Late reply to Commons Category links[edit]

I missed your reply about the Commons category links. I checked User:Dudemanfellabra/AddCommonsCatLinks.js and it expects a space "var sortkey=" "+refnum...." (space is there for a reason, prevents sorting logic from kicking in and messing up the refnum). That's exactly what Template:NRHP adds, but not the Wikidata infobox template. I added the missing space. Might take some time to propagate everywhere, but I think this fixes it. Can you check? If this fixes it, I'll also do the same change for the other types. Multichill (talk) 16:03, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

That seems to be working! It's definitely going to take a while before it propagates to all the articles - I had to null edit a Commons page just to test it - but I should be able to get back to adding the categories soon. (Of course, it's going to take a long time to get through that backlog.) Thank you so much for figuring it out! TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 20:20, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
I had a bot do null edits on the list so you should be able to just edit now.
@Mike Peel: I think Commons:Template:Wikidata Infobox/core needs the same fix for the other templates with tracker categories. Multichill (talk) 18:24, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! Hopefully the changes make it to the rest of the articles before I start getting into the ones that didn't make the 1000-article cutoff. TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 04:26, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

The Mountain State Beckons...honest[edit]

RUMOR has it, and fact is, I will be headed to Boone County WV soon. There are a few places that any wv lurkers on your page should see, because yours truly has a trick knee and it says, Boone County needs more pics.(That and a few demolition contracts on line later)....Any requests?Coal town guy (talk) 01:15, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

The NRHP-listed sites of Boone County are pretty well-covered, it looks like. It might be worth getting a picture of the Nellis company store if it's still around, but other than that I can't think of anything. Thanks for asking, and have fun on the trip!

I'm not sure what you mean by that, and having never interacted with that IP to my knowledge, I'm not sure why you reached out to me specifically.

GNIS template[edit]

Hi-the GNIS template has been used for several years at Wikipedia. In the last day or so the U.S. Board on Geographic Names revised their website and the GNIS template is no longer there. Any comments, information, suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you-RFD (talk) 08:41, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

I noticed that too, and right now it seems like the name search isn't on the website at all. I'm guessing they just haven't set it up after their website redesign, but if it's still gone after a few days someone may have to reach out to them and ask what's going on. (In the meantime, the download page still seems to be working, so the data's not completely inaccessible.) TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 13:04, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

ArbCom 2019 special circular[edit]

Icon of a white exclamation mark within a black triangle
Administrators must secure their accounts

The Arbitration Committee may require a new RfA if your account is compromised.

View additional information

This message was sent to all administrators following a recent motion. Thank you for your attention. For the Arbitration Committee, Cameron11598 02:45, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)[edit]

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

I usually use factfinder.census.gov to get full census data. (Though I just went there, and it looks like the Census Bureau is moving its data to data.census.gov, which I haven't gotten the chance to use yet.) TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 15:27, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
