Reason for block:


I noticed you conducting an import with these changesets

The import guidelines require that imports be done from a dedicated account, after consultation with the local community and be documented on the wiki.

These imports were not done from a dedicated account.

I would suggest that the dedicated account

  • have a link to your main account for contact purposes


  • have a listing of any imports you have done on it with links to the entries in the import catalogue

As a general reminder, the other import guidelines can be found on the wiki. These include

  • appropriate documentation

  • consultation with the local community and the imports@ mailing list

  • having a plan to fix an mistakes in case of a broken upload

  • other technical requirements

This block will remove itself when you have logged in and read it. It is only placed to ensure that you read the message before continuing to upload. Additionally, I have asked the French community to contact you.

Ignoring this block and continuing to import from your main account may lead to a longer block.

To contact me you can send a message or email the data working group
