You mail[edit]

Hi, I recieved your mail, thanks a lot. I sent you a reply, but maybe it didn't come through for some reason. First of all, thanks a lot for taking care of our expenses, we appreciate it very much. 500 EUR will be enough for one person to travel from IL to Frankfurt, so I have to ask the WMF whether they would like to find extra financial resources, so we could send a second delegate, or whether they would settle for only one delegate from WM-IL. In any case, we except your kind offer with many thanks. Dror_K 20:09, 24 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Image:Kartografio de la Vikipediistoj 061102 .png[edit]

I put a copyright tag for the picture. But what do you mean ? I worked for Meta, from Wikipedia material, made a screen capture (you can see where it comes from) and you are asking for copyright status !!! Otherwise the picture will be deleted !!!! Working for Wikimedia is defaultly under GFDL, isn't it ? Why asking for every chart, every screen capture a copyright status ? Arno Lagrange  10:34, 27 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Site on WM software[edit]

Dear Wiki moderators, we have website on Windows Mobile software - Handster2.com, which has pretty high number of visitors in Windows Mobile area. Our colleague added links to "External Links" section of PDA-related articles, like: iPaq http://ipaq.handster2.com, Motorola_Q Software http://motorola-q.handster2.com. The links were relevant, each pointing to selection of programs for specified device only. Now our website is in your blacklist. Also another one popular website - PocketPCAddict2.com got into your blacklist. This website is probably number 2 Windows Mobile community.

At the same time, if you have a look at "External Links" sections on Motorola_Q, Windows_mobile, Ipaq, Dell_Axim - most of the links now, except Microsoft/HP/Dell, will be as much relevant (or even less relevant), as our Handster2.com or PocketPcAddict2.com. In the "External links" sections you will find websites that sell goods or ran Google adsense/other advertisment.

We would kindly ask you to remove Handster2.com from blacklist section. The links we added had the same or even better quality for readers as links you have now in "External links" section. From my side we can also assure you to take care that our colleagues will never add anything in "External links" section themself. Sincerely yours, Victor 5 October 2007

no one of your cited links are listened on meta blacklist, I'm sorry--Nick1915 - all you want 18:39, 5 October 2007 (UTC)Reply
Hi Nick1915, that is what I'm writing to you about - why were we added to blacklist? We really added our links to 3-4 relevant places. But why you added us to blacklist and not all other websites, that are now in "External links"? Most of other websites in Motorola_Q, Windows_mobile, Ipaq, Dell_Axim "External links" sections are less relevant and less popular! The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) 07:34, 8 Oct 2007 (UTC)
What Nick has said is that you are not blacklisted here at Meta. If you were you would be unable to make the links that you have above. All wikis have their own blacklists so if you were trying to create links on English Wikipedia then you would need to ask why you were blacklisted there (w:MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist) if that is the case - thanks --Herby talk thyme 08:20, 8 October 2007 (UTC)Reply
Hi Nick, hi Herby - when I go to http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Spam_blacklist and view history, I can see that handster was added to blacklist by Nick in this change:
(cur) (last) 11:39, 4 October 2007 Nick1915 (Talk | contribs) (100,024 bytes) (+2) (undo)
(cur) (last) 07:11, 4 October 2007 Herbythyme (Talk | contribs) (99,982 bytes) (+some) (undo)
with whom should I talk about it then? Thanks, Victor
P.S. Yes, I was not able to make links - to write text above I added "2" at the end of domain. Real domain is just "handster"
Ok - then you really should post your request at the bottom of the section here - it may well be that Nick and/or I will answer you but that way it will not get missed, regards --Herby talk thyme 08:51, 8 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

Spam logging?[edit]

Hi Nick - no idea if you know the answer to this but have you noticed the "Logging" doesn't pick up the section correctly at times? For example - I always copy and paste anyway but this one (& some of the others) don't take you to the correct section of the talk page. Nothing urgent - cheers --Herby talk thyme 14:36, 22 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

Grrr - that simple & I never thought of it. Thanks Nick, I'll fix up my blunders later, still got another to log I think, cheers --Herby talk thyme 15:28, 22 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

Yeah but... the action on en wq was to VfD the Britney Spears page because it was "hers" (immediately after two abusive accounts from open proxies)! By the way - you should be en-3! Cheers --Herby talk thyme 19:51, 31 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

Traduzione per vec[edit]

Ciao, ci sarebbe da creare il messaggio MediaWiki:Centralnotice-meter/vec, come previsto in questa pagina, e come sai sul namespace MediaWiki possono lavorare solo i sysop. Su vec.wiki appare la scritta in italiano "9889 persone hanno donato" e già qualcuno si è lamentato (ma notare che finché la scritta era in inglese nessuno ha fiatato). ;-) Semolo75 03:51, 1 November 2007 (UTC)Reply


Hi Nick. "Donar ahora" is not a completely right sentence in Spanish. It should be "Dona ahora". Could you ammend it? Thanks. Lin linao 18:50, 4 November 2007 (UTC)Reply

Re:NN sitenotice[edit]

Sorry, I don't quite understand how this system works. Right now nn:wikipedia has a hybrid sitenotice in Nynorsk and English, which is quite annoying to a wiki-pedant like myself! (The "[number] have donated" should be "[number] har donert", if you have the ability to change things). --Ranveig 19:31, 6 November 2007 (UTC)Reply

Okay, here's the translation:

   * $1 har donert
   * » Doner no!

cdo sitenotice[edit]

Hi Nick1915, I was wondering if it is possible to add the font tag "<font face="Charis SIL, Lucida Sans Unicode"></font>" to the cdo sitenotice templates, because only in "Charis SIL" or "Lucida Sans Unicode" can all characters be displayed normally. See this template for example, without proper fonts some characters could only be displayed as a box (especially in IE). If the default font cannot be altered, I would then consider changing the text to Chinese characters. --GnuDoyng 17:31, 8 November 2007 (UTC)Reply

Meta:Requests for adminship/Adambro 2[edit]

Hi Nick. I must ask that you take the time to reconsider your position on my request for adminship. Whilst I appreciate your view that you are not convinced about my "idea of meta contenents/interpretation of policies", I don't accept this to be the case. I feel that I'm more than familiar with the relevant policies and my participation in deletion discussions have been with the aim of ensuring compliance with these.

My understanding policy requires little interpretation, I think both relevant policies are clear. The project scope doesn't cover historical interest as far as I'm aware and the inclusion policy requires that only freely licensed material is used. I would urge you to respect that my efforts are rooted in policy over your personal opinion that "meta should not be as strict as Commons". As I've said, the inclusion policy is pretty clear about free material and so I do not consider it appropriate to oppose a request for adminship on the grounds that the user is attempting to comply with said policies. If the policy doesn't reflect the feeling amongst the community about what should be included then campaign for a change in policy rather than allowing my RfA to be impacted by your opinion that policy is wrong.

Thanks for your time and I'd be happy to discuss this further with you if you have any points you'd like to raise. Adambro 23:19, 21 January 2008 (UTC)Reply

Administrator on sc:wiki[edit]

Ho letto la discussione. Cerca di far capire che siamo in assenza pratica di un amministratore. Quello che c'è è come s enon ci fosse. Come dicevo, non bramo di fare l'amministratore, è che se non lo faccio io (o un altro), non lo fa nessuno. Devo procedere ad una votazione, cercando di coinvolgere i pochi utenti? --Elcaracol 11:00, 17 October 2008 (UTC)Reply

Changed usage for {{closed}}[edit]

Hello Nick1915. At some point you used {{closed}} with the "text" parameter (ie, {{closed|text=Rogue deletion omg. ~~~~}}). This will no longer work correctly in the future, because the "text" parameter will contain the entire discussion (to wrap it in a coloured box). Instead, please use {{closed|Summary}} or {{closed|1=Summary}} (for complex summaries). Thanks. —{admin} Pathoschild 00:15:29, 05 February 2008 (UTC)

en.wikibooks De-Sysopping[edit]

Thanks. -withinfocus 15:43, 7 February 2008 (UTC)Reply


Dear Nick1915, I am Sarvaturi from the Sicilian wikipedia and Sicilian wiktionary. I thank you for the message you wrote me in the Sicilian wikipedia and I say another time that I am very opposed to the closure of the Corsican wiktionary. As I wrote to Spacebirdy I want to be an administrator on Co.wiktionary if it is possible, and even if it is a "temporary sysop status". I want to develop this little but useful Corsican project! As you know I am not a Corsican but I understand easily and write easily their language (I am used to read the Corsican wikipedia because their language is very similar to Italian language and to Sicilian language). I am French but I am also Italian and it is for this reason that I want to help the Corsican language (an Italic language!). For many years Corsica was under "Italic states" rules and it kept being under Italic linguistic influences for many years, so It is very important to help the Corsican language and all the Italic languages (Lombard, Neapolitan, Venetan, Sicilian, Piedmontese, Ligurian, Emilian-Romagnol, ecc.)! Another thing, I give you my congratulations for the beautiful Venetan wikipedia (Vec.wikipedia) where you are a bureaucrat and an administrator. (I am sorry that I write you in English but it is because it seems to be the "work language" on this Meta wiki site). --Sarvaturi 12:15, 8 February 2008 (UTC)Reply

Nevermind. Sigh. It looks like meta is the same way, I guess. My essays are "rambling personal essays on Wikipedia policy that seem irrelevant to Meta." [1] [2] [3] [4]

Based on the overall discussions I see regarding other material on meta, it looks like every contribution I've made to meta so far will be deleted. How horrible. How can people be like this? Zenwhat 12:26, 12 February 2008 (UTC)Reply

Khmer Wikipedia Sysops[edit]

Hello. My privilege as sysop in Khmer Wikipedia just expired yesterday. Could you prolong my privilege as sysop there? I have been contributing a lot for Khmer wikipedia. You can see my contribution list and you can go to see the vote page for administrator [7] to make sure.

Thank you. --គីមស៊្រុន 04:07, 24 May 2008 (UTC)Reply

Grazie per la risposta, Nick. Però io ho già unificato il login (almeno per le mie utenze in it.wiki, it.wikinews e commons) e, se non ho letto male in w:en:Wikipedia:Changing_username, mi pare di capire che, una volta fatto ciò, non si può modificare l'username localmente e quindi va prima cancellato l'account globale per poter riassegnare le varie utenze omonime (se solo non fosse per quel bug da risolvere...). E' così oppure posso richiedere tranquillamente la riassegnazione dell'username su en.wiki, fr.wiki e così via? In ogni caso, come mi devo muovere? --Mess 13:21, 1 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Va bene, Nick. Solo un'altra cosa: la cancellazione dell'account globale ha degli effetti collaterali oppure no? Mi spiego meglio: non è che mi resetta password, edit e via dicendo? Sicuro che è un operazione perfettamente reversibile rispetto al merging delle utenze? --Mess 21:36, 1 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

SUL - Zirnis[edit]

I'm sorry, but I have a problem with my SUL account. As you wrote today at my discussion page, it was deleted according to my request after fixing bug 14330. I wanted to create a new unified login including newly usurped account in EnWiki, but when I type my password, it’s said that the password is incorrect (but it does work in all accounts and also automatically created ones). So I have my old SUL deleted and cannot create a new one. Maybe I don’t understand something, but please explain what is wrong. Best regards, Zirnis 16:36, 6 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Please reconsider[edit]


I believe you made a big mistake in rejecting Michael Everson's admin application on Burmese Wikipedia. The votes against him were, for the most part, not from actual users. This Wikipedia version badly needs assistance with font problems, and Michael can do that. He is quite a reasonable and co-operative person, and whatever concerns there are about font issues (including some bizarre allegations that he has a commercial motive here) are things that he will of course be able to resolve. Not giving him admin access, when the majority of legitimate voters approved it... strongly... is an error.

Please go back and review the history of the "no" voters, and you will see what I mean.

Note: I had a three-month adminship and it expired. This project is going to take quite some time, and the process of getting permissions is pretty endless. I would rather be doing the work than coming here over and over again. Is that a good use of everybody's time? This is most frustrating. I feel like I'm on trial here and all I want to do is help sort out the Burmese wiki. Sheesh. Evertype 14:30, 14 July 2008 (UTC)Reply
as spacebirdy said, the permanent adminship was declined for 2 reasons: the local community is too small for a permanent sysopship and the votation is completely invalid: if we check it, noone of the voters has the requirements (neither you Jimbo :))--Nick1915 - all you want 20:45, 14 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

MyMyanmar and I applied for Adminship on the same day, and for the same reasons: We wanted to work together to sort out the technical problems with the wiki.

Views on account locking?[edit]

Appreciated here if you have a minute. I do realise that there is some controversy with this but the JackPotte case which is referred to above that is ample evidence of the abuse that can occur. Cheers --Herby talk thyme 16:08, 10 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Huh? Biology not wanted! I get it.[edit]

The policy does not say anywhere that it is against policy to make comments on an image when someone has asked for it to be corrected. Hell, I don't care. It's a bad image, and it should not be anywhere on Wikipedia, and I was willing to review it, as asked on its page, in order to correct it. That isn't acceptable, keep the crappy image. Wikipedia and all its varieties are just a big ole in-club, and it's clear it's meant to stay that way. Here: here's an image, say what's wrong with it, but if you do, you're doing a bad bad and will be scolded, sent off, and told off.

Biology and a well-written encyclopedia with accurate science are just too far down the list of getting to hang out with the clique and boss people around by throwing rules at them. Bye bye. --Blechnic 06:02, 14 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Would you post the stupid comment I made on my talk page so I can post it in the right place, instead of spitting inapplicable rules at me and deleting it? Someone bothered to explain to me that even though the image invited comment, and this is a Wikimedia project, I should have posted it on Commons.

Reckless Vandalism[edit]

Hi Nick,

I notice that you are one of the only 'crats' who take an active interest in maintaining the integrity of wiki projects.

In recent days I have had to revert thousands of edits from the following range of IP addresses for negative contributions including vandalism on the pages of many eastern european countries, middle eastern countries, countless complex mathematic formulas and proofs insertion of pornography into the pages of articles including articles for children;s novels in addition to a attempt to promote vilification in the wikipeda pages for various ethnic groups such as Australian Aboriginals, Canadian Inuits and Mexican people.

This morning alone I must have reverted at least 100 or so examples of vandalism

The edits may be the beginning of a DDOS or a mass attempt to disrupt the workings of wikipedia and I request a temporary block be placed upon the following IP ranges:










If you could help it would be appreciated greatly

Vandals damaged my global account[edit]

Good day, Nick! Write to Us User:Канопус Киля

I have a problem. Decided to you for advice. In a number of Russian Wikipedia vandals were reset your password. These anonimy wrote "Get a new password." But the problem is not the point - I have my main account has finally broken. She was dropped from memory, the password three letters but I have not typed, nothing worked. I send myself a password 10 times, but it did not work. My Global Account Канопус Киля died.

Brought a sokpappet, behold, the tool please, what to do. In principle, I have nothing to lose, but that is why this happened? :(

Perhaps, this involved vandals. But I can not fail to note that for some reason, even a simple password, which I try to enter after entering a temporary, consisting of one letter is ignored.

Tell me please, what should I do? My Account died. This - the tragedy, as I did in the Wikipedia about 11 thousand edits. North Star 13:04, 13 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Incorrect removal of permissions[edit]

Please note that other than my edit there was zero discussion of this by the community on that project, let alone a consensus. Also note that Wikibooks does have a local permissions procedure, and five active bureaucrats. Please undo your mistake. Thank you. Uncle G 13:12, 12 November 2008 (UTC)Reply

  • Worth pointing out that it is (& has been for some time) Wikibooks policy to remove inactive admins. Equally the presence or otherwise of local 'crats still does not allow them to remove rights, they can only grant them. Nick was therefore following valid local policy & so this should be taken up with en wb directly rather than here on Meta. --Herby talk thyme 13:21, 12 November 2008 (UTC)Reply
    • I draw your attention to the top of Steward requests/Permissions, which explicitly states that the taking of adminstrator permissions is (its own emphasis) for all Wikimedia wikis which do not have a local permissions procedure. Given that the English Wikibooks has a local permissions procedure, which engendered zero discussion, let alone a consensus (which is required by the very policy you are referring to), this was a mistake, and I am asking, as is both courteous and normal procedure on wikis, for the person who actually made the mistake to undo it xyrself, as a first recourse. Uncle G 13:45, 12 November 2008 (UTC)Reply
    • @Uncle G: I've just followed the request and the local policy. If you have any problem, please ask to a local 'crat, arbcom, community, RfC (whatever you want) for a potential re-flag, it's out of my area of responsibility: the request is already closed (here on meta) and soon will be archived--Nick1915 - all you want 16:00, 12 November 2008 (UTC)Reply
      • You didn't follow the local policy, though. Local policy (which you can read here) requires a community discussion and a consensus. A discussion where I am the only participant is not a community consensus by any stretch of the imagination. Once again, I point to the diff. Have you not been checking the local policies and reading the discussions, to check that the requests that have been made of you are actually valid? My contribution to the discussion, which went unchallenged, was right there on the page version provided by Mike.lifeguard in the request.

        You also in the same sweep removed permissions from User:Celestianpower incorrectly, I notice. You there removed permissions from a supposely "inactive" editor who last edited Wikibooks a mere 13 days ago.

        You have made mistakes. I ask again: please undo them. Uncle G 16:44, 12 November 2008 (UTC)Reply

I read "Sysops who are especially inactive, specifically for at least one year or longer, can be removed without a consensus discussion"... it's your case. 1 month with no opposition for the deflag is called consensus (celestianpower' case), so no, I can't undo them.

Turkmen wiktionary closure proposal[edit]

Hello, Nick1915! Will you please consider this issue. Many things has changed since you proposed the closure of Turkmen wiktionary. Since that we have been keeping a notice on closure at the main page. Now it is really annoying to bear such a burden. Personnally I ask you to help to finalize the proposal.

Hello Nick, please can You revise that block, because of [9].

I don't understand why he was blocked with "can't edit own talk" too, while he doesn't seem to have abused this. I don't understand the block as a whole but You must have had Your reasons, however the user just continued editing here as anon Special:Contributions/, and maybe other IPs, so please revise the block, I don't see much damage of that user.

Problems trying to finish unification of my account.[edit]

Hello Nick. I left the following message on your English Wiktionary talk page - as I am having trouble on the Italian Wiktionary - the User:SemperBlotto there is not me and I would like it to be renamed. SemperBlotto 18:58, 6 August 2009 (UTC)Reply

Sono Utente:SemperBlotto nel inglese Wiktionary. C'è un utente di questo nome sul wiki italiano - no è di me. Ci sono contributi presumibilmente da me sul wiki italiano - ma sone spurie. Si veda, ad esempio, it:wikt:privatizzare. Questo tipo di articolo è stato copiato dalla wiki inglese, insieme con la sua cronologia. Vorrei che l'utente rinominato - per completare l'unificazione il mio account.

Amministratore Wiki in Tarantino[edit]

Ciao Nick1915, si è svolta una votazione sulla Wikipedia tarantina per la nomina di un nuovo amministratore, come puoi vedere qui. Potresti gentilmente abilitare il flag su tale utente? Grazie --Joetaras 12:22, 6 February 2010 (UTC)Reply

Ciao, grazie per la risposta. Cosa sono gli accessi temporanei? Purtroppo su una piccola Wiki come la nostra è difficile reperire 7/8 voti. L'unica cosa che posso dirti è che Reder è un utente abbastanza attivo e farebbe comodo averlo come amministratore, in quanto gli altri 3 amministratori nominati, di fatto non sono operativi. In questo modo non potremmo più avere altri amministratori e purtroppo insieme al numero di edit positivi, nell'ultimo periodo aumentano i vandalismi e non sempre riesco a starci dietro per tempo. Buona giornata. Comunque seguirò il tuo consiglio, chiedendo parere anche agli altri steward. --Joetaras 13:22, 7 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
Ciao di nuovo, ok va bene l'accesso temporaneo. Grazie ancora per le risposte. --Joetaras 18:20, 7 February 2010 (UTC)Reply

Hi, Nick.
Can you unarchive this [10]?
Or can you reinsert my message there? It was my defense, when I was attacked [11]. The attacker has removed my defense [12]. It would be OK to complete the discussion. Otherwise, all interested parties cannot see what was going on. Thank You in advance, Kubura 00:16, 15 February 2010 (UTC)Reply

I'm so sorry, but the request is closed and archived, Dalibor Bosits is global rollbacker, and any further considerations would be off topic there. If you want, you can keep discussing in your own talk pages--Nick1915 - all you want 00:28, 15 February 2010 (UTC)Reply

Well, case closed. You've declined my appeal, I respect that.
(Although I don't know why it'd be the problem to restore the section).
Please, take a better look next time when you archive the discussions.
Please, don't allow anyone to freewillingly act as "censor" [13] [14]. These weren't graffiti.
I don't like someone's attack on me [15], but I respect the attacker's right to his opinion. Unlike the user that attacked me, played as censor [16][17] and gave me no right to defend myself.
So please, be more careful next time.

An urgent request[edit]

Dear Nick, How are you? We are in a bit of a time crunch to get the Vèneto translations in before the Fundraiser launch on Monday. We are doing a 100% test that starts on Friday and continues throughout the weekend till the launch, and we really don't want to have English pages on the Vèneto projects. Could you help translate and recruit translators to get all the fundraising materials completed? Here is the translation hub with the Jimmy Appeal, FAQ, Core Messages, and Benefactor pages that need to be completed Translations Thanks so much, let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

Notification of intent[edit]

As I said here, you have overstepped the authority of a Steward by making pretend claims about policy. Stewards don't have the right to make up any statement about policy. They do only two things: 1. See if there is consensus and 2. Close based on a filing with proof of consensus. Your acting is so egregiously wrong that you even used the wrong page, instead Abd is a probationary custodian. You substituted rules for full Custodians who, according to that policy, must be elected by the Community which Abd clearly was not. It is now 5 days with no new movement with the only activity being 2 more opposes out of a community with only 12 active users in the Wikiversity name space.

You also acted in direct contradiction of multiple Stewards, which constitutes as major Wheel Warring and his highly inappropriate. If you seek confirmation, I assure you that such outrageous behavior will not go unnotice and, like Lar, you will find a quick removal. You owe the Stewards, Wikiversity, and Meta an apology for behavior that is completely unbecoming and unjustifiable. You do not have any right to act in this matter and defy community consensus. Ottava Rima (talk) 14:32, 30 January 2011 (UTC)Reply

I don't know if I've to consider this message as threat or just a provocation. I've already answered to you in the request page.--Nick1915 - all you want 15:33, 30 January 2011 (UTC)Reply
Stewards have confirmation so they don't make up claims about policy to refuse to act on community consensus. You still refuse to apologize for claiming a probationary custodian who was not voted gets policy rights of a voted on custodian even though they have two clearly separate pages. Ottava Rima (talk) 15:37, 30 January 2011 (UTC)Reply
See Requests for comment/User:Ottava Rima. This user has been engaged in massive disruption, with even massive attention, but nobody does the obvious. See also Meta:Requests_for_help_from_a_sysop_or_bureaucrat#Requests_for_comment.2FUser:Ottava_Rima. I'm not recommending that you act personally, unless nobody else will. In one recent case, he alludes to it, Ottava carried out his threats with canvassed support, he is active on IRC and sometimes sucks in naive users, but his mojo now seems to have broken and his supporters are backing away. Thanks for your actions, which have been, in fact, routine and proper. --Abd 15:48, 9 February 2011 (UTC)Reply

Steward election[edit]

Hi Nick1915,

I'm sorry that I gave you the wrong impression with my self-vote. I assuredly did not mean it in any dishonest manner. Please look at it from my point of view -- there is no rule on monolingual stewards either, yet people are opposing me for it. Why shouldn't I be able to similarly vote for myself? That's only fair, or as close to fair is possible since I can only get one vote, versus many who believe stewards should be required to be multilingual. Anyway, I hope you'll reconsider supporting me again, and I'm more than happy to clarify any unclear points or answer any questions. SWATJester Son of the Defender 16:43, 18 February 2011 (UTC)Reply

I've understood your POV, but I'm still perplexed about the "subterfuge" of the self-vote for offsetting any opposition (fair or unfair). I'll move my comment from "NO" to "neutral" section, because I don't wanna damage your voting, holding anyway my opinion. --Nick1915 - all you want 17:38, 18 February 2011 (UTC)Reply
I appreciate it. I assure you, there is no subterfuge involved, I simply think that I am a capable candidate for the job, and ought to be able to express myself the same way every other voter should (barring any tules to the contrary). In any event, I greatly appreciate it, and if you have any other questions about my candidacy, please let me know as soon as possible. Steward elections close out tomorrow, just in case you hadn't finished with anyone. SWATJester Son of the Defender 08:27, 26 February 2011 (UTC)Reply

Translator, We need you![edit]

Dear Nick1915,

You have helped us in previous years with translations and for that we are most grateful. Now we turn towards the 2011/12 fundraiser. It may seem forever away, but work has already begun getting everything ready to go. This year we want to have landing pages covering as many countries in as many languages as possible.

Right now, we want to figure out who is interested in translating for the fundraiser. This year we're hoping to have more of a solidified "core" group of translators that we can count on to have work done by a few key dates, but we'd also welcome help from people who are willing to just help out when they can.

If you would be interested please take a look at this little sign-up survey and fill it out http://survey.wikimedia.org/index.php?sid=13638&newtest=Y&lang=en. With that we can start building a list of people and filling any gaps in the languages we serve.

Many Thanks

Fundraising translation feedback[edit]

Hey Nick1915, I have a bit of a request to ask from you. We pulled down our banners nearly a fortnight ago for what was a highly successful international fundraiser and brought the curtain down on last years fundraiser. This week however we will be changing payment processors and during the testing of the new system it would be useful to use the time productively on on testing banner text.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to help us improve our italian text using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

We are going to run the test on tuesday so if you dont see this message till 24 hours after it was sent you can ignore me :) Many Thanks though.
