Administrators' newsletter – September 2023[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (August 2023).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, TFAs will be automatically semi-protected the day before it is on the main page and through the day after.
  • A discussion at WP:VPP about revision deletion and oversight for dead names found that [s]ysops can choose to use revdel if, in their view, it's the right tool for this situation, and they need not default to oversight. But oversight could well be right where there's a particularly high risk to the person. Use your judgment.

Technical news


  • The SmallCat dispute case has closed. As part of the final decision, editors participating in XfD have been reminded to be careful about forming local consensus which may or may not reflect the broader community consensus. Regular closers of XfD forums were also encouraged to note when broader community discussion, or changes to policies and guidelines, would be helpful.


  • Tech tip: The "Browse history interactively" banner shown at the top of Special:Diff can be used to easily look through a history, assemble composite diffs, or find out what archive something wound up in.

DYK for NBA–ABA All-Star Game[edit]

On 18 September 2023, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article NBA–ABA All-Star Game, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that NBA owners won a binding arbitration that blocked a third NBA–ABA all-star game between the rival basketball leagues? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/NBA–ABA All-Star Game. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, NBA–ABA All-Star Game), and the hook may be added to the statistics page after its run on the Main Page has completed. 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.
