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.

No open proxies[edit]

Просто какой-то оголтелый «нацизм\тоталитаризм\демократия» блокировать за прокси! Я не про себя – смотрел историю изменений, где QBA-bot периодически банит IP которые и вандализмом не занимались – только по адресному признаку. Ну, как тут люди, а в у вас там в Израиле нет. И притом Википедия сама-то в интернете, но не принимает пользователей, окромя тех у кого нашита звёздочка поясняющая! Поняли? Ещё и на английском. -??? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Тише, пожалуйста. NOP — это вынужденные меры, без этого правила любые блокировки зарегистрированных или незарегистрированных участников не имели бы ни малейшего смысла — обход блокировки был бы делом нескольки кликов, безконечное количество раз. Было бы хорошо никого не блокировать, но увы не у всех кто приходит в проект, который может редактировать каждый, хорошие намерения. Опытные зарегистрированные участники имеют возможность запросить специальный флаг разрешающий обходить блокировки айпи-адресов, а также использовать Tor, в случае если они могут представить любые здравые аргументы зачем им это. P.S. Физически проекты Фонда Викимедиа в США, а не в Израиле. --Base (talk) 20:45, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Quarry crashed?[edit]

I don't know where to ask, mw:Talk:Quarry seems not to be read by any admin. Quarry has crashed or is running extremly slowly once again. The latest queries are "running" though they don't. Whom or where should one ask for a resetting Quarry and killing dead queries? The oldest query I know of is still "running" for half a year. See also 2016 Community Wishlist Survey/Categories/Bots and gadgets#Quarry maintenance. --Achim (talk) 20:02, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

You could try asking at #wikimedia-labsconnect or file a new Phabricator task tagged with quarry. --Glaisher (talk) 15:52, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Just FYI, Pretty much the only one that can do anything if Quarry goes down that I know of is Yuvipanda. Reguyla (talk) 02:15, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Request for MassMessage Sender role[edit]

Hi, I would like to get access to the MassMessage Sender role. I am in the Technical Collaboration team at the Wikimedia Foundation. I need this urgently in order to be able to promote the Developer wishlist survey to the Technical Village Pump. Thanks -- SSethi (WMF) 6:08 PM, January 20th, 2017 (PST)

Done. Matiia (talk) 02:16, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Please ban the offensive vandal Wengier Wikingier[edit]

He was vandalising and cursing on ES. L3X1 (talk) 02:31, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

That account is already locked. You can see the status of an account on its contributions page. Also, please don't call vandalism-only accounts "punk hat"s or anything like that - seeing wiki people getting worked up over vandalism is half the reason why these people do it. See w:WP:DENY for more info. – Ajraddatz (talk) 02:34, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Request for Site/CentralNotice adminship[edit]

Hi, I would like to gain admin rights to the Site/ CentralNotice banners and campaigns. I am in the Technical Collaboration team at the Wikimedia Foundation. I need this to promote the Developer wishlist survey. Thanks -- SSethi (WMF) 7:32 PM, January 20th, 2017 (PST)

it.wikiversity on template[edit]

Serves an admin here --Samuele2002 (talk) 08:01, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

I've created phab:T155952. Matiia (talk) 19:52, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks very much --Samuele2002 (talk) 22:07, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

Archive a request for comments[edit]

Please archive Requests for comment/Swedish Wikipedia blocking policy violation and Administrator abuse. See Talk:Requests for comment/Swedish Wikipedia blocking policy violation and Administrator abuse. Yger (talk) 10:15, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

Requests for comment/Checkuser abuse on the Spanish Wikipedia[edit]

Hi all, I'd like to share the RFC with you. To sum up, a CU at the Spanish Wikipedia has carried out (again) a rogue verification, claiming that I've been evading my block by using the Atón account. I'd like to ask, again, for a CU verification by an involved CU (considering the wikis I'm active in). Any help from your side? --Discasto (talk) 18:25, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

This is quite out of scope for an RfC. You say you've already asked the Ombudsmen in the past, but they are the appropriate group for raising concerns with use of the CU tool. – Ajraddatz (talk) 03:31, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
