irc cloak[edit]

Can you please let me know your irc authenticated cloak name, example mine is wikisource/billinghurst. "monitor" must be one of the restricted commands on the list. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:49, 27 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Billinghurst: My cloak name is wikimedia/Count-Count (nick CountCount) Count Count (talk) 08:30, 28 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Works, thank you! Count Count (talk) 12:28, 28 July 2023 (UTC)Reply


help[edit]

Hi count count

I saw you reported me as a spambot, but I am a real person with a passion for telecom market that’s why my contributions are about this topic. Could you please delete your report?- careerme — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Careerme (talk) 09:44, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

You are spamming the commercial "deal" website internet-offer.ch all over. Your every edit contains a link to it. It does not matter if you are a bot or not, this behavior is unacceptable. --Count Count (talk) 09:48, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
I was using the informative guides of that website because I found exactly the overview for the missing information on wiki pages. Why do you think they are “deal”? Careerme (talk) 10:08, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
They are not a reliable source, see en:WP:RS, de:WP:Q, fr:Wikipédia:Sources fiables, it:Wikipedia:Fonti attendibili. And right on their frontpage they write: "We compare and find the best deal for you. Switch and save today!". So yes, a "deal" website. Count Count (talk) 10:14, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
I am sorry, but I do not agree with your point of view: the website pages that I link are not necessarily correlated with the Deals offered by the section, I only reported their guides and company overview where they cite information with a source link at the end of the page. I do not see any difference with reporting an online newspaper where it is plenty of adv banners and that sell users data for lucrative purpose.
I think that as wiki contributors our duty is to give relevant and complete information to our users with sources where they can dive deep into the specific topic without exposing them to the risk of selling of personal data.
Do you agree on that? If yes, I would request to cancel your report as my contribution are respecting the rules. Careerme (talk) 10:52, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
I don't really care if you agree with me. The persistent adding of one specific commercial website (which is in no way a reliable source) in all of your edits and on multiple language versions counts as spamming and that is definitely not allowed. I am confident that the frwiki sysops and the stewards will share my point of view. Count Count (talk) 11:06, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Chatting to Stewards in IRC[edit]

Hi. I am aware that you are using IRC, though I cannot say that I have checked whether you drop into the stewards channel #wikimedia-stewards. It is a useful place if you quickly want them to block an IP (single or range), or lock a spamming account. Sometimes that is more responsive than having to do other requests. If that is of interest, let me know and I can give a few shortcuts to get things set up for easier outcomes.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:06, 31 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

I have pinged stewards in #wikimedia-stewards before via @steward Please have a look at <my request on SRG> but if there are other shortcuts and/or conventions I would like to know. Count Count (talk) 07:26, 1 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
BTW I am currently working on some anti-spam tools and would like your feedback. One is a library with which I can search the databases for external links over all wikis. I could turn this into a global linksearch web app. The advantages are that it would be quicker (usually < 1.5 seconds) and more reliable than global search which often fails at times of peak usage. It would also not tax the cloudelastic infrastructure as much. What do you think? --Count Count (talk) 07:33, 1 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

IRC Connection[edit]

Would you be able to stabilize your IRC connection at all? It joins and leaves at least 14 times per day. -- Amanda (she/her) 07:37, 22 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Oops, sorry. My bouncer has been out of order for a while and my laptop's internet connection has been flaky. I will fix it. Count Count (talk) 07:45, 22 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thank you for this, but, it's only been 19 hours today so far and we've had 19 joins and disconnects again. -- Amanda (she/her) 22:54, 23 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
Logged out everywhere. Count Count (talk) 01:57, 24 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Congratulations, dear administrator![edit]

Congratulations, Count Count! You now have the rights of an administrator on Meta-Wiki. Please take a moment to read the Meta:Adminstrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, and Meta:Requests for deletion, but also Talk:Spam blacklist and Talk:Interwiki map), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-adminconnect. You may find Meta:Admin handbook to be useful. Please also check or add your entry to the Template:List of administrators. You're also allowed to subscribe to the metawiki-admins private mailing list (subscription instructions on that page). Again, congratulations and welcome to the team. --M/ (talk) 15:25, 3 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Help with blocked domain[edit]

Hello Count Count,

My name is Maria and I am writing on behalf of the company TalentUp.io.

Our main goal is to write blogs on our website about salaries, IT, HR and more! We want to add this valuable information to Wikipedia, as there is little information about salaries in any article we have come across about business.

Our aim is not to be spammers and we have been seen as such. Wikipedia banned our previous account, so we created another one to continue adding value to Wikipedia articles in many languages. This is our first time editing and we may have made some mistakes. However, we are willing to learn and listen to your suggestions to get better.

We kindly ask you to reconsider our domain so that we can continue to edit and add information to Wikipedia articles.

Thank you in advance.

We look forward to hearing your suggestions and working with our domain.

Best regards, Maria and the TalentUP team Maria.Viladrich (talk) 08:47, 16 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Your previous account user:Maria VFC was globally locked for spamming. Apparently you did not get the hint but started spamming the domain in multiple language versions of Wikipedia, again. The consequence was that your domain has been added to the global spam blacklist to stop the spamming once and for all. I don't see a reason to reconsider. Your domain is not a reliable source and the Wikimedia wikis, in particular Wikipedia, are not a vehicle for the promotion of your domain. Count Count (talk) 09:32, 16 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Wikidata[edit]

Tracked in Phabricator:
Task T366414

I noticed that Spamcheck doesn't monitor link additions on Wikidata. Is this intentional or a bug? e.g. d:User:XXBlackburnXx/sandbox didn't get logged, unless I'm missing something. - XXBlackburnXx (talk) 20:48, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hi! @XXBlackburnXx!
Spamcheck should report link additions to normal wikitext pages on Wikidata. I will have a look why this apparently does not work. Watching and recording Wikidata object link additions is not yet implemented. It is on my TODO list for Spamcheck though. Count Count (talk) 05:00, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Well the problem with wikitext pages seems to be with RESTBase requests in general, see phab:T366414. I definitely better monitoring so I can catch something like this earlier. Count Count (talk) 06:15, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
@XXBlackburnXx, I have switched to the Mediawiki Rest API which also works for Wikidata objects. So all external link additions on Wikidata should be recorded from now on. Count Count (talk) 05:42, 14 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Awesome!! I use your tool daily so it will be incredibly handy ;). - XXBlackburnXx (talk) 05:44, 14 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
@XXBlackburnXx, good to hear! If you have encounter any problems with it or if you have any feature requests, please let me know! Count Count (talk) 12:21, 14 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
