Invitation to participate in a discussion about publicly disclosing subscribers of TWL resourcesEdit

Hi SoWhy, I have started a discussion over our Village pump with the aim of maintaining a public list of all editors who are granted access to any TWL resource. Your thoughts and opinions on the proposal are welcome:-) Regards, WBGconverse

Administrators' newsletter – August 2019Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (July 2019).

  Guideline and policy news



  • 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.

SpellForce 3: Soul HarvestEdit

Thank you for creating the article. While I have to admit that I am shocked at the lack of English sources, the DLC is absolutely notable as demonstrated. Saw that it is still in "construction", so there are few references I have found that could help you: Digitally Downloaded (reliable per WP:VG/RS and in English, hooray!) [1], PC Magazine Greece [2], Le Soir [3], and Mladá fronta DNES (an internet version of it) [4]. Jovanmilic97 (talk) 21:15, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

@Jovanmilic97: Thank you! I plan to work on it some more during my lunch break but feel free to add stuff to it. I'll tag the article with {{inuse}} when I'm actively working on it. Regards SoWhy 05:53, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
Will do when I have some time to help! I have been working on creating Nevermind (2015 video game), so I have been a bit busy (I really hope I demonstrated the notability of the game well). Jovanmilic97 (talk) 20:33, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Elsie Joy DavisonEdit

 On 13 August 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Elsie Joy Davison, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Elsie Joy Davison was Britain's first female director of an aircraft company and its first woman pilot to die in World War II? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Elsie Joy Davison. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Elsie Joy Davison), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. 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.

The Wikipedia LibraryEdit

I see that you are an account coordinator of TWL. I've just submitted my application to access Cambridge core. But I see that it's waitlisted. What does this mean? Would you be willing to review my request? Masum Reza📞 03:31, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

@Masumrezarock100: Waitlisted means that there are currently no accounts available for this resource but if new accounts are made available, they will be distributed to those on the waitlist. Unfortunately, I cannot help you with that resource because I have no access to it. Regards SoWhy 06:25, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
I see. Thanks anyway. Masum Reza📞 14:36, 13 August 2019 (UTC)


Hello SoWhy, Would you do a huge favor for me that you do not mind if you nomimate the user Adam9007 for administrator because he made outstanding contributions especially he had help M32 motorway to get the WP:GA status, but he had focusing mostly on Video game related articles such as Dungeon Keeper. Putting it aside he had a good track record on WP:CSD and WP:VANDALISM which he did in good faith. Before you do that if you wish you have look for more track record because i'am currently busy at the moment, Thank you. Sheldybett (talk) 07:20, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

@Sheldybett: You might want to ask Adam first what he thinks about that before asking others to nominate him. Apart from that, I don't think I would be the right person to evaluate him impartially. Adam shares a number of my views on policy, especially deletion, so I think any evaluation of his track record might be skewed by these past interactions. If Adam truly wishes to run for admin, he should ask someone he did not have much interaction with to evaluate his chances realistically, preferably someone who does not share his views. Regards SoWhy 07:32, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Okay, I will have to ask somebody else instead. Sheldybett (talk) 07:38, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

SoWhy, I have asked GoingBatty for the RfA instead, if it's alright for you. Sheldybett (talk) 09:35, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
