A barnstar for you!
|The Barnstar of Diligence|
Although its a bit late, I was pleasantly surprised to receive your comments regarding Stanford Link Bot. I am constantly trying to improve it based on your suggestions and more are welcome. Given your experience, I would like to work with you in making Wikipedia better. Ashwinpp (talk) 17:40, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi Josh Parris. I am trying to cleanup User:AnomieBOT/Nobots Hall of Shame. Am I right to believe that I should remove all tags that are about WildBot? They are most probably outdated by now. -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:07, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
I checked links listed as broken in Talk:Outline of the United Statesand they are all ok. Is it ok to delete this long list or you will do it yourself? There are some other links Outline of the United States that need fixing but not the once listed on Talk page. For example: International Politics of the United States. Please advice...

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.

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Loosing feeling. Since you had some involvement with the Loosing feeling redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Little Professor (talk) 01:46, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Fair Use in Australia campaign update
- I'm writing you this followup message, as you took the time to vote in support of a Wikipedia banner campaign for the introduction of Fair Use in Australia.
- After much planning and coordination with the WMF, Australian Digital Alliance, and Electronic Frontiers Australia, as of Monday the banner-campaign is active on English Wikipedia to a portion of logged-out readers in Australia (technical details). The banners direct people to this page on Meta: FairCopyrightOz. That page, alongside lots of information, further directs people towards the campaign website faircopyright.org.au where Australians are invited to write to their local MP to express support of Fair Use. If you are interested in supporting this campaign, please, send a letter yourself using the template letter provided at that link.
- Furthermore, and with the support of the ADA & EFA, we have received fantastic media coverage - with article "Fair Use: Wikipedia targets Australians in bid to change the law" appearing on page 2 of the Sydney Morning Herald and page 10 of the Melbourne Age on Monday's edition. It was for a time the 3rd most read article the Fairfax website, and Fair Use was "trending" on Twitter in Australia. We are running the account @FairCopyrightOz on twitter, and we are tracking other press-mentions on the talkpage on Meta.
- Today, day 2, we published a detailed post about the campaign on the Wikimedia Blog, ran an "Ask Me Anything" Q&A session on the Australia page in Reddit, and [by happy coincidence of timing] the article History of fair use proposals in Australia appeared on the en.wp mainpage as a Did You Know. [The creation of that "history of..." article was a specific request arising from in the community consultation in which you voted].
- And, most importantly, in a little more than a day nearly 800 letters to MPs have been sent encouraging them to support the Productivity Commission's recommendation to adopt Fair Use in Australia. I urge you - please add your own message.
