Wikimania Pages[edit]

The following wikimania pages need changes, and only Meta Stewards can edit old wikimania projects:

  • The following lines (lines 5 - 6)
-->Edit counters: [//toolserver.org/~vvv/yaec.php?user={{urlencode:$1}}&wiki=wikimania2010wiki_p vvv's tool] · [//toolserver.org/~tparis/count/index.php?name={{urlencode:$1}}&lang=wikimania2010&wiki=wikimedia X!'s tool] · <!--

Thanks! -- SLV100 (talk) 05:32, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

I was only able to do the 2008 and 2009 requests as I do not have accounts on the other projects and even stewards are unable to create accounts on locked projects. I've emailed the list asking for advice. MBisanz talk 00:05, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
I have two ideas:
  • One is a semi-solution:
We can ask User:Pathoschild, a steward that has accounts at Wikimania 2006 and Wikimania 2007, to fulfill the Wikimania 2006 and Wikimania 2007 requests.
  • The other one is a little radical, but it is a solution:
None of the registered users at Wikimania 2005 are stewards, but two are responsible former stewards, User:Oscar and User:Sj, that also have accounts at Wikimania 2006 and Wikimania 2007, and both had their steward right removed by self-request (see Oscar's request and Sj's request). You can ask one of them if he is willing to fulfill the remaining Wikimania requests if you temporarily grant him the steward right.
Thanks for fulfilling the previous requests! -- SLV100 (talk) 03:18, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Those are good ideas, but after talking to the other stewards, we've decided that these old, closed wikis are worth updating for this sort of thing as they are meant to be archival and will not continue to be updated for other out of date information. MBisanz talk 14:27, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Username change[edit]

Hello, Previously I had my username Ramajois and changed it to Shriram. I had contributed to kn.wikipedia.org with username Ramajois. But due to visiting that wiki, account with my new username Shriram was created. There are no burecrats in knwiki. I'm asking you here because I dont know where to place 'this' kind of request! Can you rename Ramajois → Shriram please? I have placed a req in meta wiki for other merging other wikis. But this actually needs to be renamed for getting my contributions back right? If you want I can confirm with a talk page edit in knwiki. Thank you. Shriram (talk) 14:55, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes, if you can confirm with a talk page edit on kn.wiki, I would be able to do the rename. MBisanz talk 15:00, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. I got confused which to confirm. So I've done both. diff1 and 2. Please change Ramajois → Shriram
Shriram (talk) 16:48, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done MBisanz talk 16:58, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Shriram (talk) 17:03, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks an those renames but I could not find crats for mrwp here.Shriram (talk) 17:15, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Try leaving a note on here or here. They are the local, active, crats. MBisanz talk 17:27, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks again. Shriram (talk) 12:08, 19 March 2012 (UTC)


VKH[edit]

Hi,

I'm using Bobybarman34 and I want to change it for VKH. Please, help me. --Bobybarman34 (talk) 16:24, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

I did the change on en.wiki and can't do the other change here. Try logging into VKH on en.wiki. MBisanz talk 07:13, 5 May 2012 (UTC)


Why?[edit]

Dear MBisanz, Please clarify why you have removed my request after approving it? Thank you. Jargal (talk) 00:07, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

I moved it to Steward_requests/Permissions/Approved_temporary#Expiring:_15_November_2012 so we can track it. Sorry for the confusion. MBisanz talk 15:14, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

ms.wikipedia[edit]

You ask to be informed. Know that I find your action unacceptable, as it is a non-emergency case in a local project. ...Aurora... (talk) 08:54, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I've responded. MBisanz talk 10:50, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

bxr.wikipedia[edit]

Why have you given me a Sysop status? The election was to permanent! Plese give me it, if it is not a problem. You will not regret it when you will see that in the beginning of 2014 Buryat wiki has 1,000 articles and a lot of active users. Thank you. --Gubin (talk), 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for stopping by. I gave you temp status because of the current size of Buryat wiki's community. There is only one other admin and they are also a temporary administrator. As the community expands and the number of articles grows, you can become a permanent admin, but until then, you and the other administrator will need to come back here every six months to renew your temporary adminship. It is in no way a reflection on you or a limit on your admin authority, but a reflection of the current size of the community. Thanks. MBisanz talk 01:06, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
You do not work on this wiki, and I work. There are 10 active users and 20 active bots. We have a community, and at the last time it was created almost 50 new articles! I do not have enough time and enough opinion of 6 months to do all that I want! And I do not want to come back once more. --Gubin (talk), 10 September 2012 (UTC)
If you have more to do after six months, just come back and let us know and we'll extend it. I'm sorry, that's just the way it works. MBisanz talk 18:50, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
  • OK, but will you give me the permanent flag after it? --Gubin (talk), 10 September 2012 (UTC)
    • If the community is the same size, I'll extend it to a year temp flag. If it's a bit larger than it is now, I'll make it permanent. MBisanz talk 19:44, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Gubin and an illegal image uploading in Wikipedia[edit]

Gubin has a negative experience in image uploading at Commons [1], where Gubin uploaded a lot of illegal content and mystyfied file descriptions. Next Gubin was trying to upload illegal images in Russian Wikipedia [2], but was stopped by admins [3], Gubin didn't got a rollbacker flag [4] as his activity in ruwiki was nonconstructive. He uploaded illegal copy of nonfree image in Mongolian Wikipedia [5] (Google finds its better version [6]) and also he used his sysop flag to block me when I was trying to convince him the images he uploaded to the bxr.wikipedia are illegal. The image [7] is a screenshot of the video file 'UB rising' (1:33) created by the M.A.D. agency (Gubin agree with this) and it is nonfree (Gubin agree with this also) but Gubin doesn't want delete this file and blocked me [8]. M.A.D. Agency disclamer is here[9] ('You may view, download for caching purposes only, and print pages from the website for your own personal use, subject to the restrictions below. You must not: (a) republish material from this website (including republication on another website); (b) sell, rent or otherwise sub-license material from the website; (c) show any material from the website in public; (d) reproduce, duplicate, copy or otherwise exploit material on our website for a commercial purpose; (e) edit or otherwise modify any material on the website; or redistribute material from this website except for content specifically and expressly made available for redistribution (such as our newsletter).') We had a discussion about this screenshot [10] where Gubin declared this file nonfree ('that is why I have uploaded it not to the Commons but to the Wikipedia' - Gubin said [11], next he declared this file 'the single image of the MAK-Tower in Ulan Bator (Mongolia) used in the single article about this construction'). Next Gubin replaced the non-free screenshot[12] with the file derived from the Commons file [13] (this file also looks to be a screenshot but I didn't find the original video, Gubin declares this file under self cc-by-sa-3.0 licence). Bogomolov.PL (talk) 00:27, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes, the photos - that's my problem. But the user Bogomolov.PL is blocked in the Buryat Wikipedia for violations. I changed the file so it is not a problem now. Do not worry. In Buryat wiki are 2 times more articles! --Gubin (talk) 14:09, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
  • I fail to see how his conduct at other projects is a matter for Steward review. Buryat wiki has a community and they are, presumably, in compliance with WMF copyright rules. If Buryat wiki is systematically failing to enforce copyright, you should start an RFC on that topic on Meta. MBisanz talk 17:15, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
    • What my violations? It was no violations, Gubin can not explain a nature of so called 'violations'.
    • Why telling to Gubin about illegal image problem was blocked by sysop Gubin?
    • And why, why Gubin uploads illegal content at Commons, at Mongolian Wikipedia, at Russian Wikipedia, at Buryat Wikipedia?
    • If Buryat wiki is systematically failing to enforce copyright - not a Buryat Wikipedia, but the sysop Gubin is systematically failing to enforce copyright.
    • In Buryat wiki are 2 times more articles! - stubs only like 'New Zealand is a contry in Australia' [14] (this is not my hoax - really this sort of articles). Bogomolov.PL (talk) 17:41, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
      • If Gubin is violating copyright, that is a matter for Buryat wiki, not the Stewards. MBisanz talk 18:00, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
      • Gubin is a single sysop in Buryat Wiki so Gubin must fight with himself to prevent copyright violations, but Gubin fights with me who tells Gubin about copyright violations. Bogomolov.PL (talk) 18:26, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Incident is over. Now there are no copyright violations. User Bogomolov.PL is unlocked.--Gubin (talk) 15:22, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
    • Incident is not over: Gubin warns me with indefinite block in Buryat Wikipedia and is talking about the need to block me in all Wikipedias, also Gubin offends me[15],[16]. Bogomolov.PL (talk) 16:32, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Not me, but that men, who wrote this on Bogomolov.PL talk in ru wiki.--Gubin 16:45, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
    • Gubin repeats insults and supports insults made years ago by the IP user in ruwiki. Bogomolov.PL (talk) 17:10, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Bogomolov.PL offends me [17].--Gubin 14:04, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
  • This is not a matter for Steward intervention. This is an internal Buryat Wiki matter. If a matter involves multiple projects, then see Requests for comment. MBisanz talk 15:00, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
    • Yes, Gubin is mystyfing when declares I've allegedly insulted him. But the matter of the problem is Gubin's sysop flag misuse (he is a single sysop in Buryat Wiki) and practiced by Gubin copyright violating in multiply projects. But Gubin declares community absence at Buryat Wiki and describes Buryat Wiki 'decaying'[18], so how the problem can be resolved in Buryat Wiki? Bogomolov.PL (talk) 15:49, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
      • I'll repeat. This is not a Steward matter, I will not resolve your complaint. Either resolve it on Buryat Wiki or prove that Gubin has caused problems on multiple projects in a requests for comment. MBisanz talk 22:18, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

person you made admin at ks.wp[edit]

[19]

I did not see any inform of local community. Unfortunately this person should NOT be admin, I published several pages in this site. He is a Hindu nationalist who tries to replace works in Kashmiri with words in Hindi language.

Previously the main page was written in Sanskrit and Urdu languages, not Kashmiri. Later, a user replaced these foreign texts with text in Kashmiri language: [20] in addition to translating much of the interface and creating many stub articles.

Now users u have made admin, restores foreign languages text to top of Kashmiri site, moves pages from Kashmiri to Sanskrit titles, and suggests for deletion pages written in real Kashmiri just because they are short. He admit on his own user page, [21] kashmiri not his native language.

Please, undo the damage, allow the Wiki to remain neutral and undo political extremism wrought by that user. Thank you for listening.

I want to add, he even replaced the logo to switch the script of the Wiki. He says "Devanagari is more dominant" - what a joke, even in Hindu majority India, the Official script for Kashmiri is Perso-Arabic! 99.9% of Kashmiris, even Kashmiri Hindus, uses this writing, not Hindi writing. Although their writings are welcome in ks.wikipedia, it is wrong to try to dominate it and replace most common, normal writing.

This user has never written a single original sentence in Kashmiri... I doubt he even speaks the language at all. He is only at the Wiki to push his politics agenda of anti-Arabic script!

There was a request here. MBisanz talk 14:18, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Don't make rude comments like that against me, I suggest you create a blog to vent your anger on hindus. you can check my contributions on en.wiki, there I have never edited on pro-Hindu articles (or any Hindu article of any sort), and on hi.wiki I have started the whole Wikiproject Islam and have created & expanded many pages like hi:इस्लामी संस्कृति(islamic culture), hi:मस्जिद(mosque- which I hope will gain FA soon) If you check I now decided to separate the scripts, by starting a test wiki for the Nagari, and I am currently removing the Nagari from the actual wiki, Devanagari is used and if you look closer online you will see more Devanagari Kashmiri sites as opposed to Persio-Arab ones, look at the request how I crossed out the fact to deleting and said I shall continue to contribute in the script it is already in. This is the problem I feared would happen, so I'm working to remove the Nagari from ks.wiki and move it to kas.wiki. If I must say, Kashmiri is not my native language, I am learning Kashmiri still but I know enough to manage this orphan wiki, and I do not know Sanskrit and even if you look to my Hindi contributions, they have a problem because I use too many Urdu words that they are not familiar with. we have just got a new user come in and use Devanagari, I directed him to the testwiki and also posted it on the talk of the main page, I was also in a position of confusion and had you been there to help then I would have done this long back --फ़ाराह् देसाईं खान (talk) 19:55, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
And I'm a she and my name is not in Sanskrit either, what kind of Hindu political activist that has a sanskrit name will create numerous articles about Islam and use an arabic vocabulary in hindi? --फ़ाराह् देसाईं खान (talk) 19:58, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
You published several works in the wiki, are you the Khargosh? who published articles with one word and file, you could have made it a sentence at least? or maybe you don't know Kashmiri either but claimed it on your userpage? and you're telling me how I don't know the language. and the Khargosh also deleted a few Devanagari Kashmiri articles claiming it was not Kashmiri? --फ़ाराह् देसाईं खान (talk) 20:48, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Regarding some of the comments made here I have requested for my username to be changed at Steward requests/Username changes#फ़ाराह् देसाईं खान@global. --Farah Desai KhanTalk 11:50, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Kashmiri[edit]

Hello, when I reached to Translatwiki.net, there are the 3 options for Kashmiri, ks-arab, ks-deva, and just ks, I don't know how to but I would have ks for the arab script and kas for the Devanagari script. The people who were concerned about this problem and who left messages in the wiki now seem to be inactive, please show me where to take this matter up? --Farah Desai KhanTalk 14:57, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

I don't know how that tool works. You should ask User:Siebrand. MBisanz talk 01:41, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Will you please take a look at Steward requests/Username changes#Assassin's Creed@global, I've placed a request to change my username globally, please help me in that.--Assassin's Creed (talk) 10:09, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Getting unblocked quicker[edit]

MBisanz, can you please unblock me on October 16, 2012 please? I just miss editing on Wikipedia and other language wikis and stuff. So can you please do it for me? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 2:08, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

User:MBisanz/common.js[edit]

How do I do it make? Greeting! --Kolega2357 (talk) 21:54, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi, it depends on what you're trying to do. It's a code page for altering your personal settings. MBisanz talk 22:08, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

I'm just asking. What it actually does I have seen for many users? --Kolega2357 (talk) 22:20, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

It lets users alter how the site responds to them to provide shortcuts and additional editing tools. Mine lets me delete global accounts and unify accounts at multiple wikis faster than if I didn't have it. MBisanz talk 22:55, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

MBisanz, did you get my message to you about me getting unblocked quicker? I already apologized and I truly mean it this time, okay? Please. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 2:08, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Don't spam again. MBisanz talk 15:54, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

MBisanz, now it said a guy named Daniel Case blocked me. What happened? How can that be if you just unblocked me? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 2:08, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, you have to list an unblock request on your userpage on the wiki that he blocked you on. I can't help there. MBisanz talk 21:28, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

MBisanz, you blocked me again. What did I do? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 6:00, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Simple. You broke your promise to stop the behavior that led to your previous block.--Jasper Deng (talk) 01:03, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Well, when will the block expire? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 2:18, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

In three months. MBisanz talk 12:03, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
I should add that if you continue this after the block expires, you'll be blocked again, for longer.--Jasper Deng (talk) 16:37, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

So, I will be unblocked in February 2013? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 3:24, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

How did I break my promise though? Sorry. comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 8:20, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Also, getting unblocked next year is kind of unfair. Can't I be unblocked quicker, like say on November 6, 2012? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 8:44, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Please respond to me. comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 10:50, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

You continued the interwiki spamming. You will not be unblocked. MBisanz talk 00:48, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

But how did I spam the interwikis? All I was trying to do was improve them and add more to articles on the English Wikipedia, that's all. You know I am simply trying to help out here, right? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 9:17, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

You know how. If you still wish to contest this block go to SRG, because I don't think MBisanz is going to unblock anytime soon.--Jasper Deng (talk) 04:19, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

What is SRG? Is it anything dangerous or anything bad like that? I sure hope not. If not, then tell me. comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 10:44, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

If you click the link you will find out what it is. It's the same as Steward requests/Global that I told you about a week ago. You will get one chance to go there to request unblock. -- Tegel (Talk) 06:05, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

I did already. Now what? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 3:42, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Now you wait for a reply on that page. -- Tegel (Talk) 10:44, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

I just got a reply! The guy who replied said this: "Probably not by anyone except for the steward that blocked you. Best inquire at the talk page of MBisanz (talk · contribs) and see what it was that was no acceptable, and how you can modify your actions to get the block removed." comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 4:59, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

I got the reply. What do I do now? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 9:04, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

MBisanz, you know that language wiki "Gaelige"? Well, if you would unblock me, I would appreciate it if I would be able to go back to editing the language wikis to add more on the side of English articles on Wikipedia. comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 10:54, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

MBisanz, did you get my message? Answer me, please! I am sorry for being a troll! FORGIVE ME! PLEASE, PLEASE!!!! comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 2:30, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

I've seen your appeal and continue to deny it. MBisanz talk 18:02, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

But why? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 2:20, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

MBisanz, look, I will prove it to you then. For example, if I wanna add Jack in the Box in the one Polish wikipedia, I will simply put this with an added image of this:

Restauracja Jack w skrzynce

"Jack w skrzynce − amerykańska sieć barów szybkiej obsługi." comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 5:13, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

So will you unblock me, MBisanz, since I proved to you there I will try my best to improve the wikis again? comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 4:19, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Respond, please. comment added by 68.3.67.81 (talk) 12:36, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki translation - buryat[edit]

MBisanz * My talk * My preferences * My watchlist * My contributions * Log out

And I want it to be:

MBisanz * Минин яриа * Минин тохиргоо * Минин хянаж буй хуудсууд * Минин хувь нэмэр * Гарах


As well as the side:

  • Нюур хуудаһан
  • Community portal
  • Current events
  • Recent changes
  • Random page
  • Help
  • Donate

I want to be:

  • Нюур хуудаһан
  • Хурал
  • Һонин мэдээн
  • Сайтдахи хубилалтанууд
  • Үгүүлэл
  • Асууха
  • Donate

What I have to do? Can you help me? Thank you!--Gubin 13:32, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

You need to ask someone on this list to approve the translation. MBisanz talk 16:39, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Done. Is it possible to combine the two global accounts? Tsebeen and Jargal - it is one and the same person, but he can't restore login info for Tsebeen. He asked me to combine under the name Jargal. Can you do it?--Gubin 14:59, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
    • I deleted Tsebeen's global account. He'll need to request a local rename from Jargal to Tsebeen. MBisanz talk 23:33, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
      • And where can he do it?--Gubin 13:36, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
      • I'm sorry, I didn't realize he already had the Jargal account. There is no way to merge accounts, so I can't combine his accounts. I could only rename him from Jargal to Tsebeen if he wanted to resume editing under that name. MBisanz talk 14:55, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
        • I dont know, but now bxr.wiki ia not attached to Jargal (he is from Buryatia and he workes there, and before it was). What to do?--Gubin 17:49, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
          • It looks attached to me? MBisanz talk 17:53, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
            • But this?--Gubin 17:57, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
              • Hmm, tell him to click this. MBisanz talk 18:05, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Do you remember that I promised you? It happened! In Buryat Wikipedia more than 1000 articles and a lot of active users! We have three candidates for adminship. We have the community! I hold my promises!--Gubin 20:40, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
    • Congrats! I'm very proud of you all. I didn't expect it and you certainly proved me wrong. MBisanz talk 20:46, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
  • If you are active, see this. 3 users.--Gubin 08:35, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
    • Can you rename my global account into MongolDragon?--Gubin 13:01, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
      • I can rename a couple of your local accounts to MongolDragon, but you would need to go to each wiki with bureaucrats where you want it renamed. MBisanz talk 23:52, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Important announcement: Election delayed by one week[edit]

The Election Committee regrets to advise that it is necessary to delay the start of voting in the WMF Elections 2013 for one week. This delay is being implemented for three reasons:

  • We have been unable to verify that the list of eligible voters is complete and that all voters meet the published criteria
  • We have been unable to verify that the SecurePoll setups for the election are properly functioning
  • The voter interfaces have not been translated and are not currently available in any language other than English, thus disadvantaging Wikimedians who do not read English.

The following changes are now made to the Election timeline:

  • 8-22 June 2013: elections
  • 23-25 June 2013: vote-checking
  • 25-28 June: publication of results.

For the Election Committee, Risker (talk) 21:05, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

What do you think?[edit]
