Talk:Merchandise giveaways[edit]

Hi SHust, you have a question at Talk:Merchandise giveaways. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 22:40, 9 December 2015 (UTC)Reply


Hello! I have noticed your edit here; is this mean that Ato's nomination was unsuccessful? I would be very sad if it is the case because I truly believe that Ato deserves it. I know that we did not get many votes because I had not wanted to propagate this nomination on the Hungarian Wikipedia because I [we] wanted it to be a surprise. Thanks in advance your time and answer! Best regards, Bencemac (talk) 14:53, 16 May 2019 (UTC)Reply



I sent to you an e-mail on June 2, 2019. As requested, I sent another one on the same day, with the information requested, but so far I have not received any response. So I'd like to confirm that you've received that e-mail, and if it will take a long time to be answered.

Kind regards. Érico (talk) 02:55, 11 June 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hello Érico, please check your email. I do not approve grants myself but, the responsible party has replied to your request. Best, SHust (WMF) (talk) 00:36, 11 July 2019 (UTC)Reply

Merchandise nominations disappearing[edit]

Back in may, you made this edit to the merchandise nominations page. A number of nominations were removed, including the one where I was nominated by the community for something. Are these merchandise givaways not a thing any more? You left no edit summary and so I have no idea of knowing whether the nomination was approved or not (though I assume not as I have not received any communications about it). Given that the nomination occurred in August of 2018, then was unceremoniously deleted after no action for over 6 months, I would like some explanation of the process involved in this. If this is merely some sort of popularity contest, and I didn't reach some arbitrary number of votes required, know that some communities are smaller than others, and it would be disappointing if that is the way this thing is run (I would expect the content of the nominations would matter more than the number of votes). In any case, disappointing to see that pretty much all the open nominations were deleted, with none 'approved', despite some with dozens of impassioned supporters. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 23:50, 3 July 2019 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for your message and nominations do have a timeline. I"ll add this as a suggestion for future improvements.SHust (WMF) (talk) 22:00, 8 July 2019 (UTC)Reply

Image name in User info template[edit]

If you were trying to add a picture to your userpage, note that the template requires the name of the file without the "File:" prefix to work. So, the line would be | image name = Hust,_Sandra_Jan_2019.jpg . --Yair rand (talk) 22:25, 22 July 2019 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for the info, truly appreciated! --SHust (WMF)

I would love to know, how do I edit the history of Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa?[edit]

I feel that what has been written on Wiki is not enough and he may pass anytime now. I know him personally, have his books, one of which is known as "Indaba, My Children: African Folktales". I will endure to reference my editing to the level of a Harvard student

Merchandize nomination[edit]

I have here nominated someone from the Dutch Wikipedia: Merchandise giveaways/Nominations/Daniuu. Perhaps I did something wrong, as I can not find the nomination in the lists. HELP. The Banner (talk) 22:16, 27 October 2020 (UTC)Reply

Getting involved in Wikipedia Fundraising[edit]

Do you officially take on recognized supporters? I would like to keep Wikipedia involved in some projects I am working on and hope to arrange a percentage of profits as a donation.

Also do you accept crafted items as a donation so you can sell them to fund raise? 08:28, 26 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

I never got contacted or anything about this.[edit]

I'm of course extremely humbled and grateful for being approved to receive a nice shirt from the Foundation. I'm simply contacting you to let you know that, despite being approved, nothing at all happened from there. Is there anything I need do? Thanks. :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 03:20, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Oh, I should probably ping Seddon (WMF) as well, since he approved the nomination. :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 03:22, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hi Oshwah, thanks for the kind nudge! Can you please email merchandise@wikimedia.org? Our store merchandise giveaway associate will be happy to assist you with your nomination prize. Thanks in advance :-) SandraHust (talk) 16:16, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
