Welcome to Philosopher's talk page.
Thanks for experimenting with the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki. Your test worked, and has now been reverted or removed. Please use Meta:Sandbox for any other tests you want to do, since testing in articles will be reverted quickly. Please see the introduction page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our project and also read about Meta's Inclusion policy on what is and isn't allowed on Meta-Wiki. Thanks.
Stop these page moves, thanks.

Global bans policy discussion
At Requests for comment/Global bans, where you have commented in support of Option 2, a third option has recently been implemented. The first two options did not prove a way for respondents to indicate that they oppose global bans entirely, i.e., that it is not possible to write a meaningful global bans policy that would attract their support. Option 3 is intended to provide that opportunity, and to aid in distinguishing between people who oppose the proposed policy because it requires improvements and those who oppose the proposed policy because no policy permitting global bans should be adopted.
Because the third section was added late by a respondent, it is possible that some people who responded early in the RFC have commented at option 2, but would really prefer to support option 3, or support both. If so, you may voluntarily choose to move your original comment or to or strikethrough your original comment and add new comments. This is a courtesy notice of the change, and there is no requirement that you take any action. WhatamIdoing (talk) 15:41, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
- I am perfectly fine with my comment being left where it is - I haven't yet decided whether a global ban is a good idea in itself, and don't think that that question needs to be answered in the current RfC at any rate. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 18:31, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Wikimedia Travel Guide: Naming poll open
You are receiving this message because you voiced your opinion at the Request for Comment on the Wikimedia Travel Guide.

Please see Travel Guide/Naming Process for full details on voting eligibility and how the final name will be selected. Voting will last for 14 days, and will terminate on 16 October at 06:59:59 UTC.
- That must be a new change? When I joined OTRS not that long ago, the page was filled with endorsements. With regards to 99of9, in particular, I'd hope that a comment from an en.wiki admin would be useful since he has no "advanced permissions" on en.wiki - if only to show that he is familiar with how things work there. But then I've often wondered by additions to OTRS aren't done by the admins or 'crats on the local projects themselves (who would be familiar with the standards of the projects), so ... – Philosopher Let us reason together. 15:38, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
- Meh - I completely agree with you however my equally supportive comment was removed. How the hell you can provide "diffs" for good behaviour I have no idea. I think people forget that some people have worked together for years not days. --Herby talk thyme 15:52, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
Time passes and nothing happens... It seems as though the OTRS admins have decided to "circle the wagons" and pretend that the Indians do not exist. I really do find it very worrying that part of the organisation dedicated to ensuring good communication happens has decided not to communicate with the community over issues that concern us. I have no idea what to do next - thoughts welcome. Regards --Herby talk thyme 17:27, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
- I do have a few thoughts, but I'm going to sit on them for a week or so until they've developed. I have a potential change that I might start sending out feelers on, but before I do that, I need to give it some thought. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 22:46, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?
I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!
Here’s how to participate:
- Learn more about this consultation
- Vote on and submit new campaign topics in the AllOurIdeas Survey
- Discuss campaign topics and ask questions on the IdeaLab talk page
Future IdeaLab Campaigns results
Last December, I invited you to help determine future ideaLab campaigns by submitting and voting on different possible topics. I'm happy to announce the results of your participation, and encourage you to review them and our next steps for implementing those campaigns this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered time to participate and submit ideas.
With great thanks,

JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)
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)
