Page deleted without reason

My page "History of Bombay under the Marathas" was deleted without reason! I was accumulating reliable information to generate valid content. --Coconut1002 (talk) 07:21, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

I guess that you refer to the page I deleted on the Mediawiki wiki. The Mediawiki wiki is for documenting the Mediawiki software. So any other material is off-topic for that wiki and was deleted. The material that you added there is more suitable for Wikipedia. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:51, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

User:Cindy WMFr

(In response to the message you left on my user page) Hi, sorry. My Bad. I thought that her User page had been created. Now, it's done. Can you restore the page or do I need to create a new one ? Thank you. Cyrille WMFr (talk) 14:50, 14 April 2017 (UTC)


Hello Tegel, can I ask some questions? --Alaa :)..! 14:54, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Proposed blocking

Hello Tegel, please block the user Ratna Sarita Lestara because abusing multiple accounts: LTA Ratna Al-Sarita an it's variants. Thank you. Ilzhabimantara (talk) 12:29, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi. I'm unfortunately busy with other issues at the moment. The quickest way to get an account globally locked is if you place a request on Steward requests/Global. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:52, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
@Tegel: Thank you for information. --Ilzhabimantara (talk) 10:54, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

Global blocking

Hi Tegel, can i see the Global blocking? Because it seems still busy seen. Thanks a lot. --Ilzhabimantara (talk) 14:31, 22 April 2017 (UTC)


Hi Tegel! I asked for temporary adminship on the Swahili Wiktionary and no reply yet. May you kindly review the application for me on the Steward Request/permissions. Regards and blessed Sunday --Trunzep (talk) 08:56, 23 April 2017 (UTC)


Hi Tegel. Why did you block my account. Please abolish the block. GOLDEN HN HA (talk) 13:39, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi. I have not blocked your account. Your account is not blocked on any wiki. It's probably that you are using an IP-address that I have previously blocked. For us to be able to solve the issue you need to provide us with your IP-address. If you don't want to add your IP-address here there is more information in the green box at the top of the page. -- Tegel (Talk) 13:48, 27 April 2017 (UTC)


Hi Tegel, I was wondering why certain users like or Hosseinblue ask if they are blocked when they aren't. Do I miss something here? Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 12:34, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi. My guess is that their current IP-address is blocked, and that they think that it's their account that is blocked. Sometimes it's a local block of the IP-address, or a short block that has expired at the time someone start looking into it. Without the message that they get when trying to edit there is normally not enough information to investigate it further. -- Tegel (Talk) 14:20, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
Okay, thanks Tegel! Lotje (talk) 14:21, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Turkey ban


just trying to keep order on the ban in Turkey Thread. A lot of "i think to be foxy" people just put stupid comments or just put them on first lines with fake date. Please, do something about it ;) Thanx, L U P O, Biel/Bienne, Switzerland.

Yesterday's vandalism on Response to 2017 ban in Turkey

Hi, I would notice that yesterday a user removed lots of signatures (including mine) on Response to 2017 ban in Turkey. I added back 'em all, following the order before deletion. I also added back two signatures that yesterday were above (ZiLù and Usho19) and were removed (but in this case I don't know who vandalized). Anyway, LUPO (that answered above) didn't removed 'em, but fixed my mistake (they weren't the first who signed). So, I tried to fix adding both users in chronological order. Of course, due to the persistent vandalisms, the order is a bit confused, and I tried to list them as accurately as possible. PS: due to the fact that this vandalism was the only user's contrib on all Wikimedia, I would report him to an admin. Regards. --Dэя-Бøяg 16:34, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

Sorry for disturb again, just a note. I've seen that the users added back by me (ZiLù and Usho19), were already on the list. I fixed removing the "second signature" and leaving both users in chronological order. Greets. --Dэя-Бøяg 16:51, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for deleting that vandalism. That IP user has been vandalizing on several wikis and will likely just change IPs if you blocked them. Would you mind taking a look at the message I left over on SN about the problem? Gestrid (talk) 15:22, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Global block without page deletions

I see you globally blocked a user on June 9th, citing "Cross-wiki abuse", without deleting their contributions to the Dhivehi Wiktionary (made just before the block). Could you please delete those pages? - dcljr (talk) 22:51, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Done. -- Tegel (Talk) 07:08, 12 June 2017 (UTC)


Hello Tegel, I wanted to use AutoWikiBrowser on ku.wikipedia and ku.wiktionary and I wanted to know if I had to make a request for this (Does this right given by Stewards or a Bureaucrat?). Thanks--Ghybu (talk) 16:09, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi. I don't know the procedures on these wikis, but from a general point of view if you risk flooding the "recent changes"-page you need to use a separate Bot-account that will receive the bot-flag. The bot-flag is issued by a Bureaucrat (or a Steward if there is no local Bureaucrat) normally after some test that shows that everything is working as expected.
If you edit in a slow pace with one to two edits per minute it could be OK to do the edit from your normal account, but it's up to the local community to decide how they want to have it. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:42, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. The problem is solved :)--Ghybu (talk) 16:31, 30 June 2017 (UTC)


range blocked as proxy, should be reblocked as ISP range.

Orange - it is affected ISP, nothing to do with proxy, please reblock with proper description.

Hi. I have not placed the block and I have not much time to investigate IP-ranges. My suggestion to you is that you bring it to the attention of the blocking admin. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:42, 4 July 2017 (UTC)


w:pl:Special:Contribs/SatanManson should be globally locked, since he evaded his block as w:pl:Special:Contribs/Satan_Mason. 18:06, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. I recommend you to edit from your normal IP-address since services that hide your normal IP-address (proxys) can be blocked without any particular reason as per the No open proxies-policy. -- Tegel (Talk) 18:18, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

About blocking.

Hi! I am an active wikipedian in bangla wikipedia (my account). Last night while editing, I got a block message written (in bengali) : "Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Tegel ( The reason given is Open proxy. Start of block: 07:03, 21 March 2017 Expiration of block: 07:03, 21 March 2018 You can contact Tegel to discuss the block.

Your current IP address is 2a03:2880:11:2ffb:face:b00c:0:8000, and the blocked range is 2A03:2880:11:2FFB:0:0:0:0/64. Please include all above details in any queries you make." I'll be glad if you tell me what to do about it. - Rezwan Khair (talk) 18:40, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi. The service provided by Facebook has been used for abuse on multiple wikis, so that is the reason why it's blocked. What I would recommend you to do is to use your normal internet connection instead of going through Facebook. -- Tegel (Talk) 18:43, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
Sorry, I cannot afford normal internet connection here. That's why I edited wiki through (Free Basics), may be it uses facebook. But it isn't abuse or illegal. Won't you consider that? - Rezwan Khair (talk) 19:02, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi. Most of Facebooks IP-addresses is blocked on a number of wikis for being used for abuse. I will check what can be done by the global block. How do you connect to the internet when posting the messages here? -- Tegel (Talk) 15:16, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
As usual. But it took time (8-10 min) to show the block. However, it is not shown now and I am editing as before. Thanks a lot, for your help and advice. - Rezwan Khair (talk) 18:56, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Needs help at some Wikipedia

Hello Tegel, I think you few times helped at Mongolian Wikiedpia. We have certain edit war and vandaliser's rampant action problem in last 2 days and we do not have any admin help. One serious vandaliser who constantly changes his IP is inserting multiple copyright infringed articles and alongside from different IPs vandalise other articles. Can you or your other collegaues deal this problem?? His most vandalism practicer IP is this ‎ the last two digits constantly changes. his more camouflaging kind of IP is this : usually last two digits changes every day. another camouflaging IP: (last digits changes often) I hope you have some ways to stop this sophisticated kind of vandalism. Orgio89 (talk) 06:10, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

The problem is ongoing here: Orgio89 (talk) 06:11, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
His vandalism act can be clearly seen here that Mongolia's only current active admin Zorigt tried to fight with his vandalism multiple times in this article history you can clearly see: Orgio89 (talk) 06:15, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Unblock User:Sher Aziz

Hi Tegel, I am user User:Sher Aziz i am globally blocked and can't login. I requested 3 times on UTRS but they are claiming you must global unblock then we will unblock on english wikipedia. I am worried about my account please do something ( 07:14, 8 July 2017 (UTC)).

You have placed a request on Steward requests/Global so that is enough. The fact that you are coming back with different IP-addresses over and over again don't help your case. -- Tegel (Talk) 07:18, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

@Tegel; you are see the history i request 3 times on meta but these admins and steward are not giving response to any blocked user. this is not justice please i want to use wikipedia again it is important to first unblock on meta please accept my request. -- 07:22, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

You have placed a request Steward requests/Global. Now you have to wait for the result. -- Tegel (Talk) 11:01, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

Block, press Steward requests/Global. -- 08:16, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi. For us to be able to help out you need to inform us about the IP-address that you are using. If you don't want to write it here you can sent it to the Steward e-mail address that is in the green box at the top of this page. Include the complete message that you get when trying to edit. -- Tegel (Talk) 06:16, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

i want to write my opinion

i am just sockpuppet of user:GALAXYA8. i am not crosswiki abuse and not LTA. in user talk:GALAXYA8, you was refused unlock request for my original account, user:GALAXYA8. it has an email address and i must use my original account and i don't want to use a sockpuppet. why my original account must need a nlock and lock? i want to use my original account. --Kim9933 (talk) 09:30, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

You circumvent your block by creating a sock. Normally not allowed. Your account is blocked on more than one wiki. Could be described as cross-wiki abuse. You do this over and over again. Could be described as LTA. Why should we believe that there will not be any problem in the future when you do this over and over again? -- Tegel (Talk) 09:35, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

and i can't use my original account forever? and it will be globally banned at all wikimedia projects? my original account is not crosswiki abuse and didn't do disruptive edit. and i must use my original account because it has an email address and username is violation. so i need to use my original account and request a changing username. if stewards unlock it, it will be unblocked at kowiki and can edit at kowiki again. other user said to me, "if you want to edit in kowiki, please do not create or use sockpuppets. you must use your original account. then, you can do everything at wikipedia." --Kim9933 (talk) 09:53, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

You have placed a request at Steward requests/Global. Wait for a reply there. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:56, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

About Mauritanian flag

The change was already done in English wikipedia when I edited Italian one and some others. I can't be 100% sure the flag has been set to law, but the referendum was approved and so the flag, at least in the Constitution, has to be changed.

Thanks for banning, man. People do spam worse things usually and I'm the one who gets banned.

~Italian anonymous user—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Just because the referendum is over it doesn't mean that the constitution has been change. Referendums are rarely directly executed. Wait until the constitution has been changed. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:47, 7 August 2017 (UTC) (fiwiktionary)

George Ho They are indeed. I was going to use the latter account in order to ask why I was blocked (they even blocked my discussion page so I could not ask). However, within 2 minutes of creating the latter account, it too was blocked so I never got to even use it to do anything.

Hi Serols, I see you restored some info on the Juliet Dunlop page.

Help design a new feature to stop harassing emails

Hi there,

The Anti-Harassment Tools team plans to start develop of a new feature to allow users to restrict emails from new accounts. This feature will allow an individual user to stop harassing emails from coming through the Special:EmailUser system from abusive sockpuppeting accounts.

We’re inviting you to join the discussion because you have experience dealing with abusive sockpuppeting accounts and you work across many wikis. We think that your insights will help us build a better feature.

You can leave comments on this discussion page or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.

It is important to hear from a broad range of people who are interested in the design of the tool, so we hope you join the discussion and let us know how it would work best for you.

He is not an admin here but has two pages that contains doxing, stalking and false allegations about Wikipedia editors. How can this be aloud? Guerrilla Skepticism member (talk) 17:34, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

If you have issues with users or content on this wiki you can bring it up at Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:36, 15 October 2017 (UTC)


Sorry I was quite new, sometime I was bored and cannot think of anything. I don’t know what I gonna do here. --Benjaminzygs9403 (talk) 09:49, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

Stop vandalising pages. If you continue, at least I know what I'm going to do. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:53, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
He was the sock of somebody else and has indefinitely blocked on English Wikipedia. SA 13 Bro (talk) 09:56, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
Based on the user page that he just created I would say he is related to Peekachoo. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:58, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

To add more evidence about me because I am not a real peekachoo. Because I edited it and that mean I am not a real peekachoo --Benzygs9404 (talk) 11:51, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

He was this user on English Wikipedia, if it is not wrong. SA 13 Bro (talk) 14:16, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Abuse in de-Wikibooks

Hi, thank you for your rapid reaction according For your information: I blocked this IP locally for 7 days.

Moreover, I'm thinking about a specific abuse filter. It's no problem to prevent the current text: "IchKommeZurückDuBenutzer:JuethoWirSindNochNichtFertig!!" But the IP easily can change the sentence – I'm not interested to work like in Haren och igelkotten. Can you propose how to act instead of react? -- Juetho (talk) 18:22, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, a filter might be a good idea. It need to be a little bit more advanced than just looking for that sentence, and that is a little bit outside my area. If it's a small range of IP-addresses that is not used by any other user a range block could also be a solution. -- Tegel (Talk) 18:07, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

How to fix a link to my site?

Hi, Tegel.

We are changing the structure of the site now the columns will look like - ( so an example. How can I get the owner of the site to undo the wiki? Is it possible with my ip make changes?

Thanks for the help.

Regards, Mikhail.

Hi. Yes, you can do the change yourself as long as the page is not protected from editing. Don't forget to write a good edit summary for your edits.
If it's many pages the best would be if you asked an active user on that wiki if they can help you do the changes with an automated script. That type of edits is done from a special account so you can't do that yourself. You can probably find a page to ask for help here. -- Tegel (Talk) 10:15, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Requesting for IP-block exempt regarding autoblock

Hi @Tegel: I'm JWilz12345 of enwiki (and also of tlwiki). Recently I cannot contribute to enwiki and tlwiki because of your autoblock of IP range (where my IP add belongs). At tlwiki, it was written as:

Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis.

The block was made by Tegel ( The reason given is Cross-wiki abuse.

Start of block: 20:12, 29 Oktubre 2017 Expiration of block: 20:12, 1 Nobyembre 2017 You can contact Tegel to discuss the block. You cannot use the "Mag-e-liham" 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, and the blocked range is Please include all above details in any queries you make.

May I request for an IP-exempt block? So that I can continue to contribute on tlwiki and enwiki. I know that numerous vandals are using IP recently to vandalise or use Wikipedia pages as their grounds for promotion of ideology, advertising produts, etc. Despite the fact that I contribute to tlwiki less often than before, and to enwiki more meager than before, I still want to contribute. This is the reason why I am requesting for a global IP autoblock-exempt to my account name (JWilz12345), if it is allowed. If not, I am requesting for 3 autoblock-exempt's, one for enwiki, one for tlwiki, and another for wikicommons, where I usually contribute by moving free imgs from enwiki (done using Commonshelper) and categorising them. I also contribute to zhwiki by adding city/town lists in the articles of Philippines provinces there, despite less frequently (although I assume that zhwiki is very strict, they might not accept any requests for IP-block exempt). Again, I'm kindly requesting an IP-autoblovk-exempt for my account JWilz12345 (global if it is allowable), without compromising the intent of blocking vandals. Thanks for your understanding.JWilz12345 (talk) 03:23, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi. I have changed the block to anonymous only so you can now login using your account and continue to edit. -- Tegel (Talk) 07:47, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Thank you

I support no edits from anyone to my user page.

I can reword anything after request or discussion. D1gggg (talk) 07:06, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
