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)):

Block IP and usernameEdit

Hello Rusliko I'm mostly editing the page created by me: https://uk.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Гудима_Олеся_Петрівна&stable=1 but unfortunately, I've got a LTA.

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

blocked IPEdit

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.

Request - New UserEdit

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.

yue:User:香港獨立萬歲Edit

Hello Ruslan, Deryck from Wikimania here. I noticed that you've globally blocked User:香港獨立萬歲 following their block on zh.wp and a further block request by User:WikiBayer. I have reviewed their contributions on yue.wp and found that their contributions to the article namespace are generally productive and the problem was their user page where they stated a strong political opinion which presumably angered some admins on zh.wp, leading to the block, and subsequently indef block for socking ironically because they tried to negotiate a username change and unblock by editing without logging in.

I wonder if you may be kind enough to lift the global block, or even more radically, whitelist this user for yue.wp only, so I may negotiate an unblock condition with him (which for the case of yue.wp would be as simple as not using his user page for political statements that don't relate to Wikipedia)? Deryck C. 15:09, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

@Deryck Chan: You might be interested in Steward_requests/Global/2020-04#Global_unlock_for_香港獨立萬歲. Then I am asking for an unlock as I feel the same per you. I only withdrawn the unlock request as someone told me if not of a global lock they will be locally blocked on zh-yue. If it is not true, then I think I will press for the unlock of this user. There is no way to whitelist an user from global lock, the only way is to lift it all together, this is for accounts. For IP, then sysops are able to whitelist locally. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:48, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
I had read this before I locked this account. And actually have no desire to unlock it. Ruslik (talk) 16:22, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage: As far as I'm aware, User:WikiBayer has not made any attempt to contact any yue.wp admin on the issue of blocking 香港獨立萬歲 (see yue:Special:貢獻/WikiBayer), nor is there any local discussion about blocking him (empty block log; no warning message on user talk). If you've seen anyone say this user would be blocked in yue.wp if not for the global block, I believe they had misinterpreted; what is meant was that there was nothing one could do on yue.wp locally because the account was globally locked. I also note that WikiBayer based his decision on the DeepL translator; as a native speaker of Boarisch he ought to have known that passing Cantonese text through a machine translator as if it was Standard Chinese is likely to lead to all sorts of misunderstanding, much as passing Boarisch text into ML as German. Deryck C. 16:24, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
I see Deryck Chan. Will leave it up to you. Thanks for the clarification, though zh user, I am zh-yue-0 so I had no way to verify Wikibayer claims. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:31, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
I should repeat that the yue.wp community agrees that this user's user page was overly promotional. However, WikiBayer seems to have based his decision to globally lock the user solely on an incorrect machine translation of the user page (which likely aggravated matters) and apparently with no consideration of the user's other contributions. This is why I'm suggesting lifting the global lock, and allow the user back on the condition of not using the user page for off-topic political advocacy, and a strong recommendation to change their username (though yue.wp is typically more liberal with allowing politically charged usernames than zh.wp, which is why the username itself was grounds for blocking at zh.wp but not yue.wp) Deryck C. 16:48, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
@Deryck Chan: I am amazed by your request. I am aware that machine translators are not 100% correct, but you can basically see what is being written. This user has no doubt against "Neutral Point Of View". violate. According to a sysop from the zh wiki, several socks misused. His uploaded pictures at commons only serve the purpose of spreading his political opinion. The uploaded pictures at Commons also had the goal of spreading his political opinion.--𝐖𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐁𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 👤💬 17:36, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
@WikiBayer: Thanks for your clarification; no I was unaware of his promotional uploads to Commons (because they had all been deleted), so as far as I was aware his only infractions had been politically promotional userpages, a username inappropriate for zh.wp, and technical socking (zh.wp enforces socking rules very literally). @Ruslik0: May I have clarification as to whether this is a global lock or global ban? Deryck C. 13:54, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
P.P.S. Again I should state that the yue.wp agrees that this user's (deleted) userpage was inappropriate because it was promotional, but "neutral point of view" is not supposed to apply outside the main / article namespace. The idea of a discussion page is that every editor should feel comfortable to state their point of view and then different editors can have a discussion to establish what the neutral point of view is! Deryck C. 23:42, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
This was a global lock. P.S. I am going to tolerate any calls to violence and this user seems to have been calling for violence. Ruslik (talk) 18:27, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. I'll bring these back to the yue.wp community. P.S. The "call for violence" is one of the areas where DeepML really screwed it up. The deleted user page did advocate that vandalism of symbols of an oppressive regime should be justified, though the sentence that WikiBayer quoted was a quotation from another forum, which DeepML messed up and which this user was quoting in order to express his disapproval of. Deryck C. 23:27, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
I personally see very little difference between calling or publicly endorsing violence. Both violate the basic principles of Wikimedia projects--𝐖𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐁𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 👤💬 11:51, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

German WikipediaEdit

Hi Rusliko, I hope that you will care. Article 103 of the German law prohibits a double punishment for a single offense, and the fact that the administrators refuse to accept my request for the deletion of my talk page Benutzer Diskussion:Edelseider is a case of double punishment. I am not suggesting an intent to take legal steps, I am stating, and forcefully so, that it is immoral. Thank you for your patience. --Edelseider (talk) 18:39, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

About global lock.Edit

Hello, Mr. Ruslik. I found that you suspected me as an account of my friends. I assume that you are not absolutely wrong. But please reconsider something. First, I had to guide him to create an account. Second, his VPN (he uses VPN to get connected to internet) was being blocked by wiki. So, he had to use my PC several times. And one more thing, as he doesn't get allowed to use wiki because of his network. He has to quit from wiki. I hope you are not going to let something wrong happen. Thanks. ShohagS (talk) 03:52, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

It must be a very close friend indeed - he even signs messages using your name. Ruslik (talk) 08:55, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

That's he thanked me mentioning my name. He didn't know about singing then, I believe. But I think he is not going to be in wiki for a while. Thanks. ShohagS (talk) 12:43, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
