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.

Request for markup[edit]

please markup this category Special:Permalink/22158366 -- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 15:38, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[]

I assume you mean marking for translation. X mark.svg Not done, since none of the category members have translations/are marked for translation yet. ~~~~

@कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया Are you asking us to help you prepare the page for translation and mark it for translation also? Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:45, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@Camouflaged Mirage: जी, मैं यही कहने का प्रयास कर रहा हूं। कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 14:13, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[]
I think I got what they meant correctly. That will need some TA who have some spare time to mark it up then. More suited for Meta:Babylon in my opinion. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:32, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Lock request[edit]

User:Jimmyshjj-SAFETY,which was a sock puppet of User:Jimmyshjj who was locked with an expiration time of infinite (account creation disabled) due to vandalism.

 It looks like a duck to me puppet and See account creation log. Pavlov2 10:28, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Yes check.svg Blocked. For lock requests, see SRG, though since the main account is not locked, it's not necessary in this case. ~~~~

Request to edit fully protected page Legal/Legal Policies[edit]

Also tagging Billinghurst as the last protecting admin. Though I'm WMF staff, I do not have (or believe I qualify for) the advanced "staff" userright, so I'm currently unable to edit Legal/Legal Policies, as it is fully protected. I would like to make an update to the page on behalf of the Legal team. Would I either be able to have the page temporarily semi-protected instead of full-protected, or provide the text of the update to an administrator? Thank you! BChoo (WMF) (talk) 16:33, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Changed to semi-protected for now, let me know when you're done and I'll re-instate full protection. – Ajraddatz (talk) 16:42, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@BChoo (WMF): I am sure that any of us would also be happy to update a page for you if the text was provided and a diff with the request (as CYA to prevent any trouble). --TheSandDoctor Talk 17:10, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@Ajraddatz and TheSandDoctor: Thank you! The revision's complete for the time being. BChoo (WMF) (talk) 17:48, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@BChoo (WMF): You're very welcome! I've gone ahead and re-fully protected the page citing your message. --TheSandDoctor Talk 17:54, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@BChoo (WMF): If you need to edit it, then prod the staff right allocaters to consider giving you the right. If the full protection doesn't work, then we can look to protect this through adding an abusefilter if that is a better way to do things. For us, staff right is easier.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:37, 16 October 2021 (UTC)[]
