No more, but I may have changed my IP before the block was over (it's dynamic). I think the "global IP block exemption" could be useful if this spambot reappears. Thanks. Nebogipfel (talk) 22:15, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
If your IP is dynamic, I'd say the chance of you being trapped in another block again would be low - it wasn't a range block anyway. So if that does happen, please visit SRGP, otherwise I don't think block exemption is needed at this moment. Marked as closed. Bencmq (talk) 03:34, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Russian crosswiki spam has been occuring for a few weeks and has used several IP ranges such as this one, but also 91.204.251.0/24, 151.0.16.0/20 or 151.0.25.*** (there may be a few others). I also would suggest those IP ranges be checkusered. --Nebogipfel (talk) 11:45, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Have you got example of these, as I don't see evidence that this range is tied in, rDNS of some of the IPs doesn't show anything, and a search at robtex shows differing answers http://www.robtex.com/dns/4proxy.de.htmlbillinghurst sDrewth 14:26, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
4proxy.de does not actually use what you get from rDNS for what appears when you edit. It's now switched to being used by 3proxy.de, see this.--Jasper Deng (talk) 16:59, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
At this point of time I do not see IP addresses from the broader /21 spamming us, so I have conservatively just block the rDNS for 3proxy.de (37.157.249.35). We can broaden if the abuse remains. — billinghurst sDrewth 17:25, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
Uh, this may need to be looked at. The /19 is blocked on enwiki.--Jasper Deng (talk) 18:58, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
Traditionally we have not proactively blocked IP ranges solely based upon they are blocked elsewhere. At this stage an evidence base would be preferred before taking further action, and I don't see the evidence for blocking a /21. — billinghurst sDrewth 09:13, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Global lock for Japan Football

Status:    Not done

Crosswiki disruption/vandalism. After many offers of help and then warnings, Japan Football was blocked for one week on Simple English Wikipedia User talk. When prevented from disrupting Simple, the user went Fiji Hindi Wikipedia and began adding hundreds of similar pages there. These pages are vandalism and not simple disruption because they are mainly written in a language other than that of the wiki. The first sentence is translated into Fiji Hindi, but the rest of the (minimal) content of all of these pages is in English. See JF's recent changes in the context of the total New Changes. I contacted the editor and asked them to stop, but the editor refuses-see Fiji Hindi User Talk. I am asking here because it seems there is only one admin on that very small wiki. I attempted to contact that admin, and left a message on the Admin Noticeboard but there has been no response. At this rate, the Fiji Hindi wiki will be largely minimal football stubs written mainly in English, most of them BLP's without references. Thanks, Gotanda (talk) 00:11, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

This is when a true global block is needed. I think the user should be notified by e-mail if locked, or if that's not possible, blocked by a bot on all wikis.--Jasper Deng (talk) 04:03, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Personally, I'd support locking. Editing and creating articles en-masse in wikis where you don't know the languages is disruptive IMO. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 09:51, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
This claim is a wrong claim. For example, please see hif:South Pacific Games Football - 2007. In Fiji Hindi language, there are many words that are spelled same as English. Do you block me under the wrong claim? --Japan Football (talk) 12:19, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Your statement is incorrect. That article was simply not translated by the users. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 15:31, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

No comment on the global lock, but I will say this:

  • In the 12 days of editing on hifwiki so far, the user has created 923 articles. This is an average of 77 articles per day, and from a glance through the contributions history, about one article every two minutes he's online. Almost all of the pages are for obscure footballers in Japanese clubs. A generic opening sentence ("[name] Japan ke football ke ek khilaarri hae") is the only content in the project's language. Everything else is in English, though they're all just statistics. See here for a typical example.
  • This has brought the total number of articles on this wiki has from 8,780 to 9,703, which means just less than 10% of the articles on this wiki are now statistics about obscure Japanese footballers.
  • This was a problem for a small wiki like simplewiki. For hifwiki, a project with just one (semi-active) admin and a very small potential for growth in user numbers, it's chaos. If one also considers that the user doesn't appear to even speak the language, and that this wiki has enough problems already with the usual spam and vandalism seen on projects that are (dare I say) verging on the edge of closure, then at the very least the user needs to blocked locally.

Osiris (talk) 15:24, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

I concur with Osiris's statement and we should apply a local temporary block, and we can then look to resolving the issue with the editor and also to look to how the existing community wishes for those edits to be managed. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:35, 30 April 2012 (UTC)d
I would endorse a lock. 913 partially-translated Japanese footballer stubs is ridiculous and disruptive, in my opinion. -Orashmatash (talk) 16:11, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Locally blocked (hifwiki) at this time and started a conversation to see whether we can get self-regulation. — billinghurst sDrewth 16:17, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, everyone, for your attention on this. Of course, it is best to handle things locally, but I didn't want to see one user cause this much trouble for a small and struggling wiki. Much appreciated. Gotanda (talk) 02:28, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
And to note that there was no inference on my behalf. I am more hoping that the user is heeding our words and learning, and preventing further issues and the more severe consequences of future actions. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:30, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

A user on svwiki has a long block (~1 year left) and he was recently blocked from using wiki-mail. This user is now using his global account to mail admins and others on svwiki. (Other actions has also been made, like telephone calls and SMS.) No other abuse of his global account is obvious in his last actions globally. Is this enough to lock the account? --Lavallen 16:32, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

He's only temporarily blocked on one project and has many contributions to other projects. This would not be the right circumstance for a Global Block. If he is being abusive via email on other projects, you should try contacting admins there or global admins if there are no local admins. MBisanz talk 03:25, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
