Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello, XXBlackburnXx. Welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum if you need help with something (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Happy editing!

User page if undertaking cross-wiki work[edit]

Would you please consider creating a meta user talk page, preferably with #Babel tag, if you are undertaking cross-wiki work, especially when working in the SWMT. It gives knowledge to those who are seeing your edits and reverts some understanding on how and why the work is being undertaken. Thanks for the consideration.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:05, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Revert on fo.wp[edit]

Hi XXBlackburnXx.

Thanks for reverting the damaging edits in this article (Tróndur Patursson) on fo.wp. But it isn't the only article user Derf420 has damaged. Could you do the same with this article (Sólrún Michelsen), since User Derf420 has done a lot of damaging editing and I don't know how to revert all these edits through a single action. Thanks in advance.--2003:CF:3F47:15D2:45BB:ADC9:A384:C6D2 14:22, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Great! Thanks a lot.--2003:CF:3F47:15D2:45BB:ADC9:A384:C6D2 14:28, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know -- XXBlackburnXx (talk) 14:40, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
That user already indef blocked. Just a notification. Thanks to both of you on SWMT job.--AldnonymousBicara? 14:44, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Maybe we should just leave criticism[edit]

Hi. I feel that criticism of people can generally be left when it is not a sheer attack, and it is politely, or somewhat politely, made. We should not be hiding from criticism of ourselves, or others in how they undertake the taks that they undertake, whether we agree with it or not. Would you prefer people held to high standards, or simply ignoring criticism? (And you were definitely right to revert the edit to the archives)  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:28, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

User script to access other watchlists[edit]

Hi XXBlackburnXx,

If you remember, you participated in the 2019 Community Wishlist Survey, including the discussion for reviving "Crosswatch" to allow for cross-wiki watchlists (Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Watchlists/Revive Crosswatch tool).

I sent you this MassMessage because I wanted to let you know that I have made a user script to make accessing your watchlists on different wikis easier, since for now that wishlist item has not been actioned.

The way it works is that, on any wiki, when you look at your watchlist, there is a button labeled "CA" that takes you to the CentralAuth page for you. There, when looking at your own information, each link to a wiki ("", "", "", etc.) is changed so that it links to your watchlist on that wiki.

If you are interested in using it, just add mw.loader.load('//'); to your global javascript page. This imports the code at m:User:DannyS712/Watchlist.js.

If you want to learn more, there is documentation for the script available at w:en:User:DannyS712/Watchlist. If you would like to discuss the script, talk to me at m:User talk:DannyS712.

Thanks, --05:50, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
