Cheif executive officer listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Cheif executive officer. Since you had some involvement with the Cheif executive officer redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Steel1943 (talk) 23:03, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for notifying me. I have commented at the discussion in support of your nomination. Cheers, -- Black Falcon (talk) 17:33, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Can you please review my article.[edit]

Hello Black Falcon, Can you please review the article: Http://

I found your on wiki and after reading your page I figured you would be open and willing to help me out.

Kind regards, J.Stefanonni VonEdit (talk) 10:41, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi User:VonEdit, I made a few edits to the article (diff). One additional item I wanted to bring to your attention is that some portions of the article appear to closely paraphrase the subject's official website. I am not fluent in Spanish, but a number of sentences in the article appear to be direct (or very close) translations of the subject's personal biography. In general, articles should summarize information from other sources instead of closely paraphrasing, which infringes on the source's copyright. Please let me know if I could offer any further assistance witht this. -- Black Falcon (talk) 05:46, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Hey Black Falcon, how have you been? Do you recall if we ever had a discussion to depopulate Category:Wikipedians of individual users? I can't seem to find it anywhere, although I know we had several depopulate noms and it would have made sense for this to be one of them. In any event, that category is overrun with userpages. Do you think we need to have a formal discussion somewhere to do this, or do you think we should just go ahead and depopulate it? Obviously it isn't doing anyone any good for people to be in this parent category. VegaDark (talk) 08:38, 15 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.
