The Signpost: 27 January 2020[edit]

Administrators' newsletter – February 2020[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (January 2020).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a request for comment, partial blocks are now enabled on the English Wikipedia. This functionality allows administrators to block users from editing specific pages or namespaces rather than the entire site. A draft policy is being workshopped at Wikipedia:Partial blocks.
  • The request for comment seeking the community's sentiment for a binding desysop procedure closed with wide-spread support for an alternative desysoping procedure based on community input. No proposed process received consensus.

Technical news

  • Twinkle now supports partial blocking. There is a small checkbox that toggles the "partial" status for both blocks and templating. There is currently one template: {{uw-pblock}}.
  • When trying to move a page, if the target title already exists then a warning message is shown. The warning message will now include a link to the target title. [1]

Arbitration

  • Following a recent arbitration case, the Arbitration Committee reminded administrators that checkuser and oversight blocks must not be reversed or modified without prior consultation with the checkuser or oversighter who placed the block, the respective functionary team, or the Arbitration Committee.

Shivas Ha'amim[edit]

Hi Dr. Wolff. I just started to write an article about Shivas Ha'amim and it was just a stub when it was suddenly moved to Draft:Seven Nations (Bible). Can you help out. Thanks. IZAK (talk) 00:42, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi @IZAK:, looks like the problem has been solved by DGG. JFW | T@lk 14:35, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
