Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

I improved an article that you had restored to my userspace[edit]

Hey, I don't know if you remember this long conversation about restoring Swathanthra Malayalam Computing. It was recently restored to the article space by User:Anoopjohn. Anyhow, I added a few references including this excellent coverage in an English newspaper talking directly about SMC. Could you please go through the page and let me know if you think it doesn't still deserve the article space?

Also, why are you so inactive on the wiki now? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Asdofindia (talkcontribs) 19:50, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Coming... 15:14, 5 September 2016 (UTC) >> It's looking a lot better reference and notability-wise. With a bit more work I think this could easily become a very informative article. Good work!

Pitchup.com[edit]

Pitchup.com has not won any awards. The links is to an article labeled "Awards" where the website is merely mentioned with others. Cotton2 (talk) 12:37, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

According to their page, they have - it would have been nice to see some evidence from third party sites though to back it up. At the moment, I would say that the article is barely showing notability. However, as there is a tiny amount of evidence, it isn't a candidate for speedy deletion. Feel free to propose deletion or AFD it, or even improve it. Stephen! Coming... 13:07, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Sjb72. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Sjb72.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Creating Godha (film)[edit]

Godha is a 2016 upcoming Malayalam film. It has almost finished shooting and has many references for the same. I would like to create its page, but the title has been blocked by repeated earlier deletions and requires an administrator to open it. The deletion log says that you deleted it, so if you could undo that, it would be very helpful.The page - Godha_(film). PierceBrosnan007 (talk) 09:06, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Certainly. But first, could you please provide me with the references so that I could check them out? Alternatively (if you wish), you could always create a draft or userfied article, and I can move it across when it is ready. Stephen! Coming... 10:15, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Here are some

I will find more are as I start writing. PierceBrosnan007 (talk) 10:40, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Sources look ok: they are from notable third party sites, and don't appear to be press releases. I've unlocked the page so you can get writing. Just a reminder - the page was originally deleted and protected because of copyright issues (it was a recreation of someone else's work) and it appeared to be promotional in form; if you can avoid falling into the same trap, then I think the article will be just fine.
