Hmmm, that's rather weird, no clue how the vote template ended up there then, see [1]. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Snowolf How can I help? 05:53, 28 February 2012 (UTC)Reply

Yes, it is definitely weird, and after a little research I determined this is what caused it. I've fixed this as I did not vote for myself and, for some reason, Wagino 20100516 (talk · contribs) "corrected" it into a vote. He fixed it here, and PeterSymonds "recorrected" it here and then moved it here. I think it's all fixed now (see the history). ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 06:09, 28 February 2012 (UTC)Reply


I am deeply grateful that someone else understands what I have been trying to say - I've obviously not made myself very clear :(. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 17:24, 11 January 2013 (UTC)Reply

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum(_AT_) Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation

No renaming between November 20 and November 27[edit]


You’re getting this because you’re a steward or global renamer. The Community Tech team are working on cross-wiki watchlists. We need to add a couple of fields to the localuser table in centralauth database. In order to be able to do this, we’d need to run a script that will get in the way of renaming users. Our apologies – we realize this is getting in the way of your work.

We ask that you do not rename anyone between 00:00 November 20 (UTC) and 00:00 November 27 (UTC).

(UTC means that if you live in the Americas, it will be on the evening or afternoon of November 19 when the script starts running, and if you live in Oceania or eastern Asia, it can be closer midday on November 27 before we can be sure the script is no longer running.)

Phabricator task.

If there are any problems related to this, or you have any questions, please write me on my talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:42, 17 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

I want to be renamed[edit]

I heard that you are a global renamer. I would like to be renamed to miles527. If someone has already taken that username, you can change me to miles.527 or miles_527. Either is fine with me. Thanks.

JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)[edit]

Hi - according to our records you received a free account for JSTOR through The Wikipedia Library. Because we’ve used up all of our allocated accounts, and it’s been some time since they were distributed, we want to redistribute any accounts that aren’t being used to users on our waitlist.

If you’re still using, or plan to use, your JSTOR access, no problem! Simply head over to the Library Card platform, log in, and request a renewal of your account. You should be able to do this from your user page, or the JSTOR signup page. If you can’t find the renewal button, or have any other issues or questions about this, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. We’ll begin redistributing inactive accounts in September; if you request renewal after then we will only be able to reactivate your account if we have spots remaining. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:32, 20 August 2018 (UTC)Reply

On renaming of User:成田山[edit]

Hi Nihonjoe, thank you for your work as a global renamer. There's something I'm concerned with. You've renamed User:成田山 to User:パトロールクリーン, but this is a sockpuppet of User:墜落インバーター, and I think the renaming involves "the user seeking the rename to conceal or obfuscate bad conduct". I'd appreciate it if you could go over this case when you have time. --Dragoniez (talk) 13:40, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Dragoniez: Weird. That block wasn't showing when I moved them (even though it shows as having been put in place on the 14th, and they were renamed on the 23rd). Perhaps it was a glitch that failed to note the block when I looked on CentralAuth? Whatever happened, I've moved them back. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 17:25, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply
Oh, that sure is weird. Maybe there was some technical or connection issue? Anyway, I appreciate your quick action. --Dragoniez (talk) 17:41, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply

Your feedback is requested[edit]

Hello Nihonjoe, We are conducting a poll of global renamers and stewards regarding some future toolings related to some rename requests. Your feedback is requested at the poll on VRT WIKI. Best regards, — xaosflux Talk 00:18, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply
