Welcome to Meta!


Hello, Mdaniels5757. Welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page.

About this: The different communities have very different processes for making a decision. The German Wikipedia's Meinungsbilds ("opinion poll") is settled by a straight-up majority vote. Comments are optional, discussions are discouraged, and most people just vote without adding any comment at all. The style I'm using at the enwiki RFC that volunteer-me wrote during the last month is something you wouldn't see at the German Wikipedia. Every community has its own approach to these things, and that means that, no matter which process gets chosen, someone's going to feel like the "correct" form wasn't used.

What surprises me is that everyone's spending so much time on the procedural form, and on declaring that one group of editors has rejected the idea completely, but nobody's saying things like "Actually, I do want to put a binding rule in place that says no local project gets to create a local policy that says editors of the 'wrong' race/religion/LGBTQIA+ status should be blocked on sight, and no local group gets to ban those people from attending events" or "Actually, Holocaust denialism is a complete non-starter, and you'll get kicked out of the entire movement if you do that". I don't think any single person could come up with a complete list, but I think that between us all, we could probably up with something that extends our best, most universally applicable standards to the whole movement.

if xwiki grief


I can see that someone tried to edit your userpage here. If the LTAs are bothering you around the traps, then please let me know as there are some defences that are available.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:43, 15 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Billinghurst Thanks. It seems to have calmed down now after the IP was globally blocked (they were doing this x-wiki), but I'll be sure to reach out if it happens again. —‍Mdaniels5757 (talk • contribs) 02:04, 16 July 2023 (UTC)Reply



Well, Skiyomi is banned by the Wikimedia Foundation, fyi, so a glock appeal is not possible at the moment. — Prodraxis {talkcontribs} (she/her) 18:44, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Ah, didn't notice that... —‍Mdaniels5757 (talk • contribs) 22:20, 23 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi, I think I've signed the agreement for CU@simplewiki can you check to make sure I did it correctly? Thanks! fr33kman 19:09, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Fr33kman I actually can't. Only the WMF can verify/process it, and they will update Access to nonpublic personal data policy/Noticeboard when they process it. But if [1] shows "You signed this document" everything should be set on your end. —‍Mdaniels5757 (talk • contribs) 20:13, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply
Yes, it says I've signed the document so I'll just wait. Thanks! :) fr33kman 18:44, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Request for global bot flag for CommonsDelinker



This is a notification to let you know that a new request for the global bot flag for CommonsDelinker has been started.

Please note that the request will remain open for 14 days starting today. You can leave a comment or opinion on the relevant page!

Best regards --Superpes15 (talk)



Hello sir.
Some page on Wikimedia Commons called CommonsDelinker/commands contains the following information:

"Click here to process category move commands immediately."

After clicking, it redirects to https://sbot.toolforge.org/catbot/index.php?ref=cdc, unfortunately the website does not work. Is it possible to fix this problem?

Heroldicas (talk) 20:46, 23 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Heroldicas No, but it should be processed eventually anyways. —‍Mdaniels5757 (talk • contribs) 19:31, 23 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
I understand. And what do you mean by it should be processed ? Heroldicas (talk) 20:26, 23 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Heroldicas Actually, what do you think the website would do? Even if the website worked, it wouldn't move categories when the command is not on the commands page COM:CDC. There are no commands on the page now. —‍Mdaniels5757 (talk • contribs) 00:36, 24 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
