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.

User:KhanhCN Defender1st Minh[edit]

Can someone delete this please? 92.40.168.99 15:39, 14 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It's my user page! Why delete dude :( KhanhCN Defender1st Minh (talk) 15:40, 14 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Sysop pls don't! It's my user page! KhanhCN Defender1st Minh (talk) 15:41, 14 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I will never upload pornography there! I swear! Sysop pls don't delete it! It's just a stupid nsfw warning! KhanhCN Defender1st Minh (talk)
Yes check.svg Done - I think sysop has refused! KhanhCN Defender1st Minh (talk) 07:56, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I need a bit more of context here. The quoted text on the talk page seems silly according to an online translator, but I'd prefer if NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh could weigh in if possible. In addition, I note the user is blocked on vi.wikipedia for (according to the same translator), playing with the system. If the user is repeating the same behaviour that led to his viwiki block over here as well that'd be problematic. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:15, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@MarcoAurelio: It is indeed a silly joke. Note that we don't have CIR on viwiki; if we had the reason would have been incompetence rather than gaming the system. I considered myself involved so I'm not going to comment on their behaviour here. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 10:31, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@MarcoAurelio: what talk page? — KhanhCN Defender1st Minh (talk) 09:26, 17 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Nobody's talking about talk pages I think. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:28, 17 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request for Meta IPBE permission renewal[edit]

Last year, due to my inability to edit Meta Wikimedia pages through proxy services despite having Global IPBE exemption, I was granted 1 year of local IPBE exemption, but the 1 year exemption have expired and now I face the same problem again, hence I hereby request a renewal to my local IPBE exemption on meta.

I am asking here because I noticed Meta:Requests_and_proposals#For_Meta do not have another more appropriate page for applying for local IPBE permission. C933103 (talk) 08:34, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Disruptive edit by Ruwaym[edit]

Hello. User:Ruwaym is blocked on fawiki and clearly has issues with that. But that doesn't allow him to generalize his problem and personal viewpoint to the entire project, and certainly does not justify making an edit like Special:Diff/23443152. I undid the edit but they undid it in Special:Diff/23449774. I don't think another round of undo is the right approach here, therefore I ask a Meta administrator to intervene. Huji (talk) 01:15, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • User warned, editing canceled. If it continued, there will be a block. --Mykola talk 01:33, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    @Mykola7 block, block, block. It is a word that has been used for about twenty years in every project to solve any problem. @Huji I just asked you for a rational reason to undo my edit, but negative worldview is something else. Ruwaym (talk) 13:40, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Please could you take the appropriate action Gbawden (talk) 14:38, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
