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.
Before posting to this page, make sure your comment doesn't belong at one of these specific request pages:
Import is currently enabled in this wiki from some projects. From other wikis, you will need to copy and paste your materials by hand but please remember to add a link, as a permanent link, and the history of the page being imported in the edit summary to avoid copyright violations.
Every time you react, you join the dance, they get a little grin. If there is a true need to delete the edit summaries, we can. Personally I am inured to such words after years here and reading twitter. If the recipients wish for the to be revdel'd they just need to specifically ask for it to occur. — billinghurstsDrewth 08:10, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
This page is used by global blocked IPs for appealing global blocks, and should not be protected. @Trijnstel:.--GZWDer (talk) 18:34, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
When the page was unprotected, it was receiving far more LTA/vandal posts than legitimate appeals. We are investigating alternative means for allowing appeals of global blocks. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:10, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Probably appeals of all global blocks (whether blocked in Meta or not) and locks should go through OTRS. But this should be clearly indicated in the SRG page. In addition, if this is done we probably should remove the exception of Meta in global blocks.--GZWDer (talk) 09:32, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
Seeing how things have developed over the years I'd certainly support global blocks also applying to Meta-Wiki as well. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:22, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
@GZWDer: The instruction to email Stewards is on that page, if it isn't suitably clear, then I am sure that suggestions for improvement would be helpful. Users can also use the link email function. The talk page is also available to IP addresses and has been used regularly for those requests. — billinghurstsDrewth 11:26, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
Agreed, MA. I almost always check the "apply to Meta too" box when global blocking now. – Ajraddatz (talk) 14:50, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
