Hello. I am trying to start a Dutch Wikiversity, I'm not sure if you speak Dutch, but if you do would you be willing to help? Thanks. (Red4tribe 04:31, 23 April 2008 (UTC))Reply

Dutch is my mother tongue yes. I'm not sure about your request. I am pretty busy with the nl.wiktionary and have turned my back on the nl.wiki. What exactly is the idea?

Sorry (but not surprised at all) to hear that about Xhosa potential users. I do not exactly know the best place to apply for your admin privileges to be revoked but I guess that if you ask any steward here, they can do it or at least forward you to the relevant place. Thanks for everything. I personally value and appreciate much your work. Good luck with everything. Best regards. --0 º 18:05, 30 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Translator, We need you!


Dear Jcwf,

You have helped us in previous years with translations and for that we are most grateful. Now we turn towards the 2011/12 fundraiser. It may seem forever away, but work has already begun getting everything ready to go. This year we want to have landing pages covering as many countries in as many languages as possible.

Right now, we want to figure out who is interested in translating for the fundraiser. This year we're hoping to have more of a solidified "core" group of translators that we can count on to have work done by a few key dates, but we'd also welcome help from people who are willing to just help out when they can.

If you would be interested please take a look at this little sign-up survey and fill it out http://survey.wikimedia.org/index.php?sid=13638&newtest=Y&lang=en. With that we can start building a list of people and filling any gaps in the languages we serve.

Many Thanks

Hi Jcwf. Please see my reply on Wikimedia Forum#Phoney users?. Thanks for reporting the spambots to us! En het mag ook in het Nederlands hoor, van mij. ;) Trijnsteltalk 14:57, 6 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

Re: Xhosa


Thanks for your reply. I understand your point of view, in fact I'm not going to insist much more in looking for someone to translate the logo. However, I'm not involved in proposals for closure and I won't comment on the matter; I don't know when you last proposed it but you may want to check the new closure policy. --Nemo 22:53, 4 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Hola, gràcies a la teva firma donant suport a la nostra associació. El passat dia 5 de juny Amical Wikimedia (Associació Amical Viquipèdia) va ser reconeguda pel Consell d'Administració de la Fundació Wikimedia com a Organització Temàtica. Pots veure el comunicat de l'associació en català aquí o el comunicat de la WMF en anglès aquí. Per a la nostra associació és una fita molt important, portàvem 5 anys demanant ésser un organisme oficial. Nosaltres continuarem la nostra tasca de promoció al carrer i a les institucions de la Viquipèdia i els seus projectes germans arreu dels territoris de parla catalana.

Moltes gràcies, Thank you --Davidpar (talk) 11:57, 15 July 2013 (UTC)Reply

Superprotect status


Dear Jcwf, 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.

Hi there,

I noticed that you were an English speaking administrator at af.wiki and was wondering if you could assist me there. There was a user who put some vandalism on my talk page and I was hoping that you could delete the page. I'd greatly appreciate your help. Best regards, Mike VTalk 00:49, 23 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

Un grazie e un libro sulla conoscenza libera per te

Wikimedia Italia

Gentile Jcwf,

oggi ti scrivo a nome dell'associazione Wikimedia Italia per ringraziarti del tempo che hai dedicato ai progetti Wikimedia.

Come piccolo omaggio avremmo piacere di spedirti una copia (tutta in carta riciclata) del libro di Carlo Piana, Open source, software libero e altre libertà. Fornisci un recapito per ricevere una copia del libro.

Pochi giorni fa il mondo ha festeggiato la giornata dell'amore per il software libero, ma ogni giorno è buono per ricordare le garanzie delle licenze libere e le centinaia di migliaia di persone che si sono unite per costruire questo bene comune della conoscenza. Speriamo che questo libro ti sia utile per apprezzare quanto hai fatto e per trasmettere la passione della conoscenza libera a una persona a te vicina.

Se desideri una copia ma non puoi fornirci un indirizzo a cui spedirla, contatta la segreteria Wikimedia Italia e troviamo una soluzione insieme.

Grazie ancora e a presto,

Lorenzo Losa (msg) 14:50, 20 February 2020 (UTC)Reply
