Requests and proposals Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat (at Meta-Wiki only) Archives (current)→
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.

Interface admin for Minorax[edit]

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)
@Minorax: Ooops, sorry forgot we changed that since it is pretty much shall-issue! A 'crat will come along and deal with this. — xaosflux Talk 19:01, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Remove patroller for Marshmallych[edit]

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)
