Fancy polling?[edit]

Hi RingtailedFox, I came across your account in the list of admin hopefuls - could I persuade you into creating a poll at the optional RfA candidate poll? I think you're at the point where a 2016 nomination is pretty likely -- samtar whisper 13:54, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:WEDU.JPG[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:WEDU.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Proposed deletion of VEF315[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article VEF315 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Ultra-low-power radio stations in the "exempt from CRTC licensing" class are not entitled to an automatic presumption of notability per WP:NMEDIA. These get articles only if they can be sourced over WP:GNG, which this can't.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles 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 article 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.

List of broadcast frequencies-S.W.[edit]

Thanks for starting that list. I'm trying to figure out how to separate shortwave broadcasting out of the "AM" section and into its own section at the same level as AM & FM. What I envision is further separating the shortwave section by band (120m, 90m, 75m,...13m, 11m) but the one time I tried to do it, I found in the preview that I would be screwing up the page. Any idea how I can do about doing this? Thanks!Stereorock (talk) 18:18, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

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 RingtailedFox,

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)

Hi there. Regarding this edit, I'm not sure of the boundaries of "northeastern Ontario", but Sudbury may be included in it, and it has a larger population than Timmins and North Bay. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 18:54, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
