Batch user page deletion request

Hi, I'd like to have my user pages on several WMF wikis deleted and didn't know where to request this without doing this separately for every one of them, and this is the only page I found. The list would be:

Local sysops have been inactive for more than three months. Perhaps need a GS to handle. --Sotiale (talk) 05:10, 25 December 2019 (UTC)

Thanks our competent GSes, WhitePhosphorus and WikiBayer, BRPever. There is a lot of work, so it seems to take time for done marking :) Please do it slowly. --Sotiale (talk) 13:17, 25 December 2019 (UTC)
if except for pages that are not translated have been processed, I think it is a good idea to have a local administrator review the rest. Thanks to everyone involved. --Sotiale (talk) 02:57, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
Now there are 15+3 pages left. I'm fine with the remaining but would like to see if someone want to do more before closing :) --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 03:26, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
I have deleted another page, the remaining delete requests should process local sysops that speak the language--𐐎ℹ𝕜ⅈ𝕭𝒂𝕪ⅇ𝕣 👤💬 09:07, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

Please could someone be so kind to lock 1 page I just have archived. This page was originally part of the local 'village pump' page. Previous archives have already been locked. The page requested to lock is:

Closing discussion on ro.wp

Status:    Not done

Since we have no bureaucrats, I would like to request the help of a steward who is willing to read through 2 discussions @ ro.wp and decide if consensus has been reached in either of them:

Please comment directly in the respective sections, so the community can see the conclusion.Thank you! --Strainu (talk) 21:11, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

  Not done, Strainu, closing local discussions is not what stewards are for, sorry. Stewards act upon local community consensus, not define what that consensus is. While you do not have local bureaucrats you can find an uninvolved administrator or even a trusted non-administrator from the local community to do the job. --Base (talk) 22:52, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately, local closure is not going to happen. Such important decisions will be contested if done by a sysop. I understand that this is not what stewards are normally for, but I was hoping that one of you could act as a trusted, independent party that could play the role of a bureaucrat.--Strainu (talk) 23:01, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
I see this as a request for an opinion from stewards on whether a consensus has been reached, and the community is asking a steward to put on that independent 'crat hat. Seems that an opinion from an outside, considered party can add value. If it is guiding to a community, rather than determinative, that sounds reasonable to me. @Strainu: Might be worthwhile having this request seconded by another admin or any existing 'crat at roWP.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:04, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
There is no bureaucrat active at ro.wp. I have asked for another sysop to support this request.--Strainu (talk) 14:11, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
What Strainu says is true, our community is small and any decision taken by any administrator would be contested, that's why our local Wiki bureaucrats had to resign in the first place. There are some people that will oppose any admin decision, so that's why we really need the help for these discussions. The first case is one of the few where broad consensus has been achieved, but any other admin is afraid to close them to avoid starting long time-consuming discussions (and the ostracization for the admin who close it) that would deviate from the matters proposed.Ionutzmovie (talk) 14:17, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
This page is for Wikimedia wikis having no active administrators., and this page is generally for uncontroversial or consensus-already-acquired requests. Closing. If you insist on this, SN is the right venue. — regards, Revi 13:03, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

RfC about Croatian Wikipedia

Status:    Not done

Can you comment on this? Requests for comment/Site-wide administrator abuse and WP:PILLARS violations on the Croatian Wikipedia. It seems this issue, involving the three accused admins at Croatian Wikipedia, has been going on for years now, and your reviews and opinions are necessary.--3E1I5S8B9RF7 (talk) 17:59, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

Editors will comment on that if they want to. There is little benefit in a request here; I'm sure most global sysops and stewards are aware of the RfC. Vermont (talk) 14:59, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

Interface-admin permission Copy code into Common.css & Common.js @ nv

Status:    Done

Iʼd like to restore the collapse-buttons for nv (they somehow got lost along the way...). Please make me an Interface-admin for an hour or so and ping me (see nv:Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556/common.js and nv:Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556/common.css for what I want to do). Thanks. --Seb az86556 (talk) 00:55, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

@Seb az86556: Stewards may not approve your request if you don't place it on the correct page. Esteban16 (talk) 01:34, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
@Esteban16: Hm. That page says "If you need to accomplish one-time, non-recurring task..." and then sends me here. Seb az86556 (talk) 01:45, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
Sorry. That's why I said "may", I wasn't completely sure. Esteban16 (talk) 01:48, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
Nono, thank you for pointing that out. I'm just kinda confused. What would you do? Seb az86556 (talk) 01:50, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
@Seb az86556: We have both misunderstood the instructions :P. "If you need to accomplish one-time..." means to request your task here, not the flag, and you already did. But those are your own CSS and JS files, so you should be able to edit them. Esteban16 (talk) 02:33, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
I know. I want whatʼs in my css/js to be copied into the common.css/js... I donʼt care if I do it or someone else...

So therefore... I've prepared the the complete code, each one can just be copy-pasted to overwrite common.css/js, idiot-proof. Collapse-buttons exist on all other wikis and are totally uncontroversial. Is there a steward willing to do that? Seb az86556 (talk) 02:52, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

  Done Esteban16 (talk) 03:04, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
@Esteban16: Thanks. Why can you do that and I canʼt? Do global sysops have interface-permission? Seb az86556 (talk) 03:14, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
Yes, we do. --Esteban16 (talk) 03:17, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

Dear All,
Could someone please change 'Wiktionary:Main_Page' into 'Wikiwurdboek:Haadside' on this page:

Hopefully the code still works. Thank you very much in advance! --PiefPafPier (talk) 09:01, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

I've done the edit, but you still need to add __NOTOC__ on main page to hide the first heading. It is not protected yet so you can do it by yourself. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 09:19, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you @WhitePhosphorus, but I still see the title heading. I'll try to dig into it later. --PiefPafPier (talk) 09:44, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
Sorry it was my fault. the NOTOC magic is to remove the table of contents. I've updated MediaWiki:Common.css so it should looks fine now. (purge your cache if not so) --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 09:58, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
