Selam, siz nerelisiniz? (Hi, where are you?) The preceding unsigned comment was added by 123snake45 (talk • contribs) 16:28, 29 May 2013‎.

Here I am :p --Glaisher (talk) 15:18, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Mr.long1528 not a spambot, just a new user who is confused[edit]

Can you please remove the deletion tag? I posted about this on Simple Talk.

Thanks, ELTted (talk) 07:17, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Done. Sorry --Glaisher (talk) 08:15, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your welcome mail. Mr.long1528 (talk) 08:28, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
No problem and sorry for my mistake. --Glaisher (talk)08:30, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

svwiki Kupol(valv) und globale Sperrung[edit]

Bitte siehe [1]. Danke. 83.253.228.202 13:45, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Replied there. --Glaisher (talk) 15:58, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Copyright law[edit]

Without returning the article quotes the author infringes copyright. This is contrary to U.S. law and Slovak.

http://sk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reputa%C4%8Dn%C3%BD_mana%C5%BEment The preceding unsigned comment was added by 95.103.31.17 (talk • contribs) 09:13, 24 June 2013.

If some of the content in the article violates copyright laws, then remove that part. If all the content in the article is an infringement of copyright, then place a {{delete}} tag on the article stating the reason on the talk page. Just blanking out content in articles is not the proper way to deal with such situations. --Glaisher (talk) 09:22, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

simple.wiki tasks[edit]

Hi Glaisher, and thanks for reverting vandalism on simple.wiki (and others)! Is reverting vandalism the only thing you do over there? Well, you can help simple.wiki more at the "Wikipedia Backlog" page, doing those tasks are really appreciated. :) --~ curtaintoad ~~ talk ~ 10:34, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

oldtimerplus.de[edit]

German Wikibooks don't see oldtimerplus.de as spam. Check Diskussion:Traktorenlexikon. We don't want to be disturbed by people that don't understand German nor our arguments why this link is accepted.

Note: Don't remove this link further on!!! -- Juetho (talk) 18:02, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

copyright violation[edit]

hai, your revert copied from other sites.--117.218.66.74 10:41, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Reverted. Thanks for telling. --Glaisher [talk] 10:43, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Script[edit]

Out of curiosity, did that script break the link for you on Monobook? If not, are you sure you either used debug=true or cleared your cache, etc.? PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:58, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Cleared my cache and tried whether it works. Guess what? Blending-in does work in Monobook and other skins too. BTW, thanks for autopatrol. :) --Glaisher [talk] 17:11, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

WMUK[edit]

Hi Glaisher, thanks for helping out at my user talk page on the Wikimedia UK wiki. Fortunately, it wasn't vandalism. At a workshop introducing people to Wikipedia edit I asked people to leave a message on my talk page and I hadn't got round to tidying up. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 09:57, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

@Richard Nevell Now that I think about it, it really isn't abuse. So the question is answered and the answer is "no". Thanks for telling. :-) --Glaisher [talk] 10:08, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Danish Templates[edit]

Hello Glaisher. I see you remove some vandalism on da.wikipedia, that good, but then you warn IP's, can you please use {{test|~~~~}}, {{test2|~~~~}} {{test3|~~~~}}, and not use the subst: infront of it :) Its not nice to read, like this [2] ;) Thanks. --Simeondahl (talk) 21:30, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

OK --Glaisher [talk] 11:32, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

Sorry for accidentally thanking you for an edit! I hope you accept my apologies. Vogone talk 17:18, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

I thanked Vogone for that edit in retaliation. Ajraddatz (Talk) 17:25, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
How dare you? I almost thought the red "1" at the top of the page indicated that something very important might have happened! Vogone talk 17:28, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the help[edit]

I hope you pass on the problems of the block on Wikitionary and get me and the IP unblocked (without a talk page there it appears I cannot communicate with the admins or appeal the decision and thus blocked from doing anything), so I and my colleagues can continue to update informations and definitions in talk for administrators to work on. Appreciated. Please keep me informed. AspieNo1 (talk) 16:39, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Lista krajów Europy wg powierzchni[edit]

Hi, i created this page and it was tagged to be quickly deleted. This page is not in English, but it was translated from English to fill up the gap of the List of European countries by area. There is a link to this page in one of the beginning paragraphs. Please, do not delete this page, cos it is very useful for Polish users.

Please let me know, how to resolve this problem. And also how to add this link to the one of the language versions of [[3]]

Best wishes, Asia

It has already been deleted from Simple English Wikipedia as that project is only for articles written in Simple English. However, you can start that article at Polish Wikipedia. --Glaisher [talk] 12:28, 13 October 2013 (UTC)


thanks a lot. That explains me this problem. Bet regards. A

dinsdags[edit]

Hi Glaisher, you proposed to delete wikt:nl:Overleg:'s dinsdags and wikt:nl:Overleg:'s donderdags. I reverted you because

  1. you don't speak Dutch
  2. you don't recognize http://taaladvies.net/ and http://ans.ruhosting.nl/

Especially ANS (Algemene Nederlandse Spraakkunst) is a useful resource. It regularly tells me something about my Dutch, which I didn't know (apart from speaking Dutch just like they describe). If you have good reasons to want to suppress my assessment, please state them. --80.114.178.7 18:16, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

I confirm. These sites are informative about the Dutch language. JurgenNL (talk) 18:23, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
I have no reason to revert a constructive edit. Thanks for the note. --Glaisher [talk] 07:55, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome. Thank you for patrolling. --80.114.178.7 11:30, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Global UP?[edit]

Did you try it? It's currently beta, and might produce some errors. (You should visit Special:Blankpage/globalsul first, to make sure you are logged in everywhere) PiRSquared17 (talk) 17:27, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

No, I haven't tried it yet. Is it possible to create/edit talk page with the tool? --Glaisher [talk] 18:05, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
It should be now (purge cache) if it says 'v0.2' at the top of the field box. If it says v0.1 or doesn't have any version, it's broken. Please note that the skip list uses a format like: en.wikipedia,it.*,*.wikiquote and that you should probably add a newline or two to the end of the textbox if you use "prepend" (or to the beginning if you use "append"), so that it's on a new line. See User:PiRSquared17/Global_UP. PiRSquared17 (talk) 19:02, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
I ran the script a while ago from abwiki to am.wikt. No errors :-) I can't think of any modifications to my user/talk pages right now but sooner or later I will probably run the script on all the wikis. P.S. don't you think there should be a pause button somewhere? --Glaisher [talk] 09:17, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
@PiRSquared17: For some reason I see no possibility to select "skip all existing pages" in the drop-down menu of "What should be done to existing pages?". Is there no possibility to skip them other than pasting a huge list of existing pages to "Skip wikis:" or do I just overlook something? Vogone talk 12:14, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
Seems fixed. Vogone talk 13:46, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

sv.wikibooks[edit]

Hi. My class is editing. I'll revert any bad edits after class. so please don't ban them now. Regards Averater (talk) 11:48, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi Averater; You could undo the blocks yourself since you're a local sysop. And err, why are you allowing them to vandalize in main namespace? Sandbox or another experimenting page would be better, imo. --Glaisher [talk] 12:03, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
Well I was in the class room and it was my own class so I had bigger hopes for them. And that book they were editing is one I have created. But Hopefully they learned something and next time they'll be more serious. Still thank you for keeping vandalism in check! - Averater (talk) 12:09, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
So no need to unblock them? Glaisher [talk] 12:13, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
No, I took care of it, but thank you. - Averater (talk) 13:22, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Reverted edit[edit]

Hey Glaisher, could you explain why you reverted my colleague's edit on the talk page of the Diversity Conference? Thanks! --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 17:36, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

@Nicole Ebber (WMDE): WHOA! Sorry, I didn't even know that I reverted it. Most probably, a misclick while I was at Special:RecentChanges. Thanks for notifying me and I am really sorry. :-( --Glaisher [talk] 04:07, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
I have tried to add back the content I removed in this edit. Let me know if I messed up again. Thanks Glaisher [talk] 04:25, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
Lovely, all fine now, thanks. :) --Nicole Ebber (WMDE) (talk) 08:06, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

IRC/Channels[edit]

You are exactly right, that is what I was confusing it with. So, this is probably my fault for not reading it completely , but do you think it is repetitive if it only working on irc.wikimedia.org channels be mentioned closer to the channel name pattern given, such as "on the irc.wikimedia.org server, the channel name is #lang.project."? Mysterytrey (talk) 20:32, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator![edit]

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

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades... (our budget is smaller than Commons)

Glaisher, congratulations! You now have the rights of an administrator on Meta. 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-admin @ irc.freenode.net. 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.

Congrats. :-) PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:12, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Mass deletion of pages created by 46.119.124.190[edit]
