feedback for Wikidata mockups[edit]

Hey :)

You indicated that you'd like to help with the interwiki link phase of Wikidata. We're currently looking for feedback on mockups about linking on the Wikipedias. In case you have not seen them yet it'd be great if you could have a look and tell me what you think.

Cheers --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 15:10, 8 May 2012 (UTC)


Dear Dereckson, I would like to ask you if you kindly agree to translate the article Israel Tsvaygenbaum from English to French. Thank you. Sincerely, Boxes12 (talk) 14:54, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Dereckson,

You asked me to answer on your questions about an artist Israel Tsvaygenbaum. Here are some:
1. A number of his works are in the Museum of Imitative Arts, Derbent, Dagestan, Russia. (A new name of the museum is: Historic and Archaeologist Museum Reserve)
2. In 1994 many Russian national TV channels showed opening of Israel Tsvaygenbaum’s solo exhibition at The Central House of Artist (CDH) on Krymsky Val, Moscow. I have a copy on these interviews. The following news papers covered that solo exhibition.
Derbentskie izvestiya — Jewish Rhapsody, M. Matatova. May 6.1994.P.4
Vatan — Jewish Rhapsody, M. Matatova. May 13, 1994. P3
Since 1994 in the USA many news papers covered his solo and exhibitions, like;
The Record, Daily Gazette, Times Union and Jewish World News.
You can see it in the article about him.
Thank you.
Best wishes, Boxes12 (talk) 14:59, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Un hébergement[edit]

Bonjour Dereckson, je viens de voir ton message laissé sur le bistrot. Je serai intéressé d'obtenir un hébergement pour l'un de mes scripts en php. Il s'agit d'un formulaire qui permet de générer un script pour WP:Fr... Si tu pouvais me mettre en place un espace d'hébergement qui accepte le php alors ce serait parfait car ainsi je pourrais partager cet outil (le formulaire) avec d'autres membres du projet commune de France. amicalement--Wikialine (talk) 00:05, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Oui, bien sûr c'est possible. J'ai juste besoin de savoir deux petites choses, le login que tu souhaites et si tu veux t'authentifier par une clef SSH ou par un pass :
1. Souhaites-tu "wikialine" comme nom d'utilisateur ou autre chose (celui-ci est toujours en minuscule) ?
2. Le compte est accessible par SSH et SFTP. Si tu souhaites le sécuriser au mieux, cette documentation explique assez bien l'intérêt d'utiliser une clef SSH. Si tu choisis cette solution, j'ai besoin de l'URL vers ta clef publique ou que tu [Special:Emailuser/Dereckson me l'envoies par mail]. Dans le cas contraire, ce sera un login/pass tout ce qu'il y a de plus classique (celui-ci sera généré aléatoirement. --Dereckson (talk) 08:59, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
En matière d'hébergement, j'ai léhabitude d'hébergeurs comme Free, Ifrance... ayant obtenu un login et un mot de passe, je peux ensuite utiliser mon logiciel de transfert FTP FileZilla. Si on pouvait s'en rapprocher. Comme login d'accord pour mettre "wikialine" et comme pass je te fais confiance à toi de voir. amicalement--Wikialine (talk) 22:57, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
Je n'ai pas eu de tes nouvelles, as-tu pu me créer un compte pour héberger mes quelques pages php ? amicalement--Wikialine (talk) 16:39, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedias having zero local media files[edit]

Hi Dereckson, since you work on the file count bug and are involved with Commons, this might be interesting for you: List of Wikipedias having zero local media files - 99 Wikipedias listed. Deleting 39 remaining files in the closed Wikipedias is proposed [6]. More candidates are in the group having 1000... 9999 articles List_of_Wikipedias/Table#1_000.2B_articles. There are many files in these small WPs that violate the wmf:Resolution:Licensing policy.

Some files are duplicates of files in Commons, if a bot could remove these, the clean-up would be faster. Maybe you have more ideas, how to make progress with the move to Commons. 20:23, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Globally locked account of Marmase[edit]

Dear Dereckson! Who unlocked Marmase again? His globally locked account had a sense. He is not a native speaker in Zazaki and makes a lot of mistakes. This upsets the whole project and robs us of our precious time with correcting his errors. Recently, changes are not possible under the pretext "Translation to this language is disabled". How does he do it? Please do something against him to prevent him. -- Mirzali (talk) 10:19, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Hello! I just noticed the link is down, I can't get access to it. I would like to see it, so we can keep working on that! Thanks. --Edjoerv (talk) 19:56, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

@Edjoerv: yes, we've currently an issue with Gerrit.

Initial configuration for ec.wikimedia

Wikimedistas de Ecuador has been recognized as a Wikimedia user group
in September 2015. To work efficiently, they wish a private wiki.

This configuration is mostly based on be.wikimedia.

Lang code ........ es
Shard ............ s3
Site name ........ Wikimedistas de Ecuador
Logo .............
Timezone ......... America/Guayaquil (UTC-5)
Uploads .......... allowed
Import sources ... meta
Features ......... Visual Editor, private wiki

Bug: T135521
Change-Id: I75af02c458aeb3dd0ae93fd30aeace81cbd11fed

Hello! I am so so sorry that I'm replying way too late to this, but I needed a break from some things and took a vacation from Wikimedia for a month. Now that I'm back at this, I can be close to this process. We at Wikimedistas de Ecuador think the settings for the private wiki are okay, just that we might need a logo change soon since we've got an email from affcom telling us we needed to re-do it due to new rules on logo designing for affiliates. If we get the wiki, could there be a way to change it once we have our new logo? --Edjoerv (talk) 19:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello Edjoerv,
Sure for the logo, we only need the URL to change it, ideally of the SVG version so we can prepare HD versions too.
For that or any future config change you need, you only have to open a new task on Phabricator and we'll modify the configuration.
So, the private wiki is live at
As a private wikis, SUL accounts aren't usable, you need to choose a first bureaucrat, we'll provide an access, and then, this bureaucrat can create new accounts for Wikimedistas de Ecuador participants.
Can I create an account for you as first bureaucrat? --Dereckson (talk) 05:20, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
Sure, that'll be fine. And thanks for helping us with this! --Edjoerv (talk) 15:23, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)[edit]

Hi - according to our records you received a free account for JSTOR through The Wikipedia Library. Because we’ve used up all of our allocated accounts, and it’s been some time since they were distributed, we want to redistribute any accounts that aren’t being used to users on our waitlist.

If you’re still using, or plan to use, your JSTOR access, no problem! Simply head over to the Library Card platform, log in, and request a renewal of your account. You should be able to do this from your user page, or the JSTOR signup page. If you can’t find the renewal button, or have any other issues or questions about this, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. We’ll begin redistributing inactive accounts in September; if you request renewal after then we will only be able to reactivate your account if we have spots remaining. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:32, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
