I noticed that you blocked this IP address indefinitely! Per WP:IPBLENGTH this should very rarely be done! Is there a reason you believed that an indefinite block was necessary? A User (contribs) 12:37, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
Please do not block IP addresses indefinitely! It is terrible practice! If you fail to lift or provide a satisfactory reason for each of these blocks, you may be desysopped! Thank you. A User (contribs) 06:12, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Indef blocks can be made, but yes, you make a point here. Tell you what, I will unblock, and trust you will put the IP on your watchlist. Moriori (talk) 22:34, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
Hello, Moriori. 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.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
