Unprecedented MediaWiki space changes by Agent Isai

I noticed Agent Isai's recent RFC about adding ads, which might have been funny if it weren't sadly realistic. However, they also decided to make unprecedented changes to the MediaWiki space including addition of an image to every noticeboard and changing of group names. Apart from personally not finding these amusing, doing these unprecedented changes to the MediaWiki namespace is certainly not a good idea. I have been yelled at just for removing one line of text, but these are very bad. Given that there is no precedent for April Fools changes at all these could even be construed as vandalism. I don't believe Agent Isai's intent is to confuse people; however, some sort of plan and/or restrictions on changes are a good idea-- especially not public-facing ones on a wiki used by new Miraheze users who can and will be confused by these. Naleksuh (talk) 04:56, 1 April 2023 (UTC)

These system messages aren't really any super publicly facing things that the average joe will notice or deeply ponder about. Will users really be left wondering why a member of the oversight group is called "memory hole"? Where will they see that message? Special:ListUsers/oversight? Most can easily construe it's a joke and most new users will never even see these. The workflow of most users is Special:UserLogin -> Special:RequestWiki -> Special:RequestWikiQueue -> their new wiki. The system messages for all those pages are purposefully left untouched on purpose as those will confuse others. Globally facing pages, such as policies like Stewards (which are linked globally in each global group's Grouppage link) which might cause issues are equally unaffected. These system messages are purposefully kept local on Meta and not pushed globally via MirahezeMagic (as suggested years ago when this idea was first proposed). The only users who will see these are 'powerusers' on Meta who will appreciate the joke, moreso knowing that April 1st is April Fools Day. I invite the community to opine on whether these small changes are actually problematic. I agree big changes (e.g. blanking Terms of Use to feature a picture of Jimbo) is a big no but what about temporary changes to system messages of rather infrequently looked at group names? Additionally, Naleksuh reverted a change to MediaWiki:Common.css which flipped the logo upside down when hovering. Certainly this won't cause Meta to implode now will it? Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:16, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
If people won't notice it, then what purpose would it serve? Either way, the MediaWiki space is not really the place for jokes as it is supposed to be a sensitive space. But maybe it's one of those things where it only applies to edits I make and other people can just do whatever they want in it. Naleksuh (talk) 05:27, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
New people won't notice it but powerusers will appreciate it, I'm sure most will agree. I'm guessing you're citing the MediaWiki:Logentry-removepii-action and MediaWiki:Logentry-farmer-requestonhold messages you customized which were deleted. Regarding the first one, I'm sure you agree with the justification. Regarding the second one, to say one "held" something in the sense of placing something on hold isn't common but for messages regarding extensions like that, it would make more sense to make a PR proposing an i18n change rather than just making a local system message change that diverges from an extension we control and that won't be internationalized. Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:38, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
No mostly MacFan4000's complaints about my changes to the MediaWiki space. Then again they complain about every single thing I do so maybe it wasn't really about the MediaWiki space after all Naleksuh (talk) 05:40, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
I've seen enough micro changes from you that didn't add particularly much to wonder if it's really all that sensitive to be honest. Anyway, the edit was rather harmless but perhaps not in the best taste. Call me a grouch but I find april tomfoolery to just be a source of problems. Case in point evidently. --Raidarr (talk) 08:16, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
I don't know what personal grudge I just walked into, but can we please not sour the good-natured humor of April 1st (and every other day thereafter) with it? It's getting exhausting, frankly, even for objective viewers. If massive companies can and have a sense of good nature and humor about themselves for a period 24 hours, it should be reasonable to expect that obviously well-meaning members of a small non-profit like MH can also do so. It's once a year, as an exception that much of the world can understand without making an issue where there needn't be one.
April fools is really an "unprecedented changes" day... (inflammatory title?) maybe of having a sense of humor, being flexible, understanding, and above all, good-natured towards others for 24 hours. In other words, this is starting to look petty (to a Canadian, no less, sorry!). Can there be a forward-facing attempt to even just present a face of assuming good faith going forward? For the sake of the community, please? Thank you -- I was, until now, rather enjoying the internet good-natured silliness. If this is your dead-pan "just kidding this complaint was a silly joke, too" prank, now would be an excellent time to crack a (described) smile, for the love of all that is MH. | -- FrozenPlum (Talk / Email) 17:57, 1 April 2023 (UTC)
Yeah, um. If this complaint was a joke, now would be the time to say it. If not, this entire thread is objectively pointless. Everyone just laugh a little. It's not a big thing where we have to start yet another long discussion about something that in the long run, will not matter and is just a joke. April Fool's Day is as FrozenPlum said, to have fun and be good-natured to others. Let's set aside the vendettas for one day, please. All of this is in good fun, there's no harm intended.

Rollbacker & Patroller request

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)

rollbacker and interface-admin request

This is a re-request.Please see hereby Buel ·Talk·e-mail 23:18, 14 December 2022 (UTC)

 Not done The only reason for requesting this seems to be a need to translate local MediaWiki messages but most messages that need to be translated are available on so there's not really a need for this. This also seems to be a very narrow purpose that wouldn't justify granting such a role. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:12, 15 December 2022 (UTC)

IP block exemption request

It seems the bot used on Meta to archive stuff isn't working anymore, so I plan on using a currently-unused server I have for this. However, when I was going to create an account for it through Special:CreateAccount, I discovered that I was blocked from creating accounts. I use proxies 99% of the time, with rare exceptions, like when I created my account here.

So, while I can edit and do almost anything no problem, I'd like to be able to use account creation while logged in, just for transparency, so people see that bot account is indeed mine. OrangeStar (talk) 20:37, 17 December 2022 (UTC)

For starters a bot like this would require a request for permissions first. Secondly, most of us have a way to contact the user who maintains said bot, and I will contact them right now to see what the issue is. So at the moment  Not done. Zppix (Meta | talk to me) 20:39, 17 December 2022 (UTC)
Is it not possible to create an account while logged in? It definitely should be. Can you paste the error you encountered so that I may see why that occurred? That's certainly not intended behavior and may indicate a bug. Agent Isai Talk to me! 21:02, 17 December 2022 (UTC)
I mean, I'm not able due to a block here to an "open" proxy. I'd rather not paste the error, as I don't want to reveal what proxy I'm using. OrangeStar (talk) 21:05, 17 December 2022 (UTC)
You can send me the error via IRC if you want. Do note that we also block web hosts too so if you're using a VPN on a VPS, that's why. We generally only block ranges when they cause issues, not really proactively (which is an issue sometimes). Agent Isai Talk to me! 21:34, 17 December 2022 (UTC)

No wiki requests can be processed because current database issues must be resolved (updates come as they occur at Tech:SRE noticeboard). Apologies for the inconvenience. Wiki Creators are unfortunately unable to even view requests at this time. --Raidarr (talk) 18:41, 21 December 2022 (UTC)

Protect User talk:Airtransat236 from anonymous editing

The talk page of a user named Airtransat236 has been subject to vandalism by an IP editor dating back several months. Each time their vandalism has been removed, they add more. It seems like the only way to stop it is to protect that page so that only logged-in users can edit it. Tali64³ (talk) 19:53, 29 December 2022 (UTC)

Also going to add that this was an issue on TestWiki recently, and the IP range(s) have now been blocked. If a global block could be implemented on the IP range (GS/Steward), that would be much appreciated. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 20:12, 29 December 2022 (UTC)
@Tali64³ @Airtransat236, I have protected the page for 3 weeks for excessive vandalism, after that time if problem continues, further action will be considered, including but not limited to implementing abuse filters. Zppix (Meta | talk to me) 20:05, 31 December 2022 (UTC)
Hello there. These IP adresses has been also vanadalising and typing nonsense my talk pages on Wikimedia wikis too.

Article body way off to the right after 1.39 upgrade

After the 1.39 upgrade, the article body is way off to the right. I believe this code in MediaWiki:Vector.css is causing the problem:

.mw-content-container, .mw-article-toolbar-container {
    max-width: none;
    margin-left: 11.5em;

Disabling the margin-left property with Inspect Element fixes the issue, so an interface administrator should remove it. Tali64³ (talk) 00:50, 22 January 2023 (UTC)

For the record, the page was deleted entirely only a few minutes after I posted this. Tali64³ (talk) 16:16, 28 January 2023 (UTC)

Resumption of translation administrator, patroller, and rollbacker toolsets

I'm able to be more active again on Miraheze, and looking to assist with constructive improvements, WikiGnoming, patrolling, reverting blatant vandalism, and the like, so having the above tools back in my toolset would be very helpful.

Request for translation administrator (Danniel)

Greetings. I would like to request translation administrator rights. I have been active in Meta for a long time and the vast majority of my contributions here are Spanish translations. It's the only language with which I can collaborate, though according to what I have seen, many Spanish translations are needed in Meta pages, since many are not finished or have errors. Being a translation administrator would help me do this better by being able to mark pages for translation (for example Category:Autopatrolled users cannot be translated but has red links pointing to it) or fix the wiki code for it. Thanks in advance. Danniel (talk) 02:08, 7 February 2023 (UTC)

The user has been active the past 2 days, but before that their last day of activity on Meta was January 23. Before that, December 2022. I'm not a sysop, but in my opinion would like to see a bit more consistent activity before a sysop grants the right. Again, not a sysop, just my 2 cents. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 04:31, 7 February 2023 (UTC)
I totally agree, my activity has been kind of sporadic recently. However I'm committed to being much more active. Danniel (talk) 16:02, 7 February 2023 (UTC)
Absolutely, and in a few weeks if you show that I'd totally be in support of this request. However, your activity as you said, has been sporadic, and generally for volunteers we like to see some level of consistency before granting extended rights. Obviously, it's a sysop decision, but consistency is key. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 16:04, 7 February 2023 (UTC)

BrandonWM's Request for Translation Administrator

Hi there. After discussion with Reception123, this conversation has been moved from Discord to Meta.

I'd like to request that I be authorized the use of the translation-admin right on Miraheze Meta, to assist with marking pages for translation. I'm currently a patroller on Meta, and have served with said right with no incidents that have been reported against me. I regularly patrol translations on the Recent Changes feed (on Meta), and have varying levels of expertise in Spanish, French, and Gujarati. I am fluent in English.

As I said above, there haven't been any issues with me in my time as a patroller, and I hope to continue that over with the translate-admin right if my request is successful. I am familiar with the MediaWiki interface in addition, as well as all Miraheze policies.

I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have. Thank you for your consideration. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 07:39, 7 February 2023 (UTC)

Have you engaged in translation work recently? Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:26, 7 February 2023 (UTC)
I haven't engaged in creating translations recently. However, I have focused on reviewing translations lately, certifying they're legitimate. If I was a translation administrator, I'd also be involved in marking pages for translation that haven't been marked yet, and continuing with my work of reviewing translations. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 16:49, 7 February 2023 (UTC)
After discussing this with other meta administrators I have decided to decline this request. I do not feel the reason indicated is sufficient enough to grant these rights. Additionally, you haven't indicated you have done any translation work, or demonstrated any obvious need for these rights currently. Moreover, I am not 100% convinced that you understand the rights, and given recent events (while some may not be fully your fault due to misunderstandings), I am not fully confident with this request at this time. For that reason this is  Not done. I hope you can understand. Universal Omega (talk) 05:31, 12 February 2023 (UTC)

@Universal Omega: Thank you for consideration. I'll definitely continue to work on Miraheze to try and improve it for all users. I have taken your feedback, and will strive to improve in the areas you've listed. Thank you for your consideration. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 05:34, 12 February 2023 (UTC)

Justmans request for Translation administrator status

Justman (talk • contribs • page moves • block log • CA • rights log • global rights log • abuselog • farmer log • block)
With literally over 2200 translations, I am now asking for a translation administrator again! Moreover, I have also corrected and extended source texts of translations... And even if my account (and moreover my main account) does not exist for a long time, one should not judge anyone by it... Justman (talk) 13:27, 8 February 2023 (UTC)

I do not think it is fair to ask us not to judge someone by their account age. The more someone is here the more it can be argued that they are committed to this project. I believe that it is important for users to get more acquainted with Meta and the Miraheze project before rushing to collect hats. DeeM28 (talk) 19:59, 8 February 2023 (UTC)
Well, with my literally over 2200 translations, one can't rule out that I'm interested in this either... Justman (talk) 00:25, 9 February 2023 (UTC)
Furthermore, it would be quite practical to have those permissions at my disposal... In that case, I could continue my work optimally... Justman (talk) 00:27, 9 February 2023 (UTC)
If someone can look over and verify the quality of translation, perhaps this would be worth considering? Account age should be a factor but it can be balanced by what is being brought to the table + the utility of the right/danger of its misuse. With a late January registration though, this sort of in depth scrutiny is required since the Meta administration has no other track record to look at which would elicit confidence.
Worst case scenario it may be beneficial for you to continue building the profile and also make a wider presence on Meta so you are better known and so this confidence is easier to get, before making requests for advanced rights. You also mentioned another account - which account would that be may I ask? --Raidarr (talk) 14:25, 12 February 2023 (UTC)

which account would that be may I ask?

@Justman10000 Justman (talk) 14:41, 12 February 2023 (UTC)
@Universal_Omega what you mean? I have quite a few translations, so... Justman (talk) 13:11, 20 February 2023 (UTC)
Universal Omega has not responded to this thread, as far as I can see. As Raidarr has stated, it's best to build up your translation portfolio and account age and trust within the community before requesting translate-admin status. I'm assuming this request has been denied as an active Meta admin has not responded to this request, so again I'll state the above and recommend that the user follows Raidarr's advice before requesting again. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 17:37, 20 February 2023 (UTC)
Say, someone with literally over 3000 translations is not trustworthy? Just because his account is less than 2 years old? Think about it, everyone... Without the permissions, I'm beginning to see no point in continuing to translate here, especially as I can't help in any other areas! Justman (talk) 22:06, 20 February 2023 (UTC)
A few questions out of curiosity, feel free to decline to answer:
  1. What brought you to the Miraheze platform? It's welcome but a bit unusual for someone to start translating without prior involvement on any of the wikis hosted by Miraheze.
  2. An average of ~84 translations a day is quite a commitment! Can you provide any insights into what's motivating you to contribute at such an impressive rate?
  3. You also requested Wiki Creator permissions recently but didn't give much context as to why you wanted or were qualified for that role. Now that you've been with the Miraheze community a little longer, could you explain a bit more about why you were asking for those rights?
--NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 23:53, 20 February 2023 (UTC)
@Justman: Think that NotAracham's questions are great and you should answer those as it could help decide whether or not an admin will grant you the rights. Wanted to add a question of my own:
Translations are extremely helpful for the Miraheze platform, translations or not. The translation administrator's primary right is to mark pages for translation. Why is that right absolutely necessary for you in order to keep translating? Obviously it adds some things to your toolset, but why would translating for Miraheze be meaningless without it?
As NotAracham stated, feel free to decline to answer, just a question that could help provide insight. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 04:13, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
It's not mandatory, the problem is that some pages have wrong or not so correct syntax for translations! I honestly don't want to correct each of these pages anymore, only to wait at worst a week for the release! Justman (talk) 07:14, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
1. Am unsure, certainly in one of my searches somehow came here via Google.
2. It is fun for me to translate, to help others! I myself hate not being able to translate something, why not make it easier for others?
3. Wiki creator I would still like to be, also just to help others to build their communities! In fact I already have experience with it, as I already started to create my own wikifarm. Justman (talk) 07:10, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I can not approve this request at this time. Your account is only 26 days old, and regardless of your activity as translation administrator, I do not believe that is sufficient time to show you understand the tools you'd be given. Additionally, there are other instances that show that you have been disrespectful to volunteers, and persistent after being told no. There have been instances on GitHub for example that shows that you're being disrespectful, and persistent even though you were told no. Even though this didn't occur on-wiki, it, combined with you're less than a month old account doesn't show your trustworthiness, or your need for the translateadmin tools at this time. My advice to you is to show your trustworthiness, and good quality of translations, and re-request this in at least two more months. I would not be comfortable giving these advanced rights out given some history, and your persistence, even when told no, in the very short time you have been here. Therefore, at this time, this request is  declined. Thank you. Universal Omega (talk) 07:49, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Then I see myself forced to stop my work for the time being, because it would have no real sense to continue without these permissions... We'll see in two months... Justman (talk) 08:06, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Translation administrator isn't necessary to be a translator. Not having a "hat" doesn't have to be used as the reason to do things that are perfectly possible to be done without a hat. Reception123 (talk) (C) 11:22, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
As I said before, I don't see the point in waiting up to a week to translate a page because the original version has incorrect or not quite correct translation syntax, and I have to wait until my corrections are freely given! Justman (talk) 12:22, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Translation admin allows a user to mark a page as translated though, not to correct syntax as you mention. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:53, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
What do you mean? I meant, I wait every time that my edits are given free to translate.... Sometime one has also no more Bock on it!... Justman (talk) 13:19, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
I should mention for the record that a 2 month re-request is entirely contingent on other things happening that build the trust, not complete absence or refusing to do things. If the principle concern doesn't change and isn't demonstrated to be changed then advanced rights will never be given. --Raidarr (talk) 13:11, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Until what changes? Justman (talk) 13:19, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
The various concerns that have already been described. I also heard something about machine use for translation but you'll have to confirm if that is involved or not. --Raidarr (talk) 13:34, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Yes, I use DeepL, which is the most stable translation machine on earth! Nevertheless, of course mistakes happen, but then I correct them... Justman (talk) 13:36, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Again, it's best to listen to the advice of Raidarr and Universal Omega. Focus on building up trust in the community as well as your translating portfolio. In 2 months time or so, if you feel you can succeed in a request for the rights again, please feel free. But taking an extended leave of absence from Miraheze won't help your case (ie. waiting 2 months for stuff to die down and then requesting again).
In any case, it might be best to leave this thread alone as useful information seems to have run out. The user has been made aware of the concerns surrounding them and their conduct, and hopefully will strive to correct said issues. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 15:39, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
How to expand my portfolio? I literally have over 3000 translations! Justman (talk) 17:50, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
So, do more. More translations always help. Account age is also a factor. I get it's not what you want to hear, but it is what it is. Please have some patience. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 05:44, 22 February 2023 (UTC)

Request for lifting of restrictions

Hi there. I'm submitting a request for my existing user restrictions on Meta to be lifted. The existing restrictions can be found here. I'm not aware if there are more active restrictions by Meta admins, but I don't believe there are, having checked my talk page. Any clarification would be much appreciated though. I'm requesting this because I believe that I have improved on the original concerns that users had with me when I returned to Miraheze, specifically my competency. I am now a Meta patroller, and I believe that I am at least somewhat trusted by the Miraheze community now. I'd like to appeal and request that all Meta administrator restrictions be lifted. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 03:17, 7 March 2023 (UTC)

I oppose this request, at least until it's been a considerable length of time since this. BrandonWM on multiple occasions ignored a topic ban. While I have not seen any major problems with RfCs created (some of them are things I disagree with, but people are allowed to have opinions), I think it would be better to let this stay for some time, both as it's been hours since this restriction was pointed out and with the issue of recently going around such restrictions. Naleksuh (talk) 06:17, 7 March 2023 (UTC)
Also the user is still requestwiki blocked Naleksuh (talk) 06:21, 7 March 2023 (UTC)
I will note that the requestwikiblocked is separate from Meta administrator restrictions and cannot be removed by sysops, so that has no relevance or bearing here. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 06:24, 7 March 2023 (UTC)
Considering this request I have decided to accept it and lift remaining restrictions. The fact that it's only been hours since the restrictions were pointed out and that as far as I understand BrandonWM was unaware of their continued existence is actually to me an argument for them not being needed; the fact that nothing "bad" happened during the time when their existence was unknown. As for TestWiki, I have made my thoughts clear regarding the way the restrictions were communicated and administered there so I wouldn't take that as an argument against lifting. I think for the future it would be strongly indicated to find a different way to implement such restrictions so that they are not forgotten by the user and by everyone else including administrators (for example a partial block or the use of an AbuseFilter). Either way as a general note, BrandonWM has improved and has been unblocked and unbanned on a large number of other Miraheze projects such as GitHub and Phabricator where I haven't really seen any of the past behavior being repeated. That being said, I would like to make clear that you should be very careful when doing the things that were previously part of the restrictions and not falling back into the old habits that caused them to be introduced in the first place as they can always be re-introduced if necessary.

Request Translation Administrator right

I want to request the Translation Administrator right on Meta-Wiki. I've checked the page, and don't see any hard requirements such as the minimum number of edits required etc. ,in the policy.

Blocking request

Request for Translation Administrator

Please grant me exemption from Tor blocks

This is a Meta-specific issue, because on all other wikis, once an account is created for you, you can continue using Tor. On Meta, I am unable to edit over Tor (though I am able to use VPNs) because the wiki's configuration has been changed from the default to still blocked signed-in Tor users.

Due to ongoing legal disputes initiated by HoYoverse, the developers of Genshin Impact, against private servers and game leaks (I am actively involved in private server development and have plans to make a website that organizes game leaks), I believe that a VPN alone is no longer enough for my operational security purposes, and as such, I would like to request permission to use Tor on Meta so that I can protect my privacy, safety, and pseudonymity.

Thank you! Collei (talk) (contribs) 06:45, 9 April 2023 (UTC)

Per T10685, I'm here to request confirmed group in order to use Special:OAuthConsumerRegistration. I'm the founder of theredpionnerwiki, and have made over 1,000 edits on my wiki.

I'm looking to apply for an OAuth consumer for my self-hosted IABot, because although there is already a consumer on Miraheze (by Cyberpower678), it doesn't seem to be working (for example, its corresponding panel does not support login from Miraheze at all ).

@Randomguy1234: not the appropriate venue. You can appeal the actions I took on my talk page, by email to stewards@, or figure it out with local administrators by messaging them on their talk pages here. Considering you aren't giving much to work with I would take a long break instead. If you avoid further block evasion and disruption and improve yourself elsewhere, you will have a case for appeal.

Globe's request for patroller rights

Hello Meta Administrators,

I would like to be granted patroller rights so I can see edits that have not been patrolled and patrol them or revert them. I feel that this is a simple, helpful task that I am capable of that could help out the Counter-Vandalism team. I have been on Miraheze for ~60 days and I have ~340 edits globally. Globe (talk) 20:00, 19 April 2023 (UTC)

Also, if you think I am qualified, Rollback rights to quickly revert edits may also be helpful when I chose to revert edits and not patrol them. If you don't think I am qualified, ignore this. :) Globe (talk) 15:01, 20 April 2023 (UTC)

At the very minimum, I don't see a reason why autopatrolled rights shouldn't be granted. The user clearly knows how Miraheze operates. Patroller I could see a reason for as well. I wouldn't give out rollbacker just yet, but the other two seem more than fine in my opinion. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 15:18, 20 April 2023 (UTC)
Okay @BrandonWM:. Thanks for your comment here. Globe (talk) 16:01, 20 April 2023 (UTC)
Can this be done if a meta admin is available? Globe - (TalkContributionsCA) 20:31, 4 May 2023 (UTC)
Patroller is not connected to CVT, and indeed doesn't really do anything particular as anyone is at liberty to review edits and correct issues as needed. Frankly in this case Globe, your edits have merited needing a second glance more often than not, and so my advice to overseeing meta administrators is that there is no demonstrated need and indeed quite the opposite. --Raidarr (talk) 21:23, 4 May 2023 (UTC)
@Raidarr: By helping the CVT, I was referring to this on the patroller page: “Patrolling helps administrators and other patrollers coordinate their efforts against spam and ensure all edits are reviewed for compliance with local policies.” Which of my edits do you feel have needed review? I want to learn from my mistakes, if they occur. Globe - (TalkContributionsCA) 14:22, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Can this be done? Globe - (TalkContributionsCA) 14:22, 8 May 2023 (UTC)

Do you mean because of the system administrator global group? If so, please note that that is only meant to be used in SRE related matters and shouldn't be used for things you do in your personal capacity as user.

HeyTürkiye's Translation Administrator Request (2)

Dear Miraheze community, I am HeyTürkiye. As you know, the translation approval process is a long process and my first request was archived without anyone looking at it (without approval). In general, my goal is to introduce users in Turkey to Miraheze and to promote the pages by adding them to Turkish. Usually, when I add something to the translation, I get stuck in the approval request and it is approved very slowly. I would like to request Translation Administrator authorisation in order to get things done faster. I would be very grateful if the community could give me their opinion. The opinions of the community are very valuable to me, I try to correct my mistakes thanks to your warnings. Sincerely,  Hey Türkiye Message? 18:29, 8 May 2023 (UTC)

  1.  Support I think that since you are going to try to spread MH, that you should be able to have Translator Admin rights. MH does need to be introduced to other countries, and since Turkiye has their own language, and you are a native speaker of Turkish, you should be able to lead the spread of MH into Turkiye.

    BrandonWM is right in that for a group with such a specific and limited task it is quite unnecessary to have "votes". The community may of course express views but I think an actual "vote" is of limited use here. Reception123 (talk) (C) 09:27, 11 May 2023 (UTC)
    Response Response @Reception123 My aim is not in any way 'let me get votes, get permission'. You completely misunderstood me. My goal was to support the Meta Administrators by getting the community's comments (optional, anyone can comment, no force). I removed it as you requested. I hope you understand what I'm saying. Hey Türkiye Message? 15:18, 11 May 2023 (UTC)
    If my aim was to get votes, I wouldn't even apply here. The permissions are already limited, there is no need to vote. Hey Türkiye Message? 15:19, 11 May 2023 (UTC)
    I would add that if the user will be granted translation admin rights, it would be nice to grant autopatrolled as well. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 15:22, 13 May 2023 (UTC)
    Response Response @BrandonWM you are right, it would be reasonable and good if given. Hey Türkiye Message? 18:52, 13 May 2023 (UTC)
     Question Tag to the last active admins: @Agent Isai, Reception123 How long does it take to export this Translation Administrator? It shouldn't take long for it to grant discretionary authorization without a community decision. Of course, the decision is yours, I don't want to force it, but it would be better if the request is made without archiving. --Hey Türkiye Message? 18:57, 13 May 2023 (UTC)
 Not done I'm afraid you're not ready for the role. Being a translation administrator entails you knowing how the translation system works such as how tvars work, how to prepare a page, etc., not just being a prolific translator. Your recent edit to Global Sysop shows me you are not ready as you wanted to mark an internationalization magic word ({{int:}}) for translation. These are interface messages which are being used and already translated on Translatewiki so we don't mark them for translation. I suggest you read closely the documentation for the Translate extension before requesting the permission next time. Agent Isai Talk to me! 19:04, 13 May 2023 (UTC)
Response Response @Agent Isai First of all, I would like to state that I feel sorry for the red. Knowing has nothing to do with not knowing. (If you say you will translate it on Translatewiki; I don't know it, sorry) For your information, I will try to pay attention from now on. Hey Türkiye Message? 19:11, 13 May 2023 (UTC)
Response Response In addition, I would like to point out; I have attempted to 'translate the menu from my language' global Sysop arrangement. Maybe I'm wrong about this, I beg your pardon. Hey Türkiye Message? 19:13, 13 May 2023 (UTC)
By the way, I realized the mistake I made, it turns out that I had to change my language. shit! Hey Türkiye Message? 19:17, 13 May 2023 (UTC)

Request to import required Lua dependency for Template:User

If any administrator could import the required dataset dependency, or dependencies, for Module:TNT to fix the Lua error at Template:User, that would be great.

My purpose is to help the administrators in assigning tasks. For your information. Best regards, -- Hey Türkiye Message? 17:56, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
I defer to TAs and local admins before acting in the third mentioned Steward capacity, but in general my opinion aligns with Brandon: I do not see the need for the translation to apply and am unconvinced that doing so won't result in usage complexity. --Raidarr (talk) 15:48, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
Response Response I would like to address my answer to BrandonWM to you in the same way @Raidarr; Please ask this question to the user who added the translation extension. Best regards, -- Hey Türkiye Message? 17:59, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
The translation extension itself is subject to conceptual flaws that are subject to an ongoing RfC. Its outcome will be pivotal in handing translation going forward really. I think a few people have changed their minds on translation as time went on. --Raidarr (talk) 18:07, 25 May 2023 (UTC)

Unmarked translation requests

Dear translation administrators,
There are unmarked translation requests on the Custom domains page and the Template:Help navigation page. It is respectfully announced to the persons concerned.

Best Regards,
--Hey Türkiye Message? 17:07, 30 May 2023 (UTC)

While it is appreciated to have an active user assisting in translations across Miraheze Meta, I’m not sure it’s necessary to have an AN thread for every time there’s a new edit to a page that’s translated, and it needs to be re-marked. Someone will get to it when they can. Correct me if I’m wrong, but if we were to post a message every time an edit was made to a translatable page, this noticeboard would be spammed through the roof. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 01:01, 31 May 2023 (UTC)
That being said though, I thank you for your contributions to the translations as it’s quite useful for foreign-language users and improving Meta documentation. This is by no means an ask to stop with that at all, because it is appreciated. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 01:02, 31 May 2023 (UTC)
Don't worry @BrandonWM. If this place fills up with requests, we'll make a request to open Translation Administrator noticeboard on RfC :) Don't worry Hey Türkiye Message? 20:28, 31 May 2023 (UTC)
@HeyTürkiye  Done I have marked them for translation. Zppix (Meta | talk to me) 17:25, 31 May 2023 (UTC)

Naleksuh edit warring again

They've been warned many times, by multiple Meta administrators. Note that edit warring does not require three reverts; that is an English Wikipedia-centric policy, not a Miraheze Meta Wiki one. On Meta Wiki, we consider edit warring when a user reverts an edit someone else does. Agent Isai reverted their edit. They know the correct process should have been to open a discussion at either User talk:Agent Isai or at Talk:Requests for Comment/Global ban for Naleksuh. Given they've been warned in the past, I would suggest a 3-7 day Meta Wiki edit warring block. Dmehus (talk) 04:24, 7 June 2023 (UTC)

If Naleksuh engages in an edit war, they will be re-blocked indefinitely as they are violating Global bans policy. Agent Isai Talk to me! 04:26, 7 June 2023 (UTC)
User:Agent Isai I don't think I did edit war, I wrote a comment and added a noindex tag. I think Dmehus means the second one, but Agent Isai removed it saying they were "fixing spacing", so I added it with spacing fixed. However, I don't see why my entire comment was removing citing edit warring. Please put it back. Naleksuh (talk) 04:29, 7 June 2023 (UTC)
That is quite the argument! I don't know what to make of it, but I'll give you credit for originality. So you're saying that because Agent Isai removed your _NOINDEX_ whilst ostensibly forgetting to remove the spacing, you re-added the magic word but fixed the spacing and thus you are not edit warring? Wow. I've heard a lot of legal doozies in my day, but this one takes the cake. Well lawyered, counselor. ;) Dmehus (talk) 04:34, 7 June 2023 (UTC)
How is engaging in an edit war violating global bans policy? I believe they are violating Meta Wiki policy and convention and should be reblocked. I am agnostic as to term length of the block. Indefinite works for me. Dmehus (talk) 04:29, 7 June 2023 (UTC)
He has been reblocked indefinitely, the policy in which he was allowed to be unblocked states if disruptive he will be reblocked. He is beyond warnings at this point. Zppix (Meta | talk to me) 04:34, 7 June 2023 (UTC)
Thank you.  Completed by Zppix. Dmehus (talk) 04:36, 7 June 2023 (UTC)

Request for undeletion of this revision of Amanda Catherine

It's germane to a current Phabricator discussion. I am agnostic as to whether it's undeleted to a subpage of Amanda's userspace, user talk space, or undeleted and history merged into a talk page archive. Thanks! :) Dmehus (talk) 04:48, 11 June 2023 (UTC)

What exactly is this revision? – AmandaCath (talk) 15:44, 11 June 2023 (UTC)
 Not done at this time. Currently there is no precedence to undelete specific revisions that are within a user’s userspace. Furthermore, the revision in question is borderline uncivil and will not be restored due to that as well. If the SRE team would like to use that revision during their decision making process, they are fully capable of viewing such revision themselves, or reaching out to the appropriate persons.

Request for restoration of my interface administrator permission

I previously held the interface administrator position, and as I resume activity here, in my WikiGnoming, cleanup, and maintenance here, I am noticing the need to fix up some interface messages. Existing interface administrators on Meta Wiki all hold multiple roles, including SRE roles which involve tending to always extensive Phabricator task backlogs, so I'm confident these tools will be of assistance to me in assisting administrators and stewards alike in responding to requests as well. I can promise to be semi-active here, will let an administrator know if I will be away for more than three weeks at a time, should they wish to proactively remove the permission, and assert that I have a strong password and two-factor authentication enabled on my account. Dmehus (talk) 18:00, 21 May 2023 (UTC)

 Comment: ( Support) Dmehus is already a trusted user and has Global interwiki administrator rights. What Dmehus says is completely correct, the CAs all have multiple roles and are doing other things. I believe that in the future (maybe) if the rights of Reverser and Patroller are removed, he will become an IA. I wish him success in his new role. Hey Türkiye Message? 18:23, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
This isn't a vote. Agent Isai Talk to me! 18:26, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
Response Response If you notice I wrote a comment, it's at the very beginning. @Agent Isai Hey Türkiye Message? 18:28, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
In fairness, I think Agent Isai was referring to your !voting template, not your comment. Dmehus (talk) 18:29, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
Response Response I just wanted to give a brief opinion. After all, we are human; something is overlooked. Hey Türkiye Message? 18:32, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
HeyTürkiye, while I appreciate the vote of confidence and your comments, I echo Agent Isai's comments that this technically is not a permission that is notionally and officially !voted upon, but of course, users may opine if they wish. Dmehus (talk) 18:29, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
Response Response @Dmehus I want to join. I just wanted to express an opinion and a vote of confidence. Hey Türkiye Message? 18:32, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
If I'm being honest I don't think general comments of support are useful in votes like these. Perhaps if someone has an objection for specific reasons that can be raised but I don't see a particular usefulness in generalized statements.
As for the actual request, it would probably be ideal to see a bit of activity first as you return and also perhaps a more specific use case for the role and what things you plan on doing. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:36, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
Reception123 Just reiterating here what we discussed on IRC. I believe I've demonstrated sufficient activity thus far, for this particular permission, together with my commitment to keep Meta administrators apprised should I expect to be absent for more three or more weeks, in which case, I'd be happy to temporarily turn in the bit again. In terms of use case, it's related mainly to fixing/retargeting MediaWiki interface messages mainly, as part of my general WikiGnoming. Thanks! :) Dmehus (talk) 02:00, 22 May 2023 (UTC)
@Dmehus: The whole trust bit and use case I don't see a problem with whatsoever, you are quite trusted and I have faith in your ability to use the right. My primary concern here is your activity. You've been quite spotty as of late. I'm not sure of the why, so I won't jump to any conclusions, but there have been requests like this made previously by you, which shortly after you disappear. This has happened once or twice now that I can recall. Certainly, it's odd for me to see you demonstrate frequent activity for a few days and then vanish for months. If you can commit to being activity regularly for the forseeable future, I would have no issue with this. If you can't, an explanation why would be great if possible. I'm not a Meta administrator, and this isn't a vote obviously, but it's a concern I have, especially given the exclusive nature of this right, currently only two users hold it. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 03:24, 22 May 2023 (UTC)
Dmehus has communicated to me the concerns expressed in this request, and I do believe now that adding him to this right would be a net positive for Miraheze overall. My concerns haven't fully dissipated, but have enough to the point where I feel comfortable submitting this message. I do believe that if given the time, my concerns will dissolve. It's just a matter of activity. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 03:39, 22 May 2023 (UTC)
It is reasonable to have some concern given the cyclic activity, although in this request I think it would be fair to take the op's promise at face value since trust is clearly not an issue in this respect and where there may be slips, the requestor is open to discussion. An idea may be to establish this for a three-week or a month trial, with a followup on the final week. This should give Dmehus time to be sure he can be around and meta admins time to see if this is a drop or a stream; if it does not work out the permission expires naturally. In fact I tend to like the temporary basis most for this overall because typically the need/inspiration to actually alter the interface beyond an admin's one off initiative happens in rare bursts and a limited time in this role allows people to focus on getting certain things done as needed. But the final week mentioned above can be a permanent ratification if this temporary basis is too odd to instill into practice. --Raidarr (talk) 09:06, 22 May 2023 (UTC)

User:HeyTürkiye/Panel request for translation marking (approval, Suspended)

Could you please approve the unmarked translation change on User:HeyTürkiye/Panel? I have been waiting for a few days for the change to be approved. --Hey Türkiye Message? 21:14, 19 May 2023 (UTC)

Ping: @Agent Isai In addition; Am I eligible for me to have Autoparolled rights defined? I no longer have to go through patrol control. Hey Türkiye Message? 08:31, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
Why is it necessary to have that page translated? It's a personal page. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:34, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
That's a good point, actually. Some pages, such as draft content pages in userspace are worthy of translation while others, such as userspace templates, it doesn't make sense. This appears to be the transcluded content page for the root user page. I suppose there is a benefit to making userpages multilingual, but I generally do not think it is done with the Translate extension. Typically, users will just specify which languages they speak or know using the Babel extension and a user languages template. As well, the Translate extension doesn't work that well with transclusions, so I would suggest just creating manual language subpages if one wants to translate their userpage into multiple languages that they know. Dmehus (talk) 15:44, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
I would heavily argue against making userpages translatable. While maybe a good idea in theory, the fact that userpages are changed so often would mean that it's required to continually translate them, which would be a pain for all involved. I would also add that I definitely wouldn't want to see the translate bar above my userpage every time I visited it, and I imagine there are others that feel the same. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 16:17, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
No, you completely misunderstood this situation. Most of the time, instead of reading the pages in English, I read Turkish. This is already a completely personal page and subpage. Hey Türkiye Message? 16:33, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
I wanted to use the translation feature to read sometimes in English and sometimes in Turkish. Hey Türkiye Message? 16:34, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
You can not accept it if you want, it's fine for me, but I want to read my page in 2 languages for advantage. Hey Türkiye Message? 16:37, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
How frequently do you edit your user page? If you're editing it daily, I would have concerns, both in terms of volunteer capacity to review the translations and mark the userpage every day but also in terms of load impacts on the jobrunner. If, on the other hand, your edits to your user page are infrequent (i.e., once a month or less), I would think you've articulated a reasonable-ish use case wanting to be able to navigate to the Turkish language subpage when you follow links to your user page in the Turkish language and, conversely, to following to the English main page when following links in English. Dmehus (talk) 16:42, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
I will not send translation requests for the permanent page Dmehus. I can already overwrite the translation. (title etc.) That's why I will not torture our esteemed managers with tiring translation requests. Hey Türkiye Message? 16:46, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm just conferring with a Meta administrator if they have any objections to this in light of your added information. Dmehus (talk) 16:48, 20 May 2023 (UTC)
I have suspended the autoparolled request. I did not provide information. Hey Türkiye Message? 13:23, 22 May 2023 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── HeyTürkiye, I am generally of the same view as Reception123 that your indicated reason for wanting to mark that userspace subpage for translation is marginal; nonetheless, since you have indicated it will be minimally edited and is intended to correctly display the appropriate language (whether you are in en-us or en-tr mode, there is, nonetheless, a use case here—even if it is, as I say, a marginal one. So, after conferring with Reception123 on this, we agree on marking the subpage for translation, with two conditions. First, it must not cause any technical problems (i.e., related to server resource usage/load, transclusion weirdness, etc.). Second, it must not be frequently edited. That is to say, we will not consider requests to re-mark it for translation at an interval greater than once every 30-90 calendar days. Should those conditions be broken, any administrator should feel free to delete the translation subpages and remove it from the translation system. Accordingly, this is  conditionally done. Dmehus (talk) 01:51, 22 May 2023 (UTC)

Response Response @Dmehus, Reception123 Your terms are also suitable and reasonable for me. Thank you for confirming the translation. In fact, text, images, titles, etc. can be created on top of the translation, even without marking the translation. I don't think I'm going to make too many requests. In addition; Due to my busy personal life, I will not be in the Meta these days. Thank you for making me conditional. Hey Türkiye Message? 13:17, 22 May 2023 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Tag to active administrator: @Agent Isai, I think RfC will take a long time to vote. Can you define autopatrolled rights for me? Hey Türkiye Message? 20:05, 25 May 2023 (UTC)

Volunteers for Meta Bureaucrat position

The thread just above this thread has lead me to the realization that since the departure of one of the two bureaucrats there is currently only one Meta bureaucrat. While it is completely true and accurate to argue that the bureaucrat rule is very minimal to the functioning of Meta it does have some important attributes and particularly the authority to close RfCs pertaining to Meta. This is not meant to question anyone personally and I do not think that it is a very big issue but in order to be able to have another "check and balance" other than the community I think it would be advisable if someone who is currently an administrator would volunteer for Meta bureaucrat in order for there to be two and I recommend that someone takes this up. I did not nominate any particular person because I did not wish to be presumptuous and make a nomination for a person who does not wish to have the role for any reason. DeeM28 (talk) 13:35, 25 May 2023 (UTC)

An idea that has been floated around is abolishing Meta bureaucrat and assigning its rights and responsibilities to Stewards. Thinking about it, no non-Steward has ever been bureaucrat so perhaps it might make sense. As its job is very minimal and has been described as the "most boring role on Meta", it might make sense to just merge it with Stewards as they already handle things like right assignments, RfC closures, etc. Agent Isai Talk to me! 13:39, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
Over time I have noticed that there are some people who would prefer what you suggest while others are more adamant that Meta should be its own separate wiki without undue interference by global groups such as Stewards and Global Sysops. Recently of course Global Sysops have obtained more authority to intervene on Meta in case there is no administrator available. What I propose as a compromise would be to follow a similar line and to more clearly allow Stewards to take actions on Meta and even the ability to overturn the actions of local bureaucrats if they are egregiously wrong but not go so far as to abolish the entire group and have no more directly elected users and give all powers to Stewards. In practice it makes no difference but there may be a time in the future where these groups will no longer be held by the same users which of course is ideal for more accountability. DeeM28 (talk) 15:23, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
As an administrative wiki for the platform I'm tempted by the idea of merging the utility of meta bureaucrat into stewardship and would encourage this be offered as an option in a local RfC to be considered. I believe Stewards may already be solicited to cover in case of absence or if an issue precludes Reception from reasonably handling something in his capacity, as part of the global Steward function. But this is not ideal, there should be a merge or the role should be staffed appropriately. I believe the right number here is three meta bureaucrats as a slightly future-proofing balance. I would personally urge Void and Agent Isai to consider this capacity, I would be willing to support/nominate either directly from the meta admin pool. I think there are more options if we look past meta admins into 'trusted stakeholder' community members, but without them becoming admins as well and accounting for activity issues this can quickly become messy.
To me this thread raises raise another question, broader to meta adminship and Miraheze volunteering. Right now meta admins fall in two groups. First group: deep platform volunteers who already have a plethora of responsibilities. These include Void, Reception, Agent, and technically Universal Omega despite his partial exit and recent apathy. Going by your suggestion, these users save Reception are the only ones who would realistically 'rise up' to bureaucracy. Going by the above subtopic, these groups would further centralize into the same core of users. Second group: the "independent" meta admins with few other responsibilities. Remaining these are Zppix and MrJaroslavik, both facing requests for removal and lacking odds in their favor. This status quo is natural because of meta's intrinsic relationship with running the platform as a whole, but to some it may be concerning how few effective meta admins exist and how they are already tied to global responsibilities.
What I would suggest is that this discussion or a subsequent one shift to the state of meta adminship in general. I find that the numbers are dwindling and fresh blood is hard to come by. We may wish to see other users rise to the mantle of adminship, probably not many as the need is not high, but there is need for trusted but also somewhat newer users to take the mantle or at least be able to consider a more active role. The "core volunteers" are few and always hurting for members. Some users find it difficult to enter because of broader issues with their newness, their situation handling, familiarity with Miraheze and practice, competence etc. There is a small list of users who a) have participated recently, b) are established in the Meta community and c) have help built the content of Meta, substantively participated in RfCs (beyond a minimal or unexplained vote) or provided support. Excluding current admins. I mark * for users who have participated recently but have clear activity concerns or arguably don't quite fit a/b/c that would draw from a candidacy.
Pulling from the active users list these are: BrandonWM, Bukkit*, Collei, Commetian Empire, DeeM28, HeartsDo*, DarkMatterMan*, Collei, Dmehus*, Globe, HeyTürkiye, KatozzKita, MacFan4000, NotAracham, No se, OrangeStar, Redmin, Raidarr, Tali64³, Ugochimobi*, and 小美粉粉*. I apologize if I missed anyone who should be here.
This list represents the current "meta community" in a nutshell. Others such as Dross, Hypercane John etc are notably parts of it but I would label them as inactive at this time. I say 'active' generously as there are unmarked users listed who are also more cyclic in activity which could somewhat hinder their volunteering efforts. This is the effective list you have to work with for volunteering to administer meta, overlapping with the theoretical list of users who could put themselves out for other roles. This does not account for any other concern that may make candidacy inadvisable. Frankly I don't think the meta community well represents the true global community of the platform, another issue I would posit but for another time. This is a rabbit hole I would like to explore probably through the Meta Community portal or Community noticeboard. Apologies for somewhat hijacking this conversation with a broader subject, but I think it is intrinsically relevant to the meta bureaucrat question. --Raidarr (talk) 16:30, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
A fun previously-unnoticed tidbit that was also pointed out in discussions elsewhere: Only Meta Admins are eligible for Meta Bureaucrat, so there's a double-challenge in the pipeline to expand the ranks of Meta Bureaucrats. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 18:10, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
 Non-Steward/Non-Admin Comment The fact that the number of Bureaucrats in Meta Wiki is only 1 and that volunteers are needed really makes me think a lot. As I am active in the community, especially as a steward, and as a user who fulfils all options A), B) and C), I could apply for the shortage, but the needs do not meet this. If I were an administrator, I would choose NotAracham and Agent Isai, because they are very familiar with English Wikipedia and Consensus. A bureaucrat needs to have a good command of consensus, so people (or rather admins) could nominate themselves/others for bureaucrat. (If there is no consensus rule, etc.) I hope someone will nominate for bureaucrat, because we need consensus admins very much. Hey Türkiye Message? 18:29, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
@Raidarr: Is that list of people people you would consider to be competent Meta administrators, or simply people that contribute to Meta? BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 22:44, 25 May 2023 (UTC)
Based on side conversations, it's a simple list of active users who have done edits within x days and should not be taken as an endorsement or assessment of competency (either good or bad). --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 02:42, 26 May 2023 (UTC)
NotAracham: Got it. Was attempting to clarify, on first read I took it as "a list of users who could be nominated for Meta adminship", but I figured that couldn't be the case (or at least all of it) as it's too large haha. Thanks for clarifying. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 03:05, 26 May 2023 (UTC)

Altcyclopedia Admin Request

Hello. I used to operate the ManiacACS account, and I'm the same person. Tonight, I had problems accessing my former account, as my password all of a sudden, was incorrect, and I tried to send a request to change it, all to no avail.

Another Step to Save Miraheze 2: A Compromise

Okay… I have a new idea that would probably benefit us all.

The plan, is that instead of shutting down and erasing the dormant wikis, what we would rather have instead, is a special, pecking order-like system that shows how much the wikis have been active, and if the dormant wikis have met their deadlines, the more costly resources used by those wikis (except the templates like character templates) will be limited down/taken away, UNTIL the wikis get more active again in another capacity, like through wiki adopters. In short, those effects will be conditional whenever it comes to the costly elements.

I sincerely hope this will be helpful, because I do recognize that Miraheze doesn’t want any sort of advertising within their stead, as it would prove problematic.

You guys are welcome to take this idea into consideration and how this can be implemented, and can be changed to fit your needs. Many thanks. ToxicHolyGrenade (talk) 18:29, 11 November 2023 (UTC)

Hi, I’ve already replied to your message on the other page, moving discussion venues will not change the stance of the board that will gain control over the platform once the transfer is complete.
