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.

Just for convinience, can we somehow transclude Category:Meta protected edit requests to this page? 15:51, 24 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We already link it from Special:RecentChanges with a counter, so that should be enough. — xaosflux Talk 17:55, 24 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Seconded. That's enough for me personally as I use RC to patrol maintenance. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 06:39, 26 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Talk:Steward requests/Global‎[edit]

Can someone take a look at Talk:Steward requests/Global‎? There are multiple accounts & IPs reverting each other, most of them appear to be sockpuppets. I already blocked one crosswiki vandal [1] but I'm not sure about the other accounts. Johannnes89 (talk) 11:13, 25 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question regarding steward requests[edit]

I was about to request a global block for an IP range, but there was already an open request to block a single address within that range. I am wondering if the appropriate action would be for me to file a new request, add a comment to the original request, or to not make a request at all. --Painting17 (talk) 21:04, 25 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just add your comment under the first one request. If it is urgent I can ask for you via chat--Pierpao (talk) 21:13, 25 November 2022 (UTC) Painting17--Pierpao (talk) 21:14, 25 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Painting17: From next time, please use SN for stewards' related discussions. Many thanks, — Tulsi 24x7 11:08, 26 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Semi protection for Talk:Pageviews Analysis[edit]

Talk:Pageviews Analysis has been vandalized repeatedly in the last few months. Can it be semi-protected? (I'm not sure where the vandalism comes from, though - is the page highly visible somehow?) whym (talk) 02:21, 27 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AWB access on Meta[edit]

Hi, I want to use AWB to fix some typos in Kashmiri language pages that are due to missing characters in the keyboards. Could you please enable the access. I have already this access on other projects and I am fully aware about the policies and guidelines. I also am aware that any missuse will result in my account being blocked. Rest assured, I won't missuse this tool. Thankyou 511KeV (talk) 05:44, 27 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
