Inviting you to MediaWiki groups[edit]

Hi David, looking at your profile we were wondering whether you would be interested in any of these brand new MediaWii groups just being formed as we speak:

Your participation or at least your endorsement there would be appreciated. Thank you!--Qgil (talk) 17:35, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

I don't have lots of available time, but I'm interested. Can you tell me the first steps to getting involved and perhaps helping? Thanks, David Spalding (  ) 23:23, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the quick reply. A simple way to start is to add your ~~~~ here and watch the page to stay in touch. We are planning a first activity in January. Pointing there your testing/qa colleagues interested in Wikipedia is also appreciated. :) --Qgil (talk) 01:10, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Article Feedback deployment[edit]

Hey Qgil; I'm dropping you this note because you've used the article feedback tool in the last month or so. On Thursday and Friday the tool will be down for a major deployment; it should be up by Saturday, failing anything going wrong, and by Monday if something does :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 23:43, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

WP:Snuggle is live at[edit]

IRC office hours for wiki-mentors and Snuggle users[edit]

Hi. We're organizing an office hours session with the Teahouse to bring in mentors from across the wiki to try out Snuggle and discuss it's potential to support mentorship broadly. The Snuggle team would appreciate it if you would come and participate in the discussion. We'll be having it in #wikimedia-officeconnect on Wed. July 17th @ 1600 UTC. See the agenda for more info. --EpochFail(talkwork), Technical 13 (talk), TheOriginalSoni (talk) 18:37, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi Qgil! I just wanted to post a reminder that this discussion will be happening in about 24 hours. --EpochFail(talkwork) 16:15, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Dev input requested at wikt:Wiktionary:Grease pit/2013/November[edit]

(Sorry, I'm finding it hard to keep track of the technical liaisons. If you're not the right person, could you point me in the direction of who is?)

The English Wiktionary is having a discussion at wikt:Wiktionary:Grease pit/2013/November about best how to re-organize our language metadata for ease of editing. (Currently we have a single data-module that maps all known language-tags to information about language-names, script info, diacritic-removal rules, and so on.) Since we use the language metadata on 3,544,079 pages (about 92.6% of our pages), and edit them pretty often, I think it would be good if a MediaWiki dev could take a look and say whether there are any performance considerations we should be keeping in mind, whether there are any approaches that are better than others, etc.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Ruakh, I guess the correct link is wikt:Wiktionary:Grease_pit#Module:languages. Since this topic is about modules and performance, anomie and Ori.livneh might have something to say. You may also want to consider the possibility or reaching the developer community sending an email to wikitech-l mailing list.--Qgil (talk) 20:49, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
Cool, I've asked anomie and Ori.livneh. If they feel we should reach out to a wider group, I'll do so. Thanks again! —RuakhTALK 22:21, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

VP post[edit]

If it's alright with you I'd like to remove our exchange from VP and leave the original post. I made an erroneous assumption that's now muddied up the thread, and I apologize. I think you might want to edit your original comment though, so it simply requests task suggestions, and include the link you provided to me listing the current open tasks -- others might be getting confused as I did. equazcion 06:38, 8 Dec 2013 (UTC)

Hi equazcion, no worries. I'm not familiar with the VP policies. Can we just edit/remove our own posts? I have no problem if you remove your comments and I edit mine accordingly to make things clear. However, I don't want that anybody blames me for this, pointing to some wiki page explaining that actions like these should be avoided. Sorry for the paranoia, every time I put a foot in w:VP-T I get as response either silence or a rant. :) I'd rather be cautious.--Qgil (talk) 06:56, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
I hear you. How about I move the exchange to my talk page and leave notes in both places? I'm fine with people blaming me; but I've done this before and haven't gotten complaints so long as the other participants in the exchange are in agreement. I'll leave your original post alone and you can edit it how ever you see fit (whether you want to take my advice above or whichever). equazcion 07:03, 8 Dec 2013 (UTC)
PS. Yes, you're allowed to edit your own post, as long as you don't change it substantially when there are already replies -- but I'd be removing the replies. You should be fine. equazcion 07:11, 8 Dec 2013 (UTC)
I just made the move. If you see any issues, or want it undone, just let me know. equazcion 07:25, 8 Dec 2013 (UTC)

Dear Mr. Qqil, about one month ago i try to login to phabricator website but i couldn't do it. I noticed that the e-mail I'm registered with is wrong. I cannot create another account because my present account is connected to the one on wikipedia. How can i change my e-mail in order to access the website?--LikeLifer (talk) 20:41, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi LikeLifer. Are you trying to login clicking the MediaWiki sunflower button at ?

Earth system science[edit]

Dear Qgil-WMF -

You long ago made a great contribution to the article on Earth system science, when you added a section called "Inspiration in the Gaia theory." I wanted you to be aware of current activities involving it: everything you did with that section was removed completely by Toby Tyrrell back in November of 2014, with a brief comment that it was irrelevant. Tyrrell is a leading critic of Gaia theory, with a book purporting to "disprove" it. I found this to be an egregious conflict of interest, and complained about it when I noticed it early this summer. I then wrote a new and more in-depth section based on yours - but with your Amsterdam Declaration section made into its own separate section, etc. I also added a lot of non-Gaia material to the whole ESS entry.

Anyhow, the Gaia material has been continuously removed and the subject of more or less constant edit warring since. If you care about this material, it could surely use more editors who don't exactly want to expunge "Gaia" from the discussion!! Very best, Terradactyl (talk) 02:01, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
