Help for blocking lt.wikipedia.org[edit]

Good evening, Mr. Adam Bishop, I wanted to ask you to help me in trouble Lithuanian Wikipedia. Behold, I got a little sick Tourette's syndrome, and sometimes I get angry and not in control of the words, and it happened there. I wrote a considerable criticism, and I told them back, "Bounce," and I was banned for 1 day. But then I was very curious, and I asked for all the details on Wikipedia, etc. And took me away, and to extend the blocking 8 months in. Then I began creating clones. But I continue to "excellent" edited by Wikipedia, in the articles, but then again I saw blocking the message, and angry. And I created the clone, created before 11, but anyway I edited, created 2 articles. (Because then I paid them not to develop). And then extend the blocking period of 3 years. And I very much want there the Wikipedia edited, so in every possible way I wanted to unlock. And I wrote in the e-mail, and everywhere, and tried to IRC, but not switched on, so in one word remained this situation. Then I created the English Wikipedia, and everything went well for me, I was invited to the "Teahouse" be paradise! And here all the other people do not like the Lithuanians, they are stubborn and wrong. And here I created, I do not remember any of their regions, many villages, perhaps 5 villages, 2 rivers, 1 lake. Maybe you can help in any way? Plus I created yesterday again Lithuanian Wikipedia account, I wrote what I do is, I opened my heart, and today still went and blocked User: Homo ergaster. And I do not know what to do. And I want and there and then edit the articles, maybe here I will become administrator ever. So HERE is hopeful. Thank you. P.S if you look at those who blocked me: Homo ergaster, and my account Lukas_GamingLT Smile.svg --L.ukas lt 13 --Talk 15:56, 9 January 2016 (UTC)Lukaslt13

Disambiguation link notification for January 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Raoul of Merencourt, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Blanche of Navarre (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Catholic-Hierarchy.org[edit]

Hello. I noticed that you have edited a number of articles on Catholicism. A discussion is taking place as to whether the website Catholic-Hierarchy.org is a reliable source that can be utilized on Wikipedia or whether all references and information derived from it should be deleted. This topic is currently being discussed at the Reliable Sources Noticeboard [1]. As the website's removal as a reference will affect several thousand Wikipedia articles, I believe that the broadest range of opinions should be obtained before action is taken. Please contribute if interested.Patapsco913 (talk) 22:07, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Metal (music)[edit]

Hello Adam Bishop,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Metal (music) for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Vinod 03:28, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Adam Bishop. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Adam Bishop.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:46, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Trollee[edit]

Re special:diff/574897779 I found a reference listing Nissae Isen (just made a page!) as a principal cast member and she also got an award nomination for MtK so I think you're probably right.

If we can't find any online sources confirming this then I think we could cite an episode directly, in which case I'd need to figure out the first episode Trolee appeared in. Although I'm limiting to checking whatever's either Treehouse On Demand or else checking upcoming showtimes.

There isn't a cast section for MtK and since there's a Canada/UK version, putting together a table would probably help let us know where we're missing actors. Ranze (talk) 07:07, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

March Madness 2017[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

For the Milhist co-ordinators. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 07:23, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

House of Ibelin[edit]

Hello Adam
Thanks for your edit here the other day; I think the original hatnote was actually referring to a similar-sounding place in the Galilee, rather than the town now at the site where Ibelin was. It's pretty academic now, though, and it isn't necessary on a genealogy page (I've added the previous link to the dab page already) so I've removed it altogether.
I gather from your comments you added the family tree; is it worth putting lines in (like here)? I don't know if that'd make it easier or harder to read. What do you think? Moonraker12 (talk) 17:54, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for your note: I'm not sure what's best to do, so I have left some suggestions on the talk page there. if there are no objections I'll have a go at it in a while. Regards, Moonraker12 (talk) 23:15, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

About vandalism on the article of Presidential Elections in Iran 2017[edit]

Good evening Sir, I allow myself to report a persistent vandalism actions about a non user called Pahlevun (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log) on the article about Iranian Presidential elections that censures informations about declared candidates without real reasons and even the information is verifiable and official.

This person has been warned and each time allows itself to delete only one declared candidate "Dr Hossein Homayoun Fard" who's official candidate at this election and who officially is registered under official institutions of Iran. So he has the right to be included as the other candidates on this article and "Pahlevun" erases his name when the article is updated.

Can it be possible to block his capacity of intervention on this article which is an information one and not a political tribune ?

I'm new on Wikipedia and I have many things to learn. And forgive my errors in english and also my errors in the form of writing also. (I'm not even english speaker at the base). Thanks as advance. Best regards. --TheSimorgh (talk) 12:21, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

@TheSimorgh: You have not provided a single reliable source that says he has done so. Verifiability is the Wikipedia policy you are ignoring and I will revert you every time you add it with no proper source. Stop labling me and edit warring. Pahlevun (talk) 13:01, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Pahlevun (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log) you're censuring public information about an election. Are you working for any public administration in relation with the elections to decide who must be in the list of candidates or not ? Are you up the Iranian Government who received Dr Homayoun Fard candidature by the way of Iranian Embassy in France in all respectful and legal forms ? You don't have any wright to censure information. Your interventions are censure and vandalism not more not less. I'll make changes each time you'll change it too. And contrary to what you're talking information is verifiable by the links I've put. First, the public anounce by the website of Ayyaran Group. Second, I give the link of Iranian Embassy in France that can confirm that Dr Hossein Homayoun Fard is officially candidate. So if you're more important source than Iranian Government I'm very curious. You're actions are violating ethics of Wikipedia. My informations are linked with official sources. If it disturbs you that shows that you're doing politic filtering and it's vandalism. I won't stop warning you and won't stop modify the article each time you'll modify it. I have time and you'll be tired before me count on it. I'm for freedom of expression and freedom of information what you're not and sensibly !. --TheSimorgh (talk) 13:25, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Latin help[edit]

Adam, if you have a moment could you check my translation/interpretation of the following passage? It is from document no. 50 in this collection.

Hoc autem donum facimus ob remissionem peccatorum nostrorum, videlicet mei Petri Assur et coniugis mee Elo, seu pro anima comitis Ermengaudi, qui in castro Gerb mortuus est, et pro anima filii sui, qui sepultus est Celsone, et uxoris sue Marie, et istius pueri Ermengaudi minoris, quatenus Orbis Factor tribuat ei victoriam super paganos.

which I translate as

This gift we make for the remission of our sins, namely Pedro Ansúrez and my wife Elo, and for the soul of Count Ermengol, who died in the castle of Gerb, and for the soul of his son, who is buried in Solsona, and his wife María, and this boy Ermengol the younger, that the Maker of the World give him victory over the pagans.

The main reason I am asking is that I want to be sure that there are three generations here: Ermengol who died in Gerb, his unnamed son, his unnamed sons's wife María and Ermengol the younger (who would be unnamed and María's son). It seems odd that they would not name the intervening son (who would be Ermengol V of Urgell, husband of María, Pedro's daughter). Is it saying that Count Ermengol had a son buried in Solsona and a daughter-in-law named María? Thanks, Srnec (talk) 23:45, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi Srnec, yes, that's correct - just some grammatical points, "quatenus" is a medieval way of saying "ut", so they're making the gift "so that the Maker of the World may grant" etc. "Istius pueri" must mean "their son", with the relationship that you mentioned (i.e. Ermengol the younger is the son of Maria and the unnamed son of Ermengol the elder). "Iste" is a weird word to use there though.It could also mean that Ermengol the younger is Maria's son from another man, or more likely since they share a name, Ermengol the elder's son's son with another woman...but I might be reading too much into it! It is as you say, three generations. Adam Bishop (talk) 01:26, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I was wondering what work "istius" was doing. I found it odd that the charter avoids naming Ermengol V, although it twice mentions Ermengol IV and his death at Gerb and has no problem naming María or Ermengol VI. Maybe Pedro did not like his son-in-law. Srnec (talk) 23:49, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
