Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC seeks to clarify whether WP:OUTING should include information on just the English Wikipedia or any Wikimedia project.
  • An RfC on WT:RfA concluded that Requests for adminship and bureaucratship are discussions seeking to build consensus.
  • An RfC proposal to make the templates for discussion (TfD) process more like the requested moves (RM) process, i.e. "as a clearinghouse of template discussions", was closed as successful.

Technical news

  • The CSD feature of Twinkle now allows admins to notify page creators of deletion if the page had not been tagged. The default behavior matches that of tagging notifications, and replaces the ability to open the user talk page upon deletion. You can customize which criteria receive notifications in your Twinkle preferences: look for Notify page creator when deleting under these criteria.
  • Twinkle's d-batch (batch delete) feature now supports deleting subpages (and related redirects and talk pages) of each page. The pages will be listed first but use with caution! The und-batch (batch undelete) option can now also restore talk pages.

Protection of Template:Deprecated template[edit]

I notice you indefinitely template-editor protected {{Deprecated template}} (protection log). However, it is not really highly used to the degree that it requires template protection; it only has 232 transclusions. Examining the page history leading up to the protection, it appears the protection was motivated by a single edit war over the icon between the two editors.

Therefore, could you lower the page protection to something lower? Semi-protection is probably fine; if edit-warring over the icon continues, extended confirmed protection can be pursued, but I don't think this will be an issue. Retro (talk | contribs) 11:31, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Walrus Island, Hudson Bay[edit]

Hi CambridgeBayWeather,

I noticed that you reverted my edits to Walrus Island (Hudson Bay, Nunavut). Do you know if there are two different Walrus Islands in Hudson Bay, in addition to the Walrus Island in Bathurst Inlet?

The page for the Sadlermiut mentions that they inhabited Walrus Island. The current source on Walrus Island (http://travelingluck.com/index.html) doesn't seem particularly encyclopedic, and I've found multiple academic sources on the Sadlermiut that indicate Walrus Island is located between Southampton Island and Coats Island in northern Hudson Bay (for example the publication that I cited from volume 4 of the Canadian Archaeological Association: "The Lake Site (KkHh-2), Southampton Island, N.W.T. and Its Position in Sadlermiut Prehistory" https://canadianarchaeology.com/caa/publications/canadian-journal-archaeology/4).

Regards, 129.97.124.64 (talk) 15:30, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

I've also copied this comment to the Walrus Island talk page so it is visible to other contributors. 129.97.124.64 (talk) 15:40, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

Remove Rollback?[edit]

Thanks for stepping in and blocking Robert K S. There's been an interesting discussion on his user page since you blocked him - and it's clear that he doesn't understand why he was blocked and what WP:VANDALISM is and isn't.

I looked at his user rights history and it looks like way back in 2009 he had pretty much the exact same issue which led to his rollback privs being revoked (Alison mentioned it in the log). I think it would serve the community better if those privileges were revoked again. Would you consider doing that again please? Toddst1 (talk) 19:00, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Whitehorse and rationale for COA[edit]

Hi! I rarely edit wiki so I don't know advanced rules. Recently I noticed that Whitehorse, Yukon page lacks of coat of arms; I added it, but I've just noticed you removed it with remark "No non-free rationale for COA." What does it mean? Is this COA's usage restricted by law?

Best wishes,

Order of Canada[edit]

That's actually the way the Order of Canada has always worked; the formal investiture ceremony doesn't actually take place until several weeks after the person's induction into the OC has been announced. But it's not the investiture ceremony that makes it official, it's the initial signing of the appointment order — for example, if a person who was in the list of new appointees named last week dies between now and their induction ceremony, they still get inducted and the insignia will be presented to a family member on their behalf. So everybody in that list of new OCs is already a member or officer or companion of the OC as of today, even if they don't have their pin yet and even if the website hasn't been updated.

Bobby Fischer article has nothing whatsoever to do with dead tv preacher Armstrong.[edit]

Sir - What are you thinking including “satan” and a tv preacher scandal into this article about Chess GREAT Bobby Fischer?!!

User:MaxBrowne2 began the edit war. It’s his own personal article after all and he’s been camped out on it for quite some time just look at his page. And if some net improvements have been made through my edits then why call upon your admin buddy to revert them all and then protect the page? Smacks of further ownership. The quote from the link in question was NOT MADE BY FISCHER but by The NY Times reporter who wrote a 2003 piece on the preachers death. Completely irrelevant to anything at all to do with this article. And what about the negative descriptive adjectives used describing the church or any church. Unless they are devil worshippers why call any church of God a church of satan!? Complete and utter nonsense to allude to this decades old sidebar to what User:MaxBrowne2 describes as an “important Chess article” in his reason to revert. User:MaxBrowne2 states he had to address my improvement edits “one at a time”, clearly demonstrating his “ownership” over ANY content improvements or Any edits in the article, then he accuses me falsely of edit warring after he agreed with my first edit to exclude the defaming descriptive negative adjectives being used describing that church. Now that edit User:MaxBrowne2 agreed needed made and was an article improvement — well it too has been reverted after User:MaxBrowne2 reaches out to his admin pal to revert and protect. I’m a new editor and I’m done playing in this all boys club - with all you fools. What in the world does a 1978 rumor of a sex scandal about a dead tv preacher Armstrong have anything at all to do with Chess, or his ability to play chess? Did Neil Armstrong and the moon landing also affect his ability to “concentrate” on the game?! Because the moon landing occurred closer to the time of his big tournament play than this preacher rumor in 1978!! Anyone who wants to keep this totally irrelevant crap in this “important” CHESS article is nutty themselves. Show me proof Fischer was ever a “member” of that church. Just because he donated money to them does not mean he ever joined up. I visited a church with a friend, one time only, and I put money in the plate when it was passed around, that did not mean I joined them every week and became a permanent member. Now, this guy here below points to another 1972 quote from a Los Angeles Times reporter “bonds of satan”?? This is a quote by the REPORTER who wrote the article, NOT FISCHER! And WTF does that have to do with Bobby Fischer directly HIMSELF!!?? The article is about Bobby Fischer, not chess. Fischer was from the mid-1960's until 1977 a member of the Worldwide Church of God. Garner Ted Armstrong was denounced by his own father in 1972 as "in the bonds of Satan" and presumably this would be troubling to any follower of the Church. If you want a relationship to chess, consider how it influenced Fischer's playing schedule at Sousse, or his decision to publish My 60 Memorable Games.

StutzTCB. First, you are at the wrong page. You should be at Talk:Bobby Fischer.
Second, your comments would be easier to read if you used paragraphs.
Third, you should sign your talk page comments using 4 tildes as in ~~~~. Fourth, I am not MaxBrowne2's admin buddy. Not sure that I have ever had any dealings with him before or not.
Sixth, he didn't ask for protection it was somebody else.
Seventh, you need to stop with edit summaries like this.:
Eighth, use the talk page of the article to discuss. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 23:42, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

CambridgeBayWeather 9th - Go sell crazy someplace else. Scold a child, not me. I’m not interested in playing with any of you schoolyard bullies anymore. It’s no wonder women don’t join and get involved as Wikipedia editors!! This is a playground for one upping adolescent boy tech nerds!

Bobby Fischer page protection[edit]

It seems kinda excessive to fully protect an article for a week don't you think? That's seven entire days where not a single person can edit the article (nor is it for a minor figure at ~2.6K views/week). It's especially ludicrous when you consider that the dispute is just between two users alone. Couldn't you just have warned them individually and then just banned whomever if necessary? We already have rules and procedures in place for edit warring. Opencooper (talk) 00:17, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Opencooper The request was here. If I thought it excessive I wouldn't have gone with a week. The only options are to block the pair or protect. Protecting forces them to the talk page and a week gives everybody time to discuss. Blocking ensures that neither side can discuss, CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 00:31, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
Personally I would've just blocked StutzTCB since they've been given a level 4 warning just a week ago and even taken to the edit warring noticeboard twice, but I'm not an admin of course :p. Sigh... I guess partial blocks can't come to enwiki soon enough. Opencooper (talk) 00:47, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

User:Opencooper you would have “personally” blocked me huh. I’ve made a handful of POSITIVE content edits to improve a total of TWO articles since I joined Wikipedia as a new editor. I’ve been mistreated and BULLIED BOTH TIMES. Look at the history of the parties “reporting” me. They’ve both been blocked for EDIT WARRING, not just “warned”. They both demonstrate a clear personal bias toward the subject matter at The Dirt (Film) and Bobby Fischer.

The well known tricks to get an admin to revert (put it back to the way they want it) then lock - “protect” the page - everyone knows about involving a third party “friend” to “request” and contact an an admin — on their behalf - to block revert or page protect. And the use of socks to accomplish the same. These editors who falsely reported me are guilty of the action they falsely accused me of, and I want to be DELETED!

Who in their right mind has the time or inclination to waste playing games which a buchnof adolescent nerds that throw a tantrum of someone makes an edit they don’t agree with!?

This is how you treat newcomers and I’m not interested in participating. Got better things to do with my time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by StutzTCB (talkcontribs) 01:37, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

The procedure you described isn't a "trick", but standard protocol when editors disagree and edit war instead of trying to establish a consensus. You've been linked this policy before, and if you read it, you'd understand. Quite frankly, I wouldn't accuse others of throwing tantrums. Part of contributing constructively on the encyclopedia is being willing to work collaboratively and following community norms for settling disputes. I'm sorry you're unwilling to do that. [P.S. Apologies CambridgeBayWeather, didn't come here to stir things up, but rather air my own annoyance, but that's what ended up happening... *shrug*] Opencooper (talk) 02:03, 14 July 2019 (UTC)


Protecting the page DOES NOT EVEN BEGIN TO ADDRESS THE TALK PAGE DISCUSSION. Blocking or threatening to block newcomers seems to be the normal protocol among more established users. How dare a newbie think they should be allowed to contribute anything. There is a clear hirarchy on one-up-man-ship. One editor is upset a newbie is “fooling around” making edits to an article he - the vet editor -favorited - so the long-standing veteran editor contacts a “friend” to then contact an admin to block revert and page protect, or reports the newbie. How does this address the issue or build consensus.

I made two positive edits Attempting to include positive content on 2 pages. I’ve been falsely accused and reported BOTH TIMES — After I discussed on the talk page. I’ve NEVER REVERTED 3 times, but someone at the Dirt (Film) fires off that “warning” to my talk page.

You fellas are so full of B.S., you stink!

Autosigned! — Preceding unsigned comment added by StutzTCB (talkcontribs) 02:23, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

StutzTCB. I realised that you were fairly new which is why I went with the protection rather than block people. I see no evidence that MaxBrowne2 contacted Dr.K. and neither did Dr.K. contact me to make the protection. The request was done at the standard page. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 04:01, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
I thought full protection was excessive, I'd already ceased editing the article and gone to the talk page like you're supposed to do. StutzTCB, please moderate your language. The purpose of the Talk page discussion is to achieve consensus, and this can't be done if you're going to throw around wild accusations. MaxBrowne2 (talk) 04:22, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
StutzTCB and MaxBrowne2. If you both agree not to change the page back again then I will remove the protection. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 04:28, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
On the other hand you've forced a discussion even if Mr Stutz doesn't want to participate in it. One week is no big deal and net result is the encyclopedia is improved. MaxBrowne2 (talk) 08:30, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Berry Head[edit]

I am trying to find some information about a settlement called Berry Head in Newfoundland. I have changed the existing article to cover the island which is not near the settlement, as I could initially find nothing to support the existence of the settlement. However it looks as if there is something in the Census for the 1920s suggesting a population of 51 or 52. Our other articles say it is near Kippens, but I can't find it on Google maps.

Any ideas?

All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 08:51, 22 July 2019 (UTC).

Rich Farmbrough No I don't know anything about it at all. Unfortunately the one person that might have, moved away from here a few months ago and doesn't have a presence on the Internet. I left a note at Wikipedia talk:Canadian Wikipedians' notice board#Berry Head, Newfoundland and Labrador Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 23:49, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Best I can offer is that according to this less than ideal source Berry Head is an old name for the town of Port au Port East. Obviously the name "Berry Head" is still in some informal local use around the Port au Port-Kippens-Stephenville area, but I'm having the same difficulty locating any actual reliable sources — even the Geographic Names Board of Canada doesn't have a listing for "Berry Head" that corresponds to Port au Port (though it has several in other parts of Newfoundland for purely geographic features but no populated places), and neither do Statistics Canada's census profiles. So there's the answer, but damned if I know what we can actually do with it. That said, if the island is also basically unsourceable besides map-verification that it exists, then I question whether it would need a Wikipedia article at all either — but in the meantime, I have changed "Berry Head" to Port au Port East in the articles where I've found it referring to a place near Kippens.

Recreation request[edit]

Good morning. There is an article i made some weeks back which was deleted and you blocked it for recreation by non-admins because of repeated recreations. However the subject i see it relevant and also because being local, i see what and who is prominent or a name that is getting attention locally thus becoming notable.

I am referring to Ashlee Nyathi page, and i am seeking your assistance in creating it because i think the last time i created it i did not structure it well and some editors were not impressed but then the way it was deleted looking at the time in research i put, it was disheartening but however i know you can make it better.

So i am kindly asking for a recreation and i will be available to assist with info.

I also noticed that the person has been featured on some new news articles since the last time the page was deleted and below are the articles;

Some of the articles from previous creation include;

With this coverage i think with your assistance in creating this page we can have a better article.

Hurungudo (talk) 07:48, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Zainab Kobra Mousavi[edit]

I deleted and fully protected this autobiography, but I see that you have, in effect, allowed recreation, presumably having not seen my edits. I don't want to wheel, so I've just removed the more obvious self-promotion and added citation tags. I've removed the obvious copyright images, I suspect that the remaining images are also copyright, but I haven't checked. Personally, I don't think this is anywhere close to article status even after my clean-up, but I'll leave that with you Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:54, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

this is her talk page history before she blanked it, with repeated speedy and prod notices, which is why I protected Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:59, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
Jimfbleak. Sorry about that. I found the thing at Zainab kobra mousavi and moved it to the capitalised version. Of course that gives no warning when you are making the move. Ah, I see there is no protection listed at Zainab Kobra Mousavi but it is possible that moving over clears the protection listing. Anyway, I'll delete again and protect both. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 09:28, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
Well that's strange. As soon as I protected your protection also shows up. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 09:31, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
I didn't realised that happened either, I wondered why you hadn't seen my protection, but when I looked the drop-down showed "protect" rather than "change protection", and it was only when I went to the next step that the protection showed. As you say, must be down to the admin move. Anyway, no harm done, thanks Jimfbleak - talk to me? 13:45, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Green in weatherbox[edit]

Of course there is no consensus on colors, although by default in humid climates I use green for rain / precipitation which I also prefer, but I do not understand why using the green precipitation day as it is clearly indistinguishable. Notice the difference:

Of course it is questionable, but I find it unlikely, I suggested using it for moisture. For snowfall I find it not logical the green, but it is distinguishable. I prefer it that way, but of course you don't have to approve of this idea. You can also open a talk topic from Weatherbox template to get feedback from more users.Kubaski (talk) 15:52, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Kubaski. I use the green for precipitation so as to stand out from the temperatures. Especially where they are cold. Take a look atCambridge Bay#Climate and this is how it looks when they are all blue. As snow is a type of precipitation it makes sense to have them the same colour.

  • Following a research project on masking IP addresses, the Foundation is starting a new project to improve the privacy of IP editors. The result of this project may significantly change administrative and counter-vandalism workflows. The project is in the very early stages of discussions and there is no concrete plan yet. Admins and the broader community are encouraged to leave feedback on the talk page.
  • The new page reviewer right is bundled with the admin tool set. Many admins regularly help out at Special:NewPagesFeed, but they may not be aware of improvements, changes, and new tools for the Curation system. Stay up to date by subscribing here to the NPP newsletter that appears every two months, and/or putting the reviewers' talk page on your watchlist.

    Since the introduction of temporary user rights, it is becoming more usual to accord the New Page Reviewer right on a probationary period of 3 to 6 months in the first instance. This avoids rights removal for inactivity at a later stage and enables a review of their work before according the right on a permanent basis.

Redirection reverting[edit]

How can you revert a redirection without any reason? I mean do you know about Bangladesh? The article named Pirojpur was a redirection to Pirojpur district, which is not suitable. Pirojpur is a city's name, and that redirected article was about the city. Great Hero32 (talk) 12:21, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Perhaps you should look at Pirojpur again and then come back an explain how I reverted the redirect. What I reverted was Pirojpur District. I reverted that because Pirojpur was a redirect to Pirojpur District and the district article could contain a link to the city but not in the form of a redirect.

Reasoning behind page protection for Template:Netflix original current series[edit]

Hi CambridgeBayWeather, hope you are doing well. I was wondering, what was the reason behind the indefinite page protecting the Netflix original current series template? I did not see any vandalism or issues that would usually warrant such an action. If possible, would you be able to explain your reasoning via a response? Thanks. Elainasla (talk) 22:35, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Elainasla Thanks for catching that. It was in response to this and I overdid the protection. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 10:24, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Page protection[edit]

Coudl you please protect page PES League? there's someone always adding info which is not asked. It's a world wide competition and he keeps adding the results from the european championships. Thanks. Phospor (talk) 02:26, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

There isn't really enough editing and it looks like a content dispute. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 04:55, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

ChesterW23 It's Street dogs of the Philippines. You need to go to Wikipedia:Requested moves#Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves and follow the instructions there. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 06:21, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of images, I3 fighter.png and I3 fighter engagement.png[edit]

Hi, CambridgeBayWeather. Regarding your deletion of two uploaded images, "I3 fighter.png" and "I3 fighter engagement.png". These are from the official website of the Ministry of Defense of Japan, and reproduction or reuse of all the contents and images except images of some mascots on the site is authorized under a license compatible with CC BY 4.0 (which I selected). This is stated on their copyright policy page in Japanese, as below.

https://www.mod.go.jp/j/policies/contents.html "防衛省・自衛隊ホームページで公開している情報(以下「コンテンツ」といいます。)は、どなたでも以下の(1)~(7)に従って、複製、公衆送信、翻訳・変形等の翻案等、自由に利用できます。商用利用も可能です。" "Contents on the MoD and JSDF websites can be used by anyone for reproduction, public transmission, translation, and other purposes, with the following seven rules on use. Commercial use is also permitted."

Besides, it has a clause that particularly assumes use on Wikipedia, as following: "本利用ルールは、クリエイティブ・コモンズ・ライセンスの表示4.0国際(https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/legalcode.jaに規定される著作権利用許諾条件。以下「CC BY」といいます。)と互換性があり、本利用ルールが適用されるコンテンツはCC BYに従うことでも利用することができます。" "The rules on use is compatible with Creative Common license 4.0, and you can use these contents by conforming to CC BY."

Therefore, may I ask you to undo the deletion? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ppprobe (talkcontribs) 05:14, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Ppprobe. I didn't actually delete the photos I tagged them. The deletion was done by JGHowes at Commons so you need to ask there. It seems to me that the link above is different to the one that was with the actual photos. The link you have above does not even show the pictures you uploaded. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 15:36, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
CambridgeBayWeather. My images are from this PDF which is on the same MoD website; and the MoD copyright policy is applied to it as well. Anyway, i'll get in touch with him. Thank you Ppprobe (talk) 17:34, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Members Exchange Page Title[edit]

Hi! I see you undid my change to the Members Exchange page title (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Members_Exchange), moving it back from "Members Exchange (MEMX)" to "Members Exchange". I made this change because I saw that this company refers to itself as MEMX predominantly, not Members Exchange (their trademark is under MEMX -- http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=4809:9vu5lu.2.1 -- and media also mostly use the MEMX term). The page can't be moved to a "MEMX" title alone, because that belongs to a company that seems to be defunct. I thought that moving the page to "Members Exchange (MEMX)" would make it clearer for users searching for the company. If not disambiguation, what is the best way to make sure this page shows up when people search MEMX? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 606Orbs (talkcontribs) 18:21, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

The idea is to have unique titles without disambiguation terms. Currently Members Exchange (on Wikipedia) does not appear in the first 10 results from Google. Nine of the first 10 hits on Google are for different websites about Members Exchange. On is for the company Memory Express. Members Exchange (on Wikipedia) is the second result when you search on Wikipedia. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 03:43, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Ghoul Panic[edit]

Hey there. I was planning to write a page on Namco's Ghoul Panic, however I noticed that I'm unable to even start the page as page creation for it has been locked (looks like some clown kept reposting it after it got deleted). Do you think you can disable the protection so I can make the article? I've found quite a number of reviews and other reliable sources for it, so I would say it's notable to have a Wikipedia article on itself. Thanks. Namcokid47 (talk) 16:39, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
