I noticed these edits and added Estonian as a language option. It should work now. -- とある白い猫 chi? 05:02, 18 October 2011 (UTC)Reply

Presenting Community Engagement Insights survey report: Tuesday, October 10, 1600 UTC


Hi Taivo,
I am reaching out to you because you signed up to receive updates about the Global Wikimedia survey.[1]

We will be hosting a public event online to present the data, a few examples on how teams will be using it for annual planning, and what are next steps for this project. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 10, at 9:00 am PST (1600 UTC), and the presentation will be in English. You can watch the livestream here, and ask question via IRC on #wikimedia-office.

If you are unable attend, you can also find the report on meta, and watch the recording of the event at a later time.

We hope to have you join us online! -- María Cruz 23:28, 2 October 2017 (UTC)Reply

Long term abuse (cross wiki and Globally) / Mr,p balçi


Hello. Please close this user and all related accounts Globally. All of the following accounts, which are closed locally and globally, belong to him. In addition, some of them in different languages probably do not make good sense. In all wikis, in addition to sabotaging articles, he insults different users of different ethnicities. He is of Turkish ethnicity. He has created countless accounts in Azerbaijani and Turkish articles and has insulted users of Armenian, Kurdish, Persian and Arab ethnicity on various wikis. Many users left Wikipedia forever with insults and threats made by him.













and one more :


This is his latest account identified. Behavioral evidence and conflict in identical articles. This user also uses different IPs. I think there are many other unspecified accounts of him.

The inspection page below lists many of his accounts and IPs. He has insulted the Armenian user with IPs in several different wikis.


A number of sabotages:










in en.wiki :

In commons

I do not know, why did you ask me. You need global administrator or steward. I cannot block the users globally. I do not understand these languages and I am not sure, what to do. You can request global locks or discuss it with somebody, who understands Turkish and/or Persian language. Taivo (talk) 08:06, 21 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

A little clarification re: Commons


Hello, Taivo.

I'm NOT asking for an immediate Commons unblock. Just want you to know that I only thought it'd be OK to include a WT link if that link was commented out (you know, with <!--- and --->). My sincere apologies. If I had known you would block me for that, I wouldn't have put in the [[wikt:...]] part.
And FYI, I wasn't using my own personal computer at that moment, so I couldn't have kept a text file there. (For example, I'm allowed to edit pages from my work computer whenever I'm on a break.) What do you suggest I do in such situations?

I am telling you here because I am unable to make "Email this user" work on my mobile device, no matter the WMF project or whether I'm blocked. Maybe you can look into this matter? Shāntián Tàiláng (talk) 15:57, 20 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

And besides, maybe a monthlong block is a little too much? I mean, it was an inadvertent violation of your conditions that I thought would be exempt if I commented it out.
So it seems that Surjection's statement about me (namely, that I have "no intention to follow the spirit of your law") was too harsh, for I did intend to follow the spirit of your law. I just didn't know your law applied to commented-out text [since commented-out text isn't visible unless you view a page's source code]. (Perhaps you should clarify that to any future cross-wiki offenders.) Shāntián Tàiláng (talk) 18:30, 22 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Not done. The third condition ends: "You must pretend that Wiktionary does not exist and has never existed." Obviously this applies to commented-out text as well. Nothing unclear is in the condition and the violation is obvious. But as commented-out text isn't visible, I blocked you only for a month (I would block you for a year or indefinitely, if visible). Taivo (talk) 18:40, 22 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hmm, OK. I was just curious as to why the block wasn't a week long, which IMHO would be sufficient to make me stop disrupting Commons in that way. Shāntián Tàiláng (talk) 19:06, 22 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Oh, I forgot to ask, have you seen this request of mine? (I made sure to use Template:noping throughout it, of course.) Shāntián Tàiláng (talk) 02:29, 24 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Now I saw it. I have nothing to say about it. These questions are for English Wikipedia and Wiktionary. I do not contribute to Wiktionary at all and I have no advanced permissions in English Wikipedia. If you want me to answer to your questions, then most answers would be "I do not know."

I said to you in your user talkpage in Commons: "Please never send me another e-mail". You still sent me an e-mail. I deleted it without reading. Please never send me another e-mail. Taivo (talk) 21:22, 21 January 2024 (UTC)Reply
