Extended confirmed protection
Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins
Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers
Hi Causa sui.
A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.
It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

Bloomington, Indiana protection
Hi there, Bloomington, Indiana has been move protected for over nine years now. It seems full protection was originally added in 2007 due to libel concerns, and then you reduced the protection level to move protection about a month later citing "enough protection". In that same spirit, and given that moves really never seemed to be an problem for this page in the first place, would you consider removing protection from this page?

- I've been inactive for some time and so I'm not too confident about this. I can't imagine a legitimate reason someone would want to move the article. You may want to try WP:RFPP? --causa sui (talk) 20:52, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Regarding the article for "Beast 1333" an American HipHop artist,
I attempted to create an article on a HipHop artist after he released an updated biography which happened to release his name
which was previously withheld on former articles, Unfortunately it was locked to prevent
vandalism and only administrators had access to the article. newly released news article regarding Beast 1333
has also surfaced on the internet,
along with upcoming tours with fellow American rappers:
KRS-One and Immortal technique (both of which Have existing Encyclopedia pages) The Rapper has also announced 2 upcoming albums with collaborations
with well known HipHop artists.
