Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat

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.

Requested change to filter 110[edit]

I would suggest a change to global filter 110 that can exclude a specific sentence from eswiki when users are creating new pages with a new page wizard, some cleanup and optimization, and excluded MediaWiki since it has its own emoji filter; here's the new code:

!"autoconfirmed" in user_rights &
page_namespace == 0 &
(
    emoji := "[🌀-🙏🚀-🛼🤌-🧿🩰-🫶☀-☄☇-♬♰-✒✙-➿۩]";
    rcount(emoji, added_lines) > 0 &
    (
        rcount(emoji, added_lines) > 
        rcount(emoji, removed_lines)
    ) & (
        page_title != "Emoji" &
        !added_lines irlike "{{unicode\|" &
        !added_lines irlike "{{nihongo\|" &
        !new_wikitext irlike "\[\[Category:Unicode blocks\]\]" &
        !new_wikitext irlike "Esta nota contiene algunas 📆instrucciones" &
        !contains_any(wiki_name, "frwiki", "mediawikiwiki")
    ) 
)

Thank you. Codename Noreste 🤔 Talk 08:12, 8 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Codename Noreste: Done - though I removed the MediaWiki exclusion since its corresponding local filter is just an older version of this one, so I disabled that instead. Leaderboard (talk) 07:50, 12 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

massmessage sender for Want[edit]

I am 'sysop' and 'translationadmin' MediaWiki.org, and can write mass messages to talk pages of anothers translators. But not every translator has account on MediaWiki.org as main. Sometime I want send info about waiting pages, but only Meta-Wiki user with a rights of 'massmessage sender' can write the global messages to another wiki of Wikimedia farm. It's all. Thanks, -- Want (talk) 12:34, 9 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

This is actually a local right, so it should be requested at RFH. ~~~~

User:Want/Translators_to_czech It is a group of the most active translators of documentation on mediawiki.org into Czech -- Want (talk) 14:02, 9 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Main info target for us is a page mw:Project:Translation/cs where is a table of translated pages and pages waiting to markup. This is what I do when I find time and want to be able to inform the translator after marking that pages are ready for translation. -- Want (talk) 14:13, 9 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Please intervene with Lighthumormonger[edit]

Greetings, I engaged in some discussion on User talk:Lighthumormonger, and I have found this editor to be disingenuous. They have been evasive, obtuse, and combative about simple questions. I've opened a case on Commons because I identified serious issues of deception and false copyright claims. They've engaged in original research and other policy violations on enwiki. They had some trouble on itwiki as well. It seems that they've been hopping around, and trolling as they go. Their account was created as early as April 2023, but this alleged "Wikipedia Editors Guild" was hardly mentioned two weeks ago. Their topic interests are all over the map. There is a façade of civility and cooperation, but the recent disruption here on their Meta user talk page has left me with no choice but to escalate this issue. Thank you.

As I just replied over at Elizium23's commons.wikimedia ani board posting from just a few minutes ago, I'm just trying to improve WP one edit at a time here. If Elizium23 would like to discuss any more with me about any of this, my Wikimedia user talk page is open to him for a 'mutually respectful' conversation anytime. I personally like to hope and believe that Wikipedia could be a place where editors could generally be friends and not just 'frenemies' or enemies.

  • @Elizium23 Please provide specific diffs of contributions, here on the meta-wiki, that you think are violating our policies (the primary user conduct policy is Meta:Civility). Please note, issues you may have with a contributor on on other projects can not be resolved here. — xaosflux Talk 15:29, 14 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
    I want @Lighthumormonger to stop posting on my talk pages, and I don't want to receive their notifications or pings. If LHM has something to say, they can say it in a public forum without being personal. I have nothing personal on LHM and I do not wish to be personally involved with this drama. LHM can show good faith by leaving me alone. Elizium23 (talk) 20:11, 14 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
I will be happy to stop posting on your Talk page. Thank you for letting me know here first that this is your wish. I too have no desire either to be involved in any drama with you. Could we please at some point just imagine we didn't know each other, if that is what you really want? I would imagine that we probably both have much better things to do with our time right now.

Preventing from adding my email address on my mini grant application.[edit]

Hello !

I hope my message finds you well. I apply a mini grant and I try to add my email address but I couldn't, what is my problem ? Ibrahim Sani Mustapha (talk) 15:28, 14 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Your edit was blocked by an abuse filter. Normally, the problem should be resolved if you use the nospam template correctly (please check the template's documentation (here) for more information. The problem right now is that you should add the domain as the second parameter (and not your full email). Daniuu (talk) 15:32, 14 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
