The Redux Archives
Hi! Welcome to Wikipedia. When you get a chance, drop us a note at Wikipedia:New user log to introduce yourself.
If you made any edits before you got an account, you might be interested in assigning those to your username.
You can sign your name on talk pages by using " ~~~ " for your username and " ~~~~ " for your username and a timestamp.
Welcome is a good place to start. Wikipedia:How does one edit a page gives editing help. Wikipedia:Manual of Style gives formatting info. Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines tell about the principles we operate on. It's important, but don't try to read it all now. Wikipedia:Help covers a broad range of useful topics. Wikipedia:Village pump is a place to ask questions. Wikipedia:Show preview explains how to double-check your edits before saving.
You should also feel free to drop me a question on my talk page. I'll answer if I'm here.
Happy editing, Isomorphic 04:10, 8 Mar 2004 (UTC)
- Congratulations, you're an admin! Please try to be conservative in the use of your new capabilities. Best regards, The Uninvited Co., Inc. 22:41, 28 July 2005 (UTC)
- Ok, after I pestered Suisi, she gave you the oversite bit. Happy editing. Raul654 00:03, 25 July 2006 (UTC)
- Hi Redux. As requested on meta, your check-user flag is now active.
- Please subscribe to checkuser-l and email email@example.com so that the listadmins know that you are allowed on the mailing list. (The list may contain confidential information). Bye. --Paginazero 06:35, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
- Hi Redux. As requested on meta, your check-user flag is now active.
- It seems from your latest post to the Bureaucrat noticeboard that you haven't seen how fast this issue has moved. Administrators were given the ability to assign and remove "rollback" permissions a few days ago, see the user rights log  or the new Requests for rollback board.

I was happy to see your name appear in my watchlist just now and was even happier when I read your edit summary here. Welcome back, Redux; it's good you've returned. I remember you being the bureaucrat who made me an admin back in the day. :) Best. Acalamari 18:23, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
- Thank you Acalamari!!! It is nice to be back. I had been meaning to for quite a while. Still lots of catching up to do, but I'll get there. Excellent to see that you have stuck around all these years :). It was my pleasure to "push the button" for your promotion. And it shows that the good, honest work we have been doing on the project for more than a decade really paid off. Redux (talk) 18:28, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
- Good to see you back again. It's been a long while. :) - Mailer Diablo 02:26, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
- Thank you Mailer!!! Nice to see you're still around as well :) It's a pleaseure to be back! :)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Camille Muffat, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Figaro (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
"especifically" is probably misspelled.
My title for this message is taken from the top of the #4 US-Google hit for the word. The #1 hit is from Merriam-Webster, listing a "new word", seemingly explaining it as a portmanteau word, but contributed by someone who offered their name but no title or affiliation with the name. The #2 is a partial match to the entry for the Catalan word "especific", in en:Wikt, and other en:WP and en:Wikt hits are on a talk page and in descriptions of other words' specific domains, respectively -- by contributors who i think in each case were a non-native English-speaker. #5 is the personal name of a 'net-graphical paper-doll on a choose-from-this-list-of-languages page. I haven't checked OED, but i'm pretty sure English use of the word is somewhere on the range between super-peculiar and bizarre. I admire the many non-native speakers of English whose English is far better than my only even-marginally-usable second language, but IMO this term should be thot of as a trap.

Implementation of Wikipedia:Bureaucrats#Bureaucrat activity requirements
You are receiving this message because you are listed at Wikipedia:Bureaucrats#Former bureaucrats. Writ Keeper pointed out that these users were not directly notified of the community discussion ending August 2015, where consensus was reached to remove the bureaucrat permissions of users who have not participated in bureaucrat activity for three years.
As of 1 October 2015, any former bureaucrat who has not participated in bureaucrat activity for three years that wishes their bureaucrat permissions restored will need to request reinstatement at RFB.
If you intend to return to bureaucrat activity, please request restoration of permissions before 1 October 2015 or three years passes since your last bureaucrat activity, whichever is later.
|“||Bureaucrats are expected to exercise the duties granted by their role while remaining cognizant of relevant community standards concerning their tasks. In addition to the "Inactive bureaucrat accounts" requirements, if a bureaucrat does not participate in bureaucrat activity for over three years, their bureaucrat permissions may be removed. The user must be notified on their talk page and by email one month before the removal, and again and a few days prior to the removal. If the user does not return to bureaucrat activity, another bureaucrat may request the removal of permissions at meta:Steward requests/Permissions. Permissions removed for not meeting bureaucrat activity requirements may be re-obtained through a new request for bureaucratship.
To assist with the implementation of this requirement, please see Wikipedia:Bureaucrat activity. Modeled after Wikipedia:Inactive administrators and similar to that process, the log page will be created on 1 September 2015. Bureaucrats who have not met the activity requirements as of that date will be notified by email (where possible) and on their talk page to advise of the pending removal.
If the notified user does not return to bureaucrat activity and the permissions are removed, they will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFB. Removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon the affected user in any way.
- Please note that any potential restoration of permissions is also subject to Wikipedia:Bureaucrats#Inactive bureaucrat accounts: a former bureaucrat who has been completely inactive for three years would need to seek reinstatement at WP:RFB notwithstanding the above. –xenotalk 12:28, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
- Humm, I see. Well, I haven't been completely inactive since my original wikibreak until now, but I was inactive for a period a bit longer than 3 years between 2009 and 2012. I'm not sure if that's red tape, but I'm also not interested in "gaming the rules". As I had mentioned some time back, I was not particularly concerned with getting the tools back, given my inactivity. I had only considered that I might jump back in and maybe help given the "special procedure" mentioned in your original message. But even so I would look to get some kind of feedback or consensus from the Admin/Bcrat community before even considering putting in the request. If there would be bureaucratic concerns (no pun intended) which would require me to "wiki-lawyer" in order to get the tools back, I would think that the original purpose of trying to help would end up being defeated.

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

I was recently on the Boulder City, Nevada page, and it cites Robert M. Broadbent (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_N._Broadbent). However, that page shows as being deleted by you. Besides being the Clark County Aviation Director, he was also the first mayor of Boulder City, Nevada. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boulder_City,_Nevada). I want to resurrect the page, adding other tidbits about this person who is important in the history of Southern Nevada (Clark County is where Las Vegas is located). Wikipedia rules state that I should contact the person who did the deleting, beforehand. I'm doing that now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WaltCD (talk • contribs) 14:39, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
