Question for administrator[edit]

Do I have a "Kick Me" sign on my back?

This[1][2][3][4][5] feels like I am being harassed. X1\ (talk) 01:24, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

This doesn't appear to be a request for administrative action, so I'm closing the helpme template. If there's a specific administrative task that you need to be performed in relation to the above edits, please feel free to reinstate the request with more details.

Is there a list of what is considered an "administrative task"? X1\ (talk) 22:16, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Administrators/Tools lists the various additional things that administrators can do. Beyond that, we're just like every other editor here. Yunshui  23:07, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections[edit]

Guten Abend,

Do you understand that at Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, per page restrictions outlined in Template:Editnotices/Page/Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, you are not allowed to reinstate any edits that have been challenged? I have undone this and this revert of yours, which reinstated challenged [6][7] edits without talk page consensus and included violations of biographies of living persons policy either by citing court documents or stating Adam Schiff's unproved allegation in Wikipedia's voice.

Also, in this edit you reinstated challenged edits saying "I don't see consensus", when in fact, per page restrictions, you need consensus to reinstate challenged edits (see also WP:ONUS). Politrukki (talk) 20:45, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

@Politrukki: Why is this location the only place Template:Editnotices/Page/Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections is used? Not used at Talk:Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, for example? The creator of that Template also seemed to have been having some issues at the time of creation.
If you think that Template is valid, why did you put on my Talk page, and not at Talk:Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections?
Why are you writing in German on English wp?
PS, you have a curious Username: have you seen fi:Politrukki (redirects to "Komissaari (puna-armeija)"; En redirect of Commissar)? X1\ (talk) 20:57, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Normally there is no reason to link to an edit notice. Coffee logged the page restrictions and added proper editnotices to the article and talk page, but they apparently forgot to add an explanatory talk page notice, which is shown when someone is reading the talk page.
If you click an edit link at Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, you'll be reading instructions transcluded from Template:Editnotices/Page/Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, and if you edit the talk page, you'll see longer instructions transcluded from Template:Editnotices/Page/Talk:Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.
If you have read WP:AC/, you have already noticed that an editor may be sanctioned if they (a) are aware of DS and (b) violate page restrictions outlined in an editnotice. In other words, the talk page notice is not mandatory. I have asked Coffee to add a talk page notice to the talk page, but they have not responded.
"If you think that Template is valid, why did you put on my Talk page, and not at Talk:Timeline of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections?" – The talk page already has an editnotice. Even though any editor could also add {{American politics AE}} to the talk page as a notice, in order to avoid wikilawyering, it's better to leave it to an uninvolved administrator, and preferably to the administrator who imposed the restrictions.
"Why are you writing in German on English wp?" – For the same reason you did here?
"have you seen ..." – I have now. Interesting. And surprising. Thanks. Politrukki (talk) 06:35, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
Der Kommissar (see above), I see User:Coffee has been blocked / retired; in April. X1\ (talk) 20:00, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
Unless there is follow-up, I will assume this string is moot, and ignore. X1\ (talk) 20:01, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Corvinae moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Corvinae, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

A barnstar for you![edit]

You have almost always provided a helpful edit summary with your contributions to mainspace. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate that! –MJLTalk 21:19, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for noticing. Nothing like a good ES. Thank you for your vigilant contributions. X1\ (talk) 21:30, 3 May 2019 (UTC)


The Wayback machine [8] can be very useful, although it doesnt always work. If you see a dead url just pop it in; if the Wayback machine's bots have crawled it, you will get a list of past "snapshots" of the page. If you have a choice of dates, it's usually best to stay closest/just before the retrieval date of the original Wikipedia citation as page content can get updated or change. Re the Tom Elliot article, Wayback didnt have anything at all for the weekly review city page, so it came up blank, but it was easy enough to find another ref for the information. You can also save urls you want to use as refs there, which is also very handy if you suspect a page might get taken down or changed. There are other archive sites, but Wayback has the reputation for being the most reliable. Curdle (talk) 01:22, 15 May 2019 (UTC) Update- Look at WP:DEADLINK. I've used Archive is before too Curdle (talk) 03:28, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Standard notice refresher[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svgThis is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have shown interest in post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect. Any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or the page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.

June 2019[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been or will be reverted.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive. Continued disruptive editing may result in loss of editing privileges. The banner at the top of this talk page is dishonest for an editor who is apparently trying to re-open old disputes.

If you have a specific issue, rather than just asking me whether I want to stir up trouble, be specific. Robert McClenon (talk) 20:13, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

@Robert McClenon: see my comment at your talk page. X1\ (talk) 20:16, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
Threatening good faith editors who are fixing disruptive edits is not right and clearly violates AGF. Instead, warn the one making the disruptive edit. -- BullRangifer (talk) 21:12, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
