and then i finally became a serious University student...
and then there was Wikimania...

Your input is requested
Greetings, Amire80! If we have not met, I'm AutomaticStrikeout. I've come here to ask you to take part in the survey at User:AutomaticStrikeout/Are admins interested in a RfB?. I am trying to gauge the general level of interest that administrators have in running for cratship, as well as pinpoint the factors that affect that interest level. Your input will be appreciated. Happy editing, AutomaticStrikeout (T • C • Sign AAPT) 02:01, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
Assistance with edit request
Hello, Amir! I'm looking at an edit request on Talk:Israel Hershberg, and I'd like your assistance if possible. I don't understand what they're getting at so I'm declining the request for now, but they did include a few references. Normally I'd give the material a quick look to see if there's anything relevant, but it's all in Hebrew - which I know absolutely nothing about. I got your name off of the local embassy page... could you take a quick look and see if there's anything there that makes sense to you? Thanks! --ElHef (Meep?) 03:36, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for the question.
- I passed it on to somebody who is probably more experienced with this than I am. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 15:35, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

an advice or help from user Guglani1?
I had an old account with name Guglani since perhaps 2005, but long back i forgot its password and email associated was closed. subsequently i registered as Guglani1 which is working well. Meanwhile my accouts at other wikis registered as Guglani were also working well.I never used Guglani at en.wiki after i registerd as Guglani1.Meanwhile accounts at other wikis as Guglani have been ticked by me as Global account without ticking at en.wiki.Now some people at wiki have attached my Guglani1 a/c with my old Guglani a/c ,i am happy with it.But can I request , that my global a/c on other wikis as Guglani can also be attached and in so doing I should not loose all the old editorial history on wiki projects for these two accounts although these are at different wikis.Confusion comes on some wikis like en.wikibooks where i get user id as Guglani and Guglani1 both , how to sort out this cofusion.--Guglani1 (talk) 12:45, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
- You can trying asking at the page Wikipedia:Changing username/Usurpations. I hope it works. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 13:05, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Opting in to VisualEditor
As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 50 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "
Enable VisualEditor. It will not be available on talk pages and some other namespaces.". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:22, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kuvempu, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rashtrakavi (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Since the discussion at MediaWiki_talk:Common.css#IPA_font is a bit old, I didn't know if I'd get an answer there. When you say Gentium is supported by WP, did you mean Gentium Plus, or the original font? And can you point me to where it's supported? This is all new to me.
Also asked you what you meant at Help_talk:IPA#IPA_font.
- I realized that Gentium as it is is too huge - hundreds of kilobytes. That's not great for a webfont that should be quickly downloadable. I'll probably add SIL's subset for IPA, although I'll have to research that. I'll update you. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 15:41, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Books and Bytes: The Wikipedia Library Newsletter
I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 01:42, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
