Please lock my user and talk page
Can you please protect my user and talk pages on Meta and Commons, so that IP-users cannot edit it anymore? I recieved rape-threats and horrible personal attacks from an LTA IP-user, who is known on the Croatian Wikipedia for doing such things, but also leaking private informations of users that remove his vandalism. The IP has countless times been globally blocked.
- Done Meta user page is protected by abuse filter, akin to ongoing soft protection. I have protected your metawiki user talk page here for a month. Commons requests would need to be actioned by Commons admins, rather than by requests here to meta administrators for metawiki business. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:18, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Logging in to alswiki
I know it says meta-only, but I have to report an error on alswiki. Plus, I don't speak Alemannic German, so it would be harder to get a response. I could not log in to alswiki and I see an unexpected message:
Auto-creation of a local account failed: This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Inappropriate username
How is AJ1m3,zsd. an inappropriate username? Even if it is, it should have stopped me from creating this account in the first place. I believe this message is in error and would like it removed. But the problem is I cannot log in to alswiki and I would like help. --AJ1m3,zsd. (talk) 03:31, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
- No doubt this is a wrong place. But FYI: An local abuse filter is stopping you from creating local account. Pinging Holder. -- CptViraj (talk) 03:38, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
- Indeed the creator seems to be community banned in ja.wikipedia for WP:CIR and WP:DISRUPTIVE issues, as well as refusing to listen. The user seems to be doing the same unproductive edits as in jawiki (ref.) and the BRfA has no way it would pass. I'm tempted to delete it as patent nonsense and either warn the user or simply block and move along. Thoughts? —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:41, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
