Meta has a small active community. When a normal user requires the assistance of an administrator or bureaucrat for some particular task, it is not always easy to find one. This page helps users find one when they need one; asking specific admins directly via their talk pages is one way to elicit a fast response.

Request for Central Notice Banner - Wikipedia Festival in Athens, Greece, on May 12[edit]

Wikipedia blue globe.jpg

We request a central notice banner to call for participation on the great celebration event of Wikipedia on May 12, in Athens, Greece. The event is approved as part of a meta action, is run by wikipedians and is funded by wmf (info). It is turned to a big celebration (the greatest so far in Greece) for the whole Wikiepdia and not only Wikipedia School. Here is the page of the event inside Wikipedia and here on the host's site.

  • text (Greek): Γιορτή Βικιπαίδειας στην Αθήνα - Τρίτη 12 Μαΐου, Τεχνόπολη (Γκάζι)
  • text (English): Wikipedia Festival in Athens - Tuesday, May 12, Technopolis (Gazi)
  • link: _
  • dates: until the end of May 12, 2015
  • projects: all
  • language: el, en

@ManosHacker: Looks like the event ends on 20:30. Would it be okay if the banner is scheduled to end by that time rather than end of the day? --Glaisher (talk) 08:48, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
Of course, please put it up today, until May 12, 20:30 (Greece timezone). Thank you.--ManosHacker (talk) 09:09, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

@Glaisher:. I think you should put it on hold. The banner is pointing to a protected page, as there is no consensus on its title. There is a discussion in greek Agora and we haven't reached to an accepted title. ManosHacker jumped off the discussion to act on his own. -Geraki TL 12:47, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

@Glaisher:. Following the remark above, a vote has been requested in order for users to approve the text of the banner, see el:Βικιπαίδεια:Αγορά#Ψηφοφορία, el:Βικιπαίδεια:Αγορά#Ψήφοι. The result is in favour of the banner as presented above. The event is due for Tuesday, so only one day is left now. --FocalPoint (talk) 21:00, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

I;ve tried to set it up the past hour but can't because of some weird issue. --Glaisher (talk) 12:28, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
For the record, the bug has been fixed now. --Glaisher (talk) 05:57, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

On self-requested blocks[edit]

Hi. I'm being asked (Special:Permalink/12202182#Questions) by 6AND5 to block his account on demand. IIRC in the past this Project looked with reticence the use of the block tool in this way. Is this opinion still shared by my fellow admins? -- MarcoAurelio 22:20, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio:, He also ask me to block him on id.Wikipedia (w:id:Pembicaraan_Pengguna:Aldnonymous#Request). This are connected to Steward_requests/Permissions/2015-05#6AND5.40hy.wikiquote, Stewards'_noticeboard#Personal_insults and Stewards'_noticeboard#Terrible_behavior.2C_lies_of_User:6AND5, possible ragequit, it's better to talk with this user rather than blocking him.--AldNonymousBicara? 22:23, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I don't want to block, good night...--6AND5 (talk) 22:33, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I see no reason to accept such requests. If they want to quit, they can simply quit; no need to block. --Glaisher (talk) 05:57, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Block vandal[edit]

Could somebody please block User:Vit.jurcak who is only trying to vandalize the current election centralnotice? And maybe you could also publish the fix to the centralnotice /cs translation which has been sitting for two days. --Mormegil (cs) 15:40, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

@Mormegil: Yes check.svg Done - I've updated the message and left the user a warning. If he continues after that, he'll be blocked. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio 22:06, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
@Mormegil: Good afternoon. Sorry, I thoung it was private. It will not happen again. Thank you for reading this letter and I will remain silent. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Vit.jurcak (talk)
