Manual requests

Deletion of the article Hanif Sulthoni in Sundanese Wikipedia

Status:    Not done

Dear stewards, can you delete the article Hanif Sulthoni in suwiki? Because it ia a crosswiki spam of a non-notable author. -ArdiPras95 (talk) 04:27, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

There are active administrators. You should ask them. Ruslik (talk) 18:58, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
Marked as not done, per Ruslik0.--Syum90 (talk) 09:49, 8 April 2017 (UTC) sockpuppeteer, second round

Status:    Done

The serial sockpuppeteer, originally registered as user Alex Bass at :slwiki, is at it again. His IP range was blocked last december as per request by Janezdrilc (see the archive). It looks like he managed to circumvent the still active block, perhaps his provider changed ranges - today, a bunch of vandal-only accounts were created, with identical pattern of activity. Incidentally, he forgot to login for a few edits, so he revealed his IP ( which belongs to the same provider as before.

Can someone please check how this new IP relates to the previously used range and advise on how to proceed? Thank you. — Yerpo Eh? 07:11, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done New range blocked. Ruslik (talk) 08:21, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I hope this will be at least as effective. — Yerpo Eh? 08:50, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Delete Wikinews NL user profile

Status:    Done

My old profile information on wikinews NL is still showing up on Google but it's years out of date. Could this page please be deleted? -- Redge (Talk) 09:42, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Ruslik (talk) 19:48, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
Great! Thank you. -- Redge (Talk) 08:19, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Delete Talk page on different Wikipedias which contains IP address apart from English one

Status:    Not done

My gebruiker: is still showing up on Google but could you please removed it or delete it thanks. Until the administrators remove it off there, Thanks. 15:06, 11 April 2017 (UTC).

Only the local administrators on the Dutch Wikipedia can remove the page. But usually talk pages will not be removed without a very good reason. Stryn (talk) 15:38, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Request to approve OAuth consumer for Citation Hunt v1.0

Status:    Not done

Hi! Could you please approve this proposal for a OAuth consumer for Citation Hunt? Thanks! --Surlycyborg (talk) 21:16, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

I see that your tool collects data from users. How is that compliant with the Labs Terms of Use?MarcoAurelio 21:43, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
Oh, you're totally right, thanks for the link! I don't currently collect data, but I planned on storing the user name from OAuth. Let's put this on hold then, I'll look for alternatives. Surlycyborg (talk)
The linked TOU says "Clearly communicate to End Users a) that Private Information is being collected, b) how you will use it, and c) when you will delete it;". That is not a blanket restriction on collecting information. --BDavis (WMF) (talk) 22:34, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Surlycyborg, you say that you don't collect data, however I see a stats module which collects and stores information which is very obviously PPI and should not be stored without a very, very good reason. If this code is no longer needed, remove it ;-). If you must keep that code in the repository, you need to add a very clear "no-user-stats" mode which is enabled by default in production. John Vandenberg (talk) 00:17, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
@Surlycyborg: hi. Any progress? Matiia (talk) 04:07, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi Matiia. If you're wondering about collecting user agents, no, that no longer happens (this is the relevant commit, if you're curious). Regarding the initial request, I'm not currently working on OAuth integration for Citation Hunt, but that's still in the long-term wishlist (that's issue #49, by the way). I just ended up sidetracked into other work, and haven't had the time to come back and figure out how to implement this in conformance to the user data policy on Tools Labs. --Surlycyborg (talk)
It has expired. Please make a new request when you work again on it. Matiia (talk) 01:59, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

editprotected la.wikibooks main page

Status:    Done

Please edit b:la:Pagina prima to:

  • change <div> to </div> at line 42 (to fix the error displayed at b:la:Special:LintErrors/missing-end-tag), and
  • remove the interlanguage links from the wikitext of this page (since they are now maintained on wikidata).

Please, unlock me

Status:    Not done

Please unblock me on this wiki: [1]. I will not do bad. There is no administrator on this wiki. KHMELNYTSKYIA (talk) 14:39, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

@Savh: your block.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:27, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
I am not sure that saying "I will not do bad" is sufficient for unblock. Ruslik (talk) 18:08, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
What can I do to unlock in this wikipedia? KHMELNYTSKYIA (talk) 18:18, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
As a steward acting in lieu of local admins, I believe the abuse sufficiently justified the block, and that there is no legitimate interest in that specific project from this user. I suggest keeping the block in place unless more compelling reasons for unblock are provided, though as the blocking user I am open to review. Savhñ 10:23, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Good. Then unlock me please on this wiki. It's all obvious. I have the correct name and blocking is not correct. I can not maintain contact with local administrators so I ask here. KHMELNYTSKYIA (talk) 18:12, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of improper user page

Status:    Done

Hello, I'm an admin in Thai Wikipedia. This user page contains information about a TV show The Face Men Korea, which is likely an improper use of a user-page per Wikipedia policy. It is not likely to be a test page or used to create an article soon. I'm not able to delete it myself because the page has more than 5,000 revisions. So I request a steward to delete the page. --Horus (talk) 14:16, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Hide personal information completely

Status:    Done

Hi, please hide completely the 12 versions already hidden here [2] (contains personal information about the user) and 2 here [3] (ditto) They are already hidden, but administrators can still see them and I know there is a technical ability to hide them from administrators as well. I apologize, it is the first time I make such a request, thus I am not really sure of the procedure, or where to request it. --Helixitta (talk @ ukWiki) 19:06, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
