Autopatrolled permission on Meta-Wiki[edit]

Can I become autopatrolled in Meta-Wiki? Do I meet the requirements? Marshmallych ?! 13:54, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, granted. We do not have any strict requirements, admins rely on their judgement in this, usually it goes around users having good experience in other wiki, and you have an editor flag on ruwiki, and an amount of activity on Meta making sense for the flag :) --Base (talk) 14:31, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Request confirm User:Hclear-bot[edit]

This user is an account I created specifically for the bot. My bot uses oauth verification, however, this account has not been confirmed so that it cannot request a OAuth consumer. I know this will be automatically confirmed after a few days, but I am in a hurry. Please confirm it. --星耀晨曦 (talk) 02:02, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Wikimedia / translatewiki.net abuse[edit]

Hi,

In the last couple of months there has been a recurring pattern of abuse of multiple accounts on translatewiki.net, Meta, and other sites. The latest examples are User:Not abusing multiple accounts2 and User:Amire90 Stop (the latter spoofs my own username), as well as the IP address 77.37.135.11 (talkcontribsinfoWHOIS).

A very similar case was reported here.

I'm an admin here myself, but not blocking because of COI, even though the abuse and the vandalism are pretty blatant.

Thanks! --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 07:22, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

I believe COI exceptions apply to blatant vandalism and/or abusive usernames. Usernames are locked, it seems. — regards, Revi 07:39, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
@Amire80: Recommend that we have something username related in title blacklist  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:15, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
Feel free to do it—you appear to be much more experienced with that :)
Although it does make me wonder whether it wouldn't be better to do it with AntiSpoof. At least by definition it appears to be closer to being the right tool for this job. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 09:36, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
Antispoof is simply an extension leveraged by other extensions like title blacklist and abuse filters. Yes check.svg Done special:diff/17928723  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:40, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

Rollback flag for Marshmallych[edit]

Please, grant me rollback flag. Marshmallych ?! 17:35, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Note that this guy is frequently targeted by a LTA vandal. He must have rollback if only for self-defence. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 18:24, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
On Meta that is called Patrollers flag, you may wish to request your talk page protection instead. SA 13 Bro (talk) 18:41, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
Protection for the user talk? @SA 13 Bro: gave a severely ill-considered advice. What to do if the vandal attacks the User: page instead? Note that in an earlier thread Billinghurst refused to protect either user: or user_talk: pages, motivating the former by an upcoming abuse filter – although Meta sysops do not demonstrate ability to produce this thing. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 20:24, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: Yes, I am actually also thinking of that. I noticed that other user was also request the Patrollers right at here in previously, but Stryn has said that he would like to see the user on Meta in activity for a bit longer time. SA 13 Bro (talk) 20:58, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: I believe that you misrepresent my position. I declined to do a batch request of these, that is not refusing to do any, and I gave commentary. I suggested I preferred an abuse filter, and put it to the community to discuss, which no one did. I have subsequently have the filter in place, though in testing for consequences prior to consequential actions.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:05, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

I considered protecting it, but looking over usage of {{Deceased}} was that userpages are typically not protected so I left it as is. — regards, Revi 18:24, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Abuse filter[edit]

I am not sure about the situation is what, but the IP from India appealing the unlock request at Talk:Steward requests/Global is User:Virajmishra, not a LTA trolls. SA 13 Bro (talk) 07:46, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

I believe some time ago we had two trolls reporting each other to be blocked on different pages. Cause of the amount of times that happened an abuse filter was made to prevent it. It seems to me that this abusefilter hit might be a false positive, even though I can't see the specific details about why the filter tripped. --Wiki13 talk 07:53, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
It is a stewards' filter for their pages, we can leave it to them to manage. @Vituzzu: one of yours.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:13, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
Switched to log-only, it was meant as a temporary measure which lasted too much. --Vituzzu (talk) 09:18, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

For requests for global unlock, please use SRG  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:36, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
He cannot make the requests because the page is semi-protection due to persistent vandalism, so I had put his appealing on the page. SA 13 Bro (talk) 12:38, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

Artix Kreiger, I am very sad. :([edit]

This user has requested for self global locked because he get caught by CU blocked and determined is a sock of User:Winterysteppe on English Wikipedia, could any admins please remove away his Patrollers right?
