Help (fa.wikinews)[edit]

There is only one active sysop and he only delete pages, he don't have any tech knowledge and he is not willing to help anyway, he couldn't even fix the broken main page. there are outdated links in some mediawiki pages like n:fa:MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer‏ he won't fix. there is not enough people with editor right. take a look. I'm writing articles and no one is reviewing. please respond to my sysop flag request, I'm glad at least someone knows the situation. you might know people treat this project as a news agency that's why people don't like this project grow 'cause the project is covering some anti-governmental events. you can go ahead and mark it as undone I won't waste the time to check my watch list anymore.

It isn't a right that I will be changing, and mostly due to me having been involved with a local unblocking, and the discussion. If you believe that your request isn't getting due attention, then please make a representation to Stewards' noticeboard.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:18, 28 December 2014 (UTC)


Hello, I don't really know how wikipedia works, but the article keeps on being reverted by some right winged nationalist. I add a line that states that the person in the article is a anarcho-communist and an athiest, and it keeps being reverted.

Citations for the changes I made. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 008bond (talk)

@008bond: This is a matter for that Wikipedia, and you should address your concerns on that site. For local guidance please see the list of hiWP administrators. Stewards have no local role with regard to general content.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:58, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

What is an RFC's purpose?[edit]

I'm just wondering what outcome if any comes from opening a request for comment discussion. I started a discussion several months ago hoping that it would draw the attention of administration and the matter would be resolved with a decision one way or anotherbut in actuality its been noticed by hardly anyone.


David Condrey (talk) 17:03, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

It is a request for comment to gauge opinion, and the weight of opinion determines whether the issue should progress and in which directions. Who drives it, how it is driven, where it is promoted and whether it is promoted through relevant communities, and the impact all are pertinent for broader opinion. Some go nowhere, some get decisions quickly, some plod along. It is an inexact science.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:10, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Links about compatibility and NFC Tags Specs[edit]

I put those links because they are really up-to-date (more than, for example) and are very useful for users, because those info are hard to find, especially in Italian. Let me know what you think. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Non-authoritative link, without sources. Not sure that it is needed, however, if you believe that it is a valid link then the talk page of the article is the means to progress the addition. You should also declare whether you do or do not have any association with the site to which you are adding the link.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:00, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

see meta update regarding admin abuse for Ymblanter and HJ Mitchell[edit]

These admins are not following policy rules and block without talk engagement including range blocks. The discussions re RedPenofDoom is just a example of conflict of interest with HJ Mitchell, YmBlanter refuses to engage as well. wiki oversight is constantly having to overrule YmBlanter and HJ Mitchell —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

It is an issue for the wiki and needs to be sorted out by the wiki. Stewards are not a global arbitration committee. English Wikpedia has w:WP:UTRS and w:WP:ArbCom, if you believe that you have a case then use them.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:02, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

we cant use arbcom or utrs since get blocked when try to use, the block from posting the original block then causes a block to arbcom/utrs. Oversight is seeing problems with the en wiki admins and they seem a law unto themselves and when people point this out with evidence you get blocked with no talk engagement. This is why arbcom is failing as fails to address users which are blocked.

That is their accountable decision-making process, stewards have no right to intervene with a democratically elected ArbCom.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:57, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

If you're bored![edit]

Could you undelete my user page (from my deletion - couple of junk ones since I see which are not required). While I'll need to remove some of the garbage it will probably be easier to start from a known point. Cheers --Herby talk thyme 08:51, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

@Herbythyme: lazily brought it all back bar the suppressed content. If some stuff needs to be shot again, please do some diffs. Delighted to see you back from your sabbatical, and maybe with some of the enthusiasm returned. Face-smile.svg  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:36, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
'preciated - as to enthusiasm... we'll see ;)--Herby talk thyme 09:49, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

I know I should know the answer but...[edit]

Is local rollback available? My memory is sketchy not having had to rely on such things :) --Herby talk thyme 17:41, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Looking at Special:ListGroupRights it would appear that it is admins only. To me, I would think that the local 'crats would look favourably on your retrieving those rights.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:06, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Meh... --Herby talk thyme 12:59, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
{{spin}} {{twirl}} {{party}} Herbythyme Welcome back to the collective.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:37, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Simply proof I'm mad maybe... --Herby talk thyme 08:39, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Or "further proof that you are still crazy".  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:49, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
