Switch Logo to sd.wikinews.org?[edit]

Sindhi

  • for the sd.wikinews.org, please switch logo. The proposed one is here:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Sd_wikinews_logo.png (how can i protect it? coz at sd.wikinews upload is disabled) http://sd.wikinews.org/wiki/Image:Sd_wikinews_logo.png (the page is protected) I can't upload files because uploading is disabled. Thanks Alixafar 18:11, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Using Checkuser Privileges for "Dragnet" purposes[edit]

This seems to be happening now at Wikinews[1].

  • About 4 of the requested user names were found to be in a different country; the other 10 or so were anons in Toronto. The person with Checkuser privilege, CSpurrier, reported information to the community about an alltogether different user "Factchecker" (for which there was no request at all for the use of checkuser) which he came upon during his check of the anons. There seems to be little if any actual vandalism involved and the checkuser requester, Amgine, has had an ongoing feud with the supposed sockpuppeteer,Neutralizer, who he recently blocked for 3 weeks. Can this apparently blatant abuse of the checkuser privilege be stopped? 70.50.76.209 23:43, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
Upon further research it seems that the "infraction" committed by the majority of the anons who were subjected to Checkuser was this edit which they placed on Amgine's talk page in an attempt to disclose what they felt was an unbecoming edit by an Admin which had been erased from Wikinews' history;

What Amgine said about Australians [2] "Simeon edits from Australia, a continent populated entirely by criminals! And, as a criminal he would expect that we would not trust him, so obviously we cannot drink from the glass in front of us.."- Amgine/talk 03:54, 11 May 2005 (UTC). 70.50.76.209 00:05, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

I think it is time to commission a special group mandated to explore reports of abuse.... Anthere 10:04, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

I've been thinking that a Checkuser Commission operating under the auspices of the Board would be a good idea, as well. Kelly Martin 13:15, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
Let's do that ! Anthere
Why not use stewards? They are all checkusers and they are already a commision. --Cool CatTalk|@ 19:11, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
Perhaps. I think, though, we want people who are more responsible to the Board, and the members of the commission should be selected (or at least approved) by the Board; stewards are not subject to Board assent or consent. Kelly Martin 19:14, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
Oh, brother. What Anthere may not realize but which I expect most English-speaking nerds to know is that Amgine is quoting a movie. And the Wikinews situation is investigating a long-term pattern of abuse; I don't have a problem with its current use there. Mindspillage (spill yours?) 19:22, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
Do not worry :-) I did not know it was a movie, but I suspected there was something as an explanation, as I could not perceive Amgine saying this seriously ;-) The issue is more general. The board regularly receives some complaints about checkuser activity (and I presume later we'll also receive some about oversight), and what happened is either that no one look at the case, or look at them poorly. In 95% of case, the "abuse" is imaginary; but we can not be sure that one day there will not be a problem. So, what I suggest is a sort of ombuds-wo-man for checkuser/oversight, who will take charge of investigating cases for the board in an official manner, and will report to the board in case where there IS a problem. Additionnaly, this person might have a sort of "overview" over the way the whole system works and may give us suggestions of suitable modifications of policies. Or recommandations of software changes. This sort of things. No, it should not be done by the overall pool of stewards for the reasons Karynn suggested. Also, we need to have one or two people specifically named, so as to be *sure* a case is taken into consideration (as opposed to "but I thought someone else was taking care of this").

Logo contests[edit]

Hi!

Since you were one of the finalists of the International logo contest, I thought you might be interested in the contests for a new logo for Wiktionary and for a logo for Incubator. Hoping to see some great contributions from you! =] —Nightstallion (?) 09:50, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

New languages[edit]

The more I look at this stuff the less sure I am of what you really wanted. I just pulled together a basic assement of what seems to exist on the subject. I don't think I missed much but if you remember things existing that are not listed let me know and I will do some further research. In any event I put what I did at User:BirgitteSB/sandbox. Let me know if you want a different direction on it or an actual evaluation which would take some more time.--BirgitteSB 01:41, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Fundraising committee[edit]

Greetings! I have been tasked by the board of the Wikimedia Foundation to select the initial membership of the newly-created Fundraising committee. Your qualifications in this area have convinced me that you would be a perfect candidate for membership. If you accept this nomination, then please remove the 'drafted' that follows your name on Fundraising committee. If you would instead prefer to be an advisor, consultant, volunteer or not involved at all, then please move or delete your name accordingly. Thank you. --Daniel Mayer 04:11, 19 June 2006 (UTC)


Copyvios at the Russian Wikiquote[edit]

Hello, Anthere.

Yesterday Russian Wikiquote has received the following message.

Its rough translation is the following: 10 July. Fact of thievery of a great proportion is found on Wikiquote. The texts of 632 pages from site www.foxdesign.ru/aphorism/ are being used in 427 articles of Wikiquote. Detailed list of stolen pages can be found at www.foxdesign.ru/aphorism/plagiarism.html The thief who placed those texts as if they're his own is bureaucrat Andeus (Andrey Nikolaevich Prokopenko). Please remove ALL stolen texts and remove mr. Andeus from the list of Wikiquote’s authors. Elena Lavrentsova, author of aphorisms and quotes collection at www.foxdesign.ru/aphorism/

Today it was repeated at WP.

Quick look at the claim shows that a lot of quotes are PD (authors have died long ago), while some others are not. However, quotes are seem to be really taken from this site (or, to the contrary, this site have “borrowed” it from WQ). What shall Wikiquote’s community do? Does this really means violation of database rights? Shall PD quotes be removed too? What about Andeus?

Message with claims has been reposted to WQ’s community portal, but there is no discussion yet.

Thanks in advance, MaxSem 16:23, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

P.S.: I’m not involved in Wikiquote, I’ve been asked to help by another contributor who’s less involved in Meta and whose English is even worse.

Request for an account on the Foundation[edit]

Hallo Anthere, I already applied for it in the past and you approved to me [1] but I didn't get any mail from you. How to log in? Do you set a temp password for me...or? Can you please help me....my mail once again is khals[at]gmx.de. Thanks --Oxydo 21:00, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Request for Chechuser on hu-wiki revisited[edit]

Dear Anthere,

Approximately three months ago, a fellow administrator from the Hungarian Wikipedia requested Jean-Christophe, that he set the checkuser status for one of our contributors, User:KovacsUr, see User talk:Jean-Christophe Chazalette#Request for Chechuser on hu-wiki. By now we have collected the minimally required 25 confirming votes [3], so I'd like to repeat that request again, I hope this time there is nothing to prevent the completion of the procedure.

Thanks in advance,

--Dhanak 12:32, 17 July 2006 (UTC)


Hello Dhanak.

The right place to make the request is here.

Thanks and good luck (do not abuse the tool ;-))

What must admin do with disputed photo?[edit]

There is a photo on Russian Wikipedia: ru:Изображение:CableCarPassengersGelendzhik05Jul2006.jpg.

It was made by "Olimp" company that serves cable-way represented on the photo.

ru:User:Mithgol_the_Webmaster says that "Olimp" company delegated exclusive rights on this photo and confirm that by Quicktime video, where company representative verbally says that he in the name of company delegate exclusive right to ru:User:Mithgol_the_Webmaster.

But accordingly to Russian copyright laws such delegation must be drawn as written contract, so license status of this photo is unclear. I consider we (I mean, Wikipedia) actually have no rights to publish that photo. By the way, Russian copyright laws does not provide so called "fair-use" of copyrighted media.

I sayed that if in 7 days the documents about rights delegation will not be shown, then I will delete that photo because of its copyrighted status. Then bureaucrat ru:User:Drbug arised and sayed that he will not allow deletion of that photo.

So, I need to know stewards' (your) opinion about this case.

What do you think about this? --Jaroslavleff 09:31, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Dear Anthere, I don't know exact intentions of Mr. Jaroslavleff, and why he wishes to compromise me, but I feel it necessary to defend my honor and cite my own words: "Если хочешь - выноси на суд общественности. Самовольно удалять крайне не рекомендую." (in Russian); translation: "If you wish, you would introduce it to the community for judgement. I strogly do not recommend you to delete it on your own sole discretion." It is my advice, and it does not matter at all whether I'm bureaucrat or not. As for the image, I have already started a discussion at Commons wiki Village Pump] (the situation is not as easy as stated by Mr. Jaroslavleff, he is not a lawyer, and so I suppose the discussion will long some time and may lead to some significant changes in Ru Wiki policies), and I'm planning to start it later in Ru Wiki. Also I would like to mention, that the discussed image is not mine. Thank you for understanding. Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 10:41, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

commented on what I think (hope) I understood on commons. We may wish to ask a lawyer opinion on this. Anthere

I have answered you and fully described the situation. --Jaroslavleff 06:51, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

User Group Rights Change for Persian wiki/ Page creation restricted to logged in Users[edit]

Hi Anthere:

Persian wikipedia has had a big problem of copyright violation by anonymous users (IP's) for a long time. This is partly due the fact that Iran has not signed international copyright agreement and the contributors (being mostly from Iran) are not much "copyright aware". Currently there are 3.5 active sysops and a big chunk of their time is spent deleting/tagging copyright vios (a big part being New pages) by IP's.

Of course once people decide to stay longer and create accounts it is easier to track them and tell them about Copyright vios.

We had a formal poll. Almost all active users and all the sysops (except one who is absent) voted for the change: fa:ویکی‌پدیا:نظرخواهی پیرامون قابلیت ایجاد صفحه‌ای تازه توسط کاربران ثبت‌نام‌نکرده

I talked to Angela before and she suggested I talk to you and bring some official poll results with me, and here I am. Can you do something about this?

My user page on Persian Wikipedia is fa:user:Behaafarid

Behaafarid 23:31, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

answer on fa page. Anthere 11:14, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
errr, no. Here. This is one of these wiki where I have it hard to find where to click ;-) I regret a bit that decision, but I understand your specific situation. If Angela is fine with the move to restricted page creation, I am fine as well. In this case, drop a word to Brion (brion at wikimedia.org) to ask for the switch. I hope it helps fighting vandalism (and maybe you'll switch back to open creation later ? :-)) Anthere
Have set this. --brion 22:27, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Account[edit]

Hay. I have been abscent a while, and so I forgot to check the "Request for an account on the Foundation site" page. I checked the archive, and you accepted my request. So I checked my mail archives, but I have not got any mail from you around the day you accepted my request (10 may). Is this a mistake? Kind regards, (empoor) 19:15, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

yes, probably a mistake. The system frequently bugs. You are not the first one to have a problem. But, I am no more taking care of setting up accounts. This is the responsability of the communication committee, in the person of Michael Snow. I suppose you know him. You should ask Michael directly and say you were already approved. Cheers Anthere
Oke, thank you! – (empoor) 23:08, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Faute dans la confirmation d'e-mail[edit]

Salut,

Bon je débarque comme ça à l'improviste, mais je ne sais pas du tout où poster mon problème donc je te le dis et tu en fais ce que tu veux (si tu pouvais me dire ce que tu en fais - par exemple exactement où il faut reporter les erreurs de ce genre - ce serait super !)

Donc, je me suis créé un compte sur méta et voici le mail de confirmation qu'il m'envoie :

Quelqu'un, probablement vous avec l'adresse email xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, a enregistré
un compte « Chtit draco » avec cette adresse de courriel sur le site Meta.

L'erreur se trouve dans le premier paragraphe, où il est mis "avec l'adresse e-mail" suivie de l'IP... (j'ai caché la mienne ici bien entendu). Il faudrait changer adresse e-mail en adresse IP (voire IP tout court).

Donc voilà j'espère que tu sauras quoi faire.

Stewards on IRC[edit]

Hi, I am posting this to the talk page of all stewards. I am user:Walter, steward. It came to the attention that it is for users who urgently need the assistance of a steward it is not always easy to find one. I am posting this to ask your help to try to improve our service to the community.

The best hope I believe for a user to find a steward is IRC I think. There is a channel for the stewards , #wikimedia-stewards but there very few stewards there mostly if any.

So my first request is that when you are online and have time to also open the channel #wikimedia-stewards That can easy and even automatically depending of your IRC-client. Two suggestions; Gaim, you can add IRC-channels and users between your MSN, Jabber and other contacts. Very easy to use. Or chatZilla, more a real IRC program.

You can also use a webbased solution. Can also be useful when you are not at home. The IRC gateway I have setup will do its work for this purpose. http://chat.wikizine.org.

Finaly; You have your real name, your wikimedia user name and some have a totally different IRC name. I have created a new column on Stewards#Active_stewards to fill in your IRC-nick , if you are on IRC offcource. I have already filled it in for some who I know.

This request is not personally direct to you but to all stewards in general. Not everybody needs to be in that IRC -channel. If you know the channel exists that is already a very good start. Greetings, --Walter 20:36, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Je suis surpris que tu m'adresses une question en anglais. Ou bien tu poses la même question à tous les candidats à la manière dont on envoie une circulaire. Ou bien tu me l'adresses personnellement et je ne vois en rien ce qui justifie que tu t'adreses à un francophone en anglais. Résultat : je ne comprends pas parfaitement ni immédiatement ta question. Je dois la relire, chercher dans le dictionnaire certains mots - le dictionnaire ne m'éclaire pas toujours - et même si je suis revenu trois fois dessus, je suis toujours embarassé pour répondre.

self checkuser[edit]

Salut Anthere,

je suis en train d'étudier la faisabilité d'un système de listes électorales sur :fr. J'ai lu la page Checkuser et je me demande si il serait possible de modifier la règle pour dire un truc du genre:

"For the purpose of voter registration, a user can request a checkuser on him/herself. In the particular case of selfchecking, the user would then be listed on a "selfchecked user" page with a checkmark next to its name, and no IP or other personal information would be displayed. If a user fails the checkuser (sockpuppet or other reason), the local wikipedia rules apply as to how to handle the failed check for the purpose of the vote registration"

Un peu dans l'esprit de "edit count" ou on met "i agree to show my editcount" dans son historique on pourrait rajouter la necessiter de mettre "i agree for a selfcheckuser" dans son historique.

Qu'en penses tu? Fabwash 18:38, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

euh. Mais, que l'on précise que l'on accepte le checkuser, soit... mais d'une part, il faudra toujours une personne pour faire le check et l'ip d'une personne évolue... (souvent). Je ne comprend pas tout à fait ta requète.

Par contre, as tu déjà vu comment le système des élections pour le board fonctionnait ? Les personnes ayant acces au stats "boardvote" peuvent voir les comptes ayant voté avec une ip similaire si j'ai bien compris. Anthere

Salut Anthere, merci pour ta réponse. En fait je parle du vote sur :fr, pour le CAr ou PàS par exemple (à définir quels votes sont soumis à une liste électorale). L'idée en fait c'est que par exemple, si je souhaite voter à l'élection de quelqu'un pour le comité d'arbitrage, je sois inscrit sur une liste d'electeurs, comme le font la plupart des pays du monde. Donc:

  1. Je vais sur la page pour m'inscrire, je dois avoir un minimum de x contributions (e.g. 50) pour pouvoir m'inscrire comme votant.
  2. Je dis "ok pour faire un checkuser sur moi"
  3. Le checkuser est fait par l'un ou l'une de ceux qui ont l'accès
  4. L'utilisateur est validé comme n'ayant pas de faux nez et est donc validé sur la liste électorale en tant que votant et peut donc voter partout sur :fr.

Dans ce cas, il n'y a pas divulgation des informations retrouvées par le checkuser. Evidemment si un checkuser n'est pas validé, il faut définir une règle, mais ma première demande serait de voir s'il est possible de modifier checkuser pour accepter ce genre de demande? Tout celà pourrait grandement aider à éviter les faux nez et les trucs du style "il faut 50 ans d'existence sur WP et 3 millions de contributions pour pouvoir voter.".

Bon, techniquement, il n'y a rien à changer (je pense que tu es d'accord ?). Donc, la seule question est, peut on utiliser le système d'un point de vue "règle". En ce qui me concerne, je note qu'il n'y a pas de violation de la privacy policy, d'autant que les utilisateurs donne autorisation au check. Il faudrait qu'ils donnent aussi explicitement autorisation à se faire "virer" s'ils ne respectent pas les règles du vote (puppets). Certes, cela ne rentre pas dans l'usage initial, mais j'ai beau réfléchir, si la communauté est okay avec cet usage ET les checkusers aussi... pourquoi pas ? Soyons créatifs. Anthere

Merci de ta réponse, je ne suis pas sur que ça puisse marcher mais j'avais besoin de ton avis sur la violation de privacy avant de commencer de travailler sur une possibilité de liste electorale en utilisant le checkuser. Merci et je te tiens au courant si j'ai tout à coup une idée géniale (ca peut prendre du temps) :D Fabwash 21:20, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
Il me semble clair que le but de l'interdiction de principe du chek user volontaire telle qu'exprimée actuellement dans les règles est d'empêcher qu'un contributeur soit harcelé pour demander lui-même un checkuser qui ne rentre pas dans le cadre strict du checkuser "forcé". L'hypothèse que tu envisages est effectivement complètement différente.
(intervention qui fait suite à un sujet sur les possibles excès de checkuser sur le Bulletin des administrateurs) Bradipus 01:11, 21 August 2006 (UTC) (Bradipus Bla sur fr:WP)

Apparemment seuls Danny et Essjay on des accès boardvote pour faire la verification des IP, donc ce n'est pas plus automatique; boardvote en plus faut l'installer et ca me parait lourd pour des elections hors conseil d'administration.

Policies by Wikimedia[edit]

At Russian WP we're having a long and glorious flame war around adoption of several policies from en:. Could you specify which of them are official at the fouldation level and need not to be approved locally: what Wikipedia is not, verifiability, reliable sources, biographies of living people? MaxSem 08:19, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Same for cs. I am highly interested at that aswell. — Timichal • 08:34, 26. Aug 2006

I'd suggest that "what wikipedia is not" is a rather general policy (though, some light differences exist here and there. For example, french wikipedia accepts pretty widely cooking recipees, the english not). It is not really a policy, it is the scope of the project. THe english reference is pretty much the widely accepted reference.

I do not really know the en.wiki verifiability policies. I would say that reseonably, each community should organise itself the way this is done. Reliable sources should not be a rule, but an evidence... Biographies are probably something to decide locally. Overall, I'd say all the rules you cite (verifiability, biographies, sources) are all things to set up locally within reason. I'd say "use the english ones" as a model, but do not try to "copy" them. Make your own. Anthere

Thanks. MaxSem 09:14, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

CVU logos and their presence on wikipedia[edit]

There is an ongoing debate about the status of CVU logos on a number of locations:

If the cvu logos violate WMF's copyrights so should a vast majority of images on commons:Category:CopyrightByWikimedia, and w:Category:CopyrightByWikimedia.

Perhaps revising the policy to at least excude images that were created prior to the establishment of the Wikimedia visual identity guidelines or perhaps loosen up the guidelines restrictions when images are used on wikipedia (since the admin mop for instance realy isnt problematic IMHO).

Thanks.

Est ce que cette phrase que j'ai écrit : "N'est ce pas là l'un des but de la fondation : être le représentant légal de wikipédia france" est fausse ou vraie ou entre les deux ? Merci.

I track functionaries on en.wiki. Did you intend your checkuser status there to be permanent? Cheers, NoSeptember 23:18, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
