User talk:LorenzoAncora

From Free Software Directory
Jump to: navigation, search


Welcome to the Backlog Admin Group (BAG). I was surprised that you nor anyone else didn't introduce yourself to me.

I use to insert the admin verification link below on admin user pages but it was hard to read the markup since it was pure HTML (perhaps it's copy/pasted from a web page?) and not MediaWiki markup. Please fill the email if you are ok with that or remove * Email: '''Please add your email'''. However I need you email since you are member of BAG so you can email it to me at if you want to keep it private. You can insert the below text in you user page if you want to use it:

{{DISPLAYTITLE:Lorenzo Ancora|noerror}}

My real name is '''Lorenzo L. Ancora'''. I am an [[Free_Software_Directory:Administrators|administrator]] on the Free Software Directory. ([ verify]) I am a member of the [[Free Software Directory:Backlog Admin Group|Backlog Admin Group]]. I speak Italian and English. We appreciate participation.

Kind regards. --David Hedlund (talk) 13:27, 29 May 2019 (EDT)

Hi David, we met a long time ago during the weekly meeting, it's a pleasure to hear from you again. Since I am a regular contributor to the meetings, I am an administrator from 7 dic 2018‎ and I have a personal website, I am well known and you should have no trouble contacting me directly or indirectly. 🙂
My user page contains markup code specially created for the Free Software Directory in order to guarantee a well-defined aspect and a well-defined behavior, which could not be obtained through abstractions such as wikitext. You can freely draw inspiration from it, without having to ask: I'm not one of those people who loves to copy, I like to build from scratch and eventually share.
As requested, I added my email to the user page, top right together with the other links. If that's not enough, I get in the same inbox every notification from this wiki and from IRC MemoServ.
If you need anything else, I remain at your disposal. --LorenzoAncora (talk) 10:22, 30 May 2019 (EDT)
Thanks, I added the admin verfication link to your page, please review it: --David Hedlund (talk) 03:54, 3 June 2019 (EDT)

Personal Kanban

David Hedlund can you approve Personal Kanban, please? :-) -- LorenzoAncora (talk) 15:49, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

You might want to post this message on David's talk page. -- Sudoman (talk) 10:23, 17 October 2018 (EDT)
He should receive a notification as it happens on Wikipedia. If you (who are not mentioned) have received a notification, why should not he? :-O
David likely didn't receive a notification because he probably isn't tracking changes to your talk page. He won't be notified by someone linking to his user page. You have to write something on a page they're watching, such as their talk page.
On Wikipedia it is enough to quote a user so that he receives a notification. It would be a good idea to copy that method, also because you too use MediaWiki. -- LorenzoAncora (talk) 15:24, 18 October 2018 (EDT)

The reason why I noticed your message, was because I was looking for spam on the forum and thought I should let you know. -- Sudoman (talk) 10:50, 18 October 2018 (EDT)

Anyway, why do not you approve it instead? It should be the same thing. :-) -- LorenzoAncora (talk) 13:44, 17 October 2018 (EDT)
I generally don't review entries, because I'm very busy with other things. I suggest joining #fsf on freenode during the directory meeting and asking someone to review your entry. See the Main_Page for info. Thanks! -- Sudoman (talk) 10:50, 18 October 2018 (EDT)
... Ok. I have already sent an email to Joshua Gay of #fsf on 15/10. However, I will contact Mr. Hedlund on his page. So, anytime I edit my program page... do I have to request approval again? -- LorenzoAncora (talk) 15:24, 18 October 2018 (EDT)
Josh Gay doesn't work for the FSF anymore. Someone needs to approve your page, but I'm not sure whether it is needed each time. Active participants in the Directory and Directory meetings sometimes become Directory admins whose edits are automatically approved. -- Sudoman (talk) 10:50, 19 October 2018 (EDT)
Yes, you should definitely join us for the Directory meetings. They happen every Friday at Noon Eastern. I came across this here in the meeting, and it's more fun to work on the Directory with friends. I'm the new Josh Gay btw (well, relatively new; I've been at it for a couple years now) donaldr3 (talk) 12:19, 19 October 2018 (EDT)
Thank you for the explanation and for approving my pages.
I will try to attend your meetings (for me it is at 18:00 in the evening). :-) -- LorenzoAncora (talk) 15:22, 19 October 2018 (EDT)
You are welcome! Thank you for contributing to software freedom! - Craigt (talk) 15:22, 16 November 2018 (EST)

unset (please remove message when done)

You forgot to unset approved

--Bendikker (talk) 13:01, 1 January 2019 (EST)

I set it up right after last week's meeting but then you and Craigt did some edits and it seemed rude to press not approved. However, since you ask, I set it now. TY and happy new year to both of you. :-) --LorenzoAncora (talk) 13:49, 1 January 2019 (EST)

Happy New Year to you to, Best Wishes. --Bendikker (talk) 16:57, 1 January 2019 (EST)

Licence category (may remove this message)

Hello, I see you are working on the licences, when I edited some, I noticed not all containing

Category:Free license (at the end)

I am only working on completing a specific backlog entry. I must only delete or reformat pages, not alter their categorization. --LorenzoAncora (talk) 14:26, 11 January 2019 (EST)

Also, I restored a licence david had deleted (It is used when editing on the blue space where you can save, but maybe take a look at it, maybe you can do it better (should maybe be

I've enhanced and approved Free_Software_Directory:Copyrights. The other admins will choose with a votation to make link to it or to the official license page. --LorenzoAncora (talk) 14:26, 11 January 2019 (EST)

Best regards --Bendikker (talk) 13:21, 11 January 2019 (EST)

Keep up with your good work. --LorenzoAncora (talk) 14:26, 11 January 2019 (EST)
