Terry Dykstra[edit]

Hi Paul, I have been mostly striking out lately, but do you see anything for Terry Dykstra? I had been emptying out my list of DRAFT bio articles, but then lately I have been filling it back up.  :P BOZ (talk) 04:38, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

There's a Terry Dykstra who is executive director of the Baltimore Ronald MacDonald House, and a Terry Dykstra who writes a lot of letters to the editor in Topeka, Kansas. No artist that I can find. Sorry BOZ. Paul Erik (talk)(contribs) 14:23, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for checking. BOZ (talk) 17:55, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a discussion on the backlog of unpatrolled files, consensus was found to create a new user right for autopatrolling file uploads. Implementation progress can be tracked on Phabricator.
  • The BLPPROD grandfather clause, which stated that unreferenced biographies of living persons were only eligible for proposed deletion if they were created after March 18, 2010, has been removed following an RfC.
  • An RfC has closed with consensus to allow proposed deletion of files. The implementation process is ongoing.
  • After an unsuccessful proposal to automatically grant IP block exemption, consensus was found to relax the criteria for granting the user right from needing it to wanting it.

Technical news

  • After a recent RfC, moved pages will soon be featured in a queue similar to Special:NewPagesFeed and require patrolling. Moves by administrators, page movers, and autopatrolled editors will be automatically marked as patrolled.
  • Cookie blocks have been deployed. This extends the current autoblock system by setting a cookie for each block, which will then autoblock the user if they switch accounts, even under a new IP.

One of your blocks[edit]

User:2001:8003:4161:D200:3584:C39C:2F47:A7C0 is User:Dylan_Florida. A rangeblock covering this specific IP had just expired, so I re-instated it. DMacks (talk) 05:47, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, DMacks. Paul Erik (talk)(contribs) 05:56, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
