Why isn't he listed on the staff page? Maybe he is, but I can't find him. PiRSquared17 (talk) 21:52, 24 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

He's not listed currently. The criteria for when contractors get added to the staff page, are somewhat complex. I think it has something to do with both length and type of contract? (Some contractors are purposefully not listed, iirc). HR is in charge of all that, so if you want specific details, ask them. :) NWilson (WMF) (talk) 22:51, 24 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

Possible impersonation/fake or simply in-expertise?

Hi Quiddity, on meta.wiki there's a new user that is trying to setup a user page in partly copying other users' data, and stating that they work for the WMF. Could you have a look, please? --M7 (talk) 11:55, 15 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi @M7, thanks for the note. Searching the text used there, it's a direct copy of this other userpage (with minor tweaks). They are definitely not staff, as we are firmly told not to create our own staff account. They may just be a person trying to experiment with formatting? Please go ahead and ask them not to do so, or blank it, or block them if they are impersonating staff in discussions, etc, as you see fit. Thanks again.

The only edits were those on the user page. I just left a note to the user in their talk, and removed almost anything. Cheers, --M7 (talk) 19:14, 15 December 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hello again. The aforementioned user has reinstated some content on their own user page on meta, stating that they work for the WMF and displaying a @wikimedia.org e-mail address. Since I already removed some content leaving an explanation, I'd prefer to escalate this to the WMF itself, asking if you could kindly have a look and act, or have someone else with a valid WMF account to solve this. Thanks a lot, --M7 (talk) 07:47, 19 January 2024 (UTC)Reply
