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.

Cannot answer to comments on a GIPBE request: answer considered as vandalism (local)[edit]

Hello, there. I asked for GIPBE, but made a mistake in my request which has been misinterpreted; I tried to answer to correct it, but am unable to do so: I'm getting the message Error: This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Antivandalism (local). Could someone unblock me to allow me to answer to User:-revi and solve the misunderstanding? Regards. —Moinats (talk) 14:32, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

Moinats, I've tweaked the filter, please try again. Sorry that this has happened. --Base (talk) 16:27, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
@Base: it worked, thank you very much. —Moinats (talk) 08:40, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
@Moinats: Can I recommend that you confirm your email address. The filter report identifies that it hasn't been done, and for us that is a good test of good editors.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:43, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I did not give my email address because I don't want to link my Wikimedia account to my email address. Should it be proved necessary, I'll give one, but I prefer not to. —Moinats (talk) 08:40, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
