Welcome to my talk page. Feel free to ask me for something you need an administrator to do, or something that doesn't require the flag; whichever. Where I reply to posts here depends on how I'm feeling. Sorry, but I'm inconsistent. I will reply though, and if you ask me to reply somewhere specific I'll do that.

DYK for A Pair of Silk Stockings[edit]

The Feed listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect The Feed. Since you had some involvement with the The Feed redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Si Trew (talk) 07:11, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Category:United States feeder judges[edit]

I know you just created this category and are populating it. I reverted the insertion of the cat on Reinhardt's and Kozinski's articles (both are on my watchlist). I haven't looked at the others. I realize that Reinhardt and Kozinski may indeed be feeders of law clerks to the Superme Court, but nowhere in the articles does it say that. This cat is no different from any other cat. It must be supported in the body of the article. I thought I'd leave this message as I'm not fond of reverting other administrators without at least explaining myelf. Thanks.--Bbb23 (talk) 04:43, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Why didn't you just wait a bit? I'm demonstrably in the process of bringing the article live. ÷seresin 04:45, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
I don't know what you mean by "demonstrably", but in any case you shouldn't be putting the cart before the horse. Add the material that supports the cat and then add the cat. Why should your cat be treated differently from any other cat? Sounds like Passover. Anyway, I'm going to bed. Take care.--Bbb23 (talk) 05:01, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
As in, I've spent the past hour putting the article in the main space, nominating it for DYK, creating redirects, adding links to it, creating that category and then categorizing the judges. Instead of continuing that process efficiently, I'm having to root around for the citations necessary to add them to your two pet articles before I was ready. I appreciate the courtesy you extend me because I'm an administrator (!) but perhaps have some substantive courtesy next time. ÷seresin 05:08, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Feeder judge, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Above the Law (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.

Nomination of Goal Line Blitz for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Goal Line Blitz is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:37, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Seresin. 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)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]


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 Seresin.

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)

  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.
