- A request for comment seeking to alleviate pressures on the request an account (ACC) process proposes either raising the account creation limit for extended confirmed editors or granting the account creator permission on request to new ACC tool users.
- In a related matter, the account throttle has been restored to six creations per day as the mitigation activity completed.
- The scope of CSD criterion G8 has been tightened such that the only redirects that it now applies to are those which target non-existent pages.
- The scope of CSD criterion G14 has been expanded slightly to include orphan "Foo (disambiguation)" redirects that target pages that are not disambiguation pages or pages that perform a disambiguation-like function (such as set index articles or lists).
- A request for comment seeks to determine whether Wikipedia:Office actions should be a policy page or an information page.
- The Wikimedia Foundation's Community health initiative plans to design and build a new user reporting system to make it easier for people experiencing harassment and other forms of abuse to provide accurate information to the appropriate channel for action to be taken. Community feedback is invited.
- In February 2019, the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) changed its office actions policy to include temporary and project-specific bans. The WMF exercised this new ability for the first time on the English Wikipedia on 10 June 2019 to temporarily ban and desysop . This action has resulted in significant community discussion, a request for arbitration (permalink), and, either directly or indirectly, the resignations of numerous administrators and functionaries. The WMF Board of Trustees is aware of the situation, and discussions continue on a statement and a way forward. The Arbitration Committee has sent an open letter to the WMF Board.

The Great Wall of China: DocumentaryEdit
1, 2, 3, 4. Geng Zhou, a soldier of Qi Jiguang, is a fictional character, but he is the second main protagonist, then he could have an own page. It could also be created the documentary page: Behind the Great Wall. Please, can you help me, because I'm too busy? Thank you very much. --126.96.36.199 13:31, 4 July 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk)

You are invited to join us at the "picnic anyone can edit" in the lovely Southpoint Park on Roosevelt Island, as part of the Great American Wiknic celebrations being held across the USA. Remember it's a wiki-picnic, which means potluck.
This year the Wiknic will double as a "Strategy Salon" (more information at Wiknic page), using open space technology to address major questions facing our social movement.
Celebrate our 13th year of wiki-picnics! We hope to see you there! Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Wikimedia New York City Team 21:36, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Discussion on WP:ROUTINEEdit
Greetings, I started a RFC at Wikipedia talk:Notability (people) that concerns an issue you mentioned at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Wink Hartman. I do not know how to mass send notification to others involved, or if it is necessary, but I did mention the AFD and you might have interest. I am also notifying @Cbl62:, @DGG:, and @Paulmcdonald:, not because of any !votes but as admins likely to close, and opinions concerning inclusion or exclusion, at the location. If I have made any errors please feel free to correct them or whatever action might be necessary for the discussion. Otr500 (talk) 19:30, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

You unblocked wnt, with a rationale about "having learned their lesson" in your judgement. Did you discuss this with anyone else before doing that, such as the blocking or reviewing admins? cygnis insignis 04:21, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
