Wikimedia Philippines igliwat

(I'm very sorry, but I am not an Waray-Waray speaker. I do ask for translation of this message into the Waray-Waray language.)

My fellow Waray-Waray Wikipedians, I am requesting from your community today to join in helping towards the establishment and development of Wikimedia Philippines, the Philippine chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation. You may join the Association by signing our participants' list. You may also view our Association Articles and Incorporation at Bylaws, give comments and/or suggestions or translate into Waray-Waray, and vote for the approval of the Articles of Incorporation so that it may be forwarded to the Wikimedia Foundation chapters committee.

I hope this becomes a successful process, and we appreciate the help. Thank you very much. --Sky Harbor 17:28, 2 Hunyo 2007 (UTC)Reply

Mga bot igliwat

Hello. Sino po ba ang mga admin dito?? Dahil po sa inyong "puntahan ng pamayanan" (kapihan sa tagalog wiki) maraming nag-aaply bilang maging bot ng wiking ito. Sana may tumugon, salamat. Estudyante 07:15, 17 Abril 2009 (UTC)Reply

Hi, I'm the admin here. I have no problem granting bot status to many of the bot applicants here but I don't have bureaucrat powers. Bureucrats and Stewards have additional powers that admins don't have. My admin rights only permit me to protect, delete pages, block users and translate the interface. I'm unable to create additional admins or grant bot status. But thanks for bringing this up. Hopefully one of the stewards in meta who have access to most wikis can do it--they did it for some of the other bots. --Harvzs 01:48, 18 Abril 2009 (UTC)Reply
Wala po bang pamayanan dito katulad sa Tagalog Wikipedia? Sa amin po, mayroon po kasing statistics doon para po sa mga bagong dating. Mabuti po at tinugon nyo na po yung tungkol sa mga bot...salamat. :) Estudyante 05:51, 18 Abril 2009 (UTC)Reply
The Statistics page can be found at Special:Mga Estadistika. It's actually accessible from the Main Page (Syahan nga Pakli) if you click on the number (in the opening paragraph in the main page where in Waray it says "mayda 5xxx nga artikulo"). Actually it's Silvonen that deserves the credit for implementing the bot policy. Silvonen made the proposal and after waiting for a reasonable time implemented it. --Harvzs 06:01, 18 Abril 2009 (UTC)Reply

Racibórz igliwat

Hi. Can somebody write an (at least ;] ) short stub about my city (Racibórz) on your Wikipedia? Many thanks for anyone who could do that :) Olos88 06:56, 22 Hulyo 2009 (UTC)Reply

Done. See Racibórz. --Harvzs 00:49, 9 Nobyembre 2009 (UTC)Reply

Translation Request of article about Austrian writer Klaus Ebner igliwat


I am Irina Walter from Austria, interested in literature and working on a project to translate the article about Austrian writer K. Ebner into other Wikipedia languages. Thus I would like to have this article also translated into the Waray language, be it in its original length or in a shortened summary layout. This section is my wish/request (I hope it is the right place). Source texts are available in different languages, here are the most important:

In addition, there are also articles in Tagalog and Cebuano, which are shorter but may help you further.

If you have any further questions, please don't hestitate to contact me on my English or German user page. Thank you very much for your endeavors!

Irina Walter, from Baden, Austria, Europe. --Irina Walter AT 14:56, 14 Hunyo 2010 (UTC)Reply

Do not translate that article. Irina is a spammer and probably a sockpuppet of Klaus Ebner himself, and has been blocked at the English Wikipedia. See en:User:Irina Walter. She tries to market that non-notable author to every Wikipedia. Ignore her.

Foundation Images Policy igliwat

Hi everyone,
I am Yosri from Malay Wikipedia. Recently I was informed by certain parties that MS Wiki need to delete any images tagged as Non-Commercial under Foundation Licensing policy. After I have done some studies, I realised that Wikipedia Foundations is moving towards allowing commercialises all images, as such they are acting on behalf of commercial company to require all images loaded with tagging Non-Commercial in all Wiki Project to be removed, including those loaded in local Wiki. You are only allowed to licenses your images under "free content", which specifically allows commercial reuse, example GDLF 1.2. Certain images is exempted under a very narrow EDP ("exemption doctrine policy") definition. If you all already aware about this, please ignore this comment. Otherwise, for more details please visit http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump#Wikimedia_projects_still_using_non-commercial-only_images.3F Yosri 05:24, 2 Marso 2011 (UTC)Reply

Request for a Waray flag igliwat

Hello, I am making list of linguistic flags or similar symbols. It is here. For Waray-Waray language I found only flag (or seal) of Samar. However, I want to avoid statist seals, so I found this logo. Is anyone willing to create flag of Waray people or language? It can contain features from seal of Samar or AnWaray logo, but it must differ. The best format would be SVG. I miss flag for Bicolano too. I write here because Harvzs (talk) told me on this page that he is "unable to create any logo but maybe other members here can help". So I ask once more. Thank you.

Dear Wikimedians,

We are reaching out to you today regarding the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election. This election was due to open on August 4th. Due to some technical issues with SecurePoll, the election must be delayed by two weeks. This means we plan to launch the election on August 18th, which is the day after Wikimania concludes.

We are truly sorry for this delay and hope that we will get back on schedule on August 18th. We are in touch with the Elections Committee and the candidates to coordinate next steps. We will update the Board election Talk page and Telegram channel as we know more.
