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.

Corporal punishment[edit]

Hello Gabbe, there is a discussion at Talk:Corporal punishment#Campaigns against about merging the article into the main corporal punishment article. Since you were involved with me in creating this set of articles in 2009 I thought you might wish to contribute. Best, Alarics (talk) 12:01, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

VOA block of Gunnyslur[edit]

Hi Gabbe,

It is a little bit of an honor to talk to one of the old guard who have been around since the beginning. I saw that you blocked this account as a vandalism only account but only for 36 hours. Normally these types of accounts are just blocked indefinitely as there is pretty much zero chance of them actually rehabilitating and becoming normal contributors. Just thought I would let you know. Cheers. --Majora (talk) 21:55, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Gabbe. 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. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
