The Community Wishlist SurveyEdit


You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for volunteering!Edit

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)


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)

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)
@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)
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)
@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)

Statement textEdit

Hi, in your English statement text, I think you might want to replace "estimated" with "esteemed" or "[well-]established", depending on what you want to say. - Xbspiro (talk) 23:46, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Xbspiro: woops... yes, I meant to say "esteemed". Thanks for your message & translation, very much appreciated!--Sakretsu (炸裂) 00:54, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Aghny's here: I want to change my user name.Edit

I want to change my old user name to Aghny. 邬山 (talk) 22:24, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Jianhui67: would you please take care of this request? Looks fine to me (Special:CentralAuth/邬山), but I would still like to have another renamer who knows both English and Chinese handle it. It also seems that their talk page on has been moved around and should be restored before their rename. Thanks in advance--Sakretsu (炸裂) 23:31, 15 February 2020 (UTC)
Hello, I have no objection to the rename, but they might want to head to m:SRUC or Special:GlobalRenameRequest instead. It is better to make a visible request. Jianhui67 talkcontribs 13:52, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
Sure, then @邬山: sorry for the late reply, please follow Jianhui67's instructions above.--Sakretsu (炸裂) 14:43, 18 February 2020 (UTC)


Congrats to being elected. I hope you will bring the userid instead of abusive username (my SE question) idea to the stewards list and discuss, that is indeed a very good idea. Thanks for volunteering.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:10, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

title blacklist changesEdit

I don't think that these edits are particularly useful, and I am not certain that you fully understand mw:extension:TitleBlacklist and mw:Extension:AntiSpoof. Please seek advice from your fellow stewards.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:19, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: hey :-) Well, hopefully the edits I am making will be as useful as this one, I guess. It's better than nothing, at least for the moment. About the antispoof attribute, I had never used it before, and certainly it would've been great to have a proper documentation at hand. Yesterday, I tried to get some tips from other stewards, but with no luck. However, this morning User:Daimona Eaytoy was kind enough to take a look at the extension for me and find out what it actually does beyond my expectations. I think I am good now, thanks. By the way, I can get in touch with you on IRC if you like. There are several regex which don't work and need to be fixed, including some of yours (e.g. 1, 2)--Sakretsu (炸裂) 21:49, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Css Removal of controls from MediaWiki without community consensus .Edit

(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)

@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)

Ciao, scusami nuovamente il disturbo. Su ho notato che quando viene a mancare una traduzione in lingua veneta sia da translatewiki e sia da wikidata (quindi suppongo sia una cosa globale) appare automaticamente il testo in lingua italiana. Sarebbe possibile lasciare l'inglese come lingua di fondo nel caso ove venisse a mancare la traduzione veneta? Attendo risposta e grazie anticipatamente. --Fierodelveneto (talk) 09:07, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

@Fierodelveneto: ciao, stesso discorso degli altri cambiamenti di configurazione. Serve una discussione su per rimuovere $fallback = 'it'; da MessagesVec.php e poi bisogna attendere che qualcuno prima o poi prenda in carico la richiesta su Phabricator--Sakretsu (炸裂) 11:03, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
Ma per quale motivo servirebbe una discussione? Non sarebbe mai dovuto essere messo in realtà... Ad ogni modo, apro una discussione ed entro pochi giorni te la porto. Grazie di cuore per la disponibilità. --Fierodelveneto (talk) 11:04, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
@Fierodelveneto: tutti i cambiamenti di configurazione richiedono una discussione da parte della comunità del progetto. L'italiano sarà stato impostato come lingua di ripiego sul presupposto che a molti risulti più comprensibile dell'inglese, ma comunque a voi la decisione--Sakretsu (炸裂) 11:11, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
Non hanno tenuto in considerazione il fatto che vi sono 2milioni di Veneti-Brasiliani, che parlano la nostra stessa lingua.. e per loro l'italiano non è più comprensibile dell'Inglese.

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)
