Disambiguation link notification for August 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Sea Dart, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sea Eagle (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.

Coordship[edit]

Sorry you had to wait so long on that A-class article. Have you given any thought to running for coord this year? - Dank (push to talk) 19:42, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

@Dank:, sorry what A class? Maury Markowitz (talk) 19:46, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Mark XIV bomb sight. It's got 3 supports now. FWIW, what you did didn't ping me, because you did it in two edits instead of one ... it's very finicky. - Dank (push to talk) 20:28, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Oh geez, I totally forgot about that! Yeah, the ping needs work. Maury Markowitz (talk) 21:03, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Maury Markowitz. 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. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Smith Canal[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 24 September 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Smith Canal, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Smith Canal was created to carry food to the Stockton State Hospital, California's first psychiatric hospital? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Smith Canal. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Smith Canal), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
