Fantoches de Guilherme151097Edit

Olá Tks, andei verificando algumas edições dos fantoches deste usuário e percebi abuso na wiki anglófona, wikidata e commons (menos frequente), o comportamento é idêntico: artigos de músicas, alterando tabelas para o gosto pessoal ou mudando predefinições para predefinições de testes (quando revertido, ips de faixas semelhantes ou proxies abertos refazem todos o trabalho do fantoche). Caso seja possível, recomendaria um block global juntamente com um banimento, já é caso de sockmaster. Edmond Dantès d'un message? 04:53, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

@Conde Edmond Dantès: realmente estava pensando nisso esses tempos, mas acabei não agindo para um travamento global. Acredito que seja sim o caso, pois é patente o abuso crosswiki.

User script to access other watchlistsEdit

Hi Tks4Fish,

If you remember, you participated in the 2019 Community Wishlist Survey, including the discussion for reviving "Crosswatch" to allow for cross-wiki watchlists (Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Watchlists/Revive Crosswatch tool).

I sent you this MassMessage because I wanted to let you know that I have made a user script to make accessing your watchlists on different wikis easier, since for now that wishlist item has not been actioned.

The way it works is that, on any wiki, when you look at your watchlist, there is a button labeled "CA" that takes you to the CentralAuth page for you. There, when looking at your own information, each link to a wiki ("", "", "", etc.) is changed so that it links to your watchlist on that wiki.

If you are interested in using it, just add mw.loader.load('//'); to your global javascript page. This imports the code at m:User:DannyS712/Watchlist.js.

If you want to learn more, there is documentation for the script available at w:en:User:DannyS712/Watchlist. If you would like to discuss the script, talk to me at m:User talk:DannyS712.

Thanks, --05:50, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Lifetime open proxies

Hey Tks4Fish, thanks for blocking! I would suggest reducing the block to a 3-month block. Most open proxies die quite early (see the graph on the left, for example) and don't survive the 3 month mark anyway. On the other hand, if the IP stops being an open proxy and switches owner, we would have blocked a legitimate user's IP. --MrClog (talk) 08:23, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I'm handling an SPI case on enwiki, en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Hjh874. It would help to have some understanding of the lock on Hjh874. It appears to have sprung from "impersonation" of Hjh474. Is this the equivalent of a soft block on enwiki (change your name and we'll let you edit again) or a hard block (for malicious impersonation)? Your advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Cabayi (talk) 20:29, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

Hey @Cabayi:! This was a hardblock, as a malicious impersonation. This user was a vandalism-only account who was also abusing xwiki. See also Steward_requests/Global/2020-06#Global_lock_for_Hjh874_and_Ng874. Best regards, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 18:08, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Question on User:2600:1009:B000:0:0:0:0:0/40Edit

Dear user Tks4Fish,

What long-term abuse cause this range to be blocked for a month?

And what did the range even do the cause it to be blocked?

Help needed – Block ID #206397Edit

Dear Tks4Fish, I need your help. I am trapped by a block that you started at 20. Jun. 2020. Every time I log into the internet my provider assigned to me an IP-address in the range of or With that I am totally blocked and have no chance to edit anything including my own disk-pages. I have tried several times to send a request via the „Contact Stewards“ form but there was no reaction. Today I am using the internet connection at a friend of mine to write to you directly.

The blocked range is and the block ID is #206397. I have done nothing wrong, can you please unblock my account? Maybe it is possible to create an individual exemption for me. Thank you very much and best regards --Sonnesatt (talk) 15:13, 7 July 2020 (UTC) (Pls keep in mind that with even blocked disk-pages I will not be able to answer in any way.)

@Sonnesatt: I've added Global IP Block Exemption to your user, so you should be able to edit other wikis normally. As for Meta, I'll ping @Vermont:, who's a local admin and may add a local exemption for you. Sorry for the problems caused by the block. Best regards, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 16:37, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Sonnesatt, I have granted local IPBE to your account on Meta-Wiki. Apologies for the problems relating to the (g)blocks, and happy editing! Best, Vermont (talk) 16:54, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

IP Block 206397Edit

Dear user Tks4Fish,

Sadly I am unable to edit any pages in the wikipedia or at any wikimedia pages whatsoever, even when I log in with my username, because my IP got blocked. Could you be so nice and unblock it for registered users again? You can look at my contributions to see that I don't contribute to by long-term abuse how the block reason tells, but make useful edits.

I understand that IP-blocks have to be in cases of abuse, but how can you block the registered users with these IP's, too? You as a person with the right to make IP-blocks, I suppose you heard of dynamic IPs. If an IP is trolling, block the IP, if a registered user is trolling, block the user, but don't block registered users just because they had bad luck to get a "bad" IP!

Another problem is that in order to be able to complain about such a block you have to use VPN which is very discouraged by wikimedia and to circumvent the blocks which protect wikimedia of VPN. I had to try different servers to be able to write this message to you. Other users don't have the knowledge or patience and just give up - "if they don't want me here, then I'll better go."

I hope that you can unblock me soon. And I hope you didn't take my message as an insult. I admit I got a bit angry, but hey, errare humanum est, and I am glad that there are people like you outside fighting with vandalism.

--Lesendes Okapi (talk) 14:56, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

@Lesendes Okapi: I'm really sorry for that. Per your message and the one above yours, I've changed the block to affect only anonymous users. The block was made for all users because the check I made didn't indicate that the range was busy, which meant a hardblock was possible. I now see that is not the case. I didn't take this as an insult at all, you can rest assured. If you need anything else, please let me know. Again, I'm really sorry for the inconvenience caused. Best, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 15:04, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

@Tks4Fish: thank you very much! This was very fast, I didn't expect an answer at all before monday :D No inconvenience was caused, and how could I be mad at a Douglas-Adams-Fan? --Lesendes Okapi (talk) 15:36, 12 July 2020 (UTC) (Lutz Fehling)Edit

Unfortunately, Lutz Fehling (the LTA that is the target of this rangeblock) wasted little time after his block expired, posting a small bit of nonsense here, but lots of it at enwiki. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 08:11, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

@AlanM1: I'll suggest you to report it here. Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker (talk) 08:19, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

The problem here is that guys like Tks4fish are trying to gain points by locking profiles and deleting pages. I'm quite positive that this policy of rewarding for number of blocked users or number of deleted profiles is absolutely wrong. Oh you blocked 1000 profiles here it is a medal from Wikipedia. Justify why did you delete my profile?

Leonardo José RaimundoEdit

Olá Tks, como está? Procuro você por ser um editor lusófono e colega CheckUser. Em setembro, abri uma discussão de bloqueio na Wikipédia Lusófona para discutir o comportamento do usuário em pauta e, na ocasião, elenquei duas ofensas com motivação religiosa e antissemita efetuadas pelo mesmo: esta e esta. A conta foi bloqueada por tempo indeterminado com alguns administradores ressaltando o proselitismo religioso.

Acontece que a conta continua ativa no WikiNews e voltou a se comunicar com a mesma pessoa que ofendeu. Fiz uma rápida pesquisa e a editora aparenta ser judia e vem recebendo mensagens como esta (veja o histórico). Eu procurei o histórico e não encontrei uma "origem" que resultou naquelas mensagens do Leonardo, tampouco considero útil o envio de tais com teor religioso sem nenhum escopo relacionado ao projeto. Alguns editores já vieram me procurar alegando perseguição religiosa por parte do Leonardo e, analisando a troca de mensagens, tendo a concordar.

Como a usuária deve proceder? E também questiono se não é um caso de bloqueio global pois o comportamento [que resultou no bloqueio] vem se repetindo em outro projeto. Saudações. Edmond Dantès d'un message? 05:37, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Olá, @Conde Edmond Dantès:! Ainda não é caso de travamento global (bloqueios globais existem apenas para IPs), pois por enquanto o abuso foi "comprovado" só na ptwiki (stewards não podem tomar uma ação unilateral, então necessitamos de bloqueios em mais de um projeto), e ele é até mesmo sysop na ptwikinews. Não há muito o que se possa fazer de imediato, mas uma alternativa seria a editora entrar em contato com a equipe de T&S no ca wikimedia org, pois perseguição religiosa não é algo tolerado. Se outros editores que também passaram por isso também o fizerem, a possibilidade de uma sanção de algum tipo aumenta. Caso tenha alguma outra dúvida, só perguntar. Abraços! —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 02:28, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

Unnecessary global lock on my accountEdit

Hey, why do you set a global lock on my account? Can you unlock it, 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 you 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. You 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. 09:41, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

Additional socks of Vilho-VeliEdit

I see you recently globally locked Vilho-Veli.[1] Here are some additional related accounts:

  • Editor Interaction Timeline makes it clear that დამოკიდებულება and Vilho-Veli are the same individual,[2] with massive overlap and coordinated back-and-forth edits within minutes. For example დამოკიდებულება creates this page and edits it for 15 minutes, then 6 minutes later Vilho-Veli manages to find it and add the the appropriate image and categories to complete the work.
  • დამოკიდებუილება2 identifies as a "legitimate" secondary account of დამოკიდებულება.[3] Of course a "legitimate" secondary account isn't actually legitimate if the primary account is itself a sock.
  • The current user page for დამოკიდებულება page admits they are a new account for ΞΔΞ,[4] supposedly because they lost the password to ΞΔΞ. The დამოკიდებულება userpage has claimed to be "Retired" for the last half year, but they continue to edit as of yesterday.
  • Risto_hot_sir was globally locked by Wim b last year.[5] Editor Interaction Timeline makes it clear that Risto_hot_sir and დამოკიდებულება are the same individual.[6] There is an 8 month gap between the accounts, but massive overlap.
  • Luke Jedi Skywalker, jedi3, and Nwalker3 were all blocked as socks of ΞΔΞ and დამოკიდებულება per this EnWikiQuote discussion.
    • დამოკიდებულება admits they are Luke Jedi Skywalker, and evasively tries to wikilaywer that it wouldn't count as sockpuppetry if they were also Nwalker3 and Jedi3.[7]
    • Editor Interaction Timeline confirms the massive overlap between Jedi3 and Risto hot sir.[8]
    • Nwalker3 has a short edit history, but the Editor Interaction Timeline overlap with Risto hot sir[9] is huge in relation to that short history.

I suggest all of the above accounts be globally locked. I expect this sock will return, and I expect they will show up in one of these two[10][11] page histories. One is a redirect to the other, and the page history is grossly dominated by all-but-one of the socks listed above. Alsee (talk) 06:01, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Add another to this list- Mino muka, as per this thread. - Sitush (talk) 06:53, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

After further investigation I realized that Mino_muka/Risto_hot_sir/Vilho-Veli/Veli-Turo/Roope poor/Savonhelmi/ is one (globally locked) user with serial accounts. They are particularly interested in the Wikiquote Finnish proverbs article, and appear to edit there with every new sock account.
ΞΔΞ/დამოკიდებულება/დამოკიდებუილება2/Jedi_Skywalker/ and likely jedi3/Nwalker3 is a different user with serial accounts. Concerns have been raised about their edits, but I'm unclear whether they are serious.
The suspicious intersection between them appears to have been a coincidence. They both have large edit counts. Alsee (talk) 11:37, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

Blocked user returns?Edit

Hello, not sure where to post this, but the abuse taking place here appears to have resumed under a registered account. For future cases, is there an easier way to report these edits or someone directly on en.wikipedia whom I should notify of them? Many thanks. Toccata quarta (talk) 14:02, 6 December 2020 (UTC)

Quero cuidar corrigir e ajudar, tenho essa capacidade, por isso solicito meu desbloqueioEdit

Por favor! Pode me ajudar? O que devo fazer para ser desbloqueado? eu cometi erros e fui bloqueado, minha justiça me faltou, eu não vi nada errado no que fiz, mas se eu puder resolver tão somente o que estava errado nos artigos, saiba que eu corrigi na minha inocência e boa fé, ficaria muito contente, de alguém, talvez você pudesse me desbloquear, ou levar isso a discussão, eu quero continuar, vou evitar sofismas dessa vez vou ser mais cuidadoso . "Uma vez falei, ainda duas vezes, mas não voltarei a falar, por isso me arrependo no pó e nas cinzas" esta entre aspas uma frase da Bíblia Sagrada estriada do livro de Jó. Mas eu não sei referenciar aqui ainda, me comprometo a aprender a referenciar na página de testes, antes de editar qualquer artigo, e vou pedir orientação como regra, antes de fazer qualquer outra edição que possa ser considerada abusiva. Desculpe! Por Favor, peço para me desbloquear, com todo respeito, por gentileza. Obrigado! François Yvytu Tataendy (talk) 05:40, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Global lock para Correção 2.5Edit

Oi, Tks4Fish. Esse editor, Correção 2.5 (talk contribs  email) é mais um sock do Suaaltexareal (talk contribs  email) (como você pode ver aqui). Parece que ele vem cometendo vandalismos em outras WPs. Eu ia pedir o travamento global dele em Steward requests/Global, mas não consigo editar a página. Você pode travar essa conta? PS: Onde faço o requerimento para que minha conta seja "autoconfirmada" para poder editar Steward requests/Global? Grato. --SirEdimon (talk) 04:03, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Olá @SirEdimon:! Travei a conta. Quanto ao autoconfirmado aqui no meta, basta efetuar 5 edições e ter mais de 4 dias de registro. Abraços! —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 04:17, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
Obrigado.--SirEdimon (talk) 04:21, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
