template:sp edit

Would it be possible to alter this template to include a caption field? Ther are quite a few disambiguos names and I would like to use this template for all species in a list. Epibase 15:34, 15 November 2009 (UTC)Reply

You mean using {{Sp}} in a genus with multiple species with homonymous names? Yes, we could add a parameter to have it recognize that. Could you give a concrete example, so that we can see what exactly should be added to the template? Ucucha (talk) 00:06, 20 November 2009 (UTC)Reply

Plebejus edit

Not all species are gone to a special subgenus or Group . so i don't now to which i should redirect it.

You could redirect the subgenus to the main genus page, and the species to their appropriate current taxonomy. Ucucha (talk) 03:06, 11 December 2009 (UTC)Reply

Papilio edit

Moet ik dan eerst de Papilio (Menelaides) aanmaken?

PeterR 19:24, 11 December 2009 (UTC)Reply

Ik heb er nu een paar gedaan. Maar de Lijst van species onder Papilio (Menelaides) is nog steeds niet confirm the templates.

OK bedankt voor de hulp

Thanks! edit

Thanks for reverting that vandalism on my user page, I didn't notice! I guess I should put a watch on my own user page ... Stho002 01:04, 14 February 2010 (UTC)Reply

Not a bad idea I think. :) You might also want to semi-protect your user page, as there are quite a few vandals who find it interesting and no one other than you really needs to edit it. Ucucha 13:30, 17 February 2010 (UTC)Reply
Or just full protect userpage. I don't find any need for any one else to touch my userpage. Just leave the talk page unprotected. OhanaUnitedTalk page 21:38, 17 February 2010 (UTC)Reply

Multilinguality edit

Hey Ucucha, can you take a look at this? Cheers. Pikolas (talk) 00:56, 2 July 2010 (UTC)Reply

Re: Wollumbinia and edit

I think it should be unprotected. Or semi-protected. In the main namespace, only the Main page and Forsíða/Fo are the other two that are fully protected. see here And what is odd about Forsíða/Fo is that it indicates that User:OhanaUnited reduced the protection level. It certainly does not seem in the keeping of the wiki to keep it fully protected. Open2universe | Talk 13:44, 21 December 2010 (UTC)Reply

Unlock? edit

Please advice me on this matter. Stho002 has changed and then locked a template "of mine" (Template:HOM), without any effort to contact me with a reason or with a request that I should make some edition to the template... or delete it. The template is very simple, just so one don't have to type a much used frase in botany. The changes made by Stho002 makes the template totally useless in botany and also give strange information on the pages where it is used. The changes turn it in to a zoological template. Stho002 does not reply my messages since April. Can it be unlocked and restored? Uleli (talk) 08:19, 16 July 2012 (UTC)Reply

He might have forgot. Why should you jump so fast to the conclusion that he's ignoring your message? OhanaUnitedTalk page 19:40, 16 July 2012 (UTC)Reply

An important message about renaming users edit

Dear Ucucha,

I am cross-posting this message to many places to make sure everyone who is a Wikimedia Foundation project bureaucrat receives a copy. If you are a bureaucrat on more than one wiki, you will receive this message on each wiki where you are a bureaucrat.

As you may have seen, work to perform the Wikimedia cluster-wide single-user login finalisation (SUL finalisation) is taking place. This may potentially effect your work as a local bureaucrat, so please read this message carefully.

Why is this happening? As currently stated at the global rename policy, a global account is a name linked to a single user across all Wikimedia wikis, with local accounts unified into a global collection. Previously, the only way to rename a unified user was to individually rename every local account. This was an extremely difficult and time-consuming task, both for stewards and for the users who had to initiate discussions with local bureaucrats (who perform local renames to date) on every wiki with available bureaucrats. The process took a very long time, since it's difficult to coordinate crosswiki renames among the projects and bureaucrats involved in individual projects.

The SUL finalisation will be taking place in stages, and one of the first stages will be to turn off Special:RenameUser locally. This needs to be done as soon as possible, on advice and input from Stewards and engineers for the project, so that no more accounts that are unified globally are broken by a local rename to usurp the global account name. Once this is done, the process of global name unification can begin. The date that has been chosen to turn off local renaming and shift over to entirely global renaming is 15 September 2014, or three weeks time from now. In place of local renames is a new tool, hosted on Meta, that allows for global renames on all wikis where the name is not registered will be deployed.

Your help is greatly needed during this process and going forward in the future if, as a bureaucrat, renaming users is something that you do or have an interest in participating in. The Wikimedia Stewards have set up, and are in charge of, a new community usergroup on Meta in order to share knowledge and work together on renaming accounts globally, called Global renamers. Stewards are in the process of creating documentation to help global renamers to get used to and learn more about global accounts and tools and Meta in general as well as the application format. As transparency is a valuable thing in our movement, the Stewards would like to have at least a brief public application period. If you are an experienced renamer as a local bureaucrat, the process of becoming a part of this group could take as little as 24 hours to complete. You, as a bureaucrat, should be able to apply for the global renamer right on Meta by the requests for global permissions page on 1 September, a week from now.

In the meantime please update your local page where users request renames to reflect this move to global renaming, and if there is a rename request and the user has edited more than one wiki with the name, please send them to the request page for a global rename.

Stewards greatly appreciate the trust local communities have in you and want to make this transition as easy as possible so that the two groups can start working together to ensure everyone has a unique login identity across Wikimedia projects. Completing this project will allow for long-desired universal tools like a global watchlist, global notifications and many, many more features to make work easier.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the SUL finalisation, read over the Help:Unified login page on Meta and leave a note on the talk page there, or on the talk page for global renamers. You can also contact me on my talk page on meta if you would like. I'm working as a bridge between Wikimedia Foundation Engineering and Product Development, Wikimedia Stewards, and you to assure that SUL finalisation goes as smoothly as possible; this is a community-driven process and I encourage you to work with the Stewards for our communities.

Thank you for your time. -- Keegan (WMF) talk 18:24, 25 August 2014 (UTC)Reply

Invitation to join the Ten Year Society edit


Dear Ucucha,

I'd like to extend a cordial invitation to you to join the Ten Year Society, an informal group for editors who've been participating in the Wikispecies project for ten years or more.

Best regards, Dan Koehl (talk) 03:04, 20 April 2015 (UTC)Reply

Your administrator and bureaucrat status on Wikispecies edit

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc.) was adopted by community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.   You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for 2 years) on the wiki listed above. Since that wiki does not have its own rights review process, the global one applies.   If you want to keep your rights, you should inform the community of the wiki about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your rights, please contact the stewards at m:Stewards' noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish to continue to maintain the rights.   If you wish to resign your rights, you can reply here or request removal of your rights on Meta.   If there is no response at all after approximately one month, stewards will proceed to remove your administrator and/or bureaucrat rights. In ambiguous cases, stewards will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review. If you have any questions, please contact the stewards.
