Protection of your user talk page[edit]

There's no policy that allows you to fully protect this talk page. Please undo your protection. Thank you. --NeilN talk to me 12:57, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

I am probably going to leave soon and would prefer that this talk page not get cluttered up. --Jakob (talk) aka Jakec 13:02, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Non-admin editors don't have that option available to them so admins cannot use protection for preferential treatment of their talk pages. --NeilN talk to me 13:13, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Seconding NeilN's concerns, "I ... would prefer that this talk page not get cluttered up" isn't a valid reason for semi protection, far less full protection. You were using admin status to avoid interaction. Acroterion (talk) 17:04, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
And I apologize for that. I had just seen an editor claim straight-facedly that Wiki(p/m)edia policy effectively placed the site above the law in everything but copyright. I was spooked and deeply disturbed by that and overreacted in the heat of the moment. Anyway, I've since undone it (as you can see—a non-admin has since edited this page). --Jakob (talk) aka Jakec 18:48, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for doing that, I appreciate it. Acroterion (talk) 23:25, 6 September 2016 (UTC)


Why can't I mess around with your userspace, when you've announced you're leaving Wikipedia? ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 16:58, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

It's bad form, we generally allow people the courtesy of developing content in their userspace as they see fit. It was also bad form for Jakec to respond as he did, and I'm not on board with deleting the content once moved, but I believe the status quo ante is satisfactory. Acroterion (talk) 17:14, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
The problem is he isn't going to continue to develop it. So it makes sense to move to mainspace. I could have copy-pasted it to mainspace, but that would have some attribution issues since I didnt write it. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 17:35, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
The issue is that they were woefully incomplete, as anything more than a cursory glance would have shown. At least half had yet to show notability. My objection was not so much that you moved my drafts (which would have only been slightly rude) but that you moved a bunch of half-finished drafts. --Jakob (talk) aka Jakec 18:48, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
@Acroterion: AFAIK I did not actually delete it, just moved it back to user space. --Jakob (talk) aka Jakec 18:49, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
And now you have deleted them all. At least Laurel Run (Little Muncy Creek) was a decent start at an article that could be improved over time. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 20:13, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
I do not see how deleting those pages does anything to help the encyclopedia. Before I take this to ANI, I'll give you a chance to undo that. Jonathunder (talk) 20:18, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

User:Jakec/Pennsylvania State Game Lands Number 12 is a well-referenced start about a notable subject. If you're leaving, other people are not wrong to move it to main space. Please don't respond rudely if someone does. And if you're not leaving, here is some advice. Jonathunder (talk) 19:08, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

  • User:Editorofthewiki I strongly suggest that you undo what you did, and leave Jakec's userspace alone. If you don't you are going to get brought to ANI and you will not have a leg to stand on. You appear to be unaware of this but there are extremely -- and I mean extremely - strong emotions in the community about not fucking around with other people's userspaces and especially not in the gravedancing way you have done this. You will do as you will, but if you don't self revert you are pretty much dead meat. Jytdog (talk) 20:29, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
    • I'm sorry, but what are you talking about? My edits were already reverted. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 20:31, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
      • oh good. i was only tracking the discussion here. Sorry for butting in. Jytdog (talk) 20:37, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
Let's give Jakec some space, please. Acroterion (talk) 23:27, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Jakec. 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)
