Hoo man: Sorry for the second request, but we'd like to update the name to "Wiki Playlist" to avoid using the "Wikipedia" trademark. Other than the name, this request is exactly the same:

The main page should be locked-IP vandals and spambots (other than reverts of these edits) keep blanking, vandalising and spamming.-- 11:14, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Please contact the local sysops. It doesn't seem very urgent though. --MF-W 16:13, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Thank you! It would be good if some users will look after Abkhaz Wikipedia. Ilya Drakonov (talk) 15:18, 21 February 2016 (UTC).
Oh, actually this anonim is bothering us in other wiki's aswell: Belorussian wiki, Ossetian wiki, etc. Ilya Drakonov (talk) 15:27, 21 February 2016 (UTC).

As far as I can see, an abusefilter is not needed for now. Just two pages (one of them was recreated) have been created and they were deleted & protected by a local admin. Matiia (talk) 04:13, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Move Flow page

Status:    Locally handled

I have a problem. I started using Flow at 11 September, 2015 by request at mw. But when I want to cancel it now, there's something wrong that I can't move the previous page. Is there anybody could move User_talk:Cosine02 to User_talk:Cosine02/2, then move User_talk:Cosine02/存档 1 to User_talk:Cosine02? Thank you. --Stang 11:50, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

I get the same error that, presumably you do "The "Create Flow boards in any location" permission is required to move a Flow board." We'll need to add it to the permission set so Stewards can do it, but the permission needs to be assigned to a local zhwiki group(s) too if the intention is for all editors to be able to move these pages. I don't know anything about Flow so this may not be the right way to go about things. Maybe if @Legoktm: is around to comment? QuiteUnusual (talk) 13:44, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
There's an open discussion on Phabricator regarding this. Once it is concluded we can deal with your request - thanks. QuiteUnusual (talk) 10:09, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
Maybe steward could temporary gain yourself Flow-bot right... --Stang 15:06, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
There's no documentation about how to remove Flow from a talk page, and I haven't tested it so I better not take any risks and break your talk page. I requested this at phab:T125560. —MarcoAurelio 19:16, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks all of yours attention. This problem was fixed. I tried to enable and disable this feature at my preference, and found that a bot fixed it. :)
One more question: did a flow bother global rename?(I would like to rename my account. Thanks in advance. --Stang 02:58, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Nah, it should be okay. Matiia (talk) 04:49, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

A curious error

In el.wikipedia, when I try to delete a file that violates copyright rights, I get the message (in red letters!) "Σφάλμα κατά τη διαγραφή του αρχείου: Το αρχείο "mwstore://local-multiwrite/local-public/7/7b/Lasme.jpg" είναι σε κατάσταση ασυνέπειας εντός του εσωτερικού χώρου αποθήκευσης" which translates to "Error during file deletion: File "mwstore://local-multiwrite/local-public/7/7b/Lasme.jpg" is inconsistent in internal storage space". Will please a steward take a look on this situation? Thank you in advance. --Ttzavaras (talk) 00:15, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

I'm on my mobile so can't check, but there have been problems with file deletions recently on many wikis. Maybe you can find something related on Anyway, in problems like this stewards are unable to help. Stryn (talk) 00:25, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your answer. --Ttzavaras (talk) 09:16, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
It is Phab:T128096. It's going to be fixed soon I think. --Stryn (talk) 12:22, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
