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.

I need to upload a file[edit]

Hi, I have a new project proposal called Wikidiscussions and I need to upload the image of the icon - could you please help me with that? Random Wikimedian (talk) 19:06, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

@Random Wikimedian: is your image free? If so you should upload it to Wikimedia Commons, then you will be able to use it on pages here. — xaosflux Talk 16:36, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

‎Mass message sender rights[edit]

Hi, in my request of 25 January, I wrote that "I only foresee needing it [mass message sender rights] this month". This has proven to be somewhat short-sighted, as circumstances have since changed and I now anticipate being publisher or back-up publisher of The Signpost for the foreseeable future. I was able to publish The Signpost without any issues in February and would like to request the mass message sender right on a permanent basis. If you read my prior request there is precedent for this right for this purpose, and should circumstances change--as they seem to do often--and I no longer need the right, I intend to request that the right be removed.

Yes check.svg Done extended permanently, congratulations on your promotion. --DannyS712 (talk) 21:15, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Inappropriate Comment in Training[edit]


In the section titled 'Board Member Behaviour' PatraKing has left a comment that is reflective of victim-blaming and rape-culture. This makes it unsafe for women and victims of sexual assault. What is the best way to deal with this? I am particularly concerned given this is connected to a training model about keeping people safe from harrassment."

I posted this in another section and was advised to request help here. Thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by DrMushEa (talk)

@DrMushEa: I have removed the comment you mention. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:21, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Massmessage rights[edit]

Hi, I've noticed that I suddenly no longer have the mass message rights to send the newsletter on behalf of Wikimedia Nederland to talk pages of users who have signed up for it. Is it possible to restore this? Thanks in advance. --Germien Cox (talk) 09:33, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

@Germien Cox:Yes check.svg Restored and since you had 2 runs of temporary grants, I had set it without expiry this time. Hope this helps. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:21, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
