Global unlock for D.A. Borgdorff

Status:    Not done

For Reasons, see Discussion with colleagues user talk:Beetstra and user talk:Pieter2 besides a Template on my Talk Page, also in *history* here and e.g. there as well. Thanks in advance: D.A. Borgdorff -- 09:43, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Previous request was turned down in March (see [1]) and I don't see any convincing new reason why it should be unlocked/unblocked this time. - Robotje 13:26, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
No comments anymore (been slated, so: {{<!-|.|->}} removal) dAb as per 17:28, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
To have the previous decision overruled I think reason(s) should be given that should be both
  • new (not mentioned in the previous request)
  • convincing.
Please start by explaining what new reasons you have. - Robotje 07:24, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Because curiously MM's friend user:Darkoneko invisualized my Talk-page by "Revision as of 11:31, 21 July 2010 (view source) Darkoneko (talk | contribs) (Replaced content with '{{indef}}') ... Newer edit →" ... I'll unfortunately have to introduce a *Permanent Link* op.cit.: Yours Truly D.A. Borgdorff - MASc. PE FRIEN per IP 11:52, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
So that is the only new reason why you think you should be unlocked. Wow! I'm puzzled why that should be a reason to unlock you anyway, but OK, maybe I miss something so I hope you can clarify it step by step. First it might help if you can answer the following three questions:
  1. Who is MM?
  2. Why are you so sure MM is a friend of Darkoneko?
  3. the steward Darkoneko replaced the content of your talk-page by a indef-template (causing the text "This user is indefinitely blocked from editing Meta" and some more info to be displayed). Why would that be a reason to unlock you?
Best regards, Robotje 13:48, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Some possible Maine Coon-relations probably ?/... And thank You so much for regarding me = {dAb} kindly while I remain: D.A. Borgdorff always per 14:06, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
How can you expect sysops/stewards to unlock you based on that 'new reason' if you cannot give a serious reply to those questions? - Robotje 14:16, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

I am sorry but, the more I read this, the less I understand this request; I'm tending to decline it. It is requested that the requester provides a solid and reasonable rationale to consider this request, otherwise I think that this request is not going to be granted. --dferg ☎ talk 15:34, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Note: I blocked for a week for this edit. As such, he will not be able to continue discussion here via that IP. Tiptoety talk 17:41, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

This user has a long record of disrupting edit patterns on several wikis (see also the previous SRG discussion) and I would very strongly advise not to grant this request, since there is not a single indication that he has any intention to change his ways. His responses above make that quite clear. Locking him is in my opinion actually one of the very best things that has ever been done for the Wikimedia community. Wutsje 11:20, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

  Not done, per lack of consensus and of reasons to unblock. Situation has not changed since March, further requests will only be considered valid if new reasons appear. --თოგო (D) 11:36, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

    • Very strange: in-stead of answering the obligated template request on my *talk page*, You have deleted or (stewards: by oversighting?) erased this talk-page of mine, even declaring me being a suckpocket of myself, where I however allways was and still am the only D.A. Borgdorff on this planet. As highly estimated with kind regards to being sincerely signed: user:D.A. Borgdorff per 15:04, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Unblock request

Status:    Not done

Hi there. I'm trying to request an unblock. I was blocked globally for vandalism, and I did not mean to to it. I promise not to vandalize the Wikisites again. Thank you. 14:46, 21 July 2010 (MST)

Blanking several pages on several pages including on-going discussions and "I did not mean to to it (vandalism)". Hardly acceptable imo and I recommend to turn down this request. --Aphaia 23:58, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Declined. --dferg ☎ talk 15:51, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

block two addresses of ja:LTA:GRIMM

Status:    Done

persistent vandal, note that zhwiki edits from are revdeled, and wikispecies ones are rollbacked, both as vandalism. Relevant info on ja:LTA:GRIMM. is now detected on ja only, and all blocked, but edit patterns suggest both are likely a same editor. --Aphaia 04:45, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

  Done for 2 weeks. --dferg ☎ talk 16:01, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Global lock for Tyciol

Status:    Not done

Per the discussion Commons:Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Blocks & protections#Paedophile_bans_from_en.wp, this log, and this edit, this user was "Emergency-banned for activities detrimental to Wikipedia's reputation" on English Wikipedia by the English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee October 29, 2009. The user is also indefinitely blocked on Wikimedia Commons, English Wikiversity,, Simple English Wikipedia, and Simple English Wiktionary. No doubt the activities were also detrimental to the Wikimedia Foundation's reputation. Discussion of the user's blockage here on Meta has been at User talk:Sue Gardner#An_unblock_on_Commons.   — Jeff G. ツ 19:39, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

I would like to point out here that Tyciol was banned from commons for being a troll rather than a paedophile, and further that the meta discussion is not so much a discussion as a rant by a user who has also been systematically banned from many other projects as a troll. -mattbuck (Talk) 00:22, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
If this is anything at all it would be some form of OFFICE action in practice. If there is proof of the accusations (I could "bold" every word there) then the Foundation ought to approve such a lock. If not then legally it would be very unwise I'd imagine. Just my 0.01 --Herby talk thyme 08:30, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
  Not done, locking isn't a way of globally banning people, and we have no policy allowing us to do so. He is obviously not a cross-wiki vandal with 15 000 edits on enwiki over 4 years before being blocked there. If the Office wants to do anything, that is up to them. Until such time as an office action is performed, or a global banning-policy is created, it's up to the communities on each wiki how they want to handle this. Laaknor 12:39, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Another one @ This has been going on for days now (see archive of requests here). It seems like someone's sitting somewhere with nothing better to do... There might be some range to check. Just saying... --Seb az86556 18:47, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Global lock for PauloHelene

Status:    Done

Cross-wiki vandalism (again). He is making several Korean translations for meta, usability and so on, but all his work is machin-translated and it is just yet another Lorem ipsum. (I suspect he even don't speak Korean.) I and other many users had alerted to stop it, but he is still disrupting.

He had used several sockpuppets, but they're (as far as I know) locked. However, he is still using several IP until now. Global lock for his main account, and global block for his IPs are needed. (Should I request for block IP above separately?) Also, massive deletion for his work is needed. (I've tried to request speedy deletion, but there are too many machine-translated articles for one account and it is hard to trace multi-IP contribution.) Please see Steward_requests/Global/2009-11#User:PauloHelene and Requests_for_comment/Ban_User:PauloHelene_globally for further information. --Klutzy 02:39, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

  • I agree. He vandalized with his numerous sockpuppet and erased or added some inaccurate fact in articles. However, he does not feel sorry what he did and keep disrupting throughout Wikipedia, meta, etc. so he needs to be blocked globally. -- Shyoon1 02:52, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Definitely agree. His translations have been giving bad influences to Korean Wikipedia pages. -- 02:53, 2 July 2010 (UTC) - My mention. I did not log in. --Naturehead 02:54, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
  • PauloHelene make vast damage on site notice of Korean Wikipedia again, and again. At this time, he/her translated the English sentence into Korean for [Releases/Default Switch], but the Korean sentence means only nonsense. Here are PauloHelene's sentence; "위키백과 것이 느껴지세요?". Korean reader can not understand this sentence, and get some feel of disharmony, because it has no meaning and non complete sentence. An Korean wikipedian repaired this sentence, but we wait the cash memory changing. Please, ban this user for do not any contribution of site notice no more. 03:40, 2 July 2010 (UTC) Sign again - Jjw 03:51, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

    Please stop, Betalph, This thread is irrelevant with you. And, it is fact that you are banned from ko-wp due to sock puppetry. Best regards. – Kwj2772 (msg) 08:58, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Comment - User got indef. banned here on meta and seeing the cross-wiki history of this user I would not oppose a global lock. Enough is enough I think. --dferg ☎ talk 14:30, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I think this can probably be closed as done. There is sufficient evidence to support a global lock, especially given the accounts most recent local block. Tiptoety talk 06:08, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
