Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Microchip08, and 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. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing!

simple wikiquote[edit]

do you hate me or are you like Synergy's best friend? StaticChristian 20:43, 1 November 2008 (UTC)Reply

I don't hate you. I just like to keep to the policies as much as possible. There are some things you do that I don't like, and I revert. There are some things that, inevitably, I won't like that Synergy has done, and I'll revert him too. I'd also prefer it if next time you post on a Simple English project (not wikt), as I don't go here very often. If you want to talk in private, a wiki isn't the place. My e-mail function is enabled.

XWiki reports[edit]

Thanks for helping out! There were two unreverted edits mentioned on User:COIBot/XWiki/a-to-the-g.blogspot.com. I found them using a tool to check the edits. This tool is linked from {{LinkSummary}} with the question mark. It makes it a lot easier to check edits, although the data isn't up-to-date for the majority of projects at the moment. If you're interested in learning more I suggest checking User:Mike.lifeguard/Screencasts. Mike explains how he deals with the reports and gives a lot of useful tips. There's also some information at Spam blacklist/Help and you can always turn to someone else if you have questions. --Erwin(85) 15:00, 8 February 2009 (UTC)Reply

Ooops, sorry. I remember thinking "ooh, everything's been reverted already" -- suppose I'd better pay more attention. Thanks for pulling me up about it. Also, with the s3 replag ridiculously high, should I still mark it closed when using that tool, or is there another way to check I haven't missed any of the other wikis? Microchip08 @simpleWB 15:04, 8 February 2009 (UTC)Reply
No problem. We all miss something every once in a while. At the moment I use the tool for s1 and s2 and use MediaWiki's linksearch for the projects on s3. As far as I know there's no easier way. --Erwin(85) 15:07, 8 February 2009 (UTC)Reply
Great, thanks. Microchip08 @simpleWB 15:09, 8 February 2009 (UTC)Reply

Global CSS and JavaScript[edit]

Hello Microchip08. You now have global CSS and JavaScript, as you requested on User:Pathoschild/Scripts/Synchbot. You can see sortable logs of each page edited or skipped at User:Pathoschild/Scripts/Synchbot/Archives/Microchip08. —Pathoschild 16:08:53, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. Microchip08 sewb 17:38, 13 February 2010 (UTC)Reply


Hello, just a little note requested by an wikimedia-admin operator: Your access to the IRC channel #wikimedia-adminconnect will be revoked due to you no longer holding administrator access on any Wikimedia wiki. If this is a mistake and you currently do hold these permissions on any wiki and access has been removed feel free to re-request access at operator requests or ask an operator to restore access.

Nice anti-spam work[edit]

Thanks for your work on the COIBot queues, your participation in that space is appreciated. :-)  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:47, 22 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

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 change.org.

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:14, 20 August 2014 (UTC)Reply

Global user page migration[edit]

Hello Microchip08. I deleted your local user pages on all wikis as you requested via Synchbot. You can see the full log on your archive page. :) —Pathoschild 23:02, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! Microchip08 (talk) 23:21, 26 March 2015 (UTC)Reply

Global CSS/JS migration[edit]

Hello Microchip08. You have global scripts and styles in User:Microchip08/global.js and User:Microchip08/global.css, which you import using your local CSS/JS pages. Since August 2014, your global.js and global.css pages are loaded automatically on all wikis. Since you already import them yourself, you may experience script errors or tools being added twice. Do you want me to fix this by removing the imports from your local pages using Synchbot (without changing any other content)? —Pathoschild 20:16, 05 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Pathoschild. That would be great – thanks for noticing! Microchip08 (talk) 20:21, 5 July 2015 (UTC)Reply
Done! You can see the list of changes on your archive page. —Pathoschild 03:45, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Great! Thanks for your help! Microchip08 (talk) 14:59, 25 July 2015 (UTC)Reply
