Help needed[edit]

Hi decltype, I have uploaded a logo here , I am not sure if i have done it right, can you please check with Deeyah, for all those technicalities. I asked her if I am allowed to use the logo on the related article and this was ok by here. Can you plase help. Regards--Jogibaba (talk) 17:50, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello again, sorry for the very delayed response. Because the logo only consists of text, it isn't protected by copyright. That means that from a copyright perspective, the logo can be freely used in any Wikipedia page. I have modified the description to reflect this. Regards, decltype (contact) 11:49, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Decltype, you are always there when I need help. Is this image free to use on other wiki sections like Norwegian wiki etc. Regards--Jogibaba (talk) 23:57, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Today there is a notice to move the file to Common, I don't want to make mess, so I did not touch it, I hope you can sort that . Regards --Jogibaba (talk) 16:07, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi, yes the file can be used on other wikis as well, and I see no particular reason why it couldn't be moved to Commons if you intend to use the file on other projects. Regards, decltype (contact) 09:57, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi, I have tried this file on other wiki projects and it does not work anywhere other than English Wiki, because this is not moved in common. I think you havn't checked this notice put on file's page " Notice: This file was flagged by a bot (User:ContinuityBot) for transfer, so also remember to check if file is usable before moving it to Commons. I don't know how to move the file to common, can you please do that.Regards--Jogibaba (talk) 14:40, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done the logo should now be usable on all projects (Using [[File:Fuuse-logo.png]]). Regards, decltype (contact) 10:03, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

(Mmkstarr (talk) 23:08, 19 August 2014 (UTC)) Explanation: It's a bug. It's a computer virus. Get the fuck rid of it. Some wind from Iceland literally acoustovibrationally hacked into some server and the nets isn't shuffling itself for the users indulging this area.

Problem with Spanish Wikipedia[edit]

Hi decltype, I have a huge problem and I hoped you can help me. Here's the deal, I have an account on the Spanish Wikipedia that's blocked, but for unfair reason.

I have access to internet conection by using an USB Modem, and a few months ago this device would access to various accounts and another people's IP addresses, and people could use my IP address too. An account called NebrazkaBIEBER (you can access to this link and see she's clearly blocked also in the Spanish Wikipedia) used my IP address and got me blocked by the user Taichi who I can't write to tell her my problem because I'm blocked, and my internet modem doesn't work to give me internet conection now and oddly I only can use Wikipedia.

I hope you can help me please to contact somebody of the Spanish Wikipedia, I don't know who else can give me a hand. And also needed to say that I am a good contribution to the English Wikipedia and I have been using it for a year and I haven't had any problems. If it's not much trouble I will email this to you aswell. Karlitatv (talk) 18:41, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Sorry to hear you are blocked on Spanish Wikipedia. Unfortunately, I am unable to review your case as my Spanish language skills are limited. Your explanation is a bit unclear about your circumstances. What is the message you get from the interface when you try to edit on Spanish Wikipedia? Perhaps you have been caught in an es:Wikipedia:Bloqueo automatic? In that case, you should use the {{desbloqueo}} template on your talk page there to have the block lifted. From es:WP:BLOCK:
De vez en cuando, los usuarios con IP dinámicas pueden encontrarse con un bloqueo accidental, debido a que su IP actual fue utilizada por un usuario registrado o anónimo ya bloqueado. Estos bloqueos desaparecen si se puede forzar el cambio de IP (por ejemplo, reiniciando el router o módem ). Si no es posible, se puede informar a un bibliotecario colocando la plantilla de Template:Desbloqueo en la discusión de la IP e indicando el número que aparece luego del símbolo # en el formulario de bloqueo
Make sure you include the block ID in your request. Let me know if you need further assistance. decltype (contact) 06:35, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Why balls bounce? listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Why balls bounce?. Since you had some involvement with the Why balls bounce? redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. GZWDer (talk) 19:10, 6 August 2015 (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.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Decltype. 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. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
