Disney Streaming Services/BAMTechEdit

Amakuru: "rv undiscussed changes to lede and infobox. This article is about BAMTech, an entity which still operates - https://www.bamtechmedia.com/. Material about Disney Streaming Services seems quite speculative at the moment, but probably belongs in its own article or with Disney+"

It was undiscussed because it was sourced, which was found during a discussion at Talk:Disney+#Disney Streaming Services and other naming issues. Please actually read the changes to the article that sources this information. "...reports to Michael Paull, president of Disney Streaming Services (formerly referred to as BAMTech Media)." (And confirmed by his LinkedIn page.) Since the Disney Streaming Services was previously (logically) attached to the Disney+ article, having been under that name for a short period such to become a redirect, I had to request a G6. Technical deletions: "Deleting redirects or other pages blocking page moves." Which was granted by administrator @Anthony Appleyard:. Only for you to wheeled/revert his resulting move. Spshu (talk) 14:14, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Again, actual read posts on your talk page like this one. Spshu (talk) 16:29, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
@Spshu: yes, I read the above comment but I didn't really think there was anything to say about it. I have made my comments at the move request. And I still haven't seen any evidence against the fact that Bamtech is still operating and there's no real evidence that it has been renamed to "Disney Streaming Services". If such a concept exists at all, it is a parent to both Bamtech and Disney+, and it is also highly speculative as well - it won't launch till next year at the earliest.  — Amakuru (talk) 16:38, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes, because you say these sources do not exist!!!!! And I have FOUR TIMES pointed out that there are sources. To say that "I still haven't seen any evidence against the fact that Bamtech is still operating and there's no real evidence that it has been renamed to 'Disney Streaming Services'." is either an inability to read and comprehend or you are just intentionally playing IDIDNOTHEARTHAT. What in the world do you think that "...Disney Streaming Services (formerly referred to as BAMTech Media)" (quoted above) then means? Currently BAMTech article reads as it is the parent of Disney+ and ESPN+. Employees directly in charge of Disney+ and ESPN+ were original appointed as answering to BAMTech president.

Involved actions on Jaggi VasudevEdit

Hi Amkaru, I appreciate your contributions on Jaggi Vasudev, Since you have already participated in the talk page discussion and RM discussions. May I suggest you not to take actions in your administrative capacity on pages and incidents related to this subject per WP:INVOLVED--DBigXray 13:13, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

@DBigXray: I am not involved in the edit conflict to which you allude, I have only participated in Jaggi Vasudev in relation to the rename discussion, which is unrelated to the dispute you had with Raymond3023 and Cpt.a.haddock. I was, however, disappointed to see an experienced editor such as yourself edit warring on the article, and if you had used the talk page to resolve the issue, rather than repeatedly reinstating the contentious material, I wouldn't have had to protect the article. Thanks.  — Amakuru (talk) 13:20, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Amakuru, as I said in the beginning above, that I appreciate your comments and joining the discussion on the talk page. Although you did not participate in the said reverts, but by participating in the talk page discussion and participating in the !vote on a particular side you are clearly under the definitions of WP:INVOLVED as far as this page Jaggi Vasudev is concerned. If you feel admin actions are needed there, you should request Admin boards RFP etc for the sake of neutrality. Being an admin, you clearly should know about it better.
  • Now regarding my edits and your accusation of edit warring, please note I had made several edits (total 15) first time that counted as a "Bold edits" and not a revert. Raymond as he stated in his edit summary had concern with the allegations about his wife and yet he reverted all 13 edits. The said content on wife, was reliably sourced and mass revert of other 13 edits was clearly uncalled for in my opinion, so I made my first revert. And I immediately started a talk page discussion.
  • Instead of joining the talk page discussion, Raymond made a second blanket revert That only referred to the allegation. It was clearly a misleading edit summary for the type of blanket edit that was done. Raymond then joined the talk page and said that he opposed content related to his wife [1] nothing was said by Raymond about the other 13 edits that he mass reverted. So I removed from my edit, the content related to his wife, that was objected by him and restored my other edits [2], this revert by me clearly wasn't the same as my first revert and yet I was blanket reverted by Raymond for a second time again again without proper edit summary. This was clearly disruptive reverts from Raymond with misleading edit summary, but nevertheless I decided not to make any further edits on any of those contents.
  • So clearly I only made 1 revert (since the second revert did not include the content he questioned in his edit summary and talk page) and the reasons for them I clearly mentioned above.
  • I am not sure if you were already aware of these points I said above, but I felt I should clarify since it was questioned. --DBigXray 14:18, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/November 20, 2018‎ Edit

Thanks, agreed. And FWIW, the FAC nom has put this one up at FAR ... he says he doesn't have the time to update it, but the TFA coords haven't actioned this yet, they're hoping someone will step in. If you're interested in the article, feel free to beat it into shape. - Dank (push to talk) 01:13, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Dank yes, I did notice that it became featured ten years ago, and that she has moved from eight to eighteen in that time and loads has changed making the article likely to have deteriorated in that time. (The teen singer thing being one example). I didn't delve too deeply though as it was late last night and presumably you guys had looked at all that! Cheers  — Amakuru (talk) 07:26, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
Oh, and I think it might have been better to just swap this one out if that were possible,especially given there was nobody actively volunteering to action the FAr. And even then, it's usually far more than just a couple of days work to beat an article into shape. Too late now, but it's not ideal for us to be featuring alleged FA content on the main page if it's actually known to be below par. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 09:06, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
My mistake ... I was doing the December blurbs and I forgot that this one was coming up so fast, I thought we had some time to work on it still. (I mean ... my mistake to ask for help. I don't make the scheduling calls, I just do the blurbs.) Thanks for the edit. - Dank (push to talk) 12:58, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
@Dank: sure, and I wasn't blaming you in any way, I was just making a general observation. If I'd spotted that it was FAR last night, with serious doubts expressed about the quality, then I might have swapped it out myself, at risk of possibly causing some major incident with the schedulers. Some things seem pretty basic though, we shouldn't be showcasing subpar material on the main page. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 13:12, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Norwegian First Division?Edit

The league is not called Norwegian First Division. It is called 1. divisjon. There is no reason to Anglicize the name, as you can see with other leagues, such as Allsvenskan, Eliteserien and Superettan. If 1. divisjon is to be called Norwegian First Division, then shouldn't leagues like the Major League Soccer change name to "American Premier League", EFL Championship change name to "English First Division" and the Bundesliga change name to "German Premier League"? As you can see, these changes are pointless, inaccurate and unnecessary. So I see no reason why 1. divisjon should be called "Norwegian First Division", and it would be nice if you could revert these changes.

  Guideline and policy news

  • Following a request for comment, the Mediation Committee is now closed and will no longer be accepting case requests.
  • A request for comment is in progress to determine whether members of the Bot Approvals Group should satisfy activity requirements in order to remain in that role.
  • A request for comment is in progress regarding whether to change the administrator inactivity policy, such that administrators "who have made no logged administrative actions for at least 12 months may be desysopped". Currently, the policy states that administrators "who have made neither edits nor administrative actions for at least 12 months may be desysopped".
  • A proposal has been made to temporarily restrict editing of the Main Page to interface administrators in order to mitigate the impact of compromised accounts.

  Technical news

  Arbitration

  Miscellaneous

  • In late November, an attacker compromised multiple accounts, including at least four administrator accounts, and used them to vandalize Wikipedia. If you have ever used your current password on any other website, you should change it immediately. Sharing the same password across multiple websites makes your account vulnerable, especially if your password was used on a website that suffered a data breach. As these incidents have shown, these concerns are not pure fantasies.
  • Wikipedia policy requires administrators to have strong passwords. To further reinforce security, administrators should also consider enabling two-factor authentication. A committed identity can be used to verify that you are the true account owner in the event that your account is compromised and/or you are unable to log in.

ArbComEdit

You are mentioned in a recently filed request for arbitration. Please review the request at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case#Arbitrator_BU_Rob13_at_WP:ARCA and, if you wish to do so, enter your statement and any other material you wish to submit to the Arbitration Committee. As threaded discussion is not permitted on most arbitration pages, please ensure that you make all comments in your own section only. Additionally, the guide to arbitration and the Arbitration Committee's procedures may be of use. Black Kite (talk) 16:15, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

ScholarEdit

When you moved Scholar (disambiguation) to Scholar, you may have overlooked WP:FIXDABLINKS. Your move generated 1,141 WP:DABLINK errors. That is very nearly one-quarter of the current DABLINK errors, see WP:TDD. See Disambig fix list for Scholar for details.

I once made a move which broke over 250 links. I knew what needed doing. It took me something like 6 hours to sort them all out. Narky Blert (talk) 09:42, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

@Narky Blert: thanks for the message and it's a good point. Most likely most of those links were incorrectly targeted though, because it's dubious in my mind whether the term scholar, which refers to a class of person, should really redirect to scholarly method... hence why I made the bold move. Anyway, BD2412 has now converted the page into a new article on scholars so your concern is hopefully now resolved, and those links will land readers at a better page as a result. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 17:27, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
I wouldn't be in the least surprised if a lot of the links in were bad. They often are on those redirects with vast numbers of links. bd2412 has written a useful stub article (that's his second this week, another move had broken almost 2,500 links). Yrs, Narky Blert (talk) 17:44, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Pulling hooksEdit

Hi Amakuru. Regarding the commentary at ERRORS2 today, if you want to pull hooks that's fine by me, but please be sure to replace them with suitable hooks from prep or we end up with a short set. Cheers, Gatoclass (talk) 16:47, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

@Gatoclass: indeed, thanks for the message - I think always do that, for example at [3]. I haven't done anything with Jack Brooksbank yet but perhaps I will later if nobody comes up with a better idea. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 17:24, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Civilization (board game) for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Civilization (board game) is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Civilization (board game) until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. -- Tavix (talk) 00:07, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Amakuru, please can you reopen this AfD? The content is changing but currently doesn't match your closing statement, and I think we need further discussion to reach a consensus. @Tavix, Xezbeth, CapnZapp, and Bkonrad: pinging involved editors. Thanks, Certes (talk)
@Certes: OK, done. We'll Let the matter be hashed out then. I do consider it a bit of a waste of time though, I don't see any way the discussion will be closed any other way. Thanks.  — Amakuru (talk) 11:39, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. I also think that WP:INCDAB shows clearly what we should do here, but other editors disagree and the page has changed again today. The discussion is not a waste of time if it avoids an edit war. Certes (talk) 11:44, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough. Thanks.  — Amakuru (talk) 11:54, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Arbcom maceEdit

I don't want to clutter TRMs talk page, but that was funny. Obviously we need some kind of backstop where TRM can only be banned from DYK when there are no more errors. --LaserLegs (talk) 01:32, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

@LaserLegs: the trouble with the backstop, though, is how do we get out of it? There seems to be no mechanism for TRM to unilaterally end his agreement with ArbCom, so it won't wash with the Hard Ramblingeers    — Amakuru (talk) 09:08, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Year politics movesEdit

Hey, I noticed that you had done the move from United States presidential election, 2016 to 2016 United States presidential election. Is there a way to ensure that the editnotice templates are also moved, or does that have to be done manually? (Looking at Template:Editnotices/Page/2016 United States presidential election which I just now moved on my own) ~Awilley (talk) 13:14, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Explain?Edit

[4]

"Notability" wasn't the issue. The problem is bad one-sentence stubs being left in the mainspace by an editor who has been told multiple times to stop. You may disagree with those multiple prior instances, but you can't tell me you're willing to stand up for this "article" the way you left it in the mainspace.

Administrators' newsletter – January 2019Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (December 2018).

  Guideline and policy news

  1. G14 (new): Disambiguation pages that disambiguate only zero or one existing pages are now covered under the new G14 criterion (discussion). This is {{db-disambig}}; the text is unchanged and candidates may be found in Category:Candidates for speedy deletion as unnecessary disambiguation pages.
  2. R4 (new): Redirects in the file namespace (and no file links) that have the same name as a file or redirect at Commons are now covered under the new R4 criterion (discussion). This is {{db-redircom}}; the text is unchanged.
  3. G13 (expanded): Userspace drafts containing only the default Article Wizard text are now covered under G13 along with other drafts (discussion). Such blank drafts are now eligible after six months rather than one year, and taggers continue to use {{db-blankdraft}}.

  Technical news

  • Starting on December 13, the Wikimedia Foundation security team implemented new password policy and requirements. Privileged accounts (administrators, bureaucrats, checkusers, oversighters, interface administrators, bots, edit filter managers/helpers, template editors, et al.) must have a password at least 10 characters in length. All accounts must have a password:
  1. At least 8 characters in length
  2. Not in the 100,000 most popular passwords (defined by the Password Blacklist library)
  3. Different from their username
User accounts not meeting these requirements will be prompted to update their password accordingly. More information is available on MediaWiki.org.
  • Blocked administrators may now block the administrator that blocked them. This was done to mitigate the possibility that a compromised administrator account would block all other active administrators, complementing the removal of the ability to unblock oneself outside of self-imposed blocks. A request for comment is currently in progress to determine whether the blocking policy should be updated regarding this change.
  • {{Copyvio-revdel}} now has a link to open the history with the RevDel checkboxes already filled in.

  Arbitration

  Miscellaneous

  • Accounts continue to be compromised on a regular basis. Evidence shows this is entirely due to the accounts having the same password that was used on another website that suffered a data breach. If you have ever used your current password on any other website, you should change it immediately.
  • Around 22% of admins have enabled two-factor authentication, up from 20% in June 2018. If you haven't already enabled it, please consider doing so. Regardless of whether you use 2FA, please practice appropriate account security by ensuring your password is secure and unique to Wikimedia.

MRV revertEdit

@Paine Ellsworth: yes, if there haven't been enough voices yet or there's a realistic prospect of new information coming to light. That isn't the case here, it's just stuck in a backlog waiting for closure. Postponing that by seven days won't change anything. We can continue discussing at the talk page anyway.

Yes, yet another sourceEdit

Hi Amakuru. I really hate to do this to you, but today I discovered that Ugandan journalist Justus Muhanguzi Kampe has published a memoir entitled "Eyes of a Journalist", the second half of which covers his experiences reporting on the Rwandan Civil War. A memoir isn't considered as strong as peer-reviewed secondary material, but it might have something interesting (apparently he talks a fair amount about the RPF in it). I could see if I could obtain a copy through my university library? -Indy beetle (talk) 22:17, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

@Indy beetle: Well if you can get a copy it would be interesting to see what's inside. It doesn't look like the British Library in London has that one. Looking at the synopsis it seems he interviewed some of the RPF personnel although not the top brass like Kagame or Rwigyema. So probably unlikely it'll have major new revelations but you never know...  — Amakuru (talk) 23:17, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Ok, I've submitted a request through my library loan system. It may take a week or two, but based off of the worldcat page I'm confident they'll be able to secure a copy for me. -Indy beetle (talk) 07:41, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@Amakuru: Just got the book today. It appears it might have some useful info. It seems true that he did not get those top level interviews, but he did interview other high ranking RPF officers. He also discusses some the implications of the war on Uganda, such as intense damage in border regions from skirmishes. Apparently Kagame's government paid reparations for this in 2015. -Indy beetle (talk) 19:40, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
He also takes a different view on the attack on Ruhengeri, that it might've been organised by Alexis Kanyarengwe, because he had just recently joined the RPF and some of his former anti-Habyarimana colleagues were locked up in the prison. -Indy beetle (talk) 19:46, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Removal of image from Dali articleEdit

I've reverted your removal of the lady and the unicorn image, as it is clearly relevant to the text that surrounds it. ♠PMC(talk) 22:11, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

@Premeditated Chaos: what do you mean? There is no mention of the image in the text at all, and as far as I can tell there is no evidence that the person in the picture is Dali at all. Certainly there is no citation to that effect. Please could you explain? Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 22:16, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
The entire first paragraph in that section is entirely about the comparison of Dali to the figure of the lady who tames the unicorn. At no point does the text or the caption claim that the figure in the image is Dali herself. The inclusion of the image illustrates the concept of the lady who tames the unicorn. ♠PMC(talk) 22:18, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
@Premeditated Chaos: Yes I see that now, although the image has been pushed down quite considerably by other images in my browser, so it isn't at all obvious which paragraph it is supposed to connect to. I do think it's quite confusing to include an image that no source at all has ever connected to this subject. But anyway, it's your decision I guess... Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 22:32, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
There are lots of images like that in the article, which are not Dali but depict other figures or ideas being discussed; I don't understand why your objection is to this one specifically. ♠PMC(talk) 22:37, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Well, that was just the one I happened to spot because I was looking at it in the context of scheduling a picture of the day for the main page and I wondered what it had to do with Dali. To be honest it looks like the article has a few too many images at the moment, but anyway that's your decision as one of the principal authors. So I'll withdraw my objection and we can move on    — Amakuru (talk) 22:44, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Very poor form to revert a change initiated at ERRORS without going there to justify it. The source says nothing explicit to link that particular cartel with the devotion. Kevin McE (talk) 16:47, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Promoting DYK Preps to QueueEdit

Amakuru, thanks for being active in promoting DYK Preps to Queue; it's great to have more admins doing this work.

I wanted to be sure that you were aware of a final step in the process: updating the NextPrep page so it reflects the next prep that will be promoted to a queue. There's an "update count" link (to Template:Did you know/Queue/NextPrep) at the top of the Template:Did you know/Queue#Prep areas section; when you don't do the update, the just-promoted preps, now empty, appear at the top of list of six preps rather than at the bottom. I've just updated it myself so that Prep 5 shows as the next prep after your promotions of preps 3 and 4 to their respective queues. Thanks again for promoting them!

@BlueMoonset: Oh great, thanks for the heads up and sorry for not doing it this time. I'll bear that in mind in future. Cheers  — Amakuru (talk) 10:42, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

POTDEdit

With regards to this edit here is the errors report. As per the regular instructions I had removed it once it had been actioned. The report made sense to me in that it talks about a collection before discussing the actual collection. Up to you if you want to action the report again. Woody (talk) 14:27, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

@Woody: ah OK, usually error reports are left up for a few hours at least because not everyone agrees with a particular change, and sometimes consensus is against it. In this case it's usual with paintings to say the location at the end, but I see the point about the collection so guess its better this way. I should have checked the history before I reverted you. I've reinstated the change. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 15:04, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
No worries. I've always been one to remove them once complete (though I've been away from the page for a significant period). The header still has those instructions hence I didn't think it would be an issue. Woody (talk) 15:07, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
