SOLRAD 1 FA is ready! :)[edit]

I've added the details of GRAB's ELINT collection and transmission under the Spacecraft section. I think the article is ready to go.

Could you please provide the complete Bamford reference? Thank you for all your help! --Neopeius (talk) 15:27, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello again. While I am amenable to including material from the Bamford reference, I cannot include it if I don't have it. Could you please give me the complete citation and, if able, a URL to access it? Thank you! :) --Neopeius (talk) 02:35, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
Hello out there. :) SOLRAD 1 should be ready for you. Thanks again for your help. --Neopeius (talk) 14:04, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
Hello out there. :) Could you give SOLRAD 1 a final judgment, please? The nomination turns on your assessment, and I've addressed your main issues (breadth and completeness). Thank you! --Neopeius (talk) 13:32, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited ALGOL 68, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Parallel processing (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

ArbCom 2019 special circular[edit]

Icon of a white exclamation mark within a black triangle
Administrators must secure their accounts

The Arbitration Committee may require a new RfA if your account is compromised.

This message was sent to all administrators following a recent motion. Thank you for your attention. For the Arbitration Committee, Cameron11598 02:14, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


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.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

DYK for ASV Mark III radar[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 10 May 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article ASV Mark III radar, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the ASV Mark III radar was able to hunt down German U-boats with deadly efficiency in part because of a little white lie? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/ASV Mark III radar. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, ASV Mark III radar), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
