Sorry if this is not in the right place - I couldn't find the proper place, and had difficulties finding this one :) as mass murderer - thanks ! --Hsarrazin (tauk) 09:29, 29 Februar 2020 (UTC)

PS : Also, John Cena seems rather strange (probably hacked) to me, but I'm in no position to really evaluate it.

PPS : Please, who's admin here ? IPs seem to have had fun these last hours ? --Hsarrazin (tauk) 09:49, 29 Februar 2020 (UTC)

I've warned them, since the edits seem to have stopped and blocks are only to prevent damage. If they continue, I'll block them. Avicennasis (tauk) 11:54, 29 Februar 2020 (UTC)
thanks Avicennasis,
I undid dozens of those edits - similar pattern : famous people, date of death the day of the edit or about it, or change date of birth to be very recent...
as for John Cena, could you please check the article ? - I don't understand scottish, but the long text of song, under the presentation seems bizarre... :( - I only found the problem with death dates because I update wikidata with https://tools.wmflabs.org/pltools/recentdeaths/ :) — Precedin unsigned comment addit bi Hsarrazin (talk) 15:27, 3 Mairch 2020‎ (UTC)

Please (semi)-protect Template:MainPage/styles.cssEedit

(apologies for English) I've rewritten the Main Page to use TemplateStyles, which will make it work better on small screens and easier to edit in the future. However the new page uses Template:MainPage/styles.css which is not yet protected. Much of the rest of the Main Page is only semi-protected, so that should be enough here too. (I would have posted at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection, but that page doesn't appear to be used). The wub (tauk) 17:16, 6 Mey 2020 (UTC)

Annual contest Wikipedia Pages Wanting PhotosEedit

This is to invite you to join the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) campaign to help improve Wikipedia articles with photos and win prizes. The campaign starts today 1st July 2020 and closes 31st August 2020.

The campaign primarily aims at using images from Wikimedia Commons on Wikipedia articles that are lacking images. Participants will choose among Wikipedia pages without photo images, then add a suitable file from among the many thousands of photos in the Wikimedia Commons, especially those uploaded from thematic contests (Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc.) over the years.

Please visit the campaign page to learn more about the WPWP Campaign.

With kind regards,

Thank you,
