Wikipedia Asian Month 2017 officially starts!Edit

Dear WAM organizer,

I’m Erick Guan, the coordinator of WAM 2017. Welcome to Wikipedia Asian Month 2017. Here is some information about organizations of events at a national level.


The event lasts a month for the participants. As of the beginning of the event, please:

  • Invite previous participants to join. We have a template you may want to use.
  • Setup your WAM page in your local wikiproject if you haven’t done that.
  • Link your WAM page at Wikipedia Asian Month 2017. It’s important for others to understand and connect to your community! Remove the X when you done that. WAM is organized at national level. So I have to ask you to put your country in front of your name if you haven’t done that.
  • Publish a notification about WAM in site notice as well as village pump. Go public!
  • Connect with us. Generally send me an email so that we can reach you for future information!
  • Become the jury member in a campaign on Fountain which is an amazing tool for you to supervise participants’ articles. If you don’t have the campaign set up, please contact us! And put a link to your community’s campaign page for participants’ navigation.
  • Organize a off-site editathon event. A coffee bar, internet and laptops. Though it’s optional. If you want to do that, please contact me.

In the following days, you should answer the questions from your community and supervise the submissions. Hope you have fun!

Interesting articlesEdit

Have some interesting articles in your mind or from community? Drop us a line so that we can exchange the information to other communities.

Looking for helpEdit

At all times, please send me an email at (talk) 23:01, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Military history user group titleEdit

Greetings, firstly thanks for your support and feedback to the proposal to form a user group for military historians of Wikipedia. As there is enough support for the proposal, it is time to choose a title, and go ahead. Please vote at Talk:Discussion to incubate a user group for Wikipedia Military Historians#Group name. Regards, Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talkmail) 11:45, 2 January 2018 (UTC)


Greetings, Ney. Thank you very much for flagging yourself as a translator fromm Japanese. My team and I are very thankful for that. It is an important service to your community. I am wondering if it's possible for you to consider to also list yourself as a tech ambassador for your community. If you need more information before deciding, please feel free to contact me! Thank you very much. Have a lovely weekend. Greetings from Italy, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:32, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi there! Not really being active in Phabricator, but I guess I can try. Also I have asked another user at that user's talk page (in Japanese) on whether he/she is willing to be a tech ambassador. That user translates tech news to Japanese so in my opinion is suitable to be tech ambassador and/or translator.--ネイ (talk) 11:08, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
Again, thanks a lot. It was very sensible of you to consider Marine-Blue also a good fit for the task! I will see you around :) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 11:31, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

New community space for IdeaLab on ConnectEdit

Hi folks. If you're receiving this message, you've contributed to IdeaLab or an Inspire Campaign this year. Thanks for participating to develop ideas and review ones from other Wikimedians.

We are preparing some changes to IdeaLab and Inspire Campaigns. One of these changes is a new community space on Connect, where Wikimedians can find each other based on common activities or skills, and ask questions about the space. You are invited to join this community space for IdeaLab, especially if you would ever consider needing to find contributors with certain skills (like design or project management) or would like to offer your skills to others in our movement. To join, please proceed to Connect/IdeaLab and click on the "Add yourself" button on the right. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 19:53, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on Measuring Community HealthEdit

Do you have an idea about how to measure the health of your community? Do you want to review ideas that others have submitted? Through August 10th, we are inviting ideas on how to capture the well-being of Wikimedia communities, in terms of matters like conflict resolution, effective content creation, and being able to contribute in a collaborative environment. Ideas can be focused on either quantitative techniques, such as gathering raw data, or qualitative techniques, like surveying contributors. If you are submitting an idea, guidance is available for how to move your idea into implementation, such as through a grant or starting a Phabricator task to engage with developers.

If you're interested, consider joining the Inspire Campaign. I JethroBT (WMF) 17:14, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

(Ney, Hello. Reaching out to you as you're among the "tech ambassadors" for this language. We'd really appreciate your help this week, and also you spreading the word to other experienced editors willing to lend a hand!)

ウィキメディア財団リサーチチームで開発中の新しいアルゴリズムは、編集者に向けて記事に追加する節を自動的にお勧めする機能です。このアルゴリズムは機械学習を応用、同様のトピックを扱う他の記事の節から、当該の記事に当てはまりそうな節を提示します。節のお勧め機能はウィキペディアの英語版とスペイン語版、日本語版とロシア語版、アラビア語版とフランス語版でご用意しています。 皆さんのような経験の長い編集者に、これら節のお勧めを検証して評価をいただき、機能改善に役立てたいと考えています! お勧めが役に立つようでしたら、スタブ記事の拡大に取り組もうとする編集者向けのツール群に採用する計画です。

Hello from TokyoEdit

Hello Nei, I've done a couple of art+feminism events in Tokyo since 2018 and currently setting up the next editathon/conference for March. Are you doing any event for Asian Month this year in Japan? Looking to connect with other Wikipedians across Japanese/English Wikipedia who might be interested in mentoring at our event. Our grant proposal is here, please endorse if you have a moment.

Hi there - I could not help much but any case forwarded the message to User:さえぼー-san who regularly supports these events.--ネイ (talk) 07:14, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I tried reaching out to Penn Station last month - w:ja:利用者‐会話:Penn Station#Global renamers - but didn't get a response. At present half the outstanding requests to be renamed are from Japanese users (11 out of 22). Japanese users aren't being served as well as they should be because of the shortage of Japanese speakers among the global renamers. My Japanese skills are non-existent - could you help recruit some trusted volunteers to put themselves forward for consideration at m:SRGREN. Thanks, Cabayi (talk) 13:28, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

@Cabayi: Hi there. Thank you for reaching out. I do not have much idea on who to recruit since being a global renamer also requires a certain level of English skills.
I am willing to go to SRGREN but am not sure whether there will be enough support, since I have never been an OTRS member, and possibly insufficient cross-wiki experience. ネイ (talk) 12:00, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
There's a Japanese version of meta's policy & ja:Wikipedia:利用者名 to guide Japanese-only speakers. It's an understanding of the Japanese requests that's needed. We can always get a translation of the interface if there isn't one already.
I'd eagerly and happily support you for renamer, you're active om meta and several other wikis already, and an admin on ja. OTRS is, in my opinion, irrelevant - it's mostly people complaining that the metadata or "author" on their image uploads to commons didn't get altered as part of the rename. Cabayi (talk) 13:25, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
In that case, let me just have a try on requesting for the permissions. Thank you for your guidance. ネイ (talk) 14:34, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

Global renamerEdit

Hello ネイ. You have now the global renamer permissions. Please take a moment to read and familiarize yourself with the global renamers page and the global rename policy. As a global renamer you're also allowed to subscribe to the global renamers mailing list and, if you're an OTRS agent, access to the renamers private queue. Thanks for volunteering. Please let me know if you have any questions. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:43, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

InternetArchiveBot on Japanese WikipediaEdit

Hello, ネイ. I am one of the maintainers of InternetArchiveBot and I am currently working on fixing outstanding problems across wikis, including Japanese Wikipedia. My understanding is that the bot was blocked for not respecting rate limits and for misidentifying many links as being broken. The first problem has been fixed and I am working on solving the second. In the meantime, I am wondering if the bot can be unblocked so that, when we are ready, we can re-apply for bot approval. We will not resume the bot until then. Thank you, harej (talk) 20:05, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Hello. Please let me know when you apply for bot approval - I can unblock when you do so. ネイ (talk) 04:02, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Write words in the videoEdit

Hi ネイ. Please can you help me by writing down what was mentioned in this video starting 7:40 till 8:05? because I'm having trouble understanding it.

Note: Of course, writing the words in the video, I want it to be in the same language as the Japanese video, and not by translating it into English, because I do not want the translation, but I want to know the words as you write them in Japanese. Best Regards.محمد ماجد السورميري (talk) 21:50, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi there. How does this request relate to Wikimedia Project? ネイ (talk) 14:42, 6 June 2021 (UTC)
Hi ネイ, not related to Wikimedia, but you mentioned: If you cannot read Japanese, you can refer to my User Page at Meta-wiki. That's why I made this request here. I should have introduced it on your talk page. Sorry.

About this request, can you implement it? please.محمد ماجد السورميري (talk) 15:28, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

ネイ.محمد ماجد السورميري (talk) 12:04, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
Talk pages are not for discussions unrelated to Wikimedia Project. I am sorry to say that there is nothing I could help on this. ネイ (talk) 10:15, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Well ネイ, the request was wrong from the start so I will move it to your discussion page on the Japanese Wikipedia and please answer me there.محمد ماجد السورميري (talk) 10:48, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Please do not repeat the same request on my talk page(s). Any similar requests unrelated to Wikipedia Project will be declined. ネイ (talk) 10:51, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
