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 translation admin[edit]

I would like to translate Wikimedia Ghana User Group and its subpages into German. I already asked the Social Media Manager of the User Group (User:Owula kpakpo) for permission, which he granted. I don't manage to install the extension for marking pages for translation on my systems, that's why I am asking here. Thank you very much in advance. --Gereon K. (talk) 18:40, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the request and we hope this would go in a long way in helping our User group. Thanks again. Gereon K. --Owula kpakpo (talk) 15:50, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Block of User:ShreCk[edit]

Hi everyone, User:ShreCk, former president of Wikimedia France who left the movement very publicly months ago, made yet another derogatory and false claim about me here. It has been months, on social media, on mailing-lists, on actual mail sent to my home, in the press. This has to stop. Please make at least meta a safe space. Léna (talk) 22:40, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi there,
I never said that I was leaving the movement. I resigned from my WMFr Board position.
About the reason of this request, your name is not written in any question from myself on meta. I have personally experienced your false statements since february 2017 (to the WMF, on social media, ...), so I find it incredible that you allow yourself such a request here. You said a few weeks ago on Twitter that you had not received anything (e-mail, mail), you're now claiming the opposite. Thank you for illustrating incoherent posture.

X mark.svg Not done there is nothing requiring a block on that page. I ask both parties to be cognisant of reputation, and civil discourse, and edit accordingly.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:59, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Requesting close of an RfC This is just a request for an admin to close Requests for comment/Interlinking of accounts involved with paid editing to decrease impersonation which has been open since September 20, 2017. It has been widely advertised and it looks like everybody who is interested has put in their !vote and comments. Smallbones (talk) 20:51, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Second the closure request.It ought not to be a massive expenditure of time or other resources.Godric on Leave (talk) 04:16, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
