ABOUT A PROPOSALEdit
Developer wishlist survey voteEdit
Thanks for the notification on zh-yue.wiki's VPT. I've read through all the proposal titles but it seems that not that many of them are at all relevant to editors, however technically competent, who aren't already developers... I guess it's our bad for missing the proposal stage. Deryck C. 11:42, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
When you delete a page, please pay attention to make sure you're deleting what you actually want to delete. :-) If you want we can get the sysop bits removed from your account: it's unnecessarily frustrating to have such buttons when one has so few chances to practice their usage. --Nemo 21:22, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Hello, in MediaWiki we generally use sentence case, it's part of the free links practice. I think  was made unintentionally, before seeing related changes, so I've restored the traditional title. --Nemo 21:25, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
- Thank you for your help and for sharing useful tips! I will keep that in mind for the next time :) -- SSethi (WMF) 19:35, 5th July 2017 (UTC)
Hello, I've applied several wikitext fixes (apart from typos):
- avoid adding unit markers manually;
- http://www.wikimedia.org/ is not a suitable link target for a translatable page, because it's not translatable, so you need to choose something like Wikimedia movement or Wikimedia projects here on Meta-Wiki;
- it's not allowed to use the |link= syntax with images which are not in the public domain, unless you take care of license compliance (usually attribution to the authors and mention of the license) yourself, e.g. on the page itself;
- finally, and unimportantly, "metawiki:" is not really a prefix we use (if the VisualEditor added it, please report that as a bug).

Great to meet you!Edit
Following up the IP banEdit
We had the chance to meet around a table at Wikimania with Satdeep. In the last survey to developers, I reported the IP ban issue. I am happy it was mentioned in the report as this really is a constraint, at least for me. Though this might be an isolated case, it restrains me from pursuing my commitment with my peer African Wikimedian Developers. Is something planned to be done about this issue?
- Hello Samuel, Thank you your message and thank you for reporting about the issue in the survey. I will look into the issue, discuss with my team and will get back to you ASAP. SSethi (WMF) (talk) 07:51, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
- @African Hope:,@SSethi (WMF): Hi everyone! So, let's see... Earlier this year, we had a lot of spam and uploads of material that should not be in Phabricator. We discussed the situation and what to do in phab:T168142. In the end the result is that we currently block certain IP ranges of some specific Wikipedia Zero providers, so these people cannot access Phabricator. But obviously there is some unexpected behavior (like phab:T173537 where Derrick reported that he cannot view images but that he is not on Wikipedia Zero), or phab:T174342 which implies that we miss some IP ranges for Wikipedia Zero providers that we thought we would block. Also note that one IP range in our block got very recently narrowed in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/389888 so we block less users. If you experience problems and you are not using Wikipedia Zero in Morocco or Algeria (I think you are not), I'd love to have a good description what happens, which browser you use, which internet provider, whether that is (also) a mobile provider or not, from which country, and which IP address you have. As that is all rather sensitive personal data that you might not want to publish here in public, feel free to drop me an email to aklapper wikimedia.org. Thanks. And sorry for the hassle. :-/ --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 18:03, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

[WikiConference India 2020] Invitation to participate in the Community Engagement SurveyEdit

The survey will have questions regarding a few demographic details, your experience with Wikimedia, challenges and needs, and your expectations for WCI 2020. The responses will help us to form an initial idea of what is expected out of WCI 2020, and draft the grant application accordingly.
