Hi, How can a open a new request for comment?علی مکریانی (talk) 07:36, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

@علی مکریانی: You have to create a sub-page of Requests for comment, like [[Requests for comment/EXAMPLETITLE]]. You also need to ensure you add Template:Rfc subpage to the top. You have enough edits to start one. --IWI (talk) 07:42, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

Tagging locked global account[edit]

Hello IWI, per practice here it is not to tag unless a steward tag those pages, there is no need per DENY and etc. Hope you understand where I am coming from. Early on I also tag for such users but was adviced not too, it's a common issues with users. We had some discussion on the meta noticeboards and it was decided not to tag. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:31, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

@Camouflaged Mirage: Yes I understand. Sorry about that and thanks for letting me know. --IWI (talk) 08:48, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
It's okay. The only ones that are ok to tag are foundation banned users (Office actions) - on the main account only as well as those community banned users (main account) where a link to the community ban discussion will be very helpful for future review. Thanks. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:46, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Its me, TTP1233, could you please explain how it works?TTP1233 (talk) 08:43, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

@TTP1233: I do not understand; explain how what works? --IWI (talk) 08:45, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Explain how this metawiki works and what contributions I can make here? TTP1233 (talk) 08:47, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
@TTP1233: Metawiki is just a place where all communities can coordinate. It's not really a place to contribute to. There are places like SRG where you can ask for stewards to global lock/block accounts/IPs that are abusing many wikis. --IWI (talk) 08:52, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Steward confirmations[edit]

Hello. I am aware that I absolutely cannot !vote in the Steward elections. Can I !vote in the Steward confirmations? Are there any eligibility requirements for those? Thanks, Belwine💬📜 18:05, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

@Belwine: Since the confirmations aren't a vote, the only requirements are "an account that has edits (on any wiki) before 05 February", which I'm pretty sure your account does. --IWI (talk) 18:08, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. —Belwine💬📜 18:09, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Your script[edit]

Hi IWI. Note that your script needs an update as

  • BRPever is now a global sysop
  • Krd is no longer a steward
  • NahidSultan is now a global sysop
  • Rxy is no longer a steward

Thanks, --Belwine (talk) 17:30, 7 March 2021 (UTC)

@Belwine: Indeed, thanks for reminding me. I will have to update, also for the elections too. Best, --IWI (talk) 17:31, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
Oh, and on the global sysop one.. CptViraj and Savh are now global sysops. Thanks, --Belwine (talk) 17:15, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
I intended to do this later but completely forgot, lol. Let me do this now.. --IWI (talk) 18:20, 10 March 2021 (UTC)


Have you considered changing your signature on meta? TWGlobal automatically puts -- before your signature, and so your signature on steward requests looks a little strange. --Belwine (talk) 20:56, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

@Belwine: Indeed that does look a bit strange. I have removed the "--" here on meta. Thanks, IWI (talk) 13:51, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
