To do task[edit]

Align the codes on the admin/crat/cu/... and sisters user templates to have a base, and a build


user meta tool to identify User:CommonsDelinker pages and remove[edit]

Time to get rid of the legacy garbage user pages, and allow meta user page to shine through.

Cf. kywiktionary[edit]

Has this report lead to any further conclusions? It seems this IP user resumed activity after expiry of your 1 month block. --Vogone (talk) 16:01, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

@Vogone: Thanks for the contact, I had forgotten to get back there following the block expiry. There was no contact, which is unfortunate. I have been and tidied up, and blocked for an extended period. I also note, and think that it may be related, though will watch more closely.

I also see a little activity at tgwikt from one of the IPs which is probably related.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:49, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

I see you blocked 2804:14C:6585:429A:E9B4:A405:E5FF:F8C0 on that wiki, but have not deleted (all of?) their recent contributions — specifically the ones from March 10th, which I'm pretty sure are the exact entries that caused the wiki to pass 30K again on that date (I announced it with no "reservations" because I forgot I had just questioned similar activity in that same wiki just the month before [as linked to by Vogone above]). Any particular reason you left those pages alone? - dcljr (talk) 02:17, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Same goes for the following users on the same wiki:
These 5 IPs have been blocked as part of your March 24th block of "2804:14c:6590:8cec::/64" but their contributions from early January of this year have been left on the wiki. Have I just "jumped the gun" on this, and you're still in the process of deleting stuff over there? Or are you not sure they're actually the same person? - dcljr (talk) 02:33, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Mass delete failed due to db error, and I didn't have the time to do singly. The older are not in RC, so cannot be mass deleted.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:39, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
OK. So, should I request this at SRM? (You would have deleted those pages if you could have, right?) - dcljr (talk) 06:04, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
They are deletions that are going to need to be bot'ified or handled individually, which takes a little time and patience. These are shared tasks, so either at SRM, or a link to list at SRM are always an option.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:38, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

re: "User:Wiglaf~metawiki/runes"[edit]

You might have mistaken something. This test page is not created by the user itself but an IP address, please delete it, thank you. -云间守望 04:12, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

You don't know that at all. The page is doing no harm.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:21, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #364[edit]


Yes, according to Proxy checker it is an Open Proxy. So 6 months globally as minimum. PS: looks I just missed the meta checkbox while blocking masti <talk> 08:15, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Can you unblock[edit]

He was adding a request, therefore there's no reason to block him. He wasn't inserting Nonsense or Gebbrish. And one last thing, you blocked him for no reason, he didn't did vandalism-- 09:54, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Range watches[edit]

Asking for admin action in Thai Wikipedia[edit]

May I ask: if I have an urgent request needing admin action (and uncontroversial) in Thai Wikipedia, can I ask for some steward's help here? Because I think sometimes the remaining Thai admins are too slow to respond. Thank you. --Horus (talk) 05:13, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

@Horus: I haven't been a steward for several years, if you have a request for stewards at thWP, then you should make such a request at either SRM or SN, depending on the issue.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:30, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Romani Wikipedia[edit]

Thanks for filter import. For the adminship I wrote my application here and now I'm waiting for the community. Is everything fine with it or should I apply on SRP now? – Balint36 🚌 bus stop 22:47, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

@Balint36: Leave it for a week, then take it to SRP. If you tell stewards now, they will just put it {{on hold}} for the week.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:46, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
