Wikipedia:Global rights policy
|This page is a policy on the Simple English Wikipedia.|
Many people agree with it. They see it as a standard idea that all users should follow. When changing this page (except for minor errors like typos), please check that other people agree with your changes. Use the talk page when you are not sure or when you want to suggest a change.
|This page in a nutshell: People with global rights can use those rights on the Simple English Wikipedia subject to the rules below.|
The following is the guideline of how users who are members of global groups should use those groups on the Simple English Wikipedia.
Global rollback[change source]
Users with global rollback may use it here provided they abide by our rules. If a global rollbacker is asked to stop using rollback on this project by an administrator they must stop. Global rollbackers should not use any of their global rollback permissions, such as
suppressredirect, unless it is to directly address vandalism.
Stewards that also have local rights that duplicate their steward rights may use those rights here. Any steward who does not hold a local right may not use their steward rights unless it is for outright vandalism or heavy attack both of which have not been, or can not be, dealt quickly by the local community. Local community members who are also stewards must not use their steward rights locally, unless allowed for by policy. Office actions may be carried out by which ever steward is asked, although local stewards should be the last choice.
Staff & Sysadmin[change source]
Employees or other agents of the Wikimedia Foundation may use their staff and/or sysadmin rights to perform whatever action they require for the execution of their duties.
Global sysop[change source]
The Simple English Wikipedia has opted out of global sysops.
The ombuds commission can use their global rights on this project solely as they themselves deem fit. They are WMF appointed without input from the community. They should feel free to ask a local oversighter for help in seeing suppressed data.
