Patroller/Autopatroller for Masumrezarock100

I just started SWMT the day before yesterday. Meta-wiki doesn't get a lot of vandalism (or at least I didn't saw many vandalism edits in SWViewer). But I saw a spammer's userpage on meta but I could not tag it for deletion because of the abuse filter. Autopatroller would be sufficient in this case to override the abuse filter but Cptviraj told me patroller group includes rollback right. So I am asking here. Masum Reza 10:31, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

RfC disrupted by sockpuppetry

The discussion at Requests for comment/Site-wide administrator abuse and WP:PILLARS violations on the Croatian Wikipedia has been disrupted by IP addresses and sockpuppets who keep making unintelligible personal attacks against other users (examples [3] [4] [5]). This has apparently been happening on other wikis as well (example [6], and seems to be the work of a single, globally banned user (see here). Can anything be done about this?

multilingual wikisource

hi, sorry to bother you,

there seem to have been quite a few changes in the last few days in the page editor of the multilingual wikisource

now when i try to transcribe a page, the picture of the page is not anymore side by side with the text box, but it lies below, which is not very convenient

is there any work in progress or is it going to stay that way? would it be possible to make it again the way it was before?

thanks!

Request autopatrol permission

Hello, I wanted to create a User page with the template {{Deceased}} but I ran into filter 161, as told me on #wikimedia-stewards. I am active editor on the German Wikipedia and not very often on Meta. Nevertheless I want to request the permission autopatrol that I do not need to ask you in special cases. I'll not save something when I am not sure what I am doing. Regards the yummy --Keks by 18:38, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

  Not done @Der Keks: The filter only inhibits the editing of another person's user page, so it is just as easy to use {{edit protected}} on the user talk page or ask here for the addition. That user's page does not exist, so I don't believe that we should create such a page just to add that template alone if the user didn't do it during their life.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:33, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Requesting Patroller right

An active user in English Wikipedia. I'd like to patrol new pages in meta wiki and would like to rollback vandalism I come across. I've patroller and rollbacker rights on enwiki. I'd like to extend this work in here also. Thank you.--Path slopu (talk) 15:49, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

  •   Strong oppose - This user made only one undo of edit made by an IP here. Also he asked rollback on simplewiki a few days ago, and that request was declined because he had never made any undo on that project. Also on Commons he asked for other rights, all of the requests were declined. He said Sir, I didn't undo any vandalism, because I haven't the rollbacker right. It seems he is a cross-wiki hat collecter. I can only repeat Vermont's suggestion on simplewiki. Masum Reza 16:20, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
Also see [10]. It is quite clear to me that he is asking rights without even knowing what they are for. He asked rollbacker on test-wiki for testing Huggle. But he never really used it! Masum Reza 18:54, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

  Not done This is meta, and quite different from the Wikipedias. This seems premature, and if you have edited and reverted and we can reconsider this in a few months.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:38, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

Suggestions for page protection

I suggest that page protection be applied to User:Wikimedia Stewards and User talk:Wikimedia Stewards so that only Meta administrators can edit those pages. ↠Pine () 06:57, 23 November 2019 (UTC)

It doesn't seem to be needed, it has not had a single vandalism since it was created more than 4 years ago. Matiia (talk) 22:57, 23 November 2019 (UTC)

Mass message rights

Hello, I work for Wikimedia France on the project Lingua Libre with a diverse community of contributors, not yet consistently connected. I would need mass message rights to be able to reach out to them comprehensively. Please let me know if you can do something for me, Eavqwiki 10:10, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

@Eavqwiki: No doubt, you're trusted, but would you mind to assure us that you can handle massmessage tool smoothly? Did you read MassMessage and follow the associated docs link properly? Can you show us some example by preparing list to whom you will send message? Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 12:33, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
@Tulsi Bhagat: Hello, I created this list using the template provided, is it once I have mass message rights that I can change the title and move it to the subpage? Thanks, Eavqwiki 14:45, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
@Eavqwiki: If this is on behalf of Wikimedia France, someone fro the body to support the need would be useful, otherwise we are solely having to judge this on your editing and your needs, rather than on behalf of the organisation for whom you work.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:40, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Okay, thank you, I will see that with Wikimedia France. Eavqwiki 09:56, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

Graduate project needs admins to interview

Hey everyone. I'm sending this message out because a graduate student at De Haagse Hogeschool reached out on WP:Discord. Kasparas Litinskas is doing his graduate project on user engagement in large crowdsourced communities. It's part of a larger initiative to study and develop a data-structured language framework. As part of the project, he is conducting short interviews to understand the ways that administrators on Wikimedia sites operate and how they handle certain critical situations as well as the tools they use to tackle these problems.
If you are interested, please email him at kasparas.litinskas gmail.com.
Cheers! –MJLTalk 23:14, 27 November 2019 (UTC)


Request of patroller right for Zoranzoki21

Hi, I am Zoran. I am active user, sysop on Serbian projects. I would like to request patroller right to help with patrolling and reverting clear vandalisms. Best regards, Zoranzoki21 (talk) 00:10, 24 November 2019 (UTC).

Hello. I'd recommend to be more active reverting edits here before getting patroller access, as I don't see any undo in your last 500 edits. Matiia (talk) 21:25, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
Ok, sure, I understand. But I staying at the question from IRC about double standards. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 01:28, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
What double standard would that be? Vermont (talk) 02:41, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
Agree with Vermont's comment. This right has typically been applied retroactively to those who have demonstrated the need, per the RFC that implemented the group. Meta is a different beast to the wikipedias.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:23, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
How on example Friedrick demonstraded the need? And Novak (oh yes, it is second account of same user)? Zoranzoki21 (talk) 19:38, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
Oy. Look at Novak Watchmen's edits. He came to me during a time when there was vandalism and asked for the patroller right to help with it; he had reverted a few edits already. I did so, and he's used it well since. I gave it to his other account as it's the same person. If you'd like to question my granting of the patroller right to him, please feel free to do so at my talk page where I can address your concerns more directly. Best regards, Vermont (talk) 23:16, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
@Zoranzoki21: You can listen to experienced editors/administrators or not, that is your choice. However, complaining and trying to run comparisons is rather immature, and the least likely means to get me to have a change of heart. In the wiki space like meta, it is usually a case of demonstrate your worth and your competency.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:07, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
