I know that this SRCU-request might seem a bit odd, since the accounts already got blocked and it indeed looks like a WP:DUCK. However, the Croatian and Serbian Wikipedias already had to deal with such trolls that created accounts with insulting or provocating texts in Serbian-Cyrillic and Latin. I am kindly asking you to approve this request. We (or I) want to know if we are having to deal with the same troll or maybe with a group of people. Please also check if the data of those SPA-trolls is related to any others. Best regards, Vs6507 05:21, 1 August 2022 (UTC)

The community vote of this year's Board Elections are close. As always voter mails will be sent out. To invite as many community members as possible in their native tongue your help is very much appreciated. While there are already plenty of translations we would appreciate you to check for languages still missing and to contribute translations for these.
The mails are short, just a bit about two times 200 words, a few minutes of work.
Your support is very important as it helps communities to learn about the election and to cast their vote.
Best, Denis Barthel (WMF)(Movement Strategy and Governance)

Can I reopen this case once I get a Wikimedia account? I’m saying this because several times I make a my accounts get copyright striked as a sockpuppet of MegaMack02, which is not true. 188.8.131.52 16:11, 10 August 2022 (UTC)
Lingua Libre Bot toward global bot status
Hello MarcoAurelio, First, thank you for your mentoring and for approving Lingua_Libre_Bot@oc.wiktionary and granting this additional bot status. This is our 5th bot status. Also, we are interested to get the global bot status, which would simplify our administrative workload. Global bot status would allow us to focus on the most fruitful parts of
- build local community concensus support
get local bot status
- localize bot's code.
Also, I could use your experience and help. Could you tell us what are the weak points of our bot ? From what I see, we have 5 bot status, but one of them is not active (ku:wikt). Would that be a blocking issue ? Are there pitfalls to know ?

- Hello @Yug: Historically getting global bot status has been hard and required a number of bot flags at several local projects to demonstrate that the bot was useful and trusted. While I don't doubt that Lingua Libre Bot is useful for the communities that requested it I am not familiar with the bot to assess which are its weak points, but maybe the number of projects in which the bot is active on might not be enough for the community to grant global bot status at this stage. I can't tell for sure though. If you're interested in getting global bot status, because it'll be useful for you, my advice would be to request it and see which feedback you receive from the community :-) Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:59, 18 August 2022 (UTC)
Name changing request
- Hello @א.ס. כהן - Thanks for reaching out, but there's no need to message individual global renamers/stewards about it. Your request will be actioned in due time when someone sees it. Thanks for your understanding. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:40, 22 August 2022 (UTC)
