Mark for translation[edit source]

Please mark the current revision of Guide to writing wiki requests for translation. OrangeStar (talk) 22:46, 4 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done but may I suggest that you perhaps apply for translation administrator as you seem to be very active in that field and need pages marked for translation on a regular basis? The hat may prove useful to you. Agent Isai Talk to me! 22:51, 4 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I don't think I need it that much. OrangeStar (talk) 18:09, 5 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@OrangeStar I really think you need it :) --  Joseph  TB  CT  CA  13:21, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Well then, I guess I'll request translation admin. OrangeStar (talk) 20:17, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Mark for translation & protected edit request[edit source]

Requesting the following on the CheckUser article:

  1. Move the </translate> on the "CheckUser tools" section to the end of the article. It appears that's the cause for "tvar name=cu-group><code>{{int:group-checkuser}}</code></tvar"" to show up in the article when it shouldn't
  2. Once that's done, mark the current revision of the article for translation. OrangeStar (talk) 13:16, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Translation administrator request[edit source]

I'd like to have translation administrator status, per the recommendations of Ugochimobi and Agent Isai. I like to translate random stuff I come across on Meta on my free time, and, in the process of translating stuff, I usually spot something on the source page I'd like to change. Currently, my workflow is to do my translations, change what I want to change , then post a request on this noticeboard before logging out so that an administrator can mark the new version for translation. If I have translation admin rights, I can do everything on one sitting. OrangeStar (talk) 20:21, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done Agent Isai Talk to me! 21:07, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@OrangeStar Boom! you got it now :-) --  Joseph  TB  CT  CA  21:54, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Remove Board/Policies from translation[edit source]

I don't see the usefulness of translating Board/Policies, especially because we don't translate the minutes and agenda sub-pages. We can either translate those too or remove this page from the translation system altogether. I personally lean towards removing it. OrangeStar (talk) 14:58, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I would agree. It doesn't make sense to translate the few words on that page and dates especially since subpages aren't. I'll leave this open a bit in case others have different views about this. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:03, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

patroller request[edit source]

Often I check RC to prevent vandalism.In fact,I've watched a lot of spam on wikis hosted by I request patroller permmision.Thank you. by Buel ·Talk·Wikimail 08:28, 10 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Buel Hi, it's great thing you are volunteering :) But just for the record, patrollers can only patrol Meta, as far as I know, there isn't any Global Patroller usergroup. So patrollers on here can only use the bit on here and not on miraheze-wide. I hope a sysop considers your request asap :) --  Joseph  TB  CT  CA  08:34, 10 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I think per Joseph you should clarify if you mean for this wiki, in which case your explanation should tailor to Meta, or if you mean globally, in which case this does not exist. Patroller does not help counter spam either way. --Raidarr (talk) 13:20, 10 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Quick Inquiry[edit source]

I’m trying to edit Moisty’s user page to explain what he was and what he did. Takaya Sakaki (talk) 19:15, 15 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It’s saying I don’t have enough edits. Takaya Sakaki (talk) 19:24, 15 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I’m trying to edit this in:
This is the user page for Moisty. He was a moderator for Qualitipedia and he had frequent discussions there. He also voted on Requests for Comment here. On September 16th, 2022, Moisty decided to retire from Qualitipedia before it would close two weeks later on October 1st of the same year. Moisty would continue to hold some discussions here before deciding to lock his account indefinitely on October 29th, 2022. His Discord is (supposedly) Moisty#5936.
His current whereabouts and projects are unknown. Takaya Sakaki (talk) 19:25, 15 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You should ask him before you do it. Editing other's userpages is generally taboo, but under certain circumstances, is done. This leans towards the taboo side, in my opinion. --Blad (talkcontribsglobal) 19:30, 15 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I can’t get into contact with him and he seems to be forever done with Miraheze. Do you have any way of talking to him? If so, can you ask him if he’s ok with it? Takaya Sakaki (talk) 20:42, 15 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Blad Takaya Sakaki (talk) 23:58, 15 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I have his Discord account, and I may consider getting in touch with him to make sure he's okay with this. --Blad (talkcontribsglobal) 00:54, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Why do you want to do this and why is it necessary? If he didn't want this on his page himself then I don't see much reason to make it in his stead. I doubt he'd significantly mind but this is still quite irregular. --Raidarr (talk) 01:00, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Raidarr I just thought it would be helpful… I saw your user page and I thought it would be useful for Moisty to have the same thing. Takaya Sakaki (talk) 02:46, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
That is an individual choice to make; it depends on individual users to decide what they want on their userspace, I just personally like to 'micromanage' my userpage a bit especially if I expect to leave (initially I did, but I still have some time). When I leave again I'll leave what will be a final update for some time, but that's also something that's up to me and not necessarily something other users can decide for me. Or Moisty, for that matter. --Raidarr (talk) 13:10, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Raidarr …. Which is why I need someone to ask if it’s ok. Takaya Sakaki (talk) 14:39, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Protected edit request in Miraheze[edit source]

Please add the domain where Miraheze's Fediverse account is hosted. Accounts in federated networks are given in the form of @<name>@<domain>.<tld> (in case of Miraheze, it would be This is because Fediverse accounts may be at any domain, just giving the name isn't enough to find an account.

Protect request on Template:MediaWiki-0-Stewards' POLYRHYTHM HELL/Anonymous user notice[edit source]

Can any of the admins protect Template:MediaWiki-0-Stewards' POLYRHYTHM HELL/Anonymous user notice to admins only because LTAs are creating these templates? Silicona (talk) 14:15, 23 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'm not sure this is really necessary as the vandal simply creates templates under whatever name he likes and playing this whack-a-mole is extra overhead that comes to little gain. If it is truly a repetitively created page it might be considered. For now a simple delete and purge of the cause (ip/range) should do. --Raidarr (talk) 14:44, 23 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Rollbacker & Patroller request[edit source]

I find myself reverting some vandalism in Meta, and undo sucks ass when reverting vandalism. Requesting patroller as well, because it makes anti-vandalism easier. OrangeStar (talk) 14:59, 24 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done Hi @OrangeStar: I wanted to suggest you if you don't want these rights few days ago, when there was vandalism attack and you reverted something. So now i accept this request, thank you for volunteering. You can read Template:Patroller granted, if you want.--MrJaroslavik (talk) 16:46, 24 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. Don't feel afraid of contacting me on my talk page, if you need something from me just leave a message and I'll get around to answering as soon as I read the notification email. OrangeStar (talk) 17:08, 24 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Move request[edit source]

Please move User:OrangeStar/es6.js to User:OrangeStar/customsidebar.js. OrangeStar (talk) 18:38, 25 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done,--MrJaroslavik (talk) 18:50, 25 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Requesting admin opinion[edit source]

Can an admin give their opinion on Special:Diff/283957/284563? Personally I don't like these things, but I don't feel about this one strong enough to revert. OrangeStar (talk) 11:16, 27 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Deletion request[edit source]

Please delete the following pages. I created them to test something, but Lua in MediaWiki is way too complex for me.

OrangeStar (talk) 14:47, 27 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done,--MrJaroslavik (talk) 15:23, 27 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

User:Ponyo[edit source]

Unfunny attempt at impersonating a Wikipedia user. I think that account can be safely blocked. OrangeStar (talk) 12:20, 29 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done Thanks for the reminder, i wanted to look into it later.--MrJaroslavik (talk) 12:47, 29 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
