Fundraising translation feedback edit
Hey L736E, I have a bit of a request to ask from you. We pulled down our banners nearly a fortnight ago for what was a highly successful international fundraiser and brought the curtain down on last years fundraiser. This week however we will be changing payment processors and during the testing of the new system it would be useful to use the time productively on on testing banner text.
To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to help us improve our italian text using This Link
Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.
We are going to run the test on tuesday so if you dont see this message till 24 hours after it was sent you can ignore me :) Many Thanks though.
Superprotect letter update edit
Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.
Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on change.org, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.
I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.
Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.
Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.
Salve, io sono da sempre un ammiratore di Wikipedia e nel mio piccolo ho sempre cercato di dare il mio contributo alla sua crescita, soprattutto durante questi ultimi giorni. (soprattutto alle pagine dei record del nuoto, chiedere per conferma all'user AndreaCoppola00 che a un certo punto mi ha anche ringraziato per l'opera da me prestata)
I miei contributi finora li ho sempre dati da "esterno", cioè da utente non registrato, identificato solamente dall'indirizzo IP 188.8.131.52. (Giusto questo pomeriggio è cambiato in 184.108.40.206, ma non c'entra molto col discorso)
Solo oggi ho deciso di registrarmi presso Wikipedia, e nel farlo, non sapendo così su due piedi che nome utente usare, ho provvisoriamente e a quanto pare anche inopportunamente scelto il nome "ForSaleBabyShoesNeverWorn", un'esplicita citazione del famoso (o così credevo) romanzo in sei parole di Ernest Hemingway.
Dieci minuti dopo averlo creato, mi sono ricollegato per cambiarlo, ma ho scoperto che nel frattempo mi avevi comminato un blocco PERPETUO.
Io nel frattempo mi son fatto cambiare nome in "Corsaiolo" nell'apposita pagina, ma nonostante questo il blocco è rimasto.
Ora, considerando che si tratta di un clamoroso fraintendimento, chiedo credo a buon titolo di essere reintegrato, perché come ho già spiegato il mio username non era spam ma un romanzo in sei parole del più famoso scrittore dell'epoca moderna.
Confidando in una pronta risoluzione dell'equivoco saluto,
Grazie, me ne sono reso conto dopo, vista a posteriori è una cosa abbastanza intuibile, ma è un errore che ho fatto in buona fede Saluto
L737E ti scrivo qui perchè su it.wikipedia non c'è possibilità di fare richieste di sblocco. Ti chiedo di sbloccare il mio range IP per piacere. Non so quale persona volevi bloccare però io non c'entro niente. Negli ultimi giorni ho fatto alcuni edit costruttivi, Capriano, Stella nascente, The Possession of Michael King, Umberto I (La Spezia), e altri. Adesso non posso fare più niente neanche registrarmi. Per favore ti prego di sbloccare il range IP perchè io non sono un troll e ho sempre contribuito in modo positivo su it.wikipedia per cui non merito questo blocco.--220.127.116.11 14:15, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Queering Wikipedia 2023 conference edit
Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group and the organizing team of Queering Wikipedia is delivering the Queering Wikipedia 2023 Conference for LGBT+ Wikimedians and allies, as a hybrid, bilingual and trans-local event. It is online on 12, 14 and 17 May, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia #IDAHOBIT, with offline events at around 10 locations on 5 continents in the 5-day span as QW2023 Nodes.
The online program is delivered as a series of keynotes, panels, presentations, workshops, lightning talks and creative interventions, starting on Friday noon (UTC) with the first keynote of Dr Nishant Shah entitled: I spy, with my little AI — Wikiway as a means to disrupt the ‘dirty queer’ impulses of emergent AI platforms. Second keynote is at Sunday’s closure by Esra’a Al Shafei, Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees vice chair, entitled: Digital Public Spaces for Queer Communities.
If you have been an active Wikimedian or enthusiast, supporting LGBT+ activities or if you identify as part of the larger LGBT+ community and allies in Wikimedia, please join us in advancing this thematic work. We encourage you to join online or in person with fellow Wikimedians if it is easy and safe to do so. Our working languages are English and Spanish, with possible local language support at sites of Nodes.
Registration for the online event is free and is open until Wednesday May 10th at 18:00 UTC, for safety protocol. Late event registration approval and event access denial is at the discretion of organizers.
More information, and registration details, may be found on Meta at QW2023
About the LTA:HoY edit
This user began destructive activity on zhwiki as early as March 2023, including abusive user names. In the last few days alone, several socks of HoY have been seized on zhwiki.
I understand that you are the administrator of itwiki, for information about HoY's abusive activities at zhwiki, see w:zh:LTA:HoY. However, zhwiki has not taken any defensive measures against this LTA at present, so I hope itwiki can discuss with zhwiki community on the prevention and treatment of this LTA, thank you! СлаваУкраїні! 12:35, 22 May 2023 (UTC)
- We've been able to stop any attempt by HoY for logging into it.wiki by exploiting a smart AbuseFilter. Since this filter is active, he managed only two or three times entering the project, being by the way immediately recognized and blocked (so with a definitely lower load for patrollers and admins). We already shared our filter with admins on fr.wiki (and it worked), I'm available to share that filter with zhwiki.--Superspritztell me 14:47, 22 May 2023 (UTC)
