Proposed deletion of Thank You for Smoking (disambiguation)

 

The article Thank You for Smoking (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unnecessary disambiguation page per WP:TWODABS.

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

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

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Re: Hilton Worldwide article

Hi, Vegaswikian. I see from its history that you've edited the Hilton Worldwide article many times. I was wondering if you had a moment to assist me with a request I added to the article's talk page with a few small infobox updates. I can't edit the article directly due to a COI, but I've proposed 3 corrections and provided sourcing and formatted citations to make the request easy to process. If you have a minute to assist, I'd be really grateful. Thanks for considering. Inkian Jason (talk) 17:00, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Actually, please disregard the above comment. My request has been answered and the article has been updated accordingly. I did, however, post a second request on the article's talk page, if you are available to help. Inkian Jason (talk) 19:27, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Members of the "Dutch Reformed Church"

I have just noticed the discussion which you closed at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2013 June 14, and now the categories are an absolute mess. It has confused different denominations - the (defunct) Dutch Reformed Church in the Netherlands, and the Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa (which is actually two denominations). The category Category:American members of the Dutch Reformed Church is technically correct, though I have no idea we are splitting up denominational membership by nationality. We don't, for example, have Category:French Southern Baptists. Anyway, the main problem is the mixup with the phrase "Dutch Reformed Church". StAnselm (talk) 18:21, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I have just realised this is a very old discussion. I don't why I never noticed the discrepancy before. Anyway, my solution is to move Category:South African members of the Dutch Reformed Church to Category:Members of the Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa; merge Category:American members of the Dutch Reformed Church and Category:Dutch members of the Dutch Reformed Church into Category:Members of the Dutch Reformed Church, and delete Category:Members of the Dutch Reformed Church by nationality. Are you able to do that, or do I need to go to CfD?
Since, in fact, you haven't been active for a year, I'll head over to CfD... StAnselm (talk) 18:35, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity

  Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Extended confirmed protection

 Hello, Vegaswikian. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of The NRL Footy Show

Hello Vegaswikian,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged The NRL Footy Show for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Satdeep Gill (talkcontribs 07:57, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
