Wiki of Functions followup[edit]

Hi there, I'm a researcher for the Wikilambda project. Last month we held a naming contest and I'm following up with those who voted to see if you might be willing to provide some feedback to help guide the project.

This would be a 45 minute conversation about your past experience with other Wikimedia projects and thoughts about the future of this new initiative. I'm hoping to gather a wide range of perspectives so I'd be interested in your opinion regardless of whether you plan to have further involvement.

As a way of saying thanks, the research team is offering a $35 gift card (in your local currency) for participation. We could chat by phone or through a website for audio conferencing.

If you're interested just pick a time slot from this calendar link:

Hope to hear from you soon!

The Editing team has scheduled a major update to mw:Extension:DiscussionTools (the new Reply tool) for next week's deployment train. Since you invoke the feature from a script (I do, too), you're probably going to see that update next week, before it's officially released in the mw:Beta Feature system. The new update will use a similar system for starting a ==New discussion==. As before, full-page wikitext editing will not be affected. There is more information on the project page at mw:Talk pages project/New discussion.

If you encounter problems next week, please ping me or leave a note on the talk page for the project. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:50, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

barrier to usurpation[edit]

if a user account has 20 edits it can't be usurped but that user account was made for a institution 15 years ago.also why was my request hidden and who did it? Baratiiman (talk) 16:59, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

Baratiiman, Account age does not matter. If account has edit that is barrier. BTW those revisions were deleted because you accidentally edited that page without logging in so it disclosed your IP. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:09, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
  • tnx 4 reply isn't 20 edits a bit too little to abandon a account? , i made the wrong move using my name in Iranian wiki i edited pages about politics.Baratiiman (talk) 17:11, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
    Baratiiman, Ideally accounts with any edits are not usurped but we sometimes ignore the edits if they are in userspace or vandalism–both of which isn't the case here. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:15, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

Please Ublock me on Wikidata[edit]

@1997kB: Hi , Please unblock me on Wikidata which was done by @Jisper Dang ji due to multiple account, at the time I created your second account, my current account was not in my hand at that time only @MohitRajMohit was there, I joined Wikipedia It has been only five months now, I have been associated with Wikipedia for the purpose of making a good contribution on Wikipedia, I used to work only by creating articles and linking articles to Wikidata, I did not know any policy of Wikidata that I worked on Wikidata. Apologize for that, please understand my strength to offer me only one chance to repent, right now there are many articles that have to be linked to Wikidata but due to the block on Wikidata I cannot do this, you are requested to Give me only one chance. Thanks Karam06 (talk) 02:33, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi, excuse me according to Steward requests/Username changes#Wikistofer I submitted my first request for the wrong name. Please approve my request, Thanks. Wikistofer (talk) 11:32, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Request: Unblocking TemiTaiwo[edit]

Hi, 1997kb.

I'm a board member of the Youth SIG, from ISOC, and we are organizing a "Wikicontest" (like an edit-a-thon, but 2 weeks long) for beginners to learn how to get engaged in wiki platforms, namely Wikipedia and Wikidata.

user:TemiTaiwo is one of the participants, and you blocked her for spamming on Wikidata. I'm sure you did that for good reasons, but she was not spamming intentionally or being careless. She is actively trying to learn from other members and accepting all recommendations made to her, as we can see in her Talkpage. Could you give her a second chance for the duration of the contest (until tomorrow), and maybe leave her a message about what she needs to be careful about to avoid getting banned again, so she can gradually learn and maybe become an active member of the community?

Sorry for the inconvenience.

@Pperdiga: Hi, I don't see Temi blocked anywhere. Maybe she is facing an IP block which we apply to stop some bad guys. So if you or her can give me exact message, maybe I can help. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 00:06, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
@1997kB: Hmmm, I believe it was some kind of automatic or temporary block, since the issue was apparently gone when she tried to access the platform again. I'll check up with her and come back here if she is still facing any difficulty. Thanks anyway (: --Pperdiga (talk) 21:55, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Please Change my User name[edit]

Hi,@1997kB: I did not like your current name and I changed it two days ago. [[1]] But I still have my request pending, please accept my request to change my name and change my name.why? Global Renamer and Stewards doesn't change my user name at this time. Best Regards Rm1y5cx,03:24, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
