Ciao Nemo[edit]

Qui ho avviato una discussione che ha generato un entusiasmo senza precedenti nel bar di commons. I molteplici intervenuti però non mi hanno chiarito le idee. Puoi vedere se per il Penn e per le altre istituzioni che sempre più accettano di fornire immagini a strumenti come Wikipedia ma negando il consenso a un utilizzo commerciale si può generare un template tipo il Mibac? Insomma Commons accetta quelle immagini come accetta quelle museali italiane? Sperando in un tuo intervento chiarificatore ti invio gli auguri per uno splendido 2015 anche se in ritardo. baci --Xinstalker (talk) 13:06, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

request from mr wikipedia[edit]

Hi,

Seasons Greetings, at this page on mr-wikipedia we had a brief discussion in july 2014 and decided to suspend local media file uploading for non sysops for a while to bring in awareness and desciplene on file licencing and copyright issues. While those issues are still not completelely sorted out still there we find a need to be flexible and allow file uploading to all from 21st Jan to 7th june; the reason being jan to may month has lot of important days and celebrations regarding Marathi language and May month is school holiday season off line marathi students tend to visit Marathi Wikipedia and upload phographs for photothon . it is emotional connect and some specialy developed android apps are tuned to marthi wikipedia.

So local community wishes we allow local uploading from 21 jan to 7th june. Since I have not started and used to new facility in place of bugzill I will apreciate your support in this respect to file the bug on our behalf

Hi, waiting for your kind reply Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 10:53, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I want to help but I don't know how to act on this request. Either you want local uploads, or you don't. We don't do time-based changes to this. So, please decide what you want, and let us know.
How hard is it to fix the android apps in question? --Nemo 08:11, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

It is about making people used to marathi wikipedia, creating an emotional connect. once those photographs are uploaded through app in a cource of time orgnisors do transfer usefull images to commons also. In any case I am not the app developer and orgnisor of various events events. And all the uploading necessarilly wont be from events or android either. There is no pint in forcing single solution, I suppose.

Bye the way with little effort I could file a bug on phabricator please let me know whom to give follow up so that the things will work as people want.

Relevant task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T87771 . (Nemo, you have a message on the same topic at User_talk:Nemo_bis/Unused_local_uploads#Removal_of_oc:wikipedia.) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12:59, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Ok, got no reply on the task either about the apps in question. "Photothon" doesn't find anything, "फोटोथोन" little more. I see one user welcome for the photothon. w:mr:विकिपीडिया:चावडी/इतर चर्चा/जुनी चर्चा १ has instructions which don't include any app. If you link the apps in question, I'll try to fix them.
  • If [1] is what you did: a contest doesn't work well if users have to wait 4 days, are you sure local upload is better? Perhaps you also want to allow any user to upload, as happens in Commons?
  • We can enable uploads, but w:mr:MediaWiki:Licenses is empty. Special:Upload wouldn't really work anyway. According to the instructions above, you only want users to upload self-made photos under free licenses, right? Those images are also allowed on Commons, where cc-by-sa-3.0 is translated. I don't see it yet on mr.wiki.

When you have fixed MediaWiki:Licenses and decided what to do about the 4 days restriction, let us know. --Nemo 11:39, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I found w:mr:वर्ग:फोटोथोन - २०१२. Is there another category for the other years? This one contains 1300 files, but most of them seem to be copyvios. I'm glad to help cleaning up, as you have a big backlog. --Nemo 13:06, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

SUL announcement translations[edit]

I've updated the general announcement as well as the personal announcement to clarify that users can use Special:GlobalRenameRequest now on their local wikis, as you probably saw I emailed the translators list about getting the strings localized. Would you mind if I followed up with the translators who worked on these messages that you contacted originally, or would you prefer to do it? I'm just fine doing it myself but I don't want to step on your toes and duplicate communication if this is something you are doing/planning on doing. I plan to start notifying accounts to be affected by email and talk pages within the next couple of weeks once legoktm has built the Special page that will expose the users-to-be-renamed table locally for all wikis.

wikisource error with OCR from IA book processed in 2008[edit]

Hello Nemo_bis,

In a help discussion at wikisource your name was provided as a possible IA admin who would give some advice about this book - https://archive.org/details/irishemigrationt00duff - that has errors in processing it for wikisource - the OCR routine at the time -2008- could not handle complex tables that take up almost an entire page. This situation has happened before. Perhaps this may be time to describe the preferred procedure.

https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Scriptorium#Why_no_automatic_ocr_text_layer_.3F

Which of these 2 possible directions would give a better result:

1 - Have an IA admin re-derive the file on IA

OR

2 - add the pdf to IA with different file name and use the subsequently derived files. Note earlier today I added the pdf to IA with a slightly different name - https://archive.org/details/irishemigrationt01duff

Thank you for your input. Robin2014 (talk) 20:45, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Converter for krc[edit]

Hello, Federico!
I appreciate your supporting our project.
I've made the list of example conversions from Cyrillic to Latin (here).
Should I do something else? --Iltever(talk) 06:51, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Nemo.
I would like to turn your attention to my mistake : "ацентилен" => "atsetilen" (line 135).
The correct transliteration undoubtedly is : "ацетилен" => "atsetilen". Sorry for my carelessness.
Is there anything I can do? --Iltever(talk) 09:12, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry one more time. There is one more mistake: "Юголсвия" => "Yugoslaviya" (line 176). The correct: "Югославия" => "Yugoslaviya". --Iltever(talk) 13:50, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately I don't know much about machine codes.... I have to see the words. --Iltever(talk) 14:59, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Nemo. I've found some discrepancy in my example conversions. Perhaps this conversion for the character "Щ щ" (lines 143, 144) will not make a failure: « Щ щ » щётка, щёлочь = « Şç şç » şçötka, şçöloç. --Iltever(talk) 18:11, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi Nemo! Sorry, I was just passing by and I noticed you are working with cyr-lat converters. If you are really working with them, could you please have a look at the crh: converter? It is on Bugzilla/Phabricator for years without activity - see phabricator:T23582, so could you please have a look at it when you have time? Thanks — NickK (talk) 01:25, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Sorry, but I doubt I can help. The krc converter is moving (slowly) only because they sent a patch themselves. I'm only helping add tests. --Nemo 07:40, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Nemo. The main test for the KRC-converter succeeded. What's the next? Should I do something? --Iltever(talk) 15:23, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Federico!

Sorry for disturbing. I didn't catch what kind of code corrections had to be made here. Could you help with it? Thanks. --Iltever(talk) 21:05, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Domanda sui bot[edit]

Mi sta capitando di trovare molte talk rosse in cui inserisco il template di benvenuto. A chi posso chiedere per fare fare questo lavoro a un bot? Mi sembra strano che nessuno se ne occupi.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:13, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

io do un benevuto chi ha abbastanza contributi globali e ha fatto modifiche recenti, solo che non vorrei fare la figura di quello che fa queste cose per ammazzare il tempo.

Trademark policy icons[edit]

Hi Nemo, accidently I saw that the TM-icons are as well "Bad SVG" as some of them very poor that it even can even be seen in the small display. After some of them had been made error-free I made them a bit better; to others I made alternatives. Because it is your domain I let it to you whether you will take the better images, or not.

Needed help for telugu wikiquote[edit]

Hi,
Greetings. These days I'm working on telugu wikiquote and found that you've removed local file upload due to very less activity there. It is a good decision for that time, but now handful of telugu wikimedians along with me are working on the project. We are very much need in uploading local files in telugu wikiquote. So, please consider reinstallation of local file uploads.
with regards,

Domanda sui sockpuppet[edit]

Scusa se ti faccio un'altra domanda preliminare ma sto tentando di capire. Su meta esiste un archivio centralizzato di tutti i sockpuppet individuati a livello locale? mi sembra che sia il blocco che la regolamentazione dei sockpuppet manchi di centralizzazione, ma con il SUL ci sarà pur qualcuno che si è messo a studiare il problema?--Alexmar983 (talk) 00:57, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

appunto è dal 2008 che si sta centralizzando la cosa, il SUL finalization dietro l'angolo (forse sarà postposto ma comunque nell'orizzonte degli eventi), ma ancora oggi le norme per la creazione di sockpuppet leciti non sono omogene fra una wiki e l'altra, e se un sockpuppet viene individuato e magari bloccato su una wiki locale non è chiarissimo se e quando questo venga non dico bloccato ma almeno segnalato su altre wiki. Se un'utenza è cambiata e si è chiaramente dichiarata come erede di un'utenza defunta in locale, non è chiaro dove quest'informazione può essere riportata a livelo globale a beneficio di tutti... Mi sembra tutto ancora un work in progress. --Alexmar983 (talk) 11:25, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
ho capito, ma il blocco è solo una parte della storia, ti ho parlato p.e. di utenze defunte rinate, di sockpuppet leciti etc. Anche nel caso del blocco è abbastanza disorientante p.e. quando il blocco a livello globale non viene comunicato in locale..--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:08, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Re: Wikimedia chapters/Reports/Wikimedia Italia[edit]

Viste le indicazioni generiche ricevute in lista, a seguito di domanda diretta, sto procedendo nel seguente modo, in ordine di priorità:

  • traduzione delle news man mano che escono
  • recupero del backlog delle news
  • traduzione dei bilanci a partire dal più recente

Se, come detto in lista, esistono delle priorità, basta elencarle. Certo è che tradurre a distanza di 2 anni qualcosa, senza avere idea di quale fosse l'idea originale dietro (vista la forte ambiguità della lingua italiana), non è banale. --Baruneju (talk) 16:55, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

cs.wikiquote: admins keep vandalism/trolling on Main Page for years[edit]

Hi, please revisit the discussion on cs.wikiquote: q:cs:Diskuse_k_Wikicitátům:Hlavní_strana#WMCZ. As proved in the discussion the added text is indeed vandalism/trolling, totally inapproprate for the Main Page of any project, would be legally considered libel/defamation and a civil law delict according to Czech law and many other (not only European) legal systems. The admins User:Danny B. and User:Milda didn′t intervene because both of them are former members of WMCZ who left the organization after its articles of association (bylaw) were changed (they had some personal issues with it) and this is their way to seek "revenge". Both of them should be punished for allowing libel/defamation on the Main Page of WM project for such a long time. --Auvajs (talk) 16:08, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Re: Wikimedia Blog/Drafts/Free knowledge author visits European parliament members[edit]

Letto.. peccato che non abbiamo ancora un blog di wmi per scriverne anche lì.

Thanks for your help formatting Wiki Loves Monuments evaluation report[edit]

Hi Nemo! Thank you for your help formatting Wiki Loves Monuments evaluation report. I really appreciate an experienced wikipedian reviewing format issues. I write back to you also to let you know I took your advice on semantic titles, but turned it around a bit to fit the design we developed for these reports. You can see the differences here.
Further, I wanted to note that having the references in a closed box (available for expansion) follows the style guideline we developed, for ease of navigation and reading. Each page of the report has a lot of information, and the references usually expand the pages a lot, so we chose to have them like that. I'm sure users will quickly understand the notes are there and be able to find them easily, even if the anchor doesn't work as such. I will, however, look into having the box expanded by default (if that's possible).
Thanks again for helping us out! Don't hesitate to get back to me on my talk page if you have follow up comments on how we can make the reports easy to navigate and read. Cheers, MCruz (WMF) (talk) 20:31, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Un commento su itwiki[edit]

Poso lasciarti un commento al volo? Fino a qualche mesi fa ero abbastanza "ottimista" su itwiki, diciamo che negli ultimi mesi avevo visto una stagnazione "dinamica" dei contributi dove sempre nuove aree emergevano, e alcuni mesi non erano peggio degli analoghi di 12 mesi fa.

Ma nelle ultime due-tre settimana non sono per nulla sereno. Conto almeno quattro utenze attive e competenti che hanno semsso di editare di botto nelle ultime settimane. Per esperienza: sono tante. Metteci pure me, che sono sempre più attratto dagli altri progetti... non che fossi un grande creatore di contributi ma qualcosa ho sempre fatto.

Negli ultimi mesi c'è stata una corsa a recuperare vecchie utenze per i flag avanzati che mi lascia perplesso. Le gente torna per dedicarsi alle scartoffie, più che per creare voci.

Il numero di utenze attive nel mese in corso vedo che sta scendendo.

Qualche utenza nuova brava s'è affacciata lo devo dire, ma è come se percepissi un improvviso "sbilanciamento". Mi sento "pessimista" in qualche modo, quel mio commento sul C.T. come "cavallo di troia" rientra in questa dinamica. Potrebbe essere l'effetto della percezione di un calo dopo alcuni mesi in cui eravamo andati anche meglio delle altre wiki come diferenza percentuale, eppure più ci ripenso più non mi levo di torno questa sensazione, spero di sbagliarmi.

Non vedo l'ora di guardare con attenzione i nuovi dati. Quello che mi preoccupa è che non immagino nessuna soluzione da implementare davvero per prendere in contropiede la situazione se questi ultimi fossero terribili (tipo un calo di due punti percentuali per qualche mese). Ogni carta relativa all'analisi utenze, p.e., sembra ancora poco spendibile. Se chiedessi di spammare un avviso alle utenze inattive e di buon livello (num edit, AV) suggerendo loro di tornare penso mi beccherei un pernacchione in sede di discussione. Forse è la volta che rispolvereremo davvero l'inserimento di voci via bot, ma sono scettico anche su quello, visto che lo rimandiamo da anni. Come rimago scettico sula possibilità di implementare i sistemi di monitoraggio dei nuovi utenti in modo sereno a breve.

Non so, se ci fosse un calo sosetnuto nei prossimi mesi, e Dio non voglia, tu come lo affronteresti? Che strategie si potrebbero giocare che abbiano chance reali di non essere criticate "per il gusto di farlo"? O troviamo il modo di fidelizzare i pochi nuovi che ci sono, o troviamo il modo di far tornare i vecchi che facevano delle voci vere.--Alexmar983 (talk) 00:18, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

quello che sento io è proprio la combinazione di tanti fattori e il grafico che mi hai linkato (carino) me lo sta confermando, nel mese di marzo, che non è ancora stato computato nella tabella generale delle satistiche si è passati da 3250 a 3000 e c'è una chiara tendenza verso il basso. Altra conferma che esattamente come mi aspettavo ci aspetta un calo non da poco, e Aprile è ancora tendenzialmente calante.
ciò che proponi rientra abbastanza in cosa mi aspettavo visto che il margine operativo su itiki si assottiglia, ma fare sondaggi non è reato. In particolare c'è un aspetto da valutare, nel questionario, cioè se l'utente si è sposato su altre piattaforme. Dal punto di vista wiki se chi abbandona itwiki passa a enwiki, o a itwikiquote probabilmente non cambia nulla sul lungo periodo, è solo un campanello d'allarme in più che su itwiki specificatamente qualcosa non va. --Alexmar983 (talk) 07:58, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
non ho dimenticato il picco stagionale, nei limiti del possibile sopratutto comparando che le altri lingue, tanto che a gennaio non ero felice per il segno più in sè ma perché era marcato sopra la media. E lo sentivo che c'era più lavoro che veniva fatto cercando le voci ampliate. Secondo me, a occhio, i dati sono leggermente peggiori di come dovrebbero essere. Quello che dici di wikidata è sensato, ne abbiamo discusso, ma penso che passato il 2014 quello che si doveva spostare si è spostato. Possibile che un miglioramento di leggi sul copyright possa determinare uno spostamento da e per commons, ma lo spostamento da una wiki locale a altre wiki locali è qualcosa di molto più sottile da percepire. Spostarsi p.e. su enwiki/frwiki (le più probabile) causerebbe un calo visibile su itwiki molto più che sulla wiki di arrivo.
Inizio a ragionarci, nel peggiore dei casi se itwiki non da l'assenso a fare un sondaggio lo si può sempre inviare sulla talk meta per i contributori non attivi globalmente da anni, ma con oltre 500-1000 edit, e con la mail attivata. Se anche solo lo 0.1% rispondesse sarebbero numeri significativi. In particolare al sondaggio chiederei se chi se ne è andato è/fosse al corrente di vari cambiamenti introdotti quali VE, wikidata, CT, etc... interessante sarebbe poi notare se a distanza di qualche mese chi ha risposto al sondaggio ha anche ripreso a editare.--Alexmar983 (talk) 08:23, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Support_collaboration_on_Pashto_Wikipedia[edit]

[2] That is not a duplicate. The old RfC was a user complaint, focused on "homophobia." The underlying situation was far more complex. The new RfC is placed as an RfC, but is really a process page focused on assisting the Pashto community at finding consensus. Please allow this trial of a new process some breathing space.

It will be facilitated toward seeking agreement among Pashto users, because with agreement, they can get things done. No agreement, no admin action, properly. This can actually work, I've seen it.

The old RfC should really be closed. Much to my surprise, there was action. The existing administrators and the 'crat were all removed. This is a very unusual situation. Now, that community needs special support, because it has a substantial active wiki to maintain, and there are language problems. Thanks for your attention. --Abd (talk) 19:45, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Signpost feature about article counts[edit]

As you already know, I've been asked to write up a "detailed summary" of the many issues surrounding Wikimedia article counts for use as a Signpost feature article. It looks like this is the week to have it published (i.e., this Wednesday). Unfortunately, as I work on it, I continue to discover more things I didn't know about article counting. So, I'm wondering whether you (as someone relatively knowledgeable on the subject) could do me a huge favor and read over what I have written so far, and let me know if you find any obvious mistakes or misunderstandings in there. Note that I am still working on it, so it's peppered with notes to myself here and there… - dcljr (talk) 07:58, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

I still have a couple of questions related to your actions/decisions, specifically (that I'd like clarification on before the Signpost feature is published):
  1. Why not recount Wikibooks each month? Does updateArticleCounts.php not implement the "comma" method correctly? (That's what it looks like to me. In fact, I have some doubt about the "all" method, as well.)
  2. (If so:) Would it be possible to recount all the Wikibooks except English and Portuguese with the updateArticleCount.php script, and recount only those two languages in a way that respects the "comma" method?
I am pressing this Wikibooks issue mainly because, if the analysis I did back in 2012 is any indication, the current Wikibooks counts are likely to be just as wrong as those in the rest of the sister projects were. - dcljr (talk) 22:52, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
I still don't know for sure if updateArticleCounts.php correctly implements the "comma" method or not. Can you verify which it is? - dcljr (talk) 21:40, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what it looks like to me, but then I'm not at all familiar with the MediaWiki source code, so I wanted someone else to concur. Thanks. - dcljr (talk) 21:53, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Request to use different template[edit]

Hi,

Please refer to your contributions (using a bot) in file name space on mr-wikipedia to place delete template. The given meaning of the present w:mr:Template:Delete template is not necessarily best one for the given purpose and we have deviced a new template w:mr:Template:Delete-image which is more suitable for the given purpose and it would be better idea to replace {{Delete}} with {{Delete-image}} on the said files.

Before deleting some of those files we want to conduct a specific awareness campaign among community members through email lists and social media so they realise the mistake and mistakes are not repeated. Replacing replace {{Delete}} with {{Delete-image}} is likely to help in above objective hence this request.

Bot support request[edit]

Hi,

We are requesting a bot support to remove two templates namely "{{Own Work}} {{Cc}}" from Marathi wikipedia's file name space mistakenly (i.e. without respective user/uploader parmissions) placed by one local bot w:mr:User:चीत्रकाम्या vide these contributions dated 18th February 2013


  • kindly help us in getting templates "{{Own Work}} {{Cc}}" removed as requested above with the help of a suitable bot.



This is part of the steps needed to ask users to do and update licensing of their own files themselves.

Thanks and warm regards

I am not getting user right management option in case of user:AnankeBot probably since user:AnankeBot is not registered on mr-wikipedia as user. may be user:AnankeBot needs to make one visit to mr wikipedia so that user right management option would become functional and a bot flag can be given.

Thanks for prompt support. rgds Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 06:56, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

I have given the bot flag now

Thanks and regards

Hi, I manually did some removal work, but still good amount of work is remaining, waiting for the bot support. Thanks and Rgds.

How to go about[edit]

Hi,

Uptil now we have not received any feed back to our request at Talk:Wikilegal#Requests for comment/Applicability of Creative Commons in India; As such undersigned wanted to schedule a social media campaign (June 2015 onwards) among marathi language wikipedians making an apeal to get licences updated for the images they have uploaded uptil now. Undersigned prefers to have some sort of clarity on the above issue, before starting any such campaign.

Please do suggest.

Thanks and Warm regards

Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 11:01, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, it seems you are busy in some other activities. I would prefer to keep you updated about this subject in hand, per my communication with Wikilegal team they are still researching the subject and it is likely take its own time. My view is let discussion on 'Applicability of Creative Commons in India' continue in future too. It would be always safe to have additional documentation Form I & Affidavit (Customised for reliqushment of copyright as per 'free cultural work' definition) than regret in future. At Marathi wikipedia we can attach this document to Template:Self while making copyright reliquishment declaration, and we can go ahead with our campaign of apeal to update licences.

Meaning of 'scappato di casa'[edit]

I read an autotranslation of https://it.wikiquote.org/wiki/Utente:Nemo_bis/Elezioni_WMF/2015 and see 'scappato di casa' (run away from home) in most of the entries. Could you explain what this means? Perhaps your analysis is these people are hoping to run away from problems on their home wikis by running for the foundation board? I guess that the phrase has some obvious meaning in Italian that I am missing. Feel free to answer here or there if you wish to answer at all. I am not sure whether it is considered offensive to ask a question in English on an it.wikiquote talk page. Thanks! Mike Linksvayer (talk) 17:19, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Mike Linksvayer, it's a secret I may reveal after the elections. ;-) That's really just a personal scratchpad, I've not even checked whether the phrase is used in "my" sense outside my city... or family. --Nemo 19:53, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Nemo, I linked to this from my blog (as you may have seen), which is why Mike saw it. But now I wonder if you would prefer less publicity. I would be happy to remove it from the blog post and my user page if you like, just let me know. -Pete F (talk) 20:43, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Clearly that would be like closing the stable after all the cattle has run away... --Nemo 07:29, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
  • hi Nemo, I fully respect your right to any opinion you may have on me, however it would be nice if you also tried to keep to at least basic accuracy in terms of facts :) it would seem that you're implying my limited experience on boards, while I am one of the most experienced of the candidates. Not that it matters now; it is mainly an acknowledgement of inaccuracy surprising for a veteran Wikimedian. Cheers Pundit (talk) 07:14, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
    I'm not going to defend the content of notes having only me as expected audience, nor to comment on false interpretations provided by machine translation. --Nemo 07:29, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
    I'd love to understand what you wrote better (even if it is just between the two of us), surely the machine translation often loses quite a lot :) Pundit (talk) 09:32, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Latin script articles in the Konkani Wikipedia[edit]

Hi Nemo, I feel that the Konkani Wikipedia, which has been approved by LangCom, should inclue the Latin script articles as well. The only reason I've seen put forward to exclude the Latin script articles is that Devanagari is the official script. I've left a comment to this effect at the request discussion, please could you also share your thoughts about this there? Regards. The Discoverer (talk) 05:10, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. How do I go about requesting the New wiki importers to do this? Would it be possible for you to ask them? Regards, The Discoverer (talk) 09:05, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
According to the Incubator:Site creation log, it's MF-Warburg who's importing, and I've written a message on his talk page. Thanks, The Discoverer (talk) 12:57, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Manuale Mix'n'Match[edit]

Il manuale in inglese è stato fatto da un altro utente che ha preso spunto dal mio. Il punto è che il mio è un po' più esteso di quell'altro, oltre a essere venuto fuori per primo - da cui la richiesta di traduzione.

Ora, volendo, spero di trovare dieci minuti per allargare/sistemare il manuale inglese e poi, a cascata, quello italiano. Però, ecco, trovo sia il caso di continuare a tenerlo segnato per la traduzione. --Sannita - not just another it.wiki sysop 13:09, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Nearby for all...[edit]

Hi Nemo bis, i just came across this edit where you already mentioned a problem that i not long ago again described in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T89703. Beside your posting, do you see any way to motivate the Wikipedias to add the missing coordinates functionality. Or do you think we just sit and wait until Wikidata takes over the role for storing all these data and the Wikipedia then just export these data. --Aschroet (talk) 12:55, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
