  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

Template:Show[edit]

Can you lower the protection of Template:Show to "Template protection", so template editors can edit it? --George Ho (talk) 07:45, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Done. --Closedmouth (talk) 08:38, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

User block[edit]

G'day, you blocked User:Australians kiIled in a plane crash, now there is User:Largk making similar comments in an edit summary; as well as blocking the User, perhaps keep an eye on the article with a view to semi-protecting it if that sort of thing keeps happening? Cheers YSSYguy (talk) 13:36, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, Largk has been blocked. Cheers again YSSYguy (talk) 13:39, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
