Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Elvedin Škrijelj[edit]

Dear Causa sui: A couple of years ago you salted the title for the above article because the athlete was not notable, but now the experts at Wikiproject Football say that he is, so would you mind unsalting the title? Here is the discussion: Delong (talk) 22:46, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Is there really nothing more to the article than this? The linked draft still does not say anything about the notability of the subject. --causa sui (talk) 23:45, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
I, myself, don't know anything about football, but the Wikiproject Football people (as you can see from the link I added above) believe that he passes WP:NSPORT. If you think that they are wrong, could you please explain to them why? Maybe they can fix the draft so that the notability is more obvious, whereas I can't tell one team or league from another. —Anne Delong (talk) 00:02, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
No thanks -- I'm not that invested. :) I did unprotect the article, but stated my reservations for posterity. causa sui (talk) 22:23, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Biography feedback requested[edit]

Your input is requested about an RFC regarding Donald Trump. Here is a link directly to that RFC. The lead of that biography currently says, "Many of his statements in interviews, on Twitter, and at campaign rallies have been controversial." The RFC proposes to insert the words "or false" at the end of that sentence. Thank you in advance for participating. If you have the time, there is a second RFC at that talk page which proposes to instead add the words "or hyperbolic".Anythingyouwant (talk) 00:53, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Causa sui. 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)
