Superprotect letter update[edit]

Hi MBq,

Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.

Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on change.org, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.

I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.

Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.

Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.

Thank you for your engagement on this issue, and please stay in touch. -Pete F (talk) 18:51, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

No renaming between November 20 and November 27[edit]

Hi,

You’re getting this because you’re a steward or global renamer. The Community Tech team are working on cross-wiki watchlists. We need to add a couple of fields to the localuser table in centralauth database. In order to be able to do this, we’d need to run a script that will get in the way of renaming users. Our apologies – we realize this is getting in the way of your work.

We ask that you do not rename anyone between 00:00 November 20 (UTC) and 00:00 November 27 (UTC).

(UTC means that if you live in the Americas, it will be on the evening or afternoon of November 19 when the script starts running, and if you live in Oceania or eastern Asia, it can be closer midday on November 27 before we can be sure the script is no longer running.)

Phabricator task.

If there are any problems related to this, or you have any questions, please write me on my talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:42, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

Hi MBq, sorry for such a late reply but you message was buried down piles of messages/notifs, as a general principle I have nothing against unblocks made by communities able to manage possible side effects. --Vituzzu (talk) 00:56, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Canvassing[edit]

And what is wront to inform people about such vote? -jkb- is talking about "anti canvassing campaign" which probably means invating people from different communities to vote against -jkb-. Thats not happening.

Why it is not welcome to invite -jkb-'s mother communities to present their POV?

My statement on the projects, was just informative:

== -jkb- žádá o práva globáního přejmenovače ==

Upozorňuji na žádost kolegy -jkb- na Metě o práva Global renamer (česky tam toho moc není, tedy práva přejmenovávat účty na všech projektech). Vyjádřit se můžete jen do 26. 1. (objevil jsem to 24. večer).

Translated to English:

== -jkb- requests global renamer rights ==

I inform you on the request of our fellow -jkb- on Meta for Global renamer rights (there is not much information in Czech there, so the right is about renaming accounts on all projects). You can present your point of view till 26. 1. (I discovered that Janurary 24th in the evening). --Juandev (talk) 09:44, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

I see, and there's nothing wrong with that. Being distrusted by several well-known users certainly is an important issue. On the other hand, some of the summoned people might be not too familiar with the renaming function. The deciding steward could chose to pass over their dissaproval, if he judges it unrelated to the appointment in question. --MBq (talk) 11:03, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Thats up to steward, how he/she/whatever will evaluate it. I just wanted to clarify the word canvassing and weather noticing people is welcomed or not. As -jkb-'s statement of "massive anti canvasing" looked to me that I should be doing something bad.--Juandev (talk) 11:36, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Digital Ocean blocks[edit]

I'm doing a bit more investigation and it seems to be related to this, would you please ask involved users whether are they using a McAfee software? Best, --Vituzzu (talk) 12:08, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Wilco. - de:User:Atomiccocktail was affected in 2016 [1]. I‘ll ask him —MBq (talk) 07:19, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
