Просьба о бессрочной блокировке[edit]

Заблокируйте пожалуйста мою учётку бессрочно. Если в течении 24 часов она не будет забанена, то я начну портить викиданные. Заранее благодарен. С наилучшими пожеланиями. --Malbakov Korkem Shamshievih (talk) 02:22, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Вот когда начнёте поpтить, тогда и заблокируем.--Ymblanter (talk) 05:38, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

С таких заяв хочется предложить дать админам ВД право глобальной блокировки. Причём без права замены на локальную. Чисто чтобы неповадно было...Фил Вечеровский (talk) 18:03, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

На каждый чих не наздравствуешься. Мало ли кому что придёт в голову. Хочется человеку получить бессрочку за бандализм - флаг в руки.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:14, 22 October 2014 (UTC)


I would like to see Lockal blocked from his bot-like adding EOL-pages until such a time as there is some kind of agreement. See his talk page, - Brya (talk) 10:58, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Merge properties[edit]

Please merge invalid ID (P1572) with first performance (P1191), I didn't realize it was already there.--Micru (talk) 20:44, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

We can't merge properties. We corrected all items using P:1572 then i deleted it.--Harmonia Amanda (talk) 21:21, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

MediaWiki edit[edit]

MediaWiki talk:Searchmenu-new/el. Thanks. :-) --geraki talk 15:36, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Move request for ESADA to European Sleep Apnea Database[edit]

Please move to name European Sleep Apnea Database, as that correlates to page en:European Sleep Apnea Database.

Thank you,

Cirt (talk) 21:31, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

I think I've fixed it, but a double check to make sure nothing in name of page refers to ESADA (but page could use addition of abbreviation as notation somewhere). Thanks, — Cirt (talk) 21:32, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Merge request for A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace[edit]

Please merge Q17399690 into Q1188699.

Thank you,

Cirt (talk) 03:14, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

I may have just merged it in a non-admin action but would please appreciate a check to make sure I did it correctly. — Cirt (talk) 03:15, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Please add piwiki टेक्सास to Texas (Q1439). It is curious that out of 50 states this is the only one that is protected. 08:12, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Global pushing?[edit]

Multiproject specialist is needed to review strange activity: Javad Ramezani (Q18195566) and linked Wikipedia articles. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 20:50, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

@Ivan A. Krestinin: I don't speak any major languages in English, but I followed the identifier links, which lead to 404 errors. All of them have been removed, I also removed the item's "topic's main category" and "Commons category" properties, as those were also invalid. --AmaryllisGardener talk 22:19, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
This looks like a case of aggressive self-promotion and spam. First the user attacked the English Wikipedia with many sockpuppets, then he started spamming other Wikipedias. I have requested deletions on the following pages:
Here are the involved users on Wikidata:
Due to the seriousness and persistence of the abuse, I have blocked User:جواد رمضانی شوراب indefinitely. Mushroom (talk) 00:15, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Mushroom for the in-depth research on the issue. --AmaryllisGardener talk 00:38, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Noting that I locked the account globally with my steward hat. --Rschen7754 01:29, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

The spamming hasn't stopped:

--Kolja21 (talk) 09:15, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Most of the vandalism comes from the IP range (Shatel DSL Network in Iran), it is a public network so blocking it for a long time is not a good idea. I have blocked anonymous edits from the range for 24 hours, let's see what happens. I have also reported the vandalism on Meta and requested a global title block. Meanwhile, the Bulgarian, Catalan and Turkish Wikipedia have not yet deleted the articles, and new Spanish, Hindi, and Japanese ones have popped up. Mushroom (talk) 10:42, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
@Mushroom: These (at least all the ones listed here, excepting two) can all be covered by Would you mind it if I replaced your /16 block with that? The /19 would cover to Deng (talk) 17:17, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
@Jasper Deng: Sure, fine by me. Mushroom (talk) 21:37, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Please indef soft block[edit]

These are the IPs of WMFLabs, and a lot of log-out bot are or were running under these IPs (See Special:Contributions/, with contribsrange tool enabled). bugzilla:72384 also make a lot of Widar edits under these IPs, before the patch deployed.--GZWDer (talk) 12:10, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Why should we block good edits? Vogone (talk) 12:11, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
No. Please don't. 10.68 are private IPs. (i.e., everything gets broken when you block it). Well, not really. It will prevent many other people from editing. Once, when such an IP was gblocked lots of people were blocked from editing due to that. --Glaisher (talk) 12:13, 29 October 2014 (UTC) is actually a dedicated range for the eqiad labs realm so the notion 'it will prevent many other people from editing' is incorrect unless you edit logged out from labs in a way it can only communicate via the subnet. John F. Lewis (talk) 12:28, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
@John F. Lewis: User:Glaisher probably means XFF. If such an IP is in the XFF of a user, that user gets blocked. If carrier-grade NAT is used in one form or another, this is a pretty good possibility.--Jasper Deng (talk) 17:13, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
That would not happen here. The blocks Glaisher is referring to were on Varnish caches' private IPs. These would match XFF as all requests are proxied via Varnish but none are proxied via labs. John F. Lewis (talk) 19:42, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
I'm also reticent to block such IP range.
It could mean unattributed edits become lots edits, and create more bot malfunctioning and lost for the project than to restrict such edits to logged out users.
--Dereckson (talk) 20:49, 29 October 2014 (UTC)


thank to block this ip : (talkcontribslogs) to he find his talk page Tuilindo (talk) 12:25, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

It seems that it stops. I think there is no need to be blocked.--Nikosguard talk 10:35, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
No, (talkcontribslogs) don't stop. Just for exemple : label for Teutsch (surname) (Q1318812) (modified by on 30 October 2014) should be Teutsch with surname/nom de famille/cognome... in description Tuilindo (talk) 11:07, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
