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 22.214.171.124, 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. — billinghurstsDrewth 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. — billinghurstsDrewth 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. — billinghurstsDrewth 09:38, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Why are some kids allowed to tamper with user accounts
One of the Arabic Wikipedia users accessed my account as a user and deleted it !! How is it allowed? Why did you not stop him and punish him? My page and my account as a user with you is years old, and I had added it and you agreed to it! BASEL SANNIB.SANEEB (talk) 22:01, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
No idea what you are talking about. Any action at arWP will be based on a community consensus, either immediate or through local policy. Take it up at arWP. At arWP I am just a general user and do not participate in the administrative decision-making. — billinghurstsDrewth 22:05, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
Upcoming: Next Linked Data for Libraries LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group call: Rob Fernandez (Wikimedia District of Columbia) on Listeria, a tool that uses SPARQL queries to define a list, and provides a bot that will update a wiki page containing that list if the results of that SPARQL query change, all based on Wikidata, 08 September. Agenda
"Our admiration for Wikidata and for the people who work with it knows no bounds. Having a single source of well modelled, massively interlinked, well managed data that anyone can query at the press of a button is a real thing of wonder." - says the UK Parliament data team
Fixing an error that sometimes causes Wikidata UI to report 2 error messages when saving a sitelink in an Item instead of just one. (phabricator:T260869)
Development of version one of Federated Properties has concluded! Expect an announcement with timing of the release of this feature soon. Wikibase users who want an early look at the feature are invited to reach out to participate in the pre-release testing round.
Development of the WikibaseManifest extension has continued into its second sprint; we focused on determining a product specification for the Manifest output.
Finishing a draft documentation for a REST API to get it ready for a feedback round before implementation.
Finished improvements to the automated scoring of the quality of Items with ORES. Still need to retrain ORES and deploy the changes before the scores are actually different though.
Upcoming: Next Linked Data for Libraries LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group call: A starting point for newer institutions to think through what is involved in coordinating a Wikidata project, including shared infrastructure, training, and documentation, 22 September. Agenda
Upcoming video: Wikipedia Weekly Network - LIVE Wikidata editing #21 WikiDojo: Facebook, YouTube, September 25
WDQS/WCQS Status update (September 2): "We are planning to spend more time doing some analytics on our data. (1) What are the most expensive queries, what are they trying to achieve and is that reasonable? (2) Do we have performant subgraphs that we could expose independently?"
Continuing to write a draft for a REST API specification
Finishing the remaining work needed to get the improved quality scoring for Items deployed to ORES
Continuing work on WikibaseManifest: Determined the essential metadata that will be included in the WikibaseManifest file, added some new features (mostly MediaWiki metadata) to the Manifest that were requested by the OpenRefine team (phab:T262805 and phab:T262804) and set up a test system that will soon be ready for tool builders to use for testing the integration of their tools with WikibaseManifest
