behind the scenes

Thank you for improving articles for more prefessional looks, for dealing with deletions and SPIs, for fighting vandalism, for many functions behind the scene, for "If I was wrong about being wrong, someone can revert the revert!" and "glad to be back", - Dan, repeating ((22 October 2008), you are an awesome Wikipedian!

I should have looked at their user page. I don't know though why the original block wasn't replaced with a multiple accounts block. I was working on the basis of that and my lack of knowledge of the SPI. Thanks for catching this. Doug Weller talk 07:40, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

@Doug Weller: No worries! We're all here to look out for each other. No harm done. :-) --Deskana (talk) 08:48, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

ThatEdit

you wear the hat of Lead Product Manager, Editing Team at WMF, I assume that you are the correct person to inquire about possible updates to products that were delivered the team:-) How difficult will it be, from a technical perspective, to integrate Template:sfn (or something like that) into VE? It will be quite helpful as to extensively using different pages of a single source since currently, I have to recreate the citations every single time.Thanks!WBGconverse 11:51, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

@Winged Blades of Godric: As of a few days ago I'm not working at the Wikimedia Foundation any more [1] and my former position is vacant. That said, I do know some details here, which I'm happy to share. Phab:T53522 explains some of the history—Template:Sfn is a bit of a hack which is very difficult to support in a structured manner, so at present there are no plans to add support for the functionality. Alas, sometimes hard decisions about priorities have to be made. It's probably best that you stick to wikitext if you want to use that template, which is a bit sad because I'm really pleased you want to use the visual editor more! I hope that helps. --Deskana (talk) 13:27, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Tidying Up with Marie KondoEdit

 On 13 February 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that after the release of the Netflix show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, charity shops in Washington D.C. reported a 66% increase in donations? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

ArbCom 2019 special circularEdit

 
Administrators must secure their accounts

The Arbitration Committee may require a new RfA if your account is compromised.

View additional information

This message was sent to all administrators following a recent motion. Thank you for your attention. For the Arbitration Committee, Cameron11598 02:38, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)Edit

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:03, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Full details are on the Meta page at m:Meetup/Manchester/36.
