I can be found on IRC in #wikivoyage connect and #wikivoyage-bots connect on freenode under the nickname QueenOfFrance.


Hi, I'm User:Snowolf. I originally come from the English Wikipedia although I have been most active on Meta-Wiki in recent times.

Here on the English Wikivoyage I serve as a temporary admin, helping out a bit with the transition work and setting up some new tools. Most of my activity here has been either run-of-the-mill countervandalism or importing or working on tools and the more technical side of the wiki. I maintain a port of Kbh3rd's code Vandal warning toolbox called the JS toolbox, which can be used to notify vandals and other misbehaving or simply misguided users that their edits have been reverted and they should edit constructively instead. I have a bot, User:Snowbot that has helped with some migration work, but is not currently used. I have also worked on importing and monitoring some abuse filters, but that is not really my field of expertise.

To-do list[edit]

  • Promote #wikivoyage and get that stuff sorted out
    Yes Done Sorted out the stuff Snowolf How can I help? 17:25, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Create pages explaining the global characteristics of the Wikimedia system (stewards, global sysops, CUs, OS, interface editors, global bots and global bot policy, SUL, IRC feeds, etc)
    At this stage, this is a low priority for me, as I have the Steward manual and the wikivoyage tools taking priority. Snowolf How can I help? 17:25, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
