Technical news

  • Wikimedia previously used the IRC network Freenode. However, due to changes over who controlled the network with reports of a forceful takeover by several ex-staff members, the Wikimedia IRC Group Contacts decided to move to the new Libera Chat network. It has been reported that Wikimedia related channels on Freenode have been forcibly taken over if they pointed members to Libera. There is a migration guide and Wikimedia discussions about this.

Buffalo, New York[edit]

Good afternoon Miniapolis,

A couple months ago I had asked for your advice on the Buffalo article. At this point I would consider it ready for a GA review pending a copyedit. I'd like to submit it for an FA review after a peer review before the end of the summer. Although I understand you're busy (and it is a lengthy article with huge amounts of wikitext), if you are interested in copyediting it please feel free (you did a great job with the Utica article). Since you're in WP:WNY, I'm guessing it's a topic you'd be interested in. If you're too busy, that's understandable as well! dekema (Formerly Buffaboy) (talk) 20:01, 26 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I didn't remember copyediting Utica, but it's been a while . Although I usually don't copyedit on request (to avoid being besieged and to control my workload here) and generally do the oldest requests first, since I'm part of WPWNY I'll be glad to copyedit the article. Keep in mind, though, that a copyedit by a particular editor is no guarantee of a GA (let alone an FA!). I do my best, and since I do a lot of backlog work it'll be a pleasure. Keep cool and all the best, Miniapolis 22:42, 26 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Miniapolis: Well I appreciate you taking the request as I know you have a plate full of other things to do. Thank you. dekema (Formerly Buffaboy) (talk) 23:47, 26 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
