General Sanctions notification - Cryptocurrencies[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg Please read this notification carefully, it contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

A community decision has authorised the use of general sanctions for pages related to the blockchain and cryptocurrencies. The details of these sanctions are described here. All pages that are broadly related to these topics are subject to a one revert per twenty-four hours restriction, as described here.

Can I kindly request you to share your email id or any other contact details for me to speak to you about the recent deletion of Locus page. I am in extreme embarrassment after what has happened. Please understand I am just flabbergasted with the consequences of this deletion. We indeed celebrated the fact the Locus has received a seat on Wikipedia after 4 years of successful operations and achievements. This sudden deletion has left us in a huge dilemma. Please I am pleading here to help me.

Note that per this discussion on my talk page, I have restored the article and relisted its deletion discussion. North America1000 12:36, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Talk:Disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts[edit]

Thanks for your speedy action on this talk page, however I am embarrassed to say that I accidentally did almost the same thing I complained about, that is, I hit the wrong button and added a speedy delete tag to Talk:Disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts instead of User talk:NTK/Test.

I've reverted this, but it would have the side effect of blocking a move back if that decision were made, which was not my intent. Can you delete Talk:Disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts again and add the redirect? Sorry. 😳 NTK (talk) 16:03, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

You (or anyone else) definitely should not be moving that page without consensus; and a WP:ROUNDROBIN page move will work without doing anything there. power~enwiki (π, ν) 16:06, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
I have moved the page back to its original location, per the following rationale - "While the rationale of "Disappearance" no longer being accurate is correct, no move should have taken place without the completion of this discussion to which NTK referred in their previous edit summary. You can't suggest a consensus discussion, but unilaterally make a decision on your own to move to one of the options being discussed within that conversation." I have already noted my support of the suggested title ("Death of...") in the discussion on the Talk page StrikerforceTalk 18:10, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the pointer but WP:ROUNDROBIN without suppressredirect rights (normal users) using the "Classic Sequence" requires admin intervention twice in series to delete created redirects. So I don't think that's a better solution for moving onto edited redirect pages than Wikipedia:Requested moves/Technical requests which only needs a single admin intervention and doesn't break anything while waiting on a admin for the delete between steps 2 and 3.

Articles by Rafreyna[edit]

I respectfully ask you to stop flagging my articles for deletion. Many of my articles involve major technologies used by the US Department of Defense and other agencies, so I'm unsure why you're flagging them for notability. I would be happy to speak with you directly about how my articles can be improved, but will need more details on where they are lacking. Rafreyna (talk) 13:23, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your recent work patrolling new articles, I reviewed some of your recent work and it looks well done. Keep up the good work! Cheers, — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 04:04, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Some of the Asian games articles (such as Pencak silat at the 2018 Asian Games – Women's ganda) weren't perfect (as they're on events about to happen), but those will get cleaned up during the event and there's no point leaving them in the queue. power~enwiki (π, ν) 04:06, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
I agree. The 'events waiting to happen' ones are a bit annoying, but there isn't much point leaving them in the queue. I just dropped a few tags on it in case the original editor fails to come back and fill it in (unlikely but for completeness sake), they can feel free to remove the tags once the info is filled in. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 04:09, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Lucha Libre Elite[edit]

Hello Power~enwiki. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Lucha Libre Elite, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: competing in notable events indicates significance. Thank you. SoWhy 07:17, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Power! Thank you so much for reviewing many of the Iowa political articles I have created. Only a very few such as yourself have done so, so I very truly do appreciate it, and hope to see you around! Thanks again! --Southern Iowan (talk) 21:21, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Too many cooks...[edit]

... end up edit-conflicting trying to improve an article. Whoops! Primefac (talk) 16:56, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Yup. I figured it was best to do a clean revert (as the edit was obviously promotional and from obvious autoconfirmed gaming) and restore whatever changes were relevant. Your change about the mention of battery in the lead was reverted by Lepricavark; it's probably worth discussing that on the talk page. I don't see how a variety of (likely-paid) "30 under 30" awards (really just blurbs in slideshow-style infotainment) can possibly be relevant; if you disagree that should be on the talk page as well. power~enwiki (π, ν) 16:59, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Removal of Ces Cru album Catastrophic Event Specialists[edit]


It seems that you've removed the page I created for the album Catastrophic Event Specialists ( I'm not entirely sure why, since the only information on the page was basic info like release date, track list and credits. These are all info that are found in the official CD booklet, and I even found an online source that documents that the info was correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fayzenith (talkcontribs) 13:42, 5 September 2018 (UTC)


Hello Power~enwiki,

Thanks for the ping. I was working IRL and could not look into it promptly. By the time I could, the problem had already been resolved by one of our capable colleagues. I do appreciate it, though. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 03:59, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Changes needed for the sub-section "Restructuring state enterprises" on the Wiki concept "Business"[edit]


The text about BPM ( under the sub-section called "Restructuring state enterprises" sounds like it's coming from a BPM salesman. BPM is much more relevant to business process improvement than to restructuring state (or corporate) enterprises. See and

So if we want to use relevant information for the section "Restructuring state enterprises", than we should remove BPM entirely. Maybe have a new section under Business called "Business Process Modeling" and then refer to this instead:

Btw sorry about the change to the text itself, I just forgot that I can use this forum instead.

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Power~enwiki, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).
