Page deletions on

Status:    Done

An IP,, created about 70 pages directly copied from the English Wikipedia. I marked them for deletion for the single admin to get to, except they started reverting my tags. It also is apparent that the admin has not edited in multiple months, and there's a backlog. See cbk-zam:Categoría:Maga Pagina Nominado Para Bora for the category of pages marked for deletion, and Special:Contribs/ for the pages that the IP created. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 10:04, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Same thing’s happening at pamwiki. Vermont (talk) 13:23, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Page deletions on sowiki

Status:    Done

An IP who is currently globally blocked,, created quite a few articles on sowiki and elsewhere (other ones have been dealt with) that were machine translated from English Wikipedia articles. This wasn't hard to check, especially considering they left in the [1]'s. I'm requesting a mass delete of page creations by so:Special:Contributions/ Thanks, Vermont (talk) 10:19, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Done. However, there are still many non-page creation contributions left. --Vogone (talk) 10:50, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Update sitenotice on

Status:    Done

Several years ago, when we closed strategywiki, we added a sitenotice to point to the 2016 strategy consultation. I would like to suggest that we update the sitenotice to include a link to m:Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20. However, I also think that since I've been out of the Wikimedia strategy business for almost a decade now, we should probably get Nicole to weigh in. ----Philippe (talk) 01:14, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

(Bit of side-topic but) Maybe we should allow stewards to auto-create accounts on closed projects because... if the stewards with accounts on closed wikis are gone, we have nobody with access to there. (I was unable to locally attach an account :P) — regards, Revi 09:03, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
This is not technically possible. Ruslik (talk) 20:38, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Then we should make it technically possible xD — regards, Revi 01:01, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
  Done Ruslik (talk) 20:42, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for pinging me, Philippe. I'd appreciate this update, and a link to the 2018-20 page on meta. You can even link to, as we are aiming to use this redirect for the current phase of the process. Ruslik, I am not sure if "not technically possible" is referring to the update, or the side-topic, as from what I see, the update is not "done" yet. Thanks, --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 12:33, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
I updated the sitenotice yesterday. The comment referred to giving the stewards ability to automatically create accounts on locked wikis. Ruslik (talk) 20:37, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion needed in bjn-wikipedia and cbk-zam-wikipedia

Status:    Done

Some ips have directly copied pages from enwiki. Those pages are not translated, 1 , 2, 3 and 4 are the links to those pages. They are removing deletion tags from the pages too. So, I'm requesting a mass delete of those pages. Thanks-BRP ever 14:06, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

I reported a few days ago for the same issue. I think a range block of the /20 will prevent further abuse.. Vermont (talk) 15:26, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion request at Pampanga Wikipedia

Status:    Done

Copy pasted English articles by IPs. [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], and this IP [6] removed some delete tags. Admin at is inactive. Thanks--Lam-ang (talk) 22:16, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

I recommend a global (it's happening on cbk-zam-wiki as well) block of the /19. See Special:Contributions/, who is currently globally blocked, did the same thing, as did many other IP's of that range. Also please delete all the pages here. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 22:21, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Be careful not to delete the last 3 items here.--Lam-ang (talk) 23:04, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

OAuth approval request for Wikidata Image Positions tool

Status:    Done

I wrote this tool (toolforge, source code) a few days ago, and yesterday and today I added editing support for it. I already tested it with my own account (see d:Special:History/Q4115189) and it seems to work fine. Please approve so I can announce the new feature :) --Lucas Werkmeister (talk) 14:02, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

Please remove privacy violating site CSS

Status:    Done

Hi again,

The bottom of ka:მედიავიკი:Vector.css, tries to load an external font from

@font-face {
font-family: "Super Font";
src: url("//"); 

That entire code block should be removed.

And on eu:MediaWiki:Gadget-TxikipediaTab.css, it tries to load a font from Toolforge, which isn't compliant with the Wikimedia privacy policy since it exposes user-agent information to people without NDAs:

@import url(;

That line should be removed as well.

Thanks, Legoktm (talk) 18:33, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Done - removed both. – Ajraddatz (talk) 18:52, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
