Bidhan Singh vandalizerEdit

Looks like the filters didn't work, as Bidhan Singh is back causing disruption. I guess I'm going to have to accept it. Wikipedia simply can't stop the guy :( GoodDay (talk) 16:48, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Zzuuzz, Does the edit filter not work on talk pages ? this is third such edit on talk page in 3 days. [1] --DBigXray 14:55, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
You are indeed currently correct, and I cordially refer you at this time to my ANI posts on the topic. Feel free to hassle me further, however. -- zzuuzz (talk) 16:49, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
All right, I will continue keeping an eye on these talk pages. What is the hit count on the Bidhan Singh filter so far? --DBigXray 17:06, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
We are at 12, with regular stuff plus this template possibly a newer target. -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:28, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
OK, you won't see that in that form again. And thus we've moved forward to the latest edits. -- zzuuzz (talk) 14:59, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
you won't see that in that form again.. meaning in the form that includes his name ? . Do we already have an LTA page on this ? is he eligible for one ? (I believe he does) --DBigXray 15:07, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
Who knows what they'll do next. I'm not persuaded about an LTA page, however it may be beneficial to make some notes at the SPI, especially, but not exclusively, anything before this month. -- zzuuzz (talk) 15:11, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

As you can see, Bidhan Singh isn't going to stop. Perhaps, Wikimedia needs to step in. GoodDay (talk) 04:23, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

  Moved from WP:AIV

(User:Oshwah lets discuss further on User_talk:Zzuuzz since this entry was going to be removed by AIV bot.)

  Warned user. The IP user's edits seem to be editing tests or good faith attempts to edit or see what can be edited. Left a warning accordingly. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 06:24, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
it is a Dynamic IP of a narcissist WP:LTA vandal, whose self promotional campaign has been checked by edit filters (thanks to Zzuuzz), hence he is resorting to such nonsensical disruptive, edits. For pages that are regularly vandalized, I also seek page protection e.e. diff, diff. Based on what I have seen recently, his IP is dynamic, but he continues on 10-15 disruptive edits, so IMHO it makes sense to block his IP which is why I had reported him at AIV, If admins like Zzuuzz and Oshwah feel that it is not worth blocking then I will save my efforts in future and let him continue his vandalism for the day. --DBigXray 07:12, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
User:Oshwah Just noting that the IP Special:Contributions/2405:205:A081:553:9122:1321:E028:67FC continues his efforts of "good faith attempts to edit" . While we discuss, if posting him at AIV makes sense. regards. --DBigXray 07:20, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
Ahh, this huge IP range-hopping tomfoolery again... Yeah, I've been trying to figure out a good way with dealing with this throughout the day today... unfortunately, there's no perfect option. The ranges are incredibly wide, the articles edited are many, and the issues are ongoing. I've blocked the IP above for evasion. I'm interested to see how quickly the edits hop from one IP and range to another... ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 07:25, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
yes, good call on blocking the IP, better late than never. you can also see thoughts of other page watchers at User_talk:GoodDay#Requested PP for 2 pages already on how he behaves. --DBigXray 07:32, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
@Oshwah: I'll generally insta-block a /64 for a day or so if it's within the last day or so (with good reason, although not entirely effective). There's at least two common ranges which are something like 2405:204:C000::/39 and 2405:205:A000::/39. And we're filtering with 58 and 478. It's a tricky one to nail down. I'm hoping this is just a final spurt before they get bored. -- zzuuzz (talk) 08:47, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
Zzuuzz - Thanks for the information. Yup, that's what I found when I looked into it and did some digging on the IP ranges involved; they're two very wide ranges that are both from the same ISP and geolocation, and (as you said) a tough situation to crack down on that doesn't have a silver bullet solution. I hope so, too... we'll find out one way or another. ;-) Thanks again for the input. Cheers - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 08:53, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
@Oshwah: Can't we not temporarily protect Indian Central Government related pages. He mostly vandalizes those pages. - Fylindfotberserk (talk) 09:40, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Fylindfotberserk - I've been applying them to the articles I saw while handling various issues from this IP range, but certainly not all of them. If there are any that aren't protected that need to be, file requests at WP:RFPP and I'll check them out. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:42, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

@Oshwah: OK I'll RPP articles as soon as I find any vandalism on them by this Bidhan Singh guy. I'll mention his "name" in the request as well. - Fylindfotberserk (talk) 09:50, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
Fylindfotberserk - Perfect. ;-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:54, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Yes Fylindfotberserk, and while filing a RFPP, also add a link to this thread, for other admins who are not aware this WP:LTA--DBigXray 10:01, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
DBigXray, Absolutely. - Fylindfotberserk (talk) 10:05, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

The key to it, is that the community is becoming more aware. GoodDay (talk) 13:30, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

GoodDay you should also report his IP (with a link to this discussion) at WP:AIV and request page protection, whenever you see him. --DBigXray 13:36, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
I just may. GoodDay (talk) 13:49, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

PUBG vandalismEdit

I think the time has come to put random additions of the word "pubg" [2] to be added in edit filter list against vandalism. your thoughts ? (refer PUBG)

It's a new one on me. I think we have a fortnite-type filter somewhere. Is it common though? -- zzuuzz (talk) 10:03, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
Not as common as Fortnite, AFAIK. Kids play Fortnite more than PUBG. Abelmoschus Esculentus (talkcontribs) 12:23, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Zzuzz, from the pages I watch, I have reverted 3 such additions, I am sure that they aren't only happening on pages I watch. DBigXray 06:26, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
AE, please see List of best-selling video games#List#6 with 50 million sales. Never heard about Fortnite nor is it in the list.--DBigXray 06:26, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Account was hackedEdit

Hi, I'm CaptainDanger25, I'm the user that reported the Sim12 accounts. The user you blocked Benedictfoos2 hacked my account just right now. He changed the password under MediaWiki and now I can't log back in. He was a user I had issues with years ago. I was wondering if you try to get it back under my control. Thanks! --2605:6000:A507:A300:59AA:B37C:7C87:D6EC (talk) 03:38, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Never mind I figured it out. Thanks anyway! --CaptainDanger25 (talk) 04:02, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

@CaptainDanger25: OK, drop me a line if there's any further trouble. I can't recover an account for you, but I can check it and block it, so we repeat the process you've already been through. Please make sure you have a strong unique password, which you can remember. See Wikipedia:User account security. -- zzuuzz (talk) 10:10, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
@Zzuuzz: I'll remember that next time, Thanks a lot. --CaptainDanger25 (talk) 16:10, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Blogspot spamEdit

I see you've blocked multiple blogspot spammers this morning; an account was just blocked for repeated addition of this link; not sure if it should be blacklisted also. Home Lander (talk) 18:42, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

I'll generally reserve blacklisting for sites which are repeatedly spammed. Not sure that's the case here. Also, different MO to the rest of today's spammers. -- zzuuzz (talk) 19:54, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Probable sockEdit

Hello. My Evlekis-detector started buzzing when Konigboom (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log) reverted a recent edit of mine, and I saw their contributions so far. Not 100% sure yet, though. Cheers, - Tom | Thomas.W talk 14:40, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

I don't think so. All things are possible, but I don't think so. -- zzuuzz (talk) 16:14, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
You could compare it to Special:Contributions/Hick Hick. I got the exact same vibes when this account showed up last summer, and kept an eye on it for a while, but then it stopped editing, only to resurface several months later, and get CU-blocked by Ponyo. - Tom | Thomas.W talk 19:39, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

NickBubbleBuddyEdit

I see that you blocked NickBubbleBuddy as a sock of Simulation12. That editor nominated Last Man Standing (season 7) for deletion and the article is currently at AfD. Should that AfD be closed? It's at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Last Man Standing (season 7). --AussieLegend () 14:16, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Rollback requestEdit

Hi zzuuzz, I'd like to request rollback privileges. Initially thought I could manage without it, but have recently dealt with two instances that made me reconsider.

1) The first is described on this talk page thread I started today. An IP user made 3 consecutive edits, and in the first edit (Edit #1), they inserted (what I suspect was intentionally) incorrect info. In order to revert Edit #1, I had to revert Edits #2 and 3, which they quickly reverted before I could revert Edit #1. Rollback would've allowed me to just directly roll back all 3.
2) The second was clearly vandalism, in 2 parts. Edit #1 inserted vandalism in one part of the article; Edit #2 moved the reworded vandalism to a different spot in the article. When I reverted Edit #2, it rolled back to Edit #1, which ALSO contained the vandalism, and made it look like I was the one who added it. I quickly undid Edit #1, but the rollback tool would've prevented this problem.

In any case, if granted the rollback privilege, I will definitely use it carefully and sparingly per the rollback guidelines; I also noticed there were confirmation scripts available, as well as a way to add edit summaries--both would be quite useful.

Thanks! Big universe (talk) 04:49, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi zzuuzz, forgot to leave a message here yesterday--I ended up enabling TWINKLE, and it's the better option for me, so thanks a lot for the suggestion. I posted a reply to your post anyway, in case you had time to read it. It is a bit long (didn't have enough time to trim it down more), but I hope it contains satisfactory answers to your questions/concerns. Thanks again for your time and help! Big universe (talk) 03:20, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Concern for granting permissionEdit

Hello sir, I'm a active user of Wikipedia. And I have requested for permission for helping Wikipedia for a safer place and help fellow Wikipedian's.

Hi Zzuuzz.

infodudeUKEdit

I see you deleted content I uploaded, can it not be used freely for commentary?

  • Do you not understand what "copyright" means? Drmies (talk) 19:17, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
  • @InfodudeUK: But you are not commenting on the image - frankly that will be a bit difficult to accomplish - and, with the Brexit image at least, there is already a free alternative available. You might also want to read WP:NFCC in particular. -- zzuuzz (talk) 19:19, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

@Zzuuzz the free alternative is now out of date with Brexit having not happened on March 29th, my revision corrects to April 12th the timeline. — Preceding unsigned comment added by InfodudeUK (talkcontribs) 19:23, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

@InfodudeUK: You are welcome to write some text, or create a new image, or update the existing image, though obviously nothing too similar to the BBC image. Sorry but we take copyright very seriously around here. There simply not enough justification here to just nick someone else's work (and claim it as your own). You should really read that page. -- zzuuzz (talk) 19:27, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

A thanks + An askEdit

Hi,

Thanks for blocking that IP I reported. As you included yourself in Category:Wikipedia_administrators_willing_to_grant_rollback_requests, I just wanted to let you know that WP:PERM/R has been sitting just below the backlog threshold for a couple of days (for reasons entirely unrelated to the fact that I'm on that request list). If you have a moment to consider those requests, it would be much appreciated.

Best, Mdaniels5757 (talk) 17:34, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Those school IPsEdit

Moving this here since it’s really a different discussion, but thanks for pointing them out. I looked at the OTRS ticket and there was nothing particularly sensitive going on there, and over a decade the ownership of the IPs may have changed/whatever students were in the supposed school are now at the very least no longer there/not in school at all given the passage of time. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:34, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Then thanks for reviewing and unblocking them, though I would say that it's the staff and not the students that matter, and whether the same staff is still there and what they might have been promised (wiki policy aside). The staff obviously realised that it's no use stopping particular students and that kids will always be kids and that the spew will always continue. Hopefully their firewall investment has improved in the last decade. -- zzuuzz (talk) 15:46, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

A FavorEdit

Would it be at all possible if I could ask you to block 140.0.160.175 (talk+ · tag · contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RBLs · block user · block log · cross-wiki contribs · checkuser (log))? It is one of several IPs used by an IP-hopping vandal that spams pages with poorly written, usually incorrect, often original research nonsense, or, alternatively, spams pages with inappropriate, nonexistent and or non-existent and inappropriate categories. It has become active again at this particular IP, and the only viable strategy I've found to deal with this vandal is to request that its current IP be blocked for a while so that all of its recent edits can be reverted as per WP:DENY (as searching through its many bad and unconstructive edits for its few good edits is a headache). Thank you for your time in hearing my request.--Mr Fink (talk) 04:17, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

SoftEther VPN#VPN GateEdit

If one of these is blocked, what duration do you suggest? Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 18:12, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

I'd say a lot of the time you can probably rely on your own usual non-proxy block length algorithm. Most are gone within a few days, so a month won't usually hurt anyone. Three probably won't hurt much either. If they've been blocked before it's probably a different matter - blocked in the last year, maybe block for a year? -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:56, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

ArbCom 2019 special circularEdit

 
Administrators must secure their accounts

This message was sent to all administrators following a recent motion. Thank you for your attention. For the Arbitration Committee, Cameron11598 03:02, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)Edit

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


Talk:Tony Mills (musician)Edit

Moved from Special:Diff/895636479

Zzuuzz, could you kindly ask Mr. Docker not to edit my talk entries? He's made the odd allegation that it is an "unwarranted reference to his wife," when. in fact, it refers to a someone who was editing under that name. I'm done editing here, but it's the principle of the matter, as there is nothing violative that I can think of. Thanks. Mystic Technocrat (talk) 16:07, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

RajeshbieeeEdit

Hi Z, Rajeshbieee is requesting an unblock. There is a history of sockpuppetry, but with a cursory understanding of his case, I think he might have screwed up early on and may now have a legitimate interest in contributing constructively.

"That impersonation LTA again"Edit

...is at it again, as you can see in my logs. Between heavy hitters such as you and DoRD, what can you do? Drmies (talk) 17:18, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

@Drmies:. Or see my log. I see there's quite some global log. Maybe the way forward. If not global we could go local. -- zzuuzz (talk) 20:21, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
Zzuuzz, I LOVE looking at your log, but I was more being chatty along the lines of "hey smart people put a stop to this", haha, because I saw y'all's names in the CU logs. You know, I still know way too little about the global thing and don't have much of an inclination to learn. Should I? What these stewards do seems so difficult, and even further removed from article writing... Drmies (talk) 00:13, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

HelloEdit

I am a new user. I have been undoing vandalism edits and reporting users, but i want to learn more about Wikipedia.

Do you know if there is an article about Wikipedia policy?

Thanks. 186.11.3.51 (talk) 22:30, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello. How about WP:SOCK? -- zzuuzz (talk) 22:40, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
OK that was hilarious. Drmies (talk) 00:18, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Cell phone spammerEdit

After some peace and quiet, the Indian university cellphone spammer dropped another one: 9540098653 [5]. Maybe you can add to filter as opportunity arises. Cheers --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 16:47, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

  Done. Yup the filter's been blocking some more of this stuff recently. -- zzuuzz (talk) 14:30, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

CUEdit

Hi. Onurkd is a new account that is showing good abilities to make edits that require experience such as uploading pics and very good skills with reference templates. Seraphim System and her confirmed socks had a habit of typing their edit summaries before the auto-generated text ([6][7][8][9][10][11]). The same thing is being done by Onurkd. Onurkd till now has edited only articles of the main topic edited by Seraphim System and her socks (Ottoman and Turkish history). Can you check the accounts to see whether they are linked or not? Ktrimi991 (talk) 17:19, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

I'm not exactly saying it's unlikely, but the evidence doesn't match up. -- zzuuzz (talk) 20:22, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the CU. I am glad Onurkd is innocent and will continue to contribute. Thanks again. Cheers, Ktrimi991 (talk) 20:40, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Thank you so much for good advice and kindness. Ktrimi991 , zzuuzz , Ktrimi991

Same person?Edit

Could AdhaBulliKutRamzaanMubarak (talk · contribs), ManasiAhujaSharma (talk · contribs) and RamzanMubarak (talk · contribs) be the same person? They both added and reverted the same content on Chhota Bheem Kung Fu Dhamaka. JACKINTHEBOXTALK 12:14, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

I'd say that's likely (usual disclaimers about meatpuppetry apply). The middle one is almost certainly Deepak Gauravnath (talk · contribs) and Sridhar reddy mca (talk · contribs). Hey you lot, stick to one account please. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:00, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Blocked user?Edit

Userpage of Malayalammojo contains suspicious descriptions. New account, but sounds like not a beginner user, especially the last sentence seems like the user was involved in arguments before and got blocked. Is the user calling the administrators an *******? 2405:204:D38A:CA0B:7D0F:C514:A118:5A35 (talk) 14:12, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
