Stewards page rewrittenEdit

Dear Kaganer. Please see my request at here. Trijnsteltalk 16:04, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Bot inactivity noticeEdit

Hello Kaganer,

The Meta-Wiki community has approved a new bot inactivity policy which states that bots that are inactive for a continued period of 14 months should be subject to review. A bot you operate, TheStoneBot (talk · contribs) meets the inactivity criteria. In accordance with the bot inactivity policy, if you wish to retain the bot flag for the named account, please answer to this message no later than 6 April 2019 on Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. After that date if the bureaucrats have not received any reply, the bot flag for the named account will be removed.

To reflag a bot, please create a new request at Meta:Requests for bot status.

Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:39, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Aff Com electionEdit

Fyi, I recovered and minor edited. If translation source in en needs to be updated, kindly please update and blank the text, but not in /ja file in this case. (talk) 00:41, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Sorry to consult you again, and with my high respect toward your sense of responsibility as always. With no evil intention on my side: Your comment in above mentioned string is appreciated, but I am afraid the translation source does not look updated to me per this version id. Excuse me if I left an impression overstepping, is it ok I sit and wait till server will propagate the update you commented in that string? time-lug? (Or the page is a mirror or something I don’t know.)
My mixup, awfully sorry, en text surely has been updated for text #211, hope you will please ignore my claim. --Omotecho (talk) 06:53, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Only trying to “keep a face” of a respected forerunner as you are, too Japanese sentiment. The only thing I wish to prevent is other editors working on ja translation jump on to a false conclusion you made a mistake and input translation, waste your time again to roll back, as I did. Cheers, —Omotecho (talk) 03:28, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Case closed. Totally my misunderstanding of the situation. Thank you for your patience and kindness toward my rudeness. —Omotecho (talk) 06:53, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

NP ;) Don't worry! --Kaganer (talk) 16:10, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

The Affiliate-selected Board seats process welcomes your supportEdit

Hello. You are receiving this message because you are active in the field of translations <3 The movement needs you! The Nominations phase has started for the ongoing selection process of two Board members, and the timeline is quite tight.

A Translation Central is available to help translators figure out what's been covered and what's left to do. Over the course of the next few weeks, your attention on candidates' profiles is particularly welcome.

While there are four languages that are especially relevant for multiple affiliates (namely Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish), you can also add others. If you can't help: please see if you know anyone in your circle who could, and spread the word :) Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 13:20, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for your help on the ASBS pages, and teaching me about the LM template, I need to learn to use that. I'm seeing Template:ASBS nomination show up among the candidates on the Nomination page, and would like to avoid that if possible, but can't remember how that is done. Something something noinclude, or includeonly...? Also, if you happen to stumble upon new nominations before I do!, feel free to mark them for translations - I hadn't done this in a while and I learn by looking at solid examples :) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:49, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
@Elitre (WMF): Template was fixed, markup was updated. --Kaganer (talk) 18:43, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

The Research team could use your helpEdit

Hello. You are receiving this message because of your recent activity in the Translations namespace.

The Wikimedia Research team is developing a new algorithm that automatically recommends sections for editors to add to articles. Translations have already occurred for some of the few languages that we are testing in, except for Spanish and Russian. If you have some time in the next few days, please consider translating the short message (only 6 items) we aim to send out soon, in one or both of these languages. (And if you feel like you want to support your tester peers even more, you can do so by taking care of the related instructions page.)

Thank you! Jonathan Morgan & Diego Saez-Trumper, Wikimedia Foundation Research - 18:14, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

LPP/de and LPP/ru need updateEdit

As changes applied for 12 days. -- 02:15, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Language proposal policyEdit

Thank you for cleaning up the translation markup for LPP. I greatly appreciate it! StevenJ81 (talk) 14:16, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

@StevenJ81: This is nice to know ;) ---Kaganer (talk) 14:48, 26 June 2019 (UTC)


Добрый день, я Вам направила письмо по форме "Написать письмо участнику" по поводу удаления страницы "Басюк Виктор Стефанович". Так как было указано, что участник может редко просматривать почту, советуют направлять уведомление на страницу обсуждения участника, о том, что сообщение направлено, что я и делаю) Очень жду Вашего ответа, спасибо! --Regotuntatyana (talk) 06:05, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Ответил. --Kaganer (talk) 13:11, 27 June 2019 (UTC)


Добрый день! Мой IP-адрес — на Викискладе заблокирован, идентификатор блокировки — #363794. Как можно снять блокировку? --Создательница (talk) 04:23, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

В Вашем случае это маловероятно. Вы же уже были забанены и в русской Википедии как w:ru:User:Alexandronikos как раз за обход блокировки. Разберитесь, за что Вас заблокировали на викискладе, и напишите об этом на своей странице обсуждения вместе с заявкой на разблокировку (с помощью шаблона {{unblock|обоснование разблокировки в свободной форме ~~~~}}). А создавать новые учетные записи не советую.--Kaganer (talk) 10:35, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Спасибо за ответ! Дело в том, что свою страницу обсуждения я не могу редактировать, соотвеьственно и оставить запрос не могу...--Создательница (talk) 07:28, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Напишите здесь в свободной форме. Я дам ссылку админу, который вас заблокировал. --Kaganer (talk) 11:29, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Уважаемый администратор! Прошу Вас разблокировать учётную запись Alexandronikos, так как под этой записью я работаю в Википедии и синхронно перехожу работать на Викисклад, где не могу загрузить собственные работы, пришлось создать другую учетную запись Создательница, однако и её мне нельзя использовать, так как при переходе в Википедию она блокируется. В общем порочный круг. Прошу разблокировать мою учетную запись, чтобы у меня была возможность работать и в ВП и на Викискалде под одной записью. Заранеее благодарю! Обязуюсь выполнять все Правила Проекта Викисклад. С уважением, --Создательница (talk) 14:23, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

По-моему, этого недостаточно. Вы понимаете, за что вас заблокировали на Викискладе? напишите это в явном виде, пожалуйста. "Как я сейчас понимаю, я был(а) заблокирован(а) на Викискладе за ..." И далее в явном виде со ссылкой на правило, которое было изучено и с подтверждением этого. --Kaganer (talk) 15:56, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Добрый день! Насколько я понимаю, моя блокировка связана с большим количеством загруженных несвободных изображений, может я ошибаюсь, другого предположения у меня нет, как нет и объяснения причин блокировки на моей странице обсуждения со стороны администратора, её наложившего. Мною изучено Правило Commons:Лицензирование и впредь я буду загружать только собственные произведения. Вы можете изучить вклад Создательницы, чтобы убедиться, что нарушений с моей стороны нет. С уважением, --Создательница (talk) 05:13, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Please translate the Editing newsletterEdit

Would you please translate VisualEditor/Newsletter/2019/July into your favorite language for me? I'd really appreciate it. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 17:30, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Invitations to translateEdit

Hello, Kaganer,

Community Insights/Translation/2019/1-Invitation and the other pages listed at Community Insights/Translation#Requests for translations are ready to be translated. There is little more information about this group of invitations on the mailing list. Also, please keep an eye on that page: more pages will be ready for you soon!

Thank you for your interest in helping translate these messages. I really do appreciate it. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:57, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

@Whatamidoing (WMF):   Done. --Kaganer (talk) 19:21, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! There will be more on the way, but I'm hoping to make them re-use some of the same sentences, by way of using translation memory to our advantage. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:15, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Could you please translate Community Insights/Translation/2019/1-Invitation to program coordinators into Russian for me? Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:43, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
@Whatamidoing (WMF):   Done again. --Kaganer (talk) 20:57, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
 Thank you very much! Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:33, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
  Thank you for your help with Community Insights/Translation#Requests for translations. It's really helpful for people to get this information in their language. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 17:14, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your helpEdit

Hi there, translator! Here's a little token of appreciation for a recent effort you contributed to. Surprised? Well, the best is yet to come.

  • We'd love to send you this badge as an actual sticker. If you want, you can use this Google Form to communicate your address so we can ship it to you. Note that we will close the form on October 13, 2019, and all data will be removed shortly afterwards. Details about this external site are provided at the top of the form.
  • We also have this badge waiting for you on Wikimedia Space. You can use the form linked above to let us know what your username is on this brand new hub, so that you can get the award there as well. If you don't have an account yet, just go ahead and enjoy joining via Wikimedia login in just a few clicks. (And in case you hadn't heard yet, you can join the community of translators there as well).

Again, thanks for everything you are doing to make this movement a better (and multilingual!) place: please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions, and I hope to hear from you soon. --Elitre (WMF), 13:03, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

Community Wishlist Survey 2020 needs translationsEdit


I'm contacting you because you've already translated some messages for the Community Wishlist Survey. We need more translations for the 2020 edition, to create a survey that would serve as many users as we know.

The list below shows our needs by order of importance (most important first):

  1. The invitation sent to communities. It summarizes the process. We plan to distribute it soon on this year target wikis. The more translations we have, the better!
  2. The form for non-English speakers. Anyone should be able to add their wish, no matter which language they speak. Translating this short form is very important to encourage diversity and equity.
  3. The survey itself, where the entire process is described.
  4. The preload form, that provides more context on existing wishes.

Some languages are already covered (maybe by you), but some messages have been updated, and there is always some room for reviewing and polishing messages.

Thank you in advance for your help! This survey can't be successful without your assistance. :)

Any chance to push for translation? GLAM/NewsletterEdit

Hi, could please advise me where I can request to push GLAM/Newsletter internationalization? I am enjoying reading that page in en, and wish people would have chance reading issues in their languages. I will translate into ja of course. Kind regards, --Omotecho (talk) 05:31, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

Notice of review of adminshipEdit

Hello Kaganer. In accordance with Meta:Administrators/Removal and because you have made fewer than ten logged administrator actions over the past six months, your adminship is under review at Meta:Administrators/Removal/April 2020. If you would like to retain your adminship, please sign there before April 09, 2020. Kind regards, MF-W 22:33, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Просьба о разблокировкеEdit

Здравствуйте, пишу тут и вам, потому что все возможности для разблокировки на википедии у меня заблокировали, новых учётных записей не создавал, как был под именем “trololoval”, так и остался, а заблокировали за вандализм - когда я добавил всего лишь 1 правку в статье обезьяны, в следующий раз меня заблокировали, когда я заметил блокировку и подал заявку на разблокировку, тут меня тот же самый администратор “Q-bit array”, с той же самой причиной заблокировал, убрав все возможности для разблокировки. Насколько я понимаю, то моя разблокировка возможна, но была совершена ошибка, т.к. обход блокировки, регистрируя новые учётные записи я не совершал, а заблокировали за вандализм, хотя я вандализма не вижу, я предполагал добрые намерения немного дополнив статью, а больше я собственно ничего и не сделал, кроме как подал заявку на разблокировку и вообще потерял все возможности для неё. Trololoval (talk) 05:41, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

Inactive bot accountEdit

Hi. At mw:Project:Requests/User rights/Removal of inactive bot rights (2) there is a proposal to remove the bot rights of inactive bots. Since you appear to be the operator of one of the bots in question, I wanted to draw your attention to the discussion. Please let us know if the rights are still needed (or if they aren't). Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 02:46, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Notice of review of adminshipEdit

Hello Kaganer. In accordance with Meta:Administrators/Removal and because you have made fewer than ten logged administrator actions over the past six months, your adminship is under review at Meta:Administrators/Removal/October 2020. If you would like to retain your adminship, please sign there before October 11, 2020. Kind regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:40, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Прошу высказать Ваше мнениеEdit

Здесь Вы указаны как возможный посредник по вопросам социологии, культурологии и педагогики. Если вам не трудно, то выскажите, пожалуйста, свое мнение тут. Неаполитанец (talk) 12:34, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

@Неаполитанец: Посредничество - институт, применяемый в случае конфликтов. Ваша ситуация - иная. Но мнение выскажу, чуть позже. --Kaganer (talk) 14:30, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
Спасибо, но уже не требуется. Вопрос решился. Неаполитанец (talk) 15:17, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

Move MediaWiki:Common.cssEdit

Здраствуйте! Пожалуйста загрузите русскую версию MediaWiki: Common.css в Таджикскую Википедию Медиавики:Common.css. Поскольку большинство шаблонов в таджикской Википедии основаны на шаблонах русской Википедии, и если этот стиль не редактировать повторно, шаблоны не будут работать должным образом в таджикском разделе. Заранее спасибо --VASHGIRD (talk) 04:30, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

@VASHGIRD: Я же не админ в вашем разделе, поэтому никак не могу это сделать. А Вы, как я вижу, как раз админ. Так что вам придется самому разбираться, какие классы вам нужны, и переносить их к себе аккуратно. И не забывайте про MediaWiki:Mobile.css Kaganer (talk) 06:47, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
VASHGIRD, Kaganer, это к администраторам интерфейса, а не админам, админы не могут редактировать css-страницы. Нужно или выбрать локального администратора интерфейса (технически компетентый человек, не обязательно администратор, которому придётся включить двухфакторную авторизацию) или же если изменение разовое подать заявку на SRM чтобы задачу выполнил кто-то из стюардов или других людей с глобальными правами. --Base (talk) 06:50, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
