Quelle chimère est-ce donc que l’homme?
Quelle nouveauté, quel monstre, quel chaos, quel sujet de contradiction, quel prodige!
Juge de toutes choses, imbécile de ver de terre, dépositaire du vrai, cloaque d'incertitude et d'erreur, gloire et rebut de l'univers.

―Blaise Pascal

Quelle vanité que la peinture qui attire l'admiration par la ressemblance des choses dont on n'admire point les originaux.

―Blaise Pascal

S'il se vante, je l'abaisse ;
s'il s'abaisse, je le vante,
et le contredits toujours,
jusqu'à ce qu'il comprenne,
qu'il est un monstre incompréhensible.

―Blaise Pascal

Disambiguation link notification for October 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Existential risk from advanced artificial intelligence, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Stuart Russell (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.

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.

Nomination of List of people with autism spectrum disorders for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of people with autism spectrum disorders is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The thread is Removal of Criticism section on "Existential risk from advanced artificial intelligence" page with a weak excuse. Thank you. Amortias (T)(C) 20:25, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

I just reopened that as I feel that Exa~enwiki has made legal threats and I have blocked them. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 10:55, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I suspect that others did too. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 11:32, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Discuss with me?[edit]

Hi there,

I wanted to see if you were still an active Wikipedia editor and to invite you to discuss the renaming of the article Evidence of common descent. See: Talk:Evidence_of_common_descent#Article_Title and Talk:Evidence_of_common_descent#Requested_move_5_March_2016.

Cheers! A. Z. Colvin • Talk 01:10, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Silence. 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)
