The Notability of the Sukey Project[edit]

Hi Robofish! I'm an ex member of the Sukey project, and newbie to Wikipedia. I noticed that there can been some disagreement over the notability of the project. Whilst not widely known, I would argue that Sukey had a small, but vital part to play in the history of student activism in the UK, and set a precedent for mapping and its role within activism in the UK, please see this link (section 5), for a little background on its notability.

I would be interested to know your reasons for adding the notability tag, and whether there is anything I can do to resolve this. (Gaffen (talk) 18:06, 27 March 2015 (UTC))

Thanks for your comment, Gaffen. I'm still not entirely convinced about the notability of the subject, but on taking another look at the article, there is slightly more media coverage than I first thought. I've given it the benefit of the doubt and removed the tag. Robofish (talk) 23:55, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Your common.css page[edit]

Hi; I notice that in User:Robofish/common.css you have the CSS rule

.ambox-Orphan{display: inherit !important;}

- please note that there is an error in this (almost certainly copied from an old version of Template:Orphan#Visibility) which causes incorrect display in some browsers.

To check this, visit this page and look at the second bullet (the one that precedes the text "This article is an orphan ..."). If this bullet is not in the same alignment as the other four, but displaced to the left, you can fix it by altering inherit to table in the CSS rule mentioned earlier. If that doesn't work either, alter it to block.

Template:Orphan#Visibility has been amended. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:34, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the notification, Redrose64. I've corrected it. Robofish (talk) 22:19, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Moving Burma to Myanmar - new 2015 poll[edit]

You participated in a Burma RM in the past so I'm informing you of another RM. I hope I didn't miss anyone. New move attempt of Burma>Myanmar Fyunck(click) (talk) 08:57, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

There is a move discussion in progress on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Burma (Myanmar) which affects the recently renamed page Myanmar. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. Sawol (talk) 16:25, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Aylan article[edit]

I have nominated the article for a mention at ITN. Wikipedia:In the news/Candidates.--BabbaQ (talk) 23:37, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Robofish, I am very concerned about the activities of someone on Wikipedia with regard to the Alan Kurdi story. Not hard for you to work out who. Just have a look at the contributions to the talk pages of the Alan Kurdi article and the Photographs article. To be honest, I am more than just concerned. In my opinion, something must be done and soon. The situation is getting way out of hand and I don't think I am exaggerating. Please would you message me about this. I'm afraid that I can't see the way to message you. Thank you. Boscaswell (talk) 20:36, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Thank you *very* much for your actions and your message on my talk page, Robofish. I have responded there. I think you will be interested. Fingers are crossed. Boscaswell (talk) 08:31, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
