Encore des abus d'administrationEdit
Cher Yann, j'ai rédigé une requête pour commentaires à propòs de graves abus d'administration à wikipedia en Lombard: les utilisatuers lmo:user:Fabexplosive et lmo:user:Nick1915 ont bloque 18 comptes d'utilisateurs, en les calomniant d'être sockpuppets. C'est grave, parce que il s'agit d'utilisateurs qui avaient voté contre une proposition de règlement. Je te prie de bien vouloir agir contre ce "vandalisme d'administration". Si l'on ne respecte pas les votations, à quoi servent-elles? De plus, cette attitude rend vaine la dimension collaborative de wikipedia. Je te prie de bien vouloir ne pas sousestimer la gravité de la situation. Enfin, je te prie de considérer aussi que l'un de ces utilisateur a voté pour fermer wikipedia en Lombard: Proposals_for_closing_projects/Closure_of_Lombard_Wikipedia. On peut donc soupçonner que ce comportement ne soit pas bona fide. Merci bien, --10caart 07:35, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
Bonjour, voici une précision: la votation avait réporté le résultat de 26 contraires et 8 à faveur. Mainténant les utilisateurs ci-dessus voudraient dire que la proposition de règlement, que a été rejectée 26 à 8, aurait au contraire approuvée. Cela s'appèlle, de façon claire: "duperie". Merci bien, --10caart 07:52, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
please send your real-name, your wikiname, your Freenode-nick (if you have one), your prefered login-name and the public part of your ssh-key to . We plan to create your account soon then. --DaB. 19:14, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
Demande de changement de statut pour mg.wiktionaryEdit
Je suis Jagwar venant de la wiktionary malgache, je suis venu vous faire cette demande de statut d'admin, car l'unique sysop de mg.wiktionary semble avoir jeté l'éponge.
En effet, depuis 6 mois, ni sur la mg.WP ni sur mg.Wikt Hery n'a été actif
Le problème, c'est que c'est le seul utilisateur à pouvoir changer les edittools de MediaWiki.
En effet, j'ai demandé à un sysop de fr.wikt mais il ne pouvait le faire et m'a donc proposé de vous contacter pour demander un changement de statut.
Merci d'avance, Amicalement,
Jagwar 16:37, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Wikinews.fr, que peut-on faire ?Edit
Vous avez répondu le 7 décembre dernier à une demande de CU émanant de Bertrand Grondin à mon sujet.
J'aimerais beaucoup que vous puissiez vérifier, en consultant les liens fournis par Bertrand Grondin lui-même (User : Trevras@fr.wn - for these constributions by attacking wikinews users integrity, trolls, insults), que l'affirmation selon laquelle je me livrais à des insultes envers les contributeurs de Wikinews est parfaitement fausse (ce serait même plutôt le contraire !).
Vous pourrez aussi, à cette occasion, constater que mon exclusion de Wikinews a été tout à fait brutale et très mal justifiée (voir par exemple le décompte des votes sur mon blocage), et qu'elle dénote un état d'esprit à mon avis diamétralement opposé aux préconisations de la Wikimedia Foundation. (Peut-être pourriez-vous vérifier, ce faisant, que le texte explicitant mon exclusion sur “ma” page de discussion est inexact : il m'est impossible, sans utiliser un faux-nez, d'écrire sur cette page et d'effectuer un recours, mes droits d'écriture ayant été complètement supprimés.)
En consultant cette page de discussion d'un article de l'édition du 19 janvier, vous pourrez de plus constater que Bertrand Grondin, comme il aime le répéter, persiste et signe : il a bloqué un lecteur qui tentait, maladroitement sans doute, de s'opposer à son traitement outrageusement partisan de l'actualité russo-géorgienne.
C'est d'ailleurs, au-delà de mon cas personnel, ce qui m'amène à venir vous ennuyer : tant que les gestionnaires de Wikinews se contentent de nuire à leur propre projet, c'est dommage, mais je me fais une raison. La propagande à laquelle ce média se livre sous couvert de neutralité me paraît en revanche extrêmement répréhensible. Ne peut-on rien faire contre cette dérive ? Quelle instance serait selon vous compétente pour débattre et statuer sur cette question ?
Je voudrais pour terminer souligner que la page d'accueil de Wikipédia.fr se fait l'écho des informations mises en avant par Wikinews, ce que je trouve pour le moins gênant.
D'avance, merci de votre réponse. Trevras 05:56, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
- J'ai bien reçu votre demande. Je vais étudier ce problème. Yann 11:07, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
- Merci. Et pour, peut-être, relancer votre intérêt, cette citation, extraite du fil « Déontologie » (qui avait mis le feu aux poudres) de la Salle café de Wikinews :
« J'ai fait quelques stats pendant l'été : au 3è trimestre, il y a eu 390 articles créés dont 140 venant de Rian (soit 36%), 33 de VOA (8%), 35 sur le foot (9%), 74 sur les autres sports (19%), 9 sur le droit français (2%), 32 sur la France (8%) et 67 sur le reste du monde (17%). La part de RIAN me semble trop importante. Sans polémiquer sur le contenu partisan et fumeux de certaines dépêches, elles devraient être moins nombreuses, même si la quantité des créations d'articles diminue. Leur fréquence fait sans doute fuir certains contributeurs potentiels. Un exemple de la propagande répétitive de cette agence : le paragraphe supprimé là qu'on a vu plusieurs jours de suite sur tous les articles sur le Caucase. - Seherr 1 décembre 2008 à 00:20 (UTC) »
- Ces statistiques ont donc été fournies par Seherr, administrateur de Wikinews en fonction à ce moment-là et qui a démissionné à la suite de cette affaire. Elles montrent la prépondérance écrasante des dépêches en provenance de RIA Novosti au moment où le conflit entre la Russie et la Géorgie atteignait son paroxysme. Je suis malheureusement incapable d'actualiser ces chiffres, mais une consultation épisodique de Wikinews semble indiquer que rien n'a changé depuis, ni dans le traitement de l'actualité, ni dans l'accueil réservé aux critiques... qui ne peuvent évidemment qu'être des « trolls » qui viennent « nuire au projet ». Bien à vous, Trevras 18:42, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
- Hi Yann, This is reg hindi wiki. As u r an admin there, & also connected with wikimedia, I thought that u may see the request better.
- I am thinking of a program segment, that senses the logged in status of a member, & places a green dot on online, red on busy, yellow on idle & grey on offline, just like orkut/google/G-talk, etc & many more. Can we have this fac, atleast for the sysops' status. If you can direct this issue to right hands, so nice of you. --आशीष भटनागर 10:53, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
- So nice of you replying me,
- But the things are quite different. As you might be aware about the Google, G-Talk & orkut, etc. The user holds an option to be invisible. That way, he appears to be grey (as if he is not online) while being very much online. Only when a user opts for Green status, the user is shown green. I think this suffice the solution for the privacy issue.--आशीष भटनागर 17:44, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm just wondering where your RFCU for meta is:
- (show/hide) 23:23, 11 November 2006 Yann (Talk | contribs | block) changed group membership for User:Yann@metawiki from Bureaucrats, Stewards and Administrators to Bureaucrats, Stewards, Administrators and CheckUsers
- That was in 2006! Yann 21:14, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
- That's why I ask. CU#Meta lists you as having it for log access. But we don't do that any more - if there's a valid RFCU then you just get bumped into the regular section. But I haven't been able to find one. — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 00:19, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
- I removed that. Yann 15:22, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?Edit
I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!
Here’s how to participate:
- Learn more about this consultation
- Vote on and submit new campaign topics in the AllOurIdeas Survey
- Discuss campaign topics and ask questions on the IdeaLab talk page
Future IdeaLab Campaigns resultsEdit
Last December, I invited you to help determine future ideaLab campaigns by submitting and voting on different possible topics. I'm happy to announce the results of your participation, and encourage you to review them and our next steps for implementing those campaigns this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered time to participate and submit ideas.
With great thanks,

Inspire Campaign on content curation & reviewEdit
I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.
All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:38, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
Open Call for Individual Engagement GrantsEdit
Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is accepting proposals until April 12th to fund new tools, research, outreach efforts, and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers. Whether you need a small or large amount of funds (up to $30,000 USD), IEGs can support you and your team’s project development time in addition to project expenses such as materials, travel, and rental space.
- Submit a grant request or draft your proposal in IdeaLab
- Get help with your proposal in an upcoming Hangout session
- Learn from examples of completed Individual Engagement Grants
Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.
Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,
Community Wishlist Survey votesEdit
Hi Yann, Thanks for participating in the Wishlist Survey! I'm sorry that this wasn't clear -- this is the proposals phase of the survey, when people are posting and discussing proposals. The voting phase starts in a couple weeks, on November 28th. We're not counting votes that are cast early, because the proposals can change during this phase, and you might end up voting for something that changes in a way that you didn't expect. I've added some text at the top of the page, explaining this better.
I don't want people to see your Support votes and get confused, so I'm going to change the Support template in your message to "Good idea". If that response doesn't work for you, then feel free to change it. Sorry again about the confusion -- I'm really glad that you're participating. I hope you keep coming back to discuss and improve proposals, and you'll have a chance to vote starting on Nov 28th. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 19:02, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
- Hello! I'd like to remind you again that the voting phase has not started yet. Your input on individual proposals is most welcome, but the issue is by adding the Support template others may be mislead that it is a !voting survey. Thanks for your understanding!

Dear Yann: I have read your grant proposal and found the idea of book scanning just great! Maybe this piece of information will help you: there is a professional book scanner in Zurich - in the library of UZH Deutsches Seminar (Schönberggasse 9, 8001 Zürich) - freely available for any library user. The machine is busy <20%, from my experience (scanned 10+ books already), and the scanning is absolutely free. I could provide the exact details of the model if needed... --Balabinrm (talk) 20:25, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
- Hi Balabinrm,
- Thanks for your message. Actually most university libraries have a scanner. I know 2 of them which have one in Geneva. And Zurich is a bit far for me. ;) So I dropped the idea to buy a scanner for now. However I am still interested in partnerships with GLAMs for scanning books. Best regards, Yann (talk) 16:32, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
Interviewing you about Structured Data on CommonsEdit
Firstly, I should introduce myself. I'm Jonathan Curiel with the Wikimedia Foundation, and I'm helping to work on WMF's Structured Data on Commons project. At Wikimania in Montreal, I'm interviewing Commons users about the project, and I'd like to interview you. I'd ask about implementing structured data into Commons, interacting with structured data, how best to involve the community, and other questions. Would you have 30 minutes at Wikimania? I'd try and accommodate any time you have available there.
Thanks so very much for your consideration. Appreciate any time you have. And I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
All my best,

Global preferences ready for testingEdit
I am contacting you because of your support for Global settings in the 2016 Community Tech Wishlist. Global preferences are now available for beta testing, and need your help before being released to the wikis.
- Read over the help page, it is brief and has screenshots
- Login or register an account on Beta English Wikipedia
- Visit Global Preferences and try enabling and disabling some settings
- Visit some other language and project test wikis such as English Wikivoyage, German Wiktionary, the Hebrew Wikipedia and test the settings
- Report your findings, experience, bugs, and other observations
Once the team has feedback on design issues, bugs, and other things that might need worked out, the problems will be addressed and global preferences will be sent to the wikis.

New community space for IdeaLab on ConnectEdit
Hi folks. If you're receiving this message, you've contributed to IdeaLab or an Inspire Campaign this year. Thanks for participating to develop ideas and review ones from other Wikimedians.
We are preparing some changes to IdeaLab and Inspire Campaigns. One of these changes is a new community space on Connect, where Wikimedians can find each other based on common activities or skills, and ask questions about the space. You are invited to join this community space for IdeaLab, especially if you would ever consider needing to find contributors with certain skills (like design or project management) or would like to offer your skills to others in our movement. To join, please proceed to Connect/IdeaLab and click on the "Add yourself" button on the right. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 19:53, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
Do you have an idea about how to measure the health of your community? Do you want to review ideas that others have submitted? Through August 10th, we are inviting ideas on how to capture the well-being of Wikimedia communities, in terms of matters like conflict resolution, effective content creation, and being able to contribute in a collaborative environment. Ideas can be focused on either quantitative techniques, such as gathering raw data, or qualitative techniques, like surveying contributors. If you are submitting an idea, guidance is available for how to move your idea into implementation, such as through a grant or starting a Phabricator task to engage with developers.
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)
Help with a projectEdit
I am initiating a project to record the name of my language in all the languages present in Wikipedia. First, I encourage you to create / improve the article on the Asturian language and, on the other hand, to help me in my project I would need a man and a woman to record how it is said in your language: Asturian . Thanks in advance. - Vsuarezp (talk) 20:41, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
The Affiliate-selected Board seats process welcomes your supportEdit
Hello. You are receiving this message because you are active in the field of translations <3 The movement needs you! The Nominations phase has started for the ongoing selection process of two Board members, and the timeline is quite tight.
A Translation Central is available to help translators figure out what's been covered and what's left to do. Over the course of the next few weeks, your attention on candidates' profiles is particularly welcome.
While there are four languages that are especially relevant for multiple affiliates (namely Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish), you can also add others. If you can't help: please see if you know anyone in your circle who could, and spread the word :) Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 13:20, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Invitation to affiliate members to complete a survey about WMF wide Universal Code of ConductEdit
Hello; My name is Mervat, and I am helping the Trust and Safety team to reach out to affiliates in order to discuss the Universal Code of Conduct.
There has been talks about the need for a global set of conduct rules in different communities over time, and finally, Wikimedia Foundation Board announced a Community Culture Statement, enacting new standards to address harassment and promote inclusivity across projects.Since the universal code of conduct that will be a binding minimum set of standards across all Wikimedia projects, will apply to all of us, staff and volunteers alike, all around the globe, and will impact our work as groups, individuals and projects, it’s of great importance that we all participate in expressing our opinions and thoughts about UCoC, its nature, what we think it should cover or include and what it shouldn’t include; how it may develop, drawback or help our groups. This is the time to talk about it. As you are a valuable contributor to the Wikimedia movement, your voice counts.
Before starting to draft the code of conduct, we would like to hear from you; We invite you to devote some minutes to take this survey; your answers will help us create a safer environment for all on Wikimedia: (English): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd36dNdU3C5shXEkKp9itJOhuCTx9hZE5AE-xflkxtfRMnZtg/viewform?usp=pp_url
It’s possible that you are a member of more than one affiliate; hence you may receive this survey more than once, and you may have participated previously in the discussions or filled out a previous survey during the first round of consultations about UCoC which targeted wikipedia/wikimedia communities. We apologize for this; it is really difficult to identify if a wikimedian belongs to multiple groups that work to spread free knowledge.
Looking forward to your thoughts and opinions and hoping that you can respond within the next 2 weeks. If you have any questions about the surveys or difficulties accessing the link, please contact me by email (email@example.com).
Results will be considered during the drafting process for the UCoC.
Thank you for your participation
Invitation to participate in Universal Code of Conduct survey - WikiWomen's User GroupEdit
(You are receiving this message as you signed your interest to participate as part of the WikiWomen's User Group)
Hello, my name is Mervat Salman, a UCoC Facilitator, Trust and Safety team.
As you know, the WMF Board of Trustees ratified the Universal Code of Conduct early in February. That's the beginning; the policy itself cannot be used if the enforcement pathways are not defined. The implementation and enforcement of the UCoC requires the continuous cooperation to define clear definitions of enforcement pathways and processes. This needs to be done in a way that does not contradict with the internal bylaws and codes of conduct currently in place, but rather to support them and complement their deficiencies, if any.
In this phase of the process, we would like to invite you to share your ideas, thoughts and concerns about the UCoC implementation, reporting and enforcement pathways using this survey:
Notice: This survey will be conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement <https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/UCoC_Affiliates_Survey_Privacy_Statement>.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
