2017 Persian Wikipedia Arbitration Committee Election[edit]

Hello Stewards,

This is the second year that the Persian Wikipedia community is going to hold the Arbitration Committee Election using SecurePoll just like the English Wikipedia. We have taken care of all the arrangements. We just need one steward to volunteer to serve as a scrutineer. We would prefer if that scrutineer does not have much involvement with fawiki in order to help preserve the integrity of the election. The current timetable will have voting between 10 and 23 November. We expect a voter turnout of about 100 users, so the job will not be hard. Please feel free to contact me or User:Huji if you have any questions. Thanks in advance, 4nn1l2 (talk) 20:17, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Thanks 4nn1l2 for starting the topic, as you said, I am happy to answer any questions. I think it is a good to ping User:Jalexander-WMF as well. Huji (talk) 01:58, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
I forwarded this to the stewards mailing list and both Einsbor and RadiX volunteered for this role. Trijnsteltalk 13:05, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. That is great. We can have both of them as scrutineers. 4nn1l2 (talk) 22:55, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

My unblock on en:wiktionary[edit]

Hi, I would like to get unblocked, or at least being able to edit my own userpage to request unblock, since I cannot even do so. The reason given was "Mass-adding nonsensical translation requests": in fact there has been nonsense translation requests in a variety of languages for a few months, but not all were meaningless (though sounded weird) and I answered a few of them. People who write such requests do not necessarily master the language very well and their requests may appear strange. Thank you Bu193 (talk) 09:29, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Hello, there is their own community and admins, so stewards can't help you here. If you want, you can contact the user on Meta (User talk:Wyang). Stryn (talk) 16:35, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
But his answering here is unlikely since he has no edit here. I just would like to be able to edit my user talk page en:wiktionary to ask for unblock there. Bu193 (talk) 10:56, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
Many users get a notification if their talk page has been edited on any wikis. Stryn (talk) 12:35, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
