You need rollback rights here? This shows the rights of a group that admins here can grant to vandal fighters here. Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:35, 27 February 2020 (UTC)Reply

@Camouflaged Mirage:Sorry, was busy yesterday (utc+8). I think there is no need for me as I have TWglobal and it's enough. Thank you so much for your notice. --Hamish 17:09, 28 February 2020 (UTC)Reply
Sure. Do let me know if you need. :)--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:10, 28 February 2020 (UTC)Reply
@Camouflaged Mirage:No problem and thank you again. That is indeed a bug while using Wiki+...--Hamish 17:13, 28 February 2020 (UTC)Reply
Wikiplus always bug here. Try not to use if possible :)--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:14, 28 February 2020 (UTC)Reply
@Camouflaged Mirage:Will definitely give it up here. See you tomorrow. 晚安。--Hamish 17:17, 28 February 2020 (UTC)Reply


Just in case you missed. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:34, 5 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

@Camouflaged Mirage:I think I sent a thankyou that time but I didn't. Thank you all the way.--Hamish 10:42, 5 May 2020 (UTC)Reply


Hamish, you restored the page I removed because of complaints on it Petar_Turkovićć. As I am new on making wikipedia content, can you please help me with this page. you can contact me on thanks Kiki

@Explora57:Happy to help out, but I think you can just leave a message here. And please note I don't speak Croatian so maybe I can't help you in some aspects. --Hamish 17:09, 11 May 2020 (UTC)Reply
explora57: I saw your name on my page where I wanted to make an article about Petar Turković. I had couple of complaints and your intervention when you restored the page I wiped out. I am a begginer on wikipedia, and I need someone to help me make this first page properly, so I can learn how to do it professionally. I want to do it in English too, so if you can help me to do the Englsih one, then I can translate it in Croatian.
@Explora57:I don't think wiping out a page then create a new one is a good choice, I consider you should merge your edits into existing one, unless the original contents is pure vandalism. However, I've asked a local experienced used for help and you may monitor there if you want. Btw, please place '~~~~' after your message.--Hamish 03:30, 12 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

Hello Hamish, can you delete my user talk page revision history ? ,because the revision contain my real name, thanks.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wikiuser125768 (talk)

@Wikiuser125768:Where pls?--Hamish 07:03, 28 September 2021 (UTC)Reply


If you have any administrative rights, please delete the entire history, thank you.

Just to say hi![edit]

@QueerEcofeminist: No problem. But please double-check their(is it right?) request as it may be controversial, I don't want any innocent person to be hurt. --Hamish
Yeah, that I am hell sure, it's not first time on mr projects and not first time for Tiven2240, it has happened all the time, that, polls were turned by socks of various LTA's operating on mrwiki. It's just that, since last few polls we have been actively identifying and opposing them. Their earlier poll on mrwikipedia [1] had socks too, it's just that, we didn't realize it at that time.

I am not involved in local stuff so I will not express my opinion, but there is one thing I'd say is their pattern is somehow similar in terms of username. However, all my efforts are to make things go right. --Hamish 13:44, 16 May 2020 (UTC)Reply
Hamish, Sorry I didn't get your point about username pattern? what pattern are you pointing at? Your observations could help us more? QueerEcofeminist "cite! even if you fight"!!! [they/them/their] 18:00, 16 May 2020 (UTC)Reply
@QueerEcofeminist: I mean they use alphabets as the prefix and ended their usernames with numbers, this is a part of my consideration when dealing with zhwiki's CU request. Please note that I'm not saying they are suspicious because the username is affected by several causes. --Hamish 18:10, 16 May 2020 (UTC)Reply
Hamish, Definitely pattern in usernames alone can't be seen as validation for socking, But nice observation though. For me, they working on the same set of books and making easy to make minimum edits and at the end voting on poll is enough. Additionally we have [2] this person voting in support, which makes me extra doubtful about the whole thing. QueerEcofeminist "cite! even if you fight"!!! [they/them/their] 01:51, 17 May 2020 (UTC)Reply
@QueerEcofeminist: Anyway, it's their call. Hope things work well for you. --Hamish 01:59, 17 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

Global rollbacker[edit]

Done, welcome :). Matiia (talk) 16:53, 18 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

Congrats! --MrJaroslavik (talk) 20:37, 18 May 2020 (UTC)Reply
Congratulations! I'm proud of your hard work! I've got a cupacke for you :)! Stay safe and stay home! 20:51, 18 May 2020 (UTC)Reply


Thanks for making the request code correct on Steward requests! I just wasn’t able to paste anything from my iPad, even when copying. Thanks again :)--MrJaroslavić (talk) 14:44, 27 June 2020 (UTC)Reply

Hi MrJaroslavić, it's my honour to receive this, thank you and please wait for your new username. :)--Hamish 14:49, 27 June 2020 (UTC)Reply


Hi, I recently put in a rename request here, it seems the username I want to use is already taken but the user only 8 edits on wikibooks and hasn't used their account in 5 years. Is it possible for me to change my username to that one? Debitpixie (talk) 13:33, 31 July 2020 (UTC)Reply

Debitpixie: It is possible, if they don't oppose in 1 month's waiting time. --Hamish 13:36, 31 July 2020 (UTC)Reply
Hamish I'm assuming that 1 month period has begun? Also this username change is for my wikipedia account right? I'm still confused as to what this global account stuff is. I only have accounts on wikipedia and commons, is my account a global account? Debitpixie (talk) 14:20, 31 July 2020 (UTC)Reply
@Debitpixie:Yes, I'll rename your username to the name you want after one month. Your account is now global and an FYI is SUL. --Hamish 14:24, 31 July 2020 (UTC)Reply
@Hamish: Okay, thanks for the information, that clears it up! I'll check back in a month.Debitpixie (talk) 14:41, 31 July 2020 (UTC)Reply
