Baffin, Unorganized[edit]

Hi! I couldn't help but notice you undid one of my revisions: renaming "Unorganized Baffin" back to "Baffin, Unorganized". Yes, it is the "official" StatsCan name, but it seems to be agreed that a natural language title is preferred over StatsCan's index-card titling. You are welcome to join the (still active for some reason) discussion here. FUNgus guy (talk) 04:27, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

RE: unpublished “Superhero Landing” pages Can you help me out a little bit, I think I've got the point (notability), but what verifiable source(s) I can use (except IMDb, of course) while this title is in production? I had found the series Fandom Community (http://superherolanding.wikia.com), there is a lot more info about the series than on official IMDb page, but I don't think that is qualify for verifiable source to Wikipedia. Adrew Knowl (talk) 20:19, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

RE: Superhero Landing, draft space[edit]

Thank you for clarification, I'd read (here, before starting to create a draft) that the TV Show must have (at least) IMDb page (be listed there) to have their own Wikipedia page. Ok, at least I had practicing in wiki Adrew Knowl (talk) 18:40, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Thanks for reviewing Christina Quarles, CambridgeBayWeather.

Unfortunately Vexations has just gone over this page again and unreviewed it. Their note is:

This page has a serious CoI issue. I reviwed another version of it as an autobiography.

To reply, leave a comment on Vexations's talk page.

Vexations (talk) 22:04, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Vexations I'm sorry but I'm not sure I understand you. I didn't review that page. I never do page reviews. I found this so I went to Wikipedia:Christina Quarles and moved it over while suppressing the redirect. I then restored the history but at no time did I perform a review. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 22:30, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
it's not a huge deal, but since you're an admin, you autopatrolled Christina Quarles. I just think there are some CoI issues that needed to be dealt with. Vexations (talk) 00:17, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

Ah. Ok thanks. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 00:22, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

Brexit[edit]

Thanks for your recent addition of protection on this article. Just FYI I made a recent second attempt at this ANI submission only for it to be picked up by trolls rather than an administrator. See also this recent diff and this one aimed at other editors.

On a related note I think this RfC may have run its course, could you possibly close it? Thanks. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 15:15, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

The Vintage Feminist. Sorry but I don't really understand the whole discussion. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 15:53, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
CambridgeBayWeather. Do you mean the RfC? --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 18:20, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Yes. I'm confused about where the Section 13 comes in when it starts off originally about Clause 9. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 18:23, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
CambridgeBayWeather. There's the theory of what this is about – and then there is the reality.
  • The theory: Acts of Parliament start off as Bills. Amendments are added / removed which affects the numbering ("note 1" of this in the second paragraph of the lead section) points this out. The thing to look at is the text of clause 9 versus the text of clause 13 which I placed in 2 collapsible boxes on the talk page diff (bottom of page). A simple matter of WP:COMMONNAME and WP:COMMONSENSE.
  • The reality: The UK is due to leave the EU on 29th March 2019. Imagine if the Brexit negotiations between the UK and the EU were to break down – "no deal" – the government revealed the plans it has in place for such a scenario last week "What do the government's Brexit "no-deal" papers reveal?" (BBC). Under the "meaningful vote" the government has to go back to parliament and say what its going to do.
Dominic Grieve and pro-Remainers wanted enough time to discuss it properly in parliament before 29th March. All the speakers in this clip are from the Conservative Party, Grieve first and between 3.30 mins to 4.20 mins the Solicitor General, Robert Buckland speaking on behalf of the government and agreeing to tweak the amendment.
Leavers do not want the meaningful vote to exist, and if it has to then it should not have a Wikipedia page. Other obscure uses of the term have been actively sought (diff and my reply diff). No deal could precipitate a second referendum, there's an attempt to censor that too Talk:European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018#Avoid POV promoting campaign for a second vote and Template talk:United Kingdom in the European Union#Genesis and branding of the Brexit (also see People's Vote and The Independent's "final say" campaign and vandal's diff). They also do not want the Wikipedia page for European Parliament election, 2019 (United Kingdom) see Talk:European Parliament election, 2019 (United Kingdom)#Just. Delete. The. Page.
Further info: Grieve being interviewed on Sky News, a few days later Grieve backed a second referendum "Brexit: Dominic Grieve backs new referendum as 'sensible way' out of Britain's political crisis" (The Independent).
At the weekend (Sun 27th August) the Press Association reported that, according to a leaked memo, People's Vote were attempting to secure a motion calling for a second referendum at the 2018 Labour Party conference, Campaigners seek motion on second Brexit vote at Labour conference that would make it Labour Party policy to pursue a second Brexit vote. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 01:04, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – September 2018[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (August 2018).

Administrator changes

added None
removed AsterionCrisco 1492KFKudpungLizRandykittySpartaz
renamed Optimist on the runVoice of Clam

Interface administrator changes

added AmorymeltzerMr. StradivariusMusikAnimalMSGJTheDJXaosflux

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a "stop-gap" discussion, six users have temporarily been made interface administrators while discussion is ongoing for a more permanent process for assigning the permission. Interface administrators are now the only editors allowed to edit sitewide CSS and JavaScript pages, as well as CSS/JS pages in another user's userspace. Previously, all administrators had this ability. The right can be granted and revoked by bureaucrats.

Technical news

  • Because of a data centre test you will be able to read but not edit the wikis for up to an hour on 12 September and 10 October. This will start at 14:00 (UTC). You might lose edits if you try to save during this time. The time when you can't edit might be shorter than an hour.
  • Some abuse filter variables have changed. They are now easier to understand for non-experts. The old variables will still work but filter editors are encouraged to replace them with the new ones. You can find the list of changed variables on mediawiki.org. They have a note which says Deprecated. Use ... instead. An example is article_text which is now page_title.
  • Abuse filters can now use how old a page is. The variable is page_age.

Arbitration

  • The Arbitration Committee has resolved to perform a round of Checkuser and Oversight appointments. The usernames of all applicants will be shared with the Functionaries team, and they will be requested to assist in the vetting process. The deadline to submit an application is 23:59 UTC, 12 September, and the candidates that move forward will be published on-wiki for community comments on 18 September.

Protection[edit]

Sir, List of highest-grossing Indian films need extended-protection as some auto-confirmed users are making problematic changes. Unlike other film industries, Indian cinema don't have any trusted box office tracking services and collections are often exaggerated. Any merely auto-confirmed fan-account can add content with challengeable references. Recently, user Mollywood.lover (apparently a single-purpose a/c) added a disputed addition ignoring former long-standing discussions against it on talk page. It was after those discussions were cleaned by an archive bot that this user deceptively came back to add it with same challenged references. Similar unverified edits are common in that page.137.97.117.151 (talk) 12:45, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Recovering a deleted page[edit]

Hello, I just wanted to (re)create the page for Egzon Bejtullai (which was previously deleted as at that time he did not meet the requirements, but he now made a debute for the Macedonian national football team) and when I clicked to create the page it said that if I want to reactivate the old one I should message you. So, Id like to ask you to either reactivate or help me on how the rules go and how can I reopen his profle. Greetings Msb73505 (talk) 10:51, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Msb73505 I have restored the page as it was a PROD. It's now at Egzon Bejtullai. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 21:50, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
CambridgeBayWeather wow that was fast. Thanks a lot for the help! :) Will update the page now and add the info about his debut for the national team.

Animasia Studio Protection Removal[edit]

Hi,

I saw that 3 years ago you locked and protected this page from being recreated over and over again. I now request permission to create this page again. I did disclose that I am a paid employee of Animasia Studio on my userpage but I hope that I can make this work as well. I have created a draft for the page and am wondering the best way to submit it as I am a recent autoconfirmed user. I hope you understand.

Thanks and regards,

Yusuf — Preceding unsigned comment added by YusufAnimasia (talkcontribs) 06:35, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

YusufAnimasia. What you should do is create Draft:Animasia Studio, making sure to use sources that have nothing to do with the company, and then submit it for review. There is Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation and Wikipedia:Articles for creation. Hope that helps. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 15:05, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Appreciate the fast reply, I have submitted a draft. Thanks for your help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by YusufAnimasia (talkcontribs) 02:52, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

I have another question, I have submitted a draft. How long does it normally take to review? Just wondering for reference or future reference. Thanks YusufAnimasia (talk) 02:24, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Recent Page Protection - The Apprentice (UK series thirteen)[edit]

I have just noticed that this article has been placed under protection because of an editing dispute. I like to point out that me and another editor attempted to edit these articles to remove Original Research from them, by replacing the information in section Episodes, with an Episode Table. However, another editor disputed this on grounds that they could not justify - rather than use common sense, they claimed there was no condensed episode summary, instead of providing a summary themselves, and claiming that changes should be brought to the talkpage of the article, when the suggestions were being made within an AfD for the article in question. They even had the nerve to give me an edit warning when they were involved in this themselves.

I'm was in the process of sorting out the episode table with condensed episode summaries, per MOS:TVPLOT, last night, and saved it into my Sandbox. I was hoping to finish it off and put it in, so as to maintain the notability of the article was sound, rather than a mess with all the OR in it.GUtt01 (talk) 08:04, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

GUtt01. Have you discussed this with all concerned at Talk:The Apprentice (UK series thirteen)? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 17:54, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

The 1st Seoul Awards[edit]

The full award name is "The Seoul Awards" though. See: https://theseoulawards.com/screening/institution. 1st The Seoul Awards is correct or "The 1st The Seoul Awards" would be correct for the inaugural ceremony. And now that there are two award ceremonies, I rewrote the page The Seoul Awards like how the main award page APAN Star Awards contains the main award winners. Not sure what's the problem with it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Transformal (talkcontribs) 00:48, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

And now that you restored the page, The 1st Seoul Awards and The Seoul Awards has the exact same content. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Transformal (talkcontribs) 00:50, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Transformal. The problem is that you moved The Seoul Awards and then re-wrote it. In doing so erased the contributions of other editors. What you should have done was created the 1st The Seoul Awards and at the same time updated The Seoul Awards. You can still do that but don't move stuff. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 01:01, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Ah ok, thanks for the clarification. I will take note of it the next time I edit pages. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Transformal (talkcontribs) 01:05, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Transformal. I think I got it back with the correct history in the correct place. Are you sure that the correct English title is 1st The Seoul Awards and not The 1st Seoul Awards? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 01:09, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

I found a reliable English source (Korea Herald) here: [1]. So yea I think the correct name is "first The Seoul Awards". Transformal (talk) 01:13, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Transformal Sounds good. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 01:32, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Dussehra (film)[edit]

Hi, any thoughts about what can be done at Dussehra (film)? We seem to have an IP hopper there who is insisting on changing the spellings - there have been at least three attempts since yesterday. I've put a note on the article talk but I don't think they're going to see it.

I have checked the existing sources, such as they are, and the spellings of the film name and producer etc as used by me seem to align with them. Indeed, I think we once had an article for the producer using "Hoshing" as the spelling, around the time when people were spamming umpteen articles related to the film, several of which were deleted. - Sitush (talk) 16:19, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Sitush. I've semi-protected it for a week. Let me know if it resumes after that. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 21:12, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
OK, thanks very much. The anon was also claiming that the film is released later this month; hopefully things will settle down soon after that. - Sitush (talk) 01:45, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Well, people are still making unsourced changes, despite the semi-protection. - Sitush (talk) 09:13, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Urgent Semi-Protection request - The Apprentice (UK series fourteen)[edit]

I would like to request urgent Semi-Protection on this article - some joker of an IP User thinks its funny to return the article to a state where it can be allowed to take in an influx of OR and favour fans of the respective programme, when consensus has swayed towards turning away from that and removing such content.GUtt01 (talk) 21:36, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

GUtt01. Semi-protected for a week. Let me know if it resumes after that. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 21:41, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I will do that, if it is the case. Hopefully the joker will not attempt that. I'll leave a HIDDEN TXT message advising editors not to revert the layout in the Episodes section per consensus over the issues highlighted in a recent AfD of that page and several others for the respective programme. As far as I'm concerned, the table and charts concerning episode results can be altered; the episodes section can just list Episode title, airdate, viewing figures (when available), and the Short Sum for it.GUtt01 (talk) 21:45, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Info/Bio Change For Markle, Meghan a Retired Film And Television Actress[edit]

Good evening CambridgeBayWeather.

Do you know anything about a current member of the UK royal family named Meghan Markle? She used to be an actress who was best known as Rachel Zane in the USA Network drama series Suits from June 5, 2011 to April 25, 2018.

On the night of August 30 I went to her talk page and typed a note about getting her info changed but a user told me to refrain from making comments about modifying a page.

Instead of her article saying that she is "an American-born member of the British royal family and a former film and television actress. Markle was born in Los Angeles, and is of mixed-race heritage" it should be changed into "an American member of the British royal family. Prior to her marriage to Prince Harry, she was best known for her role as Rachel Zane in the USA Network drama series Suits from 2011 to 2018. Born in Los Angeles, Markle is of mixed-race heritage."

Another admin who goes by the name of Amory deleted it because she dubbed it as a "spammy threat."

Reply back to me as quick as you can. Source: en.wikipedia.org/w/Meghan_Duchess_of_Sussex

Good night,

67.81.163.178 (talk) 00:17, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Well I don't see that Amory or Amorymeltzer has said anything to you at all. Also what Safiel was referring to when the said "Additionally, please refrain from making comments unrelated to improving an article on talk pages. "was the "Lastly, tomorrow marks the 21st anniversary of Princess Diana's passing. God rest her soul." comment. They didn't tell you to not make the other request. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 01:06, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
Oh that was on her talk page. She can do what she wants with it. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 01:09, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Query - Do's and Don'ts with Short Summaries of Episode Tables[edit]

Hi, could you help me out with something? I want to avoid a rather difficult disagreement on the Short Sums of Episode Tables that I am having with another editor, progress into an edit war, by knowing what Short Sums should be consisting of for a Non-Fiction, Reality Show. My argument is that for episodes of The Apprentice, they should outline key details, give a brief insight of what candidates dealt with and such like, but not giving out specific details - instead, giving a basic description, per WP:TVPLOT. Their argument is that there should be details of specific scenes in the episodes, which I don't agree to, and his recent argument to a reversion I made is to ask why his is not neutral, favouring fans, and why I should act like I want to be "hush-hush" to nonfans of the show.

Block Request - IP User 42.3.186.45[edit]

Could you put a block on this IP User, as I just found out that they have resumed a minor bit of disruptive editing on Britain's Got Talent (series 8), believing it wouldn't be noticed after having been blocked for a month from August, until near the end of September about over a week ago. They have been making a minor change in information that goes against what is stated by a provided citation - they keep changing the results for two semi-finalists, switching who was 8th and who was 9th in one of the semi-finals, not giving any reason for the change, and clearly not seeing the citation at all and noting that it states otherwise.

Rowley Island[edit]

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be searchable, but you can manually look it up using Statistics Canada's GeoSearch function.

The census block that covers the remainder of the island (as well as the Melville Peninsula, half of Baffin Island and other nearby islands) has a total population of 0. -- Earl Andrew - talk 13:39, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

2019 MotoGP Season Page[edit]

Thank you for protecting the 2019 MotoGP season page because of persistent vandalism. (I just don't understand why people try to put up unsourced material).

However, I noticed that you didn't actually revert the latest vandalism before you protected the page.

Yes, it is generally accepted that the plan at BQR is for Tito Rabat to stay with the team and for Karel Abraham to take Xavier Simeon's seat. But, because Simeon's contract was announced as a 2 year deal in September 2017 (as per the reference), we have to base the table on what has been officially announced. (Also, Rabat's current injury is putting doubts on whether he is able to return).

So, could you revert it so that Xavier Simeon is listed for BQR rather than Tito Rabat.

Keep up the good work!

Recent Observation on Wikipedia - November 2018[edit]

Hi there, I like to ask, if possible, if you could put some semi-protection on Anthony McPartlin for about a week - there's been a couple of IP users over the past few days who decided to vandalise the article in a rather childish manner. GUtt01 (talk) 10:55, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello, CambridgeBayWeather! Having an article declined at Articles for Creation can be disappointing. If you are wondering why your article submission was declined, please post a question at the Articles for creation help desk. If you have any other questions about your editing experience, we'd love to help you at the Teahouse, a friendly space on Wikipedia where experienced editors lend a hand to help new editors like yourself! See you there! K.e.coffman (talk) 01:18, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
K.e.coffman. I'm not disappointed because it wasn't really me that was tagging it. See User talk:CambridgeBayWeather#Animasia Studio Protection Removal I was just doing it to help a new user. Perhaps the Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Helper script needs tweaking so that it gives the user the opportunity to message the correct person rather than the one adding the review tag. Also, I think I'll pass on the Teahouse invite as I'm not a great tea drinker. If there was a coffeehouse similar to the ones I used to frequent in my youth in London I would certainly attend but I think they would be far to social for Wikipedia.

Speedy deletion nomination of Dr.Prathap Kumar[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Dr.Prathap Kumar, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which pages can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

CambridgeBayWeather My bad, I was putting a csd on Dr pratap kumar page using Twinkle , but the redirect was put in the time gap between me opening tw and submitting tags. Daiyusha (talk) 10:15, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Daiyusha. No problem. I didn't delete the main article as I'm fixing moves right now. Probably should go though. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 10:18, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes please delete the main article. If you look in the history, myself and SamHolt6 have actually been having a problem with this editor and their promotional pages. First they created a totally promotional, copyrighted version of this person [4] and then (on the now recently deleted page) they claim they own the website, indicating a COI. Sam left them a note and moved it to draft but they have now re-created the page (as you can see). As it is now early morning where both Sam and I are we were going to wait for the morning but I couldn't sleep so here I am again. Oh well, there's worse things to be addicted to. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 10:20, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

We're having a problem with persistent long-term IP vandalism at Trisquel. Warning the person repeatedly has not had any effect. Could you please "semi" it for at least a month? Thank you. - Ahunt (talk) 12:53, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Pacific Coach Lines / YVR Skylynx[edit]

Please note that PCL will stop operating the Skylynx service on 11th December 2018.

YVR Skylynx is the name of the new operator that will operate the service from 12th December 2018 and is not related to PCL.

Please can you undo the change to link PCL to YVR Skylynx as they are separate companies.

Note that "Skylynx" brand is actually owned by Vancouver Airport!

Many thanks,

Simon — Preceding unsigned comment added by Simonhill11 (talkcontribs) 08:06, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Simonhill11. It needs a reference and it isn't 12 December yet. The Pacific Coach Lines site still indicates that it is running via YVR Skylynx. By the way which article did you mean, the two I mentioned or Squamish, British Columbia or Whistler, British Columbia. Right now it looks like a bit of spamming for the Skylynx company. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 08:12, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

To explain further

Pacific Coach Lines operates "Whistler Skylynx" until 11th December 2018- Their website is https://www.pacificcoach.com/bus-vancouver-to-whistler/yvr-whistler-skylynx/

"YVR Skylynx" is the new operator and we have won this contract from Vancouver Airport for six years from 12th December- Our website which we have just set up in the last month is https://www.yvrskylynx.com/

We are not related in anyway. Please can you remove the reference that PCL operates "YVR Skylynx".

Thanks for your input,

Simon — Preceding unsigned comment added by Simonhill11 (talkcontribs) 08:23, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Simonhill11 Which article though? Right now the PCL site says they go to YVR/Whistler/Squamish. If you tell me the article it can be changed to read that as of 12 December the service will be operated by Skylynx. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 08:31, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Hey Cambridge,

Reference article is http://www.yvr.ca/en/passengers/transportation/long-distance-scheduled-buses/whistler

This makes clear the differences between the operators switching over.

Hope this makes sense!

Many thanks,

Simon

Request for Kerblam![edit]

Could you or another admin go into the revision history of the respective article, and cross out several IP edits that were made, which had been done as an attack on an editor? The page has recently received semi-protection, and I just want to cross out any history parts regarding the IP's vandalising edits. Thanks. GUtt01 (talk) 09:10, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Page Protection Request[edit]

Hi there. Could you place The Apprentice (UK series 14) under semi-protection until the end of December? We got some IP Users making unhelpful edits to this article that need to be curbed. GUtt01 (talk) 19:58, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

GUtt01. Gave it a month. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 20:54, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi, can you put The Witchfinders under page protection? We got an IP user vandalising it with slander against another editor. It's my belief it's Hyper121, who caused this trouble to them before, and is using IPs to circumvent a Indefinite Block against them to commit slanderous attacks upon them. User being victimised is AlexTheWhovian, who doesn't deserve this. GUtt01 (talk) 16:36, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

{{u:GUtt01||. Semi the page, revision delete the comments and blocked the IP. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 16:55, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

We need page protection on It Takes You Away ASAP! Vandalising harassment attacks on AlexTheWhovian have been committed on this page. I think we also need to highlight the matter on the Admin noticeboard - we need to alert Admins that this editor is being targeted with harassment and trolling attacks, and it is possible someone is doing so after being blocked for this behaviour.

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a request for comment, the Mediation Committee is now closed and will no longer be accepting case requests.
  • A request for comment is in progress to determine whether members of the Bot Approvals Group should satisfy activity requirements in order to remain in that role.
  • A request for comment is in progress regarding whether to change the administrator inactivity policy, such that administrators "who have made no logged administrative actions for at least 12 months may be desysopped". Currently, the policy states that administrators "who have made neither edits nor administrative actions for at least 12 months may be desysopped".
  • A proposal has been made to temporarily restrict editing of the Main Page to interface administrators in order to mitigate the impact of compromised accounts.

Technical news

Arbitration

Miscellaneous

  • In late November, an attacker compromised multiple accounts, including at least four administrator accounts, and used them to vandalize Wikipedia. If you have ever used your current password on any other website, you should change it immediately. Sharing the same password across multiple websites makes your account vulnerable, especially if your password was used on a website that suffered a data breach. As these incidents have shown, these concerns are not pure fantasies.
  • Wikipedia policy requires administrators to have strong passwords. To further reinforce security, administrators should also consider enabling two-factor authentication. A committed identity can be used to verify that you are the true account owner in the event that your account is compromised and/or you are unable to log in.

IP Troll detected[edit]

There's an IP trolling the editor I mentioned to you before, who seems to think he deserves being harrassed. People may be entitled to making their own opinions, but if you dare say someone should be harrassed for something that was not there fault at all, and is being purely victimised, then you are as bad as them - this is purely my opinion. IP is 86.187.169.80. GUtt01 (talk) 10:32, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

GUtt01. I blocked the IP and semi protected the talk page. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 11:24, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

I think we have a serious problem with IPs targetting AlextheWhovian. There is persistent attempts to slander and victimise him, and common link seems to be towards pages he edits covering Doctor Who. GUtt01 (talk) 21:10, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

GUtt01 Did you see Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#Lookin for a range block please? I guess a range block can't work. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 22:09, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Yeah. As soon as you block an IP, the individual could just get another allocated to them, and keep on going. It does seriously raise a question - how can Wikipedia truly tackle harassment, slander, and vandalism, if it maintains an open policy of editing for those without accounts? If someone tries to vandalise and gets their registered account blocked, at least trying to circumvent it with another account makes it easier to spot the behaviour and note the account as a sock puppet.

List of islands by area[edit]

Hi Cambridge, I noticed you reverted my change on the number of countries on the island of North-South America. While the statistic states that there are 35 countries within the American realms, some of these are Caribbean or other island countries, and so are not part of the landmass of North/South America. There are 10 countries in mainland North America and 13 in South America:

So, by my count, 23. Please let me know if this clears up the misunderstanding. Thanks, RedPanda25 22:31, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

RedPanda25. Sorry about that. Chalk it up to me being stupid that day. I just rolled it back. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 22:47, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for understanding, but I have another question: should disputed territories such as Kosovo and Somaliland be included in the count for Afro-Eurasia? Also, I don't know how they got the number of 14 dependencies, as the only ones in mainland Afro-Eurasia are Hong Kong and Macau . I'm going to check if the same mistake was made for that landmass (and I have a feeling it was). Regards, RedPanda25 01:00, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

A cup of tea for you![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg How's the Weather? Hamster Sandwich (talk) 22:55, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Hamster Sandwich. Thanks for the tea. It's −30 °C (−22 °F) with a wind chill of -43. Still a lot better than the −38 °C (−36 °F) and -52 wind cill we had a couple of weeks ago. How is where you are? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 23:24, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Uh... Warmer than there! 0C trending to -8 over the next few days. Presently a miserable cold mist. I keep seeing your name pop up on my watched pages and thought I'd drop a note here. The Martin Hartwell article finally resembles something people could read. I have been recently pleased to see a few articles I created are at least "B" class now. Very satisfying, and I think the first ever article I wrote here Angus McAskill is a much better joint as well.
At the risk of inviting opprobrium, (which I think is something I can completely disregard after getting the stick the other day) I would say that after a week or so back in the saddle, the only thing I'm lacking at the moment is the "See Recent Changes" tool. I'll ask for it back in a month or something. No need for me to ever block or even rollback when there are so many people on top of things.
I mentioned on my little user space that I have certain friends in the project who I have worked with, and you are certainly one of them. Glad to see you have remained so engaged in the project! Best regards, Hamster Sandwich (talk) 23:38, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much. It's always good to see old friends back again. Welcome back. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 00:36, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Question: Would you have acess to an image of a Beech 18 at YCB that we could use for the Hartwell article? Best regards, Hamster Sandwich (talk) 20:58, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
Hamster Sandwich No I don't. I can't remember the last time I saw one. There are only two Canadian civil register Beech 18 at Commons, File:C-FWJC Beech Expeditor 3T Central Mountain Air YVR 11APR93 (6926180007).jpg and File:Beechcraft D18S CF-QPD (16389694212).jpg. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 21:36, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for that... Having one on the field at YCB would have been too perfect. I think that article could be bumped up from start class at this point as well. It's pretty well complete. There can't be much more to add to that than there is now. Reading the note that Hartwell left his son, when he thought the end was coming... The truth of a man at the end.... "I was good in my heart" Reminds me of Mawson's Ordeal. Cheers man, Hamster Sandwich (talk) 22:27, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

User failing to heed warnings on vandalism[edit]

This user, Dboora, has been warned about vandalizing Wikipedia articles, and it seems they've been cheeky to not heed this. Could you make them learn that this behaviour is not acceptable? GUtt01 (talk) 22:21, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Actually, I think you better block the editor in question - I don't believe they are using it for anything other than vandalism, based on their contributions on Wikipedia. They have done nothing at all than this. GUtt01 (talk) 22:36, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
GUtt01 I see they haven't edited in a while. See what happens. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 09:30, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
Caught them doing the same thing again tiday - they vandalised an article with personal opinion. They are not doing anything constructive at all.

Criteria for PP?[edit]

Hi. At [5] you declined to protect the page with "Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection". I stated "Of the last couple dozen edits [in about 3.5 months], only one was possibly legitimate". After skimming WP:PP etc. (which are very long), I don't see any real guidance on what is considered "enough". I was about to propose semi-protection on Robin Williams on similar grounds, but it's not as severe as the other article. What metric should I use to keep from making requests that will be declined? Is there something else I can do, other than wasting time having to watch pages so closely? —[AlanM1(talk)]— 00:17, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
