Blacklist removal request

Blacklist removal request I request removal of the names Giovanni Prinzi and Giuseppe Prinzi from the blacklist here, there is no reason that these names are blocked, please remove them, the inclusion of these names was certainly an error.

This is the blacklist, please, remove Giovanni Prinzi and Giuseppe Prinzi --> --Alice pasquini80 (talk) 18:35, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

They asked at my user page, and I have directed them to the correct place.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:22, 2 December 2017 (UTC)
So I do. Please direct your requests to Talk:Spam blacklist or Talk:Title blacklist where they belong. This is to have a track of requests made and because this way all admins can act on them and not just the people that might be watching this page or myself.

Subpages of Devoxx4kids

Hi MarcAurelio, I know. Sorry for that, we supposed to create more valid subpages but the training switched more in an experiment. We acted with young people (13-15 years old) who started to experiment Visual Editor and have create a lot of no sense content. All subpages can be cancelled. Thank you. --Ilario (talk) 16:12, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

uikipedi'as:Community Portal/Messages.php

Hola MarcoAurelio. Te escribo porque sé que entiendes mejor que yo de las cosas técnicas. En jbo:uikipedi'as:Community Portal/Messages.php hay una copia de lo que parece ser un archivo de configuración del software Mediawiki, obviamente tanto su título como su contenido no tienen nada que ver con la Wikipedia en cuestión ni cumple ninguna función. Empezando porque está en inglés cuando hoy la wiki ya tiene su interfaz traducida, además no se enlaza en ningún sitio, lo que dificulta comprender su existencia. No la mencionan en discusiones y parece que olvidaron su existencia tan pronto como se creó (¿fue creada por error?). El punto es que no tengo idea por qué en el pasado remoto alguien crearía un archivo .php como página wiki ni si se corresponde con alguna funcionalidad, hoy abandonada, de los comienzos de Wikipedia. Para mí debería borrarse, pero te escribo por si conoces algún motivo para lo contrario (¿en el pasado tenían alguna función las páginas wiki .php?). Agradeceré tu respuesta. Saludos, Metrónomo-Goldwyn-Mayer 14:58, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Hola Metrónomo. Entiendo que ese archivo fue puesto allí para que los usuarios tradujesen la interfaz y luego su contenido se subiese manualmente a la repo de MediaWiki. Con la existencia de translatewiki esas prácticas han quedado largamente obsoletas. He borrado la página. Un saludo. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:05, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

My IP block exemption rights don't work

Hi! Thanks for giving me the IP block exemption rights here. But after editing a few articles, I started seeing this message again:

"The IP address that you are currently using has been blocked because it is believed to be a web host provider. To prevent abuse, web hosts may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. You will not be able to edit Wikipedia using a web host provider. Since the web host acts like a proxy, because it hides your IP address, it has been blocked. To prevent abuse, these IPs may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. If you do not have any other way to edit Wikipedia, you will need to request an IP block exemption."

It says I should request an IP block exemption, which I already did as you know. I would be really happy if you fix the problem ongoing. Thanks.--Emir Özen (talk) 18:44, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

There's no longer a problem, thanks.--Emir Özen (talk) 16:51, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
Sorry Emir Özen I've been traveling. When that happens it is usually resolved assigning too a local IP block exemption on the project where you get the message. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:45, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
Not problem, thanks for explaining. Hope you're having a good time while travelling!--Emir Özen (talk) 17:32, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to Blocking tools consultation


The Wikimedia Foundation's Anti-Harassment Tools team is inviting all Wikimedians to discuss new blocking tools and improvements to existing blocking tools in December 2017 for development work in early 2018.

We are specifically contacting you for your ideas because you are one of the top users of the blocking tool on Meta. We think that your comments will help us make better improvements. You can post to the discussion in the language that you are most comfortable expressing your ideas.

Other ways that you can help
  1. Spread the word that the consultation is happening; this is an important discussion for making decisions about improving the blocking tools.
  2. Help with translation.
  3. If you know of current or previous discussions about blocking tools that happened on your wiki, share the links.
  4. Help summarize the discussion to share back to your wiki.

If you have questions you can contact me on wiki or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.

  • I apologize for posting in English.
  • Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

Just FYI...

I saw you locked Laysta54 - thanks for that. I'm trying to get that spammer patterns documented at c:User:-revi/ProstitutionKoreanSpam. That patterns have been around even before I edited Korean Wikipedia, and they're slowly turning 'xwiki'. Thanks anyway — regards, Revi 11:17, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for the info. Let me know if I can assist you with anything else. Regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:24, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
You can add Asdasdasd48456 (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser) to the list. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:26, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, that guy is interesting, frwiki. Such wow. The term itself is bit generic that titleblacklisting that will cause big side-effect.   — regards, Revi 11:40, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
