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.

Importing a talk page[edit]

Hi, I would ask for help with importing an Italian Wikiversity village pump talk from v:it:WV:Bar/Archivio/Servizi interprogetto into Talk:Italian Minor Projects' Wikimedia User Group/Servizi interprogetto, so I don't have to copy and paste the page history. I run the local village pump archives, so I feel I understand what I'm suggesting here. Of course all related links will be updated and the contents of the original talk page will be kept locally for archive purposes. --pegasovagante () 07:31, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

OK, standby. — xaosflux Talk 04:03, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done @Pegasovagante: that page is not suitable for import, as it is a copy and paste move from another page. — xaosflux Talk 04:06, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I forgot to point out that the original history is here (from 21:59, 21 nov 2017‎ to 19:51, 22 nov 2017‎; diff). --pegasovagante () 12:52, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done @Pegasovagante: just copy and paste the relevant page history to a linked subpage of the new talk page and possibly use a note on the page with an interwiki link to the other project's page. While a selected version import is possible by manually editing an XML export - that is generally only done for reversing bad merges. — xaosflux Talk 13:59, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Need help of uninvolved admin[edit]

Hello, please see User_talk:Stryn#Hello. Per en:Wikipedia:Blocking_policy#Protection, "a user may be blocked when necessary to protect its users" and en:Wikipedia:No legal threats, "If you post a legal threat on Wikipedia, you are likely to be blocked". If any uninvolved admin could take a look at the situation, also see that the user is blocked on many wikis already. I'm myself mostly away from my computer today. Thanks. Stryn (talk) 09:57, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

The user was meanwhile locked. --MF-W 13:15, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
Globally locked by Vituzzu due to cross-wiki harassment. SA 13 Bro (talk) 21:59, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Help for translating a template[edit]

Hello! I wanted to add some translations into Template:Done as for Template:Already done. However, Ruslik0 added a new parameter, and so I am not sure how to do it. In addition, Ruslik0 informed me that {{Autotranslate}} should be used but I do not know how to use it. So could you apply it on {{Done}} so that I can mimic it for the other similar templates? The French translation is "Fait". Pamputt (talk) 09:42, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
