Disambiguation link notification for September 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited NT Indigenous Music Awards, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Break The Silence (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.

SSCA[edit]

Surely, the fact that the criticism is reported in the media, makes it notable. I'm pretty sure it doesn't fall foul of undue weight, so why remove it? Spacecowboy420 (talk) 14:07, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Replied at Talk:Safe Schools Coalition Australia#Alan Jones, Tim Wilson, Jeff Kennett, Cate McGregor and the SSC. --Scott Davis Talk 22:57, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Parents and spouse[edit]

I am notifying people that responded at Template talk:Infobox person that it is now a formal !vote on whether to include or exclude parents and spouses in infoboxes. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 23:33, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

SA state redistribution[edit]

Nice submission of yours... unlike 95% of others it actually makes relevant points :) Timeshift (talk) 12:59, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Thank you. I hadn't noticed that the submissions have been published (I have been very sick in the last week). I shall read some others now. --Scott Davis Talk 13:09, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
It would seem Rachel Sanderson has managed to get half of Walkerville to submit objections to the boundary changes... seven pages worth. It's very amusing to see what reasons they provide, apart from Sanderson's boilerplate content. I've never seen so many submissions before, it is almost as though Sanderson has spearheaded abuse of the submission process. Timeshift (talk) 13:13, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, ScottDavis. 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)
