My user page

Hi – this might be a somewhat unusual request. In July you revision deleted some edits from my user page. Billinghurst described it as "vulgarised" and it isn't suppressed, so I presume it's not outing or libel. Now as a sysop on enwiki I'm used to being able to see this kind of thing, even about myself, and I'm very curious. It'll probably be an anticlimactic experiece, but still, could you please undelete it, and then semi-protect the page? Thanks. BethNaught (talk) 20:15, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello. I have semi-protected your user page per your request. Those revisions are grossly offensive and as such I don't think it is appropriate to leave them publicly available. They contain no private or personal information and no libel though, just some grossly insulting phrases targeted at you. I can show you the content by e-mail if you really want to see it. Best regards, Defender (talk) 22:02, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Sysop em pt.wikibooks.org

Gostaria de lhe dirigir uma questão, a qual não sabemos como proceder:

Um de nossos administradores ficou 2 anos afastado do wikibooks em português por motivos de ordem pessoal, os quais não lhe possibilitaram estar presente. Como consequência, ele perdeu o status de administrador. Agora, o mesmo retornou ao projeto há mais de um mês e gostariamos de saber se é permitido que o mesmo volte a ser administrador e qual o procedimento para tal.

Se puder, lhe peço que acesse a discussão: [https://pt.wikibooks.org/wiki/Utilizador_Discuss%C3%A3o:Dante_Cardoso_Pinto_de_Almeida#Estatuto%20de%20administrador aqui. Obrigado. Marcos Antônio Nunes de Moura (talk) 21:15, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

I forgot to mention that the blocked IP address is 69.12.80.66 (talkcontribsinfoWHOIS). I'm editing through my phone's internet connection right now; I'm not able to post to your talk page on meta-wiki when connected through my local area network. Seppi333 (talk) 02:57, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Apparently I have a dynamic IP through my proxy since this is now my IP address. I still think a global IP block exemption is necessary though since I appear to be randomly assigned IP addresses that are blocked on some wikis (e.g., this IP address is blocked on the English Wikipedia) or globally (e.g., my previous IP address). Seppi33396.44.175.234 04:06, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
@Seppi333: Ok, I've granted you a global block exemption. Please note, however, that this doesn't work against local blocks, for which you still need to apply for an exemption locally. Best regards, Defender (talk) 18:44, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

Help design a new feature to stop harassing emails

Hi there,

The Anti-Harassment Tools team plans to start develop of a new feature to allow users to restrict emails from new accounts. This feature will allow an individual user to stop harassing emails from coming through the Special:EmailUser system from abusive sockpuppeting accounts.

We’re inviting you to join the discussion because you have experience dealing with abusive sockpuppeting accounts and you work across many wikis. We think that your insights will help us build a better feature.

You can leave comments on this discussion page or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.

It is important to hear from a broad range of people who are interested in the design of the tool, so we hope you join the discussion and let us know how it would work best for you.

Puppets performing "Cross Wiki Spam"

Hello Defender, the account HellboyPSY (talk · contribs) was confirmed as a puppet by a checker of the pt.wiki and fr.wiki.

In short, there is a category with locked puppets. They have been editing on several Wikipedia for the same purpose, creating and maintaining a biography. I ask you if this is not a case for global blocking. Also, the page is still active on Japanese Wikipedia, can you delete it or indicate it for deletion? Conde Edmond Dantès (talk) 01:43, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

@Conde Edmond Dantès: Sorry for the late reply. I'm not sure global locks are applicable to this case. I only see blocks on ptwiki. Maybe RadiX wants to have a look at it? Defender (talk) 15:32, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
@Conde Edmond Dantès and Defender: Appart from those issues on ptwiki, I think the user has done nothing else to warrant a global lock, at least for now. I've not found long term cross-wiki vandalism here. We might keep an eye on it though. Anyway, maybe I just need to look a little closer at it. RadiX 19:02, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
@RadiX: by the time I sent the message to Defender, the user had created the same biography on four different Wikis and had been blocked in the pt.wiki and fr.wiki for using puppets. So I thought the global lock would be valid, but over time, the user seems to have ceased. Conde Edmond Dantès (talk) 19:07, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

CheckUser inquiry

Hello Defender, perhaps you can help me. I've read in your user page that you're a steward. Well, one week ago I've opened a checkuser request about a very likely (almost 100%) cross-wiki proxy user and sockpuppet user, both in RFCU and SRCU. Since the user that I've identified is going on doing the same edits in the same pages with normal IP ranges (coming from Italy, and I'm Italian too) I'm updating the IP list daily, but nobody has checked about this problem, which is very real and currently continuing, yet. Can you do anything do help me with this request? I've been spending and I'm still spending a long time for that, and still I see no results. I thought at the beginning that this problem would be solved quickly, afterall it's about proxies and sockpuppets so it should interest sysops, I hoped I could do something good for the project and maybe I would be thanked for that; instead, also requests made after mine have already been closed, while the only 2 answers I had for mine were that if I'm an IP user I can't make requests (so I've created an account too) or that the 2 only socks that I've reported can't be linked to IPs because of CU Policy (then what about the proxy IPs and the normal IPs?)... If you can do anything for me, please tell me. Thanks in advance! 151.64.170.148 14:29, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Could you have a look to my new request here and tell me whether there's something wrong or not, please? 151.64.167.163 11:27, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Ajuda

Olá. Como vai? Um usuário da Wikipédia em Português me enviou e-mails dizendo que não consegue acessar sua conta. Ele não tem e-mail cadastrado e não lembra da senha (apenas de uma anterior). O que poderia ser feito? Érico (talk) 02:15, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Olá. Desculpe a demora para responder. Eu estava de viagem. Pode ser feito um pedido no Phabricator. O usuário em questão deve ter meios de provar ser o dono da conta, e não há garantia de deferimento. A menos que ele possua uma quantidade expressiva de edições, é mais fácil criar uma nova conta e abandonar a anterior. Defender (talk) 15:05, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
Muito obrigado pelas informações. Vou repassá-las imediatamente ao editor. Ele tem mais de 10 mil edições, e enviou-me um print quando estava logado na conta (espero que sirva como uma prova). Mais uma vez, obrigado. Érico (talk) 20:17, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Steward requests/Global‎‎

Olá Defender. Venho nesses dias monitorando as Mudanças Recentes aqui do Meta e em algumas vezes me deparo com LTAs que abusam de contas múltiplas para cometerem vandalismo em PDUs alheias. Sei que a página Steward requests/Global‎‎ serve para a realização de pedidos como os de bloqueios globais. Porém, toda vez que tenho que adicionar um novo pedido, tenho que clicar na aba editar, ir para o final da página e proceder de forma manual.

Existe algum botão em que posso clicar na página que já fornece os campos que devem ser preenchidos com o nome do usuário etc? --Editor D.S (talk) 03:36, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

New community space for IdeaLab on Connect

Hi folks. If you're receiving this message, you've contributed to IdeaLab or an Inspire Campaign this year. Thanks for participating to develop ideas and review ones from other Wikimedians.

We are preparing some changes to IdeaLab and Inspire Campaigns. One of these changes is a new community space on Connect, where Wikimedians can find each other based on common activities or skills, and ask questions about the space. You are invited to join this community space for IdeaLab, especially if you would ever consider needing to find contributors with certain skills (like design or project management) or would like to offer your skills to others in our movement. To join, please proceed to Connect/IdeaLab and click on the "Add yourself" button on the right. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 19:53, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on Measuring Community Health

Do you have an idea about how to measure the health of your community? Do you want to review ideas that others have submitted? Through August 10th, we are inviting ideas on how to capture the well-being of Wikimedia communities, in terms of matters like conflict resolution, effective content creation, and being able to contribute in a collaborative environment. Ideas can be focused on either quantitative techniques, such as gathering raw data, or qualitative techniques, like surveying contributors. If you are submitting an idea, guidance is available for how to move your idea into implementation, such as through a grant or starting a Phabricator task to engage with developers.

If you're interested, consider joining the Inspire Campaign. I JethroBT (WMF) 17:13, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Pedido para eliminar a minha conta do wikipédia em inglês

Caro Defender,

Não o conheço mas queria pedir o favor de eliminar a minha conta da página do Wikipedia em inglês. Claramente as coisas não correram muito bem por lá, e como sinto que não tenho mais nada a acrescentar à wikipedia em inglês, e que as coisas chegaram a um ponto de não-retorno, gostaria de exercer o meu direito ao esquecimento. Não sei exatamente como isto se processa, até porque vi que a wikipedia tem uma política de não apagar contas, mas apesar disso penso que existe alguma solução, inclusive pedi um desaparecimento de cortesia, mas não sei se é suficiente. Será que me pode ajudar? Obrigado--Ppteles (talk) 02:57, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Olá Ppteles. Primeiramente cumpre esclarecer que na Wikimedia as contas de usuários são globais e não podem ser excluídas. Conforme as regras que regem o direito a desaparecer, em especial Right to vanish e en:Wikipedia:Courtesy_vanishing, o procedimento consiste em renomear a conta global e só é viável se você pretende se afastar de todos os projetos Wikimedia em definitivo. Esse serviço pode ser solicitado em Special:GlobalRenameRequest. Dito isso, se o que você quer na verdade é um recomeço limpo, dê uma lida nesta página.

5.2.200.163 xwiki-contribs xwiki-date ST IP info WHOIS robtexgblockglistabuselogipchecker Hi, Defender! Could also globally block this underlying IP from Mures (RO), because it has been confirmed to be very likely open proxy, as the admin confirms the request. 109.102.200.47 18:24, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

  Done — regards, Defender (talk) 18:44, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Defender! Regarding the above blocked IP it can be said that certainly this IP is NOT an open proxy, but just a network of computers from an educational institution, Mures County Library (Biblioteca Judeteana Mures) which apparently has been misidentified as a probable open proxy. Based on this info I request global unblock of this institutional IP. Thanks!--93.122.250.83 13:22, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Oh, sorry for that! Unfortunately, IP 5.2.200.163 is be blocked globally by Defender because is confirmed as open proxy. Do you have anything comments regarding to this issue? 37.6.166.237 18:14, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Emergency in KaWiki

Dear steward,
Please read my explanation thoroughly. It is about an inexorable situation in the Georgian Wikipedia, the long-established. Every attempt to solve the problem locally fails again and again. So, please, do not be indifferent.
The requests are extraordinary, so I do not write on a general page, but personally.
Best regards, Deu. 18:00, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Ajuda urgente

Olá. Estou aqui pois preciso muito de ajuda. Estou sofrendo assédio na Wikipédia em português por parte de um administrador. Hoje fui bloqueado mais uma vez por conta de mais um ataque dele contra mim. Quando tentei me defender, outro administrador apagou minhas justificativas por "disseminação de desconfiança", mesmo comprovando tudo. E ainda cancelaram a discussão de bloqueio.

Por favor, me ajude. Não sei mais a quem recorrer e essas atitudes já estão afastando os editores da Wiki-pt. Jardel @lves msg 20:01, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Só para informá-los, o assunto já está sendo discutido nessa página. --Editor D.S (talk)  21:30, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Eu tive que vir pra cá porque me silenciaram. Não quero que isso passe em branco. .J. tlk 21:37, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Só pra constar: o assunto não está sendo resolvido. Enquanto vários editores estavam a meu favor contra esse bloqueio absurdo (censura), os administradores preferem defender o colega abusivo e assediador. Gostaria realmente de conversar a respeito do quanto a Wikipédia em português está se tornando nociva para novos usuários e para usuários antigos que estão sofrendo perseguição. Mesmo com provas, estou sendo acusado de "disseminar a desconfiança", então prefiro relatar a alguém de fora que possa resolver este assunto. .J. tlk 13:43, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Olá JardelW. Pelo que pude entender, o assunto foi resolvido nesta discussão de bloqueio, na qual todos os administradores participantes manifestaram apoio unânime ao bloqueio que lhe havia sido aplicado. Conforme eslarecido aqui, os stewards não possuem autoridade para atuar como árbitros em disputas locais ou passar por cima da administração local de um projeto. Precedente nesse sentido. Eventual intervenção em um projeto pode ser discutida em um pedido de comentários, mas não se pode olvidar que o Meta não é uma corte de apelação, de acordo com o item 13 de Meta:What Meta is not, a saber: "13. Meta is not an appeals court. If a community decides something, don't come here to try to get the decision overruled". Destarte, lamento dizer que não me compete interferir no caso em comento. Cumprimentos, Defender (talk) 01:25, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Patrulhamento e reversões.

Olá Defender, tudo bem? Venho aqui para tentar entender uma coisa que observei. Atualmente estou no grupo dos Patrulhadores, aqui no Meta. E como você sabe, as edições que ainda não foram patrulhadas aparecem com um ponto de exclamação em vermelho. Porém, em páginas como essa, apesar de aparecer o ponto de exclamação, não consigo patrulhá-las e nem reverter ou desfazer as edições. Já houve casos em que me deparei com vandalismos, porém não conseguia reverter a edição. Percebi que isso ocorre com toda página que possui a aba Traduzir. Saberia me dizer porque isso ocorre e como posso patrulhar/reverter edições nessas páginas? Desde já agradeço. --Editor D.S (talk)  00:23, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

@Editor D.S: dê uma olhada nessa página. Defender (talk) 00:34, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

URGENT: Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information now

This is a reminder to acknowledge and sign the new Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information. As you know, your volunteer role in Wikimedia projects gives you access to secure and sensitive information.

The new version includes one major change.

  • There is a change regarding the way personal data may be released. Accordingly, functionaries must notify the Wikimedia Foundation at check-disclosure wikimedia.org before releasing data, in order to obtain a written approval for doing so. The Foundation will respond within 10 days. However, for emergencies, such as cases involving threats of violence, functionaries may release the personal data without such explicit permission, but they should notify the Foundation immediately following the disclosure. If they choose not to disclose the data, the request for disclosure should be forwarded to the Foundation's emergency email address (emergency wikimedia.org).

There are also some wording changes that were made to more closely align the language with evolving industry norms, best practices and laws. The most notable of these has been the change of the term "nonpublic information" to "nonpublic personal data". None of these changes are intended to make fundamental changes to the scope or practice of the policy but we know they could appear as such, hence wanted to flag them.

The aforementioned changes require users that have already signed the previous version of the policy to sign the new version as well.

We therefore ask that you to sign the updated version. Signing the agreement is tracked on Phabricator's Legalpad. An online guide is available to help you with signing the agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign. If you wish you can sign it directly at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/L37. The exact policy is located here: Access to nonpublic personal data policy. The text of the confidentiality agreement is located here: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information

If you have already received this message and signed the updated agreement, you need not sign it again. Once is sufficient. In this case, we ask that you respond to Samuel (WMF) letting him know when (date) and how (method/process of signing) you have signed it so that we can update our own records.

Note: please bear in mind that if you still haven’t signed the updated version of the Confidentiality Agreement by February 13, 2019 your rights will be removed.

Thank you for your understanding,

Samuel Guebo (User:Samuel (WMF)), Wikimedia Foundation

LTA personal attack account

@Defender: Hello. Can you please Lock the account listed above (and maybe hide it globally)? This is an account of the LTA vandal Jeffman12345, who is more recently known as Glapz. This account was obviously made for the sole purpose of attacking another user. Thank you. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 13:21, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

"Who Wrote That" project update

Hello. I'm reaching out to you as you participated in the 2017 Community Wishlist proposal for "Who Wrote That" project (previously known as "Blame Tool"). The Community Tech team is kicking things off on the project and we have an early-stage mockup available for you to look at. I invite you to follow that project page, where I will be posting periodic status updates for the project. You are also welcome to provide your thoughts on the talk page. Thank you. -- NKohli (WMF) (talk) 22:57, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

The Affiliate-selected Board seats process welcomes your support

Hello. You are receiving this message because you kindly helped with affiliates-related translations in the past. The movement needs you again! The Nominations phase has started for the ongoing selection process of two Board members, and the timeline is quite tight.

A Translation Central is available to help keen translators like you figure out what's been covered and what's left to do. Over the course of the next few weeks, your attention on candidates' profiles is particularly welcome. While there are four languages that are especially relevant for multiple affiliates (namely Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish), you can also add others. If you can't help: please see if you know anyone in your circle who could, and spread the word :)

Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 13:19, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Password

Hi Defender, I have a "little" problem, after almost 8 years using the same password, a couple of months ago I decided to change it to something more "difficult" and saved it to my PC, which allows me to access and edit Wikipedia projects. But now I am trying to access it through my iPhone and I am not getting it due to forgetting the new password. Is possible you send my actual password to my email ... or return to the old password?

Sorry for the inconvenience but I'm afraid one day will not be able to access more the Wikipedia Fundation. Thanks. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 05:21, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
