Global preferences ready for testing
I am contacting you because of your support for Global settings in the 2016 Community Tech Wishlist. Global preferences are now available for beta testing, and need your help before being released to the wikis.
- Read over the help page, it is brief and has screenshots
- Login or register an account on Beta English Wikipedia
- Visit Global Preferences and try enabling and disabling some settings
- Visit some other language and project test wikis such as English Wikivoyage, German Wiktionary, the Spanish Wikipedia, the Hebrew Wikipedia and test the settings
- Report your findings, experience, bugs, and other observations
Once the team has feedback on design issues, bugs, and other things that might need worked out, the problems will be addressed and global preferences will be sent to the wikis.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:37, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
The Community Wishlist Survey
You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.
You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:23, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for your help with the Wishlist Survey
Hey Izno! Thanks for all your helpful comments on the wishlist proposals. Way too many for me to thank individually so I'll just thank you here. I appreciate your involvement! :) -- NKohli (WMF) (talk) 23:18, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
- @NKohli (WMF): Knowing that I have missed any opportunity to see my inbox light up further because of my contributions to the CommTech survey saddens me greatly. Curses! --Izno (talk) 23:27, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
- I came here to say the same thing. Metawiki unfortunately doesn't seem to have barnstars...? You deserve one :) MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 17:12, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

The 2021 Community Wishlist Survey is now open! This survey is the process where communities decide what the Community Tech team should work on over the next year. We encourage everyone to submit proposals until the deadline on 30 November, or comment on other proposals to help make them better. The communities will vote on the proposals between 8 December and 21 December.
The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors. You can write proposals in any language, and we will translate them for you. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing your proposals!

We invite all registered users to vote on the 2021 Community Wishlist Survey. You can vote from now until 21 December for as many different wishes as you want.
In the Survey, wishes for new and improved tools for experienced editors are collected. After the voting, we will do our best to grant your wishes. We will start with the most popular ones.
We, the Community Tech, are one of the Wikimedia Foundation teams. We create and improve editing and wiki moderation tools. What we work on is decided based on results of the Community Wishlist Survey. Once a year, you can submit wishes. After two weeks, you can vote on the ones that you're most interested in. Next, we choose wishes from the survey to work on. Some of the wishes may be granted by volunteer developers or other teams.
We are waiting for your votes. Thank you!

IP Range block
Hi there! Recently I noticed you blocked the range 18.104.22.168/21. I kept a tab up showing their contributions. It revealed the range was used by MegaMack02, who is also subsequently a hacker. Looking at said user’s SPI archived cases they somehow hacked their way into an unrelated IP 22.214.171.124. From a CU I also consulted, said sockmaster also hacked into an unrelated IP that began with 107 to create the ThomasDuhTankEngine2843 account (now global locked as LTA), and it was an IP accused for vandalizing various pages, including one on a TV series “Chowder” in the past, before the sockmaster’s coming. And here are some tidbits of info the sockmaster said:
MegaMack uses IPs operated by the American VPN provider Norton (). All IPs are currently blocked for 6 months, and previously for 3 months and 1 week (for 126.96.36.199), but I would like to request a permanent block since the listed IPs are not only Open Proxies/VPNs, but there have been multiple hackings into these IPs by this particular sockmaster. Sockmaster has also said that they will repeat their hacking/sockpuppeting on a monthly basis. Thanks. VandalMan247 (talk, contribs) 02:04, 19 January 2023 (UTC)
List of Wikipedias/it
Hello, it's not about my preferences; the visualization of the tables was very wrong, and everything was very wide, exceeding the width of the page. Anyway it seems that the problem was somewhere else and "imported" in the page with your edit, and now it seems to be fixed, so I will restore your edit and check if it's all right.
