Excuse me Artix Kreiger, I'm the user who opened a global checkuser request about an almost certain abuser of proxies and sockpuppets 3 days ago. Okay, I opened it as an anonymous, and then I created an account, but the request is still as I left it. Meanwhile, another pair of IPs belonging to the same ranges have appeared making the same edits in the same pages... I thought such a report on meta.wikimedia would have been considered immediately, afterall it's about a user who's been using proxies since over a month ago and lately sock accounts too, and there's also a small possibility that the sockmaster is an old Italian registered user. Is the fact that this report is coming from an anonymous more significant that the content of the report itself, which I've just repeated? 17:17, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

you’ve asked the question to Ruslik0. He would give you a better answer. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 01:00, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Instead he seems to be ignoring me... May you tell me if I'm doing something wrong? Apart from the fact that I'm a new user I don't think I've given any reasons to be snobbed, I've only opened a checkuser request and provided enough information to deal with it easily. Will you please let me know if, on your opinion, it's just a matter of time or it's more likely that the request will be ignored? 17:01, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

no offense, but it got denied and it was gonna be that way. In the eyes of the stewards, you would have to be somewhat of an established user (with an account) in order to request. Otherwise, no one would know who you are. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 13:48, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

I'm this user (ther remover). I did it due to my retirement. It's as well as the many emails I receive, but not enough to read you them. It seems to me that I'll return only in the summer (around June). Thanks, 16:57, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

See here. Thanks, 16:57, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
hi! Glad to hear from you. Thanks for telling me. I appreciate it. I hope you enjoy your wiki break! Life is important! Hope to see you soon! --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 17:05, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! 17:13, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Re: User:Cosine02Edit

Yes, it is my previous account. So what should I do? Should I request for global lock for User:cosine02 in order to avoid confusion? --Stang 06:21, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

@Stang:, you could also go to SRUC to forcibly take over the account. ----Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 13:01, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your help.--Stang 13:57, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

IP "votes" in RFL discussionsEdit

In the one you just backed out, the user was probably an LTA anyway, so no harm done.

Still, I tend to be lenient in allowing IP participation in RFL discussions, because as you'll see from the template at the top (and also in LPP) these discussions are not votes (or even !votes) in the usual way of looking at things. The policy governs the decision, and the decision is made by LangCom. The discussion is provided to help LangCom decide whether the request is within policy or not. But LangCom really does not judge these things by the number of !votes. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:55, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

@StevenJ81:, ah ok. I see, you weigh the merits of the benefits over costs. I understand. Also, I agree, it appeared to be an LTA or sorts because I was not impressed by the gung-ho attitude of supports. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 14:59, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
Me, neither. It feels like possibly an IP of Assoc, who was just banned. But who knows? In any event, I'm most appreciative of your helping keep an eye on these things. (And I was just away for a while; help is always welcome.) StevenJ81 (talk) 15:30, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Quick translation requestEdit

Hi. "Village in China" = "Село у Кини" and "Village in Indonesia = "Село у Индонезији". --FiliP ██ 23:02, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

Translation requestEdit

Hi. I'd translate into Galician Village in China as Aldeas da China and Village in Indonesia would be Aldeas de Indonesia. In Spanish, it'll be Pueblos de China and Pueblos de Indonesia. I hope it helps! --AMPERIO (talk) 11:46, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi AMPERIO, Thank you so much. Just wanted to make sure, if I wanted to say something like "village in x province of China", would it be "aldea en provincia da X de China"? (google translate haha) 22:27, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
In Galician it would be something like "aldeas na provincia X da China" (lit. villages in province x of China) or "aldeas na provincia chinesa X" (lit. villages in the chinese province of x) (forget that). In Spanish it'll be "pueblos en la provincia X de China". Please note that both aldeas and pueblos are in plural, for singular just take the s out. --AMPERIO (talk) 18:43, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Re.: Quickt Translation RequestEdit

[22] "Village in China" = "selo u Kini". If You want a stylish form, also is possible "selo u Kitaju", "vas u Kini", "vas u Kitaju"; "stan" can also be "selo" (village), but that is solely for shepherds' village in mountain. "Village in Indonesia" = "selo u Indoneziji" (stylish form "vas u Indoneziji"). Kubura (talk) 21:01, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

"village in China" = 中國其村 (Chinese Charater), Dṳ̆ng-guók gì chŏng (Foochow Romanized);

"village in Indonesia" = 印尼其村 (Chinese Charater), Éng-nà̤ gì chŏng (Foochow Romanized). - I am Davidzdh. 13:37, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

User:Davidzdh, is it the same in classical chinese? --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 17:00, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
In Classical Chinese, it should be 中國之村, 印尼之村. - I am Davidzdh. 02:43, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Reply: Quick Question for youEdit

Hello. In Malay, "Village(s) in China" is translated as Kampung di China, "Village(s) in Indonesia" as Kampung di Indonesia and "Commune(s) in Morocco" would be Komun di Maghribi (not so sure about this one because I need to know its name in Arabic). I hope it helps. 26 Ramadan (talk) 04:36, 2 March 2018 (UTC)


Hello Artix, why you do that? --Alaa :)..! 04:11, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello Alaa, as I understand, oversight requests are usually best kept private and not really intended to draw attention. perhaps an email to is good. But I have restored it. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 04:19, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
I just ask a question to clarify things. Thanks for clarification --Alaa :)..! 04:36, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Translation requestEdit

Hello, I see you speak Nahuatlahtolli. I was wondering if you can translate "Village in China", "Commune in Morocco", and "village in Indonesia". It is for updating Wikidata. Thanks in advance. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 20:23, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Nahuatl is macrolanguage (NAH), in Mexico there are many Nahuatl languages, if you want this translates in Central Nahuatl (ISO code NHN), village is altepetl, commune is Altepecalpolli, and city is altepetl, Metropolitan Area is Altepenanyotl, Province is Hueyaltepetl, state is Tlahtohcayotl and country or nation is Tlacatiyan. Is you can in other Nahuatl languages, is very different. Regards.--Marrovi (talk) 20:30, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

ISO code nah is for macrolanguage, If you want to learn Nahuatl languages you must to visit Incubator Incubator:Category:Incubator:Nahuatl languages. Thanks.--Marrovi (talk) 20:37, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Marrovi, interesting though. I mean, in Central Nahuatl, is it altepetl China or Im missing something? --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 23:28, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Community ban proposal - User:ZsfgsegEdit

Template:Discussion-top Zsfgseg (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log • GUC)

see also: Category:Suspected Wikipedia sockpuppets of Zsfgseg

This user was initially blocked for vandalizing AN/I. Since that block he has repeatedly evaded his block, wanting a second chance (which is always denied because (a) his registered socks share the same name, and (b) he goes right back to the same behavior that got him blocked). Even more recently, he's been resorting to pestering me on IRC, seeking an unblock (usually after one of his socks gets caught), but today he followed up an IRC PM with this post to my talk page.

It is clear to me that he flat-out does not get it, and his repeated communication with me is starting to border on harassment. I am seeking a community ban against him for these reasons. —Jeremy (v^_^v Dittobori) 02:03, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Support Ban There's no excuse for that behavior and it's obvious he's just here to screw around, play games and act a fool. I think he DOES get it: this person has no desire to edit but gets his jollies by playing this game. Kindzmarauli (talk) 05:51, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support per above and his attempt to remove this discussion[23] -- AnmaFinotera (talk · contribs) 20:55, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
    • IP is now blocked. TFOWR 21:00, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support – Just formally ban him already; he's virtually de facto banned, anyways, as no admin in their right mind would even consider unblocking. –MuZemike 21:15, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support: Considered this yesterday, decided to sleep on it, no change of heart. Removing this discussion (per AnmaFinotera, above) suggests an ongoing wish to be destructive. Second chance comes after demonstrating an ability and desire to be constructive. TFOWR 10:21, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support; better to make this formal for the sake of clarity, if not anything else - the behavior is not acceptable. Ncmvocalist (talk) 14:16, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support ban. Although per MuZemike, he's basically de facto banned. But, repeated socking, inappropriate behavior, and that I haven't seen any constructive edits from any of the accounts or IPs are good enough reasons for me. Elockid (Talk) 20:36, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Note – I have blocked for 24 hours his continued disruption and block evasion here and on WP:ANI. –MuZemike 20:38, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
...and again for 55. –MuZemike 01:51, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support, obviously. ╟─TreasuryTagpresiding officer─╢ 20:50, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support ban – Clearly a lier who purposely wants another chance, just because the user wants to continue to vandalize. By the way, what do you mean with "community ban"? Heymid (talk) 20:53, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
Comment. A community ban is a type of ban when you have been practically ostracized here. Like others said here, community-banned people have no chance being accepted again as normal WP editors, not after all the damage they have done. --Eaglestorm (talk) 15:19, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support ban - from the IP evasion I've seen just today I'm happy for this to go ahead, and per the other supports above. S.G.(GH) ping! 23:14, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support ban - this kind of disruption warrants nothing other than this kind of remedy. Volunteer time cannot be wasted by behaviour like this and so it needs to simply be prevented--Cailil talk 23:58, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
Consensus seems clear to me, I have tagged the account and added to the List of banned users. Kindzmarauli (talk) 03:57, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
If no one's willing to unblock him, it's unnecessary to go through this rigamarole.—Ryūlóng (竜龙)
Apologies for pimping this every chance I get, but for editors dealing with clean-up, this is necessary: per WP:3RR reverting an indef'd editor can result in a block for a good-faith editor. A community ban changes that. There is value in a community ban over an indef-block-with-no-admin-prepared-to-unblock. TFOWR 14:44, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support ban He's just screwing around, Wikipedia is not his play-place. The Thing // Talk // Contribs 04:14, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support ban per all of the above. The IP Address blanking this section is evidently the same person, still willing to evade their ban and try to stop this process.   — Jeff G. ツ 14:37, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Clearly his recent hijinx have verified the absolute necessity. (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 22:03, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Strongest possible support. User is one of the most disruptive, attention-starved individuals I've encountered on this site - the username variations are proof of that since they're all variations on the same dull theme - and I've encountered my fair share. Further support for a possible rangeblock. PMDrive1061 (talk) 22:39, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Strong support per his history of vandalizeing TTTSNB's talk page as well as my own past experiences with him. His childish acts need to stop and a ban will alow for quicker action on any of his socks.--White Shadows stood on the edge 01:54, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Strong support - and if it is possible to construct a tight-enough rangeblock, I would recommend that too. -- PhantomSteve/talk|contribs\ 15:17, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Response to translation request.Edit

Hello Artix, you left a message on my talk page asking for a translation of three phrases into Scots. "village in China" translates into Scots as "clachan in Cheenae", "village in Indonesia" translates as "clachan in Indonesie". As for "commune in Morocco", it is written the same Scots.

Hello Artix, you left a message on my talk page asking for a translation of three phrases into Ingush. "Village in China" — "Чинхойче ула юрт", "Commune in Morocco" — "Марокко ула коммуна", "village in Indonesia" — "ХӀиндонезе ула юрт". Adam-Yourist (talk) 09:50, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Artix. I would translate in Minangkabau as follows: "Villages in China" = Kampuang di Tiongkok, "Villages in Indonesia" = Desa di Indonesia, and "Commune in Morocco" = Commune di Moroko. Regards, XoXo (talk) 07:24, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Following the discussion at SRGEdit is blocked in mainland China by the government, as a result many users from mainland China need to use proxy or VPN to access zhwiki. There are other methods to get around the block but not everyone knows about them. But as for the proxy or VPN usage, it's not uncommon for different individuals to get assigned to the same server, so that it would look like these accounts are editing from the same location or appearing to be controlled by the same person in a technical manner. -★- PlyrStar93. Message me. 01:15, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Plyrstar93, 中文是你的母语吗? how extensive is the block of zhwiki? Are there any good VPN i could use then? I might need them soon. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 13:13, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Yeah I'm zh-n. The block is by DNS poisoning, which means the domain gets resolved into an invalid IP address. It's possible to visit zhwiki in mainland China by setting up other methods without using a proxy/VPN, but this can vary depending on the ISP used and you will most definitely need a VPN anyways if you need to visit certain other websites (and I would rather not talk about the exact methods in a place publicly visible). Speaking of "good VPN" service, it's pretty subjective and time-sensitive, because new "unauthorized" VPN servers are actively blocked by the government as soon as they become aware of them. On the other hand I don't need to use VPN at the moment since I'm not in China now, and I would not publicly recommend any VPN service. If you are traveling soon, we can talk privately and I'll see what I can do. -★- PlyrStar93. Message me. 16:15, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
