|Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins|
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|
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 However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less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.

|salted page recreation|
Hi there, it seems you where the most recent admin to review the deletion discussion and salting around Nicholas Alahverdian. It seems there is some recent news around the case that made the person known - childcare in RI and his involvement in some lobbying. A new author has circumvented the salting by introducing an article with a slightly misspelled name Nicolas Alahverdian. I was wondering if you have any guidance in this case? My initial reaction was a CSD, but given time has moved on and it appears there may be some lobbying done, this may require another look? The two related deletion discussions are Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Alahverdian v. Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth and Families, et al and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nicholas Alahverdian. Many thanks! Jake Brockman (talk) 10:47, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

|Invitation to Admin confidence survey|
Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.
The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.
To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.
We really appreciate your input!
Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

|Jesse Waugh (artist)|
Thanks for salting Jesse Waugh. Jesse Waugh (artist) and Jesse R. Waugh (artist) might also be good to salt. All told, although it is hard to keep track, there have been three AfDs and four or five page deletions ( Jesse R. Waugh and Jesse Waugh) via AfD or speedy.

|UTSA library is working with 2 history classes on creating Wikipedia articles/edits on Women of San Antonio|
Hello from a fellow Roadrunner!
Kinu, this semester the UTSA library is working with two History faculty members on Wikipedia class projects. Students in two classes (Historical Methods, History of San Antonio) will be given assignments to write research papers on notable women who had/have a connection to San Antonio. We're planning a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on November 10, where interested students (these are undergrads) will bring their research papers and will receive help creating basic articles or improving existing articles. Do you have any advice for us, or would you be interested in working with us in some way? Cheers, Kemphem (talk) 23:19, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
The Cambium Networks Wikipedia page was removed due to disruptive editing in 2016. I fully understand the reason, and apologize for this activity now 2½ years ago. Over that time, our company has changed and there are more citations available. I ask for your reconsideration for us to have a presence on Wikipedia. Cambium Networks will abide by the rules.
We would like to be able to professionally share information with readers who are seeking the details on our company. Here are some recent stories that may qualify Cambium Networks for a page: • Being selected by Facebook as a partner for their Express WiFi program • Providing WiFi connectivity to rescue teams in the Thailand Cave Rescue project
I appreciate your consideration to have an administrator unblock the page. We will provide a quality page with a neutral, well-cited content. We will abide by the rules. If a conversation with our CEO Atul Bhatnagar would be helpful, I am glad to set this up.
|Nomination of Martha Rogers (professor) for deletion|
A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Martha Rogers (professor) is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.
The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Martha Rogers (professor) until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.
Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Edwardx (talk) 00:21, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
|Why I listed it as vandalism|
Thank you for blocking Boogily. I can see why at first glance this might not be obvious vandalism, which is why I originally did not call it this in my edit summaries until recently, so just to clarify;
1) Per the school website, the currently listed principal is correct and there is no need to change it
2) They are purposely spelling the school's name wrong
3) The changes they are making to enrollment are not backed by reliable sources
4) Most importantly for me, their list of notable faculty is just...trash for lack of a better word. For example, "Steve Rabinowitz - One of the humanities teachers, Steve is easily recognizable by his appearance. Many of the students have noted that he looks irritably like Jesus. One of his talents include him being able to respell his last name as Rainbow Zit."
As well, I have been recently harassed by students from this school  and the page history is full of IPs and new accounts vandalizing this page (like this IP for example, which made the same edits this "new" account is making) so I am being watchful of this.

|ArbCom 2018 election voter message|
Hey, thanks for this, but any idea if we can find out who it was?
Of the people I pinged, almost all are "in good standing" and unlikely to create a sock account that could be tied to them by CU, Dream Focus (talk · contribs) already knows I'm on to him as I've explicitly stated that I'm convinced the original Malaysian IP was him and so if it were the same person and that person was DF they'd have to know there was no way they could get away with it, and of the ones that are blocked (or were placed under a limited ban and left the project, or were clearly only trolling to begin with, got away with it for a few months, then got bored and left) there's basically Brough87 (talk · contribs), C. W. Gilmore (talk · contribs), Expectant of Light (talk · contribs) and JohnWickTwo (talk · contribs).
B87, CWG and JWT are all stale for CU purposes, as is EoL but the latter is almost certainly still active under a new account, which Kmakers could be used to catch.

|Joji Musician Reversion|
@Kinu: Hi, I would like for you to undo the reversion you did on your part. As I understand I should not have reverted 3 times (though I believe I fall under the exceptions to that rule due to vandalism), the 3RR rule was first broken by JJMC89. On top of which he has been breaking several other rules (such as posting generic templates on my talk page) and has been known to vandalize. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheFixerUpper12 (talk • contribs)
|Please revert my corrections immediately!|
Hello Kinu of Wikipedia. This is Danny Seigle again. For the record, (which i have stated in the help page already), My job position in Alab Pilipinas is Team Consultant (not assistant coach). I am making these corrections to ensure the information on my page is current, accurate and factual. Kindly acknowledge my edits and Please revert it back to my corrections. Anything that says "assistant coach" needs to be corrected to "Team Consultant".I have tried several times to explain via reps and myself why these edits are being done. Someone keeps editing my changes back to assistant coach which is false. I have never been an assistant coach for any team. What do i need to do to prove that I am a CONSULTANT and Not An Assistant coach? I hope that we can resolve this matter as soon as possible. Should you wish to verify my info, you may check the profile page on my twitter & instagram accounts(@dannyseigle42) wc state my job title. Further can i request to be unblocked. Thank you for your understanding!
———————————————————————————- Hi Kinu,
Here are three articles links from different publications as proof of my correct job title. I hope you find this sufficient enough, and can immediately revert my edits. So to clarify, anything that says assistant coach please change it to Team Consultant. The discrepancy is written in my page five times.
In addition "I led San Miguel to 7 championships (not 6) out of 8", this error is found in the first paragraph.
First of all thanks for catching ma mistake. Secondly, its a pleasure to meet a person like you. You possess an excellent bIo over your user page.
you deleted my America's Next Top Best Friend for literally no reason. You said it got deleted because they weren't notable enough. Bullcrap. 1. They interviewed 2 contestants (who themselves were notable from TV, movie & Music video credit roles and such) from the show. 2. They were featured in other notable theatre and entertainment pieces outside of the podcast and 3. They're show expands over 100+ episodes. They ARE notable, what the Hell are you talking about? And I'll have you know that long before you came along there was another user who reviewed at the page and thought it was perfectly fine. This is an injustice. I demand you put the page back immediately. If you don't I'm going to file a complaint. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ratherbe2000 (talk • contribs) 00:27, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

|Speedy Deletion of Malcolm Kendrick page|
Greetings — I strongly object to this deletion and subsequent locking of the subject; not only was the initial page deleted against the objections of a goodly number of people, my stated reasons for arguing against the deletion of the new entry were simply not addressed. There are many, many pages that ought to be expunged from Wikipedia if this one has been — true consistency is sorely lacking on this site, and the actual processes that lie behind actions such as these are veiled from public sunlight. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rekleov (talk • contribs)
