The Name of the [[Herschel (Mimantean crater)]] Article[edit]

I have been making comments about the change of the name of Herschel (Mimantean crater) from [[Herschel (crater on Mimas)]] on the talk page. There has been no response. No response is a reasonable response, but I want to make sure that no response is not the simple result of not noticing the discussion. I do not add all of the pages I edit to my watch list.

E-mail is a nice idea, but I do not have an e-mail address. --Fartherred (talk) 00:13, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

If you first see this thread after this comment, the matter seems pretty well settled now. --Fartherred (talk) 16:42, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry about that. I haven't been keeping up-to-date with Wikipedia, hence the email suggestion. -- Consumed Crustacean (talk) 05:59, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts. MadmanBot (talk) 05:11, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Perfectly fine, Mr. Bot. I've only made a dozen or so edits over the past several months, and all of those logged-out. No sure when the last time I used the bucket was. -- Consumed Crustacean (talk) 07:01, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
Actually, that comment will probably count as an edit and keep you on the admin rolls for another year. (I'm not 100% certain, but I think that's the way it works.) In any event, hoping you're well and noting we've missed you. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 17:08, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
Ah. Well, whatever. I'm fine, thank you. I've been editing, just at a steady, low rate on my IP address. I usually can't be bothered to log in. -- Consumed Crustacean (talk) 03:49, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
Although it might be useful to become somewhat active again. I've rewritten a few articles as an IP, and it's somewhat hard to keep track of them or receive feedback when you're account-less. -- Consumed Crustacean (talk) 04:10, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Location map conversions[edit]

Hi. Thanks for helping convert location maps from templates to modules. A few notes, though:

  • All parameters should be converted (you omitted "type").
  • Templates should never redirect to modules. No page at all should exist where the template used to be, and any redirect templates need to be re-created as redirect modules (or, if nothing transcludes them, they can just be deleted).
  • No redirects should be left behind in template space at all, including doc pages.
  • Talk pages should be moved from the template to the module (e.g., Template talk:Location map Canada to Module talk:Location map/data/Canada).
  • Attribution pages should be totally blanked to prevent their accidental use.

Regarding User talk:Haozch[edit]

Hi Crustacean, thank you for your ping. Mind if you can enlighten me as to the circumstances of the article and its content? From what I've seen I assume that the user who created the article was probably the creator of the website where the article content was lifted from; from what I understand from policy that without expressed permission of the author himself, the article is a CSD for copyvio.

I get that he must give expressed permission, but I wonder if by doing so that he must release his own content from copyright, I wonder what are the future ramifications for him concerning his licensing and IP rights that he has over his own content, especially if for example some of his content is from Twitter, and depending of Twitter's T&Cs, I'm not sure if he can claim copyright on that content. Hope you get what I mean. Cheers, Optakeover(Talk) 08:40, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Also, mind if I raise this - I don't assume bad faith, but if he is editing out of China, how is he able to do that? Optakeover(Talk) 08:46, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
The special circumstances (i.e., good chance it's his own material, or at the very least material from an organization he's associated with) warrant some extra care and instruction to the user. G12 is also only supposed to be used when it's unambiguous copyright violation, but since he hasn't actually made a claim or contested the speedy himself that's probably fine. I've both added a comment on his talk page and emailed him, so in my opinion it's all good now.
RE: Twitter, China, etc.:
  1. He doesn't have to release it from copyright, he has to agree to relicense to be compatible with Wikipedia's licenses.
  2. Twitter's T&Cs don't in any way remove his ownership over his own content. They require that he also give them permission to use it, but that's all. None of the article content is on Twitter anyways, it's taken from / based on the Apache Eagle documentation.
  3. Not sure what China has to do with anything.
Cheers! -- Consumed Crustacean (talk) 18:44, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure about the GNU licence, but for the CC licence, agreeing to licence content on CC means that the creator doesn't give up copyright on the content, but cannot release it from the CC licence; which effectively means that the copyright claim cannot be used with regards to users of the content who hasn't broken the licence. As for China, I just wonder if it has anything to do with Tor, since such services has to be used by Chinese people in order to circumvent their internet blocking. But I make no accusations and assume good faith. I just wonder if such concerns are legitimate and rational. Thanks anyway, for your reply. Optakeover(Talk) 06:14, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Game Engine article[edit]

I want to see a good Game Engine article, care to write one? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alanhaugen (talkcontribs) 23:14, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, was thinking about working on it. But right now, work, life, etc. don't leave me with a whole lot of time. Maybe I'll consider it again when Mirage ships. -- Consumed Crustacean (talk) 23:22, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Consumed Crustacean. 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. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]


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. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 20:32, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

Enabled. If I suddenly go rogue it's either me, or someone's tortured my Wikipedia and phone password out of me. -- Consumed Crustacean (talk) 00:00, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Consumed Crustacean.

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)
