Setup of WAM 2017

Hi, I'm the coordinator of Wikipedia Asian Month 2017. Addis can't access the site due to various reasons. And the event has started. So I would like to some assitance from sysop for putting up central notice for participating countries / wikiprojects. To do so, I need a campaign which basically is the same as previous one that Addis requested. And how could I provide you the text?--Fantasticfears (talk) 22:11, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

For the record, the request was submitted and I am taking care of it. --Base (talk) 10:50, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Correction in central notice

Hi I have translated the central notice in proper Marathi (Mr) language. The current version has no proper grammar as well as no proper link. I request it to be changed as per the translation here. --Tiven2240 (talk) 07:48, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Addis forgot to publish the corrected links. For now I have disabled the banner, I have published the translations, but there is also a CSS issue Seddon_ is going to fix. --Base (talk) 11:53, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

History merge for my user page and user talk page.

Can I have the original (now deleted) versions of my user page and user talk page history merged? Not to delete the current version but simply to have the old histoirs merged so at least I would be the original creator. --Donald Trung (Talk 🤳🏻) (My global lock 😒🌏🔒) (My global unlock 😄🌏🔓) 10:54, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Okay. Done by Base & me. Matiia (talk) 00:38, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Request for MassMessage to be sent

Could someone please notify all the village pumps (list at Distribution list/Global message delivery) about the discussion at Requests for comment/Improvement of global ban policy? --Rschen7754 01:51, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

@Rschen7754: Might be worthwhile crafting a message on the RFC's talk page that we can use, or as a subpage to the discussion so it sits as a record.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:41, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
I think it can be pretty simple, such as: "Some changes to the community global ban policy have been proposed. Your comments are welcome at m:Requests for comment/Improvement of global ban policy." --Rschen7754 03:12, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
Could someone please send this message? --Rschen7754 20:25, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
Done. Matiia (talk) 00:35, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Requesting close of an RfC

This is just a request for an admin to close Requests for comment/Interlinking of accounts involved with paid editing to decrease impersonation which has been open since September 20, 2017. It has been widely advertised and it looks like everybody who is interested has put in their !vote and comments. Smallbones (talk) 20:51, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Request for translation admin

I would like to translate Wikimedia Ghana User Group and its subpages into German. I already asked the Social Media Manager of the User Group (User:Owula kpakpo) for permission, which he granted. I don't manage to install the extension for marking pages for translation on my systems, that's why I am asking here. Thank you very much in advance. --Gereon K. (talk) 18:40, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the request and we hope this would go in a long way in helping our User group. Thanks again. Gereon K. --Owula kpakpo (talk) 15:50, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Block of User:ShreCk

Hi everyone, User:ShreCk, former president of Wikimedia France who left the movement very publicly months ago, made yet another derogatory and false claim about me here. It has been months, on social media, on mailing-lists, on actual mail sent to my home, in the press. This has to stop. Please make at least meta a safe space. Léna (talk) 22:40, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi there,
I never said that I was leaving the movement. I resigned from my WMFr Board position.
About the reason of this request, your name is not written in any question from myself on meta. I have personally experienced your false statements since february 2017 (to the WMF, on social media, ...), so I find it incredible that you allow yourself such a request here. You said a few weeks ago on Twitter that you had not received anything (e-mail, mail), you're now claiming the opposite. Thank you for illustrating incoherent posture. Emeric Vallespi (talk) 19:54, 22 November 2017 (UTC).
  Not done there is nothing requiring a block on that page. I ask both parties to be cognisant of reputation, and civil discourse, and edit accordingly.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:59, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
