Article protection[edit]

Hello Rlendog. I am requesting full protection of

Please also consider blocking MrWriter245 (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • edit filter log • block user • block log) for persistent disruptive editing, for which he has been blocked three times already. Thanks. — JJMC89(T·C) 15:34, 28 July 2016 (UTC) Updated: 16:20, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

I have protected them for a month and left a warning for MrWriter. Protection may be overkill because only a single editor is violating the AfD consensus, but I see little harm in a temporary precaution given that there is an established consensus that these should be redirects. Rlendog (talk) 23:38, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
MrWriter245 has continued to violate the AfD concensus by recreating the protected Make Her Feel Good (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) at Make Her Feel Good (song) (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs). Given his history of disruptive editing and block log, which shows he hasn't learned, please consider an indefinite block. — JJMC89(T·C) 20:32, 6 August 2016 (UTC)
Body (Dreezy song) (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) is yet another example of violating AfD consensus. — JJMC89(T·C) 06:48, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
At this point I have to agree with you. He has had plenty of chances but doesn't change. I have blocked MrWriter245 indefinitely. Rlendog (talk) 15:16, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Rlendog. — JJMC89(T·C) 15:52, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Johannes Eggestein[edit]

Hi. In May 2015, you found that the result of an AfD for Johannes Eggestein was delete. An article on him would now pass notability guidelines having made professional debuts in 3. Liga and DFB-Pokal. I would like to request the un-deletion of the page. Regards, (talk) 13:33, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Looks like someone beat me to it. Rlendog (talk) 19:11, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I believe it was created from scratch. Thanks for the reply. (talk) 19:43, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Wanting to have the List of Stanley Cup Finals broadcasters article deleted[edit]

I've noticed that you helped spear-headed the campaign to have that particular article deleted from Wikipedia. It isn't fair that the National Hockey League's premiere championship event doesn't have its own individual article for its broadcasters while other sports do. That article took a really long time to set up and put together to just let it go by the waste-side. And just because they aren't fully sourced on the proper article itself, doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't non the less, more thoroughly sourced on the respective articles for said television networks. BornonJune8 (talk) 01:06, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

I voted to delete the East and West finals lists but stated that I thought the Finals list should be discussed separately. Rlendog (talk) 13:13, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Rlendog. 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)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Tangled Up in Blue Cover.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Tangled Up in Blue Cover.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content.

Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:37, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
