Disambiguation link notification for June 13

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Yaws, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Pinta (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Wikimania 2014 discussions

I added to the Barbican Centre Collaborations page and the Museum trip (Aug 11) page, but I found these pages from the main page contributors history. Can you help in making these pages and others like them apparent to the casual visitor and the newbie, and not just to techie types like me? I will assist you if you need help. It is early days on the Wikimedia 2014 pages, but experienced editors can help make this a fun and productive Wikimania. --DThomsen8 (talk) 16:29, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Barbican Centre Collaborations is linked from wm2014:Volunteers page, which is linked from the side bar. So, it is sufficiently visible, in my opinion. Ruslik_Zero 18:40, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Associated diseases categories page

Hi Ruslik0

I like the category pages you set up for the associated diseases of enteroviruses, Epstein-Barr virus, varicella zoster virus, cytomegalovirus and papillomavirus.

I am myself very interested in microbes and the diseases they are linked to.

I am just wondering if it might be an idea to make a distinction on your pages between diseases that these microbes are definitely known to cause, and diseases that these microbes have been associated with/linked to (and thus may play a causal role in the disease, but this role is not proven yet).

When you use a phrase such as "enterovirus associated diseases", the word "associated" generally implies the microbe (enterovirus in this case) has been "linked to" that disease (ie, it is statistically found more often in patients with the disease), which is not the same thing as saying that the microbe is a known and proven cause of the disease. (See Correlation does not imply causation).

To give an example: enteroviruses are known to cause poliomyelitis‎, that is, poliomyelitis‎ has been proven to be caused by enterovirus infection. So on your Category page, poliomyelitis‎ might appear in a section entitled say "Diseases known to be caused by enteroviruses". But as for the relation between enteroviruses and diabetes mellitus type 1, for example, well there is definitely a strong association between enteroviruses and diabetes mellitus type 1 (they are statistically found more often in patients with diabetes), but it has not been definitively proven that enteroviruses cause diabetes mellitus type 1. So in this case, diabetes mellitus type 1 might appear in your Category page under say the heading of "Diseases associated with enteroviruses". These titles are just suggestions.

Usually in medical research into infectious microbial etiologies of diseases, the first step is to demonstrate that there is an association between a given microbe and a disease; and then once this association has been shown, the next stage is to try to determine whether infection with that microbe actually causes the disease, or whether the microbe is plays no role in the etiology of the disease (it might just be an "innocent bystander").

I often contribute to this page, with lists many microbes that have been associated with diseases, but which have not as yet been proven to cause the diseases in question.

I hope this is of interest. Drgao (talk) 21:52, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

I have no objections, but want to note that if a diseases is caused by a virus, it is also associated with this virus. In other words these categories are not mutually exclusive. Ruslik_Zero 16:15, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Dear Ruslik0, On 13:04, 12 July 2009, you deleted page Olga Maliouk (A7: Article about a real person, which does not indicate the importance or significance of the subject).

Portal 3

In response to your closing of this discussion as delete. I disagree that there was a consensus reached. Only two people laid their opinions in not counting the nominator, myself included. I believe it's in the interest of fair discussion that the discussion is relisted to generate a consensus. CRRaysHead90 | #OneMoreGame 10:10, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Consensus is determined not by counting votes but by strength of arguments. "Redirects are cheap" is not a particularity strong argument. Ruslik_Zero 10:19, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
Oh I don't disagree that it's based on the strength of arguments. However, the fact remains only two arguments were given and so I don't believe a sufficient discussion took place. CRRaysHead90 | #OneMoreGame 10:52, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Здравствуйте! Не могли бы Вы проверить статью? С английским есть некоторые проблемы, поэтому обращаюсь к Вам. Что насчет значимости, то в русской Википедии статья в прошлом году была удалена, а совсем недавно через страницу "К восстановлению" была восстановлена (за это время жизнь и деятельность певицы широко освещалось в авторитетных источниках). Значимость статьи подтвердил один из администраторов (который и подвел положительный итог). Очень надеюсь на Вашу помощь. Заранее спасибо. Ugonschik (talk) 14:29, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Request to reconsider your closing of Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Wikipedia:Using Archive.is

Per the pre-requisites for invoking WP:DRV, I'd like to strongly suggest that you reconsider the closing you made for this MFD. While the original nomination reason for NOTHOWTO was refuted (as evidenced by Graeme Bartlett and De728631), other reasoned justifications were presented and poorly (if at all refuted/challenged). I assert that a more reasonable closing would have been Userfication to Lexein's space as suggested by BDD. Pending no or a decline to reconsider, I intend to invoke DRV within 72 hours of this posting. Hasteur (talk) 20:11, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Well, good luck with that. I would appreciate a more detailed closure rationale, though, if considered helpful. That's just me. I always do. --Lexein (talk) 20:46, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
I do not see any substantial support for userfication. Those who want to keep the page (in either Wikipedia or Help namespace) clearly prevailed in this discussion. Ruslik_Zero 19:23, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for expanding the closing rationale. --Lexein (talk) 15:14, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

FA review?

Hello,

I noticed that you are involved with the physics articles on Wikipedia, and I was wondering if you could help me out. Right now, I'm working to bring the article AdS/CFT correspondence to FA status. So far, people have had many good suggestions and many positive things to say about the article, but I'm having trouble getting people to support or oppose the nomination.

I was wondering if you'd be willing to take a look at it and tell us your thoughts at this page. Please note that you do not have to be an expert on the subject. The article has already been checked quite carefully by other reviewers, and at this point, I'm just looking for people who can check that it meets the FA criteria.

Please let me know if you're interested. Thanks. Polytope24 (talk) 16:00, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

History of Solar System formation and evolution hypotheses

I know next to nothing about this topic, even though I created the page, and so I've watched helplessly as various users have transformed it into a catalogue of fringe theories. There are no counter-arguments, and I don't know where to find them. So I'm hoping that, when you get back, you might please attempt to make the article more neutral. Thanks.

Become Wiki Project: Solar System coordinator

Hi, I am User:Owllord97 and I am interested in becoming an assistant coordinator of Wiki Project: Solar System. I am fairly new to Wikipedia, but have caught on quickly to most of its concepts. I am already a member of the project, in fact I think I am the newest member of it, and have contributed to some of the higher importance articles in need of attention. I have been regularly updating the page, particularly the to-do section, and have been vigilant of making sure articles are rated correctly. I have noticed that this page appears to not have much traffic as of late (Of course, I may be wrong) and so I hope to reinvigorate the page through regular updates, and feel that I could better do that if I was one of the leaders of this page. I know I could self-appoint myself, but would feel better if I had your blessing, just to be sure it is official. Contact me at any point if you wish, I check it almost everyday except the weekends, and will post an update in my talk section if I will be absent for any period of time.

No mdash in cites

I rolled back a couple of changes in the Mirage IV article - the basic stance, last it was told to me, was to use minus signs in page ranges and almost every other place as well.

If you exclude the creator of the template, it is really 3 against 1. In addition XfD discussions are not votes. Nobody countered the main argument for the deletion that this navbox was redundant to another navbox. It was indeed redundant and the second navbox contains all links from the first. Ruslik_Zero 06:51, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
That was not the main argument. It was a secondary argument after the main argument was refuted. Discussants may have even felt the main argument had been refuted.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 07:50, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Удалённые файлы о респираторах / СИЗОД

Уважаемый участник, благодарю Вас за сильную поддержку, оказанную мне при попытке восстановить авторитетные и проверяемые источники для статей Википедии и Викиучебников.

Прошу Вас найти возможность поддержать мои последние усилия по этому вопросу. Честно говоря, 9-го апреля я просто в шоке был, когда удалили даже чисто мои файлы, сделанные с нуля, с правильно указанной лицензией CC0.

Отправил письмо (11 апреля в ~16:00) в OTRS с запросом на разрешение разместить в вики две статьи о СИЗОД, опубликованные в журналах Академии медицинских наук РФ "Медицина труда и промышленная экология" и "Гигиена и санитария". Но я не могу понять, как написать такое письмо для получения разрешения на размещение в вики моего перевода не моего произведения, которое - как вы справедливо заметили - уже изначально является общественным достоянием... Простите Эчайника" - честно, не понимаю, ведь оригинал чужой, перевод мой, как им написать? И как написать об иллюстрациях - они частично копии из оригинального документа, частично - копии с надписями, переведёнными на русский язык, частично - копии с переведёнными надписями + добавлены высококачественные цветные современные изображения - а я сейчас даже не знаю, какие я тогда добавил...

В случае, когда файл состоял из 2-3-4 склеенных изображений, в разделе "лицензии" я последовательно (в том порядке, в каком перечислял источники этих изображений) перечислены лицензии изображений. Эта информация, вероятно, позволила бы выбрать требуемую лицензию - но у меня нет доступа к ней...


Спасибо Вам огромное, прошу Вашей дальнейшей помощи - больше обратиться не к кому!!


Ну как можно просто взять и всё удалить - не предупредив - я не понимаю !

Hi there Ruslik0, I've got a nit to pick with you about an image used in the Magnetosphere of Jupiter article. It's a beautiful free recreation of the image used in the original article. Unfortunately, it contains a rather substantial typo. Your units on the y-axis are W/m^2/kHz but the units in the paper are W/m^2/Hz. When you get a chance would you mind fixing the y-axis label on the image? It changes the flux densities by a factor of 1000..... Sailsbystars (talk) 23:00, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Invitation join the new Physiology Wikiproject!

Physiology gives us an understanding of how and why things in the field of medicine happen. Together, let us jumpstart the project and get it going. Our energy is all it needs.

Based on the long felt gap for categorization and improvization of WP:MED articles relating to the field of physiology, the new WikiProject Physiology has been created. WikiProject Physiology is still in its infancy and needs your help. On behalf of a group of editors striving to improve the quality of physiology articles here on Wikipedia, I would like to invite you to come on board and participate in the betterment of physiology related articles. Help us to jumpstart this WikiProject.

  • Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProkect Physiology talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • You can tag the talk pages of relevant articles with {{WikiProject Physiology|class=|importance=}} with your assessment of the article class and importance alongwith. Please note that WP:Physiology, WP:Physio, WP:Phy can be used interchangeably.
  • You will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing physiology articles is essential and makes a big difference to the quality of articles. And, while you're at it, why not use a book to source information, which can source multiple articles at once!
  • We try and use a standard way of arranging the content in each article. That layout is here. These headings let us have a standard way of presenting the information in anatomical articles, indicate what information may have been forgotten, and save angst when trying to decide how to organise an article. That said, this might not suit every article. If in doubt, be bold!
  • Why not try and strive to create a good article! Physiology related articles are often small in scope, have available sources, and only a limited amount of research available that is readily presentable!
  • Your contributions to the WikiProject page, related categories and templates is also welcome.
  • To invite other editors to this WikiProject, copy and past this template (with the signature):
  • To welcome editors of physiology articles, copy and past this template (with the signature):
  • You can feel free to contact us on the WikiProkect Physiology talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. You can also put your suggestions there and discuss the scope of participation.

Hoping for your cooperation! DiptanshuTalk 12:35, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Block of 80.193.191.143

Hi Ruslik0. I have to say, this looks awfully like te use of admin tools to get your own way in a content dispute. The addition of the category to Marc Lépine was not vandalism - whilst it seems ill-advised, and I'd certainly be against its inclusion, this edit summary makes it pretty clear that the IP editor is acting in god faith. That makes this a content dispute between you and him, and as far as I can tell, you made no effort to discuss the issue before blocking.

I'm bringing this here in the hope that you can justify your block, perhaps by indicating other instances of recent vandalism by the IP (I can't find any, but I may not be reading sufficiently deeply) or by letting me know that you recognise the behaviour as sockpuppetry (in which case, fair enough). Otherwise, however, I think this block has to be lifted as an abuse of process - either that, or both you and he get blocked for edit-warring. Awaiting your response. Yunshui  11:57, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

This was just plain and simple vandalism. Ruslik_Zero 13:13, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, but I have to disagree - the category addition was a disruptive but good-faith attempt to improve the encyclopedia. There's certainly a case to be made for including the Marc Lépine page in that category - not a good case, I'll grant you, but in this instance I really fail to see how the IP's edits fall into any of the classifications at WP:VAND. Much as I dislike undoing another administrator's decision, I believe I'm obliged to unblock, and will do so now. Yunshui  13:36, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I do not understand how "disruptive" can be done in "good faith". This editor is just trying to put an intellectual badge of honour on a mass murderer, which potentially can put the whole project in the disrepute. So, if you unblock, you will be responsible for any future action of the person behind this IP address. I am not sure anything good will come out of this. Ruslik_Zero 14:57, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
"Disruptive," in that the edits were not appropriate, and that he edit-warred to keep them in. "Good faith", in that it seems to me as though he is genuinely trying to make an improvement to the encyclopedia. I don't think he sees or intends it as a badge of honour; it's simply that the two of you disagree on what constitutes a "critic" of feminism. Yunshui  08:25, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 26

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Cytomegalovirus vaccine, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mortality (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Wikimania 2014

Hi!

My name is Victor and I'm a storyteller and video producer for the Wikimedia Foundation. I'll be looking to capture stories about Wikimedians at Wikimania in London in a week. Here is an example of the kind of thing that I'm aiming to do. I saw that you're attending Wikimania and I was wondering if you might have some time to talk about what do you on Wikimedia projects. Anyway let me know if you are interested, I'll be at Wikimania from the 6th-10th of August and would need maybe 30 minutes of your time. I can answer any questions you may have. I’m best reached at vgrigas(at)wikimedia.org

Thanks!

О коррекциях

Салют! Как опытный участник, Вы должны сделать коррекции в этом тексте, если считаете смысл текста неверным. Или оставьте как есть (там всё верно на самом деле, просто не каждый русский это может понять, будь он хоть королём - терминология американца используется, включая именно 2 партии имеют страх перед НСА). Лоббирование? (финансирование и назначение своих ставленников в Конгресс). Будучи корректным, Обама не упомянул слово коррупция (двигать голоса через НСА и мануфактуры). И Обама - супер специалист для подобных мнений. Он:

Удалённые файлы о респираторах / СИЗОД

Уважаемый участник, благодарю Вас за сильную поддержку, оказанную мне при попытке восстановить авторитетные и проверяемые источники для статей Википедии и Викиучебников.

Прошу Вас найти возможность поддержать мои последние усилия по этому вопросу. Честно говоря, 9-го апреля я просто в шоке был, когда удалили даже чисто мои файлы, сделанные с нуля, с правильно указанной лицензией CC0.

Отправил письмо (11 апреля в ~16:00) в OTRS с запросом на разрешение разместить в вики две статьи о СИЗОД, опубликованные в журналах Академии медицинских наук РФ "Медицина труда и промышленная экология" и "Гигиена и санитария". Но я не могу понять, как написать такое письмо для получения разрешения на размещение в вики моего перевода не моего произведения, которое - как вы справедливо заметили - уже изначально является общественным достоянием... Простите Эчайника" - честно, не понимаю, ведь оригинал чужой, перевод мой, как им написать? И как написать об иллюстрациях - они частично копии из оригинального документа, частично - копии с надписями, переведёнными на русский язык, частично - копии с переведёнными надписями + добавлены высококачественные цветные современные изображения - а я сейчас даже не знаю, какие я тогда добавил...

В случае, когда файл состоял из 2-3-4 склеенных изображений, в разделе "лицензии" я последовательно (в том порядке, в каком перечислял источники этих изображений) перечислены лицензии изображений. Эта информация, вероятно, позволила бы выбрать требуемую лицензию - но у меня нет доступа к ней...


Спасибо Вам огромное, прошу Вашей дальнейшей помощи - больше обратиться не к кому!!


Ну как можно просто взять и всё удалить - не предупредив - я не понимаю !

Radio emissions of the solar system planets graph

Radio emissions of Solar System planets.png

Hi there Ruslik0, I've got a nit to pick with you about an image used in the Magnetosphere of Jupiter article. It's a beautiful free recreation of the image used in the original article. Unfortunately, it contains a rather substantial typo. Your units on the y-axis are W/m^2/kHz but the units in the paper are W/m^2/Hz. When you get a chance would you mind fixing the y-axis label on the image? It changes the flux densities by a factor of 1000..... Sailsbystars (talk) 23:00, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

I noticed when looking through the LAPD Talk Page archives that you were the last GA reviewer to review the article and although that was in 2008 I was wondering if you could help me out. To be clear I am not looking for a GA review now and if I were I would definitely go through the nomination process but just a sort of look through of the article to see if you think it still has serious problems that need to be resolved or if you think I should try and submit it for a GA review. If there was a way you could do that for me I would really appreciate it but if not, I totally understand. Thanks for your consideration. - SantiLak (talk) 01:38, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Template:Country data Virgin Islands

Hi, I am working on articles related to the 2015 Pan American Games and realized this template was deleted. The country is simply called Virgin Islands in the Pan American Games. Is there anyway the template can be restored? Thanks! Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 04:40, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

The problem is that there are two countries with this name. Which one do you mean? Ruslik_Zero 07:31, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
The one "owned" by the United States. The Virgin Islands, usually refer to them. I have never heard the British Virgin Islands be called the Virgin Islands. The IOC also refers to them as the Virgin Islands, and the British Virgin islands as that [1]. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 16:06, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
What I deleted was a redirect to U.S. Virgin Islands template. There had never been such a template as Template:Country data Virgin Islands. You should use template:Country_data_U.S._Virgin_Islands. Ruslik_Zero 19:07, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Invitation to subscribe to the edit filter mailing list

Hi, as a user in the edit filter manager user group we wanted to let you know about the new wikipedia-en-editfilters mailing list. As part of our recent efforts to improve the use of edit filters on the English Wikipedia it has been established as a venue for internal discussion by edit filter managers regarding private filters (those only viewable by administrators and edit filter managers) and also as a means by which non-admins can ask questions about hidden filters that wouldn't be appropriate to discuss on-wiki. As an edit filter manager we encourage you to subscribe; the more users we have in the mailing list the more useful it will be to the community. If you subscribe we will send a short email to you through Wikipedia to confirm your subscription, but let us know if you'd prefer another method of verification. I'd also like to take the opportunity to invite you to contribute to the proposed guideline for edit filter use at WP:Edit filter/Draft and the associated talk page. Thank you!

Help decide the future of Wikimania

Wikimania logo with text.svg

The Wikimedia Foundation is currently running a consultation on the value and planning process of Wikimania, and is open until 18 January 2016. The goals are to (1) build a shared understanding of the value of Wikimania to help guide conference planning and evaluation, and (2) gather broad community input on what new form(s) Wikimania could take (starting in 2018).

After reviewing the consultation, we'd like to hear your feedback on on this survey.

In addition, feel free to share any personal experiences you have had at at a Wikimedia movement conference, including Wikimania. We plan to compile and share back outcomes from this consultation in February.

Reversion of revision 697031305, Herpetic whitlow

I see that you have reverted my edit, revision 697031305, to the article Herpetic whitlow, simply claiming "It is not true". The reference in question is not a very good reference, being dynamic, and seems to refer to #16 in the list: "Kanavel A. Infections of the hand. In: A guide to the surgical treatment of acute and chronic suppurative processes in the fingers, hand, and forearm, 7th ed, Lea & Febiger, Philadelphia, PA 1939". The article on Herpes simplex claims (permalink), in the History section, that "Herpes was not found to be a virus until the 1940s" (reference #82). Please provide a better reference for the claim in "Herpetic whitlow" (as in, direct to a single work and not dynamic or a list), and if that source is Kanavel, explain why the justification I gave in the maintenance tag, "Apparently cited source is very old and was written before herpes was known to be a virus", is not true. Thanks! 84.108.247.200 (talk) 20:55, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

The cited source was "Overview of hand infections" article from http://www.uptodate.com/, which is not a very old source. Ruslik_Zero 20:53, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Iorio

Come talk to me before you revert again. I have a lot more info that you should hear before you decide. Jehochman Talk 19:03, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

Since what moment did publications in peer review journals become quackery? Ruslik_Zero 19:14, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
The problem is that somebody who appears closely connected with Iorio has been spamming the heck out of Wikipedia with his papers. Do you have admin ops here? If so you can look at this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Undelete/Lorenzo_Iorio. A bunch of socks have been blocked as a result of a multi-year COI/SPAM campaign. Moreover, peer reviewed journals are fine, but when something is later disproven, we do not blindly follow something just because it slid past peer review. See this paper that refutes Iorio's work as inaccurate. http://arxiv.org/abs/1602.06116v3
"We thus contradict the affirmation of Iorio (2016), who states that a body of 10 M⊕ is excluded if it resides closer to 1000 AU of the Sun. Iorio (2016) does not properly consider how much the presence of an additional body can be absorbed by the fit of all the other parameters in the solar system ephemerides"
Thank you for entertaining my explanations. If you want to restore Iorio, please make sure to add the contrary view that he might be wrong. Jehochman Talk 19:23, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
Some observation for @Jehochman:
  • There is a difference between a quackery and a reasonable disagreement between scientists.
  • The paper you cited has not been published yet. However, It does not actually completely refutes Iorio's work – it in fact partly agrees with it (by excluding a body on the circular orbit 200-300 AU from the Sun), but says that the analytical estimates of Iorio does not take into account the fact that the ephemerides themselves depend on the presence or absence of an additional planet.
  • On the other hand the paper of Iorio was cited by Batygin & Brown (2016), which is how I actually found about it.
  • Yes, I have admin ops here as well as on every Wikimedia project.
The purpose of the section that I created was to add information about dynamical constraints on any additional planet. Currently the article lacks any such information. Ruslik_Zero 20:02, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
Because Planet Nine is currently a very hot topic we should be extra careful not to give wrong information. Iorio's information is in doubt. I've very disappointed by the spamming campaign on Wikipedia. It makes me look especially closely at any citation to Iorio. Some are good and appropriate, and some are not. This pre-print article about Cassini was widely picked up in the news, and was authored by reliable scientists. It should be mentioned to clarify that Iorio's result may not be accurate. We don't want to leave the reader with the wrong impression. And really, really stop reverting me until we get to an agreement on this. Your opinions is not better than mine. When info is dubious, the default is to leave it out, not leave it in. Jehochman Talk 20:09, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

(on a sidenote guys, the Planets beyond Neptune article isn't about Planet Nine; I have no idea how to do this but the Constraints section needs to be about trans-Neptunian planets in general, not Planet Nine). 04:57, 3 March 2016 (UTC)Serendipodous

Extended confirmed protection

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Ruslik0. 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.

Global account lock on User:Bberry5

Hi. User:Bberry5's account has a global lock as a return of User:Starship9000. I'm curious if this was done mistakenly, since Bberry5 is a new account created by a student editor in a Wiki Ed-supported class. Could I at least ask that you give this another look please? Thanks. Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 15:52, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Are you sure that this account belongs to an actual student? Ruslik_Zero 20:11, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
Yes, pretty sure; the professor contacted me trying to understand what was going on. If you would like, I can ask him to email you directly (since he can validate that it's a real person who's in his class). Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 15:58, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Better if they e-mail: stewards@wikimedia.org Ruslik_Zero 19:27, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins

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

Hi Ruslik0.

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)

Lua

Hello. The template is el:Πρότυπο:Infobox football league (the Greek version of en:Template:Infobox football league). It is written in English.

I have 3 problems. Lets use as example Cypriot First Division (Q155965).

1) I need to have the current season. This can be done by P527. All seasons have the qualifier P393. I want module in the client to compare all edition numbers and tell which has the highest. (I can use rank=preferred but is not the best solution).

2) I need to have the first season. This can be done by P527. All seasons have the qualifier P393. I want module in the client to compare all edition numbers and tell which has the 1st one.

3) I want to show the team with the team with the most champions and the number of champions in brackets. Now I am doing this with rank=preferred but is not the best solution. It can be done by P1346 and P1355.

4) I want to shows the current champions with season. This can be done by P1346. I want module in the client to compare all victories and tell which has the latest one. To show the team and the season. OK, I know this is too difficult.

Добрый день. Я не очень хорошо говорю по-английски, поэтому решил написать Вам на родном языке. Мою статью выставили на быстрое удаление, т.к. ранее удаляли. Во время предыдущего обсуждения отметили, что нет значимости, тем более, что статью удалили из русского раздела (хотя компания российская). Не так давно статья прошла процедуру восстановления в русском разделе Википедии и была признана значимой, ряд участников, в том числе и администраторы, перед восстановлением поправили стиль статьи, чтобы она не выглядела рекламной. Я перевел статью с русского на английский и опубликовал здесь. Все ссылки, подтверждающие значимость (Коммерсант, Ведомости, Интерфакс и другие), я также выложил в английской версии. Прошу снять статью с удаления. Спасибо! Andrey Broker (talk) 07:17, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Статью уже удалили. Прошу помочь разобраться с вопросом. Те претензии к статье, которые предъявлялись в сентябре (а ту статью писал даже не я), не действительны. Статья была написана с нуля мной на основе авторитетных и независимых источников, никаких пресс-релизов и рекламных новостей. Спасибо!Andrey Broker (talk) 19:20, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Content creation

I don't think Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2016 November 30#Wikipedia:Content creation should have been closed as delete. I could reasonably see a no consensus close or a relist. Only one participant preferred deletion (the nominator brought it to redirects for discussion looking for a better target). Would you mind restoring them and reopening and relisting the discussion? I believe that action would likely draw more attention and help more fully achieve consensus. Best Regards, — Godsy (TALKCONT) 23:06, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Deletion discussions are not votes. A participant presented a compelling argument for deletion. All others advocated no specific solutions and presented no arguments for them. Ruslik_Zero 09:03, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
It is redirects for discussion, not redirects for deletion. It isn't the same as for deletion venues (e.g. articles for deletion). In regard to the argument presented for deletion: WP:XY states "Redirects that could equally point to multiple targets are usually deleted, as there is no way to determine which topic a reader is searching." It would apply if this redirect was content creation and deletion. Furthermore, XY was written as a guide for the article namespace, non-mainspace shortcuts are treated differently. Specifically and especially regarding non-mainspace redirects, it isn't uncommon for a redirect of this type to point to the primary topic or be left as is. Non-mainspace shortcuts often point to one place when they could equally point to others (sometimes hatnotes are used extensively). As I believe a consensus wasn't reached, and that relisting would be beneficial (as I describe in my opening post) and do no harm in this case (as it doesn't affect the readers in the mainspace), I would again request that the applicable redirects be restored and the discussion be reopened and relisted.— Godsy (TALKCONT) 01:28, 16 December 2016 (UTC)
The clear consensus was that in the current form the redirect was inappropriate. No other target had emerged in the discussion (and was unlikely to emerge). So, any relisting is useless. Ruslik_Zero 19:10, 16 December 2016 (UTC)
  • An editor has asked for a deletion review of Wikipedia:Content creation. Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedily deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. — Godsy (TALKCONT) 23:05, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Airbus A320neo family

Ruslik, you blocked User:217.250.187.159 for edit warring on Airbus A320neo family. The revert has been made again by User:217.250.189.7. Perhaps semi-protection is warranted for a few days? Thanks for whatever you can do. - BilCat (talk) 02:55, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
