<translate> This page outlines the standards and guidelines related to the use of the user rights assigned to the global sysop user group. If you need help from a sysop or a steward on your project, please see Meta:Requests and proposals and Steward requests/Miscellaneous.</translate>

<translate> Global sysops are highly trusted users with a strong track record of cross-wiki contributions that have sysop and interface administrator privileges on most public wikis, for the purposes of antivandalism and routine maintenance. They are not users with sysop tools on all wikis and they have no extra editorial control over content or the local community. </translate>

Script error: No such module "anchor". <translate>


By default, global sysops may use this global user group's permissions on wikis that meet one or both of the following criteria:

  • fewer than ten administrators exist; or
  • fewer than three administrators have made a logged action within the past two months.

Projects may opt-in or opt-out at their own discretion if they obtain local consensus. Simply inform any steward of the community's decision. A [[<tvar name="1">Steward handbook#Managing-wikisets-for-global-groups</tvar>|wiki set]] is used to specify a list of wikis where global sysops do not have access ([[<tvar name="2">Special:WikiSets/7</tvar>|list]]).

Most global sysops also have global rollback. Unlike the global sysop rights, global rollback is truly global.</translate>

Template:Section <translate>


Requests for global sysop rights should be placed on Steward requests/Global permissions. The request will be approved by a steward if there is a consensus for the user to become a global sysop after a period of discussion of no less than two weeks. The discussion is not a vote; comments must present specific points in favor of or against the user's approval.


Continued global sysop access depends on both activity and the continued support of the Wikimedia community.


Global sysops will automatically lose their access if in six months they've not used the respective rights outside of wikis on which they have local rights.

Vote of confidence:

Any steward may remove a global sysop's rights at any time if they feel the tools have been misused, or if a [[<tvar name="rfc">Requests for comment</tvar>|request for comment]] has shown that a significant minority does not trust the global sysop. If this occurs and the global sysop wants the tools back, a vote of confidence shall occur, where the global sysop must retain the consensus of the community in order to return their access.


This is the list of permissions, with explanations, which global sysops have. The permissions are nearly identical to those of {{<tvar name="admin">ll|Administrator</tvar>|regular administrators}}; however, these permissions apply to any Wikimedia Foundation project that has not opted out of the global sysops' access list. They are not capable of changing any local userrights either (unless they also have appropriate local permissions). </translate>

Global sysops must have user pages on every wiki they use their global sysop access on, which provides contact information or links to their primary user page ([[<tvar name="1">user:Pathoschild/Scripts/SynchCrosswiki</tvar>|creation bot available currently]]). Generally a {{<tvar name="2">ll|Global user pages</tvar>|global user page}} on Meta will cover that requirement, and those users are asked to include a Babel declaration.

For urgent help from a global sysop, join the IRC channel <tvar name="irc-gs">#wikimedia-gs connect</tvar> and type <tvar name="code">!gs</tvar> in the channel to get the attention of global sysops.

If a user cannot resolve a dispute by talking to the global sysop, they can place a complaint on Talk:Global sysops, or contact any steward.

Global sysops may contact each other via the [[<tvar name="1">mail:global-sysops</tvar>|private mailing list]].
