Lyndall Urwick quotesEdit

You have credited Urwick with quotes from at least one article written by Luther H. Gulick: "Science, values and public administration." Papers on the Science of Administration (1937) Institute of Public Administration. See Contents for the book. Noticed when copying one of your chosen quotes to a new article. Urwick wrote "Notes on the Theory of Organization", but not "Science, values and public administration". Also seems the title "The Function of Management" from the same book should be "The Function of Administration". Thanks for all you do. ELApro (talk) 19:03, 2 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How we will see unregistered usersEdit


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Social powerEdit

I would like to discuss Social power with you: If I have it correct:

I see two possible solutions. social Power is merged to Power on enWQ or a new Wikidata item for social power to support Social Power. One issue for me is my indef block to enWP which means I can't request anyone edit to do it was it would be proxy edit request on enWP. Do you have any preferences or suggestions. As you may be aware I'm on mission to minimize this set. -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 11:15, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks Djm-leighpark, it is now resolved on Wikidata and expanded a little more here. -- Mdd (talk) 13:27, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Alexander ChaseEdit

@Mdd: Per [1] I'm seeing a lot of hits for different people matching "Alexander Chase". I can see yours was probably editor here: [2] but I'm unsure if if that is a notable. And I'm unsure if the "Alexander Chase" mentioned here is the one you are referring to. I'm thinking about this. ... Hmmm . -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 13:54, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
