My Talk Page



I'm an administrator, which means I can delete, undelete, protect, and unprotect pages, edit protected pages, review the text of deleted pages, block and unblock users, and close AfD, CfD, TfD, RfD, MfD, and DR debates. If you need any of these tasks done, or require assistance with a backlog, leave a comment. If you disagree with an action I made, require assistance with bots, need information from a database query, or require assistance in any other area, leave a message on my talk page. For information about me, see my user page. If the icon on the top right of these pages is green, you can also contact me very quickly via IRC. I am ST47 on the Freenode network, and can also be found in #wikipedia. (If the icon is yellow, I'm probably working on a backlog somewhere, but I'm still available.)

Wales[edit]

Resolved

Hi, I shall reply to your question on my talk page (as described there) but first, I shot over here, in order to find out to whom I was replying. Finding that you are an admin, I wanted to ask you if you were an admin who grants permissions for users to use rollback. If you do, then if you were to look at my application, you will see that I have run into difficuties there. Regards, -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 17:08, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm not really active there, or familiar with the procedures or current practice, but it seems that your request is at least getting some positive attention apart from one admin being confused about your contribution history. Regardless, I'm not comfortable jumping in to a process that seems to be working efficiently on its own at this time. ST47 (talk) 17:31, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Sure, I understand. Thank you for looking. Regards, -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 17:50, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
I still have the newbie's page on my watchlist, and have just read your message. (I had wondered how you had noticed this matter – thought you must have Wales on yours)
Do you want me to write something encouraging there? -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 18:01, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
It's up to you; I just wasn't sure why it was reverted and didn't want the user to misunderstand your message. The individual seems to be making positive contributions and I didn't want him/her to be scared off, and also wanted to make sure he knew he could talk to the guy who reverted his edit rather than going back and getting into an edit war. ST47 (talk) 18:06, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes. That's good. I shall let him understand my intention. Cheers! -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 18:53, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

POSTSCRIPT I have my permission. Now I must learn all about it, before using Rollback. -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 19:04, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

One Pebble[edit]

Hello again, I have posted the following on the user's talk page:

  • Hello Onepebble, Just a line to thank you for the incredible amount of good editing since you began on May 1. With regard to my note above, what I meant to write was, " ... at Wales. Your edits here may, to others, appear to constitute ... They have been reverted by another editor." Kind regards, -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 23:47, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

I hope you approve! Cheers! -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 23:47, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you ST47, for your encouragement. Onepebble (talk) 01:01, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Bot status @ it.wiki[edit]

Dear ST47, your STBot had no edits on it.wiki for last 12 months. If you have objections, please answer on my talk, otherwise your bot will be deflagged in 7 days. Best regards, --Gnumarcoo 17:25, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Please undo your edit[edit]

Please undo your change to commons.css. Until such time as an alternative is in place, the button certainly does have a very important function to those of us who have opted into recent changes. Your edit breaks the ability for those of us who want this useful feature to make use of it, purely for the aesthetics of those who do not. Function > Aesthetics. Please revert, as the same change was made and reverted just one week ago. - ʄɭoʏɗiaɲ τ ¢ 20:43, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

If you have opted in by adding something to your custom CSS, then simply do the same with the button:
.mw-special-Watchlist #mw-watchlist-resetbutton {
    display: block;
}
in the same way. If there is a gadget being used to opt in then add that code to the gadget. I like having the bolded watchlist too; but since the only way to get it is by editing your custom CSS, I'm ok with the fact that you need to add this too. Function and aesthetics!

July 2012 Study of authors of health-related Wikipedia pages[edit]

Dear Author/ST47

My name is Nuša Farič and I am a Health Psychology MSc student at University College London (UCL). I am currently running a quantitative study entitled Who edits health-related Wikipedia pages and why? I am interested in the editorial experience of people who edit health-related Wikipedia pages. I am interested to learn more about the authors of health-related pages on Wikipedia and what motivations they have for doing so. I am currently contacting the authors of randomly selected articles and I noticed that someone at this address not long ago edited an article on Contact Dermatitis. I would like to ask you a few questions about you and your experience of editing the above mentioned article. If you would like more information about the project, please visit my user page http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Hydra_Rain and if interested, please visit my Talk page or e-mail me on nusa.faric.11@ucl.ac.uk. Also, others interested in the study may contact me! If I do not hear back from you I will not contact this account again. Thank you very much in advance. Hydra Rain (talk) 20:28, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Union City (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:59, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

George Brown article[edit]

I received this notice of deletion because of copyright issues. I have written permission to use Lindsey William's text (that forms the bulk of the article: http://www.lindseywilliams.org/index.htm?Articles/African-) which appeared originally in a Florida newspaper.

The 3 images I included belong to the Charlotte County historical society who offer a fair use right to reproduce. I see that Wiki Commons does not deem that permission adequate & I have contacted the historical society for express permission (but not heard back yet).

Please advise! Thank you. Paulherman (talk) 13:26, 18 March 2013 (UTC)


Inactive bot on Chinese Wikipedia[edit]

Hi ST47,

I noticed that your bot User:STBot on zh.wikipedia has been inactive for more than a year. Do you still need it?

If you wish to keep its bot flag, please let me know. If you no longer need it, or there is no reply in a month, the bot flag will be removed by local bureaucrat.

Regards, --Ben.MQ (talk) 14:50, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi ST47, I have removed the bot flag. Thank you very much for the past contribution. --Ben.MQ (talk) 18:08, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:ACE2008.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks! Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 11:24, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

An RfC that you may be interested in...[edit]

As one of the previous contributors to {{Infobox film}} or as one of the commenters on it's talk page, I would like to inform you that there has been a RfC started on the talk page as to implementation of previously deprecated parameters. Your comments and thoughts on the matter would be welcomed. Happy editing!

This message was sent by MediaWiki message delivery (talk) on behalf of {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 18:27, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, 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, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. 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.
