Please remove my autopatrol flag[edit]

I don't know what your purpose is, but please remove it immediately and don't continue to harass me, thank you. --轻语者 (talk) 09:14, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

@轻语者: Gave you the right since you know what you're doing and it reduces the amount of unpatrolled edits, but, as you wish. Minorax (talk) 09:16, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
我还以为只有中文维基才会存在尸位素餐的情况。轻语者 (talk) 09:21, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
@轻语者: 您是什么意思?说我白吃饭不做事?Minorax (talk) 10:00, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
请接受我的道歉,很抱歉让您对号入座了。事实上我一直把您当作尊敬的前辈,认为您是一名优秀的用户,并在您身上学习了很多东西。譬如commons上的版权问题。我说出上面的话是因为想到这个维基上管理员(包括GS)的数量和大型维基差不了多少,活跃度对比其他维基相对很低了,仍需要这种方法来减少管理员工作的积压。这让我想起中维的现状所以才说出上面的话。希望您能原谅我。另外,我知道harass有点粗鲁,但我想不到如何在英语里更委婉说“请不要再打扰我”。最近发生了一些事情让我不想再被干扰。再次向您道歉。轻语者 (talk) 10:55, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

About my admin rights request[edit]

Hello

My name is Esio in the Gentoo wiki: wiki.installgen (remove this space) too.com/wiki/User:Esio

A user se7en1 is threatening to ban me because I am removing racist wiki posts (from some really really pathetic people, if you can believe some people do exist in this world) and I would like to get admin rights so I can stop that and continue my work. My request here was deleted, says there is no such user, so can you tell me how I can become an admin on the Gentoo wiki? Thank you.

I believe Gentoo wiki is not a WMF wiki and I can't do anything about it there. You should request for rights on that wiki itself. Furthermore, the account that requested for admin rights is not registered here. Minorax (talk) 13:00, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
My bad on deleting the request page, seems like the problem was with the capitalisation of the page. I can undelete it but since the wiki stated isn't "controlled" here, I see no point doing so. Minorax (talk) 14:57, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Can you undelete the request page anyways? I wrote the text for the reasons why I wanted admit rights but I did not copy and paste it down on my notepad (as I didn't know my request would be deleted), it would help me a lot since I won't have to rethink and rewrite it for the next person I will ask for admin right. Thank you.

Done. Let me know when you finish copying it. Minorax (talk) 15:05, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Copied. Thanks again.

One more thing, I am not familiar with how wiki's work (except maybe a little about Wikipedia), can you tell me where on the gentoo wiki wiki.install (remove space) gentoo.com/wiki/Main_Page do I go to ask for admin rights? I thought it was here on this site so that is why I made the request here, but it turns out here is not the right place.

In short, I don’t know. However, you can try asking the bureaucrats listed in Special:Listusers/bureaucrat (copy this) on that wiki. Minorax (talk) 02:01, 23 February 2020 (UTC)


Hello, could you please undelete my post? If there are any issues, I would change what is needed. I am new here and I am trying to complete a homework for a class I am taking.

Abuse Filter #83[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your work on mediawiki.org. I've noticed Special:AbuseFilter/83 and wanted to discuss a couple of things with you. 1) Why is it hidden? It seems like a pretty simple filter to me. 2) Isn't this something that should've been taken care of by a discussion on Project:Requests and a site config change? Essentially it's about taking createpage away from * and users and giving it to autoconfirmed, isn't it? --Krenair (talkcontribs) 19:22, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

@Krenair: I’ve changed it to tag only and unhide it. It was actually meant for IPs and wasn’t expecting it to be this effective. Minorax (talk) 01:40, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Undelete My Post (PtoroM)[edit]

Hello, I would like to ask you if you could undelete my post so I can fix whatever is wrong with it, please? I am new here and I am trying to complete a homework for a class I am taking. I spent an entire day doing my homework. If I can't do it here, then I will submit a word document to my class.

This wiki is not a place for your class, I believe you’ve been warned by the abusefilter when you tried to create the page. Secondly, it seems like there are several users who have been trying to create, more or less, the same article. If it’s you, I’d suggest that you stop creating new accounts just to try to create the page. I’ll undelete it and place it at User:PtoroM/sandbox, I can’t make sure if any other admins are going to delete it but if they do, don’t create it again. Minorax (talk) 17:14, 17 March 2020 (UTC)


I understand. I have not created more than one article. It is more likely that my other classmates did the same because our instructor gave us an example of how to create a wiki and showed us all this website. I will inform my instructor about this. Thank you very much for clarifying that. I will not post it here. I just need the post to be undeleted to complete my homework elsewhere. Thank you.

Thank you[edit]

Thank you very much for adding me to Autopatrollers' group.--Path slopu (talk) 06:16, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

No problem :) --Minorax (talk) 13:39, 9 May 2020 (UTC)
