Немного пахлавы для вас!
Can you please explain to me why you reverted my change on:
This person is no longer named Stephen but Stevie.
You have no editing history here, and it's not obvious why you have authority over their name. Why are you the one doing that rather than the actual person?
I'm the actual person :) @Marostegui is my teammate, and was very kindly fixing an instance of my deadname that i had missed. As you can see from https://wikimediafoundation.org/role/staff-contractors/, my name is now Stevie.
I'll re-make the edit on the SRE page for clarity.
The Inuka Team: We need your help.
Thank you so much for all the work you do in translating pages marked for translation. It is great to have you doing so much work to ensure that knowledge is available in other languages.
Once again, we will need your help in translating the pages below to the language you know:
Please, don't feel pressured to finish all the translation; it is okay to translate some of the pages.
[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with MediaWiki and Wikitech communities
The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?
In this regard, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the technical communities in Wikimedia. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!
- Round 1 - Feb 25, 4:00 pm UTC
- Round 2 - Mar 4, 4:00 am UTC
- Sign-up and meeting details: Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/Call for feedback: Community Board seats/Conversations/MediaWiki and Wikitech
Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions. KCVelaga (WMF), 14:37, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
Blocking users based on filter logs
I don't think you need to take that route. One of the benefits of the abuse filter is that it pre-emptively prevents spam attempts, and 95% of them do not make it to namespace. I do not see any benefit with your approach.
I'm admittedly not sure how effective it is, but anecdotally I have observed accounts that failed to add spam initially return later and do so, and there are certainly accounts that spend significant time tuning their approach through multiple edit attempts---stopping them sooner than later does seem worthwhile. That's probably still of overall minimal impact within the volume of other, more successful spam, so the benefit is likely marginal, but it is also not negative, and leaving active accounts for obvious spambots seems like a poor practice that can only have a negative outcome.

Changes were reverted
My changes to highlight specific terms used in Extension:EasyTimeline/syntax were reverted. (Thanks for rescuing the missing word change after the change was reverted.) I thought that using italics to highlight the items made the article easier to read, faster to understand. But perhaps I am unaware of a standard way to highlight such items -- is there one? Or perhaps the standard is to not highlight them, hence the revert?
Hi. Sorry about that---the revert was accidental, and I undid it right after.
Might want to delete
Manual:Administrators/nqo - not a translation. Thanks much :)
Thanks (would require translation admin, but someone else got to it already anyway).
- Admins have the ability to grant themselves the translation admin via Special:UserRights
- This could have been deleted without translation admin rights by mass deleting pages created by the user who created the page (which was yourself during an earlier mass deletion in this case).
this - crosswiki vandalism. Thanks
Ignore. Already Globally locked.
