Round 2 Re-submission of Arc.heolo.gy proposalEdit

Hi there Ruslik,

I have decided to reapply for the Round 2 of the 2016 Project Grant applications.

I selected to create a new proposal, and it seemed to simply overlay the new information on the old application page, therefore leaving my updates and revisions on the Round 2 version attached to the "Past Proposals" link to the application.

Do you know how I would get this updated version bumped into the "Current Proposal" sections?

QuestionsEdit

Why did you block me? Contact me- thomas_meriel@hotmail.fr


Why did you block me? All I did was edit and improve Raymond Felton’s page.

Why did you block me because of „long-term-abuse“, which I never have committed?

כתובת IP חסומהEdit

Blocked IPEdit

Hi, I ask you to unblock my IP address

Start of block: 16:27, 31 December 2016 Expiration of block: 16:27, 31 December 2017

Thanks in advance -- Hi, can you please unlock the IP range 89.144.221.0/24. This is a dynamic IP range and will also block unblamably users. Thanks in advanced

The reason given is Long-term abuse. * Start of block: 18:41, 7. Mai 2018 * Expiration of block: 18:41, 7. Mai 2019


Hi please unblock: 213.162.73.0/24 as this is an IP assigned automatically by the provider T-Mobile in Austria. So generally blocking it due to abuse my exclude the one or other but prevent a lot of people from contributing to wikipedia.

Block IPEdit

Hello,

I have just logged into my account after moving to Israel and have discovered my entire IP range has been blocked. This seems somewhat excessive?

"Your current IP address is 185.3.147.179, and the blocked range is 185.3.146.0/23. Please include all above details in any queries you make."


--Urbanplay (talk) 17:29, 16 June 2018 (UTC) This happened to me as well. Maybe this is due to the fact that I use an USB-stick for my internet access. Please unblock this IP asap because I have not misused Wiki in any way. The error message was: "Deine aktuelle IP-Adresse ist 109.40.129.228 und der gesperrte Bereich ist 109.40.129.0/24. Bitte beziehe alle obigen Einzelheiten in all deinen Anfragen ein."

-- Must ask you 'cause I can't understand why you blocked my IP 46.211.0.0/16. Hope you answer to me. good day!

BoiagialloEdit

I am user en:User:Boiagiallo-edits: I made several edits in en.wiki and it.wiki, but unlogged IP 2.239.136.182-it.wiki, during April 2013 for to improve and to start several articles regarding Italian food and related articles. I used a computer in a public location en:User talk:2.239.136.182: obvious that computer, and related IP, was in charing use with other users, but an Italian admin globally locked my account [Boiagiallo], wich is used by me alone. I leave a post in Italian discussion of admin, but he ignored me. Admin was looking for other editors, who edit in articles regarding history and sports, but those users are not my friends and I don't know them! If you global unlock [Boiagiallo], I can continue to improve many articles in many languages: articles regarding Italian food and related articles! I made request here. Now I can not log in: my actual and dinamic IP is 151.42.194.47

ApologyEdit

Everyone... Let me talk...

It all started in 2014/2015 (I think) when I created a Wikipedia account. I was exaggerating the sizes of UY Scuti at the time. I now know that UY Scuti is only 1,708 ± 192 solar radii.

I came back in June 2017. I wanted to help make useful contributions to the encyclopedia. Everything turned out well for the first 2-3 months. However, things changed. Some users started to argue against me, especially when it came to star sizes.

Then, when I tried to introduce more information, the other users didn't like it and started to want to get me blocked. They succeeded. Why would they pick on me? Yes, why me? Why are they always saying that everyone else is right (not in the case of wikipedia:WP:TRUTH, but in encyclopedic contribution terms) and I am wrong?

But things took a turn for the worse. My archnemesis, Sasha Primerov, started insulting me on wikipedia:es.wikipedia.org . He got both of us blocked indefinitely as a result. My niece, friend, and archnemesis made their own Wikipedia accounts on my computer without my consent. My niece was making disruptive edits to wikipedia:List of largest stars, my friend was editing in bible verses even though it is vandalism, and my archnemesis was making personal attacks. All of our accounts got involved in a sockpuppet investigation and all of them were banned, and my account was globally locked. All of this is the truth.

Everyone...

Please, in 4 months, let me come back. Please unlock my account and inform an administrator to unblock me. Not now, but in 4 to 5 months, to complete the wikipedia:Wikipedia:Standard offer.

My only intention was to help build an encyclopedia. I really don't want to be globally locked. After all, Wikipedia is «the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.»

I don't hate the people who think that I am wrong and that I should be blocked. I actually like all of you, guys. Just please let me contribute to the encyclopedia.

Please, I promise to never let anyone make a Wikipedia account on my computer again. I also promise that I will avoid the behavior that got me blocked at all times and make useful contributions.

Please, give me a second chance. I am just a teenager living in wikipedia:Russia, and I want to make Wikipedia more reliable than it is today.

I am very sorry for the incidents and thank you very much, in advance.

Reason for IP blocking?Edit

Hello, Ruslik,

I've been informed, that my IP address (46.211.99.7 from the blocked range 46.211.0.0/16) is currently blocked by you since 20.07.18. May you detalize, what is meant by "Long-term abuse" in my case? Is this a problem of my mobile internet operator - and if so, may it be resolved in some more sophisticated way?

Here is the quotation (in my native language (UKR)):

Hi, sorry, not sure where to post this. My "IP range" (185.69.144.0/23) has been blocked for so-called "long term abuse". I know I'm not responsible for anything of the sort and I am the only one at this address (though not sure what it means by IP range). Would it be best to create an account, or would this still happen? Thanks.

Pleas unlock IPEdit

Dear Rusliko, I tried to create an account to contribute to Wikipedia, but I got the reply that my IP adress 82.113.106.8 is blocked, since it is part of the IP-range 82.113.106.0/24, due to long-term abuse. Since I have never worked with Wikipedia before, this seems to be a fault. Could you please unlock my IP? With many thanks in advance and best regards, Sebastian

IP blockedEdit

Dear Sir/Madam, you have blocked my IP address range (212.95.5.0/24), marked "your current IP address is 212.95.5.218." for "Long-term abuse" Would you please tell me what seems to be the problem here? I am not aware of any "abuse", I am doing proper historical research, I cite all sources. I spent quite some in libraries to find out about this forgotten general. Now that I am retired, I can afford to do so. Isn't wikipedia supposed to be about extending knowledge?

Yours sincerely,

Laurent

Hi Ruslik0,

I just wanted to create a new page on wikimedia and read about I am blocked. So, I have no idea what´s wrong more than an old e-mail-adress that´s corrected now. Please unblock or tell me details whatever was going wrong. I have not edited my existing wikimedia page since years or made changes to any other page. Greetings! Martin Lowack Well, going back in my chronic I do not find the page where they told me that i am blocked, so I cannot tell the IP and whatelse informations you need to identify me. If I click on "create page on this wiki", there is a different notification now (does not exist...) a mystery to me what happens here.

Hi I'm not sure on the process here, but I am trying to create a new account and it says my IP address is withing a range of blocked IP addresses so I can't. This is obviously something I have no knowledge or involvement of and have never had a Wikipedia account before.

I was hoping to simply create a page and log back out can you let me know what I need to dp/prove to be allowed to do this.

I am the editor of Ukrainian Wikipedia. I have a request for a global block to Vujko Mytró (https://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9A%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%B8%D1%81%D1%82%D1%83%D0%B2%D0%B0%D1%87:%D0%91%D1%83%D1%87%D0%B0%D1%87-%D0%9B%D1%8C%D0%B2%D1%96%D0%B2), who is already blocked in English Wikipedia and Russian Wikipedia (https://guc.toolforge.org/?by=date&user=%D0%91%D1%83%D1%87%D0%B0%D1%87-%D0%9B%D1%8C%D0%B2%D1%96%D0%B2). Among other things, it has more than 50 blockades on Ukrainian Wikipedia, as well as harassment of users from outside Wikipedia, such as Facebook (the latter has a decision of the Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests: Вікіпедія:Запити на арбітраж/Переслідування користувачем Бучач-Львів (новий)). But he continues to persecute and retrieve. Ukrainian Wikipedia administrators do not react in any way. He supplanted many adequate editors. Therefore, Vujko Mytró, who is blocked for such actions in two Wikipedias, should be blocked globally. Thank you very much --Jphwra (talk) 18:47, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

3 бессрочных блокировки по ошибке в литовской ВикипедииEdit

Добрый день! Около недели назад 3 участника литовской Википедии (w:lt:User:Sociaken, w:lt:User:Kaulaz и w:lt:User:Nojucka) были бессрочно заблокированы по ошибке. Одним словом, администраторы подумали, что все эти 3 участника якобы являются моими куклами (см. w:ru:Википедия:Многоликость), но это не так! Вы можете в этом убедится, сравнив мой ip-адрес с ip-адресом этих кукол. Администраторам данного раздела я уже писал, но они на это никак не реагируют. Прошу разобратся с этим беспорядком. --7elteven (talk) 18:32, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

TwoHorned and RistoEdit

Hi Ruslik0,

Regarding the request at [2]. The request was rejected with the reason: Not a cross-wiki case.

However, when comparing the TwoHorned/Xsaorapa with the Risto case, then it appears as if the decision for global locks are arbitrary and not consistent.

Risto was globally locked only due to socking. Vermont explained here that Risto's lock has nothing to do with a content dispute. Vermont said, Risto's lock was in response to their creation of a sockpuppet to evade blocks on multiple projects. That is unambiguous cross-wiki abuse. Further, after their lock they continued creating sockpuppets, and are still evading their lock and blocks.

TwoHorned/Xsaorapa, on the other hand, in addition to their creation of a sockpuppet to evade blocks on multiple projects, also did the following:

  • Violations of indefinite ban on English and French wikipedia and wikiquote many times with many accounts, cross-wiki disruption, multiple conduct-related blocks on their initial account, Hundreds of socks and sock IPs
  • Using 2, 3 or more socks in vote stacking (several socks voting in the same vote).
  • Using socks with the goal of changing the consensus in talk page discussions (several socks discussing on the same talkpage to turn the consensus in the sock's favor). Many examples, even in RfC and dispute resolution pages (for example, where two or more socks were discussing against another user in a dispute resolution!)
  • Vandalism, for example deleting core content at wikidata
  • Edit-warring with several socks in the same articles, Blanking and censorship vandalism, BLP violations and character assassinations of BLP people, for example of those he alleges to be Zionists, Neocons
  • Personal attacks, harassment, hounding, defamation, intimidation, and stalking, spreading false and misleading claims, using socks for harassment and recruiting meatpuppets
  • Creation of a hundreds of sockpuppets and IP socks to evade blocks on multiple projects, unambiguous cross-wiki abuse.

Risto did not engage in this type of extreme disruptive behaviour, Risto only had a couple of 'normal' content disputes with a few editors. TwoHorned, in addition to the same kind of cross wiki abuse as Risto, did a lot more additional abuses. But there is a discrepancy when Risto was globally locked and TwoHorned/Xsaorapa was not globally locked.

It could be understandable if both Risto and TwoHorned/Xsaorapa were locked, it would be understandable if only TwoHorned was locked, but it is not understandable that only Risto is locked. The other difference betweeen these cases is that in the case of Risto, an admin has asked for a global lock of Risto, which would mean that only requests done by admins are taken seriously? Can you please help me understand why Risto was globally locked while TwoHorned was not globally locked.

See here for recent discussions on Risto and on [3]. --დამოკიდებულება (talk) 11:15, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

It was up to your to make this case, which you did not do. Ruslik (talk) 20:52, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
thanks for your reply, Ruslik. you mean, I should have added more explanations to the case? Are the explanations above detailed enough? --დამოკიდებულება (talk) 21:51, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Notification about a grant requestEdit

Hi.

As someone who commented about my grant request (including the talk page) last year requesting funding to create the GlobalWatchlist extension, I thought you might want to know that I have requested another grant to continue development. You can see the new request at Grants:Project/DannyS712/Continued work on GlobalWatchlist extension - if you support this, I hope you'll consider endorsing the request.

My apologies if you were already aware of the new grant request (I sent a similar message to the subscribers of User:DannyS712/Global watchlist/Updates - sorry for any duplicates).

Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 00:43, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
