Course page accidentally deleted[edit]

oops! In trying to edit the title and term for my course page I accidentally deleted it. But when I try to undelete it, I get this error message:

A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.

Function: ORMRow::insert Error: 1062 Duplicate entry '313' for key 'PRIMARY' (

Can you help? AminMDMA 07:53, 14 February 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by AminMDMA (talkcontribs)

AminMDMA, I will post at WP:ENB, and someone who knows more about the software than me should help. For what it's worth, I tend to stay out of those course pages when I can. I prefer working on course pages that behave just like a Wikipedia page. I've had another class I've helped (last semester) have their course page accidentally deleted as well. I don't think it was ever recovered. =( Biosthmors (talk) pls notify me (i.e. {{U}}) while signing a reply, thx 13:54, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

WP Neuroscience in the Signpost[edit]

The WikiProject Report would like to focus on WikiProject Neuroscience for a Signpost article. This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to your efforts and attract new members to the project. Would you be willing to participate in an interview? If so, here are the questions for the interview. Just add your response below each question and feel free to skip any questions that you don't feel comfortable answering. Multiple editors will have an opportunity to respond to the interview questions, so be sure to sign your answers. If you know anyone else who would like to participate in the interview, please share this with them. Have a great day. –Mabeenot (talk) 23:35, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Education Program technical update, February 2014[edit]

We've started working on "editor campaigns", a system that we expect will eventually be able to replace our current Education Program extension (and be useful for many other purposes as well). The early work with that project will focus on a system for signup up new editors for editing campaigns (such as courses, but also edit-a-thons, Wiki Loves Monuments, etc.). Because of that, progress will be slow on the current course page system. However, we have several improvements that should be available within the next few weeks.

Anyone can edit the main text of course pages

As part of the effort to make course pages behave more like regular wiki pages, we've enabled editing of course pages by anyone. Users who currently have the right to edit courses will have access to all the fields (so that they can change the start/end dates, and change the enrollment token). Users who currently cannot edit courses will be able to edit only the "page text" portion. This change should take effect on 2014-02-27.

Simplified course editing interface

We've considerably simplified the interface for editing course pages, removing the options to rename courses. Changing the title of a course would also move the course page, creating confusion and leading to a number of bugs. Several other parts of the course editing interface were not very useful, so we've removed them to make it easier on newcomers. This change should take effect on 2014-02-27.

Additional Notifications

Two students participating in the Facebook Open Academy mentorship program are currently working on additional Notifications for course pages. For the first of these, users will be notified whenever someone else adds them to a course.

Once again, if you have feedback about these new features, or other questions or ideas related to course pages, please let me know!--Sage Ross (WMF) (talk) 17:38, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Iran\xE2\x80\x93United States relations listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Iran\xE2\x80\x93United States relations. Since you had some involvement with the Iran\xE2\x80\x93United States relations redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so.
