Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat

Latest comment: 9 hours ago by Minorax in topic Report concerning User:
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. It is only for assistance required at Meta-Wiki, help for other wikis needs to be requested at those wikis.

Report concerning Requests for comment/Violating the Neutral point of view in Arabic Wiki ‎ edit

Hello, sysops, discussion on this page went rogue. I'm pinged and found it has become a battlefield for legal threats or POV-Pushing. Can someone put a break to that? Lemonaka (talk) 05:35, 26 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  On hold, waiting for a second opinion from another sysop/bureaucrat: the active block on commons IMHO might not be considered as disruption.
@Giseletuy Still, I'd like a word from the volunteer confirming that licensing problems have been understood and that no further account clones will be created. Thanks, --M/ (talk) 07:39, 27 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Per Meta:Event Organizers the requirement is „no active blocks on the wiki on which you are applying for the right“, doesn't say anything about blocks on other projects. I hope that Giseletuy has learned from past mistakes [1] and won't set a bad example for other event participants. Johannnes89 (talk) 15:34, 27 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
