Get Token or be a token masterEdit

Hey Amir, I was trying to explore the Wikimedia meet. I would be happy to be Tokenmaster and support the Odia Wiki community and other language community members in India. Let me know, thanks -13:43, 27 April 2020 (UTC)


Hi Ladsgroup, I would like to help our community organize online meets here. Please add me as a ticketmaster. Regards, -- Bodhisattwa (talk) 03:35, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Token for Wikiproject Covid-19 callsEdit

Hello Amir,

We have regular meetings in the Wikiproject Covid-19 on Wikidata (https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_COVID-19/Project_meeting)

The Wikimedia Meet is a nice option, but ideally, the meeting would be open for anyone interested in particpating, even if they are new to Wikimedia.

1 - May I have a token? 2 - Is it possible to have open meetings for people external to Wikimedia?

Hey, I just sent you a token over email. Best Amir (talk) 00:57, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. I had a little problem with my password manager and I cannot login. And there is no way to reset it or any "I forgot my password" systems. Would you be able to help me fix it? Thanks! (I set my username there the same as here, TiagoLubiana). TiagoLubiana (talk) 01:50, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Wikimedia MeetEdit

  1. Please can I have a token for Wikimedia Meet?
  2. If you still need more ticketmasters, I'm happy to help out (I'm UK based, so can cover UTC & adjacent timezones especially)

Two thingsEdit

Android and suggested editsEdit

I never properly got back to you for the feedback for Android and suggested edits. I've discussed this in meetings with the Android team, and also wrote a short general introduction at mw:User:Johan (WMF)/Suggest edits issues – there's been more details mentioned in meetings, of course, but if you think anything major is missing there, please let me know. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 20:37, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

User:Johan (WMF). Thanks for writing that up. I can add that the problem is not that Wikidata has a very few patrollers. Its multi-lingual nature makes patrolling really hard. I can't patrol Japanese description edits and if I could, it would be rather hard to find a place to see them all together. A while back I wrote WDVD to help with this. For example: Description changes in Swedish but not every Wikipedia (emphasizing on Wikipedia not Wikidata) patroller knows this. Specially this is something that affects Wikipedias while lots of Wikipedians don't know how they are even being shown in the apps and they look in the talk page or other places to find it.

Thanks for the criticism – added a sentence at the addendums to clarify. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 10:26, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Tech NewsEdit

A logo change isn't really a piece of technical news, it's more of a piece of non-technical news relevant to the technical community, whereas Tech News mainly attempts to spread information from the latter to everyone else. I'm not sure I see how that fits into the newsletter? I can do my best to help spread the word, though, and have started doing so in other venues. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 20:37, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. I would argue due to change to "Powered by MediaWiki" button at bottom of every page, this is sorta affect them too but I get your point and don't have much preference on this topic. Amir (talk) 05:04, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
