hy:wp reverts Edit

Hello Lucien, today on hy:wp, you've my edit (deleting whole page content). The thing is that a new user was registered, but instead of placing the welcome-template, to his User-talk page, I've placed in on User page by mistake. Then after noticing it, i've deleted whole page content, as there were no previous versions of page, I could roll back to. And you've restored this, made-by-mistake-edit, both created and reverted by same user. "Deleting whole page content" is not always an evil-minded action.

Involved in RC patrol by myself, I appreciate your work, but please be more attentive. :) --Xelgen 17:37, 13 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

LucienBOT confused about en:HP QuickTest Professional Edit

LucienBOT couldn't seem to get its act together when it edited en:HP QuickTest Professional today (yesterday, I guess?). First it added ru:HP LoadRunner, but then it changed its mind a minute later and changed that to ru:HP Quality Center. The correct link is, of course, ru:HP QuickTest Professional.

I'm not sure what was going on here, but the correct page existed before either of the other two pages, so that wasn't the problem. (Or wasn't the only problem.)

Ken g6 05:02, 6 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I see the problem: All three of the Russian pages linked to en:HP QuickTest Professional. Any way of weeding out weird cases like this, e.g. by deleting the link LucienBOT added when it finds a link to the same place on another page? If left unchecked, this could get very confusing.
I'm working on fixing the Russian pages.

Galactic Center and jądro galaktyki Edit


you removed my change, why? I removed the correspondence between the "Jadro galaktyki" in the Polish version of wiki and "Galactic Center" in the English version between there is no such correspondence. "Jadro galaktyki" mean a nucleus of any galaxy. There is, however, no such term in English wiki. On the other hand, "Galactic Center", with big G at the beginning, refers to OUR GALAXY, i.e Milky Way, and there are bilions of other galaxies in the Universe... You cannot make a correspondence for example between the star in Polish and the Sun in English, although the Sun is definitively also a star. I do not know how to resolve this issue but the current situation is unacceptable. (a registered user Bozena Czerny of Polish wiki).

Fine. I am an astronomer so I am sure. Finally I wrote a new Polish section on OUR GALAXY center and moved all the links there. Now it looks consistent. The previous Polish term should be linked to 'galactic nucleus' but there is no such separate term in the current English version. 16:06, 10 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sobre los estatutos Edit

Hola Jorge. He estado revisando los cambios efectuados en los Estatutos desde que tuve que "desconectar" para ver si hay cambios sustanciales. En principio todo bien pero como tengo alguna duda y no se cúando voy a poder conectarme al IRC prefiero preguntártelo aquí. Veo que se ha eliminado toda aquella referencia a los socios cadetes (vocalía que se encargaba Rastrojo) y tampoco se habla nada de las agrupaciones locales, ni de los vocales que estas podrán elegir, ni de ningún órgano formado por sus representantes (digo esto porque se habló de una especie de Comité de agrupaciones al estilo del Chap Com). Simplemente por saber qué ha pasado con estos puntos, si se tratará en el régimen interno, etc. Un abrazo. --Millars 10:26, 22 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hace un mes mandé a la lista de coreo de Iberocoop la solicitud de inscripción de Amical Viquipèdia. Galio me comentó por correo que había problemas en la lista por lo que una semana mas tarde colgué una copia de la solicitud en la página de discusión de Iberocoop.

Como no hemos recibido todavía ningún comentario supongo que la lista sigue con problemas y quizá nadie tiene vigilada la página de Iberocoop. Por ello os dejo este mensaje a un representante de cada uno de los chapters participantes.

Fundraising translation feedback Edit

Hey Lucien leGrey,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Spanish 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.

Many Thanks

Uklanjanje bot zastavice / Removal of bot flag Edit

(Bosanski) Želim da vas obavjestim da je se na donijela odluka da se uklone bot zastavice kod neaktivnih i/ili interwiki botova. Vaš bot spada u najmanje jednu od ove dvije kategorije. Ova odluka je donešena zbog zbivanja oko Wikidata koje je dovelo do toga da su interwiki botovi postali nepotrebni. Ako želite da zadržite vašu bot zastavicu onda možete podnijeti taj zahtjev ovdje sa dodatnim informacijama o poslovima koje bi bot obavljao i na koji nacin. Imaj te na umu da ovo treba da bude konkretan i koristan posao za zajednicu da bih se zastavica zadržala. Ako imate bilo kakvih pitanja kontaktirajte me na mojoj stranici za razgovor. Ukoliko ne reagujete na ovu poruku ce se uklanjanje zastavice izvršiti nakon nekoliko sedmica. Medutim, uvijek ste dobrodošli da podnesete novi zahtjev za bot zastavicu.

(English) I want to inform you that on there has been a voting that resulted in accepting the removal of bot flags for inactive and/or interwiki bots. Your bot has been identified to meet at least one of these criteria. This decision has been made due to the new developments with Wikidata by which all interwiki bots have become unnecessary. If you want to keep your bot flag, then please report that here by indicating what new task your bot will be performing and how this will be done. Note however that this has to be a concrete and useful task for the community before it will be accepted. If you have any questions, please let me know on my talk page. In case of no response, the removal of the bot flag will be performed within a few weeks from now. However, after that period you are always welcome to file a new request for a bot flag.

Inactive bot on Japanese Wikipedia Edit

Lucien leGreyさん、こんにちは。



Hi Lucien leGrey,

I noticed that your bot on japanese Wikipedia has been inactive for more than a year. If you wish to keep its bot flag, please use once within a month. If you no longer need it, the bot flag will be removed.

Regards, -- Banku on ja.wikipedia 05:58, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.


As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,

This gremlin over there Edit

It's bg:مستخدم:Lucien leGrey. Can you see what's going on? That page redirects to your user page here on meta, but as far as I can see it's not in the user namespace (the correct page for that is bg:Потребител:Lucien leGrey), it's in the mainspace (though strangely, doesn't appear to be indexed by the search engine). That's an error, right? Editors at the Bulgarian Wikipedia are very keen to delete all sorts of redirects, but they've somehow missed this one. If you think it should be deleted, let me know and I'll place a request for that. Uanfala (talk) 22:35, 15 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
