Deaths in November 2018Edit

Hi. As (I believe) the admin who entered page protection for the above while it was the "primary month" page in the Deaths project, please could I ask that you revisit in order to remove page protection, which is never kept for any monthly archived pages. The fact that page protection was added due to page moves contrary to consensus should not mean that it is maintained ad infinitum, as each and every archived page is denied that luxury. And, annoyingly, TheMagikBot keeps coming back to add a padlock symbol where none should really be in a scheme of consistently applied rules. Thank you and a Happy New Year.

I'm not an admin; unless one of the talk-page-stalkers does this you'll need to ask for unprotection at WP:RFPP. power~enwiki (π, ν) 17:59, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
*waves*   Done, not sure actually how that must've gotten protected because when you reverted the move the protection should've gone to Deaths in 2018 and not Deaths in November 2018. Also Refsworldlee there's no point in edit warring with the bot; removing the padlock does not make the protection go away Galobtter (pingó mió) 18:19, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks to you both (I must have misread the edit history, apologies to this page owner!). The page protection was put in place to prevent a one-off issue with one editor who decided to move the page when he had not even discussed it for consensus sake. That protection went on top of the regular anti-vandalism protection which happens every year for the "primary" page. Thanks once again, and I've noted the protocol for the Bot too.

Technical issues on vital article listEdit

I have noticed that we have some mistakes at templates and other things on the VA. Mark Twain has template vital article-level 3 although actually he is at the level 4. Geoffrey Chaucer have template vital article-level 4 and he is not listed at the level 3 but at the level 4 he is marked as "level 3". These issues are in other sections at 1-5 levels as well because of people when archive discuss not always mark these things in every level. Hansel and Gretel recently have been have removed while they were not on on the list! If you check archives you find that we removed them two times. First time in 2016 in right way and this year we have started nomination while actually they should not be on the level 4 already. Is this possible to correct these issues by your bot? Cheers.

I'll look at this next week once I'm back from vacation. It should be fairly easy for me to fix the level-3 and level-4 talk pages; I don't think all the level-5 ones work correctly with my bot. power~enwiki (π, ν) 23:45, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Systematic violations of active community sanctions by SmallbonesEdit

Hi, and best wishes to the year 2019. I want to inform you about the discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#Systematic violations of active community sanctions by Smallbones. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 10:46, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

The life-changing magic of tidying upEdit

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Organizing (structure) is an open AfD. The article right now is an unsourced dictdef. However, trying to find a good article about the concept of the job Marie Kondo has is very difficult.

I'm not immediately sure how to resolve this. power~enwiki (π, ν) 04:03, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Close of cycling CFDEdit

Hi, I'm a bit surprised at your close of Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2018_November_25#Climbs_in_cycle_racing_in_... (purge any articles that don't have significant content about cycling) as (although, IMO, a step in the right direction) (1) that's not an option that was discussed in the CFD, (2) it leaves the categories in an unusual/unique state (I can't think of any other categories with inclusion criteria about "significant content"), (3) it begs the question of what "significant content" means (e.g. consider Vaalserberg which currently has a small uncited paragraph about cycling or Jaizkibel which currently has more content about hiking than about cycling), (4) what if the section about cycling is split off to a separate article?  Is another CFD requesting either listify+delete or limit to articles specifically about cycle racing the only way to fix this? DexDor (talk) 06:38, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

@DexDor: The nomination said I propose removing the cycle racing cat tag from all the articles that aren't specifically about cycle racing - which is what I attempted to do. While some people supported deleting these categories entirely, I didn't see consensus for that. The French category has a lot of articles like Col du Petit Ballon, which is a road that was on the Tour de France once (so possibly shouldn't be in such a category), but there isn't any other content in that article. If there's a coherent reason to remove those types of articles, I don't see the CFD discussion as preventing that. power~enwiki (π, ν) 19:27, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

A quick clarification, please. In your view, has the closure been implemented already, or is it still a work in progress? If the latter, I would suggest listing the categories at WP:CFD/W/M so that they can be properly purged. I still see a lot of articles about landforms (mountains, hills, mountain passes, etc.) that are being trivially categorized because they happen to be on a cycle racing routing. Thanks, -- Black Falcon (talk) 05:48, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

@Black Falcon: I don't plan to do any more. As mentioned earlier, I don't see a good way to handle articles like Col du Petit Ballon as part of the close - the entirety of the article's content is about cycling up the mountain. power~enwiki (π, ν) 19:01, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

Deleting my edit request on GoogleEdit

@AnthonyLovesWikis: The directions say: This template must be followed by a complete and specific description of the request, that is, specify what text should be removed and a verbatim copy of the text that should replace it. "Please change X" is not acceptable and will be rejected; the request must be of the form "please change X to Y". This means a SHORT SUMMARY of the specific change requested, not pasting the entire article on the talk page twice. power~enwiki (π, ν) 21:31, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Notification of AFDEdit

Hiya, you were previously involved with the article KC International Airlines. Just wanted to know I had nominated the article for deletion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/KC International Airlines (2nd nomination). Please voice your opinions there. --Tyw7 (🗣️ Talk) — If (reply) then (ping me) 16:19, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

revert at AN/I - taking your word for itEdit

I'll take your word for it that it would work against me, which, if true, is sad. But it kind of makes my point: no matter what I do or say people with a dispute history with me will find a way to interpret it in a negative way against me. Anyway, for the record, I had and still have the option to revert your revert of my friendly proposals, but, for the sake of community peace I'm choosing not to, for what it's worth. I just wish people would do the same with respect to proposals against me. --В²C 21:33, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

If you were proposing one boomerang it might be productive. Proposing 3 (with "not a sanction" language that nobody will take well) is certain to go badly. power~enwiki (π, ν) 21:34, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
I just want people to either engage with me collegially, or ignore me. That's how I try to deal with others. I actually thought proposing such reminders for three different people would be better received than just focusing on one. Frankly, I'd like to see the community support similar reminders for quite a few others. Anyway, I'm not going to pursue this approach any further. Thanks. --В²C 21:53, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
