Edits to Wikibooks/ar

Hello, please note that edits made by User:دیاکۆ to Wikibooks/ar on Meta are vandalism. The language used is not Arabic. All edits were made on February 12th. Haytham Abulela talk 04:17, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

I have mass-reverted their edits. Thanks for your message. —Sgd. Hasley 14:40, 13 February 2020 (UTC)


Early congrats to your successful RFA, looking forward to serve alongside you in meta. Thanks for volunteering :) --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 19:29, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

You are welcome  . It will be a pleasure! Thanks for your work! —Sgd. Hasley 20:09, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!

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

Congratulations, Hasley! 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) 12:18, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Wikimedia Ukraine

Hello. I enlarged and updated the page Wikimedia Ukraine, could you please mark it for translation? --TohaomgTohaomg (talk) 12:10, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Done. Regards. —Sgd. Hasley 12:27, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

You’ve got mail!

Please check your inbox as soon as possible! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gale5050 (talk)

IP addresses change periodically. Unregistered users shouldn't have user pages. Also GlobalUserPage extension doesn't work. Kind regards. —Sgd. Hasley 17:19, 21 March 2020 (UTC)


Hi, can you check the translations of this user. They blocked at es for vandalism, mediawiki for false translations. Hope for an es speaker to look into this. Thanks much.Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:17, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Hi, my apologies for the delay. Deleted, most of them are (unintelligible) machine translations. I'll warn him about that. Thanks for letting me know. —Sgd. Hasley 18:17, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Apologies for not following this thread that I started. Appreciate the help :)Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:21, 19 April 2020 (UTC)


Hey. Can you translate Translations:Abuse filter maintainer/7/es in full? An IP did not update the translation but removed the fuzzy tags. Thanks :) Minorax (talk) 12:09, 4 April 2020 (UTC)

Done  . —Sgd. Hasley 12:33, 4 April 2020 (UTC)


Hey. Thanks for cleaning up after me :) Minorax (talk) 16:04, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Translation not appearing

Hi Hasley,

Thanks for marking Template:Navigation header/Working and convening remotely for translation. I encountered an issue with it though, which is that the translation I did (to German) isn't appearing. Do you know what's happening here? DraconicDark (talk) 22:42, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Hi DraconicDark. That's weird. Remarking the template for translation has fixed it. Sorry for late reply, my country has a terrible Internet connection. —Sgd. Hasley 23:10, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

edit hide was purposeful

I purposefully hid the edit, as it was the continual target, so unhiding it is not ideal.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:10, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

Not sure why content was unhidden. Please note my intention was suppress their username. My apologies. —Sgd. Hasley 18:30, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

Hello, you blanked the page Global sysops/Requests but you did not deleted b:en:Sorry, this page was recently deleted (within the last 24 hours). The deletion, protection, and move log for the page are provided below for reference.. --ValeJappo (talk) 17:37, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Please see your talk page. —Sgd. Hasley 17:46, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
Strange: I have a tool, and it says that it is a global steward wiki--ValeJappo (talk) 17:50, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
P. S. The tool is User:Hoo_man/active_sysops.js --ValeJappo (talk) 17:55, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
I have GS access on that project, but shouldn't use my permissions there per global policy and local proposal. —Sgd. Hasley 18:07, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. So, I should write at gs only when the wiki has 0, 1 or 2 active admins, right?--ValeJappo (talk) 18:21, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
File a request only when there are no active admins. See SRM: “This page is for Wikimedia wikis having no active administrators. […] If the wiki does have active administrators, file the request with one of them”. —Sgd. Hasley 19:55, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
For revision deletes should I use Steward_requests/Miscellaneous or Global sysops/Requests?--ValeJappo (talk) 07:18, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
Both of them. Use GSR for uncontroversial requests (like blatant vandalism/attacks) and SRM for formal requests. —Sgd. Hasley 11:55, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

RFC talk page

I was about to move the comment at Talk:Requests for comment/Reforming the RFC process to the RFC itself, but you were quicker in deleting the page. Was that an LTA or so? --MF-W 11:01, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Sure. They have exactly the same pattern as Fuerdai vandal. They love to talk about LTAs and have community discussion using IP addresses. Please feel free to revert my deletion if you disagree with it. Sgd. —Hasley 11:31, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for the info. I didn't know this particular person yet. --MF-W 12:02, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Your signature

Out of curiosity, what does "Sgd." in your signature mean?--Hamish 05:20, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi. Sgd. is the abbreviation of signed. Sgd. —Hasley 14:40, 3 July 2020 (UTC)


Me puedes decir en qué te basas para decir que copio y pego, dime donde están las equivocaciones, pon casos, no puedes llegar y decir algo sin demostrar en qué te basas. Mis ediciones salen directamente de mí, tengo la ayuda de google e inlingua, pero todo lo suelo repasar bastante, otra cosa es que algunos de los escritores usen frases hechas, cultismos, etc. Le dedico a esto unas 6 horas diarias, pero estoy viendo que solo os dedicais a poner trabas a la gente, no os debo nada y hay otros lugares que me escriben para que les haga traducciones. Estoy cansado. Tu me dices que no se traducir y Amire80 me felicita. Poneros de acuerdo y seguir así que os van a llover los voluntarios. le saluda atentamente Bartolocarrasco

Discouraging translations on a page

Hola Hasley. :) I was wondering whether there is a way to discourage translators and translations admins to work on a specific page. I have searched, and I haven't found it. I expect quite some change coming to the very outdated Wikimedia Foundation but I don't think it is useful to bother translators until the page is stable. Qgil-WMF (talk) 12:51, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

Hola Qgil :). Translation admins can discourage them by hiding a translatable page from the interface, using Special:PageTranslation. This is mostly recommended for pages that are important for a certain period of time and historical content (e.g. Abuse filter editors and Affiliate-selected Board seats/2016). IMO, it is preferable to use a personalized message similar to {{draft}} or {{news draft}} instead. Regards. Sgd. —Hasley 13:31, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

Interwiki map

Hola Hasley, en esta edición de la página Interwiki map has agregado por error dos caracteres Unicode que invalidan el enlace de Luxo. Dichos caracteres no son visibles, pero para que aparezcan puedes activar en el editor (pulsando el botón  ) el resaltador de sintaxis CodeMirror, el cual los representa como un punto rojo (). Tales caracteres hacen que los enlaces [[luxo:$1]], se conviertan en /%u200B$1, cuando sin embargo deberían corresponder a$1. Simplemente hay que borrar dichos caracteres, antes y después del enlace, para hacer que vuelvan a funcionar normalmente. Saludos. -- Leoncastro (talk) 19:03, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

Hola Leoncastro. En una edición posterior retiré varios caracteres de espacio de ancho cero que inserté accidentalmente, pero pasé por alto aquel que comentas. Si es necesario algo más, házmelo saber. Gracias por tu mensaje. Sgd. —Hasley 21:24, 21 July 2020 (UTC)


因为中国目前的互联网政策‘禁止人们访问国际互联网’。在有网络墙的存在下,在中国 ,人们不得不使用代理工具访问维基和国际互联网。在这恶劣的环境下,请求维基管理员们给予中国人全球IP封禁豁免权限,以方便中国用户使用。谢谢理解。请讨论之。 Abouc%w7 (talk) 15:13, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Abouc%w7, sorry for writing in English. Please file a request for a global IP block exemption at SRIPBE. Sgd. —Hasley 21:19, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Data retention guidelines/ur

Hi Hasley, I manually reverted this edit because it seems to have added Thai to the Urdu translation of the page, but looking at the corresponding edit a lot more seems to have been removed. Is there anyway the text could (or should) be restored? Sorry for any inconvenience I might have caused, I'm not too familiar with the translate extension. – Aranya (talk) 16:09, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

Aranya, my apologies for the delayed response. That text was removed at Special:Diff/19852964, but due to phab:T255334 translations were not updated. Currently re-marking the pages after a dummy edit is necessary to update all translation pages. Kind regards. Sgd. —Hasley 11:09, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
Oh I see now - thanks for your help. – Aranya (talk) 14:21, 31 July 2020 (UTC)


Just saw the Goethe quote on your user page. Being German, just want to tell you that in the phrase, "Wer sollte bei dem traurigen Ansehn ..." you wrote "An sehn", but it should be only one word, "Ansehen" (modern German would be "Aussehen", "the look" (of the tree). It is a compound noun, made of the verb "sehen", "to see" and the preposition "an", "by" or "to". --Rsk6400 (talk) 13:23, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

I have changed it, thanks for the catch! Sgd. —Hasley 13:35, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, while I corrected one mistake, I made another: The forms "Ansehn" and "Ansehen" are both correct, but Goethe has "Ansehn", and since he was a poet, that may be important for the rhythm. The quote is from Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre, chapter 12. --Rsk6400 (talk) 14:22, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

A request

Please, block globally this IP [1] for one day. He vandalized on, also here, soon he'll be vandalizing on other projects. Kubura (talk) 03:17, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Has stopped, but let me know if they come back. Sgd. —Hasley 15:51, 2 September 2020 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed that you've reverted my request, I was trying to request checking articles connected to this wikidata and was advised to to put my request thereHitomiAkane (talk) 13:29, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi HitomiAkane. Most large projects (like jawiki, kowiki and zhwiki) are opted-out of global sysops (see Special:WikiSets/7). Deletions on those wikis are handled by local administrators. Best, Sgd. —Hasley 15:44, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
