Two Mount Pleasant stations in New York
Is there any way you can make sure Mount Pleasant (Metro-North station) and Mount Pleasant Railroad Station won't get mixed up with one another? ---------User:DanTD (talk) 00:11, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Scott Paskoff and Andrew Paskoff
Hello. I am curious to learn why the page for Scott Paskoff was deleted, and the page for Andrew Paskoff is on the verge? We have worked very hard over the years in our careers and have been upstanding contributors to Wikipedia. A colleague of ours who worked to get these pages created in 2008 met all proper guidelines, and we have continued to establish ourselves in the industry.
I'd love to know what happened, and how this can be fixed.

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.

Do you think semi is still required on Roblox? It's been semi'd since the start of the year and there has been no vandalism from anyone since then, from what I can see. Would PC be more appropriate? Anarchyte (work | talk) 04:22, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
Could you perhaps semi-protect this article. Just to give you a background on this vandal, Boeing 737 was also recently semi-protected due to the same vandal. Thanks. 2601:1C0:103:80F7:CCE:7AA9:CF65:22D0 (talk) 22:45, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Biography of Adamir Jerkovic
I see you have deleted my draft on biography of Bosnian politician Adamir Jerkovic. Is there a reason for this? I am new to wikipedia and I assumed that the article is not available to others until the first line was deleted and file saved. Could you please let me know if my assumption was correct.

So I am contacting you =).
This was a draft that I created on 03.06.2017 and just saved it for the next day to add the references. Now i see the date of deletion was May 30th and probably made a mistake and created empty article then. Could you please advise me on how to recover/recreate the article (and this time i will not save it until all the references have been added.

Hi, where did you find the timetable for the NYC water level route that said East Cleveland was the next station east? (talk) 17:07, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
Here's a doozy, in 1910 and 1921, There were two B&O revenue routes out of Cleveland, the Cleveland-Wheeling via South Brooklyn station, and the Cleveland-Valley Junction, via Brooklyn station. At some point, by 1952, the services flipped, becoming Cleveland-Wheeling via Brooklyn and Willow station. I was going to revert to what you had earlier, but I noticed that by 1952, the service was only Cleveland-Akron via Brooklyn and Willow (The apparent precursor to the CVSR). To make matters more confusing, the route via South Brooklyn is not mentioned in the 1952 book. My brain hurts, help. (talk) 02:25, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
