A sandwich keychain for you[edit]

Ciao, thanks for subscribing to the VE newsletter! I'm guessing that you actually want to get the English language edition of the newsletter: therefore, unless you don't want me to, I'll move your request to the appropriate venue there. If you can contribute Spanish translations though, please let me know or follow the Translators'list so that you'll be able to help with those in the future. Thank you! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 17:10, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

@Elitre (WMF): Oh dear, yes, I was aiming for the English one. Thanks for double-checking for me! *cuddles her shiny new keychain* Fluffernutter (talk) 17:17, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 31 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation

What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?[edit]

IdeaLab logo dark orange.png

Hi there,

I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!

Here’s how to participate:

Take care,

Future IdeaLab Campaigns results[edit]

IdeaLab badge 1.png

Last December, I invited you to help determine future ideaLab campaigns by submitting and voting on different possible topics. I'm happy to announce the results of your participation, and encourage you to review them and our next steps for implementing those campaigns this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered time to participate and submit ideas.

With great thanks,

IRC[edit]

Greetings Fluffernutter, I just wanted to ask if you would be willing to unblock me on a couple of the IRC channels. Your the only group op I have any respect for anymore since RD and Barras just do whatever they want so I am not even going to bother talking to those two anymore. I don't want them all back because most of the channels are useless anyway, I just want access to #Wikidata, #Commons, #cvn-sw and #cvn-simplewikis. You can have all the rest, most of them are worthless anyway. I am still welcome in these channels by the communities but RD unilaterally blocked me because he doesn't care what the communities think. He is allowed to do whatever he wants and Barras won't do anything about it. I am hoping as one of the Global ops you would be willing to undo some of the blocks he did. Thanks in advance. Reguyla (talk) 00:30, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

I'm trying not to hound you about this but any thought on unblocking my IRC account since it shouldn't have been blocked in the first place? Since no one is talking to me I have just been using an alternate account and loitering, but I would really like to use my regular account. This stuff with banning me over BS is getting really, really old. My ENWP ban should never have been allowed and this IRC ban is just an extension of that absurd decision that literally hurts the project every single day to the tune of around 10, 000 edits a month that aren't getting done. Reguyla (talk) 03:25, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, replying to this slipped my mind since I rarely come over to Meta as Fluffernutter anymore, so thanks for the second poke. I'm not terribly involved in the day-to-day opping of the IRC channels anymore, but if memory serves there was some discussion within the past few months about whether specific channels like the ones you list wanted to opt you out of the gban for their channels (there's a setting that would let them do that, though I've completely blanked on what that setting is). Ops from at least one of those channels decided they did not want to override the global ban. Global ops pretty much can't overrule local op decisions (and group contacts - of which I am not one - would only do it in the most exceptional of circumstances), so there's not a lot I can tell you beyond "it's not in my power to do, sorry." Fluffernutter (talk) 14:48, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
No problem. Thanks for the reply. I do find it funny and unfortunate that RD has the power to globally block people whenever the mood suits him but no one has the authority to unblock and Barras won't do anything about RD so I guess that's that. Thanks, I guess that just proves that we need a code of conduct to cover the OPS conduct on IRC channels more than ever. It's absurd this all stems from a ban on ENWP that shouldn't be allowed and a few people who want me to stop talking about it because the violations of policy that got the ban to stick are embarrassing to some admins and Arbitrators. And people wonder why the sites are hurting for editors and stuff isn't getting done. Reguyla (talk) 15:40, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
