"2014 and beyond in film" redirect on en.Wikipedia

Status:    Done

Consensus at w:Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2015 April 26#201x and beyond in film was to delete this redirect and some of its counterparts. I was able to delete all but this one, which apparently has over 5000 revisions. --BDD (talk) 13:58, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

User pages deletion

Status:    Done

I have a user page on more than a dozen projects, which I would like to see deleted in order to enable the Global user page. I understand that this is not an emergency and that most of the projects actually have local communities, but at the same time, due to the sheer number of projects and because deletion is handled so very different on each of the projects, it would make it so much easier for me if a steward would do me the favor of deleting those pages. The pages are listed here. --denny (talk) 18:20, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Denny. Pathoschild runs a script that allows cross-wiki page deletions. Please post your request at Synchbot and he'll delete all your userpages for you. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio 14:00, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, MarcoAurelio! I will do so. This request can thus be closed. --denny (talk) 16:27, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Request for page deletion

Status:    Done

This page on Burmese wiki has been nominated for speedy deletion since 16 March 2015. Local admins of Burmese wiki are less active, and that page has frequently edited by anonymous users and removed deletion mark. Please take action on this. NinjaStrikers « » 12:07, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I meant to respond earlier. This was a local block deliberately applied by the community as an opt out so we aren't in a position to reverse it (at least not without asking nicely first). QuiteUnusual (talk) 17:11, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
For the record, the SUL notifications will override any blocks, protection, AbuseFilter rules, etc. Normal user-controlled MassMessages do not. Legoktm (talk) 17:23, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Even better. Account is also now unblocked. --Glaisher (talk) 11:53, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Request for comment

Status:    Not done

Dear stewards, I am sorry writing here as I think this is not a propper place, but I don't know where to place it else. I would like to know an opinion of experienced users like you, stewards about the personal data issue that happened on Czech projects. The short and general description of the case is at Wikimedia Forum#Using_personal_data_of_a_Wikimedian_to_publish_information_about_namesakes. Thanks and sorry again for disturbing. --Okino (talk) 17:39, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Already done. Ruslik (talk) 21:06, 29 May 2015 (UTC), abusement of the sysop authorization and instant deleting of a discussion page about a former article erased improperly

( I am not sure, if I correctly positioned my demand in the right page. Just help me to relocate it. However, I think it is a global issue relating to the steward's corcern).

I struggled for creating an article for a credible Turkish Scholar "celalettin vatandaş", but without considering enough, Turkish member kibele proposed it to be deleted. Voting and the deletion of the logs of discussion of voting within just 36 hours,is another matter. It was about the general problem of pressure and harrassment against new members and the problem of cencorship against new articles in, becuse of power struggle and biased manner of Turkish sysops. I begun a RFC page about this issue.

The new matter is about my new attempt to create a discussion page for "Celalettin vatandaş". The discussion content was netirely new and it was an invite for users, to discuss the deleting of the article and related general problems. However, the user "Eldarion" instantly deleted the discussion page. This is absolutely abusement of personel authorization. The member even tolarate the freedom of speech and proposal of ideas. This user even reject to listen others. What about our wiki ideals?

Please corcern the issue and to the problems in Turkish wiki.Okurogluselo (talk) 11:10, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Lost Password

Status:    Cannot be undertaken

I have these accounts, in en:wiki, in es:wiki, and also one in Commons I want to have a single user login (because of this, but the problem is that I don't remember my passwords and I don't have email address recorded to get new passwords. So, I want to know the procedure to get new passwords in this case. -- 17:10, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi, we do that only in very few cases manually. For that to happen you have to clearly proof that these accounts belong to you. That can for example be done via a committed identity (should you have ever done that) or via a clear link from that account to another account that you have access to. Can you provide anything like that or anything else you consider sufficent? - Hoo man (talk) 18:28, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

--مستخدم:ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 08:18, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

If there are local admins in the project, please mark them for deletion there so local admins can handle them. --Stryn (talk) 08:40, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

I want to delete many pages at one time, and administrators inactive in the sister projects of Arabic Wikipedia --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 07:29, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Except if you are / become a local admin, you can't delete pages. --MF-W 23:48, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
MF-W, you might want to clarify your remark. On first glance, it doesn't seem to directly address this user's problem. And مستخدم:ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2, you might need to clarify some things, as well: you are posting from an account that has been blocked indefinitely on arwiki, apparently as part of a move from a "temporary account" (back in 2011) to another one. ([16] [17]) Is this why you are posting this request here, because you can't post on the Arabic Wikipedia? But even if that is the case, why have you not posted this request from that "new" account, which seems to own the pages now? (The pages in question are in userspace, as subpages of ar:مستخدم:ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل.) That account does not appear to be blocked (although it has seen no edits since August 2014). (Note: I am not a steward, nor even an admin. I'm just watching this page.) - dcljr (talk) 05:51, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

I am on leave from Arabic Wikipedia, and I want to delete some of my pages and create pages on meta to be global.thanks --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 07:54, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

OK, but whatever admin/steward deletes the Arabic Wikipedia pages, they will probably want to get the request from the user account that actually owns the pages. You still have a a global account under that username, so you probably should post the request about those Arabic Wikipedia pages from that account. (I'm going to stop saying "Arabic" every time now.) Since you won't post on Wikipedia, and the stewards here at Meta don't want to delete pages on that wiki, you seem to have only one choice left: find a Wikipedia admin who also has an account on another wiki and post your request on that other wiki. Now, User:Ciphers is an admin on Wikibooks, Wikiquote, Wikisource (where your user page has already been deleted), and Wikiversity, but not Wikipedia. Still, Ciphers seems to be relatively active (with edits to Wikisource and Wikipedia in the last couple of months), so a talk page message to that user on Wikisource might get you results. As for Wikipedia, User:محمد عصام is an admin on both Wikisource and Wikipedia (and has edited both Wikisource and Meta several times in the last couple of months), so you can leave a message to that user about your Wikipedia pages. (Both of these Wikisource admins have the "Email this user" feature enabled, as well.) Good luck! - dcljr (talk) 05:46, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Happy to help on any local project I'm an admin on. Please request the deletion using the proper templates or on my talk page. Thanks for dealing with this, dcljr! --Ciphers (talk) 18:07, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
@Dcljr: Can request be closed? If so please update the status. --Glaisher (talk) 11:53, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
I have no idea. @Ciphers:? @ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2:? All but one of the WP pages listed at the top of this section have been (moved and) deleted. I don't know about the user's pages in the other projects, since they were not listed here. I would say this particular discussion can be marked as closed, since the user was told a way of getting the request fulfilled, whether it actually was or not. (But since I'm not an admin, I'll let you change the status.) - dcljr (talk) 18:26, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

  Closed If there is anything else to be done then please tag the page that are yours with {{delete}} and submit a new request. Properly tagging pages for deletion allows for admins to act, and to know that the right person is making the request.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:19, 31 May 2015 (UTC)


Status:    Locally handled
