Hello Pyb. Your request for user name usurpation has been archived (see discussion). —{admin} Pathoschild 06:59:31, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Pyb, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

WikiCon francophone - réponse des Alémaniques[edit]

Bonjour Pyb. Voici la réponse - un peu décevante - à ta question par rapport à une organisation à Strasbourg : aucune piste pour l'instant. Cordialement. --MireilleLibmann (talk) 20:02, 14 January 2016 (UTC)Reply

Wikiconférences et thèmes[edit]


Je viens de voir les thèmes pour la wikiconf. Certaines sessions étiquetées « techniques » pourraient faire peur aux participants, alors qu'elles sont consacrées au rédactionnel. Je pense à mes deux sessions consacrées à l'outil de traduction et à l'éditeur visuel.

Qu'en penses-tu ? Trizek (WMF) (talk) 17:49, 21 June 2016 (UTC)Reply



Je viens de voir découvrir la conf et ta session sur l'éditeur avec SPARQL. C'est cool. J'y assisterai. Hésites pas si tu veux de l'aide durant la conf sur cette partie.

2016 Community Wishlist Survey[edit]


You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

Community Wishlist Survey 2020[edit]


You are getting this message because you've previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey, in either the Wikisource or Wiktionary categories. I wanted to let you know that this year's survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until November 11. Unlike previous years, we are only accepting proposals for non-Wikipedia content projects with no dedicated teams (i.e., Wikibooks, Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikiversity, Wikispecies, Wikivoyage, and Wikinews). You can learn more on the survey page.

You can vote on proposals from November 20 to December 2. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won't send out a separate reminder to you about that. We look forward to your participation. Thank you! IFried (WMF) (talk) 18:52, 22 October 2019 (UTC)Reply

Community Tech Launches Wikisource Improvement Initiative[edit]


We hope you are all healthy and safe in these difficult times.

The Community Tech team has just launched a new initiative to improve Wikisource. We have created the first project (Improve ebook exports), which came out of the 2020 Community Wishlist Survey. We now invite you to share your feedback on the project talk page. Please let us know what you think of our project analysis; we want to hear from you! Furthermore, we hope that you will participate in the other Wikisource improvement projects, which we’ll address in the future. Thank you in advance and we look forward to reading your feedback on the project talk page!

Wikisource Pagelist Widget - First Iteration Feedback[edit]

Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Wikisource Pagelist Widget is now available on Beta Wikisource. We need your help in testing the widget and providing feedback.

You can test the widget by editing the following Index page on Beta Wikisource:


There is a new ‘Preview pagelist’ button under the pagelist field. Click it to get a preview, and then click on any page number in the preview to open the widget.

You can also create a fresh Index Page for any other PDF or DjVu from Wikimedia Commons and test it.

We need your feedback on the following questions:

  • What is your general opinion about the Pagelist Widget?
  • Is it obvious how to use the widget? If not, what is difficult to understand?
  • What other changes would you like to suggest in order to improve the widget further?

Please provide your feedback on the Project Talk Page on Meta-Wiki.

P.S. - The widget doesn’t work on Local Uploads in Beta Wikisource as of now (due to phab:T257807).

Petit coup de main dans le cadre de ma thèse[edit]

Bonjour Pierre-Yves, J'espère que tu te portes bien. Je viens vers toi en espérant gagner un peu de temps dans ma recherche d'une source publiquement accessible qui permettrait d'appuyer l'affirmation selon laquelle Wikimédia France a préféré abandonner le privilège de gérer directement les dons récoltés en France lors des campagnes de récolte exercées sur les projets Wikimédia pour ensuite poursuivre avec des demandes de subvention adressée à la fondation. J'ai contacté par Signale Adrienne, directrice de l'époque, mais je n'ai pas de réponse. Je viens alors vers toi dans l'espoir de trouver cette source. J'aimerai la mobiliser au sein de la section analyse économique du mouvement de ma thèse. Une belle fin de journée !

Call For Volunteer Facilitators Across Africa [edit]

The African Narrative
The African Narrative

Dear Wikimedian,

The Africa Narrative is seeking volunteer facilitators in Egypt (two volunteers) and Senegal (two volunteers) for the AfroCreatives Wikiproject.

The AfroCreatives Wikiproject aims to support and mobilize creatives and professionals from the African creative sector, as well as enthusiasts more broadly, to contribute and enhance knowledge on Wikipedia about Africa’s creative economy. Its inaugural effort will target the film sectors of Egypt, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Senegal.

The Africa Narrative (TAN) is a non-profit that develops singular, high-impact initiatives in support of African creatives and the African cultural and creative industries with the aim to strengthen capacity in the continent’s creative economy and the global visibility of African cultural soft power.

All volunteers must have full professional proficiency in English. In Senegal, they must have native or full professional proficiency in French; in Egypt, they must have native or full professional proficiency in Arabic. Volunteer facilitators should have a vast knowledge about Wikimedia projects and experience with teaching new editors. All volunteers will be compensated.

Interested participants may sign up on the project's Meta page. You may also indicate your country and email if your Wikipedia account is not associated with any email address.

The Africa Narrative/Volunteers

We will be glad if you can share with or recommend an Egyptian or Senegalese Wikipedian as well.

Thank you.
