IA nomination[edit]

Hello MSGJ, I've nominated you for a temporary interface administrator access grant at Wikipedia_talk:Interface_administrators#Stop-gap_users_nominated. If you do not wish to have this foisted upon you, feel free to remove yourself from the listing. Thank you, — xaosflux Talk 02:49, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

interface administrator[edit]

Hi MSGJ, per Special:Diff/856641107, I have temporarily added the interface administrator user-right to your account. I'm sure the temporary part of that will change to permanent once we have a mechanism to agree it! WormTT(talk) 17:36, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

File:TriMet icon.svg & Template:Rail-interchange[edit]

I see you made the change that CouvGeek requested. My concern is with who, where, and when the change of copyright status was made to the TriMet logo. I created File:TriMet logo simplified.svg in 2013 because, at that time, the logo was ©opyrighted.
@Magog the Ogre@MB298: you moved the file File:TriMet logo 2.svg to Commons; can you shed some light on the change from WP:NFCC? Useddenim (talk) 20:29, 4 September 2018 (UTC) 00:38, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

@Useddenim: which file did I delete? I don't know what you're referring to. Magog the Ogre (tc) 23:02, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Magog the Ogre: Apologies; I cut ’n’ pasted the wrong user. Useddenim (talk) 00:38, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

@Train2104: Do you know anything about the change of copyright status? Useddenim (talk) 00:38, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Empty {{redirect category shell}}[edit]

Regarding this edit to Wharf Cable Television: {{Redirect category shell}} (i.e. where Template:This is a redirect redirects) should not be placed without parameters by experienced editors (see the large red notice on the parameter-less template itself or at Template:Redirect category shell/doc). {{R fully protected}} can be used instead to the same effect. I would normally just remedy the situation (I monitor CAT:MISCR) but I cannot do so unilaterally as the page is fully protected, so I thought it was worth a note here. Warm regards, — Godsy (TALKCONT) 03:49, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

I am not very familiar with all the different parameters, but I knew someone would show up to advise me if I left it blank. What other parameters can be used in this case because I like the pretty box that {{Redirect category shell}} produces? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 07:13, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
As Hong Kong Cable Television was formerly known as Wharf Cable Television, {{r from historic name}} works. There is a full list of rcats at WP:TMR. — Godsy (TALKCONT) 08:07, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay I've done that — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:39, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

George Galloway[edit]

Saw George Galloway pop up on my watchlist today, and was just curious why you removed the protection on the page? I specifically declined a request to lower the protection level and saw through one of the RfCs on talkpage to help edits still get through. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 23:47, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi. I did not know that a request had been declined. I acted on a request on the article's talk page from an editor in good standing, which asserted that the dispute had been resolved. I hope things have calmed down and the lower protection will be adequate, but if you strongly believe that full protection is necessary then I won't argue about it.
