This noticeboard is for anything that requires administrator intervention on Meta only (anything related to global policies, global groups, or in some way involves other Miraheze wikis should be discussed at the Community portal)

On the Meta Administrators' noticeboard, you can request:

  • A Meta administrator to warn or sanction a blatantly disruptive or spam-only account (on Meta). For blatant cross-wiki disruption, vandalism only, or spam only accounts, please see Steward requests/Global.
  • User group permissions that administrators' may grant at their discretion (inclusive of patroller, translator, or interface administrator) to help with certain tasks (also on Meta only). Keep in mind these are discretionary appointments, but you should have a clear need for the rights and not merely be collecting hats.

If you would like to request:

Deletion of CAT:Pagine utente

I would like to request the deletion of Category:Pagine utente. The utility of the categories listing user pages is low (these can be referenced from special pages), and it is unlikely that this category in Italian has much chance of being used. --1108-Kiju/Talk 18:19, 28 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I can't make a wiki with "wikis" as its subdomain?

I am creating a wiki called the Wiki Wiki, which is all about wikis, and I chose "wikis" for the subdomain. For some reason it isn't working? Can you help please? Thanks! QUEST146 (talk) 15:44, 9 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It might be because the subdomain "wiki" is too vague. I don't know if this will work, but you could try the subdomain "wiki of wikis". I can't remember if you can have spaces in a subdomain. Commetian Empire (talk) 16:22, 9 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

IP address that keeps vandalizing User talk pages

As SuperStreetKombat said on my Usertalk page, there has been a IP address that has been obsessing over Qualipedia. This IP has apparently been doing this for a while. Please block it. IP address: 78.208.206.125 Commetian Empire (Talk°•◇•°CentralAuth) 21:51, 12 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This person doesn't make an account on purpose since it would be easier to combat, every time one IP gets blocked he jumps to another on the same IP range, and that range doesn't belong to VPN/proxy services which Miraheze usually blocks. Legroom (talk) 19:48, 13 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reinstatement of permissions after revocation of permissions due to Inactivity

I was active as a wiki author and translation manager about 2-3 years ago, but have since been inactive and had my permissions revoked. Now that I have enough leisure time to come back here, I would like to ask for my permissions to be reinstated, but is it necessary to take the new appointment procedure by RfP in these two permissions? Waki285(talk|contrib|log|CA|Target) 01:41, 22 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Waki285: Welcome back, The wiki creator permission is must be requested on the RfP. Translation administrators are granted at the discretion of the Meta administrator. 1108-Kiju/Talk 09:26, 24 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deletion of an RfC

Hello, I would like my draft RfC (Requests for Comment/Change to CentralAuth) to be deleted. As BrandonWM and NotAracham explained, Miraheze cannot change the appearance of CentralAuth. Since we can't follow through with what the RfC says, there is no point in having it. Commetian Empire (Talk°•◇•°CentralAuth) 16:56, 27 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for reinstatement

I'd like to request reinstatement of my permissions pre-resignation, which is patroller. I'd also like to request rollbacker in order to help with vandalism and other activity. The use cases are the same: to patrol Miraheze Meta for vandalism and to clear spam from the platform. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 14:51, 2 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As a bit of further evidence for use case, see this diff, this diff, and this diff. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 17:03, 2 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Jph2 for Autopatrolled

I would prefer not to patrol the edits made by Jph2. He has demonstrated a level of proficiency that suggests less oversight is required. I kindly request that he be granted the autopatrolled bit. Thank you. --  Joseph  TB  CT  CA  09:36, 3 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Legroom - request for Translator role

My main contribution on Meta are translation of pages to Russian, and I've been doing that since 2022. Russian is my native language, and I consider my level of English good enough to work with such role. I have read usage documentation of Translate extension. Legroom (talk) 17:25, 23 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  1.  Done. I know Legroom well from Discord and it's clear to me that he's competent in both languages. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:41, 23 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

MacFan4000 - Request for translator

While I don't ever translate pages into other languages, I did make fair use of the pagetranslation right. Therefore, I'm requesting translator rights. Also to note, translationadmin contained a few other translate extension rights that I think should be added to translator. (pagelang, translate-import, translate-manage) MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 17:28, 23 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  1. Thanks for telling me about the other rights, I'll assign them via ManageWiki. I'm not sure whether there would be a need to use those permissions without actually translating anymore given that only very few high traffic pages will be translated in the future. Either way, I'm not sure how I'd be able to grant since the policy requires Babel 3 in another target language. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:41, 23 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1108-Kiju - request for translator

I have been working on the translation since March 2022, would like to continue this work. I am a native speaker of Japanese, can read and write English well enough. best regards.

P.S. Steward's global permissions include translate, but of course I don't think this is within the scope of stewardship, so I am requesting it. --1108-Kiju/Talk 00:23, 24 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

HanTheGene - request for translator

I've been translating pages into Dutch and would like to keep doing so. I have read the documentation for the translation extension.

铁桶 - request for translator

I am a native speaker of Chinese, and my proficiency in English is equivalent to Babel level 3. I have been translating pages into Chinese on Miraheze Meta since 2020, and I have also been translating Miraheze's projects into Chinese on translatewiki.net. As a volunteer, I have been translating technical documents, help pages, staff blogs and global policies into Chinese on Fandom for many years. I have read MediaWiki's documentation for using the Translate extension and understand how to prepare a page for translation. The Chinese translation documents on Miraheze Meta need to be cleaned up, and I hope I can clean them up after I get the right.--铁桶 (Talk) 06:30, 30 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Caimántriste - request for translator

I would like to request the translator user right to translate pages into Spanish, and update them in that language.

Kind request to be appointed as a translator

This is a kind request to be appointed as a translator. To the best of my knowledge and understanding, I meet all the criteria that have been set so far in order to translate pages from English to Greek (e.g., en-N, target language: el-N). Feel free to check the user contributions that I had on Meta so far. Happy to provide more information, if need be. Kourouklides (talk) 06:42, 2 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request translator permissions

Hi! I'd like to be assigned translator permissions.

I am native in Hebrew and fully fluent in English (and speak a few other languages as well, but none to the level where I can translate just yet).

I'll mostly be translating banners (as I'm more likely to see those in Wikis I contribute to) but open to translate essentially anything that's marked for translation. //Talya - Let's talk// 16:59, 3 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Before being able to approve this, I would invite you to confirm that you have read Meta:Translators, and more specifically this section since you saw you would like to translate anything marked as translation but in fact that isn't allowed by the current policy. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:17, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have and I have. As mentioned I am most likely to translate the donate and fundraiser banners, as those pop up cross-wiki, but you can be sure I will also tackle other pages. //Talya - Let's talk// 10:17, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pisces - requesting Translator permission

I think it's best to have someone to proofreading these stuffs.

Request for Translator Right

Hi Admins,

I am Khattab Hasan. I frequently translate banners and other pages into Bengali on Miraheze Meta. While working on the latest banner, I noticed it requires Translator User Right. I'm confident in my ability to handle this translation effectively, given my experience and understanding of the platform.

If possible, I would like to request Translator User Right to contribute to this and future translation projects.

Thank you for your time and consideration. খাত্তাব হাসান (talk) 19:35, 7 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi there - before anything can be finalized, can you confirm you've read and will adhere to Meta:Translators? Could you also clarify which languages you are fluent in, and which pages you plan to regularly translate? Thank you.
