User:Nikerabbit and global interface editor
Hi! We are wondering if Nikerabbit's global interface editor rights are granted for WMF purposes, or as a volunteer (if it was the latter, the rights are expired and need to be removed). The original discussion is at Steward_requests/Global_permissions/2012-08#Global_editinterface_for_Nikerabbit. --Rschen7754 19:39, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
- The rights never went through us and so I would generally consider them to be within the volunteer purview. I'm happy to write to him to see if he needs them for work purposes and, if so, we can convert them into staff rights. Do we know if he's been using them (is that why they are expiring)? Or are they just expiring because they expire automatically with or without use. I can certainly envision a reason for needing them in his language engineering work but whether he actually needs/uses them is a different question :). Jalexander--WMF 19:45, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
- The rights are supposed to be reconfirmed after one year, unless they are granted through WMF staff request. Following... recent events, we checked to see if any other people with this right had not been reconfirmed within the last year. I can wait to remove them until we hear back from you. --Rschen7754 19:53, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Privacy_policy&diff=8477438&oldid=8475976 one of the two changes is uncontroversial. The other is a "Slight change" according to LuisV (WMF)/LVilla (WMF), but I would not dispute the ter substantial, which you used. Why did you revert the former? All it does is link to the new official blog entry. Sheesh. --Elvey (talk) 01:34, 11 May 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.
