Date of birth missing (living people) vs Year of birth missing (living people)[edit]

Hi. Please note that we use Category:Year of birth missing (living people) instead of Category:Date of birth missing (living people) for articles and we put the later, if it is necessary, in the talk page. Thanks, Magioladitis (talk) 07:14, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for notice. Cheers. Carlosguitar (Yes Executor?) 16:29, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

In The Motherhood[edit]

If you have no objection, I'll go ahead and revive the In The Motherhood article, now that it will officially become a TV series. Robert Moore 12:38, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Alternate titles, and columns in Lists of articles[edit]

Hi Carlos, you where one of the few people that helped to merg the N64 games lists and get the Japanese titles back onto the main list, but the discussioon has arrived again, and I'd like to invite you to contribute to the Talk:List of Nintendo 64 games#Removal of Alternate Titles and Number of Players where we are discussing the use of keeping alternate titles in the "List of...games" some have suggested that they take up too much space and that other columns could seem to be "useful only to fans", and other things that have been mentioned that, and other 'List of' talk pages. I hope you'll come and give you opinion, and hopefully keep these type of concerns from arising again and again at each "List of" pages. (Floppydog66 (talk) 23:10, 18 December 2008 (UTC))

Hi again Carlos, I just wanted to ask if you'd like to add your name to either the keep or remove section I made at the top of the talk section, it seems your view was neutral and if so you don't need to give a keep or remove, but it'd keep others from wondering if it was for or against one of the columns. I tried to list those who felt yes, they wanted and no they didn't want this or that, so it would be a bit more clear as to what the final consensus would be. Thanks again for contributing. (Floppydog66 (talk) 02:23, 23 December 2008 (UTC))

I do not see how this will improve the list by removing them, so I would say weak keep since there is no harm. Pehaps you can find a better design for the page. Carlosguitar (Yes Executor?) 13:35, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your opinion, it seems some people wish to change things but only partially and then they usually don't use the talk page to discuss the changes, I've made two sample tables with possible changes and I made the two Keep/Remove, for Title and the other for # of players and hope people dropping in will add their names to one or both of the Keep/Remove. So far the keep and remove, section for the number of players is half and half, with no one really giving a good reason as to why they feel it should be removed saying "not necessary", "insufficient", "no use to any readers", and "if it does harm to the article", sorry for all the "_", I try to remind myself not to use them on the 'List of' so I'm not using their words against them, but at least the discussion is now on the "list of" page and not on my talk page as it started out as. If you'd want to add your name to the # of players, Keep or Remove section, I'm sure it'd help out Paper Luigi's wanting to keep it. I just reedited the Keep/Remove so they are in a column of their own rather then so it's easier for people to search down them.(Floppydog66 (talk) 20:19, 29 December 2008 (UTC))

No content in Category:Non-article sports pages[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Category:Non-article sports pages, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Category:Non-article sports pages, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Richard Kastle[edit]

Hi there!

Thanks for you COURTEOUS help the other night! I've tried to follow your instructions fully, but I don't think I've done it right (an AfD case). Could I possibly impose on you to check my work (On Richard Kastle's page, or at "Discussion of Articles for Deletion"?

I've never wanted to delete an article in the past, and admit to being a "computer dummy"!

Your help would be most greatly appreciated!

Thank you, Prof.rick (talk) 14:23, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

You have done it correctly. Cheers. Carlosguitar (Yes Executor?) 18:50, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Timeline of parkour[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Timeline of parkour has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unencyclopedic — a poorly written timeline for something that in no way merits one.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. — The Man in Question (gesprec) · (forðung) 01:00, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Foundation 9 Entertainment's advertisement status[edit]

Wondering if the reworking and addition of historical content with citations is sufficient to warrant the removal of the advertisement tag? (You were the user that put it there, I believe.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.103.92.105 (talk) 03:55, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Carlosguitar. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Carlosguitar.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
