Announcements on main page[edit]

Hi I am polish native user of Wiki and there are Announcements on main page of pl version of Wikiversity. Unfortunately there is huge mistake in translation for information dated on 27 May of 2008 about proposed closure of Wikiversity. Can you tell me how to edit this infobox (or is it available for admins only?) and I will do it. Regards--Verwolff 10:26, 22 July 2008 (UTC)Reply


You might want to take a look at Template:Welcome/Fr and perhaps turn that or Template:Welcome/fr into a redirect to the other. --mikeu talk 20:14, 18 January 2009 (UTC)Reply

A python question on classes and globals[edit]

Bon jour!

I have a basic question on classes (in python), in particular, issues with local and global variables.

I want to see if we could convert group theoretical notions into programmes. It is natural to use classes, but I am new to it. I have begun with sketch User:hillgentleman/FiniteGroup.py. The first thing we can do with groups, is to check if a set-theoretic map between two groups is a homomorphism. The function call print m.isHomomorphism(fromGroup=A,toGroup=B,map={1:'e'}, verbose=True) is rather awkward; if m is a FiniteGroupMap object, then I should need only call it with print m.isHomomorphism which would return a True or False after a brute force check.

Currently, the script can be run. However, if I make the aforementioned replacement print m.isHomomorphism, I get an error message saying that the global variable fromGroup is not defined.

So what went wrong? <Hillgentleman| ~ | > 07:49, 16 March 2009 (UTC)Reply

Hum, sorry to can't help you, but i'm not able to create a python script. I'm just a user about already existing script.Crochet.david 08:14, 16 March 2009 (UTC)Reply


Bon jour Crochet David ! Would you like to help out with the beta.custodian tools? Regards <Hillgentleman| ~ | > 18:35, 27 March 2009 (UTC)Reply

if you think that these tools will help us, why not. Crochet.david 22:33, 27 March 2009 (UTC)Reply


Bonjour! I have switched on your custodial tools. Thank you and please continue with your good work. Regards, <Hillgentleman| ~ | > 12:01, 5 April 2009 (UTC)Reply

Thanks. I hope to not make stupidity. Crochet.david 16:48, 5 April 2009 (UTC)Reply

Re: Deletion for spam[edit]

User:人间天国 / sulutil:人间天国 posted on many chinese language and multilingual wikis (such as zh.wikipedia (already deleted: wikipedia:zh:人间天国大学, wikipedia:zh:人类发展趋势, wikipedia:zh:信息定义, wikipedia:zh:世界发展趋势, wikipedia:zh:何谓人, and wikipedia:zh:宇宙信息系统论), commons (commons:Commons:文件上传服务. this is a completely wrong place to post) and here) to advetise his own idea. see luxo:人间天国. and i think the content he/she posted looks like something about cult in general rules. maybe nominating these pages on AfD page is ok (some of his articles on zh.wikipedia were speedy deleted, and some of them were deleted via AfD), but i cannot find AfD page on this wiki. --Liangent 04:57, 21 June 2009 (UTC)Reply

Ok, it's because the same text was written on several wiki that you said it was spam. I now better understood
好吧,这是因为相同的文字写的几个维基你说,这是垃圾邮件。我现在有了更好的理解.Crochet.david 15:48, 21 June 2009 (UTC)Reply


Hi, Mr. Crochet.david, Regarding the topic School:هندسة - it was a translation of the English topic, school:engineering at English Wikiversity, but not complete yet. I still confused whether to resume work or not because I can't get enough Arab volunteers to work sufficiently and so to request an Arabic Wikiversity. If you find it is worth to delete, it would be OK. I may try to work it again next month since I'm busy at work nowadays. Thank you very much.


I'm sorry to disturb you, but I created this template, forgetting there was an existing one with a slightly different name. Now I would like to delete it but don't have the privilege to do so. I'd be glad if you do that for me.Email4mobile 15:12, 28 September 2009 (UTC)Reply

To propose a page for deletion, simply affix the template {{delete}} to the page.Crochet.david 16:40, 28 September 2009 (UTC)Reply

States of Wikiversities, IE Bug[edit]

For some reason IE seems not to be able to handle the short three-digit color codes (ex. bgcolor="#f53") you are using at States of Wikiversities, every cell is black. When I tested to replace it with the six-digit equivalent (#f53 = #ff5533) everything seemed fine. Kaj 09:34, 5 October 2009 (UTC)Reply


Very nice work on the page. Congratulations and thanks a lot. But you made a small mistake. The Russian wikiversity has launched but it is still on the projects in incubation.--ZaDiak(T)(C)@ 18:48, 4 December 2009 (UTC)Reply

Yes, i've not update information since november so, i will use my holidays to make the update since the last. Crochet.david 15:33, 6 December 2009 (UTC)Reply
Okay, sorry but i did not notice that you had not updated since november and i thought that you forgot to include ru.wv in the created projects.--ZaDiak(T)(C)@ 07:47, 7 December 2009 (UTC)Reply

Make contribs in the polish wikiversity in the betawikiversity, when the polish may be independant (5-6 active contributors every month) the polish wikiversity will be create.Crochet.david 17:17, 21 June 2010 (UTC)Reply

State of Swedish Wikiversity[edit]


The Swedish Wikiversity has taken off recently, so I was wondering how much's left to receive validation? Anyway, thanks for keeping this site in order. Bounce1337 20:37, 6 September 2010 (UTC)Reply

The language commitee take a look to the project in incubation (betawikiversity, incubaor wiki or wikisource) and after a time that it be sure for a long life of an independant wiki, it "call" the fondation to open the new language wiki. If the work is during as now, the sv.wv may be open before the end of the year. Crochet.david 17:25, 7 September 2010 (UTC)Reply

tr.WV content marked as moved to sv.WV[edit]

Salut mon ami, this seems not correct: it is Turkish language. And this could also stay at beta I think. Au revoir, ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 21:51, 10 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

Ok, Thanks for this checking. Crochet.david 19:12, 11 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

Hello! Thank you for your contribution, I'm ready for discussion, Our goal is to become arabic wikiversity an independent project of betawikiversity.--Aiman Saeed أيـمـن. 14:08, 27 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

Bot on AR wikiversity[edit]

Thank you, I have a bot on Arabic Wikipedia Can I use it here? --Aiman Saeed أيـمـن. 09:41, 2 May 2011 (UTC)Reply

You can run your bot without flag (use the -pt:"30" to avoid flooding the Recent Change) after some change, you can call a bot flag in the babel. Crochet.david 09:59, 2 May 2011 (UTC)Reply

Re- AR.WV is running[edit]

I am very happy about this news... Thank you Thank you to help you Thank you for your efforts

I invite you to visit us always in the AR.WV Best regards --Aiman Saeed أيـمـن. 08:39, 13 July 2011 (UTC)Reply

Helped me[edit]

I need help

Some users add pages from Wikipedia

Such as ابن سينا I want to delete

Do you use the template {{deleted}} as in the beta

Please help me --Aiman Saeed أيـمـن. 09:43, 13 July 2011 (UTC)Reply

Yes, you can use {{delete}} template to indicate pages need to be deleted. But you need make a vote to have your first sysop in the new arabic wikiversity. You can tell temporally-sysop-right in the metawiki, but start to make a vote to have a sysop who can make the first work (rename, delete, undelete, undo, revoc...). Crochet.david 15:16, 13 July 2011 (UTC)Reply

Thank you very much. --Aiman Saeed أيـمـن. 10:10, 14 July 2011 (UTC)Reply

Move pages[edit]

We are in urgent need of this option (Move pages) in AR.WV But it does not exist --Aiman Saeed أيـمـن. 07:31, 16 July 2011 (UTC)Reply

The "rename" action arrived 4 days after the creation of the account. The "delete" and "undelete" action are only for sysop. Crochet.david 07:50, 16 July 2011 (UTC)Reply

Thank you![edit]

Dear David, I would like to thank for all the great work you have done on Wikiversity beta for the Arabic project during the last two years until the last steps when the project became live. You have done a great job! Thank you again. --Ciphers 08:01, 16 July 2011 (UTC)Reply


Hi David, I hope you like the Template:Welcome/Nl? I must admit I was rather lost, after I arrived here from the Dutch Wikipedia. Making this template made me realize what this is about here. -- Mdd 20:42, 20 July 2011 (UTC)Reply

I make a rename and a history fusion to use the .../Nl template. When the NL.WV will be open, all page vill be delete, but not the page with /Nl at the end. If you look the category as category:FR,category:FI, ... you can see that a lot of page finish by /Fr ou /Fi. That the reason of that I do. Crochet.david 21:13, 20 July 2011 (UTC)Reply
And this system make work the use of {{Welcome}} template only and take the good language by the preference user. Crochet.david 21:15, 20 July 2011 (UTC)Reply
Ok, I am not sure I have understood everything, but I guess it is ok. Thanks -- Mdd 22:03, 20 July 2011 (UTC)Reply

Site logo protection[edit]

Hello. Could you please protect File:Wiki.png to be edited and moved only by sysops ? If somebody uploads a new version of this file, the logo site will change as well, so anybody can replace the logo of the website by the picture he wants. Thanks for your comprehension. -- Quentinv57 10:47, 23 October 2011 (UTC)Reply
