Doncram Re: WP:NRHPHELP See how I cleaned up the Alabama listing. If you have no objections, over time, I'll clean up states one by one. I think we are in an age when readers want to scroll down and eyeball what's there, reading as little as possible when they scroll. On a Google or Bing search, I really didn't immediately see a lot that led me anywhere on Alabama. But, boy oh boy, when I looked at the ALA Alabama state databases, it was a wonderful surprise of informational link. Every state is different; ALA can only list what the state provides. I've previously searched through midwest/east coast states and came up dry. I certainly didn't expect Alabama to be such a bonanza, but Hooray! for Alabama. Under History, People and Culture in the ALA link, they have hardbound newspapers, image digital collections. Wonderful. — Maile (talk) 22:17, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

ArbCom 2019 special circularEdit
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.

Just a reminder that when changing images in main page templates such as DYK, they need to be protected on Commons first, to prevent vandals replacing them with something obscene in the time between the replacement and the Commons protection bot catching up with the new image. Unless I've misread the course of events it looks like you didn't do that with the Gloucester Docks one. The easiest way is to add the image at Wikipedia:Main_Page/Commons_media_protection, then go to the Commons page mentioned there and wait for it to appear. Thanks — Amakuru (talk) 21:30, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
- Thanks for the advice. The image is protected at commons. Krinklebot seems to have picked it up within a minute of my swapping it. But I'm saving the link you provided above, in case I do this again. — Maile (talk) 21:43, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

Maile, do you do history merges? Something very odd happened to this nomination, and while this is the actual page that needs to be retained, it needs to have a history merge with Template:Did you know nominations/7 Championship, after which the latter can be deleted.
What happened is this: when Template:Did you know nominations/WWE 24/7 Championship was created, the nompage parameter was only "7 Championship" rather than "WWE 24/7 Championship"—the software has trouble dealing with the slash character in an article name, because of the way it parses things.
So, when LLcentury went to review the nomination, it went to (and created?) a "7 Championship" page including a transclusion of the original page and placed the review there, plus all subsequent edits by LLcentury went there, a test edit (removed shortly thereafter) by Aoba47, and then Cwmhiraeth's post noting issues.
In parallel to that, ONUnicorn did a test edit (also removed) on the original "WWE 24/7 Championship". A couple of days ago, Teratix noticed that the review was in the wrong place and copied it over to the WWE 24/7 Championship page, but didn't fix that template. I've just fixed it so all the review is in one place; we just need the parallel edit histories to be combined on said Template:Did you know nominations/WWE 24/7 Championship nomination template. When that's done, Template:Did you know nominations/7 Championship can go away.
- @BlueMoonset: I've never done a history merge, and am not familiar with how that process works. But @Anthony Appleyard: seems to be doing many of them at WP:RFHM. — Maile (talk) 11:45, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
- @BlueMoonset, Maile66, ONUnicorn, and Cwmhiraeth: The matter in pages Template:Did you know nominations/WWE 24/7 Championship and Template:Did you know nominations/WWE 24/7 Championship seems to be discussion by people who are editing, not the sort of text which is commonly found in templates. What do you want me to history-merge with what? Anthony Appleyard (talk) 12:02, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
- @Anthony Appleyard: DYK templates are used for discussing individual nominations. Each of the thousands of DYK nominations has its own template, so they are not like other types of templates. @BlueMoonset: should confirm this, but from what I see, Template:Did you know nominations/WWE 24/7 Championship is the legitimate template. Template:Did you know nominations/7 Championship was created in error and should be merged into WWE 24/7 Championship. After the merge, 7 Championship would be deleted. — Maile (talk) 12:15, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
- @BlueMoonset, Maile66, ONUnicorn, and Cwmhiraeth: #1 (Template:Did you know nominations/WWE 24/7 Championship) and #2 (Template:Did you know nominations/7 Championship) cannot be history-merged, because they are WP:Parallel histories. All the discussion text which is in #2 is also in #1, so I see nothing that needs to be done. I have marked #2 to tell people to edit in #1 instead. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 13:16, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

Wikiproject Military history coordinator election nominations openEdit
Nominations for the upcoming project coordinator election are now open. A team of up to ten coordinators will be elected for the next year. The project coordinators are the designated points of contact for issues concerning the project, and are responsible for maintaining our internal structure and processes. They do not, however, have any authority over article content or editor conduct, or any other special powers. More information on being a coordinator is available here. If you are interested in running, please sign up here by 23:59 UTC on 14 September! Voting doesn't commence until 15 September. If you have any questions, you can contact any member of the coord team. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 02:38, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
During a 1900 Congressional deadlock, she departed for Honolulu with her Washington, D.C., Doctor Charles H. English (sometimes referred to as John H. English). Newspapers speculated that the Queen, having been diagnosed with cancer, was going home to die.
- Is there something missing in the sentence after DC?
- Oh, I see. It's the Liliuokalani article. I think if you make the word "doctor" lower case, it makes the sentence flow as it should. — Maile (talk) 03:02, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

Maile, can I ask you to please archive the second section on the DYK talk page, "Oldest nominations needing DYK reviewers"? The regular archiver isn't getting rid of it because of some later timestamps on the page, but it is obsolete: the newer version of that section, "Older nominations needing DYK reviewers", has been up for a few days, and people should be using that one, not the obsolete one. Besides, a shorter DYK talk page is always a good thing. (I've never used OneClickArchiver; I generally prefer to let the bot take care of things.) I'm only asking because I saw you use this app on the page in late August. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:24, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
News and updates for administrators from the past month (August 2019).
- Editors using the mobile website on Wikipedia can opt-in to new advanced features via your settings page. This will give access to more interface links, special pages, and tools.
- The advanced version of the edit review pages (recent changes, watchlist, and related changes) now includes two new filters. These filters are for "All contents" and "All discussions". They will filter the view to just those namespaces.
- A request for comment is open to provide an opportunity to amend the structure, rules, and procedures of the 2019 English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee election and to resolve any issues not covered by existing rules.
Milhist coordinator election voting has commencedEdit
G'day everyone, voting for the 2019 Wikiproject Military history coordinator tranche is now open. This is a simple approval vote; only "support" votes should be made. Project members should vote for any candidates they support by 23:59 (UTC) on 28 September 2018. Thanks, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 03:37, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Prep 2: Salomon KlassEdit
Hi, I'm a little surprised that you didn't hold this nomination for an image slot. We worked very hard on the licensing, and it really is a great hook. At the very least it deserves a quirky slot. Yoninah (talk) 20:48, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
- @Yoninah: I originally had it in the image slot. Then I noticed that just two preps up, we already have an image slot of someone in military uniform. The Nehru nom was approved, somewhat perfect for an image slot, and I believe in the Prep that will be in the right time frame on the main page. I moved Klass down in the set so as not to have to revert the promotion. My thinking, is wait until another Prep or two opens up, and then you can move it to one of them in the image slot. I just didn't want to lose Klass, to just shove it somewhere else. We can correct this for an image slot, but I think we need more preps to empty up first. Which future Prep do you think it would work for? — Maile (talk) 21:00, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
- Klass now has the image slot in Prep 3. So if you want to move him around to a later prep, go ahead. No objections here. Sorry for the confusion. — Maile (talk) 21:30, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
