Recreating a page[edit]

Sorry to bother you, sir. I am attempting to recreate a page for my company, InfoCepts, that you deleted more than a decade ago. I would like to assure you that over the last decade, InfoCepts has grown well as a BA-IM company, and now has the capability to become a well-sourced, regularly searched page. Kindly allow us to create a page that will assuredly be mutually valuable to both parties. Sincerely, AshVaidya (talk) 07:38, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello. Thank you for responding. I understand how it may seem difficult to envision an unbiased company page from one of its associates. However, I implore you to consider the page I create. Having referred to Wikipedia for over a decade and a half, I do realize what the free encyclopedia considers admissible. About what you said regarding page creation by someone else, I trust you realize the pitfalls of being present in a tier-two Indian city. It is for this reason that creating a Wiki page becomes all the more vital. Most of the people seeking information about InfoCepts only know enough to search for it on Wikipedia and Google. I also speak from personal experience. People do want information about our company from a trusted source. Hoping for a positive response. Sincerely, AshVaidya (talk)

Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)[edit]

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.
