Attention : LILA TETRIKOV

MY EMAIL ON PENDING SEXUAL HARASSMENT COMPLAINT AT LEGAL + ARBCOM, and
further to some emails from WMF Gender Gap mailing list

Please reply as follows

1) What action WMF has taking on penalizing on-wiki sexual harassment
by WMF's user SITUSH based on my complaints to a) WMF LEGAL b)
EN:ARBCOM.

2) NB: WMF's user SITUSH is now a NOTABLE online sexual harasser from
news reports published as far afield as Australia and discussed on
Gender Gap as a rancorous, sexist, elitist, stupidly bureaucratic
mess.

http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2014/12/14/comment-will-editing-disputes-mean-end-wikipedia

3) What action WMF has taking to ban User SITUSH who is part of a
notorious MEATFARM known as Manchester Mafia which is nothing but a
pack of extortionist sexist, rancorous  and racist blackmailers who
extort money for correcting defamatory Wikipedia articles on
non-Wikipedians.

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Manchester_Wikimeet_Feb_2012-5.jpg

4) Further to my public correspondence with WMF Community Advocate
Patrick Early, by when is WMF prepared to either disclose real world
identity of User Sitush, or else confirm that s/he is impersonating as
Simon Tushingham of AON Insurance from Manchester UK  as disclosed
on-wiki from this account so that I may sue the user properly.

5) In the meantime by when will my Wikipedia USER account be restored
by WMF as an OFFICE ACTION so that I can create and develop an English
Wikipedia article on the notable newsworthy Simon Tushingham
@Si.tush impersonator and his unchecked harassment of declared
female editors by using culturally abusive terms like piss off,
fuck off, cunt etc. with them on-wiki

6) Why a MEATFARM like the extortionist manchester mafia is tolerated
by WMF, and its male sexist accounts with privacy violating CHECKUSER
privileges not terminated, whereas female users are banned  ?

7) Is WMF prepared to identify the MEATFARM male persons in the
photographic image at point 3 ?

Linda

Can't someone come up with a way of slapping these prawns down for good?

I have, reluctantly, turned on moderation for new subscriptions, and
told mailman to e-mail the admins whenever anyone subscribes.
(Subscription will still be open.) It's my intention to unmoderate—as
quickly as possible—anyone who's posted a few times and established
that they're doing so in good faith.

I hope this will blow over soon, and everything can go back to
normal. Meanwhile, I don't think the new subscriber workload is more
than we (the admins) can handle.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Some bugs in payment form (was: Why is bank transfer no longer possible?)

2014-12-23 Thread Patricia Pena
Hi Lodewijk,

Thank you for bringing up these issues. We are looking into it and should
have some answers soon!

As for the address as a required field, would you be able to provide us
with screenshots? I couldn't reproduce it. I can see the name and *email *
fields, and these are pieces of information we request from all donors
(regardless of the donation option) so that we can send an automated *Thank
You* email.

Thanks!
Pats

 Hi Pats,

 (offlist)
 The English form seems to work fine. However, if I am clicking iDEAL in
 Dutch, it puts the address/name as a required field - while this should not
 be necessary in iDEAL. Seems like an easy bug to fix.

 But also when I enter a name etc, it simply returns to the same page,
 unlike in ENglish, where it takes me to the bank. Maybe reset the
 translations?

 Also, in English the Friesland Bank option seems to be broken. Not sure if
 that is a bug on your side or at iDEAL.

 Just some bugs I was able to spot without too much effort - hope you can
 pass it on to the right people.

 Thanks,

 Lodewijk

  Hi Lodewijk,
 
  Thanks for letting us know! IDEAL has been back up in the page, but we
  recently made a few changes that ended up accidentally removing the
 option
  from the form. It's all fixed now :)
 
  Regarding IBAN: Finance is still working with our bank and we should be
  sending an update once we hear from them.
 
  Thanks,

Thanks for telling that the iDEAL will be back soon. I don't quite

Hi Lodewijk,
   
Currently IDEAL is temporarily down on our pages (it went into
   maintenance
mode after our annual campaign), but should be back up soon :)  We
  know
the importance of this method for Dutch donors and have supported
 this
option since we started fundraising in the NL. We also support
 offline
bank
transfer (IBAN) and donors can get the account number with our Donor
Services team.
   
We had an extremely successful Fundraising campaign this year, and
  there
will be some great mobile optimization coming up in the next few
  months,
which will allow mobile donors to complete their donations in a much
faster
and easier way.
   
Thanks!

 A while back now, the chapters were no longer allowed to
 fundraise,
because
 the Wikimedia Foundation argued they would be better able to do
  this.
   At
 the time, this sounded somewhat reasonable. However, since then,
  there
have
 been some disturbing developments - at least for Dutch donors.

 No longer it is possible to pay electronically (iDEAL, one of the
  most
 common methods is no longer supported - 'electronic banking'
 simply
refers
 you back to the credit card page) or even via regular bank
 transfer
(using
 an IBAN) in the Netherlands. The donation page
 

   
  
 
 https://donate.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:FundraiserLandingPagecountry=NLuselang=enutm_medium=spontaneousutm_source=fr-redirutm_campaign=spontaneous
 
 only
 allows credit card and paypal, and the 'other ways to give' simply
   sends
 you to the helpdesk if you want to make a bank transfer payment.

 What is the reasoning behind this? Have bank transfers become a
  legal
 swamp? Are there statistics suggesting that this method was no
  longer
 required by donors? Did the European bank account somehow get
temporarily
 suspended?

 If it has become so hard to donate, maybe it makes more sense to
  send
the
 donors to the local chapter pages where they can actually donate
 in
   the
 local suitable methods (in this case, Wikimedia Netherlands offers
   both
 iDEAL and IBAN
 http://www.wikimedia.nl/pagina/doneren-aan-wikimedia-nederland
 ).

 One of the Dutch OTRS team members asked for elaboration, but
 didn't
quite
 get a satisfying answer. I hope this is a temporary situation, and
   that
 this threshold will be removed again. It would be sad if we go
  through
all
 kind of trouble to enable long tail methods like bitcoin, but skip
   bank
