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. GUtt01 (talk) 23:00, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

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 [1] 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)

AlanM1. Normally several a day is needed. If there are one or two a day then pending changes but that articles editing is slow. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 09:53, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Can you tell me please why did you move my article to sandbox? It's very important and I need it to be done by tomorrow. My username is Alexandra117 and my article was Arta si arhitectura mameluca.

Thank you

Christmas tableau.jpg Happy Christmas!
Hello CambridgeBayWeather,
Early in A Child's Christmas in Wales the young Dylan and his friend Jim Prothero witness smoke pouring from Jim's home. After the conflagration has been extinguished Dylan writes that

Nobody could have had a noisier Christmas Eve. And when the firemen turned off the hose and were standing in the wet, smoky room, Jim's Aunt, Miss. Prothero, came downstairs and peered in at them. Jim and I waited, very quietly, to hear what she would say to them. She said the right thing, always. She looked at the three tall firemen in their shining helmets, standing among the smoke and cinders and dissolving snowballs, and she said, "Would you like anything to read?"

My thanks to you for your efforts to keep the 'pedia readable in case the firemen chose one of our articles :-) Best wishes to you and yours and happy editing in 2019. MarnetteD|Talk 18:22, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Please protect Silent Letter[edit]

Hi CambridgeBayWeather. You recently implemented protected status to Silent English alphabet. The same vandal that was modifying that article has been vandalizing Silent letter. The user in question is a mobile editor, so their IP address jumps around a bit. As a heads up, that user also has a history of vandalizing Hard and soft C. Can you protect Silent letter and possibly watch Hard and soft C?

My past discussions regarding the user were addressed to Home Lander, whom I have also notified about this issue. All the best, Overjive (talk) 22:11, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I have semiprotected the article and implemented a rangeblock of the user in question. --Kinu t/c 22:17, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks all. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 05:17, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Recent full protection of India article[edit]

Recently you put the article on India under full protection, but you left the disruptive edit unreverted. It's important that it be undone, as not only does it use non-MOS and non-consensus numerical expressions but at least two of the conversions are wrong ("7.5 lakh (75 million) years ago" and "over 1,200 crore (1.2 billion)...people"). Dhtwiki (talk) 22:42, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

That's because I was protecting and not taking part in a content dispute. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 08:10, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes Cambridge, but that doesn't mean to reward one User who repeatedly violates 3RR and punish others who had the decency to not engage in revert war. Please revert it to the original version and then you can protect it. --King Zebu (talk) 08:05, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
Also, what about Wikipedia:Stable version?! Clearly the version which you protected isn't stable because it represents the POV pushing by one User while violating multiple Wikipedia MOS guidelines. I urge you to use better judgement. --King Zebu (talk) 09:22, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – January 2019[edit]

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

Guideline and policy news

  1. G14 (new): Disambiguation pages that disambiguate only zero or one existing pages are now covered under the new G14 criterion (discussion). This is {{db-disambig}}; the text is unchanged and candidates may be found in Category:Candidates for speedy deletion as unnecessary disambiguation pages.
  2. R4 (new): Redirects in the file namespace (and no file links) that have the same name as a file or redirect at Commons are now covered under the new R4 criterion (discussion). This is {{db-redircom}}; the text is unchanged.
  3. G13 (expanded): Userspace drafts containing only the default Article Wizard text are now covered under G13 along with other drafts (discussion). Such blank drafts are now eligible after six months rather than one year, and taggers continue to use {{db-blankdraft}}.

Technical news

  • Starting on December 13, the Wikimedia Foundation security team implemented new password policy and requirements. Privileged accounts (administrators, bureaucrats, checkusers, oversighters, interface administrators, bots, edit filter managers/helpers, template editors, et al.) must have a password at least 10 characters in length. All accounts must have a password:
  1. At least 8 characters in length
  2. Not in the 100,000 most popular passwords (defined by the Password Blacklist library)
  3. Different from their username
User accounts not meeting these requirements will be prompted to update their password accordingly. More information is available on MediaWiki.org.
  • Blocked administrators may now block the administrator that blocked them. This was done to mitigate the possibility that a compromised administrator account would block all other active administrators, complementing the removal of the ability to unblock oneself outside of self-imposed blocks. A request for comment is currently in progress to determine whether the blocking policy should be updated regarding this change.
  • {{Copyvio-revdel}} now has a link to open the history with the RevDel checkboxes already filled in.

Arbitration

Miscellaneous

  • Accounts continue to be compromised on a regular basis. Evidence shows this is entirely due to the accounts having the same password that was used on another website that suffered a data breach. If you have ever used your current password on any other website, you should change it immediately.
  • Around 22% of admins have enabled two-factor authentication, up from 20% in June 2018. If you haven't already enabled it, please consider doing so. Regardless of whether you use 2FA, please practice appropriate account security by ensuring your password is secure and unique to Wikimedia.

Hi CambridgeBayWeather, the page 'Martha Skewermann' was recently deleted, apparently due to (A7: No credible indication of importance (individuals, animals, organizations, web content, events)) however there is definite public interest in this page as indicated by existing public interest in Martha Skewermann via her public web presence.

Discussion at Category talk:Actress filmographies#Tara Strong Filmography Should be Renamed to List of Tara Strong Performances[edit]

You're invited to join the discussion at Category talk: Actress filmographies#Tara Strong Filmography Should be Renamed to List of Tara Strong Perfomances.

However another admin by the name of Anarchyte said it will be "out of place if the article's name got changed" on his/hers talk page.

Another admin this time who goes by the name of Acroterion had a message from someone else saying that after saying " Murdoc Niccals isn't protected. The Tara Strong filmography is indefinitely protected. You can ask Ohnoitsjamie for a change." Unfortunately said admin's talk page is protected.

Lastly, some actors/actress filmographies in their respective categories have the fancier sounding naming convention of List of (name) Perfomances rather than the simple and boring (name) Filmography. Leading sentence rather be changed into "Canadian-American actress Tara Strong has done voice work for numerous animations and video games and has performed in various live action productions."

So please accept the name change. Primary source for mentioned article: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tara_Strong_Filmography.

Protection of List of Presidential Trips[edit]

Hi, I'm wondering why you've protected List of presidential_trips made by Donald Trump (2019)? I don't see any disruption among the IP edits and if there was, short-term semi-protection would seem most appropriate. Galobtter (pingó mió) 18:30, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Galobtter (talk · contribs) Because of Wikipedia:Rough guide to extended confirmed protection ("Discretionary sanctions (which can be applied to articles on a number of topics specified by ArbCom) do not explicitly include ECP.

CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 12:53, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Galobtter. See Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/American politics 2 and Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/American politics 2#Discretionary sanctions (1932 cutoff) which would include ECP. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 13:08, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
