I beg you nicely and politely[edit]

The benzene structure of Dewar and Ladenburg were 3D and my midterm assignment was to add the 3D struture, please understand me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ShinRyu Forgers (talkcontribs) 04:39, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Leyo, this person also posted on my talkpage, where I responded in detail about the chemical problems ("wrong", not just redundant/lower-quality compared to other available). This is the second such enthustistic but seemingly out-of-his-depth (and using similar structure-misgeneration approach) I have encountered this week. Wonder if there are more in this class?

  • It is not the fault of Wikipedia editors that your teacher does not seem to have a clue about Wikipedia. Otherwise (s)he would not have given you such an assignment. See Wikipedia:Student assignments for more information.
  • Key articles such as benzene can't be improved easily, since they are already on a high level. Niche articles, on the other hand, may be improved much more easily.
  • If you intend to create high-quality ball-and-stick models of molecules (example), please read how to make 3D images of molecules.
  • In any case, upload your files in much higher resolutions. 350 × 300 pixels is way too small, especially for print.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

FC Zurich[edit]

Hi Leyo, Per WP:BURDEN, I have challenged unsourced statistics that have then been added back without any attempt to provide a source, despite me requesting on the users talk page. Regarding the notable players listing, there is a clear Manual of Style developed through longstanding consensus for this sort of thing. At every stage I have highlighted this in my edit summary. Elements that the other editor has made that have aligned the list with the required consensus have been left, elements that continue to fall well short of this requirement have been removed. At each instance the editor has been clearly directed to the area of the manual of style which continues to be contravened.

I am really not sure what discussion on the talk page would achieve (especially given that the user does not attempt to communicate in edit summaries and has not bothered to respond to my (admittedly belated) attempts to communicate directly on his talk page). Policy is clear, challenged information should not be added back without a reliable source and long standing consensus is clear at WP:FOOTY concerning how lists of notable players should be treated in club articles. A discussion between two editors on an article talk page would be an inappropriate forum to attempt to alter either policy or wider consensus. Fenix down (talk) 11:22, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Two longstanding users with opposite opinions (each of them thinks he's right), multiple reverts → edit war.
One's point cannot be forced through an edit war. You should have asked for an uninvolved party to step in. --Leyo 22:12, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi Leyo, I've put the correct source-references for the Player Records section on the Talk:FC Zürich page with explanation on the source and the 'edit war' (which was not my intention to end in!). Since I'm blocked to edit the the site at the moment I'm unable to add them but will sure do if those sources and the new section are accepted. Fischbach (talk) 09:58, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

About some proposals on WT:VA/E[edit]

I've proposed to add chlorofluorocarbon and Magnesium chloride to WP:VA/E, but they have been having no votes for at least 7 days. Hope that you can participate in the voting of these proposals. Thanks!--RekishiEJ (talk) 16:08, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

I'd suggest that you post this to WT:Chem. --Leyo 16:33, 19 March 2016 (UTC)


MIREX (music)[edit]

Dear Leyo,

Since I have just started contributing to Wikipedia, I am still not familiar about the processes. Sorry for this. You marked the article "Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange" as "considered for deletion". I have just started with cleaning up certain Wikipedia pages that are connected to the research area "Music Information Retrieval" (MIR). MIREX is an important component of that research area. Therefore, I think it should be included in Wikipedia. Since I have to synchronize/discuss many things with colleagues, it will take a couple of days until everything is in a good shape. The main changes concerns the following sites:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Society_for_Music_Information_Retrieval https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_information_retrieval https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_Information_Retrieval_Evaluation_eXchange

Please reconsider your recommendation after these changes have been made. Of course, I am grateful for any helpful comments.Meinard.mueller (talk) 14:54, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Please post your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange. Concerning notability, see Wikipedia:Notability. --Leyo 09:16, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

MILS series[edit]

Please look at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Metal Ions in Life Sciences and comment if wish. Petergans (talk) 19:56, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

What about bringing it up at WT:Chemistry? --Leyo 20:52, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion. However, as the article has already been deleted, it's too late. Petergans (talk) 11:07, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Blaise Nkufo / Tiny Ruys[edit]

There was no "AWB error" on Nkufo and no "rollback vabdalism" on Ruys - it was the removal of unsourced material about BLPs. GiantSnowman 08:38, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

It seems to me that you need to learn how to use the edit summary properly. “clean up using AWB” does clearly not correspond to this massive removal of valid content.
Rollbacking is to fight vandalism. Any other reverts need to be (very briefly) reasoned. As you have previously been made aware, 60% of editors whose edits had been reverted without any explanation said that this made them less likely to edit, while only 9% of editors whose edits had been reverted with explanation felt less inclined to edit. Hence, consider this inappropriate warning as being directed to yourself. --Leyo 10:18, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
It seems to me that you need to read WP:NOTVAND. "Clean up" does refer to the removal of unsourced content about living people. The warning aimed at the IP was appropriate (though I fully acknowledge that I should have selected 'unsourced' rather than 'vandalism' option). GiantSnowman 12:38, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
“clean up using AWB” refers to technical clean-up, not to removal of content. --Leyo 21:44, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Leyo. 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. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
