Request for global (un)block

Unblocking of 68.221.207.33 and 68.221.204.132/20

Status:    Not done

Yes, I am Pickbothmanlol.

Specifically, I am one of many people who have chronically trolled numerous wikis, notably the English version of Wikipedia. Recently, Wikimedia globally blocked this IP, and thus, I have decided to repent for my past colourful actions for good by any means possible.

This whole mess started as a joke for a Newgrounds topic. One of our members was bickering about homebrew still being supported on the PSP using official firmware, and I decided to link him to a article. Normally, that was all I was going to do until I had an idea pop in my head about making a joke that pointed to an moderator on Newgrounds.

After the first account was banned (I think it was A1a2s but I haven't checked the history.), the vandalism became a bad habit. I would troll, or attempt to vandalize pages just to get a frantic reaction from Wikipedians. Eventually, it became a daily routune at the start of 2009.

I'm done for good, and will never again vandalize Wikipedia. I realized what my vandalism was taking away from others. If someone had vandalized the pages I needed, I would have likely failed out of High School. I hope to eventually contribute to this shared knowledge for the benefit of more than just my warped humour.

I don't expect most of you to believe me and infact I expect most of you to start calling me a troll and reverting for the lulz, but at least I can rest easy knowing that I've moved beyond this childish behavior. 68.221.207.33 20:57, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Please read if you are convinced by the above. It is taken from Willy on Wheels's request from 2005 with small alterations. Ottava Rima 18:52, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

unblock 193.206.126.34

Status:    Not done

Again I request unblock of IP 193.206.126.34 because it's part of 50 computers in a national library in Italy where thousands different persons connect every day: 1 year global block is by user:M7 for insults but from solo guy in single language. I would like edit for support your project but it's impossible because this IP is static in all computers here in national library; evidence: see http://toolserver.org/~chm/whois.php?ip=193.206.126.34

To all admins I assert: I am not Italian but I am Croat and my name is Milan! You check: http://toolserver.org/~luxo/contributions/contributions.php?user=193.206.126.34 all edits from IP are valid and no vandalism! Evidence examples: 1 and 2 Admins M7 and Vituzzu where found insults? They can block IP in site of insults but 1 year global block is absurd and punitive for thousands different persons who connect in a national library free open for people's use! Consider this point: why punish guys who simple want to edit and develop wikipedia like as me?

You vandalised pt.wiki, it.wiki, en.wiki and simple.wiki (here some sockpuppet of yours): aren't these cross-wiki vandalisms?. Please don't lie you're italian but even if you were croatian you'd be just a troll. Thousands of users? It seems that just two people are using this ip, you and sometime (really rarely) another non-vandal one, please stop lying. --Vituzzu 14:18, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

first of all you don't know me because I am an old editor since 2002 in several languages: sure I am older editor than you are! Do you understand? You must respect my effort and I don't tolerate your insults and personal attacks:

  • lier
  • vandal
  • troll
  • personator

when, why, where, who? You have no evidence for these insults against me! Do you met me in a place of this planet? And when, why, where, who? Do you watch me on your computer? But who are you: Supreme Court? Refrain to insult unknown guy! I usually edit unlogged by different computers. As well users Sir Floyd and Luigi28/Presbite are not sockpuppet!

I think you've made your point now. Please wait for a steward to look into this case. Thank you. Wutsje 15:11, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
That's clear, in fact Presbite is free to help the growth of it.wiki. Dai hai ammesso tutto qui, non serve continuare a mentire. --Vituzzu 15:13, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

this section is in English: use this language! I started over 1.000 new articles in six languages: Vituzzu you did many articles start? Who is Filipponio: your brother?

Evidence of disruption from this IP has already been provided, other findings are CU related and can be seen in part on SP lists and common interests for IVO/PIO/Tamburellista/Darius etc. --M/ 15:36, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Six languages? I can rember just three (pretending to belive you're croatian), any reference for your words? Filipponio is a sock of yours. Now that your lies have been exposed as such, I (or we) can safely stop here, unless we are willing to waste time and space in order to expose a troll as such, as well. --Vituzzu 15:44, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
  • @Stewards, can this be declined per M7? In other case, can someone run CU to verify again? Looks like long discussion is coming up.--WizardOfOz talk 15:59, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
  • X mark.svg Not done per m7--Nick1915 - all you want 14:27, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

I don't understand: Nick1915 are you responsable? It's impossible discuss with M7 and Vituzzu: they are like as a wall probably because they were insulted by an Italian user but global block by M7 is against all rules of this project! My question is: were insults in Portuguese section? If it's so, you can block this IP only in Portuguese section because sure IVO/PIO/Tamburellista/Darius/etc. never will edit in Croat or Chinese language but in this national library there are also Chinese and Croat guys like as me too! Global block by M7 is against growth of wikipedia: in this national library we are 30 guys who want to collaborate for this project! If you persist in this nonsense block, we 30 guys will edit a sort of petion in 30 different languages. I usually edit in these languages: Croat, Serb-Croat, Simple Eng., English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French--Milan7 14:30, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Really strange things happen at a library in Bari (yes, Bari). 30 different people willing to *edit* Wikimedia projects in 30 different languages! Somehow, that's always the same attitude shown here, with similar lexicon. Maybe that's just the same one person? --M/ 14:49, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

your link is evidence of situation in Bari: Bravo! The point is not if I and linked editor are solo guy but: I and IVO/PIO/Tamburellista/Darius/etc. are different persons!

  • @Stewards, in this case CU is total unreliable because we are 30 guys with same IP!

Block IP 71.51.79.126

Please see this edits. I think it is crosswiki spam. Vasiľ 21:33, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done All spam was done within 15 minutes. If the spammers comes back, we can see whether blocking is an option, but for now I don't want to risk blocking what could be a dynamic ip, an internet connection that they used just once or somesuch. - Andre Engels 07:26, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Unblock 68.221.192.59

Status:    Not done

I was trying to edit the "Development of Windows Vista" article to have another picture on it, but it told me that my IP was blocked. I tried editing my talk page to appeal the block but I was blocked from editing my own talk page (linuxlove8088). I haven't done any malicious acts nor do I plan to. If I do, then most likely it will be someone who has hacked my account. So... Could I get this IP unblocked? Thanks.

X mark.svg Not done This ip is not globally blocked. I guess there is a local block, in which case you also have to ask for unblocking (or getting an ipblock exempt) locally. - Andre Engels 21:12, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

A problem

Status:    Not done

I am editing from a neighborhood in Alabama that has been blocked for the reason "sock vandals". I have no idea how long it has been in effect but considering that who ever did it were bored teenagers that long forgotten about Wikipedia, can't you unblock the range? 68.221.199.166 22:49, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Like the one above, this address is not currently globally blocked. Either the block is local, or it has already been lifted or ended. Nothing we can/should do either way. - Andre Engels 21:21, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Unblock User:samwaltz

Status:    Done

I am a formerly active editor of the English Wikipedia. I am currently living in the Empty Quarter - and, needless to say, I want to get more involved in Wikipedia again (because, yes, there's just as much social life here as the name suggests). However, the problem I have encountered is that there has been so much vandalism from this IP range that there has been a general block implemented. I am unable to start new articles. I can, however, still make edits. Will someone please fix this. 195.229.235.39 19:03, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Erk. To make matters more complicated, I'm being automatically logged off. Some of the changes I've been prevented from making have happened while not logged in. *shrug* I'll check things out from my side. Samwaltz 19:12, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
Hello Samwaltz. Which IP address/range is currently being affected by a global block? Thank you, — Dferg (talk) 17:23, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't believe he was blocked, he wrote creating a new article was not possible but editing existing ones was, that sounds like he was editing not logged in because afaik in en.wiki creating new articles for IPs is not possible. Best regards, --geimfyglið :^╡ 17:28, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
My bad, the IP from the user posted the first time is currently blocked. I'm going to ask the blocking steward wether we can switch from HB to SB. — Dferg (talk) 14:30, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
I would be in favor - I think this is a case of the "open proxy behind closed proxy" phenomenon (that is, someone had their computer in use as an open proxy, but is himself behind a regular proxy, and blocking what seems to be an open proxy in reality blocks much more). - Andre Engels 21:33, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - I've changed the settings of the block so that registered users are not affected. If you have further issues, let us know. Best regards, — Dferg (talk) 23:45, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Unblock request on Wikiversity (User:Thekohser)

  • Sorry for this being out of format, etc., but the process of governance on the English Wikiversity is currently collapsing. I am hoping that a Meta Steward could please review whether "cross-wiki issues" is a blockable offense, and please make a determination if the process by which Jimmy Wales has intervened (beyond my particular case) in Wikiversity (de-sysopping an admin, blocking another good-faith user, then restoring their rights, but with conditions that dictate that Jimmy maintains supremacy on content issues) is within his remit? Thank you. -- Thekohser 14:52, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
    Note - I provided Thekohser a system in which he could produce the material he says he wants to add to Wikiversity from his user talk space. If it turns out that he is honest in that desire, that will be used as evidence in reconsidering his block. If his block is then not overturned, he was offered to have a proxy that would move content from his user talk to article space so he could continue to produce content while still blocked. At this time, I am unwilling to unblock Thekohser. Ottava Rima (talk) 14:57, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
Crosswiki issues is a blockable offense (stewards globally block and lock for this all the time), but in this case, Jimmy is claiming working on behalf of the board, and in that case, your issue should be adressed to the board or the Foundation staff. Stewards can't override the board or the foundation, so this request is X mark.svg Not done. Laaknor 15:00, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
Jimbo considers thekohser "globally banned". -- Adrignola 18:47, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Unblock request for logged-in users from 209.221.90.204

Status:    Done

I was attempting to edit an article on en on a logged-in account from which I make constructive edits - the message that I got was that this IP address, registered to York Region District School Board, has been globally blocked for being a vandal. While that may be so, I have seen no indication that this block was meant to prevent students from editing while logged in. As long as anon editing and account creation are blocked, it has worked in the past as a deterrent for vandalism from YRDSB students. I'd just like to edit at school, and I have no problem - nay, embrace - using an account to do so. 209.221.90.204 16:32, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

I lowered the block level to anons only. THat specific ip has been the source of several harassing sockpuppets for couple of months. es:Drini 16:36, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
Here's an edit to show that I am indeed editing from this IP. I am the SUL owner of the name and this account was registered when I confirmed it. Arcendet 16:36, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
I lowered the block level so it would only affect anons and disallow creating new accounts for a while. es:Drini 16:38, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
I must be slow. Thank you! Arcendet 16:38, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Request for unblocking IP 86.83.155.44 and User:D.A. Borgdorff

Status:    Not done

Due to a recent change in the policy on nl.wikipedia, blocked users should now be able (there has been a vote on this) to use their User Talk page for commenting on blocks of their account. Unfortunately the mentioned user is currently blocked globally, so he is not able to comment on his current block on the nl.wiki. I request unblocking this user, so at least he is able to comment on his native nl.wikipedia User talk page on the current block. If the user abuses his talk page after a possible unblock of that page the nl.wiki admins can block him from editing there with ease. I plea for lifting the current blocks, and see if this user is able to contribute in a normal way, and to provide an opportunity for him to comment his current block. If any form of disrupting editing should take place or follows after unblocking he user talk page, this user can be blocked easily again by local admins. Regards, Tjako 15:16, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

You can simply use nl:Special:GlobalBlockWhitelist to remove locally the globalblock, then you can give him a localblock allowing own talkpage editing. --Vituzzu 15:19, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Thnx for the info. I will pass this to the nl.wiki admin crew. Tjako 15:23, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Comment: User:D.A. Borgdorff is not just blocked, but globally locked (for reasons the requester is fully aware of), so that won't work. Wutsje 15:26, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Uhm, I thought whitelisting were always possible. --Vituzzu 15:28, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
A locked user can not log in, see Locked global account. Wutsje 15:34, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
I was dealing with ip, btw taking a look at the edits it's not a great idea. --Vituzzu 15:40, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
In that case I plea for unlocking him -at least- for the nl.wiki, so local policy on nl.wiki can be followed. Regards, Tjako 15:42, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
As Wutsje said it cannot be done, even because so many abuses were done on talkpage. --Vituzzu 15:49, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't see any real 'abusive' edits in the link you provide. Just some clumsy edits. Is that reason for locking a user? Tjako 15:57, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
p.s. Locking is only for certain mentioned reasons; and as far as I can see this user doesn't meet those criteria. That's one aspect. The other aspect is the standing policy on de nl.wiki, where the community decided that blocked users should be able to comment on their block. So I plea for an unlock, and the possibility for Dutch admin's to follow the standing nl.wiki policy : blocked nl:users should be able to comment on their talk page on the nl.wiki. Tjako 16:09, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
Several years of crosswiki damages, among with spam and selfpromotion, fulfills WMF policies about preventive blocks and this user is indeed aware that his behaviour is not tolerable. Many free web space are provided on the Internet and Wikimedia projects and users do not deserve to continue cleaning up original researches, adverts and promos left all around. --M/ 18:54, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Not done. I see no reason to unblock him. Besides that he is actually one of the examples for whom editing the talk page should be blocked. --Erwin 19:09, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Global rollback for Incnis Mrsi

I sometimes repair interwiki pollution made by interwiki bots (incorrect interwikis, which are created usually by making a redirect or just by mistake; see also my essay on interwiki conflicts). In such projects, where I do not have a rollback locally (these latter include en.wiki and ru.wiki), I promise to use this feature against bots only. Cases of pollution by incorrect interwikis could unlikely be resolved through talks with bot owners, because there is a dozen of such bots with almost no coordination, and all bots usually do the same silly thing, they propagate any link which can see in some article of the cluster. Relatively recent example: I started to remove incorrect links, but a filter in ar.wiki deterred me from cleaning its article, and bots brought junks back soon (which I reverted later). I am not a SWMT member, but the problem of interwiki is mainly a problem of large wikipedias, not small ones. Incnis Mrsi 16:57, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello Incnis Mrsi. You have an incompleted SUL account. There is an unattached account on it.wikibooks. IMO it will be better to request local rollback on the wikies where you are working than global rollback. --WizardOfOz talk 17:33, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
First, about b:it:Utente:Incnis_Mrsi. There is an evidence[4] that this account was not created from scratch locally, but was made by the SUL system when I already had a lot of accounts. This “incompleted” account apparently was never renamed and I have no clue when and how it could separate from my SUL – I even did not know that this thing is possible by some way except renaming. Let us ask MW programmers about this case? I do not see any obstacles for my use of rollback in Wikipedia anywise.
There are 53 languages of Wikipedia where I ever edited more than 1 article (those with only one are not counted), in approximately descending order: ru en fr de uk es fi it nl pl cs bg ja zh ko sv eo pt ca id simple no ar tr ro hu he lt sl sr el az fa da ms sk vi ka lv th eu is cy nn mk arz ast bpy be-x-old cv et tt new. About a half of these, if not more, are large- or medium-sized wikis, and I currently have the rollback only in the first two. Of course, I can request rollback separately in yet two dozen of most frequently used, but should we bother the people there? Incnis Mrsi 00:21, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Just try to add it with b:it:special:mergeaccount (note You might need to use an old password if You changed it in the meantime, if You don't remember try password recovery), best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 04:48, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Fixed. I do not know why my password did not match account in b:it, but E-mail password recovering interface (and subsequent change of password) helped. Thanks for “bug report” and advice. Incnis Mrsi 11:51, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Okay, Yes check.svg Granted global rollback. Unanimous support over three weeks time for GR seems adequate for consensus on the matter, I think. Kylu 23:53, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
