Request for an account on the Foundation wiki

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Requests and proposals Request an account on Foundation wiki Archives (current)→
This page is for requesting the creation of a user account on the Wikimedia Foundation's website (not on any other wiki).
  1. To ensure that users are already familiar with the policies of at least one Wikimedia project, those applying for an account should be administrators or active editors in good standing [on any Wikimedia wiki], particularly active editors and translators on Meta and movement-level projects, or members of a Wikimedia committee or Chapter. Creation of an account is not automatic and is subject to approval.
  2. To ensure that requests are not forged, only registered users on Meta can submit requests. Please keep this page on your watchlist and check back on your request; you may be asked for more information before a request is accepted or rejected. If you do not respond, your request may be removed.
  3. After seeing your request fulfilled, please archive your section. Thanks!

Please provide:

  • your username, with a link to a Wikimedia project where you are an admin or the names of the committee(s) or local chapters of which you are a member
  • a valid email address (not Special:Emailuser. We need a valid e-mail address to plug into the "create an account by e-mail" form.)
  • the reason(s) you need an account
  • your dated signature

Please note: You do not need an account on the Foundation wiki to help with most translations, and requests for accounts simply to translate will be denied. Translation work is done here on Meta-Wiki so that many people can collaborate and so that pages can be proofread before being published. If you wish to apply to do "WikiGnome work" please first spend time being active on Foundation wiki feedback or other Meta-/Foundation-level projects.

Thank you for your interest!

  • Projects where I'm involved: w:en:User:Resident Mario
  • E-mail address:
  • Reason why I need an account: I'm a writer at the Signpost and I'd like to create an account because, as fun as it is to parse through various staffers making small changes to their WMF userpages every month, I'd quite like to...not have to do that. To that effect I need an account so I can set up a related-changes tracker for myself and other writes, as I did for instance here on the meta-wiki. Resident Mario (talk) 14:34, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
While I'm here, @PEarley (WMF):: wmf:Minutes/2015-02-06, under "Strategy update and annual plan" the first word should be "Lila", not "Lile" :). Reading it I was very briefly very confused. ResMar 01:08, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
Resident Mario, account created - check your email for a temp password. Looks like Steinsplitter got the typo, though (cheers, Steinsplitter). PEarley (WMF) (talk) 15:18, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

  • E-mail address: asen_stefanov28 at
  • Reason why I need an account: I would like to start a translation of Foundation pages in bulgarian. Thank you in advance. --Vodnokon4e (talk) 15:01, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Hello Vodnokon4e, thanks for offering to help with translations. Currently, translations of pages usually happens here on the corresponding page on Meta, then are copied over. Which pages in particular would you like to help with? Patrick Earley (WMF) (talk) 18:14, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Patrick! In my opinion Work_with_us and Our_projects will be a good start. I haven't noticed these pages on Meta or maybe I didn't search for them well enough. In the near future - pages related to local chapters as in Local_chapters - the process of creation in Bulgaria is in progress and probably we will need some translated pages, where the wikimedians of Bulgaria will be able to find helpful info. --Vodnokon4e (talk) 02:22, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
Vodnokon4e, thanks for your help on the Bulgarian chapter info, and the explanation. I'm not sure that the first two pages you linked are set up for translation, though. Check your inbox for a login and a temporary password. Patrick Earley (WMF) (talk) 17:29, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

You do realize that's not the purpose of that wiki right? @Bluerasberry:, meta-wiki exist for this kind of request.--AldNonymousBicara? 17:20, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Aldnonymous Please help me realize. Am I encouraged to copy pages there to here on meta? I would prefer to fork content to here, especially when it relates as much to the Wikimedia community as the Wikimedia Foundation. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:38, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
"I wish to post a request on a talk page." ha?--AldNonymousBicara? 13:22, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Resolved.
Aldnonymous I started to move WMF content here. Thanks for the advice to keep discussion on meta. See Talk:Wikimedia_Foundation_Board_of_Trustees#Move_this_page_to_History_of_the_Wikimedia_Foundation_Board_of_Trustees for details. Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:20, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
