Can this site be classified as semi-fishbowl

As unregistered users cannot edit or translate anything and registered users only have ablity to edit talk pages and user pages, and translating content, also creating an account is disabled. Can this wiki be considered "semi-fishbowl"? ToadetteEdit (talk) 20:03, 10 November 2023 (UTC)Reply

@ToadetteEdit: Can you elaborate? Considered for what purpose and where? --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 03:28, 6 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Translations of Board meetings

There seems to be a problem with the section titles for translations of this page. --Ameisenigel (talk) 11:30, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Ameisenigel: Thank you for letting us know! This has now been fixed. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 19:45, 27 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Request for translation administrator rights

Hi, I have been cleaning up some vandalism in my capacity as a global sysop. Since I am not a translation admin here, I am not able to delete translated pages (like Agenda:2016-04-22/bm, not a translation). Therefore I request translation administrator rights according to the Wikimedia:Accounts policy. Thanks, --Ameisenigel (talk) 09:11, 3 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Ameisenigel: Thank you for your help! I have gone ahead and setup these rights. Thank you again! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 22:20, 4 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

LincolnBot broke Template:Decade years navbox

In Special:Diff/361758 LincolnBot changed the "cat_prefix" parameter to "cat prefix" in Template:Decade years navbox. Note "cat_suffix" was not changed. By changing the parameter, Template:DMCA category by year (which uses the "cat_prefix" parameter) no longer links to the correct categories. For example, as of 27 March 2024 if you go to Category:DMCA 2023 you'll see that in the DMCA category by year nav box that "2022" no longer links to Category:DMCA 2022, it instead is linking to Category:2022. This is because the template Template:Decade years navbox is no longer recognizing the prefix passed in by Template:DMCA category by year. —RP88 (talk) 19:25, 1 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

@RP88: This has been fixed - apologies for the error - and thank you for the alert! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 19:49, 1 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Module:No globals

If I read the en.wikipedia TfD discussion correctly, the function of this module has replaced by strict library of Scribunto extension, and as it has no linked-in pages, do we really need a reason to keep it? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:34, 6 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

All set - I have gone ahead and deleted that page. Thank you, @Liuxinyu970226, for the ping! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 20:02, 6 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Add autopatrol to editor user group

I would like to propose to add the autopatrol user right to the editor user group because I think we do not need to patrol edits from approved staff accounts. @GVarnum-WMF: --Ameisenigel (talk) 11:03, 18 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

That is a reasonable idea. Curious what @Martin Urbanec (WMF) thinks - but I think it is worth considering and doing if technically reasonable/possible. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 17:21, 21 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Ameisenigel I think that makes a lot of sense! After a discussion among the Core Administrators team, I went ahead and implemented the change. Martin Urbanec (WMF) (talk) 13:26, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
That was quick! Thanks, --Ameisenigel (talk) 16:32, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thank you both! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 17:37, 22 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
