Recent page move[edit]

Hi, I have been working on pages with incorrect ref formatting, and the following page List of lists of exoplanets, shows in the history that you recently moved it. I'm not sure what is going on with that page but it has 2 See also sections, 2 External links sections and 2 References sections. I don't know if it was like that before you moved it, or if it happened during the move. I was going to fix the cite errors, but I'm afraid I might screw it up worse. What do you think? Thanks-- Isaidnoway (talk) 11:02, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

That weirded me out for a bit. The page wasn't how I remembered... but I think I have worked out what is going on and fixed it.
The issues seems to be with transcluding sections from the article Exoplanet, and this change, which removes the <section end=detection /> tag. This means that the entire or the remainder of the article was transcluded.
I have made this change to the Exoplanet article, which has fixed the problem.

Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)[edit]

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Full details are on the Meta page at m:Meetup/Manchester/36. It would be useful if you could say whether you're likely to be coming so we have a rough idea of how many to people expect and how large a table to reserve. Thanks, and hope to see you there.
