Help test better mass message delivery[edit]

Hi. You're being contacted as you've previously used global message delivery (or its English Wikipedia counterpart). It doesn't feel so great to be spammed, does it? ;-)

For the past few months, Legoktm has built a replacement to the current message delivery system called MassMessage. MassMessage uses a proper user interface form (no more editing a /Spam subpage), works faster (it can complete a large delivery in minutes), and no longer requires being on an access list (any local administrator can use it). In addition, many tiny annoyances with the old system have been addressed. It's a real improvement! :-)

You can test out MassMessage here: testwiki:Special:MassMessage. The biggest difference you'll likely notice is that any input list must use a new {{#target:}} parser function. For example, {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales}} or {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales|}}. For detailed instructions, check out mw:Help:Extension:MassMessage.

If you find any bugs, have suggestions for additional features, or have any other feedback, drop a note at m:Talk:MassMessage. Thanks for spamming! --MZMcBride (talk) 05:25, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Beginning of MassMessage, end of EdwardsBot[edit]

Hi. You're being contacted as you're listed as an EdwardsBot user.

MassMessage has been deployed to all Wikimedia wikis. For help using the new tool, please check out its help page or drop a note on Meta-Wiki.

With over 400,000 edits to Wikimedia wikis, EdwardsBot has served us well; however EdwardsBot will no longer perform local or global message delivery after December 31, 2013.

A huge thanks to Legoktm, Reedy, Aaron Schulz and everyone else who helped to get MassMessage deployed. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:36, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Translation of Module namespace name[edit]

Hello, Matma Rex! I'm an administrator at and I would like to localize the name of the Module namespace. The page directs me at, but I can't find the Module namespace there. I also found the page Lua deployments/Localization of Module, but I see you closed it because the issue is resolved. How should we translate the name of the Module namespace now? Have a happy new year, Rsocol (talk) 18:26, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

The translations should be "Modul" and "Discuție Modul". Thanks, Rsocol (talk) 05:31, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:13, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Editinterface rights expired[edit]

When next week's Tech News issue doesn't exist[edit]

Hey, thanks for adding something for next week's issue. Feel free to initiate the next issue if you need it for some reason – less risk of me (or someone else) missing the hidden item and leaving it there for the translators in the wrong week. (: You could also add it to the talk page, either of the issue being prepared or just the general Tech News talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 14:31, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

The Community Wishlist Survey[edit]


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) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Your temporary access has expired[edit]

Hello, the temporary global access you requested has expired. Just to let you know that If you want it back, feel free to open a new request on stewards' global permission request page on Meta-Wiki later. Please ask me or any other steward if you have any questions. Thank you! — regards, Revi 18:59, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
