Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello, Bene*. 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). Happy editing!

Partial translations[edit]

Hello, thanks for your translations. Partial translations should be marked with a !!FUZZY!! tag in the text so that they show up as untranslated. Thanks, Nemo 23:52, 24 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I will remember this the next time. Best Regards, --Bene* (talk) 12:58, 25 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, per the request on SRGP I've granted your account editinterface access. Please use it wisely :)

These permissions are temporary for one year; please create a new request on SRGP to retain them after that. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 01:28, 6 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please consider not translating Tech News in protest[edit]

Hi Bene*, I have just noticed that you've been working on the translation of Tech News this weekend.

I wanted to ask you to consider refraining from translating such pages to avoid supporting the recent actions of the Wikimedia Foundation. On Sunday, they have implemented a change that gives them an unprecedented, unilateral and unlimited power to protect certain pages on Wikimedia wikis in a manner that makes it impossible for all volunteers — including locally elected administrators — to edit them.

The change was secretly forced through without any community consultation, and the Foundation have used this new feature to actively fight the volunteer community of the German Wikipedia.

Your volunteer translations directly sustain such actions of the Foundation. Your work helps them save time and effort that they would otherwise have to invest in recruiting, training and managing new employees, and saves them money they would otherwise have to spend on professional translations.

The recent actions of the Wikimedia Foundation make it very clear that they no longer respect the wishes of the volunteer community, and that they no longer consider us an equal partner. The least we can do to voice our dismay at those actions, and to support our colleagues on the German Wikipedia, is to stop investing our precious time as volunteers on directly helping the Wikimedia Foundation. We can instead translate pages which help all wiki users.

Please take a minute to consider withdrawing your help for the Foundation in protest against their disrespectful treatment of the volunteer community of the German Wikipedia.

Thank you for your time and your consideration! odder (talk) 21:59, 12 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, sorry for answering late. I don't have admin permissions on this project and thus cannot edit gadgets in the MediaWiki namespace. Kind regards -- Bene* (talk) 11:47, 21 December 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your help anyway! I changed your rights at testwiki:User talk:Bene* and kindly ask you to create gadgets, Lua scripts, templates there. Good luck and best regards Gangleri aka
