Hello Stewards, i feel that Born4People is abusing multiple accounts and sockpuppetry. Please investigate deeply on this matter. Regards —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Community member comment. Multiple accounts and abuse is usually managed by local communities rather than globally by stewards. If you think that there is abuse please take it to a community and to be specific about the abuse. Communities can escalate to stewards if they are unable to manage it, or they see it is a crosswiki issue.

JuniorX2's User Rights

Hello Stewards, before global lock I have some user rights including global ip block extempt, autopatrolled and importer in maiwiki and newiki. could u please grant me those rights back ? —JuniorX2 ChatHello! 00:24, 28 December 2016 (UTC)[]

The rights on mai- and newiki were locally removed and have to be restored by local admins therefore. We can give you IP block exemption back if you still need it though. --MF-W 00:37, 28 December 2016 (UTC)[]
@MF-Warburg: yeah ! I still need ip block extempt and pinging @Biplab Anand: for newiki and maiwiki. —JuniorX2 ChatHello! 00:55, 28 December 2016 (UTC)[]

Fix required at angWS

Would a steward please fix the main page at Old English Wikisource, either create s:ang:Main Page as #redirect [[Hēafodsīde]] or move s:ang:Hēafodsīde to be the main page, leaving a redirect. It seems there has been a nomenclature change at some point. <shrug>  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:41, 4 December 2016 (UTC)[]

Grr, the issue is weird "Main Page" works, but s:ang: does not, the link there to s:ang:Hēafodtramet which is defined as main page does not work (and I cannot remember where are all the settings). There is only one modified Mediawiki message, so that is not the issue.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:00, 4 December 2016 (UTC)[]
Fixed. --MF-W 01:03, 5 December 2016 (UTC)[]
Localized name for main page was changed from Hēafodsīde to Hēafodtramet in 2013, which means after the project has been closed (2007), and apparently since then nobody bothered to move the main page (currently located at Hēafodsīde) to the most recent localized name which is Hēafodtramet. So moving Hēafodsīde to Hēafodtramet with leaving redirect behind is the solution.

Гншшп at Rusin Wikipedia

User:Гншшп at w:rue: produced a large amount of vandalism. The account must be speedily blocked since it continues; I will try to revert the contributions in the meanwhile, but at least w:rue:Лугандон must be deleted as vandalism.--Ymblanter (talk) 12:27, 17 December 2016 (UTC)[]
