Set up a new mailing list for es.wikibooks administrators
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hello. I kindly request you to please set up a new mailing list for es.wikibooks administrators following consensus at the local village pump (see URL field). The list is requested to be private.

We request it to reduce the level of miscommunication and unawareness that reigns in the administrator team which is problematic; as well for internal discussion among us. Currently there's no easy way to contact the administrators as a whole given that not all of us log-in everyday. As such, if we want to notify the admins of something of interest we have to post/email each admin separately which is overkill. We all agree that such a mailing list would be a great improvement.

We're also doing a great overhaul on the project to remove the great ammount of spam, vandalism, copyvios and innapropiate content that was accumulated during the times the project was nearly abandoned. Moreover we're planning to instal FlaggedRevs. Both issues requires for a efficient communication way which wiki pages can't offer at this time.

  • Requested name: "biblio-b-l" so it matches the pattern of the eswiki one. If it is not possible then please "wikibooks-es-admins"
  • Listadmin: myself, please.

Thank you.

They don't make mailing lists with the -l suffix any more.

That is correct, per the list standardisation, https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Standardization#Other_lists this list name would be wikibooks-es-admins.

Okay, can you provide me with a secondary list admin as a backup please?

I'm afraid there's no other volunteer for that right now -not that I'm aware of-. Thanks.

Hello. Is there any issue that blocks this request? I've just got questions today. Thanks.

None, sorry for the delay. I've created the list and sent you an email with the list admin password. I've set it to Confirm and approve for list membership, with private archives and hidden from the main list directory.

Please feel free to change the terse phrase https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/admin/wikibooks-es-admins/?VARHELP=general/description into a Spanish one.
