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). It's a pity, since it could have been merged to my global account if phab:T16416 had been resolved by then.
      • 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 with my global account, even though it had no edits and will never have). 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.
      • Requested merge on 18 October 2015, but was not possible at the time.




Dependency graph:

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)
