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.

The content you tried to save doesn't meet our scope anyway. Tropicalkitty (talk) 20:19, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
@Chip Cloud Project: 3 AbuseFilters stopped your edit, as your edit includes thing which aren't appropriate for user pages. Please read Meta:About for information what Meta-Wiki is about. This wiki isn't the place for putting content about musical bands. Matiia (talk) 03:38, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Request for semiprotection[edit]

history of Talk:Abd

IP revert warring with me on my talk page. Please restore semiprotection, this is the Return of the Same Old Same Old. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 02:19, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

The IP was from Singapore, properly was I live in singapore. SA 13 Bro (talk) 02:22, 2 December 2017 (UTC)
Hmmm... I live in singapore (no edits so far) registered 01:43, 2 December 2017. First edit here of that IP is 01:56, 2 December 2017. I'd say probable. But the IP, though in Singapore, is an open proxy and the real user, from what I know, lives in England. That's not important here, the request is simply for semiprotection. I have already requested a global block for this IP. The local revert warring on two pages (my Talk page and this page) and with two registered users should be enough for a block here. --Abd (talk) 03:24, 2 December 2017 (UTC)
I've blocked the IP address. If they continue, I'll semi-protect your talk page. Matiia (talk) 03:32, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Request for MassMessage sender's flag[edit]

Hi. I first wrote about this on Talk:MassMessage, but then I was tipped that maybe here is the right place to ask. May I please ask for MassMessage sender's right, needed for the delivery of the CEE Newsletter once a month (usually the first day of the month). Currently the list of subscribers is small enough, but this may also be due to the fact that the problem with the automated delivery has not been yet solved. I am aware how to use the tool, as I have used it as administrator both on Bulgarian Wikipedia and on Commons. And if this is (once again) not the right place to ask for this user right, I welcome any advice where is more appropriate to addess it. :) Spiritia 21:42, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Done. – Ajraddatz (talk) 21:46, 2 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! :) Spiritia 22:11, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Request for patroller permission[edit]

Since it's becoming clear that I have to deal with vandalism here from time to time, I would like to request the patroller permission so I can revert edits quickly. Thanks in advance. -★- PlyrStar93. Message me. 01:50, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Request for closure[edit]

Would a sysop or bureaucrat assess the consensus at Requests_for_comment/Interlinking_of_accounts_involved_with_paid_editing_to_decrease_impersonation? The RFC has been open for almost 3 months. The closure was previously requested in October. Rentier (talk) 15:13, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

This RfC is cross-wiki, rather than Meta-specific. So probably any request for closure should go to the stewards (SRM). StevenJ81 (talk) 17:16, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I posted the request at SRM. Rentier (talk) 00:12, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
