Hi Gopher! Nice to see you around here. Cheers Tempodivalse 13:49, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks :)

Thanks for all your hard work... I've noticed you out and about today! -- Philippe 17:55, 25 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks! This looks like an interesting project, I'll try to become more involved here and help out where I can. :-) Cheers, Tempodivalse 18:00, 25 September 2009 (UTC)


Thank you for your very kind offer to serve as an administrator for this wiki. I'm creating new administrators today, and you're in the group that I'm giving the administrator tools to. I encourage you to use them rarely, and only after consideration. I prefer that pages be retained if there's any doubt as to their legitimacy. Please assume good faith on a massive scale. If you come across something questionable, please feel free to contact me, I'm almost always online. Please feel free to move proposals to the "Proposal:" namespace, but leave the redirect, for a while, so that if someone has put a link in their favorites, they can find their proposal.

With that said, also feel free to use the block button for inappropriate contributions (spammers should be blocked on sight) and anyone who is blatantly disruptive. The block template at {{blocked}} gives them instructions to contact me if it's an incorrect block. I will keep an eye on your use of the tools the first several days so that we both know that you're using them in the way that's calibrated with the other administrators. Please understand that if I contact you about an action, it's done with my thanks for your volunteerism.

Welcome, and please - again - accept my sincere thanks. -- Philippe 00:20, 26 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, Philippe! Much appreciated. I'll make sure to put the tools to good use. :-) Cheers. Tempodivalse 00:33, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Next Steps

Next steps!
It's time to answer some questions! Would you check out the list of questions that were submitted by the community and others and try to answer some? -- Philippe 02:14, 22 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]


Hey, just wanted to call your attention to User_talk:PauloHelene#deleted_proposal - I've blocked him, but since you're tangentally involved (having deleted the proposal), I wanted you to be aware. Thanks for your help! -- Philippe 07:38, 12 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Noted. Sorry I didn't respond earlier, I somehow didn't notice the "You have new messages" bar. Thanks, Tempodivalse [talk] 00:34, 14 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]


Can you send me a copy of my volunteer submission form please --DerekvG 22:54, 13 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry, but I'm afraid I don't completely understand what you're asking. What volunteer submission forms? Perhaps you should contact User:Philippe with this, as he's in charge of this project. He might be of more assistance than I, as I don't know my way around this project very well. Tempodivalse [talk] 00:39, 14 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]


If you want, I'll be happy to show you how to use it. :) -- Philippe 01:36, 25 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Eh, it's probably not necessary, considering how very rarely I need it. Perhaps sometime later. Thanks though. Tempodivalse [talk] 02:40, 25 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for updating all those pages with the Wikipedia -> Wikimedia correction. It may seem like a little thing (although I know it took work), but it makes a big difference. Really appreciate it! --Eekim 17:13, 25 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

You're welcome. It wasn't very hard actually, only took a few minutes. Tempodivalse [talk] 18:56, 25 November 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Next steps (again)

Hi Tempodivalse,

Thanks for all of your contributions to the strategy wiki to date! The strategic planning process wouldn't be where it is today without all of your help. Your early and frequent support was invaluable, and I want you to know how much of a difference that you made. I hope you'll continue to work towards finishing the plan...

We're about to move into the third and final phase of the process, and in many ways, this will be the most challenging. I'm hoping you will continue to be an active presence in shaping the movement's five year strategic plan.

Here are some concrete suggestions as to how you can help moving forward:

  • Add your name to Strategic Planning:Hosts. This just formalizes what I think has been true all along; that you care about this process, and that you're doing what you can to help it along moving forward.
  • Help organize and improve this wiki! Starting next week (January 18, 2010), we're going to be encouraging many more people to come participate, and we want to make sure this wiki is as presentable as possible. A comprehensive list of things to do is at Strategic Planning:To-do list.
  • Invite people to participate! Encourage volunteers to discuss Task force/Recommendations.
  • Finally, we need to clearly describe what this final phase is going to look like. In particular, we could use feedback and discussion on Strategic Planning:Decision-Making.

Let me know what you think! Many, many thanks! ~Philippe 00:52, 12 January 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Re: Welcome

Thanks for the welcome :) I'm very curious about what do you guys do here, maybe when I get some free time I'll see those link in the welcome. Regards :) Manuelt15 01:29, 9 July 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you

Thank you for welcoming. This is indeed an active platform and will be glad use it when I can- George Haimbiri

You're welcome! If I can help you, please don't hesitate to ask me. Tempodivalse [talk] 15:15, 15 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]


Hey Tempo... since there was no objection in a week, I +crat'd you. documented here. ~Philippe (WMF) 06:48, 19 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you, Philippe! :-) Tempodivalse [talk] 19:59, 19 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Sticky Notes

I hope you don't mind, I quoted your comment on the discussion page. I like it to be clear to each new reader of Sticky NOtes that others really do agree: this proposal is important. Anyway, I hope to keep in touch.-Tesseract2(talk)

I see it; thanks! (Although my first comment, I would think, has more pertinent material, maybe it would make sense to quote it as well.) I'll try to get this proposal publicised in a couple more places. Tempodivalse [talk] 23:22, 27 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
