Stephen Curry verses[edit]

Hello. This is Nino Marakot. For your information, I updated the bible verse of Stephen Curry on 1 Corinthians 13:8 and Philippians 4:13. I updated it with my own New Testament Bible. Thank you for understanding, and Have a Good day! - Nino Marakot (talk) 1:31, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Recent ban/mass deletion[edit]

I was hoping you could help me understand what happened with a recent block/mass deletion that you did. I see that you blocked Baseball1948 for being a WP:SOCK account for Basketballfan12. My issue is that you then proceeded to delete all the articles that he had created based on WP:G5. Looking at the block log, he was blocked on 8/5 for a period of 1 week. The articles you deleted (at least the ones I watch that you did) Troy Neiman, Tyler Herron, Ryan Sherriff, Rhett Wiseman, Joey Wagman, Scott Burcham and Alex Katz (baseball) were all created (as far as I am aware) after the WBC roster was announced on August 26 [1]. His new account did not make any edits until 8/12 when his block expired. This would mean he created the articles 2 weeks after his ban expired, which by my understanding is not criteria for speedy deletion under WP:G5. Since they are on a WBC roster they automatically qualify as notable under WP:NBASE, and the articles could now be recreated (and I just dont feel like doing that right now :-D). I am not saying he shouldn't be blocked because it definitely was a WP:SOCK account, however I do not believe the deletions were appropriate. Thanks so much! - GalatzTalk 13:48, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

@Galatz: The user is under a topic ban for creating sports-related articles, which is the ban violation for which I had deleted the articles. However, you make a legitimate point for retaining the above articles, so I will restore them. They can go through normal AfD process if anyone questions their notability.—Bagumba (talk) 08:42, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, it was the topic ban I was missing. I appreciate you putting them back. - GalatzTalk 13:51, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Sorry to bring this topic back up again, I just noticed the following pages that were also deleted. Would you be able to undelete them as well or should I recreate.

Thanks - GalatzTalk 01:16, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

@Galatz: Done.—Bagumba (talk) 07:34, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Policy on IP "socks?"[edit]

Is there any kind of policy about the same user using different IP's to revert edits? Just curious, I've been going around and around with four different IPs who I am pretty sure are the same person at the Tim Cone article. Just trying to come to a reasonable format for the infobox. Rikster2 (talk) 13:03, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Its usually not interpreted as socking unless there is obvious intent to deceive. In this case, it's conceivable that their ISP is giving them a new IP address every time, not that they are intentionally changing their IP to avoid detection. I'd suggest just posting this on WikiProject Basketball and getting others input, and leave a note on the article talk page as well.—Bagumba (talk) 08:40, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Zack Novak[edit]

Hey, I noticed that Zack Novak's page had been recreated after it was deleted in 2011. Is it possible you could undelete the original/move to a subpage of mine to see if there is anything worth adding to the article? ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 14:57, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

@Editorofthewiki: I see that the edit history goes back to 2009, so I presume this was resolved already? Cheers.—Bagumba (talk) 02:14, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Bagumba. 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. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Little help?[edit]

I tried to move "Jamar Anthony Diggs" to Jamar Figgs and my finger slipped, resulting in Jamar AnthonyDiggs. Can jou help complete the move to "Jamar Diggs?" Thank you. Rikster2 (talk) 04:55, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Done. FYI, I'm a lot less active these days.—Bagumba (talk) 18:14, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. Hope everything is well with you. Rikster2 (talk) 12:32, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
