I'm having a problem on the Atrocious YouTubers Wiki. For whatever reason, I can't make pages or post comments, because it's restricted to autoconfirmed users, bureaucrats, confirmed users and administrators. I have no idea how to become a confirmed user. I'd like someone to contact the wiki's admins so they can get things sorted out.

Please add an editnotice for this noticeboard

So all noticeboards will be the same InspecterAbdel (talk) 15:02, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

And please remove that Meta: in the name, it got reverted — Preceding unsigned comment added by InspecterAbdel (talkcontribs) 15:05, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

We can look at an edit notice but it is specifically in the meta namespace because this is a noticeboard for things involving meta admins. It is meta specific unlike the other two. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 15:07, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I wonder if @InspecterAbdel: means the generic edit notice related to signing one's posts? If that's the case, I'd Symbol support vote.svg Support adding that to this noticeboard as well. It's useful and possibly modestly effective. Dmehus (talk) 16:32, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: Yes, I was talking about that one InspecterAbdel (talk) 16:55, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@InspecterAbdel: Okay, thanks for clarifying. Also, thanks for signing your posts. You are quite active on Meta, so I want to nominate you for autopatrolled so your edits don't need patrolling, but am waiting until I see seven days' worth of posts that don't require {{unsigned}} to be added. I am definitely seeing improvement, though, so keep up the good work. Dmehus (talk) 16:58, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: Question: Will there be a feature where signatures are automatically signed? InspecterAbdel (talk) 17:02, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@InspecterAbdel: DiscussionTools should help in this regard (when MediaWiki version 1.35 rolls out more broadly and to Miraheze), as it's similar in that way to Structured Discussions (formerly known as Flow). Flow has some issues, but I personally prefer it on other wikis where I am a bureaucrat. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 17:06, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: Also, I think there should be an editnotice for RfC's and Requests for adoption InspecterAbdel (talk) 17:23, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@InspecterAbdel: Oh, if it's not there already, yeah, I'd support adding that there as well. That's technically a global page, but since this is just adding an edit notice, any Meta administrator can probably add it (if not, they'll have a Meta administrator who is also a Global Sysop or a steward do it). Dmehus (talk) 17:25, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I don't se any problems so Yes check.svg created at MediaWiki:Editnotice-4-Administrators' noticeboard.--MrJaroslavik (talk) 19:04, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@MrJaroslavik:, thanks. Can you also check Requests for adoption and see if that edit notice is there, too, and, if not, add it? Dmehus (talk) 19:52, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

User:SolidBlock - Request for autopatrolled

I'd like to request that SolidBlock, with 255 edits on Meta and more than 1,200 global edits spanning over three and a half years, be granted autopatrolled by any administrator. Looked briefly through the past ten discussion contributions on Meta, spanning nearly two years, and noted no unsigned, missed signatures. User clearly knows Meta's scope, so I have no concerns. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 04:17, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done by @MrJaroslavik: per this request on Meta:Administrators' noticeboard, and per no apparent need to patrol. Dmehus (talk) 21:05, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

User:Colby Russell - Request for autopatrolled and confirmed

I'd like to request for any administrator to please grant Colby Russell autopatrolled indefinitely and, on a temporary basis of between 3-12 months confirmed user status, so the user can edit semi-protected pages. In my discussions with Colby on various talk pages on Meta, it's clear to me that the two most important criteria for these user group rights, that the user (a) remembers to sign and date their discussion contributions and (b) knows the scope and purpose of Meta are met. As well, the user is a bureaucrat and administrator on the Triple Scripts Wiki, where he has already made nearly 300 edits. Further, the user is active on the Wikimedia wikis, especially MediaWiki. Together with the user's status as a developer, I am very confident in the user's abilities, and would've requested these user group rights sooner, but wanted to wait at least thirty days. My reason for requesting confirmed temporarily is because it is a duplication of autoconfirmed, so once the user is autopromoted to that group, it won't be required. Looking at Special:ListUsers/confirmed, we do have a few confirmed users on Meta who are active on other Miraheze-hosted wikis, so there's definitely precedent for this, and this is such a strong use case. Dmehus (talk) 17:25, 30 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done for autopatrolled / X mark.svg Not done for confirmed - already is autoconfirmed user.--MrJaroslavik (talk) 18:23, 30 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@MrJaroslavik: That's great, thanks. At the time I submitted this request, the user wasn't yet autoconfirmed, but I did suggest to the user to make only six more edits on Meta to be autopromoted (at Talk:Custom domains), so it seems that's what he did. Nonetheless, thanks again. Dmehus (talk) 18:32, 30 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Wikipedia indefinitely semi-protected pages - Request for history merge to Category:Indefinitely semi-protected pages and delete

Could any administrator kindly perform a history merge of Category:Wikipedia indefinitely semi-protected pages to Category:Indefinitely semi-protected pages, the latter of which had already existed but as an empty category with no history. Now that I have corrected Module:Protection banner/config used by {{pp-template}}, there is such a strong use case to history merge in my revision(s) from the former into the latter, after which the former can be swiftly deleted. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 19:31, 30 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

When will extension Score be working again?

It has been a while that I get an error message, in my wiki in German: LilyPond konnte nicht ausgeführt werden: /dev/null ist eine nicht ausführbare Datei. Es muss sichergestellt sein, dass $wgScoreLilyPond in der Konfigurationsdatei richtig eingestellt wurde. Will the extension Score ever work again? Lily (Lilypond Wiki talk and I will listen) 05:10, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

We were made aware of a security issue so we switched it off. As soon as they fixed that, they found another. Sorry, ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 05:13, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Ok thanks for the info, Lily (Lilypond Wiki · talk and I will listen · my little garden ) 08:38, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

User:InspecterAbdel - Request for autopatrolled

InspecterAbdel has more than 100 edits on Meta, which, in and of itself, is not necessarily enough for autopatrolled; however, the user is helpful on the noticeboards, has demonstrated they know Meta's scope and limitations, and understands the purpose of each noticeboard. My only concern was the user's forgetting to sign their posts, with my having to add {{unsigned}} as recently as a week ago. However, separately, I had the user really make a concerted effort over the past week, and agreed to nominate them for autopatrolled on 1 August 2020 when I was satisfied that the improvement had been met. I'm now satisfied, particularly with the user also adding {{unsigned}} signatures correctly to other users' posts, and because I haven't had to add {{unsigned}} to the user's signatures for (roughly) the past week. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 18:42, 1 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Oh, thank you for requesting this! I appreciate it a lot! InspecterAbdel (talk) 18:57, 1 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
