I'm waiting because pywikibot is broken due to API changes in the login part. I've tried with OAuth, but it gives me errors everywhere. I'll continue trying, but this will happen soon. —MarcoAurelio 15:14, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

Report concerning No1lovesu

  • No1lovesu (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log • GUC)Reasons: Among wiki version wuu, zh-yue, gan, zh-classical, zh, en, fr, ja, de, continued 3RR, resulting in "itself be banned"(in ja version) and "3RR page protections." In zh, wuu version, he also often different registered users 3RR. The most exaggerated in wuu version, with registered users 3RR cause "3RR page protection," but at the end of protection is, 3RR happen again. For the page of 汉服, zh version in 2014 had banned him. It seems that he is not going to improve their behavior, and even the poor "Edit habit" to all other versions of wiki.
Other matters Supplementary
According to user 飞贼燕子 said: the user in the three years to continuously monitor and cancel the edit page from other users
(Observe his edit history, may be the 24-hour surveillance page).
Also according to my own observations, in his editorial history of abuse seems to find him a puppet of the track, but still not enough to observe as evidence, so only as a supplement. 核斯 (talk) 17:37, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

Block query

I have just blocked A sockpuppet of you (talk · contribs) at Wikispecies, for username reasons. I'm not sure whether that should be a global block, and if so whether this is the forum to arrange it. Please act as you see fit. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:38, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

I've locked the account globally. You can report these to SRG in the future. Thanks! -- Ajraddatz (talk) 18:13, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
