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.

[FYI Admins] semi-protected Jimbo's talk page[edit]

Jimbo's talk page is now just a target for abuse for anything but real accounts. As we all have better things to do than sit around and let an LTA get his jollies, and others having to react. Jimbo doesn't answer there, and one suspects he never visits, but irrespective of that, it comes to managing this wiki appropriately and equitably. Implemented semi-protection.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:53, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protection for Bridges across Cultures[edit]

Hi! Is it possible to protect Bridges across Cultures pages and other pages related to the contest. In the past days, the main page has been vandalized several times. --Osmar Valdebenito, B1mbo (talk) 16:47, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done for main page, X mark.svg Not done for others (not vandalized enough (yet?)) --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:51, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protection for Steward requests/Permissions[edit]

No reason for keeping this open for IPs. Had been vandalised in past. -- CptViraj (📧) 05:19, 15 December 2019 (UTC)

Not done. We can't protect it only against IP's. This page is edited by users from small wikis who have never edited here and, thus, aren't autoconfirmed. Matiia (talk) 05:26, 15 December 2019 (UTC)
@CptViraj: Mate, it is a stewards' page, we generally wouldn't interfere on such a page. These stewards are both clueful and skillful, and know how to manage their pages without the advice or interference of others, either admins or general users.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:31, 15 December 2019 (UTC)
@Matiia and Billinghurst: I got it, Thankyou and Regards. -- CptViraj (📧) 05:36, 15 December 2019 (UTC)
