User talk:Rschen7754

I manage my talk page with the following guidelines to keep the high volume of posts and 230 active talk page stalkers in some sort of order:

  1. Please start new topics at the bottom of the page, even if it is related to a section above. Otherwise it is difficult to find the posting.
  2. I will reply to your posts on this page to keep threading unless requested or unless it is extremely urgent.
  3. I'm less active than I was before; if I haven't responded to something I should have, please ping me again.
  4. Unlike some other administrators, I generally do mind if you undo my administrative actions without discussing it with me, unless it was an obvious procedural error on my part.
  5. I sometimes close discussions when it is clear that nothing good will come out of them. I reserve the right to do so at my own discretion. I also reserve the right to rollback any further comments on that discussion topic.


Short-term goals: TBA

Proposed deletion of File:Map of Canada Hwy WPs.pngEdit

 

The file File:Map of Canada Hwy WPs.png has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Orphaned map.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. ~ Rob13Talk 14:44, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

@BU Rob13: I have no objection, but since Mitchazenia has edited it I don't think it qualifies for U1. --Rschen7754 04:20, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
That certainly makes sense. It's probably best to wait out the seven days, given the other version uploaded. ~ Rob13Talk 10:27, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – November 2018Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (October 2018).

  Guideline and policy news

  Technical news

  • Partial blocks is now available for testing on the Test Wikipedia. The new functionality allows you to block users from editing specific pages. Bugs may exist and can be reported on the local talk page or on Meta. A discussion regarding deployment to English Wikipedia will be started by community liaisons sometime in the near future.
  • A user script is now available to quickly review unblock requests.
  • The 2019 Community Wishlist Survey is now accepting new proposals until November 11, 2018. The results of this survey will determine what software the Wikimedia Foundation's Community Tech team will work on next year. Voting on the proposals will take place from November 16 to November 30, 2018. Specifically, there is a proposal category for admins and stewards that may be of interest.

  Arbitration

  • Eligible editors will be invited to nominate themselves as candidates in the 2018 Arbitration Committee Elections starting on November 4 until November 13. Voting will begin on November 19 and last until December 2.
  • The Arbitration Committee's email address has changed to arbcom-en wikimedia.org. Other email lists, such as functionaries-en and clerks-l, remain unchanged.

A cup of coffee for you!Edit

  That cinnamon crumb cake really wasn't that good... Drmies (talk) 02:47, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
@Drmies: Thanks. I don't know how the actual candidates do it, writing meaningful questions is hard enough. Glad I quit the voting guide game long ago (and the functionary game too, but that's a different story...) --Rschen7754 06:05, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
