The Cebuano and Swedish wikis have a lot of bot-created content which is unconnected to other wiki articles. A good way to tackle that problem is by checking constraint violations for property GeoNames ID.
As part of routine security cleanups, we need to delete the instance 'wikisource-dev' in the 'wikisource-dev' project. I have records of you being associated with that project as of a year or so ago... can you comment on the usefulness (or uselessness) of that instance, or direct me to someone who can? Thank you!

Yes, it was use to test the ProofreadPage extension. Feel free to delete it. Tpt (talk) 11:29, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, everyone, for your quick responses! I will shutdown the instance for now and, if no commotion results, it will be deleted as part of standard cleanup at the end of March. Please contact me (email or my talk page) if you have any regrets. Andrewbogott (talk) 16:55, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
@Valhallasw: I am just a restarter of services (of last resort), and someone trusted with a few keys. It will need to be updated by others. If @Petrb: is unable to do it, then we may need to get some assistance from further afield, and would seek your advice on may be able to assist. — billinghurstsDrewth 01:29, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
@Valhallasw: did you get a response to the issue? If not, then as it is a widely used IRC tool, do I need to escalate the matter? — billinghurstsDrewth 03:56, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
Good evening/ Why do not you have applied for a steward flag? English for you is the native and you could well understand the problems in all projects. I would support your candidacy. Thanks!--AryanSogd(t) 18:23, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Hi AryanSogd. Thanks for your confidence in me. I have been there, done that (bought the t-shirt and worn it out). For numbers of reasons, I cannot commit to the role, and, in my opinion, to do it, it needs that commitment — some stewards did ask me earlier here, though I did reply to them privately. Stewardry is quite consuming of time, effort, patience, etc. and I do like to continue my normal editing at places like Wikisource.
Anyway, I still do other bits around the place that support the global community, and reduce some aspects of the workloads of stewards. — billinghurstsDrewth 22:06, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
It's a pity. Sincerely, --AryanSogd(t) 14:00, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
