Note about RfD[edit]

Don't forget to tag pages you put up for deletion with {{RFD}}. It'd suck if someone actually was still referring to either of those pages and found it suddenly gone without any notice. :)

Also, I noticed the "Messages will be responded to more swiftly" note at the top of this page. If you go into your Preferences, there's a checkbox for getting an email notification when your talk page is edited. It's a nice feature to use, so you don't have to keep checking here *just in case* you've gotten a message. EVula // talk // 14:51, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Ah sorry. I'll remember that for next time. Thanks, Anonymous DissidentTalk 14:52, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

IRC cloak request[edit]

I am AnonDiss on freenode and I would like the cloak wikimedia/Anonymous-Dissident. Thanks. ----Anonymous DissidentTalk 15:34, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Sysop rights[edit]

Hi Josh,

Per this request, consensus was reached and you are now a sysop. Congrats! Please be familiar with our policies before using your new tools, and please also add yourself to the sysop box. Thank you. Majorly (talk) 22:02, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Majorly, for the close and the nom! :) --Anonymous DissidentTalk 22:22, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

That deletion comment[edit]

Naughty but made me smile! Cheers --Herby talk thyme 09:55, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I guess it was a bit naughty, but I have an excuse - a broken redirect is useless! :P --Anonymous DissidentTalk 09:59, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

congrats and a gaffe?[edit]

Congrats on your adminship... Majorly beat me to promoting you. :) From your user page: "This user has made made 300+ edits to Meta." I think think something is wrong wrong with that. :) ++Lar: t/c 21:54, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Heh, thanks. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 07:47, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
Wouldn't that actually be "heh heh" ?? :) :) ++Lar: t/c 12:15, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
Heh heh probably probably.. :) :) --Anonymous DissidentTalk 12:23, 18 October 2007 (UTC) --Anonymous DissidentTalk 12:23, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Your recent test[edit]

I saw your reversion of yourself.[1] The effect will work just fine if you remove "display:none" from the first div tag. EVula // talk // 06:08, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Ahh, thanks much EVula. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 06:13, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Language box placement[edit]

Hello Anonymous Dissident. I see you moved the language box on Stewards below the note about the upcoming election. I think the language box should always be the first element on a page to improve accessibility for non-English readers. The reader should ideally be able to select his preferred language first, then read the translated notice.

Do you object to moving the language box back to the top? If necessary, the line about the upcoming elections can be emphasized a little more (such as with a border or bold text). —{admin} Pathoschild 15:49:31, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

I don't mind at all. Your idea seems very reasonable; I only moved it because I see it as that ephemeral messages should entirely precede the everlasting body of content. I really don't mind either way. Regards, --Anonymous DissidentTalk 20:41, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I'll move it back to the top. :) —{admin} Pathoschild 21:54:07, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 05:19, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Mechanical translation of notice[edit]

It was very wrong to create MediaWiki:Centralnotice-thanks/el with a mechanical translation. It would be better to leave it in english that to put a notice like that. A question to the greek village pump would provide a decent translation in a couple of minutes. Geraki TL 09:49, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Hi Anonymous Dissident, I wrote my complaint in RFC but probably nobody will solve this problem. Azeri wikipedia is speedly going down. User Uannis who was departed from turkish wikipedia is destroying all the article which I created last year. Admin AMD doesnt want to listen to me, he supports Uannis'e activity. Please read my request in RFC and help me. They all dont allow me to work and admin blocks me in every first word. It is impossible. Admin AMD feels himself like a Faraon. Azeri wikipedia really needs admin from wikimedia to watch all of this illegality. User Uannis sends the media files for deletion with blame of non-licensed. But you can watch all the pics which were tagged by me. I hope that you will help me in this case because I dont know where to request about it. Please tell this situation to all of other admins and sysops. Users Sortilegus, Ira, Bahar, Baki66, Memty can affirm my thoughts. You can ask to them.

Vusal1981 07:07, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

I am unsure of how to help you personally, but the RFC that you opened may be of some assistance. Regards, ----Anonymous DissidentTalk 03:58, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Template:GAOnHold[edit]

Deleted. This is not Wikipedia; it is Meta-Wiki. Please read Meta:About. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 07:22, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

It is (or was) used at Wikicommunity/Sample Shop as part of an illustration. Sarsaparilla 13:51, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Restored. Sorry for my mistake. Please, in future, make it clear the actual purpose of a template that looks like its just been imported straight from en-wiki. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 16:52, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

My successful request for adminship[edit]

Thank you for supporting my request for adminship with 28 supports unopposed.--Jusjih 00:54, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

thanks[edit]

Thank You, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 20:59, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

My pleasure. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 05:12, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

User:Anonymous Dissident/Matrix[edit]

There's a category for matrix pages, if you'd like to add it. See Category:Wikimedian matrices ~Kylu (u|t) 17:41, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 11:47, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Related note! I notice that on the category page, you added instructions on how to sort in-category in addition to the instructions I already had on-page. I'm curious, do you prefer to manually specify the sort-key (|A) over letting {{PAGENAME}} do it? I'd have thought that telling people "Put the following on the bottom of your matrix, exactly as shown: [[Category:Wikimedian matrices|{{PAGENAME}}]]" would be easier for newbies, since it wouldn't require quite as much understanding of such esoteric things as category sort options... or am I totally missing the point? ~Kylu (u|t) 04:39, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

I think your idea is likely much better, I just put down the way I do it. Please, feel free to alter it to the easier way. Cheers, --Anonymous DissidentTalk 06:56, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Info[edit]

As you blocked one - this might be of interest. Hope all is good - cheers --Herby talk thyme 14:50, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I see, I'll take a look into that. ----Anonymous DissidentTalk 02:57, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

®[edit]

Hey,

Do you know something I don't about the registering of "Wikimedia Australia" (and not just "Wikimedia") as a trademark? :) --pfctdayelise 15:00, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

That was the trademark sign? I thought it was wikimedia australia's logo.... please revert. :) --Anonymous DissidentTalk 15:35, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
Hm? I don't follow. pfctdayelise 15:06, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
I moved the sign (which I didn't know was the trademark) to an inappropriate place. It should have been left where ti was, hence I said that you were right and should revert. I'll do that now. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 06:08, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
Assuming that we are talking about the Wikimedia Australia page, it turns out that its not an ®, rather a special logo as I thought. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 06:10, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

ウィキペディア[edit]

Hi Anonymous Dissident,

I noticed you deleted the redirect ウィキペディア ("Wikipedia" in Japanese). Since it has several pages linking to it,[2] and there is currently no page (in Japanese) about Wikipedia on Meta, I think it is rather useful. Would you please restore it? Thanks, Korg 16:00, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

I re-created it. I noticed it since it was on my WL. Japanese community has considered it useful for years and I appreciate you respect the fact meta is not only of English speakers. --Aphaia 16:51, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
I'm very sorry, this was a technical mistake on my part, I was trying to remedy a triple redirect. I must have messed it up. Apologies. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 16:55, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
No problem, thank you. Korg 00:08, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Project portals[edit]

Hi, I'm not sure why you protected this page. It is useful as it lists the different portal pages, but it's not as important as the portal pages themselves, which must be protected since they contain raw HTML and they're in live use. Since this page has been edited by non-administrators and hasn't been vandalized recently, I do not think the protection is necessary. Best regards, Korg 17:27, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough. I just had it in mind that it would be somehow problematic to the code or something if it was vandalised. Why I thoguht that I can't imagine. >_< Unprotected. Cheers, --Anonymous DissidentTalk 00:36, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! Korg 01:43, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Please don't change election rules and information[edit]

Hello Anonymous Dissident. Please don't change the official elections rules and information. Every change triggers a large number of coordinated translation updates, and the change you introduced would require additional translation updates to remove it when the elections open next week. This is why the page is fully protected with a message asking administrators not to edit it.

If you'd like to suggest some changes, please add a message to the 2008 elections talk page and we'll deal with it as soon as possible. —{admin} Pathoschild 01:43:37, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

I am very sorry for my action. I forgot to consider the translative difficulties that would arise as a result of the new material. As an aside though, I think it would be prudent to add some kind of outstanding notice at that section, because, as it currently is, it could lead to confusions about whether votes are accepted, and when. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 01:47, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
That's a good point; I was hoping that the red box at the top of every page would prevent confusion:
The election has not begun. Votes will not be accepted.
The translation period for candidate statements is currently underway.
Do you think some readers are skipping the red box? —{admin} Pathoschild 04:47:47, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
There's always someone. It's good to have a general warning, but then a more assertive and severe one at the relevant section. As it is now, what with the instructions of how to vote etc., it could mislead those few people who don't read the red box. --Anonymous DissidentTalk 07:47, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
The election starts in a few days, so I think it's too late to add and translate the extra disclaimer. However, soon the boardvote software should be updated to tell voters when the election starts if they try to vote too early. —{admin} Pathoschild 03:59:26, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
