Welcome to my talk page.

Please note that I prefer to have substantial discussions about individual articles on their own talk pages rather than here, so that all editors of those articles can see them and contribute.

Please also note that I prefer conversations to be in one place. I will reply to comments where they are left and, if necessary, transfer comments back to the original talk page where the conversation was initiated.

Recent move[edit]

I reverted your move of National Police Agency (Republic of China) per a request at WP:RM/TR contesting said move. If you wish to move the page, please start a request for one on the talk page. Thank you. JudgeRM (talk to me) 20:15, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

Category:Utah elections, 1895[edit]

I don't understand why you removed {{Category U.S. State elections by year}} from Category:Utah elections, 1895. Can you explain, please?—GoldRingChip 17:30, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

These templates doesn't work when they populate category redirects like Category:1895 in Utah and the redirect bot can't fix them so the template needs to be transcluded. Timrollpickering 17:34, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
Interesting problem. Perhaps the template can be fixed? Otherwise, the template on all 50 state categories will have to be transcluded.—GoldRingChip 18:02, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
I think I fixed the template {{category U.S. State elections by year}}—GoldRingChip 18:19, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
