Hello HakanIST, I am writing to you in regard of a guy that he is an administrative in a Wikipedia page. This particular person keeps deleting things without mentioning a link or proof. The page that I am referring to is the greek version of Skanderbeg. If you notice the English version is completely different from the Greek one. This particular person keeps insisting that his mother was Serbian but there's no proof of her being Serbian even the English version says that. I am beginning you to check it out because he has blocked people in editing it.

Help needed @ tr-wikisource[edit]

Hello HakanIST, Could you please review s:tr:Atatürk Şiiri & s:tr:Hasan başusta. The rationale for speedy deletion is in turkish so I need a bit context to add as a deletion reason (and a second opinion too, before deleting them). Thank you in advance. —Ah3kal (talk) 09:35, 22 May 2016 (UTC)Reply

Hello, @Ah3kal: ,rationale for s:tr:Atatürk Şiiri is 'it's not poem' apparently that page is partly copied from s:tr:Atatürk'ün Türk Gençliğine Hitabesi and wrongly named, rationale for s:tr:Hasan başusta is that it's not notable, that page appears to be promotional.

Change war and vandalism by Kumkumuk alias Erdemaslancan on Zazaki translations[edit]

Dear Hakan! How can we stop Erdemaslancan? He ruines the whole Zazaki project. Under various aliases he keeps trying. He is not a native speaker of Zazaki, as he claims it. He can neither southern nor northern dialect of Zazaki. His knowledges are about equal to zero. In addition he still insultes us (annelerimize küfrediyor) every time.

We specifically opted out of Global Sysops[edit]

Hello, we specifically opted OUT of global sysops years ago because we are not a small wiki and we don't want non-Amharic speakers who cannot even understand Amharic throwing their "weight" around. So how is it that u\you, a member of the "small wiki " team, got the ability to do just that?

Also, though I'm not a steward, I made a slight change to a close you made on SRP. There is a |status=local that is preferable to use for cases like that (rather than |status=notdone).

Help design a new feature to stop harassing emails[edit]

Hi there,

The Anti-Harassment Tools team plans to start develop of a new feature to allow users to restrict emails from new accounts. This feature will allow an individual user to stop harassing emails from coming through the Special:EmailUser system from abusive sockpuppeting accounts.

We’re inviting you to join the discussion because you have experience dealing with abusive sockpuppeting accounts and you work across many wikis. We think that your insights will help us build a better feature.

You can leave comments on this discussion page or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.

It is important to hear from a broad range of people who are interested in the design of the tool, so we hope you join the discussion and let us know how it would work best for you.

Wikimedia diversity - What happened at the conference and how to follow up[edit]

Hello HakanIST,
We are messaging you now because you signed up as an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017. We are sharing this message far and wide, so apologies in advance if you are receiving this message twice.

During the conference, we dedicated a full afternoon to discussing the strategic direction and what it means for the work on diversity in the Wikimedia movement. Compiling the outcomes of those conversations, we summarized the key problems and solutions identified, and we created a summary statement. But the conversation is far from over! We still need to hear from diversity ambassadors: (1) what does working for diversity mean at your local context?; (2) what are the needs that should be addressed; (3) what resources are relevant for these identified needs?

We know that diversity gains meaning in context, and this is why we need to hear every voice. Please take a few minutes to go over to the diversity conversation page and add your comments.

If you’d like to stay in touch, and share your experience working for diversity with others, add your profile on our group here.

Thank you and see you on the wiki,

Tech ambassadors, "take two"[edit]

Hello tech ambassador! This month has seen a good influx of new faces in this crew \o/ , so it is time to reactivate our conversations. Now that we have a pretty good coverage of so many different projects, here are some topics for your consideration.

  1. Are there further thoughts on the role itself? I hope the questions available on Meta can help spark them. Please weigh in at Talk:Tech/Ambassadors/List#Tech ambassadors, take 2.
  2. How about we try and organise future collective work in a Phabricator workboard? Talk:Tech/Ambassadors/List#A Phab workboard for us? has all the details to explore this proposal.
  3. Finally, you are also welcome to comment at, should you happen to have suggestions for the Community Liaisons team, currently wondering how to measure "Wiki projects requesting beta features and other early deployments".

We hope to be able to host a live discussion in early 2018; until then, we're looking forward to hearing from you on Meta! All the best, --Elitre (WMF) (talk), on behalf of the Community Liaisons

Open proxy?[edit]

Hello HakanIST,I tell you my situation. I'm a novice editor on this platform and I usually work in es.wikiversity and others. Today, when making an edition, I got an IP blocking notice on the screen with the following characteristics: You do not have permission to modify this page, for the following reason: " Your IP address is in a range that has been blocked in all wikis.

Your current IP address is, and the blocked range is Include all the above details in any query you make about the subject. And I really do not know what to do in my case.

I'll wait for an answer, Thanks Cethos (talk) 15:59, 1 January 2018 (UTC)Reply

@Cethos: You were automatically IP blocked because you were using a globally hard-blocked IP address. The particular block also prevents logged-in users from editing. The IP you were using belongs to DigitalOcean, a web hosting provider, and the reason you were using that IP may be you were using proxy or VPN service. Looks like you are not affected by the block now, as you can leave messages on others' talk pages, so if you turn off the proxy/VPN you should be good to go. -★- PlyrStar93.

Getting started on Phabricator[edit]

Greetings, ambassador!

As recently discussed within this group, we are ready to experiment with setting up a project and its related workboard on Phabricator, the platform used in the Wikimedia movement for project management, software bug reporting and feature requests. It will help us coordinate and cooperate better on projects that should require ambassadors' involvement.

For the time being, I'm just asking that you please add your Phabricator nickname next to your name in the ambassadors' table (you can create an account now if you don't have one already).

New Tech Ambassadors Phabricator board[edit]


You have listed yourself as an active Tech Ambassador, thank you for that!

We have recently set up a board on Phabricator so that you can learn about tasks and updates that are potentially interesting for your community, and take action when necessary. During the pilot phase we are currently in, to avoid confusion, only Wikimedia Foundation's Community Liaisons will mark tasks so that they end up in the various columns. Thanks for your understanding!

Please follow this Phabricator board (learn how to). You'll receive "notifications" for updates in all tasks listed there. In case you choose to receive them as email; we currently expect the volume to be fairly low, but in any case you can learn how to manage it.

If you have any feedback about this board, please leave your questions and comments on the Ambassadors talk page.

All the best, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 13:03, 24 May 2018 (UTC)Reply

Power abuse, Defamation and baseless content problem by authorities of Turkish wikipedia.[edit]

Hi, it seems your mother tongue is Turkish. I am gonna contact you in English. I have a problem on Turkish wikipedia, all problems are reported to the bureaucrat of Turkish wikipedia but he is ignoring everything. I will cite the links and you may read them:

The problem is a patrol of Turkish wikipedia has defamated me (sözlü saldırıda bulundu) 3 times in a month. I have reported it right after the first time he has defamated me, Turkish bureaucrats did not do anything for almost a month. I insisted them to do something and today after insisting they have banned me for a week instead of banning the defamator. Here are the relevant links: All links to the defamations are listed there.

2) I have reported a distortion and a baseless content from an article and asked them to amend it. I have tried to open it into a discussion, a patrol has consistently prevented me from doing so via his powers and the same bureaucrat protected the page. Here is the baseless content:

"Paul Henze, 2003 yılında Zaman gazetesine verdiği demeçte, sözlerinin Mehmet Ali Birand'ın uydurması olduğunu belirtmiş, başkan Carter'a Ankara'daki darbeyi haber verenin kendisi değil, başka bir diplomat olduğunu iddia etmiştir."

BOLD part of the content (başkan Carter'a Ankara'daki darbeyi haber verenin kendisi değil, başka bir diplomat olduğunu iddia etmiştir) is not found anywhere in the cited sources or anywhere else for that matter. They are refusing to amend it. There are other problems as well, they are denying me to do those steps as well without stating any reason to do so. They are giving misleading information in the wikipedia, I tried to amend it but they are preventing me via their power. The whole discussion is here: They are abusing their power. Do something about the patrol that consistently insulted me personally and do something to remove the baseless content. The rest is up to discussion, request them to either come to discussion or change it. --Ruhubelent (talk) 16:35, 14 June 2018 (UTC)Reply

Wikimania Ambassador[edit]


I noticed that you have signed up as a Wikimedia Diversity Ambassador, after the Diversity Conference held in Stockholm 2017. In August this year, Wikimania will take place in Stockholm, and our goal is to use Ambassadors to reach out to local communities, to spread the news about the conference and the outcomes afterwards. The conference theme (still to be announced) will connect closely to diversity. If you would like to be involved as a Wikimania ambassador, please sign up at the Ambassador page at the Wikimania wiki!

A first thing to do, if you would like to help out, would be to translate the scholarship page at the Wikimania wiki into the language(s) you speak!

Tr-vikipedi için bürokrat üstü yetkili[edit]

Tr-vikide Vito Genovese'nin (bürokrat-hizmetli-x-y...) üst üste hesap banlaması sorunum var. Şu ana kadar 3 hesap açtım, 1'i uygunsuz isim kullanımından, 2'si "kukla"dan süresiz yasaklı. Yönetimi gömdükçe geliyor "kukla" diyerek hesap kilitliyor bu şahıs.

1-"Vikicizermalı" ilk hesap, bunun yasaklı olması dert değil. Zaten amacına ulaştı o hesap az biraz. (kayıtları vardır incelersin istersen. bu hesabın olayla da pek alakası yok)

2-"Heleloyloy" ikinci hesap. Bununla yönetimin nereye şikayet edileceğine dair soru falan sordum. Bu şahıs "5 Vandalizm - 13" gibi bir süresiz yasak koydu. Bu hesabın yazılarına/yaptıklarına bakarak bana "vandalizm" ve "kukla" kurallarıyla nasıl bir alaka kurulduğunu açıklaması lazım birinin. (Hakaret ayrı konu, nezaketsizlik zaten benim işim)

3-"Heleloyloy2" üçüncü hesap. Bunu da en son halletmiş bu beceriksiz. Bu hesabın da kayıtları belli. Bu sefer vandalizm de yok sadece "kukla" Vito'ya göre. Heleloyloy ve Heleloyloy2 ile zaten ilk hesapla bağımı yazdım. Zaten bu hesapların açılma sebebi bu yönetimi şikayet etmek ilgilisine. Adam hem hesapları yasaklıyor hem yazdıklarımı siliyor. Gitmiş "Kıbrıs Cumhuriyeti"nde Heleloyloy2 ile yaptığım değişikliği bile "kukla" gerekçesiyle "geri almış". Normal bir konuda "kukla" işlemiyle alakası bile olmayan değişikliğe nasıl saldırıyor bu adam?

TR'nin yönetim zaafiyetlerini sayarak bitiremem burada, zaten her yazdığımda silindiğinden pek yazasım da yok buraya. Örnek açısından bunun sildiği [[1]] . Yani şimdi bu adam:

1-Taraf olduğu konuyu üste götürmek yerine nasıl aksiyon alabiliyor devamlı?

2-Konuyla alakasız vikiyi geliştirecek(veya geliştirmeyecek bu kısmı isteyen tartışmaya açar, ben tartışmam) değişiklikleri "kukla" gerekçesiyle nasıl geri alabiliyor? Bu adamın "Hizmetliler hakkındaki şikayetler" kısmında kendine açtığı şikayet "tarafsızlık politikası"na gönderme yapıyor. Mükemmel tarafsızımız nasıl oluyor da "de jure" "de facto" ayrımının tarafsızlık ilkesine saldırı olduğunu göremiyor da "kukla" diyerek yapılan düzenlemeye saldırıyor? 12:17, 27 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

Collaboration with Growth team on[edit]

Hi HakanIST,

My name is Habib Mhenni, and I work as a Growth team ambassador in the Wikimedia Foundation. The Growth team works on a set of features to encourage newcomers to make edits.

As you are an experienced Wikimedian and you know a lot of aspects of your community, I am contacting you, to ask for collaboration with the team to deploy more features on Turkish Wikipedia.

You already have the Growth features, and it’s been going well! Features started in October 2020. We have 5,800 suggested edits from 1,300 users.

In the coming year, the Growth team wants to make sure that our work is a good fit for the MENA region. That includes Turkey!

Even though the features are already deployed there, we want to work with your community to try out new ideas in your wikis, even before they go to other wikis. We already do this in Arabic Wikipedia, and want to start doing it in Turkish. This involves: us posting ideas for feedback, asking some volunteers to help spread the word, and a willingness from your community to try out new ideas before they are fully proven.

Actually we have the “add a link” deployed in some wikis, do you want to try it? Our next feature is “add an image”, what do you think about deploying this new feature in

Invitation as guest speaker to episode 14 of WikiAfrica Hour[edit]

Dear HakanIST,

I hope this meets you well.

My name is Ceslause Ogbonnaya, from Wiki In Africa.

Last year, we launched the WikiAfrica Hour with our first ever episode featuring outgoing Wikimedia Foundation CEO, Katherine Maher. You can watch it here

Since its launch, WikiAfrica Hour has been instrumental in informing, discussing and unpacking issues at the global level with the African Community and vice versa. Each session imparts vital information about issues that affect the community globally, always ensuring they are seen from the perspective, interest and benefit of the African community. We have also made sure that issues, events and projects that are core to the African community are given just as much weight.

Previous episodes have foregrounded the roles photography (episode 2) and events (episode 4) play in the Wikimedia movement. There have been interviews with previous and aspirant board members (episode 3), a discussion with Wikimedia community members as to the importance of this forum (for Wikimania edition), interviews with Wiki Loves Africa 2021 winners on the role photography plays in changing the visual narrative of Africa, and the team handling Universal Code of Conduct and WikiIndaba 2021 scholarship. You can catch all our previous episodes here

Invitation to be our guest on the next episode.

We wish to invite you as guest speaker to the WikiAfrica Hour episode 14, titled “WikiGovernance:On Board” slated for 8th July 2022, at 16:00 UTC

With the Call for candidates closed and the affiliate voting started for Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees 2022 election, we would love to understand the processes, and changes in the Wikimedia Foundation Board elections so far.

By virtue of being a member of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections committee, you are one of the people we wish to have on the episode, hence our reason for inviting you as a guest speaker.

The vodcast is run live using StreamYard.

WikiAfrica Hour is a live broadcast and will be simulcast on the Wiki in Africa YouTube and Facebook channels.

The episode will remain for viewing on Wiki In Africa YouTube channel after the session.

We look forward to hearing from you, and confirming your availability.

NB: Be informed that accepting to feature in WikiAfrica Hour episodes/sessions denotes consent to all the terms and conditions of CC BY-SA 4.0 license.





More about WikiAfrica Hour

Wiki In Africa started WikiAfrica Hour, a monthly vodcast, to build the community of Wikimedians across Africa by:

1. Interacting with guest(s) and ask questions from the context of and relating to African Wikimedians;

2. Providing a platform for Wikimedians to discuss topics, issues, projects and collaborations to promote synergy and more advanced knowledge within the Wiki communities across Africa, and

3. Sharing current updates, and highlights of Africa Wikimedians activities undertaken by Africa Wikimedians with the African audience, and those globally who are interested,

You can catch all our previous episodes here.

WikiAfrica Hour is activated by Wiki In Africa in support of Wikimedia user groups across the WikiAfrica movement. It has been initiated and facilitated by Wiki In Africa's Ceslause Ogbonnaya (User:Ceslause), Florence Devouard (User:Anthere) and Isla Haddow-Flood (User:Islahaddow).
