Auke de Sloper

Hjoed is Auke Visser better bekind as Auke de Sloper ferstoarn. Is dizze man in artikel op de Fryske Wikipedy wurdich? Sjoch it berjocht op de webside fan Omrop Fryslân, Auke de Sloper ferstoarn 17-01-2014 Wikiice (talk) 17 jan 2014, 12.35 (CET)

Auke de sloper is in markant figuer út de stêd. Hy heart thús yn de kategory, Roosje Cohen, Slappe Douwe dêr't wy gjin artikels oer hawwe, mar dat om my likegoed wol kinnen hie. --Geoffrey (talk) 17 jan 2014, 22.10 (CET)

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014

On January 21 2014 the MediaWiki extension Universal Language Selector (ULS) was disabled on this wiki. A new preference was added for logged-in users to turn on ULS. This was done to prevent slow loading of pages due to ULS webfonts, a behaviour that had been observed by the Wikimedia Technical Operations team on some wikis.

We are now ready to enable ULS again. The temporary preference to enable ULS will be removed. A new checkbox has been added to the Language Panel to enable/disable font delivery. This will be unchecked by default for this wiki, but can be selected at any time by the users to enable webfonts. This is an interim solution while we improve the feature of webfonts delivery.

You can read the announcement and the development plan for more information. Apologies for writing this message only in English. Thank you. Runa

Changes to the default site typography coming soon

This week, the typography on Wikimedia sites will be updated for all readers and editors who use the default "Vector" skin. This change will involve new serif fonts for some headings, small tweaks to body content fonts, text size, text color, and spacing between elements. The schedule is:

  • April 1st: non-Wikipedia projects will see this change live
  • April 3rd: Wikipedias will see this change live

This change is very similar to the "Typography Update" Beta Feature that has been available on Wikimedia projects since November 2013. After several rounds of testing and with feedback from the community, this Beta Feature will be disabled and successful aspects enabled in the default site appearance. Users who are logged in may still choose to use another skin, or alter their personal CSS, if they prefer a different appearance. Local common CSS styles will also apply as normal, for issues with local styles and scripts that impact all users.

For more information:

No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto

There is a current discussion on German Wikipedia on a decision of Asaf Bartov, Head of WMF Grants and Global South Partnerships, Wikimedia Foundation, who rejected a request for funding a proposal from wikipedians from eowiki one year ago with the explanation the existence, cultivation, and growth of the Esperanto Wikipedia does not advance our educational mission. No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto. On meta there has also started a discussion about that decision. --Holder (talk) 5 maaie 2014, 11.58 (CEST)

Media Viewer

Greetings, my apologies for writing in English.

I wanted to let you know that Media Viewer will be released to this wiki in the coming weeks. Media Viewer allows readers of Wikimedia projects to have an enhanced view of files without having to visit the file page, but with more detail than a thumbnail. You can try Media Viewer out now by turning it on in your Beta Features. If you do not enjoy Media Viewer or if it interferes with your work after it is turned on you will be able to disable Media Viewer as well in your preferences. I invite you to share what you think about Media Viewer and how it can be made better in the future.

Thank you for your time. - Keegan (WMF) 23 maaie 2014, 23.29 (CEST)

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki

Media Viewer lets you see images in larger size

Greetings— and sorry for writing in English, please translate if it will help your community,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Multimedia team is happy to announce that Media Viewer was just released on this site today.

Media Viewer displays images in larger size when you click on their thumbnails, to provide a better viewing experience. Users can now view images faster and more clearly, without having to jump to separate pages — and its user interface is more intuitive, offering easy access to full-resolution images and information, with links to the file repository for editing. The tool has been tested extensively across all Wikimedia wikis over the past six months as a Beta Feature and has been released to the largest Wikipedias, all language Wikisources, and the English Wikivoyage already.

If you do not like this feature, you can easily turn it off by clicking on "Disable Media Viewer" at the bottom of the screen, pulling up the information panel (or in your your preferences) whether you have an account or not. Learn more in this Media Viewer Help page.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about Media Viewer. You are invited to share your feedback in this discussion on in any language, to help improve this feature. You are also welcome to take this quick survey in English, en français, o español.

We hope you enjoy Media Viewer. Many thanks to all the community members who helped make it possible. - Fabrice Florin (WMF) (talk) 19 jun 2014, 23.54 (CEST)

VisualEditor global newsletter—June 2014

This is a one-time mailing to projects that may need this information. Future newsletters will be available as opt-in only. To receive future newsletters (about one per month), please add your page to the subscribers' list at m:VisualEditor/Newsletter. You're welcome to translate to your language.

The character formatting menu

Did you know?

The character formatting menu, or "Style text" menu lets you set bold, italic, and other text styles. "Clear formatting" removes all text styles and removes links to other pages.

Do you think that clear formatting should remove links? Are there changes you would like to see for this menu? Share your opinion at

The user guide has information about how to use VisualEditor.

The VisualEditor team is mostly working to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find on weekly updates detailing recent work.

  • They have moved the "Fluchtoetsen" link out of the "Page options" menu, into the "Help" menu. Within dialog boxes, buttons are now more accessible (via the Tab key) from the keyboard.
  • You can now see the target of the link when you click on it, without having to open the inspector.
  • The team also expanded TemplateData: You can now add a parameter type  "date" for dates and times in the ISO 8601 format, and  "boolean" for values which are true or false. Also, templates that redirect to other templates (like {{citeweb}}{{cite web}}) now get the TemplateData of their target (bug 50964). You can test TemplateData by editing mw:Template:Sandbox/doc.
  • Category: and File: pages now display their contents correctly after saving an edit (bug 65349, bug 64239)
  • They have also improved reference editing: You should no longer be able to add empty citations with VisualEditor (bug 64715), as with references. When you edit a reference, you can now empty it and click the "use an existing reference" button to replace it with another reference instead. 
  • It is now possible to edit inline images with VisualEditor. Remember that inline images cannot display captions, so existing captions get removed. Many other bugs related to images were also fixed.
  • You can now add and edit {{DISPLAYTITLE}} and __DISAMBIG__ in the "Page options" menu, rounding out the full set of page options currently planned.
  • The tool to insert special characters is now wider and simpler.

Looking ahead

The VisualEditor team has posted a draft of their goals for the next fiscal year. You can read them and suggest changes on

The team posts details about planned work on VisualEditor's roadmap. You will soon be able to drag-and-drop text as well as images. If you drag an image to a new place, it won't let you place it in the middle of a paragraph. All dialog boxes and windows will be simplified based on user testing and feedback. The VisualEditor team plans to add autofill features for citations. Your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted. Support for upright image sizes is being developed. The designers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments and adding rows and columns to tables.

Supporting your wiki

Please read VisualEditor/Citation tool for information on configuring the new citation template menu, labeled "Cite". This menu will not appear unless it has been configured on your wiki.

If you speak a language other than English, we need your help with translating the user guide. The guide is out of date or incomplete for many languages, and what's on your wiki may not be the most recent translation. Please contact us if you need help getting started with translation work on

VisualEditor can be made available to most non-Wikipedia projects. If your community would like to test VisualEditor, please contact product manager James Forrester or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.

Please share your questions, suggestions, or problems by posting a note at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Saturday, 19 July 2014 at 21:00 UTC (daytime for the Americas and Pacific Islands) or on Thursday, 14 August 2014 at 9:00 UTC (daytime for Europe, Middle East, Asia).

Wat zullen ze tijdens Wikimania in Londen zeggen over Wikipedy?

Over drie weken komen Wikimedianen uit meer dan zestig landen bij elkaar in Londen. Gedurende drie dagen wisselen ze verhalen uit over wat er speelt op hun wiki project. Na Wikimania vliegen ze geïnspireerd terug naar huis, gevoed met verhalen uit de hele wereld. Welk verhaal over Wikipedy zal de wereld overgaan?
Vanuit Nederland bezoeken zeker 16 mensen Wikimania. Met welk verhaal zullen zij naar Londen gaan? Schrijf mee aan Wikipedy:Status van de wiki juli-augustus 2014 en help mee de tien punten op te sommen die Wikipedy nu tot een geweldig, grandioos, voortreffelijk project hebben gemaakt. Leef je uit en benoem wat het voor jou fantastisch maakt om mee te werken aan Wikipedy.
Nadat er tenminste tien punten zijn opgesomd die goed gaan met Wikipedy kan op Wikipedy oerlis:Status van de wiki juli-augustus 2014 overlegd worden over wat er minder goed gaat. Dan kan eventueel na die discussie een verbeterpunt toegevoegd worden aan de tien positieve punten op Wikipedy:Status van de wiki juli-augustus 2014.
Dank je wel! In Nederland is het nu zomer en zouden we geneigd zijn dit een zomerrapport te noemen. Het is nu op het zuidelijk halfrond winter en vandaar de aanduiding van de maanden in plaats van het jaargetijde. Ad Huikeshoven (talk) 19 jul 2014, 14.57 (CEST)

Updates related to VisualEditor

Please help translate this message in your language. Thanks :)

Hi, everybody. This is a reminder that we invite you to discuss VisualEditor's recent development and plans ahead during the next office hours with James Forrester (Product Manager):

If you are not able to attend but have a question for James, you can leave your question at or on my talk page by the day before, and I will try to get a response. We plan to continue these monthly sessions as long as there is community interest, and to announce them through the VisualEditor global newsletter as well (please subscribe your talk page there to get the latest news about the software).

Most of the VisualEditor team will be at Wikimania in London in August! You'll be able to meet the developers during the Hackaton or at the following sessions:

WMF community liaisons will share a booth with community advocates at the Community Village and look forward to talking to you there. Thanks for your attention! --User:Elitre (WMF) 31 jul 2014, 18.02 (CEST)

VisualEditor global newsletter—July and August 2014


The VisualEditor team is currently working mostly to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find on weekly updates detailing recent work.

Screenshot of VisualEditor's link tool
Dialog boxes in VisualEditor have been re-designed to use action words instead of icons. This has increased the number of items that need to be translated. The user guide is also being updated.

The biggest visible change since the last newsletter was to the dialog boxes. The design for each dialog box and window was simplified. The most commonly needed buttons are now at the top. Based on user feedback, the buttons are now labeled with simple words (like "Cancel" or "Done") instead of potentially confusing icons (like "<" or "X"). Many of the buttons to edit links, images, and other items now also show the linked page, image name, or other useful information when you click on them.

  • Hidden HTML comments (notes visible to editors, but not to readers) can now be read, edited, inserted, and removed. A small icon (a white exclamation mark on a dot) marks the location of each comments. You can click on the icon to see the comment.
  • You can now drag and drop text and templates as well as images. A new placement line makes it much easier to see where you are dropping the item. Images can no longer be dropped into the middle of paragraphs.
  • All references and footnotes (<ref> tags) are now made through the "Cite" menu, including the "Referinsje" (manual formatting) footnotes and the ability to re-use an existing citation, both of which were previously accessible only through the "Ynfoegje" menu. The "<visualeditor-dialogbutton-referencelist-tooltip>" is still added via the "Ynfoegje" menu.
  • When you add an image or other media file, you are now prompted to add an image caption immediately. You can also replace an image whilst keeping the original caption and other settings.
  • All tablet users visiting the mobile web version of Wikipedias will be able to opt-in to a version of VisualEditor from 14 August. You can test the new tool by choosing the beta version of the mobile view in the Settings menu.
  • The link tool has a new "Open" button that will open a linked page in another tab so you can make sure a link is the right one.
  • The "Cancel" button in the toolbar has been removed based on user testing. To cancel any edit, you can leave the page by clicking the Read tab, the back button in your browser, or closing the browser window without saving your changes.

Looking ahead

The team posts details about planned work on the VisualEditor roadmap. The VisualEditor team plans to add auto-fill features for citations soon. Your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted. Support for upright image sizes is being developed. The designers are also working on support for adding rows and columns to tables. Work to support Internet Explorer is ongoing.

Feedback opportunities

The Editing team will be making two presentations this weekend at Wikimania in London. The first is with product manager James Forrester and developer Trevor Parscal on Saturday at 16:30. The second is with developers Roan Kattouw and Trevor Parscal on Sunday at 12:30. There is a VisualEditor Translation Sprint going on during Wikimania; whether you're in London or not, any contributions are welcome!

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on

Process ideas for software development

’’My apologies for writing in English.’’


I am notifying you that a brainstorming session has been started on Meta to help the Wikimedia Foundation increase and better affect community participation in software development across all wiki projects. Basically, how can you be more involved in helping to create features on Wikimedia projects? We are inviting all interested users to voice their ideas on how communities can be more involved and informed in the product development process at the Wikimedia Foundation. It would be very appreciated if you could translate this message to help inform your local communities as well.

I and the rest of my team welcome you to participate. We hope to see you on Meta.

Waarmee kan Vereniging Wikimedia Nederland de bewerkers van Wikipedy in het jaar 2015 helpen?


Dit Nederlandstalige bericht is geplaatst in De Kroeg of soortgelijke pagina op de projecten Wikipedia, WikiWoordenboek, Wikibooks, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikispecies, Wikiversity, Wikivoyage, Wikinews, Commons, Wikidata, Outreach in de bestaande taalversies Nederlands, Fries, Limburgs, Nedersaksisch en Zeeuws van deze projecten. Dit bericht is in de eerste plaats bedoeld voor mensen die in Nederland wonen. Voel je vrij om dit Nederlandstalige bericht te vertalen in het Fries, Limburgs, Nedersaksisch of Zeeuws.

De Vereniging Wikimedia Nederland ondersteunt onder andere het werk van de vrijwilligers die op Wikipedia of een van de zusterprojecten daarvan actief zijn.

Heb jij ideeën over wat Wikimedia Nederland wel of niet zou moeten doen?
Wil jij invloed uitoefenen op wat Wikimedia Nederland wel of niet doet en waar Wikimedia Nederland geld aan uit geeft?

De eerste prioriteit van de Vereniging Wikimedia Nederland (WMNL) is het ondersteunen van de bewerkers van Wikipedia en zusterprojecten in Nederland. WMNL is een vereniging die juridisch onafhankelijk is van de Wikimedia Foundation. Door ruimhartige financiële steun van de Wikimedia Foundation kan WMNL heel wat doen met een kantoorruimte in Utrecht waar vijf mensen werken om de gemeenschap van leden en vrijwilligers te ondersteunen. Over drie weken op zaterdag 20 september 2014 gaat de Algemene Ledenvergadering (ALV) het jaarplan 2015 vaststellen. Het jaarplan is mede gebaseerd op het in het jaar 2012 vastgestelde meerjarenplan 2013-2015. Graag zou ik willen weten aan wat voor ondersteuning jullie eventueel behoefte hebben. De verkregen feedback tot nu toe is 'aandacht geven aan zusterprojecten'. Hieronder kun je lezen wat in het meerjarenplan 2013-2015 staat over 'community' met doelen en activiteiten.

COMMUNITY: ondersteunen en mobiliseren van vrijwilligers
De missie van Wikimedia Nederland kan alleen gerealiseerd worden wanneer mensen zich actief inzetten om kennis vrij beschikbaar te maken via Wikipedia en andere Wikimedia-projecten en activiteiten. Het doel voor de komende jaren: meer actieve bewerkers en vrijwilligers die effectief worden ondersteund vanuit de Vereniging. Het creëren van mogelijkheden voor vrijwilligers en bewerkers om actief te zijn en het bieden van ondersteuning aan hun inzet is de komende jaren een kerntaak van Wikimedia Nederland, evenals het motiveren en activeren van nieuwe vrijwilligersgroepen. Het moet breed bekend zijn dat Wikipedia een vrijwilligersproject is, waar iedereen aan mag meewerken en in onze outreach activiteiten gaan we met name daar de nadruk op leggen.

Vrijwilligers en bewerkers kunnen zowel online als offline rekenen op de ondersteuning van Wikimedia Nederland bij hun activiteiten: bij het creëren van content, de contacten met (potentiële) partnerorganisaties en het op andere manieren bevorderen van vrije kennis. De vereniging werkt hieraan door aansluiting te zoeken op individuele competenties, voorkeuren en wensen. Vraaggericht en individueel wordt een breed scala van mogelijkheden en faciliteiten aangeboden. Dit gebeurt mede door het bieden van een sociale infrastructuur waarbinnen de vrijwilligers zich kunnen ontplooien en kunnen samenwerken om tot resultaten te komen.


  1. De instroom van vrijwilligers en bewerkers is vergroot: nog meer mensen zijn zelf actief in Wikipedia of andere activiteiten en projecten
  2. Vrijwilligers en bewerkers krijgen van Wikimedia Nederland effectieve, doelgerichte steun die hen in staat stelt optimaal en met plezier actief te zijn en te blijven;
  3. De communicatie met vrijwilligers en bewerkers loopt via korte en informele lijnen
  4. De vrijwilligers en bewerkers voelen zich gewaardeerd om hun betrokkenheid en voelen zich niet geremd om initiatief te tonen


  • 1.1 Organiseren van laagdrempelige, aansprekende publieksevenementen, projecten en activiteiten die de actieve deelname van geïnteresseerden stimuleren en mogelijk maken
  • 1.2 Contact en samenwerking zoeken met andere vrijwilligersorganisaties om hun achterban te interesseren en mobiliseren voor Wikimedia-projecten en activiteiten
  • 1.3 Opzetten van introductie-cursussen voor potentiële Wikipedia-bewerkers en het trainen van trainers voor deze cursussen
  • 2.1 Regelmatig bij bewerkers en vrijwilligers nagaan welke soort en vorm van ondersteuning zij nodig hebben
  • 2.2 Deelname van vrijwilligers en bewerkers aan cursussen, congressen en workshops mogelijk maken
  • 2.3 Op uitleenbasis beschikbaar stellen van apparatuur aan vrijwilligers en bewerkers
  • 2.4 Vrijwilligers en bewerkers desgevraagd ondersteuning bieden door medewerkers
  • 2.5 Beschikbaar stellen van fondsen voor (kleine) projecten en activiteiten van vrijwilligers en bewerkers
  • 3.1 Aanbieden van duidelijke kanalen voor directe communicatie tussen Vereniging en alle vrijwilligers c.q. optimaliseren van bestaande kanalen
  • 4.1 Vrijwilligers en bewerkers nader bij vereniging betrekken als ‘specialisten’, in adviesgroepen etc.
  • 4.2 Organiseren van kleinschalige ‘community events’ zoals Wiki-zaterdag, Wiki meets….

Jullie zijn allemaal van harte welkom tijdens de ALV op zaterdag 20 september 2014 om je stem te laten horen. Je kunt nu al je ideeën kwijt en je reactie geven op onderstaande vragen, zeker voor hen die niet naar de ALV van WMNL willen of kunnen komen. Dit bericht is op persoonlijke titel gepost door Dedalus (talk) 30 aug 2014, 11.24 (CEST). Voor de leesbaarheid volgen de vragen na de ondertekening.

Welke activiteiten zou Wikimedia Nederland met voorrang moeten oppakken?
  • ...
Waarmee zou Wikimedia Nederland de bewerkers van Wikipedy nog meer kunnen helpen?

Uitnodiging prijsuitreiking Wiki Loves Earth in Naturalis

Op zondag 5 oktober organiseert Wikimedia Nederland in samenwerking met Naturalis een schrijfworkshop voor mensen die willen leren hoe je artikelen kan bewerken en schrijven op Wikipedia, uiteraard in thema van de Nederlandse natuur. De middag combineert toegang tot de bibliotheek en de naslagwerken van Naturalis met een ontspannen bezoekje aan het museum: een uitgelezen kans om eens dieper in de materie te duiken. Zowel ervaren als onervaren schrijvers voor de encyclopedie worden van harte welkom geheten. De middag wordt afgesloten met een gezamenlijk drankje. Voor inschrijvingen bezoek je ons formulier.

Dezelfde middag, aansluitend op de schrijfworkshop, is de prijsuitreiking van het Nederlandse onderdeel van de fotowedstrijd Wiki Loves Earth. Voorafgaand is een museumbezoek mogelijk en achteraf praten we graag na onder het genot van een drankje. Schrijf je voor de prijsuitreiking in via het dit formulier. Als je je reeds hebt ingeschreven voor de schrijfworkshop, dan is opnieuw inschrijven niet nodig.

Meer informatie over beide evenementen vind je uiteraard op onze website.

Triemmen oanbieden, Upload Wizard?

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki there is little community activity around uploads: less than 50 "Wiskje" actions in "Ofbyld" last year.

I guess this wiki doesn't have the interest or energies to maintain complex templates and metadata, especially for EDP files. I propose to

so that no new work is needed on this wiki and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons.

All this will be done around 2014-09-30.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove this wiki from the list.
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.
  3. In all cases, existing files will not be affected, but everyone is welcome to join m:File metadata cleanup drive. The goal is to give better credit to the authors who provided us their works.

Tenei eltsenien dy't hjir in plaatsje heechlade wol fuort mar trochstjoere nei Commons - want dêr komt dit foarstel op del - betsjut it ein fan it lokale heechlaadbelied op fy:wiki en dêr bin ik net foar, it is op Commons al té faak mis gien mei plaatsjes (sjoch bygelyks hjir). My liket dat jin de kar hawwe moatte. It is my boppedat net dúdlik werom allinnich behearders noch plaatsjes heechlade meie soene. Wat my oanbelanget wurdt dizze wiki dus foar de tritichste fan de hjirboppe neamde list ôfhelle. Wutsje 19 sep 2014, 01.58 (CEST)
Ik bin ek foar frijheid fan heechladen foar eltsenien. Drewes (talk) 22 sep 2014, 16.09 (CEST)
Ik haw dizze wiki fan dy list helle (link). Wutsje 1 okt 2014, 01.14 (CEST)

Ieneach fan 'e Esk has removed from the list on September 22. Thanks for the reply, Nemo bis (talk) 2 okt 2014, 08.15 (CEST)

Meta RfCs on two new global groups

Hello all,

There are currently requests for comment open on meta to create two new global groups. The first is a group for members of the OTRS permissions queue, which would grant them autopatrolled rights on all wikis except those who opt-out. That proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Creation of a global OTRS-permissions user group. The second is a group for Wikimedia Commons admins and OTRS agents to view deleted file pages through the 'viewdeletedfile' right on all wikis except those who opt-out. The second proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Global file deletion review.

We would like to hear what you think on both proposals. Both are in English; if you wanted to translate them into your native language that would also be appreciated.

It is possible for individual projects to opt-out, so that users in those groups do not have any additional rights on those projects. To do this please start a local discussion, and if there is consensus you can request to opt-out of either or both at m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Thanks and regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 26 okt 2014, 19.04 (CET)

Global AbuseFilter


AbuseFilter is a MediaWiki extension used to detect likely abusive behavior patterns, like pattern vandalism and spam. In 2013, Global AbuseFilters were enabled on a limited set of wikis including Meta-Wiki,, Wikispecies and (in early 2014) all the "small wikis". Recently, global abuse filters were enabled on "medium sized wikis" as well. These filters are currently managed by stewards on Meta-Wiki and have shown to be very effective in preventing mass spam attacks across Wikimedia projects. However, there is currently no policy on how the global AbuseFilters will be managed although there are proposals. There is an ongoing request for comment on policy governing the use of the global AbuseFilters. In the meantime, specific wikis can opt out of using the global AbuseFilter. These wikis can simply add a request to this list on Meta-Wiki. More details can be found on this page at Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.
