Hi, How can a open a new request for comment?علی مکریانی (talk) 07:36, 4 September 2020 (UTC)Reply

@علی مکریانی: You have to create a sub-page of Requests for comment, like [[Requests for comment/EXAMPLETITLE]]. You also need to ensure you add Template:Rfc subpage to the top. You have enough edits to start one. --IWI (talk) 07:42, 4 September 2020 (UTC)Reply

Tagging locked global account


Hello IWI, per practice here it is not to tag unless a steward tag those pages, there is no need per DENY and etc. Hope you understand where I am coming from. Early on I also tag for such users but was adviced not too, it's a common issues with users. We had some discussion on the meta noticeboards and it was decided not to tag. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:31, 13 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

@Camouflaged Mirage: Yes I understand. Sorry about that and thanks for letting me know. --IWI (talk) 08:48, 13 November 2020 (UTC)Reply
It's okay. The only ones that are ok to tag are foundation banned users (Office actions) - on the main account only as well as those community banned users (main account) where a link to the community ban discussion will be very helpful for future review. Thanks. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:46, 13 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

Hi Its me, TTP1233, could you please explain how it works?TTP1233 (talk) 08:43, 20 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

@TTP1233: I do not understand; explain how what works? --IWI (talk) 08:45, 20 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
Explain how this metawiki works and what contributions I can make here? TTP1233 (talk) 08:47, 20 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
@TTP1233: Metawiki is just a place where all communities can coordinate. It's not really a place to contribute to. There are places like SRG where you can ask for stewards to global lock/block accounts/IPs that are abusing many wikis. --IWI (talk) 08:52, 20 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Steward confirmations


Hello. I am aware that I absolutely cannot !vote in the Steward elections. Can I !vote in the Steward confirmations? Are there any eligibility requirements for those? Thanks, Belwine💬📜 18:05, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Belwine: Since the confirmations aren't a vote, the only requirements are "an account that has edits (on any wiki) before 05 February", which I'm pretty sure your account does. --IWI (talk) 18:08, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply
Ok, thanks. —Belwine💬📜 18:09, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply

Your script


Hi IWI. Note that your script needs an update as

  • BRPever is now a global sysop
  • Krd is no longer a steward
  • NahidSultan is now a global sysop
  • Rxy is no longer a steward

Thanks, --Belwine (talk) 17:30, 7 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Belwine: Indeed, thanks for reminding me. I will have to update, also for the elections too. Best, --IWI (talk) 17:31, 7 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
Oh, and on the global sysop one.. CptViraj and Savh are now global sysops. Thanks, --Belwine (talk) 17:15, 10 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
I intended to do this later but completely forgot, lol. Let me do this now.. --IWI (talk) 18:20, 10 March 2021 (UTC)Reply



Have you considered changing your signature on meta? TWGlobal automatically puts -- before your signature, and so your signature on steward requests looks a little strange. --Belwine (talk) 20:56, 6 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Belwine: Indeed that does look a bit strange. I have removed the "--" here on meta. Thanks, IWI (talk) 13:51, 8 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

Invitation for Functionary consultation 2021


Greetings SWMT member,

I'm letting you know in advance about a meeting I'd like to invite you to regarding the Universal Code of Conduct and the community's ownership of its future enforcement. I'm still in the process of putting together the details, but I wanted to share the date with you: 10 July, 2021. I do not have a time on this date yet, but I will let you soon. We have created a meta page with basic information. Please take a look at the meta page and sign up your name under the appropriate section.

Thank you for your time.--BAnand (WMF) 03:21, 3 June 2021 (UTC)Reply



I think simple:Ima Keithel has no issues now. The sentences are too much simple enough that I think they can't be simplified further. Please remove the issue templates after having a review. Haoreima (talk) 11:47, 6 October 2021 (UTC)Reply
