Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Philaweb.

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.

Undoing my edit[edit]

Hello, I see that you undid one of my edits here. It is unclear to me why you did this. This category meets the empty category speedy deletion criterion. In fact, it appears the category was created over a year too early. Surely you cannot expect this category to be unused and ignored for over a year? Please undo yourself or provide a reasonable explanation for your edit, or I will be escalating this matter to WP:AN/I. Thanks, 73.11.16.51 (talk) 23:30, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

@73.11.16.51: Hello, I found an article that I thought can be indexed to the category. Unfortunately, another user has reverted my edit, which is why the category is empty again. You may have a look at my contributions to get clarity on what I have been doing. Talk/♥фĩłдωəß♥\Work 14:20, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
I took a look at the edits you are referring to. It looks like someone removed the category because there is a chance the election will take place in 2017 and not 2018. In any case, this is a dispute that should be resolved on that article's talk page. If that's accurate, then the editor who removed the category is probably right to remove it. However, until that dispute is resolved, the category is currently empty. It has to be tagged for 7 days before it can be deleted, so tagging it like I did is proper. If there is consensus to re-add the category and it becomes re-populated, then the tag can be removed. If the category has already been deleted, then the category can be recreated. Either way this category should not be sitting around empty through all of 2017 waiting to see if Latvia has an election then or in 2018. I'll be undoing your edit and re-adding the empty tag for now - please don't remove it again unless the category no longer meets the requirements for speedy deletion. 73.11.16.51 (talk) 19:09, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
Actually, it looks like you un-did yourself already. Thanks! Again, the category can be re-created when populated. 73.11.16.51 (talk) 19:14, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
