Hello Marco, wish you in good health. Before few days I think that really we need (Rollback) permission on Arabic projects (wikibooks + wikiversity), so I saw Dereckson comment here but I don't understand it very much! I knew it's a small projects but present of Rollback permission is important to fight vandalism that happened heavily there! so what it you opinion? to open a new task or community discussion then open it on phab.? Thanks --Alaa :)..! 12:25, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello. phabricator:T143886 is about enabling flagged revisions on ar.wikinews. If you want to create a rollback usergroup there you should open a discussion on ar.wikinews, get consensus in a valid form governed by local policy and then open a new Phabricator ticket requesting the creation of said group. See SITECONFIG for more information and please let me know if you still have doubts and questions. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:12, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank Marco, I'll do --Alaa :)..! 23:23, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

CheckUser request[edit]

Hello MarcoAurelio, I don't know whom I could call on, I hope you'll be able to give me an answer. It's 3 days since I reported a very likely cross-wiki vandal, using proxies and socks, and asked for a check to verify if I'm right or not. I've written both here and here, but nobody has answered yet. Maybe the fact that I'm an IP user (even if I've also registered a new account anyway) is the cause of such an indifference, but the poblem I've reported is real, and meanwhile the vandal has been going on with his edits behind proxies and sockpuppets... And there's also a small possibility that the sockmaster is an old registered Italian user who made similar or identical edits in the same pages in the past. What do you suggest me to do? May you check it yourself, since you're a checkuser, or at least may you tell the right person about this problem yourself, so that he takes care of it? Let me know, please, and thank you in advance. 13:41, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

-revi is right. We ain't permitted to link accounts to IP addresses except very exceptional circumstances which don't appear to be the case here. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:51, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Mmm, let's say it's ok. Then it's possible al least to link different IPs to each others, right? Since the accounts are just 2 and the wikis where they're editing are just 3, could we remove them from the check and focus on the IPs which are at the moment 22 editing in 16 wikis? Maybe I'll make a 2 single requests for the suspected socks in 2 of the 3 interested wikis, as proxies are involved and in some wikis some ranges have already been blocked. 15:15, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
