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.

Autopatroller for Jonathan5566

Hi, I have do some translation from en to zh, I will like to request for autopatroller flag, thanks. Jonathan5566 (talk) 10:06, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

It would not be typical for us to grant autopatrol rights to a user like this due to how we utilise autopatrol here.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:40, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Merge User:Amitie 10g/Davod into User:Davod

Please merge the contents (and history) of User:Amitie 10g/Davod into User:Davod, as I'm unable to edit my doppelganger user page. Also, is possible to able me to edit my doppelganger user page? Thanks. Amitie 10g (talk) 03:11, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Overwritten and then undeleted (merged); not unless you login.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:37, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Unblocking our treasurer's IPs

Our treasurer, Claudi Balaguer (user: Capsot) has previously sent two messages to Nemo bis asking for his IPs to be unblocked so he can work on the reports. As president of Amical Wikimedia, I ask you to kindly unblock his IPs, as he is the Treasurer of Amical Wikimedia. Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much in advance.--Medol (talk) 19:26, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

@Medol @Capsot Hello, as far as I can see, Capsot was directly blocked (the request suggests it's a case of collateral damage). I think the regular appeal procedure should be used – via {{unblock}} template on their personal talk page. Then the administrators can assess and decide on the appeal.
Thanks for your understanding, Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:43, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

Protection of Alternative paid contribution disclosure policies

I'm not sure where to bring this up, but I was wondering if a sysop could protect this page. It's mentioned in the Terms of Use that "An alternative paid contribution policy will only supersede these requirements if it is approved by the relevant Project community and listed in the alternative disclosure policy page." Hypothetically, anyone could alter the page right and remove alternative disclosure policies (or add them) which could result in legal ramifications. This is probably a thing which we want to avoid happening, so it would seem reasonable to fully protect the page so that any changes would have to go through some kind of review.
