Thank you for volunteering for the rename team! I was actually thinking the other day with the recent changes to the policy, it would be helpful to have more hands on deck from your project. Very much appreciated :) TonyBallioni (talk) 20:38, 31 December 2018 (UTC)Reply



Does username policy on itwiki allow blocking people for username violations, if a) it's not even user's home wiki b) they don't even edit that project. Was looking at this rename in which user blocked niether edit that project nor it's their home wiki, although the username is somewhat problematic but just curious to know because I asked the blocking admin and they said - La policy Aiuto:Nome utente è indipendente dai contributi e si attua prima che l'utente contribuisca. Thanks! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:57, 12 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for your response, I was just curious because blocking a user who doesn't even edit the project or have other wiki as homewiki doesn't make sense to me and upon asking that to blocking admin I received Questa è la wikipedia in lingua italiana e queste sono le nostre policy :-). Anyway as we can see the rename has been processed already, should we ping the renamer to this discussion, because maybe such names are allowed on their project. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:01, 13 February 2019 (UTC)Reply
@1997kB: policies are established by communities, and admins just execute their will. Sometimes admins take action even if they disagree. Anyway, after a quick clarification the issue has been solved and the user unblocked. I wanted to make sure to deal with that first, so that global renamers could keep the conversation here without feeling any pressure. Now then, @MBq: could you please check this rename? My question is whether it has ever been decided anywhere that renamers can accept usernames with unassigned characters like ☀.--Sakretsu (talk) 15:17, 16 February 2019 (UTC)Reply
Global policy is here [1]. Actually, I hesitated granting that request. But at last decided to accept it, since our de.wp policy [2] does not interdict it. Of course, some other projects might use stricter policies, AFAIK en.wp for example forbids company names or brands as user names, which we in de.wp allow. - If User:☀ fiat lux starts to contribute somewhere where pictographs are not suitable there's time to inform him/her and then act appropriately to his/her reaction. --MBq (talk) 19:01, 17 February 2019 (UTC)Reply
@MBq: neither do we explicitly forbid these characters on, because we take for granted that such names would be prevented by default. Given that no discussion between renamers has occurred, I think I'll submit the matter on the mailing list and see if this goes beyond local policies or if such restriction can actually be overridden. Thank you for the answer!--Sakretsu (talk) 00:06, 18 February 2019 (UTC)Reply

Css Removal of controls from MediaWiki without community consensus .


(Request on SRM / nvwiki) I saw that you removed several controls that the local Administrator 2018 falsely removed on its own without community consensus. become. Controls that are necessary to operate MediaWiki should not be removed, even if # ca-move, # ca-delete and others are usually not used on some pages. Also, the (# ca-ve-edit) visual editor should not be hidden by any administrator without consensus of the community, as this affects all users of the community. Hiding with "! Important" is also wrong, since users cannot overwrite it. Therefore, in my opinion it is important not only to remove the 7 requested--𝐖𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐁𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 👤💬 12:06, 23 June 2020 (UTC)Reply

@WikiBayer: hey, thanks for getting in touch with me. The reason why I reverted part of your edits is that, as Danny pointed out, that rule is meant to improve the main page and prevent it from being moved or deleted by mistake. The same is more or less done on several Wikipedias, see for instance enwiki. I agree that the !important is not ideal, but it doesn't matter because user styles are the last to be loaded, so anyone can use display: inherit !important to override it. About the visual editor, since it's up to the local community to decide, please first make sure that it's been hidden without consensus before restoring its visibility again. If I'm correct, we shouldn't take actions based on unproven assumptions. Let me know if anything else needs clarifying--Sakretsu (炸裂) 15:05, 23 June 2020 (UTC)Reply

初めまして、 私はAso789として山口市に関する荒らしとされてしまいました。しかし元々はwikiの差分2020年1月28日時点で”山口県の県庁所在地でありながら市内総生産では人口規模で上回る下関市に次ぐ存在[1]であり、県内において経済的に大きな求心力を持たない。”との記述がありました。確かにしない総生産は下関の次(当時実際には周南市に次ぐ3番目)でしたが、”県内において経済的大きな求心力をもたない”となっていましたが、この部分は出典もなく、検証可能な事実と言うより、解釈が入っているため独自の研究に該当するのは胃パン的に考えれば明らかである上、現実としては、県内のJAが統合され本部を山口市に置いていたり、信頼できる将来の人口予測で山口市の人口減少率が県内では圧倒的に少なく相対的集中が今後生じることなどから、求心力を持たないという記述は、偏った記述でもあり、それを修正すべく私は記事を編集しました。サッカーチームのレノファの県についても、本拠地である県の陸上競技場と、下関の陸上競技場が同格であるような記述であったため、本年度の予定ホームゲーム試合数(山口市9試合にたいし下関1試合)書きましたが、それを独自の研究とされ、さらに荒らしとまで言われてしまいました。ゲーム数は球団のHPを根拠としており、検証可能な事実で、解釈は加えていないため独自の研究と見なすのは行き過ぎと考えるのが自然と思われるにもかかわらずそれだけで荒らし扱いです。Wikiにおける荒らしは、ガイドライン上”百科事典の品質を故意に低下させようとするあらゆる編集”とされておりますが、私はそのようなことは一切意図してはおりません。編集合戦になり不適切な編集をしてしまったのは事実ですが、これは、山口市の概要において、山口市の求心力の弱さがばかりが目立つ記述であったためです。一般的な県庁所在地に比べれば人口集積も低いといえますが、国立大学や県立の施設が集中していたり、近年下関市と周南市に置いていた支店を山口市に統合する動きなどがみられる(具体例を挙げれば、郵便局の集配局の機能を下関郵便局と徳山郵便局がこれまで担ってきたものが、今は山口郵便局に統合されている)また、周南市の専門学校が山口市に移転する、JR西日本広島支社で下関地域鉄道部と徳山地域鉄道部に分かれていたのが、いまでは両地域鉄道部はなくなり山口支社が成立するなど、山口市の求心力はむしろ強まる傾向を示しています。しかし旧来の記述を守ろうとする編集者は、山口市に求心力が低いという旧来の記述に反するような編集をすれば、それをを荒らしとみなし、管理人もそれを信じて私をブロックするようになりました。旧来の独自の研究による記述や偏った内容を修正使用としただけなのですが、それを主張すればするほど荒らしと見なされ、その後、ノートでの議論も永久にブロックされる羽目になりました。仕方なく別のルートから編集をしました。確かにwikiのルール上引っかかる行為ではありますが、自分の考えを伝えるにはこうするしか方法はありません。しかし旧来の立場を取る編集者にとっては、まさに的の首を取ったかのように徹底的に叩きました。たしかにルール上筆禍行為なのでブロックも甘んじて受けましたが、ブロックが解除された後に新たな記述をすると、私を悪く思っている変種者などはここぞとばかりに私を叩いて、ノートも含め無期限のブロックに持って行こうとされ、実際わたしはもうどうすることもできなくなってしまっています。





wikiを学術的に適切な百科事典として少しでも完成度をあげるためには、あなたのお力添えが必要不可欠です。-- 14:05, 13 October 2020 (UTC)-- 14:01, 13 October 2020 (UTC)--240B:253:53C1:A600:C51C:3F30:64D:7691 13:45, 28 September 2020 (UTC)Reply

Hi User:Sakretsu, thank you very much for helping pointing out the many errors at Nias Wikipedia. Our Wikipedia has just graduated from the incubator a month ago and our community is a very small one. So others in my community and I have still to learn a lot.

I have a question if you don't mind. Is there any method to import a templat with all relevant templates and modules with it? Yesterday I was trying to make the template Infobox person work. So I started copying that one from Indonesian/English Wikipedia. But that led to many other templates and modules. I haven't even finished copying them all until now. It would be a great help if there is a way to import them at once. I'm grateful for every tips. Thanks. Slaia (talk) 20:02, 1 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hi User:Slaia, perhaps this help page might be of your interest. To tell the truth, I have never used the import process before but it should be an easier way to import pages from other wikis.

Mi pare che non c'è neanche bisogno di perdere tempo, si è confesso da se. Dear I can understand your uneasiness regarding those articles, but if you want to own anything, wiki it's not the place; you can engage yourself in an academic carier and/or right an article regarding this pov you're pushing. It is of the outmost necessity giving the articles a proper critical observation of diferentiated sources; and I can see you projecting your old fellow on me, but you must take a grip and start anew, quit babysitting the same articles in years. We can't have a eulogical ante-mural complex in a public encyclopedia, even it is as modest as the Albanian one; calling this hate is over-simplifying at it's best.

Restoring spam pages on Wikimania


just because there are some active sysops? This is a GS wiki for a reason... Leaderboard (talk) 13:03, 18 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Leaderboard: because I shouldn't have deleted those pages in the first place. I guess you could say that the global sysop policy does not allow global sysops to do that for a reason. Since there was no emergency, it's fine. I just wasted a couple of minutes of my time, though you can still start a new discussion and discuss changes to the policy if you're interested. Of course, I'm not going to complain :-) --Sakretsu (炸裂) 14:08, 18 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
The GS policy does not prohibit global sysops and stewards from operating in GS-enabled wikis. The 3-admins rule was only a thing in 2010, when the exclusion-inclusion list was drawn up. Wikis with any number of admins (such as en.wikivoyage's 50) are free to opt in/out, and in that case GS and stewards should be free to operate per policy. Also checked this with @Base: who found this weird. Leaderboard (talk) 15:09, 18 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
I just re-deleted them on common sense notions that it is not a content wiki and it seemed very bureaucratic to purposely keep spam after it has already been deleted once. Also as I have been an admin of a number of former Wikimania wikis I have decided that no one should mind anyway. I guess we can discuss policy change, chapter and similar wikis are really a different kind of beast than content wikis, but to be honest I do not think this should become a big deal. --Base (talk) 15:15, 18 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Base: I think I've seen more than one person saying that everything we do at a global level is very bureaucratic, and yet we still do things this way. Whether it is a matter of policies or common sense (it doesn't look like you two are exactly on the same page here), again I'm not going to complain if there are fellow stewards or global sysops who believe they can take action in circumstances like these--Sakretsu (炸裂) 16:47, 18 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
My answer is we don't? Because by your logic, Wikivoyage with 50 sysops cannot have global sysops operating inside, even though they have opted-in. Leaderboard (talk) 07:28, 19 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Leaderboard: global sysops can always operate in English Wikivoyage per local policy. I'm not aware of an equivalent policy on Wikimania wiki. Anyway, I see that you've been discussing about this topic for a while now. Feel free to write me back when the global policy will be updated--Sakretsu (炸裂) 11:04, 19 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

A Community Wishlist Survey update waiting for translation


Hello! Would you be able to translate the newest update about the Community Wishlist Survey 2022? In short: instead of November 2021, the CWS will happen in January 2022. We would also like to make other improvements. We can't do that without having the volunteers' opinions. This is what we ask for in the message.

After the weekend, I'll send this to all Village Pumps, Cafes, Forums, etc. Our team would like as many people as possible not to ignore this message. Let's remove the language barrier.

Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) 01:29, 4 September 2021 (UTC)Reply

Warning! Importante! Richiesta blocco account per motivi di sicurezza


Salve steward 'Sakretsu', questo ('Vicarello') era il mio account temporaneo. Finalmente i miei due vecchi accounts ('igtstae' e 'unenèunme') sono stati definitivamente e globalmente bloccati a causa di compromissione accertata. Ho creato un nuovo account "ufficiale" (IgtstaNe). "Igtstane" ha una nuova password, non ha mail e ho provveduto a cambiare i blocchi dei miei dispositivi per maggiore sicurezza.

Le chiedo gentilmente di bloccare questo account ('Vicarello'), a causa di possibili vandalismi, DEFINITIVAMENTE e GLOBALMENTE, visto che la password è la stessa (non mi è possibile cambiarla) dei due accounts che utilizzavo prima e che sono stati violati. La ringrazio anticipatamente. Saluti.

Global lock of Gitz6666


Hello. I've been made aware that User:Gitz6666, who was active on the English Wikipedia, has been globally locked. I am unable to find public information about this lock, but they do not appear to have been blocked on the English Wikipedia (or any wiki other than the Italian Wikipedia) before they were locked. The lock reason ("violation of the UCoC, threatening and intimidating behaviour") seems a bit odd, as I can't find any evidence of this sort of behavior on Wikipedia. I've tried to ask some other Stewards off-wiki, and none of them seem to have a good explanation for why the lock was made.

Why was this lock made? Typically, we don't eject established editors from all wikimedia projects without a global ban discussion when they are still in good standing on a wiki on which they are active, and I don't think that they are eligible for a ban under the global ban policy. — Red-tailed hawk (nest) 02:04, 17 June 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Red-tailed hawk. User:Gitz6666 was locked in accordance with the UCoC and the Foundation's Terms of Use. Indeed, this lock has never been intended as a community global ban (see the criteria). If you are concerned that it has been made in error, please note that T&S and fellow stewards were already informed of the situation a few days ago Sakretsu (炸裂) 15:07, 17 June 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hello. I understand that you say that the account was locked because of UCUC/ToU, but it's not exactly clear what the lock was for. I can't find evidence of this sort of behavior on-wiki, and I don't see any evidence of cross-wiki abuse. Are you able to point me in a direction to get more information on this, or was this lock based solely on private information? — Red-tailed hawk (nest) 17:55, 17 June 2023 (UTC)Reply

I've recently read a recent article in The Signpost, and it seems that there was public information that led to the lock. Is the Signpost article totally in error, or am I missing something big here? — Red-tailed hawk (nest) 01:29, 21 June 2023 (UTC)Reply
@Red-tailed hawk the press article that you linked doesn't explain why the lock was made, which is what you asked me Sakretsu (炸裂) 18:44, 25 June 2023 (UTC)Reply

Lock request


Hi, you locked User:Zulfikarsamiaaddrian on September 24. I just blocked User:Zulfikar1973 on as an obvious sock. Can you please lock the new account? There's cross-wiki abuse on this one as well. Thanks. Bbb23 (talk) 16:49, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

Dear Sir
As the page showed Orphaned after approval, I attempted to enhance it. As I do not know why the KAGOZ page was deleted, I also do not know why my user was blocked. Please return the page as I did not comprehend it.
I would request from my soul that the page can be live again and unblocked me . If any misuse, that must be mistakenly used by someone from my PC
Looking forward to your kind replies
With regard

Hi @WikiBayer :-) I noticed you listed a few socks (e.g. User:AwareSize55) that have been confirmed to User:LouLou2000. The investigation was conducted on Wikidata by @Sotiale, so maybe they are interested in reviewing this case as well. If LouLou2000 is a sock of MisterEstherIsland2000, all of their socks should be locked too. Sakretsu (炸裂) 11:16, 24 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hello Sakretsu, We are conducting a poll of global renamers and stewards regarding some future toolings related to some rename requests. Your feedback is requested at the poll on VRT WIKI. Best regards, — xaosflux Talk 00:18, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hello, dear Sakretsu! How are you? I would like to draw your attention to the request for comment that I made in July, 2023. As the situation has deteriorated since then towards the open vote fraud by the bureaucrat, a timely consensus on the part of stewards has become even more essential for the implemention of rules in Belarusian Classical Wikipedia.
