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.

MassMessage sender request[edit]

Hello. As organizer and leader of an affiliate (WikiDonne), I often need to send mass comunications to the members related to discussions, translations, events. Reason for which I'm asking for the mass sender flag. Thank you. Camelia (talk) 11:58, 5 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Camelia.boban can you point to a mass message target list that you intent to use? — xaosflux Talk 15:28, 5 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Xaosflux I didn't know how it works. So I need to create the lists first (I saw here, a model I can take inspiration from). As I have one for members, one for Commons & Wiki Loves Folklore Italy participants/jury, one for our itWikipedia members, for itWikiquote, for itWikibooks. --Camelia (talk) 15:55, 5 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Camelia.boban mass messaging can be disruptive if done wrong, so at the least we are looking to ensure those who may use it have a good understanding of both the mechanics and appropriate use. Will keep this on hold for now; please reply when you have a sample list made. You should be able to justify how destination targets got on your list as well (if they are not self-enrolled). Additionally, there are special considerations when sending to targets on other projects, such as how links and templates must be used for global delivery. Have you reviewed and understand the process for that? — xaosflux Talk 16:39, 5 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Xaosflux Here are the lists. I finally kept only the UG participants list (all signed voluntarily as participants) and users engaged in Wiki Loves Folklore Italy (WikiDonne board, jury and participants in the winners/finalists from the 3 editions of our contest). --Camelia (talk) 18:41, 5 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
