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.

Needs an update, Syum90, please make the text1="The WikiConference India 2016 is now open for scholarship applications." Thanks, Jim Carter (talk) 16:19, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Why priority is 35%? @Syum90:, this is India's biggest Wikimedia Conference. Jim Carter (talk) 17:16, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
@Jim Carter: Not limited now. I understand that this campaign is only for logged in users, is this correct?--Syum90 (talk) 17:37, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes, it is correct. The campaign is only for logged-in users. BTW thanks, Syum90. Jim Carter (talk) 17:52, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
@Syum90: I recently learned that you have not added "bn" into the list even when I have mentioned it above. Please add Bengali (bn) to the list where the campaign should run. Thank you! Jim Carter (talk) 16:23, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

@Jim Carter: Now added. I had added bh instead of bn. Regards.--Syum90 (talk) 16:35, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

@Syum90: Could you please change the text1 to "Last date to submit scholarship applications for WikiConference India 2016 is May 31, 2016." Thanks! Jim Carter (talk) 16:09, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Changed. Regards.--Syum90 (talk) 16:17, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Listing/Linking Arabic Login in page[edit]

There is an Arabic version for the login page . But the Arabic language is not listed in the default login page. And if you were browsing the Arabic version of meta wiki and clicked on create account you will be redirected to the English copy, even though Arabic copy of the same page exist. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ghassanmass (talk)

Aren't those languages chosen by MediaWiki? Perhaps you can try filing a Phabricator ticket requesting a link to the Arabic version to be added there. --Glaisher (talk) 16:47, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi? —MarcoAurelio 17:53, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
