Hey, :) welcome back ! - FlightTime Phone (open channel) 11:34, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

  • It was a pleasant surprise to see your name in my watchlist this morning. Welcome back! ​—DoRD (talk)​ 12:06, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
I agree a most pleasant surprise. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 15:58, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Hey, good to see you around again! --NeilN talk to me 16:30, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Welcome back.--S Philbrick(Talk) 20:14, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Very good to see that you're back! --bonadea contributions talk 11:13, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
Thumbs up Beeblebrox (talk) 18:35, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks everyone! Glad to be back. =) -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 06:02, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

I see you hit the ground running :) --S Philbrick(Talk) 14:53, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
@Sphilbrick: Old habits come flooding back! I've been sticking to obvious issues that I hope haven't changed around here. I've been avoiding certain areas until I catch up on the current procedures. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 14:59, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
Very wise. I suspect that things have not changed materially in the year or so you've been gone, but it is always a good idea to check to see what may have changed. Off the top my head, I'd say that conflict of interest issues which have always been a big deal are even more so. Nothing else jumps to mind except somewhere (sorry no link) someone keeps track of significant changes so that you can review what's happened recently.--S Philbrick(Talk) 15:07, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
@Sphilbrick: I figure that major things haven't changed (vandals are still vandals, spammers are still spammers, WP:ANI still reads the same, etc.) It is the subtle changes that are going to need attention like if there are any CSD criteria changes. Some of the editing interface changes are confusing me (everything looks bigger!). There's the Administrator's Newsletter that I plan to read to try to catch up on things. I got automatically delivered most of them, but I got unsubscribed recently and I had to put myself back on the list. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 05:18, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Welcome back! Its nice to see you back! L293D ( • ) 02:08, 8 July 2018 (UTC)


Welcome back, per your request at WP:BN your administrator access has been restored. You may want to review the back issues of Wikipedia:Administrators' newsletter for some updates. Best regards, — xaosflux Talk 11:11, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

admin actions[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although all admins are welcome to delete constructively on Wikipedia, at least one of your recent deletions, such as the one you performed on the Main Page, did not appear to be constructive and has been undeleted. Please use Joe's userpage for any test deletions or blankings you would like to make, and read about our main page deletion guideline to learn more about deleting things on this encyclopedia. Thank you. —usernamekiran(talk) 18:29, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

I'm not doing that. =P -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 06:13, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
lol. :)
We operated in different time periods, and dont know each-other. But I did a quick skim before posting the first message, and I am glad to see you back :) —usernamekiran(talk) 17:24, 28 June 2018 (UTC)


[1]. And welcome back!--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 20:29, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

no edit conflict? Maybe it will need two admins to unblock now lol. —usernamekiran(talk) 10:57, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
You can't edit conflict a block. Triple blocks are great. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 00:17, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – July 2018[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (June 2018).


Administrator changes

added PbsouthwoodTheSandDoctor
readded Gogo Dodo
removed AndrevanDougEVulaKaisaLTony FoxWilyD

Bureaucrat changes

removed AndrevanEVula

Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC about the deletion of drafts closed with a consensus to change the wording of WP:NMFD. Specifically, a draft that has been repeatedly resubmitted and declined at AfC without any substantial improvement may be deleted at MfD if consensus determines that it is unlikely to ever meet the requirements for mainspace and it otherwise meets one of the reasons for deletion outlined in the deletion policy.
  • A request for comment closed with a consensus that the {{promising draft}} template cannot be used to indefinitely prevent a WP:G13 speedy deletion nomination.

Technical news

  • Starting on July 9, the WMF Security team, Trust & Safety, and the broader technical community will be seeking input on an upcoming change that will restrict editing of site-wide JavaScript and CSS to a new technical administrators user group. Bureaucrats and stewards will be able to grant this right per a community-defined process. The intention is to reduce the number of accounts who can edit frontend code to those who actually need to, which in turn lessens the risk of malicious code being added that compromises the security and privacy of everyone who accesses Wikipedia. For more information, please review the FAQ.
  • Syntax highlighting has been graduated from a Beta feature on the English Wikipedia. To enable this feature, click the highlighter icon (Codemirror-icon.png) in your editing toolbar (or under the hamburger menu in the 2017 wikitext editor). This feature can help prevent you from making mistakes when editing complex templates.
  • IP-based cookie blocks should be deployed to English Wikipedia in July (previously scheduled for June). This will cause the block of a logged-out user to be reloaded if they change IPs. This means in most cases, you may no longer need to do /64 range blocks on residential IPv6 addresses in order to effectively block the end user. It will also help combat abuse from IP hoppers in general. For the time being, it only affects users of the desktop interface.


  • Currently around 20% of admins have enabled two-factor authentication, up from 17% a year ago. If you haven't already enabled it, please consider doing so. Regardless if you use 2FA, please practice appropriate account security by ensuring your password is secure and unique to Wikimedia.

Dog meat sock[edit]

Sorry I didn't view the history on that one. I was in a bit of a rush to do the shopping. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 03:14, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

No worries. =) -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 05:31, 8 July 2018 (UTC)


Can you revoke WindowClockLady's talk page editing privileges, if they haven't been already? Paul Benjamin Austin (talk) 14:00, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Done. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 03:43, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

I responded to your Admin report[edit]

I have responded to your report of my account to Admins and updated my talk page. Please do not post on my Talk page ever again. If you'd like to reach out to me you may do so in private using the contact link I left on the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jhabdas (talkcontribs) 06:46, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

...that's not how this works, Jhabdas (talk · contribs). Especially for petty reasons related to edit warring. tedder (talk) 15:17, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
Gogo, I created a sock investigation for this. tedder (talk) 15:33, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
Okay then. I hope the investigation goes real well. By the way I was in contact with the author of BitWarden. Turns out they can't get BitWarden listed on Wikipedia either. Conspiracy? You be the judge. Perhaps they should just pay for notoriety so Wikipedia folk will allow them the visibility they deserve on the list of password managers—where they'd already been listed for almost a year before being removed arbitrarily. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jhabdas (talkcontribs) 07:39, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

It's okay. Never mind. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 08:52, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
