I have an account on several Wikimedia projects, but I'm mostly active (and an administrator) on the English and Portuguese Wikipedias, and in Commons. I'm also a board member of Wikimedia Portugal and a volunteer at OTRS and in I've participated on Wikimania 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2013, as well as Wikimedia hackathons in 2012, 2013 and 2014. I also had a toolserver account (though I didn't get around to actually implement any tools there), participate regularly in bug report discussions, and have obtained developer access to the Wikimedia code repository, with a few patches merged so far.

Information non-related to Wikimedia can be found in my website Here are some pictures of me.

Contribs on all wikimedia wikis[edit]

Summary: +70k edits total (main wikis: +28k @ commons, +17k @ enwiki, +11k @ ptwiki)

First contribution[edit]

  • There's no log entry of my first Wikipedia account creation, but the first edit that I have record of is from 02:39, 2 February 2005 (uploaded this image)
  • Evidence that I edited throughout 2005 without logging in: [1]
  • Hmm. Upload log says my account there was created on 02:58, 2 February 2005, but the User list says my account was created on 03:02, 2 February 2005. What gives?
    • Well, the User contributions says my first edit was indeed on 03:02, 2 February 2005, and that was either my first edit (not a log action such as an upload) or my first non-deleted action (at the time the estimate was made). In any case, this point is worth raising in the relevant bugs.

User page[edit]

* = Not on the WMF servers: moved to
  • To do:
    • add {{#babel:kea|pt|en-3|es-1|xx-0}}, where xx = lang code of the wiki
    • Change prefs: gender = male | interface language = english | email on watchlist changes = yes | email on user talk messages = yes
    • Add global.js (global.css is already done). Documentation here
    • Merge my Wikimania2007 account
      • I was invited on April 30 and the User:Waldir account was registered on May 16.
      • Someone once confirmed me (through IRC, I believe) that the email address associated with the User:Waldir account was not, so it likely wasn't me
      • Indeed, apparently all my edits were done anonymously
      • On February 2015, the User:Waldir account was renamed to User:Waldir (usurped)
      • So, apparently the User:Waldir account won't be created because the wm07 wiki is now closed (I suppose the existing one was usurped just to prevent confusion, even though it had no edits). I wonder if IP edits can be reattributed to an account, though. That'd be neat :´)
    • I tried (2015-07-16) renaming my global account to waldyrious, to harmonize my usernames across online platforms
      • It turns out I already had created that account on eswiki back in 21 November 2006, 19:15 UTC (it became a global account, albeit without automatically created accounts on other wikis, on 17 April 2013, 21:50 UTC).
      • Because of this, automatic rename wasn't possible. I will have to wait for the global account merge tool to request a merge here.
      • Meanwhile, as I logged in to that account today (2015-07-16), it automatically created 16 other accounts connected to the global one. No idea why the remaining ones weren't created too.

Random stuff[edit]

  • DynamicPageList and Help:DPL
  • Wishful thinking: Some projects should be renamed:
    • For consistency (so they're all in the form "Wikisomething"):
      • Wikimedia Commons → Wikicommons (actually, this should be called Wikimedia, and the foundation... perhaps Wikicontent?
      • Mediawiki → Wikiware (or Wikihost, or Wikisite). Also, a different logo, please! "the sunflower represents the diversity of content on Wikipedia, the constant growth and also the wildness." -- not intuitive at all!
    • For clarity:
      • Wikibooks → Wikiguides (or Wikimanuals), and perhaps merged with Wikiversity;
      • Wikisource → Wikiarchive (or Wikilibrary)
      • Wikivoyage → Wikiplaces (or Wikilocal)
