Wikipetitions Proposal[edit]

I would love to see suggestions, feedback, and questions related to my proposed Wikimedia project, called Wikipetitions. I would also like for anybody who is interested in the project to edit your name into the People Interested.

This would be a great start for better ways to interact with and communicate with our respective countries lawmakers(when/where permitted), and this kind of collaboration would help clarify the issue at hand!

Please, help my project get started and please help make it shine as a star/top Wiki project!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kyjds (talk)

The process is currently quite slow because it currently deletes lots of DB rows and then do several hundred more read queries. Since I was doing the deletion at the same time the error appeared for you because there was, in wiki terms, an "edit conflict" on the DB side. gerrit:290719 will help with this which will reach Meta next Wednesday. --Glaisher (talk) 16:50, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Revert of vandalism[edit]

There at the Russian version of the page Meta:Central notice administrators, I found five vandalism edits made by an unregistered user two years ago and not yet rolled back. I wanted to cancel them, but I seen a message that I can not. Can I have a possibility to revert vandalism when I find it here on Meta? (I am an administrator of the Wikipedia in Esperanto, and I have a right to delete pages in the Wikipedia in Russian. So, I think I am a believable person.) Gamliel Fishkin 04:14, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
