Remove patroller for Marshmallych

Last weekend, I manually checked the patroller logs and edits of all Meta patrollers. I found one inactive patroller: Marshmallych is a patroller from 14 April 2018. His/her last edit Special:Diff/19080977 and last public log [1] is on 7 May 2019. Last patrol log [2] on 30 August 2018. According to Meta:Patrollers, the rights of patrollers should remove who have no edit or no log in the last 2 years. But in user right logs, I couldn't see that the inactive patrols were removed according to inactivity. I'm waiting to see the opinions of other admins on this subject. Regards. --Uncitoyentalk 14:38, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done - though I normally wouldn't bother cleaning that up, but since you asked and since this user has tagged themselves as retired seems fine - if they come back they can stop back here and ask to resume. — xaosflux Talk 14:46, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Interface admin for Minorax

Hello. I'd like to request for IA rights to edit pages such as MediaWiki:HideButtonsFromNonGsProjects.js & MediaWiki:Gadget-markAdmins-data.js. As a GS, I already have 2FA enabled. --Minoraxtalk 23:34, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

@Minorax: the request page for this is over here: Meta:Requests_for_adminship#Requests_for_interface_adminship; optionally you can just drop edit requests on those, they get processed quickly. — xaosflux Talk 14:44, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: As per Meta:Interface_administrators#Requesting_interface_adminship, an admin can request for IA here. --Minoraxtalk 14:46, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

MassMessage rights request

I am the Secretary of the Affiliations Committee and we are preparing for the first of our new member elections of 2021. We need to post announcements to all Affiliates about this election and invite interested parties to consider serving on AffCom. There are other needs that arise for communicating across all Affiliates, and we need the internal capacity to send Mass Messages to Affiliate discussion pages do this. Can I please be granted these rights? Thank you. FULBERT (talk) 14:00, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Granted to expire on 1 January 2023 as your term ends on that date. -- CptViraj (talk) 14:13, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
CptViraj Thank you. --- FULBERT (talk) 00:28, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
I had also reinstated autopatrol for them, hope @CptViraj is okay with it. It seemed that they are a competent user which doesn't need patrolling, so I see that even when the MMS is expired, they can still be autopatrolled. Feel free to reverse if you see something else I don't see now, apologies in advance. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:46, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
I did remove it because MMS is set to expire after 1.5 years, it's a long time, so I thought instead of keeping redundant right for that long, we can just simply re-grant it after the MMS expires. But it's fine, there is no harm, we remove redundant rights just for clear stats, no big deal. -- CptViraj (talk) 16:30, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

Opting out a specific IP address from ntsamr

See wikivoyage:Wikivoyage:Travellers'_pub#Global_"ntsamr"-pattern_spambot_filter. The TLDR is that a contributive IP user (>1000 edits) is being hit by the filter and is asking what can be done against it. Would it be possible to add a specific exemption for this IP address? Thanks in advance. Leaderboard (talk) 07:53, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

For one FP, I don't think that it is truly necessary.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:33, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Seems from the comment that's not just an isolated case. Leaderboard (talk) 08:48, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
That IP address has hit global filters and been prevented from editing at enWikivoyage the once, though they hit that one five times in a few minutes. And of course I checked prior to answering. They have hit other filters locally at that wiki, and have been tagged on a GF that watches for an LTA.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:53, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

Patroller rights request

I'd like to request patroller user rights to use rollback feature, I'm doing anti-vandalism work here and several other wikis (also SWMT). Usually I use SWViewer or Twinkle, but rollback will be more helpful. Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 06:40, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. -- CptViraj (talk) 06:44, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
For clarification, I'm aware of ZI Jony's previous requests for patroller. I believe he's trustworthy enough and has helped reverting vandalism several times recently, patroller would be helpful to him. Feel free to remove if used inappropriately. -- CptViraj (talk) 06:51, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
