Dear Milimetric (WMF), Welcome to!

Please, take a look at the following pages. They might prove useful to you as a newcomer here:

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and find this site useful documentation of the MediaWiki software.

Thanks, and regards, --Jasper Deng (talk) 02:11, 23 September 2012 (UTC)


I have replied to you on my talk page, in the future, you'll see "My new messages(1)" at the top left.

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding, I delete many userpages like this all the time. I had nothing against you and I never will have anything against you. Please take my apology.--Jasper Deng (talk) 04:26, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Question about analytics[edit]

Do you have time to a look at Talk:Analytics#Question. Thanks ;). --Tobias1984 (talk) 06:08, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Hey Tobias, sorry, no I can't help much with that question. I'm more on the engineering side of things and don't have great analytical knowledge yet. I would try the analytics-l mailing list maybe. DAndreescu

Ok I will try my luck :) Thanks. --Tobias1984 (talk) 20:39, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Talk:Code of conduct for technical spaces/Draft edit[edit]

Hi. I partially undid this edit of yours as I don't think changing others' comments was intentional. --MZMcBride (talk) 13:13, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Aah! Sorry about that, totally unintentional, thanks for fixing.


Dear Milimetric,

I have two questions. It would be nice, if you could answer them.

  1. ) Why gets the reportcard content deleted after two years (e.g. rc_very_active_editors_count.csv)?
  2. ) Why are there small inconsistencies when you compare the data of an older date at that date which this data at today's date (Github)?
2012/06/01	11776	3260	1175	987	764	669	491	468	323	281 (earlier)
2012/06/01 	11797 	3217 	1158 	1001 	755 	666 	485 	458 	319 	279 (now)

--Kopiersperre (talk) 07:43, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi Kopiersperre. Reportcard data is not deleted after two years, the data source is wikistats (for the example you asked about, see this page for data going back to 2008: The reason some graphs and datafiles in the reportcard don't have data going back further is because we migrated to this dashboard in 2012, and we didn't import too much historical data. As for the small inconsistencies, the reason is because pages that get deleted today have edits that sometimes happened a long time ago. The way we chose to report is to modify history and not count those edits after the page was deleted. There has been a lot of discussion about this, and I personally think it's important to see the data both ways. But the reportcard has to choose one way and stay consistent, and we think this is the most honest way to report the number of edits. Hope that helps :) Milimetric (WMF) (talk) 14:04, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Please provide feedback on suggested improvements to the Code of Conduct[edit]

Thanks to everyone who’s helped work on the Code of Conduct so far.

People have brought up issues they feel were missed when working on "Unacceptable behavior" and "Report a problem". Consultants have also suggested changes in these same sections.

These are important sections, so please take a look at the proposed changes. I apologize that this feedback arrived later than planned, but I think this will create a better document.

If you prefer to give your opinion privately, feedback via e-mail is welcome at

Please participate in discussion on updated "Marginalized and underrepresented groups" text[edit]

Thanks for participating in the earlier discussion on Talk:Code of Conduct/Draft#Marginalized and underrepresented groups. There was some support and some issues were raised. I've attempted to propose a better draft to address the issues.

Please participate at Talk:Code of Conduct/Draft#New proposed wording. Thanks. User:Mattflaschen-WMF via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 01:40, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
