Yep it is related, there were some other user names which was used by the same vanal-prone root user. I can send it in an e-mail. Send me a mail and I will reply. Vodomar (talk) 22:43, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

SRCU[edit]

Hi. I answered your questions in the application.Érico Júnior Wouters (talk) 22:44, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Done, although I suppose you were expecting my findings. Sorry for the delay. Elfix 22:48, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for doing, it will be most useful in the discussion of locking.Érico Júnior Wouters (talk) 22:50, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Elfix, what are you doing? Are you not aware of being a knight of a 15 year old of the Portuguese WP? He just became administrator and he is misusing your information about my 2 accounts. What is the problem, what is going on here? I am really surprised here. This is not correct what you are doing. Its a shame on the whole Wikipedia.--Shatabisha (talk) 00:26, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Your information about my 2 accounts....need to say something? Sorry I came to intrude.Érico Júnior Wouters (talk) 00:38, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes of course I have 2 accounts. Is it a problem for a 15 year child?--Shatabisha (talk) 00:42, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Kannst du bitte deutsch antworten oder francais? I think you must go to a doctor.--Shatabisha (talk) 00:50, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Shatabisha, you can keep talking here as long as you want, but it won't bring any conclusion. Elfix made his job by providing checkuser information. Now that we know the accounts are related it is up to pt.wiki community decide about the block. If you want you can use the account "Cruks". Despite it is blocked, your talk page is still acessible. ” Teles (T @ L C S) 01:11, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
There is no reason to block my both accounts, despite all my contributions that I have made in the last time. However. it seems to me, that pt.WP administrators are more interested to block others, instead improving the encyclopaedic content itself.--85.242.120.125 03:55, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Open Proxy[edit]

Just wanna say that, why my pc was blocked for editing any article? there is 'open proxy' you stamp me. just read about it a bit, and still saying what's wrong with me? need an answer soon. thx.

It means anyone can use your IP to edit Wikipedia, which I just did right now. Elfix using 72.64.146.136 10:58, 10 May 2012 (UTC).
and then why anyone can use my ip, am i did something causing this, what's wrong?
If you're connecting from a shared IP (school, corporation, open wi-fi/3G access), it is probable that one of the machines inside of that network is (mis)configured as an open proxy. Elfix 17:09, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
so, can this problem be fixed or that was my last chance that resulting in blocking for editing in years? anything i can do? can i get back my ip or this will always be frustating?!
If you have no other way of editing Wikipedia, you can create an account (or have someone create you an account) and have someone put an exemption on that account, so you can bypass the block. 84.101.246.215 17:40, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Please be filtered according to the Internet in Iran, activate my account[edit]

Hi Dear I am the author of Persian Pddya wiki Because I live in Iran, I'm forced to use the proxy. Some Web sites and pages are blocked in Iran. We see and edit some pages, we have entered the proxy. Of this work are inevitable. Iran's Internet filtering. Please open my account. Wiki administrators are notified of all Persian You can negotiate with them Thank you

Please, open a section on Steward requests/Global permissions#Requests for global IP block exemption to request the exemption of your account from global blocks. Thanks! Elfix 08:29, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Not Open Proxy[edit]

Hi, I keep getting blocked for open proxy. But am really not. My Ip add is 192.168.1.78. Please unblock me. thank you

Why?[edit]

Hi, I keep getting blocked for open proxy. But am really not. My Ip add is 192.168.1.78. Please unblock me. thank you

Hi, could you please email stewards at wikimedia dot org and give us your IP (that can be found using <http://myip.dk/>, the one you gave me being a *local* IP). Thanks. Elfix 17:56, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Merge old meta.* account possible?[edit]

Hi Elfix, i currently activated my de.wikipedia account for global usage. All seems to be OK except for meta.wikimedia.org. There is an old account with the same name that seems to be empty (no user pages and no contributions). I am pretty sure that this was just a try from myselve years ago. Is it possible to merge this account to my global account? --Mahgue 46.115.12.46 10:26, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Unban please. It's not open proxy[edit]

Hello. I ask unban ip addresses: 78.85.38.105 and 78.85.28.36. Both IP are not open proxy. And both IP are static addresses. 78.85.38.105 belongs to me, and on it are two sites (www.pipel.org and www.stihisbur.org), ie it can not be a dynamic IP. 78.85.28.36 owned company where I work - Sarapulsky Electric Generator Plant. From that IPs was not spam. At the moment because of the ban, we can not edit or add an article about our factory http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A1%D0%B0%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%BF%D1%83%D0%BB%D1%8C%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%B9_%D1%8D%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BA%D1%82%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B3%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B5%D1%80%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%BD%D1%8B%D0%B9_%D0%B7%D0%B0%D0%B2%D0%BE%D0%B4 Thank you in advance.

Hi,
I have modified the parameters of the global block on your IPs. They aren't blocked for being open proxies but for massive disruption, cf. <http://toolserver.org/~pathoschild/stalktoy/?target=78.85.0.0/16>. You should now be able to edit Wikimedia projets using your account. Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience. Elfix 18:06, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

72.14.228.129 is not an open proxy[edit]

The IP address 72.14.228.129 is Google Inc's egress IP, which I don't believe to be an open proxy. Users of this IP are probably Google employees. 72.14.228.129 20:37, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

At least at some point it was an open proxy, it doesn't behave like one any more. I unblocked it. Thanks. Elfix 20:51, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Blocking for 3 years without doing any vandalism, harm - Sorry, I cannot show thumbs up for this overkill[edit]

Dear Mr. Elfix, thanks for your efforts in keeping wikipedia clean. But a 3-year-blocking of a legitime user just for using an open proxy - without doing any vandalism on wikipedia - seems to be a little overkill. Using an open proxy for anonymous surfing is refering to the all-mighty US PRISM-Programme etc. an act of self-defense and no sign for illegal activities. So, I beg you to unblock my account. Thanks!

"Your IP address has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Elfix (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Open proxy.

   Start of block: 14:12, 6 March 2012

You can contact Elfix to discuss the block.

Your current IP address is 72.64.146.136. Please include all above details in any queries you make."

Hi. Your account is not blocked, only the proxy is. If you need to edit Wikipedia you need to find an IP that is not currently blocked. Elfix 17:40, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Unblock request[edit]

Hi

I am currently on holiday in France and am advised that my current IP address (199.255.212.200) (used by my laptop) has been blocked on Wikipedia, although I can edit via my Ipad, although this is not easy. As a long registered Wikipedia user, with no past history, can this block be lifted for the next seven days. Thankyou. -- Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 09:55, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Unblock Request[edit]

Hi, I like to make constructive edits on Wikipedia, but, my ip, 69.71.1.1, is blocked globally. This IP is not an open proxy, but, my ISP has things set up in such a way that some of its customers are assigned it, as an external IP. Can my account only be unblocked? Thanks, Zaixionito (talk) 04:25, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi. How long have you been blocked? Do you access Wikipedia with a regular broadband internet connection? Do you use mobile internet? If you prefer, you can give me this details in private by emailing stewards at wikimedia dot org. Elfix 08:21, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
I've been blocked since I switched to this provider, about a year ago. I don't use mobile internet, and, because I live in a rural place, the only option for me is a WISP. My ISP buys bandwidth from a larger provider, and I think that most or all customer connections end up going through the same IP. Zaixionito (talk) 00:46, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
Okay. I understand now. The IP was not blocked for being an open proxy, but for repeated vandalism. I will therefore not unblock it; instead, I have set up an IP exemption on your account. If you are still having trouble contributing, feel free to come back to me. Elfix 08:42, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
A little late, but, thank you!Zaixionito (talk)

A favor[edit]

Hi Elfix. I have translated this to French, but I don't write in your language for long time. Could you please do a quick review of it and tell me if it's ok? I know it's a bit long, so apologies in advance for any inconvenience. And of course, if you don't have the time or don't want to do it, just let me know, no worries! Best regards. -- M\A 17:59, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much. -- M\A 16:01, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Unsurpation on is.wikisource[edit]

I think your usurpation of Io on is.wikisource is weird. Why does this rename not follow the tradition of asking an usurped user with some edits prior to the usurpation, as per Rename practices? Why does it not wait for the SUL finalization? What is the rush?--Snaevar (talk) 19:41, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

There is no rush. The user was asked on their talk page on enwiki and does not seem to be active any more. Elfix 19:46, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

I thought I had made it clear to you, but if you would like to discuss that sensitive matter, we can use IRC or emails. Elfix 20:16, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Well, you probably dont understand me. I am not asking what is POINT on my activity, I am asking what the abreviation stands for. The answer for such question, does not break any etical rules.

Well, meanwhile somone told me, that does are abrevs on English Wikipedia. If I will see a need to discuss that furter than, I will contact you on IRC. Firstly I will read it.--Juandev (talk) 20:59, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello, suite à cette mise en relation je me permets de te contacter pour te soumettre mon problème de compte global/renommage.

[N'hésite pas à m'envoyer paître si tu n'es pas la bonne personne ou si ce n'est pas le bon lieu, ou à me rediriger]

Je ne suis pas un utilisateur extrêmement fréquent, avec pour conséquence la création successive de plusieurs comptes sur différents projets et une gestion pas idéale de ceux-ci, surtout depuis l'arrivée des comptes globaux et le récent renommage de l'un d'entre eux. Mon souhait serait de pouvoir conserver mon username "Calvinius" sur tous les projets, à l'exception de Commons où j'affiche mon identité comme "MartinGrandjean". Récemment, mon username Commons a été renommé automatiquement "MartinGrandjean~commonswiki", ce qui ne présente aucun intérêt pour moi. J'imagine que le plus simple serait d'unifier complètement mes comptes en choisissant soit un nom soit un autre, mais n'existe-t-il pas une solution satisfaisante pour conserver ce duo MartinGrandjean(Commons)/Calvinius(autres projets) ?

Amitiés --Calvinius (talk) 13:38, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Salut,
C'est possible : tu peux avoir un compte global « MartinGrandjean » (qui existe sur tous les wikis) en plus de ton compte global « Calvinius » (qui existe déjà sur tous les wikis). Je ne pense pas que cela soit nécessaire, toutefois. Tu peux indiquer ton état-civil sur ta page utilisateur ou dans le champ « Auteur » de tes envois sur commons (c'est ce que font de nombreux contributeurs sur commons, par exemple Ludo29 et son dernier téléchargement).
Si tu souhaites quand même avoir « MartinGranjean » comme nom d'utilisateur sur commons, voici les étapes à suivre :
  • Te connecter sous ton compte « MartinGranjean » (sans le suffixe ~commonswiki) et laisser un message de confirmation ici
  • Faire de même, cette fois-ci sous ton compte « MartinGrandjean~commonswiki ».
Les opérations suivantes seront réalisées :
  1. Libération du nom « MartinGrandjean » ;
  2. Renommage du nom « MartinGrandjean~commonswiki » vers « MartinGrandjean ».
Elfix 06:59, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Merci beaucoup pour ta réponse ! Je ne savais pas qu'il était possible de mettre autre chose que son username dans le champ "Auteur", je vais donc tout simplement me tourner vers cette solution (comme l'ami Ludo29) en ne conservant que mon compte "Calvinius" (et en m'identifiant nommément sur Commons). C'est plus simple pour tout le monde. Par contre, cela implique de déplacer tout ce qui est aujourd'hui dans le compte Commons "MartinGrandjean~commonswiki" vers le compte Commons "Calvinius". Est-ce que je repasse par la procédure de renommage ou y a-t-il une autre marche à suivre ?
Calvinius (talk) 09:59, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Cela s'appelle la fusion (merge) de contributions. Cette fonctionnalité n'est pas encore disponible, mais je sais que des gens y travaillent. Peut-être que dans le futur cela pourra se faire. Elfix 10:46, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok, mais mon compte Commons "Calvinius" n'a pas de contributions, n'est-il pas possible de lui transvaser (éventuellement même à la main, je n'ai pas des centaines de contenus) les contenus de "MartinGrandjean~commonswiki" ? Calvinius (talk) 11:07, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Alors il est possible de faire un échange : Calvinius récupère les contribs sur commons de MartinGrandjean, mais les contribs actuellement attachées à Calvinius ne le sont plus. Elles pourront peut-être l'être dans le futur. Si tu es ok, peux-tu me laisser un message de confirmation avec ton compte MartinGrandjean~commonswiki ici ? Elfix 15:20, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Très bien, je te confirme donc que sur Commons, les contributions de ce compte peuvent être récupérées par Calvinius ! Merci pour ta patience et pour le travail ! MartinGrandjean~commonswiki (talk) 15:26, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Calvinius : c'est fait ! Tu peux maintenant re-créer ton compte global sur Special:MergeAccount. Assure-toi que ton compte « Calvinius » sur commons a la même adresse email et le même mot de passe que tes autres comptes qui ont ce nom. Tu peux également réunifier le compte global de MartinGrandJean~commonswiki sur la même page en attendant qu'une fonctionnalité de fusion de comptes soit à disposition. À bientôt.

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 15 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that anyone with access to nonpublic information sign the new confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have access to nonpublic information and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. The general confidentiality agreement is now ready, and the OTRS agreement will be ready after 22 September 2015. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain your access to nonpublic information. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation

I wanted to follow-up on an message I sent you in September regarding the need for you to sign a confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 31 December 2015) in order to maintain your access from Wikimedia to nonpublic information.

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are transitioning to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that anyone with access to nonpublic information sign the new confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 31 December 2015) to retain their access. You are receiving this message because you have access to nonpublic information and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015, you will lose your access to nonpublic information.

I am the First Administrator of Sindhi Wikipedia and have been blocked[edit]

Dear Elfix, I am the first-ever administrator of Sindhi wikipedia sd:Main Page. I was the only administrator active since 2006.

Yesterday, I've become victim of a recent administrator (temporary), https://sd.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D9%8A%D9%88%D8%B2%D8%B1_%D8%A8%D8%AD%D8%AB:%D9%85%D8%AD%D9%85%D8%AF_%D9%85%D8%AC%DB%8C%D8%A8 who has blocked me for one year without any notice. I wonder, how a temporary administrator can block a Permanent Administrator. The user https://sd.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D9%8A%D9%88%D8%B2%D8%B1_%D8%A8%D8%AD%D8%AB:%D8%B9%D9%84%D9%8A_%D9%86%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%B2

has vandalized the Main page, removing almost all prominent features maintained be me and has made the Sindhi Wikipedia a Religious Platform with unilateral extremist religious islamic views, without any references.

It is therefore requested that I may be returned all my RIGHTS of ADMINISTRATION back.

Oh I missed that you followed[edit]

Hey man. I missed your resignation as I don't track the SR... pages any more. Thanks for all your efforts over time; I really appreciated your good work and the chats. All the best with the career and RL. Hope that you will still be around. :-)  — billinghurst sDrewth 14:13, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Billinghurst "Order of the Bench"™[edit]

Garden scene on a rural property, Victoria.jpeg Benches: Perfect to sit and reflect upon a job well done
While life's path is full of doggy-do, it is the park benches that we get to appreciate what surrounds us. From your time in the park of Wikimedia, you leave this place being a manufacturer of park benches of quality and sustainability. When you walk out of the of park you can look back and see those benches, populated and enjoyed! That is a legacy.

You will always be welcome to come and sit on my bench.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:33, 20 February 2016 (UTC) (awarded to departing staff and volunteers who have made this a better place)
