New IRC Cloak[edit]

Hello, I see that you have translation administrator flag but apparently never used it; if I'm mistaken, forgive me and consider the rest of the message for what it's worth. The current wording of the policy says «add (and remove) themselves to the group if they are willing to help other users or need it», and you are sysadmin so you can add it to yourself at any time; but you may consider removing it for now. This would also help users willing to contact translation admins, making it easier. While I'm at it: please watchlist Meta:Babylon if you have not yet. Thanks, Nemo 11:30, 31 March 2013 (UTC)[reply]


Thank for your help to deploy the Vietnamese wikivoyage.--Cheers! (talk) 03:43, 12 August 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Interwiki map[edit]

Hi Reedy. I notice that the interwiki map is slightly out of date and that you've been involved in the last two runs. (August and September). Is there any possibility you could run the script or nudge whoever does? I'm afraid I'm rather at a loss on such things. WormTT 08:55, 21 October 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Done! Reedy (talk) 18:44, 21 October 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Request for feedback on my GSoC'14 proposal[edit]

Hi Reedy,

I am planning to work on the project titled "Tools for mass migration of legacy translated wiki content" this summer under Google Summer of Code. I have drafted a proposal for the same over the past few weeks. This project is going to help the translation adminstrators like you in a great way, as it would completely automate the tedious manual task of preparing a page for translation and then importing the translations into the Translate extension. You can check the proposal page for detailed information on how I plan to accomplish this.

As you would be an end user of this tool, it would be great if you could go through the proposal and provide feedback/suggestions. Your feedback would definitely help me improve the proposal as well help in creating an even better tool. You can do the same on the discussion page of the proposal or reply here, whichever is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!

P.S: I need to submit the proposal to Google by March 19, 2014.

Request withdrawnUnfair git merge[edit]

gerrit:153309, it made us the new protection level, which I just know it's very very and very unfair to all users of ALL sites using MediaWiki (not only WMF's), while of while if their bureaucrats have update received by git bash, they'll also affacted by this level, please, if you already knew what I've ///cried\\\ to say, submit another gerrit patch to withdraw it, thx. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 05:27, 22 August 2014 (UTC) [reply]

Please run wmf-config/interwiki.cdb[edit]

Hi Reedy. Can you please update the Interwiki map caché? We've done several changes on the map since the last update. Best regards and thanks in advance. -- M\A 16:16, 14 January 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Yeah, I will do when I have my deployment window in a few hours from now. Reedy (talk) 16:29, 14 January 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Fantastic. Thanks for your service! Best regards, -- M\A 18:18, 14 January 2015 (UTC)[reply]

No scratch codes available[edit]

Tracked in Phabricator:
Task T154171

Hello, my name is User:Angelo.romano (admin on English Wikipedia), and I am contacting you due to my inability to get logged in through the two-tier authentication method. Unfortunately I do not have scratch codes with me anymore (they all got lost, together with the Google Authenticator settings, as my old mobile phone basically died for good days ago), so I have no way to log in to anywhere through my account. I was given your reference by another fellow Wikipedia user on Help talk:Two-factor authentication, and I would love to ask if it would be possible for you to help me out on this. My email is angelo [DOT] romano [AT] gmail [DOT] com, if that can be of any help. I can also provide you with any other ways to ensure you about my identity, if requested. With best regards, Angelo. -- 13:37, 26 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

I need the help of a translationadmin in moving a page[edit]

Dear Reedy,

How is your day going? I don't mean to take so much of your time. I raised a little issue on Babylon's Talk and would be so lucky to have you help out. Thank you Danidamiobi (talk) 22:12, 22 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Question about accounts[edit]

Hi! Sorry for this weird question but, have you a WMF-only account? (emojii of person very curious)

I ask that since I usually click on stuff and I found interesting random stuff and I landed here (maybe from T254646) and I didn't quite understand whether WMF is funding this activity or if volunteers are doing the majority of things.

Yeah maybe are two questions, sorry for that. But thanks! :) and thanks for what you do in general Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 20:59, 20 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]
