Repurposing of redirect page Great Darkness[edit]

Check out the most recent edit (from 9 months ago): Great Darkness: Difference between revisions

There only seems to be about one article using it: Battle_of_the_Pelennor_Fields#Background, and that's (as originally intended) about LoTR - not mid-century Quebec politics. One could change that sole use to point into Treebeard#Literature, thus orphaning the redirect entirely. (In fact, one could create a sub-subsection or anchor about Great Darkness in the Treebeard article, so that any link in was more relevant...).

But since you merged the original content into Treebeard in Sep'10, I thought I'd bring this radical repurposing to your attention in case you had a better idea. I suspect that the issues are above my paygrade.

Hope this helps,

Thank you for notice. I think I'm going to revert this change of target and place a hatnote at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields article. De728631 (talk) 18:39, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, De728631. 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)


Wondered if you could comment at Talk:ODAS#Duplicate links, thanks. Mathglot (talk) 18:05, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
