Election Results[edit]

I don't believe that factual lists are copyrightable, and given that the election results are by their very nature information in the public domain, I'd say you would be safe in reproducing the results from that source. Man vyi 17:49, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Cat:s[edit]

Your cat:ting has been overall helpful, thank you. But could you look at the conventions in supercat:s before proposing changes, please. Then, if you want to propose a change away from convention, at least argue away for it on the basis of what exists! Happy cat:ting! Man vyi 07:58, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Cats - VCs[edit]

I like the look of the new People from Jersey categories. You may like to consider how best to integrate the List of Channel Islands Victoria Cross recipients into Category:Victoria Cross recipients from Jersey. footie 17:36, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

All recipients have now been moved to the new category. RichardColgate 16:34, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Steve Pallett[edit]

Yes, that looks fair and accurate to me. Nice one.Daverotherham 20:45, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Jersey Democratic Alliance[edit]

Well done again. Your latest changes make the article far more useful to a lay reader wishing to find out about the party, which should be our prime objective as Wikipedians.Daverotherham 03:26, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

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)

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi RichardColgate,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
