Happy Adminship Anniversary![edit]

Wikipedia Administrator.svg Wishing Leyo a very happy adminship anniversary on behalf of the Wikipedia Birthday Committee! Slightlymad 04:25, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. I wasn't aware of that. I even had to look up how many years ago I became an admin. ;-) --Leyo 09:48, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

You sure do delete pages and ban users an awful lot for an admin who requested tools only for moving photos.

Colonel Warden was right about you, operating in a bureaucratic, high-handed fashion and does not communicate well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:8803:400:3510:4905:16AF:BBB7:9701 (talk) 17:14, 19 December 2017 (UTC)


Thanks for pulling me back yesterday. Sometimes I get paranoid and react too quickly to large revisions. --Smokefoot (talk) 14:09, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Your hindsight shows human greatness. --Leyo 14:58, 15 January 2018 (UTC)


I was wondering why that gadget won't load properly on RTL languages?--◂ ‎épine 04:49, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

No idea. Please ask this question at c:MediaWiki talk:Gadget-PrettyLog.js. --Leyo 20:05, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

I started an article on the trisiloxane. Feel free to contribute or make suggestions. --Smokefoot (talk) 15:33, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the article. I linked it to the Wikidata item. Concerning the claim that the trimer is not of significant industrial interest, please take into account that is was registered in the EU by a dozen of registrants for the tonnage band of 1,000–10,000 tonnes per annum. --Leyo 16:07, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. It takes a village to build an article, or something like that. --Smokefoot (talk) 02:43, 19 July 2018 (UTC)


Hello Leyo,

I am currently facing some sort of an unfortunate problem. I have asked both Alex Shih and Bbb23 about this; I suppose I have annoyed both of them and I have no idea whom I am supposed to ask at this point. As you know, I have been tbanned from automobile and units of measurement (not complaining how unfair that was at this point); and, well, I have been found guilty of evading the topic ban because I had both asked another editor to refrain from adding original research to an automobile article and editing an article that was later declared automobile-related (ignoring my arguments and literature on the topic but not citing any sources). As the result, I have been blocked for 6 months for topic ban evasion. I definitely do not want to get blocked again for the same reason (that would most likely be an indefinite block), but I have no idea how to contribute to Wikipedia without accidently violating the tban. 'Automobile' and 'units of measurement' is just not very precise (technically I am violating the topic ban by signing my posts on talk pages as it adds units of measurement to it (date and time)); some have said that I am taking the ban too broadly, but then some topics were declared 'ban related' when I thought they were not. It was also suggested that the ban gets suspended (so I could prove that I am a proper editor), but other administrators have said that I can prove it without a ban suspension by creating some nice articles and the ban was not suspended. Now I have no idea what to do. I am obviously a knowledgable editor (just some good and featured article examples 1, 2, 3, 4) but the line between the non-automobile articles and the automobile articles is not very precise in this case. I have tried to write some non-automobile articles but I fear that some 'expert' would declare them automobile/unit of measurement-related even though they are not in my opinion. Could you do me a favour and read these articles I have already written and tell me what you think about them? It requires about 7 minutes of your time. Best regards, --Johannes Maximilian (talk) 00:21, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Could you please ask someone else/somewhere else? I am currently short in time due to real life. It would take me much more time than 7 minutes to give you an informed reply. Additionally, I was involved in your case previously. Therefore, it would be best to ask for another view without prejudice. --Leyo 21:58, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
Well then, thank you. --Johannes Maximilian (talk) 14:38, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Pesticide topics[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svgThis is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have recently shown interest in genetically modified organisms, commercially produced agricultural chemicals and the companies that produce them, broadly construed. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect: any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or any page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor. 

In addition to the discretionary sanctions described above the Arbitration Committee has also imposed a restriction which states that you cannot make more than one revert on the same page in the same 24 hour period on all pages relating to genetically modified organisms, agricultural biotechnology, or agricultural chemicals, broadly construed and subject to certain exemptions.

Kingofaces43 (talk) 17:43, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Please keep in mind that you are on extremely thin ice and are risking a block or other sanctions in the subject. You were already warned about aspersions the last time you did it, but 1RR was established in the topic to prevent editors from edit warring disputed content back in like you did. Arbs were very clear at the GMO case that not gaining consensus for disputed edits like this and trying to reinsert them is gaming of 1RR. Please remember to undo your edit warring at this point.
