Hi Matiia!

I do not know if it is correct to post my question here, so, sorry in advance if I am wrong.
Some weeks ago we requested a global banner on the Central Notice. We haven't had an answer. We know that many campaigns are going on during these coming months.It is not a problem if we have to change the dates if needed. TRhe banner refers to a initiative launched by Iberocoop. The editing contest "The woman you never meet" had great results the last 2 years in the LatinAmerican region and now we want the initiative to become global. The discussion about the rules of the contest is already happening in its meta page and many different chapters and user groups are getting interested by the proposal. As we want to reach as many Wikipedians as possible, we believe a global banner would help us. You can find our request here.
Do you think that we can have a response regarding our request? Thanks again for all your work!! Hugs!--Anna Torres (WMAR) (talk) 14:24, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Ok, I'll handle it. Matiia (talk) 18:16, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
Hola Matiia!
Cómo estás? Espero que muy bien! Estamos teniendo una mala repercusión con el banner. Perdón, nos equivocamos. Por ese motivo nos gustaría poder sacarlo ¿sería posible? gracias!--Anna Torres (WMAR) (talk) 15:18, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Hola. Hay un error en la fecha de las elecciones a Stewards como por ejemplo Stewards/Elections 2017/Statements/Ramesh S.Bohara donde dice que no firmó el acuerdo de confidencialidad pero las elecciones comienzan el 8 de febrero y no el 1 de febrero. ¿Sabes tú como arreglar eso?. El candidato tiene tiempo para firmar el acuerdo hasta el 8, pues la página principal indica que las elecciones empiezan el 8 de febrero. Gracias y suerte con la candidatura. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 18:56, 2 February 2017 (UTC).

@Ks-M9: Hola, tienes que actualizar la fecha en Template:Sr-elections 2017. Es uno de los parámetros de Template:Sr-problem. Gracias. Matiia (talk) 19:29, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
Lo he corregido pero aparece el candidato igual como descalificado. Ahora no sé cuál es el error por corregir en dicha plantilla, o probablemente me haya equivocado al corregir. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 21:34, 2 February 2017 (UTC).

Round ./. round – my fault

Hi Matiia! I found these different titles with R/round, so I had a look at main sections and categories, uppercase Round. But now I recognized, that there are many different spelling in the last few years. It looks like, that they use Round in main section and categories only, all other pages should be lowercase (I don't understand why, but …). Is it possible to rollback my requests? I will post here a list of these pages, so you must not search these entries. Please ping me, if possible. At least I will replace all Round-entries with round. --Plagiat (talk) 00:35, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Wikiversity Wikinews Wiktionary portals

Hi. I wanted to ask a question on the portals of Wikiversity Wikinews and Wiktionary. Me and Ferdi2005 noticed That Are graphically improved especially if you take a cue from the world of Wikipedia. How could we do experience the changes we would like to do That? Do you have any advice that you can give us? can groped the portal and bring back our proposal? There is Also a tab to see the effect of the text contained in template template and template so you can test and see how it is? Thanks and regards --Samuele2002 (Chiedi pure!) 21:37, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

@Samuele2002: those pages have subpages where you could test the code ( template/temp/sandbox, template/temp/sandbox and template/temp/sandbox, you'd need to click preview html on the top of them, where the edit and history buttons are), however, they don't seem to work anymore (the script doesn't work for me, not sure if it does for other users). If they don't work for you either, you could use the console of your browser and testing the HTML code from there, it'll be a bit harder to test though. If you click preview html on the top of the pages you linked, you may see how they look (the script works for me with the pages you linked). Those portal pages are no longer used by Wikimedia portal (changes are to be done on Gerrit now). What changes do you want to do? Matiia (talk) 22:36, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks very much for the answer :) I also do not see those pages correctly (I see only the code but the scripts does not work), more than anything else I wanted to try to improve the pages of the portal and make them more similar to Wikipedia, which is very well done graphically in comparison to others that still has much that they do not have a graphical review. Whereas these portals are a kind of "calling card" from the wiki project believe that it is positive that the page is graphically beautiful and cared for. --Samuele2002 (Chiedi pure!) 23:06, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Hello. it seems like my friend pedro pinto spammed because he thought it would help me to vote with new accounts, this spam isn't done by me and i didnt request him to do that. note that i asked my friends on facebook to vote for me. i just told him to stop creating fake accounts because it's useless.

thank you for your message!

Need info please

Speaking of which... after your block here [1], can you provide me with more information about the other socks of this account ? I thought that user only spoilt the vote of Wiki Loves Africa with a double dozen spam (which I reverted). But if he did worse than that, I believe we should cancel the vote altogether. Looking forward to more info on this. Please help. Anthere (talk) 21:17, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Actually... forget about my request. I saw this. Thanks Anthere (talk)


Hi anthere! i'm Taher the guy who has most votes (photo 28) on wiki loves africa. first of all i really appreciate that you accepted my photo as one of the bests in the contest!

Second, My friend said that he only created those accounts to vote for me, he thought it would help me so he did it without informing me, plus he didn't know it was against WLA rules, so i don't think i can be responsible for this because anybody could've done it without informing me, note that when he informed me about this i just deleted the votes he added with those fake accounts. and here's his contact so he can admit you personally that he is the one that created them and it's not me that i created them. full name : Pedro Pinto facebook : and number : +351 927764114

third, i just shared the link of contest to a couple of friends informing them about it and i said to some of them ' if u like my photo, i'd appreciate if you vote for it ' so i'm not forcing them, just suggesting for some friends ( like 6 friends or something ) - I saw many of people in contest doing this publicly in facebook and porbably all of them did it privately (so i'm not the only one and it seemed okay for everybody).

Why are you blaming me only for this? it's obvious that almost everyone in this contest shared link with their friends to vote for them.

and i only did this because it's logically acceptable (i'm not forcing them to vote for me) and because it's not against the contest's rules to inform your friends about the contest.

I hope you understand well that i warned my friend not to create any fake profiles again to vote for me, and i stopped informing my friends about the contest.

thank you for your time. @Anthere: @Matiia: --TaherNagati (talk) 23:05, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

xoser of

Hello, we have been waiting for sysop removal of access for Xoser of Zazaki Wikipedia since almost two week. We stated that Zazaki Wikipedia is so small and a third sysop is needless and so there is a consensus about remove Xoser's sysop access. When will we receive answer? And Xoser had automatically been desysopped due to the rule of 2 years of inactivity. As Melos says Xoser met the AAR inactivity criteria. But a steward made him sysop again, only for his demand. This is unfair. (this is all our conversation)

If so, all members can demand this from stewards. When we started local discussion on Zazaki Wikipedia, he came out after 3 years of inactivity. He did nothing for Zazaki Wikipedia for 3 years. The problem is that Xoser did nothing for Zazaki Wikipedia but he does not want to be desysopped too. Thanks. Vuzorg (talk) 10:44, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

@Vuzorg: Xoser wasn't desysopped due to the rule of 2 years of inactivity, it was due to a local discussion (here you can find Xoser's admin rights removal request), but as the most of those voters were Erdemaslancan's socks (3 of them), it was considered as invalid and the user rights was restored. Your local request on diqwiki is open since 15 April, which is the same day as you request to us to remove Xoser's admin rights. You shouldn't request to us to remove someone's user rights the same day that the voting got opened, it should be open for some time, so it makes sense that you request hasn't been handled yet. It is even still open, and once it get closed, some users will probably need to be checkusered, as it seems some users are using socks. I currently see no consensus to remove Xoser's admin rights, but this can, of course, change once socks votes are invalided. Btw, I'd recommend to read AAR policy to know how it works. Matiia (talk) 19:06, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
Dear @Matiia:,
  1. First desysop discussion had opened because of his AAR and there was a statement on local discussion stated that he was not active for 3 years (2014-2017). Please look at here Melos says you have to become active again because you meet the AAR inactivity criteria. This person (Xoser) met AAR inactivitiy criteria. But he demanded and Melos assigned him as sysop again. Is this really reasonable to assign a person as sysop again after 3 years of inactivity?
  2. On the other hand, as I explained, if you check all against votes on local discussion, I'am explaining acitivity periods Xoser (2014-2017), Neribij (2014-2017), Kirmanciye (2014-2017), Azadi (2014-2017), Asmen34 (2017 a new account, probably sock puppet), Gomada (sysop of Kurdish wikipedia who interferenes Zazaki Wikipedia's own problem). All of these accounts was active on 2014 and now again came out to vote, is this just a similaritiy? Obviously these accounts came out for only vote.
  3. Please check these account's (even my account, users who support removal of xoser's sysop access too) activity log. You will see what I am trying to tell. Vuzorg (talk) 07:53, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
I can just agree with Vuzorg. Please act after the AAA rules. Best regards. --asmên 15:24, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
@Vuzorg: 1) as I said, that first desysop discussion is invalid, not sure why you are still talking about it. If Melos restored the user right, it is because it shouldn't have been removed. We are waiting for the local decision before taking any action about Xoser. Please resolve this locally and once you have a decision, we'll take any action, if needed.
2) and 3), yes, I know, and that is the reason because I said that some users will need to be checkusered, some votes are also clearly canvassed. I've checked some users and via CU, I can only confirm that Memedaga is a sock of Asmen. Matiia (talk) 17:26, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Matiia, and sorry for writing on your page. It is important that you found out User:Asmen (who is an admin on diq.wikipedia) has a suck (User:Memedaga) If you don't mind, I will mention it here. Cheers!--Gomada (talk) 19:00, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

@Gomada: yes, it's okay. Feel free to do it. Matiia (talk) 00:10, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
That's not true. Memedaga is a member of the managing comitee of our Zazaki Institute who used sometimes my laptop. I am a sysop and an active member of Zazaki Wikipedia. Why should I use a sock puppet --Asmêno Bêwayir (mesac) 23:33, 3 Gulan 2017 (UTC)
@Asmen: it looks like you used a sock to support requests which you think that should be approved. Matiia (talk) 00:43, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
You should ask also the other guys about this who try to misuse your unproven statement. I wrote who the user Memedaga is. --asmên 12:04, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Dear @Matiia:

Asmen is a sysop of Zazaki Wikipedia since almost 2006. Why does he need use a sock puppet? On the other hand, Gomada is sysop of another, apart wikipedia, he is sysop of Kurdish Wikipedia. I do not understand why he interferes Zazaki Wikipedia's own problem? Maybe because of that he shares same political (anti-Armenian, anti-Turkish, anti-Zaza and pro-Kurdist) and religious (Islamist) views with Xoser? Is this moral that Gomada meddle Zazaki Wikipedia's own problem from another wikipedia? If I meddle English wikipedia's or another wikipedia's own problem, would it be fair?

I think that (I'm sure of that) Xoser called people Neribij, Kirmanciye, Azadi, Asmen34 and from another wikipedia Gomada to get support. Even these account's activities and contributions are not permanent, year by year. Is this fair consider their votes valid? And the biggest problem, a third sysop is really needed for a small wiki like Zazaki Wikipedia? We don't think so, we say no, it's not needed. Vuzorg (talk) 13:10, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

̣@Vuzorg: CheckUser data says that he is using a sock, I'm not sure about the reason why he does so and I won't speculate about it. If their votes are valid or not, it's something that diqwiki community should decided. A third sysop is not the biggest problem at all, I'm unable to understand why you are so obsessed with it and if it's needed or not, it should be decided by diqwiki community, we (stewards) won't remove a user right from any user because we (stewards) think it's not needed. Again, please try to resolve this locally. Matiia (talk) 16:16, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Do me a favor.

lock my account. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MechQuester (talk)

Hi. We don't lock accounts per self-request, you can just stop to use it. Matiia (talk) 20:06, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
ok. Can you rename my account to "vanished user"? MechQuester (talk) 20:13, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
That username is already taken. Please use Special:GlobalRenameRequest, if you want to change your username. Matiia (talk) 20:15, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
@MechQuester: Self-requested account locks are in fact allowed. See this discussion. If you wish that, you may file a request at SRG, but the consequences are those described by MarcoAurelio in that discussion. I don't recommend it. Defender (talk) 20:37, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Período en SRGP

Hola. El Steward Ruslik0 modificó el tiempo de la solicitud del usuario DARIO SEVERI en SRGP. Para mí se equivocó, porque la solicitud está hecha desde el 11 de julio y en dos semanas tendría que terminar (25 de julio) pero el Steward extendió la petición hasta el 1 de agosto. ¿Sabes cómo es eso, o acaso se ha equivocado? --Ks-M9 [disc.] 22:58, 18 July 2017 (UTC).

@Ks-M9: aparentemente se confundió con la fecha de la edición que hizo DARIO SEVERI hoy, donde al final de la presentación que hizo, sale el 18 de julio, y desde el 18 de julio al 1 de agosto, hay dos semanas. Siéntete libre de deshacerle. Matiia (talk) 23:28, 18 July 2017 (UTC)


Sorry to disturb you again with these complaints about IRC, but whenever I try to connect to IRC with "", it keeps disconnecting me from the server. I never had this problem before my long break from IRC (Summer 2017). Has something changed with IRC? Or is it just my IRC? Thanks. Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 14:24, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

@Atcovi: hi. What message does it show you? Matiia (talk) 23:55, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

[10:20:57] Connecting to server...
[10:20:57] Connected...
[10:20:57] Disconnected from the IRC server ""!
[10:20:57] Reconnecting in 7 second(s)... (Cancel)

And it just repeats.... It's pretty annoying and I want to get rid of this problem. Thanks. Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 14:21, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

@Atcovi: this doesn't seem to be an issue anymore? Matiia (talk) 23:43, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
It does this time to time. Still an issue. Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 00:43, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
@Atcovi: It isn't enough information for me knowing what happens, does it show you anything else? what's the configuration of your client? Matiia (talk) 00:57, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

I haven't been able to connect to IRC during school, so it may be because of the school. Will report back if I have anymore errors on IRC. Thanks! Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 14:42, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Help design a new feature to stop harassing emails

Hi there,

The Anti-Harassment Tools team plans to start develop of a new feature to allow users to restrict emails from new accounts. This feature will allow an individual user to stop harassing emails from coming through the Special:EmailUser system from abusive sockpuppeting accounts.

We’re inviting you to join the discussion because you have experience dealing with abusive sockpuppeting accounts and you work across many wikis. We think that your insights will help us build a better feature.

You can leave comments on this discussion page or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.

It is important to hear from a broad range of people who are interested in the design of the tool, so we hope you join the discussion and let us know how it would work best for you.

Smart rollback

Hola Matiia: Te escribo a ti porque como usuario veterano que eres, pienso que puedes orientarme en este asunto. Acabo de instalar el script smart rollback, pero al parecer no me funciona. Si bien en la página hay una nota que dice The links at the top are only going to appear if there is at least one rollback link on the page, no estoy muy seguro de qué significa eso. Pensaba que podías ayudarme en resolver esto. Saludos, Esteban16 (talk) 23:34, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

@Esteban16: Hola. Si en la página en la que estás, hay un enlace para revertir una edición, en la esquina superior derecha te aparecerá un botón que dice smart rollback, que al presionarlo, te aparecerá el cuadro de esta imagen (prueba por ejemplo en esta página). La herramienta funcionará solo si tienes la capacidad de revertir una edición (siendo un administrador, reversor o tener algún permiso global que incluya dicho permiso). Matiia (talk) 23:45, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Ya veo, creí que se trataba de un script para revertir en cualquier wiki. Muchas gracias por la explicación. Esteban16 (talk) 23:48, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Failed message: Changes to the global ban policy

I noticed the bulk message "Changes to the global ban policy" failed on the nl:wikt Village Pump. Are we the only one, did we do something wrong, are you going to retry or do we have to solve this ourselves? --MarcoSwart (talk) 00:22, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

@MarcoSwart: Hi. I don't know if nlwikt is the only wiki where it failed, I'm not sure why it happened either. I won't retry it, as the message would be leaved twice on some wikis. I've posted the mssage on your VP myself. Matiia (talk) 16:39, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Ayuda con Wikimedia

Hola Matiia,

Soy un Wikipedista que colabora activamente con el mantenimiento de Wikipedia y sufro una discapacidad grave que este año se ha agravado exponencialmente y me gustaría saber si existe un departamento en Wikimedia relacionado con la discapacidad, por consejo de mis cercanos y de mi psicólogo me recomendaron que hiciese realidad alguna vieja aspìración o algo que me llenase y me ayudase a intentar llevar un poco mejor la situación, cómo sería el hecho de ser Bibliotecario en Wikipedia, cosa que me resulta imposible dado que no llevo un año en ella, aunque colaboré con otros ordenadores cómo IP, y aunque llevase un año, no ganaría la votación dada la desconfianza de la Comunidad. --MONUMENTA (talk) 15:00, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

@MONUMENTA: hola. Desafortunadamente, no conozco la existencia de un departamento relacionado a ese tema. Matiia (talk) 16:31, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

Muchas gracias Matiia, y disculpa las molestias. --MONUMENTA (talk) 17:03, 17 November 2017 (UTC)


Hola Matiia, espero que te encuentres bien. Me gustaría que me ayudaras sobre un asunto que si bien ya fue contenido en Wikipedia en español por Bernard, ahora pretende extenderse a Commons con acoso hacia Chico512 y mi persona, donde ha proferido insultos y amenazas. Siento que el susodicho busca el bloqueo global de su cuenta. Saludos. --Taichi - (あ!) 06:31, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

El usuario ha comenzado a generar nueva guerra de ediciones en commons. Saludos. --Chico512 (talk) 15:02, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
@Taichi: buenas, yo también espero que estés bien :). Veo que el usuario ha sido bloqueado en commonswiki recientemente, después de una solicitud de Chico512. En estos momentos, lo mejor es manejarlo localmente. Si en el futuro el usuario sigue buscando problemas en más wikis (unos 2 o 3 wikis más) con estos problemas, lo mejor sería iniciar una solicitud de comentarios para banearle globalmente, pero en estos momentos, es algo que debe ser manejado localmente. Matiia (talk) 16:45, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
Gracias Matiia y también a Chico512. --Taichi - (あ!) 23:10, 17 November 2017 (UTC)


Hi! Delete broken redirects from the list. (talk) 10:52, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

I've reverted your edit. You don't need to redirect pages candidate for deletion. I don't know that language, so I'm not sure how relevant is that article, thus I'll let another steward/global sysop to handle the possible deletion. Matiia (talk) 23:57, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
