Help me[edit]

Hello Yaris678, I am new to this wiki, could you please tell me how do I protect a Wikipedia pageLuke de paul (talk) 12:18, 3 March 2016 (UTC)


Hello Y. I work with the Category:Wikipedia pages with incorrect protection templates helping to remove templates. The article Reverse racism is now in the cat. It looks like the reason is that when you extended the PC protection here you did not set a new expiry time. So you can a) go back and set one and update the template or b) if you want it permanently protected just change the info in the expiry field to indef. Either course of action will get that article out of the cat and would be of help. Thanks for your time. MarnetteD|Talk 05:51, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I normally let bots add the protection template. Should I conclude that bots don't update existing protection templates, so I should do this manually? Yaris678 (talk) 12:34, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
Hello again Y. Thanks for checking on this and I see you have already updated the template so thanks for that as well. To answer your question you are correct that bots do not update existing protection templates. For regular protections this isn't a problem as, most of the time, the existing protection has expired and the template has been removed before a new protection is applied. I see this most often with "pending changes" protections. Oftentimes they are (wisely) extended before the current protection has expired but the system that you use does not update the expiry time in the template. You can update them manually which would be helpful. I also catch these in my work with the category and update them but this one instance was different as your edit summary didn't mention a new expiry time and I didn't want to make any assumptions about what your intentions were. My years of editing here have taught me that it is better to ask then assume :-) Cheers and I hope that you have a pleasant weekend! MarnetteD|Talk 17:11, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Manchester Science Festival poster.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Manchester Science Festival poster.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 03:21, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks b-bot. The file has been superseded by File:Poster for the 2015 Manchester Science Festival.pdf and so is no longer used. I have deleted the file. Yaris678 (talk) 11:41, 7 April 2016 (UTC)[edit]

You recently blocked for "long term abuse". Based on what, please? The contributions page shows only two edits, one made last year, and seemingly good-faith, the other lacking a citation, but otherwise also good-faith.

Likewise, with only three edits, two from 2013. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:17, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Hi Andy,
Both of these blocks are part of a single range block.
See the discussion here and the history of that IP range here.

Mahfiruz and others[edit]

Hi. The dynamic ip has again for the Nth time readded the deleted content, a mix of unsourced claims, or of claims based on a blog, sometimes keeping the source so that the content appears sourced when in fact the source says the contrary, sometimes blatantly contradicting reliable sources of the article without explanation. What do you want me to do? Put this sentence on the diff or on the talk page before reverting, would be enough?--Phso2 (talk) 17:16, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

It's probably easiest to explain it more fully on the talk page and then, when you revert, give an edit summary like "unsourced and contradicting sources. See the talk page". Yaris678 (talk) 17:31, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
Done. If it is OK for you, i will then revert, and call you back the next time the text is edited in the same fashion.--Phso2 (talk) 17:46, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
Here you are. There is the same problem here with the same user: as soon as the page was unprotected the same multi-reverted unsourced content came back, including the usual source falsification on note 3.--Phso2 (talk) 16:34, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Same user has now turned to new playgrounds [1], [2], [3]. No every contribution has been already added and reverted before this time for the second article, but the general pattern is always the same: addition of unsourced content often contradicting the sources, unability to even defend his/her point, source falsification etc. What can we do?--Phso2 (talk) 22:47, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Hi @Phso2:
Sorry for the delay - I don't have much time to be on wiki at the moment.
It looks like you have found quite a pattern. Looking at your recent edits, some of those reverts may be related too. This is bigger than the protection of one or two pages.
I recommend you use Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents. Start a new thread there, describing the pattern that you see being repeated over several pages and give links to show the pages and edits you are talking about. This will bring it to the attention of a larger number of admins. They will probably ask you a few questions and decide between them what is the most appropriate course of action.
Yaris678 (talk) 10:17, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
OK, I will do it when I find the time to make a proper statement.--Phso2 (talk) 18:38, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
I, sorry I didn't notice you had responded on ANI. There is some surge of activity on Kösem Sultan currently, and on an lesser scale on [4] (not very very often, but on a very repetitive way). What do you think?--Phso2 (talk) 09:40, 3 July 2016 (UTC) PS: perhaps also Turhan Hatice Sultan
