Welcome to my talk page!

Read through the following text BEFORE you write your comments:

  • Have I commented on your talk page, I will monitor it for your reply. This so we keep the discussion together in one place. Don't reply here. If I have commented on your talk page and you reply here, I will in most cases move your reply to your talk page anyway.
  • Always sign your comments with four tilde (~~~~).
  • Put new comments under a ==Describing headline== at the bottom of the page.
  • If I have deleted a page that you have written, I'm sure there is more information on your talk page about the reason. Read it through before asking for the reason here.
  • If you would like to complain about a block that affect your account or want to ask for a block, use Steward requests/Global instead of my talk page. It's often quicker and it can be handled by all Stewards.
  • If you would like to request a global block, place the request at Steward requests/Global.
  • If you leave a message here, I will reply here. In normal case I will not reply by e-mail.
  • Vandalism and nonsense will be deleted.

Have you read all the text above?? OK, then you can continue.

How we will see unregistered usersEdit


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Hi Tegel, I was wondering how these IPs [1][2] could still edit even though the IP-Range was already globally blocked? -- Johannnes89 (talk) 16:53, 10 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Meta is not covered by the global block. This is so users can come to Meta and ask to be unblocked. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:56, 10 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ahh ok that makes sense, thanks for explaining! Johannnes89 (talk) 17:04, 10 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I’ve been blocked for long term abuse but I’m honestly confused for what said abuse is? I swear I didn’t do anything to harm Wikipedia I would like to know why I’m blocked in Wikipedia and if it was a mistake or not. I Am Hunted (talk) 22:08, 15 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Okay so I didn’t do anything wrong per day but the ip I use is the one blocked. Is there anyway for regular users to bypass it or do I have to wait? I Am Hunted (talk) 22:44, 15 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Greetings.. I have a complaint Nominate me a Wikipedia administrator who can help me take legal action To preserve page from vandalism and remove the quick scan templateEditعلاءمستخدم:HitomiAkaneعلاء&action=viewعلاء&action=view

Greetings.. I have a complaint against an Egyptian administrator. Please look into it in all honesty.. the administrator Name is “HitomiAkane” he send false information about Mirette El Hariri And he agreed with an administrator Alaa from the Arabic Wikipedia to support him and help him sabotage Mirette El Hariri's page and delete her information from Wikidata. .. Someone is stubborn about downloading the creation of the Egyptian Wikipedia page and He has an irrational stubbornness ،And he has friends who support him Kiro Bassem and Alaa . Mirette El Hariri She won the Best Actress award in the movie Hawi, directed by Ibrahim Al-Batout, and there is evidence!! And She is also a beautician and ran two branches of beauty center in the highest quality, and she studied in the largest cosmetic schools in Europe, and she is a very important person. Either the page will remain or will be deleted Mirette El Hariri From a well-known political family It is not desirable that a person has stubbornness to make it a war and send false information just because he does not want to create a page even though all the criteria are available!!

I know that Wikipedia is a respectable and large encyclopedia, and all the two administrators in it are moral and fair. I hope for your help and take a decision to stop HitomiAkane and his friend who supports him in sabotaging Alaa nd Kiro Bassem .. ( please help me to action thank u )

Info om Elli AvrRamEdit

Hej Tegel (skriver på svenska eftersom det står att du förstår svenska). Jag har försökt att ta bort födelsedata/info om Elli AvrRam, men du har lagt tillbaks det och blocket mig om jag förstått det rätt. Jag som skriver detta är Ellis far och bor i Stockholm, försöker hjälpa min dotter med detta. Är det ok att låta mig ändra på det eller är det nått annat som gäller? 16:30, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Du vill alltså ta bort grundläggande information om en offentlig person? Information som är källbelagd? Det måste då föregå en diskussion på den aktuella artikelns diskussionssida. Det går alltså inte att bara ta bort informationen. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:34, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hej Tegel, Tack för ditt svar. Hur kommer jag till "artikelns diskussionssida"? 16:57, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I överkant på varje artikel finns det en flik som heter "diskussion" eller motsvarande på det aktuella språket. Där diskuteras artikelns innehåll och utformning. Sen när konsensus är uppnått så kan ändringen föras in i artikeln. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:00, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hej Tegel, ok, jag såg det, men jag kan inte skriva nått för min IP adress är blockerad (får jag som svar. Antar att du har blockerat mig. Kan du släppa det jag jag kan skriva ett inlägg där? 17:10, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Blockeringen har nu gått ut. Jag skulle rekommendera dig att skriva på diskussionssidan oavsett vad det gäller då det föreligger en intressekonflikt. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:09, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Too curious from (User talk:Xaosflux)Edit

I am often curious about why an edit/article got deleted/suppressed, but I usually don’t ask as I see as just a waste of time. But, recently an edit appeared on my talk page on en.wq that the username oversighted. Since I assume it was probably a TOS violation (i.e. personal attack) and not sensitive information, I was wondering if I could possibly know what the username was (assuming non-sensitive). Thanks. (sorry for the unusual question) {link to edit} – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 09:20, 20 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. No, you may not know the username. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:26, 20 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oversight requestEdit

Можете помочь?Edit

Меня заблокировали в русском викисловаре за злоупотребление несколькими учетными записями. Но злоупотребления не было. Когда я создал новую учетку, я указал в ней свои старые и перестал ими пользоваться. Других нарушений у меня нет. Я обращался к заблокировавшему меня администратору здесь User talk:Bookvaedina#Making signs, здесь User talk:Bookvaedina#Я в ужасе и здесь User talk:Bookvaedina#Консенсус, так как не могу писать в русском викисловаре. Результата нет. Он создал консенсус но в нем создается впечатление, что я другой участник. В консенсусе никто не реагирует. Помогите пожалуйста.

Local issues need to be addressed locally. There is nothing I can do about this. You can still edit your local talk page to request to be unblocked. -- Tegel (Talk) 10:56, 11 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You can still edit your talk page, and if an abuse filter prevents you from edit the page it's because you wrote something that is considered abusive. Write someting else.

Hi. In the glossary (Wikiversità), in the "c", it says "po." It is correct with the apostrophe, not without. I tried to fix it, but the filter is blocking the change. GrammarCorrectorWiki (talk) 21:53, 18 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Open meeting for patrollersEdit

Hello, Tegel and anyone else who is watching this page:

The mw:Editing team is starting a new project, mw:Edit check. They are particularly seeking the views of RecentChanges patrollers and other reviewers. One of the open questions is: When should the visual editor encourage people to add a citation?

The meeting will be this Friday, 3 March 2023. More information is available at mw:Editing team/Community Conversations#3 March 2023. I hope that you will be able to attend, but if you aren't, please consider leaving your advice to the team on the talk page. They would particularly value hearing about the citation standards at different Wikipedias, and also what you think the biggest problem is with the first edits made by new editors.
