Manual requests

OAuth approval request for <Chlambase.org>

Status:    Done

Your comments -- Chlambase.org, a fork of wikigenomes.org, aims to assist chlamydia research by organizing and displaying chlamydia genomic data, and provides tools to better annotate the pathogen's processes. I would like to ask for oauth authorization so researchers can use mediawiki to assist with their studies. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Djow2019 (talk)

OAuth approval request for Wikidata Shape Expressions Inference

Status:    Done

As part of my master’s thesis, I am working on a tool that will let users infer shape expressions from a set of exemplary Wikidata items. Since the inference process is fairly expensive, this to some degree constitutes providing access to significant Cloud Services resources to users, so I need to be careful not to violate Toolforge rule 6; the most important part of that is to restrict to tool to users authenticated via OAuth, which is what this consumer is for (just to verify their identity; the tool will not perform edits or do anything on-wiki, at least not the initial version). The tool is still a work in progress, but I have to propose this consumer to even get started with implementing the OAuth; however, I can test with my own account for a while, so if you want, you can wait for some days before approving the consumer. (And yes, I will contact the Toolforge admins before announcing the tool more publicly, to make sure I’m not violating rule 6.) --Lucas Werkmeister (talk) 11:14, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Myeuurn, Baka Líte, Gioniiiiii

Status:    Not done

I am reporting a case of long term abuse and cross-wiki vandalism. Users Myeuurn's and Baka Líte's accounts have been globally blocked ("Long-term abuse") like 4 of the proxy IP ranges they have been using to log in and edit (66.160.0.0/16, 64.71.128.0/18, 72.52.64.0/18 and 74.82.0.0/18) while Gioniiiiii has been blocked for sockpuppetry in it.wikipedia less than one hour after the account was created. I would like stewards to control whether the sockmaster of these sockpuppets is an Italian user named Ninonino. My suspect is that this user chose to use proxies and socks to edit lately in order not to be recognised nor detected, if he had thought his edits were right then he would have used his real account to do them instead of hiding himself behind open proxies and undeclared socks, besides normal IPs from Northern Italy. There is also another likely sock, Fulgencio Kokomeci, but he made just 6 edits and was not blocked. Probably there is no need for a checkuser request, because the evidences connecting Ninonino to the other accounts and IPs are too manifest. I am providing some differences between revision which link the socks, the proxy IPs, the normal IPs and Ninonino to each others:

  1. Myeuurn is 66.160.188.86
  2. Myeuurn is 151.34.69.186
  3. 151.34.19.233 is 66.160.178.43
  4. Baka Líte is 72.52.87.71
  5. 151.36.36.227 is 74.82.17.89
  6. 151.82.52.48 is Ninonino
  7. 151.68.133.185 is 195.206.3.188
  8. 195.206.3.188 is Ninonino
  9. 195.206.3.188 is Ninonino
  10. 195.206.3.188 is Ninonino
  11. Gioniiiiii is Ninonino and 195.206.3.188

As you could see, the user is obsessed with final accents in Italian names, specially for Berté/è, he usually edits the same pages in different wikis rollbacking whoever reverts him, that is edit-warring. Examples 1 and 2 are just there to show the identicalness of edits made by one of the socks and a proxy IP plus a normal IP. In example 3 he rollbacks a Portuguese admin. Examples 4 and 5 are there to show another pair of proxies he has used in the past for the same edits. Example 6 shows that Ninonino himself made identical edits to one of those normal IPs. Example 7 is the most interesting: on the 23rd of January he wrote a message with static IP 195.206.3.188 at 09:12; 6 minutes later he deleted that message; at 09:49 he came back and rewrote the same comment with a dynamic IP: this means he did not want his message to be connected with IP 195.206.3.188, which is the main IP used by Ninonino to log in and edit (see next point). Exemples 8, 9 and 10 are the ultimate evidence, since IP 195.206.3.188 himself signs "Ninonino" and even declares "I'm Ninonino" while Ninonino himself declares "195.206.3.188 and Ninonino is always me". In example 11 you can see that the 3 users refer to the ISTAT (the Italian institution of statistics) as to the only correct source for final accents in Italian names. The Italian comune he is most obsessed with is Portobuffolé: Ninonino a pair of years ago made a personal cross-wiki war against the correction of the accent, which was finally corrected in every wiki but in Lombard wiki which is his home wiki, but even today he keeps trying writing the uncorrect spelling in other wikis, as you can see here. If it walks like a duck... That is not all, because through his socks and anonymous IPs he did also some unequivocally inappropriate or even disruptive edits: removing section title - removing content - deforming content - further deforming - disrupting a wikiling. These were just some examples. Well, in the light of all this I suppose you will agree with me about the likelihood of this connection and that it is the case to at least give it a try and investigate. As I said probably there is no need for a checkuser request but, in case, it would provide for sure the overwhelming evidence. I just hope you will not ignore this case, I have given you all the information you may need about the very very likely identity of the original "Long-term abuser". Gheorghiosan (talk) 15:30, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

@Gheorghiosan: Thank you for your detailed report - I've read it and I believe you are asking the following:
  1. I would like stewards to control whether the sockmaster of these sockpuppets is an Italian user named Ninonino
  2. You would like confirmation/investigation that the IPs/Users you have listed are the same person
  3. You would like action to prevent this abuse (global block/locks)
As you may be aware, we cannot publicly link an IP address to a user's account - we can however have a look at these IPs/Users and see if they warrant any global block/global locks.
To help us better understand your request, could you summarise what you would like us to do in one sentence? Again, thank you for taking the time to report this to us, and I do apologise we have not responded sooner. Your efforts are very appreciated - TNT 💖 07:06, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
@There'sNoTime: Thank you for reading my report. I'll try summarising my request. The 3 points you've underlined are what I'm asking stewards: to verify that the sockmaster is Ninonino, to verify that Fulgencio Kokomeci is another sockpuppet (and to verify whether there're others hidden behind those proxy or normal IPs), to take measures against the users involved in this case of sockpuppetry. In one sentence, I'd like a steward to verify the information I've provided through the differences between revisions and, once verified, to establish if a connection among all these identities (blocked sockpuppets, non-blocked suspicious users, blocked proxy IPs, non-blocked Italian IPs, Ninonino) is probable (on my humble opinion, it's more than evident); in case stewards establish it, I hope that measures will be taken, since both using open proxies and abusing sockpuppets is forbidden, and the fact that such actions have been going on for so long makes this a serious case. I don't know if it's possible for checkusers to use their tools for Ninonino himself, because he's not been logging in after last december, exactly when the proxies and sockpuppets started being used, but example 7, together with examples 8, 9 and 10, are quite exhaustive and they should be an overwhelming evidence. About the IPs, I know that they can't be publicly connected to users, but I'm not asking stewards to do that, I've just given them a lead to start investigating. If you need further information, don't hesitate to ask me. Gheorghiosan (talk) 15:45, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
@Gheorghiosan: Thank you for the clarification - I had read this and started to take a look, but it appears this will require a lot of investigation. The stewards are limited as to how far we can help, but it appears at the very least we'll be able to put in place some global blocks and locks. Please bear with us on this one - TNT 💖 06:55, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
@There'sNoTime: Sure, I'll bear this one with you. The important thing is, and I think we agree, that the LTA's sockpuppets are detected and blocked together with the sockmaster's main account, whoever it is (even if he was someone else than Ninonino, but this is very unlikely). Gheorghiosan (talk) 11:11, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
@There'sNoTime: any news here? --Alaa :)..! 11:13, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
I don't think so... Perhaps he's on holidays. Couldn't you solve this request in his place, please? Probably it won't be even necessary a real CU check, it's just about accepting the evidences brought here which link all these identities to each others and to Ninonino, I've provided stewards every information they may need, I think! Gheorghiosan (talk) 11:19, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
This is very old and there's not much we can do, it has stopped. RadiX locked the accounts, so he probably knows something else, but I think we can close this. Nothing to be done here. Matiia (talk) 21:35, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for replying, but you missed the crux of the matter. I didn't open that request for 2 or 3 sockpuppets already blocked, I've opened it for other sockpuppets and for the sockmaster. In short I'm asking to: check if any other sockpuppets were created and used from the 4 proxy IP ranges I listed above that were blocked and that are linked to the already blocked socks (2 suspected accounts to start with are Fulgencio Kokomeci and MbretiBasha); ascertain that the sockmaster is user Ninonino (that wouldn't be difficult considering that I've listed a dozen of links proving the relation between the socks, the proxies, the IPs and Ninonino); taking the measures envisaged for this kind of abuse (which should be indefinite global blocks as it was done with Myeuurn and Baka Líte for the same reasons). Do you think you can make the necessary checks yourself? Gheorghiosan (talk) 15:20, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
CU data is deleted after 90 days, so any CU would be useless here. It's possible Ninonino being the sockmaster (according to your links), but we are talking about a user with more than 20000 edits who hasn't edited for more than 8 months, locking him wouldn't be appropriate, we should find another way to deal with this. We lock accounts to prevent abuse, if the abuse has stopped and we think it won't continue, then no lock is needed. Local communities can take actions, if they think it's needed, of course. Myeuurn and Baka Líte were locked by RadiX as Long-term abuse, so his input would be welcomed before taking any action. Matiia (talk) 20:55, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Okay. I already knew about CU data, infact I didn't open a mere CU request but a more generic request to stewards, because as you said according to my links it's probable Ninonino being the sockmaster. But apart from the sockmaster and his blocking, I've asked other things which can be done. Checking wheter Fulgencio Kokomeci (already detected by a checkuser while investigating Myeuurn and Baka Líte) and MbretiBasha (my suspicion) are other 2 socks, and checking any other socks created or used over those 4 IP ranges (during the last 90 days). Shouldn't this be the standard practice when open proxies related to long-term abusers are blocked? I can't see why nobody has checked this thing yet, are there any difficulties with a basic check over 4 blocked IP ranges and so many evidences? Gheorghiosan (talk) 21:40, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Requester is now locked. Matiia (talk) 20:10, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Need help stopping vandalism in Lithuanian Wiktionary

Status:    Done

The Lithuanian Wiktionary is currently experiencing some repeated vandalism from an anonymous user. They are spamming useless articles and undoing my reverts. See here: [4] (Admittedly, today there have been fewer offending edits, so maybe the anonymous user will just disappear without stirring up too much trouble)

The Lithuanian Wiktionary currently does not have any active users other than myself and there is only one semi-active admin [5] who is rarely seen.

As an ordinary user, I cannot take any measures to stop further vandalism, other than keep reverting those edits. I believe we should delete the spam articles and post a warning on the anonymous user's page or temporarily block them. --Rokas00 (talk) 19:58, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

You can post a warning yourself. As to deletion, please, mark all articles that need deletion with an appropriate template or at least create a list of them. Ruslik (talk) 20:31, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
@Rokas00: so? --Alaa :)..! 11:16, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
I marked those articles with a deletion template but the user in question simply keeps removing it. As for posting the warning myself, I can definitely do it, but what's the point? One, the user keeps changing their IP address - they have edited from seven different IPs over the past few days. If you check this list here [6], you can see edits from different IPs in articles named something like "Tukas ir dagilė", "Tuko pelės ir dagilės pelės" or something similar. All of this is garbage, it doesn't mean anything in Lithuanian.
Second, if a warning could help, no such warning would be needed in the first place because a reasonable person wouldn't be vandalizing WIktionary like that anyway. However, if an official warning is a must, I can post one. Rokas00 (talk) 19:51, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
Edit: I see it was actually me who came up with the idea of issuing a warning to the user. Well, now I do think a warning won't help here. Blocking the anonymous user seems a more reasonable measure in this case. Of course, that's just my opinion, you probably know better about the preferred way of handling such issues. Rokas00 (talk) 19:58, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
@Rokas00: Sveikas! Looking at the edits, I have to agree with you they are a little strange. However, I'm not quite sure what to do with the templates that IP user has created/overwritten. Also, some pages (like the one on families) look more like clueless/experimental edits rather than vandalism, while other pages are nonsensical. Since you are the only active user, you are also the best one to judge what happens to these templates. Therefore, I would suggest you apply for adminship on the wiki (wikt:lt:Vikižodynas:Kandidatavimas į administratorius) and shouldn't there be any objections within the next 2 weeks (which is unlikely to happen on a near-dead wiki) a steward will grant you admin rights for a limited time period upon request at SRP. --Vogone (talk) 21:48, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
@Vogone: Sveikas! Thanks for cleaning up and temporarily blocking the anonymous vandal. I hope that will be enough to stop the disruption and make them rethink what they're doing. About those templates they created - I will look into this and decide what should happen to those templates by my best knowledge (though admittedly, I don't feel entirely confident about the technical stuff in the templates). Still, judging by the fact numerous template changes happened at the same time as this other vandalism, I'm pretty sure the template changes are also part of it.
Thanks for the advice about requesting adminship rights. I also think that is a good idea given the fact the Lithuanian Wiktionary is lacking a more active admin supervision. Rokas00 (talk) 17:51, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Just for record, this issue can now be safely considered resolved. I have posted my application for admin rights at the Lithuanian Wiktionary, and was granted these rights by one of the bureaucrats/admins of the Lithuanian Wiktionary. Rokas00 (talk) 19:42, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

Cross-wiki USB-C changes 2018-08-08

Status:    Not done

Cross-wiki rename without talking and sometimes against explicit consensus.

2018-08-08 a user from frwiki after a dispute in frwiki moved USB-C pages in several Wikipedias. The user also altered labels in Wikidata and edited articles in other Wikipedias. The user even went so far to request deletion of redirects from USB-C to the new title, potentially creating broken incoming external links. He knows https://www.google.com/search?q=%22USB-C%22+site%3Ausb.org : "USB Type-C™ and USB-C™ are trademarks of USB Implementers Forum." [7], i.e. that both are official names.

More important the common name is the relevant name for articles in several Wikipedias.

Note: etwiki talk "USB-IF ei taha, et seda tõlgitaks, ja soovitab kasutada USB Type-C või USB-C. Eestlastele suupärasem variant on siis vast USB-C." (The more comfortable option for Estonians is then USB-C.) - Also here the user moved against what was said on the talk page. Disrespect for language issues. 80.171.207.9 15:57, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

I can't see any specific request. Please specify one. — regards, Revi 16:21, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
These renames were only done in goal according to the USB-IF. You can see on the official documentation that it is written "USB-IF recommends "USB Type-C" be used [...]" about the USB Type-C name and ""USB-C" as viable terminology to minimize word count [...]" about the shorten name USB-C. --Niridya (talk) 16:26, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
If you want to revert all my edits, you can do. But this I wanted to do is not a cross-wiki vandalism like you (and you differents IPs) are writting in the different wikis. ;) --Niridya (talk) 16:26, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
@-revi and 80.171.207.9: And I think that sending "LOL" to a very kind administrator is not a proof of good faith. --Niridya (talk) 16:41, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
Of course not. But that is a local issue in plwiki, nothing for meta. 80.171.207.9 16:58, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

User:-revi, the specific request is to undo the removals of the name "USB-C" in Wikidata, to move pages in local Wikipedias back, to their previous names. etwiki clearly states "Eestlastele suupärasem variant on siis vast USB-C". 80.171.207.9 16:56, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

And which wiki doesn't have active admins? (etwiki is non-GS wiki, we are not doing anything there.) — regards, Revi 16:59, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
@-revi: Just to be sure : I did nothing bad ? (except answering to this IP) ;) --Niridya (talk) 17:02, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
I haven't made any assessment with regard to your action: the request (at its current form) sounds like an issue that stewards does not intervene. — regards, Revi 17:04, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

User:-revi, are all these Wikis non-GS?:

80.171.207.9 17:07, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

@-revi: These renames are (for me) non controversal title changes. If anyone don't agree, anyone can revert without need of admin right (except on enWP where I opened a rename request). --Niridya (talk) 17:21, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Stewards does not decide which is the correct name for something, nor we will determine which party is right. Please discuss elsewhere (locally). Steward requests are just for requests. — regards, Revi 17:24, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you Revi (i will stop ping you at every message^^). --Niridya (talk) 17:26, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

OAuth consumer approval for the Bulgarian community Phabricator

Status:    Done
Moved from Meta talk:OAuth administrators.

Hi! Could you please approve the consumer that I've proposed, which should allow our Bulgarian community users to register and login to our (new) Phabricator. Deploying a Phabricator for local use has been discussed several times in the past, but became quite important with the new way the JS/CSS code in the MediaWiki namespace is handled, as we finally settled upon a code review process with automatic deployment (probably via Jenkins). It will likely also be used for the further development of the AI sysop bot PSS 9 and other more complex bot projects, as well as for general coordination and communication in various fields, e.g. by the current (and possibly new) Bulgarian user groups, where the wiki itself may not be flexible enough. The Phabricator instance is hosted by the Computer Assisted Research and Teaching Lab (C.lab) of the University of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, which already hosts wikimedian resources like the BG community blog and mailing lists. The local announcement is here. Please let me know if there are any problems with the request. Thank you very much for considering it.
— Luchesar • T/C 17:15, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Come to think of it, I should probably write a more user-centric description of the consumer, as this is likely what the users will see when trying to login, no? It seems there isn't a way to update it once proposed, so should I instead create a new proposal?
— Luchesar • T/C 17:54, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
I've created an updated proposal with more concise description. The link above has been updated. Feel free to delete or do whatever is appropriate with the old proposal. Thanks!
— Luchesar • T/C 21:26, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

No, only the name of the consumer is shown on the authorization form (which is not great but that's how it is). Anyway, approved. Re: deploying CSS/JS, maybe you are interested in phab:T187749. --Tgr (WMF) (talk) 09:42, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Tgr (WMF), thank you! I really appreciate your work on the new way of handling site JS/CSS - and it's even greater that you've been also considering the use of external repos. Concerning the OAuth consumer, I'm afraid I hadn't checked the "use callback URI as prefix" option. So I had to create a yet newer version. This time I checked that it works (hadn't realized I could do it with my own account). Could you please approve it, while possibly disapproving the previous one? Sorry for the mess!

Fix Navigation Popups on Hungarian-language wikis

Status:    Done

I have accidentally broken NavPopups on huwiktionary, huwikisource and huwikibooks a few hours ago, before sysops’ JS editing ability was disabled. Please append &only=scripts to the URLs. Thanks in advance, —Tacsipacsi (talk) 14:22, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Edit request in a locked wiki

Status:    Done

Based on points made during the now-closed discussion at Proposals for closing projects/Deletion of Simple English Wikiquote and Wikibooks, I would like the site notice at b:simple:MediaWiki:Sitenotice to be changed as follows:

  • After the period, but before the closing bold mark, please add:
<br />
Some of the contents of this wiki have been incorporated into the [[:en:Wikijunior|Wikijunior section of English Wikibooks]].

Thank you. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:58, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

We need a stewards "exists locally" (or enable stewards account to auto-create?). — regards, Revi 16:04, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Policy check

Status:    Done

Dear all,

Could you please point me to the rules of steward rules for blocking, deleting and restoring pages on a site where there is an active community with moderators, arbcom en bureacrats? Ed Lane (talk) 15:56, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

We generally avoid doing somehing there unless nature of the stuff is cross-wiki, urgent, or it's something only we can do (e.g. bigdelete). — regards, Revi 16:00, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Stewards follow the Stewards policy. Stryn (talk) 15:59, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
