To do tasks[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 189.6.16.72, 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)

Stuff[edit]

When you have a minute :-) could you take a look at this and the associated Xwiki rep. So far so good. And then maybe run this one - spot the difference... So is the bot not working correctly on this one? Equally is the vast amount of link placement appropriate or is it just me? I was hoping I'd find a pattern in the placement but given the bot reports no such luck. Appreciated --Herby talk thyme 15:25, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

@Herbythyme: As I understand it, the reports need a coincidence of the factors mentioned at the top of the reports. When I get an opportunity I will run report xwiki startups.co.uk through IRC, andt this way it ignores the username aspects (see Small Wiki Monitoring Team/IRC for detail). Do note the "gs" link in the linksummary templates as that does the globalsearch of usage, and my quick way in now.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:29, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Many thanks. I guess there is the additional - if a site gets that much Wiki exposure is it a legit source or simply cleverly spammed...? Cheers --Herby talk thyme 06:44, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Don't know, either way it is back to the local wiki level, so suggest it be raised at the forums at enWP where it can be investigated who like to have a full opinion. It isn't ours to bomb.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:03, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
