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.

Yanlış Engelleme[edit]

Good day everyone, my mother tongue is Turkish Wikipedia and I contribute there. I started to contribute today and I am trying to improve Wikipedia as much as I can because I love Wikipedia. My main reason is User "Eighty two hundred forty-five" who has Turkish Wikipedia administrator privileges has blocked me for no reason and He didn't even send any notification, please I request that he be unblocked. You can check my contributions on my Turkish Wikipedia page. I haven't had any harmful activities. I have 100 more changes, please, I want this injustice to be corrected, with all due respect. Bendejman (talk) 17:11, 21 July 2021 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm not an admin here, but I don't think meta sysops can do much since they have no or little rights on trwiki, unless of course, that's their home wiki or they were given rights there. But a global sysop can help. I can't think of any on the top of my head, but you might also want to ask that user on why they blocked you on meta. Hope that helps, SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 02:38, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
  • X mark.svg Not done Nothing we can do here. Meta isn't an appeal court, per WM:NOT. What we can do here is to help communicate, I will suggest you asking them what you had done wrong on their meta talkpage. If that isn't working, I will suggest approaching one other trwp sysop on their meta talkpage. Beyond that, options are few as projects have their independence and we won't interfere, unless if there is a pattern of major abuse, in that case, please file a RFC if needed noting the strict criterion. For these issues, global sysops can't help as they aren't allowed to use their tools even if it's a GS wiki as it isn't balant vandalism, xwiki spam etc. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:52, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Hello, Seksen iki yüz kırk beş I wonder why you blocked the Turkish Wikipedia, I want to know about it, best regards Bendejman —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bendejman (talk) 10:07, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

@Bendejman: Use User talk:Seksen iki yüz kırk beş for it, not here, thanks so much. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:08, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Request for patroller right[edit]

Hi there, I'm just requesting for the patroller right so I can access the rollback tool. I don't do too much patrolling here, but when it get's quiet on other wiki's or I have nothing better to do, I often patrol meta.

I haven't made too much reverts, but given with the recent vandalism on my talk page, I would find the rollback tool quite effective and easy to revert. I've got rollback on 5 other WMF projects, with no issues to date.

Cheers, SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 02:35, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

@SHB2000 Leaving to someone else to evaluate, but just a note, we do not tag locked users with locked global account template unless it's done by the locking person (WMF or local), unless it's legal or foundation ban. This is per general DENY and etc. Thanks so much for your other contributions. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:53, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
I see. I saw User:Jeff G. do it, so I thought it's common practice to tag the account. But thanks for the note, as I was unaware of that. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 09:57, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
@SHB2000 Yeah, true, but it indeed isn't the common practice here. Looking through the rest, I don't see a reason not to grant +patroller. But since I am not that active recently, deferring to someone else to flip. Best Regards, Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:02, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
@SHB2000 and Camouflaged Mirage: Sorry, I didn't know that. I will avoid doing so here for normal locks. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 12:06, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
But in saying that, I only saw you do that to Naledi Mathatho sockpuppets, and not every locked user SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 12:08, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
@SHB2000 and Camouflaged Mirage: I just noticed that {{locked global account}} is transcluded in userspace here 351 times; surely, those cannot all be legal or foundation bans or Steward uses. I have never seen a Steward use it. I have used {{locked}} here 13 times because I did not know about {{locked global account}}. Please ping me when replying. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 12:31, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
I noticed that a bunch of them were this user: User:슉슉이 [number]번 클론. I think they were put by Jerrykim306. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 12:35, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
@Jeff G.@SHB2000 For more details, please read this. In short, we aren't wanting to leave memorials for LTAs and etc. Yeah, I know there are some transculsions, by some users (me included very early on on meta and my explanation is here). Well we don't really have a policy against but personally per DENY etc shall we not tag? I think tagging doesn't help much in some sense. Hope you will understand. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:48, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
Coming as a Wikivoyage admin myself, deny recognition is taken too far there (there's a user who has deleted every vandalism log that they have reverted, and I think hiding goes too far there), and I can completely understand here on meta where it hasn't gone overboard, and I don't think it will ever be. SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 12:51, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
Actually this is getting way too long for someone else to review, and having reviewed your contributions, and sysop experience elsewere (and rollback), there is no reason for me not to grant directly (this is sort of intended use of the group), so considered it Yes check.svg Done. Happy editing SHB2000. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:57, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the rights as well as letting me know about tagging LTA pages. Have a great afternoon (or morning, depending on your time zone) Cheers, SHB2000 (talk | contibs | en.wikivoyage | en.wikipedia) 12:59, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
