Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge[edit]

Hi there. I've started a new initiative, the Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. It's a long term goal to bring about 10,000 article improvements to the UK and Ireland. Through two contests involving just six or seven weeks of editing so far we've produced over 1500 improvements. Long term if we have more people chipping it and adding articles they've edited independently as well from all areas of the UK then reaching that target is all possible. I think it would be an amazing achievement to see 10,000 article improvements by editors chipping in. If you support this and think you might want to contribute towards this long term please sign up in the Contributors section. No obligations, just post work on anything you feel like whenever you want, though try to avoid basic stubs if possible as we're trying to reduce the overall stub count and improve general comprehension and quality. Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:50, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Lake Urana Nature Reserve, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Red gum (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.

A user is trying to change the placement of expand language templates without consensus[edit]

Dear Calliopejen1, another user, User:Ettrig has been single handedly trying to relocate the expand language templates to the bottom of pages across multiple pages against the consensus[1], having already begun the process, a few examples shown here[2][3][4][5], and is continuously trying to force this new guideline onto the howto template[6] which is transcluded on the documentation on all the expand templates. I have suggested that things should remain at status quo ante until a proper discussion is started, but he continues to revert to his version, I am contacting you because you have the most experience with past discussions and conflicts related to these templates and could perhaps mediate this issue. — Abrahamic Faiths (talk) 17:50, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Calliopejen1. 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)

Hi. You helped out with my Environmental Law class a couple of years ago where I had a wikipedia assignment. It was very helpful for the students to get feedback from members of the community. I'm wondering if you'd be willing to do the same this semester? As a reminder, it is a Master's level course in Environmental Science at the University of San Francisco and the students (who are mainly working professionals), in teams of two, will be asked to write a new article. The articles would start in their sandboxes early to mid November and then go live by the third week in November. Any help is greatly appreciated and just having them know that there are wikipedians (and lawyers) out there that will be looking at their work adds a level of meaning to their work. Let me know and, in any case, thanks for your help in the past. Aarf613 (talk) 17:32, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
