Welcome to my talk page. Here you can leave any messages you want for me.

To make it easier for me, please have a talk link in your signature.

Also, while I accept or even welcome criticism (as you can see, there's some on the page and/or its archives), I will delete any personal attacks. Please don't bother.

Thank you for taking part in the Community Health learning campaign![edit]

Community Health learning campaign - Analysis Report of Community Responses
Thank you!

apologies for writing in English, if this is not your first language.
I want to thank you once more for engaging in conversation on the Community Health learning campaign. It took us a while, but we can finally announce the winner of the prize, as well as share the outcomes of this conversation.

You might also be interested in taking part in the 2015 Harassment consultation. This is the first of several planned consultations on this topic, intended to provide a place to discuss ideas, concerns, proposals and possible solutions regarding Wikimedia communities’ harassment-related challenges.

This conversation would not have been the same without you. If you have more ideas, or follow up comments on the findings of the campaign, don't hesitate to leave me a message my talk page.

Have a great day,

Deleting information about my organization[edit]

Hi, I accidentally added some information today about my organization (Mellanox Technologies) which could be sensitive and is still there despite my revert. I was told that you could help by deleting the revision. Thanks! Jumbos (talk) 17:10, 4 February 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jumbos (talkcontribs) 17:08, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

@Jumbos: Hi, I may be able to help. Are you referring to this revision?
Ynhockey (Talk) 17:14, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi, no to this one Jumbos (talk) 17:19, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

@Jumbos: OK I assume you meant the other one too, because it has the same link, so I just deleted them all. Please re-add the non-personal information you added! Cheers, Ynhockey (Talk) 17:29, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Thank you! Jumbos (talk) 17:30, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Orly Levy[edit]

Hey Yan. Any idea what Orly Levy's official status is – i.e. whether she is still officially a Yisrael Beiteinu MK despite having said she's resigned from the party. My understanding is that she only becomes an official independent if she gets permission from the House Committee to form a separate parliamentary faction (and that doesn't appear to have happened). Cheers, Number 57 21:11, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

It does list single-member breakaways (see Haim Amsalem listed in the 18th Knesset – "3.12.12 MK Chaim Amsellem left Shas and began serving as a Single MK parliamentary group."). But as you say, it may just not have been updated for a while. Cheers, Number 57 14:39, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Fixing template[edit]

Hi Yan. Just wondered what you meant by this edit. {{Infobox Israel village}} doesn't exist – it's a redirect to {{Infobox Kibbutz}}. Cheers, Number 57 13:58, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Actually, I think moving it should be fine (after all, the redirects work at the moment). Just need to make sure there are no double redirects. Also, if you use AWB, you could do a bulk set of changes in a relatively short period of time (if not, I can have a go). Number 57 14:41, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
I've moved it, and still appears to be working fine on all the articles where it's still called Infobox Kibbutz, so no need for a rapid change. I'll fix any I see when adding {{Israel populations}}. As an aside, do you know what's happened to the 2015 populations from the CBS? I haven't seen a release yet. Cheers, Number 57 19:31, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Just an FYI, you can use the population template in text too, which will mean that the infobox and article text always have the same figure. See the intro to Sde Boker as an example. Cheers, Number 57 19:19, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Map uploads[edit]

Hey. I was wondering whether you would mind if I uploaded new versions of the likes of File:Israel outline haifa.png over the top of your originals on Commons. I've worked out how to change the map of Israel in the left-hand section to match this (the sea is still the same colour as in your original, but the Palestinian territories/Golan Heights are coloured like the currently-used maps, plus the district borders are shown). If this can be sorted, it means we can restore all the maps to the infoboxes rather than having the whole country map there on every single article.

If it's an issue, I can upload them with slightly different titles. Cheers, Number 57 22:38, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

I've uploaded the new version, and also restored it to {{Location map Israel haifa}}, which means it's now being used again on articles like Kiryat Yam. If you don't like it, I'm happy to revert! If you're ok with it, I'll do the rest. Number 57 11:35, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
I've got them all ready now to upload if that's ok. Cheers, Number 57 17:27, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
All done now. Unfortunately Gila has changed loads of the map sizes to 100 or 150px, which now means they are now far too small, so plenty will have to be fixed... Number 57 19:49, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
I've been through all the places in the villages and community settlement categories and fixed the size. Number 57 20:36, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Ynhockey. 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)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:03, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
