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.

Special:Contribs/Toad4707[edit]

Edits of said user is likely to be machine translations and I'd like to kindly request another admin to go through the remaining edits to determine whether they should be kept --Minorax«¦talk¦» 11:33, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'd like to add that said user created pages within seconds of each other and is such editing behaviour is only possible with the aid of translation engines. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 11:36, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Minorax: it looks like this user knows a lot of languages (I've seen them doing translations into Tamil, Finnish, Italian, Kinyarwanda, French, Spanish). I have asked for a second opinion on the translations into Tamil. Daniuu (talk) 22:54, 30 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Symbol wait.svg Doing... - some additional checks showed that a significant part of the translations showed rather strong resemblance to the output of Google Translate. I will remove them. Daniuu (talk) 18:28, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've nuked a first batch and will look further tomorrow. Daniuu (talk) 23:53, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
