Speedy deletion nomination of Template:0/[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:0/ requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it must be substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page, where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Lfdder (talk) 10:56, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Main Page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of the article List of municipalities of the Netherlands know that it will be appearing as the main page featured list on September 2, 2013. You can view the TFL blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/September 2, 2013. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured list directors The Rambling Man (talk · contribs), Dabomb87 (talk · contribs) or Giants2008 (talk · contribs), or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured list. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. Face-smile.svg Thanks! Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 01:01, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Red linked templates[edit]

Greetings Patrick, I am working to clean up some of the database reports and I noticed that a couple of your subpages have some deleted templates that are appearing on Wikipedia:Database reports/Transclusions of deleted templates/1 and Wikipedia:Database reports/Transclusions of deleted templates/2. Since you are still an active editor I don't want to mess with your subpages but I was wondering if you would mind taking a look and maybe udpating some of the red links or something so they will stop popping on the reports. Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions. Kumioko (talk) 17:50, 5 September 2013 (UTC)‎

Your admin status[edit]

Hello. I'm a steward. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc.) was adopted by community consensus recently. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.

You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for 2 years) on vlswiki, where you are an administrator. Since vlswiki does not have its own administrators' rights review process, the global one applies.

If you want to keep your rights, you should inform the community of the wiki about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your rights, please contact the stewards at m:Stewards' noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish to continue to maintain the rights, and demonstrate a continued requirement to maintain these rights.

We stewards will evaluate the responses. If there is no response at all after approximately one month, we will proceed to remove your administrative rights. In cases of doubt, we will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review. If you have any questions, please contact us on m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Best regards, Rschen7754 22:00, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Degrees of freedom in wallpaper groups[edit]

Hi Patrick,

I am not sure how you obtained the numbers of degrees of freedom in [Wallpaper_group]. Could you explain please? | Section here.

Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.128.169.13 (talk) 12:28, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

In brief:
  • p3.., p4.., p6..: position (2), size (1), orientation (1)
  • p1: translation vectors (4)
  • p2: translation vectors (4), position (2)
  • pm: translation vectors (3), position (1)
  • pg: translation vectors (3), position (1)
  • cm: translation vectors (3), position (1)
  • pmm: translation vectors (3), position (2)
  • pmg: translation vectors (3), position (2)
  • pgg: translation vectors (3), position (2)
  • cmm: translation vectors (3), position (2)

Thus the numbers of degrees of freedom are:

  • 6 for p2
  • 5 for pmm, pmg, pgg, and cmm
  • 4 for the rest.

Proposed deletion of Den Haag (novel)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Den Haag (novel) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unremarkable novel.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Sorry, it seems like I've been nominating a lot of your templates for deletion recently. I'm not trying to single you out, I promise! It's just that your templates seem to keep popping up in Category:Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls, which I've been working through. And I'm afraid to say that I have another one to add to the list - Template:For loop/old. (The discussion is at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2014 November 13#Template:For loop/old.)

Speedy deletion nomination of Proximity[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Proximity requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Invitation to subscribe to the edit filter mailing list[edit]

Hi, as a user in the edit filter manager user group we wanted to let you know about the new wikipedia-en-editfilters mailing list. As part of our recent efforts to improve the use of edit filters on the English Wikipedia it has been established as a venue for internal discussion by edit filter managers regarding private filters (those only viewable by administrators and edit filter managers) and also as a means by which non-admins can ask questions about hidden filters that wouldn't be appropriate to discuss on-wiki. As an edit filter manager we encourage you to subscribe; the more users we have in the mailing list the more useful it will be to the community. If you subscribe we will send a short email to you through Wikipedia to confirm your subscription, but let us know if you'd prefer another method of verification. I'd also like to take the opportunity to invite you to contribute to the proposed guideline for edit filter use at WP:Edit filter/Draft and the associated talk page. Thank you!

Speedy deletion nomination of Cuddling[edit]

Hello Patrick,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Cuddling for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. ArcticGriffin (talk) 00:45, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

  • *facepalm* Unfortunately, there were several glitches that happened and resulted in this. When I was looking at the oldest articles that hadn't been reviewed on the new pages feed, it showed Cuddling as a blank page with no content and said it hadn't been reviewed since 2003. I also searched up "Cuddling" in the search bar and saw the exact page with no content. This is why I tagged it for speedy deletion. It didn't display any redirect on it, nor did it redirect me to Hug. My apologies for this mistake. ArcticGriffin (talk) 20:28, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Patrick. 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. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
