You will be missed.[edit]

I can't say that enough.--Sean Black 22:07, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Nor can I. You were one of the nicest Wikipedians I ever encountered. AnnH 22:09, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
HUH? What just happened? Kate don't quit, we need to hold on to the high quality Wikipedians. Dragons flight 22:21, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
I can never thank you enough for the kindness you showed me. FloNight talk 22:23, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
After staring blankly at the screen for a long, long while, trying to put in words what I feel to see you leaving, I've realized that I can't. I can't. Wikipedia has suffered a great loss today. I'll miss you more than words can say, my dear Longhorn. Phaedriel tell me - 22:24, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Sorry to hear it. Jkelly 22:41, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
We're really going to miss you...I hope you will consider coming back some day. EWS23 | (Leave me a message!) 22:58, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Aw, shucks. The poor requests for protection page will now get backlogged without you! You will be missed. Good luck in your endeavors, and here's another cat! Cowman109Talk 23:09, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Please come back, trust me I got harrased and blackmailed by that idiot Brandt a few weeks ago but I'm more or less ignoring the situation, don't let Brandt get the best of you. Thanks Jaranda wat's sup 23:16, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Katefan0, you are one of the very best contributors to the project: An earnest contributor, a rare thing, and a genuine asset. We can't afford to lose anymore like you.

Please reconsider. If you leave you let them win. Every hypocritical professional victim and his goon squad will see this as a victory. Stay and show them you can't be bullied. FeloniousMonk 23:29, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

/me waves. I'm sorry that this happened, and I hope you find a way to come back to Wikipedia. Best of luck in whatever you choose to do! FreplySpang 23:38, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Unbelievable that this has happened. You are one of the best contributors we have, and I very much hope you will reconsider. It's terrible how much damage that one individual has done. SlimVirgin (talk) 23:47, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

I do not understand why you would allow yourself to be intimidated by Daniel Brandt...
I do not know weather or not if his "accusation" has any credibilty but assuming it does I do not see why it would pose a problem.
--Cat out 00:30, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
I know I know. I'm violating the protection of a page. But hopefully kate won't mind. Kate is the kindest, most helpful person I've ever run into on Wikipedia. Without her, I wouldn't be here. It's as simple as that. Kate's kind words and encouragement helped me through many a bad day and night on here. Honestly, I'm not sure how long I'll last without her support. That's how important she's been to me on Wikipedia. But I understand her decision. I had my privacy violated this week, so I know how terrible it is, especially for Kate, who has always kept her privacy very guarded on here. Kate, you will be greatly missed. I can't put into words how much you mean to me. But as I said to you privately, I'm not going anywhere. You know how to reach me. I'll always be here for you. Hopefully, someday, you'll be able to return. I hope so. The site has lost its best admin, in my opinion. We'll all miss you. --Woohookitty(meow) 00:13, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
I too have to edit this page to say that I am sorry to see you go and I wish Brandt could have approached this in a more civil manner. Ashibaka tock 15:59, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for your help Kate. All the best HeadleyDown 12:24, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, everybody, for your kind words. I'm just going to say a few things here, and this will be my last edit, though of course, you can still use the "email this user" link if you want to say hi.
Being part of Wikipedia has been a joy. You're all outstanding people. I've learned a ton and I'm a fuller, better person for it. Everyone who dedicates so much of themselves to this encyclopedia should be proud of their contributions, because I think Wikipedia's mission of free information is noble. It's not a perfect place -- it has its problems, some significant. I think the Wikitruth site, while veering into ad hominem too much, still makes some valid points. And setting up a "review" site is also not a bad idea on its face, though it too I think has a tendency to focus too much on personalities (ahem). I think minorly notable people, especially those who can't or don't understand how to work within the system, sometimes get rough treatment, which is unfortunate. I also worry that sometimes the "wiki-way" works to the detriment of quality standards. But on the whole, this has been a great experience. So I'm more than a little sad to be saying goodbye.
Hey there, Cool Cat. To your question: Simple -- I have no interest in having my real life disrupted, even over spurious claims. Surely you can understand that. (And they are spurious, I've done nothing wrong here.) Today's events were the catalyst for my leaving, for sure. But this latest attempt to compromise my privacy, combined with a threat to try to somehow have my livelihood taken from me, caps off a long two months of reevaluating whether volunteering here is worth it. I have an elderly parent who depends on me, and I'm not willing to jeopardize our well-being. Not willing to entertain the possibility of even just an uncomfortable phone call or meeting, even over a baseless complaint. So, here I go.
To everybody who's been a friend to me, I hope you won't be a stranger. Drop me an email any time. To Daniel Brandt, I'm not sure what I did to offend you, but I wish you'd at least tried to speak with me about whatever it is. So, I'm hanging up my hat, and I'm asking Daniel et al to please, sincerely, just leave me be. Thanks again to all. · Katefan0 (scribble)
I don't know how to say this without sounding like a total fool.. I'm going to miss you. I'm sorry that this happened.. and I can't believe that it should happen to someone like you. This has made me sad... Linuxbeak (drop me a line) 19:15, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
You will be missed, and the current going-ons as regards threats to administrators have to stop... Can't afford to lose that many great editors... —Nightstallion (?) 06:15, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
I second all the above about you leaving. Its your choice to stay or now, so I am not going to lecture you on anything, but I will say that I will miss you here :(.Voice-of-AllTalk 08:07, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
  • What the...? You will definitely be sorely missed. - Best regards, Mailer Diablo 13:24, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
  • I hope you'll be back. Best wishes until then William M. Connolley 20:34, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

God bless, and may you succeed in all of your endeavors. You will be missed. Snoutwood (talk) 00:44, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged.

Main page appearance: Katharine Hepburn[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Katharine Hepburn know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on May 12, 2012. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 12, 2012. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or his delegate Dabomb87 (talk · contribs), or start a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Katherine Hepburn in a publicity shot, circa 1941

Katharine Hepburn (1907–2003) was an American actress of film, stage, and television. Known for her headstrong independence and spirited personality, Hepburn's career as a Hollywood leading lady spanned more than 60 years. She won a record four Academy Awards, and in 1999 was named by the American Film Institute as Hollywood's top female legend. Hepburn began acting in college, and spent four years in the theatre before entering films in 1932. She became an instant star, but after a series of unsuccessful films was named "box office poison". The Philadelphia Story revived her career, and she subsequently formed a popular alliance with Spencer Tracy that lasted 25 years. In middle age Hepburn found a niche playing spinsters, such as in The African Queen, and became a Shakespearean stage actress. She continued to work into old age, making her final screen appearance in 1994 at the age of 87. Hepburn is remembered as an important cultural figure, as she came to epitomize the "modern woman" in 20th-century America and helped change perceptions of women. (more...)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that you will not longer be able to request restoration of the tools because of your prior inactivity. You have until December 30, 2012 to request restoration or else the policy will prevent you from doing so in the future; you would need to seek a new WP:RFA. Until December 30, you can file a request at WP:BN for review by the crats. Thank you. MBisanz talk 04:22, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
