Hey Trijnstel--would you mind lengthening the block on 2607:FB90:0:0:0:0:0:0/32? DeltaQuad had them blocked for being used by the dog rapper vandal (woof! rap!), but the range was abused the other day by WhenDatHotlineBling, who's vandalizing all the wikis, and so a longer cross-wiki block is probably appropriate. Hotline typically creates a bunch of accounts, lets em sleep for months sometimes, and then uses them through these kinds of ranges since they aren't blocked for registered accounts: something to think about. Thanks! Drmies (talk) 16:05, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

@Drmies: This IPv6 range has been frequently blocked for the past two years, but only for a short period of time. Problem is that not only the vandal is being affected by it, but also numerous other users. I'll try to look at different options soon, though. Trijnsteltalk 17:31, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
There was talk of a global edit filter for the talkpage crap that was flying around, because blocking like Trijnstel noted affects a boatload amount of people globally. It already affects a ton on enwiki. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 05:27, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
@Drmies and DeltaQuad: Tegel has now blocked three /40 IPv6 range blocks instead. That should stop him too, without having too much collateral. Trijnsteltalk 22:34, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Whatever you can do--thanks! Drmies (talk) 22:42, 5 January 2019 (UTC)


Please explain why you reverted my edit to the office page.

Shentino (talk) 23:30, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Well, I thought the extra comma was actually needed (but I admit: I'm not a native English speaker). Trijnsteltalk 23:32, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying. As a native english speaker myself I can say that the comma is probably wrong. That said, I think checking with you about it was still correct just in case you had other reasons. Shentino (talk) 00:37, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

editable section markers in tablesEdit

Hiya. Favour to ask. In CUwiki, on the list of checkusers, I belief that I created editable section markers within the table (normally those links disappear). For the life of me I cannot remember the code that I used to do that. Would you be able to paste the code here so I can see if it helps me through my current issue. Thanks if you can.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:05, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: I have no idea what "editable section markers" are. Can you elaborate it further, please? BTW, part of the code of the list is:
|[[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] <small>([[m:Special:CentralAuth/{{{1}}}|SUL]] · <span class="plainlinks">[{{fullurl:Special:ListUsers|username={{urlencode:{{{1}}}}}&group=&limit=1}} local]</span>)</small>
Does this help? Trijnsteltalk 22:00, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Vito adviced me to look at the css/js you edited on the CU wiki. There I found this:
#mw-hidden-catlinks { font-size:90%; }

/* make user experience moar-kewl */
 -webkit-transition: color 0.4s ease;
    -moz-transition: color 0.4s ease;
      -o-transition: color 0.4s ease;
         transition: color 0.4s ease;

/* Style for horizontal lists (separator following item) */
.skin-monobook .hlist dl,
.skin-modern .hlist dl,
.skin-vector .hlist dl {
    line-height: 1.5em;
.hlist dl,
.hlist ol,
.hlist ul {
    margin: 0;
.hlist dd,
.hlist dt,
.hlist li { 
    display: inline;
    margin: 0;
/* Display nested lists inline */
.hlist dl dl,
.hlist ol ol,
.hlist ul ul {
    display: inline;
/* Generate interpuncts */
.hlist dd:after,
.hlist dt:after,
.hlist li:after {
    content: " ·";
    font-weight: bold;
.hlist dd:last-child:after,
.hlist dt:last-child:after,
.hlist li:last-child:after {
    content: none;
/* for IE 8 */
.hlist dd.nopunct:after,
.hlist dt.nopunct:after,
.hlist li.nopunct:after {
    content: none;
/* Add parens around nested lists */
.hlist dl dl:before,
.hlist ol ol:before,
.hlist ul ul:before {
    content: "(";
.hlist dl dl:after,
.hlist ol ol:after,
.hlist ul ul:after {
    content: ")";
/* Put numbers in ordered lists */
.hlist.hnum ol li {
    counter-increment: level1;
.hlist.hnum ol li:before {
    content: counter(level1) " ";
.hlist.hnum ol ol li {
    counter-increment: level2;
.hlist.hnum ol ol li:before {
    content: counter(level2) " ";
Sorry if I was vague. If you put something like ===P=== into a table, it doesn't (always?) give a section [edit] marker/link, ie. they disappear. In the list of checkusers I believe that I coded it so that one could get a editable click so one could edit part of the table (where we were using a {{/row}} template) rather than that whole long list. I just don't remember what I did; whether it was to play with the sections, or to play with the table code? My means to try that elsewhere hasn't suitably mimicked that and/or the wikicode of the table has defeated me.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:56, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
PS. that code from common.css is what converts asterisked (vertical) lists to be horizontal lists.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:01, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Ahhh, now I get what you mean. Perhaps this is what you were looking for?

{| class="noprint" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 style="margin: 0.0em 0.0em 0.5em 0.5em; float:right; padding: 0.5em 0.0em 0.8em 1.4em;{{#if:{{{width|}}}| width:{{{width}}};|}}" | __TOC__ |}

Trijnsteltalk 21:26, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
Nope, that wasn't it. I thought that I had done something specific around the === alpha === though I must be mistaken.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:11, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
To be fair, I do think that's what you meant. It's on top of the table - before the 'list of accounts', columns etc - and when I remove that part, the individual sections can't be edited anymore. Trijnsteltalk 14:06, 24 February 2019 (UTC) Never mind. I now tried it and you're right. I don't know where to look at. I think I've done everything. Perhaps the suggestion of Base helps?

Hi there, I cannot use edit when I’m signed in under the IP this IP is a internet service part of East Yorkshire Motor Services, in which I use their service daily. Could I make an appeal on the suspension to allow users to sign in and edit under the IP thank you. OrbitalEnd48401 (talk) 15:19, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

@OrbitalEnd48401: You could request a global IP block exempt on SRGP. Trijnsteltalk 19:09, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

This is regarding an IP block at school...Edit

Hiya Trijnstel,

You've seemed to block Horsham West Primary School's one of several IP addresses. I really wanna contribute using an account but my school laptop is saying that you've globally blcoked I know I'm typing from my home's IP address, but I just wanna say... some nuff-nuff irresponsible idiot vandalized Wikipedia. I really want to make a Wikipedia account at school, so I'm just requesting that... could you possibly enable account creation for that IP?

This is Rory, signing off from home, as 07:42, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

P.S I'll try and request an account on Monday, in the timezone of AEST

Rory. Simply create an account here and you should be right to edit. Special:CreateAccount.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:10, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

Global block mwangi2017Edit

Hi, I sent you an email about this. I would like to add that meanwhile my co-admin who had been counceling the user before came up with the request to undo the block. I agree with him this is definitely no case of "spam only account", but just a still relatively fresh user with some 80 edits at swwiki who has made some usual mistakes and has accepted advice ad worked on his ways. Kipala (talk) 11:34, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Userpage deletion and accounts blockEdit

Hello ma'am, I'm vanishing from all wikimedia projects. So please delete all my userpages including the local user page in Assamese Wikipedia (

Would you please translate VisualEditor/Newsletter/2019/July into your favorite language for me? I'd really appreciate it. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 17:30, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Invitations to translateEdit

Hello, Trijnstel,

Community Insights/Translation/2019/1-Invitation and the other pages listed at Community Insights/Translation#Requests for translations are ready to be translated. There is a little more information about this group of invitations on the mailing list. Also, please keep an eye on that page: more pages will be ready for you soon!

Thank you so much for your help translating these messages. Dutch is one of the key languages for this survey, and I really would like to have high-quality translations for these invitations to editors at the Dutch Wikipedia. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:10, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Deleted user pageEdit

Hi! Regarding the deletion of User:Vanished user adhmfdfmykrdyr, the behavior of this user on meta is being discussed in an open Arbcom case on the English Wikipedia (en:Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Fram), and the history of this page is, in my opinion, needed as evidence in this case. Could I convince you to blank the page (thus restoring the history) for now and then delete it after the Arbcom case closes? --Guy Macon (talk) 18:00, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

@Guy Macon:   Done. Trijnsteltalk 21:53, 28 August 2019 (UTC)


Hello Trijnstel. I am Checkuser on Thai Wikipedia. Some users in my community saw that Thai Checkuser team should have an email for the local project (similarly functionaries-en lists wikimedia org or checkuser-en-wp wikipedia org on English Wikipedia) for contact and submit sensitive evidence for investigation. but I don't know about enable email. Can you help or recommend to me? --Geonuch (talk) 13:03, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

About mailing list of global renameEdit

Long time no see, Trijnstel. It's already the end of the year. I hope something good will happen to you. I have a question! Do you still manage mailing list of global rename? I was going to send an email because I had something to discuss about renaming. But I found out that I didn't join the mailing list because of my laziness. If you are still managing the mailing list, can I send you an email? Thanks, Sotiale (talk) 11:53, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

@Sotiale: You are subscribed to that mailing list, but apparantly not with the right email address. Can you email me? Then I can fix it. Thanks. Trijnsteltalk 11:56, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
Ahh..? Oh, oh my.. I can't believe I made such a mistake. It's stupid, but it was my mistake. Mail was being misclassified..! It was a matter I never thought of. I checked again and I was subscribed. Sorry to bother you. --Sotiale (talk) 12:02, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
