Welcome to Meta!

Hello, Johannnes89. Welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Happy editing!

-- Meta-Wiki Welcome (talk) 17:27, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Special thanks...

... for reverting a fair share of the trash being included on many user's talk pages including my talk page on meta-wiki. It's unbelievable that I have had a high amount of alerts from three new sockpuppets today after logging in. Pinging @Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker: for special thanks for the same reason as well. Iggy the Swan (talk) 13:34, 8 July 2021 (UTC)

Images

Hello long-term victim.

I am unable to email you but I can reveal the images the accounts operated by Mike Matthews17 (Cez, Ron, Fez etc with numbers at the end) are of the same people. In addition, I labelled it as my own work simply by downloading and cropping if necessary. Thanks, Mike aka Mike6Matthews17 (talk) 09:49, 25 August 2021 (UTC)

Just stop uploading all these pictures. Johannnes89 (talk) 09:57, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
Initially I did not believe the LTA on the whole first sentence (specifically the fact I thought email can be sent to any user from the beginning) but then seeing the second part I had a look at all these links on my own email and clicked on them and they are linked to the same people's accounts. The LTA doesn't appear to have uploaded any more photos lately. Iggy the Swan (talk) 05:31, 30 August 2021 (UTC)

Glocking

Hi, I needed to use your list of contributions to find the right page for requesting glocking. I don't use meta.wikimedia.org much on my time as a registered user so I needed to find someone who has contributed to that page in order for me to request glocking against users as you done so recently. Iggy the Swan (talk) 16:43, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

Oh, I have also noticed uploading of two photos in total from both users who I'd requested for glocking so I'd nominated for deletion. Iggy the Swan (talk) 16:48, 22 September 2021 (UTC)
Ok if there are any questions let me know -- Johannnes89 (talk) 16:53, 22 September 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. I managed to put the request in the wrong place before fixing it shortly after. Pinging Tegel always helps as well as I didn't do that while adding the request. Iggy the Swan (talk) 17:02, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

Thank you

Thanks for clearing out vandalism that happened last month + today from various cross-wiki talk pages of mine as well as other pages among multiple namespaces. I can't believe this is still ongoing after I thought I have not noticed that sort of thing for a while. Iggy the Swan (talk) 16:41, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

@Iggy the Swan I feel you. Cannot imagine what drives people to carry on with this stupid vandalism for months/years. He will be blocked again and again until he finally loses interest in this nonsense. Johannnes89 (talk) 21:54, 3 February 2022 (UTC)
They are never getting away with it, not while more users notice what's going on. And the IP address range you've reported made edits going back before the original Mike Matthews17 account was created, at that point only a small amount of editors noticed the vandalism. When it comes to other wikis, more people become aware including us. Also being pinged all the time makes you revert across those different wikis as well, usually I am also pinged in the same edit along with others at times. I'm guessing some people on other wikis know what you mean re "Revert:LTA" if they had the affected pages on the watchlist, after all titles of some sources on articles are in their native language. Iggy the Swan (talk) 22:34, 3 February 2022 (UTC)
I forgot to mention: the LTA doesn't appear to edit in the English Wikipedia anymore by what I've seen from all global contributions. Who knows the interest is finally lost there. Iggy the Swan (talk) 08:48, 4 February 2022 (UTC)
I think he knows he'll be blocked very quickly in enWP while other projects might take longer because they are not as familiar with the troll -- Johannnes89 (talk) 08:58, 4 February 2022 (UTC)
Oh yes good point.
The German Wikipedia I've seen gets affected on occasions which includes my own talk page there where you and Robby.is.on take credit for getting rid of it before I eventually do. I think the English Wikipedia is the most popular version even though it appears that every user has a meta account when creating them on other Wikimedia projects. Anyway, the LTA has not edited on enWP for two months which may be a sign of losing interest. Iggy the Swan (talk) 21:36, 4 February 2022 (UTC)

Dein Revert

Ich habe dort nur das geschrieben, was ein generelles Problem der WMF und der anglozentrischen Leute hier ist. Das ist ein massives Problem, insbesondere ausgehend von monolinguistischen Anglophonen. Und von denen wimmelt es hier nur so. Ja, ich hatte mittlerweile auf deutsch geantwortet, und mir wurde auch auf deutsch geantwortet, bezeichnend für den Laden hier war das tumbe Antworten in einer falschen Sprache, ohne nachzudenken.
Wieder reinsetzen werde ich das aber nicht. Grüße vom Sänger ♫(Reden) 20:44, 12 February 2022 (UTC)

Dein Teilrevert

Hallo Johannes,

  1. Du hast mit https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Universal_Code_of_Conduct%2FEnforcement_guidelines%2Fde&type=revision&diff=22987603&oldid=22984701 einen Edit von mir teilrevertiert. Nach meinem Verständnis soll eine Übersetzung den Leser*innen den Inhalt des übersetzten Textes zugänglich machen, und dafür ist ein Hinweis auf die Projektseite imho sinnvoll.
  2. Noch eine kleine Frage: Der ursprüngliche Ersteller der Übersetzung hatte einen Halbsatz komplett gestrichen, ich habe ihn zumindest im en Original wieder hereingenommen. (Auf https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Fragen_zur_Wikipedia#Bitte_um_%C3%9Cbersetzungsdiskussion_zu_einem_Satz_auf_Meta habe ich da schon um Hilfe gebeten.) Weißt Du, ob der ursprüngliche Ersteller schon in geeigneter Form auf diese Ungenauigkeit angesprochen wurde?

--Himbeerbläuling (talk) 11:36, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

Moin @Himbeerbläuling, eine Übersetzung sollte vor allem das Original möglichst nahe abbilden. Für Erläuterungen oder Verständlichmachungen wäre die zugehörige Diskussionsseite oder einfach eine Extraseite geeigneter.
Leider verzichten die Enforcement Guidelines fast vollständig auf erklärende Wikilinks, damit muss es auch die Übersetzung tun. Wenn man über Wikilinks nachdenken würde, müsste im Original ein Link auf die globale Oversight policy eingefügt werden, dann könnte man in der Übersetzung einen Link auf die deutschsprachige Fassung setzen (dann aber auch nur diese und nicht die deWP Oversight-Richtlinien).
Den von dir erwähnten Halbsatz hat glaub ich neulich bei der AdminCon auch schon jemand angesprochen. Vermutlich wurde er einfach vergessen (z.B. falls der Übersetzer mit einer internen Textversion gearbeitet hat, die nicht vollständig dem entsprach, was dann als englischsprachige Richtlinie veröffentlicht wurde). Danke fürs Einfügen in den deutschen Text, es dürfte nichts dagegen sprechen, ihn auch zu übersetzen.
Bei der Gelegenheit generell Dankeschön für die zahlreichen Präzisierungen, man merkt dem Text an, dass er ursprünglich mit nem Übersetzungstool erstellt wurde. Johannnes89 (talk) 12:28, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
Hallo Johannes, schau Dir mal folgenden Diff an: https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Universal_Code_of_Conduct%2FEnforcement_guidelines%2Fde&type=revision&diff=22671706&oldid=22671664 Da war der Satz im en Original drin, nur in der de Übersetzung fehlte er dann. Finde ich schon seltsam. Sehr seltsam sogar. Auf der https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:AdminConvention_2022/Ergebnisse Seite sehe ich allerdings keine relevanten Ergebnisse, ist aber vielleicht auch nicht üblich das weit auszuwalzen. LG --Himbeerbläuling (talk) 12:58, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
Wie gesagt: Die wahrscheinlichste Erklärung ist für mich, dass dem WMF-Übersetzer eine interne Textversion vorlag, die nicht 100% identisch mit dem kurz vor seiner Übersetzung veröffentlichten englischen Text war.
Bzgl. der AdminCon: Das war nur irgendeine Nebendiskussion über Übersetzungs-Ungenauigkeiten, nichts was in den Ergebnissen festgehalten wurde.
In jedem Fall: It's a wiki, Fehler passieren und können genauso wieder korrigiert werden. Du hast ihn ja zum Glück gefunden, damit kann der Satz nun nachträglich übersetzt werden. Johannnes89 (talk) 13:40, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

That was lucky

[1] - imagine what would have happened if the stewards did g-lock the user you accidentally/mistakenly reported instead of some IP address, since I do recognise the registered user as one of the experienced vandal reverters. Iggy the Swan (talk) 18:08, 11 July 2022 (UTC)

Yes I misclicked 🙈 already apologized to the user off wiki. On the other hand this could have been an opportunity to check if the stewards actually take a closer look at the reports before locking an account 😉 Johannnes89 (talk) 18:33, 11 July 2022 (UTC)

Cross-wiki vandal

Thanks for ensuring a global lock of this sockpuppet cross-wiki vandal. The RfC case is now opened for a discussion. Nice day. Vs6507 11:47, 30 July 2022 (UTC)

user pages

If a user page is article based, then please just delete the text. There is no requirement to delete it. Let its history stand if it is inoffensive, and we just wish to stop it propagating through the wikis.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:55, 9 August 2022 (UTC)

ok, thanks for the advice :) --Johannnes89 (talk) 13:19, 9 August 2022 (UTC)

A question

Hello, Johannes. Does the following account name violates any username policy?

  1. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer_Diskussion:Ursulaoffice

Thank you, and happy editing! --Victor Trevor (talk) 20:45, 11 August 2022 (UTC)

Hi @Victor Trevor, thanks for asking. The account name is fine according to de:Hilfe:Benutzerkonto anlegen#Ungeeignet. Best --Johannnes89 (talk) 05:04, 12 August 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting...

... as usual. Initially, I believed that 'Sylvia the Sloth' was actually 'Selwyn the Sloth', when I had a look at the alerts and notices after checking all of my own watchlist on Wikipedia but you are definitely right in identifying the correct sock master, otherwise I could have reported that separately with the wrong sock master name. The global contributions seen by us are obviously the work of one person, whether that is his real name or not but that saved me possible embarrassment if I provided the wrong sock name to the stewards watching SRG. The user page that I have read on another wiki is an obvious clue in case you have not read it yet. Iggy the Swan (talk) 15:57, 7 September 2022 (UTC)

Selwyn the Sloth seems to be a Mike Matthews17 sockpuppet as well so reporting Sylvia the Sloth as lock evasion of Selwyn wouldn't be wrong ;) --Johannnes89 (talk) 16:49, 7 September 2022 (UTC)
And Sylvia the Sloth appears to be reported twice along with another sockpuppet named Keira the Koala which was CU confirmed this afternoon but you were not needed to revert as someone else already did. Glad to think of naming things wrong wouldn't be the case of being incorrect as the result should still be the same. Iggy the Swan (talk) 18:05, 7 September 2022 (UTC)

Admin on meta?

Hi, thanks for your work for maintaining meta. I think you will make a good admin on meta, I hope you do consider and will see your WM:RFA soon. Thanks once again. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:09, 5 October 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for suggesting a RfA, I was already considering it, as it might be helpful when patrolling recent changes :) --Johannnes89 (talk) 21:03, 5 October 2022 (UTC)
Seems smooth for your RFA thus far, have fun mopping :). Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 06:52, 6 October 2022 (UTC)

User:Iggy Ap Alarch

I had a look at the user content on this page, as well as the name itself, it looks like there is information which I don't think should be visible to everyone. 1. "Alarch", according to Google Translate, is Welsh for "Swan" which could translate in English to "Iggy the Swan" but I don't think that's clear cut impersonation unlike a few others. 2. I have a feeling the date after the word "born" was stolen from my English Wikipedia user page which is below the swan picture which I don't own it. 3. There are probably numerous people with the same name as the one visible who have that birthdate, not sure if that is an issue going on. I think you know having a Meta user page would make that viewable to every other wiki which does not have a local user page. I am wondering if you agree that page should be deleted or not, aside from the obvious reasons. Iggy the Swan (talk) 16:02, 12 October 2022 (UTC)

such user pages are usually deleted as soon as the account is locked, that's what happened in this case as well --Johannnes89 (talk) 06:04, 13 October 2022 (UTC)

Congratulations, dear administrator!

  Congratulations, Johannnes89! 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 Meta:Admin handbook to be useful. Please also check or add your entry to the Template:List of administrators. You're also allowed to subscribe to the metawiki-admins private mailing list. Again, congratulations and welcome to the team.

Congratulations. welcome! --Sotiale (talk) 04:59, 13 October 2022 (UTC)

Thank you! :) --Johannnes89 (talk) 05:46, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
Wouldn't make a difference to the outcome, I would have voted for support as well if I was aware of the RFA. It would not have mattered about not voting in this clear 100% outcome. Glad you are now able to delete pages containing nonsense in the future such as examples of the user page I linked above (which is now deleted thankfully after locking). Iggy the Swan (talk) 17:58, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
thanks :) Johannnes89 (talk) 18:42, 13 October 2022 (UTC)

The filter

Thanks Johannnes89. I'll check edits of those IP ranges, and implement the filter you suggested. Plantaest (talk) 12:01, 15 October 2022 (UTC)

Q?

Hi ,Dear Johannnes89 , Have I made wrong edits on meta, you will forgive me, I have a lot of experience in fighting vandalism, for rights information, if you want, you can see my contributions on my Hindi Wikipedia, I know, that I am good on meta I may have failed to contribute, therefore, I want the rights on meta, not for your hobby, but to remove the vandalism of extreme speed, if you think that my contribution on meta is of no value, then I can edit wikipedia on meta I will stop doing this, I did not ask mykola7 for the rights of the patrollers, only I was trying to know if I am going on the wrong path somewhere, I know that they should follow the advice given to me I am also strange that how am I contributing on Wikipedia or Meta, when I do not have enough time to do this work, but I am doing it, I am on the right path and my intention is good, God With me, I have ever given you my full support, I believed in your ability, so It doesn't matter, if possible, please forgive me if I have said something wrong to you, but just wanted to know and am I really worthy of that right.Kinds regards →  คⅴīгค๓ ([ʆεt'ς tαʆƘ🇮🇳])← 19:39, 4 November 2022 (UTC)

Hi Aviram7, I consider your contributions on Meta to be valuable and I'm thankful for your help in fighting vandalism.
First of all the right way to request patroller rights is RFH according to Meta:Patrollers (and even if it wasn't specifically mentioned, one should usually choose the dedicated Meta pages instead of user talk pages for admin/bureaucrat/steward requests in my opinion). It feels even more wrong to ask another admin on his user talk page if the previous RFH-request was just ten days ago and you don't mention it at all.
Most of your edits I saw are of good quality, even though some show room for improvement [3][4].
Your previous request [5] was due to running into abuse filters sometimes – an issue which is resolved since you got the autopatrolled right two weeks ago. As I see that many of your edits are mobile edits, may I recommend TwinkleGlobalMobile?
Personally I would like to see some more edits on autopatroll before I think patroller rights are in order, e.g. another two weeks, getting patroller rights one months after autopatroll. --Johannnes89 (talk) 20:35, 4 November 2022 (UTC)


Dear Johannnes89,Yes, I admit I did wrong, but I want to correct my mistakes, I TwinkleGlobalMobile? don't know how to add this to your global.js, can you tell me when should i request for patrollers rights? But you must have seen that some userpages were nominated to be removed, in which promotional links were present, on our Hindi Wikipedia, if the member is using your member page for the webhost, whether it has a promotional link or not Please see We first remove userpage content in accordance with Wikipedia's policies, only when tagged for deletion when a user has repeatedly added promotional material to your userpage. per Wikipedia:Deletion policy#Explicit abuse of Wikipedia as a web host , There is no abuse filter for users page on hindi wikipedia like available here on meta, i requested them for autopatrollers, only after checking my edit they gave me these rights, i use Autopatrolled for those userpages I would like to vandalize the larger community like Wikipedia and Meta, and use patroller's right to remove explicit vandalism or spamlinks. And wanted to help other administrators, stewards and patrollers with authority to mark the edits of other users.Kind regards →  คⅴīгค๓ ([ʆεt'ς tαʆƘ🇮🇳])← 02:57, 5 November 2022 (UTC)
Dear Johannnes89, I have setup TwinkleGlobalMobile and he currently work, thanks for informationing me for this great twinkletool mobile. I'm waiting for you're reply. Kinds regards →  คⅴīгค๓ ([ʆεt'ς tαʆƘ🇮🇳])← 06:56, 5 November 2022 (UTC)
This [6] (lines 19-21) is an example how to correctly load TwinkleGlobal & TwinkleGlobalMobile.
As I said in my previous comment, I would like to see some more edits from you on autopatroll before I think patroller rights are in order, e.g. asking for patroller rights one month after autopatroll rights were granted. Johannnes89 (talk) 10:24, 5 November 2022 (UTC)
Well, TwinkleGlobal & TwinkleGlobal Mobile are both reload on correct time, If you don't mind then I want to ask you one last question, can you give me some other good advice or advice other than this, I want to learn something new from you. Kind regards →  คⅴīгค๓ ([ʆεt'ς tαʆƘ🇮🇳])← 10:56, 5 November 2022 (UTC)
my advice would be to just relax, enjoy contributing and take your time to gain some more experience :) Johannnes89 (talk) 17:00, 5 November 2022 (UTC)
Dear Johannnes89, thanks for suggestion to me And you also take care of yourself and I pray to you deities that you become the best and best judge of the country.kind regards →  คⅴīгค๓ ([ʆεt'ς tαʆƘ🇮🇳])

SRG

Saw this page yesterday, I was thinking why the username "Blablubbs" was just after a bullet point which could have meant that user was on the list to lock all the accounts on the list. I'm just glad that Blablubbs was not global locked unlike others. I was definitely sure the steward knew what they were doing and locked the correct accounts. It would have been embarassing to lock the wrong account. I would think they would remove global locks if mistakes were made though I don't know any instances of that happening. Iggy the Swan (talk) 18:04, 24 November 2022 (UTC)

wouldn't worry about that. Stewards know the name Blablubbs – and even if they didn't: by clicking the „lock all“ button, only those accounts included in the {{MultiLock}}-Template are getting locked :)
(by the way: that's why this edit [7] was useful, your removal [8] probably meant that the Steward had to lock the accounts separately) Johannnes89 (talk) 19:56, 24 November 2022 (UTC)
I didn't know how that works. I am going to monitor all these accounts listed here and see if the steward can lock them all in quick succession instead of what happened here as Hasley locked the listed socks in three minutes in the section I messed around with. DarkMatterMan4500 did the useful edit and I'm sorry for reverting that. Iggy the Swan (talk) 20:23, 24 November 2022 (UTC)
Ok, I had a look at a different list of users belonging to the same MultiLock template [9] and found out the same steward locked them all and looked like the time displayed was exactly the same for each of the accounts. Without me making the removal [8], I would have saved the steward some time. Iggy the Swan (talk) 09:39, 26 November 2022 (UTC)

User:Atac2

Since i dont have autopatroller right, please help me place {{WMF-legal banned user}} on that user page. Thanks! Tryvix1509 (talk) 10:16, 4 December 2022 (UTC)

@Tryvix1509 this template is for exclusive use by the Wikimedia Foundation. Let them decide which accounts they want to tag with this template (@WMFOffice fyi).
By the way: When reporting abusive usernames to SRG using Twinkle [10] you might want to use the checkbox „hide username“ in order to display it like this [11] and avoided mentioning the username in your edit summary. Johannnes89 (talk) 10:41, 4 December 2022 (UTC)
Yeah i see that check box but i forgot to tick that. Thanks for reminding me Tryvix1509 (talk) 10:49, 4 December 2022 (UTC)
