Luisenstädtischer Canal[edit]

Hi, the current title Luisenstädtischer Canal looks a bit strange to me. I would suggest either the German name "Luisenstädtischer Kanal", or the fully translated "Luisenstadt Canal". The later form seems to be used in English, see Google Books. Markussep Talk 13:02, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Good point, will do. I've copied your comment and more detail response to Talk:Luisenstadt Canal so the reasoning is available to subsequent editors. -- Starbois (talk) 13:26, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Probably the same goes for Gosener Canal and Nausdorfer Canal. Markussep Talk 13:22, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

New Page Patrol survey[edit]


New page patrol – Survey Invitation

Hello Starbois! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you  have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to  know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation  also appears on other accounts you  may  have, please complete the  survey  once only. 
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.

You are receiving this invitation because you  have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey. Global message delivery 13:24, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Bypassing redirects[edit]

Hi, there is generally no need to bypass redirects, as you did here and several other places. Please see WP:NOTBROKEN for why. --Redrose64 (talk) 12:45, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

First ever Reading Wiki Meetup[edit]

You are invited to the first ever Reading Wiki Meetup which will take place at Copa, 76-78 Kings Road, Reading, RG1 3BJ on Sunday 23 September 2012 from 1.00 pm.

I hope as many people as possible will be able to attend so that we can make this a regular event. If you have never been to one, this is an opportunity to meet other Wikipedians in an informal atmosphere for Wiki and non-Wiki related chat and for beer or food if you like. Experienced and new contributors are all welcome. This event is definitely not restricted just to discussion of Berkshire related topics. Bring your laptop if you like and use the free Wifi or just bring yourself. Even better, bring a friend! Click the link for full details. Looking forward to seeing you.

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.
