If your message is very urgent, you should leave a note on my English Wikipedia talk page.

I am also reachable via email, and if you have an IRC client, you can contact me there as well. I can be found in #wikimedia on the Freenode IRC network, usually with the nick jdelanoy

Hi J. delanoy


Dear, could you fix the table of paralell projects on Wikimedia Brasil/Mutirões/Oficinas WikinINDI page? You reverted my edition but leave behind problems concerning those links. You can start translating it too. Regards, Nevinho 10:56, 18 June 2009 (UTC)Reply

I'm afraid I don't know what you are trying to do. After I reverted, I immediately wished I had not, but I didn't know what to do to fix it. Sorry. J.delanoygabsadds 15:48, 18 June 2009 (UTC)Reply



Hello J.delanoy,

Per the community consensus, I have promoted you to administrator. Congratulations! Please make sure you're aware of the relevant policy. Best, —Anonymous DissidentTalk 06:34, 5 July 2009 (UTC)Reply

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades... (our budget is smaller than Commons)

J.delanoy, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Meta. Please take a moment to read the Meta:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, and Meta:Requests for deletion, but also Talk:Spam blacklist and Talk:Interwiki map), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

A tip: add this page Meta:Administrators' discussion index to your watchlist, it tracks the latest activity to various sections of many of the important pages.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-admin @ irc.freenode.net. You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading although it doesn't always completely apply here at Meta.

Please also check or add your entry to Meta:Administrators#List_of_administrators and the Template:List of administrators.

I just wanted to use the template and say "felicidades" to you. Best regards and welcome to the admin team, —Dferg (talk) 14:37, 5 July 2009 (UTC)Reply

FiLLL abuses people on the internet / wikipedia



listen to your user:FiLLL and tag this guy as a racist criminal who runs around the internet harrassing people. I am not a wiki guy, could you post this to your superiors or whatever?

Two problems with your post. One, if you believe that sort of thing, you need a lot of help. Two, that video has twelve pageviews including mine, which means that the odds that you are not the person who posted it are essentially nil. So explain to me why I shouldn't just block you?

missing archives


Hi. A few weeks ago you deleted the pages Talk:Wikimedia Canada/Proposed by-laws/Archive1 and Talk:Wikimedia Canada/Proposed by-laws/Archive1 Talk:Wikimedia Canada/Proposed by-laws/Archive2 with the comment that the page was moved, but I can't find the new locations of the pages and I can't see the moves in your log. Can you please point me to where they are now? Thanks. --Arctic.gnome 15:23, 27 August 2009 (UTC)Reply

Hi - though not yet official, there a high chance you will become a steward; however, for some reason your account does not exist on Navajo Wikipedia. To prevent the possibility of imposters (as has happened in the past), please take a moment and go there to claim your good name. Thank you. Seb az86556 09:32, 3 March 2010 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for your concern, but there are a lot of projects where I don't have accounts. I am reasonably sure that SUL prevents imposters from taking the same name as an SUL'ed account. Considering how many people have attacked me in the past - mostly on en, but some on other projects - I think that someone would already have created accounts in my name on projects that I have not visited, if it were possible for them to do so. In any case, I visited nv.wikipedia, and it says in my prefs that I am registered (Registration time: 14:30, 3 March 2010), but for some reason, it doesn't show up in the log. J.delanoygabsadds 14:34, 3 March 2010 (UTC)Reply

Referencing Wikipedia "Hematide", I tried to add "associated with chronic renal failure" after the word anemia, but messed up my editing. The source is [ Press Release Source: Affymax, Inc. On Monday April 12, 2010, 4:00 pm EDT ]. Could you do it for me and remove my block. Thanks.

Sinhala Wikipedia


Hi J.delanoy, There is a organised paid editing incident going on currently in the Sinhala Wikipedia. Since we have little enforcement capabilities back there I thought it's to time to inform the stewards. si:user:ෆෙලිඩේ creates a batch of articles at once and append this message to bottom of the pages.

This article has been translated from the English wikipedia by felidae, http://www.felidae.lk.. This initiative is sponsored by the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), http://www.icta.lk. Support and access to rural communities provided by Practical Action (formerly ITDG), http://practicalaction.org/?id=region_south_asia.

The Sinhala Wikipedia community has raised concerns over the intention and the quality of the works of Felidae. For example, fragmenting articles into several parts is a feature of Felidae's editing behaviour. For example, the article si:පෞද්ගලික ජීවිතය (Sinhala for "personal life") is a translation of the en:Barrack Obama#Family and personal life starting from fourth paragraph. By looking closely at their editing I believe they translating it using a software and a dictionary. The more compelling issues here I reckon are, this could be considered as inter-language paraphrasing. Further more I believe no need to tell you that paid editing is controversial. The alleged sponsor of Felidae is the ICTA, a semi-governmental organisation of the GoSL. If we can complete the Wikipedia by automation and paying someone to do that, I believe Wikipedia's principles are in jeopardy. If ICTA (the biggest culprit here in my view) wants to improve this project, better they have a some sort of prior MoU signed with the Wikimedia foundation. The community has started a discussion on the situation in Wikipedia:කෝපි කඩේ#ෆෙලිඩේ ව්‍යාපෘතිය. I'll be so grateful if you could leave your opinion there and do something immediately to relieve the situation. Thanks in advance and cheers--Chanakal 02:33, 21 April 2010 (UTC)Reply

I'll take a cursory glance, but I'm pretty much tied up with exams at the moment, so I may or may not be able to take a deep look in the near future. You may wish to ask another steward to help you. Sorry. J.delanoygabsadds 03:03, 23 April 2010 (UTC)Reply

Hi! Could you please take a look at SRCU about ukwiki issues. A user insists upon running the check though I have understandably explained him all his faults. Seems he intentionally "overlooks" them. --700!n 09:02, 26 May 2010 (UTC)Reply

I do not know where your administrator notice board is, so I am writing to you on your discussion page.

I am a steward, and since this wiki does not have local check users, I gave myself check user rights here for a short time to learn if I could block the person who is attacking articles related to Disney movies. I blocked the IP address ranges, that this person uses most often, for three months. I blocked them so that not even users who have accounts can edit this wiki. I did this because there is no person editing on those three ranges except the vandal. If you wish to block them for longer than three months, you can. If you wish to remove my blocks, please do. I just wanted the local administrators to know that I blocked these ranges, and why I blocked them.

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,

J.delanoy 2 Jiona 2010 à 23:05 (UTC)

You can see the ranges I blocked at this link. J.delanoy 2 Jiona 2010 à 23:06 (UTC)
Thank you for helping me to block this vandal who dirts our wiki for several months now. He always tries to bypass blockages by account-creating. And I hope, by blocking his IP adress range, that we will not deal with him before long.
I also protected the page to prevent him and other potential vandals to vandalize them.
Thank you! --Jagwar 交談 homewiki 08:10, 3 June 2010 (UTC)Reply

Blocked IP



I was recently browsing around on a Wikipedia page, and clicked 'edit' out of curiousity. When I did this, I got a message saying my IP had been blocked until early 2011 for 'cross-wiki abuse'. This confused me somewhat as, so far as I can remember, I've never edited a Wikipedia page. I don't think I even have a Wikipedia account. The message said you were the one that blocked me, so I was curious if you could remember why you blocked me/what it was I'd done. I'm not terribly worried about the block as, as I said, I don't edit pages or use any of the other editable Wikipedia functions - I'm just a bit confused as to why it's happened. Thanks for your help...

At the time I blocked your IP, it was an open proxy. It does not appear to be open any more, so I will unblock it. J.delanoygabsadds 00:35, 23 August 2010 (UTC)Reply

The troubles on Commons


Hi, I noticed your retracted message. Indeed, Commons is a project with troubles. Administrators pretty much do as they like, without accountability. So Adambro was annoyed that a discussion he is tired of had started again, and he blocked three contributors without warning, which he feels is justified because of what had been said last year. Altough commons:COM:BLOCK says that blocks are a last resort. You are of course right that this was a punitive measure, which is very clear because the file had already been protected.

We three were only blocked for a week. On Commons, admins also issue permanent blocks without any reason, you can see that in my own block log. But see also commons:Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Blocks & protections#Please unblock Elkawe. Or look at Rama who had blanned Hcrepin for unclear reasons. When Hcrepin complained, no admin heard his pleas, until I brought it up at the commons irc channel. Then Herbythyme called the block ludicrous, and Abigor unblocked him.

I could go on and on, but I will leave it at this. /Pieter Kuiper 06:21, 7 October 2010 (UTC)Reply

Header added



For the first time I wrote an article for Wikipedia. It was like this. Searching for information on psychic driving in Polish Wikipedia, I did not find any, what I found was an article on English Wikipedia entitled ‘psychic driving’. I decided to translate it just to find out what it is like to write an article on Wikipedia. First I couldn't find a way to add Polish translation to the existing English one and to other language versions. After translated it, I hoped that somebody will notice it and will add my article to another language versions, but instead, the article was deleted. I ask why?

I would like you to notice that my translation groups the information better than the original English version and though follows closely the original, provides only one additional element, the most valuable source on the subject: Adam Curtis's documentary 'You Have Used Me as a Fish Long Enough'. I hope that you know the Polish language and could notice all that I have pointed out here. Anyway, you should have provided the reason(s) for your deletion.

With regards, Dariusz Śmietanka

Steward role


Hi. I am putting myself forward for consideration as steward. Juliancolton is indicating that I may be misunderstanding the role of steward - Stewards/elections_2011/Questions#SilkTork. Would you be able to give me a brief summary of your activities as a steward, so I can make an informed judgement. Thanks SilkTork 12:18, 23 January 2011 (UTC)Reply

From my point of view, in a nutshell, stewards are the ones who do things that no one else can do on a project. If a project lacks admins, bureaucrats, checkusers, and/or oversighters, stewards are the ones who will step in and perform any necessary actions. Setting and removing user rights when there are no local users with the necessary permissions to do so is only one facet of what stewards do, and in many cases, the easiest. You will effectively become a checkuser, an oversighter, and an admin for all projects which have no local users with these rights. It is not as bad as holding those rights on the English Wikipedia, but be aware that you will have people accuse you of abusing these permissions. You will also have to work with communities made up of people who may or may not think the same way you do. Each project has a unique outlook on the world, and beyond the standard global policies of maintaining neutrality, etc., each one has a different set of policies, guidelines, and social expectations. There are even different interpretations of the core policies in a few very sensitive areas.
Even if you do not understand the language of the project, and even if they use a language which you do understand to make the request, people who come to you with requests from these projects will not always come with the same preconceptions that you do. That is why Juliancolton made the point about doing some crosswiki work before running for steward. I cannot easily give a specific example, but it is definitely a very eye-opening experience to interact with people on other projects, especially the relatively smaller ones. It is probably equivalent to my experience when I first started talking with people around the world, after for the entirety of my life talking only to people who live within a few hundred kilometers around my house.
Note that I am not saying that I think you would be a bad steward if elected, but you should know that especially the English Wikipedia has a radically different culture than the other projects do, and it may come as a shock how different other projects are. J.delanoygabsadds 18:03, 23 January 2011 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for your very clear explanation. I have a lot of experience with other cultures. I am a TEFL teacher with experience of teaching a range of cultures, Asian, Muslim, East European, etc. Also, my wife is French, with all that brings - getting married in France, and bringing up our child in both a British and French culture. Do you think it would help if I mention that? SilkTork 09:01, 24 January 2011 (UTC)Reply
I don't think that sort of thing is necessary, but I don't know. The whole "different culture" thing is just what stood out to me most strongly when I began to work on other projects besides just enwiki, and to talk to people who were not based on enwiki. J.delanoygabsadds 00:42, 26 January 2011 (UTC)Reply
I don't know either. Thanks again for your helpful comments. SilkTork 00:58, 26 January 2011 (UTC)Reply

Mal uso de la posición en Wikipedia


Buenas tardes, el motivo de mi consulta es el siguiente:

  Hace dos semanas una persona contactó con un bilbiotecario de Wikipedia alegando que la Organización Mundial por la Paz es un fraude.
Esta persona envió unos documentos falsos para confundir a las personas de Wikipedia. Por este motivo dieron de baja la página por bulo o fraude.

Desde ese momento he estado intentando restaurar la página de Wikipedia y un bilbiotecario tras otro la han estado dando de baja.

No me dejan volver a escribir el artículo y la página está cerrada. Últimamente, el usuario usuario:Gamínedes dice que la página no se restaura por que tiene interés promocional (cosa que es falsa), además de que el artículo no es enciclopédico. La cuestión es que esto es censura. No me dejan escribir el artículo dado que la página está cerrada.

Estamos hablando de la Organización Mundial por la Paz, una organización que lleva más de 20 años funcionando y no voy a permitir que una persona con falta de información y aires de grandeza por su posición en Wikipedia impida que se haga justicia, o en su defecto, impida que se restaure el artículo para crearlo de manera enciclopédica.

Simplemente dice que no se restaura, sin dar soluciones. Si la página no se restaura las personas nunca podrán añadir información, el artículo nunca existirá. Por ello, abogo por la restauración vigilada del artículo para que usted mismo decida si está escrito de manera enciclopédica o no.

Wikipedia es una comunidad muy grande, y se debe abogar por la libertad.

Sin más, muchas gracias por su atención, un cordial saludo,

Blocked account question


Hello, I established the usuario:QorvisEditor handle so that established wiki editors could have a direct dialogue with the Qorvis firm. I was blocked for using an open proxy, which the firm uses to maintain security. The purpose of this editor handle is not to edit article submissions. I am not sure how this handle could be a "sock puppet" or "meat puppet" if we are being transparent about who we are. I would appreciate any advice about obtaining an unblock. Thank you.

Are you ready to block me yet


My block as expired so I thought I would come here first and give you the opportunity to block me first before I do something to earn it!.

Global block of


When I attempted to edit an article I discovered this IP is blocked by you at 22:35, 27 February 2013 on all wikis by on for the following reason: open proxy.

When I visited the Steward_requests/Global/2013-02 page to research why it is considered to be an open proxy I find no mention of the IP nor as near as I can see any containing network block, nor any block with that exact timestamp.

A second point of confusion for me is that I am quite certain I have edited at least one article after that time and before today, although possibly my corporate network could have been re-configured so that my activity appeared at a different proxy.

Regardless of all these things, this IP is the outgoing proxy for the corporate network for the Swedish telecom firm Ericsson (my current employer), and isn't configured to be an open proxy.

Hello again.
