MassMessage timestamp

Hi, I'm reaching out to you because you've used Special:MassMessage here in the last couple of months. In phab:T270435 there's a discussion about how to be able to use MassMessage when using the new "Page to be sent as a message" function, which would require an easier way of adding a timestamp. My suggestion is to add it automatically, since MassMassages are going out to discussion pages of different kinds, and should be timestamped. If you have a workflow where you don't want your message to be timestamped, please let me now on my talk page or in the Phabricator ticket. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 14:19, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Signature is a good wiki-hygiene. I fully support making it mandatory. Only thing is: I want to choose where signature should be located. So, as long as I can choose on where to put (3x~ or 4x~) sigature (or just 5x~ timestamp), I don't really mind the change. — regards, Revi 16:29, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Please bother giving me the role of rollbacker on Hindi wiki

Hello Revi , Sir, you have the right to steward on the meta wiki, you can give the member rights on the meta wiki and the local wikis, Sir, I have been working on freeing Hindi Wikipedia from Vandalisn about 4 months. But I was not active on Wikipedia due to busy few days, but now I am active, you can see my contribution if you want[1] And I have made 80+ articles on Hindi Wikipedia, which is based on a remarkable topic, Sir, if I had got the rights to rollbacker, I would have been able to remove vandalism from articles well. Twinkle did not remove vandalism on articles because of the time it took to rollback. Pata, once you had given my contribution and given the right to the right rollbacker for 1 month, it would have helped me to remove the barbarity and I can prove that I am capable of this right.(Best Regardes)Karam06 (talk) 07:08, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Please use ascii. It is barely readable. I am not going to spend time decrypting your ciphertext. — regards, Revi 06:18, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
hi.wikipedia has 8 admins. Stewards do not grant local permissions when there is local people capable of doing same action. Contact your local admins. Thanks. — regards, Revi 07:13, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
these 8 Admin are Unactive at this Time. Thanks Karam06 (talk) 07:21, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
statistics tells me otherwise. — regards, Revi 07:24, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
what is this and I can't Understand what did you wan't say, Sir excuse me why i requested you to give me rollbacker rights. Thanks Karam06 (talk) 07:36, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
There are at least 6 active admins on hi.wikipedia. Stewards' policy prohibits granting any rights when there are local people capable of that, therefore I will not grant local rollback to you. — regards, Revi 07:38, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Also: Meta-Wiki interface cannot grant 'rollback', so we typically do not grant it. — regards, Revi 07:41, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok Sir Thanks for Informed Me , But can you tell me by looking at my [2] that I am eligible for rollback rights and can request for a rollbacker or not, Sir, you can help me.thanks Karam06 (talk) 07:51, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
@Karam06: Random user here, you'll need to ask the admins of hi.wikipedia. Revi cannot help you here as stewards do not control local communities with admins. Leaderboard (talk) 07:54, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
In my homewiki, I use following criteria to check if they are capable.
  1. 6 months after account registration
  2. More than 250 'undo'
  3. At least few months using undo
  4. (if applicable) 6 months after last block.
  5. (if applicable) 6 months after last rollback application rejection
  6. If your 'undo' was appropriate
  7. If I trust you
Feel free to check if you would get the permission under my criteria. — regards, Revi 07:56, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok sir i trust you, what do i have to do now? Thanks Karam06 (talk) 08:02, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
(talk-page stalker) Karam06जी, नमस्ते। हिंदी विकिपीडिया पर स्थानीय प्रबंधक रौलबेकर अधिकार प्रदान कर सकते हैं, इसलिए स्टीवर्ड आपको यह अधिकार प्रदान नहीं कहेंगे। अगर आप यह अधिकार पाना चाहते हैं तो इस पृष्ठ पर अपना निवेदन डाले। धन्यवाद! -- CptViraj (talk) 07:41, 31 January 2021 (UTC)


In Test Wikidata there are two Oversights without election. See phab:T256949#6273926--GZWDer (talk) 08:21, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting. Removing. — regards, Revi 17:33, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

Also on test2: [3] (CU, OS) --Rschen7754 20:47, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

That one does appear to have been granted through WMF procedure but it is concerning they have done this. [4] --Rschen7754 20:52, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Totally forgot about this. Will remove soon (after I get something to drink) — regards, Revi 15:02, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
I seem to have linked to one thing while talking about another. 1 CU/OS on test2, 2 CU on test. Appears to be "properly" WMF granted but it doesn't follow community policies and in some of the cases the user has no edits and/or is +staff already. --Rschen7754 15:06, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
True, at least T&S said it has updated WMF internal guidelines about granting CUOS (maybe to say no? I did't really have a chance to even read it once because I never had access to WMF officewiki) so we shall wait for future cases... — regards, Revi 15:08, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Dear -revi,

Thank you for your help in dealing with the recent zhwiki's CU. There may be some misunderstandings, and I am not very polite , so I apologize to you. In addition, I think you are a very good steward, so I change vote ‘keep’ to you. Thank you for your contribution to the wiki!--May♡♡→♡℃Talk 11:23, 20 February 2021 (UTC)


I'll be away for few weeks (or months). No ETA.

  • If you need OS on Meta: Meta:OS
  • If you need OS on wikis without local OS: stewards
  • I (probably) will not reply to your IRC/Discord/etc pings.
