Encore des abus d'administration[edit]

Cher Yann, j'ai rédigé une requête pour commentaires à propòs de graves abus d'administration à wikipedia en Lombard: les utilisatuers lmo:user:Fabexplosive et lmo:user:Nick1915 ont bloque 18 comptes d'utilisateurs, en les calomniant d'être sockpuppets. C'est grave, parce que il s'agit d'utilisateurs qui avaient voté contre une proposition de règlement. Je te prie de bien vouloir agir contre ce "vandalisme d'administration". Si l'on ne respecte pas les votations, à quoi servent-elles? De plus, cette attitude rend vaine la dimension collaborative de wikipedia. Je te prie de bien vouloir ne pas sousestimer la gravité de la situation. Enfin, je te prie de considérer aussi que l'un de ces utilisateur a voté pour fermer wikipedia en Lombard: Proposals_for_closing_projects/Closure_of_Lombard_Wikipedia. On peut donc soupçonner que ce comportement ne soit pas bona fide. Merci bien, --10caart 07:35, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Des précisions[edit]

Bonjour, voici une précision: la votation avait réporté le résultat de 26 contraires et 8 à faveur. Mainténant les utilisateurs ci-dessus voudraient dire que la proposition de règlement, que a été rejectée 26 à 8, aurait au contraire approuvée. Cela s'appèlle, de façon claire: "duperie". Merci bien, --10caart 07:52, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

et enfin, voisi la page: lmo:wikipedia:Grott.--10caart 07:52, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello Yann,
please send your real-name, your wikiname, your Freenode-nick (if you have one), your prefered login-name and the public part of your ssh-key to Zedler-admins.png. We plan to create your account soon then. --DaB. 19:14, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Demande de changement de statut pour mg.wiktionary[edit]

Bonjour,

Je suis Jagwar venant de la wiktionary malgache, je suis venu vous faire cette demande de statut d'admin, car l'unique sysop de mg.wiktionary semble avoir jeté l'éponge.

En effet, depuis 6 mois, ni sur la mg.WP ni sur mg.Wikt Hery n'a été actif

Le problème, c'est que c'est le seul utilisateur à pouvoir changer les edittools de MediaWiki.

En effet, j'ai demandé à un sysop de fr.wikt mais il ne pouvait le faire et m'a donc proposé de vous contacter pour demander un changement de statut.

Merci d'avance, Amicalement,

Jagwar 16:37, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Wikinews.fr, que peut-on faire ?[edit]

Bonjour,

Vous avez répondu le 7 décembre dernier à une demande de CU émanant de Bertrand Grondin à mon sujet.

J'aimerais beaucoup que vous puissiez vérifier, en consultant les liens fournis par Bertrand Grondin lui-même (User : Trevras@fr.wn - for these constributions by attacking wikinews users integrity, trolls, insults), que l'affirmation selon laquelle je me livrais à des insultes envers les contributeurs de Wikinews est parfaitement fausse (ce serait même plutôt le contraire !).

Vous pourrez aussi, à cette occasion, constater que mon exclusion de Wikinews a été tout à fait brutale et très mal justifiée (voir par exemple le décompte des votes sur mon blocage), et qu'elle dénote un état d'esprit à mon avis diamétralement opposé aux préconisations de la Wikimedia Foundation. (Peut-être pourriez-vous vérifier, ce faisant, que le texte explicitant mon exclusion sur “ma” page de discussion est inexact : il m'est impossible, sans utiliser un faux-nez, d'écrire sur cette page et d'effectuer un recours, mes droits d'écriture ayant été complètement supprimés.)

En consultant cette page de discussion d'un article de l'édition du 19 janvier, vous pourrez de plus constater que Bertrand Grondin, comme il aime le répéter, persiste et signe : il a bloqué un lecteur qui tentait, maladroitement sans doute, de s'opposer à son traitement outrageusement partisan de l'actualité russo-géorgienne.

C'est d'ailleurs, au-delà de mon cas personnel, ce qui m'amène à venir vous ennuyer : tant que les gestionnaires de Wikinews se contentent de nuire à leur propre projet, c'est dommage, mais je me fais une raison. La propagande à laquelle ce média se livre sous couvert de neutralité me paraît en revanche extrêmement répréhensible. Ne peut-on rien faire contre cette dérive ? Quelle instance serait selon vous compétente pour débattre et statuer sur cette question ?

Je voudrais pour terminer souligner que la page d'accueil de Wikipédia.fr se fait l'écho des informations mises en avant par Wikinews, ce que je trouve pour le moins gênant.

D'avance, merci de votre réponse. Trevras 05:56, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

J'ai bien reçu votre demande. Je vais étudier ce problème. Yann 11:07, 21 January 2009 (UTC)


Merci. Et pour, peut-être, relancer votre intérêt, cette citation, extraite du fil « Déontologie » (qui avait mis le feu aux poudres) de la Salle café de Wikinews :

« J'ai fait quelques stats pendant l'été : au 3è trimestre, il y a eu 390 articles créés dont 140 venant de Rian (soit 36%), 33 de VOA (8%), 35 sur le foot (9%), 74 sur les autres sports (19%), 9 sur le droit français (2%), 32 sur la France (8%) et 67 sur le reste du monde (17%). La part de RIAN me semble trop importante. Sans polémiquer sur le contenu partisan et fumeux de certaines dépêches, elles devraient être moins nombreuses, même si la quantité des créations d'articles diminue. Leur fréquence fait sans doute fuir certains contributeurs potentiels. Un exemple de la propagande répétitive de cette agence : le paragraphe supprimé qu'on a vu plusieurs jours de suite sur tous les articles sur le Caucase. - Seherr 1 décembre 2008 à 00:20 (UTC) »

Ces statistiques ont donc été fournies par Seherr, administrateur de Wikinews en fonction à ce moment-là et qui a démissionné à la suite de cette affaire. Elles montrent la prépondérance écrasante des dépêches en provenance de RIA Novosti au moment où le conflit entre la Russie et la Géorgie atteignait son paroxysme. Je suis malheureusement incapable d'actualiser ces chiffres, mais une consultation épisodique de Wikinews semble indiquer que rien n'a changé depuis, ni dans le traitement de l'actualité, ni dans l'accueil réservé aux critiques... qui ne peuvent évidemment qu'être des « trolls » qui viennent « nuire au projet ». Bien à vous, Trevras 18:42, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Hi Yann, THanks a lot for showing your willingness to move pages once gu.wikisource is created. It would really be great help.--DhavalTalk 10:39, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Reg:Hindi wiki[edit]

Hi Yann, This is reg hindi wiki. As u r an admin there, & also connected with wikimedia, I thought that u may see the request better.
I am thinking of a program segment, that senses the logged in status of a member, & places a green dot on online, red on busy, yellow on idle & grey on offline, just like orkut/google/G-talk, etc & many more. Can we have this fac, atleast for the sysops' status. If you can direct this issue to right hands, so nice of you. --आशीष भटनागर 10:53, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
Hello,
I think that your proposition would be violating Wikimedia privacy policy, so I don't think it would be accepted, and is even a good thing. Regards, Yann 11:37, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
So nice of you replying me,
But the things are quite different. As you might be aware about the Google, G-Talk & orkut, etc. The user holds an option to be invisible. That way, he appears to be grey (as if he is not online) while being very much online. Only when a user opts for Green status, the user is shown green. I think this suffice the solution for the privacy issue.--आशीष भटनागर 17:44, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

CU[edit]

I'm just wondering where your RFCU for meta is:

  • (show/hide) 23:23, 11 November 2006 Yann (Talk | contribs | block) changed group membership for User:Yann@metawiki from Bureaucrats, Stewards and Administrators to Bureaucrats, Stewards, Administrators and CheckUsers ‎

Thanks  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 17:05, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

That was in 2006! Yann 21:14, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
That's why I ask. CU#Meta lists you as having it for log access. But we don't do that any more - if there's a valid RFCU then you just get bumped into the regular section. But I haven't been able to find one.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 00:19, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I removed that. Yann 15:22, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Can you respond me, please? --Vivaelcelta (talk) 02:19, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
You are at the wrong place. You need to ask a steward, which I am not anymore. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:04, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]

WPCube.png

I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:38, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Open Call for Individual Engagement Grants[edit]

IEG barnstar 2.png

Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is accepting proposals until April 12th to fund new tools, research, outreach efforts, and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers. Whether you need a small or large amount of funds (up to $30,000 USD), IEGs can support you and your team’s project development time in addition to project expenses such as materials, travel, and rental space.

With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources 15:57, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Participate in the Inspire Campaign and help address harassment![edit]

NounProject Leaves.png

Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.

Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,

Community Wishlist Survey votes[edit]

Hi Yann, Thanks for participating in the Wishlist Survey! I'm sorry that this wasn't clear -- this is the proposals phase of the survey, when people are posting and discussing proposals. The voting phase starts in a couple weeks, on November 28th. We're not counting votes that are cast early, because the proposals can change during this phase, and you might end up voting for something that changes in a way that you didn't expect. I've added some text at the top of the page, explaining this better.

I don't want people to see your Support votes and get confused, so I'm going to change the Support template in your message to "Good idea". If that response doesn't work for you, then feel free to change it. Sorry again about the confusion -- I'm really glad that you're participating. I hope you keep coming back to discuss and improve proposals, and you'll have a chance to vote starting on Nov 28th. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 19:02, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello! I'd like to remind you again that the voting phase has not started yet. Your input on individual proposals is most welcome, but the issue is by adding the Support Support template others may be mislead that it is a !voting survey. Thanks for your understanding!

Copyright problem with File:Education and WGIG.pdf[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Education and WGIG.pdf. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

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. Jusjih (talk) 03:33, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi Jusjih,
I think it is historically important, as it mentions Wikipedia. There is no real copyright issue, but it doesn't have a formal license. We should be able to keep such files somewhere. Regards, Yann (talk) 19:40, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Wikimedia CH/Call for projects 2017/Scanning books for Wikisource[edit]

Dear Yann: I have read your grant proposal and found the idea of book scanning just great! Maybe this piece of information will help you: there is a professional book scanner in Zurich - in the library of UZH Deutsches Seminar (Schönberggasse 9, 8001 Zürich) - freely available for any library user. The machine is busy <20%, from my experience (scanned 10+ books already), and the scanning is absolutely free. I could provide the exact details of the model if needed... --Balabinrm (talk) 20:25, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi Balabinrm,
Thanks for your message. Actually most university libraries have a scanner. I know 2 of them which have one in Geneva. And Zurich is a bit far for me. ;) So I dropped the idea to buy a scanner for now. However I am still interested in partnerships with GLAMs for scanning books. Best regards, Yann (talk) 16:32, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Interviewing you about Structured Data on Commons[edit]

Hi Yann,

Firstly, I should introduce myself. I'm Jonathan Curiel with the Wikimedia Foundation, and I'm helping to work on WMF's Structured Data on Commons project. At Wikimania in Montreal, I'm interviewing Commons users about the project, and I'd like to interview you. I'd ask about implementing structured data into Commons, interacting with structured data, how best to involve the community, and other questions. Would you have 30 minutes at Wikimania? I'd try and accommodate any time you have available there.

Thanks so very much for your consideration. Appreciate any time you have. And I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

All my best,

Jonathan JCuriel (WMF) (talk) 01:14, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
