Blocked account dee.arcilla

Good day!

My account has been blocked! I cant access the programs dashboard. I am currently facilitating the Art & Feminism in the Philippines. I need to view the statistics of the campaign and also to add new facilitators. Thank you.

Seems to be related to Could you share the error message with us? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 08:23, 27 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Excessive trolling/vandalism on the associated project page

In recent weeks I've seen excessive trolling and vandalism to the associated project page. I want this to STOP though. However, how can this thing stop? Feel free to make your comments down below and I'll appreciate it! 23:12, 26 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Users responding

I think it is time to make policy where before section is resolved, unless it clearly doesn’t involve admin action, for an admin or appropriate user group to respond. Resolving allows it to stay 24 hours, and at the next 03:08(UTC)(or 11:08pm where I am)to be archived. Otherwise it’s 10 days. Shorter section should be resolved, not longer, but still, I think it’s time that we let it stay open until admin responds. 12:07, 26 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I want access to create page User:GirattoBot

Hi! I tried to create my bots page but it says an error message when pressing publish. It wasn't a test. I need urgent help. Can someone help out with this please? --Giratto (talk) 23:40, 2 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Giratto, editors not marked as autopatrolled aren't able to edit other users' userpages. You can log in manually as GirattoBot and create the page as the bot. GeneralNotability (talk) 23:49, 2 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, please make sure to read the Bot policy before doing anything with a bot. GeneralNotability (talk) 03:16, 3 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Protected edit request on 23 October 2020

For Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat/Header

** [[CentralNotice/Request|Requests for CentralNotice banners and campaigns]]}}
** [[Stewards' noticeboard|Requests discussing issues on Wikimedia projects that are related to steward work]]}}

I mix these two boards up too often. I suspect I am not alone.

But the stewards' noticeboard is already mentioned in the header. --MF-W 08:29, 23 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Per MF-W, we don't really put 2 links on one page to the same page, although we can modify the text of the existing link. @MJL:Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 18:47, 25 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Camouflaged Mirage and MF-Warburg: I'd replace the current "See also" link to Wikimedia Foundation Board noticeboard. As it stands now, the link to SN is pretty much an afterthought and not particularly visible. This gives more context to the link in my opinion. –MJLTalk 04:59, 26 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I didn't see too many mistaken posts to be honest, if there are we are fine with redirecting properly. I don't particularly inclined to change anything at this moment. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:17, 26 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
X mark.svg Not done per above, feel free to continue discussing and reactivate the edit request if a consensus for the change emerges. — xaosflux Talk 13:40, 30 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
