@Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi: I've revision deleted (not suppressed) the edit summary. I'll probably need to reverse it if people have a problem with my action. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 10:40, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Thank you very much Callanecc. If they do, no worries I'll take it on the chin. It's embarassing more than anything. Now... think I've got a bit of 'revedelling' on the phone dictionary to do! Cheers, Muffled Pocketed 10:44, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

User Iistal[edit]

Hi Callanecc. I've tried to deal with Iistal's abuse of editing privileges many times. I don't have a problem with the unblock, but I wanted some clarification if you can provide it. Is the TBAN "broadly construed", meaning not editing about a living person even if the article itself is not about a living person? In the past that has been something Iistal has done, such as adding unsourced information about living children of a deceased celebrity. Thanks. Sundayclose (talk) 17:38, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Sundayclose, Iistal is banned from "making any edit which relates to a living person" so would include what you describe. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 08:06, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Jurabek Karimov[edit]

Hi Callanecc. A few days ago you deleted Karimov's page as he did not meet the guidelines for a page creation. If possible, can you please restore this page now as he meets the guidelines now after playing a Davis Cup tie.

Thanks Keroks (talk) 16:26, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Callanecc. 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)


Hello Callanecc ,I apologize about my behavior, but seeing cases of vandalism all the time in the page "List of countries by Military Strength Index", I had decided to ensure the page, meanwhile I want to thank you because you did the right thing protecting that page, I would like ask please Supervise the data from Credit Suisse, many Vandals have did confusion with other data of other page of less importance like Global fire page, Credit Suisse also makes the ranking every year (or perhaps every two years),Thank you!.--LuigiPortaro29 03:58, 24 September 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by LuigiPortaro29 (talkcontribs)

You were very lucky not to have been blocked given how long you were edit warring and that you have been warned about it before, LuigiPortaro29. Added to this, the edit you were reverting over would likely not be classed as vandalism, as they aren't an intentional effort (made in bad faith) to damage the encyclopedia. You made no effort to communicate with the IP you were reverting which is against the spirit of the collaborative nature of Wikipedia. If you find yourself in another edit war you need to stop reverting and try to discuss the matter with the other edit (either on the article's talk page or on the other person's talk page).
