Unprotection or pending changes protection of Bad Girls Club (season 5) [ edit ]

Would it be possible for you to unprotect or switch the protection level on this page to pending changes? It's been very infrequently edited in the past few years and a downgrade would probably be appropriate (you semi-protected the page indefinitely back in 2012).

@Chess: I'm not so sure about this; all the other season articles that I checked are semi-protected, and I'm seeing lots of sockpuppet activity, mostly around 2016 but some as recently as May this year.

Regarding United Aviation Services [ edit ]

Hi Mr. Stradivarius, i created a Wikipedia page (United Aviation Services) a few days back. User:1292simon tried to delete the article by speedy tag and You declined this speedy. After this 1292simon moved the article into the draft. He claims COI without any solid evidences. I have created the article from neutral point of viw. And i do not have any connection with the company or its employee. Please look in to this and help. XpediaF1 (talk) 06:11, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

I have taken a look at the sources, and it does not look like the sourcing is strong enough yet to satisfy Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies). If there are better references out there, then I suggest adding them to the article and then submitting the draft for review. If there aren't better references available, then it is probably too soon for the company to have a Wikipedia article. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 08:04, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Module:DYK checklist [ edit ]

Mr. Stradivarius, I made a minor change to this module's main routine: the "hookcited" parameter was listed twice, while "hookinterest" wasn't listed at all, so I listed them once each, along with the bulk of the other parameters. (I'm not entirely sure why "status" or "qpq" aren't included in the list, but assume you had your reasons.) If there is a problem with my change, please correct or revert—and be sure to let me know why, so I don't make a similar problematic edit in future. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 06:41, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

@BlueMoonset: Thanks for the fix. I had a quick look, and the original template code that I converted had the following check:
<!-- Template body goes here -->
|Review not started}} 
In this check there is also no "hookinterest" parameter, while the "hookcited" parameter is included twice. So it looks like I just attempted to convert the template to Lua with bug-for-bug compatibility. Feel free to add other parameters to the check in the module if it looks like they would be useful.

Disable rollback links in watchlist and recent changes [ edit ]

Hello. If you could please confirm if I'm doing this correctly.

I recently added a script at User:DB1729/common.css to hide the rollback buttons in my watchlist. (I had an accidental revert a few days ago)

I wish to do the same thing for Special:RecentChanges.

Found my way to the page User:Mr. Stradivarius/gadgets/ConfirmRollback, and from what I gather, It looks like I need to paste the following: ,

        'User:Mr. Stradivarius/gadgets/ConfirmRollback.js'
        // Linkback: [[User:Mr. Stradivarius/gadgets/ConfirmRollback.js]]



into User:DB1729/common.js.

Is this correct? Will the other code I currently have installed at User:DB1729/common.css cause any problems? Just wanting to be sure.

Thanks. --DB1729 (talk) 02:09, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

What is this?
