This is exactly the right place for your request. I deleted both pages as there was nothing but the vandalism in the page histories. Your user page also received an indefinite semi-protection for page creation (i.e. you can create a page if you want one, but IP vandals and new accounts cannot). I do not think we should do the same with your user talk page as there may be legitimate situations where this could be obstructive. —MisterSynergy (talk) 23:15, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

User:Veillg1

Hi,

Here an unusual case for you to lean on: Veillg1 (talkcontribslogs). Clearly this user is mostly of good will and equally clearly he mostly doesn't understand Wikidata.

For years now, this user adds incorrect labels and descriptions on item about lakes and watercourses of Canada with a very wide range of mistakes : description not the right length (sometimes too long, sometimes too short), not in the right langage, not the right punctation, just plain mistake or a mix-up of the above. Multiples messages and warnings have been left, on his talk page or on Wikidata talk:WikiProject Canada by multiples users (mainly by Fralambert and me). The worst part is that he is not listening other users' feedbacks and he keep going, improving some points but still making incorrect edits.

He has been blocked in 2017 (log) but in the end, it didn't change much (TBH, it was a bit better). Not sure if a new block will change anything (or is even appropriate, we are in a grey area of vandalism). When I talked about it on the Wikidata Telegram group some months ago, someone suggest to create an abuse-filter specific to this user to prevent him to change label and description (all together, or with some more elegant regex preventing him to add description starting with an uppercase, an article or finishing by a ponctuation), would it be doable and appropriate?

Anyway, I trust you and let you decide how to deal with this case.

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 12:32, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

VIGNERON has done de good summary of the problem. A another problem that VIGNERON is that he add description via Google Translate in multiple languages that often he can't even understand (see: User talk:Veillg1#Warning). While I can correct French and English, I don't have the knowledge the correct the other languages. --Fralambert (talk) 14:51, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
Je lui ai laissé un message sur sa page de discussion avec un ultimatum. Je ne crois pas qu'il y ait beaucoup de choix qui s'offrent à nous dans cette situation. Pamputt (talk) 07:06, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
@Fralambert: indeed, most of his edits should be checked (see Special:Diff/679218537 for one of the weirdest example).
Merci Pamputt. Comme je le disais (sauf si il y a changement d'attitude), je vois deux choix : blocage habituel (à voir la durée) ou solution plus inhabituelle, un filtre anti-abus spécifique à cet utilisateur (suggérée par Abián sur Telegram). La première solution me paraît un peu disproportionnée (ce n'est pas complètement un vandale malintentionné, plutôt un contributeur perdu sur Wikidata). Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 14:56, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
Le filtre est en effet une idée intéressante. Par contre, je n'ai absolument aucune idée sur la façon de procéder. Tu connais quelqu'un qui peut aider ? Pamputt (talk) 10:02, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Gracias Abián. Pamputt (talk) 13:49, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
@Abián: From I understand about your filter. Veillg1 is not allow anymore to modify label, description and aliases in any language. Would it be possible to allow him to modify these fiels only in French (and English). These both languages are languages that (s)he knows. Pamputt (talk) 13:52, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

You cannot make a sitelink to amalekites . You cannot makw a sitelink to amalek (I Think its a systemerror and should be change generally .)

Special:Contributions/Moebeus

@Moebeus: Special:Contributions/Moebeus continually makes counterproductive and unnecessary changes and nuances that kind of foul up otherwise correct data on song information. For instance, the user adds musical composition as an instance of to entries for songs when it's entirely unnecessary to do so. Every song has musical composition as a component of it; it is implied by song. As another example, the user also adds bizarre descriptions such as "music track with vocals" instead of the much more succinct "song" to entries for songs. - 108.71.133.201 15:01, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

User:FogueraC

The above user has been making modifications to the item Q32641 without trying to find a consensus first. I find that behaviour unethical, and in bad faith, given that it is a topic that we have been debating for some time and still is. I request that all the edits that he did to the item lately are reverted and that he is asked to collaborate in finding first a solution that can be considered as NPOV. If he fails to comply, please ban him. --Micru (talk) 11:32, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

In fact, who started editing Valencian (Q32641) ignoring the consensus was Micru: [7]. I asked for mediation two times (one and two) in this page. And my editions are supported by the sources. The complete list of sources (including the Micru's ones) is the following:
Therefore, "dialectal variety of the Catalan language spoken in the Valencian Community" is the proposed description that best fits the sources. --Foguera (talk) 13:25, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
Those sources reflect the POV of the speakers of Catalonia, they do not reflect the view that the regulatory body of the language itself, which says that Valencian is a variety of the "Romance language spoken in the Valencian Community, as well as in Catalonia, the Balearic Islands, the French department of the Eastern Pyrenees, the Principality of Andorra, the eastern part of Aragon and the Sardinian city of Alghero, places where the name is called of Catalan."--Micru (talk) 23:48, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

User:AliciaFagervingWMSE-bot

I ran into some questionable edits by this bot today and reported them on the operator's talk page. However, I noticed that the operator is not very responsive there and, in fact, the last time she responded to a problem report was only after the bot was blocked to attract her attention. Users have reported six other issues since then that don't appear to have been responded to or acted on. It's understandable that bot behavior has problems that need to be ironed out, but bot operators are supposed to respond to problem reports and clean up after their bots (WD:BOT).

Edits performed by User Ezzex

Can anyone please have a look and revert at least todays edits by this user. The purpose is stated by the user at the Norwegian wikidata discussion page. Breg Pmt (talk) 18:07, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Raw GOOGLE translation from Norwegian to english I am to undergo musicians on wikidata and constantly notice that there is a lot of "stuff" under "occupation". In addition to small and insignificant things, there are always musicians there. Why? When all the other elements are derived from the musician. Eg. that he or she is a singer, guitarist, songwriter - and musician (most of the butter). In addition, you often see things like autobiography and other rarities (hear all short activities at home in an info box)? Besides, I think this part is more like a resume than on a field where it is normal to enter his or her employment. It is usually 1-3 things: eg guitarist and singer. If the person has had a little supporting role on film, or a guest performance in a TV series, then it is not necessary to post an actor. (Most often, they are also not categorized under this). This can also be mentioned in the article.

Just about the same happens during the "genre" field in movies and the TV template. There are a lot of genres that are completely meaningless or unusual in Norway. I do not use I consequence info from wikidata when it comes to movies and TV shows. In Norway, for example. no genre called big movie, or teenage comedy. And what about the actor, film actor, TV actor and voice actor ?? It does work well with the actor and then one gets rather elaborated in the article what cedancers have participated in of film and television. The same goes for directors, television director, theater directors and film directors. I consistently remove such things and keep the director. It does not seem like it is possible to come to some common rules on wikidata. What can be done to make this happen for the future?

My suggestion: Drop movie actor, television actor, theater actor, voice actor, movie director, theater director, television director, autobiography and genres such as feature film, teenage comedy, treasure hunt movie, heist movie, teen movie, Christmas movie, etc --Ezzex (talk) 10: 34, 12 February 2019 (UTC) @Ezzex: bidragene på wikidata er gjort av brukere fra over 150 wikier og brukere som ikke redigerer på Wikipedia i det hele.

Earlier we had one portal for the two states, but now they have been split into two different portals for a clearer scope. All the below-listed pages are redirects from moves.

93.182.105.40

Please check 93.182.105.40 (talkcontribslogs) edits, ideally someone with Turkish knowledge. It seems like political vandalism to me.--Jklamo (talk) 09:31, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

@HakanIST: could you have a look? Pamputt (talk) 12:01, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
All of them were vandalism, I've reverted them. Thanks for the ping.-- Hakan·IST 12:07, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Requesting protection for Q58100203

Requesting protection for Jacob Wohl(Q58100203) and a block for Special:Contributions/99.59.130.44. The IP kept removing sourced statements and changing descriptions. The WP article received a lot of traffic today due to the subject being permabanned from Twitter. A protection, probably long-term, is needed. Thanks. Tsumikiria (talk) 22:48, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

I semi-protected the item for a week. I see several IPs involved, but I'm not sure it's worth blocking them. Bovlb (talk) 03:57, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

User:ListeriaBot

Hello.User:ListeriaBot edits fill out the page Special:RecentChanges as a human user.Please act.Thanks --David (talk) 16:33, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

It has a bot flag, so that I am not sure what is happening.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:55, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
@Magnus Manske: can you fix this? When using the API you have to make sure to set the bot flag or it won't actually flag edits as bot. --Rschen7754 01:56, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
MediaWiki API used to allow bot flag on edits, and ignore it if the user is not a bot. Something changed recently, blocking the edit when the user is not a bot but using bot flag. Since my bot is editing on many wikis, I had no choice to remove the bot flag globally, and add it for wikis on a whitelist. Since I don't really know which wikis gave it a bot flag, I have to wait for people to start screaming... I have added wikidata to the whitelist now, bot flag should return soon-ish (next hour or so). --Magnus Manske (talk) 11:22, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
You can see that on Special:CentralAuth/ListeriaBot. Mbch331 (talk) 08:48, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

OTRS mail

Someone with access to Wikidata queue, please check this mail and the mentioned talk pages (I was the one who deleted them after they were tagged). Answer from someone else would be appreciated. Thanks! Bencemac (talk) 12:02, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

I've answered the user. I don't see any reason as to why those talk pages should exist (it looked like link spam to me), so I've asked the user to start a discussion on this page if he has a good reason for those links to be on the talk page instead of in the item itself. Mbch331 (talk) 08:34, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much! Bencemac (talk) 15:20, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Some scammer is trying to spread their phone numbers

Someone has been adding their phone numbers to the descriptions of items of various big technology companies. Googling it brings up various sites where the numbers are described as belonging to scammers. They seem to be most persistent on McAfee, LLC (Q267313) but also other tech companies and even similarly named items like Norton (Q502984) and Norton (Q3878583). Semiprotecting them all for a while would be great.

The IPs vary, some are based in the US, some in India, so I assume they use proxies. Found so far:

--Kam Solusar (talk) 02:48, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

This looks like a typical technical support scam (Q16738649). My preferred solution to this would be an abuse filter rather than semiprotection.--Jasper Deng (talk) 04:58, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
I cleared out another batch this morning and blocked 106.219.232.184 (talkcontribslogs). I also added Special:AbuseFilter/115 to prevent such edits. Bovlb (talk) 17:43, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
@Bovlb:: seems this one slipped through the filter today: David986783844 (talkcontribslogs). --Kam Solusar (talk) 18:12, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
✓ Done--Ymblanter (talk) 19:57, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
@Kam Solusar: Thanks. I have broadened the filter to apply to this case. Bovlb (talk) 17:37, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Also, I note that three IP addresses were auto-blocked by the filter shortly beforehand. This was the first time that I've seen a registered user perpetrate the spam. Bovlb (talk) 17:44, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Another five users have been blocked by the filter. All were scammers. They're obviously probing to see what they can get away with. Bovlb (talk) 02:40, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
