It's terrible news for Wikipedia[edit]

Yes, another one. Another great contributor away. How many Owdkies are necessary in order to substituting one Picaroon? One hundred? Three hundred? Thousand? A million of Owdkies? That is what Wikipedia is losing. Because Wikipedia is losing. I hope you be back as soon as possible. Sincerely. --Owdki talk 23:27, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

I just saw your userpage, and I'm very sorry that we've lost you. If there is anything I can do to help revitalize your interest, I hope you will let me know. Best regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 01:35, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
I respect your decision, and thank you for your work to date. Best wishes for whatever you go on to do. AGK § 22:48, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I am very sad to see this. You were always a voice of reason. I hope you feel differently some day and come back to us, but wish you the best if it's not meant to be. --JayHenry (talk) 00:31, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Man, I have to watch these things a bit more closely. You were, and probably still are, on the best, Picaroon. I hope in time you decide to return. You were one of the few editors interested in some areas which get comparatively little attention, and one of the best. If there is ever anything you want, please feel free to let me know, by e-mail or through the talk page. Whatever you do from here on out, you will always have our respect and gratitude. Hoping for the best for you in whatever you choose to be involved in in the future. John Carter (talk) 01:06, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Call me late to the news, but I've been busy with real life events to a certain degree that I did not notice this until now. Best wishes--- and hopefully, some day, you will return when things are changed. - Penwhale | Blast him / Follow his steps 17:30, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry to see you go- we need all the help we can get with Africa and Nigeria-related pages! Thanks for the work you did! Rjhatl (talk) 22:07, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
I also just noticed Picaroon's userpage. Anyway, to him, all the best in your future endeavors! Sincerely, --Le Grand Roi des CitrouillesTally-ho! 02:31, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Template:Welcome-anon-Jimbo[edit]

I notice that you previously deleted this template under CSD:T1. I fail to see how it is divisive or inflammatory, and in any case CSD:T1 is (effectively) defunct now. I invite you to restore the template; otherwise I will list at DRV. Stifle (talk) 09:25, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

List of tyrants[edit]

I can not recall being informed that you made this nomination Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of tyrants (second nomination). Was there a reason you did not inform me as the creator of the page that it was up for deletion? --PBS (talk) 11:56, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:The Matrix Poster.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:The Matrix Poster.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.
  • If you believe the bot has made an error, please turn it off here and leave a message on my owner's talk page.


Thank you. DASHBot (talk) 05:36, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of São Tomé, Paraná[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on São Tomé, Paraná requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. ThePCKid (talk) 04:35, 30 May 2011 (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.

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)

Your admin status[edit]

Hello. I'm a steward. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc.) was adopted by community consensus recently. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing of administrators' activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.

You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for 2 years) on ha.wikipedia, where you are an administrator. Since hawiki does not have an own administrators' rights review process, the global one applies.

If you wish to retain your rights, you should notify the community that the stewards sent you this information about your inactivity to discuss the matter. Following your community's discussion, if the community then wants that you keep your rights, please contact the stewards at m:Stewards' noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish to continue to maintain the rights, and demonstrate a continued requirement to maintain these rights.

We stewards will evaluate the responses. If there is no response at all after approximately one month, we will proceed to remove your administrative rights. In cases of doubt, we will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review. If you have any questions, please contact us on m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Best regards, --MF-W 22:42, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
