Applying opt-out option on hiding interwiki search results in non-English wiki sites[edit]

Hello again. Statistics of gadget usage says that (as of now) 43 people are hiding/disabling the results from their accounts via user prefences. I suspect the numbers will increase to the 100s range. I would love to send a message at En.wp, but I can't as the issue doesn't seem to limit to just en.wp. Instead, I would like to leave the message here at Meta-wiki because it's about applying the "opt-out" idea to all other wikis. I discussed this with two others, who suggested either discussing this idea with local wikis or writing a proposal at a community wishlist (like 2016 Community Wishlist Survey). Thoughts? --George Ho (talk) 00:58, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

I think the 2016 Wishlist might be a better place to start because more inter-wiki editors would see it and the proposal would be more accessible to the population at-large. Shearonink (talk) 13:19, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
Umm... The 2016 Wishlist is over. Let's wait for the 2017 Wishlist, shall we? --George Ho (talk) 18:03, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
Oops, my bad. I can hardly keep up with all the WP-/WM- news... Shearonink (talk) 18:06, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
*sings* Oh... *ends* No worries. I found out about global user preferences under development. --George Ho (talk) 21:23, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)[edit]

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)
