Our friend from Athens continuesEdit

Maybe it's time for a bunch of page locks. I don't know whether range blocks are possible. Thanks, 2601:188:180:B8E0:0:0:0:ACDF (talk) 00:44, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

"Autoblock issue"?Edit

Hi Zzuuzz! As always, it's great to frequently run into you out on the battlefield, and I hope you're doing well! :-)

I had a question about the block that you performed here. You put a summary of "autoblock issue" in this block, and looking at the block itself, it looks like there was an issue or bug with the autoblock feature that we implement, and that you implemented a short block in order to remove, reset, or fix it. Do you remember this event at all? Assuming that I'm correct (probably not...) and that you applied this block as a workaround or fix, I'm interested to know... what happened? What broke? And why does applying this block fix it? I'm just curious and wanted to get some context. ;-)

Oh, and I just wanted to casually point you here really quickly. I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not (most admins aren't), but when you need to rev del a user creation log from public view (usually to redact an abusing username from it), you need to make sure that both the action/target and the performer's username/IP are selected to be redacted for the log to be properly hidden from public view. If you only redact the action/target or the performer's username/IP (and not both), things will appear to be hidden just fine; the UI will output the log as if the abusive username is hidden. However, the log will still be visible in its entirety for anyone who queries the API. Redacting both pieces of the user creation log will hide it from being viewable from the API. This only applies to new account creation logs; the other logs do not have this issue. ;-)

Anyways, get back to me when you're not busy. My question about the block log is not a high priority inquiry at all. :-) Cheers, my friend! ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 14:12, 12 April 2022 (UTC)

Thanks Oshwah. It is the type of thing I'd do to clear an autoblock. Maybe you've seen the full CU log around the same time, which provides a clue. I can't remember exactly what happened, but I wouldn't have done it if I didn't have a good reason and it wasn't effective. As to the exact details, and the consequences, they're probably lost in history. But I'm sure it worked out for the good. -- zzuuzz (talk) 14:44, 12 April 2022 (UTC)
Zzuuzz - That's good enough for me... I'll check out the CU logs and see if I can't figure out what happened. Thanks for the response! :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 15:14, 12 April 2022 (UTC)

New administrator activity requirementEdit

The administrator policy has been updated with new activity requirements following a successful Request for Comment.

Blocked IPEdit

Hi, I commented in an archived discussion about an IP block, could you please have a look? Thanks. Adam Harangozó (NIHR WiR) (talk) 08:42, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

Hello Adam. It's generally bad form to continue a discussion in an archive - just add anything here. There are two ways to deal with this type of problem: loosen the block you mentioned, or work around it. I think the latter is currently the best option, at least until there has been a wider discussion about all Forcepoint blocks: it prevents abuse from the range (of which there has been some), and it works even when IP addresses vary (which they frequently do). Here's how we work around it:
  • For users who don't have any Wikipedia account (on any language wiki), they need to create one. This is commonly known as a SUL or global account. If they can't create one on this wiki, then it's usually most possible on metawiki: meta:Special:CreateAccount. This can also usually be done on a mobile, at home, or from a coffee shop.
    • If for some reason they can't create a global account, and you have their email address, then you can create an account for them. This is easier and best done on this wiki (although it's not necessary and sometimes not possible): Special:CreateAccount. Also take a look at meta:Mass account creation.
  • For users who have a global account, but can't create a local account on this wiki: I can create one for them.
  • For users who have a local account but still can't edit, I can grant them block exemption.
This should address any problems you might come up against. You can look up the status of a username at Special:CentralAuth. Work through these points, and at the relevant point, let me know the affected usernames. -- zzuuzz (talk) 10:28, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Hi, would you grant block exemptions for the following users? They are going to attend an edit-a-thon tomorrow and they will be using the mentioned work VPN. Thank you!

OK, I get that they state that they're in the Ghana/Nigeria region and affected by these blocks, and that you trust them. I'll grant IPBE for 3 months. At the same time, writing about entrepreneurs and musicians of dubious notability is never a good look, nor is this message about paid editing from Praxidicae. With IPBE, Kwamevaughan should be on their best behaviour. -- zzuuzz (talk) 11:19, 5 September 2022 (UTC)

Disruptive IP (CU) have returned after block expired Sockpuppet Master Gala1900Edit

Hello Zzuuzz, seems a IP with several past blocks for Sockpupetry have returned to his disruptive behaviour. here. The IP user keeps reverting and disrupting, and is a IP of Sock Gala1900. First detected and blocked on 27 Sep 2020, and again on 31 April 2021 Mr.User200 (talk) 00:42, 26 May 2022 (UTC)

QuestionEdit

Not sure how this would work, given the 'evidence' is on another Wiki project by an IP user, but I received this message, obviously related to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Simulation12 (FTR- the IP's range is already blocked here by yourself at 2600:1700:8FC0:8C30:0:0:0:0/64). The account name had created an ANI thread- WP:ANI#Concerns about edits at NickRewind. What should be done regarding this?... (Another FTR- the other user reported in the ANI has been engaged in many edit wars and has been endlessly combative with other users, as discussed through the thread. Hope that if this is indeed a sock that created the thread, that it doesn't end the discussion on another technicality, as many users continue having issues with the reported user). Thanks in advance. Magitroopa (talk) 19:53, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

Simulation12 is known for claiming accounts that are not theirs, and I refer you to this. That's not to say that it isn't their account, just that I'm not seeing it. I'll continue taking a look at the relevant topic areas and see if I can find how their interest got piqued. -- zzuuzz (talk) 20:37, 1 June 2022 (UTC)
This may or not be related to this, but my User page is now being blank attacked by User:Fstldy. --IJBall (contribstalk) 20:50, 1 June 2022 (UTC)
Something instead to do with Famke Janssen, methinks. -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:06, 1 June 2022 (UTC)
If so, you may also want to take a look at User:AbdulOluinteraction report. --IJBall (contribstalk) 21:09, 1 June 2022 (UTC)
Indeed, indeed. I'm currently inclined to let the autoblock do its work (opinions may vary). -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:18, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

If you mean the two I blocked for impersonating/harassing Randy Kryn, see Special:PageHistory/James Bevel and my discussion with Awolf/Mrbeastmodeallday at User talk:Awolf58 § Note for Tamzin, where he didn't deny that that was him. He seems to randomly fixate on someone for a bit. Was CactiStaccingCrane for a while, with some pretty elaborate impersonation trying to make it look like CSC was meatpuppeting. Then imitated Lilach5 well enough that they were mistakenly sockblocked. Now back to Randy, it seems. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she|they|xe) 08:38, 17 August 2022 (UTC)
Also note, CU-wise, that Awolf tends to geolocate all over the San Francisco Bay Area, using random WiFi hotspots to edit. I believe he's based in Sacramento, unless he's moved since his days loutsocking as Special:Contribs/2601:204:C300:4FA5::/64. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she|they|xe) 08:43, 17 August 2022 (UTC)
I was mainly referring to a sock you tagged a few minutes prior, with a rather strange stalker-ish name, though every other indication is leading that way. The impersonation cases are confirmed to EstWhenever. The other accounts, such as US Founding Fathers regulars, STOP BULLYING each other, I AM CONSENSUS and The Founding Father of the Founding Fathers, I'm still trying to figure out, but they're also up to no good. -- zzuuzz (talk) 08:50, 17 August 2022 (UTC)

Hi,

Thanks for banning ArootsEdit

I knew it was a bad faith response. So he's an alt, too... Dennis Dartman (talk) 15:48, 31 August 2022 (UTC)

Really appreciate you fixing the erroneous block. Editing Wikipedia keeps me sane while I do household chores all day! jengod (talk) 18:42, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
