Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, I JethroBT. 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)

Are you at the Conference[edit]

???--v/r - TP 20:52, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

@TParis: I'm here! Any interest in meeting up? I JethroBT drop me a line 22:38, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
Anytime, I'm in the Wells Fargo room during the sessions recording them. But I'm up for drinks any time.--v/r - TP 22:41, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm headed to Cullen328's talk on the Teahouse until about 5:15, but I can meet with you afterwards, and am free this evening. Would you like to meet by the Wells Fargo Room on the fourth floor around then? (Also, thanks for recording the sessions!) I JethroBT drop me a line 22:45, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
TParis Ah, sorry. Forgot to ping you above. :P I JethroBT drop me a line 23:44, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
We have the photo at 5 - immediately after sessions.--v/r - TP 23:49, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
@TParis: Sadly, missed the photo (was chatting with Jim afterwards for a bit). Are you are at the lightning talks or the public policy discussion now? I'm at the Wells Fargo room; is there somewhere else I can meet you? I JethroBT drop me a line 00:21, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
@TParis: I sent an e-mail your way in case you want to get in touch with me by phone as well. I JethroBT drop me a line 00:27, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:51, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
