Sysop abuse on the Azerbaijani Wikipedia[edit]

User:sefer azeri' is engaged in vandalism: 1 (Reliable sources wiped out.), 2 (Without any major wiped out the picture., , ) , 3 (Fraud. Map changed. 100 years have reduced the state's history.), 4 (Insult.)... Requires block it for at least a year. But it was never punished for their work. Sortilegus always supported him. He is also engaged in vandalism: 1 (Reliable sources wiped out), 2 (The name of the state, has been removed.), 3 (Reliable sources wiped out)... Wertuose always supported him. He is also engaged in vandalism: 1 (Picture of the article - az:Bakı xan sarayı), is deleted.. 2 (insult; Əxlaqsız ifadələrə görə...) and 3. The 3 users blocked me, without any reason! We do not have arbitration and appellate courts. Therefore, administrators dictator. No one can give me an answer?! To whom should I complain? I wrote about it: Requests for comment/Sysop abuse on the Azerbaijani Wikipedia, but there was no reaction?! The reason I am writing again. Please avoid vandalism. Perhaps now would be the reaction? Thanks in advance. -Idin Mammadof talk 11:59, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
It is a local issue and has nothing to with here, and as far as I checked no misuse has happened. please keep such discussion local Mardetanha talk 21:27, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Mardetanha, we arbitration and Appellate courts do not have. To whom should I complain? They do not give me an answer. Do you think the person suffering from the actions of Hitler, should apply to him? There is no other way out? -Idin Mammadof talk 6:45, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
you comparison is way wrong, and I checked admin actions against you, they were fair to you Mardetanha talk 14:40, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
Mardetanha, you know the Azerbaijani language? I showed the facts, - vandalism is not it? If not, tell that I am telling lies. The question is not about me, the subject is about the violation of rules by them. Please let us know your opinion about it. I showed this vandalism, violation of general principles, they do not let anybody. Is this what you call justice ?! This is one thousandth of their actions... They are engaged in vandalism, those who oppose them, they will be blocked. Educated users immediately blocked under various pretexts. For example, see: Afrasiyab; he worked for 3 months. Very well worked and blocked 3 times in 1 month, and then blocked indefinitely. He created the template Russian Wikipedia. He also blocked.... --Idin Mammadof talk 15:08, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
Vandalism continues..., User:sefer azeri writes: "atan haqqında yazdığın məqaləni də sildim bu da sənə paz olsun ... çox göt-baş atsan onun qəzeti haqqında məqaləni də sənin qəzetin haqqında məqaləni də siləcəm ... nə istəyirsən elə" (To displease you, I will do everything.). -Idin Mammadof (talk) 16:26, 03 08 2015 (UTC)

Global sysops and ability to view global filters[edit]

I am considering putting forward a proposal that those who have global sysop rights, are also granted the right to view global filters. This would be equivalent of individually giving the "Abuse filter helpers" right in addition to their existing rights. As global filters only apply to small, medium and opt-in wikis, it is within their area of action of visibility of meta. I would be interested in opinions of stewards and other experienced users prior to putting together a formal proposal.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:20, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Agree, I think it's a good idea.--Syum90 (talk) 09:50, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
+1--Vituzzu (talk) 01:17, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
I agree that it is a good idea. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:56, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

Proposal has been formulated and is now at Requests for comment/Adding global abuse filter rights to global_sysops.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:27, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

vandalizm in azb wiki[edit]

we have vandalizm by fake users here. please semi-protect that page.--Koroğlu (talk) 04:26, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

@Koroğlu: As this is a new wiki, I don't believe that we have any good indication of a new vs. a faked user, so I am unwilling to protect the page at this point of time. I would encourage fellow stewards to be aware of this discussion, and to consider how they review the nomination discussions, and any awarding of temporary rights on the wiki when they are granted.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:58, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
It is very well possible to say that a faked user is one who did not previously contribute on the test-wiki or on azbwiki, but comes out of nowhere to oppose RFAs (&make an own RFA) on a brand new wiki with his first and only edits. --MF-W 11:21, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
I removed all those opposes relating to this (I don't know what the strike mark is on that wiki, if different from English). Tropicalkitty (talk) 07:24, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
Your initiative was surely well-intentioned, but traceless removal (like [1]) from a random user doesn't help to resolve such a situation either. For the record, the MediaWiki syntax' English originals work always, as you can read in all manuals. --MF-W 11:21, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
Semi-protection likely is of little use, as azbwiki is a new wiki, so even established users from Incubator or azwiki might still not be autoconfirmed and therefore be unable to vote, while these strange new accounts might already be created long enough ago. - Anyway, I have checkusered these five voters who appeared out of nowhere and whose only edits globally were the opposes. They are all related and I blocked them locally. --MF-W 11:21, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
