{| style="width: 100%;"
|-
| style="padding: 10px 15px; border-top: 4px solid #67440F; background-color: #FFF2F6;" | <div style="font-size:180%;">'''You have been blocked from editing.'''</div>
<div style="padding-top:0.3em; padding-bottom:0.1em; font-size:100%;">
This block was made by $1.

The reason given is
----
$2

This block will be set to expire at: '''$6'''.

Even when blocked, you can still edit your talk page. You can use the "Email this user" feature if a valid email address is specified in your preferences and you have not been blocked from using it.

into MediaWiki:Blockedtext on Meta. Silicona (talk) 18:43, 1 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Silicona: Would you please provide reasoning for your request? — Arcversin (talk) 15:37, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
In addition to the above, assuming it's for an improved overall aesthetic and consistency with the Meta Wiki look & feel, this is reasonable; however, your identified code does not take into account all of the required variables in the existing interface message. Please amend your code above. Dmehus (talk) 15:40, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The $8 in existing interface message is not necessary. Silicona (talk) 18:21, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
And also $7. Silicona (talk) 18:25, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Silicona: Why not? They provide information ("blocked user" and "start time of block") to the blocked user. Also, this message should mention contacting an administrator in a similar fashion to the current one. Apart from that, this seems pretty reasonable as an aesthetic improvement. — Arcversin (talk) 18:32, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Silicona, per Arcversin's stated reason, I'm definitely willing to implement this, but not without those variables added. So until that's done, I'm marking this as X mark.svg conditionally not done. Dmehus (talk) 18:40, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Here's the new code:
{| style="width: 100%;"
|-
| style="padding: 10px 15px; border-top: 4px solid #67440F; background-color: #FFF2F6;" | <div style="font-size:180%;">'''You have been blocked from editing.'''</div>
<div style="padding-top:0.3em; padding-bottom:0.1em; font-size:100%;">
This block, which affects $7, was made by $1 at $8.

The reason given is
----
$2
----
This block will be set to expire at: '''$6'''.

Even when blocked, you can still edit your talk page. You can discuss this block by requesting an unblock request at [[User talk:$7|your talk page]] or by contacting $1 or other administrator. You can use the "Email this user" feature if a valid email address is specified in your preferences and you have not been blocked from using it. Your current IP address is $3, and the block ID is #$5. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

Silicona, Yes check.svg Done, with this Yes check.svg fix and some minor tweaks to your provided code. Thank you for this suggestion. :) Dmehus (talk) 02:21, 5 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Here's the new code for MediaWiki:Blockedtext-partial:
{| style="width: 100%;"
|-
| style="padding: 10px 15px; border-top: 4px solid #67440F; background-color: #FFF2F6;" | <div style="font-size:180%;">'''Your username and/or IP address has/have been blocked from editing certain pages.'''</div>
<div style="padding-top:0.3em; padding-bottom:0.1em; font-size:100%;">
This block, which affects $7, was made by $1 at $8.

Silicona, what's different here? I note that you're not using the {{int:}} parser function. Any reason why not? Dmehus (talk) 01:47, 6 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Don't confuse MediaWiki:Blockedtext with MediaWiki:Blockedtext-partial. Silicona (talk) 11:35, 7 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Resignation from Patroller

Due to personal issues I will be requesting my resignation from patroller. Hypercane (talk) 09:41, 9 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hypercane, Yes check.svg Done, with regrets. Thank you for your service to Miraheze, as a Meta patroller, a long-time wiki creator who took great care and caution with wikis approved and declined, and to your roles on TestWiki. Dmehus (talk) 14:17, 9 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Requested administrator removal of NDKilla

It is with deep regret having to make this request, as I very much miss NDKilla as a Steward. I miss his guidance, his counsel, his patience, and his incredibly good humour. Nevertheless, as it's quite clear from his last edit and log action, I believe he intended to resign from all permissions. If not, the policy does allow for removal after three (3) calendar months of no activity as a Meta administrator. Could any Meta bureaucrat please kindly process were very likely NDKilla's wishes with one of the following two log summaries: [[Special:Diff/245798|Requested]]. Thank you for your years of service! or, alternatively, Per [[Special:Diff/245798|request]] at [[Meta:Administrators' noticeboard]] following resignation ([[Special:Redirect/logid/688296|#1]]) and [[Special:Redirect/logid/688294|#2]]). Thank you for your years of service!. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 07:00, 17 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I have actioned this request. Thank you for NDKilla for all his work over the years and hopefully he will return in the future when he has more time available to commit. John (talk) 09:52, 17 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Echoing Doug and John, thanks for the long service! ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     online) 10:16, 17 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request for interface administrator

Hi there, I am formally requesting the interface administrator flag to allow me to further assist the community and to allow me to continue my regular Meta Wiki WikiGnoming. I wish to help in maintaining scripts such as Twinkle and perhaps may also publish some potentially useful de-Wikipedified scripts for usage by Meta users too. Additionally, as a contributor of Meta, it often times is very useful to be able to tweak the interface in order to tweak certain system messages (such as edit notices) in order to make them easier to read or more intuitive for our newer users. As for eligibility for this role, I presently hold various advanced permissions on Meta (rollbacker and wiki creator being some of them), I have never been issued a sanction or block and I have a very strong password on my account (on top of 2FA too). Thank you. Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:43, 20 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Agent Isai is generally very active on Meta, clearly has knowledge of JS and CSS and has presented a clear purpose for requesting the right as well as being a trusted member of the community. With the eligibility for this role being met, this is now Yes check.svg Done. Reception123 (talk) (C) 09:59, 20 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
