Hi JakobEdit

Welcome back Jakob Coles. I noticed this new account while I was scrolling through GA nomination Talk:Meadow Brook (Lackawanna River). If you don't want the admin tools, maybe you should notify WP:BN. It's not like you're hiding; you have your own reasons for the new account name. But you really should formally get the old account taken care of. Wikipedia is treating it as an active account and I think there is the possibility of confusion later down the line. Anyway, good luck. — Maile (talk) 00:03, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

@Maile66: Thanks for the welcome. Seeing as I don't have the password anymore, what do you recommend be done with the old account. (I may have mentioned, but I'm no longer particularly interested in adminship.) Jakob (talk) 02:41, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
I think the recommended procedure is to post at WP:BN and let them deal with the de-admin under the old account names. One thing that comes to mind is some hacker getting the tools and committing hanky-panky under your old name. Best wishes for your path forward. May you have nothing but blue skies ahead. — Maile (talk) 11:20, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

A page you started (Kasson Brook) has been reviewed!Edit

Thanks for creating Kasson Brook, Jakob Coles!

Wikipedia editor Boleyn just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Thanks for creating this. You've created 12 good articles, and once they're created, they go through review at New Page Patrol. Yours are too good to add to the large backlog there. Once you've created 25 articles, can you please go to WP:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled and ask for your articles to be autopatrolled? This will cut the backlog and mean your articles go straight onto Google instead of waiting up to 90 days.

To reply, leave a comment on Boleyn's talk page.

Learn more about page curation.

QuestionEdit

Hi Jakob. I was following the recent thread at WP:BN with interest, and a thought struck me. As Jakec, did you ever use Special:EmailUser/Oversight to send an email to the oversight team (User:Oversight)? (If you've ever requested oversight before, this is probably how you did it.) If so, we may be able to link your two accounts definitively if you still have access to the email address you used as Jakec. Mz7 (talk) 05:59, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

@Mz7: I have in fact emailed the oversight team a few times. Jakob (talk) 01:26, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
@Jakob Coles: Go through your email's archive and see if you can find any responses from the oversight team. In the subject bar of the email there should be a 16-digit OTRS ticket number in brackets, e.g. [Ticket#1234567890123456]. Send an email with the same email address to the functionaries mailing list (functionaries-en lists.wikimedia.org) mentioning this ticket number and ask for a member of the oversight team to compare the email address listed in the OTRS ticket to the email you are currently using. If they match, they should be able to make an official statement over at WP:BN verifying that your two accounts are linked. The reason this works is because when you used Special:EmailUser/Oversight, the email was sent by the MediaWiki software under your Jakec Wikipedia account, not by your email client. As a result, the oversighters should be able to check the email headers and verify that the Jakec account used the same email address as you are now. Mz7 (talk) 06:24, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

DYK for Scouten BrookEdit

 On 21 July 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Scouten Brook, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Scouten Brook), 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.

Suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity (for User:Jakec)Edit

  Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts. — xaosflux Talk 00:45, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Wow, it's been that long, huh? Time flies, I guess. I've had a lot of fun writing articles here, but I don't think I'll be editing much anymore—I have a lot less free time now than I did in high school, and have by and large moved on to other things. Thanks anyway, and good luck with the project! Jakob (talk) 01:00, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
Best wishes, should you wish to resume mopping please log in as User:Jakec and drop a note at WP:BN, alternatively have your other account request that the access be moved to this one if you will be using it (also at WP:BN). This will be available for just under 2 years, after which time you would need to request community approval at WP:RFA. — xaosflux Talk 02:16, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Please participate to the talk pages consultationEdit

Hello

Our team at the Wikimedia Foundation is working on a project to improve the ease-of-use and productivity of wiki talk pages. As a Teahouse host, I can imagine you’ve run into challenges explaining talk pages to first-time participants.

We want all contributors to be able to talk to each other on the wikis – to ask questions, to resolve differences, to organize projects and to make decisions. Communication is essential for the depth and quality of our content, and the health of our communities. We're currently leading a global consultation on how to improve talk pages, and we're looking for people that can report on their experiences using (or helping other people to use) wiki talk pages. We'd like to invite you to participate in the consultation, and invite new users to join too.

We thank you in advance for your participation and your help.

Orphaned non-free image File:IXS Enterprise.jpgEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:IXS Enterprise.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:45, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
