Who founded Wikiversity?[edit]

After some research, I have come to the conclusion that you may be the founder or a co-founder of Wikiversity. Or, if not, you may be able to comment on who you believe is the founder of Wikiversity. Please respond, and if you could, let me know on my Talk page that you've replied. Thank you so much! -- Thekohser 18:48, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

I was involved in early discussions about starting such a project in 2003 but had little to do with the launch of the beta in 2006. I suggested the name "WikiUniversity" but Stanford Forte suggested that be simplified to "Wikiversity." I then bought the domain names for Wikiversity and later donated them to the Foundation.

mdf wiki adminship[edit]

Hi, Mav. Please kindly approve mdf:User:Khazar_II adminship sr, week is over. Thank you in advance--Numulunj pilgae 18:26, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Need some help getting my (SUL) account on Test Wikipedia unblocked.[edit]

Hi Mav, I've got an SUL'd account on the Test Wikipedia that got blocked back in '08 when I left my public workstation without logging out and someone was having some 'fun' at my expense; I never really worried about it for a while but I'm concerned that it would cause problems if I try to add an RfA in the future. I couldn't request an unblock there because the admin who blocked me there prevented me from accessing my talkpage. Any feedback is appreciated.

I'm most active on the English Wikipedia; if you want to discuss this there, leave a message on my English Wikipedia talk page. Thanks! GB86 04:45, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Message left at Wikipedia:Requests/Help desk. --mav
Saw the message and the unblock notice. Thanks! GB86 03:27, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Bot status at Russian Wikinews[edit]

Greetings! You recently granted admin rights at Russian Wikinews. I am the other admin there. We've got bot status request that we can't fulfil without a steward. Can you please grant bot status for n:ru:Участник:Diego Grez Bot? It is a credible bot that has already been approved on other projects, e. g. n:en:User:Diego Grez Bot. Request from the operator is at n:ru:Викиновости:Заявки на статус бота#Diego_Grez_Bot. --Ssr 22:33, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

There is no standard bot policy on your wiki, so we will need to wait a week. I created a request at Steward requests/Bot status. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:40, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Your comment at tpi.wikipedia's Haus Bilong Toktok[edit]

Hi Mav. Thanks for extending my temporary administrative status at tpi.wikipedia - I notice you added a comment saying that I should consider permanent administrative status next time, in other words, I assume you want me to apply through the local process at tpi.wikipedia. The problem we have is that even now, tpi.wikipedia doesn't get enough attention from local users to make a local RfA feasible. I'd say a good 70 to 80% of all edits there are either bots or stewards. I hope you will understand that until we're active enough to use the local RfA process again, I'll need to keep applying through the Stewards. Hopefully we'll be lively enough soon to make the site swing :) BarkingFish 18:09, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

That's fine. If I process your request next time and it is still for temp access, I'll extend it for year. --mav

Deletion of b:eo:Ŝablono:Forigu/dokumentado[edit]

Hello. I am not sure why you have deleted that page (you haven't changed the summary). It is the documentation subpage of the deletion template, and you have no Esperanto edits, so I guess it may have been a mistake. --AVRS 19:21, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Restored. Sorry about that. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 23:56, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Wikiquote:ET reference system[edit]

Hello! Would you please add mentioned code in here to here. It should mark the background of references in blue while using them. Thanks in advance!

Best wishes --Kanakukk 15:41, 1 August 2010 (UTC).

Fundraising Committee[edit]

Hi there! Thanks for volunteering to sit on the Fundraising committee. The work of the committee will be really valuable to making this year's annual giving campaign really effective. I've posted an overview to Fundraising 2010, and would love your thoughts on the talk page. I'm also going to try to set up an IRC meeting soon, and hope you'll join for that. Keep an eye Fundraising 2010/Committee for a couple of proposed times! Thanks again... Philippe (WMF) 18:23, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Meeting[edit]

Hi all,

I'd like to have a meeting on IRC this week to discuss the 2010-2011 annual appeal/fundraiser. This will be an "anyone is welcome" type meeting, open to the broad community. During this, Zack Exley and I will take you through our inital thoughts about the fundraiser and its organization, and ask you to join us in a discussion about the (massive) role of volunteers and chapters in this year's fundraiser.

Because of the vagaries of time zones, scheduling live meetings is hard. So, we'll have a couple of potential times, and we'll log and post the meeting for anyone who wasn't able to make it.

The meetings will be held Thursday, 12 August at 23:00 UTC (16:00 PDT) and Friday, 13 August at 16:30 UTC (09:30 PDT) in the #wikimedia-fundraising channel on the freenode network on IRC (irc://irc.freenode.net/wikimedia-fundraising). You can access this using freenode's webclient, which is available at http://webchat.freenode.net/ or by using your favorite IRC client.

Hope to see you there! Philippe (WMF) 20:32, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Fundraising 2010[edit]

Hello Daniel, thanks for showing interest in the fundraising committee. You can see that we've started to develop the Committee structure and I'd like to encourage your thoughts and participation in the formulation of the important role Wikimedians will play in our drive this year. Please leave me a message if you have a specific request from me, otherwise head to the talk pages and lets get started brainstorming! Keegan (WMF), Fundraising 2010 20:15, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Global Bot request for TjBot[edit]

Hi, Regarding this subject, I have forwarded the information to id.wiki bureaucrat but apparently they can't do anything. Any idea ? Thanks. — Tjmoel Icons-flag-id.png bicara 18:01, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Mjbmrbot on bjn wikipedia[edit]

Style sheet in Thai Wikisource[edit]

My Steward, if it is possible, I would like to ask you to insert any "style sheet" in or in respect of the Thai Wikisource for the tables therein are all colourless and have no lines at all. Certain users said it is so required. Thank you so much. --Aristitleism

Message moved to talk:Steward requests/Permissions since I don't know how to do that. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 12:22, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Advice needed about accounts[edit]

I think I have screwed up a bit by taking the wrong route. Recently I made the account "Night of the Big Wind" (home wiki en-wp) as a replacement for the account "Eddylandzaat". (Both sul-accounts). I like to merge the old "Eddylandzaat" with the new "Night of the Big Wind". Due to a block on de nl-wp (home wiki of Eddylandzaat) I can not change the name there.

Can you advice me / help me in solving this? Night of the Big Wind 13:31, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

You made the last edit on Wikipedia before it went dark.[edit]

Right at 05:00, 18 January 2012 (UTC) you made this edit here and then Wikipedia went dark to protest the SOPA initiative. If anyone ever trys to imply you not special, refer them to this. Richard-of-Earth 18:45, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Cool. :) --mav

Wikimedia LGBT[edit]

Wikimedia LGBT outreach logo.svg Wikimedia LGBT+
Wikimedia LGBT+ is a proposed thematic organization that seeks to promote the development of content on Wikimedia projects which is of interest to LGBT+ communities. Proposed activities include outreach at LGBT events, Wikimania and other Wikimedia events, an international campaign called Wiki Loves Pride, and work on safe space policies, among other collaborations and interwiki projects. Active Wikimedians are welcome to join this cause! Please consider adding your name as a participant/supporter. Current tasks include translating pages, building a strong framework here at Meta, and achieving user group status (with the eventual goal of becoming a thematic organization). Your feedback is welcome on the discussion page.

Ghosts from the past[edit]

Wow. You're still here, maveric149? Just checking in, apropos of someone asking me about olden times at WP. ExJHK (talk) 22:23, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Hey JHK! I'm still lurking and edit once in a while but edit OpenStreetMap much more now since it combines my love of hiking, mountain biking, and creating maps from OSM data I download that are used in my volunteer work with the Georgia State Defense Force. --Daniel Mayer (mav) (talk) 23:32, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
