Page protection

Do we have an rfpp around here? If not, I'll just post my requests here.

This would be it, actually. {{autotranslate}} protected, letting others review the other two first. Kylu 23:29, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
I don't think protection is needed for the last two pages: they've never been created before and anyway there's no content to protect. --Nemo 05:28, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Mini-backlog at Talk:Toolserver/watcher

As Meta:Babel#Mini-backlog_at_Talk:Toolserver.2Fwatcher seems to be widely unnoticed/ignored I repost the request to take care of the mini-backlog and to add the page to the watchlist. Thanks! --Isderion 20:31, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I have this on my watchlist; the problem is that there are not clear criteria to follow. Anyway, please be patient: your request wasn't even one week old, but I made an exception. --Nemo 06:17, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your effort. Despite the diff that suggests otherwise, you have not added User:08-15 and me. I also wasn't aware that there is a minimum waiting period. As I have nearly 10k global edits and no blocks I thought it would be a rather no-thrill decision. However, the reason I ask for help here is that I have seen requests there, that have been older than a month. --Isderion 10:17, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Ehm, sorry (I had even checked the diff...). :"( One week is the usual minimum period for pretty much every request for access, AFAIK. A month is too much, I agree, but if there are no comments the sysop who is unsure after a day will be unsure also after a month (thanks for your comment). --Nemo 20:05, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Two user pages for deletion

These two pages

need to be deleted as they are useless. Thanks. -- Quentinv57 14:18, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

You mean just redirects, right? --WizardOfOz talk 14:23, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done User renamed, new page exist. --WizardOfOz talk 14:27, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Duh. Frozen Windwant to be chilly? 14:28, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I mean (user has been renamed, so the page is now useless).
Can you please delete User:Zakgreant too ? It's a user page of a non-existing user. Please also change content of User:JnRouvignac/EditCounterGlobalOptIn.js as it appears on the broken redirects list. Thanks by advance -- Quentinv57 14:32, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Both of them Yes check.svg Done --WizardOfOz talk 14:36, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
I've already checked links to these three pages. I promise I'll stop disturbing you today after this ;) -- Quentinv57 14:40, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
Deleted, give your GS back and take meta sysop instead :)--WizardOfOz talk 15:10, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Request for protections

Please protect the following templates :

They should be edited by sysops only if possible (as linked in thousands of pages). Thanks -- Quentinv57 15:48, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

    • Yes check.svg Done as "Highly transcluded, no need for frequent updates". If frequent updates are necessary (like various infoboxes on EnWiki), protection should be dropped to semi so as not to disenfranchise our main userbase of anonymous editors. -- Avi 16:02, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Requests for comment/User:Ottava Rima

Hi, I have opened the above RFC. Comments would be appreciated. Thanks. FT2 (Talk | email) 18:35, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Unfair Block

The following discussion is closed.

I was unfairly blocked on Wikipedia without explanation. I would like some help in combatting this block so I can have a fair chance. Return of the 2006 Sensation 07:26, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

This is not the right place to ask help. Please follow processes. --Nemo 07:38, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Ignored Request

Yes check.svg Resolved.

Why has my request at Talk:Toolserver/watcher been ignored? Another user placed a request five days after I did and they've been served before me. Can an admin add me to Toolserver/watcher? Thanks. Set Sail For The Seven Seas 210° 54' 59" NET 14:03, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Done. --dferg ☎ talk 15:12, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks dferg! :) Set Sail For The Seven Seas 198° 41' 30" NET 13:14, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Deletion of javascript user settings

Please delete User:Pepper/monobook.css and User:Pepper (usurped)/monobook.css (bureaucrat surely forgot it when renaming the user). Thanks by advance -- Quentinv57 07:46, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Done. Jafeluv 12:54, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
