Meta-Wiki has a small active community. When a normal user requires the assistance of an administrator or bureaucrat for some particular task, it is not always easy to find one. This page helps users find one when they need one; asking specific admins directly via their talk pages is one way to elicit a fast response. It is only for assistance required at Meta-Wiki, help for other wikis needs to be requested at those wikis.

Request for temporal translatewiki adminship[edit]

Hello- Following up to my last request, may I make the following request given the urgency around translation? We are announcing the launch the AfroCreatives WikiProject +film campaign on Monday and expect a great deal of traffic to Meta in 3 languages. This is all coming together rather quickly with ongoing translation taking place. My question: while I appreciate the reasons for not granting me admin status, would it be possible to extend it to me in on a short-term basis? Specifically, until the 16th of July when the campaign launches. Otherwise, we must repeatedly impose on translate wiki admins while also being faced with delays that we are keen to avoid in this final stretch. Danidamiobi (talk) 14:00, 6 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, to be clear, are you asking for translation adminship or adminship on translatewiki? ~~~~

Hi @1234qwer1234qwer4, I am asking for translation adminship on translatewiki. Thank you. Danidamiobi (talk) 14:54, 6 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
If I understand you correctly, you want to be able to mark the project page for translation, because you're expecting lot's of changes until the campaign is starting? Then you would need translation adminship on Meta, not not translatewiki? -- Johannnes89 (talk) 15:20, 6 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you so much for your kind response @Johannnes89. Exactly, I need to mark the project page and it's subpages for translation, because of the last minute changes and additions that are taking place.
Thank you for clarifying on the right adminship I actually needed. I need translation adminship on Meta. Danidamiobi (talk) 15:41, 6 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I don't understand why you need it. Translatewiki translation adminship is a niche right needed only to mark project coordination pages on the domain translatewiki.net. This does not seem to be what you are looking for. ~~~~

@1234qwer1234qwer4 that's true. @Johannnes89 just clarified that what I need is translation adminship on Meta. Danidamiobi (talk) 15:43, 6 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks so much for your speedy response of earlier today @1234qwer1234qwer4, @Johannnes89. Is there any chance you're able to provide me with a response this evening so that, regardless of the response, we can plan accordingly? Thanks again for your assistance. Much appreciated!

X mark.svg Not done The regular process should be followed. Even then, I would see no need for the right. You don't even know which right exactly you are seeking. But translation admins have already been very supportive for your project in marking pages for translation. Also it's not fair to ask translators to waste their time trying to follow all of the supposed "last minute changes and additions". Get the pages ready first, then get them marked for translation. --MF-W 22:08, 6 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Autopatrol[edit]

Hello, could I be given the autopatrol right please? I am a sysop on enwiki (and have been for many years) and deleted an attack userpage on enwiki today, only to notice that this caused the meta version of the page to appear, which was also an attack page. It would be nice if I could blank+deletion nominate such pages directly on meta, but the abuse filter prevents me from fixing this problem myself. Thank you for your consideration!
