  • Have I commented on your talk page, I will monitor it for your reply. This so we keep the discussion together in one place. Don't reply here. If I have commented on your talk page and you reply here, I will in most cases move your reply to your talk page anyway.
  • Always sign your comments with four tilde (~~~~).
  • Put new comments under a ==Describing headline== at the bottom of the page.

January 2021[edit]

I see you removed my block. I can now edit. 2603:8000:EA43:F8F5:DCA:DB01:7CCB:D996 18:20, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

The block was not removed, it expired. But it can be reinstated again, if that is what you are asking about. -- Tegel (Talk) 21:51, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

Needed assistance at no.wikibooks[edit]

Hi Tegel! I'm doing some temporary administrative work at the norwegian wikibooks. I have asked for help over at Steward requests/Miscellaneous#Update global bot policy template. I need help to implement the global bot policy by updating the Template:Bot policy. I have allready added no.wikibooks to the list Bot policy/Implementation#Where it is policy. There was one response, but he doesn't seem to understand my request. Can you please help? Possibly you could tell me if somethings missing in my request, or if it is misplaced -- Abuluntu ( talk) 15:20, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi. I see that you got feedback on your request at Steward requests/Miscellaneous, so lets keep the discussion over there. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:34, 9 February 2021 (UTC)


What do you need to become admin on meta? I would like to fight LTA's and vandals (as I do in enwiki and request global locks here). Am I likely to have a successful RFA, and if not, what do I need? Steve M (talk) 02:45, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi. Check out Meta:Administrators and Meta:Requests for adminship and you will see what is expected of a Meta Admin. Compared with an admin on, for example Wikipedia, there is some additional rights that require some experience with cross-wiki issues. Report vandals at Steward requests/Global can anybody do, as you are already doing, but dealing with them and globally lock them is a job for the Stewards and not for Meta Admins. It's difficult to predict if you would have a successful RFA, but with edits on nine wikis and with only four of the wikis where the edit count is above 10 it might be tough to be elected. I thing that you would have a better chance if you where an admin on a content wiki such as Wikipedia first. -- Tegel (Talk) 18:06, 16 February 2021 (UTC)


Regarding the revert on en:Talk:Lizzo, is it possible ot globally lock the accounts? They are LTA socks of globally locked Pcgmsrich.Steve M (talk) 17:31, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:33, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

I want to vanish from the wiki and have a clean start on a new account.[edit]

After all the stress I am getting with this account I would like to have a fresh start... 1. I get indef blocked for unfair reasons 2. I get accused of being a flipping sockpuppet...

my new account is Dualcerb Alibino (talk) 16:45, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi. Vanish and an clean start is two different thing. So you are blocked on Wikipedia in English, but instead of solving the block you go ahead an create a new account to circumvent the block? How do you think that will work out? A clean start often mean that you stay away from all edit for 6-12 month, not create a new account two days after you got blocked. Then the local community "might" allow you to return with a new account. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:50, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Oh oki... Ill return in 3-8 months Alibino (talk) 16:53, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

But now you admit socking with at least one other account, so the question is what the local community on Wikipedia in English will thing about that when they find out. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:55, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
I got accused of being a sock... not socking... (also this used to be my public wifi acc but the 2 accounts switched :/ ) Alibino (talk) 16:57, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
And now you created a third account? Or how many accounts have you created? -- Tegel (Talk) 17:05, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
EpicOmegy was the first (asked for it to be blocked when this acc got blocked) (EpicOmegy was not in the sockpuppet report for some reason. This account was second, (used to be called OmegySock) I used public Wifi more then secure wifi so I stopped using EpicOmegy.

Dualcerb was third because I wanted a fresh start (I will stop using it today) Alibino (talk) 17:18, 26 February 2021 (UTC)


Okay, I'm new here on MetaWiki LironWiki2024 (talk) 14:19, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Why did you delete my user page?[edit]

Hello Tegel, I have just went on the Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy Month/Participants page and noticed that you have deleted my user page link. I can't understand the reason you have done this, and nor do I understand the reason given by yourself for doing so. It is simply just my user page on there, and it was created under the correct name. I feel this may be a mistake, however if it is not, can you tell me what I have to do to rectify this? Kind regards Luke780 (talk) 16:27, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi. Your user page is located at User:Luke780. The other page that you created became a normal page and not a user page, so that is why it was deleted. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:30, 6 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for replying and explaining so quickly, I have now fixed this. Have a great day Tegel! Luke780 (talk) 16:36, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

ZenNet VPN[edit]

@Tegel: According to Stalktoy, an unknown vandal has crossed over to Finnish wiki on the ZenNet VPN range shortly after it was blocked per WP:NOP at enwiki.

If you select "Thailand" in ZenNet VPN once you created and logged to a dummy trial account there, you'll end up on that range. Besides that there's an unconfirmed rumor going around that the Myanmar junta might start a big editing operation in attempt to sway opinion undeservedly into their favor, which I think would include some of those proxies that would help them hide better.

Can you go forth and block the range for about three to five years and with anon-block setting on, like we did back on enwiki?John haxor (talk) 19:41, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

LTA revdel[edit]

The intermediate revision by the IP did not contain any vandalism, but your accidental restoring did. I think you should change the revdel. ~~~~

Hi Tegel Thanks for reaching out. I posted a photo on Kim Kärnfalk for the wikipage for her. All rights cleared with the photographer Staffan Löwstedt./Best Anders Löwstedt —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Andlow (talk) 13:58, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

OK. Du angav att det var du som tagit bilden, och då stämmer ju inte detta. Det räcker inte med att du fått OK från fotografen. Bilderna måste vara släppta under en fri licens. En licens som gör att vem som helst får använda bilden till i stort sett vad som helst, även kommersiellt, utan att behöva fråga om lov eller betala ersättning till fotografen. Tillståndet är alltså inte begränsat till Wikipedia. Jag lägger in en mall på bildsidan så får du information om hur Staffan ska skicka in sitt formella godkännade till vårt ärendehanteringssystem så att vi har godkännandet dokumenterat. -- Tegel (Talk) 14:53, 6 May 2021 (UTC)


Why did you feed the troll again? Don't give a vandal any response. See also wp:DENY. Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker (CA) 16:43, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Last time I checked there was no clear consensus on either way, so users bring the standard of their home wiki to Meta. LTA's that has been vandalising cross-wiki for years should be locked anyway. -- Tegel (Talk) 12:32, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

Global Block vs Global Lock[edit]

Being globally blocked and being globally locked both mean that a user is blocked on all Wikimedia wikis. But what is the difference between globally blocked and globally locked? 15:29, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

A global block (applies to IPs) means you can't edit on any wiki. A global lock (applies to accounts) means you can't log in with the account at all. ~~~~
User:1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk)
15:40, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
Globally blocked describes an IP user, while globally locked describes a logged in user account. 16:00, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

Hjälp med artistsida[edit]

Hej hej,

Jag skulle behöva hjälp med att uppdatera en artistsida på Wikipedia. Eller två st, en på engelska och en på svenska.

Varje gång jag försöker göra det så försvinner det jag skrivit av någon anledning. Även om jag har källkritik. Har du tips på någon konsult eller liknande jag kan vända mig till för att hjälpa oss med detta?

Tack, Alice Sony Music —The preceding unsigned comment was added by AliceRyde (talk) 07:29, 21 June 2021 (UTC)

Det bästa är att du tar upp det till diskussion på artikelns diskussionssida. Då det ser ut som om det skulle kunna finnas en intressekonflikt om det är artister som du jobbar med professionellt så är det bäst att ta upp alla ändringar som du vill göra på diskussionssidan. Att hyra in någon för att editera artiklarna i erat ställe är inte att rekommendera av flera anledningar. -- Tegel (Talk) 12:07, 21 June 2021 (UTC)

LTA question[edit]

Are we likely to do anything about it if LTA's hit the wmflabs wikis, like Joaquinito, Voice Cast Vandal (which Chelston-temp-1 appears to be etc.) or can stewards not intervene in that? --Longstone owett (talk) 15:43, 8 August 2021 (UTC)

I'm talking more about, but for the user I'm referring to, in general, and, a cross-wiki vandal who's on Steward requests/global.

An apology for that troll-sounding name:[edit]

Regarding this note, I created that account called "Just some test account that needs to be locked anyway", with the intention of having that account locked upon self-request, and didn't realize immediately that asking for a self-requested lock was not appropriate, not to mention how terribly sorry I am for creating it, and will just stick to just 1 account, per the condition of not creating any new accounts, if that sounds fair to you. It DEFINITELY won't happen again. Again, I deeply apologize for that, and I wish to move on from it. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 01:50, 4 September 2021 (UTC)
