Scientology on Swedish Wikipedia[edit]

Hi, my name is Johan and I was doing some minor corrections on the Swedish Wikipedia about Scientologi. An administrator called Annika64 was preventing me to include correct true data, and suddenly this Administrator was censuring and blocking me off accusing me of changing that page of Scientologi to become some more truthful about Scientologi. How come this administrator allows to censur and stop the truth to be put in ? This is violating the free word and the democratic rights of me to put in correct true data. Why this kind of " Swedish-Talibanism", kind of dictatur kommunist censoring in a free democratic country as Sweden ? I want this administrator to be corrected and loose this privilidie as abusing the rules and stopping the free word and truth. Please do a control and correctness if there are others aswell. Sincerely Johan

Please give a description of the columns

Missing Aviation Site[edit] was a very good site for showing differences between the many executive jet aircraft. It has disappeared fairly recently, only this year I think. Have you any idea what has happened to it? Tony The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) 22 May 2009 (UTC)

No. You might try asking them. This is an totally unrelated site, concerned with discussions about Wikimedia Foundation projects. ++Lar: t/c 00:32, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Access[edit]

Hi Folks ! I'm not shure wether to put my request here is the right place. I want to ask for more server speed concerning german wikipedia. Actually the page access is very slow (more than 10 seconds), somtimes i just get a drop/cut because the server is not responding in time. Of course i checked my connectivity - it's OK. If something is moving to solve this problem i'd apreciate to have a note on my user disk. Thanks --Gruß Tom 21:59, 2 July 2009 (UTC) Just found this Info: about Server down --Gruß Tom 07:59, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

wikiquote in sanskrit[edit]

i dont know whether this is the write place to ask a question. you all may know that sanskrit- the oldest and classical and scientific language has a history of a vast period and the it is a treasure of quotes. so a sanskrit wikiquote is a need. so please give how to start a wikiquote in sanskrit. --Dvellakat 05:32, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

I have done that. Please support. Vibhijain 13:45, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Software problem[edit]

I want mandriva technical support

I want to use 3ds max 2010 in mandriva —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 10:40, 17 August 2010

You bought 3ds max without ensuring that it'd work on your platform? It's known not to work under WINE/Crossover [1] so your only choices would be to use a virtualized Windows machine (slow) or multiboot into Windows. Also, this isn't really the right place for questions like this. :) Kylu 12:59, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

New Wiki?[edit]

I don't know if this is the right place, but I can't find where it should go. The system does not seem intuitive and straighforward to me.

I would like to suggest a names wiki: for given names, meanings and origins; and for surnames, meanings (if determinable) and origins.


Where can I ask for modifying of subcategory display scheme? In ru-wiktionary there's now only "(10 c.)" scheme, but I would like to see full "(100 p., 10 c., 2 f.)" scheme. --Infovarius 15:13, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Cancel, I was advised to use MediaWiki:Categorytree-member-num. But how was to find it by self?? Infovarius 09:51, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Global sysop action request[edit]

This isn't a comment about the index page, but I don't know where to put it. There isn't any place where we can ask a global sysop to perform a minor action like moving or editing a protected page on a Wiki where there isn't any local admin nor bureaucrat. I think there should be a place where a contributor could ask for that. Personnaly, I always end up asking on the IRC for that, but it shouldn't be like that in my opinion. Amqui (talk) 03:22, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

There should also be a place to request help from a sysop (and/or stewards) to perform admin action on wikis without active admins such as deletion of pages for example. Please also see Talk:Global sysops#Consolidated request for deletion's page. Amqui (talk) 02:04, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Change settings in sw-wikipedia[edit]

Hi, I am a bureaucrat on sw-wikipedia. We just took a vote to have the settings changed for editing. We want to block unregistered users from starting new entries and to edit. We wanted to do this some years ago but then were told it is not allowed. By now we see that the policy has changed on a number of wikis. So we want to change it but do not know how to do it. So I ask you to help us with that change or to refer us to whosoever can do this. Can you please help us? Please respond to my page at Kipala (talk) 18:05, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Updates needed[edit]

The page should tell readers which projects are active and closed. So far, the whole page of lists is somewhat outdated. --George Ho (talk) 10:42, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
