Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat

(Redirected from RFH)
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.

@DefenderTienMinh07: What makes you think this account as a spambot? Upon check, no results on filter log & zero edit. Tulsi 24x7 08:31, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No hits on spamblacklist either. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:30, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

MassMessage for Pyb en résidenceEdit


I would like to have massmessage right to send out a newsletter about French universities, delivered to talk pages. We only send the newsletter, to people on a list created on Meta. It's part of my work as a wikimedian in residence. The draft for March is available on the French Wikipedia. Pyb en résidence (talk) 08:58, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Pyb en résidence please point to your delivery target list. — xaosflux Talk 09:06, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Xaosflux the target list will be on this page: WikiESR. Pyb en résidence (talk) 10:12, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Pyb en résidence is this only from and for people on the French Wikipedia? — xaosflux Talk 14:29, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Xaosflux The newsletter will be in French, but universities are doing stuff on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata, so I believe that those 3 communities might be interested by this newsletter. That is why I've put the target list on meta. Pyb en résidence (talk) 14:36, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Granted on the basis that user is trusted and is sysop on large wiki i.e., Commons. @Pyb en résidence: Please let us know when you don't need it. Kind regards, Tulsi 24x7 02:31, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unjustified blocking in Wiktionary from the admin User:Vininn126Edit

Hi. I was blocked for 30 days. I think this admin behaves with partiality and blocks without reason. I made only 1 one edit cancellation out of 2 possible ones. Please help me. Gnosandes (talk) 19:44, 31 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is nothing the meta-wiki admins can do about blocks on that project, see this page for information on blocks there. — xaosflux Talk 22:09, 31 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
