Your article has been nominated for deletion (again)[edit]

See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Angela Beesley Starling (2nd nomination). Everymorning talk 17:42, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

It would be useful if you could verify if your preference for deletion still stands, so we know whether WP:BLPREQUESTDELETE is relevant. CorporateM (Talk) 10:52, 26 February 2015 (UTC)


Dear Angela, since it is hard to contact you why you do not DELETE ALL the pages previous created ? Including you. That would be an advantage. My page created was for history since it was the first Linux User Group abroad Finland, the first big Debugging group for hardware and Software. The First Linux UserGroup in Antwerp who helped Linus Torvalds in the first years before firms came into the picture. Thanks for Deleting this wonderfull historic info!!! I have still a lot of historic info but since you like to delete I must save my info to the local Archive not consultative via internet ! Congratulations....

Patrick.Op de Beeck at gmail, Linux Pioneer, Chairman of ALUG till 2005

Hello Patrick. I think you are referring to the ALUG article, which I deleted in 2011. Articles on the English Wikipedia need to be written in English and need to meet certain notability requirements and reliable sources would be required if you wanted to recreate an article on this topic. You may want to read the help page about writing your first article. Angela (talk) 11:32, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Award — Platinum Star[edit]

Hi Angela. I recently returned to Wikipedia after an 8-year hibernation ... only to find that you don't seem to be much around these days. But for all the work you did for so many years, I want to award you the Platinum Star. I was going to put it on your user page, but I'll respect your privacy there:-)

This editor is a Master Editor II and is entitled to display this Platinum Editor Star.

Thanks, David! I'll add it here. Angela (talk) 09:59, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Implementation of Wikipedia:Bureaucrats#Bureaucrat activity requirements[edit]

You are receiving this message because you are listed at Wikipedia:Bureaucrats#Former bureaucrats. Writ Keeper pointed out that these users were not directly notified of the community discussion ending August 2015, where consensus was reached to remove the bureaucrat permissions of users who have not participated in bureaucrat activity for three years.

As of 1 October 2015, any former bureaucrat who has not participated in bureaucrat activity for three years that wishes their bureaucrat permissions restored will need to request reinstatement at RFB.

If you intend to return to bureaucrat activity, please request restoration of permissions before 1 October 2015 or three years passes since your last bureaucrat activity, whichever is later.

To assist with the implementation of this requirement, please see Wikipedia:Bureaucrat activity. Modeled after Wikipedia:Inactive administrators and similar to that process, the log page will be created on 1 September 2015. Bureaucrats who have not met the activity requirements as of that date will be notified by email (where possible) and on their talk page to advise of the pending removal.

If the notified user does not return to bureaucrat activity and the permissions are removed, they will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFB. Removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon the affected user in any way.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. –xenotalk 20:53, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

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.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Angela. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
