Administrators' newsletter – April 2022Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (March 2022).

  Guideline and policy news

  Technical news

  • Access to Special:RevisionDelete has been expanded to include users who have the deletelogentry and deletedhistory rights. This means that those in the Researcher user group and Checkusers who are not administrators can now access Special:RevisionDelete. The users able to view the special page after this change are the 3 users in the Researcher group, as there are currently no checkusers who are not already administrators. (T301928)
  • When viewing deleted revisions or diffs on Special:Undelete a back link to the undelete page for the associated page is now present. (T284114)

New administrator activity requirementEdit

The administrator policy has been updated with new activity requirements following a successful Request for Comment.

Beginning January 1, 2023, administrators who meet one or both of the following criteria may be desysopped for inactivity if they have:

  1. Made neither edits nor administrative actions for at least a 12-month period OR
  2. Made fewer than 100 edits over a 60-month period

Administrators at risk for being desysopped under these criteria will continue to be notified ahead of time. Thank you for your continued work.

My apologiesEdit

RE: Eminence Front.

I misread the history page. I was trying, as another edited already had, to remove entirely unsourced entries that in fact were rather trivial in nature and pretty much amounted to OR. Seems it was not you. Again, please accept my apology. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.69.251.97 (talk) 02:48, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

No harm, no foul. Appreciate your stopping by and clearing it up. Tyrol5 [talk] 01:24, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
