The Watertank crime familyEdit

Thanks for the locking and blocking. At second glance, KishaAbercrombie is the odd one out, because it did not try to link to The other two did. These attempts have been going on for nearly a month now, 24*7, with zero result because of the blacklist filter. This perseverance suggests to me the purpose might be testing our defenses: repeated use of the same IP-adresses after different timespans and the occasional creation of accounts. Or it's just me being paranoid.   --MarcoSwart (talk) 12:46, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

@MarcoSwart: No, you are definitely not paranoid. Unfortunately, we have to be a little sceptical and extra careful in order to tackle potentially problematic users. Do you have a list of these users and IP's? If so, I'll be happy to help with checking and locking. Feel free to email me directly or stewards if necessary. Cheers. —Green Giant (talk) 14:25, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on Measuring Community HealthEdit

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)

Incorrigible Troll LTAEdit

Can you please Check this IP range for sleeper accounts, and also Globally + Locally block this range for at least a few months? Incorrigible Troll has recently been using this IP range to sock, and probably also to create a spree of sock accounts. He was serial socking here on Meta within the last 2 months, and he was IP socking on other wiki sites at least a couple of weeks ago (as far as I know). You can find out more about this LTA in this report. Thanks. LightandDark2000 (talk) 05:34, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

IP Range BlockEdit

Hello Green Giant,

I was on the train yesterday and was told that the IP which I was using, or rather the whole IP range mentioned above, is blocked (block ID #128109) due to "long term abuse".

I just wanted to let you know that this appears to be the IP range of the German rail system, and you are blocking all travelers who are using the train wifi system. I am not even sure how "long term abuse" can happen within this system since I cannot imagine anyone using this system for more than a couple of hours at a time. Well, I guess some commuting school kids who ride the train on a regular basis might be doing some nonsense on an equally regular basis.

The problem is that this general block sort of punishes all travelers on the German rail system, which doesn't seem quite fair...

Greetings from another IP off the train now, -- 12:40, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Thinking about this once more... The school kids would generally be commuting on regional short-distance trains which don't even have wifi. So even the school kids can hardly be held responsible for anything like "long term abuse". -- 14:07, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Steward - administrators - UnblockEdit

i need a unblock i have been blocking several times in wikis and all what i'm doing is explaining with definitions and fundaments and logical and emotional deductions why we need a world of free acces to resources like this wiki, i also think we need people let be steweard and administrators by themselves without the need of elections, but if we want to do it, we cn have steweard and administrators elected and steweards and administratos by his own study and learning in the community or steawards ad administrators "autodidactas" in all the wikis and also with any restriction on the number of editions and the date of joining to the community!

You still haven't demonstrating what legitimate contribution edits on the projects you intend to do after you are unlocked, if you didn't provide the certify, no any stewards has the good reason to unblock you. So please provide the certify what contribution edits you intend to do after you are unlocked. SA 13 Bro (talk) 15:38, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
But How without login i can't contribute brother. 2405:204:E206:740E:483F:3237:AD4E:97FE 10:45, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Emergency in KaWikiEdit

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. 18:01, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
