    Anyone caring about Category:Deletion requests?

    Hello. Since your decision to deprive volunteers of admin rights on this site there's 1,000+ deletion requests stagnated at Category:Deletion requests. Please have a look at those or allow again users to hold administrator rights again for maintenance purposes. Thanks. --MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:14, 12 July 2016 (UTC) (ping to @MZMcBride so he can advice if this is the appropriate place)Reply[reply]

    Broken redirects

    I'm tagging for deletion using a standard pywikibot script ~250 pages for deletion. Sorry for the flood at recent changes. Regards, --MarcoAurelio (talk) 00:07, 11 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Finished. Now someone has to delete those. Regards, --MarcoAurelio (talk) 00:14, 11 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    How to request editor rights

    The account policy states that only staff, GS and stewards gain the editor rights? But how can normal users request that? Thingofme (talk) 08:51, 6 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    @Thingofme: According to Wikimedia:Accounts policy, editor permissions are only given to approved staff or contractors for work-related purposes. Regards, - MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:17, 7 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Does GS hold the editor rights or this wiki separate Global sysops (volunteers) and local sysop (staff) about editing of this wiki? Thingofme (talk) 01:41, 28 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Please change the last line to "Stewards and global sysops have administrator rights on this wiki for the purpose of anti-vandalism and they may not use administrative tools for controversial purposes." Thingofme (talk) 12:25, 25 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
