username(s), IP address

Just a vandal who has already been blocked. The username is not clearly offensive, but translation websites don't seem to understand it. So better be safe than sorry and change it I think. (or find someone who can read Korean) --Alexis Jazz (talk) 02:01, 1 March 2018 (UTC) User seems to be a sock. More socks:[]

IPs on kywiki

Dealing with this here, as this is almost certainly Decker yet again trying to get around his global block(s). For reference, see the IPs listed under #Many IPs on myvwiki, below.

These contributions have now been deleted and all but the first IP blocked. - dcljr (talk) 02:11, 3 March 2018 (UTC)[]
Can someone take a look at BreakBreak1 [stalktoy] – [cross-wiki edits] and 2600:387:A:9:0:0:0:A3 xwiki-contribsxwiki-date (alt)STIP infoWHOISrobtexgblockglistabuselogipchecker please? This almost certainly looks like Decker again looking at the edits and the IP being used (has used similiar ones from 2600:387:A range, see above and archives of this page). Accounts has been indefblocked on atleast two projects now and the account and IP started mass creating almost empty articles on the Malagasy Wikipedia. --Wiki13 talk 14:04, 5 March 2018 (UTC)[]
PS: I have let a global sysop nuke the edits of the account and the IP. A lock for the account is still needed, as well as longer block for the IP/range of the IP. --Wiki13 talk 14:41, 5 March 2018 (UTC)[]
BreakBreak locked by Matiia. I’ve extended the block for a month. Green Giant (talk) 15:14, 5 March 2018 (UTC)[]

The IP has been harassing and vandalizing on Scots Wikipedia --Esteban16 (talk) 22:27, 2 March 2018 (UTC)[]

The IP has an extensive block history of vandalism. Blocked for 3 months (at least). --Bsadowski1 (talk) 22:29, 2 March 2018 (UTC)[]
This IP belonged to a children services group in the UK - fostering, schools, academies, residential homes - who care for children with complex needs. It is currently blocked (a school block) for two years on until June 2019. --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 20:40, 6 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Status:    Done

Hello. This user is doing cross-wiki vandalism in several Wikimedia projects, by adding the word "text" everywhere, like this or that. I have checked all the edits. --NicoScribe (talk) 16:59, 10 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Anti-Chinese vandal

My guess is that s/he became unhappy with some Chinese consumer electronics and started to attack the country, in the last two instances using w:Joe job. Topics: China (中文), flag of the United States. If warranted, I can submit more evidence that all four accounts represent the same person. Do not know his/her IP range because never saw this person editing as an IP; but if the range is narrow enough then it possibly should be globally soft-blocked. --Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:36, 13 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Vandalism on Estonian Wikipedia [1] --Esteban16 (talk) 00:59, 14 March 2018 (UTC)[]

If it is local, can this be handled locally? ET Wiki has a healthy amount of active Ops? --Jyothis (talk) 01:02, 14 March 2018 (UTC)[]

I have no idea how to report it locally, that's why I'm here. The user is still vandalizing. Esteban16 (talk) 01:10, 14 March 2018 (UTC)[]
Already blocked. Esteban16 (talk) 02:47, 14 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Bell Canada toroon4664w vandal

This cross-wiki vandal, who geolocates to Toronto, has a host name beginning toroon4664w and hops IPs in the ranges,, and, was range blocked on for one month from 13 February and also later globally range blocked until 00:00 14 March due to cross-wiki vandalism. Five minutes after the global blocks expired at 00.00, the vandal ran amok on and I have reinstated range blocks on, increasing these to two months. The vandal has taken their activities cross-wiki to 12 16 wikis. I recommend global blocks of at least one month for ranges,, and to protect all wikis. Pinging @NicoScribe, MarcoAurelio, and RadiX: who have previously had dealings with this vandal. --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 03:04, 14 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Hello @Malcolmxl5: thanks. At the moment, the 339 edits (in 16 projects) of have been canceled (except in talk pages). --NicoScribe (talk) 12:05, 14 March 2018 (UTC)[]
I've blocked the ranges given by Malcolmxl5 for three months. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:30, 14 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Looks like our good friend Decker again. Currently only at astwiki (still posting there as I type this), but given past behavior may be at other wikis soon. - dcljr (talk) 23:28, 15 March 2018 (UTC)[]


Use of alternative accounts to bypass local blocks at Chinese & Japanese Wikipedia. Request a global lock as he also uses alternative accounts at the Korean Wikipedia, though not spotted. --1233 | Questions?| This message is left by him at 13:43, 24 March 2018 (UTC)[]

@1233: I think this request should be on Steward requests/Global --Alaa :)..! 14:01, 24 March 2018 (UTC)[]

Yeah... I will now re-request it then.--1233 | Questions?| This message is left by him at 14:22, 24 March 2018 (UTC)[]

He continues to perform vandal activities. vandalingAs there is no manager in the Korean wikitionary, it is necessary to request blocking of the IP user concerned. If I put the request in wrong place, please move this request. --한림 (talk) 01:53, 25 March 2018 (UTC)[]
