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.

Can not edit Meta-wiki even if have GIPBE premission[edit]

I currently have GIPBE permissions, but the proxy I used when editing Meta-Wiki cannot be edited and I cannot edit my talk page. A few days ago, I sent an email to the steward mailing list to report this matter but I did not receive any response. Therefore, can I grant me a local IPBE permission for Meta-Wiki? Thank you!

Block message below:

Your account or IP address has been blocked.
What can I do now?
You can email ‪Martin Urbanec‬ or another administrator (list) to contest the block. You cannot use the email this user feature unless a valid email address is specified in your account preferences, has been confirmed, and you are not disallowed from using it while blocked.

Your current IP address is 2406:da18:f31:8300:6627:ee78:8962:58a7 and the block ID is #191997. Please include this in any queries. Blocked users can edit their own user talk page, unless specifically disallowed from doing so (if you are not logged in as a registered user, this will be the talk page for your IP address). You can add {{unblock|your reason for requesting an unblock here}} to your user talk page to request unblocking.

If the block reason seems unrelated to you, it is possible you were affected by a software feature known as the autoblock. In that case, contact an administrator and they will do their best to remove the autoblock. Please note that, for technical reasons, removing the autoblock is not always possible. In such cases, you may need to wait 24 hours for the autoblock to expire.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have happened.

@夢蝶葬花: You can clearly edit metawiki as you have edited here. Aside from that, global IPBE only overrides stewards' global blocks, it will never override a local block by an admin. And to note that metawiki is not impacted by/excluded from stewards' global blocks anyway, only local blocks. Local IPBE granted for 12 months.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:49, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks! 夢蝶葬花 (talk) 05:35, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
The IP mentioned in the request (rather the /36 range) is blocked locally but not globally. I'm not sure why Martin Urbanec did not perform a global block but that is why GIPBE did not work, as Billinghurst explained. ~~~~

Autopatroller for Hulged[edit]

Hello, I am Hulged (talk · contribs). I have been here for the past few months and I help out at translating to Urdu. I have translated Meta:Autopatroller and Meta:Civility to the urdu and in future I hope to help translating even more.
I would like to request autopatroller flag so that my edits are automatically marked as patrolled. Thanks, Hulged (talk) 08:36, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose Your account is blocked at English Wikipedia for sockpuppetry, and the English Wikipedia is the only project you have significant experience at. I'm unable to support a permission request of someone who does not explain what happened and why should the community still trust you here. Sincerely, Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:35, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
Martin Urbanec, that's what I was afraid of! I am blocked on English wikipedia for abusing multiple accounts but I have the will to move forward productively and as they said, I am waiting for few months to appeal my block there. I know I did wrong there and but I have changed totally since then. Here at meta, I would like to help translate pages to urdu language. Hulged (talk) 13:25, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
Comment Comment I don't see the need for you to be autopatrolled, there is no need for the patrol marks to come off your edits. I wouldn't fuss that they are there, they are more indicators for us, than for you, especially as we operate our spaces and patrolling differently that the wikipedias.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:47, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done per above. User's edits needs to be patrolled. Aside from exception from few abuse filters, having AP will have no affect on your editing. -- CptViraj (talk) 15:26, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
