Sidebar edit

Hi. This edit doesn't make much sense. You've moved the "Donate" link outside the "Support" section and into the "About Wikimedia" section. If there are issues with collapsed sections, those should be filed in Bugzilla or addressed to the appropriate party in order to reach a proper resolution. Moving things around to avoid Vector's stupidity shouldn't be necessary. --MZMcBride 19:37, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

For me, "Support" is automatically uncollapsed by default, so I'm not sure why Philippe is seeing it as collapsed. Cbrown1023 talk 02:17, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
Odd... we checked during a meeting, and it was collapsed by default. But I'll double check and if it's not, I'll move that back. Philippe (WMF) 17:48, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Template:2010/Donate-now6 - ILS


I'm sorry if i messed up something at Template:2010/Donate-now6. If i understand correctly, we need to have our currency there. How can we add it? --Amir E. Aharoni 18:34, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Fundraising links

Currently Fundraising and Donate have different content, and the homepage links to both. Could you make the pages the same, or consistently point the links on Home to the current preferred version? Thanks,--Eloquence 21:56, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Yep. Philippe (WMF) 22:45, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, but what about the localized pages, as Сделать_пожертвование (used in Russian interface)? Also "Donation" links in Russian-language wikis linked to Global_Support/ru directly. Must be changed to WMFJA1/RU? --Kaganer 17:41, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
Are canged (for Russian project/pages);) --Kaganer 18:20, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
PS: At least {{DonateLang}} template (available on Ways_to_Give/en page) should have links to the current fundraising pages.--Kaganer 17:41, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
PPS: Maybe Holding/JA1/en also should be redirected to WMFJA1/en? --Kaganer 17:41, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you - he

the page is ready (no other changes) --Itzike 11:21, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi Itzike - if you're speaking of this page: m:Fundraising_2010/thank_you/he then it's not quite ready. That appears to be an Israeli version of the page, which is great and would be fine for use at /IL. However, we still need a version of the page for non-Israelis. The one I linked above appears to have a donation link to WM-IL, which wouldn't be correct for non-Israelis. I'm going to reset the status to proofreading so it doesn't get accidentally published. Philippe (WMF) 11:50, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
the text is 100% translation of the English version. you can just fix the donation link to your correct WMF landing page. --Itzike 11:59, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but I'm still not sure that's correct. For instance, the PS seems to address events in Israel? Philippe (WMF) 12:10, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
How you want us to separate the IL page and the HE page so your team could use it? The meta have only one version of the page. --Itzike 12:13, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Well, chapters are responsible for building their own localized pages throughout this fundraiser - have been since the very first landing page of the year. We provided access to the Foundation wiki so that you could do that. Then, you only need to submit to us one version: the non-chapter version, where the text should exactly match the source text. It looks like we already created the Israeli landing page from what you gave us, so all we need is the meta version. Philippe (WMF) 12:22, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Fix. enjoy :) --Itzike 13:11, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! Philippe (WMF) 13:13, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Sustaining corporate donors

Why was Sustaining corporate donors deleted? --MZMcBride 22:52, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Becuase they were moved to Template:Benefactors.  :) Philippe (WMF) 22:53, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
Some of the listed companies were moved back to Template:Benefactors, you mean? I don't see a reason for the older revisions to be deleted. Is there one? And the current page, if it's dead/replaced, should be a redirect to Benefactors, right? --MZMcBride 22:55, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
Yes, some of the listed companies (those who had not expired) were sent back to the template. The reason for the older revisions to be deleted is, quite simply, because I was asked by my boss to delete the page while he was reorganizing things slightly. And yes, the page should be a redirect, but I haven't gotten there yet. I've been answering these talk page notes. :) Philippe (WMF) 22:57, 7 September 2011 (UTC)


Hi. Who is User:Jmayall? I looked at Staff, m:Wikimedia Foundation contractors, and, but didn't see anything matching the name. --MZMcBride 05:27, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi MZ. Jmayall is Jeanie Mayall - she's a generalist in the HR department. She was announced here. I'm not certain why she isn't on any of the usual haunts, but I'll ask and hopefully have an answer. Philippe (WMF) 06:51, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Talk:Work with us

Hi. I reverted your archiving of Talk:Work with us. Most pages here aren't ever archived as they don't build up enough threads to warrant it. Or if they do, it takes years. In this case, there was activity... today(!) in both threads. And there are only two threads on the page, so I can't imagine why it would need to be archived already. Archiving should also be done with copying and pasting to keep page histories intact. Thank you. --MZMcBride (talk) 23:56, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
