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.

Suggestion[edit]

Just for convinience, can we somehow transclude Category:Meta protected edit requests to this page? 163.116.130.27 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]

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]

Yes check.svg Done @511KeV: I've added you, please be sure not to flood recent changes/etc by high-speed editing with that tool. — xaosflux Talk 16:55, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can't create account in ENwiki, need help[edit]

I'm using NetScope, a proxy (apparently not an open one) that is enforced by the internet admin. As a result I can't autocreate my account there because my IP range is blocked. Can someone please help? 137a (talk) 14:53, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@137a please see w:Wikipedia:Unblock Ticket Request System, submit a request using that form and an enwiki admin can look in to that for you, let them know the same information you put above. Alternatively, you could try to use a different network, such as a mobile data connection. — xaosflux Talk 16:52, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
