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.

Edit request due to filter issue while translating Office actions/September 2021 statement[edit]

The abuse filter #92 has been triggered as I attempt to submit translation strings for such page in Korean. I assume that putting a username consisted of Chinese characters—which has been mentioned on the original page—in the translation caused the issue.

I'd like to request a bypass edit as following, In both Translations:Office actions/September 2021 statement/17/ko and Translations:Office actions/September 2021 statement/19/ko: Replacing @@ to 玄客. -- 08:08, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]

    Yes check.svg Done I hope I had added them in correct locations, me being a ko-0 but the changes seems reasonable enough. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:07, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Please remove CNA from Tonina Zhelyazkova (WMDE)[edit]

@MF-Warburg @MarcoAurelio Hello, could you please remove CNA from Tonina Zhelyazkova (WMDE)? They're no longer a WMDE employee (I just locked the account). Thanks! Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:04, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Done. --MF-W 11:48, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Just an note: On Babel there are discussions of CNA inactivity removals, just for more publicity and is sort of linked to this topic. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:08, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]
