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.

Help filing RfC for global ban of Midnight68[edit]

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)[reply]

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)[reply]
Probably not related to the abuse filter false positive, but you aren't eligible to file a global ban proposal because you don't have at least 500 edits globally (on all Wikimedia wikis) (from Global bans#Obtaining consensus for a global ban). * Pppery * it has begun 21:19, 23 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
