A barnstar for you![edit]

Administrator Barnstar Hires.png The Admin's Barnstar
Thanks for dealing with the clutter at MfD. I've been staying away from most of the contentious ones because I'm involved, so I appreciate your work taking care of that. ♠PMC(talk) 22:21, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Displaying personal email[edit]

Hi all, i have noticed that a certain user has given out their personal email on his/hers User Page, i wanted to ask you if this is allowed before i hand out a warning.... many thnaks - JJBullet (Talk) 10:40, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

@JJBullet: it is not against policy in general, but if it is a minor or being done in a spammy way it may be best to remove. I wouldn't "warn" them unless it is overly promotion, but for anyone you may want to suggest they remove it if you don't think they understand that it will be harvested. — xaosflux Talk 11:32, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

User:Edit filter[edit]

Hi. I just came across User:Edit filter. I saw that it was an administrator, but you removed that per Special:Permalink/876634428#Abusefilter_blocker_account. However, I wanted to let you know that the account is still flagged as an admin, likely due to it being "hard-coded" into the abuse filter extension - see Quarry:query/36217. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 19:21, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

@DannyS712: yes, one of the software jobs is readding it even when not needed phab:T212268 and its related tasks may fix it one day. — xaosflux Talk 19:49, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Quickdraw McGraw[edit]

You beat me to even finishing the thought 'I should probably request temporary sysop at BN...'. Fastest flags in the west! SQLQuery me! 03:19, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Question on bot policy[edit]

I'm considering renaming a bot of mine that used to hold the flag (I requested the removal). Do I have to request another BRFA or note something somewhere? --qedk (t c) 20:10, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

@QEDK: the "rename" part is not really relevant. To request a new bot flag (and more importantly to reactivate or start a new bot task) then yes, file a BRFA please. — xaosflux Talk 21:37, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
No worries, I'll file a new BRFA. --qedk (t c) 22:06, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Duggar family page[edit]

Just wondering why the Duggar family page no longer includes grandchildren? It was really helpful to know who is having babies when!

Read through the associated talk page, I think it is being discussed there. — xaosflux Talk 05:01, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Duggar family[edit]

Hoping to see the 19 kids and counting updated soon

I don't normally edit that page, try it's talk page. — xaosflux Talk 01:47, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
