It appears that there is no reason to continue any future information pertaining to the Street King energy shots. Not only has their website disappeared but all of the major retailers including Walmart, Walgreens, and Dollar General have discontinued carrying their products. I can not get an explanation from any of the distributors so evidently they have just quietly fallen off of the planet.

Undeletion request[edit]

A few years ago, you deleted the article on Um Vichet following this AfD. Could I get you to restore the article? According to this, Vichet has since played for the Cambodia national football team, meaning he now meets WP:NFOOTBALL. Thanks in advance. Sir Sputnik (talk) 01:50, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

== Undeletion request == Hey Ron back in 2009 you have deleted or restricted a page "Muhammad Shaikh" for indefinite period. Could I get you to restore the article please? I wanted to re create this page and update it with some latest infromation since he is a renown muslim Scholar. What was the reason for deletion.

Kindly let me know how can you help me. thanks Alam — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alammohammedm (talkcontribs) 23:24, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Ron Ritzman. 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.

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Ron Ritzman.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Water Music Publishing[edit]

Hello, I noticed you had deleted a page for "Water Music Publishing" back in 2012. I was looking to make a page for this company ASAP. It said on the bottom of the page that I should contact the users who had deleted the previous 'Water Music Publishing' page. I have complied my sources, and I am looking to move forward with this project ASAP. I would appreciate it if you could get back to me in a timely fashion.WaterMusicPub (talk) 20:35, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Dmurphy235 (talk) 16:28, 19 April 2017 (UTC)I was looking to create a page for Water Music Publishing, but I noticed you deleted it back in 2012. A message came up on the bottom of the page saying I should contact the users who had previously deleted it. I am looking to move forward with this project as quickly as possible. I have compiled 9 secondary sources, and can share them with you if you would like. Thanks! Have a great day.
