Requests and proposals Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat (at Meta-Wiki only) Archives (current)→
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.

Interface admin for MinoraxEdit

Hello. I'd like to request for IA rights to edit pages such as MediaWiki:HideButtonsFromNonGsProjects.js & MediaWiki:Gadget-markAdmins-data.js. As a GS, I already have 2FA enabled. --Minoraxtalk 23:34, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

@Minorax: the request page for this is over here: Meta:Requests_for_adminship#Requests_for_interface_adminship; optionally you can just drop edit requests on those, they get processed quickly. — xaosflux Talk 14:44, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: As per Meta:Interface_administrators#Requesting_interface_adminship, an admin can request for IA here. --Minoraxtalk 14:46, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
@Minorax: Ooops, sorry forgot we changed that since it is pretty much shall-issue! A 'crat will come along and deal with this. — xaosflux Talk 19:01, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
I believe that this is on hold due to phab:T282624? --Minoraxtalk 11:00, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
I do not think so.   Done --MF-W 11:24, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

MassMessage rights requestEdit

I am the Secretary of the Affiliations Committee and we are preparing for the first of our new member elections of 2021. We need to post announcements to all Affiliates about this election and invite interested parties to consider serving on AffCom. There are other needs that arise for communicating across all Affiliates, and we need the internal capacity to send Mass Messages to Affiliate discussion pages do this. Can I please be granted these rights? Thank you. FULBERT (talk) 14:00, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

  Granted to expire on 1 January 2023 as your term ends on that date. -- CptViraj (talk) 14:13, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
CptViraj Thank you. --- FULBERT (talk) 00:28, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
I had also reinstated autopatrol for them, hope @CptViraj is okay with it. It seemed that they are a competent user which doesn't need patrolling, so I see that even when the MMS is expired, they can still be autopatrolled. Feel free to reverse if you see something else I don't see now, apologies in advance. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:46, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
I did remove it because MMS is set to expire after 1.5 years, it's a long time, so I thought instead of keeping redundant right for that long, we can just simply re-grant it after the MMS expires. But it's fine, there is no harm, we remove redundant rights just for clear stats, no big deal. -- CptViraj (talk) 16:30, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
