Lux Leaks suggested for "in the news"[edit]

Luxembourg Leaks[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. μηδείς (talk) 00:22, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Talk?[edit]

I am curious why, as an admin, it behooves you to edit war on an article at AdF and not to participate in the discussion at the Luxembourg Leaks talk page. I am also curious why you have been recruited above and find it proper to act as you have. μηδείς (talk) 01:45, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Recruited? I have not participated in the ITN discussion to which you say I was recruited above. Thue (talk) 02:05, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Take this as your 3RR warning. μηδείς (talk) 01:45, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

I have reverted twice. For good reason both times. Thue (talk) 02:05, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

DDR5 SDRAM[edit]

You deleted DDR5 SDRAM. Modules exist. I am currently studying them to get a better understanding of wavelet transform. Just FYI. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.197.6.134 (talk) 18:39, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Whatever does a general-purpose SDRAM standard have to do with wavelet transforms? Ate you sure you are not thinking about GDDR5, which is indeed something you would use for wevelet transforms on a GPU? Thue (talk) 01:06, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Windows Media Video (video compression format)[edit]

Hey, Thue. I noticed that recently, you copied part of Windows Media Video article and created Windows Media Video (video compression format), creating a misleading article fork that gives the impression that there is also something called "Windows Media Video" file format separate from Advanced Systems Format format. Unfortunately, not only I do not see a source for this assertion, Windows Media Video's body and Advanced Systems Format article also contends that no such thing exists.

Therefore, I performed what I hope is a BRD revert. (I believe the magnitude of the problem warranted this act.) But I am more than ready to discuss this issue and see your sources in the article talk page. Fleet Command (talk) 08:33, 7 December 2014 (UTC)


Merge discussion for Turla (malware)[edit]

An article that you have been involved in editing, Turla (malware), has been proposed for a merge with another article. If you are interested in the merge discussion, please participate by going here, and adding your comments on the discussion page. Thank you. MartinThoma (talk) 19:13, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

@MartinThoma: If they are two articles about the same thing, then just go ahead and merge them. Thue (talk) 19:30, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Hjælperen - Slaget på Reden[edit]

Hej Thue,

Jeg sidder og læser en Nelson biografi (Sugden) og faldt over en ikke særligt rosende omtale af Fregatten Hjælperen (Slaget på Reden). Jeg har rettet typen på skibet (til defensionsfregat) men har ikke skrevet noget om kaptajn eller besætning - endnu. Men kunne det ikke være interessant at tilføje navnene på de danskere, som Sugden nævner med navn? Flertallet rosende, Lillienschiold knapt så meget...

@Carsten Franck: Jo, det er da en skæg detalje at have med i en artikel, passer nok bedst ind i HDMS Hielperen. Thue (talk) 02:46, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Links to Wikia[edit]

Hi Thue, I reverted your addition of the link to the SC2 Wikia wiki on the article on LotV. Generally, external links to open wikis are discouraged by our external links policy (under #12). I understand your sentiment, and the SC2 wiki tends to be fairly stable, but precedent has it that it's an external link we don't use. All the best, Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 18:29, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Theories[edit]

Theories of this kind are even less acceptable on Wikipedia than rumors: we don't report speculation, particularly if they haven't been picked up in multiple sources. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a place to make guesses and post them in case they're true . You're experienced enough to know that this sort of thing should never be reported in Wikipedia's voice in any case. Please self-revert, or at least please use the talkpage to discuss this. Acroterion (talk) 13:39, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

@Acroterion: I am experienced enough that theories do have their place here. You are talking complete nonsense, and I strongly question your competence. Are you going to delete the our article about the Theory of Gravity next? Thue (talk) 19:13, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Axact[edit]

Hi Thue. Could you please remove the wikilinks for all of the Axact websites that do not already have Wikipedia articles? These are almost certainly non-notable. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 20:44, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Never mind, it was done by someone else. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 06:45, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Material design[edit]

I've chimed into the discussion and would appreciate it if you could contribute once more. I wholeheartedly agree with you and think it should be moved back.–Totie (talk) 03:21, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Edit war warning[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Heroin. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Jytdog (talk) 14:03, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Replaceable fair use File:2015 Russian Sukhoi Su-24 shootdown Turkey claim.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:2015 Russian Sukhoi Su-24 shootdown Turkey claim.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 17:09, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

AlphaGo versus Lee Sedol[edit]

Thank you for handling the move back to AlphaGo versus Lee Sedol. However, I don't think you moved the talk page? It seems odd as a move normally moves the talk page by default.

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

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:The duel.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.

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. --B-bot (talk) 02:38, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Bandits (video game) moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Bandits (video game), does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. I didn't see any reviews listed in MobyGames so I'm not sure what secondary sources you're using to mainspace this article. czar 18:39, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Crystal Hammer moved to draftspace[edit]

(How can a game "receive mostly middling reviews" when there is only a single review documented? Also note that MobyGames is unreliable for infobox details and that user-contributed Amiga databases aren't reliable sources either.) An article you recently created, Crystal Hammer, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption.

Speedy deletion nomination of Damco[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Damco, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Thue. 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 Thue.

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) 13:48, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

I got interested in security proofs of the four DRBGs in this standard, and I found security proofs of Hash_DRBG and HMAC_DRBG and a paper proving that there is an error in the assumptions that were used to design CTR_DRBG that causes its security level to be limited by the underlying block cipher's block size which the designers failed to consider.
