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.

Request renaming or speedily closing a request for comment intended for defamation[edit]

Would any disinterested administrator speedily close or rename this RfC? This is an extremely serious personal attack in violation of Meta:Civility.--Jusjih (talk) 19:28, 11 September 2021 (UTC)

Jusjih: Alleging abuse of administrative rights while providing links and making a case is not in and of itself a personal attack. It is also pertinent to note that threatening editors for opening an RfC about you is not appropriate conduct for a Meta-Wiki administrator. Please try to remain calm and objective while processes like these are going on. Best, Vermont (talk) 20:48, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
Vermont's comments are true, though I doubt that it should be at Metawiki, this is a local issue for zhWS and has no global implications, and is between administrators. Having this discussed in English here is just problematic. I have asked for it to be moved back to zhWS, then we should be able to close it out.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:19, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
Then please also ask Zhxy 519 to try to remain calm and objective, or he should be blocked here for disruption. Please note how Zhxy 519 retaliated while he would face de-admimship [1] and why the RfC has excessively biased title [2]. See also a new RFC to tighten Requests for comment/Policy.--Jusjih (talk) 19:43, 12 September 2021 (UTC)
@Jusjih regarding the first diff, Zhxy 519 does make a valid point, and for the second diff also there was no good reason to move the RfC. Given there may be language barriers, please AGF. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 23:21, 13 September 2021 (UTC)
Will not close here as it might not be good for me to close zh related issues, but to be honest, I don't see anything actionable here. I really can't see any clear policy violations on any party that is to that extent that sanctions are applicable till now. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:15, 16 September 2021 (UTC)

Module talk:Userbox & Module talk:WikidataIB edit protected requests[edit]

Hello. Could someone familiar with templates, Lua and TemplateStyles, or that feels comfortable working with them, please take a look at the edit protected requests at Module talk:Userbox and Module talk:WikidataIB? Thanks! —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:16, 13 September 2021 (UTC)

User:NR deblocked[edit]

User was inserting >100 apparently machine CNBanner translations; I've blocked them for three days for now, but this is clearly a sock, even according to their own userpage (and I'm pretty sure I've seen the image they had posted onto their user talk page already). Does anyone know of whom? ~~~~

Thanks for noting this here; I blocked the account on Incubator as well where he did much of the same stuff (inserting machine translations in multiple languages). This guy is a regular on RNL pages and on Incubator, but I forgot what the original name was or how we call him, if any. It might have started with Special:CentralAuth/ArticleEditor404 or maybe even Special:CentralAuth/CasetteTapeMaster. --21:01, 13 September 2021 (UTC) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MF-Warburg (talk)
As far as I can see NR deblocked is a sockpuppet of Novarussia. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:16, 13 September 2021 (UTC)
Seems right, the IP 46.32.68.132 is also involved. --MF-W 21:20, 13 September 2021 (UTC)
Suggest indef as block evasion. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:41, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
Done. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:18, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

Autopatrolled for Tanbirzx[edit]

Hello, i ask this permission to save patroller's time. Because this is a big site of Wikimedia. I usually create translation here. If you have any doubt then please check my contributions. I have rollback right on wikidata. Thanks↠Tanbirzx () 17:02, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

@Tanbirzx I have reviewed your Bengali translations, in some cases they seem to be machine translated. Be careful about these --MdsShakil (talk) 05:32, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done. Per MdsShakil assessment, it seem that you are using machine translations. Please stop doing so as they may be of low quality. Hence, I would not be comfortable for your edits to not undergo patrolling. Regards, Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:02, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
