alychidesign spam

I think that the filter changes made in late November are now capturing all this spam. If you notice any getting through, please let me know where, and I will see what I can do to further improve the filter.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:53, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

GS and 2FA

Hi Praxidicae, would you please follow up at phab:T211532 regarding the report you have that global sysops are unable to activate 2FA? Thank you, — xaosflux Talk 02:40, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

I will follow up in the AM. I was able to activate it via MediaWiki as I have local sysop. Praxidicae (talk) 02:44, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Have you been able to get any more details on this? Noone else seems to be having this problem when they test, as reported in phab:T211532. — xaosflux Talk 03:46, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Abuse filter helpers

I think that you should apply for membership to this group (as shown at Special:GlobalGroupPermissions) from the stewards, and guessing that it would be through SRGP. If you do, please let me know as I will support the application, even blame me if you wish.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:26, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

RFA in Spanish Wikinews

Hi, I wanted to tell you that you have been nominated to be an administrator in Spanish Wikinews and therefore you need to express your acceptance or rejection of the nomination here. Regards. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 17:53, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

RFA closed. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 01:26, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

updated AF/69

I have updated AF/69 to hopefully stall some of the create.pikto... spam. I will look further at the filters to see what else we need to do. I am noticing that spambots are throwing more benign edits to try to look true.

FWIW we may need to just blacklist create.pikto... or maybe we write a stronger abusefilter just for that. If you think that blacklist alone is the means to proceed, please just poke a note at Talk:Spam blacklist. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:05, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Cross-wiki spam at zhwiki

Hi Praxidicae,

This is 1233, a user from zhwiki. May you please, when you want to nominate an article for speed deletIon at the Chinese WIkipedia, please use {{d|g3}} ? It means pure spam.
Many thanks
--1233 | Questions?| This message is left by him at 18:06, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

To clarify, please use{{d|g1}} for patent nonsense, {{d|g3}} for result of obvious vandalism and {{d|g11}} for blatant advertising material. We can't proceed with speedy deletion without explicitly stating the local CSD applying to the page, per local policy. Thanks. --無聊龍 (talk) 18:17, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Cambodia New Year Legend

Hello Praxidicae, can you please take a look at the above article? Phnom Penh Skyline and some of their socks are creating inappropriate articles there. Thanks--BRP ever 18:58, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Please cancel your revert on consensus page on Sindhi Wiktionary

Hi, I observed that you have reverted the edit by a user on the consensus page of Sindhi Wiktionary, where its currently ongoing voting for a sysop, I don't see it a vandalism, so please revert back/rollback your edit to the previous edit by مصعب thanks. JogiAsad (talk) 17:06, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

My deepest apologies, I must have mistakenly done that! Praxidicae (talk) 17:08, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
I appreciate your rapid response, thanks for patrolling on Sindhi Wiktionary. JogiAsad (talk) 17:22, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Black list on irc-cvn

Hi! I saw that I'm in global blacklist on irc-cvn. Why? I think that I'm not a vandal. Please remove me from blacklist. Thanks!--DiMon2711 15:13, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

I'm not an operator of that channel. Praxidicae (talk) 15:14, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
ok. In this case, to whom I can contact?--DiMon2711 15:17, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
I would guess in #wikimedia-ops, I'm not even a member of that channel currently. Praxidicae (talk) 15:18, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
You blocked yourself and it added you to the autoblacklist. Vermont (talk) 15:25, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Romani Wikipedia

Hi, I'm a sysop on huwiki and I saw you blocked an anon on rmywp (Romani Wikipedia) so I'd like to talk about it and I'd like to ask your help.

There is a Hungarian user named Ђорђе Вуковић who's recieved a global block due to cross-wiki abuse. It didn't stop him because then he was uploading hoax and racist content to the huwiki as an anon and he always change his IPs. Fortunately we stopped him with two new abuse filter.

Now he's unable to vandalize the huwiki but he countinue his activity on other wikis eg enwiki, rmywiki, slwiki and rowiki by spamming his 'demand'. As you can se the recent changes on rmywiki is full with his vandalism. I'd like to help against him (especially on rmywiki because there is only a few user who could notice and revert the vandalism) but I'm just a simple user there. Is there any solution, tool or user group for me to make it more effency? – Balint36 🚌 bus stop 14:25, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

@Balint36: You could probably run for sysop there (I can explain more later, about to run to some meetings today, sorry this will be brief.) I will also help work on a global filter that should help on the samller wikis. He jumps through a lot of ranges, so I'm not even sure a rangeblock is feasible but perhaps you can also share the filter with someone here (Billinghurst?) and they can also implement it globally. Praxidicae (talk) 14:28, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Rangeblock won't work because in most cases he uses public networks (ÖBB free wifi or eduroam network of the University of Vienna). Our filters are a kinda dumb but at least they are working (69, 70). – Balint36 🚌 bus stop 15:17, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Balint36 Brief Proceedure to run for sysop at a wiki: Go to the village pump, can find the page here d:Q16503. Just say you need sysop access (preferably in that language). After 7 days, even 0 votes, you can apply a steward to grant you the right on SRP. It may be temporary, but you can renew after it ended. Hope it helps. A temp sysop is usually more useful in these cases if there are few or no local sysops. Do revert if not appropriate talk page stalking Praxidicae, sorry. --Cohaf (talk) 14:37, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Cohaf Thanks, I'll check out. Unfortunately I can't speak in Romani. – Balint36 🚌 bus stop 15:17, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Balint36 Last comment before Praxidicae kill me, if you are there to clean up, you don't have to speak that language. We have temporary sysops who don't know the language they are doing sysop work in. We in SWMT also revert / cleanup wikis without knowing the language. Due caution is needed only and mostly the local users will be kind. Feel free to ask me about SWMT/ Temp Sysops on my talk. Okay, end hijacking another user talkpage. --Cohaf (talk) 15:21, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Comment Comment Only done a quick read, so only some quick comments. 1) Imported two filters to rmyWP from huWP. 2) If assistance is needed with abusefilter, then I have some expertise, though no expert, though we can find experts. 3) We also have Mediawiki:titleblacklist and the <autoconfirmed> if ne4eded. 4) Re adminship, if you cite in your application that your sole purpose is to clean up a type of vandalism as a means to assist, that is sufficiently contextual for the community to agree, disagree, or remain mute.  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:12, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
