Hello Pharos:


Did you know ... that back in 1885, Wikipedia editors wrote Good Articles with axes, hammers and chisels?

Thank you for your contributions to this encyclopedia using 21st century technology. I hope you don't get any unnecessary blisters.

Wikipedia Day is always a big day for Wikimedia NYC. While we cannot meet in person, we still have something special planned. We will begin the event with the debut of a new video celebrating our community. This will be followed by a panel discussion with some of the people you'll see in the video talking about Wikipedia's 20th anniversary, Wikimedia New York City, and the amazing work they do on Wikimedia projects.

The event will be broadcast live via YouTube. Feel free to ask questions for the panel through the chat!

We will also have some NYC wiki trivia you can participate in, with confectionery prizes.

Updated DYK query.svgOn 31 May 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Museum of French Art, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Museum of French Art once exhibited Napoleon's penis? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Museum of French Art. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Museum of French Art), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Hi, Pharos. Long time no see. Hope you're doing well. I noticed you made some additions to Sixth borough, some of which was indeed supported by the cited New York Times article (like the "Lower Lower Manhattan" bit), but the mention of T. Kennard Thomson was not, so I reverted it. I tried searching through that NYT article, and couldn't find mention of him, nor was he mentioned anywhere else in the Wikipedia article.

possible identity theft?[edit]

@Pharos: I was unable to log into WikiConference:2021/Main Page as User:DavidMCEddy a few minutes ago. I've been "User:DavidMCEddy" since 2010-03-26 in many Wikimedia Foundation projects. I tried to reset my password for WikiConference:User:DavidMCEddy and couldn't. So I registered WikiConference:User:LauraEckenberg. It accepted that.

I'm writing you, because if someone else is actually using WikiConference:User:DavidMCEddy, I would consider it identity theft. It's probably just something silly in the User ID management in WikiConference North America. However, I felt a need to ask about it.

Thanks for all you do to try to increase access to the sum of all human knowledge. DavidMCEddy (talk) 17:58, 5 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The system would not let me vote[edit]

Per your request, "This is the last day to vote", I reviewed and ranked the 72 candidates I found with statement. In trying to enter my ranks, I could not find some of the candidates on the list. After ranking roughly half of them, I tried to submit my votes. It said I had to log in to vote. I tried to log in using my usual login. It did not accept that. Then it said, "You do not need to be logged in to vote."

If the number of votes seem reasonable and there are few complaints like this, please ignore. Otherwise, I will testify that (a) the voting system was very hard to use, and (b) it seemed not to accept my vote. DavidMCEddy (talk) 01:33, 25 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How we will see unregistered users[edit]

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

I think you created this article that I wanted to propose for deletion. Of course, I'm open minded to alternative opinions and will remove the proposed deletion if there is not consensus. What do you think?

You might also notice I deleted some weak newer citations that were added since you created the article some years ago.

But the spam I got today was confusing and random, and I'm so glad that I got the same random message as everyone else.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.--MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:58, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is no set agenda for the second half of the call - feel free to add your item to the list of topics in the etherpad [2]. Come and talk to us! Ask us anything, or tell us anything, related to public policy and advocacy initiatives for free knowledge online. For example: You want to learn more about our team and our current initiatives You would like to share a policy development or advocacy campaign idea and would like to get feedback or support You have questions about a specific WMF policy priority or development

Hope to see you there.--FPutz (WMF) (talk) 14:03, 7 June 2022 (UTC) ___ [1] https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Public_policy/Conversation_hours_and_Events#Upcoming_Conversation_Hours [2] https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/Agenda_%26_Notes%2C_Global_Advocacy_Conversation_HoursReply[reply]
