My VRT account has been closedEdit

Hello. I received an email that I was unsubscribed from the VRT mailing list. I also cannot login to my VRT account (User:4nn1l2) because it "has been closed, most likely due to inactivity." I have been active as recent as 5 June 2021. I was also active in both mailing lists discussions and the VRT wiki itself. My SUL account still shows that I am a member of the team. I couldn't find anyone asking the removal of my access in Steward requests/Global permissions/2021-08 or Steward requests/Global permissions/2021-07 either. What has happened? Thanks 4nn1l2 (talk) 19:41, 23 August 2021 (UTC)

Dear 4nn1l2, this has been done on request of the WMF, related to Special:Diff/21925170. Please contact WMF legal for details. --Krd 06:38, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. Just one more question: Do you require the VRT applicants to announce their country of residence when they apply to become VRT agents? 4nn1l2 (talk) 12:32, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
As far as I know, we don't. But it may happen that this will be required in the future. Please note that this is a sole WMF decision. I believe they have good reason, but I don't know the details. For anything further I suggest to ask them directly. --Krd 12:35, 24 August 2021 (UTC)

Possible inactive VRT usersEdit

There are two users, User:Tommyang and User:范, which is listed in Volunteer Response Team/Users, but not active on-wiki for several (about two) years. Are they still active in VRT? Are their NDA still valid (which may be affected by recent policy changes)?--GZWDer (talk) 15:28, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

Good point. There are a few roles that are exempt the from VRT internal activity monitoring, because the related queues are in very good standing and it may be difficult for an agent to catch a ticket they can work on. But this of course leave some real inactivities undetected, so I will change this now accordingly. Thank you for the heads-up.
Of course I cannot make any public statement about NDA issues. --Krd 15:38, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
Note 范 was formerly an OS but is desysoped and deoversighted in January 2017 (4 years ago). Also there are possibly much more users affected by policy change (see zh:Wikipedia:志愿者回复团队#名单, but I can not point out anyone that is surely living in Mainland China; many are mainland Chinese citizens living abroad). --GZWDer (talk) 15:56, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
The policy change enforcement is currently done by WMF directly. In this respect VRT admins are acting on their order only. --Krd 16:03, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

Notice of review of adminshipEdit

Hello Krd. In accordance with Meta:Administrators/Removal and because it looks that you have made fewer than ten logged administrator actions over the past six months, your adminship is under review at Meta:Administrators/Removal/October 2021. If you would like to retain your adminship, please kindly sign there before October 16, 2021. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:04, 9 October 2021 (UTC)

Title blacklistEdit

Add the title "Facebook.comfavebook.comfacebook.com" to the title blacklist to prevent nonsense pages like the old deleted one with the title from being created. Thanks! --TylerMagee (talk) 21:27, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

The page has been created only once, do you have additional examples the qualify for a title blacklist entry? --Krd 08:27, 13 November 2021 (UTC)
Here are some examples of why:
  1. The subject does not fit the topic of any Wikimedia project, including Meta, Wikipedia, Wikiquote, Wikibooks, Wikitionary, and MediaWiki.org.
  2. The title is used exclusively for libel and spam pages.
  3. It distrupts the Wikimedians and Wikipedians.
Also, indefinitely globally lock the IP or user that created the page and place {{Indefblocked}} on their talk page. I am usally not trying to troll you by placing a false block messqge on your talk - I used "nowiki", which disables wikitext.
--TylerMagee (talk) 09:10, 13 November 2021 (UTC)
I think the issue has already settled and no further action is required. If you disagree, please advise what I am missing. --Krd 09:20, 13 November 2021 (UTC)
You can create protect it instead. I will recreate the page with a creation protection request template and set the level to full to allow only admins to create it. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by TylerMagee (talk) 09:23, 13 November 2021 (UTC)

updateEdit

Hi, Could you please update VRT list, and remove both Freedom's Falcon and Fjmustak. Thanks.--Faisal talk 20:58, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

The list will be updated once a month. Is there any special need for immediate action? --Krd 22:09, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
No, but they should have been removed a few months ago I guess, and that's just a reminder to remove them with the nearest update.--Faisal talk 10:59, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
The mentioned accounts are still VRTS users. --Krd 14:02, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered usersEdit

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Removing my VRT requestEdit

Hello Krd,

I noticed that you have removed my VRT request without any mail justifying it. Can you please explain. --Contributers2020Talk to me here 13:11, 8 January 2022 (UTC)

Please check your e-mail. --Krd 13:14, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Doesn't seems to be...Contributers2020Talk to me here 13:28, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
It was sent. Please advise what can be done in addition. --Krd 13:30, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Just mail at c2020wmc@gmail.com or tell on the talk page because I completely not understand why it was declined.--Contributers2020Talk to me here 13:33, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
  Done --Krd 13:38, 8 January 2022 (UTC)

Inactive usersEdit

Hello. Considering that this RfC is likely failed at this stage, could you please (if you want and have time of course) amend the script populating User:Krd/inactive users to use the current Meta:Administrators/Removal criteria? This is so I can prepare for the upcoming April 1, 2022 inactivity review. For clarify, this still affects administrators, bureaucrats, checkusers and oversighters. Interface administrators do have a bit different criteria. See Meta:Interface administrators §§ Activity requirements​ and Involuntary removal. Thanks in advance for your assistance. Stay safe and healthy. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:06, 15 March 2022 (UTC)

That will take a few days, but think it should be possible until 1 April. --Krd 16:29, 16 March 2022 (UTC)
Chances are still good that this will get finished in time, i.e. today. Will keep you updated in any case. --Krd 05:43, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
See: User:Krd/inactive admins Will be updated tomorrow morning and then every 6 months. Please double check for the first time. --Krd 11:19, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

About Your BotEdit

In kowiki, Filedelinkerbot deleted some files that actually exist. Do you know why this happened? [1] (I'm sorry that I can't do english that well) Trusovafan (talk) 14:14, 5 May 2022 (UTC)

The file was deleted and then uploaded again. No bot mistake as far as I see. --Krd 16:46, 5 May 2022 (UTC)
Thank You:) Trusovafan (talk) 04:55, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
