Coming up with a reason to say Hi[edit]

But it's FORBIDDEN Joe! Geez...--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 23:24, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Hey, @Ponyo: LOL! It's great to hear from you! Just between trips right now, it's a busy rest of year--next up: Maine, then the Redwoods, then Antarctica/South Georgia Island/Falklands. How's you?
That one really made me laugh, the Icelanders I've known seem very ... present with the idea that nature is dangerous, and that that's a matter of "common sense", so signs and regulations enforcing safety tend to be (by American standards) non-existent. Glad you enjoyed :) --joe deckertalk 17:10, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Joe Decker. 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)
