Gnom1 added a comment to T215728: Suppress a Wikidata value in a Wikipedia article that uses a 'Wikidata by default' infobox _without overwriting it_ in the article Wikitext.

I'm sorry since I don't know how infoboxes technically work, I can't do that. So we do have a bug here that requires fixing, right?

Well – how can I suppress the Wikidata value for "screenshot" in the article :de:Signal (Messenger) without having to overwrite it with a non-breaking space?

Just to make sure: I am looking for a solution that works not for the infobox template in general, but only in one specific Wikipedia article.

Hi, I am a lawyer specialising in media and IT law, and pretty much all my work at the moment is GDPR-related. Happy to help.

Gnom1 added a comment to T154500: Changes made using NWE are blocked by Translate extension but copied into OWE they're accepted.

The error message I'm getting in this scenario reads, "Multiple translation unit markers for one translation unit. Translation unit text: [...]". Making the same edit in OWE also works fine. Or is this a different bug?

Sorry, but it appears to me that the entire wikipedia.org page is shown in English again, except for the title above the puzzle globe ("Wikipedia The free encyclopedia", which is shown in German to me).

Gnom1 added a comment to T156029: Select location for Asia Cache DC.

The goal is to have Wikipedia's servers run on renewable energy. It's as simple as that. In Europe, this is a no-brainer, while I understand that it is not so much in the U.S. But Google, for example, has announced that it will reach this goal in 2017. Apple has been doing this since forever. And yes, we're not as big as these companies, but we share the same responsibility of saving this planet for our grandchildren. Buying carbon offsets is nonsense by the way, we have gone back and forth on this with help from Greenpeace before. And despite my continuous efforts in this regard, it seems that your team is planning to open yet another datacenter running on conventional energy. Isn't there anything we can do about this? Also, nobody has found the time for a phone call to Equinix and CyrusOne to ask if it is possible to have the existing servers switch to renewable energy (I have tried calling them, but they wouldn't talk to me). Tradeoff yes - but the planet is dying. It's on Wikipedia.

Oh, I've already tried writing to wikitech-l, which did not lead anywhere. I also asked to be added to ops-l, which was denied. I submitted a presentation to Wikimania 2016, which was not accepted (although it received top scores from some reviewers). At both the 2015 and 2016 Wikimanias, I sat down with a bunch of people and received many smiles and nods, but no commitments. Most of all, I set up a page on Meta back in 2015, and have been updating it since, but until now, the WMF Operations team has yet to weigh in on it, even though more than 200 community members have expressed their support for the initiative. This maybe helps you understand why I am asking for the right venue to have an actual discussion with your team about this.

Thank you for your reply, Brandon. Maybe I should clarify my question: Where can Wikipedians have a discussion with you and your team about running Wikipedia's servers on renewable energy? The information you provided in your last two comments is very interesting, and I would like to address them at the appropriate venue. Thanks!

Thank you for this information, Brandon. While your points are understandable, this does not mean that we should not try to find a vendor that uses renewable energy for their servers. So again: Where can we discuss this?

Hi, where can we have a good discussion about the need to choose a datacenter that runs on renewable energy? I suppose that this bug is not the ideal location. Thanks for any pointers!

Hi @Gnom1 - the legal language at the bottom of the page is deliberately only in English because full context is hard to ensure with all translations.

Hi Deskana, thank you for your comment! I am sorry that there has been a misunderstanding. By 'information at the bottom of the page', I was referring to the final line of the page that reads, "This page is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License. Terms of Use • Privacy Policy", which can be found at the very bottom of the page.

Hi, the information at the bottom of the page is still untranslated. Also, why do the app links have to be in English? I am confused.

I signed an NDA called "Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information", see my talk page on Meta. I think this can be verified with the WMF legal department.

Gnom1 added a comment to T18691: RFC: Section headings should have a clickable anchor.

Hi, I would like to ask for a different symbol for the German-language projects. The current symbol is highly confusing for German-language users. "§" is exclusively used in a legal context in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, because the only use of the "§" sign in these countries is to indicate sections in laws. See "Paragraphenzeichen" on German Wikipedia or run an image search for "Paragraphenzeichen" and see where it is used. I have no recommendation for a replacement. The German Wikipedia community has been discussing the issue here.
