Ktr101

  • Projects where I'm involved: w:en:link
  • E-mail address: Ktr101@hotmail.com
  • Reason why I need an account: It would be easier fixing tiny things such as grammar or making sure that edits to the Board page that remove people have the material archived. It's no big loss if I don't get this, but I have wanted to make a few changes over the years (including a request to Juliet tonight for one), and I had no idea until now that it was possible to request an account, which would make it easier to fix minor issues that I may run across. --Kevin Rutherford (talk) 01:51, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
@Ktr101: Most probably you forgot to link your userpage where you are active. ~ Nahid Talk 22:09, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
@Nahid: Thanks for that, as I was doing it on the fly. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 19:28, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Omni Flames[edit]

  • Projects where I'm involved: w:en:User:Omni Flames, w:simple:User:Omni Flames
  • E-mail address: OmniFlamesWikipedia@gmail.com
  • Reason why I need an account: Admittedly I'm not a sysop on any Wikimedia project at the moment, nor am I affiliated with the Wikimedia Foundation. However, the main reason I'm requesting this right is because I've made a number of requests ([1][2][3]) to update this page, and none of these requests have been actioned upon or even replied to. If I had an account, I'd like to update this page and other statistics, respond to requests here and fix typos and other grammatical errors. Thanks, Omni Flames (talk) 09:35, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

I am a education sector person mean (ICT in Education) i will some contribute after account create in educational purpose in wiki foundation thanks Nawaraj Ghimire (talk) 15:51, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Hello Nawaraj Ghimire - Are you sure you need to do this on Foundation wiki? It sounds like this is best done here on Meta-Wiki. Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 15:06, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Guy Macon[edit]

  • Projects where I'm involved: w:en:User:Guy Macon
  • E-mail address: foundationwiki@guymacon.com
  • Reason why I need an account: I intend to run for election as a community-chosen member of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees, and would like to be able to put certain past resolutions and current discussions on my wikimediafoundation.org watchlist. I don't anticipate having any need to edit any pages on wikimediafoundation.org other than perhaps answering questions posted on my talk page. --Guy Macon (talk) 22:02, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Hi Guy Macon – unfortunately I'm not sure your use case meets the requirements for an account on the Foundation wiki at this point in time. We are reconsidering how accounts are activated on the Foundation's wiki in the future, though, so I'll get back to you if the policy changes. (In any case, very little discussion actually takes place on Foundation wiki :) ) Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 21:23, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Joe Sutherland (WMF), since I only want to log in in order to be able to watchlist pages containing board resolutions, would it be possible to create the account and immediately apply a user-requested indef block? I believe that this would also allow me to set my preferences -- it is annoying having things like my preferred date format change when I read a page at wikimediafoundation.org. --Guy Macon (talk) 17:02, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
See Resolutions. I don't think Accounts should be crated for such reasons on foundationwiki. best --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:38, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

JSutherland (WMF) sorry, I already have those account , now I want to create an wikimedia account, not bangla wikipedia or wibooks account.-শাহাদাত সায়েম (talk) 17:34, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
Hi again শাহাদাত সায়েম - the Wikimedia Foundation wiki is actually kept mostly read-only, now—it doesn't work like the other Wikimedia projects. What are you planning to do on the Foundation's wiki? :) Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 17:17, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Hi Rutusha89 - I'm not sure I understand. Accounts on Wikimedia projects don't have "display pictures". Could you please clarify what you mean? Thanks! Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 14:18, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

    @JSutherland (WMF): Since it appears that you patrol this. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:50, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
    I am not responsible for granting/rejecting requests, but please note volunteers generally are not granted admin access on foundationwiki. This means you would not be able to help with this backlog even if this request were granted. --Vogone (talk) 17:53, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
    Hey Koavf - unfortunately, Vogone above is right; volunteers aren't currently allowed to be administrators on the Foundation wiki. I'm happy to let you know if and when that changes, though. Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 19:19, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
