Lovely Wikipedia

Thanks for your comment about the Lovely Wikipedia event. I am not sure about splitting the events. It's a shame we could not discuss it yesterday. I'm sure we'll sort something out soon enough!Harrypotter 00:18, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

I've commented on the project page - hope we can meet up to discuss soon. 13:15, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Project Proposals

... When you have read this comment feel free to delete it so we can keep an upbeat positive note to the new projects. --ClemRutter 14:04, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Fair point - I've removed it. Thanks for pointing this out. 15:28, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


No worries mate, my name is actually Joseph anyway but thats besides the point :P I dont know anyone who calls me that anyway. 23:36, 19 April 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for coming up with the idea of a Poll. I've moved it to a more appropriate page. It's probably a bit early to conduct a poll at this stage, but that's not to say a fork might not be a good idea a bit further down the line.Harrypotter 05:53, 20 April 2009 (UTC)


Could you please relay my apologies to the rest of the board for not being able to make to the last board meeting and for not replying to any emails that may have been sent. I had my phone stolen on the weekend and I am currently on a geology field course with my unversity down dorset and devon. I was going to be using my phone to attend the meeting on tuesday but given that it was stolen I have been unable to contact any of the board members. I have finally been able to find a computer that will allow me to edit here but for some reason it wont let me access any of my email addresses. I hope to have some sort of connectivity on saturday but I am unlikely to get a connection until then. I do apologise for any inconvenience this may have cause the board. I hope to catch up soon with anything that may have occured since last week. Any responses in regards to this post may as well be sent to my googlemail email as I am unlikely to read any response until saturday. Seddon 20:42, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Good job

Keep the good work up, I'm hopeful all will go well here. I'm new to here, but not Wikimedia, returning after a long break from it! --Kexford 21:44, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Many thanks - great to hear! We're always very keen for help so please let me know if there's anything specific you are able to help with. AndrewRT 21:49, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Liverpool Library Wikimedia Presentation Day

Your feedback would be much appreciated here. --Kexford 09:40, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Freedom of information request

Please see my note here. Were you involved in the 26 September letter to UKCC? Please let me know. Thanks. Peter Damian 09:20, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Peter, Thanks for your note. I haven't seen the link - not sure if it's been moved. I'm afraid Wikimedia UK is not a public organisation so the Freedom of Information Act does not apply. Nonethless, we have adopted openness as a core principle we would like to achieve so may be able to agree to your request. All correspondence with the Charity Commission has been approved by the Board of Trustees prior to sending it (minor email acknowledgements excepting) and I have been a Trustee since the founding of Wikimedia UK. Regards. AndrewRT 13:21, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

AGM resolutions

Hi. Could you please publish any legal advice you have received regarding the two resolutions you have just proposed? --Tango 00:47, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

I will check with the lawyers and do this, but you may be expecting a bit too much! AndrewRT 10:22, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Just a note on wiki maintenance...

Hi Andrew, just FYI, it's worth checking "what links here" after you move a page, just to make sure the move isn't leaving behind a chain of redirects redirecting to redirects (I happened to notice a couple of double redirects left behind from the move of Conflict of Interest Policy). Best, Harry Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 06:01, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Cheers for the nudge Harry. enwp has a bot that does it itself, so I'm used to not bothering but of course I have to here! AndrewRT 10:24, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

User rights change

Hi, this is to let you know I have requested the removal of your bureaucrats rights on this wiki, which has since been carried out by a Steward, as per the existing policy to restrict bureaucrats rights to current board members and staff. Regards -- Katie Chan (WMUK) (talk) 16:15, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi KTC - thanks for letting me know, that's fine. 21:28, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
Are you also reviewing admin rights? This list - - looks quite long! 21:34, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
I have removed administrator rights from those who have been inactive for more than 12 months per Wikimedia:Administrators. We don't currently have an established process or policy regarding review and removal of administrator rights for other reasons. For others rather than me to decide. -- Katie Chan (WMUK) (talk) 21:53, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

A proposed deletion

Hi Andrew- just a courtesy link to Water_cooler#Proposed_deletion:_Wikimedia_projects since you're the author. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 14:31, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
