the madness pre-2015

Global CSS/JS migrationEdit

Hello Atcovi. You have a global.js page which contains your global scripts for all wikis. Since August 19th 2014, your global.js and global.css pages are loaded automatically on all wikis (see announcement). Since you already load them yourself on some wikis, you may experience script errors or issues like tools being added twice. I can fix that for you by merging your local scripts and styles into your global pages, and deleting the local pages with synchbot. Do you want me to do that? —Pathoschild 03:03, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

@User:Pathoschild - Yes please. Thanks. --Atcovi (talk) 23:28, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
Done! You can see the full log on your archive page. —Pathoschild 14:13, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Aiight, thanks. --Atcovi (talk) 21:46, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't even read them so that's why it's useless to me. --Atcovi (talk) 14:15, 14 March 2015 (UTC)


You asked me to teach tamil, I am ready. And There are no any projects in our wiki to teach tamil. What do you want to learn from me? pls tell--Shriheeran (talk) 00:33, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Amazing Shriheeran!, I've always wanted to learn my native language (but couldn't due to speaking problems). I'm confused when it comes to the alphabets. There is a project in en.wikiversity where there is a 1/4 finished Tamil-learning project which you can pick up and start off of. It'd be a definite help to learn Tamil as I would like to speak to my family in Tamil. It'd be a dream come true for this reality to come alive. Thanks. --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 00:37, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
My apologies if you want to work at ta.wikipedia only, I was talking about a project in en.wikiversity (clarifying) --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 00:39, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
That's goog and happy new year to you. Where are you living now. In Sri Lanka or abroad--Shriheeran (talk) 00:40, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for your kindness. I live in the US, but I was born in Sri Lanka and traveled to Germany, then the US. Would you like the link to the en.wikiversity project? --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 00:44, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, I saw it. Personally I'd like for the user to do it himself, but hey it's alright! Thank you and I wish the same for you :) Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 10:58, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Unsuccessful global renamer requestEdit

Hi Atcovi,

I've closed your request for global renamer as unsuccessful. Sorry, but there was not the level of support required by policy to promote. Regards, – Ajraddatz (talk) 07:59, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

Global sysopEdit

Hello, congrats on your successful request. I have granted the global sysop flag to your account. Please re-read gs, subscribe to the mailing list, and then get to work keeping the small wikis clean :-)

If you have any questions, please let me know. – Ajraddatz (talk) 03:14, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

@Atcovi: I've just send you an email. Please take a look at it and reply. Trijnsteltalk 12:07, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

re: StatementEdit

Hi Atcovi. Thank you for all you've done and good luck with whatever you plan to do. :-) Trijnsteltalk 12:35, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Do you make money here?Edit

Do Wikipedia pays you for your work here? Hamzah Mq. (talk) 22:12, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

@Hamzah Mq.: No. If I was making money based off my contributions to the WMF, I would've made a clear disclosure on my userpage that I was being payed per WP:Paid-contribution disclosure. As my userpage says, "I feel like editing Wikimedia is a time well spent.", this sentence implies that I edit the Wikimedia Foundation solely due to a huge interest in it and not for money. Thanks. —Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 00:57, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

About Special:diff/20676786Edit

GS: fewer than three administrators have made a logged action within the past two months. pswiki just has one active sysop, so I can not understand why not within the scope of GS activity wiki. (`・ω・´) (talk) 14:09, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

"By default, global sysops may use this global user group's permissions on wikis" - it's up to our interpretation, but if there already is an active sysop on the wiki, we tend to let the local sysop deal with spam/vandalism pages unless in the case of an emergency (a spammer creating pages by the minute, for example). But in regards to the page you've linked, I've deleted it as the one active sysop hasn't done so in the last few days although he is actively editing. Thank you. —Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 14:35, 19 November 2020 (UTC)


For the mop, happy mopping :)--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:00, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Haha thank you CM! :) —Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:37, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!Edit

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | 한국어 | Nederlands | português | русский | العربية | edit

Congratulations, Atcovi! You now have the rights of an administrator on Meta-Wiki. Please take a moment to read the Meta:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, and Meta:Requests for deletion, but also Talk:Spam blacklist and Talk:Interwiki map), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-adminconnect. You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading although it doesn't always completely apply here at Meta. Please also check or add your entry to Meta:Administrators#List of administrators and the Template:List of administrators. You're also allowed to subscribe the metawiki admins private mailing list. Again, congratulations and welcome to the team. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:00, 9 December 2020 (UTC)


Hello, Atcovi. I saw this edit of yours at the English Wikiquote, so I was thinking you might be interested about these discussions: [1] [2] --Koalajove (talk) 20:48, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Wikimedia Foundation Community Board seats: Call for feedback meetingEdit

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. As a matter of fact, there had only been one member who served on the Board, from South Asia, in more than fifteen years of history.

In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees? In this regard, it would be good to have a community discussion to discuss the proposed ideas and share our thoughts, give feedback and contribute to the process. To discuss this, you are invited to a community meeting that is being organized on March 12 from 8 pm to 10 pm, and the meeting link to join is You can add this meeting to your Google Calendar by clicking here. Please ping me if you have any questions. Thank you. --User:KCVelaga (WMF), 10:30, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
