Non-free content on Ingush Wikipedia

Hello! I am an administrator at the Ingush Wikipedia. We created criteria for using non-free content on our wiki. Who can help us, what needs to be done next so that the ability to download and use non-free files is enabled in the Ingush Wikipedia (of course, subject to the criteria for fair use)? Thank you! Sincerely, Adam-Yourist (talk) 22:26, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

I would think that Legal needs to approve everything relating to using nonfree content, considering the legal copyright nature of it. You should contact them. Vermont (talk) 22:50, 3 December 2019 (UTC)
@Adam-Yourist: Additionally please look over Non-free content and its talk page. Technically, a phabricator ticket would be needed to add the 'upload' access to the group(s) that would be uploading files locally. Please note: while the technical change is minimal, the community responsibly is not. You are the only active administrator on inhwiki and would need to patrol every upload to ensure it is properly licensed - this can be a lot of work and is really too much for one person to manage for a public project in my opinion. — xaosflux Talk 14:40, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Apply to be a MassMessage sender

Hi admins,

I like to apply to be a Meta:MassMessage_senders because I want to create communication to our community contributors or Project WikiLoop Wikipedia:WikiLoop_Battlefield.

X mark.svg Not done I don't see a need for global MassMessage rights, as it appears it is restricted to the English Wikipedia and doesn't have nearly enough editors to necessitate granting MassMessage. Vermont (talk) 03:24, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
Note, you can get messages sent on enwiki by asking at w:en:WT:MMS. — xaosflux Talk 04:05, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

Central notice issues

Dear colleagues,

it seems to be some problem with central notice campaigs requests. We (Wikimedia RU) are currently organizing contest, and need a site notice for it. It was supposed that the campaign should start at December 1 (and would last until December 15). Now it's December 7, and only 8 days of the contest left, and there's still no banner of the contest.

What's wrong? Maybe we missed some procedure? We filled CentralNotice/Calendar and CentralNotice/Request entries a long ago. On the other hand, I see some banners run without any mentions on these pages. Maybe there's some other procedure that is more effective than using CentralNotice/Request? Maybe we should try IRC or Telegram channels? If yes, which ones?

Sorry for asking here, but I don't see where else to ask. I tried to address some individual sysops, but unfortunately got no responses yet - and the time now is a real issue.

I appreciate any help or advices! Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 17:21, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Please accept my apologizes for the delay. I've just started the campaign. Best regards, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 18:08, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
