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.

Parameters in "cite news"[edit]

May I draw your attention to the fact that in "cite news" the correct parameter for the name of a newspaper or magazine is "newspaper" or "work", not "publisher". Please remember that names of newspapers and magazines go in italics. This happens automatically when the correct parameter is used. The "publisher" parameter is not needed in the case of mainstream media sources. -- Alarics (talk) 09:39, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, Alarics - I have to admit I'd been using that template for years, and never actually checked that I was using the parameters correctly. Well done for spotting my error, I'll try to remember this in future. Robofish (talk) 22:34, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! -- Alarics (talk) 07:28, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
