Welcome to Meta! edit

Hello Ezarate!, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Happy editing! — Mikhailov Kusserow (talk) 03:37, 8 June 2009 (UTC)Reply

Identification edit

I have sent you an email about the way that you can identify yourself to wikimedia foundation which is mandatory for all candidates Mardetanha talk 17:38, 2 May 2011 (UTC)Reply

candidate statement - please clarify edit

Hi, I am translating your candidate statement now and I am not sure if "reviewer" is the same as "patroller" or maybe it is plainly someone who edits content to make it better. Ofrahod 07:30, 6 May 2011 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for your translation!, I can edit protected pages and validate news --Esteban 19:34, 6 May 2011 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for the clarification. In this case I think I should use the Hebrew equivalent for w:Wikipedia:Administrators. Let me know if you think this term isn't accurate. Ofrahod 06:16, 7 May 2011 (UTC)Reply
I just found that reviewer is a formal term. Unfortunately, I don't know of a Hebrew equivalent. I will use something along the line of "privileged editor". Good luck with the elections! Ofrahod 06:31, 7 May 2011 (UTC)Reply

Questions to Board candidates edit

Based on the statistics concerning the number of pages read in previous years' Q&As, I infer that few voters take them into account. Personally, I see it as a very interesting exercise despite the fact that we the candidates are also the main readers. I believe it is a unique type of debate among us that is especially interesting.

I have noticed that User Alecmconroy suggested a very interesting series of questions on strategic issues. They can be seen here: User talk:Alecmconroy#More questions for Board Candidates (or others). I have given my opinion, but I see he has not communicated directly to the candidates this set of questions. Perhaps you find them interesting.

I wish you the best possible result in these elections and, if you agree, I suggest that we continue having this type of debate regardless of who is chosen.

Cheers and good luck.--Gomà 09:25, 29 May 2011 (UTC)Reply

Posted to all candidates talk page:

To aid in the fair evaluation of all the candidates, especially those not active on EnWiki, verifiable data about the candidates is being compiled. Anyone is invited to help compile the data since it is all publicly available on-wiki.

But since the people best qualified to help are the candidates themselves, it seems reasonable to ask:

  • Which languages do you speak? (voter statement)
  • Which projects do you contribute to?
    • For each, when was your first edit?
    • For each, how many total edits? (exact figures not need)
  • Which projects are you an admin on?
  • Are you a bureaucrat? which projects? when?
  • Are you a CheckUser? Which projects? When did you start??
  • Are you a steward? If so when were you made one?
  • Have you served in a verifiable leadership role on a project? (e.g. Like EnWiki's Founder or Arbcom member)
  • Have you served in a verifiable leadership role on at the Chapter or Foundation level? (Trustee, etc)

Are there any objectively verifiable facts that should be included in this guide but aren't?

(Incidentally, this document won't reflect my own personal values or wikipolitical opinions. Ideally it will come to exist outside of my userspace in some neutral, visible location. -- Alecmconroy)

Your steward statement edit

Hi there! We just worked on translating your statement into German, but failed at the following sentence: I like also in cooperate finding alternatives to attract new editors and avoid to miss them in the different wikis, overall in the smaller wikis which don't have many active sysops. — we don't get the meaning. Also, I fixed some typos on your English statement. Can you please rewrite the sentence? Thanks and good luck for the elections. -Barras 20:45, 22 August 2011 (UTC)Reply

Ups... yo no sé alemán. Si lo quieres expresado en inglés de otra manera, se me ocurre esto:

Also, I want to help the wikimedia projects –specially the smaller ones– find and apply new ways to keep old editors and invite new editors to join us.

Translations in your steward statement edit

Hello Esteban. I just translated your statement in French [1]. But it may contain errors, especially because I think that your english and spanish statements are saying different things. I don't really have understand if you want, as a steward, to help small wikis and to find alternatives to attract new editors (what the spanish (if I'm true), and by consequent the french statement, are saying) ; or if you're already doing these things (what your english statement is saying).

¿Qué te pasó por la cabeza para venir a solicitar a meta el cierre de la elección de wikiquote, cuando se discutió en esa wiki que se dejaría abierta de forma intencional y aún no había sido cerrada?

Solicitudes… edit

Esteban: la próxima vez que realices una solicitud tan seria como ésta, te pido seas más cuidadoso. Al momento que formulaste la desysop de Fidel, estrictamente, aún le faltaban 20 horas para cumplir los dos años de inactividad. Te pregunto ¿qué hubiese ocurrido si gracias a tu aviso (también apresurado porque aún no le retiran los permisos), se loguea y realiza una acción de bibliotecario? Por fortuna, eso no ocurrió y sólo quedó en un desliz tuyo. Por eso, la próxima vez, no te cuesta nada verificar tanto el historial, como el registro antes de realizar una solicitud y, una vez atendida, avisarle que dejó de ser bibliotecario y realizar los cambios pertinentes. Un saludo, BetoCG (talk) 21:45, 12 November 2012 (UTC)Reply

No te preocupes edit

Hola Ezarate. Nos gustaría felicitarlo sinceramente por ser un Steward que participó en las elecciones hasta el final. Es cierto, el resultado ha sido satisfactorio. Pero el fracaso es un éxito en sí mismo. Voy a seguir siendo fieles a las políticas cada vez más eficientes y la justicia será de su trabajo. sinceramente, --►Cekli829 06:37, 28 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

Traduzco al español. Mucho gusto Esteban Zárate, 00:31, 22 July 2013 (UTC)Reply

Fundraising translation feedback edit

Hey Ezarate,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Spanish using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

Many Thanks

Superprotect status edit

Dear Ezarate, 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.

Global ban RfC edit

Hola Esteban. Espero ante todo que estés bien. Por favor cuídate. Te quería comentar que me he visto obligado a cerrar la RfC por el que solicitabas un global ban para LocoWiki porque no cumplía con los requisitos de la política Global_bans#Obtaining_consensus_for_a_global_ban. En especial, tanto el usuario como las comunidades donde el usuario ha participado deben ser informadas de la discusión, de tal modo que la propia política indica que si ello no ocurre la solicitud ha de ser cerrada como inválida. Si todavía sigues interesado en pedir un global ban para ese usuario puedes abrir una nueva RfC y pedir ayuda con las notificaciones crosswiki en WM:RFH.
