System administrators history merge

Please merge back these edits to the table: [1] to the main page, after deleting the vandalism in the same timespan [2] to keep history clean. --Nemo 14:04, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Done. I hope that went all alright. Sorry that it took so long, you should become a sysop again ;) --MF-W 01:42, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
Hrmmm. I really wish we wouldn't do "history merges" like this. It results in awful diffs such as this. :-/ --MZMcBride (talk) 21:23, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Meta:Requests for CentralNotice admin/Benoit Rochon

Would a bureaucrat mind reviewing this request? PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:08, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

done. -Barras talk 13:54, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks guys! Can't wait for next request! Benoit Rochon (talk) 03:15, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Association of Wikipedians Reformers/ Alliance to Change Wikipedia

Should this be deleted per Meta:Deletion_policy#G3 ("controversial clause") or taken to RfD? I'm not sure, so I'm inviting other admins to comment. I hope I didn't make a mistake by opening this discussion instead of just deleting it. Of course, the page would be better if it had more specific proposed changes (but not attacks on specific admins). PiRSquared17 (talk) 02:55, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Someone requested speedy deletion. I deleted it. --MF-W 14:05, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Anontalkpagetext

TOR check link is dead. --Glaisher [talk] 16:36, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

English Wikipedia uses http://toolserver.org/~overlordq/scripts/checktor.fcgi?ip= --Glaisher [talk] 16:38, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
I updated the link on the MediaWiki page with what the English Wikipedia uses, thank you. I should note that once the TS goes down officially (not sure when that is) that this will have to be updated along with all the other links all over all wikis. Killiondude (talk) 06:44, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Start Wikivoyage election

Please

  )

   supposed_old_text_add:=str_replace(str_replace(new_wikitext, voteline, ""),votelineSubst,"");
   supposed_new_text_remove:=str_replace(old_wikitext, voteline, "");
   (supposed_old_text_add !== old_wikitext)&
   (supposed_new_text_remove !== new_wikitext)
  )
// Wikivoyage logo election 2013 [[Wikivoyage/Logo 2013]]
if (!window.POTY && 'view' === mw.config.get('wgAction') && /Wikivoyage\/Logo\/2013\//.test(mw.config.get('wgPageName'))) {
	importScript('User:Rillke/logo 2013 voy.js')
}

You may modify the above (e.g. copy this my script into the mw-namespace, if you think this is required; at Commons I am sysop anyway) Thank you. -- Rillke (talk) 23:16, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

  Done. Thank you for helping with this. Maybe next time you should consider requesting temporary adminship. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:45, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. Temporary adminship would mean a lot of paper-work, I guess. -- Rillke (talk) 23:59, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
Nah, it would probably be uncontroversial like this (although we have WM:CNA for this now...) PiRSquared17 (talk) 00:01, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Interwiki map

Could someone please look at the consensus Talk:Interwiki_map#Wiki here? Thanks, This, that and the other (talk) 01:15, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Do we have stats on its usage? I'd be hesitant to remove something with thousands of uses. PiRSquared17 (talk) 01:30, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, please consider Talk:Interwiki_map#Hackerspaces.org and Talk:Interwiki_map#LibrePlanet.org, they've been sitting here for 2 seasons. Thank you -- Hellekin (talk) 11:18, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
