SVG Translate Community wishlist survey project

Hello! Thank you for voting for the SVG Translate project that was proposed in the 2017 Wishlist survey. The Community Tech team in the Wikimedia Foundation is beginning to start their work on the project. We're currently looking for feedback on some open questions which will allow us to come up with preliminary designs for the tool. If you are interested in being involved, you can watch the project page and join in the discussions on the talk page. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and learning from your experiences. Thank you. -- NKohli (WMF), Product Manager, Community Tech (talk) 21:53, 16 August 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Community Wishlist Survey


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) 11:25, 30 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request to steward

Hello. I've made a global rename request. Can you answer for me? Wishey (talk) 23:43, 27 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Wishey Your request is in the queue, and will be handled by a global renamer. Rename requests are typically handled oldest first, the backlog is about 10 days right now. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 23:51, 27 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi--can your delete this? it's so sad. Drmies (talk) 18:04, 6 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Drmies Sorry I didn't notice that, looks like 1234qwer1234qwer4 got it though. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 18:56, 6 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Either way--thanks! Poor Nate Speed: blocked for eight years and still not above this juvenile level. Drmies (talk) 21:03, 6 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Dear AntiCompositeNumber , I request you to semi-protect your My Usertalk on meta forever.since it is interwiki redirect, is it possible because i don't want any User to leave any message on my talk.Regards Aviram NoSurprisesPlease 02:17, 15 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Aviram7 I am a steward, but not a Meta administrator. Making that sort of protection would be outside of my role under the Meta:Meta–steward relationship. Please ask a Meta admin instead. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 02:20, 15 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks For Response Me Dear AntiCompositeNumber. Aviram NoSurprisesPlease 02:23, 15 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@AntiCompositeNumber: Sir I request you to unprotect hi:अलका नूपुर so that everyone (including IPs) can edit it. It needs additional citations to meet Wikipedia verification standards. Kindly also change the stable revision settings. Being a steward you can help me as none of local administrators is active. Thanking in anticipation. 12:40, 15 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That page was protected by a local administrator, and the wiki has three local administrators that have edited this week. Under the Stewards policy, stewards will not override decisions of local administrators except with consensus, in an emergency, or when there are no active local administrators. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 15:02, 15 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@AntiCompositeNumber: You are mistaken sir. The administrators have not edited since a week. And the reason for protecting was vandalism but vandal is now globally locked. Sir kindly do the requested. 15:08, 15 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is LTA User:Adam Chacko, and there is high probability that he will remove this message of mine from here. —Svārtava (t/u) • 15:33, 15 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sir, hi:User:लाल सिंह चड्ढा is a duck of hi:User:मनोज. Kindly block him ASAP. 17:00, 16 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Regard block me on English Wikipedia

I am tell you that I am blocked for accountcreation blocked, email disabled, cannot edit own talk page CU block for indefinite time. I was put a complain against a global renamer for misbehaving on Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents but the Administrator put me on block list on gross incompetence or trolling.My mistake was that I put complain without their diff because I was not aware of this. I have requested for unblock on my talk page but admin not put attaintion by replying that 'I don't know what I was thinking' {perhaps because I was not put block reason(only put unblock reason) on request because I was not read unblocking guideline.} Than I requested to unblock on UTRS but It showing message that I have already put request.

Unblock reason- I was not read guideline for complain on Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents

Block reason-gross incompetence or trolling, doesn't really matter which

SUL weirdness

Hi ACN! I was wondering if I could ask a favor: When foundationwiki got merged into SUL, my old account there, User:PinkAmpersand (proof), reactivated the SUL of that name—a username that would otherwise be impossible to register since it used to be my username. I've lost the password for that account, and it's weird (and potentially an attack vector) for my old username to still have an account associated with it that I don't control. Would it be possible to rename User:PinkAmpersand to like User:PinkAmpersand (SUL issue) or User:PinkAmpersand (T205347) and lock it? -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 22:58, 27 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request to Change my account name and unblock my account.

Dear Concern,

I would like to request my name change as my current name does not follow the Wikipedia guidelines which is 247 City News I would like to change it with my real name Ashley Schulz.

My second request is please unblock my account I truly love Wikipedia and i love to continue editing in it, as you can see my contribution history is good and I always edit with edit summary.

Thanks. 247 City News (talk) 19:20, 12 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@247 City News Stewards do not generally get involved in local blocks. Please continue to discuss with English Wikipedia administrators on your English Wikipedia talk page. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 01:12, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Commons permission

Dear colleague, can you allow me to use commons wiki as a result of the discussion here? because I use 1 account. Elshad Iman (Elşad İman) (talk) 15:10, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Elshad Iman (Elşad İman) I will again attempt to clarify:,
  • Your Meta-Wiki appeal resulted in your original account being unlocked. This means you can log in, and edit projects where you are not blocked.
  • You have open blocks on Commons, ruwiki, enwiki, and trwiki. You need to appeal those blocks on those projects, not here.
  • Do not expect those projects to quickly unblock you because of discussion here. You have been an unconstructive editor on those projects for years, and they have local processes. Use your user talk page on those projects to appeal.
And again, the primary reason you were unlocked was because you seem to be constructively editing azwiki, per local editors there. I highly recommend you only edit azwiki. Vermont 🐿️ (talk) 15:20, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I understood, thanks. I applied here. Elshad Iman (Elşad İman) (talk) 15:24, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Global Block for

Hello dear steward AntiCompositeNumber! Since Steward Requests/Global is semi-protected, I would like to ask for an urgent steward action that requires steward attention which I cannot make in the page:

Status:    In progress

Open Proxy/Webhost.

This is an Open proxy/Webhost provided, used by the American VPN service NortonLifeLock, if I'm not mistaken. I can definitely attest to the Norton VPN IPs being used for abuse and spambots on and commons as well. Thank you. 2603:800C:402:E89C:148D:9D4F:8A75:22D4 21:49, 24 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I was thinking that I could add you to the filter to stop some of the xwiki BS. Not exactly certain how much hassle across wikis, so thought that I should float it first.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:04, 23 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Billinghurst Haven't noticed any xwiki yet. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 21:37, 24 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello there! Could you review my unblock request since I've never said what Ymblanter accused me of? I would really appreciate. Александр Мотин (talk) 14:00, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. I'm a Wikipedia user since 2010, has 1,7 million edits (including my bots' edits) and bot flag in 10 Wikipedias. Can I re-open this request? MBH (talk) 02:01, 2 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MBH Please create a new one, and make sure to notify local communities. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 01:16, 3 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But why I need to create a new one, if I agree with current statement? If an original poster not honored enough to create a global ban proposals, I can support his statement. MBH (talk) 11:33, 3 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MBH Normally I'd agree along the lines of w:WP:NOTBUREAU, but global bans are one of the places where we have to make sure that T's are crossed and I's are dotted. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 22:39, 4 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A few more


Thanks again for quick reaction. Here a few more of they accounts. This user periodically evasion the block and inserts numerous inappropriate original research, and has now reached the level of cross-wiki vandalism. Thank you. Mykola 20:46, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, there are two failed requests to implementing a global ban for BFDIFan707 and Heraldrist, and their socks. This two accounts will be a sockpuppet, and will be globally banned by the community, and the Wikimedia Foundation. This request is called Requests for comment/Global ban for BFDIFan707 and Heraldrist. Can you re-open this request? 02:31, 29 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 02:32, 29 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes. 02:35, 29 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But why you need to create a new one, if you agree with current statement? If an original poster not honored enough to create a global ban proposals, you can support his statement. 14:20, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please can you request it? AntiCompositeNumber? It has may involved on cross-wiki abuse. 01:51, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not going to open it, because then I wouldn't be able to close it. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 02:03, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Can you open it, it will be closed by Daniuu, not by AntiCompositeNumber. This cowboy's running from myself (talk) 14:49, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Daniuu is not a steward, and can not close global ban RfCs as successful. Please stop asking me about this, the answer is and will remain no. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 21:34, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Can you open it, it will be closed by AmandaNP, not by Daniuu, the answer is and will remain yes, and AmandaNP is a steward. This cowboy's running from myself (talk) 07:13, 16 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

LTA cross-wiki vandalism and block evasion

Good evening AntiCompositerNumber, I would like to inform you that the globally blocked user Livioandronico2013 (talk contribs deleted contribs logs block user block log CentralAuth AllContribs checkuser investigate) is cross-wiki vandalizing articles, pages and other files. I treated to revert him, but he is changing IPs constantly. Would be possibly to block all the IPs globally? Thanks and greetings.

These are the IPs that I counted for last three days:

Their actions, in most cases, are impose Livio and his socks accounts' photos in Wikidata (diff 1, diff 2, diff 3), undo my contributions in some Wikipedias like in French (diff 1, diff 2), Spanish (diff 1, diff 2, diff 3) or English (diff 1, diff 2, diff 3) versions, and, also, editing in the files that Livio and socks uploaded to wikimedia Commons (diff 1, diff 2, diff 3). 19:54, 11 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No is you understand? My God... -- 23:50, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


My current IP address is and the blocked range is affected can't edit I don't know what happened can you unblock my IP. ELEXN (talk) 08:53, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ELEXN Turn your VPN off. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 18:41, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

global AF

Please would you well-test global AF before implementing them with any sort of action. I have disabled a recent one that needed a lot more tweaking before doing anything but watch and report. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:25, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please unblock IP addresses

I'm using "ACT VPN" (IP address

) in China, it's global blocked. Because I live in China, If I disconnect this VPN, can't use Wikipedia. Cold you unblock the above IP addresses? 湯崩正海 (talk) 12:25, 21 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@湯崩正海 I have granted you global IP block exemption. If you wish to edit the Chinese or English Wikipedias, you will likely have to request local block exemption on those wikis as well. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 02:16, 22 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Excuse me

Sorry to disturb you,based on of this request [1].Do you know where I could make an 'aminist' request? If I can of course, just to upload photos and of course have no problems with anyone and not participate in FP? Thank you and sorry again. 09:50, 5 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
