Hi Wiki13

I happened to come across User:Wiki13oncom and am wondering if they are connected to you? Just curious. Ottawahitech (talk) 20:07, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

@Ottawahitech Never seen the account nor is it mine. Wiki13 (talk) 20:11, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Congratulations for stewardshipEdit

Hello, Wiki13. Congratulations because you have been elected a steward by Wikimedia community. :) I hope you will do good job. Regards. --Uncitoyentalk 14:16, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Unlock Account 永恒之蓝Edit

Why lock my Friend's Account? He no Long-term abuse, Please Unlock. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sarosivak (talk) 22:04, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

I didn't lock your friends account. I only removed some global groups he shouldn't have as a locked user. Please ask the locking steward for what reason exactly your "friend" was locked. I can't make that judgement unfortunately as I don't know what that reason exactly was. --Wiki13 (talk) 22:07, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Question:Edit

Did you by any chance create a Miraheze account? An account on Miraheze was created using your name, so I'd like you to confirm it was you or not. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs)

@DarkMatterMan4500:: No, that's not me. I don't have a Miraheze account --Wiki13 (talk) 13:31, 6 March 2021 (UTC)
@Wiki13: Alright, the Wiki13 account on Miraheze has now been globally locked for impersonation. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 13:36, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Page restrictionEdit

Hello. Please cancel your page edit restriction you made here: revid/logid, as you blocked it from my edits, that are quite frequent there. Even if it's being changed abusive way it's being restored very fast now. Hope you'll read it and react accordingly asap. THanks. P.S. You can restrict it after event if you wish (when it's update would not be so critical) but not now.85.238.102.83 18:21, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi, I removed the protection for now. If it continues like it did before it will most likely be protected again. Wiki13 (talk) 18:38, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
I see. However such frequent (vandalic) interest to that page as it's happened last days looks quite strange (as such topics were not so "popular" from it's started). It looks like someone consciously trying to "knock me out" from editing with such "from afar" way (as organizing anonymous vandalic actions for someone, like you, to decide restrict a page edit for all unregistered contributors... And me). I already met such behaviour before (like when I starting to edit any page - someone start to anonymously vandal a page I started to edit... Then someone restrict a page and done - I can't edit it more despite I've done positive edits only). Anyway thanks for your time and fast reaction. Hope noone will return to mischief it more. At least till events pass.85.238.102.83 06:18, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

Can you please lock these LTA accounts? I no longer use an account and cannot use SRG.Edit

37.48.21.227 on cs.wiktEdit

Thank you very much for blocking IP:37.48.21.227 on cs.wikt. --Kusurija (talk) 08:39, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

37.48.20.138 on cs.wiktionaryEdit

IP:37.48.20.138 on cs.wiktionary: please block. Thank you. --Kusurija (talk) 11:02, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

@Kusurija: requests typically be made to all stewards at [[SRG]. Ideally for cs.wikt you should be making requests to the administrators as that is their purpose on site. You can find a list at https://cs.wiktionary.org/w/index.php?title=Speci%C3%A1ln%C3%AD:U%C5%BEivatel%C3%A9&group=sysop and a quick glance shows that they have all been in the past week.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:30, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Yes, it would be fine, if they are present. When at the moment no one is present, we have to ask stewards for help. Thank you for understanding. --Kusurija (talk) 12:23, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
@Kusurija: You HAVE to at least ask and give them time to answer wikt:cs:Speciální:Příspěvky/Kusurija and you haven't. Nothing that I see on the IP address is a killer to where and what they are editing.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:29, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
For now I globally blocked the /18 where all the IPs came from only affecting anonymous users, as there were a lot of genuine users on it. --Wiki13 (talk) 14:16, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Newpage vandalismsEdit

IP range blockEdit

Hi, I've got blocked today with the following reason:

Your IP address is in a range that has been blocked on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis.
The block was made by Wiki13 (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Open Proxy/Webhost: Contact stewards if you are affected. 

I am using company laptop which is connected to a VPN. Can you please unblock the access, and help to prevent this happening again. Wolfmartyn (talk) 10:55, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi @Wolfmartyn, this IP is not targeted towards you in particular. The IP you gave me indicates that you somehow use Zscaler as some sort of private network. Since these kinds of networks are often abused, they are blocked as open proxies. I have now adjusted the block, so that only anonymous users will be affected and logged-in users will not. If you still have problems, please let me know. Wiki13 (talk) 11:23, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for this, and indeed Zscaler is what our company is using. Wolfmartyn (talk) 13:39, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

My IP Blocked without any reasonEdit

I see that my IP is blocked and I am unable to contribute in Wikipedia. I have a dedicated Broadband connection and not shared with anyone. This is not a Cyber Cafe. I believe that it is blocked by mistake. Hence request you to unblock it.


Start of block: 14:33, 11 May 2021 Expiry of block: 14:33, 11 May 2024 Your current IP address is 165.225.122.169 and the blocked range is 165.225.0.0/17. 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 or send an email to the stewards OTRS queue at stewards@wikimedia.org including all above details.

Action requestedEdit

So: I am heavily involved at English Wikinews. We have some (slowly moving) voting going on at Request for Permissions. Specifically: we are hurting for Bureaucrats.....and badly. Particularly: We need some permission ADDED for some users and some permissions TAKEN AWAY for some user. Our 1 'Crat has been unresponsive for some time now. Any chance of you taking a look over there, please??--Bddpaux (talk) 17:09, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

I get it: you guys are slow to act on these if that project has 'crats.....but: we only have 1 and she's been largely out of the loop for a LONG TIME NOW. Can we get you over to our place at English Wikinews to take some action, please?--Bddpaux (talk) 02:08, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

A globally blocked user attacks my pagesEdit

Hey,

please block this vandal - https://pl.wikimedia.org/wiki/Specjalna:Wład/Jajnik_z_Tarnowa, it's LTA, probably Wikinger. It attacks my pages on the Wikimedia Poland wiki. Thanks in advance, Jamnik z Tarnowa (talk) 14:50, 7 October 2021 (UTC)

Несправедливая блокировкаEdit

Здравствуйте!

Я очень доверяю Вашей компетентности. Не понимаю, почему я получил блокировку, к тому же на такой длительный срок. Я не вёл в Википедии никакой рекламной деятельности и совершенно в неё не писал. Разве что один раз правил статью, которая касалась моего друга. Прошу отменить блокировку. Я законопослушный гражданин, кандидат филологических наук, преподаватель литературы. Википедия интересует меня только с точки зрения информации. Никакой противоправной, коммерческой, рекламной деятельностью я никогда не занимался.

С уважением и верой в Вашу справедливость Леонид Владимирович Немцев

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)

Blocked without reasonsEdit

Hello Wiki 13,

I have been blocked a few months ago (11th May 2021) without any reason by you (user "Wiki13"). I can see from a warning pop us message that the reason of being blocked is "Open Proxy/Webhost", but I dont know what does it mean. My proxy address is 165.225.194.191.

I require my address to be unblocked.

Thanks in advance for your help. Andrea

Hi @Andrea19993:,
First and foremost my apologies for the late reply. I have quite busy in real life recently, so that means Wikimedia projects were on a lower priority.
Your IP belongs to a provider which offers proxy services. Since these services are prone to abuse it has been blocked. Please note that this block is not targeted towards you. I have added a global IP block exemption to your account, which will expire automatically when the global block expires. If you need any more help, please let me know. --Wiki13 (talk) 19:29, 31 January 2022 (UTC)

BlockedEdit

Hi!

I have been blocked by you and I don't know why. My numer is 194.59.250.21

Since I am blocked I have not been able to write to anyone but now I can (for a short while I think). Can you help me, please?

Yours sincerely Johan Bengtsson

Hi @Beson:, sorry for the late reply. I have been busy recently. I have checked the IP address you gave me. The IP in question is assigned to a known web hoster / colocator. We block these IP addresses because they are often used to evade blocks or anonynmous vandalizing. I have granted you an global IP block exempt, so you can continue working. Please note this exemption will expire the moment the block expires. --Wiki13 (talk) 14:44, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
