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.

Edit request due to filter issue while translating Office actions/September 2021 statement[edit]

The abuse filter #92 has been triggered as I attempt to submit translation strings for such page in Korean. I assume that putting a username consisted of Chinese characters—which has been mentioned on the original page—in the translation caused the issue.

I'd like to request a bypass edit as following, In both Translations:Office actions/September 2021 statement/17/ko and Translations:Office actions/September 2021 statement/19/ko: Replacing @@ to 玄客. -- 08:08, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Please remove CNA from Tonina Zhelyazkova (WMDE)[edit]

@MF-Warburg @MarcoAurelio Hello, could you please remove CNA from Tonina Zhelyazkova (WMDE)? They're no longer a WMDE employee (I just locked the account). Thanks! Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:04, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Done. --MF-W 11:48, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Just an note: On Babel there are discussions of CNA inactivity removals, just for more publicity and is sort of linked to this topic. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:08, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Request for patroller[edit]

Hi, I will like to be the patroller right here at meta, here's some of my rvv and mark as CSD, [1], [2], [3], thanks.--Jonathan5566(talk) 13:00, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Why are all the 3 diffs the same? Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:01, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[]
+ I count less than 20 undos as well as less than 10 CSD (admin only link) as well as please don't RR war with trolls as these are unproductive. I think more experience is needed. I sort of supported your autopatrol but I don't think you are ready for patroller. Sorry. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:05, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Agree and I don't see the point of granting the rights.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:49, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[]

To merge versions[edit]

Good day!


This edition

cancels the revision I made to the RFC I created. I set anchors without editing someone else's text to be able to link to

from my reply

As a result of edition (1), links (2) and (3) were broken, which were already used to address replicas on external resources and are now invalid too.

I am asking for help:

  • Since I do not object to the possibility of parallel existence of both structures, therefore I ask to restore my version of the discussion structure by merging the current version of the article with the state before the edition (1).
  • I also ask on behalf of the administration to inform the opponent that when addressing, addressing my remarks and in other cases, that I ask to adhere to the use of my name in the form "Va", that is, as I indicate in the signature and as it was in the version, which was removed by revision (1).
  • I also ask you to pay attention to possible interference in the text of some persons by other persons, which may at least be unethical.

Thank you in advance.

The original text in Russian:

Добрый день!

Описание: Данная редакция (1) отменяет сделанную мной редакцию в созданно мной RfC. Я установил якоря не редактируя чужой текст для возможности сослаться на (2) из моей реплики (3) Как итог редакции (1) были сломаны ссылки (2) и (3), которые уже использованы для адресации к репликам на внешних ресурсах и теперь невалидны.

Я прошу помочь:

  • Поскольку я не возражаю против возможности паралельного существования обоих структур, поэтому я прошу восстановить мой вариант структуры дискуссии путём слияния текущей редакции статьи с состоянием до редакции (1).
  • Также прошу от лица администрации сообщить оппоненту, что при обращении, адресации к моим репликам и в других случаях, что я прошу придерживаться использования моего имени в форме "Va", то есть так, как я указываю в подписи и как было в версии, которая была удалена редакцией (1).
  • Также прошу обратить внимание на возможные вмешательства в текст одних лиц со стороны других лиц, что может быть как минимум не этично.

Заранее благодарю.

@Vami: as all of these edits are to the same page, administrator technical work is not required to "merge" anything - simply make a new revision of the page. — xaosflux Talk 13:26, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[]
