This is Bishonen at enwiki. There's not much point in posting welcome templates or other messages here, as I don't look in very often. You're most welcome to contact me on my Wikipedia talkpage. Bishonen (talk) 00:14, 27 August 2012 (UTC).Reply

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:01, 20 August 2014 (UTC)Reply

Global renamer[edit]

Hello. I've granted you global renamer rights per your successful vote. Welcome to the team! Please subscribe to the global renamers list and add your details on the global renamers table. You can find all of those in Global renamers. If I can be of any help to you, please do not hesistate to ask. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 19:05, 15 April 2016 (UTC)Reply

Thank you very much, MarcoAurelio. Actually I got an e-mail from User:Trijnstel a few days ago, asking for my e-mail address. I got the impression that he intended to subscribe me to the mailing list once I'd been granted the rights. I'd just as soon wait for him to do it. (I find those things difficult. Mailing lists are no friends of mine.) Am I supposed to add myself to Template:List of global renamers? That I can manage... :-), but when I look at the template history, it doesn't look like people do that. It looks more like they get added by you guys. Bishonen (talk) 19:27, 15 April 2016 (UTC).Reply
I've added you both to the global renamers table and the mailing list now. Btw, not that it matters, but I'm a girl. Trijnsteltalk 17:24, 16 April 2016 (UTC)Reply
Oh, right, thanks, Trijnstel. I'll add another language or two to the table. I'm a girl as well. It matters! But not so much in these contexts, admittedly. :-) Bishonen (talk) 17:34, 16 April 2016 (UTC).Reply

A few days late, but congratulations, and welcome to the global rename team! I'm one of your colleagues now, and I just wanted to say hi! :) —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 22:24, 18 April 2016 (UTC)Reply

Block Wikipedia:User:Bocaj12 indefinitely on Wikipedia[edit]

He was sanctioned so why not indefinitely block him? MIKEL S. SARWONO (talk) 21:43, 18 October 2016 (UTC)Reply

Protect Wikipedia:A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism[edit]

So the edit warrior needs to be blocked indefinitely and that page needs to be protected...

MIKEL S. SARWONO (talk) 21:50, 18 October 2016 (UTC)Reply

  • Sorry, MIKEL S. SARWONO, I don't think that being "sanctioned" is a reason to indefinitely block him. Since you yourself are indefinitely blocked on the English Wikipedia, I reackon you will have to give me some really good reasons for the actions you would like to see me (and other enwiki admins) do. If you have such reasons, you may add them below. Bishonen (talk) 23:08, 18 October 2016 (UTC).Reply

No renaming between November 20 and November 27[edit]


You’re getting this because you’re a steward or global renamer. The Community Tech team are working on cross-wiki watchlists. We need to add a couple of fields to the localuser table in centralauth database. In order to be able to do this, we’d need to run a script that will get in the way of renaming users. Our apologies – we realize this is getting in the way of your work.

We ask that you do not rename anyone between 00:00 November 20 (UTC) and 00:00 November 27 (UTC).

(UTC means that if you live in the Americas, it will be on the evening or afternoon of November 19 when the script starts running, and if you live in Oceania or eastern Asia, it can be closer midday on November 27 before we can be sure the script is no longer running.)

Phabricator task.

If there are any problems related to this, or you have any questions, please write me on my talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:42, 17 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

Global renamer[edit]

Hi. I just removed your global renamer rights due to inactivity (logs). If you still want to help out with renames, please re-apply on SRGP. Regards. Matiia (talk) 02:42, 16 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
