Just beginning my edit journey here on WikipediaEdit

Hi! My name is Chaitanya, and like most others from my generation, I have been heavily reliant on Wikipedia to complete science projects in school, ascertain facts, and even learn trivia. For a very long time, I've used Wikipedia as a reader. But, I began exploring the idea of editing when I heard the episode pertaining to this on Simblified. Your journey as an editor, and subsequently as an administrator is truly inspiring. I was hoping you could give me a few pointers with regards to beginning this journey on Wikipedia, and how to go about making a difference. The whole framework of Wikipedia's rules is a little intimidating, but I am trying to be bold, as the tutorials have often suggested. I look forward to hearing from you. :) CBhat109 (talk) 07:17, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivityEdit

  Established policy provides for removal of the administrative permissions of users who have not made any edits or logged actions in the preceding twelve months. Because you have been inactive, your administrative permissions will be removed if you do not return to activity within the next month.

Inactive administrators are encouraged to rejoin the project in earnest rather than to make token edits to avoid loss of administrative permissions. Resources and support for reengaging with the project are available at Wikipedia:WikiProject Editor Retention/administrators. If you do not intend to rejoin the project in the foreseeable future, please consider voluntarily resigning your administrative permissions by making a request at the bureaucrats' noticeboard.

Thank you for your past contributions to the project. — JJMC89 bot 00:06, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

ArbCom 2019 special circularEdit

 
Administrators must secure their accounts

The Arbitration Committee may require a new RfA if your account is compromised.

View additional information

This message was sent to all administrators following a recent motion. Thank you for your attention. For the Arbitration Committee, Cameron11598 02:32, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)Edit

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of Greenkeepers PageEdit

Hello,

Wikipedia shows that you recently deleted a page called Greenkeepers, concerned about something along the lines of "club at high school in Beijing." I would like to bring the page back with a few clarifications that it's not actually just a club. The idea originated from the high school, but Greenkeepers is a verifiable non-profit organization with branches in the U.S. and in Beijing. How can I restore the page?

Thank you, 2601:641:C180:1530:B944:7B58:3BE7:68CF (talk) 00:12, 28 November 2019 (UTC)Greenkeepers International
