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.

Requesting MassMessage sender rights[edit]

Hello! I would like to request MassMessage sender rights in order to send out Wikimedia Norge's newsletters on user talk pages. We have previously been sending them out via email, but we figure they will get higher visibility if we also post them on user talk pages for users who register for it. Jon Harald Søby (WMNO) (talk) 12:32, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

@Jon Harald Søby (WMNO): The Newsletters are on a opt-in basis? --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:15, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter: Yes, of course. :-) Jon Harald Søby (WMNO) (talk) 15:38, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Verdy_p edit wars, again[edit]

Please advise verdy_p to continue the discussion before continuing to restore an incorrect bot edit of two weeks ago, caused by some edits of his. Note that I've only fixed one page until today because I fear verdy_p would otherwise start edit warring on dozens or hundreds of pages, but I'm ready to make things consistent again once the risk is eliminated. --Nemo 11:21, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
