Fête (talk · contribs)[edit]

Salut Quentin, j'aimerais t'avertir que l'utilisateur Fête (talk · contribs), bloqué sur le wiktionnaire (pour perturbation permanente du site) et le wikipédia francophone (pour harcelement de contributeurs) et le wikipédia de sa langue maternelle (cantonais), continue d'attaquer les wikis (Wiktionnaires et Wikipédias) avec les prononciations. Il ne maîtrise pas les prononciations, mais continue d'agir sans tenir compte des nombreux avertissements qu'on lui a donnés (on ne peut plus même faire confiance à ses modifications). J'aimerais que tu t'occupes de lui faire un très sérieux avertissement, puisque tu es d'une classe plus importante, ou au pire le bloquer partout. Merci de ta collaboration. Ĉiuĵaŭde (talk) 15:39, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

Answered here. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:47, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
Cette page te montre où il est bloqué et où il est passé. Ĉiuĵaŭde (talk) 17:09, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
Je note qu'après plusieurs interactions sur en.wiki, il y a un fil sur le babillard des admins le concernant, si tu veux y ajouter tes notes... je ne sais pas si tu veux faire les démarches pour un ban plus large ici ou laisser en.wiki s'en occuper, puisque tu n'es admin qu'ici. Voir le fil. Salvidrim! 17:00, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
User blocked 72hrs on ENWP, hoping to hear from you by then to see if project-wide ban is in order considering the user's tendency to migrate frequently. Salvidrim! 22:03, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
I agree with you. Je ne suis qu'un simple utilisateur, et franchement, j'ai intervenu sur son cas beaucoup trop. Ĉiuĵaŭde (talk) 04:01, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Dear Salvidrim, I was about to answer you on the administrator's noticeboard yesterday, but was interrupted and never post my message. Now that the user has been blocked on enwiki too, I've asked the opinion on other stewards and will probably proceed to a global lock soon. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 09:23, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
OK. Le block sur ENWP expire dans environ 36hrs, devrais-je en demander une extension vu la discussion, laisser aller en attendant, ou croyez-vous que la décision sera prise d'iic là? Salvidrim! 07:03, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
As he didn't stop disrupting projects after my last warning and there was no objection among stewards for locking, I glocally locked his account. If you or Ĉiuĵaŭde could notify the sysops of the involved projects, it would be appreciated. I will tell enwiktionary's sysops, because the comment of Ĉiuĵaŭde just below makes me think that they may not agree with this lock... -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:27, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
I've posted a notification on enwiki's Admin Noticeboard here. Thanks for the assistance. Salvidrim! 18:21, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Le wiktionnaire anglophone ne voit aucun problème sur son cas, seulement pour eux, donc je vais les laisser tranquille. Ĉiuĵaŭde (talk) 15:12, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Salut, je te préviens que Fête a contourné son blocage sur le Wiktionnaire francophone avec le compte Secondaire (talk · contribs). Ses contributions sont pareilles à celles de notre bloqué. Ĉiuĵaŭde (talk) 14:05, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Bug in the stewardcounter[edit]

Hi Quentinv57. Did you know that there is a bug in your stewardcounter tool? See for example mine (see under "User rights changes" and "Self temporary permissions").

a:2:{s:12:"4::oldgroups";a:1:{i:0;s:5:"sysop";}s:12:"5::newgroups";a:0:{}}

And I see this several times. Can you please fix it somewhere in 2013? ;) Thanks! Kind regards, Trijnsteltalk 19:36, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi! I've so many things to check on my tools that I think I will give it a shot... But I'm so uncertain about the future of the Toolserver that I didn't wanted to spend many time working on this for nothing... Anyway, thanks for the info ! :-) -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:44, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

RfC[edit]

  • Hi Quentin. Thank you for your interest, first. There is a summary of the issue, can you read that if you have time? I know, you stewards don't want to get involve local problems, but I think things in Turkish Wikipedia are going more and more complicated in every they. Anyway, please feel free to ask anything about the issue. Have a nice day or night :)--Rapsar (talk) 22:20, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
There are a lot of invitations for this Rfc, but none of these admins gave their opinion about here. See the summary for further information please.--Rapsar (talk) 22:24, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
Dear Raspar, the issue is currently being investigated. I see PeterSymonds made this comment on behalf of stewards. I promise I will follow this, let's just wait some days until Vito Genovese answers. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 19:03, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hi Quentin. I have a question regarding QuentinvBot's operation over SRAT. What is the frequency that the bot uses to remove entries marked as "removed" or "extended"? Just a question because I've been marking some with the syntax but are still on the page. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong? Thank you. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:59, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I think that the problem is the dot, as my bot tests if there is exactly "extended" or "removed" in bold. I guess that if he finds "removed." it's not okay. I agree it's not that flexible, but it's not hurting much too... I've changed it, let's see what happends ;) -- Quentinv57 (talk) 07:14, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll remember for next time! Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:55, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Bonjour. Je suppose que vous essayez d'éditer depuis un lieu public, utilisé récemment par quelqu'un pour vandaliser les projets Wikimedia. Si vous voulez vraiment aider Wikipédia, pourriez-vous fourir votre nom de compte ? Nous allons voir s'il est possible de faire quelque chose pour vous permettre d'éditer tout de même... Cordialement, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 18:50, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Est-ce que vous êtes l'utilisateur à qui j'ai répondu sur Talk:Wikimedia_Forum#d.C3.A9blocage ? πr2 (tc) 19:32, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Bonsoir. Il fallait réfléchir avant d'agir. Vous avez été prévenu à plusieurs reprises, d'abord sur le Wiktionnaire français, puis sur de nombreux autres projets après y avoir été bloqué indéfiniment. Je vous ai laissé un message avant le blocage global, auquel vous n'avez même pas daigné répondre. Pourtant, j'étais ouvert et j'ai cherché à vous aider... Cela dit, je veux bien croire aux bonnes résolutions, aussi je ne renouvellerai pas le blocage global qui expire le 3 juillet, à condition que vous ne vous fassiez pas remarquer sur votre nouveau compte. Cordialement, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 23:30, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

L'utilisateur 64.18.87.72 n'est pas seulement utilisé à Fête. 65.38.92.122 00:14, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

En effet. A cause des vandalismes que vous avez fait à partir de ce lieu public, plusieurs personnes se retrouvent interdites en écriture, alors qu'elles n'y sont pour rien. Si cela vous préoccupe tellement, je vous invite à leur expliquer pourquoi elles ne peuvent plus éditer. Cordialement, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 06:42, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

baleine, Allemagne, kilomètre et tête[edit]

La prononciation du mot baleine en ancien français n'est pas correct dans Wiktionnaire. 65.38.92.122 00:25, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Pouvez-vous ajouter le fichier File:Fr-Allemagne.ogg à Wiktionnaire S.V.P ? 65.38.92.122 12:34, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
La prononciation québécoise des mots kilomètre et tête est marqué Montréal, mais les prononciations ne sont pas à Montréal, elles sont aux Laurentides. Écrire Montréal au lieu de Laurentides est correct ? 64.18.87.72 17:16, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Bonsoir. Si vous avez été banni du Wiktionnaire, ce n'est pas pour que je fasse l'intermédiaire entre vous et les projets sur lesquels vous avez été bloqués. Ce n'est donc pas la peine de m'envoyer des messages toutes les deux minutes pour me demander de faire des modifications. Je vous conseille de revenir dans quelques mois, une fois que vous aurez pris un peu de recul sur ce que vous avez fait, et que vous aurez compris les raisons de votre blocage. Cordialement, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:40, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Re: Spam abusefilter[edit]

Which one are you talking about? In lots of them I see no or few valid recent hits, instead there're some false positives. Many of those filters were created to fight against some specific types of spam (possibly from a botnet or a large number of open proxies). Since they stopped and the number of false positive increased, and to reduce resource usage, I disabled them. Liangent 13:02, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

IP[edit]

I think I was blocked in error. I blanked two pages, but not as an act of vandalism. If you see the edit summaries, you'd see that I was trying to convey that the page was a hoax due to findings on en.wikipedia. could I have an unblock please? 24.236.235.74 23:33, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Global ban of Fête[edit]

I appreciate your following through steward conventions to revert Fai's edit on my user talk page, but I don't personally find him offensive so I've restored the comment. Fai/Fête is stubborn at times but from my experience of him on enwiki and zh-yuewiki I wouldn't agree with an indefblock. A few of us admins at zh-yuewiki actually valued his vocal opposition of many policies and conventions there. He is yet another case which makes me believe in local whitelisting of globally blocked users. Deryck C. 16:26, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Deryck Chan. Fête was globally blocked because of cross-wiki disruption. You can check yourself, and you will see that he has a long block history on most of the projects. He was warned many times and ignored warnings instead of giving explanations. As you may have seen, when I lock his new sockpuppets, I revert his user talk page because he is used to harrass users. You probably don't care about his messages, but I can certify you that some users do (you may find an example here).
However, I did not block him for ever, but until July. As I told him he is free to return if he stops disruption. There is also no problem if a project wants to bypass this block locally : just show me admin consensus and I'll do the necessary to let him edit locally. No problems to allow him to contribute to a specific wiki if there is no problem there. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:54, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm not entirely convinced about the "until July" part - the global block log I see appears to be an indefblock. Deryck C. 01:39, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
The global block on his IP is until 3 July 2013. As for the user accounts he created, they have been locked, and stewards do not have the technical possibility to put a delay on it. An account can't be globally blocked, and can't be temporarily locked. If you have any other question, feel free to ask. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 08:52, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
The discussion over there w:zh-yue:WP:AN#User:Fête is heading towards keeping a ban for "a while", duration unspecified except for an explicit upper bound of 6 months. To that effect, I think all we'll request is that you do remember to lift his global block on 3 July, and notify Fête then that he is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia again. Deryck C. 12:30, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
The global block is set to expire on July anyway... I'll do my best to remember sending him a mail to tell him he's welcome to edit again. Anyway, I do think he will come back himself ;). Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 12:37, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
Also remember to unlock the account :) Deryck C. 11:15, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Unblocking me[edit]

Quentinv57, could you please unblock me? I promise to not make any more spamming. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.3.67.81 (talk)

You have made and broken such a promise before, so I'd oppose an unblock.--Jasper Deng (talk) 20:45, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Were you spamming? πr2 (tc) 20:47, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

No, I don't think so. But this time, I will be sure to fix things properly, and if I even get just one little mistake, you can correct it, but I will be sure to stop myself from doing any harm. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.3.67.81 (talk)

Hi. At the time I'm writting, you are blocked locally on 17 WMF projects. Moreover, it's apparently not the first time you appology. By consequence I'm not comfortable to unblock here, because I don't want this vandalism to spread to the projects where you are currently still not blocked locally. You can nevertheless put a request here so other stewards will review the block and maybe pardon you. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 13:39, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

But I said I would stop myself from spamming if I think I might, unlike before. So what do you say? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.3.67.81 (talk)

Global Contributions Watcher[edit]

Just like to say I absolutely love your "Global Contributions Watcher". I have been looking for something like this for a while now and I have finally found it! Cheers ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 21:35, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks :-) -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:29, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
It's just a shame the toolserver seems to be going up and down a lot recently :< ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 12:14, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
True. To be honnest, I'm not sure about the future of the Toolserver... that's why I was going to move to Wikimedia Labs, but I was waiting that they have a replicated database and that I have the time to move from one server to another too :P -- Quentinv57 (talk) 13:46, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Most of my stuff is on Labs currently, Ill try and remember to give you a poke when the replication is up :) ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 15:52, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thanks ! -- Quentinv57 (talk) 19:07, 11 February 2013 (UTC)


Archiving bot[edit]

Hey, Quentin. Would you be interested in running a bot on pt.wiki for archiving our block requests page? We still do it manually. We can do it in other requests pages too if it works fine.

We mark each answered request like this, so it can be archived (example of archive). In a discussion related, was raised the possibility to leave an answered request on page for a day and only after that it would be archived. Is it possible?

What do you think?—Teles «Talk to me ˱@ L C S˲» 06:14, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Of course, it's possible and I would be really happy to help you. However, I'm really really busy at the moment and already have thousands of things to do for Wikimedia when I'll have some time IRL. So I can do it if you give me a delay, if it's urgent I'm sorry I can't do this right now... -- Quentinv57 (talk) 08:05, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Awesome, Quentin! It is not really urgent. There is an ongoing discussion, but that I think it is not controversial that we could use a bot. I just brought that to know what is possible and what is not (especially the delay on archiving per request). Take your time and if you need any info, please, tell me. Regards.—Teles «Talk to me ˱@ L C S˲» 22:16, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Looks like we have consensus to use a bot for this purpose. Please, tell me if you still want to help us and what would you need from me or community to do it. Thanks.—Teles «Talk to me ˱@ L C S˲» 00:26, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
Hi Teles. For sure, I still want to help you but it's just a matter of time. The thing is that I should move my bots from the Toolserver to the WMF Labs but this is just going to take a while. However, if you really need it quickly, I still could do this right now, but I won't have enough time to monitor what the bot will do once launched, so can you please check it from time to time ? Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 07:22, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
It is not urgent. We can keep archiving manually. It is just boring. Would be nice if you could tell us when do you think you can run it approximately, so community will know how much time we will need to wait. Do you have an idea?—Teles «Talk to me ˱@ L C S˲» 07:50, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
I know that if I don't do it right now there will be a big delay (some months at least). Just tell me exactly what has to be archived (providing some diffs would make it easier for me) and I'll take some time to do it.
The main questions are :
  • Which pages do you need to archive ? Where ?
  • How does the bot know that a thread is done ? There must be some templates (or at least patterns) that are always in a thread that has to be archived and never in a thread that has not to be archived (for example : {{status|done}} for a steward request).
  • How long should the request stay on the page ? (time after the last comment)
  • How much requests should wait the bot to archive ? You may not want the bot to edit the pages if there is only one request to archive. By the way you can also set a maximum size, which will override this number of requests to archive (I had to do it for the steward's requests for global permissions, as some had a really big size and had to be archived solo).
Quentinv57 (talk) 08:50, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Quentin! I will try to answer your questions.
1. Pages to be archived: pt:Wikipédia:Pedidos/Bloqueio (archive of February, of March, yet to be created).
pt:Wikipédia:Pedidos/Proteção - Archive of February, of March, yet to be created.
It is all the same for pt:Wikipédia:Pedidos/Restauro, pt:Wikipédia:Pedidos/Desproteção, pt:Wikipédia:Pedidos/Guerras de edição, pt:Wikipédia:Pedidos/Páginas protegidas. Their archive title follow the same pattern: Wikipédia:Pedidos/<variable name>/Arquivo/<year>/<month>
2. We use a template on answered requests (diff or diff). Will the bot recognize both of them or should we use only one way?
3. Request should remain on page for 24 hours after last comment.
4. I'm not sure about this one... perhaps I should ask community. But, well, I think the bot can wait for ten requests before archiving? We have less than ten requests each day, which may vary. A single request is never too much big, so I don't think we should set a maximum. Those are not exactly talk pages; only requests and evidence that supports (or not) the block. So, sections tend not to be too large.
I hope I didn't miss anything. If there is anything left, please let me know. Btw, I think a bot flag wouldn't be required, right? Thanks a lot!—Teles «Talk to me ˱@ L C S˲» 09:37, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Quentin! Do we have any news about it?—Teles «Talk to me ˱C L @ S˲» 23:16, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Expire date[edit]

Hello, you removed some rights from Wikidata users, who's rights haven't expired yet. I think that we should wait until they actually expires (I mean the expire date). --Stryn (talk) 09:20, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Stryn. Are you sure ? It's written on their confirmation page Admin right to be removed.... -- Quentinv57 (talk) 09:22, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes, but rights should be removed after three months, not any days before. That's ok for all. I think that we don't have any rules about it (at least I don't find, only this), but I think it's fair to wait until three months has gone. This has been done in the past also. --Stryn (talk) 09:36, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
OK thanks, I understand it. I did this based on the fact that these people don't have anymore the support of the community to hold adminship rights. Anyway, next time I will wait for the term of 3 months to expire. Do I need to give adminship back for the remaining three days ? Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 09:55, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Well, don't put rights back, because of this. Maybe everyone agree this, regards --Stryn (talk) 09:56, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Steward requests/Checkuser archiving query[edit]

Hi, 3 requests were archived: http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Steward_requests%2FCheckuser&diff=5242648&oldid=5240073, but the Collingwood request had an active question which was pending response. Could this please be un-archived? Sincerely, James -- Jtneill - Talk 05:03, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi. The request was archived because it was marked as "done" and there was no answers for more than a week. I don't think somebody would have answered, even if the request would have stayed some months more... Moreover, you are asking for private information, which I would personally not deliver as a steward. But maybe others see things differently, so I invite you to ask directly on the Steward's noticeboard, where you'll be more lucky to get an answer. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 19:48, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your advice and help. I've asked here: Stewards' noticeboard#Collingwood@en.wikiversity -- Jtneill - Talk 20:19, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Let's see how this evolved in July. It depends on what each wikis damaged think, and not only on me unfortunately. Feel free to remember me if I forget about this. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 12:47, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Unattached accounts[edit]

Sorry for bother you, but I don't understand what means unattached accounts and why, after changing my name from Nini00 to DocElisa, en:WP and fr:WP are unattached. Thank you. Regards, DocElisa (talk) 15:15, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi DocElisa. You have a unified account among every WMF projects, which means that once you created an account on one WMF project, you have an account on every WMF wikis. So when you log in on a project, you are automatically logged in everywhere. If you need some more info on this, please visit this page.
In your situation, what I would advise to attach the accounts to your global account is to visit the special page Special:MergeAccount once logged in, and follow the steps of the assistant. If you need any more help, feel free to ask. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 09:43, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Yet Another Edit Counter[edit]

Dear Quentinv57,

I want to ask you, would you like to fix the program that you created in "toolserver.org", please.
The program name is “Yet Another Edit Counter” and the problem is located on the giving "namespace" as follows :

  • The namespace "Unknown namespace 100" should be named "Portal".
  • The namespace "Unknown namespace 101" should be named "Portal talk".
  • The namespace "Unknown namespace 828" should be named "Module".
  • The namespace "Unknown namespace 829" should be named "Module talk".

Thank-You Very Much for Your Kind Attention, Your Help and Your Concern.

May GOD Bless You Always!

Hi. I'm not the owner of this tool, so I cannot fix this. I would advise you to contact User:VasilievVV to report this problem, or to use an other edit counter. You could use this tool I wrote (there might be some problems because it's still a test version). Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 16:05, 18 March 2013 (UTC).

Sysop abuse[edit]

Hi, could you please take a look at to this request?Thanks.--Gomada (talk) 11:45, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Gomada. I have read this, but I don't have enough time to check this out. From what I've understand there is an internal war at your wiki, but it is impossible for me to understand what happened exactly because I don't speak your language. Maybe it would be worth opening a new RfC to sum up all the abuses. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 12:09, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your attention. I can show you some examples of abuse; User:Mirzali insulted me and admin Xosere.(here, in turkish language) Mirzali tried to block new user without any reason. Mirzali calls user, racist and ignorant. He attacked admin and calls him idiot, traitor, despot, grandchild of Yezit, he insulted another user as well. He tells users to leave the project. He blocked me today. That is the situation. And some old example from Mirzali; (here) The problem is that, we have 4 users (+Mirzali) who speak Zazaki and we dont want to lose them. Users; Neribij, Azadi, Xosere and i can speak Zazaki, in other side. Mirzali is againist of all those users. We just dont want Mirzali to attack users and force them to leave the project. Its several years, Mirzali controls the wiki as he wanted. Im afraid; If it will be same, none of users will stay there. And i dont want to spend my time with non-sense discussions anymore, coz we already disccused in Zazaki wiki.Gomada (talk) 12:27, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
I've left him a message. Please see at SRP. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 16:20, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your interest. I dont want to talk about politics and waste our time. i just want to contribute on diqwiki and help to develop but it seems impossible. Instead of the pressure/command on me and other users, i would prefer to not contribute there.Gomada (talk) 09:09, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Dear Quentinv57, we are waiting for your solution. Mirzali's last message, here. About insulting, he says its a truth. I think nobody has right to insult users as above or? That means, there is no border for him, he thinks, he is free for all his abuse. And what does I am an honorable man and I don't need tricks like you mean? Will we be insulted all the time and nobody wil stop this abuse? I dont want waste my time with him, coz he doesnt know what he is saying. Therefore, i wait for your solution. Regards.Gomada (talk) 00:07, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Quentinv57, i write you once again because our problem is still in progress. I dont know if Mirzali's adminship is more important than future of Zazaki wiki. But, since his last blocking; user Neribij, user Ghybu,user Azadi, user Seyidxan, user Gomada, user George Animal, and admin Xosere dont contribute anymore. Now Mirzali and his co-turkish speaking user contribute on diqwiki. Is it really normal that an admin is abusing his adminship and nobody does anything? If stewards will not solve this problem, then you should let those users to contribute in another project for their language. There are diqwiki and kiu incubator (another wiki of Zazaki), both are under control of Mirzali. (btw zza.wiki project is rejected, coz its nothing new, user is copying article from diqwiki and pasting to zza.wiki and Mirzali wants to start it again some example of copy-paste) Is this fair? One person contols 2 projects and other can not contribute for their language. I hope, you solve the problem soon. Its a pity if we lose those users.Regards.--Gomada (talk) 15:43, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
Dear Gomada,
I'm not comfortable with removing the status of Mirzali. He certainly had a bad behaviour and should not have insulted you. But this is not enough to remove his sysop status without a community consensus. If he insults or threaten you, feel free to request an other admin to warn or even block him. But I think that it won't be necessary : you should both make efforts to cooperate. I know that it's not easy at all, but that's the only way to put an end to this problematic situation.
As far as I understood, there are two groups at diqwiki, and each have at least one active sysop. It is something cool because it regulates the wiki. Mirzali does not own or control the wiki at all because Xosere (which is on your side, from what I understood) can control what he does and revert him if any abuse is done. I hope you understand my point of view. Stewards have to implement consensus and are not a global arbitration commitee. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 23:34, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
I understand your sensibility. But we cant keep fight forever. I cant waste my energy for something like that. Sorry but i dont want to contribute under command. He has blocked me twice without valid reason. We cant wait for Xosere to revert his all edits. Then wiki turn into a battleground. I know the situation of diq.wiki for a long time. For years, none of new user could keep to contribute there.(please check it now, why there are only Mirzali and his turkish-speaking friend?) There are new users again and it seems, they have been already alienated from diq wiki. There are users who want to develop diqwiki and on other side there are Mirzali and Asmen (Asmen is coming when Mirzali needs help). We cant keep diqwiki as a family project. We need change for sure. (Btw, diqwiki means, it should be written in Dimili version of Zazaki. Mirzali and Asmen are native speaker of Kirmanjki not Dimili. As i told you, there is also kiu.wiki (kirmanjki). New users are native speaker of Dimili.) We should give a chance to Zazaki this time. Nobody tells Mirzali to leave the project. (Even if he tells me and other users to leave the project, but im aganist chasing away coz wiki projects are free, everybody can contribute) But, when he is an admin, diqwiki doesnt develop. You can appoint a steward to check diqwiki for a month. We will write on users page that they can contribute freely(if they are still on diqwiki) and only 1 month, if nothing change then you can say, all those users lie and Mirzali is right. Zaza users need a chance. I think, they deserve it. Mirzali and Asmen have nothing to lose. Coz one of them will be admin for sure. This is not a personal problem, i want to see that people contribute freely in diqwiki. Thanks.Gomada (talk) 01:09, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Can you please share your idea here. Should we just forget that, Mirzali insulted and blocked us? i also started discussion here. Regards.Gomada (talk) 10:50, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi. What Ruslik tried to tell you is that we are not competent to solve local conflicts. We are no global arbitration commitee. I never said that Mirzali's behaviour was perfect, but this issue can be handled locally. There is a community and local sysops who can discuss this matter and decide to warn him, to punish him or whatever else. As Ruslik does, I feel that this wiki can self-regulate itself, and that there is therefore no need to intervene. If we remove Mirzali's sysop status, then we remove every sysop on this wiki. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:57, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes, but Mirzali doesnt care our warning. He still says, its not unsult, its a truth. No apologize. At same time, Ruslik says, there is no consencus. How it will work then? Because, when we leave like that. Who will contribute there? Some steward could at least could say him, dont insult and block users please and let users to contriuteGomada (talk) 11:04, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
Okay. I will do this, but I want you to promise that you will also do efforts to avoid him as much as possible (and when possible) and to be always tolerant and respectful. I know you do not like him and that it will not be easy, but it's the only way to cooperate. In other words, don't insult or even provoke him. Can I trust you on this ? -- Quentinv57 (talk) 12:09, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
Come on, you have talked as i insulted him.(He insulted 3 users) Anyway, i dont need to insult him and i will not. I dont even need to communicate him, if he doesnt block/disturb me or other users. This is not only for me, he should not insult any users or not block them without consensus. He should let users to contribute freely. Btw, if he keeps to abuse, i will report all. Thank you for your understand.Regards.Gomada (talk) 19:31, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi, i hope you didnt forget. Regards.--Gomada (talk) 10:25, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

I just left him a message here. Sorry for the delay. Please tell me if there are some changes, good or bad. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 14:48, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Quentinv57. Thank you for your message to Mirzali. But he doesnt care, coz he has blocked user Neribij today without warning or disscusion. Wikipedia is not a game-zone to block users when they want or? (PS:Mirzali has blocked Neribij that, user Neribij can not even ask Mirzali, why he blocked. In short, Mirzali blocked Neribij's all edit rights. So, Neribij doesnt even has right to defend him/herself?)--Gomada (talk) 15:39, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Error in SRCU archival[edit]

Dear Steward and user Quentinv57 primarily there is some error while archiving on SRCU.SRCU is partially archived and partially still there.The request is to either keep entire SRCU or archive entire.Right now it is half way in between.

Secondly,at the SRCU to breach my privacy and again defend it wrongfully User polkhol has even used circular refence to data mirroring by a blog.After community awareness on mr-wiki we can remove private data on our own but on Meta we are helpless .Please do guide .


Warm regards

Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 12:37, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Dear Mahitgar,
I just restored and reopened the request. I know Shizhao did not answer the raised concerns, so I will do it as soon as I'll have some time to read and understand everything. As for the private informations that you mention, just contact a steward privately (IRC, mail or OTRS) to ask him to remove the private data you are concerned about (please read the oversight policy if you want to know what can be suppressed or not). Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 07:07, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your valuable guidance.Actually I am not necessarilly looking for complete oversight but a simple deletion so that private info does not come in direct search results.I am a Gandhian by principle as many times people make mistake that many times I educate them, I belive in educating and awareness and i want to send signal to community about what is right and what is wrong. For stewards ref I have given fresh statement at SRCU I hope that will make my request more clear.
Regards
Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 14:29, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
Dear Mahitgar, the private info have been removed and the request reviewed. If you need any clarification, please let me know. I also heard while reading each statements that there are regular abuses on mrwiki. So feel free to ask our help if an investigation is needed. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 22:07, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
Point is noted . Will discuss and keep you informed on this.When studied archival page found some error still exists on archival page.Pl. look into the same as time perimts.

Fundraising translation feedback[edit]

Hey Quentinv57,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback in french using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

Many Thanks

SUL Upgrade[edit]

Hey, I was wandering, if it is possible to add a new row with the total amount KB added by user per project? Since the edits can be counted, maybe it won't be hard to calculate the KB added and substracted by user, what do you think?.3BRBS (talk) 15:36, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry, but it won't be possible, at least part of this tool. Now my tool checks the number of edits on every projects. What you're asking for requires to check every edition and to compare it to the previous version to calculate the added size. This would take a lot of time and resources to handle, for a limited interest. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:52, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
Oki, I though it was very interesting, since one can make few edits with a lot of KB's, or hundreds very light, anyways, I see it can be complicated, thanks for the prompt reply!--3BRBS (talk) 19:14, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Policy of diq-Wikipedia?[edit]

Dear Quentinv57! It was not me, but Xosere with this alleged policy reason as follows. According to the policy of this Wikipedia, we only write in Zazaki. For communications in English (or any other questions other than in Zazaki), please write on our Embassy page. I just pointed out as his friend asked me for a reason. It is his work and there's no voting about it. My real warning to the blocked person (Neribij) was "Please, stop Kurdish ethnocentric deformation!". A day earlier, the user Takabeg was blocked by Xosere, because Takabeg accused justifiably him and his Kurdish oriented friend Neribij pushing of Kurdish ethnocentric POVs. This message was also deleted by Xosere and he opened himself an embassy side with the above mentioned reason. Greetings! -- Mirzali (mesac)

  • Hi, Quentinv57. diq:Karber:Mirzali's comments above are right. Mirzali blocked Neribij because of his/her Kurdish ethnocentric deformations. User:Neribij abused and is abusing SOAPBOX, NPOV. Even in Turkish Wikipedia, Neribij abused and continues abusing SOAPBOX, NPOV and his/her ethnocentric behaviors were reported here and we are discussing on interproject Kurdish ethocentric actions of Neribij and Gomada. I'm neither Zazaki native speaker, nor Turkish native speaker. But I've learned Turkish language and most of all users at Zazaki Wikipedia know Turkish language. And I'm learning Zazaki language now. But I cannot make sentence in Zazaki language at the moment. So I communicated in Turkish language with other users on Zazaki Wikipedia.

What a pity! You both (Mirzali and Takabeg) turned Wikipedia to a game-zone. Sorry, Quentinv57 for distrubing. I really dont want to waste time anymore with Takabeg. He is not Zaza, but he wants to criminalize Zaza users. What is Kurdish ethnocentrism? Zazas live as they are, stop to blame them. If you will have comment about Mirzali's abuse, you can comment here. No more discussions on Quentinv57's page. (PS: Takabeg, plz dont try to decieve people anymore. If Quentinv57 could understand Zazaki, he could see it easier what you do. For example; in article of Kurdistan (rojname) Xosere and i reverted your edit (but you kept to revert without discussion), coz there is already information in article but for your propoganda, you repeat same info, so you just have duplications in articles. You dont care the quality. See 1, 2, If you could speak Zazaki, you would stop to copy-paste. Dont forget please, Wikimedia projects are no materials for your propaganda, if you want something political, you can have your own website or blog.)--Gomada (talk) 08:39, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I've already understand that there is a war on your local wiki between two groups, but I'm not the one who's going to solve it. Simply because I'm not member of an arbitration commitee and I don't understand your language so I cannot see who's right and who's wrong. But, for goodness sake, please solve your problems by discussing. You clearly don't need to use sysop tools to block others. The only way to stop this would be to start a productive and cooperative discussion. I hope you are wise enough to do this. If you need some help to do this, feel free to ask. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 16:29, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi Quentinv57. Its good to be hopeful but today the wiseman (user:Mirzali) insulted me in turkish again. (If its not problem to tell, i would really like to know Mirzali's age. Adult people solve problems by insulting?) His wise turkish speaking friend/advocate can translate Mirzali's swearwords for you. Lets be hopeful one more time that, Takabeg can once tell Mirzali stop to insult users. As i said, i keep to report his abuse here.Regards.--Gomada (talk) 21:37, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi. It's a good idea to continue to report everything going wrong to the RfC to keep a trace of what's going on. If Mirzali insults people, it's still a local affair that has to be solved locally. While speaking a language is not a good reason for blocking, repeated insults after warnings is clearly one. About Mirzali's age, it is a private information so it cannot be revealed without his consent. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 22:09, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

I assume you wrote to me due to a complaint from Rodrigo. Let me explain something. We have only two admins, and the other one is basically never around. "Regras para imagens" has been unprotected for a long time now and was never protected for more than a day. The problem is actually Rodrigo, who is not interested in following the manual of style or many other existing policies. These are not typical "edit wars" of opinion, but rather the issues are things which are already settled by our manual of style or other policies, and occur because he insists that the rules are illegitimate, non-existent, or that he should be allowed to break them without having his contributions corrected (at which point he begins reverting them to his non-conforming version). This user has been blocked numerous times on wikipedia and had complaints filed about him on meta for various issues, particularly rudeness, and on WV he has made a lot of ruckus trying to throw out pretty much every guideline we have, including nominating various policy pages for deletion (including our image policies, first-person pronouns policy, HTML policy, and even our nomination-for-deletion system itself), and fought hard against a lot of other rules that keep our site presentable and consistent. In every case I have tried to discuss with him, pointing out our process of discussion and consensus when guidelines need to be changed, but he has refused to go about things that way, preferring instead to attack me personally (and other contributors), ad hominem rants with swear words, making many and repeated false accusations (such as accusing me of sock puppetry), and in general trying to defame me as an admin so he can get his way. Incidentally, he has been rude with a number of users on en:wv as well. This user is essentially behaving like a troll, and I am doing my best to control the damage. I have been an admin over this project for about 7 years now, on both en: and pt:, and have never been accused of abusing my tools. I am a highly respected contrubutor on both sites, and have never had major problems with anybody until this Rodrigo came along. As I see it, due to the very low traffic on the site at the moment, I am basically alone in keeping things in order there, and to not revert this guy's changes would amount to indefinitely keeping undiscussed policy changes and non-MoS-compliant editions. I'm doing my best here. If you know of another way to single-handedly deal with a persistently rude editor who does not wish to follow our guidelines or respect our collaborative processes, please let me know, preferably on my en:wv talk page. Texugo (talk) 12:14, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your point of view, Texugo. I will answer on your ptwikivoyage page because the issue has nothing to do with enwikivoyage.
It's hard to understand who's right and who's wrong here. It's never easy to be the only sysop on a project, because you sometimes have to do what you should not do as a good sysop... Can you just prove me that the rule you're adding here has been properly accepted by the community ? If true, the page can be left protected. If not, the protection has to be removed and the last revision restored. Thanks. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 13:04, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
As I stated, the page has not been protected for a long time. Here is the story:
From the beginning in 2005 or 2006, pt: has always adopted the same image policy as en:. At that time, the image policy was translated from en:. Neither site had an explicit policy against montages, but in practice montages were never allowed on either en: or pt: - they have been consistently disallowed from the beginning. In 2009, en: finally put this into writing on their image policy page (no discussion was had there either, since it was well-established practice). On pt: however, the practice has always continued of not allowing montages, but this was never formally put into writing as it was on en:. This is evidenced by the fact that none of our pages contain montages. When I added that line to the image policy page, I was not creating any new practice, only explaining the existing practice. Allowing montages now by default, for the first time in the history of the project, would represent a real change in direction for the content of the site. Rodrigo would like to use such technicalities to introduce montages (and other things we have never allowed), but in reality the change would involve the sitewide introduction of something that has never been allowed, so it should be discussed and consensus reached before we introduce it.
The site as we inherited it from WT is our starting point, and if we are going to change the way we do things, we need to have good reasons and good consensus for changing them. Rodrigo does not accept this and would like to argue that we should simply throw out any and all guidelines and practices which have not gained a new consensus. However, we do not have a robust enough community to discuss anything thoroughly at the moment, and throwing out all our policies by default would simply result in anarchy, and would completely destroy all the consistency of our current content. Texugo (talk) 13:34, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
I see your point. But Rodrigo's opinion has also to be taken into consideration, and is not stupid. You just disagree and need to find an agreement, that's all. What I can advise you is to officially propose to the community to discuss and vote to adopt the following rule :
All rules from the main project en.wikivoyage will be adopted by default, and would not require a specific vote here.
If the community wants a rule set on en.wikivoyage not to be applied at pt.wikivoyage, they will have to start a vote, and if less than 50% agree with the rule, it will not be adopted. If the rule is new (adopted on en.wikivoyage less than 2 months ago), it won't be applied to en.wikivoyage before the end of the debate.
This statement is to be removed as soon as the community of ptwikivoyage is big enough and show a consensus to remove it.''
Just talk with other people and explain your point of view. I talked with Rodrigo, he's not stupid, he should understand it and cooperate. Please keep me posted ;-) -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:34, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Listen, I think your response would be completely reasonable if we had enough of a community to discuss such things, but basically we only have me and Rodrigo, plus two guys who generally barely get involved much in these conversations. I can already tell you that Rodrigo responds to any idea from en: with total disdain and that proposal will not get anywhere. Even it if passed, with only two people interested in discussing things, it would give license for Rodrigo to throw out any rule he wished. I wish we had more people to discuss things calmly and rationally. I don't think he is stupid, but he has a total lack of respect for my opinions and has called me stupid and worse plenty of times - He has already shown that he is not capable of a calm rational discourse without insulting people, making false accusations, cursing, and trying every nasty trick in the book to get his way. If you could read all the many discussions Rodrigo and I have already had, you could easily understand that encouraging him amounts to feeding the troll. While his line of argument continues to be that all 90+ policy pages are somehow obviously illegitimate and idiotic and should all be eliminated until further notice, we are not going to reach any kind of agreement.
Without a community large enough to have balanced discussions or reach a consensus on anything, we really shouldn't be trying to enact sitewide changes, not by 2-person consensus, and certainly not by the technicalities of omission. Wikivoyage has always had a strong status quo bias where introducing new changes that affect large numbers of pages requires consensus. Rodrigo needs to accept that his desired changes (montages, use of first person pronouns, changing formatting of listings, use of html, change in deletion process, etc.) are big changes that affect all our content, and thus need to be discussed and agreed upon beforehand, and that this low-traffic, low-participation time is probably not the best time for high expectations in that regard. Moreover, what he needs to learn is how to discuss such issues based on logic and reasoning, not on character attacks, insults, indignation, and generally disparaging the opinions of others. Texugo (talk) 11:22, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Incidentally, the current status quo is that content on pt: is currently compliant with en: policies, since that is how it has always been done, albeit without the written clause you proposed. Texugo (talk) 11:37, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Also, I don't much like that fact that Rodrigo is talking to you in private at an undisclosed location while I am talking to you here out in the open. I would like to see exactly what accusations are being made so I can perhaps send you (and Google translate) to specific discussions for further reading of how Rodrigo has behaved on these topics. Texugo (discussão) 11h52min de 30 de abril de 2013 (UTC)

Wikivoyage[edit]

Hello Quentinv. I'm the other sysop in pt.wikivoyage and i've been i bit busy studying. I want to help with the situation there. The problem is that both users are stubborn in their opinions. If I can do something leave me a message as pt.wikipedia or pt.wikivoyage. Thank you. Gusta (talk) 01:15, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Gustavo, the difference is that I am stubborn in following the guidelines and practices and the processes for changing them, and Rodrigo is stubborn in refusing to follow or even acknowledge them, trying to subvert them, and trying to change them through any means other than rational discourse and consensus, all while being exceedingly rude about it. Do you really not see this difference? Texugo (talk) 13:22, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
You guys can't reach consensus, that's why stubborn. I did not meant to offend anyone. Gusta (talk) 15:43, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
No offense taken. For what it's worth, en: has been unable to reach consensus for change on the same issues, despite having far more contributors. On pt: where we have only 2 and occasionally up to 4 people discussing, it is not really surprising that we haven't come to an agreement on those topics. Moreover, one of the problems with Rodrigo is that he aggressively tries to enact changes which have not reached consensus, by trying to deny, delete, or delegitimize policies and practices he does not like rather than discuss rationally to build a consensus for changes. . Texugo (talk) 17:05, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Hi Gusta. I'm really happy to see you comming back. If you could solve this problem by being a neutral arbitrator, it would be really nice. I'm sure you will be far more suitable than me for this role, because you know the language and the project. I would like to know if Texugo and Rodrigo agree with the proposed solution. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 19:04, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
I appreciate Gusta's involvement, but I would really appreciate it if you would continue to participate in the analysis of these problems as well, as they are far more complex than a simple "let´s compromise", and you have a great deal more experience at these kinds of things than Gusta does, and as a temporary sysop with low involvement in the project, it is hard to say how familiar Gusta may be with the project and its policy implementations. Plus, I do not even know what a neutral position would be between a sysop who is just following the policies and a rude guy who actively and aggressively opposes the existence of policies. Texugo (talk) 19:38, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Texugo, I know the project. I would like Quentiv as well but if he is too busy I can naturally do it. No offense taken by being only a temporary sysop. Gusta (talk) 20:04, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Of course I can still help here if needed, but I just don't have enough time right now to completely understand who is wrong/true. Anyway I think that nobody is wrong : you just simply have different opinions and have to agree on something. For example, I think that creating own rules is not more stupid than importing the rules from an older project. By the way, the word "rude" isn't really needed here if you want to cooperate... -- Quentinv57 (talk) 20:40, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Ok, so i'm going to do it, and then if I need help i talk with you, ok? Gusta (talk) 20:57, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, thank you. Just try to stay as neutral as possible. If you could bring new contributors to the project, it may also help. A biggest community would maybe solve this, as we just need more input to give reason either to Rodrigo or to Texugo. Feel free to come if you need any help -- Quentinv57 (talk) 07:05, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

I would like you to know that I was using the word "rude" in the strictly objective sense- someone like Rodrigo, who will tell you to "f. off" in an edit summary and who regularly uses curse words in discussion is actually rude, and there is no other word to describe it. I would like you to consider the possibility that you are giving him too much credit. He contacted you and pretended to be an honest nice-guy victim, but he is actually trying to use you to get what he wants. In his dealings with the community, he is actually extremely aggressive, viciously combative, does not assume good faith, and yes, he is rude. Offensively so.

As to "nobody is wrong", well I agree with you to an extent - creating our own rules would not be more stupid than importing the rules from an older project, and I am completely willing to discuss any proposed new rules or changes to existing ones. What I am not willing to do is instantaneously throw out our existing practices and 90+ policy pages and let the site denigrate into a free-for-all until some distant future where we have a community robust enough to discuss and reimplement policies one by one, and Rodrigo is the only one essentially clamoring for us to do that. While it may not be objectively "wrong" to hold that opinion, it certainly does not put him in the position of being a useful contributor who respects the site as it currently exists. There may be technically no "right" or "wrong" opinion, but there is certainly such a thing as right or wrong behavior, and Rodrigo's actions fall squarely in the "wrong" category. He brings an amazing amount of negativity to the site, does everything he can to subvert our foundations, curses, attacks everyone who disagrees with him, tries to frame people, makes blatantly false accusations, and generally behaves as if he has the right to do anything he wants. As I have stated elsewhere, practically every edit he has made since January has been hostile protest or intentional violation of one guideline or another. I am not really sure what even keeps him coming back; he seems to vehemently hate almost everything about the site. I and others have tried many many times to have reasonable conversations with him, but it always comes back to his complaints, insults, and angry demands for a site with no rules where he can do what he wants. It is very difficult to deal with this guy.

If you have not read my responses to his accusation page and the remainder of the conversation you started on my WV talk page, please read them if you get a chance. Thanks for your help! Texugo (talk) 22:23, 2 May 2013 (UTC) Texugo (talk) 22:23, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I do have already read your answers. By the way, it's not because he insults you that you have to do the same. If he's insulting or attacking you in any way, feel free to come and see me (or Gusta). He may have a different point of view from yours, no problem with that at all, but has no right to attack you. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 07:09, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Please note that I have never insulted him in any way. Rodrigo claims that any time he is being called out on his bad behavior and asked to stop, that he is the victim of insults and personal attacks, always trying to dramatically revert the blame and play the victim. It's not only me, either. Typical exchanges amount to this:
Other user: Rodrigo, it is rude and unacceptable to curse here.
Rodrigo: I'm insulted! How dare you call me rude! You've attacked me!
Other user: Rodrigo, stop saying X about me. It is not true.
Rodrigo: Oh my god, I've been called a liar! Stop insulting me!
Other user: Rodrigo, your behaviors X, Y, and Z exactly fit the wikipedia definition of a troll and are therefore unacceptable. Please do not continue this behavior.
Rodrigo: You, you've attacked me! You called me a troll! Why do you always attack me?
In no case has he ever stopped to apologize for his behavior, or to consider or change it, and usually he tries to, as soon as possible, find a situation in which he can try to use the exact same language of criticism to make false claims against his "opponent", sometimes even verbatim.
I'm sure that at least users Ibaman and Teles could back me up on this. That I am aware of, there is not any user who does get along with Rodrigo. All of us including Gusta have been the object of his attacks.
I would encourage you to be less sympathetic to Rodrigo's claims of being a victim. Texugo (talk) 11:11, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
I never said that Rodrigo was a victim, just that he may not be totally wrong. As I already said, if he attacks you or somebody else, just come and see me with a link to the insulting message if nobody wants to handle this locally. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:54, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Will do. But I would like you to consider the possibility that he may indeed be wrong. We are not a huge wiki, but we do have over 3000 articles and a lot of what we do have is well-developed, consistent, and rigorously curated, and everybody else is following our policies. For Rodrigo to simply call it all a "pile of crap" and go about insisting on non-compliant edits and reverting others' corrections as if the entire organization of the wiki up to this point is completely illegitimate and does not apply to him - that is not acceptable behavior on any wiki. He is certainly free to believe that a wiki with no rules or organization would be better, but on any wiki which is already established to this degree, it is clearly wrong to stay around acting as if no rules apply to him. I cannot think of any other wiki where blatant disregard and repeated refusal to comply with well-established policies and style manual would not be considered "wrong".

About block[edit]

Do not think it was abuse, but I think you erred in using the tool. Because administrative tools should not be used as punishment, but a way to protect the community, which was not the case, which would not be repeated, because I was already living.

Another thing, it became clear that several rules were imposed, without any discussion, and somehow you instead of solving the problem may have encouraged this kind of action, because now it's as if you had said, it's okay to do what they do, but this is wrong counter attack that...

The Wikivoyage-pt became less salutary to editing all Wikimedia Movement, and there is nothing being done to fix this, thank you for encouraging this. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 04:25, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

You're welcome, Rodrigo. Please note that I didn't encourage one or another point of view (and you can read the long discussion just above, when I repeated it a lot). What I couldn't do is letting you insult other contributors freely, without saying anything. I can tell it one more time : you are free to contribute to this project and to give your opinion, but you have to respect other users. If you do not, I can't do much for you. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 08:27, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Suite me, is not a legal thread, this was stupidity... he acted like an idiot, and I have no patience for this kind of thing, and if you knew Portuguese, you would know that this word has the same weight of silly. And that's what I told you via IRC, stewards should ask the community before acting, and Texugo could have done something, he is active.
And no, I can not freely contribute to the project, all my edits undergo revision, and if unauthorized, are summarily removed without discussion, and if I start a discussion, I am attacked, and when I asked you to do something, you have reinforced my non-participation.
I'm exhausted, I've done this community come to the fore to become what it became, this is a crap... Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 18:03, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
I ask permission to elaborate on this discussion. I present myself Ibaman, an active user of the community, also a Brazilian federal civil servant, assigned to law enforcement duties. I testify in good faith that user R T A has never behaved in an acceptable way as a member, and has even committed in print several offences of the Brazilian Penal Code, willingly and repeatedly. I stand ready for any further questioning anyone may have concerning this matter. Regards, Ibaman (talk) 23:33, 5 May 2013 (UTC) 00:09, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
And this is a legal thread, as he did in wy-pt 3 or 4 times... and for that I said "suit me". And this is the environment that we edits... Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 04:34, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
Dear Ibaman, thanks for sharing your point of view. Of course you're free to participate, but I would prefer if you could be logged in for the next answers, to show that the messages really come from you.
Rodrigo, I still don't see a legal threat in this... and even if it was one, I assume that somebody has still the right to say that he wants to sue somebody else. At least in my country, this kind of things is neither forbidden nor perceived as a personal attack... On the contrary, calling people "mongols" and "idiots" clearly is. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 04:46, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
  • I comply and stand by my words. Ibaman (talk) 07:51, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Rodrigo is showing bad faith in erasing all the messages sent for him by me, in one summary he says: taking bullshit (bobeiras in portuguese) away. Rodrigo is not trying to discuss, as i see he is just offending everyone. Gusta (talk) 17:34, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
  • pt:Wikivoyage has just sustained a severe vandalism attack; the pages attacked, and patterns of attack, smell of clear evidence pointing to user R T A. The IP number responsible, blocked for 1 day at 01h45, is consistent with similar identical attacks performed yesterday. Ibaman (talk) 04:56, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
    OK. Thanks for the information. I have to go now, but will look into this while back. Gday, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 05:18, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Do the check user with you want... I know you need my permission to run for an IP, there is, authorized.
and this? This not a thread? Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 17:44, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
At least it is unnecessary provocation. I would really like you (Rodrigo and Ibaman) to be a little more cooperative. Remember that you are both vounteers to help this project growing up. It's okay to spend some of my free time to help you resolve your conflicts, but I'm not here to play the police. Good night, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 21:51, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
  • A third similar attack has just happened; at this point, it's my official duty to report in no uncertain, crystal clear terms, that a real official "wikitrolling" fiscalization (a word with an economical denotation in English; one more related to unostensive law enforcement in the Brazilian legal vocabulary) operation, of which I can speak no more, has been authorized; any consistent results will be promptly delivered to every competent State Police Deptartment inside the country. The Brazilian Law is not to be mocked. Ibaman (talk) 02:22, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Just to keep you informed[edit]

Hi,

Seasons Greetings

In continuation with our previous discussion about Marathi language at mr Wikipedia,now we do have an up-to-date and good enough and efficient edit filter management system in place to deter most of abuse language, defamation and abussive accounts etc .

We at mr wiki believe in core wikipedia value of prevention rather than punishment to spam and abuse and we are apropriately acting upon the same.

While working on abuse filter system management not only we have remported problematc bugs but also several enhancement bugs .Hopefully those will help several other wiki's too.While improving our edit filter system as much we studied edit filters from range of many language wikis , we also developed our own innovative and efficiant usefull systems too.If time permits I do have plan to work on meta to create some good edit filter related help pages.

Thanks for your kind support you provided at bugzilla last time. Best wishes and thanks

Any chance you have the real SVG file, or at least know where it is? That one above is just a PNG image pasted into an SVG document, so it's not really useful.

Any possibility you could help me with that? :) odder (talk) 19:29, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi Odder. At the time I did this, I didn't know about the SVG format, and simply pasted the PNG file version into a SVG. Sorry for that.

Hi. I guess that there is a reason to do it if I've done it... It's for the same reason that SRAT and IN are fully protected.

This list is included in the Checkuser Policy, and the information in it needs to be reliable. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 19:27, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
I suppose, but considering that the edit was from an IP, perhaps semi-protection would have sufficed? I've seen stewards forget to update the page all the time, and allowing autoconfirmed users, or even Meta sysops, to edit the page would be helpful. --Rschen7754 19:35, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

WMF labs is ready for you[edit]

Just a quick note to say that as far as I can tell WMF labs is now ready for you! All replication is working and working so so so so much fater than toolserver :). The latest figure I saw was 4.271s instead of 31mins OR 1.27s instead of 4433s :) ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 10:19, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Request to get unblocked[edit]

Dear Quentinv57, what is it exactly that I done wrong on Wikipedia that you had to block me? I seriously do not mean to spam or be a sock puppet, I just try and improve articles and such, but you guys out there see it as vandalism and y'all must be too protective of the site or somethin'. But anyway, I ask to be unblocked and this time, I shall do my best not to let the blocking happen again. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.3.67.81 (talk)

Hi. It's not the first time you're blocked, at least 6 other stewards blocked you before that. I also see on the block log that you promised not to have a disruptive behaviour again, and that it even continued after this. By the way, why are you ignoring every message on your user talk pages, and what is that? -- Quentinv57 (talk) 08:23, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Well the vandal started it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.3.67.81 (talk)
But can I still get unblocked, please? I swear to God, I really will not vandalize no more. Okay? So can you please unblock me???? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.3.67.81 (talk)
Hi. We've already gave you a second chance when you claimed that you won't vandalize anymore. How can I be sure that you're honest this time? -- Quentinv57 (talk) 13:28, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Because I will add more articles on the side of certain actor articles to help out and do my best to not to vandalize. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.3.67.81 (talk)
So now, can I get unblocked, please? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.3.67.81 (talk)
No. As I told you, you already got a second chance and wasted it. You can still ask on SRG if you want the opinion of another steward, but in my opinion you should better wait until the block expires. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 16:38, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Policy of diq-Wikipedia?[edit]

Dear Quentinv57! I had already answered your question as above. (Quote: Dear Quentinv57! It was not me, but Xosere with this alleged policy reason as follows. According to the policy of this Wikipedia, we only write in Zazaki. For communications in English (or any other questions other than in Zazaki), please write on our Embassy page. I just pointed out as his friend asked me for a reason. It is his work and there's no voting about it. My real warning to the blocked person (Neribij) was "Please, stop Kurdish ethnocentric deformation!". A day earlier, the user Takabeg was blocked by Xosere, because Takabeg accused justifiably him and his Kurdish oriented friend Neribij pushing of Kurdish ethnocentric POVs. This message was also deleted by Xosere and he opened himself an embassy side with the above mentioned reason. Greetings! -- Mirzali (mesac)) --Mirzali (talk) 12:14, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Dear Mirzali, do you have any solution to this problem ? Nobody should control the content of the wiki, so please tell me if anybody uses his sysop rights to push some content into an encyclopedic page. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 15:33, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Dear Quentinv57! You have not researched well in this case. Gomada is an extremist Kurdish nationalist. He is also not a Zaza. He made an artificial group against me and provoked me each time to remove me from diq.wikipedia. The vote also went unexpectedly awkward to me. I'm one of the first founders of that project. What Gomada concrete has been done there? Nothing, because he does'nt speak Zazaki. I don't have the time as Gomada, to stir up unrest there and here. His arguments against me have been ripped from the concept and worn together. Please check the situation once again thoroughly. It is a fatal decision. It's not about my personality, but it's more about the Zazaki language. They call our people as KIRD and our language now as KIRDKÎ, which actually mean Kurd and Kurdish. The Kurds now have the upper hand there. They change everything by the Kurdish grammar rules and use Kurdish words. I had only done my duty if I every time warned and blocked them in consequence, for only a short time. I want my rights back immediately. Best regards! -- Mirzali (talk) 11:58, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
First of all, i recommend Mirzali to read No personal attacks, Assume good faith and Civility. Its quite ridiculous that your only claim is nationalism. Do you have nationalismmeter-machine that you can say, this is nationalist, that is extreme etc? When will you accept your mistakes? Why do you insult users? Tell us, instead of blaming, tell us your mistakes. You cant hide yourself behind such blames. Do we have to waste our time with your meaningless blames and your insults? Wikipedia is open to each person, it doesnt mean that you will be admin forever. You abuse your adminship and users decided to desysop you. This is not your personal blog, its an encyclopedia. Dont forget it please. According your theory, you and your turkish speaking friend are the only users who deserve to be in Zazaki wikipedia. Sorry, but there are users who want to develop this wikipedia and if you want too, just join them and work coordinated with them. But we dont want to be insulted and blocked anymore. You are not better than any other user, each person has same right. After that, if any user insults or block you than come to Quentinv57 and tell the abuse. Otherwise, dont blame users anymore.--Gomada (talk) 19:02, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Dear Quentinv57! Please check the situation once again thoroughly. It is a fatal decision. It's not about my personality, but it's more about the Zazaki language.

Dear Mirzali, if you want your admin rights back please link to a vote or discussion showing the support of your local community. With 20% of support you simply cannot be an admin. The fact that you are here from the beginning does not allow you to be disrespectful with other users or to abuse your sysop tools. Finally, I will repeat myself for the last time : if other sysops are abusing their tools to push some content into articles, please tell me and I will investigate the situation. Being an admin has nothing to do with editorial content. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 12:46, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
Dear Quentinv57! It was not a fair vote. They (Gomada, Xoser & Co.) have planned everything and tricked me. Anyway, I am concerned with our language primarily and not to any power. But on the other hand, they represent only political views (namely Kurdish nationalism) and want to impose this attitude. If it is a project for Zazaki language, even Zazaki should be written there. We do not want Kurdish words and names. As a result, even the grammar suffers, for example words with male and female endings. Again, they will always have polemical responses. Once more, they call our people as KIRD (changed the word Zaza to Kird) and our language now as KIRDKÎ, which actually mean Kurd and Kurdish. --Mirzali (talk) 17:14, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
@Mirzali: In your opinion, there are two groups on diq.wikipedia. Again according to you, one side is now represented by Sysop Asmen and the other side represented by me Xoser at the administrative level. Thus, your argument that one side will dictate the other side is therefore has no merits. Because there is now a perfect equality at the administrative level, from your perspective. If you think that I am adding any one-sided content into articles, you can always refer me to Meta-Wiki. --Xoser (talk) 14:10, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
 : Dear Quentinv57! I have to give Mirzali right on the most points. His sysop rights should be give back to him. Even I and many other writers of Zazaki Wikipedia didn't know about a voting about his sysop rights. We should vote again with contrubutions of all authors of Zazaki Wikipedia. Best regards. --asmên 21:18, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Dear Quentiv57, please read this! -- Mirzali (talk) 08:56, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Cher Quentin 57! Avec tout le respect, mais peu à peu je doute de votre objectivité. Je ne comprends pas votre position pro-kurde. Vous avez été induit en erreur par ce groupe. Ceux-ci ont également le choix abusé. Leurs arguments sont complètement hors du concept. Il ne s'agit pas de moi personnellement ici. Il s'agit de la langue Zazaki. Je vous demande encore une fois sur le point d'étudier intensivement la situation. Les Kurdes tentent de soutenir la langue Zazaki par des éléments kurde. Vous avez mes droits révoqués et vous pouvez le faire à nouveau. Je ne voudrais pas aller à la guerre. Je veux juste être ma langue maternelle pertinente. Dernièrement, j'avais fait beaucoup de calme combattu avec. Même avec Xoser je m'étais réconcilié. Mais, Gomada nous a ramenés dans le désordre. Cordialement! -- Mirzali (talk) 15:13, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Dear Mirzali, first let me advise you to continue the conversation in English, so it is more transparent to other stewards (especially because you don't agree with my actions). Then, I find it's not really kind or justified that you call me a pro-kurd... Which reason would I have to be pro turks or kurds ? Excuse me, but I just know nothing in your battleground, which clearly should not exist here. If a problem exists between the two groups, it's not a reason to bring it on the wiki... I know it's more easy to say than to do, but there are conflicts on almost every wikis, and I'm sure you're wise enough to find a compromise to deal with it locally.
I may be wrong in what I did, and I'm open to every suggestion. But you have to understand I can't give you back the sysop tools because it's not the will of the local community, and my duty is to implement local consensus. It's maybe not fair, but I personally think that the only way to handle this is to work WITH those people you're trying to fight against. Again, we're on cooperative projects, and such wars have no reason to exist. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 16:47, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Dear Quentin57, I apologize for my harsh words. But, I don't fight against anyone. I also try to act peacefully, but the Kurdish nationalist-oriented attitude of some users makes it impossible. They always assume a hostile attitude in our community and carry it completely twisted outward. Believe me, if you could Zazaki or Turkish, you would better understand it. How do you mean we should continue to perform in English. I always did my work as a sysop, no more and no less. As you say, you just doing your work. By the way, Xoser was absent for over two years and did'nt follow his duty as a sysop. So the situation is complicated, unfortunately. However, I have already filed an objection with the stewards, as you have advised me there. Best regards, -- Mirzali (talk) 17:55, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Dear Quentin, first of all i should say that im sorry for this disturbing. But i think it helps to see the situation better. As you see, Mirzali can even blame you. I dont want to discuss with Mirzali, coz he doesnt accept his mistakes and he blames other people, therefore its waste of time. (a clear example, he thinks each person is wrong) But he must stop to give wrong informations. What a pity, he says im Zaza, but he is againist his nation. No need to even discuss on his claim about Kird. Zazas call themselves differently in each region. Zazas call themselves Kird in the region where Xoser comes from. In region where Mizali comes from they say Kirmanc. You can read article of Zaza people. If Mizali and Asmen want to help their language. Nobody stops them. But their only wish is controlling Zazaki wikipedia to decide everything there. If Mirzali deserves to be admin, he can start a voting discussion, who stops him? But he is choosing the way to attack people, coz he knows that he will not be supported. Btw i would like to ask Asmen, who are those many users? He is admin but he doesnt know the active users in his wikipedia and he says i didnt know the vote. It was from 24.04.2013 until 19.05.2013. How long would you like to wait for a discussion? If you are not active for long time, its your problem. We cant wait months until Asmen says 'oppose' for his friend Mirzali. (Thats a proof, Mirzali and Asmen talking on Facebook and they possibily committed crime of offline canvassing and Meatpuppetry) That would not be a fair voting.I want to tell Mirzali and Asmen once again; learn rules of Wikimedia projects please. This is a local issue. Therefore its not related to Quentin57. He respected to decision of users of diq.Wikipedia as he would do same for all other communities. That is what stewards do. You (Mirzali) cant come to disturb people for your blames. There is a community in Zazaki wikipedia. Before you attack people, go to your community and apologize there coz you insulted several users as an admin. After that, if they want to see you as an admin, you can ask for the support (vote). Otherwise, stop this game. You (Mizali) have written on your profile that you are 45 years old and there are not children here. Please, stop to waste peoples time wıith your non-sense claims and read trolling.(PS:Mirzali is oriented by Takabeg here and Takabeg said (in turkish) that Quentin is not neutral.)--Gomada (talk) 18:34, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Dear Quentin57! Why this rude person must intervene everywhere? Where does he get the right for it? What does my age have to do with the whole thing? If you remember, it's because you had already reminded him once in this issue. He should be ashamed for all his slanders and should cease to play the lawyer for Xoser. Xoser can talk for himself. Or? He should not even mention my name. He's not my contact person. As you have probably already noticed, who talks too much is not necessarily the wisest. So he only proves his unfair character. It is probably easy to hide behind a nickname, but with his contradictions and polemics he will not get anywhere in life. I'm gradually sorry for it to lower myself to his level. I hope you understand me. Best regards! -- Mirzali (talk) 16:15, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
First of all, I'd like to remember that canvassing and meatpuppetry are no crimes. You should not see evil everywhere, Mirzali still has the right to do what he wants in his real life, and no rules forbid to have Wikimedian friends... I just wanted to point this out, but I'm not answering this thread anymore. You are making a battleground out of my user talk page, and I'm not wanting to participate to this. I'll be happy to help you again in some blocked situation, but here there's clearly something to do on your side. I'm just not here to be part of one of your "groups" or to defend one of them. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:07, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Les contributeurs kurdes sont interdits sur wiki-türk![edit]

Chère ami, bonjour à toi! Comment faire pour pouvoir contribuer sur wiki-turque? A chaque on est bloqué, il nous ai impossible pour nous les kurdes de faire la moindre contribution! aussitôt les contributeurs turques effacent nos contributions et nous bloquent! Si tu veux savoir il n'y a aucun mais alors aucun contributeur kurde qui puisse participer sur wikipedia-turc! Que faire est-ce normal??? --Alsace38 (talk) 11:06, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I will answer in English because it will be easier for everybody to understand. If you don't understand, I can translate in French, there's no problem.
To answer your question, no, it's not normal. You can't be blocked for your political opinions or for your origins. But it's not the reason of the block, which says that you have been trolling and wasting the patience of the community. Are you sure that you did nothing wrong, and that this block is only based on the fact that you are kurd ? Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:31, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
Don't be silly my friend. You know it's strictely forbidden for us just to have any contribution in wiki-türk. Every time turks are deleting our posts. What we can do else? We ask them for which reason they block us, every time they find a new reason! For exemple "Neribig" contributor just wanted to add some articles, but every time his adds were cleaned up, and when he did ask for why? He was banned for 6 month... Again more my belove, there is not any kurdish contributor in wiki-turk they are all banned for nothing and everything! --Alsace38 (talk) 19:29, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Please read the section above, where Mskyrider explains the reason of your block. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 09:29, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
I told you that there is/was no reason, everytime they use different methods and reasons just to keep us out! Even more, that nobody gave any answer: why is there no kurdish contributors in wiki-türk?! --Alsace38 (talk) 10:34, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Another exemple of what I said, a turkish contributor had clean up my edit of wiki-english, I did give a real source, but Takabeg did give a turkish political sources: it's always the same play![2] --Alsace38 (talk) 14:04, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

About the block of Alsace38[edit]

Dear Mskyrider, I've been contacted by user Alsace38 because he wants to know the reason of your block. Could you please post a note on my meta-wiki user talk page ? Thanks by advance. -- Quentinv57 19:35, 30 Mayıs 2013 (UTC)

Dear Quentinv57, I had explained the reason of my block in our Village Pump in this link. And I informed him in his talk page with this note. Other than that he send me an e-mail, but due to his invective language I preferred not to answer. As all of these are in Turkish, I explain the reasons of my block once more in English: Harassment, uncivility, POV-pushing, disturbing the community and trolling. It has not been based on their nationalities or politicial views purely. It is only based on their behaviours inside the community and their treatment of the Turkish wiki as a battlefield to push their political beliefs (pro and con) by playing with system and using the wiki as a forum. I reminded them the Turkish Wikipedia was part of a global project with the foremost aim of spreading free knowledge and that nobody has the right to be there solely identifying them with their political views (pro & con) to discuss the matters which have not been resolved inside and between communities for centuries. --Mskyrider (talk) 05:36, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Well what can I say more? I desagree completly! 'Cause their main reason is that we are kurdish by roots, that's all. What did you mean into saying "trolling"? Because when there was a debate, a long debate on kurdish issue on wiki-turk; I asked to every body a lot of time to stop discussing and to wait for decisions of superiors! But nethertheless, what i wanted to explain is that wiki-türk is forbidden for us, each time we contribute , of courses with full sources, we are evenless outed, and stoped! What shall we do? --Alsace38 (talk) 10:27, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Is it possible to have some links showing harassment, trolling or any other disruptive behaviour ? Thanks. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:37, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Oui chéri! It's for us a perpetual war that we are leading in wiki-türk! We are everytime keep out, and when we ask for why: we are trolls for them: so shut up and go away for kurds?!
  • Neribij did contribute with well noted sources, but everytime he was keep out [3] [4][5], là aussi ou plusieurs contributeurs turques qui empeche un kurde de contribuer [6]
  • I did give a strong source, it was the book of an american linguist on zaza language! It was already clean up: reason "not viable source". [7]
  • An anonyme contributor did add some realist an true information on kurdish, but he was keep out "vandalism and no source". Where is vandalism?? And if you want source we don't clean up bu we say "source wanted"! [8]
  • another exemple: [9]
  • here we have a kurdish contributor who did gave well sources but he was keep out [10]
  • Meanwhile, before to stop my report, i just wanted to know why i have been stoped? There is a rule [11], before we "porte-plainte" and we expose some bad behaviour. but here for me, there wasn't anything, no "sikayet", nothing. And i want to know which of my remarks or senteces did hurt turkish communauty?! There is no kurdish contributor on wiki-türk that's all! --Alsace38 (talk) 11:29, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Deplus tu ve rras que le contributeur turc qui ag ite un peu par tout le mon de du web tu rk est Takabeg!

Automatofix[edit]

Hi,

I cannot unify the "Automatofix" account I have on frwiki. The thing is, I had to ask sysops to make it available again on fr.wiki, as you can see here (I had created the account a long time ago and never used it afterwards, so I could not remember the password), so maybe that is the problem: there already must be a Single User login "Automatofix" with the old password, and I actually possess the account "Automatofix" on fr.wiki only. --109.128.159.157 15:44, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Salut Quentin. Tu voudrais bien procéder à mon blocage définitif sur tous les projets Wikimedia ? Sois gentil, fais-le avant que je ne sois obligé d’inventer des insultes sur cette page. Merci. --ArséniureDeGallium (talk) 22:16, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Bonsoir GaAs. Je veux bien le faire, si c'est réellement ce que tu souhaites. Mais je tiens à te prévenir que si tu demandes à ce que ton compte soit globalement bloqué (global lock), il ne sera déverrouillé sous aucun prétexte. Réfléchis bien avant de faire de telles requêtes. Si tu en as vraiment fini avec Wikipédia et que tu ne veux plus en entendre parler, alors peu importe que tu sois bloqué ou non. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 18:17, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
C’est vrai qu’en fait ça ne servirait à rien (sauf qu’il ne s’agit pas de Wikipédia, mais du Wiktionnaire).
Ce que tu devrais faire, c’est convaincre les piliers du Wiktionnaire d’arrêter de faire semblant de ne pas reconnaitre mes faux-nez (moi je mettrais moins de deux jours à reconnaitre les leurs, et je ne suis pas meilleur), et de me bloquer à vue. C’est ça qu’il faut. --ArséniureDeGallium (talk) 18:43, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi,

Today at mr-wiki, we came across a spam/abuse edit by ip 2.13.220.4. edit difference on mr wiki & global contributions. While user has used devnagari script, when deconstructed seems to be french language sentence and when checked with google translator; it seems to be a personal threat to some user name salbot or saalbot. We have banned this ip and supposedly blocking it on fr wiki also can be recomonded.

This for your information and record

Hi. Thanks for the info. But are you sure that it's really this IP ? The only contribution shows a sentence that I can't read nor translate, so I'm not sure it really comes from a french user. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 20:11, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Shared the details on your email.

Thanks and regards

ku.wiktionary[edit]

Hi dear Quentinv57
I am an administrator on ku.wikt. The admin Ferhengvan has blocked me without any reason. here. An administrator is'nt allowed to block another admin without any reason.--Best regards--George Animal (talk) 12:22, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Dear George, I will investigate this issue and keep you informed. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 20:17, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Dear Quentin57
User George Animal was blocked because of harrasment on the Facebook group of ku.wikt. ( https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/168885689943580/ ) He threated to remove pages created unless I use the templates that he wishes that we use (without there being any decision by ku.wikt. users). He later on removed the discussion thread on the FB group and cancelled my membership there.
He has continued to change the pages on ku.wikt created by others, especially templates without discussion or decision by admins and other users. For template changes that he demands to be made without any decision by ku.wikt. users can be found on the history page of, for instance, http://ku.wiktionary.org/wiki/siv%C3%AE
Best regards --Ferhengvan (talk) 06:40, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for providing the reason. I'm not sure that blocking him yourself is the best way to handle that, especially because you're not neutral here. The best way to handle this situation would be to start a local discussion to remove George from the administrators list and/or to block him. Please also note that things happening out of Wikimedia projects are generally not solved by a block, what you should do here is directly contact the Foundation. If you need some help, feel free to ask. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 15:56, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Your archive bot[edit]

Hi Quentin. Something went wrong with your archive bot. He archived two requests twice (Minoo #1 and Torque) and instead didn't remove two other archived requests from the request page (Rollerman and Minoo #2, see here). And he also ignored other old requests from the request page (permalink). I now archived them manually and fixed it, but can you please look at it? Thank you very much in advance! With regards, Trijnsteltalk 17:16, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

+ he doesn't archive some old requests from Steward requests/Global as well (& maybe other pages too). Trijnsteltalk 17:21, 4 July 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Many thanks for your report. I know I have to review the code of my bot and tools, because several things evolved and the last maintenance goes back to several years ago... From what I see the bot got disturbed by the two sections with the same title. As you may have noticed, my real life is consuming a lot of time and resources right now, but I will make the necessary to progress on this as soon as possible. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 15:39, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

About IP Block[edit]

Hi Quentin57

I'm almost new in wikipedia. I have edited & written few articles by this time with fare intention. Don't know the reason why I have been blocked from editing. Can you please let me know so that I can be more careful in future. Best Regards, HBB19 (talk) 07:52, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi. From what I see, you are not blocked anywhere. There are two explanations for this: you may have been blocked and your block expired, or your IP address has been blocked. In the second situation, please send me a mail including your IP address so I can see which block affected you and remove it if inappropriate. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 15:42, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

User:Kolega2357/vector.js[edit]

Is this you could make a global via bot on only Wikipedia project? If there is somewhere that created this rewrite this as the META. --Kolega2357 (talk) 12:40, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I don't understand your message... Could you please try to rephrase? Thanks -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:58, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

IP unblock request[edit]

Hello,

I am requesting an unblock for IP address 198.23.227.212, which was previously blocked for cross-wiki spam. I have inherited this IP, as it was recently assigned to me by a hosting provider. As such, the block no longer serves its original intended purpose.

I hope this message finds you well. Thank you for your time.

Adrian (talk) 00:39, 8 July 2013 (UTC) // (Adrian on en.wiki)

Hi. We had lots of issues with global blocks set to prevent spambots. Sometimes contributors are even using the same static IP than spammers. Consequently, I removed the global block, so I'm sure it won't prevent you anymore to edit the wiki. Feel free to ask if you experience this problem again. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:40, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Editor @ ar.wiki[edit]

Hello. I would like to inform you that I have granted you editor flag at the Arabic Wikipedia, all your edits there will be automatically marked as patrolled. Best regards.--Avocato (talk) 04:43, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:09, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Steward_requests/Global/2013-07[edit]

Hi Quentin, could you look into what your bot does here? Several section were archived multiple times, e.g. Steward_requests/Global/2013-07#Global_lock_for_Gusskie_9 and anything below it. --MF-W 14:58, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi. There is obviously a problem when the bot is trying to archive two sections with the same title. Unfortunately I can't fix it right now as I won't be available this week-end, but I will do the necessary to fix it asap. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 08:41, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Ok; maybe it's better to stop the bot on SRG while the error exists? --MF-W 01:25, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Affected by rangeblock[edit]

Hello Quentin,

It appears I'm affected by an IP block or rangeblock you made. The block text is:

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason: Your IP address has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Quentinv57 (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Cross-wiki spam: spambot. Start of block: 07:27, 13 May 2013 Expiry of block: 07:27, 13 May 2014 You can contact Quentinv57 to discuss the block. You cannot use the "Email this user" feature unless a valid email address is specified in your account preferences and you have not been blocked from using it. Your current IP address is (redacted, if you need my exact IP let me know and I'll email it to you). Please include all above details in any queries you make.

Would you be able to make this into a softblock or set me ipblock-exempt, if the block is still necessary? To the best of my knowledge, I am not a spambot. :) Seraphimblade (talk) 19:49, 21 July 2013 (UTC) (By the way, it's only Commons that I'm getting bit by it on. My en.wikipedia account is not affected, perhaps because it's an admin?) Seraphimblade (talk) 19:51, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, administrators and those with local IP block exemption are both exempt from global blocks. Quentinv57 can't do much without your IP, which you can tell him in private (IRC or email).--Jasper Deng (talk) 21:47, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
Dear Seraphimblade, could you please send me a mail with the affected IP address ? Sorry for the delay. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 05:47, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Globally blocked user Fête returned as IP[edit]

A user you blocked globally, user Fête: [13], has returned as an unregistered user with multiple IPs: [14], [15], [16], [17]. Apart from the near identical edit pattern their very first edit [18] announced their identity.

I tried raising this on WP: [19] but nothing was done, due in part to my incomplete reporting [20] but also maybe as it's not an English WP issue, where their edits were annoying but did not rise to the level of requiring local sanctions.--JohnBlackburne (talk) 02:50, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

  • I just came here to report the same thing, Quentin. See en:Special:Contributions:198.105.116.61. Are global range-blocks even possible? I've locally blocked the IP on en.wiki but the issues are, once again, obviously larger. Salvidrim! 00:40, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Re:Talking with Danfosscc[edit]

Unfortunately, the protection is due to persistent vandalism. Any user can send an email as an alternative. Thanks. Petronas (talk) 09:58, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

IN REPLAY FOR BEING BLOCKED.[edit]

Hey Quentinv57, well first of all why I was/am blocked on all wikis ?. Second and important one, what is this nature of error/bug (or worm!), only asking for educational purpose. Well, it goes without saying, UNBLOCK ME.

" You do not have permission to create this user account, for the following reason:
Your IP address has been blocked on all wikis.
The block was made by Quentinv57 (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Cross-wiki spam: spambot.
Start of block: 07:44, 18 May 2013
Expiry of block: 07:44, 18 November 2013
You can contact Quentinv57 to discuss the block. You cannot use the "Email this user" feature unless a valid email address is specified in your account preferences and you have not been blocked from using it.

Your tools, the Toolserver and Tool Labs[edit]

Hi Quentinv57, what are your plans for your tools concerning next year when the Toolserver will be switched off (mw:Tool_Labs/Roadmap_en)? So far, most tools just run in the new infrastructure Tool Labs. Are you planning to migrate and will you make it on your own before June 30th 2014? If you need help, please ping me - I can find help. You can find the Tool Labs documentation here. Hope to see your tools in Tool Labs! Silke WMDE (talk) 08:39, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Especially your Local Steward Log is very useful and it would be a pity to see it destroyed with the toolserver. Please consider moving your gadgets to the new Tool Labs because they should be preserved. I bet that not many ordinary users understand that in a few months several old gadgets are going to be slaughtered just like that. --Pxos (talk) 23:51, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Also dropping in to say how much I appreciate your tools; I'd love to see them survive post-toolserver. Best regards, –xeno 22:35, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Wikidata on SUL Info[edit]

Hello, it seems to me that your “SUL Info” tool does not add Wikidata edits anymore (the problem started probably around 29. 9. 2013). Gumruch (talk) 14:46, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

Same symptoms for me. Wikidata edit count stopped in September. --Elekhh (talk) 06:44, 17 October 2013 (UTC)
