Hi! Just wondering - how were you able to perform these blocks and deletions? According to the list you shouldn't have permission to do that! Is there something screwy going on, or am I missing something? --HappyDog 00:03, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi! I'm a steward, and saw a lot of spamdalism going on on this wiki through #wikimedia-swmt @ freenode, and didn't feel like just watching, so I made myself sysop and deleted the junk. Hope you don't mind. Face-smile.svg Jon Harald Søby 09:42, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
No - that's fine! I was just baffled as to how you were able to do that, as you weren't listed in the sysop list. Did you make yourself sysop and then desysop yourself? Or are you (and other people) able to perform this activity without any specific rights being granted here? More for future reference than anything else (so I know what to look for). Cheers --HappyDog 21:55, 31 July 2008 (UTC) sorry about the slow response... ;-)
Sorry about taking over your talk page, but to reply to HappyDog, they have to sysop and then desysop themselves in order to gain rights on wikis, as of now there isn't a globaladmin group (although I hear it's in the works). --Skizzerz 22:12, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
That's good - it means they'll show up in the logs which will hopefully leave people accountable and avoid any confusion. Cheers for answering --HappyDog 23:01, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Actually, the globaladmin group exists now. Previously (back in February), he would have had to sysop/desysop himself. However, now he just has admin rights on every wiki. Cbrown1023 talk 23:35, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
^^ yes was just about to mention that but my browser got stuck, but we have asked the stewards not to involve themselves in this wiki much since it has active sysops unless it needs CU or oversighting something , so you don't have much to worry about Happy, and I'm still wondering how this discussion took 17 months XD XD ..--Cometstyles 23:40, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
That probably doesn’t go for vandals like the one in question. Face-wink.svg Jon Harald Søby 00:27, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Whoa, this is a lot of messages for such a quiet wiki ... Weird. Jon Harald Søby 00:27, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

"I'm still wondering how this discussion took 17 months" - hehe. The original reply somehow managed to slip under my radar at the time, and the page just re-surfaced in my watchlist. Hadn't noticed that it was quite so long ago though! Ah well... :-) I'm also somewhat amazed at the flurry of activity it's generated though! --HappyDog 02:15, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Your commits[edit]

I'm not sure if you were aware of this or not, but you can link to an automated listing of all of your commits: Special:Code/MediaWiki/author/jhsoby. I'm not saying you're current method of listing each commit individually is wrong/bad or anything, I'm just opening up another option that you can use if you want :) --Skizzerz 00:10, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Yup, I am aware of it, but I like this way. It is highly illogical of me to continue doing it now though, but I am accustomed to it, and unless I get annoyed by it I’ll continue doing it for a while... Face-wink.svg Jon Harald Søby 22:15, 1 December 2008 (UTC)


Hi Jon. Please see some questions. Regards. --Marco Aurelio (talkmeta) 13:24, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for replying, though I think I was not clear enough so I left another couple of questions ;-) Regards. --Marco Aurelio (talkmeta) 16:02, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Re: Translate extension using Norwegian as base language[edit]

Yes, it's possible. T37489 was fixed many months ago. Nemo 12:20, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Thanks Nemo bis, that's great to hear! Jon Harald Søby (talk) 12:39, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
