Talk:Stewards/elections 2005


hello, Fantasy. on this page, i made this change (thomas7...). revert, modify... as usual here ;D Alvaro 23:50, 2005 May 17 (UTC)

Perfect, thanks for letting me know :-) Fantasy 08:03, 18 May 2005 (UTC)Reply



Hi Fantasy, would you let me know in what reasons you granted Flabot bot status on Japanese Wikipedia, though the community had got even no request from the operator? Such negligence of a community isn't welcome in my opinion. Japanese Wikipedia has its own Bot policy and bot flag on a wiki should be approved by the community following its policy, as far as I know. If there is some changes, please let me know. --Aphaia++ 02:48, 27 October 2005 (UTC)Reply

Sorry, my fault.
Flabot asked me if he could be on some additional Wikipedias as bot, he has already on some Wikipedias the bot-status, and as far as I knew he was working ok, so I thought adding botstatus on other Wikipedias would be ok. Now, after reading the bot-guidelines (I am no Bot-expert) I understand that it should have been different.
I will set the bot-flags back and tell Flatbot to do the official request-way.
Sorry, Fantasy 18:32, 27 October 2005 (UTC)Reply
Thank you for your reply, and don't take it so serious. It was only a half month ago Ja has equipped its own policy, so such confusion could have occured. Please let the Frabot operator know he or she would be welcome on Ja and could find a help at ja:Project talk:Bot, if there is any inconvinience on those issues. Aphaia++ 22:25, 27 October 2005 (UTC)Reply
Ok, I told Frabot to do the request the right way. Thanks :-) Fantasy 19:02, 28 October 2005 (UTC)Reply



I'll leave this message on Wikipedia as well, but I wanted to make sure you got this. At Wikipedia:Semi-protection policy, a couple users and myself are attempting to gather consensus about a possible change in editing. So as not to keep the community out of the loop, we've been posting to user talk pages, which seems to have worked. If you can add your thoughts to the talk page, it would be greatly appreciated. We've gone over a few issues, ranging from perception of anti-wiki to time limits, and recycling pagemove code, so you might want to check out #Rehashing to get up to speed. Thanks in advance, Mysekurity 21:32, 13 December 2005 (UTC)Reply

De-adminship because of violation of "administration ethics"


How do you think, if an administrator violates so-called "administration ethics", but does not violate any Wikipedia rule, may administration privileges be dropped? --Jaroslavleff 16:21, 1 June 2006 (UTC)Reply

What are "administrative ethics"?
If he used an admin-function to do something bad, propbably drop
If he did something that any user can do, speak bad about someone, write something stupid, If it has nothing to do with admin, then I must be very serious to justify a drop.
But without details about what happened it is hard to tell... Fantasy 17:20, 2 June 2006 (UTC)Reply

Hurra ! Hier ist die E-Mailnotification eingeschaltet !

Super, freut mich, hab es gleich aktiviert. Gut gemacht :-) Fantasy 13:42, 26 August 2006 (UTC)Reply
Hab' gar nichts gemacht (also für die Aktivierung meine ich). Die Aktivierung auf dem en-wiki und de-wiki ist ja immer noch offen. Siehe auch das am 25.04.2006 abgeschlossene, sehr positive Meinungsbild aus der Liste der Meinungsbilder zu Software dazu. Ein Meinungsbild ist ein Meinungsbild ist ein Meinungsbild.... das bedeutet nicht, dass es umgesetzt wird :-( --Wikinaut 13:58, 26 August 2006 (UTC)Reply

It seems to be fixed alrady. Sorry for my late reply, I was on holiday :-) Fantasy 18:32, 8 October 2006 (UTC)Reply



Ciao Fantasy, ho visto il bel gruppo ML che hai costruito per OTRS-it... esiste un altro gruppo che da un po' di tempo si scambia messaggi intasando il cc: e facendo diventare ormai incredibilmente pesante la risposta e l'inoltro --> è il gruppo di discussione delle wiki in lingua minore (in italia vec, nap, fur, pms, scn etc). Secondo te è fattibile una mailing list wiki per questo gruppo? A chi devo chiedere l'autorizzazione?--Nick1915 18:07, 21 October 2006 (UTC)Reply

La cosa migliore sarebbe di descrivere cosa vuoi su Bugzilla e poi chiedere Brion Vibber se puo' mettere su la mailinglist descritta in Bugzilla. Ma devi anche aspettarti che qualche volta dura molto tempo... ha sempre tante cose da fare, Brion ;-) Fantasy 07:30, 22 October 2006 (UTC)Reply
PS: Mandami il link a Bugzilla quando l'hai fatto.

What do you think about commons:Commons:Village pump#Russian Copyright Law issues concerning edits in Wikipedia made by Russian citizens? --Jaroslavleff 19:10, 23 October 2006 (UTC)Reply

Sounds tricky, but I am not a law expert, sorry... Fantasy 04:24, 25 October 2006 (UTC)Reply



Just clarification: it was only a protection against move (and obviously you woulnd't be troubled to archive it). Sorry for bothering you however. Dir wuensche ich ein froeliches neues Jahr! --Aphaia 09:57, 27 December 2006 (UTC)Reply

I had not seen this, I set it back to your settings of move protection, I learned something new today :-)
To you as well a happy new year and thank you very much for your help! :-) Fantasy 10:13, 27 December 2006 (UTC)Reply

Seite Admin m/w


Hallo Fantasy, die obige Seite wurde von einem mir unbekannten deutschen Administrator kommentarlos gelöscht. Nach einem Disput mit stellte ich die Frage in einem Forum. Ich bekam nur nur eine veraltete Information, so habe ich mir die Mühe gemacht alle Benutzerseiten der Administratoren durchzugehen, um das Verhältnis heraus zu finden. Vorneweg mir geht es auch mehr um das Verhältnis als um die Personen. Meine Frage:

  1. Kann diese Liste revertet werden und adminintern weitergepflegt werden (es bliebe auch freigestellt, keine Angaben zu machen) und nach außen hin das Verhältnis auf der Administratorenseite sozusagen "amtlich" bestätigen? Wäre die Liste fertig geworden, hätte ich sowieso darum gebeten ...

# Kann mir der Name des betreffenden Administrator mitgeteilt werden, um überhaupt die Möglichkeit einer offenen Aussprache zu führen? Ich hoffe dies war kurz & umfassend genug. Mit freundlichen Grüssen Johannes Lorenz auf der deutschen Wikipedia

Hab auf meiner deutschen Benutzerseite geantwortet. Grüsse :-) Fantasy 18:04, 25 February 2007 (UTC)Reply

Hier bitte...


begrüßung nach langer Zeit. Du wirst Dich vielleicht an die Sache mit dem Desysoping in erinnern - nun, es gab unzählige Fortsetzungen, siehe hier - es ist eine weitere. Falls Du Zeit und Lust findest, zwischen der Renovierung etwas zuzufügen, wird es mich freuen. Thx. -jkb- 18:09, 16 March 2007 (UTC)Reply

Da der Link nicht mehr existiert, hoffe ich dass sich das Thema erledigt hat. hoffentlich positiv. Grüsse :-) Fantasy 18:36, 30 March 2007 (UTC)Reply

Well, die Mediation wurde abgelehnt und zum Nachdenken dem ArbCom zugeschoben, wo offenbar keiner richtig Lust hatte. Also, für's nächste :-) - danke allerdings auch so. -jkb- 22:32, 1 April 2007 (UTC)Reply



Hi. Can you let me know who should have access to the permissions-it OTRS queue? I think that setting access to this queue may have been overlooked for some users. If you don't know, can you let me know who I should contact? Thanks. Jkelly 19:53, 6 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

This sounds like it was while setting sitewide notices for the elections last year; the bit should have been removed straightaway. Thanks for correcting this! +sj | help with translation |+ 04:03, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Reply

Lithuanian wikipedia


Please follow this link, you can ask me to translate, or please choose a translator form our wiki with good language skills. I have put some translations there also. (Section 9.2)lt:Wikipedia aptarimas:Kandidatavimas į administratorius

If interested on short comment on what is going on. A discussion has started (was let to be started). A lot complaints that this discussion is breaking our community. It seems other administrators support access keeping for now, but their response is more like: (what is the meaning of this kinder garden) and no defence of listed accusations. Translations of Nomad are (were) somewhat misleading. Some issues on voting rules have arised. 19:34, 28 July 2007 (UTC) lt:user:zaliavosReply

Hello Fantasy, after prolonged discussion no consensus was made, and some more contributors have left project wikipedia (Tadas12 and Hugo.arg, (totaling about 25 percent of contributions overall)[1] including myself, but i wasn't a big contributor anyway) motivating by aggression and heavy moral abuse from administrators (Nomad and Dirgela). As all initiators of this voting have left wikipedia project, please feel free to remove it from request page.-- 19:16, 10 August 2007 (UTC) lt:user:zaliavosReply

Sorry to read this, and thanks for letting us know. Fantasy 09:01, 11 August 2007 (UTC)Reply

Steward confirmation


Thanks for letting us know (via the edit summary) what you are thinking. I have noted your removal (for now?) and that you're currently still deciding whether to seek reconfirmation or not in the summary at Stewards/confirm. Best wishes. ++Lar: t/c 13:23, 15 November 2007 (UTC)Reply

Vielen Dank fuer deinen allen Diesnt als Steward und viel Glueck! Mit herzlichen Gruessen :) --Aphaia 13:30, 15 November 2007 (UTC)Reply

Ciao Fantasy! Spero che ci ripensi! Hai fatto un ottimo lavoro su tutti i progetti WM... non ultimo quello fatto qui su meta! Grazie!!! (PS abbiamo bisogno di te!!!!!!!!!)--Nick1915 - all you want 20:08, 15 November 2007 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for all the nice words, but I think it is time for me to move on (see my userpage). I will not leave, but I will not come back as intensive as in the past.
Grazie, Danke, Thanks to everyone, It was a great time together :-) Fantasy 20:20, 15 November 2007 (UTC)Reply
...will auch sagen Schade; Du warst mir einmal vor längerer Zeit eine sehr große Hilfe, die unbürokratisch und umgehend kam; gäbe es hier mehr Leute von Deiner Sorte, wäre die Welt besser. Also: noch einmal Danke und viel Spaß für Dich!!! -jkb- 20:53, 15 November 2007 (UTC)Reply

Sorry, how can I contact OTRS in order to complain about Wikipedia's administrators unfair and bad behaviour?
