DYK nom needs attention
SOLRAD 1 FA is ready! :)
I've added the details of GRAB's ELINT collection and transmission under the Spacecraft section. I think the article is ready to go.
- 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)
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
Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)
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)
