Thank you very much. :)--Shanel 23:16, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Hello. Actually, I suppressed the juriwiki mailing list not so long ago. It was completely dead and I forgot to update the pages. So there is no more "legal department" on the volunteer side of things. But if you're interested in getting a list back on track, you're welcome! notafish }<';> 09:17, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
- Hi. Mike Godwin is indeed employed as General Counsel of the Wikimedia Foundation, so yes, there is professional legal work being done. The juriwiki list and the "legal department" was more of a "volunteer" initiative. It died because not enough people were interested in pursuing it. You might want to get in touch with User:Tomos he was the most interested of all. notafish }<';> 19:57, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I've reverted your changes to the page. The project has been abandoned since December 2006 and its reactivation would need to be based on consensus - and most importantly agreement from the Foundation. Whilst I admire your enthusiasm, it really isn't appropriate for you to declare yourself coordinator of the Wikimedia Legal Department without consultation with the Foundation - especially as by our own admission you don't have any background or experience regarding legal issues . I think you misunderstood Notafish's invitation to get things back on track above. This would require a formal proposal to reactivate the group showing that there was now sufficient interest from people competent to be a part of it. I really would advise that you leave Wikimedia legal matters to those officially authorised to deal with them. WJBscribe (talk) 19:01, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
- I have no prejudice against you due to your being a student, though I think it is important that everyone acknowledges their limitations. Users under the age of 18 have made very competent administrators, but responding to legal matters can cause a lot more problems than the day-to-day tasks administrators perform. Even with 2 degrees in law, I would be very cautious in approaching legal questions affecting Wikimedia - mistakes can have serious consequences both for the Foundation and for the person giving incorrect information. Mike Godwin is employed by the Foundation as legal counsel. His authority to deal with legal matters would include seeking opinions from other lawyers and he could request that a volunteer support body be set up if he thought that would be useful. There are also various people who are trusted to reply to legal queries sent to OTRS. I think a bit of sense would have suggested that a group answering legal queries was something the Foundation would need to approve and the tag on Legal department said: "If you want to revive discussion regarding the subject, you can use the talk page or start a discussion on the community discussion page". If you think such a department is needed, I suggest you make your case at Wikimedia Forum. WJBscribe (talk) 17:05, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Hi. Sorry for a very slow responce. But yes, as Notafish mentioned above, I would be interested in having a legal department.
What I would be most interested is an informal, non-public place to discuss legal issues and share information among people from different jurisdictions. It is not an advisory group for the Foundation, not a task force to tackle a particular legal problem, or a swift responce team for urgent legal matters. Sufficient number of willing and trustworthy jurists should be among the members, non-jurists willing to study and contribute to the group would be welcome. If I were to organize a group, I would actually call is a forum not a department.
But you might have some other vision. I would be open to other types of group that deals with legal matters. Tomos 06:00, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Hai Diagramma Della Verita, apakah Anda dapat membantu menerjemahkan ini? Terima Kasih
Pemilihan Penyelia ms.wikiEdit
Hi, I apm not sure what's confusing about the license of the wikipostcard. I would be happy to help you if you're a little more precise about it. One thing is sure, the image description on your derivative lacks the most important informations of both licences, ie. source and author name. Thank you for adding them to your version. Best! notafish }<';> 09:28, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

I'd like to have a meeting on IRC this week to discuss the 2010-2011 annual appeal/fundraiser. This will be an "anyone is welcome" type meeting, open to the broad community. During this, Zack Exley and I will take you through our inital thoughts about the fundraiser and its organization, and ask you to join us in a discussion about the (massive) role of volunteers and chapters in this year's fundraiser.
Because of the vagaries of time zones, scheduling live meetings is hard. So, we'll have a couple of potential times, and we'll log and post the meeting for anyone who wasn't able to make it.
The meetings will be held Thursday, 12 August at 23:00 UTC (16:00 PDT) and Friday, 13 August at 16:30 UTC (09:30 PDT) in the #wikimedia-fundraising channel on the freenode network on IRC (irc://irc.freenode.net/wikimedia-fundraising). You can access this using freenode's webclient, which is available at http://webchat.freenode.net/ or by using your favorite IRC client.
Hope to see you there! Philippe (WMF) 20:45, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
Hi Diagramma, great you also created a page for social media.  I also created a page and was about to link it to the fundraising template. I am going to post my proposal and use yours, if its ok with you. someone might need to delete the one I created. Thanks.--Theo10011 17:43, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
- No problem, I am going to put my proposal there, I would love any input and would appreciate any further help. Thanks.--Theo10011 17:52, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Excellent idea Diagramma, I just entered some of the most popular names on the list of target sites to start with, categorizing them by their content would be the ideal way to go about this.--Theo10011 18:15, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Hi Diagramma, theres been a lot of discussion on the social media page and the relevant talk page, I think we are making some great progress there. I would like to ask for your input on some of the new discussions, please take a look when you have some time. --Theo10011 23:53, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
Leaving this here as well since I saw you guys were interested and I had responded. Wanted to try and drive you guys back to that page to be central :) Jalexander 19:33, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
Your inquiry on my talk pageEdit
I've responded there. I'm also asking Deniz, from my office, who is my contact for social media, to join in. Philippe (WMF) 17:17, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for showing interest in the fundraising committee. You can see that we've started to develop the Committee structure and I'd like to encourage your thoughts and participation in the formulation of the important role Wikimedians will play in our drive this year. Please leave me a message if you have a specific request from me, otherwise head to the talk pages and lets get started brainstorming! Keegan (WMF), Fundraising 2010 04:28, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
Social Media PlanEdit
Hi Diagramma, As you might know that we are approaching the start of the fundraiser. I would like to ask for your participation in the finalization of the Social Media plan over the next week. We will be posting a final plan on the Social Media page formulated from the previous discussions and suggestions we received on that page. As an active member of the Fundraising committee your input and feedback would be highly appreciated. Regards. Theo (WMF) 23:42, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
- Hi Diagramma, I asked my colleague Sam Chapman to help with the translation request. I can't edit the bot posted message on WPs now, Sam will reach out through the mailing list and other contacts. I hope that would suffice. Thanks. Theo (WMF) 18:58, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
SM Team meetingEdit
Hey Diagramma, we're having a SM/Outreach meeting tomorrow November 11 in #wikimedia-SMconnect at 19:00/7PM UTC. If you can't make it, no worries: we'll log the chat and be available for questions/recaps. Hope to see you there! --Deniz (WMF) 18:49, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
I want to thank you for your help translating the Bahasa Melayu core messages, we have a few more translations to go... The 2010 Fundraiser is live and has greatly benefited from all the contributions from our translators. Throughout the fundraiser there will continue to be a need for help with translating and localizing messages. Currently, the core messages need to be updated, as there have been recent additions to the request. You can find all translation requests at the translation hub on meta and you can follow the progress of the fundraiser in real time by tracking the fundraiser statistics. Also if you haven't already, you can subscribe to the translators-l mailing list for all new requests and major changes. Many thanks for your help in truly making this a global fundraiser that you can edit.Klyman 18:39, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
Editor Appeals Need TranslationsEdit
Change in translationsEdit
Hi, and thank you for your activity with fundraiser translations so far!! I have one small request to make: We had to change three of the appeals; the change is the same in all of them, and the replacement text is quite short, so I don't want to e-mail people just to fix that, and that's why I'm asking you instead. It would be great if you could do the following fixes in Malay:
Since these are small changes you don't have to go through the cycle of having it proofread and everything, unless you are unsure about the translation. Thanks in advance. :-) Jon Harald Søby (WMF) 05:34, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
A barnstar for you!Edit
Hi! I just want to thank you and give you this barnstar for your help with the translation of the 2011 fundraiser! The fundraiser was the best we ever had, both in terms of the amount we collected and in terms of number of translations. We couldn't have done either one without the help we got from you and other translators. If you are interested, we made a report, which has some statistics about the translations.
And: I have one more request, and that is that you take this survey. You may have got an e-mail about it, and if you did, please ignore this. But if you didn't it would be great if you would take this survey too, so we can learn to improve the translation experience.
Again, thanks for your help with translations – you're awesome! Jon Harald Søby (WMF) 13:27, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
Dear Diagramma Della Verita, I am contacting you to introduce myself. My name is Jessica Robell and I have recently joined the Wikimedia Foundation as a part of the fundraising team. My work will be focused to a large extent around translations. I am very interested in finding engaged Wikipedians, such as yourself, who would be interested in contributing with their time to translate shorter text from English to Malay. I know that you have been an active translator for the fundraising campaign previous years and I would be most grateful to get your support also this year. To begin with, we have for example recently put up a 'Thank you letter' from the Wikimedia Foundation's ED Sue Gardner for translation, using the translation extension. You can find the letter here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-Fundraising%2FTranslation%2FThank+you+email+20131202&language=ml&filter=translated&action=translate
Furthermore, in addition to using the translation extension, my aim is to develop a few personal contacts to whom I can reach out with potential questions regarding a particular word choice etc. As an engaged Wikipedia translator, I would be very interested in hearing your view on this.
Translate some names for hundreds software projects including MediaWikiEdit
Hello, I'm writing you because you subscribed to a Language support team. As you know, Wikimedia projects exist in almost 300 languages; supporting them all is a big effort so we partner with other organisations. One small but visible thing we miss is that many interwiki links in sidebar (among others) don't offer a translation of the language name when hovered. We're now able to translate 100 more language names in your language.
If you're interested, I can create you an account to submit translations on the CLDR web tool (within June 14): please send an email to ask one and I'll follow up with instructions. On CLDR you can translate and tweak many other things, if you desire; your work will impact hundreds of software projects. Thanks, Nemo 17:58, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Dear Diagramma Della Verita, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.
- Request for comment: Requests for comment/Superprotect rights
- An open letter about its implementation: Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer

Should FuzzyBot remove all potentially outdated translations?Edit
Hello, thanks for adding multiple new translations in your language here at Meta-Wiki in recent years. Please join the discussion with your opinion: Should FuzzyBot automatically remove all potentially outdated translations?. Nemo (talk) 12:01, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
