Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Yerpo, and 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 Meta:Metapub (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing!

Supplementary messages[edit]

Hello Yerpo.

I noticed that you translated the fundraiser's core messages into Slovenščina (sl), thank you for your help! Although the fundraiser is over, your translation work will still be used until next November (when we get new forms).

Unfortunately, there are some missing messages and pages that were not included in the original request. Would you mind translating these supplementary messages too?

Thanks for your help, and please feel free to leave a message on m:Talk:Fundraising 2009/supplementary messages if you have any questions! Az1568 (talk) 19:40, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

I'll see what (and when) I can do, hope there's no rush. Yerpo 13:04, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

New weights[edit]

My name is Paucabot and I'm from catalan wikipedia. I would like to congratulate you for your work in Talk:List of Wikipedias by sample of articles#One thought about weights. It seems to me a very reasonable improve of the way of counting article length.

However, there is a feeling in catalan Wikipedia (as you can see in ca:Viquiprojecte Discussió:Els 1.000#New weights) that there is a conspiracy to steal catalan first position in this ranking. They say that every change done in the list damages catalan position (and that is true). But that is this way because we have not a complete wikipedia, and every change in some articles lowers our score. If this change is approved, we will have to extend nearly 400 articles to reach to our previous score. But while others keep thinking about conspiracies, I can see all of this is because of the fragility (or, in the case of error in weights, wrongness) of our first position.

Thank you for your work. Paucabot 16:34, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your message. I didn't realize that Catalan editors take this measure so strictly. — Yerpo Eh? 17:02, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Yerpo, 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 right[edit]

I have allocated your right to the global renamer group. Please look to subscribe to the mailing list. Welcome and congrats.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:11, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. — Yerpo Eh? 11:27, 22 October 2014 (UTC)


Pozdrav, someone has messed up with the wikidata, (exactly on January 8th), on this one article (one on the list). So, many of wikis appears to have this article as absent (I'm working on, and this 1 missing article in fact exist). It's not big problem but is it appropriate to update your tables now or wait to the February lists? Srdačan pozdrav iz Sarajeva. --C3r4 (talk) 08:55, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the notice. The same problem was last month with en:Musa (genus) (d:Q8666090) / en:Banana (d:Q503). It just has to be accepted that the output can be vulnerable to Wikidata changes. The scripts takes two days to run so I think it's better to wait.
PS: odgovorio sam na engleskom da mogu i drugi da razumeju. Pozdrav u Sarajevo :) — Yerpo Eh? 12:40, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. Anyway, just to notice that changes in Wikidate can have some (minor) influence in result. You're doing good job. Također pozdrav v Sloveniju. ;)--C3r4 (talk) 16:06, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
Me again :) We have again one situation. On they swapped d:Q613 and d:Q612. I don't know will it be changed on list of 1000 too? (Opet nas .... znaš več šta, jer je kod nas to mali članak a kod vas ga nema).--C3r4 (talk) 14:51, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
This distinction is stupid, IMO, even the article en:Dubai (the one connected with Q612) which is supposed to be about the city treats them as synonyms. I'd just leave the situation with the list like it is, it will only affect :enwiki's score anyway. — Yerpo Eh? 15:01, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Wikimedia CEE Spring 2015 2nd meeting[edit]

Dear Yerpo,

I am contacting You as a contact person of Slovenia for the Wikimedia CEE Spring 2015 event and to announce that the second meeting for the Wikimedia CEE Spring organisation team will take place on the 28th of January 2015. There will be 2 discussion groups for the meeting, as to get as much people involved (some of us have other engagements during the daytime and others are not available during the evenings).

The first group will start the discussion 12:00 CET (13:00 EET, 14:00 MSK, 15:00 AMT/AZT, 17:00 ALMT, 3:00 PST).

The second group will start the discussion 18:00 CET (19:00 EET, 20:00 MSK, 21:00 AMT/AZT, 23:00 ALMT, 9:00 PST).

During the discussion both Skype call and IRC will be used. For more details see event meetings page! Wikimedia Eesti will be responsible for moderating the groups, however all contributions to the etherpad protocol are more than welcome!

Thank you for your kind attention and CEE you soon! --Kaarel Vaidla (WM EE) (talk) 12:23, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

5 may 2015[edit]

Hi! I think last update is wrong. In list of absent articles for Bashkir language there are some already existing articles. For example enzyme (ba:Ферменттар), Malnutrition (ba:Ашап еткермәү), Glycine max (ba:Соя), sugars (ba:Шәкәр) and others. --Rg102 18:41, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

It appears that the script didn't detect those articles somehow. I ran it again and fixed the output, thanks for the note. — Yerpo Eh? 05:40, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! --Rg102 06:31, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

lost Belarusian score[edit]

Dear Yerpo, with this update, the highest score (+5.38 at 8.03.15) of Belarusian Wikipedia was lost. Please, restore it. --Дзяніс Тутэйшы (talk) 09:47, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Agh, thanks for noticing, I'll fix it right away. I'm having some problems with that part of the script. — Yerpo Eh? 18:25, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for maintaining of all this :). These ratings are very helpful for quality improving. --Дзяніс Тутэйшы (talk) 22:10, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

@Yerpo: Will you look at my request on Steward requests/Username changes page. Hitch Hicking Across Sahara (talk) 05:06, 22 September 2015 (UTC)[edit]

It seems like is outdated. Could you update this?Beyond234 (talk) 20:39, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Me? I'm sorry, I'm not the one maintaining this tool, you have to contact the person from the Portugese community who does that. — Yerpo Eh? 05:40, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]


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)

Should FuzzyBot remove all potentially outdated translations?[edit]

Hello, thanks for adding multiple new translations in your language here at Meta-Wiki in recent years. Please join the discussion with your opinion: Should FuzzyBot automatically remove all potentially outdated translations?. Nemo (talk) 12:01, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Missing update[edit]

It seems like the stub page was not updated Boivie (talk) 07:04, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

I think I forgot to hit "save", thanks. — Yerpo Eh? 07:22, 6 March 2016 (UTC)


Hi Yerpo. Thanks for your work on Tech/Server switch 2016/sl. Ops has decided to do this at 14:00 UTC, instead of 07:00 UTC. Could you update the translation? I added the new times yesterday, but I didn't invalidate the previous translations, so you'll need to look for the sentence in the already "Translated" section (not the "Outdated" section). I believe that there here have been a couple of smaller changes since the last time you looked at it. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:14, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
