interface translations invitation[edit source]

Dear Iceflow, thank You for contacting me, here are the promised informations about where (and how) to translate the interface:

The interface translations should all be done on betawiki: only, it is the place where all languages are updated and translated from. If You are interested in helping with the translations for Tok Pisin, please register an account, create a userpage and go to betawiki:Betawiki:Translator and You will be granted translator-status immediately.

For translating please set Your language to the language You want to translate (tpi) in the preferences and then go to betawiki:special:translate, there You can choose the most used messages, which I would recommend to start with.

The benefit of translating at betawiki instead of locally is that the translations will be available in all tpi-projects and in all wikimedia-projects in the user language settings. (see also betawiki:Translating:Intro)

If You have any questions or need anything, please feel free to contact me, thanks for Your help and best regards, --pisin (:> )=| 22:18, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

invitation[edit source]

As an Administrator, you are allowed into #wikimedia-admin, the cross-wiki coordination channel for Wikimedia administrators. Any member of the channel can invite you in temporarily, but you need an invite exemption from a channel operator to get in whenever you want. Please come to #wikimedia and ask for an invite.

Any admin from any project is welcome and it is a good place for cross-wiki coordination of vandal and spam fighting. It is also useful for new admins to contact more experienced admins in real-time to get help with the more complicated admin tasks such as history merges/splits and importing via Special:Import.

Please remember to translate the interface at betawiki: only and to upload images preferably at commons:

Thank you

Best regards, --pisin (:> )=| 23:33, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Bot thing[edit source]

I saw your message at my talk page. Why are you asking bot operators who are editing at the moment? Seems like a complete waste of time. If a bot hasnt used it's flag for 2 years, just deflag it. We have lots of wikipedia's (200+) if every wiki would start doing this i would be flooded with these kind of request. You might want to implement global bots here btw? (or did you already do that). I'll make it easy for you:

Bot policy[edit source]

Hello, the page Wikipedia:Haus bilong toktok does not have the usual statement that the wiki uses the standard bot policy. Do you see any objection to add it? Thanks. Nakor 18:55, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Admin access[edit source]

I've turned on your sysop flag on this wiki again on a temporary basis. Your permissions expire on 25 september 2009.

Thank you for your help,

Hi from Wantok[edit source]

Thanks for the note on enwiki. I haven't been active much at all on any Wikimedia projects lately, as you've noticed :) ...but happy to help out where I can. Good to see some attention is being paid to tpiwiki again. You mentioned needing some help with some translation? Wantok (toktok) 01:33, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi Wantok! yes, I do need some help with translation. We have this request >>> Wikipedia:Haus_bilong_toktok#Localized_logo so that we can have a localized logo, instead of one in English, and I can't figure out how to word it, so I was hoping you could... Also, My tok pisin is not improving a great deal, and some of the notes I post to people probably make very little sense, yet I don't like to use English unless I really have to. I could actually use another admin here, and wonder if you would be willing to go back to administration here please? Your TP is better than mine, and you have a lot greater chance of making yourself understood! BarkingFish 16:29, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

TjBot[edit source]

Hi, Thanks for contacting me.
I do not really understand by, "your account wasn't actually registered" ; what do you mean ? Both my account and my-bot account has been registered automatically using SUL which as well consider as local registration. Or perhaps I am mistaken.
If so, what should I do then ? Thanks Tjmoel 13:52, 1 Februeri 2011 (UTC)

Gadgets[edit source]

I noticed that there are no gadgets in the Tok Pisin Wikipedia, as opposed to many other Wikipedias. Gadgets such as HotCat could make categorization a lot less tedious than it is now, and I am sure there are other useful ones in there as well. I hope you can add this feature to the Tok Pisin Wikipedia with the permissions you have as an administrator. Anyway, here are a few helpful links: Wikipedia:Gadget, -Iketsi 19:31, 21 Jun 2011 (UTC)

Your temporary access is going to expire soon[edit source]

Hello, you were granted temporary adminship in this wiki which is going to expire in a few days. Just to let you know that if you want to continue as an administrator here, you need to request an extension on stewards' permission request page on Meta-Wiki. Usually adminship extensions do not require a local request. You just have to file a request on Meta by mentioning that you need an extension. Additionally, if you think the community is big enough to elect a permanent administrator, you can place a local request here for a permanent adminship, so stewards can grant you the permanent access. Please ask me or any other steward if you have any questions. Thank you! Trijnstel 19:32, 28 Janueri 2012 (UTC)

Protected pages[edit source]

Could you remove the "cascading" protection from the Fran pes? The problem is that there are interwiki conflicts that cannot be fixed by bots because they cannot edit templates that are used by the Fran pes (thus the "cascading protection"). Leave the main page protected, but remove the "cascading option" to leave its templates editable. --Iketsi (talk) 13:10, 26 Jun 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the message, Iketsi, I will get that done now. BarkingFish (talk) 15:32, 26 Jun 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. Could you also replace the interwiki links from the Main page by the {{Template:FranPesolIntawiki}} template? --Iketsi (talk) 17:48, 26 Jun 2012 (UTC)
Yep, I'll fix that now :) BarkingFish (talk) 19:01, 27 Jun 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! --Iketsi (talk) 19:32, 27 Jun 2012 (UTC)

Expiring sysop flag[edit source]
