New Page Patrol survey[edit]


New page patrol – Survey Invitation

Hello ErikHaugen! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation also appears on other accounts you may have, please complete the survey once only.
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.

You are receiving this invitation because you have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey


Hi, my name is Pedro Rodriguez. I am a student at Michigan State University, working on an exploration of the Wikipedia adminship process under Jonathan Obar. You had previously showed interest in being a interviewee for our study. I can conduct the interview via Skype or email, whichever you prefer. I can be contacted at my email: to set up a time to Skype or , if you wish, to obtain your email to conduct the interview that way. Thank you for your participation in our study. SirGuybrush (talk)

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.

Terje Mikkelsen[edit]

Hei, Du slettet mitt første forsøk på å lage en engelsk side på dirigenten Terje Mikkelsen. Jeg vil nå gjøre et nytt forsøk, etter å har vært på skriveverksted for Wikimedia og har fått større kjennskap til Wikipedias behov for lenker og referanser. Det er et problem at så mye av hans virksomhet har vært i russisktalende land og Kina, men jeg tror jeg nå har skaffet nok engelsk dokumentsajon til at en artikkel skal bli holdbar. OK? Hilde Holbæk-Hanssen (talk) 19:24, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

Well, you don't technically need English sources! Although, all else being equal those would be preferable. I want to be really clear: the reason your article was deleted is that it was a copyright infringement. You must not copy text unless it is public domain (or available under a suitable license). Even if you paraphrase everything slightly, that is not OK. It needs to be entirely your own words. Thanks! ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 22:32, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
Also, I don't actually speak Norwegian, so it is likely that I'll miss some nuance of what you're saying... ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 22:34, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

Thank you. Sorry, you have a very Norwegian name. Hilde Holbæk-Hanssen (talk) 07:52, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, regrettably the only Norwegian I know is "I Jesu navn går vi til bords...". (Someone should write an article for that...) ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 18:39, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

RFC on Real Robot title[edit]

Hi. Since you participated in a recently closed (no consensus) move discussion for Real Robot, I’m just notifying you of an RFC on that title. — (talk) 21:41, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, ErikHaugen. 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)
