map-bms administrator going wild?

I'd like to call your attention to the actions of the administrator Arifys on map-bms:. The user is blocking users without serious reasons to do so IMHO. He's blocked @.anaconda:, a long-term user and former steward for "innapropriate username", he's also blocked @6AND5: for the same reason, and @Xqbot: for "inserting false information" (all translations given by google translate). He's also blocked @Comalur: and has revision-deleted the log entries for no reason. He's also blocked @Razr Nation: for an edit he did on 2013. This clueless use of the administrator tools are concerning to me. Thanks. —MarcoAurelio 21:46, 20 January 2016 (UTC)[]

Another questionable indefinite block, even without a block reason is that of @Gonsal: log. I'm also providing block log links for .anaconda, Xqbot, Razr Nation, 6AND5 and Comalur. Also, he's doing namespace translation locally when it should be done at While the last is not a reason to revoke his temporary admin access, the other actions he's taken makes me feel he should not continue to have access to the tools until he understands what they should be used for. —MarcoAurelio 21:59, 20 January 2016 (UTC)[]
Definitely worth a removal. --Vituzzu (talk) 22:21, 20 January 2016 (UTC)[]
Further, I have removed the blocks of @Xqbot, .anaconda, and 6AND5: as clearly abusive and made without any care. Razr Nation's block was temporary and expired. Left others for consideration. —MarcoAurelio 22:23, 20 January 2016 (UTC)[]
Excuse me I can't speak english laguange well.
At map bms have a regulation which most of username is not innapropiarte example username to :promote, same system, for making the all user to promote and name vandal. I understand for used his tool. Thakns --Arifys (talk) 22:25, 20 January 2016 (UTC)[]
@Arifys: Even if true, the blocks I've just removed are totally wrong. You've even blocked a user for an edit he made years ago, an edit which was absolutelly correct. I can not find any wrongdoing of the users I've just unblocked to deserve such a measure. I ask you to please control the use of the tools you've been given. —MarcoAurelio 22:29, 20 January 2016 (UTC)[]
Yes thanks for suggestion

Re: Notice of removal of global bot status

Re [1], I note that the policy was seemingly not respected: I was not warned before the removal. Nemo 09:05, 27 January 2016 (UTC)[]

Also, all of these messages sent seem to be broken. Perhaps someone is willing to fix that. --Vogone (talk) 09:19, 27 January 2016 (UTC)[]
There was a problem with the massmessage system. I though I send it over before removal took place, so I sent it later. Besides, there's no timeframe in the policy so the "before" can be even a second before removal takes place. Most of the removals Savh and me did were from bots inactive from years ago, some also infringed global bot policy by performing actions using global bot flag for which global bot flag is not intended. Regarding the broken message, yes, I'm sorry; I got confused with includeonly tags. —MarcoAurelio 11:17, 27 January 2016 (UTC)[]
As a side note, I am of course willing to re-review and in case of any mistake, restore the bits. It'll help to clarify the policy on how much time do we need to wait before removal can take place. —MarcoAurelio 11:42, 27 January 2016 (UTC)[]


Please look this discussion - User talk:Taketa#Request (2), there are other opinions?--6AND5 (talk) 21:07, 23 January 2016 (UTC)[]

Would you please not ping all stewards? I am sure it isn't something that needs all our attention. If you feel it is something that the wider community has to look into, feel free to open an RFC. Savhñ 20:10, 28 January 2016 (UTC)[]
I don't know what to do, I'm there about me not working is not what law, what to do? I say, agree to all the condition (within the Wikipedia), only clear the block, but not removed block, is that fair?--6AND5 (talk) 20:29, 28 January 2016 (UTC)[]
This is the law by which it was decided that the administrator having a conflict with the user, can't block it -(Wikipedia/Poll/Block)- this is for the stewards doesn't mean anything?--6AND5 (talk) 23:23, 28 January 2016 (UTC)[]
