Welcome back![edit]

Protonk, I know that you have returned to editing recently but I saw your note at BN and I just wanted to welcome you back as an admin! We can use all of the active admins we can get! Liz Read! Talk! 00:48, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

  • Hey, take a look at AE. Just like old times, old friend. MarkBernstein (talk) 11:11, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
    • I'll probably try to stay away from GG as an editor. The committee and the community refused to tackle the basic issues in the topic area, so as far as I'm concerned they can deal with the perpetual bullshit coming from it. Protonk (talk) 11:43, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Great to have another skilled admin back. HighInBC 14:04, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
  • YES. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 20:19, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

As a recently returned sysop, welcome back to the admin corps. We always need help at WP:ADMINBACKLOG if there are any areas you can help with that would be most welcomed. Happy mopping! — xaosflux Talk 21:41, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks all for your thoughts. Protonk (talk) 11:58, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Sargun Mehta[edit]

Thanks for delisting the subject GA. I guess you missed to remove the GA tag from the article and hence I have done it now. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 05:19, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

  • @Dharmadhyaksha: thanks. I missed it in the instructions and I'm so used to Legobot adding it for GANs that I assumed it took them away from GARs. Protonk (talk) 10:12, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
That's fine. I also assumed the bot would do it and checked if the bot is down. Then found out some tiny instruction somewhere that this needs to be done manually. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 10:43, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Protonk. 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. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
