News and updates for administrators from the past month (November 2017).
- Following a request for comment, a new section has been added to the username policy which disallows usernames containing emoji, emoticons or otherwise "decorative" usernames, and usernames that use any non-language symbols. Administrators should discuss issues related to these types of usernames before blocking.
- Wikimedians are now invited to vote on the proposals in the 2017 Community Wishlist Survey on Meta Wiki until 10 December 2017. In particular, there is a section of the survey regarding new tools for administrators and for anti-harassment.
- A new function is available to edit filter managers which can be used to store matches from regular expressions.
- Over the last few months, several users have reported backlogs that require administrator attention at WP:ANI, with the most common backlogs showing up on WP:SPI, WP:AIV and WP:RFPP. It is requested that all administrators take some time during this month to help clear backlogs wherever possible. It should be noted that AIV reports are not always valid; however, they still need to be cleared, which may include needing to remind users on what qualifies as vandalism.
- The Wikimedia Foundation Community health initiative is conducting a survey for English Wikipedia contributors on their experience and satisfaction level with Administrator’s Noticeboard/Incidents. This survey will be integral to gathering information about how this noticeboard works (i.e. which problems it deals with well and which problems it struggles with). If you would like to take this survey, please sign up on this page, and a link for the survey will be emailed to you via Special:EmailUser.
ArbCom 2017 election voter message
Can you see if there are any administrative actions that you can take against the user that I've referred to in the heading? I'm asking for your intervention specifically because I understand that you are an administrator and have previously interacted with you on the THAAD page which that user has also modified but in such a way that was clearly disruptive: exempting my edits against that user for the purpose of objectivity, two of that user's edits were struck out (15 November 2017 @ 01:53 and 02:03) and another edit on 22 November 2017 was reverted by you. A further analysis of that user's editing history shows that the reception to that user's edits by other editors (excluding myself for, again, the purpose of objectivity) on every page that the user has edited has been uniformly negative ("unsourced commentary"; multiple page reverts by @Kiwifist: here, here and here; "POV problems"; "Remove unsourced and out of place entry." and "Removed bullshit"). I warned the user on two occasions (here and here) to stop the disruptive editing but they have evidently been ignored; given that and the emotive nature of all of the article topics that the user has edited I would strongly suggest that decisive administrative action be taken to preempt what I foresee to be the continuation of that user's pattern of disruptive editing.
