@Tulsi Bhagat: The user did not contribute, but kept interfering my talks, tagging third party users and making outing. I hope you have the permission to read it. It is an outing which is made by Tagemall. Like Tagemall, it was blocked also under the user:S i p i f i. It addressed a Hebrew Wiki interface administrator regarding me by a third user which has not been blocked yet. It uses a lot of user names, and uses each user a few times.

Request for account creator rights

Hi! I'd like to request account creator rights on Meta for 1 month or so. I need them because of the noratelimit access so I can contact Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy Month participants via email without facing the 20 emails per day limit; we expect two batches of emails, now & in a couple of weeks. I'm a contractor for Wikimedia Ukraine since 2018, and on my volunteer account (Aced) I have sysop & 'crat rights on UkWiki since 2013 (and a bunch of less important flags in other wikis). --AntonProtsiuk (WMUA) (talk) 12:47, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: ".site" seems overly broad (you added in 2018) - still needed in local blacklist? — xaosflux Talk 13:40, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: Sorry for the late reply. I've been away. All .site links I came across over here were spam or innapropriate. I don't mind delisting it and monitor its use, or maybe allow only autoconfirmed users to put links to that TLD via AbuseFilter. Ping to Billinghurst for another opinion. In any case and to allow Felipe da Fonseca to do his job, I've added the site mentioned above to our local whitelist. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:17, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
We can modify the regex to \.site/ if you want to allow its use elsewhere and keep out the TLD version. We haven't blocked it globally and the only other site that I see has it has a global TLD is idWS. <shrug>  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:24, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: thanks for the update and notes, if this keeps coming up we can further adjust it or migrate to AF; quick look at the log shows nothing but spam in the .site TLD though. Best regards, — xaosflux Talk 12:02, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
  • @Felipe da Fonseca: you should be able to add this link now, sorry for the delay it had nothing to do with that site or you, just a general spam problem that it got caught up in. — xaosflux Talk 12:02, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

About hosting a tool in the MediaWiki namespace

I have recently developed a tool that generates a structured description of categories based on Wikidata statements. Further details are available at d:Wikidata:Structured Categories. The JavaScript Code is currently stable at d:User:Csisc/StructuredCategories.js. I ask if the source code can be copied and pasted at MediaWiki:Gadget-StructuredCategories.js so that the tool can be safely deployed across language editions of Wikipedia. --Csisc (talk) 16:37, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

@Csisc: are you intending this to actually be a gadget here on the meta-wiki, or do you just want code placed somewhere that our interface administrators will maintain with edit requests in the future? Does it have active maintainers? — xaosflux Talk 18:09, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: I am intending to deploy this gadget across multiple editions of Wikipedia, Wikiquote, Wikiversity, Wikispecies and Wikivoyage. It will be useless to host the tool in the MediaWiki namespace of every Wikimedia project. I also want code placed somewhere that the MetaWiki administrators will maintain with edit requests in the future. I am the creator of the project. But, it will be interesting to enhance the sustainability of the created tool. As well, there are several concerns about using user scripts as tool sources, particularly regarding data security. The idea of hosting the code in the MediaWiki namespace in Meta was proposed by administrators in Italian Wikipedia and Persian Wikipedia. --Csisc (talk) 20:09, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
I think that hosting it on meta and then including in individual projects where it is used makes sense, and I would support such usage of meta. You'd need to fill a request for meta interface administrator rights, see Meta:Interface administrators. Best, Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:48, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Martin Urbanec: It will be simpler if an administrator can copy the JavaScript code and paste in MediaWiki:Gadget-StructuredCategories.js on my behalf. --Csisc (talk) 20:52, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
@Csisc That would mean you would not be able to maintain it anymore – I don't think it's a good idea to have code that cannot be maintained by its author. Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:58, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Martin Urbanec: I know. However, I can still ask for applying revisions from the Meta administrators if required. But, if the interface administrator rights can be granted to me for Meta, I will not object. Yet, I think that this is a long process. That is why I think that if an administrator can move the code, this will be more efficient to proceed with deploying the tool. --Csisc (talk) 21:17, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
@Csisc: please note that simply adding the page does not actually make this in to a "gadget", that would also need to be done. That is what I was asking if this was actually ready to be gadgetized and added to MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition? Note, this generally requires identifying and loading certain libraries. — xaosflux Talk 21:25, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
xaosflux: Yes, it is already used as a gadget in the Italian Wikipedia. I just need the source code to be hosted in the MediaWiki namespace. The tool will not be used as a gadget in Meta. Then, every Wikimedia project that will like to use the tool as a gadget can call the tool using mw.loader.load(). See it:MediaWiki:Gadget-StructuredCategories and it:MediaWiki:Gadget-StructuredCategories.js for an example of how to do this in wikis. --Csisc (talk) 22:28, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
@Csisc: OK, so we don't need to activate it as a gadget here, so that's "easier" I suppose; as this is primarily "about" wikidata, have you asked about hosting it there? As you are a much more prolific editor on wikidata you may be able to become an admin/int-admin there and maintain it directly as well. — xaosflux Talk 23:35, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
User:Xaosflux: The process of adding JavaScript codes in Wikidata is quite more complicated and takes time and this will block the deployment of the tool. As well, the MediaWiki namespace in Wikidata only includes the codes that are deployed in Wikidata. --Csisc (talk) 23:48, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
User:Xaosflux: I asked for interface adminship as requested. Please find the request at d:Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Interface administrator/Csisc. --Csisc (talk) 01:35, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
@Csisc: in the meantime, I've uploaded for you to MediaWiki:Gadget-StructuredCategories.js - keep in mind you will need to request edit reviews for any updates by posting an edit request on the associated talk page - then wait for an interface administrator to review and implement the edit. Should you gain access at wikidata, we can just delete it here. — xaosflux Talk 02:01, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
Xaosflux: That is all what I needed. Thank you. --Csisc (talk) 12:47, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Marking Steward_requests/Global_permissions/Global_renamers for translation

Hi, could someone mark the above page for translation? I ask because I had made some changes to the source page to reflect practice (such as removing the "global renamer is not a vote" because it is), but the use of {{Template:Dynamite}} means that even the en version is taken from the translated version, which I cannot do since I'm not a translationadmin.

What counts as CheckUser 'abuse'?

Hello, I am in a situation where a checkuser on insists that I am the sockpuppet of a blocked user—which I am not. He stated that my editing pattern "fits perfectly" with that of the blocked user, without providing any diff to back that up, and said that our "technical profiles" come very close. On that ground, he kept me blocked for more than two years. At one point it was clear that, if I wanted to keep using my account, I would have to prove that I am not a sockpuppet by disclosing my personal information. Which I did. I gave my name and surname, which coincides with my first username. I linked to my social media, showing that I don't even live in the same country as the suspected sockmaster... Which the checkuser of course already knew from our ips. But even after publicly disclosing my personal information, the checkuser keeps insisting without proof that I am the sockpuppet of a blocked user!

The question is simple: If a checkuser repeatedly accuses someone of being a sockpuppet—without providing any diff and with the supposed sockpuppet and sockmaster editing from different countries—does that count as 'abuse' of the CheckUser tool? Or does only the release of personal information count as violation of the CheckUser policy? Your advice would help me greatly. Thank you. Atón (talk) 16:32, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Comment Comment @Atón: This appears to be a concern for the ombuds commission. In that case, I suggest you to read the page where I've linked to. At that page also stands 'how to handle' when you suspect violation of the checkuser policy or abuse of checkusertool. Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker (CA) 16:53, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you very much, @Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker: (or, dank je wel!). I already did. @Góngora: responded on their behalf saying that no violation of the policy took place because "no disclosure of personal information took place". But is that the only criteria? Should I get in contact with them again, or would I get the same answer? Atón (talk) 17:27, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
@Atón: The Ombuds Commission has these 5 guidelines:
  1. Be concise. Lengthy emails with unnecessary information make it harder for the commission to process the case in a timely manner.
  2. Be objective. Avoid making inquiries based on speculations or subjective judgements.
  3. Provide evidence. Please provide us with diff links and/or permanent links when possible.
  4. Be specific. Specify what part of which policy has been violated.
  5. Please inform us if your wiki has an Arbitration Committee (or a similar committee) and if you have reached them (or used other dispute resolution procedure customary to your community) before reaching the Ombuds Commission. Provide a link to the relevant case page if appropriate.
I think that you could better follow-up these guidelines, otherwise it's likely that your request is going to be declined. Please note that administrators and non-administrators cannot help you further, only the arbitration committee - if your homewiki has - and the ombuds commission can help you further. Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker (CA) 14:19, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
I will try again then. Thank you very much Atón (talk) 14:28, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
@Atón: Checkusers are meant to be a check upon each other. So you should have recourse to go back to other esWP checkusers and explain your issue to them, and seek their assistance of resolution. OC is there to review breaches of privacy, or the breach of policies for the tools. I would think that asking for another CU to review the findings is a worthwhile choice.  — billinghurst sDrewth 14:39, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Question regarding my global user page

I am being accused of being a sockpuppet in, which is why I have decided to state my personal information on my global user page (User:Atón). But after doing this, another editor has created my own user page in (es:Usuario:Atón), preventing my global user page to be visible. As I am currently blocked, I cannot request my local user page—created by another user—to be deleted.

If there is something that needs to be removed from my global user page, I will remove it. But I also want my personal information to remain visible in How can I solve this? Thank you Atón (talk) 22:04, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

@Atón: being allowed to have, or being forced to have a userpage on eswiki is completely up to that project - there is nothing that meta-wiki admins can do about that - you would need to bring it up with them. You could place the __NOGLOBAL__ directive on your metawiki userpage to prevent it going to other projects while still being visible here. — xaosflux Talk 14:23, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

I was accused of being a sockpuppet by a checkuser. I included my personal information in my user page to disprove it (see User:Atón). That was not well taken and led to my block. I have contacted the Ombuds commission. In the mean time I feel I have the right to include my personal information in my user page.

That way request is still valid and "requester" (or the 'reported' with your words) still waiting for an appropriate answer from valid functionaries. That case with only difference - while abusing with use of 'power' (additional user privileges) still have place here - as a reader. 14:44, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
  • FP is a "false positive" against the specifics of that filter; but it is an edge case that we won't need to adjust that filter for, once unblocked that requester could try again using different phrasing. In the meantime, to contacts the stewards' team you may use the various options available here. — xaosflux Talk 15:21, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
@Xaosflux:Sorry for I decided you claimed something unpleasant and unapproved on me.
I see you won't edit the above-mentioned filter itself, ok, I will try to 'use another phrases' when I will be able to do it from the same IP-address (when it will be unblocked).
I have read link you provided before but case is stewards themselves (as a group) are working with global blocks only and at Steward requests/Global exactly told:
that way redirecting exactly here - to local sysops and not to stewards. So... Taking in view I trying to contest exactly local block [however still made by active steward] how can I and who have I ask to investigate and resolve a obvious conflict, I never started, with active steward who used local [meta-wiki] sysop user rights to violate basics of WMF-project' policies to continue harrassment (via unapproved continuous blocking) if not making such request exactly here?
Have I divide it [block ID #385231 contest] to separate [from current one] section to be reviewed as is appropriately by exactly local sysop community as I claim it as a basic policies violation and wish it to be cancelled as unapproved?
Or maybe I can communicate through email with someone in case my IP will be blocked again with some unapproved reason? 16:03, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
I'm not going to change that filter for this false positive. Will leave this open for other admins to reply. If you are referencing the block on the IP that opened this thread before being blocked, it isn't listed as a steward block so yes an admin can reply - this is certainly not a matter for the WMF Trustees - but if you want to contact them you can use their postal mail contacts listed at <>. — xaosflux Talk 16:12, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Hmmm... Your abuse filter rule set is some way weird you know. While trying to comment previous topic I was affected by... New (subjected) abuse filter rule! That told me the next:

Your action has being spam or advertising...If you believe that the edit you wanted to make was the Submit button again to confirm it

but after "clicking again" the "submit button" I received that text:

This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator

so then... I'm informing you I can't inform you about above-mentioned topic situation because of current topic situation took place...

What can you propose to resolve such (quite strange) situation? Thank you in advance195.138.83.146 22:28, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

If you get the warning and don't make a change then expect to get a later part of the filter if it is set that way. Explained further to user at user talk page. Not proposing any change to filter.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:06, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
