Clean Start

Hello I would like to do clean start. So, could u please create one account for me? ☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 14:51, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

There is no such thing as a global clean start. If you want to do it on enwiki, see en:Wikipedia:Clean start. --MF-W 22:24, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
You should also explain why you created User:Cricket_Tracker account. Ruslik (talk) 19:59, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: I created that account by following Tulsi Bhagat's suggestion. He told me to create that account in twitter. If u need proof then I will send screenshot of that discussion. Tulsi is also creating multiple accounts such as Wiki Mopper, born4revote and so on. He left this account by saying that he will do clean start with Wiki Mopper but he active this account again. ☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 16:51, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Part of the point of a clean start is that you don't tell anyone you're going to do it. --Rschen7754 17:06, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
okay thanks but please think about tulsi's activities. ☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 17:12, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
This isn't elementary school where you tattle on people and hope the stewards respond. --Rschen7754 17:26, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Please, do not create accounts: your "buddies" will quickly report you. Ruslik (talk) 18:17, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

ok will do clean start. ☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 03:33, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

tulsi's should be globally bocked. he is sockpuppet. ☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 03:38, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
^This comment by itself proves that you don't have the maturity to handle editing. This is not a game. MechQuester (talk) 14:44, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
I agree with MechQuester. Can we please have the user re-locked (the issue regarding "not blocked at homewiki" seems resolved now)? --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:52, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
sorry for the community time. ☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 15:49, 8 January 2017 (UTC):This section was archived on a request by: ☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 15:49, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Is it safe to say Pmlineditor retired?

I see he has been virtually gone from wiki. Burnout maybe? his most recent edit was [ this edit. MechQuester (talk) 03:39, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

I don't think publicly speculating about other user's health on a public noticeboard helps anyone. --Vogone (talk) 03:46, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
If he is truly leaving, the steward confirmation process will take care of it. --Rschen7754 04:03, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

New account

Hello, I would like to create new account with productive edits. So, I need your permission before taking my decision. --☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 04:20, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

please respond my message. "Thanks" --☆★Raaza Upreti (✉✉) 06:45, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
You are no longer welcome on Meta on any account, after your recent stint of hacking into accounts, making vandalism-only accounts, and trying to blame your actions on others. Quite frankly I am surprised I even need to say this. – Ajraddatz (talk) 07:29, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
Should this be formalised by a community block? By the sounds of the conversation, without seeing the evidence, that should progress to that point. It also takes the emphasis of stewards and back to the community.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:50, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

@Billinghurst:, perhaps a global ban? MechQuester (talk) 04:52, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

that was my inference.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:12, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
We will still (at some point) release a statement on the case once everything is resolved. I don't think a community ban here would add anything that hasn't already been done, or is being done. – Ajraddatz (talk) 22:05, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Rusyn Wikipedia


Yesterday I noticed an article uk:Вікіпереворот у Русинській Вікіпедії (Wikirevolution in Rusyn Wikipedia), written by users Словянин and Закарпатець. It contains the following claims:

  • Four users (Словянин, Закарпатець, Мукачево and Русинська оброда) formed a group to grab admin rights in Rusyn Wikipedia
  • The election was rigged and was well-planned in advance
  • The election was organised in just two days
  • They actively used sockpuppets during the election
  • "Dumb stewards" did not notice this and granted rights.

Now as Rusyn Wikipedia sysop Словянин (talk contribs count logs page moves block log CA email) publicly claimed that his election in Rusyn Wikipedia was rigged, I think stewards should check these claims — NickK (talk) 11:39, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

The sysop rights were granted for 3 months, set to expire on April 4. Can you please provide diffs to support your affirmations? Savhñ 11:46, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
@Savh: I don't understand your question. These affirmations are not mine, two users involved (Словянин (talk contribs count logs page moves block log CA email) and Закарпатець (talk contribs count logs page moves block log CA email)) publicly affirmed it by creating an article uk:Вікіпереворот у Русинській Вікіпедії in Ukrainian Wikipedia (diffs are in the edit history of this article). If users state they used sockpuppets and manipulated the election and that "dumb stewards" did not notice it and granted rights, I think it should be checked. In my opinion this can violate multiple rules: manipulating the election (as far as I understand they changed local rules), using sockpuppets and organising an election in just two days (while usually 7 days are required) — NickK (talk) 12:00, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for this clarification. I will look into it. Savhñ 12:02, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
CheckUser evidence confirms the vote had been rigged. I have proceeded to removing the rights and will evaluate further actions. Savhñ 12:09, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
I recently requested to block a user for vandalism, which one of you did. The edits of the user were partially restored by an admin (to be honest I do not remember what is the user name and who is the admin), but if there is sockpuppetry going on it might be worthwhile to check whether any of the admins are identical to this globally blocked user.--Ymblanter (talk) 15:18, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
Found it, the user was User:Гншшп.--Ymblanter (talk) 15:19, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
