Deep water blackoutEdit
News and updates for administrators from the past month (July 2019).
- Following a research project on masking IP addresses, the Foundation is starting a new project to improve the privacy of IP editors. The result of this project may significantly change administrative and counter-vandalism workflows. The project is in the very early stages of discussions and there is no concrete plan yet. Admins and the broader community are encouraged to leave feedback on the talk page.
- The new page reviewer right is bundled with the admin tool set. Many admins regularly help out at Special:NewPagesFeed, but they may not be aware of improvements, changes, and new tools for the Curation system. Stay up to date by subscribing here to the NPP newsletter that appears every two months, and/or putting the reviewers' talk page on your watchlist.
Since the introduction of temporary user rights, it is becoming more usual to accord the New Page Reviewer right on a probationary period of 3 to 6 months in the first instance. This avoids rights removal for inactivity at a later stage and enables a review of their work before according the right on a permanent basis.

"Iranian Turks (disambiguation)" listed at Redirects for discussionEdit
An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Iranian Turks (disambiguation). Since you had some involvement with the Iranian Turks (disambiguation) redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you wish to do so.

I need your advice on Talk:Sinai, as I am in a discussion with a colleague about the primary topic of Sinai. You reverted that back to its primary topic some ten years ago. But the colleague seems determined to change it to a link to a disambiguation page, breaking hundreds of links in the process. 08:34, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
- Ten years ago, there was no justification given for the change. Now, there is. However, the discussion (such as it is) indicates to me that this is likely to be controversial, so the best solution would be for the colleague to start a WP:RM discussion (that is, proposing to move Sinai (disambiguation) to Sinai) in which we could get other viewpoints and hope to find a consensus. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 16:24, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
