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)

Please delete & hide User special:contributions/ with offensive language (affront) in Russian language[edit]

Good morning! Please delete & hide 2 last topics with offensive language (affront) here from Cite "отношений со всякими долбоебами (dunсe, fuсkhead) типа Фила Вечеровского". "Долбоеб" = "dunсe", "fuсkheаd" in English, its very strong offense in Russian language. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 2019-6-11 09:30:21

I would prefer to hear from the account holder about how they would like to have their page managed, and I think that it would be better that the instruction is given at enWP. I have blocked the particular abusive editor.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:43, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
    • Thanks! But I want to hide user contributions with offensive language (affront) here
    • Cite: "отношений со всякими долбоебами типа Фила Вечеровского". "Долбоеб" = "dunсe", "fuсkheаd" in English, its very strong offense in Russian language. This offense is not for Wanderer777, this offense for another user. You blocked IP, but I want to hide and delete offenses!
      I understand what you want. I will take my direction from the account holder.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:53, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
      • Account holder want to hide everything except the very first version (2012 year). He write about this on own talk page. It is not so problematic for you to hide offenses.
        Asked and answered; and for accountability purposes I will deal with this at enWP, not here.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:09, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

On the advice of @Tomybrz:, it's enough to have my user pages & my talk user pages being vandalized because i'm a sysop on the french WP. I'm looking for where asking in one go the definitive Extended confirmed protection for all my pages on all projects. Thx for answering. OT38 (talk) 17:03, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Addressing at SRM as it has already been taken there.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:22, 16 June 2019 (UTC)


Hi. I noticed you protected my talk page due to the vandalism, and then changed it to semi-protection. It seems that just now, a vandal managed to become autoconfirmed somehow to get past this. Therefore, would it be a good idea to increase the protection level on my talk page here? Thank you. Diamond Blizzard (talk) 05:01, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

@Diamond Blizzard: I am reticent to put full protection on a talk page as that means only admins can post there, and you cannot. If you are not undertaking business here, and push people to your WP talk page, then I am happy to further protect that page. If you are likely to do business here, then I can add your talk page to an existing filter, and adapt the filter to catch the garbage that is being added. Please let me know which is the better means to progress.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:55, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. Nothing else seems to have happened so far, so unless something does, I think this level of protection is fine now. But just wondering, does extended confirmed protection exist on this site? Diamond Blizzard (talk) 19:19, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
No, that user right, itself, only exists at enWP, so that is not an available protective option.  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:03, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
