RFA2024 update: phase I concluded, phase II begins[edit]

Hi there! Phase I of the Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/2024 review has concluded, with several impactful changes gaining community consensus and proceeding to various stages of implementation. Some proposals will be implemented in full outright; others will be discussed at phase II before being implemented; and still others will proceed on a trial basis before being brought to phase II. The following proposals have gained consensus:

See the project page for a full list of proposals and their outcomes. A huge thank-you to everyone who has participated so far :) looking forward to seeing lots of hard work become a reality in phase II. theleekycauldron (talk), via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 08:09, 5 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

In the news[edit]

Where can I find the archives of former In the news entries from January 2023? I'm preparing for an exam. I find it useful. (talk) 15:03, 5 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I don't think there is a particular page; an incomplete archives for 2008-2011 can be found at Wikipedia:ITN archives. Archives of nominations can be found at Wikipedia:In the news/Candidates/Archives. Best, SpencerT•C 03:41, 6 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Today's TFA, Felix M. Warburg House, was written by Vami_IV and Epicgenius, introduced: "This article is about another of the great houses that once lined Fifth Avenue in New York. Specifically, this is the mansion of Felix M. Warburg, a Jewish financier who ignored fears of anti-Semitic reprisal to his decided to build himself a big Gothic manor in the middle of New York City. Although the Warburgs no longer remain, their legacy does: the museum is now the home of the Jewish Museum (Manhattan) and the building largely survives as they left it. It's a beautiful building and I hope you will all enjoy it."! - in memory -- Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:56, 10 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

IKEA Foundation request[edit]

Hi Spencer, I'm Altaf with the IKEA Foundation. I had a request for the article and was wondering if you might be willing to take a look since you had reviewed another one of my requests in the past. I'd really appreciate it! AMfromIKEA (talk) 07:01, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
