Hi, Sorry to bother you, But I've already asked an en.wikipedia admin but he couldn't do anything for not being able to speak Arabic!, so could you please check this article, it's recreation of previously deleted artile made by globally locked user, also the same article was deleted from Arabic Wikipedia so many times and from Egyptian Wikipedia in so many name format 1 & 2 and other Wikipedia sites for using fake sources and self-published sites to promote a bare notability person, also its conflict of interest (comparing the user name and the article title).

Issue on WPWP and WPWPCM

Hello, I am coming to you to clarify an issue related to the count of the number of changes I made for the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Pictures contest. Indeed, I am a Cameroonian contributor and I have contributed on several languages. I noticed that all my contributions were not taken into account. example: changes to the date of August 26 are not taken into account. Thank you for your response and for taking my request into account. Bile rene (talk) 02:12, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello Ala'a, my friend Antoniex found two socks : Istanbul sevdasi + Alexandar Julien. Now, that guy sends messages to RC patrollers & admin asking them to create the pages about him, because everything is protected. Best regards, - Bédévore (talk) 16:28, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello Bédévore, Thanks for you and Antoniex. Both accounts   locked and documented. Also before few weeks I put full clarification on arwiki Village pump, as he started adding people on Social Media asking to create the pages. Best --Alaa :)..! 16:37, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
He's really motivated about himself, isn't he ? :D Best regards, - Bédévore (talk) 16:40, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Reported him again on admin noticeboard for those who don't know him yet : https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikip%C3%A9dia:Bulletin_des_administrateurs/2020/Semaine_38&diff=174880618&oldid=174880042 - Bédévore (talk) 16:49, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Bédévore Yes, motivated on wrong way, also he thinks he is smarter than others (by asking to create article with sources, and said to them that he don't want to create it to avoid COI). Thanks for admin noticeboard report, and same like my report to arwiki community, as a lot of them not know him, but now almost all active arwiki sysop and editors know him. Best--Alaa :)..! 17:22, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Hi Ala'a, sock puppet investigation also found Special:CentralAuth/Ibrahim kilic 74 - fr:Wikipédia:Vérificateur d'adresses IP/Requêtes/septembre 2020#Istanbul sevdasi, Alexandar Julien (et faux-nez)- 20 septembre Best regards, - Bédévore (talk) 20:43, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Moving مستخدم:The_other_Kiwix_guy/Landing to wikipedia:offline (but in arabic)

Hello my friend, I hope you are doing well. Can I please ask you to rename مستخدم:The_other_Kiwix_guy/Landing on ar.wp to the Arabic equivalent of wikipedia:offline ? (I would have done the request there but it appears your page is semi-protected). It's a detail but when using Kiwix people will see the user namespace as page title, which is kind of strange. Shukran! The other Kiwix guy (talk) 10:13, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Hello @The other Kiwix guy: I hope all is well with you too, thank you for asking! So, I'll move (مستخدم:The_other_Kiwix_guy/Landing) to (ويكيبيديا:بلا إنترنت) -In English: Wikipedia:Offline-, yes? should I leave a redirect from the original page? Best --Alaa :)..! 11:35, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
Yes, correct. You can actually delete the source page. Thank you. :-) — The preceding unsigned comment was added by The other Kiwix guy (talk)
@The other Kiwix guy:   Done. You can found it here, also I made few edits on the page (translation and grammars). Best --Alaa :)..! 13:16, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Consultation in Arabic

Hi, Alaa. We met once at Wikimania and now I need your help. I wrote an article in Ukrainian about historical region in UAE but cannot find interwiki. Can you check whether there is such article in Arab.wiki? The term is "Shumayliya/Shumaylīyah/Shamailiya" and my article is here. Thanks in advance! --Brunei (talk) 18:53, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello Brunei, hope you are doing well! Unfortunately, there's no article about this historical region on Arabic Wikipedia, so I asked arwiki user from UAE to create one about it here. Also I linked your article with WD here, so once arwiki article created I'll link them directly. Thanks   --Alaa :)..! 13:27, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for your help! Let all violences of real life omit you! --Brunei (talk) 14:29, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Arabic edit-a-thon article

Dear Alaa, hello again! I would like to ask your kind help again, because this year we have created again an Arabic article in our edit-a-thon. :) If it is not a problem, can I ask a little help in the finishing process (polishing a bit and renaming)? I would be really really thankful! I hope you are fine and everything goes well. Best regards, Bencemac (talk) 08:42, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello Bencemac, Thanks a lot of your efforts! and hope you are doing well and safe. Is there any interwiki link for this Arabic article? as it's talking about "Presentation of Arabs and the Arab world in the plays of William Shakespeare", and I don't think we'd make separate article under this topic, also maybe a few users will see it as original research. Best --Alaa :)..! 13:37, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the answer! I don't think that it's covered in the English Wikipedia, although I'd say that the topic is well-covered via scholar articles. Sorry about that this year the article is not that perfect, but I'd be truly glad if you can help me to find some editors who will edit it a bit. Unfortunately, my hands are tied due to the language barriers. As always, thanks and have a nice day! Bencemac (talk) 14:10, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
@Michel Bakni: What you think? --Alaa :)..! 12:35, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
Hello, I think the subject is interesting, however, I do not see it as a stand-alone article. I think it might be a part of other article such as Shakespeare, Theater in England or something like that.--Michel Bakni (talk) 06:50, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
Any recommendation for the next step? I'm sorry for bothering you, I'd do it myself if I can. :/ Thanks in advance! Bencemac (talk) 09:37, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
@Bencemac Did you mind if we make it a separate section on Shakespeare article? --Alaa :)..! 15:02, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
No, we're totally fine with it. Please do it if you can. :) Bencemac (talk) 15:25, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Bencemac. So the user sandbox moved to article namespace then redirected to section on Shakespeare article. Is that fine now? Best --Alaa :)..! 15:39, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
Yes, perfection! Thank you so much, both of you! Have a nice day guys, be safe! Regards, Bencemac (talk) 15:50, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Bencemac! Be safe and welcome any time!   --Alaa :)..! 16:01, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

سؤال

مرحبا أخي علاء، أتمنى أن تكون بأفضل حال، من فضلك لدي سؤال: هل هناك إمكانية لتغيير اسم الحساب في translatewiki.net و Wikitech وشكرا جزيلا --Omar2040 (talk) 20:02, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

مرحبًا @Omar2040: عذرًا لللتأخر بالرد. نعم يُمكن ولكن كونها منفصلة عن مشاريع ويكيميديا، بالتالي يجب عليك مراسلة بيروقراط هناك لتغيير الاسم لك (قائمة البيروقراطيين في ويكيتك وفي ترانسليت ويكي). لاحظت أنَّ Reedy‎‏ بيروقراط في كلا المشروعين، بالتالي يمكن أن تضرب عصفورين بحجرٍ واحد. تحياتي --Alaa :)..! 14:54, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
أهلا أخي علاء لا أعرف كيف أشكرك .. شكرا جزيلا لك   --Omar2040 (talk) 15:52, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
@Omar2040 لا عليك عُمر، لا حاجة للشكر. تحياتي وُدمت بخير دائمًا --Alaa :)..! 15:59, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

You just locked the wrong account

You globally locked User:TornadoLGS while User:TormadoLGS (note "m" instead of "n") remains unlocked. Sro23 (talk) 06:52, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Infobox template

Hi there! I kinda need a help of adding legal status in the Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia infobox. I did add it but seems like it doesn't appear there and I'm not sure if it have relations with the translate code in the template. Can you help me adding them? I'd like to add in the template about the group as non-governmental organization and also it's registration number. Please let me know if you could. Thank you. WAqil (WMYS) (talk) 03:21, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello @WAqil (WMYS):. Done here, yes? Best --Alaa :)..! 15:00, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

Global lock on ip address 36.84.63.239

Hi @علاء:, Why you block me with no discussion and check? Pemblokiran dilakukan oleh علاء (meta.wikimedia.org). Alasan yang diberikan adalah Cross-wiki spam. Mulai di blokir: 17 Desember 2020 00.12 Kedaluwarsa blokir: 17 Januari 2021 00.12 Thanks. Joseagush (talk) 01:07, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

Hello @Joseagush: please see Steward_requests/Global/2020-12#Global_block_36.84.63.0/24 --Alaa :)..! 11:08, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
@علاء:, yeah, but why me? its clearly said 36.84.63.0/24 not 36.84.63.239?? Joseagush (talk) 11:16, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
@Joseagush 36.84.63.0/24 is IP range include all IPs 36.84.63.0 ~ 36.84.63.255. I changed the block to be anonymous only block. --Alaa :)..! 11:24, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
What??? did you know what the "/" mean? it's almost entire district code you want to block. Joseagush (talk) 11:28, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
@Joseagush see GUC for this range it's not active, and include cross-wiki spam as metioned on the block request. Also based on login-wiki this range block not make any collateral damage, and rate of new accounts across this range is very small (5 accounts every 3 months). Best --Alaa :)..! 11:38, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
FYI @Billinghurst: --Alaa :)..! 11:39, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Alaa. @Joseagush: Of course the steward knows what they are doing, and what a range block does. Have a little respect.

I requested a short/medium term block on the IP range as it had gambling spam emanating from within it and over a period of time, and otherwise had low activity. I presume that Alaa saw something in the data to make it more than IP address block.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:01, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Billinghurst and علاء:, Let me know why you make global block for all IP address based on just one request without asking what is wrong, which "it's not active, and include cross-wiki spam"? I have seen the Bot reported just two IPs, 36.84.63.152 and 36.84.63.228. Why not just two of this blocked, rather you choose to blocked all ranges? Joseagush (talk) 12:42, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Billinghurst!
@Joseagush did you see the Checkuser data for this range that I see on login-wiki? Also did you see 36.84.63.244 edits? 36.84.63.183 edits? --Alaa :)..! 13:03, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
@Joseagush and I don't know if you know that few other IPs (36.84.63.60 + 36.84.63.194) blocked on various wikis under Vandalism reason? --Alaa :)..! 13:09, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
Hi @علاء:, nope, but thanks to mention that. That's make the count just four, not 255? My point here, What is the rule here to block all IPs? Just to make sure. Joseagush (talk) 13:22, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Joseagush. There are several possibilities why block a range instead of individual IPs, one of it, If there's vandalism or abuse from a lot of individual IPs under specific range, then we blocked the range, especially if it inactive range, and the block will not affect a lot of users or hinders their work. In 36.84.63.0/24 case, there's vandalism and spam from 6 IPs plus a lot of other IPs considered as open proxies (No open proxies), like 36.84.63.2, 36.84.63.5, 36.84.63.150, 36.84.63.240, 36.84.63.99...etc. Also, I see few accounts on loginwiki-CU that make single edit spam. Because of this, I blocked it for one month for anonymous only. --Alaa :)..! 13:35, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for fast reply. That's answer a lot. Joseagush (talk) 13:49, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
