I am somewhat concerned with the tone of the blocked user (same person, multiple accounts) who has been posting on my userpage (see [1]) The last blocked user's edit summary suggests they made some kind of personal threat against me ([2]). I am also seeing similar problems on my userpage (note four blocked accounts vandalizing my page here). Is a rangeblock of the IP possible? Montanabw (talk) 20:14, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

@Montanabw: Severals accounts were created from the same IP addresses, but they are from different ranges, so a range block wouldn't be very useful. Matiia (talk) 02:17, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Well, thanks for what you have been able to do. Can you block the IP addresses? They've done so on this user in the past over on, where they've found at least 150 different accounts over the years. This sockmaster been bothering me over on since I was one of the people who busted them for mass socking about 8 years ago(!) I think they might reactivate their socking whenever they move or change ISPs, they seem to go for long periods of time inactive and then suddenly crank up again. Montanabw (talk) 20:50, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
@Montanabw: The ones I found are already blocked. Matiia (talk) 20:55, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Life is good, then. I suppose if they keep socking, then you can block the IP itself from creating accounts, but I suppose that can be drastic if it's an ISP or a business. Montanabw (talk) 20:57, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
I mean the IP addresses are already blocked. Matiia (talk) 21:00, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Reminder about Blocking consultation

Hello again,

The discussion about new blocking tools and improvements to existing blocking tools is happening on meta now and is in the final days.

Global block

Where do I find information on why a user is blocked? For example this one. --Traveler100 (talk) 18:15, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

@Traveler100: You'd have to ask the user who locked them. That user is locked because is a sock of A Den Jentyl Ettien Avel Dysklyver. Matiia (talk) 18:23, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your quick block of this Denver IP. Just thought I'd bring to your attention that the IP (and definitely the same person) was globally blocked for a week on February 14, so a longer block may be a good idea. See en:User:Bri/Denver LTA for context. Regards, Favonian (talk) 17:29, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

@Favonian: Thanks. I've re-blocked them for 2 weeks. Matiia (talk) 17:57, 23 February 2018 (UTC)


Hola Matiia. El usuario (Usuario:Tabarnia) está haciendo propaganda fascista con su actividad en Wikipedia. Véase su historial de contribuciones. Aparte de eso secuestra artículos, revirtiendo ediciones arbitrariamente, mintiendo reiteradamente en sus argumentos con afán de desacreditar al resto de contribuyentes de esta ENCICLOPEDIA LIBRE para poder actuar como si esto fuera su cortijo personal. Solicito por favor que se revise profundamente su caso. Muchas gracias. 00:12, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

No hay nada que yo pueda hacer. Y por favor, no siga evadiendo su bloqueo. Matiia (talk) 01:29, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

This is not the right place to request a unlock. Please make a request at SRG or email Matiia (talk) 15:58, 6 May 2018 (UTC)
But i can't request in SRG because this page is semi protected. I have already requested but Ruslik0 is not unlocking my account. Sir I'm accepted my behavior But now I will never do anything. But ruslik0 is not unlocking my account please you put the request in SRG. Please 2405:204:E709:BEDE:1F1A:913E:CAD5:2C9C 16:13, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

Be patient. Unlock requests take some time. I don't know, if your account will be unlocked, it's still to be decided. Matiia (talk) 21:26, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Help us design granular blocks!

Hello :-) The Anti-Harassment Tools team at the Wikimedia Foundation will start building these granular blocking tools in a few weeks and we've asked WMF designer Alex Hollender to help us make some wireframes so the tools are intuitive to MediaWiki users.

Tracked in Phabricator:
task T190350

We have a first draft of how we think this tool should work. You can read the full proposed implementation here but here are the significant parts:

  • Granular blocks (page, category, namespace, and file uploading) will be built on top of Special:Block. These blocks will function as if they were regular blocks and allow for the same options, but only take effect on specific pages.
  • We will add a new checkbox for "Block this user from the whole site" which will be checked by default. When it is unchecked the admin will be able to specify which pages, categories, and/or namespaces the user should be blocked from editing.
  • Granular blocks can be combined and/or overlap. (For example, a user could be simultaneously blocked from editing the articles Rain, Thunder, Lightning, and all pages inside the Category:Weather.)
  • Only one block is set at a time, to adjust what the user is blocked from the administrator would have to modify the existing block.
  • Block logs should display information about the granular block
  • When a blocked user attempts to edit an applicable page, they should see a block warning message which include information on their block (reason, expiration, what they are blocked from, etc.)
  • If a category is provided, the blocked user cannot edit either the category page itself and all pages within the category.
  • If the File: namespace is blocked, the user should not be allowed to upload files.

We like this direction because it builds on top of the existing block system, both a technical and usability wise. Before we get too far along with designs and development we'd like to hear from you about our prosposal:

  1. What do you think of the proposed implementation?
  2. We believe this should be an expansion of Special:Block, but it has been suggested that this be a new special page. What are your thoughts?
  3. Should uploading files be combined with a File namespace block, or as a separate option? (For example, if combined, when a user is blocked from the File namespace, they would neither be able to edit any existing pages in the File namespace nor upload new files.)
  4. Should there be a maximum number of things to be blocked from? Or should we leave it up to admin discretion?

We appreciate your feedback on this project's talk page or by email. For the Anti-Harassment Tools team, SPoore (WMF) (talk) , Trust and Safety Specialist, Community health initiative (talk) 20:49, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Done. Matiia (talk) 02:51, 26 May 2018 (UTC)


Please explain this lock. Please explain this to me in line with Global locks, Banned user, and please cite examples that this account is unacceptable as an LTA.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:35, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: It has always been our practice to lock socks of locked accounts. That's because I locked it. The page linked by you isn't a policy, it just lists a few common reasons and practice. Matiia (talk) 17:54, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
Then change the guidance, if it sits there as guidance and not the practice, then please fix it. If there is a practice please properly document so that the community can know the standards being set otherwise there is no ability to manage expectations and have accountability of actions.

FWIW I will dispute that this has always been the practice, though it may be the current practice. It is my opinion that a default practice like that is pretty much rubbish where subsequent accounts are not problematic. The practice pushes users to be problematic and to be part of the game. Deal with the problems that truly exist. Let those who can learn a lesson do so, learn to differentiate.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:49, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

That's a good point. Matiia (talk) 21:31, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Nicely cleaned up!

Hi Matiia. I want to thank you for fixing the crash site left behind by L O M G E R and putting all the pages back, including the community proposal to shut the Simple English Wikipedia. Ironic really, that one of the reasons they want to close us is because we attract vandals, and even the proposal to shut us down attracts a vandal! We just can't win :) Many thanks.

Request for IP block exemption

I’be been trying to edit the English Wikipedia from my phone over 4G recently, and due to my IP address range (2600:387:5:807:0:0:0:0/64), I haven’t been able to even when I’m logged in. I don’t know if you can grant IP block exemptions on the English Wikipedia, but if you can’t, can you please tell me whom I should go to? I’ve made over 10,000 edits there. Esszet (talk) 23:37, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

@Esszet: Hello. Does this happen only when using your phone? and if yes, do you use your phone to edit outside of enwiki? Matiia (talk) 01:56, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
So far, yes, but I’ve never tried to edit the English Wikipedia from anything else over 4G. If by "enwiki" you mean the English Wikipedia, then yes, I also use it to edit the English Wiktionary, where I’ve already been granted one. Esszet (talk) 02:18, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
@Esszet: okay, you can make a request at UTRS. I was asking as if you edit more wikis from your phone, we could grant you the global flag, but the local one should be enough. Matiia (talk) 02:31, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. Esszet (talk) 23:30, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
It’s been over a month now, and it still hasn’t been granted. Does it usually take this long? Esszet (talk) 13:55, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
@Esszet: no idea, I don't handle enwiki stuff, sorry. Matiia (talk) 20:44, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on Measuring Community Health

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)

Steward requests/Miscellaneous

Hi Matiia, I've seen that you're a steward and you're currently active. Would you mind taking care of a request I've opened last month in Miscellaneous but nobody has solved yet, please? Gheorghiosan (talk) 15:45, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

I'll have a look. Matiia (talk) 21:20, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for replying, but you missed the crux of the matter. I didn't open that request for 2 or 3 sockpuppets already blocked, I've opened it for other sockpuppets and for the sockmaster. In short I'm asking to: check if any other sockpuppets were created and used from the 4 proxy IP ranges I listed above that were blocked and that are linked to the already blocked socks (2 suspected accounts to start with are Fulgencio Kokomeci and MbretiBasha); ascertain that the sockmaster is user Ninonino (that wouldn't be difficult considering that I've listed a dozen of links proving the relation between the socks, the proxies, the IPs and Ninonino); taking the measures envisaged for this kind of abuse (which should be indefinite global blocks as it was done with Myeuurn and Baka Líte for the same reasons). Do you think you can make the necessary checks yourself? Gheorghiosan (talk) 15:20, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Okay, let's forget about detecting the sockmaster for the moment: what about detecting the other sockpuppets created using those proxies and not blocked yet (starting with Fulgencio Kokomeci and MbretiBasha)? Gheorghiosan (talk) 19:45, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

OK, thanks. Dude is abusing all the other wikis to do this kind of thing. And these are wikis where I am rarely if ever active. Drmies (talk) 03:55, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Did it again. Drmies (talk) 14:27, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Alright, how about now? And run CU, get a rangeblock going, an edit filter... User:Ajraddatz, can you do something? Drmies (talk) 20:13, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Rangeblocks are already in place, but IPs are cheap. I've protected your talk page for a little while. – Ajraddatz (talk) 20:17, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Emergency in KaWiki

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.

Hi Matiia. Hope all is well. With a quick check you can notice that my global account has been repeatedly block on enwp, enwq, svwp from among others over the past few weeks. I believe that my account was hacked somehow so I'm asking for your help to unlock the blocks after reviewing my edit history. I also understand that WMF has suspended my CU access as a result - which is not an issue for now, but I'd like to appeal that after I clean my record here first. Thanks in advance for your help. --Ciphers (talk) 14:47, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Is your account compromised (as you imply above), are you teaching a course, are you innocently caught in an autoblock, or otherwise what is causing this? Your edits on multiple wikis are, or have borderlined, disruptive, and it does not look to me like normal compromised behavior. Thank you, Vermont (talk) 14:58, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi, Vermont. As I said last night, I am teaching a course, but perhaps sharing the same IP with others might be causing this. I really don't know, that's why I'm asking a steward to investigate here. Much appreciate follow-through here, but I'd also appreciate a non-accusative tone if you'd like to further comment here. Thank you. --Ciphers (talk) 15:18, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
I apologize if you saw my tone as accusatory. My intent was to attempt to clear up the situation, not accuse you of any direct wrongdoing. Thank you, Vermont (talk) 15:27, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
I really appreciate the kind words here, Vermont. As you can see it can be very stressful knowing that your wiki-reputation is on the line after long years of contributions. Again, thanks a lot for weighing-in here!! --Ciphers (talk) 17:26, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
For the record, I'm taking a look at it as well as talking with other stewards about it. Matiia (talk) 15:21, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

adding this seems bizarre and when I undo it, I am also wondering why an experienced user will make such statements. Compromised account?

it should be linked in global group as oauth tester or something like this.--Cohaf (talk) 15:55, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Anyone with sysop or other advanced permissions has access to 2FA (without that user group). Vermont (talk) 15:56, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you both for weighing-in here. Feel free to check of course, but I don't think I've ever had the two-factor-authentication activated on any of my Wikimedia accounts before. Thanks. --Ciphers (talk) 16:04, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
@Ciphers: I noticed your account is still editing xwiki in the same fashion. Do you currently have control over the account? Thanks, Vermont (talk) 22:58, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Indeed it might be advisable to change the account's password (in order to terminate the sessions of other possibly logged in users). However, the talk page of User:Matiia does not seem to be the right place for this lengthy discussion you appear to be having. --Vogone (talk) 23:39, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
The more I looked the more this account looks to be really compromised. I suggest email reset of password as soon as possible. --Cohaf (talk) 23:46, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi guys, this is Ciphers here. I noticed that my main account was blocked globally (which is probably a good thing, given the shameful edit log that I noticed), so I created this new account to help resolve the issue. I'd like to retain access to my main User:Ciphers account and remove all the blocks, and I'm happy to do whatever it takes to do that. Would signing up for 2FA do the trick? should I start using VPN more regularly? something else? Thanks again for your help here, and best regards. --3d-copier (talk) 14:31, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

شكرا لك عزيزي علاء. هل يتسنى لك مراسلة المؤسسة نيابة عني؟ أعرف بعض الأشخاص هناك ولا أريد أن أنخرط في أمر يتعارض مع مصالحي هنا. سأكون شاكرا لك جزيل الشكر بطبيعة الأحوال. أخبرني وسأرسل لك إيميل لتأكيد طلبي هنا. تحياتي --3d-copier (talk) 16:53, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Página de usuario

Hola Matiia. Acabo de pasar por aquí, a pesar de que ya carezco del tiempo que tenía anteriormente, y me encuentro con esta página de usuario en la cual el usuario involucrado dice cosas malas del proyecto. Para ti, ¿Es algo inapropiado que requiera intervención? --Stïnger (会話) 22:31, 21 November 2018 (UTC).

@Stïnger: hola, he quitado lo que me ha parecido más inapropiado. Matiia (talk) 01:27, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

A request at CNR

Dear Matiia,

Sorry to bothering you again, but, we need this as soon as possible. Could you please take a look at CNR § WikiNusantara 2019? The period of scholarship offer is only around two weeks remaining, but we are struggling with low registered participants. If you think the request can be approved, we are very thankful for that.

If you see anything we need to fix beforehand, please let me know. Thanks for considering my request. ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 13:02, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

@Rachmat04: hi, sorry, but I can't edit CentralNotices anymore, my access was removed as I didn't enable 2fa. Matiia (talk)•
My apologies for not knowing this. I, then, will comment on the CNR session, hoping someone from CN admins obtain the attention. Thank you, ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 01:15, 30 November 2018 (UTC)


Hi. Actually, I just tried to set the default "support" to make it look like the others. But if I can not do this, that's fine.:) Greetings! --Editor D.S (talk)  00:58, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Any user is free to use the templates or not, if they don't do so, we don't modify it. It's up to them. Regards Matiia (talk) 01:05, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
Ah yes. Sorry for the little mistake. --Editor D.S (talk)  01:11, 20 December 2018 (UTC)


Hi, Their latest comment on the talkpage indicates their block should be longer. Thanks.--Cohaf (talk) 19:02, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Yes, done now. Matiia (talk) 19:06, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks.=)--Cohaf (talk) 19:08, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
