Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Fridae'sDoom, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing! Mercy 08:12, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi everyone[edit]

While I do check Meta-wiki from time to time I will respond to requests faster on enwiki, here's my talk page on enwiki. Fridae'sDoom 11:07, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Are you sure that this message is necessary? It is directed to the IP or to any other user? As you can see on the link above, the IP was not used yet and we shouldn't suppose that it will used to vandalism. In my opinion, a welcome message would be more proper and any message not related with that IP shouldn't be left there. This IP can be used one day for a good faith user and would be weird to him/her reading that message. What do you think?” TeleS (T PT @ C G) 03:50, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Good point, but the IPs we use are dynamic so I thought in adding that notice I would make it clear it was a shared IP, I'll revert this message and welcome instead. Thanks and regards, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм | Champagne? 12:02, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for understanding. If it is shared it can be used by good faith users too. You surely know how it works since you have an ipblock-exempt flag. I also use dynamics IP and I already received some messages for vandalism that "I" have made. I know that it is not directed to me, but maybe a new user don't and feel intimidated by the message. Regards.” TeleS (T PT @ C G) 02:22, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
Understood, I only have IP Block exemption on Enwiki not globally so I am affected by global blocks, I couldn't post any messages on Meta due to the vandalism coming from my ip. Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм | Champagne? 05:03, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Travel guide[edit]

These explain how one gets to where they wish to go and how to stay alive while there rather than where to go in the first place. Agree that if the project becomes more successful POV concerns will need to be addressed more fully. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 01:09, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

I still don't see how that falls under the Foundation's remit, though. It's a waste of resources, surely one can easily look-up these places on enwiki? —Ancient Apparition 07:29, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Thehelpfulone 22:01, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
  • When? June 2015
  • How can you help?
    1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
    2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
    3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.


Thanks, and happy editing!

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 31 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation
