Bukharian Jews[edit]

Hello Mr. Strad! I'am contacting you in regards of the article "Bukharian Jews" [[1]] on the Wikipedia. I'am sorry in advance if I missed something or contacted you not related to the article. May be you can help me to write an article or guide me to the correct person to add some information to the article. I have noticed that on the article "Bukharian Jews"under section "Notable Bukharian Jews"missing a name. Wanted to ask you if you can add, a person Yakov Bachayev under "Notable Bukharian Jews". Yakov Bachayev is a former President of Bukharian Jewish Synagogue and the Community in Denver, Colorado. He is a Jewish activist that carried a mission to build Bukharian Jewish Synagogue in Denver, Colorado. Up until today he helps with progress, development and guidance of the Bukharian Jewish Synagogue and the Community. I can provide you some proof about him being a president of the Bukharian Synagogue in Colorado and job that he did. Also the whole history of the Bukharian Jews coming to Colorado in general. Just let me know what information do you need to complete the section. Thanks in advance Misha. (Mishadoktor (talk) 09:33, 13 September 2016 (UTC))

@Mishadoktor: Hi there! First, I should warn you that "notable" on Wikipedia usually means something slightly different than it does elsewhere. In most places it is just about synonymous with "famous", but on Wikipedia, "notable" means "is eligible for a Wikipedia article". For Yakov Bachayev to be eligible to have his own article, and therefore eligible to be included in the list of people on Bukharian Jews, he needs to fulfil these criteria. Let me know if you have any questions about them. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 11:59, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Mr. Stradivarius. 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)

Nigeria Wiki Loves Women template[edit]

Hi, I seem to have got my wires crossed on what was wanted. Can you revert what ever you did and see exactly what Anthere wants, thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:13, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

@Dr. Blofeld: I only ever edited the template sandbox, so there isn't anything to revert. Is there a discussion somewhere about what the template needs to do? That would help me to get started. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 01:54, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
Hi, thanks for you help. Anthere might explain, there might be nothing to edit after all, I just thought she wanted a new assessment on the banner that's all!♦ Dr. Blofeld 06:49, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah; no problem Stradivarius.
I have sort of given up trying to get Shola to understand that tagging articles {{WikiProject Nigeria|WLWNG=yes}} is NOT the same thing than tagging them {{WikiProject Wiki Loves Women}}. I guess I will do the tagging myself from time to time or find someone to help do it. Or stop bothering entirely. I am not sure. I am in a "let it go" mood this morning ;) Anthere (talk)
