All admins are fallible. Wheel wars are bad. I therefore follow a One Revert Rule for admin actions.

If you are an admin, and you disagree with an administrative action I have taken (e.g. block, protection, deletion), then please go ahead and reverse or modify it. You don't need to try to contact me first, although a notification afterwards would be polite. If I disagree with your change, then I will seek support from a third admin to reinstate mine.

If you are a non-admin reading this, and you take issue with an admin action of mine, I recommend that you raise it with me in the first instance, and take it to other admins only once you exhaust that avenue. If I have blocked you, you should probably mention my policy in any {{unblock}} request.

I hate having conversations that are split between two pages:
  • If I leave a message on your talk page, I will try to watch, so you are welcome to reply either there or here.
    • If you reply here, please link to my original comment to avoid any confusion.
  • If you leave a message for me here, I will usually reply here unless you request otherwise.
  • I may refactor split conversations to make threading clear.

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

You have been invited to a meetup and edit-a-thon at the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, March 9, 2014 from 11 am to 6 pm! This event is in collaboration with MOCA and the arts collective East of Borneo and aims to improve coverage of LA art since the 1980s. (Even if contemporary art isn't your thing, you're welcome to join too!) Please RSVP here if you're interested.

I hope to see you there! User:Calliopejen1 (talk)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Bovlb. 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)
