Possible xwiki vandalism IP at KOWIKI

Hello, please review the contribs of this IP as I am monitoring him for his vandalism in geographical pages. --Hamish 16:15, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

False block

I have been blocked by RicherMan66 as a sock puppet of Timwikisidemen even though I'm not. The reason was that I added unsourced, promotional content and Possible COI to the W2S. None of that is true, I haven't even made a single edit to W2S, I only took part in the article's entry for deletion.

Bring that to English Wikipedia administrator. Stewards are not the overseer of local admins, and given that English Wikipedia is a self-functioning wiki, we usually don't do anything on enwiki. — regards, Revi 12:15, 9 January 2020 (UTC)


hello dear sir

you blacked me and I had no any Destructive activity.

thanks for your response.

Hi, I need to know what is the block messages, so I can assist you. Please check this page, and reply with the value you see there. — regards, Revi 20:04, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

Computer magic

You seem fairly computer savvy. Is there any way you are aware of to get something like this Pet Scan result to work with Cat-a-lot? Having to manually add a category to 365 pages seems a touch excessive. GMGtalk 17:53, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

@GreenMeansGo: I moved this from enwikiquote; I want all messages from the wikis I don't actively participate centralized to Meta for archival reasons.
While I don't use PetScan for their inferiority over their predecessor, I tried to find things around it. I am not sure how to make it work with the Cat-A-Lot, but I think I can do the automated edits you need with my scripts. If you can tell me what to do (and where), I will do it from my account. — regards, Revi 19:58, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Dangit. I must've been on mobile at the time. I intended to leave that message for User:~riley, who has helped out with some categorization on en.quote.
At any rate, that pet scan result is English Wikipedia pages in the corresponding category, which themselves also have English Wikiquote pages. That search is useful when there's only a dozen or so results, but when it's hundreds of results, adding the Wikiquote pages to the category manually is a bit overwhelming. GMGtalk 13:40, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
Heh, alright! Provided that the petscan result is about English Wikiquote article name, I can put all of them into provided categories in short time (compared to humans doing it manually). Or I can let ~riley handle it. — regards, Revi 13:43, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
Also happy to help out as I know Cat-a-lot is not the idea tool for this. Feel free to shoot me a message on my enwikiquote talk page and specify which cats you want added. :) ~riley (talk) 00:36, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Importing templates

Hello. You recently imported some templates to Swedish Wikipedia ([1]). Many of those templates already existed at Swedish Wikipedia and your import replaced them with other versions. For most of the templates I dont think this made any big changes. But the imported Template:Documentation has big differences from the existing Swedish template sv:Template:Dokumentation with a redirect from sv:Template:Documentation. Please be more careful when importing templates and try to not overwrite local versions. /Ö (talk) 19:49, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Acknowledged. I'm sorry for the trouble you had to clean up. Thanks for doing that. — regards, Revi 19:51, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Introducing Mark Graham

Hello Revi, I'd like to introduce you to User:Markjgraham hmb, Mark Graham at the Internet Archive. He is interested in scaling up IABot across more wikis, including smaller wikis. Can you help him with the steward bot approval process? harej (talk) 17:28, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

Admins @skwikt

Hi, thanks for taking the time to look at my skwikt admin removal request. Your comment "There has been no actual policy provided with regards to the inactivity rules." however suggests you didn't read the request from the beginning. The inactivity rules are just a minor side story. The request is about recent vote on admin election/confirmation rules and subsequent failure of the admins to request the required annual confirmation. If you did this by mistake, please revert your action. If I misunderstood the reason you stated, please elaborate on your reasoning. — Robert Važan (talk) 01:11, 30 March 2020 (UTC)


I'm on a holiday for annual Wikibreak season. I still respond to Oversight request and other emergency requests, but you might have to wait for additional time for response on this talk page.

If you need...

  • Oversight on Meta: email meta-oversight
  • Oversight on Wikidata: email oversight
  • Oversight on Korean Wikipedia: email oversight-ko-wp
  • Oversight on a wiki site where there is no Oversight available: email stewards
  • Global block appeals: stewards Include the result of this webpage.

Thanks! — regards, Revi 16:16, 22 February 2020 (UTC)


Hi Sir what happened in my account?Why I am blocked.Can you open my block please?There is no mistake made by me.But I want to know why I cannot edit?

Hello MottOkumotto, It looks like you've hit the Spam Blacklist because you didn't put the real URL, but a Google AMP URL. You have to find the real URL - check this Quora answer to see how. — regards, Revi 18:19, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Regarding Your action [2]; That person [3] is hounding me, and he tries to make the dysfunctionality on our project, to paralyze the normal development, to freeze the human resources.

제가 갑자기 점검 면제자가 되었다가, 다시 회수된 이유를 알고 싶습니다. 영어로는 "이 사용자의 편집은 반드시 점검이 필요하다" 정도로 해석할 수는 있을 것 같긴 합니다만 그래도 궁금합니다. — Gomdoli4696 (토론) 06:42, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

귀하의 편집을 신뢰할 수 없기 때문에 권한을 부여한 관리자의 승낙 하에 권한을 회수한 사실이 있습니다. — regards, Revi 12:25, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Ticket 2020022110007242, ko help needed

Hello hello -revi,

Sorry for I know no korean and my english is rusty.

I need help from a korean editor to complete handling of the ticket mentioned up there. The client complains that "her" article states wrong info, within which a wrong birth date (she does not states which is right instead). She tells about the prejusdice involved due to her profession (actress). I have handled the ticket and removed the (presumably wrong) info from the articles in french, english and russian version of WP as well as Wikidata, and added a message on each of the according talk page in order for next editor to know the reasons of my edit so that they do not restore it: the source "AlloCiné" is not a secondary one and is not at all reliable. Meanwhile I requested the client to produce strong elements of her real birthdate, to ensure she does not try to fool us, as well as a public source in order that editors may include it to the "her" many articles and on WD.

I would greatly appreciate if you could do the same on wp:ko and its attached talk page.

Thanks in advance for your assistance in this special issue. Cordialement, et Hop ! Kikuyu3 (talk) 13:44, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Something about Korean Wikisource

fyi, this is because of Wikisource:Subdomain coordination on oldwikisource, to which "ko:" shows lack of informations of below:

  • If a text is Public Domain in either South or North Korea, but not in the United States, does Korean Wikisource allow it?
  • As opposite, if a text is Public Domain in the United States, but not in either South or North Korea, does Korean Wikisource allow it?

@Liuxinyu970226: It has never been clearly discussed, but according to general practice, at least works that are not in public domain in Korean laws cannot be posted. South Korea adopts life+70 and North Korea adopts life+50. --Sotiale (talk) 08:36, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi Revi--you placed a global block on this IP, but it's been used by an LTA to create sock accounts, who then go on to edit from other ranges. (They're doing the same from Have you blocked account creation there? And maybe the block should be lengthened as well... Thanks, Drmies (talk) 15:17, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

Global Ip Block exemption

Greetings from Bangladesh. I'm an active editor of Bangla Wikipedia. The main issue is Sometimes I need to use open proxy network for some inevitable reasons. I have been given Ip block exempt in Bangla Wikipedia. But when I go to English or other wikipedia then I can't edit with that! Can you help me by giving a global ip block exemption sir!?Wiki Ruhan (talk) 07:07, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I granted you GIPBE for 1 year. If you still need Global IP Block Exempt permission after the period lapses, ask for GIPBE on SRGP. — regards, Revi 14:42, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
