My name is FriyMan and I am kind of a jack of all trades. I can review for GA, I can fight Vandals, I can write articles, but that doesn't essentially mean I am good in any of those things. Currently, I am enjoying GA reviews, fixing refs the most literally nothing. My goal on Wikipedia is to become checkuser and track each and every one of you make a bot to do boring work for me.

{{AIV|i}} Pictogram voting wait orange.svg Insufficient recent activity to warrant a block. {{UAA|d}} Being discussed with the user. {{RFPP|pd}} Pending-changes protected
{{AIV|f}} Pictogram voting wait red.svg No vandalism since final warning. Re-report if this user resumes vandalising. {{UAA|dc}} Being discussed with the user, since they have edited constructively. {{RFPP|p}} Fully protected
{{AIV|ow}} Stalewarning.svg Stale warning. {{UAA|v}} User has vandalized. {{RFPP|m}} Move protected

{{AIV|3rr}} Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:ANEW. {{UAA|csd}} User has created a page which has been deleted (or is tagged for deletion) per one or more speedy deletion criteria. {{RFPP|tp}} Template protected
{{AIV|a}} Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:ANI. {{UAA|rc}} User has requested a username change. {{RFPP|ec}} Extended confirmed protected
{{AIV|u}} Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:UAA. {{UAA|ch}} User has changed their username. {{RFPP|do}} Done
{{AIV|r}} Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:RPP. {{UAA|p}} Problem: This account does not exist or may be hidden. {{RFPP|no}} Not done
{{AIV|sp}} Pictogram voting move light green.png This noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only. Consider taking this report to WP:SPI. {{UAA|s}} Stale: This account has not been used in the last 2–3 weeks. {{RFPP|d}} Declined
{{AIV|in}} Pictogram voting comment.png Note: IP addresses are generally not blocked indefinitely. Please see the blocking policy for more information. {{UAA|rn}} Not a violation of the username policy. Stage names and pen names are permitted except when they imply that the editor is a specific living person they are not. Consider filing a report at the conflict of interest noticeboard. {{RFPP|pf}} Declined – No changes to the current protection level are required at this point in time.
{{AIV|s}} Pictogram voting comment.png Appears to be a shared IP address, used by multiple users. {{UAA|no}} Not a blatant violation of the username policy. {{RFPP|nea}} Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection.
{{AIV|4im}} Pictogram voting oppose.svg User has been inappropriately warned. 4im warnings are appropriate for severe vandalism and defamation only. {{UAA|e}} Not a blatant violation of the username policy, but it's worth keeping an eye on their edits. {{RFPP|co}} Declined – Likely collateral damage as one or several users who are making improvements would be affected by the requested protection.
{{AIV|c}} Pictogram voting oppose.svg Content dispute. Consider dispute resolution. {{UAA|ci}} Not a blatant violation of the username policy.

{{AIV|np}} Pictogram voting oppose.svg Blocks are preventative, not intended to be used as punishment. {{UAA|np}} Not a blatant violation of the username policy. For a username to be blatantly promotional, there must be a link between the username and the user's edits. Consider re-reporting if a connection becomes clear through the user's edits. {{RFPP|nhr}} Declined – This template is not used widely enough to be considered a high-risk template.
{{AIV|nv}} Pictogram voting oppose.svg Edits are not vandalism. Please ensure recent edits constitute vandalism before re-reporting. {{UAA|su}} Not a blatant violation of the username policy. Usernames which only imply shared use are not serious enough to warrant being blocked immediately. {{RFPP|dr}} Declined – Content dispute. Please use the article's talk page or other forms of dispute resolution.
{{AIV|d}} Pictogram voting delete.svg Page deleted. {{UAA|fp}} False positive: Username is not a blatant violation of the username policy. {{RFPP|ut}} Declined – User talk pages are not protected except in response to severe or continued vandalism.
