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.

History merge for my user page and user talk page.[edit]

Can I have the original (now deleted) versions of my user page and user talk page history merged? Not to delete the current version but simply to have the old histoirs merged so at least I would be the original creator. --Donald Trung (Talk 🤳🏻) (My global lock 😒🌏🔒) (My global unlock 😄🌏🔓) 10:54, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Okay. Done by Base & me. Matiia (talk) 00:38, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Request for MassMessage to be sent[edit]

Could someone please notify all the village pumps (list at Distribution list/Global message delivery) about the discussion at Requests for comment/Improvement of global ban policy? --Rschen7754 01:51, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

@Rschen7754: Might be worthwhile crafting a message on the RFC's talk page that we can use, or as a subpage to the discussion so it sits as a record.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:41, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
I think it can be pretty simple, such as: "Some changes to the community global ban policy have been proposed. Your comments are welcome at m:Requests for comment/Improvement of global ban policy." --Rschen7754 03:12, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
Could someone please send this message? --Rschen7754 20:25, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
Done. Matiia (talk) 00:35, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Requesting close of an RfC[edit]

This is just a request for an admin to close Requests for comment/Interlinking of accounts involved with paid editing to decrease impersonation which has been open since September 20, 2017. It has been widely advertised and it looks like everybody who is interested has put in their !vote and comments. Smallbones (talk) 20:51, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Second the closure request.It ought not to be a massive expenditure of time or other resources.Godric on Leave (talk) 04:16, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Request for translation admin[edit]

I would like to translate Wikimedia Ghana User Group and its subpages into German. I already asked the Social Media Manager of the User Group (User:Owula kpakpo) for permission, which he granted. I don't manage to install the extension for marking pages for translation on my systems, that's why I am asking here. Thank you very much in advance. --Gereon K. (talk) 18:40, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the request and we hope this would go in a long way in helping our User group. Thanks again. Gereon K. --Owula kpakpo (talk) 15:50, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
