Presenting Community Engagement Insights survey report: Tuesday, October 10, 1600 UTCEdit

Hi Harej,
I am reaching out to you because you signed up to receive updates about the Global Wikimedia survey.[1]

We will be hosting a public event online to present the data, a few examples on how teams will be using it for annual planning, and what are next steps for this project. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 10, at 9:00 am PST (1600 UTC), and the presentation will be in English. You can watch the livestream here, and ask question via IRC on #wikimedia-office.

If you are unable attend, you can also find the report on meta, and watch the recording of the event at a later time.

We hope to have you join us online! -- María Cruz 23:29, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

Central notice adminshipEdit

Hi, the Foundation implemented a new inactivity policy for Central Notice Administrators, which says that CN admins who didn't use their rights in the past year should get them removed for security reasons. I therefore removed them from your account. You can request them again if you need them again. Best regards --MF-W 10:32, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

bio edit requestEdit

to substitute [[meta:Wikimedia District of Columbia|]] for [[Wikimedia District of Columbia]] so as to not break transclusions, for example on Wikidata. Cheers! Arlo Barnes (talk) 04:04, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

Arlo Barnes, feel free to make simple edits like that, though I am not sure what you mean. When I click "edit" on my user page I see [[Wikimedia District of Columbia]] without the wiki prefix. harej (talk) 18:19, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
It is not possible for a user page to be edited by an account other than the one it belongs to (or presumably by admins), for vandalism-avoidance reasons. Yes, it is currently without the prefix, which means that each project that transcludes the pages assumes it is a 'local' link; so using WD as an example, it would try to go to wikidata.org/wiki/Wikimedia District of Columbia, which would be a broken link since the main (prefixless) namespace is only for Q-numbers. Adding the prefix allows it to be a transwiki link instead. Arlo Barnes (talk) 22:01, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Arlo Barnes, that makes sense. I've made the requested edit. harej (talk) 22:20, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
