so bare[edit]

so white, what a fright! JarrahTree 10:18, 28 June 2016 (UTC) so quiet, so bare... JarrahTree 01:39, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Currently distracted @ http://www.moondyne.id.au/famtree. The crossover is amazing. Moondyne (talk) 14:21, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
you saw https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fremantle_submarine_base yeah? JarrahTree 10:08, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
very very slow slow - but now there are Western Australian emergency of March 1944 and Western Australian emergency of March 1942 JarrahTree 14:49, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
Cool. It reminded me that my mum worked in the Byford Armament Depot when she left school in the early 50s. Moondyne (talk) 14:58, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
Byford being a railway connected location, and woodman point likewise will probably end up in some way in some sort of article, but most of the material I have about woodman is all WP:OR or primary, unfortunately - interesting some aspects of byford were still intact in mid 1960s...

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Moondyne. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

weird[edit]

10 years ago you were editing Vosper - and Hesp came along and lost the Sunday Times connection...[[1]] and it never has been put back in, despite the dubious lead to the sunday times... weird and weird JarrahTree 10:37, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure I follow you. The sentence including Venetia Ann Nicholson was added by H. and is still there. Moondyne (talk) 14:08, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
fair enough. when i was looking at the article about Vosper, I could not find any reference to his founding the sunday times in the current recent format of the article - I went back to the edit of 2006 and that is where it seemed to be the loss of any reference to the sunday times.. as far as I read the diffs. JarrahTree 14:29, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
good to see you're back putting some sense into this damned jungle JarrahTree 10:36, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Moondyne.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Arnold Cook[edit]

Hi Ian, you may or may not have seen the activity at that article, but his daughter Leigh has tried to make some corrections to it and they've been reverted. See the sections entitled "changes to article Arnold Cook" and "edit to Arnold Cook article" at User talk:Oshwah. I think you'd be best positioned to handle this, if you have the time and inclination. I'll leave a message at Leigh's talk page. Graham87 15:01, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi Graham. Apologies for not responding sooner. I've been completely offline for several weeks due to some health issues (which are now resolved). From a cursory look it appears that the matter of the article is in hand. If not, please feel free to deal with it as you think best. All the very best to you and your family. Ian.

  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.
