Please see this page if you are looking for an administrator. Although I am an administrator on the English Wikipedia, please direct most administrative requests to that page so that other administrators can find it more easily. If you are looking for me specifically, please use this page.
This is a user talk page for me, k6ka. This page is used to leave publicly viewable messages for me.

It is currently 01:29, April 20, 2018 EDT[refresh] where I live. Again, I'm a volunteer user and I am not employed by the Wikimedia Foundation, so I may not be able to respond to your comments immediately. Please be patient. Someone else may respond to your comment, and if they do, please do not be rude to them.
If you're new to Wikipedia, please take a look at the introduction. You can also play The Wikipedia Adventure, a fun, interactive way of learning how to edit Wikipedia in under an hour. After that, if you still have any questions, please ask them at the Teahouse, where friendly, experienced editors can help you.
Please don't ask for a username change here! If you want your username to be changed, please file a request at Special:GlobalRenameRequest instead.
Finally, please sign your posts by adding four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments, or by clicking the or buttons.
If the situation needs to be discussed privately (Very rarely the case!), you may email me. However, I'm not obliged to respond to your email, so I'd prefer you use this talk page instead if possible.
This user may be away or inactive for varying periods of time, especially if he has exams.
Although he may occasionally be able to do some editing, talk page messages might not receive a timely response.
This user is busy in real life and may not respond swiftly to queries.

Hi! I recently encountered a userpage, User:AlwiZaman30 that looked to be a copy of your userpage with little changes. Do you have any idea as to what the appropriate course of action would be here? And is this some sort of LTA? hiàn 03:23, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
@Hiàn:Majora just blanked their userpage. Their edits sure do look suspicious; new users don't exactly join Wikipedia copypasta-ing an admin's userpage and creating templates to replace MediaWiki system messages. I'm not in the business of sniffing out LTAs but I am inclined to believe that this is probably someone's sock. —k6ka🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 03:44, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
Latest tech news from the Wikimedia technical community. Please tell other users about these changes. Not all changes will affect you. Translations are available.
Changes later this week
Profiling statistics for an abuse filter tell how often edits match the filter. The statistics for the abuse filters were reset after 10000 actions. Wikis can now decide to reset it more or less often. They can file a phabricator task to do so. 
Abuse filters will now treat integers and floats more precisely. For example, 5/2 was rounded down to 2 but will now be 2.5 and 2*4 will be the integer 8 and not the floating-point number 8.0. Division values are the only ones changed. For the rest only strict comparisons (=== and !==) will be affected leaving the values unchanged. 
The new version of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 17 April. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 18 April. It will be on all wikis from 19 April (calendar).
You can join the next meeting with the Editing team. During the meeting, you can tell developers which bugs you think are the most important. The meeting will be on 17 April at 18:30 (UTC). See how to join.
You can join the technical advice meeting on IRC. During the meeting, volunteer developers can ask for advice. The meeting will be on 18 April at 15:00 (UTC). See how to join.
The new PDF renderer could not create PDFs from books. Books are in this case collections of pages on a Wikimedia wiki. PediaPress will take over development of the books-to-PDF function. 
Pywikibot will no longer support Python 2.7.2 and 2.7.3. 
Thank you for keeping up on those sock puppet accounts and for taking care of them so quickly - your actions make a big difference and I hope you know that it doesn't go unnoticed. For your diligence, I present you with this barnstar. ~Oshwah~(talk)(contribs) 01:07, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
