Re ITN football[edit]

I am not arguing with you about your decision in any way, but I was wondering if you could provide a more detailed explanation of your weighing of arguments in making your decision. If you don't wish to, no need to reply back, but either way I thank you for your time. 331dot (talk) 14:56, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

I was just pointing out that the two sides have so diametral positions that we will not get to a consensus. That is all ... Trying to save everyone some time ;) --Tone 15:01, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
I understand, if disappointed(not with you in any way, just the result). Again, thank you. 331dot (talk) 15:05, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Marco Polo[edit]

Hello Tone, thank you for your valuable contribution. As you noticed, there is a potential edit war starting on Marco Polo. The current version of the article is the result of a consensus found after a long discussion (I checked in the archives, you participated), so any significant change should be first discussed in the talk page. Let's hope things will settle down. Silvio1973 (talk) 12:41, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

@Silvio1973: please answer and constructively continue the discussion so we can end it, as you started it on almost null basis. There's still no single word from your side what makes those edits "disruptive". Also, would like to see the link to the "consensus" in the archives by which you justify that "any significant change should be first discussed in the talk page".--Crovata (talk) 17:00, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
@Crovata:, I am trying to discuss with you. But this is astronomically difficult. In understand now why you have been blocked so far so many times. --Silvio1973 (talk) 09:17, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
@Silvio1973: You're all the time intentionally ignoring the topic of the discussion you started. About the revision you reverted you did not say a single word beside calling it disruptive. There was no input on any issue by which you justify the revert of sourced information (more than 7,000 bytes). Now you even edited the article without the consensus from my part, and you knew very well what was my stand on the matter. You even said "if you have a better proposal go ahead" - I did - and again you're ignoring me. I am not happy to say it, but you're an obvious case of WP:OWNBEHAVIOR. What's even worse, in your defense of your own mess up you're now mentioning my block log. How you dare playing on such a low card, without even knowing why blocks were made. In all those cases was editing for the good of Wikipedia. In all those cases I was right, and got blocked due to the other part manipulation. Other time don't go so low.--Crovata (talk) 15:10, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Maja Keuc[edit]

Why did you revert my revision? I agree with you about the emigrant category, but how is she not an expatriate? { [ ( jjj 1238 ) ] } 14:26, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Ah, right, that was another category. My bad. Expatriate is fine (also, good to see that the category is not empty, as the emigrant one was) ;) Reverted myself. Cheers! --Tone 14:31, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Tone. 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)

Edvard Antosiewicz date of death[edit]

I would like to correct the date of death for Edvard Antosiewicz. It is actually January 4, 1961, as confirmed by his Certificate of Death, Arkansas Department of Health, Vital Records Section, Registration District 529, Certificate Number 196100862. I have a certified copy of this certificate, if that helps. I've never done any Wikipedia editing, so I wasn't sure how to make the changes with the correct citation. (talk) 18:52, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi! Hm, the sportsreference source actually also says 1961. Must be a typo in the other source. Is that certificate somewhere online so that we can reference it? Tell me the link and I can show you how to cite it properly :) --Tone 18:59, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I don't have a link. I ordered the death certificate from the Arkansas Department of Health, so the certified copy is in my possession. The Arkansas Department of Health web site for ordering the certificate online shows his death date, as does his memorial on Find A Grave. I would consider both of those as secondary sources, though. (talk) 19:30, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Well, if secondary sources are available, that's still better than nothing ;) --Tone 06:11, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
