Global+local IPBE request edit
Unblock request granted
This blocked user asked to be unblocked, and one or more administrators has reviewed and granted this request.
Request reason: Hello, friends! Due to an electrical issue in my home, I'm currently routing all of my editing through a mobile hotspot on my phone, and am unlucky enough to be using T-Mobile, which often has large ranges blocked. And as it happens, Operator873 just gblocked for a year. While I can probably get access to other networks to make an edit here and an edit there, or just wait and hope T-Mobile cycles me onto an unblocked range, I was hoping to get short-term global IPBE, since otherwise there's really no guaranteed way to make frequent edits.
I currently run a bot on enwiki, where all bots have bundled IPBE, and in the past have been on Wikidata, where all sysops have bundled IPBE, so I'd hope that I'm trusted enough to have this right for a bit. The electricians think they may be able to fix things today or tomorrow, but I'd hate to ask for just 24-48h of IPBE and then be told it'll actually be longer, and have to bother a steward again, so to play it safe I'm requesting global and local IPBE for 1 week. Thanks. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 18:35, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

Queering Wikipedia 2023 conference edit
Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group and the organizing team of Queering Wikipedia is delivering the Queering Wikipedia 2023 Conference for LGBT+ Wikimedians and allies, as a hybrid, bilingual and trans-local event. It is online on 12, 14 and 17 May, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia #IDAHOBIT, with offline events at around 10 locations on 5 continents in the 5-day span as QW2023 Nodes.
The online program is delivered as a series of keynotes, panels, presentations, workshops, lightning talks and creative interventions, starting on Friday noon (UTC) with the first keynote of Dr Nishant Shah entitled: I spy, with my little AI — Wikiway as a means to disrupt the ‘dirty queer’ impulses of emergent AI platforms. Second keynote is at Sunday’s closure by Esra’a Al Shafei, Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees vice chair, entitled: Digital Public Spaces for Queer Communities.
If you have been an active Wikimedian or enthusiast, supporting LGBT+ activities or if you identify as part of the larger LGBT+ community and allies in Wikimedia, please join us in advancing this thematic work. We encourage you to join online or in person with fellow Wikimedians if it is easy and safe to do so. Our working languages are English and Spanish, with possible local language support at sites of Nodes.
Registration for the online event is free and is open until Wednesday May 10th at 18:00 UTC, for safety protocol. Late event registration approval and event access denial is at the discretion of organizers.
