Urossusa evasions. See this and and this. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 17:42, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Ok, done. Anyway, I'm following the SRG page, so no need to leave me a message on my talk page. Stryn (talk) 17:51, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
Ok. Thank you! Zoranzoki21 (talk) 17:55, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Oh, I have too question. Does global IP block exempt right work and on phabricator? Zoranzoki21 (talk) 18:04, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Request for help from Subbu (Parsing Team)[edit]

Hi there, ambassador! Subbu and his team would like to encourage a few big wikis to make a planned technical change slightly ahead of time, like the German and the Italian Wikipedia plus 170 other wikis already did last month. He'd appreciate if his message could be translated, before he posts it on the local village pump. (Once he does so, it would of course also be nice if you could keep an eye on the thread, should a conversation happen locally that requires his intervention and/or make sure that the message reaches the right people, but it's not a big deal if you can't!) He'll likely post there on Monday 15, and he'll just use the English version if a translation isn't available. Thanks in advance for your attention and help, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:24, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Done. Stryn (talk) 16:04, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

SE Candidates[edit]

Hi. I'm at Stewards/Elections 2018/Guidelines but I can't see the box to create the nomination and vote page, which is the page linked in the CN Banner. I wonder if it can be fixed? Also, Pathoschild will update the tool shortly so we'll have to update the links on the account elegibility thing. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 07:20, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the information, now everything should be fine. I'll make sure I add some documentation on our wiki what we need to remember to do. We have too many templates that need to be changed. Stryn (talk) 07:57, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

help sir[edit]

hei sir I have created the first page by mistake could you delete that please:)) Bloch khan (talk) 12:42, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Done. Stryn (talk) 12:44, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Help needed[edit]

Hi Stryn, hope you recall our meeting in Esino in 2016.

This has a reference to the deletion of one of earliest post on Meta (link) The stuff was deleted because it was considered to be "Off-topic". I request you to please provide the text, either thru Wiki-mail or as section on my talk page just for my record. Best. --Muzammil (talk) 07:10, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Done, but please don't put it back on Meta-Wiki as it's clearly out of the scope. Stryn (talk) 07:57, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much!Thank you very much! as I mentioned above, I wanted the text "just for my record" and some other purposes, not to re-post on Meta. --Muzammil (talk) 13:30, 19 January 2018 (UTC)


Can you quote "personal attack" at my user page?

If we happen to discuss this matter in court in which jurisdiction we shall talk? D1gggg (talk) 09:23, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

"User page should be used to talk about yourself. It should never be used for personal attacks" as other user wrote in the deletion summary. But if you can't find it yourself, you don't say that some users you don't like should be globally blocked and " with ugly people and let others contribute as normal person..." Stryn (talk) 09:26, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
Do you have citizenship of any country? Or everyone rejected you? :-(
Do you know how solve matters pre-court or that court will be absolutely neccery? D1gggg (talk) 09:33, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Article 19[edit]

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

Tout individu a droit à la liberté d'opinion et d'expression, ce qui implique le droit de ne pas être inquiété pour ses opinions et celui de chercher, de recevoir et de répandre, sans considérations de frontières, les informations et les idées par quelque moyen d'expression que ce soit.

@Stryn: do you support article 19 or that arbitrary text? D1gggg (talk) 10:21, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Help me sir[edit]

Please delete my request, I don't want to become an administrator, I working on Wikivoyage project. thank you very much:) Bloch khan (talk) 21:14, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Do you mean I should delete this? Stryn (talk) 21:15, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

yes sir, and very very sorry:) Bloch khan (talk) 21:16, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Thank you very much sir:) Bloch khan (talk) 21:22, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Comment about steward[edit]

Hi Stryn, I wanted to comment about Masti's action here but you cancelled my comment. You wrote that the confirmation vote start on 8 February. Yet, with this comment I only wanted to get a comment from Masti. Depending on his comment, I will decide for my vote. When am I supposed to ask questions? Pamputt (talk) 09:46, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi, the "comments" section is to either give support for their stewarship or to oppose it. And that will start on 8 February. If you have questions for stewards you should better ask on their talk page. Stryn (talk) 09:50, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Hi, ok I understand. Too late for now but I think there should be a public discussion in order the other voters are aware about their vote. As I wrote, depending on the answer that is given, it could change my vote. So as far as I understand your reply, the talk page is place for that, right? Pamputt (talk) 17:24, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
I actually meant the user talk page where you can ask the question. But the other choice is to vote neutral in the confirmations and then raise your question and change your opinion from neutral after possible answer. Stryn (talk) 17:31, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Filter 155[edit]

Is that to stop the super beep vandal? --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 20:49, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Yes. Stryn (talk) 20:49, 28 January 2018 (UTC)


Thanks for catching that! (Would I edit conflict you adding the others?) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 18:05, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

They were not in the original version (see), but feel free to add them, I'm going out :) Stryn (talk) 18:11, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

You missed a sock[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for the quick response to my request for Locking the latest ROXELANA22 socks. He's been at this Cross-wiki vandalism for over a decade now. You missed one account though, BaalRadar (talk • contribs • block • x-wiki • CA • lwcheckuser). Can you please lock that account as well? The reason I'm asking is because ROXELANA22 is known for "resurrecting" his blocked accounts on other Wikipedia sites following an indef block on one project (usually the English Wikipedia); recently, he has used this loophole to attack my Commons talk page. Thank you. LightandDark2000 (talk) 07:37, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi, oh, I don't know how I missed that account, now done :) Stryn (talk) 10:21, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! Face-smile.svg LightandDark2000 (talk) 21:56, 13 February 2018 (UTC)


Hi, do you by chance do CentralNotice requests? Ukrainian community will have an article contest soon, if you could have a look at a banner, it would be awesome: CentralNotice/Request/Scandinavian spring in UKWP Face-smile.svg --Ата (talk) 10:02, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ата, unfortunately my knowledge of CentralNotice stuff is bad, I asked on Meta:Requests_for_help_from_a_sysop_or_bureaucrat. Stryn (talk) 13:08, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! --Ата (talk) 15:16, 14 February 2018 (UTC)


Hi. Why did you revert this edit? The user checked the vote (eligible user) and Alch Bot automatically checks all of the votes. --Stïnger (会話) 20:49, 22 February 2018 (UTC).

Wow, it was an accident, probably I was on my phone and accidentally pressed the revert button. Sorry. Stryn (talk) 05:33, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
No worries, errors often happens :-) --Stïnger (会話) 12:20, 23 February 2018 (UTC).


You might consider a longer period of global ban for this IP (continued his 'work' on Simple). Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:37, 23 February 2018 (UTC) Oh, OK I see already done. Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:39, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Temporary sysop[edit]

Hi! How to become a temporary admin is totally inactive in the community, where there are no edits for a week? --OlegCinema (talk) 15:39, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Just start there a discussion about your adminship and wait for a week of possible comments. Stryn (talk) 16:08, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Ready for translation: Editing News #1—2018[edit]


Hi! This is an invitation to join translators working on the upcoming issue of the multilingual newsletter for the visual editor, which will be widely delivered when it's end of Friday in Central Europe. Thanks in advance for your help with this: getting to interact with fellows so skilled like the translators are is among my favorite things about my job :) Best, Elitre (WMF) 10:29, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

PS: Here are some instructions. Please go to the translation page: your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. Once you've selected it, you'll see the document in English side by side with any translation work already done in your language. You can add new translations or modify existing ones. Please let us know about difficulties you experience with the translation memory system.

I saw your edit here and wanted to let you know they are one of several hundred of JaySmith2018's LTA accounts. See also 1, 2, 3 (and quite a few more that aren't glocked yet.) Here's some of the recently glocked accounts for comparison: 1, 2, 3. Chrissymad (talk) 19:02, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

And strangely this IP which is glocked but still editing? Chrissymad (talk) 19:04, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, all blocked/locked. I didn't know about this LTA before. Stryn (talk) 19:07, 26 March 2018 (UTC)


Hi, Stryn

Please can you act on my request here? It has been left unactioned for over a week. Thanks. –Ammarpad (talk) 04:09, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Barnstar of Reversion2.png

Waking up to thousands of vandalized pages (so many of them directly relating to work that my team does or is connected to) wasn't fun. We are grateful for how people like you handle these situations, fast and efficiently, allowing everyone to move on with their work like nothing ever happened in the first place. :) Have a nice rest of your day. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 08:52, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi, my pleasure, honestly, I don't like anything more than fighting against vandals :D I was just too busy to go work so had no time to revert all of his edits, and even forgot to lock the account, so it then switched to ar.wikipedia where it did 16,175 edits in 30 minutes :O Stryn (talk) 08:56, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Is help being coordinated for them? I know there's a user script for such cases, but can't find a place where anything about what happened is being discussed. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 09:01, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Looks like it's all reverted there by few users. I don't know anything else than use the [rollback] button. Maybe there are scripts too, but I have not used them. علاء: did you use some script to revert the edits, or do you know who is that vandal? Stryn (talk) 09:10, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
You people don't share tools among you much? :) User:Hoo man/Scripts/Smart rollback. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 09:12, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Ah thanks! I've heard about that tool, but never used it, maybe I would need it too rarely and I always fear I revert good edits when I use the site on mobile :) Stryn (talk) 09:14, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Hello @Elitre (WMF) and Stryn: Yes, I'm using Smart rollback, today I revert around 6,000 vandal edits by this script, and before few days I revert also around 2,000 edits to the same vandal but by another account. The vandal appear under this accounts Jamesbebo (2,288 edits on arwiki, 682 in enwiki), Jamesbeboagain, Hero8000 and Hero9000 (16,175 edits on arwiki, 3,271 edits on metawiki)! --Alaa :)..! 13:39, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Stryn, Elitre (WMF), User:علاء, according to this, the vandal edited up to 537 edits in 1 minute for 30 minutes. Thats 9 a second. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 13:58, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
