You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 21:40, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Up in the Air (film)#Plot[edit]

I like your edits to Up in the Air (film)#Plot. They make the plot summary more readable. However, I question whether your edit would be considered minor. --Dan Dassow (talk) 19:56, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Hello, Schweiwikist. You have new messages at Courcelles's talk page.

This page is showing up the CSD category as being tagged for deletion on CSD grounds, however I can find no such indication that you've tagged the page as such. I think, based on the log report, that something that you've got linked in the page is causing it show up in the csd deletion category; you may want to look into this before someone else axe's the page. TomStar81 (Talk) 22:47, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome. For what its worth, the saving grace was the mandatory look at the log before deletion; after the page was restored in its entirety I figured that this was not actually up for deletion, which is why I left the message in the first place. I hope you get the issue worked out soon. TomStar81 (Talk) 08:00, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:52, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

United States Bill of Rights has been selected as the United States Wikipedians' Collaboration of the Month for June 2011[edit]

As one of the editors who has made improvements to the United States Bill of Rights article recently this notice has been left to inform you that it has been selected as the United States Wikipedians' Collaboration of the Month for June 2011. The goal this month is to get this article to Good Article standards or better by July 4th, 2011. You can also vote for next months article of the Month or submit a candidate for article of the month here. --Kumioko (talk) 02:24, 4 June 2011 (UTC)


I hope you don't mind, but I fixed this page, and simplified it as well. Basically, it's better to use the mediawiki {{#time:}} parser function (you can read about the syntax on the extension help page) to do actual date arithematic. The problem is that when you reach the end of the year, you can't just say CURRENTYEAR/(DOY + x), since x days ahead won't be the current year anymore. The cool thing about the parserfunctions is that they will even do the "weekday" prefix for you. You may see me fixing your other subtemplates as well. Again, I hope you don't mind. Best regards, (talk) 17:15, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:EYegsTC.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:EYegsTC.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 06:41, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

current events[edit]

I have been cleaning up some of the rarely used templates and noticed that several could be eliminated if we use "#time" in the current events portal pages, like this. do you see any problem with this? thank you. Frietjes (talk) 16:42, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

great. I may also tweak the "self-destruct" code too. currently, it looks like it only shows the "db-g7" for a single day. if no admin kills it, it will never get deleted? see Portal:Current events/Calendar/2012/192 for example. thank you again. Frietjes (talk) 21:52, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
I believe {{#time:F Y|{{#time:F Y}} +1 month}} }} always works, while the simple {{#time:F Y|+1 month}} does not. I posted a note at WP:VPT and created a fairly complete demonstration of input dates here. let me know if there are any corner cases that you think I am missing.

Hi Schweiwikist, five solid years of creating portal current event calendar pages without someone helping to make it into an automated process almost certainly deserves this. EdwardLane (talk) 05:35, 3 February 2014 (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.
