Help! Help! Help! Gujarati Wikipedia ProjectEdit

Sir, please help! some administrators of Gujarati Wikipedia project are doing injustice to me. Together with their friends they are behaving biased with common editors.

Take some strong actions against Gujarati Wikipedia admins.

Help, global blockEdit

Hi, please help, I have tried to edit Wikipedia from this IP (this IP belongs to a internet cafe/institution), only to find out that it is not only blocked on Wikipedia, but also globally blocked on all Wikimedia projects. Can anyone please provide assistance? This IP is shared by many people, as it is an internet cafe/institution, and someone else has either made disruptive edits and/or has disrupted the peace. This is very urgent so if anyone can help resolve this as soon as possible, that would be greatly appreciated. 182.255.96.130 04:09, 27 May 2022 (UTC)

Please use Wikimedia Foundation Unblock Ticket System. Email them your situation. EstrellaSuecia (talk) 16:36, 17 September 2022 (UTC)

Diff blog: LanguageEdit

I subscribe to the Diff blog. How can I subscribe only to the English language version of the Diff blog? Finell (talk) 19:52, 13 September 2022 (UTC)

I don't fully understand what you mean? Language settings are in Preferences, top right corner besides your username. EstrellaSuecia (talk) 16:32, 17 September 2022 (UTC)

My userpageEdit

Hello, I want to add a text to my global userpage but when I want to save the page I get this error- what can I do about it? This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Antivandalism (local) 'N Tüdelmors (talk) 15:52, 17 September 2022 (UTC)

Did you use any words that can be considered offensive in any common language? Or blacklisted links to commercial websites? Otherwise I have no idea about this. EstrellaSuecia (talk) 16:31, 17 September 2022 (UTC)
No offensive language (except it was written in German language haha), no links. The problem may be that the text is too long? It has 1092 words, 6952 characters including spaces.--'N Tüdelmors (talk) 18:02, 17 September 2022 (UTC)

Reference to an article contains a trojan virus. Other references are no longer viable. The link to the article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Lady_of_Spring_Bank_Abbey BEWARE. Bluejay99 (talk) 17:45, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

WikilawsuitsEdit

I don’t think this project is altogether comprehensible but the creator keeps debating that assessment and re-opening it after I close it as invalid. Does anyone else have an opinion on this? Dronebogus (talk) 00:30, 3 November 2022 (UTC)
