Comcat Update? category:Diagrams_about_the_COVID-19_pandemic?uselang=ja

Hi, Minorax, great work you contribute esp for readers coming to wikimedia projects to cope with uncertainties. That said, can we update a link in your recent edit? Because I originally added that link, Commons recategorized, and people are not always aware if language switch which is better if a reader doesn’t read English very much.

Is it ok I update the link to the following? I wish we are amicable and agree on our best effort, shall we?

Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 13:07, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

@Omotecho: Hi, I've updated the link (misread your message, sorry). Kindly check. Minorax (talk) 13:10, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
Admire how fast you are! Confirmed, thank you very much. May I ask you to review later translation of mine please? Added note as link to jawp, but the original en text puzzles me. Why “ Utilizing English Wikipedia's (enwp link here) article“? It is an ordinary interwiki link... Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 15:13, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
@Omotecho: I believe that you're talking about the [[$enwp1|2019–20 coronavirus pandemic]]? If you click on the Google link and scroll to the bottom, it states "Data comes from Wikipedia". "Utilizing English Wikipedia's 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic article" is used to indicate where Google obtains their data from. As such, I don't think the jawp link is needed as the purpose for that line is to act as a source. Minorax (talk) 15:26, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
What a clear cut indication you offered me! I absolutely agree we don’t need such link to jawp. Thank you indeed to take time and look further into the matter, and please accept my heartfelt appreciation for your guidance. Kindly also edit the comment title as you wish, I hope. Domo arigato gozaimasu. Regards, --Omotecho (talk) 13:42, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Global watchlist - Update 6


Hi, I understand your confusion. The problem is that everything here is some unbearable machine translation that is less understandable for a Romanian reader than just the English original. I didn't, and I still don't, know how a translation can be completely removed. Please assist. Gikü (talk) 06:36, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

@Gikü: Can you give me the links for those that needs to be completely re-translated so I can nominate them for deletion? Minorax (talk) 06:38, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
I thought I did. Doesn't the link work for you? Gikü (talk) 06:40, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
@Gikü: So basically is everything? Minorax (talk) 06:41, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
Yes! I will look through the anonymous account's contribution list to see what other damage they have done. Thanks. Gikü (talk) 06:51, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
@Gikü: Ok, just link those extra stuff you find. Thanks. :) Minorax (talk) 06:52, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!

Mop (less heavy).svg

Congratulations, Minorax! You now have the rights of an administrator on Meta-Wiki. Please take a moment to read the Meta:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, and Meta:Requests for deletion, but also Talk:Spam blacklist and Talk:Interwiki map), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-adminconnect. You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading although it doesn't always completely apply here at Meta. Please also check or add your entry to Meta:Administrators#List of administrators and the Template:List of administrators. You're also allowed to subscribe the metawiki admins private mailing list. Again, congratulations and welcome to the team. --MF-W 13:53, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

About that Romanian "translation"

Can you please go ahead and delete these? We talked on this subject about two weeks ago. Gikü (talk) 17:02, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

@Gikü: I've only deleted the long ones. Is it ok? Minorax (talk) 04:23, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
I don't get the usefulness of scattered Romanian text in a long English page, but I went ahead and reviewed those short translations which were almost all wrong anyway. Have a nice one. Gikü (talk) 08:17, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, I didn't see that. Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 13:22, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for assisting with administration

You provided advice about organizing the meeting notes for our Wikimedia community organization, discussed it with the group, waited for us to have a meeting, then when we decided the matter you executed the change. You are not even a regular attendee or participant in this group's activities, so that makes your assistance even more welcome and unexpected.

I really appreciate what you did because many of our members are members of other Wikimedia community organizations, and I hope that we can demonstrate to them a precedent and lessons learned for organizing the notes of their other groups. Thanks for the several favors you provided. You have demonstrated expertise for having the idea, good community conversation, and practical execution skills of putting everything together to make it work.

Youe request for Copyright on a promotional poster of Sridevi

It was a common practice in the Bollywood and most Indian cinema industries to post promotional posters in public and newspaper media. Pictured in those years were not copyrighted to American copyright laws. Also during the time the Indian copyright industry lacked rules of rights reproduction. There will not be any challenge from any source in regards to reproduction of this picture. Therefore, since the picture added to the article is not Vandalism and it portrays the actual beauty of the artist during her career in good faith, you must consider letting the picture stay in the article

Thanks Srajakumar (talk) 08:23, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

@Srajakumar: Having no clear copyright status is not an excuse to leave an image on commons. See c:Commons:Project_scope#Precautionary_principle. --Minorax (talk) 08:31, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

OK I'll add a picture from the public domain. No-one gave you the right to be as such. You are abusing a perfectly legitimate system with your peremptory aenbien authority.

@Srajakumar: I abused nothing. This is the policy of wikimedia commons, which was determined by the community, I’m simply just telling you that a permission/source is needed as long as it isn’t your own work. Minorax (talk) 06:05, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

Whatever security watchman, go catch some vandals.
