Hummus[edit]

I'm going to respond to your message at Talk:Hummus, but in the meantime I recommend that you self-revert your last edit to the article.

Hummus, like all articles related to the Arab–Israeli conflict, broadly construed, is subject to a one-revert restriction. (See WP:1RR and WP:ARBPIA#General 1RR restriction for additional information.) Your last edit to the article was your second revert in less than 24 hours. If you don't self-revert, you may be blocked. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 18:36, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

January 2011[edit]

To enforce an arbitration decision, you have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for Violation of the WP:ARBPIA-related 1RR restriction on the page Hummus. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing arbitration enforcement blocks and follow the instructions there to appeal your block.

Notice to administrators: In a March 2010 decision, the Committee held that "Administrators are prohibited from reversing or overturning (explicitly or in substance) any action taken by another administrator pursuant to the terms of an active arbitration remedy, and explicitly noted as being taken to enforce said remedy, except: (a) with the written authorization of the Committee, or (b) following a clear, substantial, and active consensus of uninvolved editors at a community discussion noticeboard (such as WP:AN or WP:ANI). If consensus in such discussions is hard to judge or unclear, the parties should submit a request for clarification on the proper page. Any administrator that overturns an enforcement action outside of these circumstances shall be subject to appropriate sanctions, up to and including desysopping, at the discretion of the Committee."

Further information[edit]

As a result of an arbitration case, the Arbitration Committee has acknowledged long-term and persistent problems in the editing of articles related to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, broadly understood. As a result, the Committee has enacted broad editing restrictions, described here and below.

  • Any uninvolved administrator may, on his or her own discretion, impose sanctions on any editor working in the area of conflict if, despite being warned, that editor repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, any expected standards of behavior, or any normal editorial process.
  • The sanctions imposed may include blocks of up to one year in length; bans from editing any page or set of pages within the area of conflict; bans on any editing related to the topic or its closely related topics; restrictions on reverts or other specified behaviors; or any other measures which the imposing administrator believes are reasonably necessary to ensure the smooth functioning of the project.
  • Prior to any sanctions being imposed, the editor in question shall be given a warning with a link to this decision; and, where appropriate, should be counseled on specific steps that he or she can take to improve his or her editing in accordance with relevant policies and guidelines.
  • Discretionary sanctions imposed under the provisions of this decision may be appealed to the imposing administrator, the appropriate administrators' noticeboard (currently WP:AE), or the Committee.

These editing restrictions may be applied to any editor for cause, provided the editor has been previously informed of the case. This message is to so inform you. This message does not necessarily mean that your current editing has been deemed a problem; this is a template message crafted to make it easier to notify any user who has edited the topic of the existence of these sanctions.

Generally, the next step, if an administrator feels your conduct on pages in this topic area is disruptive, would be a warning, to be followed by the imposition of sanctions (although in cases of serious disruption, the warning may be omitted). Hopefully no such action will be necessary.

This notice is only effective if given by an uninvolved administrator and logged here. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 22:52, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

To enforce an arbitration decision, you have been blocked from editing for a period of 1 week for your second violation of the 1RR restriction affecting all articles related WP:ARBPIA inside three days on the page Hummus. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing arbitration enforcement blocks and follow the instructions there to appeal your block.

If consensus in such discussions is hard to judge or unclear, the parties should submit a request for clarification on the proper page. Any administrator that overturns an enforcement action outside of these circumstances shall be subject to appropriate sanctions, up to and including desysopping, at the discretion of the Committee."

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Request reason:

I didn't revise twice. I edited once and revised once. My first edit was not a revision. I'm only trying to make Wikipedia NPOV, but being in a minority, I don't have an army of revisers like the Palestine crowd has. I'm bound to make more edits, because if I won't, no one else will.

Decline reason:

Procedural decline. AE blocks aren't subject to review by individual administrators. Use {{subst:arbitration enforcement appeal}} and I'll copy it to WP:AE if you want. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 18:41, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

Arbitration enforcement action appeal by TFighterPilot[edit]

Procedural notes: The rules governing arbitration enforcement appeals are found in this 2010 ArbCom motion. According to that motion, a "clear, substantial, and active consensus of uninvolved editors" is required to overturn an arbitration enforcement action.

To help determine any such consensus, involved editors may make brief statements in separate sections but should not edit the section for discussion among uninvolved editors. Editors are normally considered involved if they are in a current dispute with the sanctioning or sanctioned editor, or have taken part in disputes (if any) related to the contested enforcement action. Administrators having taken administrative actions are not normally considered involved for this reason alone (see WP:UNINVOLVED).

Notification of that administrator 
The appealing editor is asked to notify the administrator who made the enforcement action of this appeal, and then to replace this text with a diff of that notification. The appeal may not be processed otherwise. If a block is appealed, the editor moving the appeal to this board should make the notification.

Result of the appeal by TFighterPilot[edit]

This section is to be edited only by uninvolved administrators. Comments by others will be moved to the sections above.
  • I've copied this to WP:AE. If you have anything else to add, leave it here and I'll copy it over (if I'm offline, use {{adminhelp}} to attract attention). It's absolutely nothing personal, but I'm opposing the appeal. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 19:32, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Merge of Amka and Amqa[edit]

There is a currently ongoing merger proposal discussion regarding merging of Amqa article into the previously created article of Amka. According to sources and geographic location we are speaking of different prenounsation of the same place name Amka/Amqa/Amca, the same as Acre/Acco/Akko and Tiberias/Tabariya/Tveriya. As done with other towns/cities, all time periods are listed in one article.Greyshark09 (talk) 18:46, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Ayin pronunciation[edit]

Thank you for uploading your recorded version of a voiced pharyngeal fricative found over here. One of the things I learned about this letter, over time, is that there are many variants all over the place even within the same dialect. I feel your first version was better than your second version except for the obvious unintended glottal stop. Your second version doesn't have a glottal stop in it but I fear your pronunciation of the ayin is not as good. Could you give it another shot, I was hoping wikipedia could have a good example that would be closer to perhaps Yehoshua Sofer's version found over here. The best I can muster up is something like omedyashar's version over here but Yemenites have a very hard time understanding my Ayin in general so I don't think a recorded version of my own work would fly very well. --Thelazyleo (talk) 08:42, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

A guy called Mahmud Masri said my recording is ok. I'd suppose I can take his word for it, can't I? I don't have advanced recording equipment, only a cheap headset's microphone, so delicate sounds like this one would never sound perfect. TFighterPilot (talk) 23:02, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Israeli Jews[edit]

Hello :-) I opened a discussion on the Israeli Jews page about creating a new selection of photos. I saw you showed interest in it in the past so if you would like to participate you are welcome! I am trying to promote an equal representation between Ashkenazi a Mizrahi Jews (right now only 4 out of 21 are Mizrahis) and less politicians in it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.3.21.223 (talk) 18:07, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
