Localized logo for kg.wikipediaEdit

Hello! In 2010 you were interested in making a localized logo for Kikongo Wikipedia. Here are the requested translations:

Wikipedia = Wikipedia

The Free Encyclopedia = Mukânda ya luzâbu ya bântu nyonso

Thanks, Neruda from kg.wikipedia

Thanks, I added it to User:Cbrown1023/Logos. Cbrown1023 talk 19:28, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Removing me from OTRS nominationEdit

I would at least like a reason why I was removed instead of being removed w/o reason. SpeakFree 02:28, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

We do not post acceptance decisions publicly for the privacy of applicants—non-OTRS users will not know whether or not an applicant was accepted. I did respond to your e-mail application though. Cbrown1023 talk 02:55, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Courtesy blankingEdit

Hey Casey, I saw that you reverted Beria and courtesy blanked the RfC twice [1]. You cited an en.wp deletion policy and then courtesy blanked without prior notice or discussion. The RfC should be closed, but I completely disagree with courtesy blanking, the last few RfC about individuals are still up there from last year, if you subject this to courtesy blanking, the same blanket treatment should apply to all. The intention of RfC is to bring content from all over the place into a single location in public view, it has comments from a couple of different individuals that might be relevant. I am going to revert, if you don't object. Regards. Theo10011 20:29, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

I saw this [2]. Thanks Casey. Later. Theo10011 23:54, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Have we considered the BLP policy here? BLP applies on all project pages, including RFCs. Philippe (WMF) 00:12, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Pb, how would BLP policies apply to editor conduct? I don't see the relation between biographies vs. statements and comments made by an editor, almost all of which is public. I already see a couple of open RfCs that would be affected by it, like this - [3]. BLP Policies are for articles, not editor disputes that are not in mainspace, if they were to apply to editor conduct, won't that bleed over to admin noticeboards, Arbcom and other areas that has nothing to do with articles? Theo10011 01:16, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
No, Theo, that's incorrect. The BLP policy (which is a board policy) has no restriction to article space. That's intentional. Philippe (WMF) 10:47, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Can you cite some case where it is applied to an RfC? I have rarely seen it applied to RfCs on en.wp, please do show me where BLP policy was applied. First, it is a stretch to believe that the information there falls under BLP in any way. That particular case doesn't stand out much if you look at the RfC archive for the last year or two. Someone more versed with this case along with a neutral party should first decide if there is even an issue there, then if BLP issues exist. An application of BLP on Meta might have implication on future RfCs, there are already a few that are quiet similar. There is a meta community, if there is any policy change needed it should be brought up and discussed with the community here, not general policies or policies taken from other projects to be applied on whim by a single arbiter. It is an RfC, if there are legitimate concerns, there is a procedure in place. I suggested asking a steward if there is any libel or private information in that RfC, they deal with this stuff all day. That's what I advised twice to RT. Theo10011 13:18, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

PingEdit

May I use your opinion here? - Seems Babel is not as active as in the past. Thanks. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 17:22, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

New emailEdit

Hello. You've got new message. Cheers--Morning Sunshine 14:36, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

NOINDEXEdit

Afaik it doesn't work, I'll try with mediawiki:Robots.txt, then I'll remove it. See you! --Vituzzu 10:42, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

orly? If it doesn't work, I'd like to know more about that... do you have any links or anything? Philippe (WMF) 10:45, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

IRC CloakEdit

I know you probably get a lot of messages about this, but how do I know if an IRC cloak's been approved? I've submitted the Google Spreadsheets form. Do I get a message, or should I /whois myself to see if I have the cloak? Thank you.--Frglz 02:08, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

You should /whois yourself or check your information via NickServ. Your cloak hasn't been set yet. Cbrown1023 talk 00:38, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Discussion about site notice for fellowship project endorsementsEdit

Hey Casey! I'm looking for feedback about running a site notice on meta this week, would be great to hear your thoughts before I go do the wrong thing :-) Siko (talk) 20:51, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Grouppage-stewardEdit

MediaWiki:Grouppage-steward has been deleted in many projects (like Commons) because the wiki-code inserted by users is redundant to the default wiki-code. So MediaWiki:Grouppage-steward should be deleted because the default code already leads to Stewards. -- SLV100 (talk) 03:46, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

The default adds a meta: prefix which would point to a wrong page IIRC. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 08:43, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
The default code is probably Stewards or m:Stewards because the default slightly differs in each wiki (see English Wikipedia, Spanish Wikipedia, and French Wikipedia). -- SLV100 (talk) 02:19, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Removing cloakEdit

Hello, Cbrown1023. I am wondering if there is a way to remove my Wikimedia cloak on IRC. Thank you. Allan Aguilar (talk)   15:21, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, just drop by #freenodeconnect and ask a staffer to remove your cloak. Please keep in mind, though, that this is permanent. After you request that they remove your cloak, you need to put in another application to get a new cloak. (You also can't do this to avoid a ban in a channel, but that's probably not the case. :-)) Cbrown1023 talk 15:37, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Collaborate with OTRSEdit

Good afternoon, I'm interested in volunteering to work on OTRS on issues related to Commons. What I do for this? Thank you, Shania Twain Portugal (talk) 18:07, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Localized logo for ts.WiktionaryEdit

Hi There, thanks for the ts.wikipedia logo. I submitted a bugzilla to get this image comitted. Would you complete the image/logo for ts.Wiktionary as well?? I would like to get that started too. --Thuvack (talk) 06:43, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't have time (or the skills!) to do logos. :-( Try Requests for logos? Cbrown1023 talk 21:02, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

IRC CloaksEdit

If I wanted an IRC cloak but didn't want it to be @wikimedia/xxcom9a and I owned another Wikimedia account of the same name as my IRC name but it doesn't meet the 250 edit requirement but this one does, could I apply using this one and ask for it to use the name of my other account if the other account's user page redirected to my own? Thanks. Xxcom9a (talk) 14:50, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that should be fine, just include a diff with both names, or something else that confirms you own both names. Cbrown1023 talk 21:01, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

CloakEdit

I need an IRC cloak.--Deathlaser (talk) 18:18, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

See IRC/Cloaks, it points you to the cloak request form. Cbrown1023 talk 18:22, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
I just used the cloak form yesterdays, can you say yes and copy over to my discussion at [4]?

Incubator sysop activityEdit

Hi Cbrown1023, we have recently reviewed our sysop inactivity policy on Incubator and changed the time limit: so from now on admins inactive for one year rather than 6 months would be desysopped. As you have been quite inactive in terms of the policy on Incubator, would you mind if we'd request the stewards to remove the admin bits from you? See the details on incubator:Incubator:A#Inactivity_desysoppings.2C_June_2012. Best regards, --MF-W 23:15, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

That would be fine. Thanks for doing this and for asking, MF-W! Cbrown1023 talk 23:41, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
The right change has now been done. Of course you'll be welcome back at Incubator at any time :-) --MF-W 13:58, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Your feedback is requested at IRC/HostsEdit

Any contributions you may have to this active conversation would be greatly appreciated: IRC/Hosts

Thank you! --Varnent (talk) 22:28, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Cloak requestEdit

Hi, I made a cloak request on September 8 and hadn't heard anything. Am I supposed to be notified? Also, based on another editor's question on your talk page, I went to Xchat to see if I could figure it out (I'm VERY unfamiliar with IRC-related stuff) but found that my trial period had expired and I had to pay $20 to register and continue using the project. I thought another admin at the English Wikipedia had told me that Xchat was free. Am I missing something here? Of course, the irony is most of the 30 day trial period was taken up waiting for the cloaking request. :-) Thanks. --Bbb23 (talk) 16:45, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
