That would be misunderstanding my statement. I expressed my opinion on what guided me on granting autopatrol rights. Not taking the action is not akin to declining the action—we are not governed by a single opinion. My previous commentary still stands.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:02, 2 May 2020 (UTC)

No further response, should there be any autopatrolled users editing your user page in a way that is unacceptable, re-report here and we will take necessary actions. Userpages are only allowed to be edited by meta autopatrolled users which are given out by sysops after some evaluation, so there should be enough protection.

User:By gone in Light

Hello. I have issued a warning to By gone in Light (talkcontribs) regarding some WM:URB edits. But while looking at their edits I am not sure they are understanding the scope of Meta. 90% of their edits are adding/removing content to User:By gone in Light/U. Others hardly make any sense. Surprisingly too, they have the most edits on Meta while not being particularly active on any other Wikimedia content-related project. Their repeat unintelligible email requests to me and apparently others and repeat frivolous rename requests (they've been renamed already twice in a very short time span) makes me wonder if we're at a WP:NOTHERE case, and I'd like further input as to what the next steps you think we should take if any. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:14, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Investigating privacy invasion

I believe I have had my privacy wrongfully invaded by user Materialscientist, who performed an illegitimate "fishing" check on my account, at Efforts to bring light to this locally via the block appeal process, have been frustrated by his complete and total refusal to answer any questions, not even to clarify if he even did a check, and further obstructed by the actions of two other local CheckUsers, Jpgordon and Yunshui, the former choosing to lie and claim there was no check, the latter locking me out of my talk page on the clearly false and unethical basis that I have supposedly admitted doing what the illegItimate check exposed (block evasion).

All these users seem to think I should have no problem with revealing my personal information, as a condition of being able to pursue a complaint about their improper inspection of my personal information. I do have a problem with it, both as a clearly immoral and unjust approach to privacy invasion, but especially as some of these users are part of the very system I am supposed to expose my private information to, as a means of redress.

My request is simple. Is it within anyone's power here to tell me if Materialscientist checked my account, and if so, what reason did he provide in the log? Obviously you have my permission to check me here, to verify I am entitled to know the personal information held about me on Foundation servers (I am a European Union citizen, and it seems to be the case the Foundation already accepts these logs are releasable to the person they pertain to, under the GDPR). Similarly, what reason was offered by jpgordon in the log when he performed the check he was at least willing to admit to performing, even though he too declined to address the subject of why he did so when asked by me.

This noticeboard is for issues dealing with metawiki. If you have concerns regarding checkuser use on the English Wikipedia, you may contact the enwiki arbitration committee (see w:Wikipedia:CheckUser#Complaints and misuse) or the ombudsman commission (Ombudsman commission).

Hasley's removal of my post from Talk:Ombudsman commission

A local Administrator by the name Hasley has removed my post from Talk:Ombudsman commission, without giving a resson. He also has his talk page locked so that so I cannot ask why he has done this.

I fail to see why that post should be removed, it is a perfectly legitimate question, and while the person trying to remove it before Hasley is claiming I am trolling or engaged in harsssment, those are clearly lies. A troll doesn't typically file privacy invasion complaints, and such a thing cannot be considered harassment. Besides, the fact the person accusing me of trolling and harassment has done nothing more than attempt to revert me wholesale, in the form of bullying into submission, rather shows he probably doesn't believe the charges.

This is a serious matter, so do not take it lightly. Don't assume that merely having the power to remove posts and lock users out of a project, entitles you to do so. If I am forced to reveal private information just to pursue a complaint of privacy invasion, I will seek the maximum redress available, and seek it against every single user who forced that outcome. BarryBoggside (talk) 11:18, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

I will just caution you against any reveal of private information. That will be oversighted and might lead to an oversight block. No comments on the other issues. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:46, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed: meta admin help page, not a general whinge page; please take it to your talk page

Hullo, this editor has no interest in meaningfully contributing; all they wish to do is use meta as a platform from which to continue harassing other users. The above section is illustrative of this; note also the threat to reveal personal information on the internet. Has been blocked on en-wp and Commons for this also. On y va! ——SerialNumber54129 11:34, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

IMHO they are ranting about their enwp CU block being unjust, however, this seems the case here for some users, and they approach people who are from OC which are the avenue to redress any abuse from CU. I am on the fence on this, we typically give latitude for people from other projects to air their grievances here and I don't see any clear outing. On the otherhand, this is close to unproductive. A note is if blocked this can be globally locked. I will defer to another admin for this. (leaning doing nothing at this moment) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:45, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
If it was just venting on project pages such as here—sure, no harm done. But if it moves onto personal pages such as it has on other projects. Mon vieux. ——SerialNumber54129 11:52, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
(Edit conflict.) Agreed; as it stands the user seems to be making legitimate use of Meta. Serial Number 54129, can you explain how BarryBoggside's post at Talk:Ombudsman commission was harassing other users – are we missing context? AGK ■ 11:54, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
He has no cause to be using such loaded accusations, and it is noted he only began doing so when he apparently failed in his attempt to bully me off the projects with wholesale reverts, which he initially only justified as "remove trolling", if he gave any reason at all. It disturbs me greatly how swiftly his unevidenced accusation of "harassment" led to a block on Commons, when the blocking admin arguably simply blocked because on one cursory look based on his reply to that report, he could find no relevance to Commons, and not, as he later logged as his official reason, "intimidation/harassment". I'm here (and on Commons) for one reason only, to pursue a complaint about my privacy having been invaded by an CheckUser without just cause, and I am only here and not at, because two other local CheckUsers decided to compound the mistake, rather than account for it, ultimately locking me out of the project in an apparent belief that would force me to drop it. I suspect this user only cares as much as he does, because he is perhaps the person who brought me to the attention of the first CheckUser in the first place, and perhaps now feels guilty that he may have somehow induced him to perform an illegitimate check, and accusing me of harassment now seems like it might be his only means of making it all go away. Hard to think of a better reason why he would be pursuing me as much as he is, certainly when none of the people he seems to think he is acting for, have said anything at all to give him reason to think they are behind him. BarryBoggside (talk) 12:10, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

The only person being intimidated here, is me, as a result of the cross-wiki harassment conducted by Serial Number 54289.....

You are in Wikipedia and Commons only to harass and intimidate other users. This must stop. Go away and never come back. Taivo (talk) 17:00, 17 May 2020 (UTC)"

I am of course now locked out of Commons entirely, which is handy for this local functionary, because now he won't have to explain what local policy he is following when he states I am "blocked forever" (a power reserved exclusively to the Foundation), and of course, why he refused to even bother to read my appeal. It is remarkably similar to my treatment at the hands of the Administrative elements of, although at least I suppose this guy was more efficient and to the point.

What is wrong with these people? Why do they think they can just get away with this level of sheer hostility and utterly cowboy use of what are supposed to be advanced privileges only given to trustworthy users of impeccable judgement? What do they not understand here? Good faith communication and the filing of legitimate reports, is not harassment, and you should only feel intimidated if you fear being sanctioned as a result of said communications/reports, which nobody who has followed the rules, should ever suspect would be the case, surely.

It is these repeated attempts by advanced rights holders to apparently demonstrate they can get away with anything, even up to completely locking me out of local projects if I don't keep my mouth shut, that is the real crime here.

I refuse to believe AGK is the only person I have interacted here who doesn't understand the basic rule - when you're in a hole, stop digging.

I'm not going to be silenced, and the harder you push, the harder I'll fight for my rights.

BarryBoggside (talk) 17:49, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

In response to User:AGK's point, once you're blocked on enwiki, it is not appropriate to go to every other English-speaking WMF wiki (especially every enwiki functionary's talk page on those wikis) and start casting aspersions. This is a pattern that is unfortunately common. They have been directed to several venues (UTRS, ArbCom, OC) and refuse to use them. I would support a block from Meta as well if this behavior continues. --Rschen7754 18:01, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

The reasons for my refusal are on record, and have apparently already been accepted by the Ombudsmen as entirely sound, so any block that presumes they are not, would clearly be in error, if not wholly prejudicial to their investigation. I have cast no aspersions, I can and will provide evidence for any specific claim anyone wants to take issue with, or I will be happy to retract if I cannot. And please don't exaggerate, I suspect there are non-fluent speakers here who will not understand your unnecessarily hyperbolic phrasing. BarryBoggside (talk) 21:02, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

You are not allowed to bring your dispute elsewhere to Meta. This wiki is also not an Appeals Court. Stop doing these two things, or you risk being blocked. Consider this your official warning. — regards, Revi 19:05, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

In other words: If you have a problem with English Wikipedia CheckUsers, solve that by contacting OC. If you have a problem with your block on English Wikipedia, follow English Wikipedia process. Meta-Wiki will not reverse your block on English Wikipedia - we don't have such jurisdiction and even if some of the people here might have that ability, they will not do it for you UNTIL you follow the English Wikipedia process. Period. — regards, Revi 19:13, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
It is hard for me to understand this warning even after your clarification. Why are you, for example, telling me to do something I have already done (contact the OC)? BarryBoggside (talk) 21:02, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
If you contacted OC, wait for their verdict. There is nothing Meta admins can/will do for you, and your contributions like this and this is considered "bringing disputes elsewhere to Meta". — regards, Revi 08:59, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

If we're keeping score, relevant local matters for local Administrators to resolve, at least according to my concerns, are as follows.....

1. Hasley's unexplained removal of my post (or rather his reluctance to explain it here, and the inability of myself to bring it to his attention due to his locked talk page)

2. Serial Number 25480's refusal to explain why he characterized my post as harassment

3. Rschen failing to identify an example of me casting an aspersion on which he is offering his support for a block of me here (and in the context of jurisdiction, why he is even referring to that local policy here)

4. The inherent contradiction in some Meta Administrators telling me I have to use mechanisms like OTRS or other private means to pursue supposedly local disputes, when a member of the OC has already apparently accepted my clearly stated reasons for why I consider those to be improper demands that would merely compound the original violation.

BarryBoggside (talk) 07:50, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Can you prove number 4, which meta administrator ask you to use OTRS? Please substantiate all your claims with relevant evidences such as diffs to prevent it being called as casting aspersions. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:53, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

I'm a meta wiki Autopatrollers I am applying for rights , I confess to the vast and rich database of Wikipedia that my knowledge is poor. Thousands of experienced and inexperienced Wikipedians are simultaneously editing our meta. It is clear that you have to get a lot of speed to test and audit their edited pages. Similarly, I have to go through a lot of time to get my edits tested. I have read, learned, understood, and tried to gain considerable experience with meta rules and responsibilities of automated testers.I am actively creating and editing pages in accordance with wiki rules, and will continue to do so in the future. So if I think it's worthwhile, testing the rest of Wikipedians will solve the hassle, and the speed of meta growth will be even greater. And if I don't qualify, I'll be happy to give you a little time and encouragement to qualify.পরস (talk) 17:50, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

It would be unusual for us to grant account creator at this wiki without a specific purpose of an event, or similar, and on most occasions it would be temporary.

Ok I request to Autopatrollers and Patrollers .At the same time, thousands of experienced and inexperienced Wikipedians continue to edit.It is clear that you have to get a lot of speed to test and audit their edited pages.Similarly, I have to go through a lot of time to get my edits tested.I have read, learned, understood and tried to gain enough experience with Wikipedia's rules and responsibilities of automated testers and patrollers.If I had this right, other users wouldn't have to bother checking my edits anymore And I would check other registrations. I would also check other registrations.পরস (talk) 05:44, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
I am sad they did not disclose my rejection of their patroller request here. For autopatrol, I frankly see no need and this seems like hat-collecting from the entire request. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:23, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
@পরস: Generally admins will grant autopatrol rights when one of sees the need; it is not generally needed to be requested. Don't fuss that we have to patrol your edits, that is our issue, not yours, we can cope.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:00, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

This is the whole Quick SPI, closed with no action. No CU was performed apparently, but you got no IPBE permissions either. Now I have not seen the ticket, but if you've used other accounts in the past it'd be best for you to be honest and say so now. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:13, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: please check ticket , I'm honest I don't have a 2nd account.পরস (talk) 11:18, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

You're right, you don't have a second account. You have many accounts. --Vituzzu (talk) 11:30, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
@Vituzzu:I'm honest I don't have many accounts so tell me if this is the case,I also use vpn and Tor network.পরস (talk) 11:34, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
Indeed you have, the so-called Skh Sourav halder cluster is yours. You indeed misunderstood what WMF ecosystem is: this is not a social network where you look for the possibility to create a "profile" or gain "badges". --Vituzzu (talk) 12:07, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
2 things, one that is linked to meta is whether the bn translations this user creates accurate, they seems to create it in a mass fasion. Another is that should we leave the GIPBE on for them? I don't see the trust needed to hold GIPBE. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:14, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
GIPBE is already gone, I cannot understand why it was granted tho. --Vituzzu (talk) 12:18, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
@Vituzzu: They have both GIPBE and local meta IPBE. You removed the local group but not the global group. I don't know why they have so many IPBEs.Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:22, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

@Vituzzu: I am not skh Sourav Halder,You're wrong somewhere ,I urge you to close this discussion with proper judgment পরস (talk) 12:42, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

Indeed you are, as of now what do you want to do here, apart from collecting "badges"?
@Camouflaged Mirage: let's say hat collecting is a characteristic trait of "too young" LTAs. --Vituzzu (talk) 12:57, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
Of course it is a trait of such LTAs. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:05, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

@Vituzzu: I would like to contribute from this account, And give back my global rights because I use vpn and Tor.পরস (talk) 13:04, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

I am saying you are closer to a block/lock then having such global rights restored. I am inclined to block. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:05, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
@Vituzzu: Do you consider to globally lock পরস because long-term abuse? Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker (talk) 13:08, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
@Vituzzu and MarcoAurelio: But after I made a mistake in the first account I was not given the opportunity to contribute by any subsequent account.I am willing to contribute well if you give me one last chance,I did not abuse any account.However, I did not understand the account created. Now I know about the Wikipedia rules. --পরস (talk) 13:13, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
"But after I made a mistake in the first account [...]" (sic; diff).
Some hours ago I asked you if you have had any other accounts and be honest about that. You said you didn't have any other accounts. Vituzzu then investigated and discovered that you indeed used multiple accounts. You continued to deny the facts until now. Do you think this is a positive attitude towards gaining any kind of community trust? Or constructive behaviour? If you aim to be given a last chance you should be identifying now the complete list of accounts you registered. That'd give your words some sort of credibility; but for now I don't think any kind of permissions should be assigned to your account considering the sock puppetry issues. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:00, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

@Vituzzu and MarcoAurelio: Account created by me please check I did not do destructive work by creating an account And did not abuse by creating an account You said I was scared to lie for this I apologize for this I would like to put a proof subject notice here Don't block my account Because I'm aware of Wikipedia rules now‌ Then if I open an account, block me globally without giving me another chance.I want to keep this account and edit according to the rules. Also my previous account Skh sourav halderAfter that, delete the account that was opened This is the last account পরস I will work in the name. Besides, I will not open any more accounts.I would like to make another requestSkh sourav halderChanges the name পরস and পরস Changes the name Skh sourav halderI want to work under my real name.And give me back my global rights,All this was a notice Then if I open an account you will block me globally.and please Last changeপরস (talk) 16:40, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

You are still demanding rights, renames, where you are local block / global lock evading? Blocked. Nothing else to do here Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:36, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
Well, I guess and didn't leave us much of a choice here. In any case, it is up to the Bengali Wikipedia to allow them a second chance or unblocks with conditions. I am courtesy pinging NahidSultan here so he's aware of this thread. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:09, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

I just want an answer to this question

First, I will be honest: yes, I am Skiyomi. And I know this account will be globally locked because of that. But I'm just wondering: will I ever be able to edit on Wikimedia projects with an account again? I've tried appealing the global locks on my accounts (Skiyomi and Elianna Sei) but those appeals weren't replied to (I had used the stewards' email address). So what do I do in order to be able to have an account on Wikimedia? Or am I banned from these projects forever? Thank you for any answers. Aeonia the Jedi (talk) 00:44, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Blocked locally, globally locked. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:13, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Opinion needed

Hello all. Are these pages out of scope? --Minorax (talk) 09:04, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Ideally this should be at WM:RFD but well this is okay for me. I am also unsure so I tagged rather than delete striaght, rationale being they are drafts of the competition which after reading the instructions of the competition, they are to write articles at their respective wikipedia versions, not on meta. Meta isn't wikipedia, so I am inclined to delete as out of scope. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:21, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
How about exporting them to his WP userspace? I'm not sure what this competition is that you are mentioning, but it seems a shame to lose the work they've put effort into—and also reduce future admin work when he inevitably asked for the contents to be emailed to him later :) ——SerialNumber54129 11:01, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
@Serial Number 54129: True, I am intending to delete in main and then give them a copy in their userspace if they wants (via supress-redirect move maybe), the competition I referring to is Wiki4Women, apparently to encourage creation of women related biographies (which we lacks everywhere). Thanks for the viewpoint, appreciate it. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:25, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
I'm not sure whether I can post my perspective here, so feel free to remove this if that's not fine. However, I'd ask the original author to move those pages to other sister projects' draft namespace where it should be, and then delete them per that reason. --Hamish 11:04, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Stick the into their user namespace. That puts them out of the way, and still able to be worked upon.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:06, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Billinghurst idea seems the best, although I can export the zh ones (via transwiki import) to zhwp userspace if deemed suitable. They are in scope if it's userspace drafts, not per mainspace pages. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:23, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Seems that some of this has already happened.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:19, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
Sorry I am not too well these days, will handle all the transwiki and moving into namespaces soon. Apologies for the delay. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 06:41, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svg All sorted out. Thanks for all the suggestions. Most are moved to local user subpages, for zh I transwiki imported there. All cleaned-up. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:30, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

Request for the MassMessage Rights

Hello, I am Nitesh Gill. I am working with CIS-A2K (The Center for the Internet and Society- Access to Knowledge) team from August 2019. I am Project Coordinator, named Project Tiger, You can see the Project details here. In this Project, we (Suswetha K and I) are dealing with Indic communities continuously and we have to send out important information and updates frequently. Since we don't have the Massmassage rights, it is difficult for us to approach every community and users separately. Currently, we have to execute a crucial step of the Project which is community consultation. We created some google forms for feedbacks from community members. However, for all the processes I need MassMassage Rights. I request you to please give me the rights because it's necessary for us. Thank you in Advance. Nitesh Gill (talk) 14:06, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

@Nitesh Gill: Can I have a sample MMS as well as the target list if possible, and how long will you need the right? Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:55, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Hi Camouflaged Mirage, Thank you for your quick response. Yes, sure! I generated a sample Message here and target list here. I need the Massmessage rights, at least, for the three months. Thank you so much once again. Nitesh Gill (talk) 16:18, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
@Nitesh Gill: Yes check.svg Granted for 3 months. Do let us know if you need it for longer. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 08:28, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Great! Thank you so much Camouflaged Mirage. Nitesh Gill (talk) 17:14, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
