Superprotect letter update[edit]

Hi DidiWeidmann,

Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.

Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on change.org, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.

I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.

Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.

Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.

Thank you for your engagement on this issue, and please stay in touch. -Pete F (talk) 18:50, 26 August 2014 (UTC)Reply

Steward elections: Disqualification of my candidature[edit]

Sorry I cannont understand this and I formally protest!!! I did send my proov of identity on time on january 28 to info@wikimedia.org as it was indicated on the procedure information!!! My disqualification so is not acceptable!!! DidiWeidmann (talk) 14:35, 8 February 2015 (UTC)Reply

I think it's a technical question. Barras also here as well: Since you haven't been added to the Identification noticeboard we can't do much here. @Philippe (WMF) and Jalexander-WMF: please refer. --►Cekli829 15:05, 8 February 2015 (UTC)Reply
Of course Wikimedia can do just one thing, that is to correct the mistake and add me to the list - as I delivered my documents in time, it is not my mistake, but the mistake of wikimedia foundation. Even tecnically gthe 8th of February is today so this can still be corrected!DidiWeidmann (talk) 15:14, 8 February 2015 (UTC)Reply
It is secure-info at wikimedia.org, see Steward_handbook/email_templates. --Rschen7754 16:22, 8 February 2015 (UTC)Reply
It is indeed, these unfortunately go to very very different groups (info@ is a volunteer run OTRS queue) :(. I have now added your name to the ID Noticeboard but qualification is, unfortunatly, out of the WMFs hands and will be up to the steward election committee.

Bot report[edit]

Hello! Will you look, please, at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/ This seems to be destructive bot. What do you think about it? How to deal with it? Domitori (talk) 04:09, 17 February 2015 (UTC)Reply

Dear Domitori I agree with you that this the anonymous user may by a vandale bot and probabebly should be blocked. At the moment I am still not elected steward, so unfortunately I can still not help you now to resolve this problem. DidiWeidmann (talk) 14:29, 21 February 2015 (UTC)Reply

Trolling and vandalism at https://ru.wikisource.org[edit]

Dear DidiWeidmann.

Could you please pay attention to the Russian version of wikisource?

It seems to me, user Lozman runs a bot, that removed texts by




The texts are moved to some strange site http://wikilivres.ru

There, the user with the same nick Lozman removes them with pretext of violation of the copyright (the licenses from Wikisource are not transferred to that site).

You may look for the example at https://ru.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Леонард_Борисович_Терновский&oldid=96651

Could you, please, handle the case, or, at least, give an advice, how to deal with it? Domitori (talk) 12:53, 21 February 2015 (UTC)Reply

Suggestion for global flag[edit]

I have realized you were not elected for few votes. Sorry, at the end it was all about a reasonable mistake, IMHO. I am here to remind you that in Steward requests/Global permissions you can ask for additional flag to get experience before next year, after all you received at least two suggestions in the comments (global renamers, global sysop if I am right) --Alexmar983 (talk) 01:20, 20 March 2015 (UTC)Reply
