DYK for Guy FortEdit

 On 17 April 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Guy Fort, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Brigadier General Guy Fort is the only American-born general officer to be executed by enemy forces? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Guy Fort. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Guy Fort), 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.

Nayyirah WaheedEdit

Hey, I reached out via email regarding Nayyirah Waheed's wikipedia page. When you have a moment please review my email and let me know if you need additional resources to get the request handled. Greatly appreciated. Meauxgul (talk) 02:38, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm deeply sympathetic on your request. But I have no way to know that you are actually the article's subject. In addition, if a subject meets Wikipedia notability guidelines we can't simply delete the article b/c the subject doesn't want the article to exist. Is any of the information wrong? If so I could remove that. But otherwise I'm not sure what I can do here.--SouthernNights (talk) 23:17, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Is there anyway we can speak about this via email so that you I can provide all necessary information and discuss revisions and/or deletion? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Meauxgul (talkcontribs) 22:45, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Cliff ChapmanEdit

I have supporting evidence for why "Cliff Chapman" should be revived as a page. It has created reputational damage to delete the page as "unsuccessful actor".

Cliff Chapman is an Equity member A Spotlight member Represented by Meredith Westwood Mgt and London VO Has around a dozen credits for worlwide selling Games Workshop Black Library audio dramas One Big Finish credit for the Pathfinder Legends series Uk commercial Numerous stage appearances Steve Jordan, writer of plays written for and starring Cliff, has a page, despite Cliff having many more professional credits.

Please remove references to "unsuccessful actor" as it is unjust and causes extreme reputational damage. A successful actor is not merely a Hollywood star.

I didn't write that summary reason for deleting the article, another admin did. That said, there's no reason for that statement to be there. I've deleted the deletion summary including the words "unsuccessful actor." However, there's still no proof the subject meets Wikipedia notability guidelines. Until such proof is presented there's no reason to undelete the article. I hope this helps.--SouthernNights (talk) 22:50, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

See what I'm talking aboutEdit

I wanted you to see the most recent attempt to move the article title for African-American Civil Rights Movement (1954–1968) in Requested move 23 November 2017. As I said in our discussion, we're averaging one move a year. Mitchumch (talk) 10:54, 24 November 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, this needs to be resolved. If you put forward a solution I'd support you.--SouthernNights (talk) 00:42, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Regarding semi-protect at article Hedwig KohnEdit

You placed an indefinite semi-protect on the article Hedwig Kohn. While obviously the semi-protection was needed, you left it as indefinite, which I assume was an oversight on your part. A three day semi-protect seems like it would have been sufficient, particularly as this article has never been subject to semi-protection in the past. Request modification of the semi-protect to expire on April 8, 2019. I will also make this request at WP:RPP, as I have noted that you are currently not editing on a regular basis.

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 02:55, 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)
