ArbCom 2017 election voter message[edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, LocalNet. Voting in the 2017 Arbitration Committee elections is now open until 23.59 on Sunday, 10 December.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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.

ANI Experiences survey[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation Community health initiative (led by the Safety and Support and Anti-Harassment Tools team) is conducting a survey for en.wikipedia contributors on their experience and satisfaction level with the Administrator’s Noticeboard/Incidents. This survey will be integral to gathering information about how this noticeboard works - which problems it deals with well, and which problems it struggles with.

The survey should take 10-20 minutes to answer, and your individual responses will not be made public. The survey is delivered through Google Forms. The privacy policy for the survey describes how and when Wikimedia collects, uses, and shares the information we receive from survey participants and can be found here:

If you would like to take this survey, please sign up on this page, and a link for the survey will be mailed to you via Special:Emailuser.

Please be aware this survey will close Friday, Dec. 8 at 23:00 UTC.

Thank you on behalf of the Support & Safety and Anti-Harassment Tools Teams, Patrick Earley (WMF) talk 21:14, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

For adding quality info to Apple-related articles. D4R1U5 (talk) 14:27, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

@D4R1U5: Thank you so much! :D I hope it's okay that I add it to the front of my userpage? :) LocalNet (talk) 14:34, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Yes, you may do as you wish :). D4R1U5 (talk) 14:37, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for guiding me as to where find information on the Winklevoss twins in the article on Facebook.Vorbee (talk) 20:36, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Hey @Vorbee: You're welcome! :) LocalNet (talk) 20:41, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Edit on the Google Assistant article[edit]

Hi LocalNet! I noticed that you removed the Supported devices section on the Google Assistant article. For now, I have went ahead and reverted this as I believe that a talk page discussion should take place first. The section was initially created to create consistency with the Amazon Alexa article.

I get the point you brought up, and agree that it might be better expressed in text (like in the Cortana article, compared to a list). As for the list being overflowed due to the recent SDK announcement, the section states that only commercially-available products with a reliable secondary source should be included.

Cheers, Daylen (talk) 04:20, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Daylen: I was unaware you had posted on my talk page until now, and actually created a discussion on Google Assistant's talk page (which, for future reference, is where discussion of specific pages should be rather than on users' talk pages :) ) I want to keep the discussion in one place, so please meet me on Talk:Google Assistant#Supported devices :) Thanks! LocalNet (talk) 12:19, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
Sounds good! Not all users check their watchlist, so I initially start on their talk page. Happy to continue the discussion on the Google Assistant talk page! Daylen (talk) 15:53, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
@Daylen: That's true! A protip is to tag their name like {{u|username}} on the talk page of the article. Even if they don't have the page on their watchlist at all, that should give them a notification :) LocalNet (talk) 16:13, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
I should have checked your page first :), as I am used to new users and deal with many COI edit requests by PR personal who aren't sure who Wikipedia works. BTW, I responded on the Google Assistant talk page (and pinged you). Have a nice day, Daylen (talk) 16:24, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

December 2017[edit]

I have reverted a part of this edit to Samsung Galaxy S8— as you seemed to have made a duplicate; it already stated in the article that it was released on April 28th. If you're wondering what exactly I reverted, look here. SapphireArte (talk) 16:27, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Hey there @SapphireArte: The reversion was actually not necessary. As per the "History" section, the Singapore release date was 29 April, but I had accidentally written 28. Now, however, it is bundled in the 28 April release dates, so I'm going to go ahead and add a 29 April header. Also, for future reference, please explain relevant reversions in the edit summary, as you made no mention of coming here to discuss the issue with me, leaving those looking through the history unaware of why you actually did it :) LocalNet (talk) 16:32, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
