no. 929 of Precious,
a prize of QAI!
I was looking for a copy of Relevance Paradox
...which you quite rightly, I strongly suspect, deleted a few years ago. It's come up in connection with another dodgy source and I want to see if it ties in. Anmccaff (talk) 19:03, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Extended confirmed protection
Unsalting of Yan Naing Oo
Hi Davewild I am contacting you because I was interested in moving page Yan Naing Oo (midfielder) to Yan Naing Oo. This is because their really isn't anyone else called Yan Naing Oo so it seems kind of pointless to have a specifier. Yan Naing Oo was deleted in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Yan Naing Oo in which you where the deleting admin, but the subject of the article was recreated in Yan Naing Oo (midfielder). The later article was nominated for deletion but that was struck down, so I thought of moving (the article) to make it simpler. If you think the newer article (Yan Naing Oo (midfielder)) is not notable enough just tell me. Thanks Inter&anthro (talk) 02:15, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
Regarding the 2015 deletion of William 'Bill' Mehl as not notable. Plz see wiki article on Jack Trice which is, essentially, the sane story: death of a football player due to medical issues prior to penicillin or new antibiotic medicines. Then, years later, a recognition by the University to establish a memorial and increase student/faculty knowledge of the individual. While Valpo is much smaller than Iowa State, the stories are almost identical without the racism aspect. Believe reconsideration is warranted, Thank you BillT — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:59, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins
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
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.
