Hallo Tim, danke für die Unterstützung in Ouaga (editierend und auf der Mailingliste)! Mittlerweile gibts eine Stadtseite und ein Wikiprojekt. Lg, 18:16, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Nachsatz: Es gibt jetzt eine Mailingliste. 10:33, 31 October 2008 (UTC)


Well it's nice to have company, god luck with "de:*". I would be glad to help out more if you need anyhelp. I believe one of the things that needs to be done is writing guidelines how to do things as an admin. Mainly, how do pages for deletion get marked, how do spam pages get markd etc.. I'm saying this without having a good grasp how these things are done atm moment. Erik Johansson 01:10, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Namespaces for languages

Hi, I'm working on templates for building glossaries (User:FrViPofm/Glossaire).

For an easy use of them in the different tongues, they use the namespace of the tongue. But I see there is a lot of tongues without namespaces.

Could you (you or an other administrator) improve the config file to create those namespaces ? Thanks. FrViPofm 13:00, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Inactive admin users

Hi Avatar. How's things?

You haven't been very active on the wiki lately, and there's been some discussion of removing inactive admins on the wiki. We haven't developed a process around this (and I hope to avoid doing so in great detail) but I'll probably go ahead and remove admin permissions on the least active people. At the moment this includes you! But I'd also think it would be reasonable to re-add past admins on request too. But let me know what you think. ...If you reply on here I guess you'll be active again :-)

Hello! And sorry for bothering you, but descriptions of files you uploaded need to be improved.

You have uploaded files which are licensed as requiring attribution. But right now attribution is not specified properly.

Please, ask for help if something is confusing or unclear in this message.

Please, fix that problem with this uploads - note that images with unclear licensing situation may be deleted.

Attribution may be missing completely or just be specified in nonstandard way, in either case it needs to be improved. Note that using CC-BY files without specifying attribution is a copyright violation, which is often unethical and unwanted. So clearly specifying required attribution is needed if license which makes attribution mandatory was used.

If it is applying to your own work which not based on work by others - then you can select own user name or some other preferred attribution or even change license to for example {{CC0-self}}

For your own work: ensure that it is clearly stated at file page that you created image/took the photo/etc

For works by others - please ensure that there is link to the original source which confirms license and that you used proper attribution, or that source is clearly stated in some other way.

Especially for old OSM-baded maps, made from data before license change on 12 September 2012 you should use "map data © OpenStreetMap contributors" as at least part of attribution

For old OSM Carto maps, which predate license change on 12 September 2012 you can use a special template {{OSM Carto screenshot||old_license}}
