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.

Please use my talk page[edit]

if you want to say something to me, please do it on my talk page, not Materialscientist's. --Floquenbeam (talk) 23:26, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

It fits to the issue raised there. --Leyo 23:34, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
Well, I disagree with you in this case, but I'm not going to clog up Materialscientist's talk page with it. I guess we can do it here. Mass rollback was (according to the bot owner who requested his edits be rolled back) the only practical way to undo the +/- 1500 edits. He plans to re-run the bot later to add back the reverted edits that were correct. I'd hoped that mass rollback allowed a custom edit summary, but it didn't. Apparently Writ Keeper has written a version that does allow a custom edit summary, which I'm going to install and play with shortly. I suggest waiting for Headbomb to re-run the AWB run with the correct parameters, but if you want to revert any more of the edits I made before then, feel free. --Floquenbeam (talk) 23:39, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Leyo.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Leyo. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

Eawag[edit]

Hey quick note to thank you for the follow-up on the Eawag article (and basically watching over my typos)! I'll probably do a last bit of proofreading tomorrow, but I think I'm mostly done for the referencing work. I've put a note on the talk page asking for feedback vis-à-vis the removal of the {{third-party}} and {{more footnotes}} templates, but since you've worked on it too I might as well ping you directly. Cheers, Pplc (talk) 16:14, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Polychlorinated terphenyl, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Chlorination (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:58, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
