2016 English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee Election[edit]

Hi Stewards,

Once again we're requesting assistance with the upcoming election and are in need of 3 stewards who will volunteer to serve as scrutineers. Just like in previous years, we ask that the scrutineers assist with inspecting the votes during the voting period. (Monday 00:00, 21 November until Sunday 23:59, 4 December) Ideally, the scrutineers should consist of stewards who edit predominately on projects other than If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch the election commissioners. (Mdann52, Guy Macon, and myself.) Best, Mike VTalk 18:59, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

I did it last time, but if you need help - I'm available also this time. einsbor talk 09:47, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
Hmm, still needs 2 more? I'm available to help. --Stryn (talk) 13:42, 17 November 2016 (UTC)
@Einsbor, Stryn: Yes, we'd greatly appreciate your help this year. If any other steward would like to round out the group, please let us know! :) Mike VTalk 01:41, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Vandalism reports[edit]

Is this still used or monitored? If not, should it be shut down? --Rschen7754 04:03, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

It's very useless, as I'm saying since years. --MF-W 01:03, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Fix required at angWS[edit]

Would a steward please fix the main page at Old English Wikisource, either create s:ang:Main Page as #redirect [[Hēafodsīde]] or move s:ang:Hēafodsīde to be the main page, leaving a redirect. It seems there has been a nomenclature change at some point. <shrug>  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:41, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Grr, the issue is weird "Main Page" works, but s:ang: does not, the link there to s:ang:Hēafodtramet which is defined as main page does not work (and I cannot remember where are all the settings). There is only one modified Mediawiki message, so that is not the issue.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:00, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Fixed. --MF-W 01:03, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Localized name for main page was changed from Hēafodsīde to Hēafodtramet in 2013, which means after the project has been closed (2007), and apparently since then nobody bothered to move the main page (currently located at Hēafodsīde) to the most recent localized name which is Hēafodtramet. So moving Hēafodsīde to Hēafodtramet with leaving redirect behind is the solution.
