Enquiries regarding my adminshipEdit

I do apologise for writing this after (almost) a whole week since you granted me a temporary 3-month admin status on yuewiktionary. I would like to note that I have stated on the page that it "would not be a temporary one". Please let me know if there's anything I should do (e.g. holding a local vote anew) to prolong the adminship. Thank you.--Hello903hello (talk) 10:55, 1 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Thank you for your reply. I do understand that we are still a small community. And just one more question: so the rights would not be renewed automatically and I shall hold a vote every 3 months?--Hello903hello (talk) 07:33, 9 January 2019 (UTC)[]
(tps).Yes you have to and go through the process again. However, depending on circumstances, the 2nd time may be 6 months, longer, or permanent, focus on building a community now. Best,--Cohaf (talk) 07:42, 9 January 2019 (UTC)[]

User:Panara_hin_abusado admin status@warwikiEdit

I'm currently one of those who have an admin access at

I've just noticed and was surprised to know that we suddenly have a new admin with the username Panara_hin_abusado at Waray Wikipedia .

I'm at a lost why and how this user was able to gain sysop access at warwiki when he or she did not even edit once across wikimedia projects as of this moment. There was also no request for adminship at Waray Wikipedia for this user. We do not have any steward or bureaucrat at warwiki by the way.

Can you help me understand how did this happen? Thank you JinJian (talk) 11:28, 3 January 2019 (UTC)[]

Hi! First, thanks for acting so fast on my global block request. I have a question: Can you (a Steward) suppress a username? I ask, because I just blocked MÁY IN FAMI-PRINTER 0388817887(zalo-facebook) on Commons for spamming. It seems that the username contains a phone number. Do we have a policy for that?

Harassment regarding userrights you have modifiedEdit

Dear steward,

You and steward @علاء: have changed my userrights on Marathi wikisource and allowed me for continuing my temporary administrator privilages as per steward policies on that wiki. Since past few months I have been harassed on that wiki by a user QueerEcofeminist who has been blatantly insulting me and has pure intensions to defame me. This user is just copying all my edits patterns on meta Commons and enwp. Copying all the gadgets tools and trying all ways to harass me. It is true that on Marathi Wikipedia this user and his fellow team disruped the whole voting process because of which the local admin had to forcefully delete their votes and protect that page. The same technique is used on wikisource now where there is a limited community. This user on this page has not only accused me for misbehaving/vandalising/supporting vandals and sockpuppets but also making personal remarks and all negative stuffs on me. This comes into light when steward @Ajraddatz: rejected his account Creator request on SRP. He went on local wiki to ask where I questioned him about whether he has followed procedure regarding this userright where in reply he in a rage tone replied on my mrwp talkpage stating that I want a reply from you on wikisource.

I request you to please look into this asap and find a concrete solution to this massive abuses and defaming that this user is doing about me. Thanking you. --Tiven2240 (talk) 16:46, 22 January 2019 (UTC)[]

You missed some ROXELANA22 socksEdit

Lock all:

@Ruslik0: Hello. Remember this report you took care of yesterday? I just wanted to let you know that you missed some of this LTA's socks (they are cross-wiki, as usual). Can you please Lock the accounts, and also run a sleeper check on the accounts and his listed IP range? Can you please also apply a 6-12 month "anon-only" Global + Local Rangeblock on his IP range? His IPs are semi-dynamic, but in the last 3 years, his IPs have generally been limited to the /21 range I listed above (with the exception of another /22 range that has since gone inactive). The range also needs to be rangeblocked locally, because he also has a history of socking on Meta. You can see this discussion from last year for more info on this LTA's behavior. (By now, this LTA is pretty much mainly a cross-wiki vandalizer, and has been logging back in to any old accounts he can find.) If you don't block the /21 range (which I strongly recommend), you should at least block this IP locally: xwiki-contribsSTIP infoWHOISrobtexgblockglistabuselogipchecker. In case you're wondering, the last 6-month Global/Local Rangeblock on the /21 range was 100% effective (it expired last December). At this point, it is my opinion that anon editors on that range need to see a Steward for creating an account to use, due to the severity of abuse from this LTA. The "anon-only" setting should allow uninvolved users with their own accounts to continue editing. Thank you. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 20:42, 29 January 2019 (UTC)[]

OK - thanks, Ruslik0, for explaining this but what is the solution?

ROXELANA22 sleepersEdit

Lock all:

@Ruslik0 and RadiX: Hello. Can you please Globally Lock all of these accounts? They are probably sleeper accounts of ROXELANA22 (it seems that this LTA's original username was "AUC COLOMBIA"). Each account is behaviorally identical to his first account (AUC COLOMBIA), and each account was created within rapid succession on es.wikipedia, this LTA's home wiki. Almost all of these sleepers are already locally indeffed. (This page demonstrates that the only unblocked sock, AUC COLOMBIA 2009, is still a part of this sockfarm.) Every single one of his socks/sleepers needs to be Globally Locked, because as demonstrated numerous times in the past (e.g. ZiguratEnki, AUC COLOMBIA), this nut still remembers his password(s) for all of his accounts, no matter how old they are, and also because sock accounts that are locally blocked but not Globally Locked can be "regenerated" on another Wikipedia Project (this LTA has been doing this with each of his socks since 2017). This basically means that all of his socks need to be Globally Locked in order to effectively curb his abuse. Thank you. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 03:59, 9 February 2019 (UTC)[]

LTA IPH95 imitatorEdit

Hello. Can you please consider an "anon-only" Global/Local Rangeblock of the range listed above? The person responsible is a cross-wiki vandal who appears to be imitating the vandalism of IPhonehurricane95, and possibly also Lighting Sabre (also known as the "UAK vandal"), given the persistent use of 9/11 imagery vandalism and references to "UnderArmourKid" in his edit summaries. This person has been vandalizing via multiple IPs in the range since December 2018, and so far, he has vandalized on,, Commons, and Meta wiki (other sites may be affected as well). At least 3 of his IPs have already been subjected to Global Blocks, but they seem to be doing nothing to curb his abuse. Can you please implement a 3-6 month Global and Local rangeblock? The vandalism and personal attacks from this vandal are quite severe and involve graphic (and even indecent) images. Thank you. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 01:40, 17 February 2019 (UTC)[]

Cross-wiki LTAEdit

@Ruslik0: I found one more sleeper (the contributions obviously indicate that it's him). Can you please lock the account and also Globally / Locally Rangeblock the IPs for at least 6-12 months (specifically, an "anon-only" block to prevent collateral)? This LTA immediately resumed cross-wiki abuse 2 days after the last 6-month Global/Local Rangeblock expired (on the larger /21 range). This LTA's IPs are semi-dynamic, so they change every 2-4 weeks, but are usually restricted to 1 or 2 ranges at a time. At least 90% to 95% of all of his IPs within the last 3 years can be traced back to this range (with the exception of another inactive range), so a rangeblock on this range should effectively keep him from being about to sock until its expiration. Incidentally, this range is currently being abused by at least 1 or 2 other cross-wiki LTAs (active on,, and possibly others), which have resulted in a smaller, separate rangeblock on (, so a Global Block would be able to prevent cross-wiki abuse from ROXELANA22 and the other LTAs on this range. This page on Commons indicates that he has been abusing this range for almost 3 years now, and given the severity of the cross-wiki abuse, I personally believe that account creation and IP editing from anons should be restricted until the abuse winds down. (An "anon-only" block should allow unrelated users on that range to continue editing, and unregistered users should still be able to contact the Stewards for account creation.) Thank you. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 22:11, 5 March 2019 (UTC)[]

In terms of possible collateral, the /22 subnet has a significantly smaller potential collateral than the larger /21 range, and recently, there have been several Rangeblocks enacted that have a significantly larger collateral damage than the range listed above, including 2607:fb90::/32. That range has enormous collateral, and yet, it has been locally rangeblocked up to 3 years, and Globally Rangeblocked multiple times due to the recent abuse. At the same time, the vandalism from the "Dog and rapper vandal" (the main LTA on that range) has never actually reached the severity of ROXELANA22. I can guarantee that within 1 month, if this LTA hasn't been rangeblocked, he will generate another string of cross-wiki socks, as seen last year. Given the abuse from this LTA and other cross-wiki vandals, I believe that it's in the best interest of the Projects for the IPs to be blocked. The IPs also need to be blocked on Meta, because he also socks on this site, as observed in some of the socks from this month. (He has also issued death threats to me and other users, so I'm considered whether or not to notify WMF of the abuse.) LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 22:11, 5 March 2019 (UTC)[]

Dear Ruslik0,

Ruslik (and anyone else reading this), I'm sure you're well aware that the comments from the IP above are basically trolling, specifically by the LTA Arturo Gustavo. As I've already told him, he is still quite clueless about how I run my anti-vandal operations (or even my extensive vandal/LTA research), and obviously, none of what he said above accurately describes what I was trying to accomplish. I could go into more detail explaining why I do stuff the way that I do (and also how I know how to hunt down LTAs and find their recent ranges), but I'd rather not go into more detail on this at the moment. I actually think that Arturo's a bit paranoid (especially towards CUs), though I can't really blame him there, given his socking as an LTA. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 06:59, 8 March 2019 (UTC)[]
Some explanations sounds like partially legitimate, however some explanations looks like grasping the straws. Arturo has some good working relationships with 2 or 3 en~CheckUsers. The CIDR /24, /23, /22 blocks should dish out conservatively because avoid collateral is best. Only reason to do CIDR blocks is avoid to revealing the Lima Tango Alpha's underlying IP.
Also, L&D2k behavior need to closely monitor because more and more Stewards and now Global Sysops (example: Billinghurst) are impacted negatively due to him. How to regulate his petulances and anti-community behaviors? -- 23:28, 10 March 2019 (UTC)[]

IP blockedEdit

I got blocked on the English Wikipedia under the 2600:387:a:19:0:0:0:0/64 IP range. I am a well-established user there. LaundryPizza03 (talk) 04:20, 2 June 2019 (UTC)[]

Steward requestEdit

Hello RUslik, My IP was blocked this last 25th of April and I would like to know why. Thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

There has been long term abuse on the range, so it has been blocked. If you need to edit at a wiki, then it is advised to create an account, and edit through that at the wiki in question.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:06, 6 June 2019 (UTC)[]

Undblock AccountEdit

hi Mr. Ruslik0, I ask you to please unblock the following account globally,, Recently an LTA had been blocked, where he loaded landscape and village paintings, if he noticed the two blocked users, he noticed that both of them did not match the loaded arguments, the user that must remain blocked globally is only this. because mawlew uploads respect the licenses entered with the arguments entered correctly, check the uploads-- 14:55, 11 June 2019 (UTC)[]

Why was I blocked?Edit

I got a message saying "Editing from your IP address range (2600:1017:B400:0:0:0:0:0/40) has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 16:44, 5 June 2020 by Ruslik0 ( for the following reason: Long-term abuse."

Здраствуйте! Есть такой участник Rausch (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser) (в русской вики известен как Gvozdet), который имеет, как говорят, ~100 виртуалов, большая часть которых занимается вандализмом. Его уже заблокировали в рувики и в англвики. В укрвики его неоднократно предупреждали и блокировали за это. Потому прошу вас глобально заблокировать его IP.

простите за задержку. Выше он обещал не создавать новых виртуалов. Как показала проверка в укрвики[4], он его нарушил. Его виртуалы Raush и Milenc уже и так глобально заблокированы. Соответствено, это обход глобальной блокировки и двух безстрочок в рувики и анвики. Поскольку это происходит систематично и ничего его не останавливает, прошу глобально заблокировать его айпи (или диапазон) нп долгий термин и переблокировать всех виртуалов за обход глобального лока.

I was blocked for a long term abuse? What is the reason behind this? I haven’t made edits in months. Texan45667 (talk) 11:41, 1 July 2019 (UTC)[]

You are not blocked anywhere. Ruslik (talk) 20:50, 1 July 2019 (UTC)[]


When running a CU on an enwiki sock puppet, I saw you globally blocked Special:Contributions/2600:1017:B400::/40. You might want to range block that here, locally on Meta, too. My understanding is that global blocks don't prevent account creation unless there's a matching block on Meta. If your intention was just to stop anon editing (and you don't care about account creation), I guess you can ignore this. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 20:32, 9 July 2019 (UTC)[]

Why did you come to such a conclusion? Ruslik (talk) 20:49, 9 July 2019 (UTC)[]
Someone on the /40 created an account on Meta today despite the global block. Using SUL, his account was automatically created on English Wikipedia, and he vandalized a bunch of pages. This issue came up before on the checkuser mailing list. A steward (I think maybe it was Ajraddatz?) explained that global blocks by themselves do not prevent account creation. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 23:42, 9 July 2019 (UTC)[]
They do not prevent automatic account creation but prevent ordinary account creation. On the other hand extending the block to meta would deprive IP editors of any means of appeal. This particular block was in fact very effective in reducing the number of accounts created. There have been no new accounts created for almost a month. Ruslik (talk) 18:36, 10 July 2019 (UTC)[]

History mergeEdit

Thanks for doing the merge I requested. One thing though: I see that revision 2199 by Yann (at 13:20 UTC on 10 January 2005) — which was the original creation of the page before the merge happened — is still listed in the page history as a 19,555-character increase in the size of the page (which it was only when there was no previous version), even though that revision is identical to the now-previous revision 5529 by (at 02:06 UTC on 28 December 2004). Is this behavior normal after a history merge? Is there a maintenance script that could easily fix this problem (and show Yann's edit as a 0-character difference from the version by the IP editor)? Or is this just not worth pursuing? - dcljr (talk) 03:50, 11 July 2019 (UTC)[]

I can remember if this behavior is normal or not. You should ask developers. Ruslik (talk) 20:49, 11 July 2019 (UTC)[]

Hello Ruslik0, thank you for your efforts for checking users, but among some of the users you recently banned from zhwiki, we think that from their editorial habits, they may not be LTAs. These users include 雪兒許, Ascaris equi, and 药科大负责人. Here are our discussion on VP. I suggest that you revoke the ban on them and, at the next ban, be cautious about certain users who may be in normal editing (such as users who have edited more than 50 times), and if necessary, tell me or other active users on zhwiki, like Techyan or MCC214. You can also go to our Village Pump or Guestbook to ask questions. Thank you. --Rowingbohe♬(Talk/zhwiki) 14:04, 4 September 2019 (UTC)[]

First, they have not done any vandalism in Chinese Wikipedia. Second, they are Mainland China user that they have used Simplified Chinese when they are editing, and they need to use the proxy to edit Wikipedia. So their IP address may same as some LTA.

Request for UnblockingEdit

Good morning, I've been banned for my editing a single page, which I did several times over the course of a few days in order to remove vandalistic nonsense written by a logged in user. The page about Youtube content creator "Harry Metcalfe' contained information about a helicopter festival that does not exist and fake quotes from a local aristocrat about building a helicopter - I removed this in good faith as I am committed to accurate information. I feel that I do not meet the criteria for 'Long-term abuse' and have been banned for not using an account which is contrary to that which Wikipedia states 'editing already existing pages without [an account] is perfectly acceptable, and in fact, is very much welcomed to the Wikipedia community.' I do not feel welcomed in this way.

I would be disappointed not to be able to edit wikipedia further as an unregistered user, considering that wikipedia encourages and welcomes this.

Hello. I've left another report at SRG because this LTA is back. I will also be contacting the WMF's Trust & Safety after his latest bout of harassment. Can you please run a sleeper check on his newest accounts and the IP range listed above? It seems to be his newest range, given the overlapping edits on Wikidata (and likely other sites as well). Can you please Globally and Locally Block this IP range for 6-12 months if this is actually his range? His ranges are relatively stable, as they normally don't change more than once a year.

Please unblock. I became aware of this when I tried to sign up for BLT, a group I have attended before. I am very active on Wikipedia and not blocked anywhere else.

Hi Ruslik0

I have a question about a recent block you have done because you might have made a mistake

When you have blocked the accounts shown in the request 'Global lock for xwiki harassment' have you checked all of them before blocking ?

I ask you because the account i created in 'LuluGigi' and the one i created in 'Semplicemente Agghiacciante' have absolutely nothing to do with the others

Have you found any kind of relation between them and any of the other accounts listed ?

If you have not find anything please unblock them again because the user who requested the block told me that a checkuser would check them before blocking so if they were unrelated they should not have been blocked

I am sure there can not be any relation because i have not created the others but maybe you have found something which made you think they are related and in that case you may keep them blocked and i will not ask you to unblock them again

Perhaps you have not checked them because you just blocked them together with the others which were actually accounts to block created by an abuser and you did not think that further checks were necessary

Just tell me if you have found or will find a relation which justifies a global block for my two accounts between the other accounts and them which were never ever used to do anything against rules

Let me know please !

IP blockEdit

Hi, after some time trying to figure out what happened I saw that you denied a request because I did not reply, which can be seen here:

You asked what I meant when I said "The IP I am editing from", given that I only have one edit - on the steward requests page. What I meant was during the edit on that page, English is not my first language, that is why I wish to edit the Portuguese Wikipedia, but when I try to do so I get a message saying to ask for an IP exemption from the Stewards.

I did not reply you because after over a week without replies to my request I eventually gave up. Recently I tried editing again and was still blocked so I checked up on the request and saw that you denied it for lack of reply.

How should I proceed?

However, I cannot contact ‪Tks4Fish‬ because I am blocked! I also cannot send an email to him as explained by the message above. Since you're an administrator could you do it, or is there no way to edit Wikipedia with a VPN? If that is the case I guess I give up, not so free encyclopedia.

Hi please unblock: 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. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:04, 19 December 2019 (UTC)[]

Hello Rusliko I'm mostly editing the page created by me:Гудима_Олеся_Петрівна&stable=1 but unfortunately, I've got a LTA. Is there something wrong with my IP? If so, why am I blocked as a user? I do believe I've been blocked by mistake. Please help. Thank you, Lyubomyr76

Hi, sorry, not sure where to post this. My "IP range" ( 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. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:29, 9 July 2019 (UTC)[]

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. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MartinLowack (talk) 13:24, 20 October 2019 (UTC)[]
