  • It looks like this user wiped out all job details from jobs that have moved to campus interviews in the Ancient category (and possibly elsewhere - I neglected to keep a window up as I typed this so that I can check). Rather than undo all of those by hand, I thought I had better post on that user's wall to ask what's up and to check with you in case you know about this already.

    • Thanks for noting this. It's very possibly an accident and the user did not know what he/she was doing (this happens more frequently than we would like). If you can, restore the information you have noted missing. I'll see what I can do as well.

    • On second thought, looking at the edits, they do seem to be intentional. I suspect the user may have thought s/he is cleaning up the page? Your query seems appropriate. I also think it would be appropriate to restore the information from the ads that was erased if you feel strongly about it. The user did not seem to delete information about interviews, etc. however.

  • Hi AFII,

    I'm the fourth candidate in the Yale 20th C. China search, and I've tried to keep my name from being publicly posted on the internet because I am still fully employed elsewhere. Because the Yale history department is sensitive to these matters, they have also agreed not to post the names on their website.

    I've already deleted my name from the wiki page three times, and I was hoping you could simply post a message yourself - as moderator - asking others not to post my name?

    Thanks very much!

    • Done; in future, you can use the 'edit summary' box (to the right of the editing pane) to leave a note about why you're making the edit (e.g. 'removing personal information).  It's a useful flag to moderators that the deletion/edit isn't just a malicious removal of information & gives us a heads up to keep an eye on the page.

    • Thanks a lot! I appreciate it very much. Also, yes, I had a hard time figuring out the best way to communicate to you, so I just went with this wall option.
