I tend to be slow in replying to requests made on this page, so do feel free to poke me further if I don't appear to be replying to a query that needs an answer on my part. After a thread no longer requires a reply on my part, I will mark it as answered using a template. If you feel the need to re-open a thread, write under the archived section.
If you require a quicker reply, consider contacting me via IRC (I am QueenOfFrance).

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)

… so why didn't you remove it? Would be great if you could do that now, the Bing cache might be usefull for several Wikimedia projects.

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)
To reply to your edit summary, I personally wasn't aware of how to get operators' attention when needed, and would like for that information to be more discoverable; perhaps that page isn't the right place, though. Best, Sharihareswara (WMF) (talk) 20:11, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Hola, gracias por tu interés, sí ese era yo intentando registrarme debido a que el contraseña que me enviaron el 2 de junio no funciona, saludos, gracias!.--Sergio Andres Segovia (talk) 10:10, 19 August 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.
Aaegh, this is an unfortunate careless mistake indeed! Combinations of characters are tricky, but you're right that a prior diligent check would save rhe conundrum :( Pundit (talk) 18:08, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
Excuse me, I come here to request for an invite to join IRC #wikimedia-admin. I'm a sysop on Vietnamese Wikipedia and Vietnamese Wiktionary. I have a "trusted" history which can be see here. Thanks in advance. Sincerely. --minhhuy(talk) 14:32, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Recent software changes
You can now change the style of links to disambiguation pages. This is done with the mw-disambigCSS class. 
There was a problem on right-to-left wikis with Wikidata log entries. The text was messy in watchlists and recent changes. The problem is now fixed. The same problem will be fixed soon for user names. 
New users are randomly chosen for a test on 12 Wikipedias. They get messages with ideas of articles to edit. The ideas come from what they have already edited. 
There was a problem with loading images on September 10. 
If you don't select text when you add a link, the link now shows a number. 
The citation tool no longer offers to reuse a citation if there are none on the page yet. 
You can now use help buttons in the "Page settings" menu to see what the options are for. 
Future software changes
The latest version of MediaWiki (1.24wmf21) is on test wikis and MediaWiki.org since September 11. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis on September 16, and on all Wikipedias on September 18 (calendar).
