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.

LTA spamming talk pagesEdit

An LTA using open proxies is spamming User talk:Katherine (WMF) and User talk:Ryan.merkley (diffs [1] [2]. Would it be possible to protect these talk pages? DraconicDark (talk) 02:44, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

Protected one, and modified abuse filters for the other. Thanks for the note.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:03, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

[FYI Admins] semi-protected Jimbo's talk pageEdit

Jimbo's talk page is now just a target for abuse for anything but real accounts. As we all have better things to do than sit around and let an LTA get his jollies, and others having to react. Jimbo doesn't answer there, and one suspects he never visits, but irrespective of that, it comes to managing this wiki appropriately and equitably. Implemented semi-protection.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:53, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protection for Bridges across CulturesEdit

Hi! Is it possible to protect Bridges across Cultures pages and other pages related to the contest. In the past days, the main page has been vandalized several times. --Osmar Valdebenito, B1mbo (talk) 16:47, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

  Done for main page,   Not done for others (not vandalized enough (yet?)) --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:51, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

Getting an anti-spam block for a simple grammatical correctionEdit

When submitting a simple grammatical correction (correcting plurality in a sentence) on the Medium-Term Plan page, I'm getting an antispam flag. Please advise. --Kohl Gill (talk) 19:46, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

You should be able to save now. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:48, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
Yep, resolved! Thanks. --Kohl Gill (talk) 19:50, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
