There is a total absence of recent legitimate contributions from that IP, on Wikipedia or anywhere. The most recent legitimate edist I found on Wikipedia were in March, 2013, for 96.238.138.* (.214 was the IP for those edits) There was vandalism on .223 in 06/2013. The single IP could surely be globally blocked for a substantial time with low possibility of collateral damage, and possibly a range could be blocked.

I practiced vandalism in the past, with my account Nmgscp1974, but since it was blocked, in 17th November 2013, I never practiced it again. Today, I wrote some controversial information (with a good reason, not with any intention of being controversial), which was not considered vandalism, and, as I was using another account, my IP was blocked by Ponyo. I've already said that I'll be more accurate in my next contributions (particularly about aviation, Portugal, Portuguese economy, global economy, EU, my home town and Cambodia), if my IP is unblocked, of course. I'd thank you if my good recent behaviour would be taken into account. Thanks for your attention. --Nupest (talk) 03:10, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Your ip does not appear to be globally blocked but rather locally blocked on the English Wikipedia by local administrator en:User:Ponyo.

Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding

Global unlock for Japan Football, FootballLibrary

Status:    Done

I had edited some wikipedia as Japan Football (e.g. nlwiki). In September, global lock request has been submitted, and the lock did not done (Steward requests/Global). However, since that time, I have been unable to log in all wikipedia as Japan Football. So, I create ​​a new account FootballLibrary. Today, when I edited my userpage in Dutch wikipedia, I was blocked for reasons of "sockpuppet of global blocked Japan Football" (nlwiki), and I have been unable to log in all wikipedia as FootballLibrary.

When was Japan Football blocked? Which argument was it blocked by? If it (Japan Football) is not global block by a legitimate argument, I want you to unblocking my account; Japan Football and FootballLibrary. --Football JPN (talk) 14:05, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

According to the log, it was locked by Vito. I don't think you really have "abused" or intentionally used sockpuppets. PiRSquared17 (talk) 14:16, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
And now User:Wpedzich has locked your new account for sockpuppetry when you decided to discuss this... strange indeed. PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:48, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

@Football JPN and Wpedzich: I am not a steward, but would you be okay with a final chance? If you violate any wiki's rules or create more accounts, you will be locked. PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:59, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

OK for me, just as I stated in the unlock reason: don't overuse too many accounts, which is considered bad behaviour. Wojciech Pędzich Talk 17:01, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
Okay. But I want you to unblock both Japan Football and FootballLibrary. Because I already had to edit as Japan Football in some wikipedia; e.g. Dutch and French. So, I want to edit as Japan Football in these wikipedia. On the other hand, recently, I edited as FootballLibrary in some wikipedia; e.g. Catalan and Afrikaans. So, I want to edit as FootballLibrary in these wikipedia. --Football JPN (talk) 08:14, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Fine. Unlocked, however, please note that: (a) you should not use two accounts on the same wiki and (b) I request you put a notice on all wikis you edit that you own both accounts (to be periodically checked) and (c) your usage of these accounts has to be in line with policies of each project. Pundit (talk) 08:55, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Okay. --Football JPN (talk) 10:41, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
That was such a bright idea, JapanFootball is simply a vandal who went crosswiki. Warned dozens of times on dozens of wikis he always went on having the same behaviour under many nicknames and IPs. Should I expect a successfull appeal from EVW? --Vituzzu (talk) 18:57, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

I was editing follow other user opinion or community. For example, in Dutch, request for deletion (Deel 3) had been submitted, but they were recognized as articles. So, I had continued to create articles. In Italian, in September, I was said, "Please make articles including source." talkpage So, after that, I did so. It was also reported to discussion. On the other hand, When I can not get the understanding of community, I stopped creating articles (e.g. dewiki, plwiki).

I was editing follow the community. However, Vituzzu did global block ignoring the discussion. The block ignoring the community is clearly illegal. --Japan Football (talk) 11:37, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

When will FootballLibrary be unblocked? --Japan Football (talk) 12:29, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
FootballLibrary is not unblocked yet. Please unblock FootballLibrary too. --Japan Football (talk) 04:58, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Please only use one account. PiRSquared17 (talk) 05:27, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
I agree with PiRSquared17, pick one account to use, and use it, especially as that is the expectation from the Wikipedias. What you should do is place a redirect on the alternate addresses that redirects to your account of choice. That should not be an issue.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:31, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Global lock for User:Diegusjaimes

Status:    Done

During the past days a long list of eswiki abuse accounts have been locked, as can be seen here.

However the main user for those accounts remains unlocked: User:Diegusjaimes.

Among the accounts locked you can see that his bot got locked:

  • User:DiegusjaimesBOT

which, as you can see via CentralAuth is a confirmed bot owned by Diegusjaimes which was locally blocked due to its controller being banned from eswiki: [2]

Due to the grave abuse by this user with his sockpuppets, it's an omission not to lock the main account and only block the sockpuppets. es:Magister Mathematicae 05:05, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

For the record, the account that just vandalized here (Jaontipedos = Jaonti-fart is a harassig account attacking es:User:Jaontiveros), should be locked as well. es:Magister Mathematicae 05:06, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Additional

Diegusjaimes was globally banned in wikia 5 years ago. Reason: sockpuppetry, vandalism and harassment.

These three sockpuppets say it all:

  • 21:24 3 ene 2014 Barras (Discusión | contribuciones) bloqueó a "Zuirdj-Bola (Discusión | contribuciones)" (desactivada la creación de cuentas) durante un plazo de "para siempre" (cw socking/vandal)
  • 01:10 4 ene 2014 Billinghurst (Discusión | contribuciones) modificó el estado de la cuenta global «User:El Usuario "El bola" es un puutaso@global»: establecido locked; eliminado (none) (Long-term abuse)
  • 01:10 4 ene 2014 Billinghurst (Discusión | contribuciones) modificó el estado de la cuenta global «User:Bola el dictador de la GTE@global»: establecido locked; eliminado (none) (Long-term abuse)

User:Bola actually is a Wikia Staff, and sysop at es.gta.wikia. Bola blocked Diegusjaimes at es.gta.wikia in February 2009, and then across Wikia.

Yes check.svg Done Locked. --Bsadowski1 (talk) 06:35, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Please unlock or show basis per policy. This lock appears to be contrary to lock policy. The user is blocked on only one wiki, eswiki. The account was not being used for cross-wiki disruption, and such locks only affect an account. They will not interdict the abusive account creation that is claimed to be this user, referring to what was the report above, and that was asserted without conclusive evidence, such as checkuser, and even if that were Diegusjaimes, that was transient. This user made 330094 edits on eswiki. I think I might be angry, too, if I'd put in that much work and was banned. I cannot judge that ban, and it's up to eswiki, but tradition has been to require extensive cross-wiki disruption before taking the very serious step of a global lock, which amounts to a global ban. There is a global ban process, and it has not been followed. Please reconsider. --Abd (talk) 00:59, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I shouldn't have to say this, but will anyway: that Wikia evidence was totally irrelevant, and ancient history. --Abd (talk) 01:01, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
    @Abd: What gave you the idea that stewards follow policy? ~ DanielTom (talk) 10:30, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Abd, typically we also lock the master account (in this case, Diegusjaimes). I can confirm via CheckUser that DiegusjaimesBOT is indeed a sockpuppet. Do you really want me to unlock a sockpuppeteer and possibly let them vandalize later on? (As they did with other older accounts) --Bsadowski1 (talk) 16:49, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
Well, since you ask, this response would make sense on Wikipedia, as to blocks. It doesn't with global accounts, as to locks. Locking an account has no effect on the ability of a "sockpuppeteer" to "vandalize." It does not prevent new account creation, at all. It does not implement autoblock. If anything, it can increase vandalism, by making it more difficult to detect. It also is widely recognized as a problem with the software, a poor substitute for genuine global blocking of named accounts. Locking is the most intrusive action that can be taken with an account. It prevents a user from accessing their watchlist, from changing their email settings. It's phenomenally rude, in a word. It is appropriate, under present conditions, for extensive cross-wiki spam and vandalism and other major abuse.
I am "community banned" on Wikipedia. Because I'm active on Wikiversity, global login prevents me, routinely, from editing Wikipedia, and autoblock is active. I.e, even if I log out, if I've even looked at Wikipedia while logged in, and recently, I am prevented from editing. Now, suppose I were globally locked. All restriction on editing Wikipedia would disappear. If I wanted to vandalize or POV-push (I don't), whatever is the supposed hazard, I could now do it, losing nothing.
The account Diegusjaimes has not edited anywhere for over a year, and is blocked only on eswiki. User:DiegusjaimesBOT is an obvious disclosed sock (we don't need Checkuser to know that!) and was legitimate, with over 11,000 edits on eswiki, and per the lock request, was only blocked there because Diegusjaimes, with over 300,000 edits, had been blocked, not because of disruptive use of the BOT account (as far as the public record shows). In addition to eswiki, the BOT is only blocked here, a few days ago, the same day of registration (possibly automatic registration). It's not clear to me if this account would have been able to create pages, but might have created revision-deleted edits, but, bottom line, not only is there no major cross-wiki disruption, creating a justification for locking the account, there may not even be minor disruption. Checkuser would only be relevant with regard to a very transient disruption reported previously, here.
An account lock, particularly if it is an action taken against an alleged "master user," is an equivalent of a global ban, and we have a long-standing tradition of not globally banning individuals or locking accounts without extensive cross-wiki abuse. We especially don't lock accounts because of a problem at a single wiki. There is a global ban process, which has not been followed.
The only cross-wiki disruption I've seen alleged here was the creation of abusive user names, on meta. I don't see that checkuser was used then, but, again, a transient event like that, even if confirmed, used to be understood as normal blowing off of steam, unless it became routine and widespread. Notice that Diegusjaimes is not blocked here, and if local policy is followed, would not be blocked, based on evidence that has been presented.
My request, here, was an opportunity for Basadowski to correct an apparent violation of policy and basic global account principles. It's an opportunity for any other steward, or user, for that matter, to look at the global issues. I have no personal interest in Diegusjaimes. I only have a long term concern as to fair treatment of WMF wiki users. If Bsadowsksi had not asked the question, I'd not have responded further here. --Abd (talk) 17:52, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
Relevant policy Global bans. Guideline: Global locks. Should these be changed? What? --Abd (talk) 16:50, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
@Abd: can I suggest that you go and get a better hobby horse to ride. We are all volunteers here, and here to make good edits to a project. That you stand up for the rights of a crosswiki vandal, who is not making good edits, who is harassing good people, and take to criticise people who are here trying to good edits just demonstrates to me that you are losing the plot. You are not taking about fairness, you are nitpicking. Fairness is the person behind that account NOT vandalising users pages, and having to waste my time undoing that crap. Fairness is about application of the rules so that all users can do good edits within the scope of the project.

The user is not globally banned, those accounts are locked and there is a significant difference. The user behind Diegusjaimes has the right to make good edits, and I will support those rights (in a holistic sense); and when they xwiki vandalise and harass their accounts will be locked, and edits reverted. The user Poetlister is globally banned in all incarnations, that is banned, and he will be locked on sight and is not allowed to make any edits. Does that help to differentiate for you?  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:42, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, billinghurst, for your frank acknowledgement that I'm not welcome here. Yes there is a difference, one which can make little practical difference for the user and, obviously, little difference here. "Cross-wiki vandal" is a grossly shallow view of this user, and it wasn't established by clear evidence. It looks like this user is *effectively* banned. Global lock forces the user, if they are going to edit, to create a new account, thus making detection more difficult. Later, I've seen this, it is called "socking." I could write much, but am stopping here, because, it's been clear for a long time, ordinary users are not welcome to monitor and discuss steward actions. The user who commented above has been infinite blocked, by a steward, without discussion or clear warning. I may have need for meta access, because of Wikiversity, and hence I am abandoning my foolish idea that I can otherwise be useful globally. Efforts here are a waste of time. --Abd (talk) 15:36, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
I'll just leave this here:

"Now, I don't know how you can speak from years of experience about blocking policies on Meta but I'm really beginning to find your tone questionable when you start schooling every other admin here on how meta works. I am not happy with your general lack of good faith and your accusative tones towards several long-standing community members here and my friends. Theo10011 20:35, 9 September 2011 (UTC)"

And if you're still confused, replace "admin" with "steward" and "blocking" with "locking". TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 20:21, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Vandalism only account, inserting nonsense into various pages. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 20:55, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

  • This account is not a legitimate target for global lock, based on the above report. There is a one-month block on one wiki only, Commons, and there are only contributions, as far as I can see, on two wikis, Commons and here. The Commons block was based on a warning issued and a block the same day, for inappropriate contributions, which on many wikis, including meta, would result in a warning, not a block. The meta contributions could indeed be consistent with test edits from a clueless newbie. Please follow global lock policy and only globally lock for clear cross-wiki abuse. I will warn the user here. --Abd (talk) 21:57, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Comment Comment (conflicted) This editor just appears to be do some testing or nonsense just on meta wiki, I did not find nor warning, nor any help template. --M/ (talk) 21:58, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
User warned on talk page here. All edits here were creating pages that have been deleted. This may have happened on other wikis. No other wikis have warnings, there is one deletion notice on Commons, no warning of possible block/lock anywhere, until now, here. --Abd (talk) 22:18, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
