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.
Before posting to this page, make sure your comment doesn't belong at one of these specific request pages:
Import is currently enabled in this wiki from some projects. From other wikis, you will need to copy and paste your materials by hand but please remember to add a link, as a permanent link, and the history of the page being imported in the edit summary to avoid copyright violations.
Hello @AJ1m3,zsd. Meta isn't ground for testing, given your SUL, you had very little significant contribution elsewhere, I don't see why we shall allow you to test here on metawiki. I had deleted the template. Please observe Meta:Inclusion policy which states the scope, these pages for testings / sandbox are more suitable for use in testwiki, which you had some edits already. In addition, there is no reason for you needing sandboxing here, I will recommend you to visit one of our content project, either to contribute to the content or fight some vandalism. Well wishes. In addition, this is no need of admin intervention. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:09, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
I will add that a project like Wikipedia or maybe testwiki with build in sandbox capablity (i.e. there is sandbox activated by default) will be easier to experiment, and there are plenty of editors there which can guide you in building the edit notices and sandboxes. I hope you will find help in their help desks there. :) For meta, this can be better answered if ask in Tech or Meta:Babel I guess as those are more of community boards rathe than this which is for admin actions.

Further noting that Editnotice is a bit of a complex beast and to get it working easily the admins need to put in the parts of componentry to make it work sweetly. — billinghurstsDrewth 13:59, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
@AJ1m3,zsd. Helpful link: Please use User talk:AJ1m3,zsd./Editnotice as their username have a dot behind it, I am also fixing the ping for this one as the ping above won't reach him. I am trying to be helpful by providing these (fixes in ping / page names) and all the advices above, certainly not making things harder. Surely this is what is needed, and there is clearly no admin intervention needed, whosoever who know this, I admit I don't, can provide without needing it to be an admin. Your message on my talkpage saying "Well it seemed they got a bit of a slap" I aren't for what is worth. "guiding hand in the direction of what was available." is also untrue, I had tried my best to redirect them to places here on meta. I don't think this statement is correct and fair to me as the 1st responding admin here. I admit that my first respond may not be ideal and I will learn more.

Now you can use both links already as the above incorrect one seems to be fixed here, so any one should work for now. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:49, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
Back to the topic, they seems to want an edit notice for their sandbox, the above given link is for their talkpage, hence, the sandbox link should be User talk:AJ1m3,zsd./Sandbox/Editnotice (I think you have to set the sandbox into user talk namespace and not user, not too sure on this - I really don't know edit notice that well).

@Camouflaged Mirage: When I attempt to edit the editnotice for my sandbox talk page, it says: Warning! It seems you're editing an editnotice with an invalid name. What should I do? --AJ1m3,zsd. (talk) 22:10, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
