Unblock 2607:fb90::/32

Hello, I'm asking you to do us a small favor and unblock the entire 2607:fb90::/32 range that's affecting millions of people. The "one bad apple, everyone's a rotten egg" saying shouldn't apply here; it's simply unfair at best. I'm not asking you for much, really.

May you reconsider!

Sincerely, 2607:FB90:5444:A2CC:ADFC:10FC:DAB9:7FCA 18:35, 13 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

Please. 2607:FB90:2466:6CA4:ED16:AA31:B887:A099 01:39, 22 October 2018 (UTC)Reply


C'mon, unblock me in Wikipedia already. I want to edit pages related to sports and baseball. 15:58, 15 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

Your computer skills

Hi, I looked at your Wikipedia user page and was impressed about the computer stuff you mentioned. Would you say you are a natual at that or you just happen to really take an interest in computers? Do you memorize concepts easily like a pure genius? I assume you also got exceptionally high grades in school. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.

P.S. Some good whiskey is never too much. :-) 12:21, 25 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

Name Change


I would like to change my name from Creidhead to Christine Reidhead. The reason is because I didn't realize what I was doing when I signed up. I would rather use my real name. Please accept my request for name change. Thank you for your time.

Kind Regards

Creidhead - Sure,   Done. Your username is now Christine Reidhead. You'll be prompted to log back onto the meta project; make sure that you enter your new username when doing so. :-) Cheers - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:47, 1 July 2019 (UTC)Reply


Hi. I found out that Modernghettolicious is a MariaJaydHicky sock. Can you check it out. 11:41, 18 July 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi Oshwah! I see you are a user of MoreMenu. There is a new version that was just released. Would you like to help test it? If so, please refer to MoreMenu/beta#Installation. Or, if you'd like, I can edit your global.js and global.css for you :) You can also add custom links to the menus. This is more of an advanced feature, but since I know you're a developer, maybe you'll appreciate it. More at MoreMenu/beta#Customization. Cheers, MusikAnimal talk 02:03, 26 November 2019 (UTC)Reply

MusikAnimal - Sure, I'd love to help test it! :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 02:11, 26 November 2019 (UTC)Reply
Great :) I have updated your global.js and global.css accordingly. Let me know if you run into any issues. Many thanks! MusikAnimal talk 02:18, 26 November 2019 (UTC)Reply
MusikAnimal - No issues so far! I'm mostly just curious as to exactly what's different... Other than the more menu now being inserted to the right of the "User", "Page", and other moremenu tabs instead of the left, and the placement of the Copyvio detector link in the "Analysis" submenu instead of the "Tools" submenu under the "Page" tab, I haven't noticed other changes. Is there a changelog or documentation page that summarizes the changes and new features (if applicable)? Thanks :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 10:43, 17 December 2019 (UTC)Reply
Indeed, for Vector users there should be only minute visual differences. The big change was rewriting the gadget from scratch, and making it extendable and localizable. Thanks for helping test it. It's now stable and currently being rolled out to almost 40 wikis across 28 languages. MusikAnimal talk 17:57, 17 December 2019 (UTC)Reply
MusikAnimal - Ah, I noticed that a lot of the functions and operations were relocated and called from new locations. That's awesome! That's a big dependency and "ball and chain" restriction to free this gadget so that it can be freely extended and localized throughout each project. Congratulations, and well done! :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 21:55, 17 December 2019 (UTC)Reply


Flagging for your information addition. It should have no impact for you, though if it problematic then please add something to the respective talk page and let me know. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:17, 14 December 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi Billinghurst! Thanks for letting me know about the modification you made to the title blacklist on this project. I appreciate it very much! :-)
On a side note, I took a look at the diff and saw that you added the following code: .*\b\Oshwahb.*. I think that you perhaps meant to add it like this?: .*\bOshwah\b.*.
Also, a word of (slight) warning: The use of a word boundary immediately after "Oshwah" might not flag everything that's created with ill-intent (LTA abuse). Since you flagged this regex line with <newaccountonly>, we don't have to worry about possible false positive hits if someone were to, for example, create a new page. ;-)
I'm obviously not complaining or trying to critique you in any way; your edit did me a huge favor and I can't thank you enough for it. The code might just need to be fixed in order for it to function (assuming I'm correct - please let me know if I'm wrong), and a small modification made to it in order for it to perform how you intend and like for it to perform. ;-) Thanks again; I appreciate it a lot! :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 10:38, 17 December 2019 (UTC)Reply
Yep, that missing backslash was in error, thanks or noticing. With TBL I prefer to start with the minimum, easy to increase and to justify it. The person isn't going to stop, and I am not going to feed the troll. So ho hum this existing Mr. Maturity model. <shrug>  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:44, 17 December 2019 (UTC)Reply
Hi again, Billinghurst! No problem; always happy to help. And sure, that sounds good to me - just figured I'd give my two cents and call it good. ;-) Cheers, and thanks again! ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 10:52, 17 December 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi Oshwah. I suspected that Miss Show Business is a Evedentlyuser sockpuppet. S/he keep the same pattern [1][2] as before ([3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11]).
