they would like to start an RfC they are free to do so (rather than continuing discussion here). ~~~~

  Support for both rights, and I looked carefully at the comments regarding GIE; this is despite some of the concerns being valid. Personally, I do not see an issue using GIE out of policy where this is sufficiently justified; however I have to agree with Ferien that neither the simple.wiki case nor protecting your own talk pages come under that category. But should we be opposing someone just for minor errors like this, especially when this is the first time the issue has come up? In my opinion, no; especially since the net effect of these errors are minor at worst. I would just ask that the user be careful with this in the future; as can be seen, arguments such as "I will admit casualness nor giving it much concern" won't work with this community. This user has been using that right for legitimate purposes after all. Leaderboard (talk) 18:43, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per above. Out of process page protections are not okay. -FASTILY 08:00, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
    Fastily, I had thought that the issue was merely editing protected pages on GS-opted out wikis. Do GIEs have the ability to protect or unprotect pages? If so, I personally think this needs a wider discussion, as page protection actions should be restricted local administrators and, secondarily, to stewards (all wikis) and Global Sysops (wikis that have not opted out). Nevertheless, I wouldn't want to not renew Billinghurst's GIE over the above instance(s). I think Billinghurst would take this as a clear learning opportunity to make the necessary corrections in approach and, if it continued this year, then I doubt the community would support renewal next year. Dmehus (talk) 17:40, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
    @Dmehus the current technical layout has one permission, (protect) which empowers users to both edit cascade-protected pages (arguably within the normal remit of GIE's) and to set/unset protection levels. phab:T71607 has been open for about 5 years requesting this be split just as editprotected was split. — xaosflux Talk 18:43, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
    Xaosflux, ah, yeah, that makes sense. I didn't realize the ability to edit cascade-protected pages required the protect permission. Splitting the protection actions from the editing actions would be fine, but I wonder if there might be a better approach? It's not clear to me, though, what that other approach might be, since I guess it's a bit tricky if the protection originates from an upstream fully protected page. Another (potentially related) issue, too, that's long outstanding is the ability for protection/restriction levels "above" the fully protected protection/restriction level to be overridden for creation protection because the protect action only checks for whether the user has the editprotected and/or protect user right(s), I think, rather than checking to see whether they have matching higher level protection level user right and/or because there's only one protect right.

Without knowing billinghurst's opinion about relation of GIE to antivandalism, I can't support the request. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:07, 5 April 2022 (UTC)

abusefilter-maintainer for Daimona Eaytoy

The following request is closed Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
Not ending before 17 April 2022 11:41 UTC

Hello all. After thinking about it for a while, I'm applying for the abusefilter-maintainer group. I often monitor the AbuseFilter dashboard on logstash, and there are many filters out there that are either terribly slow, or simply broken. In the past, I've sometimes left maintenance requests at the local village pumps, but some issues have never been fixed, and new ones continue to emerge. As an AF-maintainer I would make these fixes myself, as long as the functionality of the filters wouldn't change; example fixes are checking for divisions by zero and optimizing regexps. FTR, I'm already an abusefilter-helper (since 2018). Thanks, --Daimona Eaytoy (talk) 11:41, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

  •   Question: @Daimona Eaytoy: how would you deal with situations where a community that has active abusefilter editors exists? (Regarding one of your examples to Base above (w:en:Wikipedia:Edit_filter_noticeboard/Archive_9#Filters_that_should_be_fixed, discussing before acting seemed useful.) I can't see anyone having issues with purely technical fixes, but optimizing regexps could be at the expense of readability/maintainability for local administrators. — xaosflux Talk 14:32, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
    @Xaosflux: All fixes would be purely technical, and regexps would only be optimized if they make the filter too slow (so that it appears on the profiling dashboard on logstash), or prevent its execution entirely due to reaching the backtracking limit. That said, I would check case by case how impacting a certain change could be. Sometimes, there's essentially a single way to fix something (e.g. in the enwiki examples, you need to check whether an array element exists, and there aren't many ways to do that), in which case I'd be comfortable making the change myself. I personally know how important readability and maintainability are with filters and code in general, but I also know that sometimes it all boils down to personal preference. I would certainly try to rewrite the code as best as I can so that others can still read it and explain the changes in the "Notes" section. Also, if I feel that my changes may impact readability I'd leave a message to the village pump instead of making the change. However, I wouldn't do that when I'm sufficiently confident about my changes, just because someone could find my code less readable because they have different preferences (that is, unless those preferences can be inferred by reading the filter itself). --Daimona Eaytoy (talk) 15:11, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
      Support obviously technically competent for this, and I am not concerned that updates would create any purposeful editor-facing effects. Please do take care in leaving notes (generally in the filter notes) about changes introduced when there are local maintainers. It can be easy to annoy others with things that seem technically irrelevant (e.g. indentation spaces) or that may be in place for some sort of reason (some sort of "or %string" chain vs a "contains" expression) if there is any local resistance it is rarely worth arguing over. Most local abusefilter editors should warmly accept your expertise! — xaosflux Talk 17:13, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
