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.

Request for MassMessage sender permission[edit]

Hi. I'm working with Johan on Tech/News, mostly as his back-up for vacations/etc. I'd like to request MassMessage sender permission, for the rare occasions when I'll need to step in. I'm familiar with how the extension works, and will be specifically learning (via screenshare) how Johan uses it for this widely-delivered newsletter, over the next few weeks. Thanks.

Flag is assigned. --Vogone (talk) 17:47, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Archives (वर्तमान)[edit]

In the top bar of Meta:Requests for deletion, using German interface, there appears the thing mentioned in the title in the place where on all other pages there is "Archives (current)". I am currently clueless about where to fix this translation resp. make the fallback to Hindhi(?) disappear. --MF-W 22:18, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Fixed. Matiia (talk) 23:41, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Edit filter error 29-08-2015[edit]

I received this warning when posting an edit request to Talk:Don't be a jerk:

Warning: This action has been automatically identified as harmful. Unconstructive edits will be quickly reverted, and may result in your account or IP address being blocked from editing. If this action is constructive, you may submit it again, and report this error. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

So I’m reporting it here, where the “report this error” link took me. — 06:03, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

And again on User talk:Tharthan. — 06:14, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

This filter has a quite complicated regex and is bound to get many FPs. I rewrote it last year but it was catching lots of FPs so I didn't enable warning and tagging. MarcoAurelio enabled warn and tag recently but I think we still need to improve it before it should have warn again. I've made it log and tag only now. Regards, --Glaisher (talk) 08:11, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! I suspect it was triggered because my edits included the word “dick,” but that seems pretty arbitrary to me. — 19:38, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Again on the incorrect template import[edit]

Template:Languages has a Lua error, but it's not a module; see history and info. Given phabricator:T72592 perhaps someone can achieve "editcontentmodel" right, but IIRC it's enough to delete the page and restore it. --Nemo 13:24, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

I deleted the template, then restored it, but the error still shows. Can you please guide us on which further steps we should take to solve this? —MarcoAurelio 13:31, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Legoktm fixed it. See also phab:T85847. --Glaisher (talk) 16:24, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
