Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat

Shortcut:
WM:RFH
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 Requests for comment/Violating the Neutral point of view in Arabic Wiki ‎ edit

Hello, sysops, discussion on this page went rogue. I'm pinged and found it has become a battlefield for legal threats or POV-Pushing. Can someone put a break to that? Lemonaka (talk) 05:35, 26 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for Organizer Rights: [Giseletuy] edit

Username: [Giseletuy :]

Reason for Request: [to have the rights in order to organize the event: Mois de la contribution de la francophone.]

Criteria Met:

  • active blocks: [ Wiki commons ]
  • Global edits: [ 599 edits]
  • Additional Criteria: [ affiliate to Wikipedia Community User Group Rwanda ]

Additional Information: None Giseletuy (talk) 07:18, 27 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  On hold, waiting for a second opinion from another sysop/bureaucrat: the active block on commons IMHO might not be considered as disruption.
@Giseletuy Still, I'd like a word from the volunteer confirming that licensing problems have been understood and that no further account clones will be created. Thanks, --M/ (talk) 07:39, 27 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Per Meta:Event Organizers the requirement is „no active blocks on the wiki on which you are applying for the right“, doesn't say anything about blocks on other projects. I hope that Giseletuy has learned from past mistakes [1] and won't set a bad example for other event participants. Johannnes89 (talk) 15:34, 27 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The edit count is quite low, but as this is just one of the possible additional criteria per Meta:Event Organizers and they plan to organize Wikimedia events, I think this should be granted? Johannnes89 (talk) 07:56, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Tending to support this request. This right requires more than 300 global, still I see good effort and a complete user page. --M/ (talk) 08:00, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The requestor is also a Wikimedia affiliate staff member, so I think this application would meet the requirements. Syunsyunminmin 🗨️talk 10:35, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
