To do tasksEdit

Align the codes on the admin/crat/cu/... and sisters user templates to have a base, and a build

user meta tool to identify User:CommonsDelinker pages and removeEdit

Time to get rid of the legacy garbage user pages, and allow meta user page to shine through.

Cf. kywiktionaryEdit

Has this report lead to any further conclusions? It seems this IP user resumed activity after expiry of your 1 month block. --Vogone (talk) 16:01, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

@Vogone: Thanks for the contact, I had forgotten to get back there following the block expiry. There was no contact, which is unfortunate. I have been and tidied up, and blocked for an extended period. I also note, and think that it may be related, though will watch more closely.

I also see a little activity at tgwikt from one of the IPs which is probably related.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:49, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

I see you blocked 2804:14C:6585:429A:E9B4:A405:E5FF:F8C0 on that wiki, but have not deleted (all of?) their recent contributions — specifically the ones from March 10th, which I'm pretty sure are the exact entries that caused the wiki to pass 30K again on that date (I announced it with no "reservations" because I forgot I had just questioned similar activity in that same wiki just the month before [as linked to by Vogone above]). Any particular reason you left those pages alone? - dcljr (talk) 02:17, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Same goes for the following users on the same wiki:
These 5 IPs have been blocked as part of your March 24th block of "2804:14c:6590:8cec::/64" but their contributions from early January of this year have been left on the wiki. Have I just "jumped the gun" on this, and you're still in the process of deleting stuff over there? Or are you not sure they're actually the same person? - dcljr (talk) 02:33, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Mass delete failed due to db error, and I didn't have the time to do singly. The older are not in RC, so cannot be mass deleted.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:39, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
OK. So, should I request this at SRM? (You would have deleted those pages if you could have, right?) - dcljr (talk) 06:04, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
They are deletions that are going to need to be bot'ified or handled individually, which takes a little time and patience. These are shared tasks, so either at SRM, or a link to list at SRM are always an option.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:38, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Objection to deletionsEdit

Hi Billinghurst, would you please state your rationale for these deletions at Template talk:Main Page/WM News? EllenCT (talk) 09:33, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Chill your jets. Give someone an opportunity to type some paragraphs.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:34, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
Could you please clarify? I don't understand whether you have any objections independent of the discussion which has already taken place. There is a March 16 deadline for comments on the item. Please accept my apologies if I seem to be hasty. EllenCT (talk) 09:40, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
An administrator has said that they consider this contentious information for our main page; and this is text on the main page being discussed. When I have time to consider it and make comment, then I may, or I might keep neutral. At this point, I am returning to the status quo.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:46, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
Do you agree that the information is contentious; if so, in what way? EllenCT (talk) 09:51, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
Now you are being pushy. Uncool.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:02, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Please excuse my pushiness. EllenCT (talk) 03:33, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

You've got mailEdit

--Alaa :)..! 21:16, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

@علاء: diff for creating a report, and from the report we can use the SBL gadget to easily blacklist. Beetstra or I can grant you that access if you wish to add domains for checking, and I am happy to take instructional remarks. I leave such comments all the time.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:36, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
Hello @Billinghurst:. Thanks a lot, and yes if you can grant me this access it'll be too helpful to me, as there's a lot of Arabic spam websites that need to be listed. Thanks on advance --Alaa :)..! 19:10, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
@علاء:   Done, though it will be slow to take effect. If you think there is value in having a local page at your wiki to report matters with local control and local access, as we do with user:COIBot/Poke, then chat with Beetstra, otherwise have fun at poke adding away. Generally for a xwiki report, I use {{XWikiSummary}} at Poke.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:15, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
Further, for the domain there are too many hits in the history to generate a report, and I think that a request for a blacklisting should go via talk:spam blacklist. Beetstra are you able to purge the data for that domain as user:COIBot/XWiki/ says too many reports, though it seems that there have just been so many equivalent deletions as the not enormous numbers online. @Praxidicae: I think that we have an Arabic language equivalent of junk news sites we have been noting at enWP.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:25, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Billinghurst. I opened SBL request. When I found new links I'll put it on User:COIBot/Poke, and probably after few months we can make local page (need good community arrangements). Thanks again --Alaa :)..! 03:19, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

About chauvinisme and not onlyEdit

Hello. Please comment your decision: [1]. To whom is it adressed? --Derslek (talk) 16:04, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

@Derslek: My closing statement is addressed to the readers of Wikimedia Forum and those who have commented

  • The facts, as the parties see it, have been expressed.
  • There is some general commentary.
  • That forum seems to have exhausted its ability to act.

If you think that there is a further requirement of the community, then the typical means to address some such specific matters is a request for comment. The forum has no further ability than to direct you to your options. The alternate is you address it directly to the stewards as they have acted and only they have the means to further act, use special:emailuser/stewards for that contact.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:33, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

  • It's did not explained on what basis I was expelled from the Tatar Wikipedia. There must be an explanation for everything and there must be Consensus on every desicion. Is not it? --Derslek (talk) 18:20, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
    Discussion has been had on the page, and it is not the place for further conversation. I have suggested means to progress if you believe that there is more to do.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:26, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
