Access to nonpublic information policy[edit]

Back in April you told the community and the ED [1] that the goal is for the 3 month time to start (with the announcements) before I go to vacation in mid may. That does not seem to have happened. Please make a statement at Talk:Access to nonpublic information policy. Rogol Domedonfors (talk) 15:23, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

@Rogol Domedonfors: Response made Jalexander--WMF 19:37, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for following up on those two items. Rogol Domedonfors (talk) 21:28, 27 June 2015 (UTC)


Please remove bureaucrat and administrator flag from former WMF staff wmf:User:Erik Moeller (WMF) and wmf:User:Jorm, in case their account be compromised or misused. Thanks.--GZWDer (talk) 09:12, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

By the way, please delete wmf:Template:! (And probably Template:! in other private wikis), see Foundation wiki feedback#Regarding Template:!). Thanks.--GZWDer (talk) 12:59, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Both done, the accounts can't actually log in (the way the block settings work on private wikis) but agree rights should be removed in general anyway :). Jalexander--WMF 22:28, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
FYI: wgBlockDisablesLogin is not enabled in foundationwiki ([2] and phab:T46473), so if their account be hacked, hackers could unblock these accounts and then vandalize foundationwiki.--GZWDer (talk) 05:07, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
Hmmmm thank you I appreciate that, I disagree with the reasoning in that ticket but since it isn't just my decision will touch base with those involved :) Jalexander--WMF 05:24, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Francis Kaswahili[edit]

Is this user banned under WMF Global Ban Policy? If yes, please update WMF Global Ban Policy/List.--GZWDer (talk) 07:33, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

@GZWDer: Sorry for the delay responding here, this got caught in my edit box and didn't save. Sadly WMF Office Actions are always unique and no single policy encompasses all actions we could do since we always take an action we believe is necessary for the safety of the projects and the readers and editors using them. While we created the Global Ban Policy to be an overarching for umbrella for a bunch of, different, permanent type bans this does not (at least at the moment) fall under that. That’s why, for example, it was done from my personal account (and not WMFOffice), mentions an avenue for appeal and was not placed on that list. At this point it doesn’t belong there.
I will say that we sent the Stewards a bit more information so that they had a sense of why we took the action we did but unfortunately we’re not able to do so more publicly at this point.Jalexander--WMF 19:50, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Re: Appeal against my account deletion

That my name is Francis Kaswahili join as a Wikimedia user since 2012 That on 23rd of July 2015 the following another known as Jalexander--WMF deleted the said account without any notice nor informing me about that action, That the banning procedure require consensus with user That the action taken against me was unfair because I don’t think that misunderstanding can cause a deletion or banning users. I might say sorry for delaying of implementing of project because the one also known as National wiki project/tz deleted was deleted by a user known as Phillipe. That Tanzania is among of African country where there is no users even to establish this project is just to harmonize our people to become users. That am not foolish man who can use his resources to promote Wikimedia in the country and to do vandalism, That I can understand if the reason is postponed of dates to our conferences which was been changed for several times. It’s my humble submission that the action taken was false and must be null and void for benefit of the user for interest of promoting Wikimedia which is main objectives WMF, Instead banning users as it has done to me. Hopping that you will consider on my appeal. Francis Kaswahili 17:40, 03 August 2015 (UTC)
