Comment Comment @MCC214: each of those wikis has their own systems in place to manage their vandals. Global sysops cannot help, and I doubt that it is an area where the stewards would go digging. If you are after account locks, then this is not the page.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:05, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
All of the wikis specified has an active community of admins. I don't think we should interfere with their decision about 'who can see the deleted revisions on the wiki'. Please ask the locals to do this. — regards, Revi 10:04, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Pewdiepie spam at el.wikisource (GS wiki)

Status:    Not done

I request hiding of summary at elwikisource pewdiepie because it contain spam, I already hiding it, but User:Praxidicae doesn't agree with me and ask me to unhide it, so I unhide it, I will leave this to other GS. ----AldNonymousBicara? 18:38, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

As I explained earlier, there is no reason to hide something like this - it is stupid vandalism/spam but it doesn't violate anything that should require actual hiding. As the person who deleted it, you asked me to hide it, I declined on the basis that I don't think it falls under any relevant or reasonable criteria to hide, if it did, we'd hide every single spam edit on every project. I'm definitely not going to wheel-war over this but I disagree very much with hiding edits that aren't one of the three mortal wiki sins (attacks, scams or excessive spam, particularly in cases where no one is going to see it in the log.) Praxidicae (talk) 18:40, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
I'm rather concerned that AldNonymous appears to have such a poor grasp of the RD policy. Is this an isolated occurrence or the first I'm hearing of a pattern of RD abuse which may make tool removal necessary ? Nick (talk) 18:43, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
@Nick and Praxidicae: RD policy on el.wikisource is based from the original template translation from Mediawiki on Translate Wiki, this RD doesn't came from community sides, it is practiced on many wikis that to hide spam messages and such, for example if the link is being left on the spam summary itself. Now if I take policy from multiple wiki, theres RevDel policy that's coming from community itself that ask for RevDel'ing spam messages, so I follow that practice. So... Since there's a concern from fellow GSs about this RD I will leave it to other GS to decide. I hope this doesn't offend you both, thank you.--AldNonymousBicara? 18:49, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
I can't find an actual policy page for RD on el.wikisource, so I am basing my comment on the RD policy here on Meta Revision deletion allows for log redaction as well, however this feature is intended solely for grossly improper content, and is not permitted for ordinary matters. which can be found at Meta:Deletion policy. Nick (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 20:58, 5 April 2019 (UTC).
I agree with Praxidicae. I don't think revision deletion is necessary in this case. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:01, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Per pirsquared this closed as not done. Also for Nick before you make an outstanding accusation please be sure what policy is being violated, since you are actually posting deletion policy for local meta, not for global, if I wanted to, I could also use Deletion policy from id id:MediaWiki:Revdelete-reason-dropdown which include spam. Afaik revdel is treated as normal deletion and not as OS wannabe on some wikis. I maybe wrong, but thanks for being concerned about me.--AldNonymousBicara? 02:35, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
FWIW while this is not technically allowed on Meta, enwiki, and a lot of other large wikis I do see sysops on other wikis do it all the time. But elwikisource has active sysops, I'm not sure why they haven't been asked. --Rschen7754 03:05, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of cdo:Ariel_(ôi-sĭng)

Status:    Not done

"Ariel is very good at dealing with everything." (trad.): it's the only content of the page. Only 3 local admins who are not present every day (Stewardry). Thanks in advance Smile eye.png. --Eihel (talk) 00:07, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

X mark.svg Declined. I don't think Google Translate can be trusted with Eastern Min. The two links on that page go to the articles on Uranus and natural satellite, so it probably says something like "Ariel is a moon of Uranus", which is accurate. PiRSquared17 (talk) 00:18, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
Not to mention, the article was created by a user who is a sysop and bureaucrat on cdowiki. I think your problem is that Google Translate defaults to assuming that the text is written in Vietnamese (which is a completely unrelated language). I doubt the text remotely resembles Vietnamese, so the translation you get is likely just a case of w:Garbage in, garbage out. PiRSquared17 (talk) 00:19, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
I'm stupid, it's worse: it's the title that made me confused. If I re-translate my language into English, it gives "Oh my Ariel" (mon = moon). So, I made an attive conclusion with Google: it is a worshiper of some artist. pffffffff. Thank you for opening my eyes, PiRSquared17. --Eihel (talk) 00:43, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
@Eihel: If you paste the text into Google Translate and, instead of Vietnamese, translate it from Romanian to English, the output is "Ariel has been taught in the process of reuniting," which is also complete garbage. As far as I can tell, Google doesn't even have an option for Min Dong yet. Anyway, I don't mean to make a big deal out of this mistake, but it may serve as a reminder to be a bit more careful with Google Translate. PiRSquared17 (talk) 00:56, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Vandal on vi.wikiquote

Status:    Not done

Only 1 sysop on this wiki. There seems to be a lot of vandalism on q:vi:Thành_ngữ_Việt_Nam and q:vi:Tục_ngữ_Việt_Nam (Most of the edits may not seem obvious, but some specific edits are purely nonconstructive, like [4][5]). Please pay some attention to those articles. Since there have been too much vandalism, I do not even know which revisions I should revert to. Also pay some attention to those two ranges 2402:800:6115:2346:7DBC:6994:7700:B39A/322001:EE0:4592:92C0:8CED:B2A:6096:15B/32, thanks!--94rain Talk 09:03, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Please address this to the admin at viWQ, they have been onwiki in the past week, and this sort of stuff is best managed locally. If the admin needs our assistance, then they can ask. With regard to reverting, go back to a previously stable edition, and sometimes that can be a week or so. It is a conservative approach.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:59, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Edits to gadget namespace

Status:    Not done
  1. Add en:Template:R restricted to en:Gadget:Invention, Travel, & Adventure (originally proposed by Kusma at en:Wikipedia:Redirects_for_discussion/Log/2017 August 31#Gadget:Invention, Travel, & Adventure, see also en:Gadget talk:Invention, Travel, & Adventure#Edit request and en:Talk:Gadget Invention, Travel, & Adventure#Edit request)

For the avoidance of doubt, this cannot be done by a local administrator.

Thanks. * Pppery * survives 00:18, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

@Pppery: Currently, only the staff group can edit Gadget-space pages. Vermont (talk) 01:00, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Although, a steward could simply add the right to the steward global usergroup then do it. Vermont (talk) 01:14, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
@Vermont: Indeed. This is (atypically for SRM requests) an example of a request that requires a steward as opposed to a global sysop like you, but this seemed to me like the proper venue. * Pppery * survives 01:17, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Yep. Currently trying to get someone on IRC... Vermont (talk) 01:18, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
@MaxSem: It appears that you have declined this change in the past. Perhaps you could comment on whether you believe the hereby proposed action (make steward override the decision) is a good idea. --Vogone (talk) 01:43, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
I'm disappointed that now there's forum shopping around this. The Gadget namespace is reserved and should not contain wikitext. So far, due to one page being previously present in this namespace, a single redirect was allowed. If people will keep trying to pollute this namespace, perhaps we should nuke its existing contents and make it absolutely uneditable by anyone. Max Semenik (talk) 01:53, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Your argument that the gadget namespace ... should not contain content was rejected by consensus of the English Wikipedia community in August 2017. (and, though it wouldn't be impermissible to start another RfD, it would likely lead to the same result since nothing significant has changed). If you go ahead with your plan to nuke the entire gadget namespace, then I plan to take the deletion of en:Gadget:Invention, Travel, & Adventure to deletion review. * Pppery * survives 03:31, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
If a project wants their pages in this namespace to be edited, they should just go about getting it set up for project level control. This ns has been hanging around for a long time unused though, so I'm mostly on board with @MaxSem:'s note that it should just be removed unless someone can point to a specific rollout schedule. — xaosflux Talk 03:38, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
(ec) English Wikipedia discussions and conclusions do not apply at meta. Also not certain that being argumentative about staff and developer issues is appropriate in this space.

Generally phabricator: is probably a better space for changes in areas outside of standard management and rights.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:40, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

--Alaa :)..! 09:22, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
I think he was asking you to look at the user talk page's history and oversight those edits, not to CU the account. In regard to the filter, the title blacklist was only updated with Drmies's username on March 18. Vermont (talk) 13:22, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
Vermont, we are dealing with an LTA here. Yes, I wanted someone to CU the account, which is why I posted it on the Steward/CU page. This LTA is a sock and frequently travels with a half-dozen accounts. Now, I do not understand all this bureaucratic BS that User:علاء is throwing at me. I don't know why they can't protect my WikiQuote talk page: the only purpose it serves is harassment, and there is no reason for to go to another page to request semi-protection when I'm already trying to reach a steward. Nor do I understand whey they can't have a look at User talk:Bonadea to scrub such content as " Category:I am 1 lucky kid i sucking my sweaty dad c*ck and my dad watch my uncle breed my assmmm i"--User:علاء , do you think that's not disruptive? And I don't have any interest in reading a policy here: it's my daughter's name that was mentioned there, so someone better take an interest in it. Sorry, I know y'all have things to do, but at some point someone needs to take some action, and with this LTA that means running CU, blocking all accounts, possibly placing rangeblocks, and revdeleting all of their harassment. Drmies (talk) 01:52, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
@Drmies: To be fair, stewards can get in trouble for non-emergency admin actions on wikis that have active sysops. (I actually voted to remove a steward for a similar reason a few years ago, and the steward was removed in the end). Regarding the oversight request, if the content isn't oversighted (I can't tell if it was revdel-ed or OSed), you can email mail:meta-oversight. --Rschen7754 02:07, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
It appears as though your English Wikiquote talk page has been protected from creation since October 2018. Are you referring to a different language Wikiquote? Also, if your daughter's name is still there, it can be oversighted, although normal disruptive edits cannot be. (see Alaa's link above) Thanks, Vermont (talk) 02:11, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Vermont, User:Rschen7754, at the risk of being a little too dramatic, did y'all notice that the motherfucker posted my address in a username? Vermont, when you hit "rollback", the username is included in the edit summary, but at least now you know how to send me a Christmas card, so many one of you can take care of that.

    Now here is what I would like: I want ALL the talk pages protected or at least semi-protected, on all the dozens of Wikis where I will NEVER be active, talk pages that only exist, AFAIK, because of this unified login stuff. There are so many that I don't even know what's where anymore. And have some nice smart person tweak the filter. That is the simplest way to counter this, until the WMF grows teeth and a spine. Thanks. Drmies (talk) 15:26, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

    • Drmies, I’ll see if I can poke someone about a filter here, which likely would be easier than protecting your page on 700 odd projects. I don’t think Ala’a was trying to be bureaucratic here. He’s usually one of the least bureaucratic stewards and I suspect it was a misunderstanding of what you’re asking. Since your daughter is involved, I poked another steward to look at this since I think Alaa is offline and I don’t think he would mind. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:48, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello all (Hey @Drmies:), my response above based on the tangle and overlapping of the request without sufficient explanation, especially that Drmies is well-trusted and highly experienced user, and when I mentioned the policies pages I mean that (OS request applied private email or OTRS and not on public, and CU requests should contain information about "why to CU?"). I don't want to waste more time on explanation, but of course I apologize for my (mistake, misunderstanding and poor handling) of the request. @Drmies: can you please explain how I can help? --Alaa :)..! 16:51, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

  • User_talk:علاء , I appreciate your note and I hear from TonyBallioni that I was too harsh with you: my apologies. I think I outlines above what I need in these cases: CU for sleepers, revdeletion of all personal information, including edit summaries and such...and semi-protection of all those talk pages... thanks; I know y'all are having to do a lot of hard work, but I hope you understand that seeing your address in a username is seeing almost the worst kind of harassment and personal threat.

@Drmies: Face-smile.svg I'm working in that.... --Alaa :)..! 17:04, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
Alaa, if anything - this sockpuppeteer hops over a very large range which blocking causes huge collateral (may be broken down to roughly 3--4 smaller ranges, but still large enough). CU sleepers may or may not be doable in this case. Page protection is already done through means other than local sysops. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 17:13, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of user subpage in Lao language

Status:    Done

I'm in a WP-editathon with Wikipedians editing in different languages, one of them in Lao. A participant wants to delete her subpage (because Google is indexing this subpage and showing it prominently in this language!). I have tried different templates to ask for (speedy) deletion and none of these templates works in lao, for ex. this is not working: {{subst:Proposed deletion|concern=reason for proposed deletion}}.

So I ask here, what to do or if someone could delete this page and this page?

It appear that the Lao Wikipedia has no active admins. Thank you --Hadi (talk) 10:07, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

kywiktionary revisited

Status:    Not done

As with my post about kywiktionary back in February, there has been quite a bit of recent page creation through IPs at that wiki, much of which was just deleted on March 24th (and relevant address ranges blocked). Billinghurst took care of it this time, but left the contributions of several now-blocked IPs in place because, he said: "Mass delete failed due to db error, and I didn't have the time to do singly. The older are not in RC, so cannot be mass deleted." Since they apparently would have been deleted if it had been easy to do, I'm wondering whether someone else wants to take a look at this and consider whether the pages should be deleted (or possibly even the opposite: consider reversing the blocks in some cases — not sure whether that's a common occurrence):

Here are "luxotool" links for the only two of these IPs with any cross-wiki activity (in both cases, a trivial amount — the others are only on kywiktionary):

Holder is the other user who has been quite active mass-deleting pages on kywiktionary recently (deleted all the pages I posted about back in Feb). I don't have particularly strong feelings about these entries, but they do seem to fit the pattern of mass page creations, likely from the same user, using ever-changing IP addresses — hallmarks of longtime vandals trying to get around blocks (and potentially of other, legitimate users). - dcljr (talk) 23:54, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

As I did in February, I have notified admins at the Kyrgyz Wikipedia (this time all three of them) about this discussion. - dcljr (talk) 00:09, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
I saw that, that IP did it again, he flooded the RC and cvn channels, also notifying @Vogone:.--AldNonymousBicara? 03:14, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment it is not so clean, some of these have reason text, eg. wikt:ky:nedancināmi and I am not brave enough to march in and delete as wiktionary is not one of my strengths. So I think it is a case of build a list, at kywikt of proposed deletions, and after a period of time we can delete what is not removed from a proposed list.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:57, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
    re activity, there is nothing there in the last few days following range blocks, so I am not sure what is being reported through cvn channels.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:08, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
    Not these IPs, different ones, I forgot the address but doing similar thing as this. I don't know if I should stop that IP action or not, please ask Vogone, he know more about this than me.--AldNonymousBicara? 12:30, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

If no one is prepared to say that these entries were created illegitimately by a known vandal, then we should probably just close this as "not done". The Kyrgyz Wikipedia admins have not responded to my requests to participate in this discussion (none of them have edited that wiki in the meantime), and there's too many entries to check individually by someone who doesn't read Kyrgyz — i.e., by cross-referencing the info with existing pages in other Wiktionaries and Wikipedias. FWIW, I did that with the 5 "USA" entries created by 2804:14C:6590:8CEC:30C1:F2AD:148A:587B and they all seemed legit. If anyone has a lot of time on their hands, they can check the rest and tag any obviously bad entries with the local Template:Delete, for listing in the wiki's "speedy delete" category. (In case anyone is confused, the Kyrgyz Wikipedia admins were contacted because the Kyrgyz Wiktionary has no admins and no detectible editing community.) - dcljr (talk) 07:38, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
