Name hidden? Not[edit]

Hi, on the content page I noticed a user name with a religious slur that was supposed to be hidden. Actually it was hidden, but a popup revealed it anyway when I hovered the name. Possibly the en:Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups are to blame. No information was leaked anymore when I disabled these popups in my Preferences.

Either the popups or the hiding itself appears to be leaky and hopefully the technicians will fix this bug as soon as possible. Regards – B222 (talk) 19:25, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

I also left a message at en:Wikipedia talk:Tools/Navigation popups#Hidden names leaked. You may check or edit that page before answering here – B222 (talk) 19:41, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
Do you mean the Page Previews? It's not the same as Navigation popups. Stryn (talk) 19:55, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
No, it was the Navigation popups that revealed the info, as you might easily check by enabling them. After flushing the page cache you will see the leak when hovering the user name but no information is revealed with the Navigation popups disabled. Moreover, I never get Page Previews, the Navigation popups seem to suppress them – B222 (talk) 20:14, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
I assume you refer to this:
That isn't supposed to keep the name secret but only to omit displaying it directly on the page. The links are working and show the name. Ordinary desktop browsers will often show the url with the name when you hover, even without popups. And the name is in the wikitext. PrimeHunter (talk) 20:23, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
O, I see. So it is not a bug? Leaves me wondering what the fuss of hiding is about. It should not be too difficult to make the links unclickable except for moderators, which would possibly eliminate the url issue too. Creating a CSS class or using an existing one might do – B222 (talk) 20:39, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

LTA pair[edit]

w:en:special:Contribs/Aizom for global unset lock as does w:en:special:contribs/Aizos - BOTH are crosswiki LTAs, e.g. here: w:pl:special:contribs/Aizom w:pl:special:contribs/Aizos, including previous IPs with the same deeds.

Looking for help to solve abuse[edit]

I am here seeking help. I want to report abuse of Turkish wikipedia's authorities. In short, here are the things I have suffered there:

  1. I have been called "troll" by a patrol when a certian admin called him to explain his position after I called that admin to supervise our conflict - nothing is done to that patrol.
  2. The patrol kept on imposing his choice and preventing me, I reported this issue to all admins of Turkish wikipedia so that one of them can supervise our conflict since the admin I called did not supervise. I got banned for a week with no explanation and no explanation is provided even though I have asked them over and over again. I have waited for 3 weeks upon contacting and explaining the problem to the second authority (bureaucrat), nothing was done.
  3. I deleted a baseless content on Turkish wikipedia, I wrote the reasons on the relevant talk page and on the editing box. Patrols and admins kept on reverting that baseless content without demonstrating the content is based on a source, they did even not bother to reply to objections. I asked them over and over again to point out on what basis of which source that content is written on wikipedia, none of them pointed out and again blocked me for 2 weeks - I again asked the reason why I am banned and no reason is pointed out to me.
  4. I have been accused of using sockpuppet account, they opened an investigation and no additional account is alleged to be mine. They banned me permanently with assigning sockpuppet master on my profile page. It is true that I made changes After getting banned and no reason is stated for my ban but the Turkish wikipedia's rules do not define editing through IP as sockpuppet acction. I have asked for explanation again and no explanation is given to date.


Authorities of Turkish wikipedia publishing baseless content on Wikipedia and they are preventing me from using a content from the source they use. They cherry-pick the content, they themselves publish something from the source, when I use the same source they prevent me without stating any reason. Does it not violate neutrality policy? --Ruhubelent (talk) 11:08, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
