Fantoches de Guilherme151097

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).

User script to access other watchlists

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)Reply[reply]

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.

Help needed – Block ID #206397

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.

IP Block 206397

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)Reply[reply]

@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.

Leonardo José Raimundo

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)Reply[reply]

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.

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)Reply[reply]

Additional socks of Vilho-Veli

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)Reply[reply]

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

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)Reply[reply]

Hello, not sure where to post this, but the abuse taking place here appears to have resumed under a registered account.

Hello Tks4Fish, I am User:Malcolmxl5, an administrator on en.Wikipedia.

I have looking at User:Verseau following the global lock that you placed on them at 16:37, 26 January 2021.

User:Verseau appears to be a Wikipedian of longstanding and in good standing on their home wiki, ja.Wikipedia, having created their account in 2006. This is unlike the LTA vandal (Architect134?) who has been troubling us on en.Wikipedia, on the Article for Deletion pages, who typically uses recently created throwaway accounts and appears to have no affiliation with Japan or ja.Wikipedia.

User:Verseau's few edits on en.Wikipedia are mostly innocuous; they seem to have come to en.Wikipedia to comment on two Japan-related deletion discussions and then went on to comment on a few others. Their last edit[12] however was to revert my edit removing two fake !votes placed by the LTA vandal and I assume it was this that triggered the global lock. It is possible that they did not realised what I had done and thought I was removing legitimate !votes.

I think they may have misunderstood what was happening and made the wrong edit at the wrong time. I think there is enough doubt to ask if you would unlock User:Verseau. Would you be willing to do that?

With regards, --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 03:27, 27 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deceased user locked


I'm shocked to see that User:Flyer22 Frozen, a longtime and prolific contributor who recently passed away to the sadness of many of her fellow en-wiki editors, has had her account globally locked. Blocks and locks are marks of shame, let's be real here. Why should she bear this even in death? I really hope this isn't required. If it is, that rule should be changed. I think the lock should be lifted so when people click on her contributions they don't see the big red "globally locked" notice with no reason given, making her look like a wrongdoer.

I don't mean to take this out on you if you're just doing your job, but this was just so shocking to see what (to me) is the ultimate mark of disrespect in Wikipedia culture done to her. Crossroads (talk) 21:19, 5 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(talk page watcher) Crossroads, it's common practice to lock (and on some projects, locally block) deceased users' accounts to prevent compromise and abuse, which would arguably be far worse than a lock notice. The same is the case for most editors listed at here. Best, Blablubbs (talk) 21:26, 5 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's a bad practice and if it is not policy, I would like it to be reversed. If it is policy, I would like to know how to change it. I see it wasn't done in some cases, like here. If account security is a concern, then why not leave them be and in the extremely rare case the account is seemingly hacked and starts editing after death, then lock them? Preventing that in a tiny portion of cases is not worth shaming deceased users forever. Crossroads (talk) 21:40, 5 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(talk page stalker) @Crossroads: Locking is not intended to be any kind of disrespect or "shaming", nor does a lock imply any wrongdoing. It is simply a function that technically disables anyone logging into the account, in this case because we know they are no longer alive. Once it is confirmed someone is deceased, there is no legitimate person who should be logged in to the account. You misinterpret locking as some kind of punitive action against the account, when it is just a technical function to prevent someone from accessing the account . --IWI (talk) 21:01, 7 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Crossroads: as IWI said, lock serves simply to disable login. Yes, it is used to curb abuse, but it doesn't necessarily mean that a locked account was used abusively. It is routine to lock deceased users for security reasons, and doesn't shame them or their memory. Best, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontribs 00:44, 8 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

next stewards elections

Hi Tks4fish, I voted for you last time and I'm happy to see that you became a steward. My question is: are you going to stay as a steward automatically? So I can now vote for the new candidates next week, right? I voted for you because I like the idea of a Portuguese as part of the stewards family: I am an admin on a small Wiki, Wiki Ligure, which is actually the Genoese Wiki, and the affinity between Portuguese and Zeneize is high and well known since the time of Christopher Columbus. All the best, --Luensu1959 (talk) 14:34, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Luensu1959! First of all, thanks for the support! As for your question, the current stewards undergo a confirmation process, where the steward can manifest their desire to keep (or not) being a steward, and the community can comment on that. As for the new candidates, you can already vote for them, from February 5, 14:00 UTC, until February 26, 13:59 UTC. The page to do that is Stewards/Elections 2021. Also, really cool that you're a small wiki sysop, especially one from an Italian language! My ancestors come from there, though from a different region with their own dialect.

Actually, it's all Romance languages (Línguas românicas), whereas some have become national languages and others succumbed and are still fighting to survive like Genoese, Occitanian and Catalan (the last is better off). Ironically, Genoa was the leading and only superpower in the Middle Ages, but its bankers did not lend any money to Columbus, so he turned to the queen of Portugal and later to the king of Spain. You know how it ended... What region do your ancestors come from? --Luensu1959 (talk) 21:59, 12 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ottawahitech, please. A lot of editors, myself included, have tried to help you contribute constructively here. Evidently, it has not worked. A significant portion of your recent edits involve comments that are entirely unnecessary, provacative, or incorrect. I understand that you're new to communicating with other users on Meta, but you cannot continue assuming bad faith of every editor you converse with, and you cannot continue asking people to explain basic things for you or to find a certain comment on a page for you.

Hums4r global lock

Hi Tks4Fish, I'm admin on English Wikipedia who was attempting to mentor Hums4r before a dispute over the AfD of an article he created spun out of control. I just blocked his sockpuppet (which was being used to try to appeal) and I realised I don't know how he came to be globally locked rather than being locally blocked. Although I'd reopened the SPI I was concerned he might be being set up; there were a lot of accounts hostile to him at the AfD and he'd helped uncover other sockpuppetry. I can't find a discussion on Meta, though I can see you globally locked him according to Do you mind sharing details on the process? I'm not familiar with global locks.

Bloqueio Global

Olá, tudo bem??

Mandei uma mensagem na discussão do Teles e gostaria de deixar a cópia aqui, pois acredito que possa ser interessante:

"Olá Teles, tudo bem?

O @Érico: me pediu para enviar uma mensagem a você sobre um pedido de bloqueio global que está acontecendo na Wiki EN a respeito da minha conta, aqui.

Basicamente, fui acusado de Hoax e tive alguns artigos deletados por que as minhas fontes eram "falsas". No entanto, não pratiquei Hoax, porque todos os artigos que eu criei foram embasados em livros e mencionados nos artigos, como esse aqui.

Outros artigos, como este, além dos livros tinham também fontes referenciadas, como essa lei que apelidou uma rua em seu nome, podendo ser conferida aqui.

Eu não tive sequer chance de me justificar, fui bloqueado infinitamente na Wiki EN e ainda pediram meu bloqueio global dois minutos depois!

Minha boa-fé se baseia, principalmente, porque quando eu percebi que os artigos estavam sendo questionados, eu mesmo pedi suas eliminações, como pode ser conferido aqui

Se você olhar na página do pedido de bloqueio global, ele está pedindo o bloqueio por eu ser um sockpuppet, mas eu não sou um sockpuppet e fui perdoado daquelas acusações imputadas a muito tempo.

Além disso, criei outros diversos artigos que sequer foram banidos, USANDO AS MESMAS FONTES, como Nera, Bardo, Giovanni, e muitos outros.

Fui banido permanentemente da wiki en com a razão de "claramente não estar aqui para contribuir em uma enciclopédia", porém isso não é verdade, eu só criei e expandi os artigos em questão, incluindo este, porque na página de discussão as pessoas estavam pedindo a expansão do artigo, conforme pode se conferir aqui.

Na wiki pt eu patrulho páginas novas, fui responsável por propor a deleção muitos vandalismos, e responsável por criar, dentre outras, o artigo a repeito do tiroteio na Carolina do Norte, que pode ser visto aqui

Por favor, por empatia, peço que me ajude a não ser bloqueado globalmente, e ser desbloqueado na wiki en! Houve uma GRANDE confusão, e eu estou sofrendo uma grande injustiça.

Por favor, peço socorro!" (O Correto (talk) 12:02, 19 May 2021 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Question about user:Blue Tristram

Hello Tks4Fish !!!

I have a question about the globally lock of ja:user:Blue Tristram.

You have globally locked user:Blue Tristram as LTA.

However, this user has only postied to the Japanese Wikipedia except the automatically generated Wikidate articles, and in Japanese Wikipedia the user is not blocked.

I cannot find the reason why you globally locked this user from the published records.

So please explain.

As you can see from my post record, I am not active in Meta, so please reply in Japanese Wikipedia.

There is no necessity to translate your text into Japanese.

Thank you !!!

biggest blocker bots

Over at en.wp, General Notability said you would be effecting the global translation of ST47ProxyBot's blocks. It looks like, by the end of the month, there will have been over half a million. Do you have data on what percentage are from which continents? Which countries are the most frequently blocked? Are these TOR exit points that are being blocked?

Also, any disruptive edit can be reverted, so why should I be blocked? You said you blocked me because of an "open proxy". I don't even know what that is.

So, I saw that you have sent me this message on my talk page, and after you sent me this, I just went on ahead and read the article. However, there are just things that I can't really control (although I probably should), such as asking stupid or pointless questions like private data or what have you.

How we will see unregistered users


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)

Abuse log

Hello Tks4fish. I, as a rollbacker, a few moments ago I was using SWViewer in which I saw that the user page of an IP was marked with {{Delete}}, but the IP was altering the template, so I decided to edit the version of the user who put the Delete template to undo the IP changes, but by accident I activated filter 161 a bunch of times. I guess it won't be the first time I've detected vandalism on other users' pages, or changes that require verification, as in my case. The filter doesn't allow me to edit other user pages because I'm "standard", and I honestly don't know what that is; I would like to know how I can stop being one, I don't want to put my hands on user pages that don't belong to me, but on Wikipedia in Spanish (my home wiki) there are many cases of users or IPs that vandalize the pages of others, or how pass this time, they vandalize the "Delete" template, but I can't intervene because filter 161 obstructs me. Also, I don't want others to think I'm troublesome after seeing my abuse filter log, because in these cases I just want to help remove harmful edits.

Hello. It seems you have blocked by IP, despite me not doing any type of vandalism. The reason given is that my IP is an open proxy, a fact I did not know myself, until now. I'm currently trying to nominate an article on Wikipedia to GA class, and the review is undergoing. So, I need to get unblocked to continue the work. And obviously, due to the IP block, I cannot edit currently. I sent my block info to, but did not get a response, yet. My ticket number is #2022012610005028. I also requested an unblock at WP:UTRS. Thank you. Mspriz (talk) 15:12, 26 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @Mspriz:! I've replied to your email there. Sorry for the inconvenience. Best, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontrib (he/him) 16:22, 26 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, Tks4Fish,

I feel like the only person here not asking to be unblocked! I don't know the deletion policy on Meta but the redirect ARBCOM was created by an IP used by a globally blocked editor. On WP, such page creations would be deleted but I don't know the norm on Meta. Thank you! Liz (talk) 01:14, 27 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Liz! Here we normally don't delete those as far as I'm aware, so it's probably going to be kept, even more so as it's a somewhat useful page. I do understand where you're coming from and try to always DENY where possible. All the best, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontrib (he/him) 19:44, 27 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proxy block

Hello Tks4Fish,

We are at the Federal Radio Corporation training staff members on how to contribute to naija wikipedia in incubator. Unfortunately they have all been affected your proxy block. Some of the blocked new users are User:Rupysnow and User:Shine4ever. I don't know if I can reveal the IPs here. Please your help is urgently needed.

Hello, T Cells! Can you send an email to stewards wikimedia org with the block details, and post the ticket number here so that I can do the proper analysis of the situation? Best, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontrib (he/him) 16:29, 28 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sadly, the training ended about 2 hours ago. T CellsTalk 16:42, 28 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry about that, T Cells. I was unavailable then, and as soon as I came onwiki I replied here. Best, —Thanks for the fish! talkcontrib (he/him) 16:48, 28 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No worries. Thank you. T CellsTalk 19:45, 28 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Favor desbloquear mi cuenta

Hola, Tks4Fish. Mi cuenta ha sido bloqueada por ti. Soy colaborador, principalmente, del Wiccionario alemán. --Luis Elíver (talk) 14:40, 28 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hola Luis Elíver! No he bloqueado tu cuenta, pero tu IP puede estar globalmente bloqueado. Para que yo investigue más, ¿puedes enviar la info del bloqueo a stewards wikimedia org y decirme el número del ticket?
