  • A recent query shows that only 16% of administrators on the English Wikipedia have enabled two-factor authentication. If you haven't already enabled it please consider doing so.
  • Cookie blocks should be deployed to the English Wikipedia soon. This will extend the current autoblock system by setting a cookie for each block, which will then autoblock the user after they switch accounts under a new IP.
  • A bot will now automatically place a protection template on protected pages when admins forget to do so.

Roger Ebert[edit]

Please reduce the protection level on User talk:Rebert. The guideline you cited says it should be editable (semi-protection would be appropriate, given Ebert's public profile). Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 23:57, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Pigsonthewing. Done. Not sure why I fully protected in the first place. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 13:35, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Duncans Mills, California[edit]

I was told you know how to add a weather box to an article. If you are able to lend a hand at Duncans Mills, California, or could direct me to another editor, I'd appreciate it. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 23:19, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Magnolia677. I put one in based on the data already in the article. Unfortunately the source in the article, http://www.weather.com/search/partner?Keywords=DUncans+Mills+weather+averages, does not give any information. There might be some information at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration but I haven't found it yet. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 00:14, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
Much appreciated! Weather boxes are very tricky. I found some excellent historic photos of Sonoma County, California, and have been cleaning up many articles as I add the photos. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 00:27, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

2017 Olathe, Kansas shooting[edit]

Thank you for accepting the page protection request, but Please revert to the previous version of the page, AFAIA it contains no explicit WP:BLPCRIME violations and it was the the long standing version of the page before the mass removal sans discussion of well sourced contents(esp the Reaction section) by user: MardeKayle. you can check the history of the page it was created by me and I contributed a lot of content on it.Redhat101 (talk) 23:20, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Redhat101 It would be best to take it to the talk page. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 23:31, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
I mean i requested protection for that version, if you can, Please review it. it doesn't violate WP:BLPCRIME guideline, one victim is deceased so it will not apply to him and pages for comparable incident like Quebec City mosque shooting are similar in structure/content. Redhat101 (talk) 00:07, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Hello CambridgeBayWeather, I'm not entirely sure why this was protected like this, as the issue is with one editor who is reverting changes that are being made in accordance with WP:BLP. I think it would be better to take this issue up with Redhat101, rather that edit protect the entire article. It should also be noted, that reverts made to remove contentious information about a BLP, in accordance with BLP policy are not subject to 3RR and other revert policies, as I am sure you are already well aware. Thanks.  {MordeKyle  00:23, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

I requested you to remove only the Infringing content but instead you removed the entire well sourced part of 'Reaction' section of the Page, which doesn't contain any BLP information, also one victim is deceased and his name was widely reported in media so guidelines for BLP will not apply to him and pages for comparable incident like Quebec City mosque shooting are similar in structure/content.Redhat101 (talk) 00:35, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
BLP applies also to recently deceased persons (WP:BDP). 69.165.196.103 (talk) 21:11, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Protection question[edit]

CambridgeBayWeather, I have a question about University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Can we either upgrade the protection or do something with the edit warring that is going on there? I'm tired of seeing it... we also have a possible conflict of interest as well... Thanks, Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 04:47, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Corkythehornetfan. I've upped to extended confirmed. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 06:31, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 07:11, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Draft:Luxy[edit]

--Dinghanliang (talk) 07:17, 15 March 2017 (UTC) Hi, I am quite confuse to who I should reply to now. Also, I do want to enquire on my page. Is that the end of my page? I can't even edit anything related to this anymore? Thank you, hope to see your reply.

Dinghanliang. Did you see Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Draft:Luxy? You need to show how the company/app is notable. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 07:48, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

--Dinghanliang (talk) 08:33, 16 March 2017 (UTC) Can I still modify or edit the article to make it more notable rather than more of an advertisment? Thank you for your efficient reply!

Dinghanliang. You could do it in your own sandbox. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 16:01, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

--Dinghanliang (talk) 06:56, 23 March 2017 (UTC)Hi, I've already edited my article again and tried uploading it to my own sandbox. But it stated that "A page with this title has previously been moved or deleted." What should I do. Thank you!

Dinghanliang. If it is your own sandbox there isn't a problem with creating it again. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 12:43, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

Thank you for helping me take care of the vandal on Wikipedia. Xyaena /\ Shoot a reply! 12:57, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Protection needed[edit]

Greetings. An attempt of adding controversial content to this article seems to have started an edit war there. I believe your help is needed to protect the page and stop the conflict, as the users don't seem to have reached a consensus. Dolchstoß (talk) 10:36, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

My (non-admin, obviously) opinion: doesn't look like one yet. 69.165.196.103 (talk) 13:17, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
Dolchstoß. I would have to agree with the IP (sorry I can't ping you) here. Discussion is ongoing but could do with more input. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 16:02, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

UALR does have lots of corruptions[edit]

I did plenty of investigation on the cheating scandal. UALR does have lots of corruptions. Biris' cheating scandal is one of them. Biris was hired with the lowest credential in the candidate pool because of political reason. That is the reason the university is not among top 100 national universities. Keeping the "cheating scandal" at least will give the administrators a warming. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mpasar (talkcontribs) 15:09, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Mpasar. This should be on the article talk page. I'll point out that the purpose of Wikipedia is not to give administrators warnings. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 16:02, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Z-numbers[edit]

Hey, just curious, were you going to protect all of the Z numbers or just {{Z179}}? Primefac (talk) 19:54, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

Primefac. Whoops. Thanks. I think I got them all now. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 20:14, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

This does not bode well[edit]

Here is a new diff by the editor who is starting to switch anon IP's at will on the Nadal-Federer article. He guarantees more troubles. Gotta be a sockpuppet of someone... maybe User:RabidMelon but probably User:Liquid foundation? FYI I did find another English translation of the quote he was concerned about and inserted it. I can deal with the snide remarks but I wish he would work as a team member. Not sure that will ever happen. By the way, thanks for your efforts to fix this... nothing I have done to compromise seems to be enough, and I'm being yelled at by the Federer fans as well. I'm ready to throw my hands up on this one and let the article go to all the wolves on both sides. On a less prominent article I would have done so long ago.
