CentralNotice/FAQ

Hi there,

Can someone with knowledge of translations insert language tags on this page for me, so translations of the page can be created?

Thank! Ciell (talk) 20:14, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Ciell Yes check.svg Done. For the future, Meta talk:Babylon might be the more appropriate venue. ~~~~

@NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh Please explain in details what you mean. And please stop the RRing on RFD, Hillbillyholiday Unfrozen too. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:42, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
In short, this user was indeffed on Commons after 2 edits and is now requesting for deletion of it (the project as a whole). Does that really look like a serious request? NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 12:46, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Valid point. Seems trolling as what you put but clearly not blatant vandalism which will allow you to go beyond the 3RR. Hope you get what I am meaning. Just report it per and leave it alone and let admins determine from now. Edit warring that content to and fro isn't productive. @NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:48, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
+ What we can do is to talk to that user, voice our concerns, per the bold, revert discuss cycle if you think there's merit in discussing. But if you think is vandalism, at least some warnings may be useful. Just my 2 cents. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:50, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay. Sorry for violating 3RR, I won't next time. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 12:51, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I mean not worth getting blocked over such issues, I will treat this as a note to you. I am also not familiar with the context of this user behaviour over at commons, so will defer to another sysop to determine. In the meantime, ignore them will be the best @NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:54, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]


  • We are not an SPA, thank you very much. This deletion request is totally serious, viz. events associated with that block, plus a whole host of insurmountable problems stretching back many years.
Beyond all hope. Suggest we delete the whole thing and start again. --Hillbillyholiday Unfrozen (talk) 12:28, 4 December 2021 (UTC) Secretary-General, Wikimedia Affiliates Association[reply]

Translating into specific language disallowed on certain pages

Greetings. When I try to start a new translation on certain pages such as this one, I've been encountered with a message that says This page cannot be translated to [language name here]; A translation administrator decided that this page can only be translated to [some other language names here].

I could find out that there was at least one case that such limitation has been set due to the tight timeframe for the objective of such page, but it seems that the one I am trying to start translating isn't that case. Can anyone mind explaining what I can do in order to make it available for translation in my language? --121.155.145.26 05:27, 2 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

That discussion would belong on the talk page of the relevant page, and you should invite the translation admin who made that decision to the conversation. You will see who marked it for translation on the page's history.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:35, 2 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Actually, you will rather see who marked the page for translation in the page’s logs (this appears in history only if a change has been included in the page as well). -- Pols12 (talk) 14:51, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Alright, wrote a message to the relevant translation admin and waiting for a response. No clue when he'll check his talk page since his last edit was some months ago, though. --121.155.145.26 04:13, 8 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Password recovery

Hello. I am a Bosogo.
Today I cleared my cookies and cache in browser. Thus logging out of the account. But the attempt to log back into the account with the password that I always used did not work. At the same time, I could not reset the password, since I did not specify it in the settings. But, my user page has an email that I have access to (bosogo00@gmail.com). Is it possible to restore access through it ? At the same time, an account in Translatewiki.net is linked to this email. I can confirm from there that it really is me. Or in another way.
Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.112.122.221 (talk) 13:52, 12 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Seems to be a thing with Special:AbuseFilter/161: it checks for the autopatrolled user right, not autoconfirmed (which is used on enwiki, for instance, for the user page editing filter). I'd assign Synoman Barris the autopatrolled flag; they are trusted and have advanced user rights on enwiki. JavaHurricane 04:22, 16 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

MassMessage sender rights extension

I currently send MassMessages as a part of my service to AffCom, and my rights are set to expire at the end of this year. Can they please be extended as I am continuing with my AffCom service? As our next election just started, I made use of this several times today. Thank you. --- FULBERT (talk) 15:14, 19 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hello @FULBERT, as far as I can see, your mass-message sender (MMS) rights are set to expire on January 01, 2023 (in other words, they will expire in about a year). While in principle I don't have an issue with you continuing have MMS rights, I don't think it's necessary to extend them today, unless I'm overseeing something obvious. If you still need MMS rights after January 01, 2023, feel free to re-request here, and we'll gladly consider making an extension. Best, Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:06, 19 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Guxiangli_Tongguan

I would like to report a strange-behavior user, Guxiangli Tongguan. It was created 2 months ago, and except requesting for GIPBE (no response to steward's question), all their edits on meta were adding {{s}} with no reason given at GR/GS request. Although GR/GS request is not vote, I still think this user's behavior is really abnormal, probably they is someone's puppet. Stang 14:31, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I agree with the user, such as something. Attaching Support Support (support) is my consent. Thank you and understand. Yes.--Guxiangli Tongguan (talk) 07:30, 1 January 2022 (UTC)Guxiangli Tongguan[reply]

I also read through global roll backs and sysops. I do research their contributions to see if they are worthy or not. If yes, then assign Support Support. If something is wrong, please correct me.--Guxiangli Tongguan (talk) 07:34, 1 January 2022 (UTC)Guxiangli Tongguan[reply]

Hard censor libel and doxing towards me on svwp

These edits on December 31 2021 at my user discussion page, made by an IP-adress from 03:03 until 03:40 local contains doxing of me, my mother, adress and libel, claiming me to be a r*pist and a bunch of other disgusting things. They have already been soft censored by svwp sysops but I would like a steward to hard censor them (so that even sysops can't see them) due to the extreme nature of the harassment. Please help me out here. EstrellaSuecia (talk) 14:44, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Martin Urbanec (talk · contribs)? You've helped me out before with issues like this. EstrellaSuecia (talk) 14:50, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@EstrellaSuecia: it is recommended to not post Oversight requests publicly. You could email the request to the stewards privately (or ping them on IRC). I have now informed the stews of the request on IRC. --Daniuu (talk) 14:52, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Daniuu: I'm sorry, I know that. I'm just desperate.   EstrellaSuecia (talk) 14:56, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done @EstrellaSuecia: Should be now hidden from public/admin view (viewable only by NDA'ed people). I second User:Daniuu's comment about not requesting oversight publicly. Noticeboards are generally watched by a lot of people, and requesting oversight action publicly makes a lot of people notice it, potentially invoking en:Streisand effect. FYI, this page is watchlisted by nearly a thousand of people. There's almost always a steward available in #wikimedia-stewards at IRC, and going there is the most effective way to request OS. Feel free to PM/email me directly if you have any questions about the procedure, or in case I missed any revisions. Best, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:17, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you Martin. It's a huge weight off my shoulders. I also redacted the rest of my sentence, since the last few words didn't make sense without context. Happy new years! EstrellaSuecia (talk) 15:21, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sock report

Other admins, please review Special:Diff/22510835 vs. Special:AbuseLog/1537545 - looks like a duck to me but not sure if there is a history that warrants a CU request, if it should just be sock block and master warned, or both blocked, or also locked (or lock requested) as advertising only. Haven't been around much recently, and I could be considered to have an w:WP:INVOLVED conflict, so would prefer someone else take a look --DannyS712 (talk) 10:37, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@DannyS712: I agree with the DUCK analysis by just looking at the edits from the abuse log. The accounts Layboardcom, Layboardsite, Vladimir Korotov and Denis Grachov are obviously related (again, no CU done). I'd block them all. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:28, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Report concerning User:Taylorbot

Taylorbot (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log • GUC • CA)Reasons: Both accounts involved eo:wikt:User:Taylorbot, eo:wikt:User:Taylor 49. The bot operation log, User Log - these two actions are interlinked. In the German section of the project, information on dialects has been destroyed. All articles where the template "Dialektaĵoj (germana)" was used are affected. The information has not been moved to another section of the article, not marked as a comment in order to exclude the display of information and to be able to process the information in the future. Local discussion started here . In the decision on the previous case was written on behalf of the administrator "I have asked for the bot operator to review that work", but none of the forged messages have been recovered so far. Va (🖋️) 10:27, 30 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

What exactly are you asking for here on meta? The account is not a bot here and their only edits are Special:Contributions/Taylorbot setting up their user pages and one talk page message. This seems like something for local admins --DannyS712 (talk) 10:25, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I ask rollback these edits and revoke bot access until to bot owner explanations.
Sorry, obviously I was wrong with the placement. I will move the request to Steward requests/Miscellaneous.
According to this decision you are administrators and no other or "local" administrators exist.
I added information about the discussion started locally to fulfill the norm that even if the project is administered by Meta, then a copy of the problem report should be announced locally.
Thanks, Va (🖋️) 15:09, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
