Tagging the Treasures[edit]

Hi Dan and Mark Just wanted to say a big Thank You for the incite you have given us in using Wiki. I have had excellent feedback from the attendees and you have certainly given us food for thought on the benefits of using Wiki as an invaluable tool. It was refreshing to see the passion of the real people behind the anonymous face of Wiki and to learn that Wiki has been striving to be taken seriously. Many Thanks Jacqueline LSAAC Tagger1 (talk) 19:56, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

any thoughts?[edit]

[1] means if we get that there, the whole schmozzle starts over again where australian authorities specifically say they have the southern ocean on their southern side, and the inner workings of the australian internal waters become part of an ocean 2000 km to the west. grrrr.

ahhh I found an answer, [2] a good answer I say JarrahTree 13:22, 14 June 2015 (UTC)


You are invited to join the discussion at Talk:Oriya_language#Requested_move_17_June_2015. Thanks. Cpt.a.haddock (talk) 21:29, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

I have no strong opinion on this. Bazonka (talk) 05:45, 27 June 2015 (UTC)


I wrote an article about this software company this week. It was speedily deleted - while I was asleep - on the basis that the article was promotional. I never had an opportunity to dispute this. Could you tell me how I might get it reinstated?Rathfelder (talk) 08:24, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

You'll need an administrator to look at the deleted article and potentially bring it back from the dead. You should post a comment on WP:ANI to raise it with them. Bazonka (talk) 05:44, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

International recognition of Kosovo[edit]

Why the revert? Against manual of style. --Arianit (talk) 09:42, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

I see, my bad, although slightly akward. --Arianit (talk) 09:43, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Liverpool on Sunday[edit]

Hi Bazonka. I'm probably not going to be able to make the wikimeet in Liverpool on Sunday, as I'm helping someone move house. I may be able to turn up later in the afternoon, though, depending on how long moving things takes. However, it looks like it's just you and me signed up at the moment, so perhaps it would be worth rescheduling it for some time later in the summer? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 12:55, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

No problem Mike. I was thinking of postponing anyway. I'll keep the page unchanged for a couple of days just in case anyone else signs up, but I doubt it. Bazonka (talk) 19:05, 22 July 2015 (UTC)


Many thanks again for your most helpful contribution and excellent training skills today. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:22, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Postpone the Manchester Meetup?[edit]

You may want to comment at meta:Talk:Meetup/Manchester/30#Postponement. Yaris678 (talk) 11:31, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry @Yaris678:, I've been away so not able to look at this properly until today, and it's too late to do anything about it now. Bazonka (talk) 17:32, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Citation template[edit]

I'm sorry to bother you, but I don't know who else to ask. The Citation template, which I use all the time, appears to have been changed, radically. I'm not sure if its broken, but I can't get it to work and I can't find any guidance. Do you know what's happened?Rathfelder (talk) 09:21, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Happily it has been restored to normality!Rathfelder (talk) 18:18, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, I was away so I wasn't able to look into this. Glad it's sorted now though. Bazonka (talk) 17:28, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Notification list for meetups[edit]

Hi Bazonka,

I've just noticed the list of people at meta:Meetup/Manchester. It says "If you want a message leaving on your talk page when the date of a future wikimeet in the North of England is set, then please leave your username below."

My name is on the list but I don't think I've ever had such a notification. Does this mean the messages don't go out? Or does it mean that I always sign up to quick?

If it is the former, maybe we should do something with User:MediaWiki message delivery.

Yaris678 (talk) 17:16, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

I don't send messages out. That list is very out of date, and on the odd occasion when I have contacted everyone on it, it's made no difference. I think we need to start from scratch, and the message delivery tool may well be part of the solution. I'll have a think about it. Bazonka (talk) 13:48, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Cool. What do you think the best approach would be? We could use a message that said something like this.
Hi there! Do you know that there will be meetups in Liverpool on the 27th of September and in Manchester on the 25th of October?

We have sent you this message because you signed up at meta:Meetup/Manchester. If you would rather not receive such messages on future, please remove your name from the list.

Yaris678 (talk) 12:03, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
I sent a message around back in March, which seemed to result in an increase in attendance at the following wikimeets, and a number of people added their names to the Manchester notification list as a result. See e.g. [3] - feel free to reuse that language if you want. I haven't sent out notices since then as I've gotten sidetracked with trying to find a better solution through User:Mike Peel/Wikimeet survey... Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 16:27, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
OK. I have created a draft message at User:Yaris678/Meetup message and a list of people to send to at User:Yaris678/Meetup list. Any comments before I press go on User:MediaWiki message delivery? Yaris678 (talk) 12:49, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
I started to send emails to a few people yesterday, manually using the "Email this user" link. I only got as far as Mikołka before the spambot kicked in and I was told to wait before sending more. So there's no point in mailing anyone before Gurbir2704. Thanks. Bazonka (talk) 16:07, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
OK. I have sent the message to everyone after Mikołka on the list (plus me and Mike, just to check it was working). Yaris678 (talk) 11:57, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Help us improve wikimeets by filling in the UK Wikimeet survey![edit]

Hello! I'm running a survey to identify the best way to notify Wikimedians about upcoming UK wikimeets (informal, in-person social meetings of Wikimedians), and to see if we can improve UK wikimeets to make them accessible and attractive to more editors and readers. All questions are optional, and it will take about 10 minutes to complete. Please fill it in at:

Thanks! Mike Peel (talk) 17:01, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
