Hi Orane/Journalist[edit]

In case you didn't know, I have nominated "S&M" for FAC once again. It is the tenth nomination. I have collaborated with the co-nominator on the article, and it has been through a Peer Review, of which several people who are experienced with the process gave help. As you opposed my sixth nomination, I would appreciate it if you would re-read the article and give your opinion on how you feel about the article now over at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/S&M (song)/archive10. Thank you.  — AARONTALK 10:25, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hey Orane. How's it going? I'm once again extremely grateful for your help on "Love the Way You Lie". Better late than never with that article becoming an FA, but it couldn't have happened without you! Once again, thanks. —WP:PENGUIN · [ TALK ] 18:19, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Oh heyyy1!!! I wasn't even aware that it was nominated. I've been so out of touch with Wikipedia hahah. Congratulations. It is a great article and well-deserved and I know you worked hard! Orane (talk) 01:32, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

4[edit]

Hello, some copy-editing by fresh eyes has been done to 4 in the past few months since the FAC closed and I have also started looking over the sections again in the hope of putting it up for nomination again. Do you have any time to look at the page and see if there are any outstanding prose issues that need to be resolved? Regards —JennKR | 22:09, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Yep, will take a look as soon as I can. Orane (talk) 01:33, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Sherlock502[edit]

I just had a minor run-in with Sherlock502, and editor I noticed you blocked recently. He made a personal threat when I removed a genre descriptor from the infobox for Person of Interest (TV series). POI is one of those shows that tends to collect a lot of genre descriptors depending on which editor sees what, so it's become easier to use the simplest and most obvious descriptor: crime drama. I recently removed thriller, which CBS uses in one of its descriptions of the show on its website (although not in its press releases, and not consistently.) He responded with a threat that "something would happen" to any editor who removes it. I've put a gentle warning on his talk page, allowing for his being new, but thought I'd give you a heads up since you have already blocked him once, and seemed to take an interest in correcting his behavior afterward. Hopefully the warning will do the job. --Drmargi (talk) 19:20, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Listen. I just want to say I am so sorry. You know I will never make personal threats or hurting anyone. All I am doing is set something right for the greater good. Hopefully you'll forgive me for what I did. What do you say? Can you accept my apology? Sherlock502 (talk) 22:05, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
I accept your apology, and I want you to recognize that statements such as you made are a problem that you should not repeat. I know you can't hurt anyone because you don't know who we are. What I'm less confident about is that you won't make threats again. You've edited here less than a month and already have been blocked once, plus you've demonstrated an aggressive editing style several times. That's just not acceptable, and you're going to have to show the community that you're capable of editing that is collaborative, civil and without giving other editors an ultimatum or by making threats. You are not the final word regarding content, and need to accept that. --Drmargi (talk) 22:45, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
You know I may be a bit rebellious regarding rules around here on Wikipedia, but I don't like when criticism hits abroad my shoulders. I just want you to understand what I am saying. Sherlock502 (talk) 23:04, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
If that is a case, I'll try to work on my part on being "civil" in talk page discussions. Now if there is nothing to be said, I bid you good day. Sherlock502 (talk) 23:30, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

4/Beyoncé[edit]

Thank you for your work on 4 which was promoted to FA last week—you helped considerably in salvaging content I removed when I condensed the article down from its previous state and key in ensuring the prose of that article was brilliant. I've been working on the "Recording" section of Beyoncé (album) and was wondering if you had any ideas of how I can improve this section? There are even less sources this time round and as a result, I think the content lacks the structure 4 had in terms of information on how and where things were recorded. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers, —JennKR | 16:44, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Congrats on the promotion. I know you worked hard on it. Glad I could help out, however small. As for the new article: give me a bit of time. I'll provide some feedback when I can, on the article talk page. Orane (talk) 23:28, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much! I was going to notify you soon as I still think it could do with some refining. Also, what do you think of the "Recording" section? The lack of sources has made it difficult to give it the structure 4 had. —JennKR | 02:44, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

A couple refining here and there may be in order, but it's nothing that pops out at you. I am very impressed by it. I'll take a look at the recording section as soon as I have the chance. Orane (talk) 23:28, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Beyoncé (album)[edit]

Hello Journalist, I managed to get Beyoncé up to GA with a view to taking it to FA at some point. Do you think you could take a look over it? I found the Visuals section particularly difficult to write and I feel like it's lacking something—do you know what it could be? Best, —JennKR | 00:00, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Celine Dion FAR[edit]

I have nominated Celine Dion for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 10:21, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Invitation to subscribe to the edit filter mailing list[edit]

Hi, as a user in the edit filter manager user group we wanted to let you know about the new wikipedia-en-editfilters mailing list. As part of our recent efforts to improve the use of edit filters on the English Wikipedia it has been established as a venue for internal discussion by edit filter managers regarding private filters (those only viewable by administrators and edit filter managers) and also as a means by which non-admins can ask questions about hidden filters that wouldn't be appropriate to discuss on-wiki. As an edit filter manager we encourage you to subscribe; the more users we have in the mailing list the more useful it will be to the community. If you subscribe we will send a short email to you through Wikipedia to confirm your subscription, but let us know if you'd prefer another method of verification. I'd also like to take the opportunity to invite you to contribute to the proposed guideline for edit filter use at WP:Edit filter/Draft and the associated talk page. Thank you!

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Journalist. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

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[edit]

Hi Journalist.

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.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
