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.

of the fair use discussion here. I'm involved, so I can't do it. —MarcoAurelio 13:43, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I'll continue posting here until you fellow do your job instead of lazying or cowardly evading this legit request. The community's spoken, the policies spoken. What is delaying this? I'm dissapointed, as it's not even the first time this happens here. —MarcoAurelio 17:05, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
I guess that no one really cares to do something about it. -Barras talk 17:53, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

I will have a look at it. Romaine (talk) 15:04, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
@Giselle Bordoy WMAR: Why in these countries? And the subject is advocacy, a subject that requires involvement of WMF. Have you spoken with WMF about this? We organised in Europa a information campaign early July this year and we spoke with Stephen LaPorte about this. Romaine (talk) 15:11, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi Giselle Bordoy WMAR, is there a consensus decision to run the banner on Spanish Wikipedia for users in Argentina? I'd also recommend sending an email to the [ public policy mailing list] with more information about the issue. Thank you, Stephen LaPorte (WMF) (talk) 17:07, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Romaine and Stephen LaPortefor the support and the recommendations. WMAR is concern about this law and translate this subject to the Comcom list. I will send this matther to public policy list but we need to upload the banner at least in Argentina.

Thanks again. --Giselle Bordoy WMAR (talk) 14:55, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

@Giselle Bordoy WMAR: I see no opposition coming from Stephen, so I implemented the CentralNotice now. Romaine (talk) 17:58, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks a lot Romaine --Giselle Bordoy WMAR (talk) 18:32, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Code fail[edit]

The headline of Meta:Administrators/Removal/October 2015 doesn't display correctly when included on Meta:Administrators/Removal, it shows "October 2014" as the previous, and "October 2015" as the next removal. It would be great if someone can fix it. --MF-W 15:35, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
