New Wikiproject![edit]

Hello, Arctic.gnome! I saw you recently edited a page related to the Green party and green politics. There is a new WikiProject that has been formed - WikiProject Green Politics and I thought this might be something you'd be interested in joining! So please head on over to the project page and take a look! Thanks for your time. Me-123567-Me (talk) 18:26, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

Election template broken[edit]

Hi. I've come across a few cases that break {{Canadian election result/top}}. If you look at the as yet uncreated Category:Election, 1986 results by riding‏‎ (and the equivalents for 77,78, 90, 94 and 98) you'll see that it's struggling to assign a year category properly for municipal/school elections. I don't know whether you want to exclude them or develop the template to generate proper year cats, and I certainly wouldn't fiddle with a complex, well-used template like that - but I thought I'd let you know it's breaching WP:NOTRED.<g> Cheers.
