2600:387:A:19:0:0:0:67 et al.

Hallmarks of a longtime vandal / article-count gamer (creating year stubs to push wikis past article-count milestones). Note that Luxotool is not showing the edits of which I speak (which seems a bit worrying). In particular:

have not, as I type this, yet been deleted by any local admins (although admins have been notified); they are the same kind of contentless year-stubs that regularly get deleted.

For the record, similar contributions by the same user to the following wikis have already been deleted:

As noted above, all of these cases involved the creation of pages merely to push the wiki past a milestone tracked at en:Wikipedia:Milestone statistics. Because the user was kind enough to report these milestones themselves, this suggests that they might not have made similar contributions to any other wikis, but it would be nice if someone could check using some other tool.

Finally, the following contributions to an admin-less wiki:

are totally useless entries where the "definitions" are merely identical to the words being defined; these would need to be deleted by a steward. - dcljr (talk) 02:35, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Vandalism on rueWiki

IP 46.211.115.5

Recreated the page rue:Гомосексуал with obscenities, that was once deleted (2017/05/12 by User:Holder) Please, pay attention, that from IP prefix 46.211 there are persistent massive vandal attacks since 5th of May. Wouldn't it be possible to block this prefix for unregistered users?--Igor Kercsa (talk) 16:32, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi, the range is too large to consider a block, instead of this I've deleted the page and protected the title for some time to avoid recreation. Syum90 (talk) 17:06, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Continued from 46.211.155.199

Next morning the same vandals created rue:Гомосексуали (it is plural from the previous)--Igor Kercsa (talk) 16:05, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

This page waits with the similar spam and other 11 pages for deletion in rue:Category:Сторінкы до швидкого змазаня

Many IP addresses on jbo and fo Wiktionaries

All pages created on 18 May 2017 (UTC) on the Lojban Wiktionary (which just pushed the wiki past 1,000 articles) need to be deleted, as they appear to be 275 copies of the page wikt:jbo:sum (named "sum1" through "sum275"). The relevant IP addresses (in reverse order by edit date) include:

Also, hundreds of highly questionable entries (for supposed variants of English, Danish, and other languages) on the Faroese Wiktionary (which also pushed that wiki past 1,000 articles today) have been created in the last week by many IPs, including two in the list above:

The Faroese entries are perhaps good-faith attempts to expand that wiki; I list them here with the other, more obvious (Lojban) case of vandalism because they share some IP addresses and the characteristics of pushing the wiki to a milestone with many edits clearly by the same user using a rotating list of IP addresses. Also, note that I haven't checked to see what other wikis these IPs have recently edited (obviously, interested parties can do that with the provided links). - dcljr (talk) 08:50, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

The Lojban entries have been deleted. At least some of the Faroese enries have also been deleted. Thanks.
Now, a bunch of entries similar to the Lojban ones have been created on the (adminless) Greenlandic Wiktionary by:

The Greenlandic Wiktionary contributions have been deleted. - dcljr (talk) 01:32, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

MasonDecker217

These IP edits at the Korean Wikiquote occurred 2 minutes after MasonDecker217 first visited that wiki (23 May 2017 00:31 UTC), and then that milestone and other recent ones (including those discussed in the section immediately above this one) was announced at Wikimedia News by that user.

I believe this is a known longtime cross-wiki vandal (IP "162.196.142.177" listed under "24 Oct 2016"), so the contributions can be deleted on sight? If so, please delete the ones linked to in this comment and in the previous section. - dcljr (talk) 02:12, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

And now MasonDecker217 has pushed the Hawaiian Wikipedia past 2,000 (again). Are these legit Hawaiian articles? I don't know... (BTW, the Korean Wikiquote pages have been deleted by a local admin.) Can I get someone to reply on this page regarding whether this is actually a longtime vandal? - dcljr (talk) 01:29, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
HELLO?? - dcljr (talk) 07:11, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for noting this. I locked the account and will go through the contributions to delete them. --MF-W 14:28, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Almost certainly the same user, at 11 more IP addresses (reverse chronological order, per NewPages):

…this time pushing the Samoan Wikipedia past 1K, with a mixture of "number stubs" (I wasn't aware that the Roman numeral "X" could stand for literally hundreds of different numbers!) and stubs for American food companies (just like the contributions to, I think, the Hawaiian Wikipedia, mentioned immediately above). - dcljr (talk) 02:20, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

@MF-Warburg: Could you please handle this request (since no one else seems to be monitoring this page)? In the future I will post this kind of stuff somewhere else (SRM, I assume). Someone (preferably an active steward) needs to finally deprecate this page (per these two discussions), and update the instructions on pages like SR and SRM (etc.) to reflect the change. - dcljr (talk) 21:20, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
Done. --MF-W 17:58, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
(Meaning some of the smwiki deletions have been done. :) Thanks. I assume you just haven't gotten to all of the deletions you're going to do? Because there are about 80 pages left… - dcljr (talk) 06:56, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
Uuugh so many pages. The rest is now deleted as well, except no. 100-109 which were edited by a local user. --MF-W 09:56, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Евгенгег

  • Евгенгег (talk · contribs · page moves · block user · block log) created a bunch of disruptive translations, which can be seen even without knowledge of Russian. Generally there are a lot of people on Meta and on Translatewiki which use autosuggest from Translate extension to abuse it, it is I guess the case with this one. stjn (WMF) [Saint Johann] 16:18, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
