DYK for Museum of French ArtEdit

On 31 May 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Museum of French Art, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Museum of French Art once exhibited Napoleon's penis? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Museum of French Art. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Museum of French Art), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. 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.

Sixth boroughEdit

Hi, Pharos. Long time no see. Hope you're doing well. I noticed you made some additions to Sixth borough, some of which was indeed supported by the cited New York Times article (like the "Lower Lower Manhattan" bit), but the mention of T. Kennard Thomson was not, so I reverted it. I tried searching through that NYT article, and couldn't find mention of him, nor was he mentioned anywhere else in the Wikipedia article.

possible identity theft?Edit

@Pharos: I was unable to log into WikiConference:2021/Main Page as User:DavidMCEddy a few minutes ago. I've been "User:DavidMCEddy" since 2010-03-26 in many Wikimedia Foundation projects. I tried to reset my password for WikiConference:User:DavidMCEddy and couldn't. So I registered WikiConference:User:LauraEckenberg. It accepted that.

I'm writing you, because if someone else is actually using WikiConference:User:DavidMCEddy, I would consider it identity theft. It's probably just something silly in the User ID management in WikiConference North America. However, I felt a need to ask about it.

Thanks for all you do to try to increase access to the sum of all human knowledge. DavidMCEddy (talk) 17:58, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

The system would not let me voteEdit

Per your request, "This is the last day to vote", I reviewed and ranked the 72 candidates I found with statement. In trying to enter my ranks, I could not find some of the candidates on the list. After ranking roughly half of them, I tried to submit my votes. It said I had to log in to vote. I tried to log in using my usual login. It did not accept that. Then it said, "You do not need to be logged in to vote."

If the number of votes seem reasonable and there are few complaints like this, please ignore. Otherwise, I will testify that (a) the voting system was very hard to use, and (b) it seemed not to accept my vote. DavidMCEddy (talk) 01:33, 25 October 2021 (UTC)

Administrators will no longer be autopatrolledEdit

A recently closed Request for Comment (RFC) reached consensus to remove Autopatrolled from the administrator user group. You may, similarly as with Edit Filter Manager, choose to self-assign this permission to yourself. This will be implemented the week of December 13th, but if you wish to self-assign you may do so now. To find out when the change has gone live or if you have any questions please visit the Administrator's Noticeboard. 20:06, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered usersEdit

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)
