Manual requests[edit]

Sl.wiki sockpuppeteer[edit]

Status:    Done

There is a sockpuppeteer on sl.wiki that doesn't seem to be in the mood to stop opening fake accounts. In last two or three years he has opened allmost 100 of them (not even to mention the vandalism). Does anybody have an idea, what to do in this case? --Janezdrilc (talk) 14:28, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Range block? Ruslik (talk) 16:20, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Seems ok. Could you or some other superuser do the check of the IP range and do the block? --Janezdrilc (talk) 17:13, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Ruslik (talk) 13:13, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
While this might be efficient (or at least I hope it will be), it should be noted that the range belongs to a commercial internet provider and might affect other potential users. That's why I, as an admin who most often dealt with him, avoided suggesting this action. — Yerpo Eh? 13:24, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
Do not worry, there are no other users in this range. Ruslik (talk) 17:02, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. I just hope one year will suffice. Something is telling me he will set a reminder to "wake him up" on December 8 2017, or maybe buy a new laptop or ... just do anything possible. --Janezdrilc (talk) 21:28, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Main page technical edit needed on avwiki[edit]

Status:    Done

Please process the edit request at w:av:Обсуждение:БетӀераб_гьумер#HTML5_repair_needed. — xaosflux Talk 16:27, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

Done. Matiia (talk) 16:32, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

Main page edit on kowikt[edit]

Status:    Done

Please replace some phrases on main page of kowikt. Page 1 and Page 2, these pages are now using template:분류. But, actually, that template is unnecessary, because we can replace their function with our own mediawiki grammar. So, these pages should be edited like this:

{{분류|언어}} -> [[:분류:언어|언어]]
{{분류|한국어}} -> [[:분류:한국어|한국어]]

Then after replacing, please delete the template. --Nuevo Paso (talk) 07:54, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

@Nuevo Paso: I've lowered the protection level to semi-protection so you can now do the changes yourself. Please notify us when you have finish in order to restore the protection level in the page again.--Syum90 (talk) 08:45, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, I have edited the main page. Now, It's time to adjunctive page. Nuevo Paso (talk) 05:39, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Since the wiki currently lacks administrators, I do not think it's a good idea to restore full protection, unless we are facing spam/vandalism edits to that page. --Vogone (talk) 05:43, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I'm agree, probably it's better to leave the page semi-protected to let local users to make changes and updates to the page, especially taking into account the fact that almost all the vandalism on this wiki is made by non-registered users. In fact I was thinking on proposing Nuevo Paso to start a discussion on the community regarding to this, so for now we'll leave the page semi-protected unless the local community decide to fully-protect the page again. @Nuevo Paso: This template is also semi-protected now.--Syum90 (talk) 08:36, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Ok, I will start to discuss about this issue on local wiki. Anyway, all pages have edited, it's done. Nuevo Paso (talk) 13:38, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Closing as done, leaving the protection levels as is. Savhñ 14:01, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Request to approve OAuth consumer for OpenStreetMap[edit]

Status:    Done

Please approve https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:OAuthListConsumers/view/5b8c8401beebb2e3cad15c997643db03 which will allow logging in to OpenStreetMap using a wikimedia account. The "allow callback" flag also needs to be set to yes but I don't seem to be able to change that so could you do it? or should I make a new application? --TomH72 (talk) 10:47, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Already Yes check.svg Done. Ruslik (talk) 19:30, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Revocation of sysop rights[edit]

Status:    Not done

I request the revocation of the rights of inactive sysops q:fr:User:Altrensa and q:fr:User:Myrddin02 on the small wiki Wikiquote.fr by this process. --Mɔʁfipnɔs (talk) 11:54, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

@Morphypnos: Hi, requests concerning permissions should be done at SRP. Regards.--Syum90 (talk) 15:23, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thank you !--Mɔʁfipnɔs (talk) 16:59, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

U1 deletion request for user pages on locked wikis[edit]

Status:    Done

Would it be possible to make a U1 deletion request for my user pages on two locked wikis? User pages are at 1, 2. Also a UTP at 3 with only a welcome message - if that could be U1ed as well, that would be great. Local deletion policies are at 1, 2; both allow for U1 deletion.

Thanks in advance! It Is Me Here (talk) 16:28, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

Done all. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 16:35, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
