current requests Steward requests (Global Permissions > approved temporary)
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 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.

Global editinterface and deleter for Pathoschild (renewal)Edit

I use the global editinterface and global deleter permissions to run the Synchbot service and maintain scripts crosswiki (mainly the former now). Although I'm not an active editor anymore, I run Synchbot regularly every month to clear all queued requests. Stewards have said they'd rather not take over Synchbot, so I'd like to continue this work. :) —Pathoschild 14:59, 01 March 2020 (UTC)

Global edit interface for Krinkle (renewal)Edit

Hi, I use the Interface editor permission to help maintain gadgets and site scripts on our wikis, especially in response to changes made to the MediaWiki software, to ensure they remain compatible and follow best practices for performance and security, and any other maintenance as requested by local communities. I've actively served in the interface editors group since 2011 (original request, 2019 renewal), and would like to continue this work. Thanks! --Krinkle (talk) 16:33, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
