Blocked Range

Hi AmandaNP! I've got a request from an editor using one of the IP addresses being globally blocked by you. It's 94.153.80.89 and it could be a part of a blocked range (94.153.64.0/19) for a long-term abuse. This IP is a dynamic address from a Ukrainian ISP provider (Kyivstar) so it seems to affect any of the users. Could you remove the block please? Thank you. --Goo3 (talk) 08:25, 14 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

Your range block at zhwiki

Hello, admin from zhwiki here, thank you for your reaching out in our community. As the text currently in log caused misunderstanding, would you please tell me your reason for blocks in English? Thank you. --Hamish 22:43, 12 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

Sorry I thought I had gotten clarification from another user on IRC. Basically the reason is long-term abuse. I can't specify much more than that. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 12:00, 13 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hello, tell me plz, can you somehow hide these names from the user drop-down list? :) Iniquity (talk) 17:34, 13 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

Most of the names do not qualify for that level of hiding (for example you can search up my name and find a similar one). Are you looking for any user in particular to be done? -- Amanda (aka DQ) 21:33, 13 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
Hi! :) Such usernames are used to harass users, including to litter the list of users. These usernames should be hidden, can it be done through T&S? Iniquity (talk) 23:52, 13 May 2021 (UTC)Reply
I will speak with other stewards to verify, but I don't think this is commonly granted without further vulgarities involved. I doubt T&S would touch this as it's a community issue. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 04:43, 14 May 2021 (UTC)Reply

Invitation for Functionary consultation 2021

Greetings,

I'm letting you know in advance about a meeting I'd like to invite you to regarding the Universal Code of Conduct and the community's ownership of its future enforcement. I'm still in the process of putting together the details, but I wanted to share the date with you: 26 June, 2021. I do not have a time on this date yet, but I will let you soon. We have created a meta page with basic information. Please take a look at the meta page and sign up under the appropriate section.

Thank you for your time.--BAnand (WMF) 14:04, 2 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

Just in case, did you conduct a sleeper check? I did not find anything in the global lock log and found it quite weird that none existed, given that at least three accounts with a very similar username pattern had been created. ~~~~

#wikimedia-checkuser

Hi AmandaNP, can you please grant me acces to the IRC channel #wikimedia-checkuser? I am a Checkuser on NL Wikipedia (check here; you will also see the other checkusers). The reason: My Access to the IRC channel is not available due to the migration to Libera chat. I do not use it very often though. Thanks Ellywa (talk) 08:32, 13 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

If you could just tell me your username/cloak and message me on there, I'll get to it as soon as I have that. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 19:56, 13 June 2021 (UTC)Reply
Hi AmandaNP, this is - I think - my cloak: ~ellywa@user/ellywa . I did not find you present on IRC up to now. I looked on the WP-en channel. Perhaps its the time difference... Ellywa (talk) 12:10, 19 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

Requesting help for AbuseFilter actions

Hello Amanda, there are so many request pages that I am a little lost. I would like to do two things:

  • Hide a few AbuseFilter log lines from public view (I made tests and did not realize that they would contain my private information),
  • Configure AbuseFilter on a wiki so that abusefilter-log and abusefilter-view apply to autoconfirmed users, not everyone.

Can you please tell me who to contact in order to do that, and if a community discussion is needed first? Huñvreüs (talk) 12:56, 12 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

You should be able to hide abusefilter log entries yourself on the wiki. This would only apply to administrators though. If you need the log oversighted, please contact us. As for the changing who can view the edit filter logs, I know you would have to make a request through Phabricator, but i'm not sure it will be approved, and i'm not sure if it will require community consensus. -- Amanda (she/her) 13:41, 12 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
Hiding from regular users is enough, but I can’t find how to do that, or a documentation on this particular topic. Could you please tell me how to hide a log entry? Huñvreüs (talk) 14:20, 12 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
So I just had clarified for me that you either have to revdel the actual revision (if it was even allowed) or it has to be oversighted. So just go ahead and contact us at the link I gave above with the ones with your private info. -- Amanda (she/her) 14:33, 12 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

I have globally blocked the IP address for 3 days. Unfortunately, I can't block the entire range as there would be a fair amount of colleterial. If they continue, you can always immediately report it to any steward on IRC instead of waiting for me to wake up or become available. That way they can be stopped early. That's sadly all I can offer. -- Amanda (she/her) 10:05, 13 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
That's great ! Ok Dear AmandaNP The next time they vandalize or abuse me from Ip by Adam Chacko, I will directly and fastest through IRC complain to you or other stewards if you are proactive, thank you very much for answering me.Aviram NoSurprisesPlease 11:41, 13 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

On HEATHROW and ELLS

Hi Amanda, thank you for the information about User:Color Actor the other day. I've been thinking about this because it was hard for me to believe ja:LTA:HEATHROW and ja:LTA:ELLS were the same person, but there might be a possibility that ELLS was masking his/her IP address(es) as HEATHROW's, using proxies. This is because ELLS often uses VPNs and HEATHROW's IPs are everywhere in the block log. If Color Actor's IPs revealed by CU have been blocked before with an explicit declaration of LTA:HEATHROW, this may be the case, as far as I'm concerned.

Just thought I'd talk to you. Thanks again. --Dragoniez (talk) 19:27, 25 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

The blocked users in the Sakizaya community

Good day AmandaNP,

I am iyumu, a Wikimedian from Taiwan currently working for Paiwan Wikimedians User Group and helping other communities of Taiwanese indigenous languages. I've just recieved messages from Sakizaya users that their accounts are blocked because of "swifting ip" which is considered inappropriate acts on wiki. It was found last year when I tried to help the Sakizaya community to vote for their own admin. However, for I know, the "ip" is the same only because 海螺先生 and 龍眼村長 are in the same house (they're from the same family). And the community are actually very small (total population of Sakizaya speakers are only about 1,000). So for now, I would like to know if the block can be canceled? And next, how I can help them with their contribution in the future? For example, do I need to tell them, if people are in the same house or office sharing the same ip, they share only one account? Thank you.iyumu 09:30, 28 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

The problem is, is I didn't just find the two users you mentioned, I found several more accounts. Please see this. I would need a little better explanation as to why I found all of these accounts. -- Amanda (she/her) 12:36, 28 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

Dear AmandaNP thanks a lot for globally lock LTA of Adam Chacko, but you remove pending change protection on अलका नूपुर but this page is semi-protected Currently but I requested to you please fully protect this page.Regards Aviram NoSurprisesPlease 16:02, 28 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
The semi protection has not had a chance to work yet, because pending changes protection is on. Fully protecting the page would make it so that you couldn't even edit it, which would be an extreme measure. Lets try semi-protection for now. -- Amanda (she/her) 16:04, 28 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
Dear AmandaNP , that's Great! But adam chacko will come back to edit a few days later and his edits tell him that he is adam chacko, and sadly there is no tool on wikipedia that automatically checks the edits of a Sockpuppet account forever, but I'm glad you're standing by my side to help me.Regards Aviram NoSurprisesPlease 16:14, 28 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

Minimum voting requirements

Hello Amanda,

In Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements for a permanent administrator, I found this:

  • The candidate must obtain at least 80% support.
  • Any opposition requires a full discussion.

The local rules in the Breton Wikipedia require 75% support and a discussion is not required in any case. Does this mean, since we don’t have bureaucrats, that we have to change our rules? Also, does it mean that oppositions must be discussed in English, or do we need to translate them before filing the request, since a discussion in Breton is probably not very helpful to a steward? Huñvreüs (talk) 18:54, 3 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

I guess it would all depend on the policy if it was adopted by consensus. I tried to look at br:Wikipedia:Melestrerien for the latest policy, but I couldn't find it. I would try not to override local consensus if it exists. A vote does not have to be in English either, though a steward may have some difficulty reading it. Using symbols like Support Support and Oppose Oppose can often help with that. -- Amanda (she/her) 19:34, 3 May 2022 (UTC)Reply
Wow, I had no idea we had such an outdated page! The correct one is br:Wikipedia:Merourien, I will fix the redirect from br:Wikipedia:Administrators since this is probably how you got there. As far as I know, the policy was decided by the former bureaucrat, Neal. These are the rules he applied, so we just kept them even after he went away. What I want to avoid here is someone getting 76% of the votes and not being made a sysop: if this can happen, it would probably be better to switch to 80%. Also, locally, for those 75%, neutral votes count the same as opposes. This is weird, and it was contested, but so far it has not changed. Huñvreüs (talk) 19:47, 3 May 2022 (UTC)Reply
We normally would not count neutral votes as part of the opposes. Maybe this might be better to get some wider attention at the stewards' noticeboard for those who know more about permission granting than I do. -- Amanda (she/her) 00:26, 4 May 2022 (UTC)Reply
OK, thanks. Huñvreüs (talk) 08:19, 4 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

How to request my unblock?

I'm currently blocked permanently in Mongolian Wikipedia, for doing machine-translation, which I don't think I've done. How to request my unblock? Enkhsaihan2005 (talk) 03:50, 10 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

How do stewards and Wikipedia rules affect the disclosure of personal information? That's what he did, by the way User:Mykola7. He then hid it but held a long discussion there. If necessary, I will provide a link to this action. I consider such actions of him absolutely intentional for the purpose of further personal attacks on me by a vandal. I'm not just asking this out of curiosity, but because for more than a year now I have been harassed in a rather brutal way by the so-called Kyivstar vandal not only on Wikipedia, but also by someone who revealed my data to him on Facebook and in April this year there. Then he was forced to delete his page there. Thank you. --Jphwra (talk) 04:47, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply

If the personal information disclosure happened on ukwiki then you should tell your local oversighters so they can remove the information even from admins eyes. I don't know what specifically ukwiki's policies are regarding this, so you would have to look into that. If it happened on another wiki, then let me know which wiki and we can move forward from there. But basically on wikis with oversighters it's up to the local community to handle it, unless it's happening across multiple wikis, then stewards can get involved. -- Amanda (she/her) 04:55, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply
I think Jphwra decided to pursue me now, after I interfered in his manipulation of the SRP. There was no disclosure, because he himself spread this information on the pages of the Wiki, and more than once. I decided to go to the Jphwra meeting and hid this information at his request, although I am not obliged to do so, as this information is still available on the Wiki pages. So if Jphwra continues to harass me or accuse me in their own fictions, I will simply revoke my concealment of this information, because he himself disclosed this information, thereby agreeing to distribute it under a Creative Commons license. And yes, I explained to him there that he could ask the oversighters to suppress everything where he had written his own data, but he didn't care, he was just looking for a reason to accuse me, because I did not allow him to manipulate further. Sorry AmandaNP for having to read this now. Mykola talk 13:47, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply
as you can see from the reaction of User: Mykola7, he considers the disclosure to be correct. Although no userbox mentioned my specialty. As for persecution, in no case is there any persecution, but a statement of fact. And quite an unpleasant fact from the user, who is the administrator, checker and concealer. For the time being, Amanda, I reserve the right to contact you if User: Mykola7 abuses administrator rights, ie unjustified blocking, warnings, etc.? Thanks for the answer. Jphwra (talk) 14:19, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply
Any potential abuses need to be dealt with by the local community. I can't take any unilateral action on my own and would not be able to take action without community consensus. -- Amanda (she/her) 22:52, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply
I understand you. This is to insure against possible abuse. You have to understand me correctly. Jphwra (talk) 06:57, 5 June 2022 (UTC)Reply

review of glock

Hello, I hope you are doing well.
Recently, you globally locked User:Khirid Harshad. While I am aware of the reasoning, and support the glock, I am confused about it on mrwiki. Currently, there is a consensus on mrwiki (mr:special:permalink/2123274#Khirid_Harshad या सदस्याचे योगदान) that Khirid Harshad should be unblocked at least on mrwiki, as there has been no inappropriate edits by the user on Marathi Wikipedia. I think we should give them rope, and an opportunity to explain themselves. But the problem is, they do not have connected an email address to their account, and given the history of their socking, the chances are low that they would check their account. So I request this to be done quickly. Folks at Marathi wikipedia are concerned about losing a useful contributor. Once you unlbock the editor, we can take this to appropriate venue if you'd like (steward's noticeboard?). Kindly ping when replying. Regards, —usernamekiran (talk) 10:01, 13 June 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Usernamekiran: I have unlocked the account. That said, they really should not be using multiple accounts like their latest one, Desai Aditya and the excessive amount of logged out editing that is going on. Please try and advise them of this. -- Amanda (she/her) 19:47, 14 June 2022 (UTC)Reply
Just for the record here, they also continue to sock on enwiki recently under Sweetu Appu Deepu and Sidhu Shubh Shash which needs to stop. -- Amanda (she/her) 19:53, 14 June 2022 (UTC)Reply

Does user name like User:Connex Melbourne and its faulty air conditioning and braking issues acceptable? en.wiki and other wiki policy do not accept such name. I do not aware the policy here in meta. AntanO 05:12, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

There is no global username policy. As far as I am aware, it's because we wouldn't be able to get an agreement on what would be in the policy. The only option we have is when the username contains blatantly inappropriate material. This would not qualify for that. -- Amanda (she/her) 11:15, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

Spambots

Wouldn't it be better to wait a few minutes for my request on SRG? Otherwise every time I have to review the list to exclude those already blocked --Mtarch11 (talk) 04:59, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Mtarch11: I'm sorry, I don't know what you are referring to. I responded to Leonidlednev's SRG report from 3 hours and 20 minutes ago just now. I used LWCU to obtain any that were not on their list. I was not aware you were compiling any information. -- Amanda (she/her) 05:09, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
No problem. --Mtarch11 (talk) 05:15, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

UTRS

Hello. Apparently the bot does not list on SRGP all user-verified appeals? See e.g. utrs:71374. What may be the reason? Would it be possible to get these listed as well so we don't forget about them? Thanks! —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:54, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

@MarcoAurelio: That's correct it does not. It's only currently listing proxy related ones. Kinda like a trial to start to see how it went. If you want we can start adding any type of block that is verified, we can definitely do that too. -- Amanda (she/her) 21:14, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
Ah, I was not aware it was filtering by proxies only. I'd not mind listing them all so these get noticed as well, if that is doable and does not take a lot of your time.
For the future, and if I may suggest a change, I think that instead of opening a new GIPBE section for each UTRS appeal, we should have a specific page or section for UTRS appeals only (sometimes GIPBE is given, some other times not) and use == UTRS appeal from $user ==.
In the long term, I was thinking that maybe the bot could just build and maintain a wikitable with the status of all open and verified requests (and the recently closed ones). A bit of what happens with Global sysops/Speedy delete requests/Data or CentralNotice/Request.
These are, of course, just some suggestions. I do not want to impose at all.
Thank you, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 23:40, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
The filtering can easily be changed. I have to do some minor coding this weekend and i'll hit it then. Bottom part has the basics started at User:AmandaNP/UTRS Appeals. Wouldn't be too hard to add verification status and log the recently closed. And I agree eventually we should head the way that we actually integrate with things like SRG. I think that is going to take time and understanding though, especially with SRG as backlogged as it is. I also have 3 major system upgrades planned for UTRS this summer, plus, I'm hoping further process changes will happen, so I need to cope with that first. We'd likely be looking sometime towards the fall unless there is a massive want by a lot of people for this. -- Amanda (she/her) 00:33, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

Many WMF policies have been moved to foundation wiki and their local counterparts are blanked and redirected. This category should be created to keep everything together.
