MediaWiki talk:OSM.js[edit]

Hi Hoo. Can you please look at this request? Matiia (talk) 20:07, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

Will have a look soon. Poke me if I forget! - Hoo man (talk) 04:05, 24 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - Hoo man (talk) 23:38, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
This seems to break things on wikis which import the script. E.g. on da:MediaWiki:Common.js value for osm_proj_map is set to "kort", but instead it now shows up in an article as "null". Also, WIWOSM object for this article is longer found, unlike on dewiki, which uses modified version of the script. How to fix? Thanks! 09:34, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Fixed for dawiki: Will take care of other wikis using this later. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 09:55, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

IP is Blocked[edit]

Hi, I was going to make a correction regarding the availability of another Bergakyrkan, and my jaw dropped as I read that I am blocked until 2018. I don't have a clue why, unless it's because I now use VPN (since I have no choice because I am in China). I have NEVER sent spam! I don't send ANY unsolicited email, nor do I send bulk mail of any kind whatsoever. This is a tragicomic joke. Something is obviously very wrong here. Please correct, or get back to me. This is not right. At least I deserve to know why. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 09:41, 7 January 2016‎ (UTC)

The block of that range was meant for other (misbehaving) users of the VPN service you are using. In order to be able to edit Wikipedia, you can just create an account on this wiki, as the blocks mentioned by you don't apply here (that's also why you were able to edit this page). You can do this by going to Special:UserLogin/signup. That account will be global, thus you can just use it on Wikipedia and on all other sister projects. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 11:19, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I really appreciate this information. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 03:37, 8 January 2016‎ (UTC)

Kuwat

Since I'm blocked, maybe you can do the edit for us. Consider redirecting Moldavia (d:Q21095978) to Moldavia (d:Q10957559). Thanks. 00:07, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Renaming an user with +50 000 edits[edit]

Maybe you can help me to deal whit this request, please. Jmvkrecords (Intra talk) 19:10, 10 January 2016 (UTC).

After talking back to Steinsplitter (and he talked back to the user), they decided to withdraw the request: Steward_requests/Username_changes#1989.40global - Hoo man (talk) 15:42, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

IP Exemption[edit]

Hello! I tried to add the "{{unblock| reason=Requesting an IP address block exemption, because (your reason here). ~~~~}}" to my talk page to request an exemption, but it wouldn't even let me edit my own talk page. I have to connect through a VPN now and I'm requesting an exemption. I have been a member since 2011 and have never once been accused of vandalism of any sort. Please consider my respectful request to allow this account to edit from blocked IP ranges. Thank you. - Scottwindcrest (talk) 03:25, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

@Scottwindcrest: Can you tell me which block you are having problems with (that is mentioned in the block message you see when you are hindered from editing)? I can probably make the block in question apply to logged out users only, so that you can then edit Wikipedia (and other Wikimedia sites) using your account. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 11:53, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for considering my request! The message I get is "Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Hoo man ( The reason given is Cross-wiki spam: spambot: Leaky web host. Start of block: 22:58, 15 October 2015 Expiry of block: 22:58, 15 April 2016." I'd rather not post the IPs I post from publicly, but it's the range that I'm posting from now. Thanks again for going through this trouble :) - Scottwindcrest (talk) 04:05, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
@Scottwindcrest: I managed to identify the block that affected you based on the time mentioned in the block message you quoted. I changed it to affect logged out users only now, so you should be able to edit Wikipedia again. - Hoo man (talk) 12:19, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
