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 role[edit]

Hi, I would like to get access for MassMessage Sender role. I am part of the Global Reach team at the Wikimedia Foundation. This access will help us to push communication from our team to the global communities. For example, we have an upcoming office hour for the South Asian region, and we would like to post an invitation in village pumps specific to the communities in this region. Thanks.--RAyyakkannu (WMF) (talk) 12:56, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Reset password[edit]

Hi, I signed up in September 2016, but I have forgotten my password. I haven't created/edited any pages yet. Unfortunately, I didn't enter my Email, so I can't reset my password by myself. I don't want to create a new account - I want to save my username. What can I do?

There is no posibility of password reset for accounts without a registered email address. Sorry but I think you've lost the account. —MarcoAurelio 14:13, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

No open proxies[edit]

Просто какой-то оголтелый «нацизм\тоталитаризм\демократия» блокировать за прокси! Я не про себя – смотрел историю изменений, где QBA-bot периодически банит IP которые и вандализмом не занимались – только по адресному признаку. Ну, как тут люди, а в у вас там в Израиле нет. И притом Википедия сама-то в интернете, но не принимает пользователей, окромя тех у кого нашита звёздочка поясняющая! Поняли? Ещё и на английском. -??? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Тише, пожалуйста. NOP — это вынужденные меры, без этого правила любые блокировки зарегистрированных или незарегистрированных участников не имели бы ни малейшего смысла — обход блокировки был бы делом нескольки кликов, безконечное количество раз. Было бы хорошо никого не блокировать, но увы не у всех кто приходит в проект, который может редактировать каждый, хорошие намерения. Опытные зарегистрированные участники имеют возможность запросить специальный флаг разрешающий обходить блокировки айпи-адресов, а также использовать Tor, в случае если они могут представить любые здравые аргументы зачем им это. P.S. Физически проекты Фонда Викимедиа в США, а не в Израиле. --Base (talk) 20:45, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Quarry crashed?[edit]

I don't know where to ask, mw:Talk:Quarry seems not to be read by any admin. Quarry has crashed or is running extremly slowly once again. The latest queries are "running" though they don't. Whom or where should one ask for a resetting Quarry and killing dead queries? The oldest query I know of is still "running" for half a year. See also 2016 Community Wishlist Survey/Categories/Bots and gadgets#Quarry maintenance. --Achim (talk) 20:02, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

You could try asking at #wikimedia-labsconnect or file a new Phabricator task tagged with quarry. --Glaisher (talk) 15:52, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
