If you expected a reply on another page and didn't get it, then please feel free to remind me. I've given up on my watchlist. You can also use the magic summoning tool if you remember to link my userpage in the same edit in which you sign the message.

Please add notes to the end of this page. If you notice the page size getting out of control (>100,000 bytes), then please tell me. I'll probably reply here unless you suggest another page for a reply. Thanks, WhatamIdoing

Please Help meEdit

Hello WhatamIdoing, I want to continue to administrate the Haitian wikipedia. I created a section to vote for me in the "Kafe". Could you help me by encouraging contributors to vote quickly?--Gilles2014 (talk) 18:03, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, Gilles2014. I noticed that your admin status had expired just a few days ago. I've pinged the recent active editors, and of course you still have my support. WhatamIdoing (talk) 20:17, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
Gilles2014, it's been 15 days. Have you contacted the Stewards yet, or would you like me to? WhatamIdoing (talk) 05:21, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve.

The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Thank you!

Brilliant Idea BarnstarEdit

  What a Brilliant Idea Barnstar
For adding a very useful sidebar at WP:RMT, hope this will help to reduce the unnecessary requests there. DBigXray 12:38, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

Thank you very much for the barnstar, DBigXray. Here's hoping that it works! WhatamIdoing (talk) 07:11, 28 November 2019 (UTC)


I don't NEED to do anything. But YOU need to mind your own damned business. --Calton | Talk 01:54, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

"brilliantly summarized"Edit

Hah, thanks for that :-)

It was interesting what you wrote about the different historical phases of WPMED. As a relative newbie (7 years?) I don't really "get" the historical context for some of the current drama, which is saddening to see ... Alexbrn (talk) 06:31, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
