Mass message sender rights
Hi, in my request of 25 January, I wrote that "I only foresee needing it [mass message sender rights] this month". This has proven to be somewhat short-sighted, as circumstances have since changed and I now anticipate being publisher or back-up publisher of The Signpost for the foreseeable future. I was able to publish The Signpost without any issues in February and would like to request the mass message sender right on a permanent basis. If you read my prior request there is precedent for this right for this purpose, and should circumstances change--as they seem to do often--and I no longer need the right, I intend to request that the right be removed.

In the section titled 'Board Member Behaviour' PatraKing has left a comment that is reflective of victim-blaming and rape-culture. This makes it unsafe for women and victims of sexual assault. What is the best way to deal with this? I am particularly concerned given this is connected to a training model about keeping people safe from harrassment."

Hi, I've noticed that I suddenly no longer have the mass message rights to send the newsletter on behalf of Wikimedia Nederland to talk pages of users who have signed up for it. Is it possible to restore this? Thanks in advance. --Germien Cox (talk) 09:33, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
- @Germien Cox: Restored and since you had 2 runs of temporary grants, I had set it without expiry this time. Hope this helps. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:21, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
