User talk:Worm That Turned
Thanks for the welcome
Hi! Thanks for the welcome. I'm only planning to vote on the steward elections for the moment, but if I were to come back to meta, is there anything that needs doing. I know it's a silly question, but any suggestions would be appreciated WormTT 10:00, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
- Why would it be a silly question? :) Meta:About Meta is a good place to start, and has links to other important pages like our policies etc. If you're interested in translations, you can contribute to Translation requests and Translation of the week. If not, you can look at other cleanup tasks, participate in discussions at Meta:Babel, or find something that interests you on the Goings-on page. Jafeluv 11:08, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
- I'll have a look if when I've next got a free hour or two. Unfortunately I'm a monolinguist - though I can vaguely understand a lot of the latin/greek based languages, I'm sure I'll find so

"I'm still of the opinion indefinite =/= infinite"
"I'm still of the opinion indefinite =/= infinite" - I find that amusing because (on Wikipedia) 6 months implies more than 4 years. Come on, you know how it works. Logic doesn't apply. :) Ottava Rima (talk) 18:25, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
Hello, I've just added global renamer rights to your account. Please ensure that you are familiar with the Global rename policy and the policy for Global renamers. Thanks for volunteering! :) Ajraddatz (talk) 15:49, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.
An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.
The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.
Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign
If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnumwikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)
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) 13:31, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
