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.

Request for patroller permission[edit]

Since it's becoming clear that I have to deal with vandalism here from time to time, I would like to request the patroller permission so I can revert edits quickly. Thanks in advance. -★- PlyrStar93. Message me. 01:50, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Request for closure[edit]

Would a sysop or bureaucrat assess the consensus at Requests_for_comment/Interlinking_of_accounts_involved_with_paid_editing_to_decrease_impersonation? The RFC has been open for almost 3 months. The closure was previously requested in October. Rentier (talk) 15:13, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

This RfC is cross-wiki, rather than Meta-specific. So probably any request for closure should go to the stewards (SRM). StevenJ81 (talk) 17:16, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I posted the request at SRM. Rentier (talk) 00:12, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Hide a personal inf.[edit]

@علاء: Matiia have been done for you. SA 13 Bro (talk) 19:11, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
@علاء: It is better to email a steward rather than post it on a public page... btw. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 22:56, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
@Atcovi: Matiia is also a steward, he properly know how to handle the public page issue. SA 13 Bro (talk) 23:04, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

Automated archive[edit]

Is there a reason why my talk page doesn't automatically archive, what settings would I have to apply to make this happen? --Donald Trung (Talk 🤳🏻) (My global lock 🔒) (My global unlock 🔓) 13:52, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

@Donald Trung: On Meta-Wiki, most of the editors are usually self archive their talk page, I think you can request the bot archive from Steinsplitter. SA 13 Bro (talk) 01:22, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
