Mabuabsdd[edit]

[1] was abusively filed, without local discussion or information, no spamming involved, low level of cross-wiki problem. This is a family of users from a single elementary school, as you can easily see, they may be sharing the same computer in a class, and I have been managing their participation on Wikiversity, where they have been learning, besides wikitext, community norms and guidelines. Given the ages (probably seven or eight), communication has been slow, it takes time and is quite difficult to establish rapport with text.

Blocking them won't work without causing collateral damage and will require continual maintenance. They were, indeed, disruptive, but the disruption has slowed and communication had been opening up, as of yesterday. Mostly they had been respecting keeping their creative writing to user space. There was no problem needing blocking or locking at this point.

Please undo the global locks, unless you believe that policy requires them, in which case, let me know so that I can ask for 'crat action at Wikiversity to allow the education of these kids to continue. Thanks. --Abd 16:58, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

I filed NewPak2's SPI on English Wikipedia and had personally dealt with him on Simple Wikipedia. They impersonated a Wikinews admin as well as being disruptive elsewhere. I don't see how you can "educate" this sockpuppeteer. --Bsadowski1 05:52, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
This is a group of kids at an elementary school. One or more. They do all kinds of crazy things, but they only have a few minutes at a time, I think, on a class computer, my guess. At one point an age was revealed. Seven years old. The writing is consistent with that. (I have a seven-year old girl.) Now, is it possible to educate a bright seven-year old? And how would you know? Wikiversity can handle this, there. I can understand that the kid or kids don't have much to offer at, say Wikipedia. But Wikiversity is about education, and can introduce kids to cooperating with the community, even if just to keep their creative writing in user space or under some class, not in mainspace. You will not improve the behavior of these kids with with the block tools, unless it's done very carefully. Yes, they "impersonated" an admin at Wikiversity too. If you count a seven-year old, pretending to be a cop, a "cop impersonator." --Abd 14:23, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Akela3 → Akela[edit]

Hello, I am hu:user:Akela, from Huwiki. (Akela3 is my provisory name). For unified login (SUL-unif.) purpose I am requesting to usurp the username Akela on ScnWiki (SUL unification) from Akela3 ⇒ to Akela. I put this request here according to advice from w:meta:Steward requests/SUL requests#Akela. You find a confirmation link on my home talk page: w:hu:user_Talk:Akela#SUL (scnwiki). (This request was earlier placed also here and also here.) Thanks for Your help. Regards. Akela 10:56, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

In the meantime I found the SCN request page. I placed my request scn:Wikipedia:Canciu nnomu utenti/Richiestirinomina#Akela3 → Akela. Salut. Akela 13:07, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Removal of user talk page content at Wikiversity[edit]

Why did you remove content from my user talk page at Wikiversity? Why did you provide no reason for removing the talk page content? Did you read the talk page content that you removed? Why did you not explain your action in the Wikiversity chat channel when I asked you about this? --JWSurf 17:05, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

StewardScript[edit]

Hello Melos. I noticed you have StewardScript commented out in User:Melos/vector.js. I just rewrote StewardScript, so it's now compatible with the recent MediaWiki changes and has all the previous features (except instant checkuser, due to changes in MediaWiki's security). I updated the code in your JavaScript, so you just need to uncomment it if you're interested. —Pathoschild 00:04:38, 05 December 2011 (UTC)

Fundraising translation feedback[edit]

Hey Melos, I have a bit of a request to ask from you. We pulled down our banners nearly a fortnight ago for what was a highly successful international fundraiser and brought the curtain down on last years fundraiser. This week however we will be changing payment processors and during the testing of the new system it would be useful to use the time productively on on testing banner text.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to help us improve our italian text using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.


We are going to run the test on tuesday so if you dont see this message till 24 hours after it was sent you can ignore me :) Many Thanks though.

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Melos, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

strange behaviour from an administrator[edit]

Salve Melos,

avevo creato una sintesi delle altre esperienze di reddito di cittadinanza nel mondo nell'articolo collegato, citando fonti esterne a wikipedia e indipendentemente verificabili (presenti già nella versione inglese), ma l'amministratore "ignisdelavega" l'ha rimossa in seguito alla breve discussione in cui avevo tentato di difendere un altro mio contributo (nell'articolo "reddito di base"), che rimandava agli articoli di wikipedia in altre lingue ma senza citarle come fonti in realtà, come "ignisdelavega" mi aveva accusato dopo aver rimosso i riferimenti. ovviamente sei tu l'unico che può giudicare a riguardo, grazie comunque in ogni caso.

cuanto te pagan?

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 15 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that anyone with access to nonpublic information sign the new confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have access to nonpublic information and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. The general confidentiality agreement is now ready, and the OTRS agreement will be ready after 22 September 2015. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain your access to nonpublic information. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,

Confirmation discussions[edit]

Dear Melos,

As you probably know, the confirmation discussions for Stewards have been closed. In order to determine the outcome of these discussions, you are invited to comment on Talk:Stewards/Confirm/2016 before scheduled closure of the confirmation section "one week after the appointment of the newly elected stewards" (Sunday 6th of March, 17:22 UTC), though the closing time might be extended at the ElectCom's discretion for an extra week if it is believed "further input is required before concluding". All stewards are welcome to comment, including those newly elected.

For those who ran for confirmation, consider revising comments regarding you, and replying to those where appropriate. Savhñ 08:01, 4 March 2016 (UTC)


Richiesta di spiegazioni nomina ad amministratore temporaneo in una wiki locale (Wikiversità italiana) di Hippias[edit]

@Hippias: Ciao Melos ti volevo chiedere perché un tuo collega ha assegnato il flag di amministratore temporaneo a Hippias (vedi la pagina di richiesta del flag Steward requests/Permissions) e non permanente ( l'elezioni si trova qui v:Wikiversità:Amministratori/Elezioni/Hippias se puoi rispondimi su Wikiversità grazie --Samuele2002 (talk) 19:07, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

@Samuele2002: In questi casi essendo l'unico amministratore e che la comunità di it.wikiv non è tanto grande si preferisce assegnare il flag temporaneo. Di fatto ha tutte le funzioni tecniche dell'admin, l'unica differenza è che alla scadenza dei sei mesi bisogna chiedere la proroga altrimenti il flag verrà rimosso dagli steward. --Melos (talk) 21:06, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
Grazie ma se si volesse assegnare il flag standard (per evitare anche di rifare spesso procedure di elezioni che si potrebbero evitare) cosa serve o come deve essere la comuità di it.Wikiversità? --Samuele2002 (talk) 19:07, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
Ciao Melos, grazie per la spiegazione (e grazie anche a Samuele2002). Entro la fine del mese prevediamo di far partire altre due elezioni per amministratori, e tutto fa pensare che avranno esito positivo. Anche a loro quindi sarà assegnato un flag temporaneo? --Hippias (talk) 10:42, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
@Samuele2002 and Hippias: Non serve un elezione ma basta scrivere due righe su Wv con i supporti e chiedere la proroga su meta con il link della discussione locale. Magari per le prossime elezioni si possono assegnare flag temporanei con scadenza annuale. E' un passo obbligato per una wiki che era senza admin. Più in là si potrà valutare il flag regolare --Melos (talk) 13:39, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
OK grazie --Samuele2002 (talk) 18:03, 13 March 2016 (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) 19:39, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Requisiti per assegnare il flag di Burocrate su una wiki senza burocrati (it.Wikiversità)[edit]

Ciao Melos sono sempre Samuele2002 ti avevo contattato tempo fa per la questione del flag di amministratore temporaneo di Hippias su Wikiversità in lingua italiana. Ma questa volta ti volevo chiedere nelle wiki che non hanno burocrati quali requisiti servono perché gli steward assegnino il flag di Burocrate? Te lo volevo chiedere perché avevamo gia fatto più di sei mesi fa una votazione per eleggere Hippias a burocrate ma era stata rifiutata dagli steward perché era troppo pivcola la wiki. Ora abbiamo 4 amministratori più di 70 modifiche al giorno e molti utenti attivi. Ma basta o serve qualche altro requisito? Grazie mille in anticipo :) --Samuele2002 (talk) 11:09, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

? --Samuele2002 (talk) 23:33, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
@Samuele2002: Per la questione burocrati in genere si valuta la comunità e il numero di richieste (es assegnazione bot) che attualmente visto il basso numero possono essere gestite dagli stew. In linea di massima puoi dare un'occhiata a questo --Melos (talk) 01:02, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
Va bene grazie mille :) --Samuele2002 (talk) 06:38, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Ciao Melos volevo chiederti un parere: da più di un anno sono membro del SWMT e faccio molti annullamenti di vandalismi in tante wiki e in molti casi mi ritrovo a dover annullare più modifiche vandaliche dello stesso ip/utente nella solita pagina. Per questo volevo sapere se secondo te è il momento per fare richiesta per l'assegnazione del flag di Global_rollback oppure se è meglio aspettare ancora qualche mese. P.s se può essere utile sono amministratore di it.wikiversity beta.wikiversity outreach wikimania2017 test e test2. questi sono i mie contributi globali. Grazie in anticipo! :) --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 17:16, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

About "Xoser@diq.wikipedia"[edit]

Hello. Can you look at this topic? Xoser (talk) 02:09, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

About Xoser of diqwiki[edit]

Hi, please may you look at this: [2]

Xoser's contributions to Zazaki Wikipedia. They are split into three parts:

  • 15 April 2017
  • 19 Septemmber 2014
  • 1 June 2010

2017, 2014 and 2010. All of Xoser's contributions are intermittent, not continuous. This user is not active and does nothing about stewardship of Zazaki Wikipedia. Already there are only three active users in Zazaki Wikipedia and two of them Asmen and Mirzali are sysops. And I'm one of most active users of the three users. So we don't need another sysop for Zazaki Wikipedia. Already it's a small wiki. How can three users be sysops? There are only three active users. It's unnecessary.

Two sysops (Asmen and Mirzali) and I, we are agreed about removal of Xoser's system operatoring. And community of Zazaki Wikipedia also agreed about it [3]. Vuzorg (talk) 14:34, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

Please start a new local discussion --Melos (talk) 16:03, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
I understand, but already there is a consensus about removal of Xoser's sysopship on Zazaki wiki and so his sysopship was removed a few days ago. Do we really need a new local discussion? Vuzorg (talk) 16:29, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
Vuzorg is right, I agree. --asmên 13:09, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Help design a new feature to stop harassing emails[edit]

Hi there,

The Anti-Harassment Tools team plans to start develop of a new feature to allow users to restrict emails from new accounts. This feature will allow an individual user to stop harassing emails from coming through the Special:EmailUser system from abusive sockpuppeting accounts.

We’re inviting you to join the discussion because you have experience dealing with abusive sockpuppeting accounts and you work across many wikis. We think that your insights will help us build a better feature.

You can leave comments on this discussion page or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.

It is important to hear from a broad range of people who are interested in the design of the tool, so we hope you join the discussion and let us know how it would work best for you.

For the Anti-Harassment Tools team SPoore (WMF), Community Advocate, Community health initiative (talk) 21:50, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

Return to scn.wiki after long absence[edit]

Hello Melos, I'm not sure if you remember me, I was one of the co-founders of scn.wiki back in Oct 2004, and the first sysop, I then had a very long break for a variety of personal reasons, but I now have plenty of time to re-dedicate to scn.wiki, which I've started doing the past week. I'm actually quite happy to be a normal user and just edit, but I now realise it would be useful to have admin rights so that I can return to doing stuff on the main page, like article of the week, etc. There is such minimal usage right now (apart from me and vandals), that I'm not sure how long it would take to have someone with authority logging in to make the change. I'm hoping you might be able to help me, thanks, pippu - (waarom? jus'b'coz!) 02:16, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
