Recent trollEdit

Hello Hasley, a colleague of mine on the English Wikinews received an intimidating email from an account containing many Bs in its name, making threats against a sysop on another community, which you locked shortly afterwards. Is their email access automatically revoked? Thanks, Heavy Water (talk) 19:02, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Heavy Water. Their email access is, indeed, revoked, because locks prevent them even from logging into their account. Best Sgd. —Hasley 19:49, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please whitelist User:Styyx on CVNEdit

I don't know why but this user was blacklisted on CVN, I have checked the block log of all projects they are active, but nothing showed up. I believe this is a bug or something, please whitelist them, thanks.--Lemonaka (talk) 22:58, 19 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done. Sgd. —Hasley 23:01, 19 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I'm not logged my account in, so I'm reporting this account here. Reason: LTA/Impersonation. Thanks! – 2405:4802:1AB:E140:91F9:4320:8977:E239 14:35, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Open meetingEdit

Hello, all. The mw:Editing team is starting a new project, mw:Edit check. They are particularly seeking the views of RecentChanges patrollers and other reviewers. One of the open questions is: When should the visual editor encourage people to add a citation?

The meeting will be this coming Friday, 3 March 2023. More information is available at mw:Editing team/Community Conversations#3 March 2023. I hope that you will be able to attend, but if you aren't, please consider leaving your advice to the team on the talk page. They would particularly value hearing about the citation standards at different Wikipedias, and also what you think the biggest problem is with the first edits made by new editors.

Necesito ayudaEdit

Hola, te hablo en español porque no soy un hablante fluido del inglés. Ya habia visitado wikipedia en varias ocasionas, sin embargo nunca habia hecho una contribucion. Hoy quería editar una pagina por primera vez y me sale que mi ip esta baneada por "Long term abuse", hasta el 21 abril. Me gustaría que me pudieras indicar la razón del bloqueo, si ha sido un error o lo que sea. Si te ayuda mi Ip es

Hola. El bloqueo no está dirigido a ti. La razón de este es que un vándalo ha usado el rango de direcciones en el que estás, lo que nos ha obligado a bloquearlo todo. Si continuas teniendo problemas, puedes acudir al canal de IRC #wikimedia-ayudaconnect, donde te podremos atender con mayor celeridad. Sgd. —Hasley 01:58, 15 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request global IP blocks for 2001:448A:60A0:0:0:0:0:0/44Edit

Guys, please make global block 2001:448A:60A0:0:0:0:0:0/44 from editing the sitewide of across Wikimedia projects because it was used by many LTA suspected user, especially LTA Lampung for doing any cross-wiki abuse since 2016.... Thanks..... 2001:448A:1021:28B1:C59F:A812:6C71:A565 00:39, 16 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have amended one of the global filters to manage this as a TLD, it fits into the problematic domains that should not be appearing in small/medium wikis.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:54, 19 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Loke GustafssonEdit

Hi, I just noticed that you set a global lock of Loke Gustafsson. A few weeks ago I investigated sv:Special:Contributions/Loke Gustafsson, see e.g. sv:Diskussion:Bojkotten av internationella matematikerkongressen 2022. A young maths-interested person with that name exists in the real world[1][2], so at the time I could imagine at least three different possibilities:

  1. Loke Gustafsson the person is behind both the Loke Gustafsson account and the other Remitbuber accounts
  2. Loke Gustafsson the person was impersonated by the person behind the Remitbuber accounts
  3. Loke Gustafsson the person created the Loke Gustafsson account but not the others, just unwittingly translated Remitbuber material, by his own admission at least partially automatically (and it shows...)

As you might imagine, I'm not too enthusiastic about automatic translations of these rather weak articles, regardless of who created them, so I'm not at this point asking for an unlocking. I'm still a bit curious about the reasoning behind the global lock. What do you think about the likelihoods of my three scenarios, and do you think there are other scenarios that I've overlooked? Could Special:CentralAuth/Impraforad be a new Remitbuber account? // Essin (talk) 20:14, 20 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Essin. The person behind Remitbuber has disclosed in the past his real-life identity. For this and other reasons (which I will not elaborate for privacy's sake), I can safely say that the account Loke Gustafsson is definitely not the real Gustafsson, but one of the dozens of socks used by Remitbuber.
As for Impraforad, it is indeed another sock of Remitbuber. Accordingly, I have locked that acount. Thank you for your message, Sgd. —Hasley 13:59, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, this is useful information. I will follow up on this on svWP. // Essin (talk) 16:15, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unblock RequestEdit

Hi, I would like to request an unblock from all Wikipedias. I apologize for any rules I may have broken. I will try to be more constructive this time. I appreciate it -- 03:45, 30 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
