what if ifs for your own talk page, or user page? this does not look like what I used before? thanksAlphagirl 15:58, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

You should use {{delete|user request}} for your user page. A user talk page should normally not deleted but archived. Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 16:00, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

thanks, but this still does not look like what I used before, I dont like the part about discussing weather it should be deleting or not..that was not there before? basically I am trying to delete a talk page of mine that has personal info on it, another wikipedian is harassing me and keeps putting the personal info back up! the guy is totally annoying!Alphagirl 16:14, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Where he harasses you? —DerHexer (Talk) 16:14, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Which project do you mean? —DerHexer (Talk) 16:26, 12 October 2007 (UTC)


Not as polite & tolerant as en wp. Good to see you here, cheers --Herby talk thyme 17:04, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

I was not fully stretched so that I decided to participate here, too! = ) And I really hope that it's not as tolerant as en:wp. ;) A bit more like de:wp. Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 17:09, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
I blocked him anyway. And as you saw deletions are a little less formal here. Stick around & thanks --Herby talk thyme 17:10, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I saw that you blocked him. I was not sure to tag Image:Schema pathfinder.JPG so that it was deleted as I decided to do so. … meta-vandals like User:Shriramgems will be reported here, or where? —DerHexer (Talk) 17:16, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
That page is pretty dead (sadly). When I started I tended to go here however it is rare that there is not an admin watching rc here - I often found that things were deleted faster than I could tag them! --Herby talk thyme 17:34, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Typo in your statementEdit

While I was translating your statement in Serbian, I saw that you wrote "35,000 edits". I changed the last link from "en.wikipedia" to "de.wikipedia" in all links. --Millosh 17:19, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

I didn't voteEdit

Per your request on my talk page, my edit to .anaconda's vote page was not a vote against the user, as you seem to have believed, but a correction - the numbering would have displayed as 1, 2, 1 due to the excess space. (Also, your comment on my talk page was quite unclear, perhaps you should be more verbose?) 19:10, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes, sorry, my mistake. Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 19:17, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Cross-wiki monitoring teamEdit

Guten Tag. I'd like to help with the Small Wiki Monitoring Team. But I don't have IRC. I would just check some "recent changes" pages sometimes, I guess. I'm a administrator on Simple English Wikiquote.

Can you give me some ideas how to help? Maybe I'll ask to be a (temporary?) administrator on some small projects. Can you suggest which ones? Is there a list of small projects?

Are there any other ways to monitor for vandalism other than IRC and ordinary Recent Changes logs? It would be useful to have a Recent Changes log that shows changes on many small wikis in the same list. --Coppertwig 21:44, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Da du mir im IRC nicht geantwortet hast, wiederhole ich meine Anfrage hier (ich will dich nicht nerven, dies ist eher eine Art Erinnerung):

Auf der Twi-Wikipedia gibt es 38 Schnelllöschkandidaten. Da dies kaum unter der Gesamtanzahl der Artikel liegt, wäre es nett, wenn die Schnelllöschkandidaten weg sind, damit ich mir ein besseres Bild der WP machen kann. Da du zufälligerweise dort Sysop bist, trifft sich das sehr gut ;).

Please Help DankaEdit

Hi, I been having a problem with one user on wiki who has several admin accounts and other user names. His admin account is gogo dodo and users names are blotto adrift, snowfire51 - now redrockey - mast cell, malcommxl5 and several more. I am here on wiki because I like the idea and I like to correct mistakes. However gogo dodo is here to keep his own political edits current and whne there is a mistake and someone edits it he cries and calls that person a sock. It is a shame that an admin can abuse wiki like this. This has been going on for over 4 months now. The best example is the canadian gun registry page where he deleted the edits and reverted them back to his blotto adrifts edits even when blotto was warn by another user as to the rr3 policy and when the page has been tagged for review.

This is not all, gogo dodo uses his power to hide his rr3 violations, wikiwars and user talk by deleting the history so it appears that he is innocent and the other user is guilty. Please help in this matter. If you read his history, and the history of the other users and the pages that he edits you will see that MANY and I mean Many users have had this same problem with him.

Thank you for your time.

ps - this is on the english version of wiki

Übernahme von bereits existierenden BenutzerkontenEdit

Hallo Hexer, es geht um diesen Fall hier. Der IP-Benutzer (unterschrieben als ru:Участник:Butko) hat mich gestern gebeten, Benutzerkonto Korisnik:Butko zu löschen damit er sich unter diesem Namen anmelden kann. Benutzer:Butko hatte zwar keine Edits ist aber erst seit dem 31. Januar 2008 angemeldet. Ich habe dem IP-Benutzer erklärt dass er ohne Benutzerkonto auf der keinen Antrag auf Übernahme stellen kann. Jetzt mußte ich feststellen dass du die Übernahme bereits vollzogen hast. Der Benutzer Batko wurde nicht informiert über diesen Schritt und konnte sich auch nicht dazu äußern. Sein Benutzerkonto wurde ebenfalls nicht umbennat bzw. verschoben. Ich danke dir für deine Antwort. Schöne Grüße. --Elmir[demicx] 11:50, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Benutzerkonten ohne eine Bearbeitung können einfach zu dem bisherigen SUL-Vorgang ergänzt werden. Sich dafür im anderen Wiki anzumelden und dann den anderen Benutzer umbenennen lassen, klingt zwar gut, wenn man allerdings dann seinen Alternativaccount zum richtigen umbenennen lassen will, erscheint der Fehler, dass es unter diesem Namen schon einen Account mit SUL gibt. Die bisher getätigten Edits unter dem Alternativaccount könnten in dieser Version des SUL nicht zum SUL-Account ergänzt werden. Eine direkte Übernahme von 0-Edit-Accounts ist momentan eine der wenigen Möglichkeiten, überhaupt Accounts regulär zu übernehmen. Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 11:55, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Sollen aber nicht vorher die Benutzer von 0-Edit-Accouts darüber informiert werden dass deren Account übernommen wird? --Elmir[demicx] 13:33, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Keine Antwort? --Elmir[demicx] 09:13, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi, it appears that you helped User:Complex to usurp sv:User:Complex. The sv:user had prior edits and Swedish Wikipedia do not allow usurpations of user accounts with edits. If a request to do so had been made to me or any other bureacrat, the request would have been denied. Let me take this moment to quote from the instructions "If the accounts to be usurped have contributions, please ask local bureaucrats to rename the accounts instead". No request to local bureacrats was made. Regards, Thuresson 19:04, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

SRU#Instructions: "Merge accounts without edits or if the user doesn't mind acquiring the edits of an unblocked, vandalism-only account" That's what I've done—I've usurped a vandalism-only account, an impostor on several projects for months. Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 19:23, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Hi there, fyi the account prior has had vandalic edits like "Trottelzensor" which is an insult, this user is well known by checkusers all over the wikis, he had made multiple accounts on other wikis than impersonating sysops and vandalizing the projects with their names then.

Hello, I am currently in the process of transwiki'ing some stuff from en.wikipedia that was metapedic in nature and which I was the sole (or almost the sole) contributor to. WPWR is among those. Qq 23:11, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

All moved. —DerHexer (Talk) 10:26, 27 March 2008 (UTC)


Groetjes, DerHexer,

I'm visiting you from West Frisian wiktionary, where (as best I can tell?) we have no appointed bureaucrats, no appointed checkuser group members, (also no developers or oversighters, though that isn't uncommon), and one sysop/Behearder, yourself, with it looks like, just two contributions, maybe edits to your userpage, and a couple recent spambot blocks (thanks for that!)? (Again, this is all "best I can tell.")

This has apparently been the state of affairs for about a year now. (Again, to the best of my knowledge.) Common entries looking like this have resulted, which aside from the rather, uh, unconventional approach, also have 13 NOEDITSECTION tags embedded--making them a little bit harder to fix. (Almost all section labels are created with templates aliasing the section name and embedding NOEDITSECTION.)

Assuming there's no reason not to, how would we go about electing a second sysop?

Pages tagged for deletion are not getting deleted. The user interface isn't getting tweaked. Requested translations in protected areas can't be made. And apparently nobody can change the broken links in the side navigation page. (I've kludged it by creating pages at the spurious links, and installing redirects, but that seems suboptimal.)

If it's not too inconvenient, could I get you to reply on my talk page at the relevant project, here?

Tank! Ik winskje dy in moaie dei,


P.S. This text is what led me to believe this query was appropriate here. If I'm in the wrong place, please tell me.

"Stewards are technically empowered to grant or remove any of the various levels of user rights, including bot, administrator, bureaucrat, oversight, checkuser, and steward. This position was created to dissociate rights management from software development. ... To contact a steward directly, use that steward's talk page."

Well, that wasn't exactly my question, but reading about the procedure pointed me in the right direction. I hope that will work. Thank you very much! Snakesteuben 15:46, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Proxy BlockEdit

Hi DerHexer,

I see that you have a new list of proxies - here - compared to the ones that you had blocked in in Dec 2007. Could you please execute the block in for these new proxy IPs? An ideal time to start run would be 1:00AM IST to 8:AM IST which is 9PM Berlin Time to 4AM Berlin Time. Thanks in advance ! --Jacob 15:31, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Well, this list doesn't seem to be actual. I'll check the new one. I could give myself sysop + bot so that my blocks won't appear in the log. Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 21:35, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks a lot ! Please go ahead.. --Jacob 21:06, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Alternately, if you could send me the bot code (is it based on pywikipedia?), I can run it myself. I shall send you my e-mail address. --Jacob 12:22, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
You have been granted bot + sysop status in - mentioned here. --Jacob 10:32, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Another request for proxy blockEdit

Spacebirdy pointed me in your direction regarding problems with an abusive user and his sockpuppets at Slovene Wikipedia (see Steward requests/Checkuser#Heroj_Patrik3@slwiki). Basically the user registered as sl:User:Patricij and after a short while, he became insulting rather than just loud. After he was blocked, he opened several sockpuppet accounts with variants of "Patricij" (all quickly blocked), and then a seemingly completely different account (sl:User:Janez Maček) with which he started to contribute more civilly. He was offended when confronted with the fact that he edited from the same IP and convinced us to remove the sockpuppet note from his user page (we gave him the benefit of doubt). But at the end, he got into a dispute with another user over a controversial religious topic and revealed his true nature again. That account was therefore also blocked, and so today he created more abusive accounts and threatened that we'll never get rid of him. This is why I'm asking you to take care of his proxies listed at the steward requests page. He seems to be using only those three. Contact me if you need further explanation. Thank you, --Yerpo 20:20, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

If you're English Wikipedia account is part of your global account, it should have the same password as all your other accounts. If not, it's more complicated (we can't just figure out your password and tell you) Calvin 1998 (t-c) 19:53, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
Eventhough it should it doesn't have the same PW for some reason unknown to me. Would it be possible for a high-level-admin to deleate me so that i'll be able to recreate goiken in en:wp and later merge with global goiken?
Can't I be deleated by a special procedure u usually use when fighting vandalism and then be recreated?
Is there a way for anybody to disable The Anti-Autocracking on users so that the Acc can be opened by a brute-force-Bot? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:12, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Hallo Hexer, Du kannst doch bestimmt Seiten inklusive Versionsgeschichte aus dewiki hier in metawiki importieren. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn Du de:Benutzer:Marbot/Konten nach User:Marbot/Accounts auf diesem Wiki importieren könntest. Wäre echt super. Hintergrund ist, daß ich nach gut zwei Jahren an eine Umgestaltung meiner Benutzerseite auf dewiki bastele. Den Löschantrag auf dewiki werde ich nach getaner Arbeit selbst stellen. Vielen Dank im voraus und viele Grüße --Marbot 18:06, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Ich kann nur aus dem foundationwiki, en:wp, cs:wp und fr:wp importieren. Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 18:31, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Das Importieren in Meta ist nicht das Problem, sondern der Export aus dewiki? --Marbot 21:30, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Mit Importeurrechten soll dies möglich sein. Ist es dringend? Dann mach ich das noch morgen früh, ansonsten reise ich zu w:de:WP:T/K und zum Sightseeing. ;) Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 21:36, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Sofern es im Laufe des Monats klappte, wär das ganz arg toll. Sofern es bis zum 15.08. über die Bühne geht, kannst Du schon diesen Monat ein Club Mate kassieren, ansonsten mußt Du noch etwas länger warten. :-) --Marbot 21:43, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Nachtrag: Mache bezüglich der Rechtevergabe nichts, was Dich in Bedrängnis bringen könnte. Sofer ein Importeur auf dewiki benötigt wird, kann ich ja einen anquatschen. Ansonste wünsche ich Dir ne schöne Zeit in Kölle. :-))

I messed something upEdit

I got an email from Suntag about his inability to edit en.WS. We don't have any local block exemptions. It took me digging around in en.WP to even figure out what he was talking about. So I wanted to ublock the IP locally as it had no local contributions. Well I got confused on which tab I was in and unblocked it locally on en.WP instead of en.WS. I tried to reblock it on en.WP but it said it was already blocked. Can you look at this and make sure it is all good? I am over my head at this point.--BirgitteSB 15:20, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Link FA template in mk.wikipediaEdit

Please if you have a time look at this template and find out why doesn't function properly, i.e. in the feautered articles, for example the last one FA - Gymnastic has {{Link FA|bs}}, but there is no star near bs.wikipedia language in the left language pane. If you have no time to deal with this please direct me to some one else, I try to fix the problem but without success. Thanks in advance. --Brest2007 06:53, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

I see you do something, thanks, but still I can't see the golden star ( ) near the bs. interlanguage link. May be the problem is in Common.css, Common.js, Monobook.js, ... I just suppose.--Brest2007 09:52, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Bot requestEdit

Hallo Hexer, wie lange dauert es hier gewöhnlich, bis bot requests bearbeitet werden? Meine Anfrage ist nun schon zwei Wochen alt. Ich will den obersorbischen Kollegen in ihrer kleinen wiki unter die Arme greifen, ohne die letzten Änderungen mit Bot-Edits vollzumüllen. Bürokraten haben sie keinen, deshalb war ich gezwungen, mich an Meta zu wenden. --Obersachse 09:08, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Solange, bis ein Steward zufälligerweise die Seite findet. Das kann auch mal dauern. :-/ Was du also gerade auf meiner Diskussionsseite gemacht hast, ist (zumindest bei mir momentan) richtig – da konnte ich gleich Marbots Antrag mitabarbeiten. Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 11:17, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Ich nahm an, daß die Stewards die Seite auf ihrer Beobachtungsliste haben. Ich mach das in meiner homewiki so bei den Botanträgen. Danke jedenfalls für die promte Reaktion und das flag. --Obersachse 11:27, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Ja, auch ich habe diese Seite auf meiner Beobachtungsliste, gucke aber (genausowenig wie auf en:wp und den anderen Projekten) regelmäßig darauf. Vielleicht sollte ich es auf meine globale Beobachtungsliste. Grüße und nichts zu danken, —DerHexer (Talk) 11:41, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Ich komm doch noch mal. Irgendwas hängt noch. Hier und hier ist noch nichts zu sehen. Zumindest der letzte Edit hier müßte ja als Bot-Edit gekennzeichnet sein. --Obersachse 13:21, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Flood flagEdit

Hey DerHexer, have you ever considered using the flood flag for sprees of steward actions? It would allow for a much cleaner RC. —Anonymous DissidentTalk 12:50, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes. I've written a script which makes it easier for me to go to Special:CentralAuth on Special:Ipblocklist etc. so that I'll lock and hide some yet unhidden accounts now using the flood flag. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 14:44, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Asking for helpEdit

I am One last pharaoh of the English wikipedia. My IP have been blocked within the scoop of a wider IP range block because of an open proxy or some thing like that, by you. The reason i am contacting you, is that i think that you have set a very far expiration date. Here is a copy of what i have written asking for help; i think you will find out my point. I think that i have been caught in a wide range blocking. I am only one of seven neighbors sharing one server. I have been a Wikipedian for over a year now, have been blocked once for 3RR -for fear of violating it, not because i actually did- and that's all. I have been working on my first article, Fahd armored personnel carrier which have been promoted to B-class status relatively fast, was mentioned in the did you know section in wikipedia's home page, and i was working on some stuff on it with a goal of promoting it to featured article status. I have also been editing other military vehicles articles, where some of these articles contained only one source, no sources and so on, and my edits really boosted their levels. I have been part of the editors discussion group that set the modern MBTs template. I have been one of the first four supporters for the Masry (Modern Egyptian) Wikipedia "arz.wikipedia", and have had some edits on it, but i then switched my interest back to the older, and more organized English Wikipedia. My point is that i am not a vandal, and that i have been innocently caught in an open proxy blocking. I need your advice about what to do, and if there is nothing i can do, then please shorten the blocking period; I am a collge student, so i need to edit wikipedia while i am free. Thanx in advance.

Kannst du bitte...Edit

Anfrage bezüglich CentralNoticeEdit

Hallo, ich habe schon an mehreren Stellen versucht auf mein Problem aufmerksam zu machen, aber keiner Interessiert sich: Talk:Wikimania 2009/CentralNotice#hide empty div from CentralNotice. Da du hier admin bist und auch Kenntnisse von JavaScript hast, wende ich mich direkt an dich.
Das Problem ist, das nach dem ausblenden der CentralNotice im IE7 ein grauer Balken anstelle der CentralNotice zu sehen ist. Dieser wird durch das leere div am Ende erzeugt, so vermute ich. Wenn man dieses ausblenden könnte, wäre das sehr gut. Vielleicht kannst du dies nachvollziehen und beheben? Wenn man direkt auf die Spezialseite geht, sieht man es auch. Vielen Dank für deine Einschätzung. Der Umherirrende 21:57, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Ich hatte und habe leider keine Ahnung diesbezüglich; hätte also nicht helfen können. Mit dem IE7 kenn ich mich leider genausowenig aus und wüsste auch keine Möglichkeit, mit JavaScript das zu lösen (was beim IE dann wohl so oder so Probleme bereiten würde). Entschuldige bitte, dass ich die Absage vorher nicht so direkt ausgesprochen habe. Leider war es mir auch nicht möglich, weiter zu recherchieren, um vielleicht eine Lösung zu finden; momentan bin ich in der Prüfungsphase in meiner Uni und habe dementsprechend noch weniger Zeit als zum Stellen der Frage, als ich die Vorbereitungen (Übersetzungen) für die Prüfungen schreiben musste. Liebe Grüße und noch einmal: Entschuldigung, —DerHexer (Talk) 20:28, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Danke für deine Einschätzung, auch wenn sie mir nicht weiter hilft, mal schauen, ob ich jemand anders anspreche, der auch Ahnung oder zumindestens Zeit hat. Ich fühlte mich ignoriert und habe gedacht, dann braucht es dort auch nicht weiter stehen. Aber ich habe nicht auf Zeitmangel getippt, da du ja zwischenzeitlich aktiv warst und auch den anderen geantwortet hast. Somit ist es nicht schlimm. Viel Glück.

For that script, can you have it add a spinner before it sends the request, and then replace it with a   Done when the request comes back successful (and a   Not done if it returns an error)? Currently there's no way to know whether it succeeded or not (or even whether it finished). Thanks.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:17, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Hallo ich habe versucht zwei Bilder aus Wikipedia zu löschen, ich weiß aber nicht wie das funktioniert.

Ich hab da jetzt nur einen Löschantrag reingeschrieben vieleicht kannst du dir das ja mal ansehen

Werd's mir mal angucken. Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 11:13, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Ich wurde auch auf diese Disk aufmerksam gemacht....
Die Commons sind dafür da um Medien (in der Regel "Bilder") zu sammeln, diese der Allgemeinheit zur Verfügung stellen oder Nachwelt zu erhalten. Das Interesse bei einem historischen Bauwerk, das als Baudenkmal geschützt ist - ist dabei recht hoch (wie das Gesellschaftshaus Concordia). Man darf die Commons nicht als Werbeflyer verwechseln, sondern eher mit einem Archiv vergleichen. Ich habe zum damaligen Zeitpunkt im April 2009 (jeder andere hätte das auch können) ein paar Schnappschüsse rund um das Gebäude gemacht, um möglichst viel der historischen Substanz als Bild festzuhalten. Interessant ist natürlich auch die hölzerne Türe – die leider ihre beste Zeit hinter sich gelassen hat. Mit ein wenig Phantasie kann aber der Betrachter die Zeit zurück drehen und sich vorstellen wie Türe und der Zugang zum Keller einst ausgesehen hat.
Für Löschanträge gibt es auf den Commons ganz klare Richtlinien (Löschrichtlinien) nach welcher Begründung gelöscht werden darf. Unter diesen Gründen fallen: Fehlende Urheberrechtsinformationen, Duplikate oder Redundanz/ (sehr) schlechte Qualität. Im Zusammenhand mit den Urheberrechtsinformationen fallen auch mögliche Verletzungen von persönlichen Rechten, also fremde Menschen darf man nicht ohne Erlaubnis Fotografien – dies trifft ebenfalls bei der Kellertüre nicht zu. Weiter ist das Fotografien (in Deutschland) erlaubt was unter Panoramafreiheit fällt, also vom öffentlichen Raum ohne besondere Hilfsmittel (z.B. Hebebühne) einsichtbar ist. Dies trifft bei der Kellertüre zu, sie war von der Fußgängerzone ohne weiteres für jedermann sichtbar (Link zu Google Maps). Ein Löschgrund wie "gefällt mir nicht" ist kein gültiger Grund. Man kann hier und da immer etwas bemängeln… die Fahrzeuge stehen nicht richtig zum Bordstein ausgerichtet, Von der Fassade blättert ein wenig Farbe ab, der Papierkorb ist etwas zu voll, die Person im Hintergrund ist nicht geschminkt, der Himmel ist nicht so blau wie ich es wünsche und etc. Leider ist es manchmal so, dass Bilder nur eben die Realität abbilden. Nicht mehr…
Wer nicht möchte, dass so etwas veröffentlich wird – muss sich gelegentlich vorher Gedanken machen, welchen Eindruck in der Öffentlichkeit das Erscheinungsbild seines Objektes macht.
Vielleicht sollte man aber froh sein, dass dieser Zugang mit der hölzernen Türe und den Kran über der Treppe überhaupt noch existiert… wie oft wird in heutiger Zeit historisches entsorgt oder es durch eine Katastrophe verloren geht (vgl. Dachstuhlbrand des Rebenhäuschen). --Atamari 18:15, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

I request you to delete my user page [7] and [8] with the whole story, because I do not want a user page files should private information. Thank you immediately. --Žiedas 17:34, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Would you delete (in one go) the user pages on all projects from Aesopos ? They might hold personal information and that is not exactly what the project is deemed for. (^_~) --Aesopos 08:42, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

I just found these pages: w:User:Aesopos, w:s:User:Aesopos and vls:Gebruker:Aesopos which do not contain personal information. Because I'm a sysop on enwiki, I could delete that page there; on enwikisource it might be better to add a deletion template. If you want me to delete your user page on vlswiki, please let me know. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 15:35, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
I leave it up to you, thanks. (^_~) --Aesopos 15:29, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Lemma "Marktl am Inn"Edit

Hallo Hexer, ich sehe in den anderen interwikilinks, dass der Ort Marktl fälschlicherweise oft als Marktl am Inn bezeichnet wird:

cs:Marktl am Inn es:Marktl am Inn fi:Marktl am Inn pt:Marktl am Inn vi:Marktl am Inn

Kannst du die Lemmas in den entsprechenden wikis entsprechend richtig stellen, sofern möglich? Ich finde, die Welt soll den richtigen Namen erfahren. MfG --Sukarnobhumibol 21:14, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Bis auf das erste waren die anderen schon verschoben. Habe dies jetzt noch bei dem genannten getan. Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 20:40, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
Hallo Hexer, danke. Ich konnte in der Zwischenzeit doch die anderen Interwikis verschieben. Probleme gab es bis dato nur noch in der es-wiki (das ist jetzt erledigt) und in der polnischen Wiki (da steht noch das falsche lemma). Mit den allerfreundlichsten Grüßen, --Sukarnobhumibol 05:55, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
Schön! Und entschuldige bitte die späte Antwort. :-/ —DerHexer (Talk) 17:15, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
Du hast halt viel zu tun, da kann die Antwort schon mal länger dauern. :) --Sukarnobhumibol 15:00, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Hallo nochmal, DerHexer (ich denke, das ist das letzte mal dazu): nur noch die polnische wiki hat das Lemma falsch: [15] und dort werde ich wohl nicht so schnell Verschieberecht erhalten... Ich glaube, unseren polnischen Freunden dürfen wir auch nicht die richtige Information vorenthalten. :) Mit den freundlichsten Grüßen --Sukarnobhumibol 11:22, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Jetzt ist auch dies erledigt. Dabei hab ich gleich noch einen Bug gefunden. Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 18:31, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Troubles on the Indonesian WikipediaEdit

It seems that there is a small revolution going on on the Indonesian language Wikipedia. There is now a poll to impeach a sysop who actually has indicated that he would resign because he no longer has access to the Internet. He has already contacted me and other sysops by e-mail regarding his resignation. My specific question is, as a steward, are you able to removed his sysop rights before the actuall poll begins? Thanks in advance. Revi Soekatno aka Meursault2004 08:04, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

If the user confirms on any wiki that he wants to resign, I can remove his user rights. Thanks and regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 20:42, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
OK thanks, this user already confirmed his resignation. Do I have to put this somewhere else? I hope this suffices. Cheers. Meursault2004 09:30, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Apparently another steward already removed his rights. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 23:58, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks anyway :-) Meursault2004 19:11, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Besagter User ist als Admin in wikiquote untragbar. Siehe u. a. hier. Kannst du dagegen was machen? --Sukarnobhumibol 14:55, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Und was auch nicht geht ist das hier. Schreibt einfach in meine Benutzerseite rein, was ich als besonders unhöflich ansehe. Kannst du ihn bitte darauf ansprechen? --Sukarnobhumibol 14:59, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
Ich versuche wikiquote voranzubringen und er scheint das nicht anerkennen zu wollen. Das ist doch keine Art. --Sukarnobhumibol 15:01, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Auch fällt er IMO dadurch auf, dass er dort etwas wirre Aktionen betreibt. Siehe Aktionen betreffend meiner Diskussionsseite dort. Erst unbeschränkt vollschützen und dann kurze Zeit später wieder den Schutz aufhaben. Mir scheint, er hat seine Finger nicht im Griff. Ich verstehe es manchmal nicht... --Sukarnobhumibol 15:22, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Das ist, soweit ich das sehe, ein Problem, das weniger ich als die Community dort lösen kann und sollte. Gibt es denn dort keine Art „Adminnotizen“ oder Vermittlungsausschüsse/Dritte Meinungen? —DerHexer (Talk) 21:52, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you 2Edit

I would like to thank you for your hard work and dedication to the project. During this month, you worked in various time consuming areas, including performing CU and OS duties along with permissions work. As a non-steward, I do not have the ability to know how difficult such actions are, but I am thankful that you is able to devote many hours towards them. You are also regularly available and have always shown yourself to be an important asset to the community. As such, I would like to thank you for all your hard work. You have been entered as the Steward of April 2010 in my Steward Recognition Project for your invaluable work. Thank you. Ottava Rima (talk) 01:46, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

about "Wikipedia:管理员名单" on zh.wikipediaEdit

Hi. I'm one of the admin of At 22 May, 2010, you've used your privilege to hide up a serial of revisions of the page mentioned above. And you just simply said that "remove private information".

Hier hast Du vergessenEdit

Nun "Nonsens" sind zu grossen Teil die Wikipediaartikel (Erklaerung: Es gibt globale Weltbilder und wenn ich die Deutschen Wikipediaartikel lese stelle ich immer wieder fest, dass die Wikipediaartikel oft nicht mit allgemeinen globalen Weltbildern uebereinstimmen. Kurz die Wikipediaartikel sind weit fern von den von mir gedachten Weltbildern -nicht gemeint sind die Vorurteile-) entfernt. Interessant die grundgesetzliche Schreibfreiheit wurde in allen Sprachausgaben der Wikipedia bei dieser IP von Dir/Sie gesperrt. Nun ja, ist ja wie die Zensusbibliothek (Enzyklopedie) des Vatikans. Wie heisst es in der Allgemeinen Erklaerung der Menschenrechte der Generalversammlung der Vereinten Nationen 12. Dezember 1948 "Alle Menschen sind frei" und genau so in der amerikanischen Verfasssung (Verfassungsartikel) "Alle Menschen sind frei". Schau mal auf die Englische Seite Suchwort "List of newspapers in germany". So sieht in Deutschland (auch in der Wikipedia deutsch?) die Pressefreiheit und Meinungsfreiheit aus. Bei deutschen Zeitungen und Zeitschriften darf man nur noch elektronische Leserbriefe (Kommentare, Leserbriefe) veroeffentlichen, wenn man sich vorher registriert (IP Personalausweis Biometrische Merkmale) hat, sich einen festen Usernamen zugelegt hat, und nur auch noch so schreibt, wie es in bestimmten Grenzen der oeffentlichen Meinungsfreiheit (innerhalb der staatlichen elektronischen Zensur oder Schere im Kopf) schriftlich oeffentlich aeussert. Ich finde es schon sehr bemerkenswert, wie das beschuetzentwerte Pflaenzchen der Meinungsfreiheit, Pressefreiheit, Bildungsfreiheit (Kindergarten Schule Berufsausbildung Universitaeten), Denk-und Schreibfreiheit freiwillig und ohne grosse Proteste in der Europaeischen Union und in Deutschland immer weiter in den Jahren 2008 2009 2010 eingeht und verkuemmert. Nun fehlt ja nur noch die Geheime Deutsche Staatspolizei - GESTAPO - und die damit verbundenen Historischen Tatsachen. Freiheit ist nicht der Obrigkeitsstaatliche Befehl, sondern die Meinungsfreiheit und Diskussionsfreiheit. Dies ist aber nicht mit einer diskussionslosen Adminstatorenkultur vereinbar, die nur anonym obrigkeitsstaatliche (europaeische) Befehle ausfuehrt. Wie waere es denn wenn die Millionen Benutzer der Wikipedia mal die Administratoren (Freie geheime Wahlen) waehlen? 07:28, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
Nunja, fremdsprachige Beiträge in anderen Projekten zu setzen, kann man sicherlich nicht nur nationalistisch verfehlt, sondern schlicht und einfach projektstörend bezeichnen. Der Kausalnexus hier ist nicht eindeutig genug, weiter dazu Stellung nehmen zu können. Zudem ziehen Nazivergleiche nicht so wirklich bei mir. Vielleicht arbeitest du ja noch produktiv mit, würde mich zumindest für das Projekt freuen … Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 21:37, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Dear steward, I am a Wikipedia contributor in the Portuguese language and am requesting your intervention in the project. There exists among us a tremendous amount of intrigue, harassment, personal threats, inadequate block, clash of egos and power abuses. I can not stand such injustice, so many users with destructive behavior, so much political intrigue and partiality in administrators. The new users are intimidated and abandon the project, edit wars proliferate and the bad users trying to silence their opponents with lock requests without foundation. Users with bad behavior are protected by administrators and users who try to expose corruption are blocked. The rule is trying to impose views and threaten to block those who disagree with arbitrariness. I am tired. This project is broken, please dismisses administrators and cancel their arbitrary actions, otherwise the credibility of Wikipedia is extinguished. Thank you.

PS:sorry for my bad english. Leandro LV 02:08, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi DerHexer! How are you? Sorry for my poor english. I would like to make my defense to you directly. I am suffering harassment in the pt.Wiki, and all my actions are watched by Ruy Pugliesi and Lucas Teles. Also, these two sysops were accused of using your checkuser's flags to violate my account. So far, no defense, no explanation. The accusation was made by the steward Sir Lestaty (that speak portuguese). Any error of me is a reason for requests of blocks and other punishments. I am innocent (in my opinion) in this case and would like to introduce you diffs (onwiki and offwiki) to highlight. Can I talk to you by mail? I'm afraid to speak here... but I talk, if you want. Thank you ... and happy new year 2011. Fred Xavier 22:04, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Freiwillige RückgabeEdit

Hallo Hexer

Bitte entzieh mir meinen Adminstatus auf wp-de. Seit einigen Tagen läuft eine üble Kampagne gegen mich, die vor Heuchelei und Mobbing nur so strotzt - unterstützt durch den reichlichen Einsatz von IP-Sockenpuppen. Das hat mir gesundheitlich derart stark zugesetzt, dass ich schlicht nicht die Kraft aufbringe, mich einem gehässigen Wiederwahlzirkus zu stellen. Die freiwillige Rückgabe wird hoffentlich dazu beitragen, dass ich den Spass an Wikipedia nicht vollends verliere. --voyager 15:33, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Probleme mit verschiedenen Wikipedia Benutzern: (Deutsche Wikipedia)Edit

Hiermit reiche ich Beschwerde gegen folgende Benutzer die ihren Account missbrauchen ein: Eike beschimpft mich zuerst als "den üblichen Troll" und veranlasste eine Sperre für meinen Account. Benutzer:He3nry sperrte darauf meinen Account. Benutzer:XenonX3 beschimft mich als "Jaja, lieber Suchhilfe-Troll" nachdem ich eine Beschwerde gegen die ersten beiden Benutzer auf der Valdalismusmeldung gemacht habe, und löschte meine Beiträge die ich danach als IP getätigt habe. Benutzer:Hozro löscht meine Beiträge damit ich mich nicht wehren kann.

Ich habe diesen Account Benutzer:Fragesteller1 auf Anraten von Benutzer:Seewolf angelegt da es zeitweise Probleme mit Edits als IP gibt (Missbrauchsfilter). Ich versichere dass ich mit den unwahren Behauptungen die die obigen Benutzer gegen mich machen nichts zu tun habe bis jetzt als IP nur sinvolle beiträge getätigt habe und bitte um rasche Aufhebung der Sperre und geiegnete Massnahmen gehen die obigen Benutzer. Danke!

Ausserdem wurde meine bitte um Hilfe bei dem Benutzer:Seewolf wurde von Benutzer:Hozro gelöscht und auf der Ombudsmann-Diskussionsseiteseite [[17]] meine Beschwerden verfälscht beziehungsweise gelöscht.

Bitte um Rat denn es darf ja nicht sein mit unwahren Behauptungen ganz einfach so auf andere Benutzer einzutreten. Die oben genannten Benutzer löschen außerdem meine Beiträge damit ich mich nicht wehren kann. Danke!

Ich habe bereits dieses Problem auf der Sperrprüfung beschrieben sodass es jetzt für mich als IP nicht mehr möglich die in die Sperrprüfung zu schreiben da ich Folgende Meldung Bekomme:

Diese Aktion wurde automatisch als schädlich erkannt und deshalb nicht ausgeführt. Wenn du denkst, dass dein Beitrag konstruktiv war, wende dich bitte an einen Administrator und schildere ihm, was du versucht hast beizutragen. Kurzbeschreibung der verletzten Regel: Suchhilfe-Schutz

Capsot's messageEdit

Dear Administrator and/or Steward,

My username is Capsot, and I think everyone here knows me... I apologize for using a new account but you all seem impervious to my case and I beg you to judge my case soon (because I cannot work on any projects and mainly on the Occitan Wiktionary) and determine truly what I am guilty of, initiate an investigation and determine if I am really guilty or if, in my opinion, some administrators acted too rashly and abused their administrative rights in ways that could be seen as totalitarian. It all seems as if there was some kind of scheme in which the only goal is to keep me from editing and voicing my opinions or concerns aloud; and I hope you will act consequently with justice and equity. It is not good for me and it may damage your credibility on the long run.

I wish I could have used other ways to reply but well in spite of the following message that seems to leave a last chance to speak your mind: "Blocked users can edit their own user talk page, unless specifically disallowed from doing so"; it seems that Magistral Mathematicae, who seem to believe I am Catalan, resorted to the more violent option, leaving me no other way to express my opinion than to create new accounts endlessly (I have serious concerns about freedom of speech here and it seems that I am not the only one, I have seen some other reverts... I hope you will prove me/us it exists)

I am really troubled by what happens here because even though I can take the blame of all of my actions if you can prove my infringements, I do not understand the current situation that blocks all my edits in each and every one of the Wikipedia projects. I stand here to be judged, some day I hope, by a Committee of Administrators or any Boards that make decisions here because I do not think this process has been done until this moment, and that my account has been blocked for many days now mainly, in my opinion, on false grounds.

  • It seems that the main accusation that led to the block of all my accounts is: sockpuppet accounts [[18]].

However if I am not wrong (I have read what the Wikipedias say, but I guess you are experts and know much more than I do what the thing means) the general principle of sockpuppetry is to desguise or hide the true identity of the user (mainly in order to deceive or vandalize), and I have never done such a thing.

Either my accounts (Capsot's ghost and Brave Capsot's Heart had the name Capsot clearly visible on them (that is why I was blocked again so easily, had I used malice you would not have found me so easily...) or in the case of Wikiporros (in the Catalan Viquipèdia) or Wikipuerros (in the Spanish Wikipedia) I clearly said they were "vegetablegängers" accounts of User Capsot, but probably the allusion to "doppelgänger accounts" was too misleading to be understood...

I think, but I can be wrong, that there is no real problem in having multiple accounts as long as you state who they belong to and I did, especially in the "doppelgänger" ones but then it would be another accusation, not sockpuppetry: I admit it I am guilty of creating multiple accounts after I was blocked

So what can be the other charges I am responsible for? Please tell me, I am eager to know so I can defend myself and respond to the accusation(s)/prosecution(s), an option nobody had given to, nor seem willing to be giving, me until now. I would also greatly appreciate that you stated publicly and clearly in some page of your Arbitration Committee, if there are any, what are the other charges against me so I can respond to my prosecutors. Let it be known which users have left complaints so I can try to provide answers.

  • I am also afraid that most, if not all (at first until Samuel Klein's message), of the messages I have sent were erased without even checking what they contained, and many users (Austin Hair and Samuel Klein) restored what you had erased. Samuel Klein also emitted a concern, not understanding clearly why I am blocked for (he thinks I am just blocked in Meta, I do not think he know you have blocked me on a general level).

I am confident that many of you act decently and honestly so I have faith that a proper attention and unbiased justice will be applied to my case. Thank you in advance. Sincerely,

Claudi Balaguer/Capsot

Ps: In the case you open the discussion I promise not to open any other accounts before the conclusion of it all. Thank you!

Removal of accessEdit

Hi, Can you please remove my sysop flag on fawikinews and testwiki. Thank you very much. --Mjbmr Talk 10:03, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes templateEdit

Hi! Could you please stop doing this? There's no policy that I know of that steward votes should be marked with the green flag, and it's not very nice to edit other people's comments without even letting them know about it. Regards, Jafeluv 22:47, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

We steward decided to use green or red flags for ourselves to make decisions more easy so that everybody can see which votes will be counted, also for that steward who decides. That's imho a valid reason to use these flags and each steward should do that too. I have not changed your comment but added a recommended flag before it like adding a * which is missing and where I would not have let you know about it either. So I would kindly ask you to use that flag to make my and other's life easier. Thanks and kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 09:42, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, I have to admit this is the first time I hear about such a decision. When/where was that decided? I've always been under the impression that global rights requests are (global) community discussions, not votes between stewards. Jafeluv 09:54, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Hmmm, didn't you tell me above about this template? axpdeHello! 15:38, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
I certainly didn't mean that it was obligatory for stewards to use the green flag (nor is there any written rule that I know of). Jafeluv 16:10, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm not sure whether it is obligatory or just useful. There are some major issues in real life which prevent me from investigating that precisely. I hope you understand that. —DerHexer (Talk) 19:50, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
Of course. No worries, it's not like it's an urgent matter or anything :) I'll try to find out if there was an earlier discussion somewhere. Jafeluv 19:56, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Username changeEdit

selamatkan akuEdit

Hello, are you steward? Help me! Because I was blocked there (accusation) canvassing at Indonesian Wikipedia. And lately I've never done anything like that. Just look list contribution at there. Please (if possible) revoked the block status.

Oh ya, I also ask to release the SockPuppet I was there named id:User: Erik Evermtus at Indonesian Wikipedia because this account will be used as a substitute if the main account stolen by others such as id:User:Kenrick95Sock. Thank you --Erik Evrest 04:52, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Translator, We need you!Edit

Dear DerHexer,

You have helped us in previous years with translations and for that we are most grateful. Now we turn towards the 2011/12 fundraiser. It may seem forever away, but work has already begun getting everything ready to go. This year we want to have landing pages covering as many countries in as many languages as possible.

Right now, we want to figure out who is interested in translating for the fundraiser. This year we're hoping to have more of a solidified "core" group of translators that we can count on to have work done by a few key dates, but we'd also welcome help from people who are willing to just help out when they can.

If you would be interested please take a look at this little sign-up survey and fill it out With that we can start building a list of people and filling any gaps in the languages we serve.

Many Thanks

Hallo, dieses Mal hier zur Abwechslung, nicht auf dewiki... Ich habe mal dieses gefunden Wikimedia Foundation Report, October 2010, wo unter Board of Trustees Meeting ganz unten steht "...discussion about development of a policy prohibiting both on- and off-wiki harassment of Wikimedia project participants...", und ferner, dass a draft policy dann irgendwann in early November (d.h. 2010, nehmeih an) fertig sein sollte. Das finde ich aber nicht. Kennst du etwas in der Richtung? Gruß -jkb- 15:52, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Benutzernamen ändernEdit

Hallo Hexer,
Ich wollte meinen Benutzernamen global ändern, aber wie man mir gesagt hat, ist das leider unmöglich. Vielleicht weisst Du, ob es existiert etwas Bot-Bureaucrat oder..., der kann meinen Namen in jede Projekt ändern? Ich habe einfach kein Lust auf mehr als 500 Bürokraten zu warten :)
Danke und Grüße, — D.DEU. 18:08, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Soetwas gibt's leider nicht. Man könnte dies mit einem Skript erledigen. Soweit ich weiß, ist das auch schon einmal gemacht worden. Und die lokalen Bürokraten haben sich darüber beschwert. Das muss schon überall einzeln beantragt werden, leider. Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 23:13, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Thank you! And a request...Edit

Thank you very much for your help with translation here! My German is still a little rusty. Also, I see that you're a member of the election committee. I have voiced a concern at Talk:Stewards/elections 2011-2/Guidelines, and I just want to make sure that a bot won't automatically remove my candidacy due to an error. Thanks again, Quadell 13:53, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Hallo zurück! :-) —DerHexer (Talk) 22:44, 17 September 2011 (UTC)


Hi DerHexer, does this mean that the local account unmerging at CentralAuth no longer works? :o Regards, Jafeluv 12:52, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

When did you do that for the last time? Afair we couldn't (un)merge local accounts for years. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 13:14, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Just did a test, and to me it looks like unmerging the test2wiki account worked fine. (What's interesting, though, is that the action doesn't appear in any of my Meta logs.) Is there something I'm missing? Jafeluv 14:01, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
You're right. I was wrong. Seem to have mixed something up. —DerHexer (Talk) 14:35, 27 September 2011 (UTC)


I see you found your way around the Italian wiki blackout. [19] < The first link listed as Swedish for some reason has Dutch text. Seb az86556 08:11, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Are you sure? It's hosted on a Swedish website and Google translate auto-selects Swedish language. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 21:24, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
I am sure; first link said "Wikipedia haalt Italiaanse pagina's van het net" — but somebody fixed it already, apparently... because when I came by, the talkpage was blocked/redirected. not anymore :P Seb az86556 21:38, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Hm, okay. ;o) —DerHexer (Talk) 11:39, 7 October 2011 (UTC)


Hi there! Why did you do this?, please take a look to this result. Has something changed in the last few months? Regards. Jaontiveros 15:17, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

According to Stewards/elections 2011-2/Guidelines you “must have a global account (or an account on Meta with user page linked to your main wiki, and a link to your meta account from your home wiki user page)”. Unortunately, you haven't linked your account here (User:Jaontiveros) to your Spanish account so that we couldn't entirely be sure whether these to accounts are the same. Sorry that your vote couldn't be counted this time. Please either use es:Special:MergeAccount to get a global account (even if it's not completed) or confirm on meta and eswiki that both accounts are used by the same person. Thank you and kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 16:30, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Import und ExportEdit

Hallo, Hexer,
köntest du mir erklären, wie man einen Artikel nach einer anderen Wiki exportieren kann? Ich brauche es oft (kawiki → kawiktionary), aber leider kann nicht. Ich bin ein Administrator in kawiki und kawiktionary, so ich darf ja es machen? Hier (Import des Artikels) ist geschrieben, dass es unmöglich ist... Vielleicht gibt es ein technisches Problem, oder?
Grüße, — D.DEU. 13:38, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Hiding namesEdit

I was wondering - when a Steward locks an account and hides a name because of personal information, who can see that hidden name? This concerns me, because Stewards are assumed to be the most trusted and therefore are supposed to be trusted with this information. But why would other people who were not trusted enough to be Stewards to be able to see them? Ottava Rima (talk) 20:15, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Stewards and local oversights (plus maybe staff/developers) are able to see them. Do you know other users who are able to do that? Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 20:54, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
I know of one non-Steward who can see them. I would think that since he was not elected to be a Steward that this would be a concern, no? Perhaps since Meta displays cross-wiki stuff then only a cross-wiki voted user who is trusted by the WMF communities as a whole should be allowed to see the material. That would effective remove any reason to have local OS here and instead be reason why Stewards should have constant OS here while they serve as Stewards. Ottava Rima (talk)


Hello DerHexer. I noticed you have StewardScript commented out in User:DerHexer/monobook.js and User:DerHexer/vector.js. I just rewrote StewardScript, so it's now compatible with the recent MediaWiki changes and has all the previous features (except instant checkuser, due to changes in MediaWiki's security). I updated the code in your JavaScript, so you just need to uncomment it if you're interested. —Pathoschild 23:32:03, 04 December 2011 (UTC)

Hey :) I've took the liberty of asking a dewiki sysop to perform this fix to your revisionjumper script. I'm not js guru and I know it doesn't fix it for the users but at least it will fix it for everybody else, afaik. When you can, I assume you'll want to fix it for those as well, but I'll leave that to you. Snowolf How can I help? 08:08, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

I fixed it, thanks! :-) —DerHexer (Talk) 11:11, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

Steward confirmationEdit

This has a serious error.

"Magister Mathematicae yes 5/0/0 Concerns over local conduct on eswiki (nothing however related to steward work)."

I and many others expressed concerns that were global, not connected to eswiki. Drini had a long history of immaturity and combativeness across multiple wikis, IRC, etc. There were also expressed concerns that there were misused tools on multiple Wikis, intimidation and threat to misuse tools, etc. The summary really does no justice to the statements and does not represent the vast majority of people who were opposed to Drini. Why bother having a confirmation if people's honest statements are ignored? There was a clear consensus to remove. These kind of actions make the WMF look like it obviously has no care for appropriate governance. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:32, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

While not meaning to reply on DerHexer's behalf nor expressing any opinion on the matter, I happened to have this page watchlisted so I wanted to point out that the 5/0/0 and the comment come from the Election Committee, of which DerHexer wasn't a member this year. Snowolf How can I help? 00:36, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Doesn't matter if DerHexer is a member or not. All stewards are allowed to critique the process. DerHexer just happens to be one of the few that actually cares about such things as I pointed out. Ottava Rima (talk) 04:39, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
While I personally disagree with the decision about drini, stewards never had to approve the decision made by the ElectCom. If I'd been in the ElectCom I would have argued and voted against this confirmation, but would have had just one voice. Furthermore, I know that drini explained himself on our steward wiki what finally convinced the ElectCom. Unfortunally, this explanation was quite long and I haven't had enough time to read it entirely. So for now, I (have and want to) accept the decision made by the ElectCom. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 13:08, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Why is Drini able to give a private, one sided statement that convinces a small group of people but is immune to the needs of the community as a whole? Isn't that a problem with the process? Stewards should be the best - best attitude, best ability, etc. If any of them have any flaws, that shows poorly on the rest. The people are supposed to be there to point out the flaws but there is no more accountability. If Drini wanted to defend himself why did he not make it public? Isn't a private defense just more of the same problem? Ottava Rima (talk) 16:59, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
I don't think DerHexer is able to answer these questions - you should go to Drini I'm afraid. Trijnsteltalk 17:15, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
DerHexer is one of the most respected of the Stewards. His opinion on proper behavior for other stewards cannot be matched, especially not by an individual which the community has shown no confidence in and has made it clear that he will publicly abuse his power while privately making whatever arrangements to keep it. DerHexer is an advocate for what is right, and there is no one else who has shown integrity like he. Ottava Rima (talk) 20:41, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
If I recall correctly, Magister Mathematicae said that he'd no problems to post his statement also on meta again. Just ask him to do so. -Barras talk 23:34, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
It is far too late. Where was the statement at the beginning and always public? A child with their hand caught in the cookie jar will always claim that they weren't going for a cookie, didn't want a cookie, and whatever else they can. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:43, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Sue's documentEdit

Hi. :) I actually like your wording change here, but I've changed it back to what Sue said. This isn't a draft document, but a record of the recommendation that Sue actually already has delivered to the Board. She asked that we put it here so that people could see what she recommended. The Board, of course, may choose to adopt or modify her recommendation or go an entirely different direction, but it's really important, I think, that we keep it as Sue submitted it so that people can see what she actually said to them. :) --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 15:34, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Okay; I seem to have missed the I in “However, I would be very pleased to hear if anything in the recommendations is ambiguous or otherwise confusing, because I would like to fix anything like that before the Board votes.” Shall I protect this page? Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 16:02, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
