BT Home Hub[edit]

Thanks for that. Actually, I came back to the BT Home Hub page this morning to reverse my own edits because I have just found that my Type 2A Home Hub now transceives on all 13 channels. I had been using a Type 2B hub and it broadcast on all 13 channels, but then it began to malfunction (as they have a tendency to do), and so I wired up my old Type 2A hub (which had also started malfunctioning a while back) and I could only see 11 channels, but this morning I can see 13 channels - it must have been a software upgrade between now and two years ago that allows that, and it must have upgraded the software overnight. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Betathetapi545 (talkcontribs) 06:00, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Dave Benson Phillips[edit]

After receiving a friendly notice from Wikipedia, I have replaced the piece that was taken out. As Dave's manager and friend, I have tackled much wrongful information about about his career over the past few years. From 'Facebook's RIP DBP' to 'Football 365's' DBP Death Hoax. Even Wikipedia carried an item citing that Dave had worked for the adult entertainment channel, Babestation. This of course is not true. The false Dave Benson Phillips accounts that sent abusive messages to people who joined the sites, because they actually thought it was him. Link to that the years of abusive and racist telephone calls and emails to his office, phony job offers and generally referring to him as a 'retard'.

What is abundantly clear is that people believe what has been written on Wikipedia and other social information sites, and people believed what they read about Dave.

Over the years, I have have managed to get the sites to erase the harmful information about Dave, although some examples still remain. Wikipedia was my latest one to approach.

All I want to do is to write the truth about him.

What's wrong with that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by RMasters3434 (talkcontribs) 18:46, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Dave Benson Phillips, Now What?[edit]

Reply to Adambro from RMasters3434 I can see this is going to difficult. I shall take your advice and gain information from reliable sources, and not from Dave himself, his wife, family and friends, because he and they are obviously not reliable.

There are a few things to consider... In the article, there is a two-year gap. The last reported time period at the moment is 2008, then 2011 when Dave is writing shows with his wife. Question: how would YOU best describe the gap?

As for his ADHD, as I far as I know, this is well documented.

I wonder if you and your Wikipedia personnel will be so quick to throw out the the spurious claims about Dave when they start to re-surface. I can understand why Dave's wife gave up fighting for the article all those years ago...

I'll let you know when the crap starts being printed.

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)

Orphaned non-free image File:Alliance Rail GNWR logo.svg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Alliance Rail GNWR logo.svg. 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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:12, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Your administrator status on the English Wikivoyage[edit]

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc.) was adopted by community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.

You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for 2 years) on the wiki listed above. Since that wiki does not have its own rights review process, the global one applies.

If you want to keep your rights, you should inform the community of the wiki about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to 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.

If you wish to resign your rights, you can reply here or request removal of your rights on Meta.

If there is no response at all after approximately one month, stewards will proceed to remove your administrator and/or bureaucrat rights. In ambiguous cases, stewards 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 the stewards.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Your inactive bot(s)[edit]

Hello Adambro. We currently show that you are the operator on file for at least one bot account that appears to be inactive. Please see the discussion and list of bots here: Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard#Inactive bots over 5 years. If you are no longer operating your bot, no action is required - your bot will be marked as retired and have the bot flag removed. Should your bot be retired and you wish to revive it in the future, please request bot authorization at WP:BRFA. If you are still in control of your bot (including knowing its hopefully strong password) and wish to maintain the bot flag, please sign the table on the linked discussion. Thank you, — xaosflux Talk 14:41, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
