Upload

Hi,

Can I have the upload right or can someone upload the profile pic from my twitter to meta for my new userpage?.

Suggest to non global User:Catherine Laurence

Apparently -revi undid the varnishing, they are sort of saying revi doesn't take care of their personal safety in the 1st sentence. For rest is a few comments like they feel that as compared to 3 years ago, wiki doesn't take IAR as tightly, as well as a note to Masumrezarock100 comment that they should use a new username. I think I shall translate it to Masumrezarock100, they are saying they are very apologetic to you, they had tried creating a new account after the varnishing but feel that people are condescending to them as a newbie and their identity is being exposed per OTRS, so new account doesn't help.

I don't think having this global will be useful, so I am seeking opinions of whether or not to add non global to this userpage. Regards, --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:06, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for clarifying his words. I was having a hard time understanding the machine translated text by Google translate. It is an very unfortunate case. It can be very hard to act like a newbie all the time. I thought it is required to keep confidential information on OTRS confidential. It seems that is not the case anymore. (: I highly suggest Catherine to reach out to Trust and Safety team as they can support and advice him better. Just to clarify, are you suggesting that we "disable" their global userpage to prevent the page on meta showing up on other wikis? Or just blank the whole page all together? Masum Reza📞 15:19, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
That's extremely wrong. Information sent to OTRS is confidential, and I have no idea what they are referring to when they say that on their userpage. Vermont (talk) 15:32, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
It's an unfortunate situation where they misunderstood the purpose of vanishing and got annoyed when, after resuming normal editing, the vanishing was undone. They could have asked to be renamed to something else other than a vanished user string. Anyways, they know how global userpages work; if they don't want it to be global, then they can ask for that. We do not have any right or responsibility to do anything about it. Vermont (talk) 15:32, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I agree that it's unfortunate. I am just proposing we non global that page as it's alright for the content here but to be as a global page, it's marginally off-scope. I had seen cases that consensus here had modified some user userpages. As a reply to Masumrezarock100, I am not asking for blanking.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:36, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Guys, all of you are making this worse by commenting. Just ignore them completely. If they are actually afraid for their safety, they should stop editing. Further engagement just adds additional drama. Ignore them. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:42, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Placing possibly dubious statements about other editors on a global user page appears to be disruptive at the least, suggest we delete this page, if they want to carry on this discussion they should use their talk page instead. — xaosflux Talk 16:22, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
    Suggestion revert back to the 1st version of this page and move the commentary to their talkpage. I think this will be more suitable. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:33, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
    I'm fine with that as well. — xaosflux Talk 19:03, 8 January 2020 (UTC)

Ombudsman commission

Is it still a reason that this page to be fully protected? (There's no indication that this page itself is a policy.)--GZWDer (talk) 11:46, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

The comment on the protection says "official policy amended by OC's member" and I have no reason to argue that. Plus it is an OC and staff managed page, I suggest that you ask them directly. They have rights and can address any concerns that you have.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:05, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
I think the edit war of 2016 has settled, and there isn't any vandalism in the page history, so the protection IMO shall be removed. --Krd 08:42, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
Per Krd an (OC member), I have reduced protection to autoconfirmed. There are many other official policies that are staff managed that do not have this level of protection and concerns from four years prior have been addressed. If need for full protection arises, it can be raised at that point in time. ~riley (talk) 23:58, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Removal of +Autopatrol from User:MCC214

They had been warned not to tag LTA pages here and they simply blanked those remarks, seemingly they had read the warning. They did it again here which is not needed at all. Just a simple author blanked deletion request is needed at all. Given the history of their talkpage which quite a fair bit of editing issues are shown and most recently riley did point out more concerns and they continued editing without addressing, I am in the point that they should not have autopatrol flag (which they are able to tag other user userpages over the AF).--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 10:21, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

Multiple attempts have been made by multiple users to dialogue with User:MCC214 about their editing behavior; none have been dignified with a response. This includes when MCC was issued a 3 day block; the user returned to editing after archiving the block rationale without responding. As attempts to discuss this behavior have gone unanswered, I am going remove autopatrol without further discussion while issuing a warning as continuing this behavior may lead to another block or other restrictions. ~riley (talk) 20:07, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
Hopefully they will engage in discussing their actions. Thanks for handling ~riley. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:43, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Report concerning 93.137.30.213

False positive: "Antispam"

I was trying to add a reply to Talk:Sustainability#Climate_action, but it got flagged as spam. I have reason to believe it's a false positive.

Unfortunately, I can't attach the text here, because then this edit gets flagged as well. PassioEtDesiderium 21:14, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

@PassioEtDesiderium: You are correct that this is a false positive, however, it only impacts users with less than 2 edits - you should be fine now. If that still didn't work for some reason, modify your text to replace the word "selling" (with a synonym) as it is the word triggering the abuse filter. ~riley (talk) 21:24, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
