WP:HAU, Status, and you![edit]

As you may know, the StatusBot responsible for maintaining the status of the Highly Active Users was taken offline. We now have a replacement in the Qui status system. This semi-automatic system will allow you to easily update your status page found at Special:Mypage/Status which the HAU page code is now designed to read from. If you are already using Qui (or a compatible system) - great! - no action is needed (other than remembering to update your status as necessary). If not, consider installing Qui. You can also manually update this status by changing the page text to online, offline, or busy. While it is not mandatory, the nature of HAU is that people are often seeking a quick answer from someone who is online and keeping our statuses up-to-date will assist with this. Note if you were previously using your /Status page as something other than a one-word status indicator, your HAU entry may have been set to "status=n" to correct display issues. Please clear this parameter if you change things to be "HAU compatible". Further questions can be raised at WT:HAU. This message was delivered by xenobot 23:14, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

User talk:Protonk#Ace Combat[edit]

As the above discussion indicates, we are working on merging some Ace Combat content and the information previously found at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of fictional aircraft in Ace Combat could be beneficial to the merge. Would you be so kind as to userfy that article while we discuss the possibility of merging? Thanks! --Happy editing! Sincerely, Le Grand Roi des CitrouillesTally-ho! 00:54, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

People ganging up to disrupt an article[edit]

Hi,

I found you at Wikipedia:Editor assistance. If you can spare a few minutes of your time helping out at Indo-Aryan loanwords in Tamil, I would be thankful.

I am developing an article on words borrowed by Tamil from Indo-Aryan languages. I am citing a standard authoritative lexicon from which I find the words that are borrowed before including them at Indo-Aryan loanwords in Tamil. There are a few people who seem to be intent in damaging the article by adding "cite" tags, "disputed" and "dubious" tags for the article and threatening to delete it within 24 hours.

Could you please help?

Thanks. ­ Kris (talk) 19:05, 27 September 2008 (UTC)


You had participated at Talk:Indo-Aryan loanwords in Tamil yesterday. Kindly have a look at revised Indo-Aryan loanwords in Tamil vote at its AfD. Thanks for your time ­ Kris (talk) 23:19, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

American Committees on Foreign Relations[edit]

Hi, I was about to create an article on this when I saw you deleted it as an expired PROD last year. The old article may not have shown it, but it is a very notable program dating to 1938 of the extremely notable Council on Foreign Relations. It came up recently in this deletion debate: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Manhattan Committee on Foreign Relations. Apparently some hoaxsters have created a phony site pretending to be one of the real and notable committees, and are trying to use wikipedia to help the scam, and someone (the real organization(?)) complained. So would you mind recreating the old article so I can see if there is anything I can use? There are plenty of refs on the real organization(s).John Z (talk) 00:37, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Deletion review for Ethnic stereotypes in popular culture[edit]

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Ethnic stereotypes in popular culture. Since you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedy-deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. I apologize in case you believe I should have discussed it with you first, but I felt that this was an WP:IAR case that had nothing to do with your original closure. Restoration is being requested to comply with the GFDL, as material from these articles had been copied to other articles before these were deleted. DHowell (talk) 03:05, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Deletion for Undergraduate scholarships at Duke University[edit]

  2. 08:12, 9 August 2007 Singularity (talk | contribs) deleted "Undergraduate scholarships at Duke University" ‎ (see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Undergraduate scholarships at Duke)

Hey, I know this is quite old, but just thought I'd ask anyways. I didn't see a discussion or rationale for the deletion of the above article. I was just wondering what the rationale for deleting this article was without a discussion. Robertson Scholars Program has its own article in existence since 2006 and is a subset of the more generic (now deleted) article. (There was also a BN Duke Scholarship page that has been deleted). I can certainly understand how somebody would argue these articles don't meet WP:N. Then, however, the following articles should also be deleted: Robertson Scholars Program, Scholarships of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Florida Opportunity Scholars Program, Pitt Scholarship, etc. Personally, I think that prestigious country wide scholarships (such as the Rhodes Scholarship) are certainly notable, while perhaps university-specific scholarships are not. I just want consistency across the board and thought that perhaps there should be a discussion concerning this matter. Cheers, -Bluedog423Talk 19:24, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Request for copy of deleted article[edit]

Hi there! I have found you through Category:Wikipedia administrators who will provide copies of deleted articles, so I thought that maybe you would be willing to do me a favor. I would like to have access to the contents of the article Folkspraak, which was deleted from Wikipedia many months ago. Could you send me the source code of the article, please? I do not know the way you prefer to send it to me (any way is okay). Perhaps pasting it to WP:Sandbox and then sending me the permalink of that version would suffice. But if you prefer another way to send me the source code, feel free to do it. Thanks in advance. --Antonielly (talk) 00:47, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the effort. Unfortunately, that stub is not the version I have been looking for. There was a previous version which was a medium-sized article; it contained examples of variants of Folkspraak and an extensive discussion about the methodology choices and trade-offs to select the base vocabulary of the language. Maybe the version you have pasted in a subpage of my user space represents a 2nd creation of the article after the original version was deleted. If that is the case, is it possible to recover the text of the first deleted version, rather than the text of the second deleted version? --Antonielly (talk) 01:48, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I have just realized that other deleted versions are also kept at the article's history. It is very good that MediaWiki keeps all the deleted versions of a page. I have found what I was looking for. Thanks a lot! --Antonielly (talk) 02:03, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

American_Society_of_Cataract_and_Refractive_Surgery[edit]

Hello, I'm just trying to add wiki links to an article on Hyaluronan - the whole article is right at the edge of my biology skills, so I don't want to tread on any toes. one of the claims in that article is that

  • In 1992, Miller and Stegmann received the Innovators Award by the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery for developing the use of Healon in repairing injured eyes

I've added a citation needed - and I tried adding a link to American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and when it redlinked I followed it up and saw that you had deleted a previous article. I can't see an archived version of that - so I wasn't sure whether to leave the redlink - or if it should have a redirect or something?

I've left it as a red link but I thought I'd drop you this line in case there was an obvious fix to the redlink. Cheers EdwardLane (talk) 15:55, 10 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. RL0919 (talk) 22:20, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

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 if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
