Is there some reason I'm not aware of that this page belongs at Meta rather than on English Wikipedia? In general, we don't copy their stuff unless it has relevance and importance for many wikis. Thanks for your attention. — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 16:26, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
- I made a translation of this text in Russian, and I have been advised by many Russian wikipedia users (some of them being meta sysops) to move it here from Russian wikipedia. I think it's relevant not only to English wikipedia, there are lame edit wars in almost all Wikimedia project, and this essay gives a good way to say: "don't do anything stupid just to prove a point". In other words, if a Do not disrupt projects to make a point is relevant for meta, then this essay is relevant too, because essentially they state the same thing, first being serious, second being humorous. Its wording is Wikipedia-specific right now, but that can be changed. --Grebenkov 19:44, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Fundraising translation feedbackEdit
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 Russian 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.
JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)Edit
Hi - according to our records you received a free account for JSTOR through The Wikipedia Library. Because we’ve used up all of our allocated accounts, and it’s been some time since they were distributed, we want to redistribute any accounts that aren’t being used to users on our waitlist.
If you’re still using, or plan to use, your JSTOR access, no problem! Simply head over to the Library Card platform, log in, and request a renewal of your account. You should be able to do this from your user page, or the JSTOR signup page. If you can’t find the renewal button, or have any other issues or questions about this, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. We’ll begin redistributing inactive accounts in September; if you request renewal after then we will only be able to reactivate your account if we have spots remaining. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:32, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
