Notice of review of adminship

Hello Avraham. In accordance with Meta:Administrators/Removal and because you have made fewer than ten logged administrator actions over the past six months, your adminship is under review at Meta:Administrators/Removal/October 2012. If you would like to retain your adminship, please sign there before October 08, 2012. Kind regards, -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:39, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. -- Avi (talk) 02:35, 3 October 2012 (UTC)


Hello Avi. At Meta:Requests_for_deletion#All_fair_use_files_and_templates we've discussed wether all fair use files and templates hosted at Meta-Wiki should be gone. More than 7 days passed and I even requested closure on RFH however even the notice went archived and the RFD is still open with no comments since 5 september. I'm used to see thoughtful and well considerated closures from you and since you have not participated in the RFD I wonder if you could have a look at it and determine an outcome. Best regards, -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:08, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

I believe that consensus and common sense were in accord in that discussion, and closed it as I thought best reflected both. -- Avi (talk) 02:49, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Thank you - I've started deleting some fair use files. I'm happy that the RfD has clarifyied the situation. Meta should not be a limbo where everything can be hosted. In the next days if there's no issues I'll continue cleaning the fair use categories. Regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:55, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Disruptive page moves

Hi Avraham, I'm an administrator on Hindi Wikipedia. Can you tell me how to rollback multiple disruptive page moves by a single user? There's a user on Hindi Wikipedia who has moved loads of articles to nonsense titles. Although, I've blocked him/her for one month (after several warnings, of course) but still there's a huge backlog of such pages which need to rollbacked to their original titles, thanks and regards.--Bill william compton (talk) 12:41, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

I don't know if there is a built-in command in mediawiki for that; the rare times I've had to fix those (years ago) I did it manually. Perhaps someone with scripting skills can write a script to help fix it? -- Avi (talk) 21:18, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your consideration. Do you have anyone in mind who can do this?--Bill william compton (talk) 04:30, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

On the broader picture of policy

Moin Avraham, I would like to take the opportunity to make a broader point on the RfA-case currently debated by the community in relation to one of your points that not directly (or rather exclusively) linked to the individual case (and therefore I would like to make it here). You pointed out current policy forbids crats to acknowledge consensus in cases like this one and I think that is a very narrow reading of our current policies.

As I pointed out elsewhere in different language, this is an artificial dilemma and - I'm inclined to argue once more- not existent in current policy. There is a perfectly credible case to be made why it is - under current policy - perfectly sound to follow consensus in this case. The RfA policy is obviously not a case falling under the (mainly legal or otherwise WMF-related) limitations of one of our very basic policies; stating:

If a rule prevents you from improving or maintaining a project, ignore it.

We all have been around sufficiently long to recognize that our usually sound judgements on policy-design never cover all aspects of all individual cases under the policies we are inventing. That's what judgement is for and I Think we are usually well-justified in our conclusions. The valid policy I quoted above is in place excactly for cases like this one (if one goes with your finding on where the consensus rests; I have just started evaluating the second argument Marco has put forward and his views are always worth careful consideration).

However, strictly legalistic (and that seems to be part of the trouble), the deciding crat would be obliged to explain how he (as a crat) can justify ignoring longstanding policy - which permits him to make reasoned exceptions casuistically on policygrounds in cases under policy (as this one is) - in declining to act in accordance with consensus under policy. That is the current policy position of this wiki, there are no limiting principles preventing the applicability of IAR in this case, and simply ignoring this fact without proper argumentative justification of such a move is an artificially invented dilemma. Its hard to see where we create anarchism by stiking to established policy (IAR) :), regards, --Jan eissfeldt (talk) 18:44, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Jan. Your position is certainly a valid one. I guess I tend a bit more to working within the system, even when it would be easier and simpler to go around it at times. I will agree that I tend to a more legalistic interpretation at times, that probably comes from years of editing in contentious articles on the English Wikipedia, where, sadly, any false step can be used as fodder by those who disagree with one to push a topic ban through, and where, sadly discussion about merits takes a back seat at times to wikilawyering. That reflects poorly on me, I guess. Sorry. I agree with you that IAR would allow the crat to ignore policy, and in this case, it makes about as much sense as it ever would, I agree, and that is why having open discussions like this are so important. If I were the crat, I'm not sure what I'd do; my suggestions were made in order to allow the RfA to succeed by anybody's standards, but that is just one person's opinion among many. Thank you! -- Avi (talk) 18:58, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
I don't think the different views expressed in the debate reflect poorly on anyone (although I don't share the rhetoric in which some of them are being put forward); I feel I was able to see reasonably well where everyone was coming from so far. It just happen that I disagree with one of the arguments (narrow legalism, if you like to label it) and to be curious about the reasons backing up two points (non-content project Wikidata by Savh & the causual link one might read into the point made by Kylu).
It might also be worth acknowledging the various grey positions folks have expressed, if one likes to put "upholding the point regardless of any individual aspects" and "abolishment of the point without replacement" in the white/black corners respectively. My own comment - for example - said I would support a copyedit to clarify the status-issue. Thus, I'm among the grey :), best --Jan eissfeldt (talk) 19:31, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Abusive reasons for block on Romanian Wikipedia by administrators

If you translate the Village pump of the Romanian Wikipedia you realize that the language used is abusive therefore there are making fun in a rude way about the fact that I graduated the school of engineers, they pretend that I have different gender identities, the use two double sens arguments either "I am a child" or "I am too smart to be a child". There is only one fair comment about me that I have done a lot of good work on reverting vandalism.And maybe this is the reason why some people are so upset with me that not only that they dedicated to have a rude attitude about with an abusive vocabulary but also to block me.I think that you have to check through the proper translation of the discussions that are going on the Reclamation page and also the Village Pump.Receptie123 (talk) 18:35, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Please block user on Wikipedia

Hi Avraham,

Could you please block this user indefinitely for writing some harassing and harmful comments that are really interfering with my life. I am really angry and upset because I know that person and he wrote some inappopriate comments on my userpage. Could you go over to Wikipedia and please block him.

Cheers - EurovisionNim (talk) 05:40, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

English Wikipedia has a its own dispute resolution systems. If you would like an EnWIki admin to look into your case, your best bet, in my opinion, is to request help at w:Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents. -- Avi (talk) 14:30, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Your decision

Please reconsider your decision, because many facts you not review. 1. armenian Wikiquote not have admin. 2. If not have admin then Vandalism is possible. 3. in "Candidates for speedy deletion" category containing 13 article. 4. I can more facts present. If not, block me in all projects for infinite. --Դեմ խմբակային իշխանությանը (talk) 16:06, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

  1. Armenian wikiquote can have admins who demonstrate that there is a consensus that they have the trust of the community, or at least, there is no significant opposition; in this case that was not shown.
  2. That is why we have global sysops and stewards; HyWikiQuote does not forbid them. Vandalism can be reported at Vandalism reports.
  3. Such kinds of requests should be posted to Steward requests/Miscellaneous.

6AND5 in Armenian Wikipedia and other wikiprojects

The following discussion is closed.

Hi Avraham.

There is a conflict in Armenian Wikipedia, which is going on in this project, too. This user is a problem-maker. He was an administrator in Armenian Wikipedia, and Armenian wikicommunity make him leave the project because of his rude and unethical behavior. After that he used to tell, that he left by his wish on 18th of February, while from 13th of February the majority of Wikipedians voted against him. After that he blocked himself. As you remember, there was a time, that he was eager to became and administrator in Armenian Wikiquote [2]. Again, in June, he was eager to come back as an editor, and again, the most active Wikipedians voted against him, as during the three months (March, April and May) he had terrible behavior in Russian Wikipedia, Armenian Wikipedia, Armenian Wikiquote, Meta and Wiki Commons - terrorizing the pages of administrators, scandalizing the persons and the whole project, offending the personality of the Wikipedians, who voted against him. In summary, there are more than 30 edits like that [3] if you need, we can translate them into English.

First, I want to paste here the text I have written in the noticeboard - 6AND5 used to say, that his main work is in Russian Wikipedia (he was blocked there 10 times during 2 years [4]). During his adminship in Armenian Wikipedia - less than half year, he used to behave himself badly. He was a rude admin, not wishing to listen to the advises of the others. After a number of reasons, the last ask was about moving of anti-LGBT flag from his talk page in Armenian Wikipedia, which he refused to do. In the end, I have opened a voting page of invalidating his adminship. When There were 8 editors, in summary more than 60 %, he decided to block himself in 18th of February. In Russian Wikipedia he is a patrol, as the other active wikipedians (1769 of 10926 active). Now he is blocked there, too. The only person, that is eager to make him admin in Armenian Wikiquote, is Դեմ խմբակային իշխանությանը user, who has contacts with him during these 2 months - from 18th of February till now - in Russian Wikipedia and Meta, discussing the personalities of Armenian Wiki-editors and criticizing Armenian Wikipedia and Wikimedia Armenia organization.

Second, he continues terrorizing till now. When "coming back" in June, he deleted his page contest [5] which was full of offences and amusements, which I do not want to translate. He insults 3 wikipedians, then added the forth. When the wikicommunity did not wish him to return, and voted for his blocking in Armenian Wikipedia, he was blocked and then, in his page insults two more editors - calling them hyenas and so on. After, his page on meta became the same, and moreover, he started to write such things to fifth wikipedian, again in meta [6] just yesterday. You can check the pages of admins of Armenian Wikipedia, approximately all of them are terrorized by him in Armenian, and the majority of admins did not even answer. During the last edit he wrote that the user is not male, and he has no rights to be called a man. So, this policy is held more than 4 months here, and before that - the same was in Armenian Wikipedia. As a result of that, he is blocked in Armenian Wikipedia. What about here, we shall be waiting for your possible decision.

And the third, why the problem continues so long. At first he used to say, that he is a patrol in Russian Wikipedia, almost each day, while there are 1789 patrols from 10465 active users, it means - every fifth user. We were respecting his contributions there, as being Armenian, he used to edit more, while the other Armenian users in Russian Wikipedia did not have behavior like that, and were editing much more than him. So we waited him to became calmer - to solve the problem, but even after we did not see any change. So, we do not need to see his behavior any more, and I ask you kindly to block him and delete the content of his page. Cheers, Hayk.arabaget (talk) 09:17, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

"It's all lies" - and that is the only answer of the user, just have a look! And several instances of mine in Armenian Wikipedia. So, in general, he has nothing to say, as my behavior in Armenian Wikipedia is my business, and it should not be spoken about in meta. For this, there are administrators in Armenian Wikipedia, who also, are not respected by this user. Nevertheless, we are speaking about the user's behavior in meta, which is terrible. And we have to do something. What about the factors I have mentioned above, I can give links for every single word. Then the user will have nothing to do. OK then, I have said everything and I will wait for your decision. Regards, Hayk.arabaget (talk) 17:37, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Only in a little top 6AND5's writes can say that 6AND5 is true, and Hayk.arabaget's all writes is lie. And another provacing by Hayk.arabaget, he affronted to 6AND5: "Հա, ու մենք ազգովի մինչև հուլիսի 5-ը (կամ հուլիսի 6-ը) ժամկետ ունենք, թե չէ ավելի վատ է լինելու մեզ բոլորիս համար (սա էլ ցինիզմի գագաթնակետը):" (Yes, and we nationwide have a deadline until July 5 (or July 6), or not becomes more badly for all of us (this is pinnacle of cynicism).) This also violation of Wikiethics. 6AND5 only says that he wait until July 6, to stopping conflict. --Vadgt (talk) 00:37, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Gentlemen, my (or any other steward) talk page is not the appropriate forum for personal or other arguments. If either of you have concerns about the other and about your local project, the proper place to raise them is on your local project. If there are project-related issues that relate to actions on Meta (such as admin privileges) the proper place to raise them is at the appropriate forum (Permissions, for example). Finally, if the problems cannot be reconciled on the local project, there is the option to open an issue on the Requests for comment page here on Meta. Hashing out your arguments on personal talk pages will not get either of you very far, unfortunately. -- Avi (talk) 14:11, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Global checkuser requested

Dear member of the Ombudsman Commission. Yesterday (July 18) I filed a formal complaint by sending an email to the OC (see here). I've been falsely accused of having a sockpuppet and, in spite of my requests, the checkusers at the Spanish Wikipedia keep on claiming I control Pelayo Calderón account. That's not true and, IMHO, the only way to clarify it is to perform a global checkuser verification in order to compare my alleged sockpuppet editions (AFAIK, all of them in the Spanish Wikipedia) with mine (mostly in commons, but also in wikidata and other wikipedias... possibly there are a few records of mine also in the Spanish Wikipedia). I'm perfectly aware of the expiration of logs and therefore I'd like to get a fast response, as it seems to be the only way to clean my name. I'd like to get, at least, an acknowledgement, as I haven't received any news after sending my email. If necessary, I can contact you by mail. Just let me know. Many thanks into advance --Discasto (talk) 21:33, 19 July 2015 (UTC) PS: I'm leaving this message to all the members of the OC. Sorry for the spam.

This is out of the scope of the Ombudsman commission. Our job is to investigate violations of the privacy and access to non-public information policies. If you believe the checkuser tool was used incorrectly, but no privacy violation exists, the proper venue is your local Arbcom or whatever group oversees your local checkusers. If there is no such group, I believe the stewards are the proper venue to address. Thank you. -- Avi (talk) 05:20, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
