Deleting Section

How do I delete a section on my Wikipedia page? Everytime I delete the personal life section, someone reverts it back. None of this was approved and I am concerned about my family's safety. (talk) 01:55, 26 December 2021 (UTC)

RFA 2021 Completed

The 2021 re-examination of RFA has been completed. 23 (plus 2 variants) ideas were proposed. Over 200 editors participated in this final phase. Three changes gained consensus and two proposals were identified by the closers as having the potential to gain consensus with some further discussion and iteration. Thanks to all who helped to close the discussion, and in particular Primefac, Lee Vilenski, and Ymblanter for closing the most difficult conversations and for TonyBallioni for closing the review of one of the closes.

The following proposals gained consensus and have all been implemented:

  1. Revision of standard question 1 to Why are you interested in becoming an administrator? Special thanks to xaosflux for help with implementation.
  2. A new process, Administrative Action Review (XRV) designed to review if an editor's specific use of an advanced permission, including the admin tools, is consistent with policy in a process similar to that of deletion review and move review. Thanks to all the editors who contributed (and are continuing to contribute) to the discussion of how to implement this proposal.
  3. Removal of autopatrol from the administrator's toolkit. Special thanks to Wugapodes and Seddon for their help with implementation.

The following proposals were identified by the closers as having the potential to gain consensus with some further discussion and iteration:

  1. An option for people to run for temporary adminship (proposal, discussion, & close)
  2. An optional election process (proposal & discussion and close review & re-close)

Editors who wish to discuss these ideas or other ideas on how to try to address any of the six issues identified during phase 1 for which no proposal gained are encouraged to do so at RFA's talk page or an appropriate village pump.

A final and huge thanks all those who participated in this effort to improve our RFA process over the last 4 months.

This is the final update with no further talk page messages planned.

Stop deleting references to the Webbs' outright racism. (talk) 01:44, 6 January 2022 (UTC)


Thank you for showing me the sandbox, I'm still new to wiki and did that quick "test" before writing a new paragraph without knowing there was a place for it. I'll avoid any future needless edits from now on. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HSperer (talkcontribs) 18:58, 8 January 2022 (UTC)


Hi, I hope I'm doing this right. I tried to post an image on The Anime Man's profile and the picture was from wikimedia commons as well as copyright free. Can you explain how I can get a better picture or what I did wrong since I thought I went through the right avenues?

Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Platysaur (talkcontribs) 01:35, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

Hello, Platysaur. Yes, you're doing this right. But, your question about the image; it is not copyright free. It has been uploaded as such but tagged for deletion as there is no indication the author has released it from copyright. It is set to be removed. Copyright is a serious concern here, we protect the holders of those rights in order to protect the encyclopedia. Unless you yourself took the image, it is likely protected. If you found it on a website, it is likely protected. Ifnord (talk) 01:47, 17 January 2022 (UTC)


Why you reverting my edits.I try to clean to make it more easily readable (talk) 16:41, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

I noticed that you recently removed content from Sneha (actress) without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. Ifnord (talk) 16:43, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

John Comaroff article

Hello! New information about John Comaroff's sexual harassment allegations has come out. Harvard has found him guilty of the allegations against him and placed him on unpaid administrative leave.

However, I've noticed that previous attempts to include the allegations, with the exception of one sentence in the intro, have been deleted by an account with a bare IP address ( Sadly, as I expected, the IP address originates from Cambridge, Massachusetts, meaning that either Comaroff or someone close to him and loyal to him has been deleting the info, although it is authoritatively sourced, claiming it is "incorrect biography" or similar.

The article needs some reworking as it is, and if no one else adds the new info, I'll try to do it by the end of today at latest. I worry, though, that whoever's been vandalizing the article will keep doing it. Would you be able to help keep an eye on the article, maybe just for a week or two, and revert any edits aiming to whitewash his reputation? If you can't, could you refer me to someone else you think would be able to?

Many, many thanks! Scrawlspacer (talk) 09:34, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
