Hi. You indefinitely protected User:Sango123 in March 2007. It's been over six years now. Could you please unprotect this page? --MZMcBride (talk) 20:51, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Hello, just one thing[edit]

I was trying to add the shortcut "WP:RAR" because it redirects to the policy page WP:Removing administrator rights. I don't think you made the right choice about removing it. Please put it back if possible. If not, leave me a message saying why not. 2602:304:CE27:9C69:699A:F9D3:80F6:5EE1 (talk) 01:19, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

That particular edition has been reverted before [1]. You also did not leave an edit summary Edit summary which is useful to other editors checking your edits. Also there are a few other username very similar to yours containing only numbers and letters, any input on that--Theda 02:53, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) It appears to be an IPV6 IP address. I assumed that they were an IP editor, bu now I see that it is actually their username! Face-surprise.svg 220 of Borg 03:24, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
It appears that way but may well be something else [2] but who am I to point a finger. There are a quite a few of them curiously, just take a look at my contribs and one at least one more [3]. Might best report to them to WP:UAA, Maybe another admin may recognize has input if only on WP:IMPERSONATOR, they apparently arent going to render one. I would but I have to get bed to make a morning appointment.--Theda 03:53, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Theda. 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]

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 Theda.

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) 13:48, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Theda. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 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.

Fupa creation protection[edit]

I noticed that you placed the page Fupa (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) under creation protection. However, it shares the same meaning, "fat upper pubic area", with the acronym F.U.P.A., which still stands as a redirect to Abdominal obesity. Would you be willing to remove the creation protection for Fupa so that I can redirect it to Abdominal obesity? Otherwise, I will start the process of deleting F.U.P.A. for consistency. 93 16:15, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
