How we will see unregistered usersEdit

Hi!

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)

To be honest, the edit summary probably did not need hiding; however, that username seems like it did. ~~~~

Stewards electionsEdit

Hey, Hasley! Thank you for creating my subsections! To be honest, I was reserving that for after having answered the general questions (I like doing that and I have 3 more to answer) so that I wouldn't get personal questions until then but I guess it won't hurt and help is always appreciated! :)) - Klein Muçi (talk) 14:15, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

jawiki LTAEdit

Hi, Hasley. There's an LTA from Japanese Wikipedia who keeps coming back with different sockpuppets (many of those would be found in SRG archive); is there any way to stop them by blocking their IP or range? Thanks, Svartava (talk) 10:27, 11 March 2022 (UTC)

Hello, Svartava. I am doubtful about range-blocking because the ranges are way too wide, and doing so will affect many innocent users—there would be far too much collateral damage, unfortunately. At this time, the best we can do is to deal with it as the socks arise. Kind regards, Sgd. —Hasley 14:14, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
OK, I appreciate your response. Best, --Svartava (talk) 14:26, 11 March 2022 (UTC)

Blocked userEdit

Hi Hasley! I went to Lumenasblog's talk to deliver a welcome message with TW and found out he was blocked. He is a new user under the Igbo Wikimedians User Group and after a training session Introduction to Igbo Wikiquote II organised by Ig Wiki Librarians Hub for her old members and new members from the Association of Nigerian Authors, new members were asked to create their userpages so that I can send them a welcome message and for them to understand how WMF works. More information about the event can be found on the event dashboard.

Lumenasblog was part of those that were advised to create their userpages by typing in something brief about themselves and publishing. Please I plead on his behalf, if there's something he didn't do well, he can undo or make it better. Kindly reconsider. Thank you! Olugold (talk) 10:23, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

Hello, Olugold. The user you specify has only two local edits, both of which were creating an user page that can be considered inappropriate, or even promotional, on several projects. This goes against Meta's policies, and is the reason why I blocked him.
I have, however, unblocked the user per this thread—as long as this behaviour stops. Please note that he is also blocked on the English Wikipedia, and, preferably, he should be unblocked there, too. Therefore, I strongly encourage the user to change his username to avoid confusion, as required by policy, and not creating such kind of user pages, as well as not posting links to his own website. Best, Sgd. —Hasley 15:26, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
Thank you very much @Hasley for your swift response. He'll do as you have suggested. I am grateful! Olugold (talk) 19:15, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

@Mykola7 Looks like I had blocked the smaller 195.114.146.0/23 (talk · contribs) for a longer term before your request; I assume there was additional abuse coming from the other subranges? ~~~~

18:53, 26 March 2022 (UTC)
1234qwer1234qwer4, From the beginning of his activity, UkWiki CU has defined range as /20, but then administrators blocked /21, and it seems to cover all the IP which he used before, because then he left us for a time. --Mykola talk 19:13, 26 March 2022 (UTC)

Request for Globally lock these AccountEdit

Dear Hasley , लक्ष्मीसागर वार्ष्णेय and is an Sockpuppet account of Adam Chacko .

@Hasley Please can you Fully Protected My Userpage and Usertalk page because I don't like edit on our Userpage and My Usertalk page is interwiki Redirect, this is my private and personally Request To you due to lack editing on meta and other Reason is on Hindi Wikipedia some blocked or globally locked also abuses me in past, in current time my userpage on hindi Wikipedia have fully protected to creation and temproary semi protected my usertalkpage from Vandalism.Aviram NoSurprisesPlease 05:42, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

While I do not object to this, user pages are very rarely protected (only autopatrollers can edit others' pages), and talk pages should only be locked if they are abused, but not preemptively. If you disagree, maybe you should start a new thread to address it at WM:RFH — this was already discussed at length there. Best, Sgd. —Hasley 11:23, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
@Hasley Oh well that's good, I withdraw your request, for this request,i apologize to you.Aviram NoSurprisesPlease 12:15, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

AyudaEdit

Hola Hasley, soy un editor de es-wiki pero desde el día de ayer tengo un problema cuando trato de realizar una reversión o editar cualquier artículo me sale un error, dice que mi ip ha sido bloqueada pero no entiendo bien cual es la razón necesito ayuda. Tengo el flag de reversor y más de 15 años editando en Wikipedia y nunca había tenido este problema. No estoy utilizando algún servicio que cambia mi dirección IP, como un servicio proxy o VPN, no he utilizado recientemente ningún servicio de cambio de proxy, VPN o IP. Ya envíe un correo a stewards@wikimedia.org pero aún no hay respuesta. Ojalá me puedas ayudar. Gracias.

Esto es lo que sale en el mensaje:

You do not have permission to quickly rollback the edits of the last user who edited a particular page, for the following reason:

Your IP address has been blocked on all wikis.

The block was made by Tks4Fish (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Open proxy: Visit the help page if you are affected .

  • Start of block: 14:33, 9 April 2022
  • Expiry of block: 15:33, 12 April 2022
  • Your current IP address is xxxxxxx. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

If you believe you were blocked by mistake, you can find additional information and instructions in the No open proxies global policy. Otherwise, to discuss the block please post a request for review on Meta-Wiki. Mansoncc (talk) 15:54, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

LTA Adam ChackoEdit

Hi. As you probably know, this LTA regularly creates multiple sockpuppets for disruptive editing and does very problematic things such as their disruptive editing, abusing and writing offensive messages on talk pages of users, removing comments and reports related to them, etc. They've been doing such stuff both logged-in and logged-out. It would be really helpful if this could be prevented by globally locking their IP range(s) so they can't do more disruption or create more accounts. The 2 ranges I know they use/have used are [1] and [2] (already locked), but you could check if you find more. Even if the ranges are large ones, at this point I think the LTA should really be stopped. Kindly look into this! —Svārtava (t/u) • 02:49, 14 May 2022 (UTC)

This has been done, Svartava. Best, Sgd. —Hasley 03:11, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
Thank you! However, I see it is a softblock so it wouldn't prevent them from creating new accounts from that range and disrupting with that account. Could you disable account creation as well? —Svārtava (t/u) • 03:51, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
Global blocks already disallow account creation. (See Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Admins and patrollers#Allow global blocks to optionally not block account creation.) Sgd. —Hasley 04:06, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying and for the quick action.  Svārtava (t/u) • 04:37, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
