Most of this is all global, controlled from meta. I think this and the page about global groups could be merged together. Really the only thing that needs to be dealt with is the issue of whitelisting (which is the only action done locally). Mr.Z-man 00:25, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Which global groups page are you referring to? The only one I can think of is WP:GRU, but what that page has is pretty different compared to this one. GRU has information for "outsiders" coming into and using their rights, while this page has information for admins. You're probably not even talking about that one though... - Rjd0060 (talk) 01:29, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
I also just found Wikipedia:Global groups - that, IMO, should be replaced with a Special: page similar to Special:ListGroupRights, but that's neither here nor there. - Rjd0060 (talk) 01:29, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
No, WP:GRU was what I was referring to. Everything except whitelisting could probably be merged into some sort of WP:Global stuff page, with whitelisting in the block policy. Mr.Z-man 01:31, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
I'd think it should stay here, until there is actually some Global stuff page to merge it too. This is really the only thing of its kind at the moment. - Rjd0060 (talk) 01:51, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

I would say, merge and redirect to WP:BLOCK#Global blocking. There's unlikely to be much to say on this, and that's probably a more sensible location, related to blocking rather than rights. FT2 (Talk | email) 09:08, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

WP:BLOCK is not a "how-to" guide, while this page is, of sorts. I still think it should stay at this location until there is more "global stuff" and we can create a page with it all. - Rjd0060 (talk) 15:34, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Marked as policy[edit]

Why? Nothing here looks like policy, just facts about something beyond our control. --Kotniski (talk) 19:02, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

I reckon that the information will be, at some point, moved to a page with further information similar to this, or even to the Blocking policy. Of course this page does contain information, but I find it similar in function to WP:Privacy Policy, WP:OTRS, and other things in Category:Wikipedia official policy, therefore did not see the problem in marking it as a policy. If this was an error on my part, and other users agree, we can simply remove the tag. I don't find it to be an issue. - Rjd0060 (talk) 21:30, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Also note, that tagging as policy only comes after being tagged as {{proposed}} for a week. - Rjd0060 (talk) 21:32, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
As long as it gets moved to another policy page soon, then I don't really mind. I'm just wary of creating more and more unnecessary policy pages, when we already have far too many (policy should be clear, simple and compact IMO, not fragmented as it seems to be now).--Kotniski (talk) 15:55, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Of course - at the moment there really isn't anywhere to merge it. It will happen at some point though. Thanks for the comments. - Rjd0060 (talk) 16:16, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Mereged. -- Gurch (talk) 13:45, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
And reverted. Apparently someone disagrees with this, though they haven't stated a reason other than "it's a big change" -- Gurch (talk) 15:47, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

One Question[edit]

Why is the name in camel case? I thought it was just proper titles, not camel cased. This is an interesting question, in my opinion, and it will need an exact answer soon. Thanks. -- MISTER ALCOHOL T C 05:23, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Because it's the name of an extension, which are generally camel case. For example, Wikipedia:CheckUser. --MZMcBride (talk) 06:23, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Merge with block policy[edit]

There is no need for this to be a whole policy on its own, it should be a paragraph in the blocking policy. Can I do this yet, or will someone rollback me without explanation again? -- Gurch (talk) 17:56, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Probably, but I still support the merge.--Kotniski (talk) 11:46, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Category discussion[edit]

This page might get a new policy category; the discussion is at WP:VPP#Wikipedia administrative policy. - Dank (push to talk) 01:03, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
