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.

Template:=[edit]

Please unprotect this page as {{=}} has been implemented as a native magic word (T91154). NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 07:19, 18 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh what links here, and "templates used on this page" is still reporting many many calls to this page. — xaosflux Talk 18:48, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Xaosflux: More than 4000 pages, yes. They simply needs to be null-edited, which I did. There are ~1800 left, most are translations that can only be updated via the Translate extension. Basically, they are using the magic word; even if you delete {{=}} now, it is very unlikely that anything will happen. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 21:20, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request for MassMessage sender rights[edit]

Hello! I'm the coordinator of Decolonizing Wikimedia program at Whose Knowledge?. I'd like to reaching out to members of our User Group. In that role I wish to send global mass messages to members, and I'd like to have the MassMessage sender rights. I've created a distribution list with our members, and you can see here an example of the type of messages I'd like to send. Our plan is to send news and invitations in a regular basis, but we don't want to burden the Talk pages of our community members. Thanks! Mariana Fossatti (WK?)

Revdel/oversight request[edit]

I would like that one of my own edits (done automatically, not done intentionally), have both content and edit summary removed. I would also like said user to be globally suppressed. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 22:40, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

First, oversight request should not be posted at here. Personally I thought it's not necessary to take actions (even revdel) on the edit you mentioned. Stang 22:57, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Stang: What about the user’s global edits? Also, are you the user who added rollback on Wikiquote? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 23:00, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • No need to revdelete it. After it, there are already many edits, and it is already archived Suppression of the account is already done by stewards. --Mykola talk 00:31, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
