East Asian and Vietnamese regnal years[edit]

I wanted to suggest adding the regnal years of Chinese and Vietnamese Emperors to pages like "1890" which is already done at the Mandarin Chinese Wikipedia, for example at the page "w:zh:1890年" it reads "清光緒十六年;日本明治二十三年;越南成泰二年" , now the Japanese date is already on the English Wikipedia, but the Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese regnal years ain't. Another example would be "w:zh:1895年" which depicts it as "乙未年(羊年);清光緒二十一年;台灣民主國永清元年;韓國開國五百零四年;日本明治二十八年;越南成泰七年" Zanhe told me that you added quite some data to the current template on the English Wikipedia, so would it be possible to add Oriental Nianhao to here too?

Note that I did not check where the Mandarin Chinese Wikipedia took its data from and that certain nianhao expire as the Manchu Qing Dynasty was abolished in 1911, the Korean Empire was annexed in 1910, and the Nguyễn dynasty ended in 1945, so if it's possible the template should no longer depict these nianhao after these dates. --Donald Trung (talk) 10:05, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Zanhe found out that Template:Year in various calendars uses the Lua module Module:Year in various calendars, which loads Module:Japanese calendar, which in turns loads the calendar data from Module:Japanese calendar/data. This whole system can be replicated for Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese era names. Possibly this system already exists at the Mandarin Chinese Wikipedia. --Donald Trung (talk) 14:24, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – October 2019[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (September 2019).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a discussion, a new criterion for speedy category renaming was added: C2F: One eponymous article, which applies if the category contains only an eponymous article or media file, provided that the category has not otherwise been emptied shortly before the nomination. The default outcome is an upmerge to the parent categories.

Technical news

  • As previously noted, tighter password requirements for Administrators were put in place last year. Wikipedia should now alert you if your password is less than 10 characters long and thus too short.

Arbitration

Miscellaneous

  • The Community Tech team has been working on a system for temporarily watching pages, and welcomes feedback.
