The album that was in this category Pernambuco falando para o mundo is interesting as its name is the slogan of Radio Jornal di Commercio. There's probably more information in Music, National Identity and the Politics of Location: Between the Global and the Local (2016) and Antonio Carlos Nóbrega em acordes e textos armoriais (2011).

Notice

The article Peter Stafford (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Per WP:2DABS

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Reminder[edit]

Editing restriction Regardless of the editing method (i.e. manual, semi-automatic, or automatic; from any account), Rich Farmbrough is indefinitely prohibited from making cosmetic changes to wikicode that have no effect on the rendered page (excepting those changes that are built-in to stock AWB or those that have demonstrable consensus or BAG approval). This includes but is not limited to: changing templates to template redirects, changing template redirects to templates (see here for AWB stock changes on this item, with the understanding that bypassing template redirects will only be done when there is a substantive edit being done), changing the spacing around headers and ordered lists (except to make an aberration consistent with the rest of the page), and changing the capitalization of templates. Furthermore, prior to orphaning/emptying and deleting categories or templates, the appropriate processes (WP:CFD/WP:TFD) should be engaged. Sanction imposed per this AN discussion, to be enforced by escalating blocks
Editing restriction Rich Farmbrough is not permitted to make any mass changes to articles, broadly construed, and regardless of editing method, cosmetic or not, without a demonstrable consensus from the community that he is explicitly permitted to do so. Further, he is entirely prohibited from using Auto Wiki Browser or directly making any edits to Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/Template redirects or any other page related to the governance and use of automated or semi-automated tools. Any such changes desired must be proposed on the appropriate talk page, and may only be enacted by other parties. This sanction does not replace or nullify other pre-existing sanctions on this user, and may be appealed no sooner than one year from the date it was approved by the community. Sanction imposed per this ANI discussion.
Creation restriction Regardless of the editing method (i.e. manual, semi-automatic, or automatic; from any account), Rich Farmbrough is indefinitely prohibited from mass creating pages in any namespace, unless prior community approval for the specific mass creation task is documented. The definition of "mass creation" and the spirit of the restriction follows Wikipedia:BOTPOL#Mass article creation. Sanction imposed following this ANI discussion and the prior editing restriction, to be enforced by escalating blocks
Editing restriction Consensus in respect of Rich Farmbrough's editing restrictions shall be defined as approval at WP:BRFA or a formally closed WP:RFC with more than ten non-canvassed participants. Sanction imposed per this ANI discussion.

I'm fairly sure this is not needed, but for complete clarity, the restrictions above are applicable — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 18:35, 31 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Wikimedians for Sustainable Development - December 2023 Newsletter[edit]

This is our twenty-seventh newsletter, a sort of year-in-review for 2023.

Dear Wikimedians for Sustainable Development,

As we bid farewell to 2023, we reflect on a year that has been an uneven year for our user group. While the journey has been marked by some truly inspiring events, most of our efforts have been largely uncoordinated and the user group hasn't been the support it could have been. Yet, there's a glimmer of hope and a world of potential for 2024.

Highlights of 2023:

Newsletters Galore
We kicked off the year with zeal, sharing updates and inspiration through four newsletters. The number of things happening in the movement is astounding, but we need to rethink the format of the newsletter going into the next year.
Growing Strong
The Wikimedians for Sustainable Development family welcomed 33 new members in 2023. Your passion and dedication continue to inspire us, and we look forward to nurturing this community spirit in the year ahead.
Wikimania Talks
Our voices echoed far and wide at Wikimania, where several members of our community took the virtual stage to share insights and ideas about everything from Wikipedians-in-Residence's to open data. Your contributions showcased our commitment to sustainable development on a global scale.
Content Creation Magic
Throughout the year, our extended community demonstrated incredible dedication to expanding the knowledge base on Wikipedia. Countless hours were spent creating and curating content that aligns with our mission, contributing to a more sustainable digital ecosystem.
Campaigning hard
We saw a large variety of campaigns, from writing challenges to editathons. The willingness to experiment with new formats and partners, as well as learning from past efforts, shows great promise for the future.

Acknowledging Challenges:

While we celebrate these achievements, we acknowledge that 2023 presented its fair share of challenges. A lack of global coordination reminded us that the road to sustainable development is not always linear. However, it is precisely these challenges that fuel our determination to work together more cohesively in the coming year and proof that the user group is needed.

Hopeful Anticipation for 2024:

As we turn the page to 2024, let's carry forward the lessons learned and the successes celebrated. We are optimistic that, with renewed energy and a collective commitment, we will overcome obstacles and create an even more impactful and connected Wikimedians for Sustainable Development community.

Here's to a year of collaboration, growth, and making a lasting impact on the world through our shared passion for sustainability. Together, we can turn challenges into opportunities and pave the way for a brighter future.

Wishing you all a joyous holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Warm regards, User:Ainali, User:Daniel Mietchen

PS. We have started writing our yearly report, please add your activities to it.

@Rich Farmbrough I'm just wondering: how did you know and get access to my draft? How did you publish my draft? Will I be able to create an article without needing to be reviewed because some people got their article approved and got a template that they no longer need their other drafts to be reviewed, but since you did that for me, will I get it?

Since you have made at least 10 edits over more than four days, you can now create articles yourself without posting a request. However, you may continue submitting work to Articles for creation if you prefer.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to ask at the help desk. Once you have made at least 10 edits and had an account for at least four days, you will have the option to create articles yourself without posting a request to Articles for creation.

If you would like to help us improve this process, please consider leaving us some feedback.

Thanks again, and happy editing!

  1. I saw a request about fixing a citation.
  2. Drafts are not private, any one can see them and anyone can edit them.
  3. You should be able to create articles now. One of the main reasons for the Draft system is that new users were getting their articles deleted, because they had no idea what to do. This system is supposed to make it easier, but in some ways it makes it harder, as you will have seen.

Rich, were you thinking about archiving this page anytime soon? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:49, 14 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, it's a huge headache. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 10:57, 14 February 2024 (UTC).[reply]
It looks like you can just uncomment the code at the top of this page when you are ready to resume archiving. –Novem Linguae (talk) 17:25, 14 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It might be the way to go, but there are many threads that need attention. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 17:27, 14 February 2024 (UTC).[reply]
Guidelines suggest keeping the page size below 75kB. Yours is currently 335kB, so more than 4 times over-sized. Please could you reduce the size to below 75kB as soon as possible? Thanks — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 17:38, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
3 weeks after my request, and you still have not archived your talk page. Would you mind if I manually archived anything older than 3 months? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:52, 8 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I would mind if I were him. He's already noted there are threads that need attention. The size of his talk page is not interfering with the project. Leave it be. --Hammersoft (talk) 14:25, 8 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Editor experience invitation[edit]

Hi Rich. I don't think we've really interacted before but I noticed you in my watchlist doing some copyediting. :) Anyways, I've been trying to interview as many experienced editors as I can the past few months here. Feel free to pitch in if you're interested or to pass if you're not. Clovermoss🍀 (talk) 15:19, 15 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Welcome back[edit]

story · music · places

Good to see your name again on my watchlist! I meant to say so sooner, and realize: I better give thanks in the morning ;) - The hidden croci were captured last year, on a cemetery after a funeral; they stand for hope for me. Best wishes, and I hope you enjoy my stories, music and places. -- Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:06, 21 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you so much. The crocus is a favourite flower of mine, not just as a sign of renewal, but because I remember learning about the crocus, snowdrop and daffodil as a small child. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 09:09, 21 February 2024 (UTC).[reply]
thank you, - more music and flowers - yes, crocus - on Rossini's rare birthday --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:27, 29 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Atimes.com RfD[edit]

Not sure if you have notifications disabled. But as mentioned at the RfD, I think you may have misunderstood the site's history. --Paul_012 (talk) 01:27, 17 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, I absolutely had. I've changed my !vote to reflect this, and I have added a reference to atimes.com to the article. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 15:59, 18 March 2024 (UTC).[reply]

Cosmetic edits[edit]

This looks like a cosmetic change to me, and I can't see any benefit to changing March 2023 to March 2024. This is exactly what your editing restriction prohibits you from doing. Also can you respond to my question several threads higher regarding your talk page size? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 20:45, 17 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Updating these templates is regarded as a substantive edit. As to the talk page size I can make a temporary adjustment, if it's causing you difficulties. I plan to re-jig the archiving system, to provide better searchability, but it's not going to be for a while. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 17:43, 18 March 2024 (UTC).[reply]
It is not a substantive edit, and it does controvene your editing restriction — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 19:08, 18 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bot_policy#Cosmetic_changes - third bullet point. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 23:47, 18 March 2024 (UTC).[reply]
It is not only not a substantive edit, it is misleading. That line was added a year ago in this edit; changing the date to now misrepresents how long it has appeared in the article. Mathglot (talk) 23:17, 18 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
That's not how these categories are supposed to work. See Category:Use dmy dates. All the best: Rich Farmbrough 23:54, 18 March 2024 (UTC).[reply]
