"I hope Bsadowski1 gets hit by a semi truck"[change source]

Please block "I hope Bsadowski1 gets hit by a semi truck" as they are a sock of that same person. Computer Fizz (talk) 02:50, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Oh wait, they're already blocked. please QD their talk page as it is vandalism. Computer Fizz (talk) 02:52, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: The page itself was not vandalism, even if the user name was bad. I deleted it as created by an indeffed user. For future reference, this is not the place to request qds. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:59, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
I know, but it started out as a different request then changed to a QD, so that kinda slipped by me. Sorry 'bout that. Computer Fizz (talk) 03:01, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protection requested[change source]

Please semi-protect the article paintball for a brief period of time. Two IPs and a new (non-auto-confirmed) editor have been arguing about which spam links to add to the article. Etamni | ✉   13:31, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

YesY Yes, I had thought about this this yesterday. Macdonald-ross (talk) 15:13, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

More semi-protection requested[change source]

One or more IP's have been changing signed comments at User talk:Eddybrad. While it is possible that it is simply the (mostly inactive) user making changes while logged out -- indeed, the style of the edits looks similar -- it is not clear that this is the case. The user is auto-confirmed, so semi-protection of the talk page will not unduly impact the user, while providing protection against changes made to signed comments by one or more anonymous IP users.

Not really worth a protection, imo. -Barras talk 02:50, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Accuracy of content dealing with 38th and 39th parliaments in the Ontario Legislature[change source]

Just read your info on this and the references to the official opposition leader in both the 38th and 39th parliaments are incorrect. I was the opposition leader for a good chunk of the 38th and around 2 years for the 39th. You have listed John Tory in that role. For much of the 38th John Tory was not a member of the legislature and for the 39th he was NEVER a member and hence, COULD not be leader of the opposition. That was my job and hopefully you will consider correcting those references. Thank you.

I think this was meant for the English WP. I've made a change there. Debouch (talk) 01:37, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
