This page holds approved requests for temporary global permissions until they expire. Please add new requests on the request page and not here.

Stewards: please do not archive these requests until all temporary rights have been removed. Please move them to the latest archive (linked in the request page's header) after processing. The requests are ordered by the date of removal. Please state the date in bold text at the bottom of the section for ease of processing.

If you remove or extend global rights, please add in bold extended or removed, so the bot knows what can be archived.

Not all global rights changes (such as global IP block exempts) are notified here; please watch Special:Log/gblrights to see them all.

Global IP block exempt for Heffalump1974Edit

Currently can't edit articles on ru-wiki while using VPN (cause some Russian sites, even search engines and e-mail services are blocked due to complicated political affairs with the Ukraine, my home country), thanks, --Heffalump1974 (talk) 13:25, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for DqwyyEdit

Hi, I'm a Wikipedian from Mainland China, where Japanese Wikipedia was blocked recently. I make some cross-wiki contributions (not only at Japanese Wikipedia) with the help of proxy sometimes. I'm not sure whether other wikis will be blocked or not in the future. So I would like to get the global IPBE. Thanks. --dqwyy (talk) from zhwiki 16:41, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for AlimonyEdit

I was hit by a global block of an IP range ( that belongs to my ISP (Bahnhof) in Sweden. Apparently open proxies have been found in this range. Not sure about the details, but it seems like a number of legimitate users are affected by this (see this page) so an exemption would be useful so I can continue contributing to Wikipedia. I posted a global unblock request as well but it was suggested in the comments that exemption could be a way to go. — Alimony (talk) 23:36, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

@Alimony:   Granted for 1 year to expire on 2019-05-28. Please come back one or two weeks before the permission expires so we can renew it should you continue to need it. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:39, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

GIPBE for JpcomicEdit

Although I can't find any autoblocks, I think they are caught in one. Given they are trusted in zhwp and otherwise editing in some other wikis, this flag will help.--Cohaf (talk) 11:47, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

If the user cannot edit Meta-Wiki only, then a local IP block exemption would be more appropriate IMHO. From the TP discussion I think he only means he has problems with Meta? Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:00, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
They seems to suggest they are unable to edit wikimedia projects, I take it globally. Regards, --Cohaf (talk) 14:06, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

Global IP block exempt for DqwyyEdit

I have to use a proxy to edit Wikimedia projects because of the w:Great Firewall of China. I got the right last year but it was expired several days ago. I would like to renew it. Thanks. --dqwyy (talk) from zhwiki 11:18, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Global editinterface for Tpt (renewal)Edit

The editinterface right was given to me in November 2012 and renewed in 2013 and in 2014. I just got this right removed even if it has expired a long time ago. I am using it to help wikis maintain their scripts and lua modules, especially small Wikisources. I did not had much free time to do it in the mast months but I hope to get more now to keep helping.
