Discretionary sanctions alert concerning broadly related to gender-related disputes[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding all edits about, and all pages related to, (a) GamerGate, (b) any gender-related dispute or controversy, (c) people associated with (a) or (b), all broadly construed, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you that sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Doug Weller (talkcontribs) 12:56, December 13, 2017 (UTC)
We need to fix the wording of this message. I know it's been on your page for months, but just in case it still feels like a "warning", the meaning of this message is something more like this: "Because of a years-long history of behavior problems caused by editors who are NOT YOU, some admins may be strangely quick to block editors who make mistakes in some of the articles you've been editing. We're sorry that this mess is going on, and we hope you will please be a bit more cautious around that mess than you would in a normal article, so this mess doesn't get on you."
Also, for the real reason that I came over here, I thought that you might want to read Wikipedia:Advocacy. For a number of years, advocacy was treated mostly as a type of WP:COI, but it was mostly split out into its own thing a few years ago. And since Wikipedia:Nobody reads the directions, you may see some editors use the terms interchangeably. Good luck, WhatamIdoing (talk) 18:53, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Transgender history[edit]

I generally support your change at Transgender history, which is mostly a deletion of material related to drag queens. However, at -3,135 bytes and changes in multiple sections, that's a pretty big change, and if someone has a problem with only a portion of it, you're inviting a revert, even if the clear majority of it is fine. Next time, if contemplating a similar change (or, if someone else reverts this one) please consider limiting each change to one section of the article at a time. Nothing wrong with going into an article, and making a dozen different edits to a dozen sections. For one thing, this allows you to add a separate edit summary for each one, explaining what you did, which may be enough to forestall a revert. And if something does need to be reverted, it might be limited to one of your edits pertaining to one section, instead of everything all at once. Let's see how this one goes, but please keep this advice in mind for next time. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 05:01, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

A belated welcome![edit]

The welcome may be belated, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

I know you've been here over a year, but it seems like nobody's ever posted a "Welcome" message here. That sucks. So, allow me:

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, LibrePrincess. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Mathglot (talk) 05:05, 17 June 2018 (UTC) Mathglot (talk) 05:05, 17 June 2018 (UTC)


Get some sleep, okay? Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not that important, and the world won't end if things aren't settled today. When you're feeling a little more rested, try taking a trip through Category:Humorous Wikipedia essays. It might put you in a better frame of mind for figuring out what you want to do, and some of the pages are surprisingly informative. WhatamIdoing (talk) 04:06, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Gender-related edits[edit]

I see you've become embroiled in some controversy due to some of your recent contributions to Gender dysphoria in children, James Cantor, and Species dysphoria, as reflected in two discussions going on at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine. Remember that writing from a neutral point of view is Wikipedia's second pillar; if you feel too close to the subject, or are having trouble editing without feeling that you need to right great wrongs, maybe consider take a little wikibreak from this topic, and edit in some other of your interest areas for a bit. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. Mathglot (talk) 08:46, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Socialist Rifle Association for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Socialist Rifle Association is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Socialist Rifle Association until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Kleuske (talk) 11:12, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
