Huggle message[edit]

Hey Yaris678! You are receiving this message because you are subscribed at

I have recently launched a new downloads for beta testers that contains nightly builds of huggle, eg. versions that are built every day from our master branch and contains latest huggle. These builds are currently provided only for Windows and Ubuntu. You can find them here:

Please keep in mind that these don't have any automatic updates and if you download and start using nightly build, you will need to update it yourself! So don't get yourself to running old version, it's possible to install both stable and nightly huggle, which is what I suggest.

Keep the bug reports coming to phabricator: Many thanks! Petrb (talk) 10:05, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia Science Conference[edit]

Hello Yaris You're receiving this update because you asked to be informed about the Wikipedia Science Conference taking place in London on 2nd and 3rd of September. Thanks for your interest.

The call for proposals is now public and session proposals are coming in. The two keynotes, and some other invited speakers, have graciously accepted. In mid-May we will bring together a programme, a publicity poster, and an online booking form. Then we'll begin the main publicity and will need your help getting the word out.

Please put in a session proposal if you've been thinking of doing so: the deadline is the 8th May. This is far from the only way to be involved. The conference will need session moderators, a programme review group, and other volunteers: if there is a specific role you are interested in, or if you have any other questions, please email me at

Personal note: I am going to hold you & Andy to your (very welcome!) pledges to organise the unconference block on the second day. When the programme is announced it will include the times of that block. We have the entire conference facility, which includes two breakout rooms and a large catering area as well as the auditorium.

Please pass on the word to any colleagues who might want to put in a proposal or help the conference in any way. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 12:17, 14 March 2015 (UTC)


" There must be no threaded discussion, so please comment only in your own section. " You aren't doing that so could you please fix it. You've even commented in the Arbs section. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 19:39, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Yaris678, in accordance with this, I'm moving your comments into your own section. Please let me know if you have any questions. --L235 (t / c / ping in reply) 23:36, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for doing that. The conversations are all hard to follow now, but that appears to be the way it has to be.
I think it would have been easier to follow if the conversation had moved to User talk:Yaris678/Discretionary sanctions. I don't know what the best thing to do now though is.

Arbitration clarification request archived[edit]

Hi Yaris678, the Arbitration Committee has reached a consensus to decline your arbitration clarification request in favor of implementing all housekeeping provisions in one go in a few months, and so that request has been archived to Wikipedia talk:Arbitration/Requests#Clarification request: Improving the clarity of Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions (March 2015). (Let me know if you'd prefer a more formal, standard notification.) For the Arbitration Committee, --L235 (t / c / ping in reply) 02:58, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

RE: "Only warning messages"[edit]

Thanks for the help! I only started using that tool today. Is there a policy that says under what circumstances it is appropriate to use a level 4im warning template? Thanks! Rider ranger47 Talk 17:10, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Responded on your talk page. Yaris678 (talk) 09:21, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

The Footage[edit]

Thanks for editing the article! :-) I think it's now long enough to be nominated for a DYK entry. Would you be interested in doing a joint nomination? I'm wondering about something along the lines of "Did you know ... that The Footage, built in 1913-15 in Manchester, was once the largest cinema in the United Kingdom outside of London?", what do you think? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:29, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good. The only thing I'm wondering is if "The Footage" is the best title for the article. More of the article relates to the buildings original use as the Grosvenor Picture Palace. Yaris678 (talk) 21:56, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Good point, I've moved it to The Grosvenor Picture Palace. I stopped by earlier today to take some pictures of it (now in the article); I'll nominate it for DYK next. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:09, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
DYK now at Template:Did you know nominations/The Grosvenor Picture Palace! Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:54, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Old vandalism[edit]

@Bazonka:@Mike Peel:@ColinFine: On Sunday, we were talking about finding old vandalism. How about this one from January 2008? Yaris678 (talk) 14:47, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

I have no idea whether that is vandalism or not. --ColinFine (talk) 16:25, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Good find! Bazonka (talk) 21:15, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Nice catch! This was the vandalism I mentioned. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 07:58, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
