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]

Spamming user

Special:Contribs/Kemdanangdactriveda has spammed a certain talk page and their userpage with phone numbers, etc. I tagged one for speedy deletion, but couldn't tag the userpage as abuse filter disallowed me. Someone please fix this. All of their edits to enwiki and commons are already reverted. Thank you. CX Zoom (talk) 12:04, 18 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't know if anyone even watches this page. So pinging you @GVarnum-WMF as you're an admin and I saw you edit today in Special:RecentChanges. Thanks! CX Zoom (talk) 12:08, 18 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for the information globally banned and vandalism I believe cleaned up (thanks to your help). Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 01:27, 19 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Capitalization in Legal Fees Assistance Program

Hi there! Legal Fees Assistance Program mentions "Checkuser", but it should be changed to "CheckUser" per the page the program links to. Thanks! EpicPupper (talk) 17:38, 7 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Done Thanks. :) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 22:22, 7 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
