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 User:Guidoguido'sEdit

Guidoguido's (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log • GUC • CA)Reasons: user:Guidoguido's is a confirmed sockpuppet of the SEO spammers we blocked in relation to the online casinos spamming incident. Now he wants to get one of the spammed addresses removed from the global SBL. Count Count (talk) 12:56, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

AF147Edit

Please add "支持" to the matching regex of Special:AbuseFilter/147, thanks. Stang 13:11, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

@Stang Done. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:51, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Global rename blacklistEdit

I found that users with rollback right (patrollers and global rollbackers) may rollback an edit on this page. Although the issue seems to be minimal, the page may be fully protected or a new protection level may be introduced to protect the page.--GZWDer (talk) 14:28, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

I should not be editable by non-sysops or non-global renamers per Special:AbuseFilter/293. Maybe rollback is not parsed as action=edit for abusefilter, and therefore gets ignored? —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:33, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
See phab:T262157. GZWDer (talk) 14:34, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
I'm not sure how to fix this then. We'd like that page to be editable by admins, stewards and global renamers. Introducing a new protection level for just one page seems overkill to me. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:37, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
I don't see it needs "fixing" on-wiki for this edge case - T262157 can address eventually. If rollbackers start abusing this we can just revoke their access or block them. It still stops them from "editing" it normally. — xaosflux Talk 14:52, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
Yeah, per Xaosflux, we can remove the GR or patroller right if it is abused in this way. I don't see a need to change the protection as the issue is limited in scope. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:52, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Report concerning User:5.150.99.73Edit

5.150.99.73 (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log • GUC • CA)Reasons: LTA harassment. See also block log. SCP-2000 23:12, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Common.js#L-423Edit

Can someone please make this script a gadget and turn it on by default so as to give users like me a chance to turn it off via Special:Preferences? It seems to be incompatible with QuickEdit. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 03:15, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

  • @Base: you added this in 2016; think it is still useful, else can just be removed. (I'm pretty sure I've never used that button :) )— xaosflux Talk 16:45, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
    Yeah I think turning it into a gadget is a good idea regardless. I will be able to do it either in a few hours today, or tomorrow evening, if someone has time earlier please feel free to do so. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Base (talk) 16:58, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
      Support Default gadgets is always a better way than imposing through common.js  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:27, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
