Global templates[edit]

Hi!

I'm writing this because some time ago you supported the Wikitemplates proposal.

That proposal appears to be inactive, but I wrote a very similar and more detailed proposal called Global templates.

Can you please read the proposal (it's translated to several langauges!), and if it sounds good, to support it by adding your signature at the page mw:Global templates/Discuss?

Thank you! --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 12:28, 17 November 2020 (UTC)Reply

bad or good user?[edit]

Hello, 31.5.234.166 (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser) edited ro.wikipedia too. Can you verify (as ro speaker and local sysop) if its edits are good? Dynamic IP, two different users, I don't know. Blocked on wikibooks, anyway.

Hi @Greatder:. The voting closed/completed on 15 March, as NGC 54 noted, so it's not possible to change anyone's vote after that time. But thank you for looking at the proposals again! Some details about the results of the vote are at Abstract Wikipedia/Updates/2021-03-17 if you'd like to read more. I hope that helps. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 16:12, 23 March 2021 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for participation in Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy Month![edit]

Hi, NGC 54!

Thank you very much for participating in Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy Month! My apologies for not sending this message sooner – but be assured, your contributions are very valuable!
The organisers welcome you participation. We hope you had fun! Some users faced the notability issues of the suggested articles; we recognise that the list of suggested articles wasn't flawless.
The project is not ended until all worthy participants receive their souvenirs! There will be another message from the organising team soon about this.
Stay safe, we appreciate you being a Wikipedian that you are -- ViraMotorko (WMUA) (talk) 09:37, 5 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

Test and co-create a new feature for reusing references with different details[edit]

Hi,

this is Lina and Eline from the Technical Wishes product team at Wikimedia Deutschland. We hope this message finds you well!

We are currently working on a solution to help Wikimedians easily reuse references with different details – a problem related to several Community Wishlist Survey wishes (partially) supported by you (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4).

We want to invite you to a user testing session. During the session, you can test a prototype for Visual Editor and provide your feedback. Sessions will take 30–45 minutes, compensation is available. If you are interested, please sign up here (privacy policy).

Please note that most likely, we won’t be able to have sessions with everyone who is interested. We will try to test with a diverse group of wiki contributors. If you’re a fit, we will reach out to you to schedule an appointment.

Hope to hear from you soon, and please let us know if you have any questions!
