Question for administrator[edit]

Do I have a "Kick Me" sign on my back?

This[1][2][3][4][5] feels like I am being harassed. X1\ (talk) 01:24, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

This doesn't appear to be a request for administrative action, so I'm closing the helpme template. If there's a specific administrative task that you need to be performed in relation to the above edits, please feel free to reinstate the request with more details.

Is there a list of what is considered an "administrative task"? X1\ (talk) 22:16, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Administrators/Tools lists the various additional things that administrators can do. Beyond that, we're just like every other editor here. Yunshui  23:07, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections[edit]

Guten Abend,

Do you understand that at Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, per page restrictions outlined in Template:Editnotices/Page/Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, you are not allowed to reinstate any edits that have been challenged? I have undone this and this revert of yours, which reinstated challenged [6][7] edits without talk page consensus and included violations of biographies of living persons policy either by citing court documents or stating Adam Schiff's unproved allegation in Wikipedia's voice.

Also, in this edit you reinstated challenged edits saying "I don't see consensus", when in fact, per page restrictions, you need consensus to reinstate challenged edits (see also WP:ONUS). Politrukki (talk) 20:45, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

@Politrukki: Why is this location the only place Template:Editnotices/Page/Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections is used? Not used at Talk:Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, for example? The creator of that Template also seemed to have been having some issues at the time of creation.
If you think that Template is valid, why did you put on my Talk page, and not at Talk:Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections?
Why are you writing in German on English wp?
PS, you have a curious Username: have you seen fi:Politrukki (redirects to "Komissaari (puna-armeija)"; En redirect of Commissar)? X1\ (talk) 20:57, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Normally there is no reason to link to an edit notice. Coffee logged the page restrictions and added proper editnotices to the article and talk page, but they apparently forgot to add an explanatory talk page notice, which is shown when someone is reading the talk page.
If you click an edit link at Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, you'll be reading instructions transcluded from Template:Editnotices/Page/Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, and if you edit the talk page, you'll see longer instructions transcluded from Template:Editnotices/Page/Talk:Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.
If you have read WP:AC/DS#sanctions.page, you have already noticed that an editor may be sanctioned if they (a) are aware of DS and (b) violate page restrictions outlined in an editnotice. In other words, the talk page notice is not mandatory. I have asked Coffee to add a talk page notice to the talk page, but they have not responded.
"If you think that Template is valid, why did you put on my Talk page, and not at Talk:Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections?" – The talk page already has an editnotice. Even though any editor could also add {{American politics AE}} to the talk page as a notice, in order to avoid wikilawyering, it's better to leave it to an uninvolved administrator, and preferably to the administrator who imposed the restrictions.
"Why are you writing in German on English wp?" – For the same reason you did here?
"have you seen ..." – I have now. Interesting. And surprising. Thanks. Politrukki (talk) 06:35, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
Der Kommissar (see above), I see User:Coffee has been blocked / retired; in April. X1\ (talk) 20:00, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
Unless there is follow-up, I will assume this string is moot, and ignore. X1\ (talk) 20:01, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
