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.

Hello, this complain IMO shouldn't be on global userpage, without objections, I will move to user - subpage. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 18:17, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Or maybe just add __NOGLOBAL__? That'll disable the global user page (until he/she removes the magic word). —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:28, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Hello, I moved the text to my talk page. It is just a draft and will be removed soon. Is this okay now? sen (talk) 21:15, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Fair. True too. I am just wanting some consensus before doing anything, to prevent something like User:Ruhubelent happen again. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 18:35, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
For the record, I Support Support deleting (or restricting visibility) of this user page. An user page traditionally serves to introduce oneself as a wikimedian, not as a place for complaints.
I also think this is getting close to a block, given their only contribution is sending complaints everywhere, see a comment by Ladsgroup at my talk page. Martin Urbanec (talk) 18:46, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Yup, sock puppetry, causing continuous issues in fawiki. I support deleting the page or blocking the user. Amir (talk) 19:21, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Neutral for block. Support for delete the userpage--𝐖𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐁𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 👤💬 19:31, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
I am stuck in a bad situation and need help. I am Not a puppetry and I did everything I could to prove this. I thought that check users are reasonable and polite people. I did not do anything wrong and I am here to see justice. However the check users do not need to prove their claim. I had a meeting on skype  with two of the fa.wikipedia stewards. They showed me the way of going out of this situation by complaining in Meta. We think a strange problem has happened in usercheck and we have only asked for recheck. @Amin(امین): @Rskhshe sefid: @Huji: @Ajraddatz: sen (talk) 21:53, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Please be informed that something strange is happening on fawiki. Four accounts have been blocked due to sock puppetry while there are good reasons to believe they belong to different people. At least one admin has tried to help them and he is being de-sysoped. Two other accounts who have spoken against the blocks have been blocked themselves. Blocking at this moment is a poor decision. This may need to be discussed at Wikimedia Forum or an RFC. Fawiki is on the verge of becoming another azwiki. 4nn1l2 (talk) 06:43, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
    Comment Comment Heeding user:4nn1l2's warning of events in faWP, I think that this should be allowed to develop on a subpage in the user's ns; it is not our job to stop reasonable complaints and investigations. The requirement for all compilation of evidence is civility. If there are problems at faWP there are enough trusted users through that space for Stewards to get an understanding of what is happening through informal means.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:09, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Marking this section as resolved. It has not been edited in 8 days and the userpage is now blank, making it sort of moot. However, I went ahead and deleted the userpage as it was blanked in good faith by, which I took as G6. In the event that you want it back somewhere as a subpage and have not already done so,, please ping me (or drop a message on my talk) and provide a location where you would like it moved to. --TheSandDoctor Talk 03:27, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Request for comment/Global ban for Kubura[edit]

Per the global ban policy, we technically need to inform literally every wiki Kubura and his alternate accounts has ever edited.. right? If that is the case, can I just request a MassMessage sender do it? –MJLTalk 22:50, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

Give me the list of the community noticeboards to send it, and I'll send it for you. — regards, Revi 22:52, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
@-revi: Not sure how to notify koiwiki, bewiki, mgwiktionary, kywiktionary, lbwiktionary, lowiktionary, chrwiktionary, uzwiktionary, bewiktionary, iowiktionary, or tgwiktionary.
MJLTalk 05:42, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
I tried moving the list to Requests_for_comment/Global_ban_for_Kubura/wikis, but it doesn't seem to like me. –MJLTalk 19:48, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
I know @Blablubbs did send some ban notifications, so please be careful about possible duplicates. Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:15, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: I notified most wikis that Kubura has had a significant level of activity on; the full list of notifications is in the RfC. Best, Blablubbs (talk) 22:54, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
We don't want to send duplicated messages, so can you remove the wikis where you already sent the message? Also please provide us the "subject" and "body" of the message as well. Thanks. — regards, Revi 10:57, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
And if there's no Village Pump or Admin's Noticeboard, Community portal or talk page of main page might work too. — regards, Revi 11:00, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
@-revi: On it. MJL and I will ping once we're done. The message I used for noticeboards was:
== Global ban proposal for Kubura ==
Hello. This is to notify the community that there is an ongoing global ban proposal for [[Special:Contributions/Kubura|Kubura]] who has been active on this wiki. You are invited to participate at [[m:Request for comment/Global ban for Kubura]]. Thank you. ~~~~
Best, Blablubbs (talk) 11:13, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
@Blablubbs: Probably best to not link Kubura's name like that in order to avoid the ping. We could replace it with [[Special:Contributions/Kubura|Kubura]] to make it more clear who this user is to them.
@-revi: This list does not include anywhere that has previously been notified. –MJLTalk 15:46, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
@MJL: Thanks, I've made the change above. Blablubbs (talk) 16:05, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
