can you please speak to 126.96.36.199 to stop calling me "abusive" and keep fussing on a closed case? I'm sick and tired reading this false things about me. My contributions all over the project speak another language. Alternatively, how can i report this IP? Thanks in advance --Saviour1981 (talk) 14:56, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
A ctrl+f on Steward Requests shows no use of those words. In any case the matter seems closed to me. SnowolfHow can I help? 18:56, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
They didn't stop arguing. Did you check the revision immediately prior to my attempt to archive the thread? The anon wished to continue the argument. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 20:00, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
I had not notice that, thank you for pointing that out. I have stuck and archive top and bottom on the request now. SnowolfHow can I help? 20:03, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome, and thank you for understanding and helping. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 20:14, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Thank you everyone. I'm glad we had this conversation :) --Saviour1981 (talk) 08:18, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Is it possible that i can report this IP? It's not just bullying me for being "abusive" (i never was and never will), it calls two stewards as "disqualified" due to the fact that the IP can't accept the final decision. This IP wasn't active in some Wikimedia projects but is foul mouthed on a discussion that's nothing to it. See here, here, and there. The behaviour of this IP is not acceptable --Saviour1981 (talk) 10:14, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Snowolf :) We would like to remove urdu wikipedia from that list of wikis where Global sysops can use their rights, So how it will be done? :) --Muhammad Shuaib (talk) 11:23, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Hello Muhammad. First of all, with only two currently active admins on the project, I think it would be most unwise to remove the wiki from the global sysop set as global sysops can provide valuable help with vandal and spam attacks at time where local admins might be otherwise unavailable. From a quick peak at the logs, I also see only one GS action this year, so I'm curious as to why you feel like this is required. Anyway, the procedure would involve community discussion and vote on the local village pump. SnowolfHow can I help? 14:36, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

I am requesting a Wikipedia IRC Cloak. I have already filled out the Google Docs Form. I meet the requirements. I am very active on IRC, helping users out both on Wikipedia and IRC. I understand if you are busy. Note: Please ping me or leave a talkback on my page in case I forget to check back on this talk page; thank you. --JustBerry (talk) 03:24, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes, that was a typo. The account is Zerabat, and the IRC nickname is zerabat. Thanks. --Zerabat (discusión) 18:32, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
You will be able to use information from Wikidata directly in Wikiquote pages starting on June 10. 
On wikis with the Translate extension enabled, translation administrators will soon be able to use the page migration tool to import existing translations to the new system. 
You will soon see metadata on file description pages for Ogg files (example video, example audio). Some metadata with non-English characters may need to be purged or transcoded to UTF-8 before they show correctly. 
Templates containing <ref> or <references> tags will no longer need dummy parameters to prevent caching. 
You will no longer be able to use Special:Thanks directly. The page will soon show an error message when you visit it. 
An IRC discussion about Phabricator will take place on June 17 at 17:30 UTC on the channel #wikimedia-office on freenode (time conversion). You can also read a blog post about the upcoming switch to Phabricator.
You can now comment on the draft 2014-15 goals of the Wikimedia Foundation engineering department. 
CirrusSearch results will soon take into account categories, the first paragraph and the wikitext of a page. You will also be able to use regular expressions to search the wikitext. It will take a few days for the changes to be enabled on all wikis.

Recent software changes
The latest version of MediaWiki (1.24wmf14) was added to test wikis and MediaWiki.org on July 17. It will be added to non-Wikipedia wikis on July 22, and to all Wikipedias on July 24 (calendar).
CirrusSearch was removed as the primary search method from Wikimedia Commons and the Spanish (es) Wikipedia due to a high server load. The plan to enable it on the Dutch (nl), Japanese (ja), Polish (pl) and Russian (ru) Wikipedias was also postponed to a later date. 
The tool that stores information about languages (CLDR) was updated to its latest version. You can still help translate language names into your own language so they can be used in the sidebar and other places. 
Tablet users visiting the mobile version of Wikimedia wikis will be able to use a special version of VisualEditor starting on July 31. You can test the new tool by choosing the beta version of the mobile view in the Settings menu. Feedback is welcome. 
All windows in VisualEditor have now a new design. Main action buttons will always be located in the top bar and will use simple words rather than icons. 
You can now easily open links inside the link editor, for example to see their target. 
Several bugs related to the positioning of the cursor around some items (like images and references) were fixed last week. 
Future software changes
It will soon be possible to watch individual discussions in the Topic namespace rather than whole pages for talk pages using Flow. 
You can give comments about the new version of Winter, a proposal to have a fixed toolbar at the top of wiki pages. 
An IRC meeting to organize Pywikibot bugs will take place from July 24 to July 27 on the channel #pywikibot on freenode.
