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.

Closure of RFCs[edit]

Maybe someone could have a look whether Meta:Requests for comment/Meta admin ~riley is abusing power and Meta:Requests for comment/Admin Billinghurst is abusing power - limiting editing my userpage for no reason could be closed. I think they can be, they are not active anymore and really never have attracted many comments. I have commented on the former to understand what the issue actually is supposed to be, but I failed to understand it. Hence I'm not closing them myself. But it seems a bit stupid for these two admins to have "open" RFCs with their name in them when nobody except the opener of the RFC is thinking that they are "abusing power". --MF-W 19:12, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

Thinking that that account should be blocked temporarily from editing the whole site, I think... 02:37, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
Ping pong pung. --MF-W 21:46, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I also don't understand what those two RfC are for. Casting aspersions? I find the usage of words related to criminal procedure, such as wikt:indictment rather problematic. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:16, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
Checkmark This section is resolved and can be archived. If you disagree, replace this template with your comment. Sgd. —Hasley 10:41, 12 July 2020 (UTC) (Both have been closed by 1997kB.)


Hello all. Should {{edit protected}} be merged into {{edit request}}? The latter is able to categorise requests into different categories, Category:Meta protected edit requests for interface administrators and Category:Meta protected edit requests. Seems uncontroversial to me but a second take on this would be better. Minorax (talk) 15:41, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Just a note, please update Template:Recentchangestext if needed since it has a count of the requests. — xaosflux Talk 16:20, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
As in the previous case, Module:Project portal should be updated too. Sgd. —Hasley 23:56, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Request Patroller right for 129femtoseconds[edit]

Hello. I'm requesting patroller's rights for fighting vandalism on this meta-wiki. I'm an active member of SWMT and rollbacker on jawiki. Also, I'm translating English pages on meta to Japanese and want to patroll new pages translated into Japanese pages by other users, so I need patroller's rights, thanks,--129femtoseconds (talk) 23:30, 9 July 2020 (UTC)minor correction--129femtoseconds (talk) 04:41, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

  • Oppose Oppose I think you lack the experience[1]. Inappropriate reporting [2]. At least, there is no need to suppress an account "切削", no abusive username. --Infinite0694 (Talk) 12:34, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
