Hello, this is Scott Stapp. Please unblock me from Wiki. Can you also explain why?

I don't see that the IP address is blocked, Special:GlobalBlockList/ Would you please supply the full block message that you get when you try to edit. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 15:52, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Links were removed to protect the user. Please do NOT make an account name like that again, for your own safety. --Rschen7754 02:25, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
  Not done. Not a single good edit. If you want to come back without vandalizing, feel free to do so. But I don't see the point of regaining access to a long blocked account. Elfix 15:36, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Global lock for Peter Isotalo

Status:    Not done

Cross-wiki POV pushing (including Commons) against a specific image he personally doesn't like. He opened wide-spread edit wars on almost all wikis where he's contributing, see the log of global contributions. He's operating by systematic violating the CONSENSUS pillar (he acts without discussing and also against a decision taken on Commons on that specific image after a regular discussion). He also uses arguable motivations to his actions, in one case stating that "the image is ugly and ridicolous", in other cases stating that the image (on Commons since 2001) is a "copyright infringement", although Commons reached a different conclusion on this point. Blocked on for a short time, warned on several other wikis, the local block policies are not enough to stop his actions. He's very insisting, arriving to write to Jimbo Wales's page to support his personal position against that specific image. --L736E (talk) 09:19, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

He is not permanently blocked on any projects and does not fit the criteria for a global ban. QuiteUnusual (talk) 09:51, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
I had to find out about this request by myself. Note that L736E is following up this request with a counter-campaign on English Wikipedia[1] along with Bramfab[2] (who blocked me without warning at Italian Wikipedia for 1 week for reverting his own unexplained edits). Attempts have been made to engage in discussion at Commons,[3] but have have been ignored. Numerous of L736E have been quite vindictive and are really just auto-reverts of anything I do.[4][5][6][7][8][9]
This is a pretty nasty petition from an involved party, not concern for article content. Interwiki actions are apparently only a concern when I'm doing it.
Peter Isotalo (talk) 16:41, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
The lock was never going to happen as it is out of scope. Your continuing the discussion is also out of scope, and you should follow up about the lack of process where it is appropriate, not here.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:15, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Global lock for Nigger

Status:    Not done

This is an old account, and should've been locked long ago. I don't want this account to give any user who sees it the impression that this racist slur is acceptable to be used in a username or anywhere else on any WMF project. INeverCry 17:52, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

There is no global account for that username, so it will need to be handled on a per-project basis (or after finalization!) Ajraddatz (talk) 17:57, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
That's too bad. I'll try the per-project approach, but I hope you or someone else will put this on a to-do list, as trying to explain what a disgusting and offensive slur this is to other language wiki admins will be extremely difficult if even possible at all without confusion and problems. Time to look for some English speaking admins on the projects where it's live. I won't be too surprised if I end up getting myself blocked in the process. INeverCry 18:31, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Not worth the effort of chasing it down. It is quiescent. You have done more to highlight the matter than letting it rest.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:17, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
I was bothered and offended by comming across a racial slur name that should be visibly kicked off of any project it's on, not just as a username violation, but to show that no WMF community accepts racism, even when it's been overlooked or missed for a while. I was simply doing what I felt was right. INeverCry 22:05, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
And your initial reaction is understandable, your latter reactions are not. For old accounts like this, they are trolls, so suggesting going around all the wikis asking for a block is reacting to trolls.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:29, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Please lock my wikipedia account global, I don't won't to do anything on this page in the future. If you don't wan't to lock my account global, I have to spam coincidentally the wikipedia... --Heubergen (talk) 12:02, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
    First, you do not necessarily qualify (although I take your promise of future vandalism seriously). But second, you will not be able to easily apply to get it back, as you won't be able to log in. Pundit (talk) 12:20, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't wan't to get it back in the future! I will never ever go back to wikipedia. So you can lock and ban my account now.--Heubergen (talk) 12:23, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
So I start to spam the follow wikipedia projects: commons, eo, bar, ru, meta and wikidata. I really hope, that is enough to lock me permanently and lifelong. (link to show my last edits)--Heubergen (talk) 13:04, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
