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.

Threats via IPEdit

Same message that I send to ~riley I send to You, since You both were on the action on the same page (removing vandalism, protecting). This IP maniac [1] has a fixation on since August 2019. Early this night he was on from the other IP.[2] . He appears regularly, every day. He focuses on the users that remove his vandalisms and the users that are in the correspondence with the targeted user; e.g. I write You something here, then he makes such aggressive edits. He spreads (or at least he tries to, by random guessing) personal information in the threats. Kubura (talk) 00:54, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Again [3]. This is fresh. Kubura (talk) 22:13, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

  The Editor's Barnstar
Dear my beloved user Tegel, I would like to say a huge thanks for you and your family for your great work on anti-vandalism and LTAs. 23:57, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

Fake accountEdit

I herebye promise, I have nothing to do, what so ever, with this fake account Dan KoehI, which was setup by someone else. During 18 years on Wikipedia, I never told a lie, or tried to do something against the rules. Dan Koehl (talk) 03:58, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Nej, jag vet att det inte var du. Det är en återkommande valdal som skapar den typen av konton så du är inte den enda som blivit drabbad. Det var därför som jag märke upp den med "förvillarkonto" och inte som "marionett". -- Tegel (Talk) 06:43, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
Thank you very much, Tegel. Dan Koehl (talk) 07:03, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Professor Olavo (talk · contribs)Edit

Professor Olavo (talk · contribs) is NOT a long-term abuser in any way, shape or form. Most of this user's edits weren't vandalism at all. 23:05, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

The motivation was "Cross-wiki abuse" and not related to long-term abuse. I can change the motivation to "cross-wiki spam" if you want. -- Tegel (Talk) 11:10, 27 May 2020 (UTC)


Hi a curiosity why on es.wikiversity you didn't delete the page directly?

If I'm not mistaken, the local admin has been inactive for over a month. This is not one of the cases where you can delete as global sysop action?

I'm writing to you because the ip has continued to create other pages that need to be deleted and I reported them on GSR but I had the doubt that I wasn't considering something when I saw your edit. Thanks --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 01:43, 7 June 2020 (UTC),

Hi Tegel. Most of the IPs in and range used by MariaJaydHicky. ‎ posts User_talk:DrKay about the previous issue. Sorry for my blocked IP on English Wikipedia ( because I noticed that I cannot edit in 1 week. So I post in Meta wiki talk page. 15:33, 14 June 2020 (UTC)


this is our 1st edit in wikipedia —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Diamond Rainwear Pvt Ltd (talk)

Yes, but this is not Wikipedia. There is items that is considered spam and off-topic for this wiki and they are deleted. -- Tegel (Talk) 07:58, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Why did you delete my user pageEdit

I want people to know this is a Massapequa, NY IP. 2600:387:5:805:0:0:0:88 15:50, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Create an account if you would like to have a user page. -- Tegel (Talk) 15:51, 20 June 2020 (UTC)


Sorry for accidentally encouraging a LTA. --one + one 20:56, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Yes, don't freed the troll. You seems to be quite active for such a new account. Did you have an account before this one? -- Tegel (Talk) 21:59, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Possible impersonatingEdit

Hello, on one of the private test wikis (where I'm a bureaucrat) user has created account with nick "Tegel". He claimed, that he is a steward on Wikimedia. If that were really You, just confirm it, please. If not, I have to block that account for impersonating. Thank You in advance, Neonek12 (talk) 09:09, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

That is not me, so feel free to block it. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:11, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

User talk:SiphonariusEdit

Hi Tegel, could you please hide this version? It is an insult and means a word that I do not want to quote here. Thank you. Siphonarius (talk) 16:20, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

  Done. -- Tegel (Talk) 18:12, 26 June 2020 (UTC)


Hi, I edited the page by mistake, just to let you know. thanks.--Faisal talk 21:56, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

No problem. It just looked like you added a two year old copy of the page. -- Tegel (Talk) 21:57, 7 July 2020 (UTC)


You can delete es:Henry Wolf Gummer??? -- 15:19, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

No, it's a case for the local admins. -- Tegel (Talk) 15:20, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi - deleting my entryEdit

Hello, why did you delete my entry ?

Because it was promotional material. That is not the purpose of this wiki or any other wiki run by the Wikimedia Foundation. -- Tegel (Talk) 21:05, 22 July 2020 (UTC)


Hello, i have simple question. You're user Tegel on Miraheze? Thank you! --MrJaroslavik (talk) 08:39, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi. No, that is not me. -- Tegel (Talk) 10:46, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

ciao Sono Gaetano Minale il giorno 16 Luglio 2020 mi hai eliminato la pagina che avevo con notizie di Wikimedia Meta-Wiki , posso sapere i motivo . Grazie


Hi! Why did you revert that edit on SRM? Vermont (talk) 13:36, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

The comment was signed with a different account name that doesn't exist any more. The user should sign with the current user name. -- Tegel (Talk) 13:38, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
Ah, makes sense. Best, Vermont (talk) 13:46, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Deleted questionEdit

Thanks, Tegel, maybe you can be kind and move the deleted question to the users discussion page, I guess you realized it was a question to the user? Dan Koehl (talk) 13:26, 17 August 2020 (UTC)


Hi Tegel. Would you mind to protect my user talk due to persistent vandalism, for about a month? I don't have many activities here in Meta, so probably no one need to contact me here. Probably, you would be able also to block the vandal account. Regards. Medelam (talk) 09:23, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

Can you please protect my talk page?Edit

I see you've recently deleted my talk page for vandalism, but you might have noticed that this wasn't the first time it was vandalized by an IP attacker. If memory serves me right, this was the fifth time someone had to delete my talk page. Can you please protect it so that IP addresses can't edit it? User:Imjustthere 19:22, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

From what I can see it has only been deleted once and that was today. If it has been deleted in the past it must have been on a different wiki. -- Tegel (Talk) 19:27, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
It was actually deleted in the past while I was using my old username, Imjusttherediting. Plus, it was recently deleted again. User:Imjustthere 10:33, 12 September 2020 (UTC)


Hi! Thank you! But me intresting, this comment in edit... diff - need hide? It's crosswiki harassment... :c --くろねこ Обг. 12:42, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Please blockEdit

Hi. Will you please block (talk · contribs), (talk · contribs), and (talk · contribs) since IPs on those ranges have been persistently harassing and vandalizing pages I edited and my talk pages for months. Not only in enwiki but also across several wikis like idwiki and commonswiki. the first ( (talk · contribs)) and the 2nd are now blocked on enwiki only for some time so he moved to commons. Thanks. Flix11 (talk) 07:12, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Long term abuseEdit

Special:Contributions/ --MRZQ (talk) 09:15, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi. I noticed that it's already handled. -- Tegel (Talk) 11:01, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

Copyright Austergrund2020.jpgEdit

Hello I got a message that the picture austergrund2020.jpg will be deleted for copyright reason. The picture is taken by myself so I own all copyright of it. I also use the picture at and facebook. Therefor I whant you to remove the deletion order. Regards Allan Pettersson —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 12:24, 22 November 2020

The picture was available on a page that claims Copyright on it's content, so it's up to the Commons Admins to decide what to do. -- Tegel (Talk) 13:36, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Unnecessary global lock on my accountEdit

Hello, can you help unlock my account, please? The account's name is Albertpda. This account is only blocked in the English Wikipedia, not in any other wiki platform. I'm using this account to edit regularly in another language wiki site and I'm allowed to do so! Suddenly someone set a global lock against my account and now I can't even log in into it! I don't cross-wiki vandalize anything, I was blocked in the English Wikipedia only. I mean they can set global lock on my sock/other accounts but not my main account! It's unnecessary. I'm using the account to legally edit in another language-wiki, now it is locked up. 05:57, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Check out Steward requests/Global where you can find the email-address to the Stewards if you want to appeal your global lock. -- Tegel (Talk) 13:51, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
I have sent an email for 4 days and no one replied!! This is urgent! My account is still locked up. 03:25, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

My user talk pageEdit

Thank you for deleting my user talk page! However, a request: what was on my user talk page in the first place. I assume it was vandalism, but I want to know as you deleted it before I was avaliable to see it. Thanks! HurricaneTracker495 (talk) 15:53, 29 November 2020 (UTC)


Thank you for the feedback. Yes I realised it after trying to make it. My understanding was that I had deleted it. Will look into it for better learning. Thanks again. SusRep (talk) 19:03, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
