Steward impersonator

...or just overly long user name, whatever you want to block for. See new user MMMMMMMMMM7777777777. John Reaves (talk) 02:09, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

User blocked. Cbrown1023 talk 02:38, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

User:Holy Hell5

Someone care to take a look at this? Allegedly a sockpuppet account? --Herby talk thyme 16:01, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

I have no good evidence either to assert or to reject the claim. However in my humble opinion the username itself deserves a permenent blocking, even if I am not pious.--Aphaia 17:03, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Image talk:Stop hand.svg

The image can be deleted, but it is edit:sysop, so Bangin could not put the nowcommons template on the page itself. --Thogo (talk) 23:54, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Deleted by Majorly. MaxSem 06:06, 9 May 2007 (UTC)


I would like to have this account renamed to WiganRunnerEu, and the old one renamed to Former-wiganrunnereu since this one now has email enabled. My last account did not have email enabled, but this one now does. --WiganRunnerEu1 11:28, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

How can you proove that it's you? MaxSem 17:22, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Vandal accounts - heads up

Given Requests for CheckUser information#Wikispecies & the recently blocked User:Jimbo Donal Wales wearing briefs stinking of mud! it may be worth keeping an eye on user creation logs here and other Wikis --Herby talk thyme 19:55, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Remnants of an old template system?

Hi all. I found Template:Catlst/doc, one associated template (Template:Catlist, cf. the links to that template) is a broken redirect to a not longer existing template. So it is completely useless now. Can someone (who is involved into that category/template system) please have a look at it and delete (or archivate) what is not longer used/necessary? (Or even better explain to me how this stuff works and why and for what it is used/needed. :o) ) Grtx, --Thogo (talk) 14:48, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Try Fabartus - not sure what they are doing but they are doing something with templates over a number of wikis --Herby talk thyme 14:54, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
I asked him to come here. Thank you for the hint. --Thogo (talk) 15:14, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
It is part of of a project (Talk:MP:TSP#Highly misguided project with an arrogant and offensive rationale) to spread templates on Wikimedias wikis. / 15:29, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
My, my -- Someone logged out just to vent as an anom. How stablizing common useful tools so the many can be on familiar ground and have a familiar tool is 'arrogant' is beyond me. Sigh.

The reason {{catlst/doc}} is showing so many broken links, is that they either haven't been written, or haven't been exported from en.wp or the commons, which are the test beds. As to what they do, they are used to display either a bullet separated list (those based on {{catlst}}) or a comma separated list (Based on {{catlist}}), the latter being a return to an earlier format version of the former.
Whether they are used here or not, this is the project library, so international editors have a clean starting point, or place to look things up at. // FrankB 19:20, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

(Edit conflict}

Ok, thanks to Fabartus for repairing the broken redirect. --Thogo (talk) 17:13, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Username Usurp

Hi - I have username Philippe on en.wikipedia, but that name was already taken here. The user had a single edit in January of 2003. I would like to usurp that username, if possible. I've read above where someone's requesting a similar situation, and hope that you can help me as well. Many thanks! Philippebeaudette 18:31, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Done. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shanel (talk • contribs) 18:47, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
Dang, you're fast. Thanks! Philippe 22:03, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
