Interwiki links

Hi Roger. I saw this—to make an internal link, the code is m:Meetup/Sue Gardner at Imperial College London. The full list of codes for different Wikimedia wikis is here. Just type the code for the wiki you want, followed by the name of the page. I'd do it for you but... full protection! :) HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:40, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I've been trying to puzzle out the mystery of what WMUK is and what it does. Would anyone be able to walk me round this plan, to explain what the various grants and payments are for, who would be eligible to get them, and the process by which the decision is reached? Many thanks. Peter Damian 18:16, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Peter, The Objects of WMUK are set out at companies house and discussed publically at our recent EGM. I'm not sure any of our volunteers would have time to do what you request but you could make an enquiry on the talk page. Which if you remember if where I asked you to restrict your correspondence to. Victuallers 23:48, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Brief conversation

You said you had a brief conversation. Could I simply ask who this conversation was with. Peter Damian 22:49, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

I have, out of good manners, replied to another of your numerous enquiries at different locations on this specific question. Asking it again will not change the reply. Victuallers 23:51, 17 December 2011 (UTC)


I wondered if you are aware of wikieducator, as this is a much more successful project. See also Wikiversity Finding a Feasible Future a proposed session at Wikimania 2012Leutha (talk) 13:44, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

No, I wasnt. Wikipedia has a lot of support and its good for reminding or extending your knowledge a bit but its not an education resource. Victuallers (talk) 13:50, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Election questions

"(Not sure, I might have missed a question)" - Yeah, Q8 & Q9 are both about volunteers, but you only have one numbered (#8) answer. -- KTC (talk) 12:38, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Bounty Hunter

Hi Roger. Is this a legitimate page? It's not written very professionally or even in proper English so I'm left wondering whether the page is meant to be humourous? Thanks, Thehelpfulone 22:53, 16 September 2012 (UTC) Well, thanks for the feedback THO. it was intended to have humourous overtones. However it was intended to suggest a way of offering work competitively to the community. I hadn't worked out a way forward but I knew that it would be received in good faith.

Tech Comm next week!

Hey Roger - as we didn't meet in the AGM at the end we're going to try and schedule a telecon for next week - if you fancy coming just pop you're availability on this doodle before Friday! If you can't make it we can liaise beforehand if you want to speak to agent items etc :) Katherine Bavage (WMUK) (talk) 09:53, 10 June 2013 (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)

Thank you for transferring
