OAuth approval[edit]

Hi, can you approve the following OAuth consumers?

  • idwiki-marathon [1.0]
  • newiki-editathon [1.0]

They are both for managing edit-a-thon using the reconfigured tool from Wikipedia Asian Month, but the OAuth token is enabled only for the local wiki. "Judging" process is essentially editing a page on the local wiki to add or edit status of an article created during the edit-a-thon period. Thanks. Kenrick95 (talk) 02:52, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

@Kenrick95: Sorry for the slow response, both approved. - Hoo man (talk) 22:26, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks :) Kenrick95 (talk) 02:07, 19 February 2016 (UTC)


Hi, can you approve this OAuth consumer "maiwiki-editathon [1.0]"? It is the same tool as explained above, deployed for mai.wikipedia. Looking forward for your approval. Thank you. Kenrick95 (talk) 12:55, 25 February 2016 (UTC)


Hi, can you approve this OAuth consumer "wm-cee-spring [1.0]"? It is the same tool as explained above, deployed for usage in Wikimedia CEE Spring 2016. Thank you. Kenrick95 (talk) 12:10, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 11:03, 31 March 2016 (UTC)


Would you mind looking at the croptool [1.3] proposal? Thanks! Danmichaelo (talk) 21:23, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

@Danmichaelo: I've rejected version 1.3 and rather approved version 1.4. I hope that's fine. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 14:18, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, perfect! I discovered that I forgot one permission, so I had to create a new proposal. Danmichaelo (talk) 11:57, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

Block of 2001:590:0:0:0:0:0:0/32[edit]

hello, i'm not sure why you've blocked me–i rarely post on wikipedia. an explanation would be helpful... thanks and i hope we can clear up any misunderstanding. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2001:590:1405:124:55c0:4c28:4cea:aff7 (talk) 08:13, 21 April 2016‎ (UTC)

The block in question wasn't about you, but about the VPN you are (probably) using. As the block only affects logged out users, you should be able to edit Wikipedia (and other Wikimedia sites) just fine using an account. You can create an account on this wiki, by using Special:CreateAccount. Let me know if you run into further problem. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 09:41, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

Request for Input - New Central Notice request process[edit]


Back in February I emailed the CN-admin list regarding part of my role to look into the Central Notice process and see where we could make improvements including: the campaign process; its functionality or lack thereof; and fundamentally the documentation that supports it. You can see many of the issues that I identified at CentralNotice/Process_Review. If there is anything additional that you feel has been left out then please feel free to leave any comments on the talk page.

My first task is to improve the requesting of campaigns by communities and affiliates. I am looking to set up a more formal request process, similar to those used in many projects. The aim is to: increase the transparency of Central Notice; improve the support provided to affiliates (including making such support more consistent); to provide a forum for community input into campaigns.

I have been working on a very rough strawman version of the process and I would be interested in hearing you comments about what such a process should involve and what you think it would require. Please feel free to leave such comments at the process talk page section. I would like to have a working page in place by the end of May. This would not need to be a final version. The process can be improved upon over time as we learn about how well it works.

Given your role as a Meta Administrator who is active in the area of Central Notice, I encourage you to:

Hey @Hoo man:. I just wanted see whether you would be interested in giving any input to a request process for Central Notice. It'll be a requirement of all campaigns on Central Notice to go through it and for me it's really important to get input of the other CN Admins and Meta Admins. It wont be set in stone so we can make changes as we go on but I'd love for it to get off to a smooth start. My plan is to get something in place in the next few weeks so please feel free to Leave comments. Jseddon (WMF) (talk) 03:06, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Hi @Jseddon:. To request a right of global sysop, is need a proces of select a role (carer), beccause the globals sysops or stewards, works in the company of Wikimedia, (global sysop is not only the Wikimedia edits, is a work) and is a work like others works. First, you need a select proces to enter in a one work of the Wikimedia Works. But in the company of Wikimedia, exist others works avaible, (not only the develompent of the comunities). In the company, exist the works of the design, the marketing... And others works, you can select a one work of the all works avaible in the carer pages. You are working now in Wikimedia? Very good! But, you need now all the right of steward to work? OK, you can request now the right of steward, very good. But later of finish the proces of select the work, technicaly you are steward.

You can contact now with me:

  • IRC (I'm in IRC in the morning of America) (Nick: Dorami-Doraemon).

Werbelastige Benutzerseite[edit]

Hallo Hoo man, die Benutzerseite User:Chborusse wurde direk auf die DE Wikipedia-Benutzerseite verlinkt, sodass ich als Administrator der DE-Wikipedia die Seite nicht löschen kann. Der Inhalt verstösst mMg. gegen unsere Konventionen für Benutzerseiten, da Wikipedia kein Anbieter von kostenlosen Webseiten, die zur Eigendarstellung, Werbung, als Linkcontainer oder Publizierung von unenzyklopädischen Texten ist. Eine Ansprache des Benutzers blieb bisher erfolglos, sodass wir Hilfe eines Meta-Admin benötigen. Freundliche Grüße --Doc.Heintz (talk) 16:13, 3 September 2016 (UTC)Wiki-broom.svg

Notice of review of adminship[edit]

Hello Hoo man. In accordance with Meta:Administrators/Removal and because you have made fewer than ten logged administrator actions over the past six months, your adminship is under review at Meta:Administrators/Removal/October 2016. If you would like to retain your adminship, please sign there before October 18, 2016. Kind regards, MF-W 01:16, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Globaler Filter 90[edit]

Hallo Hoo man,

ich erlaube mir einfach mal, hier auf Deutsch zu schreiben (da tue ich mir etwas leichter ;o)

Im deutschsprachigen Wiktionary habe ich derzeit einen angepassten Filter (Nr. 9) vom globalen Filter 90 angelegt (siehe hier):

  new_wikitext rlike '\b[a-k]{16}\n'  /* meine Ergänzung */
| new_wikitext rlike '\b[a-k]{16}$'   /* die vom gl. Filter 90 */
& user_age = 0

Grund: Der momentane globale Filter 90 greift nur dann, wenn der Spam am Ende angehängt wird. Manchmal wird der Spam aber auch mitten in einem Artikel/Eintrag eingefügt. Ein aktuelles Beispiel, bei dem der globale Filter 90 nicht funktionieren konnte, kannst Du hier sehen.

Vielleicht wäre es ja möglich, den globalen Filter 90 auch entsprechend anzupassen. Möglicherweise funktioniert das auch einfacher mit new_wikitext rlike '\b[a-k]{16}[\n$]' & user_age = 0, aber das habe ich noch nicht ausprobiert.

Gruß --Udo T. (talk) 18:08, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

@Udo T.: Danke für den Hinweis, ich habe den Filter auf new_wikitext rlike '\b[a-k]{16}(\n|$)' & user_age = 0 geändert, dass sollte alles abdecken. Grüße, Hoo man (talk) 18:16, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Hallo Hoo man, besten Dank, aber ich kann beim globalen Filter 90 (noch) keine Änderung sehen. Dauert das vielleicht etwas, bis es sichtbar ist (weil es ein globaler Filter ist) oder hast Du evtl. nur vergessen zu speichern? Gruß --Udo T. (talk) 19:31, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
@Udo T.: Da hatte ich wohl wirklich vergessen zu speichern. Danke für den Hinweis. Grüße, Hoo man (talk) 15:52, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Hallo Hoo Man, ich möchte mich ebenfalls für diesen Filter bedanken. Inzwischen werden die IPs bei de-WB meistens dreifach angemeckert: global mit Filter 90, Filter 5 (weil gleichzeitig zuviel Text gelöscht wird) und Filter 11 (der sowieso ähnliche Aufgaben wahrnimmt und den ich um die "Signaturprüfung" erweitert habe). Ich grübele allerdings immer noch: Was für seltsame Ideen hat jemand, der eine Änderung wie Eintrag 9844 um die Welt schickt? Anders als bei shops oder anderen spams kann ich mir hier keinerlei sinnvolle Überlegung (egal ob konstruktiv oder destruktiv) vorstellen. Kannst du dich in ein solches Gehirn hineindenken? -- Gruß Juetho (talk) 13:07, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
