A global renaming request with almost 50000 edits[edit]

Hello Hoo man,

Could you please have a look at this request? This user almost reaches the 50000 edits barrier, and I'd rather see you, as a sysadmin, handle his request. Thank you! Litlok (talk) 07:42, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

No renaming between November 20 and November 27[edit]


You’re getting this because you’re a steward or global renamer. The Community Tech team are working on cross-wiki watchlists. We need to add a couple of fields to the localuser table in centralauth database. In order to be able to do this, we’d need to run a script that will get in the way of renaming users. Our apologies – we realize this is getting in the way of your work.

We ask that you do not rename anyone between 00:00 November 20 (UTC) and 00:00 November 27 (UTC).

(UTC means that if you live in the Americas, it will be on the evening or afternoon of November 19 when the script starts running, and if you live in Oceania or eastern Asia, it can be closer midday on November 27 before we can be sure the script is no longer running.)

Phabricator task.

If there are any problems related to this, or you have any questions, please write me on my talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:39, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Blocked from Editing?[edit]

Hi there!

I recently attempted to edit a wiki article, but I was unable to because it said I'm blocked for VPN use until October 2018? Why??? I've never done any spam on here, I only contribute to articles! If it's a matter of using a VPN, well that's kind of an issue because I can't turn it off due to the open nature of my apartment internet provider making it unsafe for me to do anything with personal data.

Is there any way to unblock me? I see on other comments you mention something about an account. Do I have to make a Wiki account to continue contributing? Is there no other way to fix the problem? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2001:590:1405:f9:f9:1cca:fb54:2f4d (talk) 05:45, 13 December 2016‎ (UTC)

Sadly there's no other way (although you might find location from your VPN provider that are not currently blocked). The problem is, that we see a lot of abuse occurring from VPNs, we sometimes need to (temporarily) block them from (logged out) editing. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 10:20, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
