Hi Terasail, was looking at the last opening paragraph on QAnon. I know that Wikipedia is WP:NOTCENSORED, however I feel like having this in the opening: "Followers had also migrated to dedicated message boards such as EndChan and 8chan (now rebranded as "8kun"), where they organized to wage information warfare to influence the 2020 United States presidential election" will only send more people to kooky forums like 8kun. What do you think about excluding that from the opening paragraph? Thanks. Sxologist (talk) 02:59, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

@Sxologist: As long as you have a WP:RELIABLE source for your information, just either make note on the talk page and ask for feedback or just make the edit (WP:BOLD). I have no personal opinion or knowledge on what that article should contain. Thanks, Terasail[Talk] 09:10, 6 November 2020 (UTC)

Mass message sender granted[edit]

Wikipedia mass messenger.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "massmessage-sender" user right, allowing you to send messages to multiple users at once. A few important things to note:

  • Messages should only be sent to groups of users who are likely to be interested in the topic.
  • For regular mailings such as those for WikiProjects, localized events, or newsletters, users should be informed of how they can unsubscribe from future mailings.
  • The mass messaging tool should never be used for canvassing with the intention of influencing the outcome of discussions.

For more information, refer to the guidance for use. If you do not want mass message sender rights anymore, just let me or any other administrator know and we will remove it. Thank you and happy editing! Wug·a·po·des 03:48, 8 November 2020 (UTC)

The Queen's Gambit Title Card[edit]

You might want to know that I have updated the copyright status on one of your files ( from fair use to public domain. The title card depicted in the file is believed to be too simple for copyright protection in the United States (where this movie was believed to be published and where Netflix is based). This decision was based on precedent found on Wikimedia Commons such as,, and Let me know if you have any questions. ShyAlpaca482 (talk) 00:33, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Rollback granted[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Terasail. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:Administrators' guide/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! ~Swarm~ {sting} 02:21, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
