help pls

Hi; I am a student in Başkent University. ip is used by Başkent Üniversitesi in Turkey. But it was blocked in Turkish wikipedia for unlimited time. block begins: 23:15, 6 Feb. 2011. Since that time whole university can not make any edits in Turkish wikipedia. We university students want to edit turkish wikipedia. Local adminstrators say they are very angry with an old time user and they dont unblock th i.p. and they punish a whole university. It has been a long time and probably the person that makes them angry is graduate by now. Thank you for help.

I'm not really able to help, I'm not a sysop on Turkish Wikipedia, nor do I speak Turkish. You left this message also for some stewards, who might be able to look into the problem. Courcelles 17:42, 17 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Permanent link on log entry

When you cite permanentlink on edit summary or log entry, using Special:Permanentlink (usage:[[Special:Permanentlink/number after the &oldid=]]) will give you clickable link, while just pasting URL does not give clickable link. — Revi 17:50, 28 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Re: Rights

Hello, thanks for making me a member of this group: Autopatrollers. On En WP too, a guy gave me this right directly without any request. Such act really encourages.
I have recently become an admin on En WP. I have seen your works on En WP and Commons.
For last few weeks I am trying to find an importer on this Wiki. I have started User:Titodutta/Import requests with few import requests.
The Merchandise pages were messed up when they did "cut-paste move", as a result, the main page is on meta and archives are on En WP. They say You can tell them anyway you want or try the You've been nominated! template by copying this code to a new section on their talk page {{subst:MerchNominationAward}}, but there is no such template on Meta. We have templates, but we don't have collpasible option.
Do you know where should I ask to do few imports? (I have MediaWiki set-up and management experience, and very recently I have successfully imported few templates on Test Wikipedia too), Looking for an importer/admin here. Regards. --TitoDutta 23:57, 29 January 2015 (UTC) --TitoDutta 00:03, 30 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Titodutta, try making your request at Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. I could do this technically, but as I've never done it before, you'll find someone better at it there. (AS to autopatrolled, it doesn't do much here, but non-autopatrolled edits are marked with a red "!" in the recent changes for admins (I don't think that happens for non-admins). Easier to find the vandalism if folks like you don't have their edits marked!) Courcelles 00:01, 30 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do you mind giving me some more details as to why you deleted my post?

What part of my proposal broke which rules? Don't just refer me to some page on "Friendly space expectations", tell me exactly what I did. No vagueness, please.

Also, do you mind telling me how I might be able to get another admin involved here? Judging by your history of posts here, I suspect I'll need some input from another admin who hasn't been deleting any proposals that fall out of line with your own narrow-minded attitude towards fixing the gender gap problem.

  • Did you read the friendly spaces policy? "campaign against this unjust discrimination against men. "? "I couldn't help but notice that that there's a "gender gap" in employment within Wikimedia Foundation that I think you'll find just as interesting..." implying the WMF is sexist for employing too many women? You made a point of picking on three individual, named women, in fact. This isn't going to be tolerated in the Grants: namespace in general or especially the IdeaLab specifically. Ping @Fhocutt (WMF):. Courcelles 01:53, 25 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Absolute nonsense. First off, please call it harassment if you believe it's harassment. "Picking on" isn't well-defined, but my impression of it is that, much like bullying, it requires multiple occurrences and would preferably happen on a regular basis to fall under "picking on". Not only was this restricted to one post I made, but it was restricted to a small section of that post and it was blatantly clear to anyone not looking for an excuse to delete the material that this tiny portion of my post was satire. The same goes for the claim that WMF employing "too many women" is sexist except even more so, as not only was the claim that WMF are sexist in hiring employees satire but the point I was demonstrating is that isolated statistics such as no. of female employees vs. no. of male employees mean absolutely nothing without further research into the reasons why this is, and until that research is done it cannot be established whether or not there is a problem! Not only was I not making the claim that WMF are sexist in this regard, I was outlining how idiotic such an argument is.

You have purposely ignored the sole purpose of my proposal in order to justify deleting it. The satire was restricted to a small portion of my post and the rest wasn't blatantly obvious satire, it was a direct and serious description of what my proposal was. I'm going to try to get another admin involved as you clearly want the article deleted and I don't believe any defence you can come out with will satisfy my concerns that it was unjustly deleted. It's extremely important that the voice of those who believe pouring money into attracting a particular demographic over another due to the perception that, just because the majority of Wikipedia editors are male, this somehow reflects on the quality of content here and might even be the result of unseen sexism. This IS a mainstream belief here. We have people recommending the introduction of quotas to favour women over men in administrative positions getting widespread approval over at this WMF event while you're obviously CENSORING the other side of the conversation.

Global user page migration

Hello Courcelles. I deleted your local user pages on most wikis as you requested via Synchbot. Your global user page is now active on all wikis. You can see the full log on your archive page. :) —Pathoschild 17:17, 09 May 2015 (UTC)

Cross-wiki watchlist

Hi! You voted for the cross-wiki watchlist as an important suggestions in the community wishlist survey last year. I'm pinging editors who showed interest in that task to tell them we have some suggestions for how things could look, if you'd like to glance at them and give us some feedback. You can find them on the project page on Meta. If you'd like to share any comments, you're very welcome to do so on the talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 01:08, 21 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Invitation to Training Modules design conversation

Hello! We are leaving you this message because you have previously indicated that you interested in helping the Wikimedia Foundation Support & Safety team in developing our training modules this year.

We appreciate all the help and thoughts users like you have offered thus far. We would like to encourage you, if you are interested, to participate in the next step of our development: a community consultation about the design and structure of the modules. Note that we're not yet gathering feedback on the content of the modules - a separate consultation about that will be starting soon.

In this "design" consultation, we're looking for advice on things like the best place to host these modules, the accessibility of content, and other potential design decisions. Please feel free to leave any thoughts you have about these things on the talk page. Thanks! Kbrown (WMF) (talk) 18:04, 8 November 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deletion of article - Hiro-Media

Hello Courcelles, I am contacting you regarding the deletion of the Hiro-Media page. We completely agree and understand that the article was written not according to Wikipedia's guidelines and regulations. We believe that the article can be written in a proper and neutral way with no conflict of interest like similar companies in our ecosystem. I would appreciate your help and advise as to how we can restore the page and have it edited, of course not by me or anyone else from Hiro Media. Appreciate your help in this matter.

Best regards, Yael

  • I completely managed to miss this... whoops. Been so busy in real life this last stretch. It's a 16 month old AFD. If someone found some sources, they could just go straightaway and write a new article, assuming new sources have been published or located since then.

Next steps for the wish “confirmation prompt for the rollback link”

Hello, a while ago you participated in a feedback round about a proposal how accidental clicks on the rollback link could be avoided. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and ideas!
Looking at the feedback and the rollback situation in different wikis, the development team decided how to approach this wish: As a default, most wikis won’t have a confirmation. But users who wish to have one, can enable it in their preferences, which will add a confirmation prompt to the rollback link on the diff page and on the list pages. The prompt won’t be a pop-up, but an inline prompt like for the thanks confirmation. You can read more about the planned solution and what influenced this decision on the project page. -- Best, Johanna Strodt (WMDE) (talk) 09:38, 16 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unfair block

I apologize for using this website instead of Wikipedia But seeing as how you blocked my access to my talk page I have no choice. I would like to say that I find it very inappropriate that you as the admin Who banned me some editing any article when I was simply pointing out incivility and violations of Wikipedia policies then took it upon yourself to take away my ability to edit I talk page when I was defending my actions at explaining my actions and looking for Community input and trying to show the community what the Rogue Caballo of Administrators and their trusted little minions are doing. You clearly have a conflict of interest in the original admin who blocked me from editing. I an immediate removal of the block from preventing me from editing by talk page good day sir or madam

  • @Matlia:, didn't we agree to change this to edits or logged actions? I have plenty of logged actions, and more than ten edits in the last six months (And quite a few oversight actions, as well.) Courcelles 01:54, 2 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User script to access other watchlists

Hi Courcelles,

If you remember, you participated in the 2019 Community Wishlist Survey, including the discussion for reviving "Crosswatch" to allow for cross-wiki watchlists (Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Watchlists/Revive Crosswatch tool).

I sent you this MassMessage because I wanted to let you know that I have made a user script to make accessing your watchlists on different wikis easier, since for now that wishlist item has not been actioned.

The way it works is that, on any wiki, when you look at your watchlist, there is a button labeled "CA" that takes you to the CentralAuth page for you. There, when looking at your own information, each link to a wiki ("", "", "", etc.) is changed so that it links to your watchlist on that wiki.

If you are interested in using it, just add mw.loader.load('//'); to your global javascript page. This imports the code at m:User:DannyS712/Watchlist.js.

If you want to learn more, there is documentation for the script available at w:en:User:DannyS712/Watchlist. If you would like to discuss the script, talk to me at m:User talk:DannyS712.

Thanks, --05:50, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
