feedback for Wikidata mockupsEdit

Hey :)

You indicated that you'd like to help with the interwiki link phase of Wikidata. We're currently looking for feedback on mockups about linking on the Wikipedias. In case you have not seen them yet it'd be great if you could have a look and tell me what you think.

Cheers --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 15:10, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Wikidata interwiki to Wikidata transitionEdit


You signed up on Wikidata/Volunteers to help with the Interwiki to Wikidata transition. I wanted to get back to you about that. Have you already tried the demo? We are getting closer to an initial roll-out on the first Wikipedia and it'd be great if you could give it a try. Please do let me know about any problems you encounter. Thanks for your help :)

Cheers Lydia

Fundraising translation feedbackEdit

Hey Arkanosis,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback in french using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

Many Thanks

Je blalate sur Talk:Trademark practices discussion parce que les projets Wikimedia me tiennent à cœur, et que je pense que je peux dire des choses sensées. Mais, en fait, je n’existe plus sur les projets Mediawiki, si tu voulais bien me bloquer indéf sur meta (ou le faire faire) tu me rendrais service. Merci. --ArséniureDeGallium (talk) 20:14, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Oups, heureusement que tu ne l’a pas fait trop vite (sinon je ne pourrais plus faire cette demande).
Ce que je veux, en fait, c’est un global block, un blocage définitif sur tous les projets.
Adieu, et amitiés. --ArséniureDeGallium (talk) 20:48, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Tu m'embêtes GaAs… pourquoi moi ? Si j'avais eu les outils sur meta, j'aurais refusé de te bloquer, parce que ce n'est pas comme ça que je les utilise.
Je t'aime bien, je sens bien que tu as vraiment besoin de décrocher des projet Wikimedia, aussi je vais transférer ta demande aux stewards.
Je te laisse jusqu'à demain soir 5 juin à 23 h 59 (UTC) pour changer d'avis.
Je ne te dis pas adieu ; je sais que tu reviendras. Mais pars longtemps, tu te fais du mal ici.
Bien à toi — Arkanosis 22:37, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Suppression de fichier WikimediaEdit

Très cher Arkanosis,

Je souhaiterais supprimer le fichier que j'ai créé File:Arbre_diagnostic_SCA.png et la page correspondante J'y ai apporté quelques améliorations importées sur une nouvelle page. Merci d'avance pour ton aide précieuse. :)

Oodna (talk) 20:45, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Très chère et estimée Oodna,
En ajoutant le modèle {{speedydeletion}} sur la page de l'image que tu souhaitais voir supprimée, tu as fait tout ce qu'il était nécessaire de faire.
N'étant pas moi-même administrateur sur ce projet, je ne peux que t'inviter à attendre que quelqu'un d'autre s'en occupe. En ce qui te concerne, tu n'as rien de plus à faire.
Merci pour tes contributions :) Bien à toi — Arkanosis 02:20, 13 September 2013 (UTC)


J'ai fait quelque chose de mal ? Desole(e). Mon problème était le Verdy p. j'ai remarqué que traduit ce que je parlais. Ana Gauna (talk) 12:04, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Userpage frr deletedEdit

Hi Arkanosis,
I deleted your user page w:frr:Benutzer:Arkanosis. I think, this is, what you intended, right?
You could also have used the {{delete}}-tag instead ;-) --Murma174 (talk) 11:11, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

P.S. And there are also bots on meta doing this job for you ... j.
Hi Murma174,
Thank you so much for your help :)
I thought I would look at it later as I've a few more user pages to delete, now that missing user pages are automatically replaced with one's user page on meta (I didn't know about the bots). But hey, you've already saved me some time!
Thanks again and best regards — Arkanosis 11:19, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
BTW:Here's the link to the bot: Synchbot --Murma174 (talk) 16:52, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
Murma174, you're so kind! :) I already filled a request after you told me about that :) Thanks! — Arkanosis 16:56, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome! We are all swimming in the same basin ... --Murma174 (talk) 17:40, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello Arkanosis. I deleted your local user pages on all wikis as you requested via Synchbot. You can see the full log on your archive page. :) —Pathoschild 05:00, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 31 DecemberEdit

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation

Cross-wiki watchlistEdit

Hi! You voted for the cross-wiki watchlist as an important suggestions in the community wishlist survey last year. I'm pinging editors who showed interest in that task to tell them we have some suggestions for how things could look, if you'd like to glance at them and give us some feedback. You can find them on the project page on Meta. If you'd like to share any comments, you're very welcome to do so on the talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 01:05, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

Atelier wikiconvention2016 frEdit

Bonjour Arkanosis, Je viens de voir l' atelier développeur. Je me suis demandé s'il y avait moyen de suivre ça en visio. (genre ?)

Je cherche en effet un pied à l'étrier pour des wikibots (dans le cadre du Wikiversity Journal User Group, en particulier le Journal scientifique libre cf autre discussion [1]).

--RP87 (talk) 10:04, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Bonjour RP87 et merci pour ton message :)
J'ignore s'il est prévu une retransmission en simultané, mais à la lecture des discussions sur la mailing-list parisienne concernant un éventuel enregistrement de certaines conférences, j'ai plutôt tendance à penser qu'au mieux quelques spectateurs auront fait un enregistrement plus ou moins amateur et qu'au pire il n'y aura aucune trace des conférences.
Je viens de faire un test rapide avec le (super) site que tu as mentionné et la vérité, c'est que la qualité de l'image est franchement pourrie (avec la webcam de mon portable, certes, mais si j'utilise ma webcam pro, ce n'est guère mieux — et je doute de toutes façons que la connexion WiFi me permette de faire du streaming HD le jour J).
Je me tâte pour apporter mon reflex avec trépied et micro shotgun ; je ferai un essai le vendredi pour voir si ça en vaut la peine. Dans le pire des cas, si ça te tente, pour pourra faire une session de rattrapage à une date ultérieure (si tu es de passage sur Paris) : j'ai déjà animé quelques atelier dans les locaux de Wikimédia France et c'est plutôt sympa.
Amicalement — Arkanosis 04:39, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
Salut Arkanosis,
Effectivement, ça risque d'être compliqué à mettre en œuvre si vite d'ici - là.
C'est peut-être l'occasion de collecter du 'matériel' pour un mooc.
Question vidéo, l'HD ne me semble pas nécessaire. Mais les flux vidéos des écrans employés et un bon son, là j'en conviens.
Merci pour l'invitation, surtout que passer à wikimédia France me titille.
J'ai un ami sur Paris qui a un micro de table, je me dis que pour un atelier chez wikimedia ça pourrait être utile.
Je suis sur la métropole de Lille, mais il faut vraiment que je travaille ma mobilité vers Paris.
Je cogite tous ça pour revenir vers toi avec une proposition pour cet atelier de rattrapage qui me tente vraiment.

2016 Community Wishlist SurveyEdit


You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

The Community Wishlist SurveyEdit


You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

"Who Wrote That" project updateEdit

Hello. I'm reaching out to you as you participated in the 2017 Community Wishlist proposal for "Who Wrote That" project (previously known as "Blame Tool"). The Community Tech team is kicking things off on the project and we have an early-stage mockup available for you to look at. I invite you to follow that project page, where I will be posting periodic status updates for the project. You are also welcome to provide your thoughts on the talk page. Thank you. -- NKohli (WMF) (talk) 22:57, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Vote pour le siège au conseil d'administration de Wikimédia FranceEdit

Bonsoir Arkanosis,

une première rédaction du règlement de vote à cette élection laissait planer une ambiguïté sur la possibilité, ou non, de voter pour plusieurs candidatures.

Nous précisons donc qu'il est parfaitement possible de voter pour plusieurs candidatures, si tel était votre souhait.

La page du règlement a été clarifiée.

Bien cordialement,

Willie Robert (talk) 21:13, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Bonjour Willie  
Merci pour cette clarification qui est bienvenue ; je me suis effectivement brièvement posé la question.
