@علاء: That vandal usually goes crosswiki, so I assumed it would this time. You're right about the IPV4 ranges but there's one edit in the IPV6 range on the Russian Wikipedia. I've never figured out how to check range contribs globally but I've checked other wikipedias (de, fr, es, pt, etc.) and haven't found any of their edits ...

Seeing repeated xwiki hits through log/spamblacklists for IPs in this range, though I also think that it may be 192.162.164.0/22. If we are able to block it for an extended period without negative consequences, I think that it will have benefits.

Status:    Not done

This is a follow-up to [[Steward_requests/Global/2018-10#Global_block_for_IPv6_range_240[59]:*]]. I strongly believe that all subnets mentioned in the previous request should be blocked as well rather than just the three picked out, especially since the above two in this request, not falling under the list from the previous request, are sources of this spam as well. @Horcrux and Trijnstel: Mahir256 (talk) 06:46, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

I should check for collateral, but as a general comment I'm usual not in favor of blocking such huge IPv6 ranges. Trijnsteltalk 10:08, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: The newest incarnation of this spam is on the Romani Wikipedia. You may wish to check whether "User:Wikiromanadm" is the same individual. Mahir256 (talk) 15:36, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Status:    Done

Hello, a few minutes ago on oldwikisource, 198.237.49.220 has been reverted about fifty times for vandalism, the corrections have just ended with several contributors. I realize that this IP changes project as soon as it is blocked. There are 15 different projects and it is blocked on 11 projects already. This IP has not changed for a month and a half. It seems appropriate to block it globally before seeing it land on another wiki as soon as he/she gets bored (with an annual school blocking minimum). This will relieve the patrollers.

This is an obvious sock puppet of User:Charliewolf79. This kind of goes back a while, so I'm not sure how familiar anyone is with the case any more. Charliewolf79 is a globally locked sockmaster who is obsessed with Bruce Lee articles, especially on itwiki and itwikiquote, but his disruption tends to go global. His latest thing is "La Storia" (see it.wikiquote, itwiki). This follows previous disruption from Charliewolf79 socks about "The Story" (enwikiquote, enwiki). Mangacu also edits many articles Charliewolf79 socks created ([15] and [16]; [17] and [18]; [19] and [20]), and Mangacu sometimes edit wars to restore Charliewolf79's work ([21] and [22], [23]).

Note, there was a change in behavior which implies that he is not a bot. However, the actions carried out have implied that he is intentionally pushing anti-policy article changes and those changes are detrimental to the quality of articles (including unnecessary changes to navbox and other related issues). There is a high possibility for this kind of vandalism to occur at other projects (en.wikiversity / zh.wikiversity) due to his actions. Note to others: this is a Taiwan IP and his behavior looks like a long term abuser at the zhwiki though not confirmed.--1233 | Questions?| This message is left by him at 18:37, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Update: after comparing the IP addresses Xayahrainie43 used to evade blocking at enwiki with the IP ranges that LTA using at zhwiki and behavior comparison at zhwiki, we now consider that the link between Xayahrainie43 and that LTA to be around Likely Likely, thanks.--無聊龍 (talk) 04:45, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Note to stewards: I ran into this editor while investigating two other sockmasters and have documented him some here. He shares the same ranges as one of those sockmasters so it may be worthwhile to also look into those cases as well so that the other sockmaster is not viewed as collateral damage. The two other sockmasters are chasing each other around different wiki projects and engaged in nationalistic edit warring.

I've done these as I believe your request is correct and within protocol. Note, however, that Ida Scott (WMNO) has extensive edits on the account and has clearly been using it for general editing. It may be that a Global Rename for them (and anyone else requesting it) is an appropriate action. QuiteUnusual (talk) 12:53, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
@QuiteUnusual: Thanks! The edits from Ida's account were part of a project in cooperation with the National Library of Norway to get more content about women onto Wikidata/Wikipedia, so even if they seem general (i.e. are in the main namespace) they were actually part of the job. She usually edits as User:IdaScott as a volunteer. :-) Jon Harald Søby (WMNO) (talk) 13:48, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

@Masti:. I don't understand the lock at all. Pardon me. I think this can be an LTA but it isn't obvious, if by BEANS things cannot be stated clearly, then I'll email you. For inappropriate username that implies shared use, there isn't 8888 TV station in either Malaysia or Singapore. And also, zhwiki had block them indef, yes, but it's with autoblock disabled. I.e. it's a promotional username block (which I also disagree anyway but the name is annoying enough, so I leave it). They are free to recreate an account in this case, it's a softblock. Then, what are the grounds for lock? Regards. --Cohaf (talk) 19:16, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
