James Russell Lowell was nominated in 2013, but - I guess - postponed because he was born 22 February 1819. I haven't looked if the article is still in good shape, - please consider. We won't get a better date for him. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:38, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

If folks want date connections they need to put them in the various proper spots - Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/pending and Wikipedia:Featured articles that haven't been on the Main Page/Date connection. I can switch this one out but ... really, use the pages for this purpose please. Ealdgyth - Talk 15:41, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Actually, it ran on the main page in 2017... (mutters). Ealdgyth - Talk 15:42, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Sorry for missing, twice. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:06, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

www[edit]

Hi. At Special:Diff/881435801, you stripped the "www." prefix from the corrientes.gov.ar URL. This is, however, invalid. www.corrientes.gov.ar points to 181.14.206.138 but corrientes.gov.ar points to 181.14.206.139, which is not ping-able and refuses connections on port 80. It could be a VPN entry point or some other kind of non-web host or nothing at all. While not common, this is sometimes the case, and we can't assume the prefix can be stripped without actually verifying that it still points to the same address (just being a valid, even ping-able, address is not enough). Was this done by a script? —[AlanM1(talk)]— 20:02, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

Yes, since the edit summary says "General formatting by script" and links to User:Ohconfucius/script, it did indeed occur by a script. Ealdgyth - Talk 20:09, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
I did look there first. No mention of URL or www (on that page, anyway). Which script was it (so I can follow up with the developer)? (ed.) —[AlanM1(talk)]— 09:55, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
Okay... two things - one, all of the scripts on that page are done by the same editor - so you can follow up with the developer because there's no confusion about who the developer is. Two - the edit summary says "general formatting" - and the second script listed on that page is User:Ohconfucius/script/formatgeneral which has the explanatory text of "fixes some general formatting". So by the process of deduction, I thought it was pretty obvious which script was in use. Ealdgyth - Talk 13:27, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
It wasn't obvious to me – that's why I asked. Thanks for your time. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 13:38, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – February 2019[edit]

Guideline and policy news

  • A request for comment is currently open to reevaluate the activity requirements for administrators.
  • Administrators who are blocked have the technical ability to block the administrator who blocked their own account. A recent request for comment has amended the blocking policy to clarify that this ability should only be used in exceptional circumstances, such as account compromises, where there is a clear and immediate need.
  • A request for comment closed with a consensus in favor of deprecating The Sun as a permissible reference, and creating an edit filter to warn users who attempt to cite it.

Technical news

  • A discussion regarding an overhaul of the format and appearance of Wikipedia:Requests for page protection is in progress (permalink). The proposed changes will make it easier to create requests for those who are not using Twinkle. The workflow for administrators at this venue will largely be unchanged. Additionally, there are plans to archive requests similar to how it is done at WP:PERM, where historical records are kept so that prior requests can more easily be searched for.

Miscellaneous

  • Voting in the 2019 Steward elections will begin on 08 February 2019, 14:00 (UTC) and end on 28 February 2019, 13:59 (UTC). The confirmation process of current stewards is being held in parallel. You can automatically check your eligibility to vote.
  • A new IRC bot is available that allows you to subscribe to notifications when specific filters are tripped. This requires that your IRC handle be identified.
