Meta-Wiki 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.

Languages interface[edit]

Could someone introduce the new language interface to translate pages on a easily way on Wikinewspage? Wikinews Meta page is the only one without the new interface like Wikiqoute Meta page, Wikipedia Meta page and others. If anyone from the sysops can do that, that would be great!

It is easy to do, but could you please copyedit the existing text there? I am not sure it is up-to-date and simple enough to take translators' time working on it. --Base (talk) 14:15, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
Once my update revision is restored on that page, I will give you a ping. Livenws (talk) 22:30, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Could someone help fix the translation errors with Template:Welcomeip?[edit]

It's a mess. PokestarFan ·Drink some tea and talk with me ·Stalk my edits ·I'm not shouting, I just like this font! 03:48, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

It is probably more appropriate to move it to the translation system rather than leverage on old methodology.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:58, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Cancellation of wrong page[edit]

Hi all, may someone cancel this page. It has been created by mistake instead of that of "limited adminship". --Ilario (talk) 14:29, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done! — regards, Revi 14:44, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
I think MassMessage sender should be enough for your purposes. Not all MassMessage senders have rights on temporarily basis. I am positive giving the right to you, I will wait a little bit so that people could comment though. --Base (talk) 14:45, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Grant MassMessage-sender permissions to Ilario[edit]

Given the above I move to grant Ilario massmessage sender permissions on this project for his WMCH work. Previously requested at Meta:Requests for limited adminship/Ilario. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 07:50, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

+1 from me. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 07:50, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
+1 I'm also agree.--Syum90 (talk) 08:44, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

I left a question to @Seddon (WMF): here informing him that MediaWiki:Centralnotice-template-Strategy2030 Phase1Prop banner is locked and impossible for anyone to translate. 24 hours has past and the banner is still untranslated, in English only on a Welsh language Wiki. He is not responding, therefore can someone please unlock it or remove it from cywiki asap? Thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 08:49, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

@Llywelyn2000: Hi. I'm not sure what's happening with that banner. In User talk:Syum90#Banner I asked him for a translation. It didn't appeared, it did later and now it's blank... In any case could you please try and add the translation there? I can try to set it as published later. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:40, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: Many thanks! just traslated. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 12:26, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Published. Let's hope it works this time... —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:13, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
