What does N with a red exclamation point next to it mean on Wikipedia? --TheCockroach (talk) 10:29, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

N means a new page. A red exclamation mark means that it has not yet been "patrolled" - a first check to see that there are no obvious problems, see WP:New pages patrol. JohnCD (talk) 10:59, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Re: Sarah Moore[edit]

Hello, I have no idea ... but your title suggestion sounds sensible to me regardless. I wasn't a fan of the current title when I moved it there back in 2012. Feel free to make the page move, unless you'd like me to do it. Graham87 02:32, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Done; I'll adjust the links a little later. Good job cleaning up that article! For reference, instructions on moving pages are at Wikipedia:Moving a page. Graham87 02:44, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Heleen Mees[edit]

I haven't used it much myself, but if you review PC, there should be a form at the top of the diff asking you to accept or revert the changes. Undoing/rolling back works just as well IIRC. Reviews can be done by any established editor, and acceptance or reverts will be added to the page history as with any other edit. Bjelleklang - talk 07:35, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Sanduk Ruit, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page National Geographic (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Delete non-English account[edit]

I seem to have created a Wikipedia account in Dutch. I don't speak Dutch so I would like to shut down that account. How do I go about doing that? This is the account:

Thanks! --TheCockroach (talk) 12:11, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

This may have been set up automatically under Wikipedia:Unified login. I occasionally get welcome messages in strange languages. Accounts are not deleted, but don't worry about it - just ignore it. Making a link from there to your account here, as you have done, is sensible. JohnCD (talk) 13:48, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
I am prepared to do the speedy deletion requests for your Dutch user page and talk page, if you wish (if you put the following syntax on top of those pages: {{nuweg}}, the pages will be deleted), but keeping them as they are now will not cause any harm. By creating a SUL account you create an account in 77 projects at the same time. If you do not contribute, nobody will contact you, and if they do, you will not answer - without any consequence whatsoever. Theobald Tiger (talk) 13:56, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
I think I will just keep my accounts as they are. Thank you for offering your help! --TheCockroach (talk) 04:42, 10 May 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.
