Old discussions are moved to User talk:Crazytales/Archive9 sporadically. I'll respond here to comments left here, to avoid fragmenting discussions, but I usually remember to place {{Talkback}} at your talk page. I also might edit/combine/split headings for purposes of readability or organisation.

Discussion involving transgender issues[edit]

You may want to be aware of and possibly join in: Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)/Archive 121#MOS:IDENTITY clarification. Skyerise (talk) 06:17, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Oh gods, more Caitlyn Jenner stuff. As if it weren't enough that I am going to participate in an Ask a Trans Person Day event at my uni on monday.... (Note: This is just my overwhelmedness at trans issues being in the media so much now, not directed at you. Thanks for bringing this rfc to my attentions. :) ) --Alison (Crazytales) (talkedits) 14:01, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, no way we need to retrograde MOS:IDENTITY! Skyerise (talk) 14:05, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

MOS:IDENTITY is being revisited: How should Wikipedia refer to transgender individuals before and after their transition?[edit]

You are being contacted because you contributed to a recent discussion of MOS:IDENTITY that closed with the recommendation that Wikipedia's policy on transgender individuals be revisited.

Two threads have been opened at the Village Pump:Policy. The first addresses how the Manual of Style should instruct editors to refer to transgender people in articles about themselves (which name, which pronoun, etc.). The second addresses how to instruct editors to refer to transgender people when they are mentioned in passing in other articles. Your participation is welcome.

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.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Crazytales. 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. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
