Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Ghilt, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Happy editing!

Superprotect letter update[edit]

Hi Ghilt,

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, 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) 18:11, 26 August 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adjusted text[edit]

There has been a request to inform all who voted in the RfC about interlinking accounts involved with paid editing about the following adjustment in the "statement of issue" on Sept 18th, 2017.

It was clarified that this effort will help deal not only with impersonation of specific Wikipedians but also claims of being in good standing made by those who are not.[1] Thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:59, 26 September 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi. The 2017 confirmation has been closed for almost a year now and should not be changed. -- Tegel (Talk) 10:37, 11 February 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, would you be willing to transfer his critical post to the correct election page of this year, instead of reverting? Cheers, --Ghilt (talk) 11:08, 11 February 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018[edit]


Integrating Wikimedia with education is a powerful strategy for the outreach of Wikimedia projects. Realising this concept, a group of leaders promoted this and formed the Wikipedia Education Collaborative. After some time, this evolved to become a user group, officially recognised by the Affiliations Committee in June 2018. The user group had its first board elections earlier in September. In the process to formalise activities and give a shape the user group for long-term sustainability, we are now revamping our processes. Thanks for supporting us during incubation stages, we are now inviting you to formally join the user group by following the instructions on the members' page. Being a member will allow you to be a part of this wonderful collaboration and also do interesting stuff.

Kind regards

Global ban[edit]

It deeply hurts when I have to read: "productivity (especially at a low-quality level)". I have the impression you never looked at my work (but only on the arguments of my opponents). It is simply not true. Just three examples: [2], [3], [4]. Please compare them with other versions in other languages.--Meister und Margarita (talk) 01:38, 29 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good morning, i'm sorry to have hurt your feelings and i have edited my statement to be more precise. When i wrote that i had the extensive use of in mind, which is imho not an acceptable source at all and i also recall many discussions where wikipedians adressed exactly that to you without acheiving any change in your use of that website. In retrospective, these discussions were futile, and you did not compromise. Compromise is an essential ability in a collaborative project. --Ghilt (talk) 08:06, 29 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is another myth, not based on facts. Yes, we (Donna Gedenk and myself) were both convinced that the reliability of in our field was much higher then the reliability of Yad Vashem. We have checked every single entry very carefully. Yes, we were upset about this attempt to block victims biographies (it was an initiative of the same user who is now asking for the global ban), and we did not accept the small quorum of about five or ten votes (most of them Stolperstein opponents). We wanted a broader discussion and a fair evaluation of within the Portal:Nationalsozialismus. We did not get what we wanted (the broader discussion), therefore we gave up using as a source. This is a very good example where the brutal force of the opponents prevailed. They don't write biographies, but they dictate what sources we are allowed to use. There was no compromise, we were forced to do what they dictated. We did so, but still people like you think, we were the bad guys.
Personally, I think it is very stupid to exclude any source. Every quote and every fact has to be checked. I already found horrible mistakes in ORF, New York Times, Süddeutsche Zeitung and even in the Brockhaus. We are constantly checking and double checking. The whole fuss in the Stolperstein project was purely political and personal. They wanted to stop the project by any means and they succeeded. They did not find any mistakes in the biographies, so they attacked the sources. I could easily accept to exclude completely - if anyone can show me two mistakes in the biographies we wrote where geni was wrong. They did not find even one mistake.--Meister und Margarita (talk) 13:45, 29 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I strongly disagree. is a wiki-similar website and without necessity of references. You should have known and should know that these properties make it completely unacceptaple, without a broader discussion. And i am disconcerted on the lack of insight on this matter. --Ghilt (talk) 13:55, 29 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User script to access other watchlists[edit]

Hi Ghilt,

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)

block in German Wikipedia[edit]

Hi ghilt, I just want to tell you, that I am on meta, now, and a have subscribed on the translator list. I think, that it is the best for me to be here on meta. I wonder, whether I didn´t find meta before. I cannot be without editing and anyway, that´s the language I missed for so long. I just wrote a long E-mail to mabschaaf. I think, I have found the right place here to continue. Maybe I stay in town for the next couple of month, and may be I am moving for a while in summer, but I think, the advantage is, that I will be able to reach meta from all over the world, I mean except from the mountain reagion, because I plan to hike in the next summer.

One more thing, today i received nine pings of you editing my user talk page with three comments and many small corrections. Either you reduce that to one edit per comment or i will deactivate pings from your account. Best, --Ghilt (talk) 14:46, 26 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

He won't. Please accept that. --Ghilt (talk) 14:02, 27 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Ghilt, shall I provide you with info concerning arbcom? The last case we had was a collected family account and not a dummy. --Dodecaeder (talk) 19:29, 27 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, write me an email. --Ghilt (talk) 19:42, 27 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, ghilt, I am a litte bit sad, but only a little. I followed my dreams and I found amazing pages in frWP. It´ll be a lot of work for me, to reveal my knowledge in the french language. It is about 30 years ago, when I was really good in French, nobody believes that nowadays, but I am working on it very hard. May be I am leaving WP:RC and I´ll care only about languages. May be I must get used to doing just one thing at a time and not ten different subjects a week. So, you know, where you can find me. Taking a break doesn´t mean to me, that I quit.

Alors, j´ai vue les pages de la Bretagne et il se peut, que je serais capable de retrouver mes copines dont j´avais fais la connaissance a en échange scholaire. Je me rapelle tous les nom et les espaces. Je vais faire un longue voyage aux pages françaises en internet. Tu ne va me rencontrer plus tôt que l´année prochaine en "Real Life"--Dodecaeder (talk) 09:28, 2 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bon courage pour ton voyage! D'ailleurs, la Bretagne est déjà un tiers de la distance à Santiago de la compostela... --Ghilt (talk) 09:41, 2 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You know what? I am of the opinion, my account is not save. Somebody is able to read my E-mails and check my contacts. That means, that can lead to ANONviolations. It´s not in Wikipedia, its outside the Wikipedia. --Dodecaeder (talk) 18:15, 3 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please, ask Mabschaaf, if he´s got my E-mail about the GDCh-Wiki-Cooperation. Thanks, best wishes --Dodecaeder (talk) 18:27, 3 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, ghilt, würdest du bitte heute meine Benutzerseite, sowie die Benutzerdiskussionsseite in deWP löschen und auf "deaktiviert" setzen? Would you, please, set my user-page on "deaktiviert"?--Dodecaeder (talk) 05:41, 8 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
