Reply to Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat/Archives/2020-01#Removal of +Autopatrol from User:MCC214

Sorry,I don't participate this discussion,

I respond in this discussion,I tag {{Locked global account}} in LTA pages because I don't need this LTA pages blanked,keep blanked page[1] is pointless,I feel anyone LTA pages only tag {{Locked global account}}(If LTA pages is not deleted),such as [2].

I only tag {{Locked global account}} in LTA pages when this page is create by LTA and don't create in LTA pages,this edit is only replace content in LTA pages when it is create to LTA.

But if you don't like I do this,I can stop it.

--MCC214#ex umbra in solem 11:31, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

@MCC214: Glad to see you willing to engage. To be clear, just blanking is better than tagging with the template. For this page, Praxidicae blanked the page, and there is no need to tag to leave a shrine for crosswiki abusers. Please refer to en:WP:DENY for more details. Given they are LTAs, we should even take more attention not to leave such shrines as they are just happy for these "status" which we must deny them. I didn't know you will go and dig my edit history, but as all my edits, I am happy to discuss them. For this it occurs in 2018 which I am relatively new in editing and did not know so much regarding what to do or what not to do. In retrospect, I should had blanked it and not replaced with the tag. I slowly learned the art of DENYing LTA attention. I admit I am incorrect in this particular edit.
I will like to add that it is not that I don't like you doing this for starting the RFH request, I am seeing these taggings after repeated people telling you not to and you persist. If you can address all the problems regarding your meta editing, I will be all for ~riley or any sysops to add back the autopatrol flag.
As a wiki, this is a collaborative space, and while everyone can edit, we must communicate with each other and especially when your edits are being questioned by other editors. We must and will always assume good faith, but there are times where things done in good faith may be disruptive, this is when action will be taken. I hope you understand it. All the best, --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:08, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | 한국어 | Nederlands | português | русский | edit

Congratulations, Camouflaged Mirage! You now have the rights of an administrator on Meta-Wiki. Please take a moment to read the Meta:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, and Meta:Requests for deletion, but also Talk:Spam blacklist and Talk:Interwiki map), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-adminconnect. You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading although it doesn't always completely apply here at Meta. Please also check or add your entry to Meta:Administrators#List of administrators and the Template:List of administrators. You're also allowed to subscribe the metawiki admins private mailing list. Again, congratulations and welcome to the team. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:49, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: Thanks so much. Appreciate it. Will use the tools judiciously.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:50, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

about the revisions of "Press release logbook/PR-1M-EN"

你看一下里面的链接 http://journowiki.org/wiki/User:Amgine 根本不是 wiki的啊,全部的email都被这个网址占据了。 这个根本不是 wiki的网站,只是最后后缀看起来很像!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Yael80 (talk)

--Minorax (talk) 15:06, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

@Minorax: Typically I go by if it's acceptable in SRG I will let it remain there, with hidename parameter should be enough, but I think I should had remove the entire report. Let me do it then. Thanks for raising it up with me. I won't be able to do RD for all as too many editions are affected. I will also consult an Oversighter for this.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:10, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
Thanks :) Minorax (talk) 15:14, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
No problem, I had emailed meta oversight and will respond accordingly. Thanks for your feedback in this issue. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:21, 22 February 2020 (UTC)


Thanks for removing that comment from my talk page. I suspect (talk · contribs) is a sock of a banned enwiki user. See en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Mmoates Billhpike (talk) 11:45, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

@Billhpike: We had locally blocked for a day, if they persist, ask me or at RFH for further blocks. Enwiki users still can edit here if they are banned, so we can only manage based on local standards, unless if they are vandalising many wikis. Thanks much.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:49, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Re:My request in Steward requests/Global#Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding

In Global locks via Reasons to request a global lock,accounts whose names are offensive or abusive (en:Wikipedia:Username policy#Disruptive or offensive usernames,usernames that are likely to offend other contributors) are also eligible for locking.

Also,I see many users is LTA socks,you can see CU results to stewards checked zh.wiki users.

--MCC214#ex umbra in solem 10:34, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

@MCC214: Firstly, are they all socks of 420peace, if not please indicate properly for stewards to lock with the correct reasons. And are those you reported offensive or abusive in nature, I doubt all are. Many users are LTA sock is inadequate, all in the request if it is titled as "LTA socks" must be LTA socks. Please ensure more accuracy in your reports. Thanks.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:00, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
