IP had been disruptively vandalizing enwq and 17 others. (IP has been doing this since 2012 I think) The IP has been back at vandalizing and making disruptive edits again, so a global block may need to be put into place. Eurodyne (talk) 01:52, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Global block for sock puppets of Fête

Status:    Done

Fête (talk · contribs) is high disruptive contributor. Indefinitely blocked on fr.wiktionary for false informations insertions (concern lot of suspicious quebecer pronunciation of words), stubborn to edit on subject which can't handle (for example he had create on Commons project numerous "quebecer" pronounciation audio file despite the fact he is a native cantonese locutor. Result is tons of audio files suppose to illustrate the french quebecer accent but which in real that just are bad imitations from a cantonese locutor with a strong a chinese accent File:Qc-joyeuses fêtes.ogg. We absolutely can't use this audio to illustrate quebecer accent but nevermind Fête does it. It's like if me, a french locutor, I live in Australia and try to imitate aussies accent on english word because i like that accent but of result will be just english word with strong french accent...), severals edit wars, no dialogue, ignore the comments/remarks/warnings, spam questions & request about quebec pronounciation to Quebecer users (already one of them left our project cause of him, an example of that harassement here. He does it with all of our Canadian users), create severals sock puppets to bypass the blockage. Nowadays, he still continue to disrupt our project with a myriad of IP adress, we suppose he use proxy.
He was block on fr.wikipedia and en.wiktionary aswell. Try always to bypass the blockage and migrated to some others project to continue to contribute about Quebecer prononciation without any real knowledge about it (by the way another proof of harassement on zh-yue.wikipedia this time). So yes block his sock puppet will help preventing him to disrupt Wikimedia community again (even if he can do it by IP). Thanks. V!v£ l@ Rosière /Murmurer…/ 13:53, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Global lock for Ezasultio47

Status:    Done

Cross-wiki spambot. In addition to the blocks on Wikidata and MediaWiki.org, the user has also been triggering the local abuse filters on Wikipedia too.--Jasper Deng (talk) 06:36, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Global unlock for Google9999

Status:    Not done

Hi I was blocked in December 2012 since then I have created some accounts. I have an account on mediawiki I was blocked for creating lots of templates but I was also blocked because I also have google9999 account and that was blocked global but I haven't edited much on other languges I may have edited but not as much and it has been a few months to a year ago since I last edited on different languges a lot I was blocked because I was editing on a lot of languges. I would ask that I be unblocked or if I carnt can I have permission to use my other account which I can use on mediawiki please. --Paladox2017 (talk) 21:23, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

See background at mw:User talk:Paladox2017#Unblock. Also, note that this user also owns the locked User:Paladox2014 account. Jackmcbarn (talk) 21:29, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Ok and If I wont get unblocked could I use my other account on mediawiki. Paladox2017 (talk) 21:48, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Account locks are not done for users of good reputation, so just appearing here asking for an unlock, without addressing the reasons for the lock isn't going to be productive. I doubt that you were locked solely for creating lots of templates, as such would be more likely to be a local blocking issue. So please go back to first principles, address why you were locked, and why now is different and the accounts should be unlocked.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:17, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
When addressing this issue, please identify why we should unlock an account, especially in light of additional and subsequents accounts getting locally blocked. Noting adding other accounts identified to user

There is a more complete list here, but I think Paladox2017 deserves to have his lock reviewed. I usually saw his edits as good faith, if misguided or unneeded. There was a previous discussion on SN about this user. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:42, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
In my opinion, his behavior now is no different than it was when his old accounts were locked. In fact, it was a mass-template-copying spree from just today on mw: that led me to realize these accounts were the same person. Jackmcbarn (talk) 23:58, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
I don't think unlocking is a good idea due to the disruption caused. --Rschen7754 02:47, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi I was blocked because I had an older account that was blocked globally could I be unblocked localy on media wiki please even if this account is still locked I have changed slightly. I have now mostly been editing mediawiki I have not been editing much of other wikipedias which was why I was blocked. 151.225.136.51 10:54, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
I also have been editing mostly in English which was also another reason I was blocked. 151.225.136.51 10:57, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
You've only changed "slightly"? That's not very encouraging. --Rschen7754 13:26, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
I don't see that we need to unlock the account, you can edit from the existing account. I would like for any community that unblocks existing account to place a restriction on you working in the template namespace. While you may have the best intentions, your lack of familiarity and lack of caution and mindfulness working in that area is both troublesome and problematic.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:39, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi but I have to request either an unblock or ask if I can use my other account because my other account will be blocked globaly if I doint ask. I was blocked on mediawiki localy because I had this account that was locked globaly. So I am asking can I edit under my other account if I limit the edits to not many template please. 151.225.136.51 17:13, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Can I use my new account the one that is currently blocked the paladox2017 account even if this one is block because I asked to be unlocked on mediawiki and he said to ask here first since I had another account locked. 151.225.136.51 20:30, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
I am unaware of any policy at Mediawiki that prevents multiple accounts, nor that allows accounts to be blocked solely due to the existence of a locked account, hence why my confusion about your request. So this is not done, and doesn't require to be done and I am going to put further comment onto your user talk page.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:06, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
