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.

Help: Global blockade[edit]

Hello, mi global account is locked for no reason. I can't edit in any of the projects. I have received a message that says:

”The blocking is done for Stanglavine. The reason is 'no open proxies/Webhosts'”

I can't to use my PC for editing, but can to use others devices. My IP is 45.128.39.46, and the range of IPs blocking is 45.128.39.0/24. My user in all projects is User:Goldorak. Help me, please.

Thanks, Goldorak (talk) 15:44, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

PD: I have communicated this for email to stewards mail, and a bot sent me the reference number #2022063010012922. --Goldorak (talk) 15:46, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Goldorak: Your account is not blocked. Rather, the IP you mention is in a range used, most likely by a VPN service. Could you please try to turn it off and see if you can edit again? —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:47, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hello. If I turn off the router and turn it back on, I can edit, but the lockup returns after a few minutes. I can only edit from my tablet. Goldorak (talk) 16:03, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Goldorak: A veces, algunos antivirus u otros programas vienen con VPNs incorporadas que "saltan" cada vez que te conectas a Internet y enrutan, sin que tu lo sepas/quieras todo tu tráfico de Internet a través de ellos. ¿Desde hace cuánto notas este bloqueo? ¿Has actualizado o instalado algún programa nuevo desde entonces? —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:11, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Muchas gracias, exactamente ese era el problema. Goldorak (talk) 16:13, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
So sorry. I just found the solution. My new VPN antivirus was blocking access. I have unplugged it and the problem is gone. Thank you very much for the help. Cheers Goldorak (talk) 16:12, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

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]
