Copyright problem with File:Wikimaniabidding2011.svg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Wikimaniabidding2011.svg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

Wikimania 2012[edit]

Thanks for reminding.

We will decide about going ahead with the bidding on a meeting on January the 9th. Last year we withdrawed our bid because in informal conversations with a member of the jury informed us that rotation was more important that what it seems just reading the rules. Finally we get surprised by Haifa winning bid because Haifa is approximately the same distance from Gdansk than Barcelona. I wonder if before deciding on going ahead you could advice us about the exact weight of the rotation criteria. --Gomà 08:05, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Thank you for informing. The bid is going ahead and we are going to have an IRC meeting tomorrow to discuss what should be done. --Seksen iki yüz kırk beş 10:01, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi Josep Thanks for your attention to the Barcelona & Andorra bid for Wikimania 2012. I am sorry but the organizing committee decided to retire the bid. Is it necessary that we put any note in the bid or this message is enough? --Gomà 17:28, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

This note will be fine. Thank you for letting me know and I do hope to see another Iberia bid in the future whether it from spain, portugal or andorra. 131.251.143.253 21:18, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Thank You![edit]

Seddon:) On behalf of WMF I would like to thank you for your cooperation during the last fundraiser and we look forward for more fruitful and successful fundraisers over the next years. Thanks again :) --Melamrawy (WMF) 12:19, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Temporary adminship expired[edit]

Hello Seddon. The temporary adminship that you requested on this wiki has expired. The rights should have been removed some time ago but it seems we missed this one. If you need the tools again please re-aply via RfA as before. Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 22:14, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Wikimania 2013[edit]

Thanks for the heads up. We are currently in the planning stage for the first Indian National WikiConference in Mumbai (Nov 2011) - any bid will probably have to be prepared simultaneously. This gives us a wake up call - we need to start preps or delay the bid by a year. AroundTheGlobe 12:38, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Translator, We need you![edit]

Dear Seddon,

You have helped us in previous years with translations and for that we are most grateful. Now we turn towards the 2011/12 fundraiser. It may seem forever away, but work has already begun getting everything ready to go. This year we want to have landing pages covering as many countries in as many languages as possible.

Right now, we want to figure out who is interested in translating for the fundraiser. This year we're hoping to have more of a solidified "core" group of translators that we can count on to have work done by a few key dates, but we'd also welcome help from people who are willing to just help out when they can.

If you would be interested please take a look at this little sign-up survey and fill it out http://survey.wikimedia.org/index.php?sid=13638&newtest=Y&lang=en. With that we can start building a list of people and filling any gaps in the languages we serve.

Many Thanks

RFA[edit]

Hi there! I've closed your RfA as not successful as there was no consensus to grant the flag. The result was 4/3/2. Maybe you can try it later again when you are more active around here and when you actually fulfil all criteria (listing of languages on your userpage as described here) etc. Best, -Barras 08:40, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Copyright problems[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Highpaypalbutton.png, File:2010form.png, File:FieldsShowing.png and File:C11 0908 Sarah EN.pdf. However, they're currently missing information on their copyright status. They may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the files. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description pages.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at this page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Mathonius 02:00, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

For your information, you've uploaded a few more files without providing a license and source. I've tagged those as well. Mathonius 02:03, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

No worries[edit]

No problem at all, I'll request that your account is globally locked - essentially it means that you can't log in across all of the wikis (and you're logged out if you're already logged in). It's non-controversial because it's used for a lot of staff and if you do return back to the Foundation, then it's a simple job to unlock it again. The Helpful One 00:44, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
