IP block

Hi, you recently blocked and what appears to be IP hopping on the same article/talk page for the same changes for an IP with a matching ASN has arisen from IP As the prior block referenced an Arbcom action which I am unaware of, rather than an SPI case, I am uncertain where to report this activity. It seems incredibly unlikely not to be IP hopping considering the ASN and context, yet I was criticised by Mathglot for saying anything about the likely match without first creating an SPI case. Naturally, considering the work in starting SPI cases every time an IP hopper changes address would end up with us not bothering to get any of them blocked. Equally obvious is that if the 'Arbcom aware' case applies, then any related edits from IPs or socks should be removed. Advice on how best to proceed appreciated!

As a courtesy I have left a note on the IP talk page. Thanks -- (talk) 19:54, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi, , just to be clear: I wasn't criticizing you, more the opposite. If you look again, I said, "You can state a good-faith reservation about the comment (as you did above)." (diff). I also acknowledged that you were not the one that removed IP's comment in the first place. Clearly, if that IP is a sock, the comment may be removed per TPO, but until that has been established, WP:AGF applies, in my opinion. Mathglot (talk) 21:44, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay in responding to this. I did block someone, but it was not referencing an Arbcom action. ANI is fine as a place to request blocks for any form of block evasion, as it will process there way faster. Also, just to clarify, checkuser blocks can be made for multiple reasons, not just because a block is involved. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 18:36, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

ARBCOM procedural question

Hello Amanda,

Are archived talk pages presentable at ARBCOM, or are diffs mandatory? François Robere (talk) 18:45, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

You can link to any discussion that has been made in the past. The only thing that is prohibited is trying to make a personal statement only (and not show anything about the case) with a link. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 19:00, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
So if I provide a relevant a thread and want to highlight a particular comment within it, I can do it with a quote or time stamp instead of a diff? François Robere (talk) 20:16, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
My advice is that a diff would be the best to show it, as reading a whole discussion on top of everything else is a lot for an Arb. Remember this is not the evidence phase. If you do quote someone, you do need to attach a diff. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 04:22, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

New pages reviewer

Hi there Amanda,

I can understand why you rejected my application for NPR perms, but I just wanted to know what sort of things I can be doing to get my application accepted. You mentioned CSDs and draft space editing - what else is there to give me the right experience for being an NPR? It would be great to get your thoughts, as I'm hoping to reapply once I pass the 3-month milestone. Thanks for your help (and consideration) - OliverEastwood talk 23:39, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Normally I write a long paragraph explaining why, but I'm just not having the energy to do that tonight. Basically anything that shows me you 1) Have a knowledge of Wikipedia's inclusion policies and 2) shows you are applying them properly. Whatever you do end up doing, there needs to be a significant quantity of. I would normally recommend at least 50 CSDs or AFC reviews, but 100 is closer to my comfort zone to granting it fully without a trial. It may be also useful to go back through the approved applicants and see what they have to help answer this question. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 05:07, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Holocaust in Poland

Hi, I have some fresh idea on how to deal with the conflicts like the one that is currently being discussed. If you grant me a word extension, I can propose it.--Paul Siebert (talk) 17:11, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

May I be granted a word limit extension to respond to the above? François Robere (talk) 10:28, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – June 2019

News and updates for administrators from the past month (May 2019).

  Administrator changes

  CheckUser changes


  Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC seeks to clarify whether WP:OUTING should include information on just the English Wikipedia or any Wikimedia project.
  • An RfC on WT:RfA concluded that Requests for adminship and bureaucratship are discussions seeking to build consensus.
  • An RfC proposal to make the templates for discussion (TfD) process more like the requested moves (RM) process, i.e. "as a clearinghouse of template discussions", was closed as successful.

  Technical news

  • The CSD feature of Twinkle now allows admins to notify page creators of deletion if the page had not been tagged. The default behavior matches that of tagging notifications, and replaces the ability to open the user talk page upon deletion. You can customize which criteria receive notifications in your Twinkle preferences: look for Notify page creator when deleting under these criteria.
  • Twinkle's d-batch (batch delete) feature now supports deleting subpages (and related redirects and talk pages) of each page. The pages will be listed first but use with caution! The und-batch (batch undelete) option can now also restore talk pages.

Bot is making typos

Hi, just wanted to point you to this WP:UAA/BOT edit, in which your bot made a couple of typos, "similiar charecters" for "similar characters". Nyttend (talk) 19:01, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
