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.

Request MassMessage sender rightsEdit

I'm chair of the Wikimedia and Libraries User Group Steering Committee and I want to send our 380+ members. --Windblown29 (talk) 15:48, 28 April 2022 (UTC)

@Windblown29 Hello, can I have a sample MMS mailing list and an example message you are going to send. In addition, how long will you need the privs for. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:34, 30 April 2022 (UTC)
@Windblown29 One more ping. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:30, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

Request for page protectionEdit

Hi!

I would like to request that all of the pages in this category be protected to allow edits only by registered users. Thank you! MNadzikiewicz (WMF) (talk)

I don't see any vandalism on any of them. --MF-W 11:31, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg, we would like to have them protected just in case. Given that they are devoted to the Board of Trustees elections, no content from non-registered users is expected. MNadzikiewicz (WMF) (talk) 12:14, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
Those are not valid reasons - according to Semi-protection, semi-protection is neither "to prohibit anonymous editing in general" nor "for preemptive protection of articles that might get vandalized". --MF-W 13:21, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg, please see this page. MNadzikiewicz (WMF) (talk) 06:34, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
  Done Semiprotected that one (for a month). Martin Urbanec (talk) 06:36, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

Just 1 edit, I will think we just leave it alone. Anyway too stale to block a single IPV6, they most likely moved on. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:46, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
