Mistake locking a WMF account?


Hi, I just saw you locked Awight with the reason "No longer works for wmf", but this doesn't seem to be a WMF account. Could you double check and see if Awight (WMF) is the one you intended to lock? Thank you. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 01:54, 23 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi, Thank you for catching that! Iv'e unblocked Awight and blocked Awight(WMF) — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ERoss (WMF) (talk) 02:09, 23 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hello Emerauld,

Stas does not longer works for WMF. Do you think it is possible to add the template FormerStaff to pages of Employees of the WMF who no longer work there. So the people see that they dont recieve a answer from this person. In Wikidata someone asked Stas in his role of an employee after he left WMF and so he did not recieved an answer and then somenone else told him that he does not longer work for WMF. That is something what is not good because not in every time somebody else reads it and has further informations. I think there are other Employes who dont work for WMF and dont have something like the mentioned template on their user page. -- Hogü-456 (talk) 18:20, 30 September 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi Hogü-456 (talk), this is done. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ERoss (WMF) (talk) 18:08, 2 October 2019 (UTC)Reply

At his page in Wikidata I dont see that there is a information that he no longer works for WMF. Can you please add it there. Is it possible to get an overview about the number of local user pages of a user. For cases like that it were useful. To Make sure that all pages have the information needed. -- -Hogü-456 (talk) 17:47, 31 October 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi. Did you lock the correct account? MaxSem seems to the the users private account and MaxSem (WMF) the staff account. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:05, 25 November 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi -- Tegel (Talk) thanks for this, the hiring manager listed MaxSem as the account to cut access for. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ERoss (WMF) (talk) 18:20, 25 November 2019 (UTC)Reply

THargrove (WMF)


Hi. I saw that you locked Special:CentralAuth/THargrove (WMF) - can you also remove their WMF Support and Safety rights? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 17:39, 15 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

@DannyS712: Office IT people don't have enough on-wiki permissions to do that; but I removed Ty's permissions as soon as I saw the lock on IRC, and informed JSutherland (WMF) which was okay with the action. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:47, 15 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

Ruwiki ArbCom email


Hi! I'm from ruwiki ArbCom, for the convenience of mailing, we would like to create a mailbox connected to a google group.

Daniel Zahn on said we should address you or someone from to help us with this.

If it is easier, then we are completely satisfied if emails to would forward to an existing group (which is used by ruwiki ArbCom from 2006 for archival purposes: only acting arbitrators can send letters to it, but I added as an address, from which it can receive emails), if not, then the method convenient for you will do.

You didn't happen to have created a Miraheze account yesterday, did you? Because there's a an account claiming to be you on there. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 19:22, 3 August 2021 (UTC)Reply
