Willy on Wheels at Emilian wikipedia (recently created)Edit

Hi Jon Harald, could you please be so kind to block Willy on Wheels at Emilian wikipedia (recently created)? URL: It has alrady created some user pages like... Clamengh on Wheels, which are vandalism. Many thanks, --clamengh 18:39, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

Fixed.   Jon Harald Søby 12:29, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Thank you very much for block and deletes on!! --Ottaviano 17:07, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Yes, thank. We were wondering....are you the only sysop on eml wikipedia? Or must we elect someone among us? Thanks eml:User:Piffy 19:44, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

--Yaroslav Zolotaryov 07:47, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi! You're now a bureaucrat there; sorry for the delay. Jon Harald Søby 11:18, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
Thank you. --Yaroslav Zolotaryov 11:25, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

MediaWiki namespaceEdit

Hi, a question - what do you do to the MediaWiki namespace to change sysop as it appears on special:listusers to another name?? -- 12:40, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

It's in MediaWiki:Group-sysop. Jon Harald Søby 17:29, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Problem with MediaWiki on Wikimedia sitesEdit

Hi, there's a problem with the Mediawiki 1.9 installation, it causes this strange effect:
Jon Harald Søby/Archive/8

From Meta

forcing everything to be squashed up, as you can see with the templates in the affected image.

Can you ask a developer to find out what the problem is?? --WiganRunnerEu 14:08, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

This problem never happened in mediawiki 1.8 or any previous version; developer help needed! --WiganRunnerEu 14:10, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
I don't see anything wrong there, except the expanded space between the heading and its bottom-line; a CSS change, in other words. Jon Harald Søby 17:34, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Kinyarwanda WiktionaryEdit

Hi, I met with the Rwandan government ICT director two days ago in Kigali, to determine what kind of work I could do for them. One of the projects is to create a web-based glossary of translations between Kinyarwanda (Rwandan in English, code rw), English, and French. These are the 3 national languages. (E.g. signs appear in all 3, the banknotes have all 3, and so forth.)

I (of course) decided that the way to do this was with the rw wikt.

At present it has about 100 entries, a few users, none active. And some offensive IP-sourced junk entries.

I'd like to fix it; there will be a number of people that will be working on it; there is no on-line dictionary for Kinyarwanda. (There is at least one with a very strict copyright, and very dubious entries ;-).

How would I go about getting a sysop flag so I can clean out the (small amount of) junk and so on? As usual of course, one can do most anything as a user, but I really have to get rid of the offensive stuff before the Rwandan goverment looks at it! (oh, please answer on rw:wikt or en:wikt?)

Marshallese WikipediaEdit

Hi Jon Harald. I recently noticed the Marshallese Wikipedia, and, while searching to see if the place has any admins, I noticed your username. The site seems to be suffering some from some vandalism, eg this. Whether you sysop yourself to go delete some pages or take another course of action is up to you, of course; I just wanted to bring it to your attention. (Coincedentally, Naconkantari is requesting sysop access for similar reasons on the Marshallese wiktionary, although they seem to have been hit by different vandals.) If you need to contact me, see my talk page on enwiki. Picaroon9288 01:00, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Requests for permissionsEdit

Jon -- would you be so good as to indicate on Requests for permissions when you have completed a request? A note as simple as ":{{done}} ~~~~" would be quite enough. This would make it much easier on other stewards when cleaning up the page and archiving completed requests. Kind regards — Dan | talk 20:59, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

I usually do, but I know I have forgotten it some times. (Also, when I get requests on IRC, I don't always check RfP for entries about the subject.) Jon Harald Søby 12:19, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Hiding revisionsEdit

Hi, could you as a Steward hide the 112 deleted revisions of the articles on the article w:eo:Listo de denaskaj esperantistoj. As you can read on its talk page, the page used to contain information that probably breaks privacy laws of a number of countries. The fact that administrators can still see the content might still break these privacy laws. So hiding the deleted revisions will ensure that no legal problems can arise. Dankon. Marcos 21:50, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but oversight is only enabled on the English Wikipedia (it doesn't work anywhere else, even though you have the rights). You should try and ask Brion Vibber about it. Jon Harald Søby 14:06, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

MediaWiki 1.8 problemEdit

I've got MediaWiki 1.8 installed and running on my Apache server, what settings do I need to change to allow ImageMagick to render SVG output to PNG?? --WiganRunnerEu 11:02, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

I have no idea, sorry. Jon Harald Søby 11:44, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

About Wikimania2007 TranslationEdit

I think you can help us to translate main page and Team bulletin first.The sidebar...You can see my user subpage in Wikimania2007 site.--Alex S.H. Lin 22:35, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

You're right. Also, the system you've set up there seems sufficient, so admin status won't be needed, as far as I can see.   Jon Harald Søby 20:52, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Russian Copyright Law issuesEdit

What do you think about commons:Commons:Village pump#Russian Copyright Law issues concerning edits in Wikipedia made by Russian citizens? --Jaroslavleff 19:04, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Aromanian wikiEdit

Greetings Jon Harald Søby!

User Eeamoscopolecrushuva (Real name:Prof. dr. Dumitrachi T. Fundu) wishes to change the Aromanian interwiki name from Armâneashti into Armãneashce (the proper name), but he does not know how to change it. Can you give him some useful advice? Thanks. --Jose77 03:43, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi! I'll ask someone at #wikimedia-tech if they can do that later. Jon Harald Søby 14:49, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the help! --Jose77 08:42, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

simple wikiEdit

It seems to me that you've forgotten to remove emergency sysop rights from my account. Can you unset admin flag from my account? --M/ 10:12, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi JHS. It's done, M7 caught me in chat, I removed his sysop flag on Bye. --Paginazero - Ø 22:31, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Okay, great. I remember clearly removing them yesterday, but something must have gone wrong (perhaps my connection was lost; I was just finishing for the night). Thanks for fixing it, Paginazero. Jon Harald Søby 22:33, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

You can't hide forever!Edit

Your censorship and revisionist approach to history is reminscent of the fascists who killed so many people on this planet's surface.

At first I thought your 'Stewardship' meant that you had some sort of cred. But I realise now you are more likely intern-grade-18-year-old sort of thing. I have an Honours degree in astrophysics and unfortunately, my lack of interest in Pokêmon will make our future conversations stilted.

Have fun. Restore my editing Rights.

Request for a bot flagEdit

I requested for a bot flag, still no help. Would you help me please, to give me a bot status.
I request that bpy:User:Usinghabot get a bot flag on the Bishnupriya Manipuri Wikipedia:
