Hi CKoerner (WMF), and welcome to meta. I appreciate you addressing questions and your collegiality in discussion with other WMF staff. Sydney Poore/FloNight (talk) 16:19, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Me too. You're doing a very good job. Thank you and welcome. --Anthonyhcole (talk) 00:03, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

Aww. Thank you both for the kind words. I'm giving it my best, but please keep me honest. :) CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 18:23, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
Now that the dust is settling, somewhat, I just wanted to emphasise what I said above. Your contributions to the discussions, including internal WMF discussions that have come to light, have been exemplary. I hope you find fulfilment and a fair portion of joy in your time with us, and I hope that's a long time. --Anthonyhcole (talk) 02:48, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Please do not leave English messages at the Caffi, which is now only for Welsh messages; I've moved your message here. Thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Llywelyn2000 (talk)

Sorry about that Llywelyn2000. Thanks for the help in moving it to the right place! CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 16:08, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

KE FAQ[edit]

Hi Chris, I just wanted to be sure you were aware that Knowledge Engine/FAQ has been marked as historical. I'm not sure whether or not that's the best fate for the page -- perhaps it would be better to update it further? But thought you might be in the best position to assess that. -Pete F (talk) 01:59, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Yeah i did that. was discussed on the Talk page a little. Seeing how that was a Lila initiative that she abandoned after the first day, seems pretty historical to me. Jytdog (talk) 02:28, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

With respect to the maps...[edit]

Hi, Thanks for the information, I think it could serve, although the original idea was coloring the municipalities I think it's probably better and easier to put them markers also seems very easy to edit, is now available for all wikis ?. PS: Sorry for so late answer... and the bad English... use automatic translator. Miguu "Mexican Synarchism and Nationalist Front of Mexico=Nazism"

Your request for translation adminship[edit]

Hi Chris. I hope that you're doing well. With regards to the request for translation administrator rights that you've lodged, some users are waiting for some answers there. Since James hasn't replied as to whether he would like to manage your permissions internally, I'm for granting you the rights until your contract with WMF expires. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 11:37, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Marco for all your help. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 13:42, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

User:CKoerner (WMF)/Enable Hovercards/Reminder[edit]

Hello, please, dont edit old messages. Some wikis have recieved old translate version of this message. Iniquity (talk) 23:29, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Iniquity, thank you for the notice. I missed that step in checking my message. I"m sorry. I'm trying to find the wiki's with the old message. If you know of any, please let me know so I can fix them. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 14:20, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
Ah, I do see one for Russian Wikipedia. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 14:37, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
For example: User:CKoerner (WMF)/Enable Hovercards/Reminder/he, User:CKoerner (WMF)/Enable Hovercards/Reminder/ca and User:CKoerner (WMF)/Enable Hovercards/Reminder/el have got old messages. But I see that this wikis havent got that message. Iniquity (talk) 16:53, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
And yes, Russian Wikipedia have another deploy system than another wikis. We havent got Hovercards in beta-page. Iniquity (talk) 16:59, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Page previews on Wikinews[edit]

Hello, will page reviews also be installed on Wikinews? I think it's a good system, can it be installed as a beta function as well? At least at already? --Livenws (talk) 14:02, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Livenws, the team is looking into other Wikimedia projects that are interested in the feature. Pinging Olga, the product manager of Page Previews, to let her know of the interest. :)CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 14:24, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

MassMessage to English Wiktionary's Grease Pit[edit]

Hi, your recent message ended up in the wrong place today on the English Wiktionary. Will this fix it? --Wikitiki89 (talk) 18:53, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Very helpful, thank you and apologies for the error. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 19:00, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
You didn't answer my question though. Will that edit fix it? The reason I'm confused is that I thought the message wouldn't reach the page at all if it wasn't listed at all in the distribution list. --Wikitiki89 (talk) 20:22, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
You're right, my apologies. This message was already sent using this version of a different list, where I did not include the magic words for English Wiktionary. Your reminder that some community discussion pages pages use specific month/day structures was helpful and I'll be sure to remember it moving forward. Again, sorry for the goof up.

Contacting the WMF Legal department[edit]

I am contacting you because you are listed as a Community Liaison.

I am putting together a proposal at User:Guy Macon/Proposals/CAPTCHA (part of a series of proposals at User:Guy Macon/Proposals).

In my opinion, the next logical step is to inform someone at the WMF legal department. My problem is that there does not appear to be any noticeboard associated with the WMF legal department and every member of the WMF legal department appears to have a user talk page that cannot be edited.

I am unwilling to use email or post to a mailing list because I want everything involved with my proposals to be open and accessible through the history of the page where the discussion occurred. Can you suggest a way that I can contact legal regarding this matter? -Guy Macon (talk) 17:37, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

@Guy Macon: The vast majority of legal work is definitely done by email for a number of reasons and it's usually the best way to get their response but if you want to reach out on wiki then I'd suggest reaching out to Jacob Rogers whose talk page is definitely unprotected. He's the lawyer who operates the legal@ email address and helps coordinate responses to most community questions. I'll warn you that he's on vacation until mid week so it may take a little bit for him to get back to you but I'll point him out to it him when I meet with him next if he hasn't already. One option to make sure it's in his box when he gets back would be to send a quick email to or jrogers@ just pointing out your question and requesting a response on-wiki.

About "New print to pdf feature for mobile web readers" and other Mass Messages in English[edit]

CKoerner, please abstain from sending mass messages to Spanish Wikivoyage's La Posada (Spanish version of "Traveler's Pub) if those messages are not translated to Spanish. The wiki is for Spanish language speakers and there we expect to read messages in Spanish, not in English, and if we'd like to read in English, we'd go to English Wikivoyage instead. In short: don't send messages to eswvy if they aren't translated to Spanish yet. --Zerabat (discusión) 12:46, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Sorry Zerabat, I didn't meant to frustrate you. I wanted to make sure all communities knew of the feature and wasn't able to get a volunteer translation before sending the message. We're always looking for help! :) Not to blame my tools, but it doesn't let me flag talk pages as "non-English" when sending to multiple village pumps. Folks are aware of it and I hope I can avoid this happening again in the future. Not just for the Spanish Wikivoyage! CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 22:54, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
