Autopatrol[edit source]

Hello I think that there isn't any need to patrol ThisIsACreeper0101's edits. He makes constructive edits and so it should be granted to him the autopatrol flag IMHO. アンジェロ先輩 (talk) 17:43, 20 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Agreed. Yes check.svg Done. Dmehus (talk) 01:58, 21 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Flag![edit source]

Hello. I would like to request the patroller flag. I am an active contributor since June of this year and I believe I have sufficient experience to help out as a patroller. Thanks! --Magogre (talk) 10:23, 24 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

He's been a patroller by practical definition for some time, more than suited to the right imo. --Raidarr (talk) 12:55, 24 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Magogre, while I'm not opposed to granting you this user permission based on your more recent activity and edits on Meta Wiki as well as other wikis, including TestWiki, I'm placing this Symbol wait.svg On hold pending an requested account confirmation. Once that's done, I'll take a look at this permission request tomorrow (around this time), with a view to likely granting. Thank you for volunteering! :) Dmehus (talk) 05:49, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Magogre, this was Yes check.svg done. Please see the main patrol guidelines. Dmehus (talk) 19:58, 27 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Request to fix pages in MediaWiki namespace[edit source]

Hello. Can an administrator please:
  1. replace the content of MediaWiki:Group-central notice manager with Central notice managers because it is supposed to be plural.
  2. revert the edits made by Reception123 here as they have seemingly edited the wrong page and create MediaWiki:Group-central notice manager-member with central notice manager as it's content.
  3. create MediaWiki:Grouppage-central notice manager with {{ns:project}}:Central notice managers. Thank you! --Magogre (talk) 03:26, 27 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg Done. Sorry about that, I was looking at the checkuser group as an example and got confused. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:34, 27 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you Reception123. Have you deliberately left MediaWiki:Group-central notice manager-member or there is a reason behind it :) --Magogre (talk) 06:00, 27 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I will do the latter, but am placing this request on hold as we're going to amend the technical group name a bit, mainly to use hyphens rather than spaces, which, admittedly, aren't great in technical terms from an aesthetic point of view, and to use "admin" rather than "manager". Dmehus (talk) 19:47, 27 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus, any updates. --Magogre (talk) 13:51, 6 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Request for patroller[edit source]

Hello, I'm requesting the patroller permission as I think it would be beneficial for me to have it in order to patrol pages that I've already reviewed. I'm generally active on Meta most of the time and already review pages. By becoming a patroller, I would be able to mark the pages I've already reviewed as patrolled to reduce the patrolling backlog. Thank you! Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:30, 28 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Agent Isai, Yes check.svg done per your request at here; please do see the main patrol guidelines. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 03:34, 28 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Request for Patroller[edit source]

Meta has the majority of my edits are on Meta, and on WikiJS, Bongo Cat, and Bukkit my edits combined (on Meta) would be 332 (333 once I make this edit), and although that isn’t a lot, I spend a lot of my time on meta, just looking at other users edits. I believe that this will be beneficial, as this will allow me to mark edits that I have viewed as reviewed. -- Cheers, Bukkit ( TalkAll Contribs ) 22:55, 28 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I think you can probably handle patroller, so this has now been Yes check.svg done. Please do see the main patrol guidelines. Dmehus (talk) 05:12, 29 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Autopatrol TigerBlazer[edit source]

I believe he understands MH policies, and should be auto patrolled. -- Cheers, Bukkit ( TalkAll Contribs ) 01:06, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Support! Anpang Talk Stuff 01:32, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Anpang: I don't see a problem with your comment, but remember this is not a vote, it's just a request to admins. That's why I recommend that you comment without {{support}} YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 02:04, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oh Anpang Talk Stuff 02:34, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Among users with a reception wiki background I've interacted with, I consider TigerBlazer to be one of the more solid users. I wouldn't see him as a type that needs worry through patrol markers. --Raidarr (talk) 09:23, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Bukkit Though the user in question is not that active on Meta Wiki and would generally prefer to see some degree of greater activity, it seemed a bit bureaucratic to grant a temporary autopatrolled right for what would likely end up becoming a fait accompli. Thus, this is Yes check.svg done. Dmehus (talk) 10:33, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you very much :) TigerBlazer (talk) 12:11, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No problem. :) Dmehus (talk) 12:19, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I will say that I would like to contribute to the Meta more often (and now that I have this I just might do that), as I do come here every day to see what is going on, but usually only respond to anything on the noticeboards as I'm not sure what else to do other than that. TigerBlazer (talk) 12:35, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Delete abstain[edit source]

To me, the abstain template is pretty useless. It's the same thing as {{Neutral|Abstain}}. Maybe merge the 2 templates together? Or delete the neutral template or delete the abstain template? (And also make the Abstain page a redirect to Neutral of course) Anpang Talk Stuff 12:31, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

This is reasonable, but should be moved to this noticeboard. I would also add the older template should be kept, whether {{abstain}} or {{neutral}}. Would you mind moving the entirety of this discussion, linking to the most recent permalink in your edit summaries? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 13:11, 30 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Request for Confirmed Permissions[edit source]

It looks like my account on Meta is older than 10 days, but has no Autoconfirmed permission, except on fancadewiki:. I want autoconfirmed permissions. TylerMagee (talk) 16:28, 2 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@TylerMagee: For you to get autoconfirmed, you must also have at least 5 edits on top of being 10 days old. Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:32, 2 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Per Meta:Autoconfirmed users, it requires 4 days and 10 edits to be 'autoconfirmed' on meta. --Magogre (talk) 16:40, 2 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Magogre: We can give you confirmed permissions temporarily, but do you have some specific reason? Also, it's only for this wiki.--MrJaroslavik (talk) 16:14, 3 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@MrJaroslavik: Hi, twas not Mag that requested confirmed, twas TylerMagee. Ugochimobi (talk) 16:20, 3 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
TylerMagee, Yes check.svg done for one week per your request. Note this will apply to Meta Wiki only. If you require confirmed permissions, please ask locally on a suitable venue or on the user talk page of any Special:ListUsers/sysop. If the wiki has no recently active local administrators, you can request steward assistance in their stead at stewards' noticeboard. Dmehus (talk) 09:00, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Autopatrol Danniel[edit source]

I don’t see an apparent reason to patrol his edits. Seems to be a trusted Mirahezian with a lot of edits. -- Cheers, Bukkit ( TalkAll Contribs ) 23:57, 4 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Add this extension[edit source]

Dialog-information on.svg Idea: Add this following extension: mw:Extension:SandboxLink. It can be now or right after the update. It adds the sandbox link on top of the user bars, which makes it much easier YellowFrogger (Talk UnEdits) (Bring back patrolled) 16:17, 7 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
