  • A new tool is available to help determine if a given IP is an open proxy/VPN/webhost/compromised host.

Dante's AfD[edit]

You closed this AfD as no consensus. Dante's AfD. A good amount of effort was put into articulating my justification and I would like to see more debate go on. Can this be re-opened? Can this be re-nominated as you declared it as no-consensus? Graywalls (talk) 07:30, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

As a marginal case, I've granted your request. -- King of ♠ 01:18, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Does Talk:Dante's need to be updated as well, since the discussion is ongoing again? ---Another Believer (Talk) 19:34, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

We will also follow up on plans for recent and upcoming edit-a-thons, museum and library projects, education initiatives, and other outreach activities.

7:00pm - 9:00 pm at Metropolitan New York Library Council (8th floor) at 599 11th Avenue, Manhattan
(note this month we will be meeting in Midtown Manhattan, not at Babycastles)

We especially encourage folks to add your 5-minute lightning talks to our roster, and otherwise join in the "open space" experience! Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues!
