Translation

There was a request to have this RfC translated. Why did you remove the translation tags? Best Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:12, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Hey. See the talk page of the RfC. We're going to do it differently. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:12, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Hausa Wikipedia - Help page

Hi,

We talked recently on the Hausa Wikipedia. I was wondering if you could help me with something. "Taimako" ("Help" in Hausa), sixth link from the top on the left of Hausa Wikipedia pages currently redirects to this page, which is pretty useless given there is no content in Hausa there. I would like to change it into a link towards a proper help page/desk for Hausa speakers willing to contribute to the project. The link could be [[Wikipedia:Taimako]].

Do you think it is possible to do that ?

Thanks a lot, kind regards, --DonCamillo (talk) 20:29, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello @DonCamillo:: Simply put in Wikipedia:Taimako without brackets in ha:MediaWiki:Helppage. That should change the link to the page you'd like. Regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:28, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! --DonCamillo (talk) 09:51, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

unblock hetzner

Hi! It says the block is global. The message says it was created by User:Vituzzu (meta.wikimedia.org) with motivation Open proxy: hosting on hetzner.de + spam from 176.9.44.163 on march30 2013, 02:37AM and will be valid until march 30 2018 02:37AM. The blocked interval is 176.9.0.0/16. Thanks for your help! --Urticante (talk) 21:08, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi Urticante I think Vituzzu can grant you a local IP block exemption at it.wikipedia so you can edit there. Unfortunately the Hetzner range you operate on has been abused by other users for spamming our sites so we've been forced to block it. Vituzzu will follow up.

Global renames suspended at meta

At the moment, there are 13 global rename orders being suspended at meta. The first rename being suspended is Special:GlobalRenameProgress/Kathmandu2017 which was started at 16/8/2017 06:33 (UTC). Do we need to have a look to this issue? Regards, --J.Wong 14:18, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi Wong128hk. I have emailed the list asking fellow global renamers to stop renaming people until the queue is empty. Thanks for pointing this out! Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:22, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
