Michigan tornado

You put the michigan tornado that gotten the pds tagged as a possible tornado, in fact it wasn't a possible tornado and a graph by sam emmerson put the tornado as possible ef4 intensity but i highly doubt doing ef4 damage but it lifted debris over 15k feet.

Looking at ANI I'm wondering

whether there is a CIR problem with LoveHop123. Doug Weller talk 08:59, 28 August 2023 (UTC)

@Doug Weller, I was wondering about that as well. Their continuous addition of block templates, combined with their unexplained removals (there’s more than just this, all of it is found on their contributions), likely shows that they have a CIR problem. Now, they already apologized when an ANI discussion was brought up for their removals but I don’t think the disruptive editing is going to stop. So they most likely have a CIR issue, and I’m not against another ANI discussion about their CIR concerns or even a block given their disruptive edits and their history. Tails Wx 11:17, 28 August 2023 (UTC)
Sorry, as you will see I finally felt a block for the Coulombe was justified if only to avoid timewasting if they came back and were reverted and replied with more PAs. I've said I'm happy with it being overturned, if you think it should be please reply to my last post at ANI. Thanks. Doug Weller talk 12:02, 28 August 2023 (UTC)

Template:User likes Tails Wx

Hello Tails Wx, I stumbled across your user page and noticed that you had the userbox Template:User likes Tails Wx, which uses the image File:Tails Drawing.png. Unfortunately, the video game character Tails is non-free content, which is not allowed on the Wikimedia Commons, as well as on the English Wikipedia outside of strict rules. Even an unofficial drawing of the character isn't allowed because it is considered a "derivative work" of the non-free content. Because of this, I've nominated the image for speedy deletion per commons:COM:F3. I just wanted to give you a heads up—you may wish to choose a different image for that userbox. All the best, Mz7 (talk) 06:55, 29 August 2023 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up Mz7–the reason why I've reverted your edit here– is because, after all, I'm the one who suggested the image. I'll look for a different image, again, thanks! Tails Wx 16:42, 29 August 2023 (UTC)

There is a mop reserved in your name

You are a remarkable editor in many ways. You would be a good administrator, in my opinion, and appear to be well qualified. You personify an administrator without tools and have gained my support already!

Why are you not an admin? You should seriously consider running at this point. #prodraxis connect 15:11, 27 August 2023 (UTC)

You're a name I've come across, so that's already a good start. – John M Wolfson (talk • contribs) 21:12, 27 August 2023 (UTC)
I appreciate your work cleaning up spam. Your CSD log shows you do a lot of good cleanup work in draft space and your AfD stats show you understand deletion policy well enough to match outcomes most of the time. I spot checked a few and your rationales seem to be influential.

Administrators' newsletter – September 2023

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

Arbitration

  • 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.

Miscellaneous

  • 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.

Copypatrol question

Hi! Just as a general question: when you're using copypatrol, are you waiting until the revdel is completed to mark the page as fixed? — Red-tailed hawk (nest) 17:30, 1 September 2023 (UTC)

Yeah, since the copyvio is still there in the page history, and I wouldn't deem it fixed until it's revdel'd. Tails Wx 17:32, 1 September 2023 (UTC)
Ok. I understand where you're coming from, and I've opened up a related discussion on Meta as it pertains to the specific instruction. — Red-tailed hawk (nest) 17:45, 1 September 2023 (UTC)

Question from Helperaz2 (23:09, 4 September 2023)

Hello! Hope you are having a wonderful day! I would like to contest the speedy deletion of the page (Draft: Biren Zaverchand) because I feel that it was wrongfully deleted. I am more than happy to change/alter any parts that you feel aren't right or constitute "self-promotion". Please help!! --Helperaz2 (talk) 23:09, 4 September 2023 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)@Helperaz2: I’m not sure the full context here, given Draft:Biren Zaverchand exists and isn’t deleted. That said, here is some helpful advice:
  1. It appears the draft is on Biren Zaverchand, which is a living person. So, the person in question has to pass the requirements of Wikipedia:Notability (people).
  2. To pass the notability requirements, an article needs to have secondary reliable sources, which contain information related to the person. These need to be more than a simple passing mention. You can learn about citing sources here: Wikipedia:Citing sources.
  3. A quick look at the draft shows that it is a single sentence and no secondary reliable sources are cited. If the article was originally in mainspace (i.e. Biren Zaverchand), and it was this quality, then speedy deletion would have been appropriate, given the article (current state of the draft) would not pass the notability requirements linked above.
Hopefully this helps! Cheers! The Weather Event Writer (Talk Page) 00:09, 5 September 2023 (UTC)
Hi @Helperaz2! It seems like it has been already deleted, and you’ve also re-created it.
Regarding the deletion, Wikipedia is not a place to promote or advertise. Repeatedly doing so may result in a block. You are also welcome to read WP:PROMOTION and WP:NOTADVERT to understand Wikipedia’s guidelines on advertising and promotion and why it isn’t allowed here. Hope this helps!

Question from Meimpink (00:46, 6 September 2023)

Hi Tails. I made an account because it looked like my IP address was in a blocked range, so I was unable to fix a typo on an article I've successfully edited before. If you're familiar with how IP addresses and user-blocking works (I'm not, so I'm sorry if this question seems to be common sense), do you know if making an account will prevent me, for the foreseeable future at least, from IP-address-range blocks? --Meimpink (talk) 00:46, 6 September 2023 (UTC)

Hi, Meimpink! Yes, you'll be prevented from IP-address range blocks if you make an account. On an unrelated note, however, if a separate user connected to your IP address is blocked, then you'll be blocked as well. If this happens, you've done nothing wrong; simply request an unblock or IP block exempt. See WP:EXEMPT for further information regarding that. In the meantime, though–your account will be free of IP blocks in the foreseeable future. Happy editing! Tails Wx 01:53, 6 September 2023 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation! Meimpink (talk) 07:33, 6 September 2023 (UTC)

Thank you for your incredible contribution to Hurricane Idalia

Hi! I was snooping around the statistics pages for Hurricane Idalia and I noticed how much work you had put into the article. I just felt like thanking you because, as a Floridian, I feel especially drawn to hurricanes and their respective articles which impact my home state, and you did incredible work in regards to our latest storm.

I felt especially concerned about Idalia because of its impact on a rural and poorer region of my state. I know if Idalia had impacted a more highly populated area of the state it would have been given much more love, though to be fair, there has been an incredible amount of love from you and other Wikipedians given to the article despite that.

So, thank you very much! Have a great day/night! ~~ RaskBunzzz (talk) 07:02, 8 September 2023 (UTC)

Hey there, @RaskBunzzz! No problem! Yes, I've also been tracking Idalia since it was a tropical wave and to develop and threaten Florida was especially concerning since it would undergo rapid intensification. And don't worry; I'll always try to update and add natural disaster articles wherever they impact and how intense they are! Tails Wx 12:11, 8 September 2023 (UTC)

David Thomsen: Prolific Wikipedian and Guild member David Thomsen (Dthomsen8) died in November 2022. He was a regular copy editor who took part in many of our Drives and Blitzes. An obituary was published in the mid-July issue of The Signpost. Tributes can be left on David's talk page.

Election news: In our mid-year Election of Coordinators, Dhtwiki was chosen as lead coordinator, Miniapolis and Zippybonzo continue as assistant coordinators, and Baffle gab1978 stepped down from the role. If you're interested in helping out at the GOCE, please consider nominating yourself for our next election in December; it's your WikiProject and it doesn't organize itself!
