Hello, Sample Message would be: Join us for office hours on (date and time) and similar announcements about User group events. The audience for the messages would be our members (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_and_Libraries_User_Group/Members). I would need this capability at least through January 2023, or for one year from now. Please let me know what else you need from me.
Earlier request: I'm chair of the Wikimedia and Libraries User Group Steering Committee and I want to send our 380+ members. --Windblown29 (talk) 15:48, 28 April 2022 (UTC)
- @Windblown29 Hello. I mean a full message that you will send and a MMS list that is created. For example you might want to refer to this. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:07, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

Help filing RfC for global ban of Midnight68
I was advised to start an RfC about banning a long-term problem user. After spending a lot of time creating the RfC, I was unable to save it because of "abuse 23". When I tried to ask an admin for help, I discovered that my account had been blocked by the abuse filter bot. @Xaosflux: suggested I ask for help here. I was able to save a draft of the RfC in my userspace on English Wikipedia. It would be ideal if someone could start the RfC for me with that draft. Failing that, could someone at least tell me why I am unable to save the RfC so that I can fix it myself? Thanks. B. disruptus (talk) 20:50, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
- Note to admins, this was hitting private filter Special:AbuseFilter/214 = which is fairly broad and impacts newer editors. — xaosflux Talk 20:55, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
Please also revoke TPA. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 06:17, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
- @NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh Done. But next time could you just re-open the above section for completeness of record. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:04, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
