What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?Edit

Hi there,

I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!

Here’s how to participate:

Take care,

Future IdeaLab Campaigns resultsEdit

Last December, I invited you to help determine future ideaLab campaigns by submitting and voting on different possible topics. I'm happy to announce the results of your participation, and encourage you to review them and our next steps for implementing those campaigns this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered time to participate and submit ideas.

With great thanks,

I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, Wikimedia Foundation. 23:56, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Open Call for Individual Engagement GrantsEdit

Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is accepting proposals until April 12th to fund new tools, research, outreach efforts, and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers. Whether you need a small or large amount of funds (up to $30,000 USD), IEGs can support you and your team’s project development time in addition to project expenses such as materials, travel, and rental space.

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)

Watchlist Expiry project pageEdit


During the Community Whishlist survey 2019, you have voted for the Watchlist item Expiration wish.

Community Tech has created the Watchlist Expiry project page to work on this feature, and is looking for your feedback about the open questions they have.

Reporting accountsEdit

Hey. You might want to install User:Xiplus/TwinkleGlobal.js so you can report accounts for locking at whichever wiki you're on. Minorax (talk) 08:29, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Account renamingEdit

Sorry if I'm asking on the wrong place. I need to change my username that's currently jkbeast2135 And I have no way of doing it on my own, I read on one of the pages that I need to as one of you guys so I have chosen your name

If you have the authority to change my username then please change it to johank213 or something along those lines

Thank you so much. I would greatly appreciate it! My email is johankoekemoer213@gmail.com Jkbeast2135 (talk) 04:51, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

Jkbeast2135, the point to renaming accounts is to preserve the attribution of a user's contributions. You have made only one edit, this request. It would be easier for you (and quicker) to just abandon this account and start over with a new account.
Moreover, "or something along those lines", you need to decide what name you want. It's not for anyone else to do on your behalf.
If you really, really need to have your account renamed then Steward requests/Username changes is the place to request it. A properly formatted request there hooks into the tools to do the job. Cabayi (talk) 09:01, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

Account renamingEdit

Sorry for the inconvenience. I didn't know there was already an account named Rafplayz. Rafplayz001 (talk) 13:03, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Rafplayz001 it doesn't. There's a difference between
  • RafPlayz which already exists, and
  • Rafplayz, the name you requested, which doesn't.
Is big P RafPlayz yours? Do you have access to it? If you don't, you can ask to usurp it at USURP.
I'll go ahead and reject the current request just to tidy up the loose ends. Regards, Cabayi (talk) 14:59, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
Big P RafPlayz is not mine, I requested to switch over to Rafplayz, if you could do that for me, please and thanks. I thought usernames were case-insensitive. Thanks in advance, Rafplayz001 (talk) 15:10, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Rename requestEdit

Hello! Hope you are doing good. I would like to change my username as "Agnihothri Sharath". Could you please help? Thank you, --Sreeram Dilak (talk) 13:03, 14 September 2021 (UTC)


As you said here so I want to reply you that this email hcatlin@wikimedia.org doesn't exist in which you emailed because I am a former employer in WMF so it doesn't exist but this email exist hamptoncatlinwmf@gmail.com —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hampton Catlin (talk) 11:09, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Hampton Catlin, Former employees don't qualify for a (WMF) suffix to be added to their username. It seems clear to me you're impersonating w:en:Hampton Catlin. Cabayi (talk) 11:19, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
