Hi Wikitanvir , thanks for volunteering for WCI wikioutreach. This is a great help. Please do post me if we can do somemore good ideas as runup event for WCI. -- Naveenpf 01:55, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your help with board election translationsEdit

For your help with board election translations.

Hi! As member of this year's board election committe I would like to give you this barnstar for your help with the translations of the board election pages into Bengali. It was very much appreciated! Jon Harald Søby 13:12, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

National Library of KoreaEdit

I found you deleted National Library of Korea. I'm sorry I had to explain in English about the article. A Korean Wikipedia community is discussing how to collaborate with the national library of Korea. It is a wikimedia project related page. Would you undelete please? We need that.--Ryuch 06:03, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Restored. Please explain a bit in English on that page. Thanks! — Tanvir | Talk ] 06:17, 23 September 2011 (UTC)


I made a mistake with one of them (accidentally struck the wrong vote), but other than that the two removals were good. Unless there is something I am missing... Ajraddatz (Talk) 14:55, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

This user definitely isn't, as he doesn't have 50 edits globally within the time period. Ajraddatz (Talk) 14:56, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Also, didn't see the other one because they didn't have a global account (obviously didn't look far enough). Thanks for fixing that. Ajraddatz (Talk) 14:57, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

An awake global sysopEdit

Can you please speedy delete b:sv:Hora? -- Lavallen 16:10, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Sure I can and I just did. Additionally you can also make your request (in case you don't know the procedure yet) here to get help from other global sysops or stewards. Thanks! — Tanvir | Talk ] 16:15, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! I was looking for that page when I every time ended up in some local project-page with the same purpose. -- Lavallen 16:19, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Good luck...Edit


Based on the results of the vote, according to the percentage obtained, ensure that you have been elected as a steward. Hopefully you can carry out the mandate of the international community with the wise and prudent.

Personally I am very pleased and proud with the results you achieve. Let us work to advance the Wikimedia Foundation. Regards. Wagino 20100516 00:59, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Hey Tanvir, I wanted to be the first to officially congratulate you on winning the steward election, after actually winning it. So, go forth my friend, and be a wise and responsible steward. Try and uphold the best values you can. Best wishes. Theo10011 01:06, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Bot blocked in no.WikipediaEdit


I blocked your bot and Béria's bot for two hours. I was removing some wrong interwikis from the article no:Liste over ramsarområder i Norge with my bot, but before my bot was done editing, your bot and Béria's bot kept re-adding them to the same pages. I reverted countless times (see here for an example), but every time I was done reverting in all languages, one of your bots had added the links again.

I don't know what mode you're operating the bot in, but you should have a time buffer before the bot adds links. I think a limit should be one hour between something is removed before it is added again – I was using my bot to remove those links, with 1 second throttle, but that still was not fast enough, so imagine someone trying to do that by hand.

I don't know if a time buffer is part of the Pywikipedia code, but I will post to the mailing list to require about it. Jon Harald Søby 04:12, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Mailing the list for this feature is a good idea. Time buffer is not a part of Pywiki if I remember correctly. But there is a solution rather than blocking bots! You could use {{nobots}} for 2 hours. :P ‍‍‍‍Investigating the problem.. — Tanvir | Talk ] 04:41, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I've done that now, let's hope it helps. The really annoying thing is that several times all interwikis were correct (at the same time), so there was nothing tying these articles together. It seems like the bots were working from what was removed instead of what was there. Which is really fornicating annoying when you intentionally remove something. Jon Harald Søby 04:49, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
I agree that it is very annoying. Well, machine comes with both helps and trouble. :P But I am afraid, something you did which is not going to help. You removed the nowiki link from all article, that's okay. But you kept only the svwiki link on the dewiki article, but you see as the both of sv and dewiki links are on the other wiki pages, one way or another any of the bots are going to push all the links left, to that dewiki article (when someone remove the {{nobots}} tag. :S — Tanvir | Talk ] 04:56, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
No, what I did was remove de,no,sv from all articles, and leave no with no links to other articles, and de,sv with links to each other but nothing else (because those two are about the same subject, no is about a different subject, and all other are about the same subject). So even though those two were linking to each other, there was nothing linking either of them to anything else, and nothing linking to no at all. Jon Harald Søby 05:00, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Orwellian erasing of SubmissionsEdit

You have deleted rejected submissions [1], and cited G4, there is nothing in G4 tht justifies the deletion. The rejected submissions are an important historical record of the conference. Why this Orwellian erasing of records? Yogesh Khandke 03:13, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

I have deleted these submissions with the consent of the WCI organizers and other Meta-Wiki sysops. Organizers and people related to the submission process said they won't be needing those anymore. See Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat#WCI submission pages for relative discussions. Although most of them are junk, but I agree few can be kept. As I see your submission is worth keeping therefore I restored it. :-) — Tanvir | Talk ] 06:18, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Can you lock this one too please (from CU) thanks --Herby talk thyme 12:53, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

I deleted the banner. We need two banners: stew-2012noms and stew-2012vote as in the past years so the CSS style and the scripts inside do work properly. I'll create the nomination banners in some minutes. Thanks. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 21:30, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Also I think we should announce our intention to use the CentralNotice to avoid problems (and we have some of those each year). Best. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 21:33, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but did you only delete the banner? I see you have deleted the entire campaign! I don't seem to find that campaign now. — Tanvir | Talk ] 05:04, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
You're right & it's recreated and banner assigned. Creating the vote banner and assigning it to the campaign as well. Thanks. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 13:30, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

কয়েকটি নিয়ম সংশ্লিষ্ট পাতার উৎস দরকারEdit

তানভির ভাই, বাংলা উইকিপিডিয়ার কয়েকটি নিয়ম সংশ্লিষ্ট পাতার কিংবা লেখনির উৎস আমার দরকার। দরকার এজন্য যে, আমি সেখানকার ছোট ছোট বানান ভুল ও এ্যাপ্রোচগুলো সংশোধন করতে চাই। আশা করি আমার এজাতীয় এডিট বিশ্বাসযোগ্য এবং আমি সেগুলো এডিট করার সুযোগ পাবো:

  1. নতুন নিবন্ধ শুরু করতে গেলে উপরে যে লেখাটি বা নির্দেশনাটি দেখা যায়, ওটা।
  2. প্রতিটা পাতার এডিট মোডের নিচে লাগানো "যে উপাদান কপিরাইট বিলঙ্ঘন করবে তা অপসারণ করা হবে। বিশ্বকোষীয় উপাদান..." লেখাটি কোথায় আছে? এবং একেবারে নিচে "অনুগ্রহপূর্বক খেয়াল করুন" অংশটিও দরকার।

আপাতত এ দুটো, বাকিগুলো কাজ করতে থাকলে আবার চেয়ে নিবোক্ষণ, ইনশাল্লাহ।
আরেকটা জিনিস আমার দরকার, সেদিন মিটআপে নিয়ে আসা প্রাজিপ্র'র PDF ফরমেটটা দয়া করে আমাকে মেইল করবেন। একজন সম্ভাব্য উইকিপিডিয়ানকে এ্যাপ্রোচ করবো ওটা দিয়ে। ভালো থাকুন। —Mayeenul Islam (TALK) 17:49, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Translations, links and explanations, who shall vote and who shall not?Edit

Hei Wikitanvir, why do you think a link to the meaning of "Wikimedia Foundation" is not needed? That's not explained in Stewards/Elections 2012, where I think the only link in the central message will link to. I also don't find a page with an explanation of what a "steward" is and does – not in German. Perhaps a link to de:Wikipedia:Steward would be good, too. A de:wikt:Steward is something completely different than the meaning for "steward" here. Normally you use it in German language with the meaning „Betreuer von Gästen, vor allem in Flugzeugen und auf Schiffen“ which is the 2nd and 3rd meaning in wikt:steward. I think most of the people who see the CentralNotice don't know what "Steward" in Wikimedian language means and I also think it needs a long time of editing to understand what the term "steward" means. That's not what you learn within the first 600 edits. Perhaps it would be more likely to get people to vote if they understand on first sight what the election is about. Why should they vote if they don't even understand the central notice with 2 not explained and unclear words in it? But maybe it's better that only those persons vote who know yet what the whole thing is about? I don't know. Not so easy. And who sees the central notice? Will it also be shown to IP users (or other users) who even may not vote? Greetings --Geitost diskusjon 15:22, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Will the central notice also be shown to anon users or is there a possibility that only logged-in users see that message? (I don't know how it has been in the past.) Personally, I think it would be best if this message would only be shown on the watch lists, so that not every anon user also sees it. We've done it this way with the arbcom and cu elections on German WP. --Geitost diskusjon 15:59, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Hello, I published your changes. But there is no need as the central notice will be visible only to eligible users, that means only to stewards will see those notices. And most likely they all know what Wikimedia steward is. Thanks! — Tanvir | Talk ] 16:10, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Ah ok, then it's not as I thought. (I had in mind that I've seen this notice in previous elections. Strange.) So it's live now and I just don't see it. But most of the admins should also be eligible (except almost inactive ones), so they have to see the notice also, haven't they? (They should also know enough about stewards and Wikimedia.) ;-) --Geitost diskusjon 16:30, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes, you are right. In previous years it was visible to all users, that's why we received a lot of nominations from ineligible users. To prevent those unwanted nominations we modified our central notice to be visible only to eligible users. Assuming admins in projects are eligible, we didn't put edit limit there, but vote central notice (you will see when the voting starts) checks edit limits and that will be visible only to eligible users. — Tanvir | Talk ] 07:11, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining. In German Wikipedia, several admins may not even vote in admin elections and „Meinungsbildern“ cause they don't have 50 edits in the German article namespace within one year. So there will also be a few who may not vote here where 50 edits within half a year are needed (all SUL accounts together), and there also are many who don't have a SUL-account at all, and if they have an account here, I don't know. But never mind, I don't think there will be as many nominations from ineligible users as in the past. But we'll see. ;-) Surely, it's better this way. --Geitost diskusjon 21:03, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
One more question: Do previous admins in projects also see this central notice? They would also be eligible as candidates if they are active enough and have a SUL and a Meta account, and there are quite a lot of those previous, eligible admins. --Geitost diskusjon 21:23, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

Hi! I just want to thank you and give you this barnstar for your help with the translation of the 2011 fundraiser! The fundraiser was the best we ever had, both in terms of the amount we collected and in terms of number of translations. We couldn't have done either one without the help we got from you and other translators. If you are interested, we made a report, which has some statistics about the translations.

And: I have one more request, and that is that you take this survey. You may have got an e-mail about it, and if you did, please ignore this. But if you didn't it would be great if you would take this survey too, so we can learn to improve the translation experience.

Again, thanks for your help with translations – you're awesome! Jon Harald Søby (WMF) 14:33, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Wikitanvir. I need your help. I can't run my bot (or even my admin account) with "" on Arabic Wikipedia, although i type the following in my "":

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*- #
family = 'wikipedia'
mylang = 'ar'

usernames['wikipedia']['ar'] = u'GedawyBot'
sysopnames['wikipedia']['ar'] = 'محمد الجداوي'

I always find an error message. Can you please tell me what's wrong? Note: I have the same problem with " broken -api".--M.Gedawy Talk 14:48, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

I don't know, but I think username and sysop name should be the same, my configuration is like:
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*- #
family = 'wikipedia'
mylang = 'bn'

usernames['wikipedia']['bn'] = 'Wikitanvir'
sysopnames['wikipedia']['bn'] = 'Wikitanvir'

But I don't use the "u" at first, I mean, "['ar'] = u'GedawyBot'" should be "['ar'] = 'GedawyBot'". Sorry I am no tech guy, I just told you how I deal with it. Hope that helps. — Tanvir | Talk ] 05:26, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Broken Central Notice for Steward Elections (de-WP)Edit

Hi, in de-WP, there’s a Central Notice regarding Steward Elections. Unfortunately, there’s a broken link: ''[[:m:de:Wikimedia|Wikimedia Foundation]]'' doesn’t work (= it’s seen there in exact this way). Could you please fix it (the latest revision is from you, hence I ask you)? Regards --Schniggendiller 00:26, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you! Bye --Schniggendiller 00:48, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Fixed. — Tanvir | Talk ] 00:59, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
It’s me again. This revision worked well, but the latest revision is again broken (''[[:m:Wikimedia Foundation|Wikimedia Foundation]]''). Perhaps it’s because of the first colon? I presume, that ''[[m:Wikimedia Foundation|Wikimedia Foundation]]'' in a central notice could not create an interlanguage link. I don’t know, but I should take some hours of sleep now ... Regards --Schniggendiller 01:18, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
The link is still broken, see de:Wikipedia:Administratoren/Anfragen#CentralNotice_Stewardwahlen. -- 08:17, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I removed the link. It will be plain text. Interwiki links seem having problem with central notice. Thanks for informing, and sorry for your problem. — Tanvir | Talk ] 08:38, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
That’s odd: Before I left to work early at the morning, I had 8 seconds left, so I checked it again and it seemed to work (with link). At work I can’t see any Central Notices (because of JavaScript-Blocking?), now I’m surprised to read (here and at german sysops board) that some people still have had problems with it. Was I wrong with what I imagined to see very early in the morning or was it a cache problem, browser problem, ...? Whatever, now it works. Thank you very much. bye --Schniggendiller 17:13, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Please familiarize yourself with all applicable policies and do not act or make proposals contrary to them. Thanks. Seb az86556 (talk) 07:04, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Excuse me, but what are you referring to? — Tanvir | Talk ] 07:43, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
This is against policy. read it. Regular users can make such mistakes, stewards must know better. Seb az86556 (talk) 18:06, 9 March 2012 (UTC)


Hi, Thanks for the advice. I made a mistake and take charge of it. Earlier, I apologized in IRC, however as it's difficult to remember if you were there, I need to apologize to you now, a true sorry. --Luckas msg 16:08, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Any time :)Edit

It seems to be a trend this month. if you keep up the good work, you may have to semipro your userpage... or we need better countervandal mechanisms and detection. SJ talk   08:04, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

A gentle reminder for Wikipatrika templateEdit

Dear Tanvir, As per our conversation earlier, this is to remind you about setting up the new template for Wikipatrika that we hope to bring out by the end of April. I was about to leave you a message on the chapter Wiki talkpage but I realized this might reach you faster. Do let me know how we can take this forward. Thanks! :) Noopur28 (talk) 09:03, 3 April 2012 (UTC)


I am an administrator on Odia (or) Wikipedia. But Admins are not granted "Special:Import" rights or its a bug I do not know. Its been several months I have repoted a bug at bugzilla here. Can you please look into it. And If it is a bug, can't be resolved soon, can I get Import rights on please. If you are replying late, whisper me back on my talk page please. Thank You in advance :-) -- ɑηsuмaη ʈ ᶏ ɭ Ϟ 13:49, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

My username changeEdit

Dear Wikitanvir, I've applied to change my name in the Meta-wiki but in many projects it is not done yet. Could you please help me in some wikies where you can change usernames? With Best Regards. --Ganesh Paudel (talk) 10:36, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Congrats and welcome!Edit

I just saw the announcement that you're a new WMF Fellow. Welcome and congratulations! Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 12:23, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Hello Wikitanvir,

Sorry for asking this, it may seem stupid but my account was blocked because of a vandalizing IP ( This is not the first time I have this kind of problem : I think a spambot is using the same IP adresses as me (or more probably the same range), but only from time to time so I couldn't fix this problem. Could you just make unblock my account (not the IP) so that I could contribute normally ? Thanks Nebogipfel (talk) 16:54, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I'm an autoconfirmed user. I can not edit because the IP is blocked. Is possible to solve this problem? Thanks. Ferbr1 (talk) 08:00, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Sure. You can ask for a global IP block exemption. :-) — T. 14:13, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

That's ok? Ferbr1 (talk) 20:08, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Sure, just taken care-off that request. Let me know if you have further problem. :-) — T. 02:29, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! Ferbr1 (talk) 11:14, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi, my IP address has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Wikitanvir ( The reason given is Open proxy. Is possible to solve this problem? Thanks Sanjay Balotiya (talk) 08:15, 8 July 2012 (UTC)Sanjay Balotiya

Your edit on Tamil WikipediaEdit

I have rollbacked the change you made here. User:Hisham might need to WP:USURP and claim his ID across wikis should he want to you use the account. Cheers. Logicwiki (talk) 08:37, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for reverting that. I contacted the person who made the request. I hope he will take that to involved user. Thanks for notifying me and I am going to revert my edits in those non-unified wikis. :-) — T. 10:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Your edits on English WikiquoteEdit

Hi Wikitanvir. You have new mail at your en.wikiquote talk page. ~ Ningauble (talk) 14:52, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

== Changing username=%253D

Sorry, I do not understand what you wanted to say. Could you please clarify a bit more? — T. 05:30, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
Of course! :) I want to change my username. But I want to change it as global. (My english is not very good. Sorry!) Emperyan-message/ileti-WMTR 16:08, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
@Tanvir, see User talk:Quentinv57#Changing username for his question. Trijnsteltalk 15:00, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks for reminding me Trijnstel, I replied there! — T. 15:05, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Username changesEdit

Hello. I made a request for changing username for me and for my bot. I know that's too much, but I want you to approve some of them please. Thanks.--Avocato (talk) 16:20, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Why you removed the steward access of Magister Mathematicae without his indication in Stewards requests?. Xt103 (talk) 19:03, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

Not all self-requested rights removals need to be listed on-wiki. Magister requested his removal in a proper place which has been documented and verified, and also had legitimate reasons. So I removed his rights based on that. Just a note, other stewards are acknowledged about the details of this. Thanks! — T. 02:42, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
