Welcome to my talk page! Here's a few notes that may be helpful to read before posting:

  • I will reply here and I probably won't ping you—unless you specifically request otherwise—so you may wish to watchlist this page.
  • If I've left you a message I will have watchlisted your page, so there's no need to leave me a {{talkback}} or ping me (but you can if you want).
  • I prefer to keep conversations on Wikipedia, but you can email me. If you do, you should definitely leave me a note about it; I rarely check my Wikipedia email account without first being prompted here.
  • If you do leave me a {{talkback}}, {{you've got mail}}, or similar, please remember to sign it so that it gets archived by the bot.
  • If you are following up on one of my admin actions, it will help to link the page or discussion in question so I immediately know what you're talking about.

Category:Governors of Nanyo listed at Categories for discussion[edit]

Information.svg

I have asked for a discussion to look at the possibility of moving the category Category:Governors of Nanyo to Category:Governors of the South Pacific Mandate. As you were involved in a similar discussion a few years ago at Talk:South Pacific Mandate#Requested move 19 October 2015, you may be interested in contributing to the category move discussion. - Polly Tunnel (talk) 16:20, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

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.

Miscellaneous

  • 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Orissa[edit]

Hello Jenks24,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Orissa for deletion, because it's too short to identify the subject of the article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.
