DYK for Weight plate[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 3 December 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Weight plate, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that 45-pound (20 kg) weight plates have been known to weigh as little as 38 pounds (17 kg) or as much as 59 pounds (27 kg)? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Weight plate. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Weight plate), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

  • 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.
