Second opinion requested
Can someone uninvolved take a look at the minor edit-war currently going on at Bal maiden? Someone is insisting on removing the links to iron and copper because they're "common terms" (along with South Australia in the section on the exodus of miners when the mines closed). I've already reverted twice, and obviously don't want to hit the WP:3RR limit. However, I would say that in an article on Cornish mining history, these are absolutely relevant links, and readers are fairly likely to want to know more about the materials in question. Obviously, I don't want to fight over this if there genuinely is a Wikipedia policy against these links, but I can't see how these links wouldn't be appropriate in these circumstances.

Hi, I'm in discussion with a Cornish museum re a photography session where tripods would be allowed. Would someone here be willing to be the host on the ground? You don't need to be a photographer, but you would need to handout a feedback form and be our contact pointon the day. Please email me if you are interested.

Feb 20th in Falmouth
Hi, we are running a training session for museum curators and other staff on the 20th Feb in Falmouth, and have had more signups than we bargained for. Is there anyone near Falmouth who would be available on the day to assist - we usually find at these events that someone is either much slower or much faster than the class or wants to spin the thing off into a discussion as to why their article was deleted. Drop me an email if you are near Falmouth and willing to join us for the day. Jonathan Cardy (WMUK) (talk) 13:46, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Popular pages tool update
As of January, the popular pages tool has moved from the Toolserver to Wikimedia Tool Labs. The code has changed significantly from the Toolserver version, but users should notice few differences. Please take a moment to look over your project's list for any anomalies, such as pages that you expect to see that are missing or pages that seem to have more views than expected. Note that unlike other tools, this tool aggregates all views from redirects, which means it will typically have higher numbers. (For January 2014 specifically, 35 hours of data is missing from the WMF data, which was approximated from other dates. For most articles, this should yield a more accurate number. However, a few articles, like ones featured on the Main Page, may be off).
Web tools, to replace the ones at tools:~alexz/pop, will become available over the next few weeks at toollabs:popularpages. All of the historical data (back to July 2009 for some projects) has been copied over. The tool to view historical data is currently partially available (assessment data and a few projects may not be available at the moment). The tool to add new projects to the bot's list is also available now (editing the configuration of current projects coming soon). Unlike the previous tool, all changes will be effective immediately. OAuth is used to authenticate users, allowing only regular users to make changes to prevent abuse. A visible history of configuration additions and changes is coming soon. Once tools become fully available, their toolserver versions will redirect to Labs.
If you have any questions, want to report any bugs, or there are any features you would like to see that aren't currently available on the Toolserver tools, see the updated FAQ or contact me on my talk page. Mr.Z-bot (talk) (for Mr.Z-man) 05:01, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
