Hi Sj. Please could you make a note of what licence the images you are uploading are under on their image descriptions pages. Thanks. Angela (@en)]] 06:54, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Absolutely. Sj


Aphaea: Conjured! With great thanks. Sj


sul doesn't seem to apply here... Sj

just a note, this seems to be intentional: see bugzilla:12096. Cbrown1023 talk

Local files

Hey Sj. There are a bunch of file uploads from you from 2004 of files used in Wikimedia Quarto apparently. It looks like most (maybe all) of the files exist on Commons. Is there any reason for them to exist locally? Example files: File:Itsukushimajinja-2.JPG, File:LentosNightBlue.jpg, etc. --MZMcBride 12:23, 14 November 2009 (UTC)Reply

Where they exist on Commons, there's no need. Thanks; Sj 22:56, 7 July 2010 (UTC)Reply
on that note, here's a duplicate: Special:FileDuplicateSearch/WQ3CoverEnglishSmall.jpg Arlo Barnes (talk) 13:38, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

Fundraising principles resolution

I started a discussion about the new fundraising principles resolution here: http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Review&oldid=2156114#.22Wikimedia_fundraising_principles.22_Board_resolution --MZMcBride 23:30, 9 October 2010 (UTC)Reply

Thanks MZM. There is also the general page for WMF discussion -- we need to be much better about showing readers where they can go to comment on different pages on this wiki. Sj


This version is different from current translatewiki:MediaWiki:Babel/es. Maybe just wait for upgrade this MW installation?--Kaganer (talk) 16:39, 4 January 2013 (UTC)Reply

Changes to editing access and login setup

Hello @Sj: First, thank you for your efforts here on Foundation Wiki and now Governance Wiki over the years. Second, I wanted to make sure you were aware that as we complete the transition to the planned Governance Wiki setup, we will be making further changes to editing access and the setup of logging into accounts.

Over the coming weeks, we will be enabling Single User Login (SUL) on this wiki - allowing all registered users edit access to the talk pages as well as translation pages. Editing on main namespaces will be limited to approved accounts. You can find additional information about these planned changes on the Meta-Wiki page for Governance Wiki. Once this transition is completed, we will begin reviewing what additional access and setup changes may be necessary to best support the purpose of this wiki. Again, thank you for all of your assistance over the years, and we look forward to seeing you utilizing the new setup. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 02:11, 19 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

How we will see unregistered users


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)
