Wikimedia Meet ticket request[edit]

Hello @Majavah: I would like to test Wikimedia Meet for our up-coming Viquitrobada (Annual Catalan Wikimedia Summit). Thus if you, or any other ticketmaster, can provide to me a token for creating an account it would be great. You can use Special:EmailUser/Lluis_tgn. Thanks! --Lluis tgn (talk) 03:25, 5 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Editing team has scheduled a major update to mw:Extension:DiscussionTools (the new Reply tool) for next week's deployment train. Since you invoke the feature from a script (I do, too), you're probably going to see that update next week, before it's officially released in the mw:Beta Feature system. The new update will use a similar system for starting a ==New discussion==. As before, full-page wikitext editing will not be affected. There is more information on the project page at mw:Talk pages project/New discussion.

If you encounter problems next week, please ping me or leave a note on the talk page for the project. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 22:08, 12 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help me[edit]

Hi Mr.Majavah can you help me one thing: block me forever, global block, I just want to leave all wikipedias forever, never back. I'm really want to go, forever. Đông Minh (talk) 09:52, 17 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You can request to vanish your account if you want to leave permanently. "Block me forever" isn't something that is normally done here for the reasons that you are looking for. Leaderboard (talk) 09:56, 17 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I do not know how, where, where's the page request to vanish account. Đông Minh (talk) 10:03, 17 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @Đông Minh:, Not sure why you are asking me since I can't do any of the actions you want, but if you want to vanish please see courtesy vanishing. Thanks. Majavah (talk!) 10:05, 17 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I do not want to rename, i want to stop everything, better you should be block me, global block, i really so tired, hopeless, wiki like the hell with many devils, everyday I'm opposite many stupid mans, all my work on wiki sometime I think it nothing, my life will be nothing if I continue to spending my time in wiki. i really don't want it any more. Đông Minh (talk) 10:14, 17 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Why, you are an Administrators, right? Đông Minh (talk) 10:17, 17 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Đông Minh: As the box on my userpage says, I am an administrator on, not here on Meta. I'm not exactly sure on the current practices but I believe that users are not blocked here on meta or globally locked by self-request, other wikis might have different policies on that. Can't you just stop using your account, or is there a reason why do you want it blocked? Majavah (talk!) 11:00, 17 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
???, alright, thank you! Đông Minh (talk) 12:22, 17 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

MajavahBot down?[edit]

The bot appears to be down. Jon Kolbert (talk) 15:52, 15 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Jon Kolbert: Fixed, thanks! The Toolforge job got stuck somehow, seems to be working now after I force restarted it. Majavah (talk!) 16:55, 15 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It appears that the bot has been lagging since yesterday again. Some new reports are getting closed, but there are lots of yesterday's open reports that have been done for over a day already. ~~~~

Looks like it was getting confused by questionable wikitext syntax. Fixed now? Majavah (talk!) 13:02, 1 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Wow, I had the thought it was some syntax problem, though I only looked at some of the unclosed reports on their own and couldn't find anything exceptional. Thanks for fixing it; the bot has now closed over 40 reports. ~~~~

deleting a tool[edit]

Hello. I hope you are doing well.
I am not sure if you have the authority to delete a tool on toolforge (, but if you have it, would kindly delete my two tools namely kiranbot2 and kiranbot3? There were some experiments on it, and now I would like to start fresh. If you do not have the authorisation to delete a tool, then who should I contact? (Kindly ping me when replying.) Regards, —usernamekiran (talk) 05:00, 23 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Usernamekiran Hi, I've marked your tools for deletion, they'll be automatically deleted in about a month. Next time please file a Phabricator task in Toolforge (Tools to be deleted). Thanks! Majavah (talk!) 09:23, 23 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikitech block (I am posting this here since blocking on Wikitech also locks your account)[edit]

Why did you block my account? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 21:34, 28 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ilovemydoodle Because your edits were not helpful and some of them were inserting wrong information. Taavi (talk!) 05:30, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
When did I insert wrong information? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 06:42, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For example here. Taavi (talk!) 07:26, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Taavi: I did not do that intentionally, I was just misunderstood the very broken English on those pages. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 07:47, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I misunderstood the text on other page and thought that the server had been changed. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 08:53, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
May I be unblocked? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 10:26, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello. I hope you are doing well. Your input/help here would be appreciated a lot. —usernamekiran (talk) 17:49, 15 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Dear Taavi, dear Legoktm,

Thank you! Would you mind sending another one as well so that I can create an account for the Wikimedians for Sustainable Development user group too? Ainali talkcontributions 23:07, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I read it, and don't worry. This is not a company, the user group has no products or services to sell or advertise, and don't care about SEO or loyalty. I am pretty sure it'll be fine. Ainali talkcontributions 18:52, 10 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Archival of SR pages[edit]

Now JarBot is globally banned do you plan to archive other Steward requests pages in the future? Thingofme (talk) 14:30, 9 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Thingofme Yes. I have the code mostly ready for that, but unfortunately I'm rather busy this weekend. I'll try to get to it early next week. Taavi (talk!) 18:03, 9 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Will it be ready soon, so people don't have to manually archive page in the absence of JarBot? Thingofme (talk) 15:04, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Notice about SRM[edit]

The archive page for January is /2023-01, not /2023-1. As I don't have the right to edit archives please move it for me, and fix the bot. Thingofme (talk) 04:03, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Also you should add the header for each archives. Thingofme (talk) 14:48, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Order of sections in SR* archive[edit]

Hi Taavi, for the archive page Steward_requests/Global_permissions/2023-01, sections are placed in a strange order (compared to 2022-12's). In the past JarBot will create a blank page contains only subtitles, but now it was locked. Would you mind adding the "create blank archive page" feature in MajavahBot? Thanks.

Hi Taavi, I was wondering if I could get an invite for the Wikis World Mastodon Server. Many thanks in advance for my request.--Owula kpakpo (talk) 08:07, 24 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

MajavahBot down[edit]

Hello, Taavi!

My homewiki (SqWiki) relies on MajavahBot for all its archival processes. It has been down since August 2022 and the lack of its work is really starting to be felt on high traffic pages such as our village pump. Any way to get it back? Klein Muçi (talk) 14:31, 10 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Klein Muçi Hey! I finally took the time to look at the issue and fixed it. The bot is now working normally. Sorry it took so long! Taavi (talk!) 11:22, 16 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you very much! I was really glad to see it back to work now. Maybe not now but can the bot me made to understand resolved templates? Take a look at these kind of pages:
