Welcome to my Talk Page. It's quite active, so you might want to look at the archives.

Account name[edit]

Hi - how are things? Just wondering if you wanted for the AFriedman account to be renamed to La comadreja - see Wikiversity:Changing username? -- Jtneill - Talk - c 11:06, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for asking. I'm about to respond on your Talk page. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 02:18, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Heh, now I should write your new name to my memmory.--Juan de Vojníkov 08:34, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
FYI, the way in which you've switched account names is a bit problematic - ideally we would have simply renamed your AFriedman account and then all your history, rights, etc. would have been automatically switched over. Now you have edits in two different accounts - I'm not sure about whether they can be merged, because a rename can only happen to an account name that doesn't exist. We could simply flag this La comadreja account and then you would have two custodian accounts, but with separate histories. Or we could rename La Comadreja to something else e.g., La Comadreja (temp) then rename AFriedman to La Comadreja and then you would at least have the bulk of your history in your main account, but not the recent La Comadreja. I'm a bit of a novice at account renames, so perhaps there are other better solutions. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 11:38, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
I would discourage having multiple custodian accounts. The latter suggestion is probably the best solution. --mikeu talk 13:24, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
I second that. If you'd rather not do the rename, please just request removal of the AFriedman tools on meta, and I or one of the other 'crats can add them to this account (though please make that request while logged in to the other account just for i-dotting and t-crossing purposes). --SB_Johnny talk 16:55, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. I just requested removal of my custodian tools on meta. As long as the custodian tools are on the new account, I think it's less serious that the old edits are not. The formal rename was made official on Wikipedia. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 01:26, 5 September 2010 (UTC)


Hi, you were noticed that it is a copyright violation, because of some images. Could you offer a source of those images or replace them by images from Wikimedia Commons?

Note that compilations which include WMF logos, maybe used as PD, with exclusion of those logos. There is a special template for this: commons:Template:Copyright by Wikimedia. This kind of file can be deployed on WMF projects, but it is not fully free. So I recommend to remove from presentations all non free images and upload it to Commons without them. If the image is important and it is not freely available, you can put there a box and write "there that there was a copyrighted image of…". I did something same with my presentation of a wikiversity: commons:File:Konference09-012.pdf (its indicated there, where I hide non free media). I hope, that you will come up with more such presentations in the future!--Juan de Vojníkov 09:10, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

How do you download the file's several pages to edit them as one file? My hard drive has crashed since I gave the talk, and the copy on Wikiversity is the one I can most easily access. I don't think the nonfree images are critical to content. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 03:19, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, I click on the file. It opens in PDF readable window and I can save it to hard disk. Or you can click right button on mouse and there should be something like Save as...

Well nonfree images are problem. It is a license violation and it is a law violation. So if you will not fix it, the presentation will be deleted.--Juan de Vojníkov 07:13, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I've uploaded a new version of the file, which does not have images. You can't see the changes yet, but when you click on the new version for download, you will see that there are no images. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 01:53, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Thank you.--Juan de Vojníkov 14:37, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Graeme's Book Update[edit]

Hi Anne I am still working on my latest version of the Memory Mechanics book, Molly has been helping me edit it for readability and we have rewritten the first 8 chapters. I just thought I would drop you a line to say I haven't forgotten you.

--Graeme E. Smith 01:34, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Best wishes! Who is Molly? --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 03:11, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Wikiversity Signpost[edit]

I'm trying to start up a Wikiversity equivalent of the Wikipedia Signpost. Someone suggested that I ask you if you have any ideas or if you would like to write an article yourself. Thanks, Rock drum (talkcontribs) 11:48, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi Rock drum, Very interesting. How is the effort going? BTW, I recently presented about Wikiversity in the New York City conference last weekend. We mentioned the idea of someone writing an article about Wikiversity's efforts in the Wikipedia signpost, as a way of increasing awareness of this project. What do you think of this idea? Have you been involved with the Wikipedia signpost at all? BTW, are you also interested in the discussion about how research on Wikiversity should be displayed and coordinated? PS I like your Username a lot. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 01:56, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

m:Steward requests/Permissions#AFriedman@en.wikiversity[edit]

I've left a note for you regarding your request. Please review and reply when you have an opportunity. Thank you. Kylu 14:52, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 14:09, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Sitenotice id[edit]

Note that you'll also need to bump this page in order for changes to MediaWiki:Sitenotice to display to users. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 11:14, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

James, I'm not positive, but I think that there has been a change to MediaWiki where we no longer need to do that. [1] --mikeu talk 16:53, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

What do you mean by "bump"? Increase the number on the page by 1? Also, my request for removal of custodian tools was successful and so I won't be able to bump the page until the tools are transferred to my new account. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 14:10, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Ah, sorry. That's YesY Done now. Welcome back :-). --SB_Johnny talk 14:17, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I've made a couple changes to the main page just now, from my new account. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 15:30, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Your edit to Cetegory:18th_Century_European_History[edit]

[2]. As you can see by going to the page, backing up to the redirect, and looking for what links there, this was merely a category created with a mispelling, by me, which is why I tagged it for speedy deletion, and I was the only "contributor." It should simply have been deleted, I'd have thought. Is there some reason that you removed the speedy tag? Would you consider simply deleting this page that I created in error? Thanks. --Abd 19:29, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

It's a plausible typo to make and could be made again, which is why I initially changed the page to a redirect. Deleting the page isn't a big deal and I've just done that. --La comadreja formerly AFriedman RESEARCH (talk) 03:22, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

A wave from afar[edit]

I hope all is well with you, la c. Just ran into a lot of great uni-liaisons at a 'wiki in higher ed' conference in Boston; you would have loved it! SJ+> 21:16, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

You are invited to register for the Wikiversity Assembly[edit]

  • The Wikiversity:Assembly has been established as a technique for developing reports on topics of import for Wikiversity administration. The Assembly is not a decision-making body, per se. Rather, it is designed to create or discover or estimate consensus, through focused, facilitated, thorough deliberation. Assembly reports may be referenced in regular Wikiversity discussions, but will not directly control outcomes. Where full consensus is not found, minority reports may be issued.
  • I invite you to register for the Wikiversity:Assembly by adding your user name to the Wikiversity:Delegable proxy/Table.
  • Registering for the Assembly creates no specific obligation, but does consent to direct communication as the Assembly may determine is appropriate. You may opt out of such direct communication by adding "no messages" to the Table when you register, in the user comment field, but it is unlikely that the default (communication allowed) will create burdensome traffic for you.

You are invited to name a proxy[edit]

  • When you register for the Assembly, you may optionally designate a "proxy."
  • I suggest that you nominate, as a proxy, the user whom you most trust to participate positively in a Wikiversity discussion if you are unable to participate yourself. The proxy will not be voting for you in any process. Rather, the proxy will be considered to loosely represent you, as a means of estimating probable large-scale consensus based on small-scale participation, in the event that you do not personally participate.
  • If you name a proxy, you will be consenting to direct communication with you by that proxy. If a named proxy accepts the proxy, you become, as long as you maintain the nomination (you may change it at any time), the "client" of the proxy, and by accepting, a proxy has consented to direct communication from the client.


I'm inviting all relatively inactive custodians to register for the Assembly, and to name a proxy as described. This is because you who have been and remain custodians have yourselves been trusted by the community, and your proxy choice, if you name one, may carry some reasonable weight, due to your experience. You may, of course, participate directly, whether you do or do not name a proxy. Thanks for considering this. --Abd 01:41, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

PLE feedback[edit]

Hello, I think I listed you here, perhaps you could share your experiences since then with PLEs, e.g. here? Thanks, ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat + 05:45, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Your admin status[edit]

Hello. I'm a steward. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc.) was adopted by community consensus recently. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.   You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for 2 years) on enwikiversity, where you are an administrator. Since that wiki does not have its own administrators' rights review process, the global one applies.   If you want to keep your rights, you should inform the community of the wiki about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your rights, please contact the stewards at m:Stewards' noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish to continue to maintain the rights, and demonstrate a continued requirement to maintain these rights.   We stewards will evaluate the responses. If there is no response at all after approximately one month, we will proceed to remove your administrative rights. In cases of doubt, we will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review. If you have any questions, please contact us on m:Stewards' noticeboard.   Best regards, Rschen7754 20:58, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
