Please watch the notes on the section before changing apparently incorrect spelling on Annie in Wonderland. You aren't the first, and I don't suppose you'll be the last, but I rendered the sleeve notes verbatim for a reason. Thanks. --Rodhullandemu (please reply here - contribs) 17:36, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC about the deletion of drafts closed with a consensus to change the wording of WP:NMFD. Specifically, a draft that has been repeatedly resubmitted and declined at AfC without any substantial improvement may be deleted at MfD if consensus determines that it is unlikely to ever meet the requirements for mainspace and it otherwise meets one of the reasons for deletion outlined in the deletion policy.
  • A request for comment closed with a consensus that the {{promising draft}} template cannot be used to indefinitely prevent a WP:G13 speedy deletion nomination.

Technical news

  • Starting on July 9, the WMF Security team, Trust & Safety, and the broader technical community will be seeking input on an upcoming change that will restrict editing of site-wide JavaScript and CSS to a new technical administrators user group. Bureaucrats and stewards will be able to grant this right per a community-defined process. The intention is to reduce the number of accounts who can edit frontend code to those who actually need to, which in turn lessens the risk of malicious code being added that compromises the security and privacy of everyone who accesses Wikipedia. For more information, please review the FAQ.
  • Syntax highlighting has been graduated from a Beta feature on the English Wikipedia. To enable this feature, click the highlighter icon (Codemirror-icon.png) in your editing toolbar (or under the hamburger menu in the 2017 wikitext editor). This feature can help prevent you from making mistakes when editing complex templates.
  • IP-based cookie blocks should be deployed to English Wikipedia in July (previously scheduled for June). This will cause the block of a logged-out user to be reloaded if they change IPs. This means in most cases, you may no longer need to do /64 range blocks on residential IPv6 addresses in order to effectively block the end user. It will also help combat abuse from IP hoppers in general. For the time being, it only affects users of the desktop interface.

Miscellaneous

  • Currently around 20% of admins have enabled two-factor authentication, up from 17% a year ago. If you haven't already enabled it, please consider doing so. Regardless if you use 2FA, please practice appropriate account security by ensuring your password is secure and unique to Wikimedia.

KODA[edit]

You may want to re-add the data you changed from your last KODA edit as I had to revert previous edits an IPv6 user made that were against WP:NOTRADIOGUIDE, WP:OR, and biased language. I believe this user to be a problem IP editor as they seem obsessed with adding everything about KODA & making the station look good.Stereorock (talk) 03:32, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Thanks - done. Mlaffs (talk) 03:35, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Please help me with my college radio station's wiki page[edit]

Hello Mlaffs,

I saw that you edit a lot of radio stations wikis and thought i would reach out to ask for your help. I am the station manager for WWPV, Saint Michael's College campus radio station. I tried to find WWPV's wiki page and found that WVTX used to be the WWPV page. Since we switched frequencies, WWPV doesn't have a wiki page and WVTX has not been broadcasting. Do you think it would be possible to switch the title of the WVTX back to WWPV and make a new page for vermont's public radio channel WVTX? All of our station's history is on that page. I would love to keep that together instead of trying to make a new page.

I would really appreciate your help or any guidance you could offer.

Thanks, Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wwpv the mike (talkcontribs) 18:56, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
