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.

Edits of said user is likely to be machine translations and I'd like to kindly request another admin to go through the remaining edits to determine whether they should be kept --Minorax«¦talk¦» 11:33, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'd like to add that said user created pages within seconds of each other and is such editing behaviour is only possible with the aid of translation engines. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 11:36, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Minorax: it looks like this user knows a lot of languages (I've seen them doing translations into Tamil, Finnish, Italian, Kinyarwanda, French, Spanish). I have asked for a second opinion on the translations into Tamil. Daniuu (talk) 22:54, 30 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for MassMessage sender[edit]

I would like to request the right of MassMessage Sender to mass- sends messages about WMGMC's content to our group members. As you know, sending messages to forty users one by one is difficult if I do not have the right. And I had the same right on zhwiki for a long time too. So, can I apply for the right?

It is worth mentioning that because the rights requested on meta will allow me to send information globally, it is therefore easier for me to send the same text to users who choose to be on zhwiki and metawiki at the same time. BureibuNeko (talk) 00:34, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Yes check.svg Rights granted, taking into account the presence of similar rights in ZhWiki. --Mykola 01:57, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
