Vandalism in progress

Moved from RFH.--Syum90 (talk) 15:51, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

User:Ajraddatz Please see Recent changes on Greek wikivoyage. el:voy:user:‎Πάρασκευάς Παπαδόπουλος, el:voy:user:‎Αγία Νάπα, and el:voy:user:Θεσσαλονικάρα are some of the sockpuppets of el:voy:user:Χρήστος Παοκάρα who has been blocked. He is a child-vandal well known in other projects. For an instance take a look at commons:User:Πρώτη_Σερρών. All the I.P. range of this user should be blocked. There is no alternative solution --Gobbler (talk) 14:13, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

This page is for asking help to "Meta sysops&crats" not Stewards/GS' assistant. Please visit SRM. — regards, Revi 14:27, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
I'm at the airport right now. I can deal with this in an hour or so, so if someone else can move this to the appropriate page and handle it that would be appreciated. Ajraddatz (talk) 14:31, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. I have no time to move my request in the appropriate page. Sorry for the inconvenience --Gobbler (talk) 14:37, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Repeatedly changing multiple languages of zh:太古城's English name from "Taikoo Shing" to the non-existent "Taikoo City", as well as other vandals in the rest of the articles; some isolated vandals to other pages of some of the wikis can also be found --Moonian (talk) 04:37, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Χρήστος Παοκάρα

He is active on Greek Wikipedia, Greek Wikivoyage, and Wikimedia Commons, but also on Wikidata and other Wikipedias (English, German) with few edits. He has become particularly persistent over the past months in Greek Wikivoyage.

Known accounts

He also edits from a wide range of IPv4 addresses. The latter are


The user is reported being a child. He is concerned exclusively with Greek topics. New articles on el:voy are grammatically incorrect and often nonsense. Hi has the annoying habit of falsifying statistical items [1], and making wrong links like these:

[[New York|Afghanistan]] - [[Rome|Pakistan]]

He makes weird requests for deletion el:voy:Χρήστης:-revi and repeatedly starts a page offering himself for adminship and getting support from his sockpuppets. As soon as one sock is discovered, it is abandoned and a new one is created. --Gobbler (talk) 00:18, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

I've locked the above accounts. Seems to be also active at el.wikipedia and commons.wikimedia. I've checked and couldn't find more accounts left. However if you have a list of the most recent socks (which have editted less than three months ago) we could investigate further. —MarcoAurelio 12:03, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
Great! Unfortunately he has been editing Greek vikivoyage and Greek WP with I.P. xwiki-contribsxwiki-date (alt)STIP infoWHOISrobtexgblockglistabuselogipchecker xwiki-contribsxwiki-date (alt)STIP infoWHOISrobtexgblockglistabuselogipchecker since yesterday. Check please xwiki-contribsxwiki-date (alt)STIP infoWHOISrobtexgblockglistabuselogipchecker. It may be the same person. Thanks --Gobbler (talk) 15:13, 2 July 2016 (UTC). As you can see, his edits on el:voy were not reverted. There are few contributors there. I think rangeblocking locally the whole ISP is not such a bad idea. --Gobbler (talk) 16:17, 2 July 2016 (UTC)


Hi. Here's the newest sockpuppet of previously global banned user Χρήστος Παοκάρα [stalktoy] – [cross-wiki edits]. Please have a quick look at this SPI and see what you think should be done. --Gobbler (talk) 16:44, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

cross-wiki ip

Hello. has added texts in japanese since June 13 on articles about television in various versions of WP (see here). Even if it cancels it immediately, this seems problematic for pages' history. He was asked about it but did not answer and continued, is currently blocked on fr.wp. Thanks in advance. --——d—n—f (talk) 09:21, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

I agree with you, and I would add, now the vandal of this guy in hak Wikipedia become serious. Please take a look at recent changes there, all are his vandal. I think we should at least lock him in hak Wikipedia, and set "hak:Khiûn-ki Thi-fông" and "hak:2016-ngièn‎" semi-protected (there is no local admin in hak wp). btw, please revert his vandal in es Wikipedia (I cannot revert it because of the filter), thank you.-- 11:56, 6 August 2016 (UTC)
