на какво се дължи блокажа - на репорт от дйингиби промакедон?


217.75.157.28 14:12, 17 January 2021 (UTC) Съдъържанието на бг уики се разминава с това на английското, което подвеждащо и използващо стара теория за тюркски произход на българите. Коригирам статията точни в тази посока, както и езикът, запазвам релевантни източници, още повече в самата статия има източници в подкрепа на индо-европейския (трако-илирийски) произход на българите. Отделно има и инфо за днк модерни тестове, така че текстът в оригиналния си вариант беше не само подвеждащ, но и с противоречаща си инфо. Не е редно да допускаме деизинформация на световната общност.

Hello, why I was blocked???--UeArtemis (talk) 08:35, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi, UeArtemis, I'm really sorry to hear that the bot has blocked you. It is extremely unusual for someone who isn't a sysop on bgwiki to delete large amounts of information from our RfAA page and we've had in the past bad cases of persistent vandalism, involving such acts. This is why the bot reacts with a short-term block. Nevertheless, in this case the block was obviously completely inappropriate, so I've lifted it. Truth is, the bot should've recognized the very edit that you reverted as the inappropriate one, but, unfortunately, the bot's logic isn't that advanced yet, and it fails to recognize many unusual acts of vandalism (not to mention that it's mostly focused on vandalisms in Bulgarian). Anyway, again, I'm very sorry for the inconvenience that the bot has caused you and I also sympathize with you for being a target for harassment. As a sysop, I've had my own share of such things, including cross-wiki harassment, like the one you're subjected to, so I hope it's curbed as soon as possible.

Crashroom, I'm afraid I can't recognize the language of your message. Doesn't look like any of the languages that use Latin. And clearly doesn't look like Bulgarian, as its only writing system is the Cyrillic one.
Anyhow, two points based on your contributions to bgwiki:
  • Your edits were reverted by a trusted patroller (and sysop, too). Instead of discussing the possible issue, you decided to just revert, in turn, the patroller's revert. Don't do that. If another user reverts your edits, discuss the issue. Do not engage in edit warring.
  • Once PSS 9 intervened and reverted your revert of the patroller's revert (yeah, it gets kind of messy, doesn't it), you reverted, again. And not once, but twice. And then the bot blocked you. For only two hours, mind you.
I find your stubbornness unconstructive and therefore I am not going to lift this block. Two hours isn't a long time to wait. I suggest you use it to familiarize yourself with how consensus drives Wikipedia and also its other pillars. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask. However, please make sure to write in an understandable language. You may also ask questions to all Bulgarian editors on bg:Уикипедия:Разговори.

PSS 9 block appeal 20210516200107Edit

Good Evening,

Can I please receive an adequate reason about why I have been blocked and am unable to edit the page of the Bulgarian singer RAINA when I am the person who has created more than 50% of the content within this page?

My last edit of the page was definitely not a 'Vandalism' because all edits were supported with a reliable 'source page'.

I would like to express my disappointment that I am no longer able to provide an up-to-date info about RAINA as I have been doing for the last 10 years or so.

I am looking forward to your response!

Many thanks, Georgi Agov

Hello, Georgi!
Sorry to hear that you've been blocked by PSS 9. I know how frustrating this can be! Unfortunately, we're talking about an event that happened more that a year ago. For security and privacy reasons I don't keep logs for such distant periods of time, so I can't tell exactly why did the bot react. However, browsing through the history of your edits, I see that the information that you added just before PSS 9 decided to block you, had been previously removed by a trusted patroller (indeed, one of the people who founded the Bulgarian-language Wikipedia). So, when the bot saw you adding that information again, against the patroller's judgement, it reverted your edit. Unfortunately, you entered that information once again and that is when the bot blocked you.
The bot had good reasons to impose a block. Edit wars are dangerous and can harm Wikipedia. I do think, however, that it had also overreacted by blocking you indefinitely. Perhaps the bot had already been alerted by some of your previous edits—the bot keeps tracks of the editors and their “reputation” (in terms of bot logic, not in our human sense)—which prompted it to use such block. Without the logs, alas, after so much time has passed, it's hard to tell.
Anyway, the block is clearly not needed anymore, so I'm lifting it. But please heed this advice: if you notice another editor removing information that you have added, especially if that editor seems experienced, DO make the effort to discuss the problem. DO NOT just introduce back your own edits. Ask the other editor what the issue with your edits is: on the talk page of the article, or, if you want to draw the attention of more editors, on Уикипедия:Разговори. Consensus is one of the pillars of Wikipedia!
Thank you for contributing to the free knowledge. But please also consider expanding your contributions to other topics. Being focused on a single topic raises questions, including of possible conflict of interest.
Kind regards,

Имам следния въпрос : Защо съм блокиран и не мога да редактирам информация в Уикипедия?
212.39.89.35 10:10, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

The IP address you are currently using, 212.39.89.35, is part of the network 212.39.89.0/24, which includes all addresses from 212.39.89.1 to 212.39.89.254. To the best of my knowledge, the IP addresses in this network are assigned by DHCP and are non-persistent, meaning that each time you connect to the internet, you get a different IP address.
In the past several days, different addresses from this network—but likely the same person behind them—have tried to harm Wikipedia. We cannot allow this. And because that person likely intentionally changes their IP address, hoping to avoid blocks, the bot, PSS 9, is programmed to block the whole network in such cases. The initial block is of very short duration—20 minutes to an hour—but as the vandalism continues after the block expires, the bot imposes longer and longer blocks.
In short, it's very likely that you are not able to edit because of some other person who happens to use the same Internet Service Provider as you. Unless, of course, you are the person who did all that. In any case, there is nothing more we can do here. The block will stay. We cannot allow Wikipedia to be harmed. If you are unhappy with this, talk to your ISP. If they agree to cooperate with us and block the access of their specific user who was vandalising Wikipedia, we'll lift the block.
Hope that answers your question.
— Luchesar • T/C 10:25, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
  Denied I'm now inclined to believe that you're, in fact, that same person who had tried harming Wikipedia, based on the comments in the edit summaries how you must not be blocked and how you will somehow block the administrators themselves. Not only am I not lifting the block imposed by the bot—I've actually blocked the network for a further whole month. And if the vandalism continues, it will be blocked again and for an even longer period of time—indefinitely, if needed. Harming Wikipedia is never tolerated.

Неколкократно бивам блокиран от бот PSS 9 за „вероятен вандализъм” и „злоупотреба”, като направени от мен разяснения и цитирания на страница „Беседа:Анабел Маркова”, както и промени на статията „Анабел Маркова”, биват заличени от текущите им версии. Моля, проблемът да бъде отстранен и правото ми за изказване на мнение на страниците за обсъждания и за подобряване на статиите в Уикипедия да бъде възстановено. (Простете за повторението, не видях знака, отбелязващ мястото за следващо обжалване.)

  Denied Your comments must include only your own signature. Using other people's signatures, even in the context of “copying” from another page, like you did here, is absolutely prohibited. If you want to quote somebody, there are other ways to do it, e.g. bg:Шаблон:Цитат-беседа. The bot did absolutely right to revert these edits of yours—and block you, once you started edit-warring. Don't do these things and you won't have problems with the bot.
I also advise you to heed what the other editor has been telling you: Wikipedia is not an online forum. And while you do have a point that you should be allowed to freely express your opinion, this freedom is not completely without limits. I strongly suggest that you change your style of presenting your arguments and of arguing in general. In particular, be much more concise and listen. If your arguments are rejected, bring better arguments, don't simply repeat the same ones.
