Hi Barras, Myself and two others at Wikispecies have been granted Checkuser Access. Wanted to discuss access to the Checkuser channel on IRC and the possibility of setting up a private administrative channel for Wikispecies admins, crats and CU's (one channel for all these)> Realise this cannot be discussed on wiki, we have our public channel #wikispecies on IRC, or you may contact me by Skype if you prefer. Or just set a time. Thank you for your assistance. Cheers Faendalimas (talk) 12:28, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

The other two are User:Dan Koehl and me. We'll be adding ourselves to the mailing list and IRC please and thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:25, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
You can set up whatever channel you want/need without any problem. You don't need a special permission to do so. There is no real need to discuss this. -Barras talk 19:38, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Your feedback matters: Final reminder to take the global Wikimedia surveyEdit

Help design a new feature to stop harassing emailsEdit

Hi there,

The Anti-Harassment Tools team plans to start develop of a new feature to allow users to restrict emails from new accounts. This feature will allow an individual user to stop harassing emails from coming through the Special:EmailUser system from abusive sockpuppeting accounts.

We’re inviting you to join the discussion because you have experience dealing with abusive sockpuppeting accounts and you work across many wikis. We think that your insights will help us build a better feature.

You can leave comments on this discussion page or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.

It is important to hear from a broad range of people who are interested in the design of the tool, so we hope you join the discussion and let us know how it would work best for you.

For the Anti-Harassment Tools team SPoore (WMF), Community Advocate, Community health initiative (talk) 21:50, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.


@Tiven2240: I can't help you with that. You may ask a current steward for help. -Barras talk 22:20, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
