How to...?[edit]

Hello, Could you please give me an advice in regard how to place a formal complaint against an administrator? I would like to point out an issue at slovak Wikipedia. Thank you.

Superprotect letter update[edit]

Hi Mentifisto,

Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.

Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.

I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.

Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.

Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.

Thank you for your engagement on this issue, and please stay in touch. -Pete F (talk) 18:14, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Log in problems[edit]

Helle Mentifisto. I can see that you still have to rename my previous username Søren1997 12 wikis. It's like a problem since I can not log on before it's done. I for følgene voce when I try to come: "Logon unsuccessful. Your account is currently being renamed or merged. View the status" These,,,,,,,,,, and Greetings Sorenhk via IP -- 20:56, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Denver Stevenson[edit]

Hi. Reagarding the Denver Stevenson account that you recently globally locked for spamming, they came to my attention because they recreated the userpage of someone I had previously "soft" blocked for simialar, though less serious issues. In looking through their contribs I see they did this to more than one deleted userpage. So, I guess what I am asking is do you think there is cause to run a checkuser on the account to see if it is linked to these others? And if so is that somehting you could do as a steward or would it need to be done by local en.wp CUs? Beeblebrox (talk) 21:23, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I've done so at loginwiki which found Menezes Ramados, Oval Joe, Rin Tin Tin Ticker, Stockerwell, The true foreign rope - as linked accounts which didn't yet edit. -- Mentifisto 21:28, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
