Marking pages for translation

Hi. Can Wikimedia URL Shortener please be marked for translation again? I've made some changes that should propagate to other languages. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 08:13, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Report concerning User:Meta landwhaler

Meta landwhaler (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log • GUC)Reasons: Obvious sockpuppet of a troll who has been attacking me before on English Wikipedia and has now moved here.

I have blocked them from editing your user talk page. We try not to feed trolls.  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:27, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Report concerning User:Lifarsi

Lifarsi (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log • GUC)Reasons: See this rant full of personal attacks. Vachovec1 (talk) 21:50, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

I honestly hope that this report sees action. It's okay for users to have respectful disagreements with the azwiki admins, and I honestly could not fault any if some of the block users were even resentful towards them. However, this is borderline on cross-wiki harassment and needs to be stopped. –MJLTalk 04:04, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Gosh, just rereading the insensate this user posted just gets me so angry. This and this... are reluctantly fine. Let's say the user was blowing off steam.. okay, alright. I mean, I have never made a statement saying literally anyone ...had opportunity in their hands... would have sucked the blood of their nation... nor personally accused anyone on wiki of running the site as a literal dictatorship where a cabal of vandals who all know each other in real life prolong discussions needlessly just to delete the pages they don't like.. However, the user only escalated from there. It was at that point I thought of filing this myself, but I didn't think I gave the user enough WP:ROPE. I'm honestly just appalled at this point by the latest outburst. It's pathetic, and clearly leaving this alone doesn't work. –MJLTalk 04:20, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
I don't want this to turn into a vote, but I do   Support a block. That's the problem on Meta (and on enwiki): just because it's a vote or whatever doesn't give free license to make personal attacks. --Rschen7754 05:01, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
They have been given ample forum to air their views, then grievances and then attacks on azwiki users. I think the best plan is to topic ban with a partial block on that azwiki RFC page and talk. If they bring it elsewhere, it can well be expanded or a complete block which I hope they appreciate it will be a bad experience. --Cohaf (talk) 05:38, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Blocked for a day and warned. – Ajraddatz (talk) 06:13, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Can I suggest to complainants that if you are wishing for others to be respectful of them, that you would hate a block to be the first level response to you. We should lead by example, and we should use the power of discourse on a user's talk page before the stick comes out. Once the stick comes out, it is a matter of hitting, just with differing force.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:08, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Request for sending a mass message

Hi. A few days ago I came across Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Watchlists/Revive Crosswatch tool, and wrote a user script, m:User:DannyS712/Watchlist.js, that advances the goal of the request by simplifying accessing watchlists for different wikis. I would like to send out a message to the people who contributed to that discussion.

Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 05:52, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Page for translation

What is the best way to internationalize Template:Committees ? It’s been used for years, and as I see groups are reorganized into Groups sub committees, wonder if it’s best to leave it in en only or not? --Omotecho (talk) 19:51, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Mark Template:RF and Template:Projects for translation

DannyS712 and I have removed links to the defunct requests for logos from these two templates, but the changes aren't showing up on pages that use them because our changes haven't been marked for translation. * Pppery * has returned 23:47, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

  Done  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:01, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
To note that I am unaware of any special page that identifies pages marked for translation and needing further pushes to translate. So unless someone develops a template for a talk page to request an update, then we are going to need notifications here.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:08, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Avicenno: MassMessage sender

Hi. I'd like to request MassMessage sender permission because I am a membership admin for wikiproject med foundation and we have a lot of users who are on pending membership status so that I want to send them mass massage to ask them whether they want to still be members so that they should fill membership form or of they are no longer interested so that I remove their names. I need to do this mission on a regular basis for wikiproject med foundation so that this user access is important for me. regards--Avicenno (talk) 03:31, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Vandal

Please block this IP for trolling/vandalism. It's probably an LTA as well. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 01:33, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

would someone semi-block my talk page User talk:Pentachlorphenol and show the IP

@Pentachlorphenol: that address has already been blocked and globally blocked, I've added temporary semi-protection to your talk page. — xaosflux Talk 15:30, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Allowing Bakun Itzulpenak translating pages at Meta

Hello! The Basque Wikimedians User Group has hired Bakun Itzulpenak to translate the Privacy Policy into Basque, as it is a very specific text. But they can't translate it here as it says that it is only possible for autoconfirmed users:

Saving the translation failed: Note: This page has been protected so that only autoconfirmed users can edit it. The latest log entry is provided below for reference.

Can someone give them the option to translate this page? Thanks. -Theklan (talk) 09:36, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

  Comment Account Bakun Itzulpenak doesn't exist. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 10:39, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: sorry, is Bakun itzulpenak -Theklan (talk) 09:32, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
This user exists :). I'm not a meta admin, so can't really help you, I just noticed the user you mentioned doesn't exist, so I noted it publicly. I've just tested it under my non-autoconfirmed alter-ego, and yes, you're right, it's not possible to translate that page as non-autoconfirmed user. A bureaucrat can grant confirmed to fix that. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:21, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
  Done for two weeks. He'll probably be autoconfirmed much sooner than that, but just in case. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:32, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
