Welcome to Meta!Edit

Hello Uğurkent, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing!

Thank you for your help!Edit

Hello Uğurkent. This is to inform you that I have closed your RfTA as not promoted. Please refer to the rationale of the closure. Thank you for your interest and work on Meta-Wiki. With my best regards. — M 15:52, 01 December 2014 (UTC)

Search for Global RenamersEdit

Hi, sorry in advance if I am bothering you. I just want to inform you about a possibilty here on meta. After the SUL finalization there is a search for additional Global_renamers (GR). You should know, since you translated some of the related pages here on meta.

As I did with other users with knowledge of less "common" languages, I am contacting you because at the moment in Global_renamers#Users_with_global_rename_access and Stewards#List_of_current_stewards, if I correctly remember, noone is tr>3. Mardetanha is tr-2, but (s)he is not very active as a GR. More than 65 millions people speak Turkish, and I don't expect some seniors to know other languages such as English very well, so there is a gap IMHO.

Now, you have a robust cross-wiki activity and you are a sysop on different projects, and you deal with user-related issues even as a OTRS member. If you want to be more involved in the GR tasks in the future, please feel free to apply. We have accepted in the past months candidates with much lower cross-wiki activity or language skills than you, so you probably have good chances. Some of them were en-1 and you are en-2. You also were a local bureaucrat on tr.wikimedia.

Please notice that I am not an expert user on meta nor a local bureaucrat or sysop, I just care about the "variety" of the meta environment and I though that it was useful to inform some users of the opportunity. If you know yourself some profile who might be interested, please let him/her know about this "opportunity".

If you think you won't be very active in the next months or you are simply not interested, no problem. In case you want to apply, I suggest you to translate also the page Global_rename_policy into Turkish.--Alexmar983 (talk) 20:21, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Alexmar983. I try to help as best I can. --Uğurkenttalk 18:44, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Glad to hear. Please cinsider thar even renaming few names per month would be better than many other GRs, so don't hesitate to apply.--Alexmar983 (talk) 19:46, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Reminder: Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 31 DecemberEdit

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

I wanted to follow-up on an message I sent you in September regarding the need for you to sign a confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 in order to maintain your access from Wikimedia to nonpublic information, and specifically to the OTRS system.

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are transitioning to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that anyone with access to nonpublic information sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this message because you have access to nonpublic information by way of the OTRS system and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your access to nonpublic information. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

If you wish to stop receiving these notices, you may remove yourself from this list. Please note that doing so will not prevent you from losing OTRS rights and access after the 31 December 2015 deadline.

Thank you,

Edit-a-thon in Ankara next weekEdit

Hi Uğurkent, I'm a Finnish Wikipedian and GLAM-wiki person. I have contacts to the Finnish Embassy in Ankara and I wish to help them get in contact with local Wikimedians. The embassy is organizing an edit-a-thon related to International Women's Day on Mon 7 March together with some local partners. They would be glad to have experienced Wikipedians take part in their event. I was wondering if you or someone you know would be a person to talk to. Best, --Sanahirviö (talk) 19:48, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

Your email to me on 2017-10-07Edit

Hello, Uğurkent:

The content of the email you've sent to me has made me feel awkward and unconfortable to say the least. You can't just go around emailing people and ordering them to answer questions (32 in my case) about themselves and their relatives for some kind of homework or personal project.That's wholy unnaceptable, a misuse of the EmailUser function and some might also feel concerned about it. I won't be answering your questions. And this is also a formal request that you do not send me any email for such activities outside my remit as Wikimedia volunteer. The Wikimedia Foundation has been forwarded the content of the email you've sent to me should they want to do anything with it. I am, frankly, dissapointed about this. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:48, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Hello, Marco. Yes, it happened with instant excitement. My project was an emergency for this week. I just had to talk to someone and it was wrong. I guess I would feel uncomfortable if the same thing happened to me. I apologize on behalf my person for making a mistake. If there is a penal, I am willing pay it. I would not want a bad synergy between us. --Uğurkenttalk 22:01, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Spam fighting on wikiEdit

Thanks for the work you are doing fighting spam. As for spam on dk.wikimedia.org, I see there are global sysop actions, but wondering whether there are other means, e.g., configurations, that can help us? — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 20:56, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

@Fnielsen: You're welcome. Yes, global sysops and stewards helped for the pages and spamming users that I marked. I noticed these pages immediately with the SWViewer tool. Maybe you can prevent these pages for opening with the abuse filter on dk.wikimedia.org. [1] --Uncitoyentalk 21:38, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!Edit

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | 한국어 | Nederlands | português | русский | العربية | edit

Congratulations, Uncitoyen! You now have the rights of an administrator on Meta-Wiki. Please take a moment to read the Meta:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, and Meta:Requests for deletion, but also Talk:Spam blacklist and Talk:Interwiki map), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-adminconnect. You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading although it doesn't always completely apply here at Meta. Please also check or add your entry to Meta:Administrators#List of administrators and the Template:List of administrators. You're also allowed to subscribe the metawiki admins private mailing list. Again, congratulations and welcome to the team. --MF-W 22:54, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Category:Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations/bnEdit

How's Category:Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations/bn test? Category has valid translated pages or am I missing something? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:53, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello @1997kB: Although translation pages appear in the category, it included Special:MyLanguage as content in page. While I'm translating, I don't create such categories manually. If I remember correctly, I create it with the translation tool. Also translation pages in this category appear automatically without created. I think these categories are called translation categories. Meta:Categories#Languages. When editing these categories, the phrase "translate" appears. But I can't see this category as marked for translation in any languages. For these reasons, I thought the user opened it for testing. If there is wrong, I can undelete. --Uncitoyentalk 10:30, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
Ah! got you. No, no need to undelete, I thought we create them manually, so. Anyways thanks for explaination. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:37, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks @1997kB: :) I might be little bit wrong, but I'm more sure that's true. As I said, if there is something wrong, it will be good to fix it. --Uncitoyentalk 14:14, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

per email re vanity spammerEdit

I have updated the filter. I don't think that we need to be quiet about it and can conduct that business onwiki. Personally, I think that onwiki discussion is more alerting to the broader community, and there is nothing that we are trying to hide.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:48, 22 August 2021 (UTC)

SurprisedEdit

I was surprised to see your request for speedy deletion of a fellow admins user page, especially without any conversation with that admin. I have declined it as I think that such deletion requests would be better explained, so would request that if you wish to progress that you do it in consultation with the user, or through a DR. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:15, 30 August 2021 (UTC)

Normally, I wanted to look at CentralAuth of CptViraj. When using scripts, I can press the wrong link because their location changes for no reason sometimes. @CptViraj: I'm sorry for this. @Billinghurst: Thank you for your undo and your message. Regards. --Uncitoyentalk 06:19, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
Sounds as you are just as surprised as me. That makes sense, I am guilty of that one too, especially with page rewrites for scripts that I have added through my js files. Multi-tasking!  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:34, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
No problem. @Billinghurst: Thanks. -- CptViraj (talk) 14:01, 31 August 2021 (UTC)

Admin activity review/Local inactivity policiesEdit

Hey there! I saw your name at the edit history of the aforementioned page. Can you help me with some information? I'm a crat at SqWiki and I was thinking to open a discussion with my community about setting some local limits in regard to our crats and admins. That's because we have a lot of admins (and maybe even crats) but very few of them are ever active past doing 1 change per year just so they're inside the general 2 year limit. My proposal is that the limit is changed from 2 years to 6 months or maybe 1 year and for the number of edits to be raised from 1 edit to... something more substantial. And if they hit their limit, they are removed from stewards. This is of course something we'll have to decide as a community. But I'm not sure if we can make such a decision. Assuming we had a discussion and we agreed to that, would there be needed anything else? What would be our next step if agreement was reached? Do we just put our name into that list with our rules and they're guaranteed to be taken into consideration by stewards? (The stewards are the ones who do the removal, right? It's not automatic?) I'd be happy with any kind of information you can provide. :) - Klein Muçi (talk) 00:19, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

Hi @Klein Muçi: Each wiki project can set its own inactivity rules. After accept this, if the bureaucrats don't have the rights to remove the admin rights, after the local review processes are made and the request is made to the stewards, then inactive admins are removed by the stewards. If you accept your local policy, it is important that you review the activity for admins several times in a year. But I can't see very active admins in Albanian Wikipedia in this year. It looks like you only have a few very active admins. Making a local policy can be an extra dificult for you. If you do your own inactivity review for 6 months, half of your current admins may need to be removed. Therefore, I think that the local community should have the ability to run this process and decide on it by consensus. If you accept your own rule, it might be good to say the stewards on the notice board. I say these according to the general processes in activity process. You can look the information pages for more information and ask the stewards and other knowledgeable users if necessary. --Uncitoyentalk 16:38, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
@Uncitoyen, thanks a lot for the reply! Yes, you are very correct in everything that you say. Actually that's part of the reason why I've thought about changing the criteria lately. We are starting to have a lot of inactive admins. These confuses newcomers who can't understand why things take forever to be done even though there are a lot of admins, usually forces them to write the same request to different admins many times until they find one who's active/responsive, create security and privilege issues in regard to their accounts, given that they may not care that much anymore about "the wiki standards" and lastly (and most importantly), makes bureaucrats shut down most of new RFAs with the rationale "we currently have A LOT of admins" (because de jure they do).
For all these reasons, my idea was to make the process a bit more dynamic in nature. Make it a bit easier to become an admin or a crat and easier to lose that status if interests change over time. If you check the contributions of each admin and crat at our project you'll see that most of them have years without doing any edits. They just do 1-2 edits every 2 years to postpone the deadline and that's it. So that's why I wanted to change that, make it a bit harder to game the system. But my initial idea was that this thing was automatic. So, I thought that if inactivity criteria was met, they'd get auto-removed somehow. Then I understood that this job is done by stewards. And now, after reading your answer, I'm starting to think that maybe this will be enforced by local crats, stewards not having the right to act on that. If that's the case, we'd solve everything on our own, without having to agree for anything here. But my hope was for the process to be handled by unincluded parts, ideally automatically, not by the local crats because that may give rise to debates and accusations of power abuse. Am I to understand that something like what I'm describing is not possible because desyssoping will always be handled by local crats if they exist and not by stewards (or any automatic feature)? - Klein Muçi (talk) 23:51, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
