Categorization

Hi. Re: this edit and similar, I'm not really sure I understand the purpose of this category. I read Category:Maintained by Advancement department. Is this some team at the Wikimedia Foundation staking a claim to a bunch of pages on this wiki? Does this team really want all of these pages? Some of them are pretty old and probably no longer used or needed. Is this team now committing to keeping these wiki pages accurate and up-to-date? Should this team now be a point-of-contact for questions about these pages? If so, who specifically should be contacted? --MZMcBride (talk) 23:39, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

@MZMcBride: Thank you for checking. It is for tracking purposes and as the description mentions, is for active and historical maintenance. It is not meant to imply that they are actively maintaining it and does not impact maintenance practices. --GVarnum-WMF (talk) 23:51, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

While you've added yourself to the "flooder" user group, it looks like many of your edits are not being marked as bot edits, for what it's worth. Looking at https://wikimediafoundation.org/w/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&hidebots=0&limit=500 currently, I only see one edit with a little 'b'. --MZMcBride (talk) 23:48, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

@MZMcBride: Strange - I will take a look. Thank you for heads up. --GVarnum-WMF (talk) 23:51, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
