Hi! I noticed you did this rename on kowiki locally. Because of this, we are not able to do the global rename, so it would be best if the rename would be undone, and his account unified. This would permit us to usurp the remaining accounts and rename him globally. Is that possible? Savhñ 17:51, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I will ask him about it. Thank you for notifying! --Sotiale (talk) 06:45, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Sotiale, 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.

Global renamer[edit]

Hi Sotiale. You have been granted the global renamer right some time ago. Can you please email me so I can subscribe you to the global renamers mailing list? Thanks. :) Trijnsteltalk 23:54, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

No renaming between November 20 and November 27[edit]


You’re getting this because you’re a steward or global renamer. The Community Tech team are working on cross-wiki watchlists. We need to add a couple of fields to the localuser table in centralauth database. In order to be able to do this, we’d need to run a script that will get in the way of renaming users. Our apologies – we realize this is getting in the way of your work.

We ask that you do not rename anyone between 00:00 November 20 (UTC) and 00:00 November 27 (UTC).

(UTC means that if you live in the Americas, it will be on the evening or afternoon of November 19 when the script starts running, and if you live in Oceania or eastern Asia, it can be closer midday on November 27 before we can be sure the script is no longer running.)

Phabricator task.

If there are any problems related to this, or you have any questions, please write me on my talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:42, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

URGENT: Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information now[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

This is a reminder to acknowledge and sign the new Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information. As you know, your volunteer role in Wikimedia projects gives you access to secure and sensitive information.

The new version includes one major change.

  • There is a change regarding the way personal data may be released. Accordingly, functionaries must notify the Wikimedia Foundation at check-disclosure(_AT_) before releasing data, in order to obtain a written approval for doing so. The Foundation will respond within 10 days. However, for emergencies, such as cases involving threats of violence, functionaries may release the personal data without such explicit permission, but they should notify the Foundation immediately following the disclosure. If they choose not to disclose the data, the request for disclosure should be forwarded to the Foundation's emergency email address (emergency(_AT_)

There are also some wording changes that were made to more closely align the language with evolving industry norms, best practices and laws. The most notable of these has been the change of the term "nonpublic information" to "nonpublic personal data". None of these changes are intended to make fundamental changes to the scope or practice of the policy but we know they could appear as such, hence wanted to flag them.

The aforementioned changes require users that have already signed the previous version of the policy to sign the new version as well.

We therefore ask that you to sign the updated version. Signing the agreement is tracked on Phabricator's Legalpad. An online guide is available to help you with signing the agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign. If you wish you can sign it directly at The exact policy is located here: Access to nonpublic personal data policy. The text of the confidentiality agreement is located here: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information

If you have already received this message and signed the updated agreement, you need not sign it again. Once is sufficient. In this case, we ask that you respond to Samuel (WMF) letting him know when (date) and how (method/process of signing) you have signed it so that we can update our own records.

Note: please bear in mind that if you still haven’t signed the updated version of the Confidentiality Agreement by February 13, 2019 your rights will be removed.

Thank you for your understanding,

Samuel Guebo (User:Samuel (WMF)), Wikimedia Foundation

LPP/ko needs update[edit]

As changes applied for 12 days. -- 02:49, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Happy to manage my own talk page[edit]

I have a preference that unless someone has admin rights, that they do not play with the trolls that wish to attempt to bother my talk page. I prefer that we don't feed these trolls, and get rid of them first prior to reverting their edits. They will just continue to try and play, and this one will just swap IP addresses, and they have a series ready to rock and roll. If they are attacking my page, they are leaving others alone.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:41, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Yes, I know what you mean. It would be better to do that. --Sotiale (talk) 12:51, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Sotiale, do you know any LTA cases that is related to 김괘걸? Minorax (talk) 14:17, 26 December 2019 (UTC)

@Minorax: Can you tell me what he did? There are many LTA cases in Korean Wikipedia. --Sotiale (talk) 14:21, 26 December 2019 (UTC)
Can't specifically say name it but if you take a look here, there are several accounts (26-ish) created with 김괘걸 in the username. Minorax (talk) 14:24, 26 December 2019 (UTC)
Hmm... There are guys who keep creating accounts. Korean Wikipedia has a filter to block them. But.. that case(-- '김괘걸' pattern) is the first pattern I see. --Sotiale (talk) 14:33, 26 December 2019 (UTC)
First of all, I will inform Commons administrator(maybe -revi). --Sotiale (talk) 14:36, 26 December 2019 (UTC)
I'll let him know the list for easy access. Thank you. Minorax (talk) 14:41, 26 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Minorax :) --Sotiale (talk) 14:43, 26 December 2019 (UTC)

About re-renaming[edit]

Dear Sotiale, thank for your help with my last renaming (here), but if I would like to rename my account and my bot again, would it be possible? Would it be a big task to accomplish renaming work due to my huge bot editing numbers? Thanks.--Lamchuhan (talk) 14:10, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

If it's possible, I will think twice this time before I make the request.--Lamchuhan (talk) 14:12, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
@Lamchuhan: Hi, Lamchuhan. Username can be changed up to two times(That is, next change is final). So you can change it once more. However, there is a requirement that six months have passed since the last change. The same applies to bot account. As you know, your bot account has too many edits. Therefore, to avoid potential problems, we must inform the system administrator before making the change. In general, we recommend that do not change bot account with too many edits. --Sotiale (talk) 14:46, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
