Add Link to AN or TA Info Page to MediaWiki:Translate-tag-hasnew

That will be helpful for those who do not know whom to contact to get the page marked for translation. You may wish to see Wikidata's method for inspiration. Thank you. R4356th 3,443 Local Contributions Logged Actions CentralAuth (talk) 15:30, 7 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

This seems reasonable, so has now been Yes check.svg done. Indeed, I used the Wikidata interface message page for inspiration, but adapted it a bit. Feel free to suggest any other changes. Dmehus (talk) 16:04, 7 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
"make post a request" does not really make sense. It should say either "make" or "post", not both. R4356th 3,443 Local Contributions Logged Actions CentralAuth (talk) 04:04, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Also, the second sentence is missing a period. R4356th 3,443 Local Contributions Logged Actions CentralAuth (talk) 04:04, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Fixed?--MrJaroslavik (talk) 05:38, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes. Thank you both. :) R4356th 3,443 Local Contributions Logged Actions CentralAuth (talk) 09:30, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the suggested wording/grammar fix. The latter sentence was indeed a bit awkward, and I contemplated writing it, but thought I'd just open it up to suggested changes anyway. Dmehus (talk) 14:55, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Error publishing translation

I tried to create a Finnish translation for Category:Board (so Category:Board/fi) but it failed. The reason is AbuseFilter (see log for me). Can any of the administrators create a page Category:Board/fi with content Luokka:Hallitus (in Finnish, board mean hallitus). --Anton (talk) 17:06, 7 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Anton Yeah, we've got to either fine tune that abuse filter, or go back to manually blacklisting certain Board pages from editing. The latter is a bit more work as meeting notes and agendas are posted, but I do favour that option. I'll try and take time to do that tomorrow. Dmehus (talk) 01:51, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay. Thanks for reply. Anton (talk) 08:04, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]


Can a steward check out this user talk page? Iron Sword 23 (talk) 00:35, 17 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you. Yes check.svg Handled. For future reference, a Meta administrator should be capable of handling this. Dmehus (talk) 00:54, 17 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay. Iron Sword 23 (talk) 00:54, 17 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Can you please give me admin?

I want to become an administrator of Miraheze. Jeffersonkendric (talk) 12:03, 16 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Highly unlikely at this time. If you really want it, show up around, comment, lend support and be a known figure around Miraheze. It's a bit of a road to getting permissions; if/when you feel confident, you can make a request here. But again I strongly do not suggest it now. It takes community consensus and current administrator approval, and right now the first hurdle is for the Meta community to know you, then trust you. Double what I just said if you meant administrator of Miraheze, as in something like steward. --Raidarr (talk) 12:39, 16 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Jeffersonkendric: Indeed, as Raidarr pointed out, you need to contribute more before you can become a sysop or a Steward. If you're interested in contributing, visit the Contributing page. There are many opportunities available for you if you wish so. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:37, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Agent Isai Another thing to point out is that it also takes a lot of knowledge, like the wiki's source code and programming language (although not all Stewards know all the programming out there, but CAN patrol whatever wikis they can bet an eyelash on, though).

@Agent Isai and DarkMatterMan4500: This is essentially a dead thread; please stop replying and let Revibot archive this. Thank you. R4356th 3,443 Local Contributions Logged Actions CentralAuth (talk) 14:01, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Also, I am not sure why programming knowledge would be required for admins. R4356th 3,443 Local Contributions Logged Actions CentralAuth (talk) 14:01, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Ugochimobi's RfP

I am Requesting Interface Administrator and Patroller
The main reason is 1) Per Interface Admin, I want to help create some MediaWiki messages that appear when a particular page is protected and also respective of the protection level. 2) Per Patroller, I want to help patrol pages on META and also curb vandalism as much as is humanly possible, I have personally created a script to help Patrollers and Rollbackers to UNDO changes that are vandalism. The script can be found at User:Ugochimobi/undo.
I await a grant from any META Admin. Thanks. Ugochimobi (talk) 20:33, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
