Speedy deletion nomination of Eva DennisEdit

Hello, Mindmatrix,

Welcome to Wikipedia! I edit here too, under the username Eagleash and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I have tagged an article that you started, Eva Dennis, for deletion, because it's impossible to identify the subject of the article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top. If the page is already deleted by the time you come across this message and you wish to retrieve the deleted material, please contact the deleting administrator.

For any further query, please leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Eagleash}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . Thanks!

Eva Dennis listed at Redirects for discussionEdit

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Eva Dennis. Since you had some involvement with the Eva Dennis redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Jessamyn (talk) 16:06, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

OpenStack page editEdit

Hi, I reinserted the "aka O~S". I found it useful to know that sometimes is shorten that way on IRCs. Maybe there could be a better way to underline it so I wonder why you removed it so to better modify it in a more understandable page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Madstilt (talkcontribs) 11:38, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Summary changeEdit

Noted. I will check and see how to modify that because the edit summary is automated by the common.js interface on the script. Thank you for letting me know. In regard to the American and international sports figures that I have already done, would you be opposed to me continuing the format that I have already used? If so, that is no problem at all and I will look at creating a script for that summary. I was basing all of that off of a previous user using the script for editing the formats. User:Ohconfucius/script/MOSNUM dates is the script in question. Red Director (talk) 16:48, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Ok. Thank you for the quick reply. I did recognize that there were some inconsistencies on some of the non-American articles based on users who had added the change in the past. I did do some research toward the end of the international formatting. Unless blatantly obvious what goes there, I will hold off on those. My question here is, do I still need to modify my edit summary on the ones where the one to use is obvious? That is not a problem if needed. Red Director (talk) 17:35, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Ducks Unlimited Canada (D.U.C.)Edit

If you wish to edit or add anything, I will be working on it for D.U.C. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lowedwayne (talkcontribs) 03:04, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

File:Coach's Corner.jpgEdit

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for the calculation of the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. See User:RonBot for info on how to not get these messages.

The 10,000 ChallengeEdit

I don't believe in routinely adding every single new article I create to that list. Political Blind Date isn't really a long or detailed article, it was a case of "I can find enough sourcing to get something in place because it gets over a notability criterion, but I cannot yet find enough sourcing to really make the article anything more than a basic stub" — but the purpose of The 10,000 Challenge is to highlight quality rather than quantity. So I only add my new article creations there if I'm able to do much better than the bare minimum (e.g. Chester Knight), and not if all I can do is "this exists, here's why it's notable, the end" (e.g. Political Blind Date).

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 03:02, 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 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

MississaugaEdit

Hi there. I noticed that way back you created Template:Communities of Mississauga. There is also Template:Mississauga, which lists "neighbourhoods and subdivisions". Could these templates be merged, or the neighbourhood information be moved to your template? My goal is to add two ghost towns, Ebenezer, Brampton and Elmbank, Ontario, but I need to clean up the templates first. Cheers! Magnolia677 (talk) 07:33, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

@Magnolia677: Perhaps we should have a broader discussion about this at Wikipedia talk:Canadian Wikipedians' notice board, given that there are a number of other such templates I created around the same time (King, Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Whitchurch–Stouffville, and those by other editors, such as Template:LangleyNeighbourhoods; there may be others). BTW: I don't think subdivisions merit inclusion in the template - we should use the neighbourhoods defined by the city (see this, for example), and I'm not sure Ebenezer belongs on either template.
