Resign - wikibreak

Hello. I am busy and I am taking a wikibreak and I wish to resign my sysop flags. I can help out if Meta need any languistic assistance (Chinese and Cantonese). Regards, Hillgentleman 04:31, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Dutch Wikinews

Hello sysop or bureaucrat, There has been a voting about the closure of the Dutch Wikinews. All procedures were followed and the voting has been done. Can someone close the Dutch Wikinews (place it back in the incubator)? Since I don't have the rights to do it. Can someone do it, please..? If I need to address the question on another page please let me know. 12:35, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Meta Administrators or Bureaucrats can't close projects. This is done by system administrators vía bugzilla. You should open a bug, linking to the discussion and requesting the wiki to be closed and the content moved back to the incubator (I'm not sure if devs will do the importing...).

Protected page edit request

Hi, I uploaded an edited version of GerardM's portrait. Didn't realize his original extension was in caps. Please edit the candidate page to replace the existing version with File:GerardM.jpg. The new version brings out the features in shadow. Durova 01:53, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Could you upload over the original image instead? If we update the English version with a new filename, we have to edit all the translations too, so if we can avoid that I'd prefer it. :-) Cbrown1023 talk 05:31, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
