Please review

Hi. Can you please take a look at Special:GlobalRenameQueue/request/58847 please? Thanks. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:59, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Hello @MarcoAurelio: Yes check.svg reviewed (rejected), as it's still unacceptable (advertising for a company). This request related to Persian not Arabic. --Alaa :)..! 17:18, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the review. I cannot read those characters so I was not sure if it was ar or fa. Thankfully you sorted it out. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:31, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Hello, my colleague @Azurfrog: found another sock today : Alomari-Ali. Kind regards, -Bédévore (talk) 18:29, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Hello @Bédévore: Thanks a lot! I locked the account globally, and blocked it on arwiki also. I checked it on loginwiki, and I found another sock (not on frwiki). Thanks Face-smile.svg --Alaa :)..! 19:10, 21 January 2020 (UTC)


Hello friend, I apologize for quoting you and then withdrawing the order! I was thinking about becoming an admin interface, but I'm very busy at the time. Sorry :). Micael D. (talk) 18:42, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

Hello @Micael D.: don't mind, hope you are well. When you have time you can re-apply. Best and you can ping me anytime Face-smile.svg --Alaa :)..! 21:19, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi. First of all, thanks for tracking cross-wiki spams. I had a question regarding this: have you seen w:simple:Special:Contribs/Ahmadqatari? Are those page creations spamming as well? Thanks. Ahmadtalk 17:16, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Hello @Ahmad252:. Thanks for help, you can found more about this user here. We nuked all of articles created by this user as it are articles about non-notable users. Thanks for remind me about this user. Hope if @TonyBallioni, Praxidicae, and Vermont: can help in articles of enwiki and simple wiki. Best --Alaa :)..! 17:27, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation, I'll read the report. Please let me know if I can be of help. Ahmadtalk 17:33, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
I did ask Vermont but he was too busy and directed me to AN. I did asked in IRC where apparently HakanIST said those articles are okay (i.e. notable). I did put out some into RFD, Ahmad252 might want to give opinions there (In simple). Going forward we need a way to manage their creations as it seems problematic.
As an side note, do you still need the indef semi protection? Thanks for locking all the accounts still.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:35, 22 February 2020 (UTC)


Can you tell me anything about 2607:FB90:0:0:0:0:0:0/32 ? I'm tracing a user who's making fake articles on rappers/singers, who's active on that range. TonyBallioni, you dropped a block on that range a few months ago--anything exciting? Thanks, Drmies (talk) 22:23, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Drmies this is the T-Mobile IPv6 range that’s pretty much been consistently globally or locally blocked for the last few years. It has a few LTAs on it, but it’s probably the same person you were thinking of when you blocked it previously. Also, hi Ala’a :) TonyBallioni (talk) 22:44, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
Haha, should have checked the block log. I wonder what he did to attract a global block. Drmies (talk) 22:53, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
Moving to other projects to evade our block! TonyBallioni (talk) 23:14, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Hello @Drmies:, I see that TonyBallioni summarized this range issue. (Based on lwcu) Until now there's more than 100 accounts globally locked on this range with a lot of abusive usernames. Also, a lot of these accounts already blocked on multiple projects. I don't know if there's specific information you want to know, so please if there's, probably you can write it on CUwiki and ping me, then I'll give you all info. you want to fight abuse/spam..etc --Alaa :)..! 13:52, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi Alaa--thank you so much. No, Tony's answer pretty much covers what I needed to know. I appreciate all you do for our beautiful project. Drmies (talk) 16:40, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
