About WP:BIGDELETE intervention on eswiki.[edit]

Greetings. I'm the owner of the sandboxes that were requested to hace their history merged. It was a large list of 31 articles to be merged, therefore, I had to make an special request at the board on eswiki on two parts.
Thank you very much for merging some of these this morning, but I've noticed that there are still some remaining and are the ones from part 2 of the original request. I don't know if you overlooked them because they were not on the first part or because you had some trouble doing the merger. If it was because you couldn't understand the request post, the remaining ones are in a separate list below the line that reads Artículos involucrados (parte 2). The article with the definitive name is the same as the first part. Thanks.--MexTDT (talk) 23:15, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

MexTDT, hi, you are welcome. I just postponed them to do in a second batch because I had to go AFK. I will finish merging in an hour or so :) --Base (talk) 23:40, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
I understand, take your time. Thank you very much.--MexTDT (talk) 23:43, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

Sunday November 29 Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meeting[edit]

Take flight with us.

The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a developing forum for all Wikimedia movement affiliates to share ideas on the Wikimedia 2030 strategy process. It expands on the model of the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting to help lay some of the groundwork for a future Global Council.

Following up on the August, September, and October SWAN meetings, and June's All-Affiliates Brand Meeting, as well as strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates including the recent proposed changes to the Wikimedia Foundation Bylaws, this month we are meeting on Sunday November 29, and you are all invited to RSVP here.

(Note that the UTC times of and are the same as before, although a number of places have had daylight savings time changes since our last meeting).--Pharos (talk) 01:26, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Help[edit]

Hello. Kindly take a look at Мала академія народних мистецтв (МАНМ), it seems out of scope to me and I'd like to confirm it. --Minorax (talk) 04:10, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Indeed, thanks :) --Base (talk) 15:35, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Sysop in vi.wiktionary[edit]

Regarding this. I've contacted the vi.wiktionary's crat on 3 different channels (Wiktionary, Wikipedia and Wikidata). If he doesn't respond within a month from now, can you just go ahead and grant sysop flag to the user elected by the community? We don't want to decrat someone just because of one isolated incident. Thanks! Nguyentrongphu (talk) 04:19, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Nguyentrongphu, yes, I personally think that would be reasonable enough at that point, though I will consult with colleagues before undertaking such an action. I have also now messaged them on Facebook and via Jabber, hopefully one of our attempts to reach them does succeed. --Base (talk) 04:45, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Вандализм в Татарской Википедии[edit]

Доброе утро! Посоветуйте пожалуйста с вопросом автоматической отмены правок участника w:tt:User:Marat-avgust и его робота w:tt:User:IanraBot в Татарской Википедии от 27 и 28 октября 2020 года. Данные правки обсуждались в ТатВики, были подтверждены и другими админами, что участник (к тому же он неактивный админ) занимается Вандализмом. Так-как у нас нет бюрократа, то и лишить статуса админа мы его не можем, а блокировку он сможет легко убрать в любой момент, поэтому надо еще и лишить его статуса админа, а второго статуса бота.--Ilnur efende (talk) 06:08, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

(Для истории, поскольку обсудили в Телеграме: сообщество татарской Википедии проведёт голосование по снятию с участника флагов администратора и бота и подаст запрос к ботоводам откатить изменения сделанные этим участником.) --Base (talk) 12:57, 29 December 2020 (UTC)

3 бессрочных блокировки по ошибке в литовской Википедии[edit]

Добрый день! Около недели назад 3 участника литовской Википедии (w:lt:User:Sociaken, w:lt:User:Kaulaz и w:lt:User:Nojucka) были бессрочно заблокированы по ошибке. Одним словом, администраторы подумали, что все эти 3 участника якобы являются моими куклами (см. w:ru:Википедия:Многоликость), но это не так! Вы можете в этом убедится, сравнив мой ip-адрес с ip-адресом этих кукол. Администраторам данного раздела я уже писал, но они на это никак не реагируют. Прошу разобратся с этим беспорядком. --7elteven (talk) 12:49, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Sunday January 10 Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meeting[edit]

Into the blue.

The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a developing forum for all Wikimedia movement affiliates to share ideas on the Wikimedia 2030 strategy process. It expands on the model of the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting to help lay some of the groundwork for a future Global Council.

Following up on the August, September, October, and November SWAN meetings, and June's All-Affiliates Brand Meeting, as well as strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates including SWAN input on Interim Global Council and Movement Charter, this month we are meeting on Sunday January 10, and you are all invited to RSVP here.

To start the exchange of ideas on the IGC early, and to help prepare before the SWAN calls, we have set up and invite everyone to participate at this etherpad. If you like a more interactive way of discussing, we have also made a jamboard. Check here for more details.

Принцип работы инструмента перевода[edit]

При переводе подготовленного на русском отчёта инструмент перевода продублировал теги языков поверх уже готового /ru. Как-то это можно исправить, ну или хотя б откатить, дабы я всё сделал по новой? Заранее спасибо. Красныйwanna talk? 16:15, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Красный, привет, исправил. Необходимо отмечать к переводу страницу без суффикса языка. Это несколько необычно когда статья не на английском является источником перевода, но поскольку в данном случае перевод проводится именно с русского это правильно и нормально. --Base (talk) 19:31, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Ну, мне просто не нравилось, что у нас типично статья на русском с англоязычным заголовком, так что попытался как-то это исправить. Вышло не ахти. :) Спасибо. Красныйwanna talk? 22:51, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Красный, да, по-хорошему название должно быть на русском, а для английского указываться перевод в первом блоке перевода (как обычно при переводе с английского). Если решишь переименовать страницу группы, обрати внимание что был раньше такой баг: phab:T114592, написано что пофиксили, но я всё же, от греха подальше, начал бы переименование с переводимых подстраниц, а корневой переводимой страницей группы бы уже закончил. --Base (talk) 23:07, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

A request to have the deletion of my user-page undone[edit]

Hi Base: I know this is ancient history, but until today I did not have the courage to ask you about this. In 2017 you deleted my user page with this explanation:"not created by the user", and I have always been puzzled by your action.

I simply cannot figure out why anyone would want to put information on my user-page that was so offensive that it required an admin to delete the page, rather than simply reverting the content if it was deemed offensive.

I would like to have my page returned to the same condition it was in on the day it was deleted. I am particularly interested in the contribution history of my page.

Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 16:52, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi Ottawahitech. It had one revision only, so I could not revert it, so had to delete it instead :) It was created by User:Breezy macma and said "Beyonce and nicki minaj". The user was just making nonsense edits here and there. --Base (talk) 17:47, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Requests for global IP block exemption[edit]

@Base: Dear Sir, I have placed a request for Global IP block exempt in Steward requests/Global permissions, If you don't mind can you review my request for Global IP block exempt right and tell me that I am eligible or not?. Thanks --BubblySnow  💬 12:28, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

BubblySnow, hi, as a matter of fact I have already replied there about a minute ago :) --Base (talk) 12:29, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Sunday February 21 Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meeting[edit]

We are a mosiac.

To help set priorities for the SWAN agenda, and also to help manage which global conversations should be a focus in general, we have set up and invite everyone to participate at this SWAN priorities form.

Possible topics include Community Board seats, Interim Global Council, Strategy prioritization follow-up events, Branding, Universal Code of Conduct, Grant strategy, and WMF CEO search. That is a lot of things, which are most important to cover in our upcoming SWAN meeting?

Following the regular call, in SWAN after hours: Wikimedia Meet Jitsi social event with brainstorming for possible Nano Charter ideas, plus any other topics.

A few question in regards to TranslateWiki[edit]

Hey there, User:Base! I hope all's well with you.

You granted me temporary adminship on December 2 for hyw Wikipedia (view here) and I've got a question! I know TranslateWiki interface translations take time, but some features have not yet changed. For example, hyw Wiki search filters are still the default from hy Wiki, even though there are no such terms left untranslated on TW. Any advice on that? Please let me know if you can be of any help with this, as I'm a little confused.

Best, Shahen --Շահէն (talk) 14:03, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Շահէն, hello. Do you mean "Search by relevance" and such? It is in this group, it has quite a few messages to be translated: https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&group=ext-advancedsearch&language=hyw&filter=!translated&action=translate . If you add ?uselang=qqx (or &uselang=qqx if the URL already had a "?") to the URL then you will load the page with message names instead of their values. Then you can go to TWN (TranslateWiki.Net) and open the page MediaWiki:<the message name>/hyw and edit it. Or you can just search for translations using the search field on TWN main page. --Base (talk) 00:17, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Hi User:Base! I know how to translate these, but sometimes content that have been translated on TranslateWiki are still in default mode when you check it on the interface of hyw Wiki. Let me know if there's something I'm missing. Is there something interface admins should do from backend, or is this completely solvable via TranslateWiki by regular users as well? Please advise, and thank you again for your swift reply! Best, --Շահէն (talk) 12:44, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Email address to contact the Wikimedia Ukraine chapter[edit]

Greetings, Bohdan! This is User:Deborahjay, communities coordinator for the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) 2021 campaign. I'm updating our list of email addresses and contact people for chapters and user groups worldwide. Please note a discrepancy in email addresses for the Wikimedia Ukraine chapter:

Perhaps the optimal action would be to reconcile these two and ping me here. I'll watch for your response. Thanks! -- Deborahjay (talk) 08:35, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

  • Deborahjay, hi, both email addresses are valid, but info@ is better when timely response is required at the moment. There is also wikimedia-ua-announce(_AT_)lists.wikimedia.org where we have public announcements about our activities (open to both members and non-members) and wikimediaua(_AT_)lists.wikimedia.org is our member only private list. --Base (talk) 08:11, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks so much, Bohdan, for the info and swift reply! As WPWP's outreach stage aims to put a user name for contact each affiliate, may I list yours as chapter secretary? -- Deborahjay (talk) 09:38, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

User talk:85.238.102.83[edit]

Hi. I would have an expectation that as a local admin that where you are blocking someone, that you are in communication with them, rather than playing hand of God only. This is especially the case where you have blocked someone on more than one occasion. Otherwise bringing the matter to your fellow admins attention and informing them of the situation. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:30, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi, billinghurst, I hoped that the action summary I have given when blocking both times was providing sufficient information, but if not I am truly sorry. I hope that the explanation I have given on Minorax's talk page explains the situation better. And FYI as I am 99% sure that the person starting that topic there is the same person as the one blocked, I am going to block them as well. --Base (talk) 14:58, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
For the record I have moved forward to block the ISP range as they kept evading. I have provided some more context at Minorax's talk page. --Base (talk) 15:50, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
Something that we may wish to consider in time is range blocks solely focused on Translation: ns where we have specific user problems, and we can deal with the other issues as they arise with targeted blocks, and abuse filters. Of course I could always write an abuse filter solely focused on Translation: ns and restrict based on IP addresses and other like components, but partial blocks just seems so much easier club to handle.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:28, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
 It is very unfortunate that Translate does not let one protect particular translation pages. In this case protecting a couple of Ukrainian translations of UCoC and potentially a few other things would do the job (at least it will bring down the frustration of users that were working on those and had to keep an eye on what the LTA is doing to fix it back). A partial block is a good idea I haven't thought about it, because although it is unlikely to have someone from those ISPs being active on Meta as a good faith editor (because there are really just a handful of Ukrainians active here) there is this risk anyway so it is good to limit the harm. As to AbuseFilter well yeah it is possible to create one, but it is usually a pain to maintain those especially when you are dealing with someone with an agenda rather than just a bunch of spambots. --Base (talk) 07:20, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
@Billinghurst For the record, filter 277 is now in place after I had to block a dozen IPs (and revert ~10 translation edits per IP) within an hour or so. ~~~~
User:1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk)
20:31, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
@1234qwer1234qwer4: Consider doing harder targeted IP blocks for a longer period. As in block IP ranges from Translation: ns for a longer period. We can also consider stopping IP edits on the uk-lang page stem. Sometimes we have to apply benevolent hardships.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:23, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
Billinghurst, this is a long-term abuser. We don't usually do partial blocks for them. ~~~~
User:1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk)
13:08, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
@1234qwer1234qwer4: I am not a nonce. I don't normally hand out gratuitous advice, so ... You range blocked for a few days, and I am suggesting that it would be possible to range block a namespace for longer with little likelihood of problematic consequences and maximising the elimination of the problem that we encounter.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:19, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
The edit filter should be stopping all problematic edits anyway, but feel free to adjust the block settings for it. I am not sure which range you are talking about. Sorry if I sounded unfriendly. ~~~~
