  • 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Gu Gong[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Gu Gong requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Tdts5 (talk) 21:27, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Sockpuppet of User:LaurenceArmourKid[edit]

Hey! I noticed that you blocked the user LaurenceArmourKid. From the similarity in the edits, its obvious that it is a sock-puppet of another account Special:Contributions/Heaven Round 2 which too has crossed 4 warnings. Would you mind blocking it?

(edit conflict) @Jiten Dhandha: See also Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/UnderArmourKid and the related LTA case. This is their typical unblock request style... –72 (talk) 22:46, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
@72: Thanks for the link! I wasn't aware that this was an LTA case (havent had to deal with him/her before). I've watchlisted the SPI page in case I find more such accounts. Jiten Dhandha • talk • contributions • 22:50, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of Self-directed education[edit]

Personally I felt the decision making process is a bit too quick and arbitrary. I have posted my reasons for no-deletion, and have been adding more content and citing more sources during the past few days. There isn't much back and forth discussions from others. Then the decision is promptly made to delete Self-directed education. I have to contend that the process is too quick and arbitrary. Also is there any other place for me to put this complaint other than your talk page since that page is already deleted? Yuanliangliu (talk) 08:30, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

    • I tend to thank the people that beat me to vandalism. Thankfully I caught it and self-reverted my revert! Gatemansgc (talk) 18:02, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

Talk:Mother (series)[edit]

Can you please fix Talk:Mother (series) - it didn't follow the main page move, and should be at Talk:Mother (video game series). --Netoholic @ 22:05, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

 Done --Ixfd64 (talk) 22:35, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Mother (series)[edit]

Just wondering: At Talk:Mother (video game series), do you believed there is also consensus for retargeting Mother (series) to Mother (disambiguation) as a {{R from incomplete disambiguation}}, or should Mother (series) be nominated at WP:RFD to determine that? Steel1943 (talk) 23:24, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

From what I could tell, there are no objections to retargeting the redirect. --Ixfd64 (talk) 23:29, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. Steel1943 (talk) 23:39, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
