  • Ask an admin to block a user who is disruptive, vandalizing, or spamming
  • Request user rights that can be assigned by administrators (autoconfirmed, confirmed, rollbacker, translationadmin)
  • Bring up other things that need administrators' attention. (on meta)


  • To request permissions that can't be assigned by an administrator, please see Meta:Requests for permissions
  • To bring up matters that don't apply to this wiki or to request something for another wiki (or can't be handled by administrators), please use Stewards' noticeboard.

Disruptive creation of pages from Marseillaise[edit source]

I gave User:Marseillaise a final warning after they constantly creating test pages and weren't stopping. See for the final warning, this diff for the second warning that was given by User:Amanda Catherine and for the first warning. Despite a final warning, this user still created a blank page at Talk:Request features/header/ro‎‎ after I have told them to stop. Could an admin please take some action over this problem. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 10:59, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

I'm sorry...that last page was me just seeing if it was possible to make blank pages. But I'll go do my tests somewhere else now. Marseillaise (talk) 11:45, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@Marseillaise: Thanks for apologising. I hope you don't test on meta again. If you would like to do testing, please do it on publictestwiki. I already granted you administrator permits there. However, meta is not the place to test. Thank you. Pkbwcgs (talk) 11:49, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@Marseillaise: What is your problem? You apologised and said that you will go somewhere else to do your tests. So what is this about? Pkbwcgs (talk) 13:25, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Sorry....I guess I wasn't thinking right. Marseillaise (talk) 13:26, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
@Marseillaise: You apologised but you done it again. You have tested over here. For the fifth time, Meta is not the place to test. Test on publictestwiki. Adding non-existent categories which is equally disruptive which is what you did here. You said you 'wasn't thinking right'. It is fine if you done it once as a mistake but it is not fine to do it repetitively as it is disruptive. You done it after you apologised the second time. If you continue to be disruptive on meta, you may be blocked. This is your very final warning. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:27, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

I understand. I will try to stay away from being blocked, I certainly don't want that. Marseillaise (talk) 17:53, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Can an admin please handle the problem. This user is still trying to test on meta and is adding non-existent categories to their talk page. Meta is not the place to do testing. I warned them many times. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:05, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
IMO editing their own user/user talk pages isn’t an issue. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 21:02, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
I am not an Admin but agree that editing one's own user page should not be an issue. Editing one's own user talk page could be an issue if it interferes with the talk (such as falsifying or removing other people's comments). Adding nonexistent categories doesn't interfere with the talk. However, the entire pattern of behavior suggests that the user's goal is to annoy or get others to pay attention to him, which Admins should actively discourage. Spıke (talk)01:15 30-Aug-2018
@MacFan4000: The user was disruptive outside their userspace as well if you look in their contributions. Pkbwcgs (talk) 06:33, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Administrators, I think a block may be necessary here for the amount of disruptive editing. This edit is certainly unacceptable and I have given enough warnings and I certainly had enough of this. I have reminded Marseillaise many times to not test out of their userspace. I have suggested them to go to publictestwiki to do testing but they are just testing in Meta. Yes, testing in the userspace is acceptable but testing outside the userspace is unacceptable on meta and a block may be necessary as a result of the disruptive editing as it is not stopping. Pkbwcgs (talk) 10:16, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Spambot[edit source] is spamming persistently. See [1]. Could someone please globally block them. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:26, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

I caught User:RileyCotton and User:Emanuelzozor spamming on Special:AbuseLog. Could a steward or a member of CVT please block them. Pkbwcgs (talk) 15:13, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the report, however as the name indicates, this noticeboard is exclusively for Meta and Meta administrators. So, if possible, when requesting help from Stewards and CVT please use Community noticeboard or Stewards noticeboard if it's restricted to stewards. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:26, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Okay. Understood. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:10, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Please handle Special:AbuseLog/78100[edit source]

Hi, since meta is opted out from CVT, I'd like to have this case handled by a local admin. Thanks.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs) 22:22, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Request for autopatrolled[edit source]

Can someone please add the autopatrolled flag to my account here on Meta? Thanks. Amanda Catherine (talk) 19:12, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done John (talk) 19:22, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Request for adminship and bureaucrat[edit source]

Hi, I'd love to request to become an administrator and bureaucrat on Miraheze. I'm really interested in reverting vandalism, save peoples user pages from vandalism. I have reverted an inappropriate edit from User:Amanda Catherine. She awarded me with the vandalism award. I'd love to step in and become a hero and join in the piece of the action, plus I have lots of knowledge and more to share. Louise3 (talk) 20:08, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Weak oppose While I appreciate your efforts to revert vandalism and I applaud your enthusiasm, I don’t think you are active enough, both on this wiki independently, and in the global Miraheze community, to be granted these rights. Perhaps try again in a month or two once you have more experience and activity. Amanda Catherine (talk) 20:12, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose In light of further evidence that has now come to my attention, it is perfectly clear that the candidate is not being honest or forthcoming. Amanda Catherine (talk) 20:22, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
1 this isn’t the right place for this, 2. If you want to to anti vandal/anti spam work then CVT is probobly a better option. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 21:13, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
