  • E-mail address: jason.lee.quinn@gmail.com

further into the past by scanning the annual reports and other relevant public documents that might have pertinent information.

User:Benoit Rochon

  • Projects where I'm involved: I'm an editor on Wikipédia since 2006, on Wikimedia Canada Board of Directors since 2011, I'm an admin on Commons and Wikidata, and involved in GLAM projects.
  • E-mail address: brochon@wikimedia.ca

I'm French Canadian and many times I wanted to update and clean up French pages on the Foundation Website. Yesterday, I was sending an official email to a GLAM institution, with a link to Our projects/fr... Wikidata and Wikivoyage is not showing!
So I told myself, that's it!!! I need an account in order to update and clean up the French version of our central, our official, Website! Thanks for your trust. --Benoit Rochon (talk) 18:44, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
All set. Thanks for volunteering to help out! --MZMcBride (talk) 18:47, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

PinkAmpersand

  • Projects where I'm involved: Wikidata sysop, trusted user on En-WP
  • E-mail address: pinkampersand.wikimedia@gmail.com
  • Reason why I need an account: Saw a mistake in a MediaWiki message that hasn't been fixed in almost two months, so I figure I could be of some use. Obviously won't try to do anything that I don't know how to do. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 00:25, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Hi, thanks for your interest in an account. For one-off fixes we usually prefer if you could post the errors you notice at Foundation wiki feedback, could you do that or explain the mistake you noticed here please? Thehelpfulone 00:29, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Yep. Sure. wmf:MediaWiki:vector-view-viewsource has been changed to read "feedback"; presumably, this change was intended for the "discussion" tab message, or a related one, and therefore should be reverted. I'm fine with it if you'd prefer not to give me an account, then, though I'm sure I'll notice other things needing fixing as I periodically stumble onto foundationwiki. Sorry for not noticing the link to FWF in the notice on this page – I followed a link straight to the preload window. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 00:49, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
Done. Thanks for volunteering to help out.
Please note that the MediaWiki namespace is open to editing by any user on wikimediafoundation.org. Plus be very cautious when changing messages (pages in the MediaWiki namespace). In this case (with wmf:MediaWiki:vector-view-viewsource), it's not clear why it's no longer seemingly taking effect. You can always ask on a talk page or wmf:Project:Babel if you have any questions, particularly if you're unsure whether your change might damage the user interface. :-) --MZMcBride (talk) 02:42, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

JamesA

  • Projects where I'm involved: en.wikivoyage primarily, en.wikipedia
  • E-mail address: jamesjadams@live.com.au
  • Reason why I need an account: I'm an avid editor and administrator of Wikivoyage. Some of the content at the WMF wiki regarding Wikivoyage is a little bare or out-of-date, so I'd like to be able to update it as someone who's knowledgeable about the project. I also come across small errors every now and again, such as one I pointed out here and another one I just found at foundation:Our_projects#Wikivoyage. JamesA (talk) 01:07, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
    • Sure, done. Thanks for volunteering to help out. --MZMcBride (talk) 03:22, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

  • E-mail address: djgwiki@gmail.com
  • Reason why I need an account: Would find it helpful to have a watchlist for the Foundation wiki so I can keep my eye on a few pages. I promise not to touch anything I shouldn't. --Deskana (talk) 17:34, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

  • E-mail address: moe_epsilon@yahoo.com
  • Reason why I need an account: It would be helpful to have a userpage for the foundation website so I can look in on some things, looking to be more active in other roles. Regards, — Moe Epsilon 02:16, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
    • Sure, done. wikimediafoundation.org doesn't get much vandalism, so you may find yourself a bit bored, but there's plenty to do. :-) --MZMcBride (talk) 03:00, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Puppybarf

  • Projects where I'm involved: w:it:Special:Contribs/Puppybarf
  • E-mail address: puppybarf@tiscali.it
  • Reason why I need an account: I'm an active contributor expecially on Wikipedia and Wiktionary (Italian versions), and I'll be able to translate from English to Italian. Puppybarf (talk) 01:31, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
    • I was a little uneasy due to your username ("Puppy barf") and the lack of a user page here (or on your home wiki). Plus your account was created rather recently (in 2012). But... we always need translation help and none of your editing seems particularly problematic. Plus nearly all wmfwiki accounts are inactive, so I doubt you'll do anything too crazy. Okay. --MZMcBride (talk) 03:47, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Reason why I need an account: I always wanted to be in the WP foundation and it's work when I started editing WP. And also I'm very active in English Wikipedia and a trusted user. I translated an help project to bengali, also working on four. So I think I won't do bad at foundation wiki. What do you think? Any question? Ask me freely. --Pratyya (Hello!) 16:54, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Hannibal

  • Projects where I'm involved: w:sv:User:Hannibal, w:en:User:Hannibal, commons:User:Hannibal
  • E-mail address: lennart@wikimedia.se
  • Reason why I need an account: I have created Scribus files that need to be uploaded to the WMF wiki rather than Commons, and according to a discussion on Bugzilla, this was the best way to make sure that things are credited correctly. For more information on the specific files, see the Bugzilla link. --svHannibal (talk) 13:50, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
    • I just checked that bug and the file appears to have been uploaded by Odder. Do you still require an account on WMF wiki? Thehelpfulone 15:51, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
      • Well, not really. Thanks anyway. I can always apply again if the need should arise again.//svHannibal (talk) 20:24, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
    • As a Wikimedia chapter person and long-time trusted Wikimedian, it's no problem for you to have an account on wikimediafoundation.org. Done. --MZMcBride (talk) 20:54, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Reason why I need an account: Because I want to participate in Wikimedia Foundation. --Ashuyadav974 (talk) 14:03, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
    • Because you do not hold administrator rights on any Wikimedia Foundation, and because I don't see a valid reason for this request, it will almost certainly be declined. Meanwhile, if you have feedback about this wiki, please feel free to post at foundation wiki feedback.--Jasper Deng (talk) 23:20, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
    • Sorry, this request is too premature. You don't seem to have a firm grasp of editing on Wikimedia wikis quite yet. Feel free to re-request an account in a year or two. --MZMcBride (talk) 18:14, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

      • Thanks for volunteering to translate! Until the translation extension is installed on the Foundation wiki, translation work is done here on Meta-Wiki so that many people can collaborate and so that pages can be proofread before being published. Therefore, you do not need an account on the Foundation wiki to help with translations. You can start translating right now by looking at the current translation requests. Urgent fixes can be submitted to the feedback page. Philippe (WMF) (talk) 20:44, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Reason why I need an account: Someone told me that I should apply for an account for further technical maintenance work. --Liangent 15:45, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
While we love people who are willing to help out, requests for accounts to do unspecified "maintenance work" are typically not going to be approved. If there are specific projects upon which you wish to work, please let me know and we can re-evaluate. Thank you! Philippe (WMF) (talk) 13:03, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
Liangent is an active MediaWiki developer. You should be grateful he's offering to help with technical maintenance of the site. Please approve this request. --MZMcBride (talk) 20:23, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
I would be very happy to approve the request, in keeping with the published rules here, once he points out specific projects upon which he wishes to work. We don't pass out accounts except on an "as needed" basis. If there are specific tasks that he wishes to do, I absolutely support that and will happily approve it. I see nothing in my review to demonstrate that he would be anything but a net asset, but one of the reasons for the recent actions was to clean up the number of inactive accounts, and approving accounts that don't have a stated purpose flies in the face of that. Philippe (WMF) (talk) 20:28, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Excuse me? You wrote "... but one of the reasons for the recent actions was to clean up the number of inactive accounts ..." Can you please explain what you're talking about here? --MZMcBride (talk) 23:07, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

  1. Improve pages like This one.
  2. Translate interfaces to zh, zh-yue, zh-hant and zh-hans.--Gabrielchihonglee (talk) 09:56, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Translations are generally not a valid reason to request an account, since they are done on Meta. I don't see a clear reason why you need an account; "improve pages" is not specific enough.--Jasper Deng (talk) 16:53, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Interface is translated @ https://translatewiki.net/ not locally. --Jeremyb (talk) 03:16, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
    • Just as a point of clarification, it doesn't seem that the Foundation is interested (at least not at present) in translating their wiki - I've been trying to chase them up since at least February, but have not received response. Thehelpfulone 05:55, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
