Are we sure that cookie names should be translatable? --Nemo 08:57, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi, todays tech-news that you posted via Mass message seems not to have been delivered to the second part of the list Global message delivery/Targets/Tech ambassadors with community pages, with the following errorlog (wikisource.org):
- 08:38 (Mass message log) . . Delivery of "Tech News: 2013-49" to Scriptorium was skipped because target was in a namespace that cannot be posted in .
--Thurs (talk) 10:34, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
- Thank you for notifying me; I thought I had tested this use case but apparently there was something else I missed. I'll launch the delivery using the old system on that page set. guillom 15:01, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
- I've delivered the newsletter using EdwardsBot for the pages that didn't get it through MassMessage. Some of the community pages did get it the first time; below is the breakdown of which did and which didn't, in case Legoktm wants to confirm if this is the issue he has a patch for, or something else. guillom 16:19, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
A barnstar for you!
||The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
|I notice I haven't given you a barnstar yet, so it's time to fix that ommission :-) Since WikiLove isn't enabled on Meta, I took the liberty to copy the wiki-code, hope you don't mind that!
I just wanted to let you know that your various contributions—from publishing Tech News to writing engineering reports, to helping out with Bugzilla bugs, to updating documentation on MediaWiki.org, and more!—are greatly appreciated.
I really enjoyed working with you between May and July, and will be looking forward to a fruitful cooperation in the future. I know that sending WikiLove to Foundation employees isn't exactly a frequent thing, so here's an effort to change that!
Again, thanks for all your work for the movement! odder (talk) 19:24, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
- odder: You just made my day :) Dziękuję bardzo! I enjoyed our work together as well, and Tech news wouldn't have been the same without you. I do hope we can work together again in the future, be it on Tech news or other projects :) guillom 08:11, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
Salut, je suis en train de remodeler Module:Template translation principalement pour utiliser les fallbacks de langues inclus dans MediaWiki et au passage je nettoie un peu le code. De ce que j’observe actuellement, il ne semble pas/plus y avoir de problèmes pour les chaînes de caractères contenant des apostrophes dans
mw.language.isKnownLanguageTag (ta modif ayant introduit cette vérification), mais je ne sais pas vraiment quel était le problème. Est-ce que tu te rappelle quel était exactement le problème et est-ce que tu confirmes que ça marche maintenant ?

Request for feedback on my GSoC'14 proposal
I am planning to work on the project titled "Tools for mass migration of legacy translated wiki content" this summer under Google Summer of Code. I have drafted a proposal for the same over the past few weeks. This project is going to help the translation adminstrators like you in a great way, as it would completely automate the tedious manual task of preparing a page for translation and then importing the translations into the Translate extension. You can check the proposal page for detailed information on how I plan to accomplish this.
As you would be an end user of this tool, it would be great if you could go through the proposal and provide feedback/suggestions. Your feedback would definitely help me improve the proposal as well help in creating an even better tool. You can do the same on the discussion page of the proposal or reply here, whichever is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!
P.S: I need to submit the proposal to Google by March 19, 2014.

Notice of review of adminship
Hello Guillom. In accordance with Meta:Administrators/Removal and because you have made fewer than ten logged administrator actions over the past six months, your adminship is under review at Meta:Administrators/Removal/April 2014. If you would like to retain your adminship, please sign there before April 08, 2014. Kind regards, Barras talk 09:58, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi Guillom. Did you mean Tuesday 22nd or Thursday 25th for Andre Klapper's IRC office hours? Also, I've tweaked the entry so that it has zeros in front of the start/end hours, as otherwise the RSS feed gets a bit confused. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:55, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
- Mike: I meant Tuesday; I copy/pasted my own entry from last Thursday and forgot to update that parameter. It's fixed now. Thank you for the notice, and thank you for fixing the zero padding as well! guillom 12:40, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
FYI (because you are one of the wizards who could solve this rotting problem with two days of work, given some bug fixing). --Nemo 08:49, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Please test the new feature Special:PageMigration
As a Google Summer of Code Intern, I have been working on the Mass Migration tools project for Wikimedia. We are now ready with a minimal working product. The tool helps translators and translation administrators import the old translations into the Translate Extension.
An instance of the same has been set up on labs. You can find some useful instructions on the main page.
Please test the tool and report bugs/suggestions using the link provided on the main page itself. You can have a look at the tracking bug to check already reported bugs.
Looking forward to hearing from you! Cheers. BPositive (talk) 14:33, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
I've just finished the translation of the Licensing tutorial into lb (as we would like to have the entire upload wizard available in lb when celebrating the 10th anniversary of lb-wikipedia. then I noticed on Category:Translations in need of publishing that there is a number of language bersions of this tutorial in need of publication. As I learned that some time ago you took care of these publications I guessed it a good idea to adress you in order to find out who could best help on this issue. Best regards and many thanks for your reply.--Robby (talk) 03:24, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions
The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.
If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.
I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:07, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
