Re: Schulze method[edit]

Thanks for spotting my mistake. Feel free to strike my statement in the archive and correct it. The WMF election committee never revisited that decision, nor they ever consulted experts. They said they were too busy to check whether the system made sense, and they felt they were expert enough on their own (both arguments are ridiculous, of course). The Schulze method is still the most appreciated one, as it was originally chosen with quite wide agreement and reasoning; make sure to choose the correct variant, though. Alternatively, the French Wikipedia poll system uses w:Condorcet method, which is often considered easier to understand: you might consider it as alternative. Nemo 21:05, 28 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, of course Condorcet has its issues. They use it only for polls, which can only have one outcome oout of several options, if I remember correctly. Should be explained at w:fr:Aide:Prise de décision, no time to check now. Nemo 21:25, 28 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Note that for multiple winners there is w:Schulze STV, as Schulze in person wrote us at some point.[1] Nemo 10:10, 30 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Mentor for GSoC Project : Reading List[edit]

Hello! I am a second-year computer science student from India. I hope to work upon the project Reading List as a part of GSoC-2016[0]. I am being guided by Joaquin Oltra Hernandez and I have started gathering information on how the reading List looks like. As the project lacks one more mentor for getting selected for "Featured for GSoC" we require a community member who could shepered this process and as you are the one who proposed this idea, it would be great if you could co-mentor me.
Thanks! --Harithaharikumar

Plagiarism detection[edit]

Hi! You voted for improving plagiarism detection as an important suggestions in the community wishlist survey last year. I'm pinging people who showed interest in that task to tell them we have some suggestions for how things could look, if you'd like to glance at them and give us some feedback. They're available here: phab:T120435#2266283. It's easiest if comments are left in Phabricator, since that's where much of the development is happening, but they can be left on Meta too, of course. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 17:14, 13 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Cross-wiki watchlist[edit]

Hi! You voted for the cross-wiki watchlist as an important suggestions in the community wishlist survey last year. I'm pinging editors who showed interest in that task to tell them we have some suggestions for how things could look, if you'd like to glance at them and give us some feedback. You can find them on the project page on Meta. If you'd like to share any comments, you're very welcome to do so on the talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 00:48, 21 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]

2016 Community Wishlist Survey[edit]

Hi,

You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Global preferences ready for testing[edit]

Greetings,

I am contacting you because of your support for Global settings in the 2016 Community Tech Wishlist. Global preferences are now available for beta testing, and need your help before being released to the wikis.

  1. Read over the help page, it is brief and has screenshots
  2. Login or register an account on Beta English Wikipedia
  3. Visit Global Preferences and try enabling and disabling some settings
  4. Visit some other language and project test wikis such as English Wikivoyage, German Wiktionary, the Hebrew Wikipedia and test the settings
  5. Report your findings, experience, bugs, and other observations

Once the team has feedback on design issues, bugs, and other things that might need worked out, the problems will be addressed and global preferences will be sent to the wikis.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:52, 26 February 2018 (UTC)[reply]

JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)[edit]

Hi - according to our records you received a free account for JSTOR through The Wikipedia Library. Because we’ve used up all of our allocated accounts, and it’s been some time since they were distributed, we want to redistribute any accounts that aren’t being used to users on our waitlist.

If you’re still using, or plan to use, your JSTOR access, no problem! Simply head over to the Library Card platform, log in, and request a renewal of your account. You should be able to do this from your user page, or the JSTOR signup page. If you can’t find the renewal button, or have any other issues or questions about this, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. We’ll begin redistributing inactive accounts in September; if you request renewal after then we will only be able to reactivate your account if we have spots remaining. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:32, 20 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

The Community Wishlist Survey[edit]

Hi,

You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Community Wishlist Survey 2020[edit]

Hello!

You are getting this message because you've previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey, in either the Wikisource or Wiktionary categories. I wanted to let you know that this year's survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until November 11. Unlike previous years, we are only accepting proposals for non-Wikipedia content projects with no dedicated teams (i.e., Wikibooks, Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikiversity, Wikispecies, Wikivoyage, and Wikinews). You can learn more on the survey page.

You can vote on proposals from November 20 to December 2. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won't send out a separate reminder to you about that. We look forward to your participation. Thank you! IFried (WMF) (talk) 18:52, 22 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry for the misunderstanding[edit]

I waited for a while, I didn't want to come on too strong. I never intended to judge your speed. It was nothing but a comparison between doing something manually versus using a script. A bit of a flawed comparison as you also did some checks that a script couldn't do. Perhaps some clicks could be saved in a situation like that with a script, but probably not all of them, but that's something to maybe consider some other day, not now.

Considering all the steps and checks you went through, you actually did it rather fast! Face-smile.svg Please don't be mad. — Alexis Jazz (ping me) 16:51, 8 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, Alexis Jazz for the clarification. I'm not mad at you. I hope that you can edit at Commons again very soon. I already miss your sense of humor. Commons was a better and funnier place with you. BTW, have you ever noticed that you are the only non-Middle Eastern user whose uploads I review? See my userpage at Commons. 4nn1l2 (talk) 17:44, 8 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Disgrace happened[edit]

Hello.
I did not intend that officials from Western nations are entitled to [more] trust whatever they do in their rôle. Disgrace happens from time to time. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:50, 11 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hello Incnis Mrsi, thanks for the clarification. I hope to see you again at Commons. 4nn1l2 (talk) 00:18, 12 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

VPP[edit]

Can you keep an eye on COM:VPP to make sure threads/votes aren't silently archived without action? — Alexis Jazz (ping me) 23:47, 13 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Alexis Jazz: OK. 4nn1l2 (talk) 00:11, 14 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
In the next few days, "Proposal to implement blocking by abuse filters", "Maximum block length" and "Acceptance of files from external sources without a license review" may exceed the 30 day inactivity limit for archival. If you were waiting until the last day before taking action, ignore what I just said. Face-smile.svg Also that massive MP4 proposal should be dealt with some day. At a quick glance, it looks like proposal 2 won easily. (me and GMG expressed support for both 1 and 2, even though we didn't vote on 2) I suppose a Phabricator task could be created for that. — Alexis Jazz (ping me) 19:46, 15 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I will read the proposals and will close them. This may take some days. 4nn1l2 (talk) 21:11, 15 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. I see you already closed "Maximum block length". I think "Acceptance of files from external sources without a license review" is scheduled for archiving on 17 April around 3am (assuming no further replies) and "Proposal to implement blocking by abuse filters" on 19 April around 3am. (assuming no further replies) — Alexis Jazz (ping me) 22:26, 15 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I closed "Acceptance of files from external sources without a license review" too. 4nn1l2 (talk) 23:56, 15 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for the notice and I support your request, but I will first take issue with some of the procedural aspects of this report (even if some of the comments are too direct, I mean no offence here).——WMLO (talk) 17:58, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
