A bit curious by now

Hi Alaa, did anything come of the issue I brought to your attention in #wikimedia-stewards? Thanks, SanderO (talk) 22:44, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Hello @SanderO:. @TonyBallioni: can you take a look at this please? --Alaa :)..! 00:22, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
@SanderO: I’ve semi-protected en:Wendell Brown because of the obvious single issue accounts. None of these accounts seem to have edited that recently so there is not much admins will normally do. If you have concerns about other articles that have a conflict of interest/promotional editing you can make a report at en:WP:COIN. If you have concerns about active accounts socking on en, you can leave me a message at my talk page there or here on meta.
Thanks for the ping, A’laa. Always great to run into you :) TonyBallioni (talk) 00:43, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, both of you. My itch with it was not the original though, but more with the 15 new users that made translations of it in 15 wikipedias. SanderO (talk) 05:18, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Request for Global unblock

Hi Ala; i am globally blocked abusing global rename request feature since May 2017 i tried only 2 times this feature but now i am blocked please unblock my account so i can contribute globally again. Thanks, Regards Anna Velli 16:07, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

First of all, you made more than 11 global rename request. Also, your main account locked also, and you are consider as a long term abuse user. Sorry --Alaa :)..! 20:12, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

@Ala; i will never disturb you again and never request for user name change please give me last chance so i contribute to wikipedia. 05:28, 16 June 2018 (UTC)


As you issued the original global lock on him, can you say what got Elbasyouny (who has never been blocked on any wiki) globally locked for "Cross-wiki abuse" and eventually a WMF ban or does it involve private stuff like CU data? My biggest suspicion as of now is paid editing. 18:06, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

As wrote here: "Queries about actions made with this account should be directed to ca wikimedia org.", so you can send and ask them   --Alaa :)..! 18:09, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
Just say why you at least THOUGHT he was committing abuse. or, if it is inappropriate you can email 20:22, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
(Talk page follower) Stewards are not authorized to talk about any details of global ban by WMF, whether they know something or not. It is deemed 'nonpublic information' under the Confidentality Agreement all stewards signs. — regards, Revi 21:07, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
I am very aware. I myself could be struck under one any day. Also, I already know the circumstances of every single other one 21:35, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

reverts of advertisement on

Please help reverting the advertisement on This edit is of good faith. The link leads the readers to the gambling site (possibly hacked) and the text is an advertisement for the gambling site. However, the edit got reverted by a local rollbacker. I have left a message for the rollbacker already. There may be some misunderstandings. So please help with it. Thank you.--J.Wong 10:11, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Ehsan Jami

Dear Alaa,

I wanted to leave a message on your arwiki talk page but I am not autoconfirmed, so here I am. I tried ask help at #wikipedia-ar as well, but unfortunately I did not find anyone. If you have a little time, please check Ehsan Jami (Q983182)'s arwiki article: a user imported many times that he is dead based on the Arabic article. On other wikis, he is still alive; could you check the source of his death? Best regards, Bencemac (talk) 17:36, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Hello @Bencemac:, I removed all wrong information about his death, also I see that the user removed it from wikidata by himself. If you think that Ehsan Jami (Q983182) should be protected tell me please. Thanks  . Best --Alaa :)..! 21:25, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Blocks for proxies

Is this term a joke? The common practice is to block definitely abusive static-IP hosts for years, usually for 5 years or more. By the way, the whole range (ST) may be problematical. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:18, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Next steps for the wish “confirmation prompt for the rollback link”

Hello, a while ago you participated in a feedback round about a proposal how accidental clicks on the rollback link could be avoided. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and ideas!
Looking at the feedback and the rollback situation in different wikis, the development team decided how to approach this wish: As a default, most wikis won’t have a confirmation. But users who wish to have one, can enable it in their preferences, which will add a confirmation prompt to the rollback link on the diff page and on the list pages. The prompt won’t be a pop-up, but an inline prompt like for the thanks confirmation. You can read more about the planned solution and what influenced this decision on the project page. -- Best, Johanna Strodt (WMDE) (talk) 09:41, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Vandal at viwikiquote: request to ban IP range

Thank you for your ban of the IP indefinitely in As it is a dynamic IP, he will come back. Please help by banning the IP for a week instead, and release the indefinitely ban of that IP.

Hello @Mehman97: Global IP block exemptions not affect local IP blocks and local rangeblocks; for which a local IP block exemption is needed, and it allows the user to bypass global IP blocks, global rangeblocks and TOR exit node blocks.

IP exemption

Hi, I asked for global IP exemption months ago. I think I have this right now but I can not make changes in English Wikipedia or Commons while using VPN. What could be the reason for this? It says "this ip is forbidden." --Hedda Gabler (talk) 18:52, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello @Hedda Gabler:, yes, you have GIPBE, but you should notice that GIPBE does not affect local IP blocks and local rangeblocks; for which a local IP block exemption is needed, so you should ask for local IP exemption in enwiki and commons, and as you've the global one, I think it'd be easier to take the local one --Alaa :)..! 19:54, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

The reason I was banned on Turkish Wikipedia

Hello. I now realized @HakanIST: alleged I am banned due to sock puppet account. That is not the case, the reason I was banned for was objecting to un-encyclopedic content on Wikipedia, now another superviser came and we co-analyzed it and turned out I am right. The article is updated based on my points and objections. Nothing is done as a sanction on those who abused their power. They banned me for no reason. I asked @Sakhalinio: over and over again on why he banned me, which of my actions violated any of Wikipedia rules and he did not state anything. If you understand Turkish you can check his talk page on Meta. He does not state any reason, they just ban me for opposing their political agenda and that is all.

The opposition, which was consisted of admins and patrols of Turkish Wikipedia, kept on publishing their version without explaining and responding to issues I raised. After I insisted on discussing the matter, an admin banned me.

And on their alleged investigation, they have not alleged me of any sock-puppet account there. Take a look at the investigation, of no account I am accused of there. Turkish Wikipedia defines sock-puppet account as follows: "An extra account used for improper use." I have asked them several times what improper purpose did I use any account for? No reply, they are just banning me and dismissing everything.

I have reported all the abuses of Turkish Wikipedia's authorities' to @HakanIST: on his talk page, he did even not bother to supervise the conflict. --Ruhubelent (talk) 13:12, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Here for example, I can ask the two again to state the reason they banned me for: 1) @Sakhalinio:, on what basis did you ban me? 2) @HakanIST:, which account is alleged to be my sock-puppet acocunt? And what improper use I had been committing? --Ruhubelent (talk) 13:19, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
With that said Alaa, may I request you to re-consider giving me Global IPBE? I do not need it on Turkish Wikipedia, they may keep me under block on their Wikipedia. No problem, I need it to work on Turkmen Wikipedia and to interact with other ones. That mob rule community may keep blocking me. --Ruhubelent (talk) 16:57, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Growth team updates and ideas


I've noticed that you've subscribed your home wiki to get updates about Growth team projects. Thank you!

We are considering new features to build, that could retain new editors in mid-size Wikipedias. We will be testing new ideas in Czech and Korean Wikipedias, and then we'll talk to more communities (especially yours!) about adopting the ideas that work well.

We have posted the 8 ideas we are considering. We would really appreciate your thoughts and the thoughts from your community. Please share the ideas, and tell us what do you and your community think of those ideas before September 9 if possible.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
