Boilerplate responses
If you can anticipate any requests (which may be impossible) that you may receive, you may create the boilerplate responses ahead of time so they can be added to the interface. Otherwise we can add them later as necessary. They should be titled like Response:en-wle-Title here (note 'en' is the language of the response).

Every queue requires a signature, of course. We can modify the below standard template to reflect the WLA project.

Yours sincerely, <OTRS_FIRST_NAME> <OTRS_LAST_NAME> -- Wikipedia - --- Disclaimer: all mail to this address is answered by volunteers, and responses are not to be considered an official statement of the Wikimedia Foundation. For official correspondence, please contact the Wikimedia Foundation by certified mail at the address listed on


  • define new members to be added to OTRS (require user name and email address)
  • craft boilerplate answers
  • craft 3 signatures

Translations needed[edit]

For Wiki Loves Africa some texts need to be translated. You can add the translations directly to sub pages of the template, but if you do not know how to do that you can add me below and ping me. The landing page needs translations by creating a sub page, similar to Commons:Wiki Loves Africa 2014/Participate/fr for the French translation. Add other translations on this page below this message and ping me.

If there are any questions, just let me know. This should be translated in as much as languages possible. Thanks! Romaine (talk) 23:28, 26 September 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • English and French are complete now. Other languages are still needed. Romaine (talk) 23:52, 26 September 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I tag User:Anthere. Thanks Hanay (talk) 18:53, 19 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry for not answering earlier Hanay. Took a great two (hmmm, rather three weeks break :))
Did we choose ? Not yet, the jury is working on it ! I expect (hope) we will announce the winners before the end of the month. Anthere (talk) 13:50, 5 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
