Round 2 Re-submission of proposal[edit]

Hi there Ruslik,

I have decided to reapply for the Round 2 of the 2016 Project Grant applications.

I selected to create a new proposal, and it seemed to simply overlay the new information on the old application page, therefore leaving my updates and revisions on the Round 2 version attached to the "Past Proposals" link to the application.

Do you know how I would get this updated version bumped into the "Current Proposal" sections?


Why did you block me? Contact me-

Blocked IP[edit]


You have blocked an IP address range including mine from editing. This is not due to my edits, so must be from due to user on the same ISP. Is it Wikipedia policy to block the IP range for an entire ISP because one of its users broke the rules?

Blocked IP[edit]

Thanks in advance

Block IP[edit]


I have just logged into my account after moving to Israel and have discovered my entire IP range has been blocked. This seems somewhat excessive?

"Your current IP address is, and the blocked range is Please include all above details in any queries you make."


I am user en:User:Boiagiallo-edits: I made several edits in and, but unlogged IP, during April 2013 for to improve and to start several articles regarding Italian food and related articles. I used a computer in a public location en:User talk: obvious that computer, and related IP, was in charing use with other users, but an Italian admin globally locked my account [Boiagiallo], wich is used by me alone. I leave a post in Italian discussion of admin, but he ignored me. Admin was looking for other editors, who edit in articles regarding history and sports, but those users are not my friends and I don't know them! If you global unlock [Boiagiallo], I can continue to improve many articles in many languages: articles regarding Italian food and related articles! I made request here. Now I can not log in: my actual and dinamic IP is


Another sock of INeverCry. Creates an account and immediately starts deletion requests like other socks.


Everyone... Let me talk...

It all started in 2014/2015 (I think) when I created a Wikipedia account. I was exaggerating the sizes of UY Scuti at the time. I now know that UY Scuti is only 1,708 ± 192 solar radii.

I came back in June 2017. I wanted to help make useful contributions to the encyclopedia. Everything turned out well for the first 2-3 months. However, things changed. Some users started to argue against me, especially when it came to star sizes.

Then, when I tried to introduce more information, the other users didn't like it and started to want to get me blocked. They succeeded. Why would they pick on me? Yes, why me? Why are they always saying that everyone else is right (not in the case of wikipedia:WP:TRUTH, but in encyclopedic contribution terms) and I am wrong?

But things took a turn for the worse. My archnemesis, Sasha Primerov, started insulting me on . He got both of us blocked indefinitely as a result. My niece, friend, and archnemesis made their own Wikipedia accounts on my computer without my consent. My niece was making disruptive edits to wikipedia:List of largest stars, my friend was editing in bible verses even though it is vandalism, and my archnemesis was making personal attacks. All of our accounts got involved in a sockpuppet investigation and all of them were banned, and my account was globally locked. All of this is the truth.


Please, in 4 months, let me come back. Please unlock my account and inform an administrator to unblock me. Not now, but in 4 to 5 months, to complete the wikipedia:Wikipedia:Standard offer.

My only intention was to help build an encyclopedia. I really don't want to be globally locked. After all, Wikipedia is «the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.»

I don't hate the people who think that I am wrong and that I should be blocked. I actually like all of you, guys. Just please let me contribute to the encyclopedia.

Please, I promise to never let anyone make a Wikipedia account on my computer again. I also promise that I will avoid the behavior that got me blocked at all times and make useful contributions.

Please, give me a second chance. I am just a teenager living in wikipedia:Russia, and I want to make Wikipedia more reliable than it is today.

I am very sorry for the incidents and thank you very much, in advance.

How to change Namespaces to local language?[edit]

Hi, Dear @Ruslik0:, I have been admin of Sindhi Wikipedia and recently applied for permanent admin-ship as well, I wanted to change the namespaces on Sindhi Wikipedia from English spelled words to their alternative Sindhi words, i.e. Wikipedia to وڪيپيڊيا, as its already namespaces in their local languages such as on Urdu Wikipedia, hope you understand what I am going to ask, if not you may ask me further, Actually I want to change namespaces on Sindhi Wikipedia to Sindhi words, example I have given above. How to change them?. Either I have to translate them or what to do?, kindly help and guide in this regard. Expecting a positive and a dignified role from you.. thanking you...JogiAsad (talk) 08:40, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Alternative namespace names are specified in InitialiseSettings.php. Ruslik (talk) 19:00, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Request global unlock for DragonDance[edit]


I'm requesting an unlocking of my account DragonDance (talk • contribs • block • x-wiki • CA • lwcheckuser) for the purposes of appealing my block at the en-wikipedia. I'm locked for "cross-wiki abuse" which stems from me being blocked at Commons because I tried repeatedly to upload a file which I feel is in the public domain and having a disagreement with the admin who was removing it in which I admit to being uncivil, although I disagree with his judgement at the time that i was a "sock of a LTA," as I had used DragonDance on and off at en-wiki since 2007.

I then tried to create another account, Nordicthrash420 (talk • contribs • block • x-wiki • CA • lwcheckuser) to upload this file again, with no success. I then used both accounts to edit en-wiki which lead to me being blocked for socking and the global lock placed by you. I would like to appeal my block and hope to continue to contribute positively to motorsport articles on en-wiki. 22:25, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

You should stay away from the Wikimedia projects for 6 months without any sock or block evasion accounts, and then appealing your unlock request at SRG first. SA 13 Bro (talk) 22:57, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
To that point, I should disclose that I made the account Thrash92Dragon (talk • contribs • block • x-wiki • CA • lwcheckuser) after being locked and made for the sole purpose of contacting the blocking admin on en-wiki as I had initially thought my account was compromised. 23:05, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
OK, please stop creating the block evasion accounts. NinjaRobotPirate is one of our checkuser admin on English Wikipedia, he has the responsibility to block you for violation in sock, wait after the date on 29 July 2018 without any sock or block evasion, and then appealing your unlock request at SRG first. SA 13 Bro (talk) 23:24, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
There's a bit more to it than what DragonDance said. For one thing, there are several other confirmed sock puppets; see en:Category:Wikipedia sockpuppets of DragonDance. Two of DragonDance's socks (Nordicthrash420 and FiDorrahShukyShuky) harassed Avoided on enwiki ([2] and [3]). Given Avoided's global ban proposal, it's possible there's further trolling on other projects. If there isn't, I guess can take care of this disruption by itself.

IP requesting CU[edit]

Re: this; if this is policy, can you point me in its general direction please? Many thanks! Take care, Serial Number 54129 (talk) 14:01, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

This is called case law in common law jurisdictions or practice in civil law jurisdictions. Ruslik (talk) 18:51, 13 February 2018 (UTC)


My request about Myeuurn and Baka Líte is on meta because they're "cross-wiki" sockpuppets. I've asked for a check in single wikis but they say that I must call on stewards on meta, who have the possibility to check globally, i.e. through different wikis, to find cross-wiki socks. Did they told me a lie? Where should I report a cross-wiki case like this, may you tell me? Or must I give up and let the sockmaster free and unpunished? The deadline for checkuser to access users' data is 90 days, so we have very short time left to check since the user I've reported as the sockmaster's last certain log-in dates back to December: if you can't really do anything yourself to check the very likely connection between that account and the globally blocked sockpuppets on the bases of all I wrote in my request, then at least tell me what should I do to bring my request to justice (both in case he's guilty so he has to be globally blocked too, and in case he's unguilty so he won't have to be suspected again). Tafareste (talk) 10:33, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

"let the sockmaster free and unpunished" What are going to do? To punish him and send him to a prison? Using multiple accounts is not prohibited by any global policy and those accounts have not done anything that may have warranted a cross-wiki check. Ruslik (talk) 12:00, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
Ruslik, why didn't you just "answer" my questions? I asked you some information after you closed "that" request for "that" reason, could you please let me know what I need to know? By the way, unless I've misunderstood Wikipedian rules, when sockpuppets are blocked (if they're blocked it means that they were used against rules, otherwise they wouldn't have been blocked, in fact I read "Long-term abuse" as motivation) also the sockmaster who created and used them in that way should be blocked. I'm bringing you the "Long-term abuser" up on a plate, by telling you his main account's name and by showing off the differences between revision linking him to the open proxies and the other socks which are already blocked. I've done most of the work, to complete it it's needed just to check a connection of the IPs between the suspected sockmaster and the blocked sockpuppets. No prison, no punishment, just applying the rules. Or is there a secret reason to avoid checking this particular user? Tafareste (talk) 14:15, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
I do not see any evidence that these users were blocked anywhere. In addition, you understanding of of rules is wrong - presence of socks is generally not a reason to lock an account. There are plenty of cases where the sockmasters are known and not locked. If some accounts are misused on some projects just block them there. In this particular case I do not understand why I should conduct a cross-wiki check. Ruslik (talk) 16:11, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
Ruslik, if you tell me that you "do not see any evidence that these users were blocked anywhere", I really don't know to think whether you're making fun of me or need a pair of glasses, since both User:Myeuurn@global and User:Baka Líte@global are globally blocked (as the open proxy that they've been using). I've never said that the all socks must be blocked always, I said exaclty "when sockpuppets are blocked...also the sockmaster who created and used them in that way should be blocked". This isn't about legitimate and declared socks, this is about a "Long-term abuse" due to multiple accounts (and use of proxies) which were created to mislead and deceive, i.e. in order not to let admins detect the sockmaster who's been keeping hiding behind his sockpuppets (and proxies too), whose editing was mostly edit-warring for futile reasons such as accents and there was some disrupting too. Now please answer the following question before answering the questions I asked you before: how could such a behaviour, which led to global blocks of socks and proxies, be justified by you? I've indicated the "Long-term abuser" who's currently free to create other socks (in fact he did, even if it was immediately blocked locally) and you, despite knowing that, don't even want to at least make a check to verify whether what I'm saying is true or false? Tafareste (talk) 18:18, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
There is no such thing as global user block. Ruslik (talk) 20:42, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
Then I'm starting to think that we live in different universes... Myeuurn: "This account is globally locked. See global account details for more information." & Baka Líte: "This account is globally locked. See global account details for more information." (+ blocked globally "Cross-wiki abuse: Leaky webhost, Should you be affected by this block, please contact us"). The last thing I want to think is that you're willingly dodging my questions, that you're talking about anything else in order not to answer my questions, I want to believe that's impossible... Please, show me I'm right and answer my questions, the last one in my previous message in particular, just for this time, then you can restart talking about your meaning of "globally blocked", but answer my questions first, please. Tafareste (talk) 21:33, 28 February 2018 (UTC)


Thanks for blocking the sock puppet [4] he is using my name by modifying my user ID i.e. User:Rachitrali and the sock puppet modified this ID as User:Rachitrali0 thanks for this, i am using my personal ID i.e. Rachitrali, the fake ID i.e. User:Rachitrali0 is not related to me. thanks --RAChitrali 04:22, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Checkuser Pending Request[edit]

Hello there, the Greek Wikipedia community is still patiently waiting for the outcome of this checkuser request that was placed more than three weeks ago. The issue still persists and there have been some serious reports of vandalism, personal attacks, even legal threats from users in regards to the latest developments involving the above mentioned user. As you can see in the link, the main user hiding behind these sock puppets is believed to be 'Vrahomarinaner'. As you are probably already aware, Greek Wikipedia has been challenged in the past and this situation appears to be getting out of control again due to recent activity by the listed accounts. Could you please have a quick look and let us know when the result will be published? Thanks in advance. Glucken123 (talk) 15:20, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Hey, it'd be really useful if you could send me a quick update. Thanks. Glucken123 (talk) 12:07, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

en.Wikipedia vandal[edit]

You may have solid reasons to deem two vandals unrelated – for example, from the check-user data. But with stamping “not done” without waiting for third-party input you implicitly debased opinion of other stewards who might have more experience with this LTA, or different insights.
