I apologise that this message is in English. ⧼Centralnotice-shared-help-translate⧽

We are having a problem with attackers taking over wiki accounts with privileged user rights (for example, admins, bureaucrats, oversighters, checkusers). It appears that this may be because of weak or reused passwords.

Community members are working along with members of multiple teams at the Wikimedia Foundation to address this issue.

In the meantime, we ask that everyone takes a look at the passwords they have chosen for their wiki accounts. If you know that you've chosen a weak password, or if you've chosen a password that you are using somewhere else, please change those passwords.

Select strong passwords – eight or more characters long, and containing letters, numbers, and punctuation. Joe Sutherland (arutelu) / MediaWiki message delivery (arutelu) 14. november 2016, kell 02:00 (EET)

Estonian municipalities in 1939[muuda lähteteksti]

Some articles, like Kuusalu vald (1939), include the population and area in hectares of the new municipality in year 1939. What is the source of those numbers? This publication Majandusteated ; 35 1940-09-03 has only population of August 15, 1940 but not the municipality areas, so that can not be the source. --Raksa123 (arutelu) 9. jaanuar 2017, kell 13:21 (EET)
