Can you creation an local on enwiki. I canot. HyperMario1234 (talk)

Hi. Can't you create a local account on enwiki? I can't create it for you. It is created automatically when you are logged in and move over to enwiki. It might be that there is a filter or a black list that prevent you from creating the account, but that takes time to investigate. Based on the number of wikis where your account is blocked you seem to have bigger problems to solve first. -- Tegel (Talk) 08:12, 5 April 2018 (UTC)


Hello Tegel, you are a good man but make global unblock for IP Please. Thanks, Silver Ballmer 19:21, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

Deleted mediawiki:Meza/Using vi

Hi. You deleted mediawiki:Meza/Using vi, saying it was "Out of project scope". Could you resurrect the page and rename it to "minimal vi required to work with Meza"? I need a page that makes it easy for people who are not comfortable with vi, but want to use Meza, to have a bare minimum reference. Thanks!

Sorry to revert it, I thought is vandalism. SA 13 Bro (talk) 19:31, 27 April 2018 (UTC)
It is, and the user gives us reason to act. -- Tegel (Talk) 19:32, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi. I just noticed some edits due to problem with IRC. Thanks for fixing the rest. I locked both his accounts due to the global mess the user is creating. -- Tegel (Talk) 10:12, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. Is it possible to semiprotect this user pages and talk pages against LTA-Vandalism:

Oleg3280 (talk) 15:26, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Oleg3280. I writed this request in RFH. Well-Informed Optimist's talk is already protected. But OneLittleMouse's and Q-bit array's talks not got excessive vandalism, and it makes no sense to protect it. Marshmallych 15:35, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
Oleg3280, time to celebrate. Our talks are protected. Marshmallych 10:20, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Recent edit

I noticed you reverted my edits. Let me explain. A WMF ban does not enhance a local ban, it replaces it completely. If it only augmented it, then the community could, if they wanted, revoke the ban and let the individual edit. In this case however, the WMF have taken that ability away from the communities. Additionally, many of the WMF bans did not start out as community bans and therefore they are not enhancing anything, they are the ban. Cheers! Artickle (talk) 17:44, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Bye. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:45, 30 April 2018 (UTC)


Tjenare Tegel. Varför har Yger blockerat mig? Jag är väldigt förvirrad och en liten bit arg. 18:58, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Är du snäll och suddar bort/cencar mitt IP även. 18:59, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Tegel? 19:11, 30 April 2018 (UTC)


Hi, Please can you tell me what happened with this page Me Quedo Solo (Cancion De El Menor Mc)? An IP started it with some gibberish, but when inserted deletion tag, I saw no text that was there. And later you deleted it, now it recorded I created it with that incomprehensible content. I am curios. Thanks. –Ammarpad (talk) 15:45, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi. I deleted the page when you where editing it. When you saved your edit the page was already deleted, so you re-created the page with just the delete-template on it. That happens sometime when there is multiple actions at the same time. -- Tegel (Talk) 15:50, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
Okkkk, thank you. It is weird. –Ammarpad (talk) 16:00, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
It's a variant of an edit conflict and nothing to worry about. Thanks for noticing the page that needed to be deleted. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:06, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

Vandal on Russian Wikinews

Hello! You blocked [2], could you do the same with his next incarnation [3]? Russian translator (talk) 18:31, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. -- Tegel (Talk) 18:34, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
Tegel, this is Liza Veniza LTA, the popular on this time Russian LTA vandal. Veeery many accounts. Marshmallych 20:10, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
And, Tegel, hide account "Красный хуесос убьёт Тегела ножом блять", please. Because this name translating from Russian to "Red cocksucker will kill Tegel with a knife fucking". And as you can see, this name is offensive. Marshmallych 04:48, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Unfortunately, revert is no longer available (user page)

move log for User:Kuzetsa - revert unavailable --Kuzetsa (talk) 09:28, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

You can't just move your user page to a new name. If you want to rename your account you have to place a request at Steward requests/Username changes. -- Tegel (Talk) 09:30, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
The previous content at User:K̶uzetsa / User:K̶uzetsa is blanked. As I recall, the meta.WM edits were originally for a recordkeeping requirement (freenode-side administration by persons connected to wikimedia org). I'm not involved in wikimedia / wikipedia at this point, so navigating the expectations for how userpages are handled is moot if the retirement / right to vanish route is less hassle. --Kuzetsa (talk) 09:45, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

IP Range Block


I was trying to edit through my mobile provider, and I received a message:

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: 23:36, 11 May 2018 Expiration of block: 23:36, 11 June 2018

I would assume that the range was a bit too big. Juxlos (talk) 10:44, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Without informing us what the IP-range is it's difficult to investigate. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:33, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Ip Range block

Hello my IP address has been blocked and I'm unable to edit any article in Wikipedia the reason for the block was Cross-wiki abuse, and the range for my IP is can you please help me out with this. thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Donator25 (talk)

The IP-range is blocked because of a vandal that is returning over and over again. Then the only option we have to protect the projects is to place a block. Since you have been editing both here and on Wikipedia in English after the block was placed you don't seem to be affected by the block any more. -- Tegel (Talk) 10:17, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Unblock account!!

Hi, why have you blocked my account and why are you blocking peoples accounts ? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Correctenglish22 (talk)

I have not blocked your account. It's probably that you are using an IP-address that I have blocked. To solve that you need to inform us what IP-address you are using. I'm blocking peoples accounts or their IP-address when they have done something bad. -- Tegel (Talk) 10:09, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

fjuck off

I bet you will lock all my sockpuppets like the fggot aspie you are. User:Cyp.

Thanks for letting me know. And don't try to frame someone else. It rarely works. -- Tegel (Talk) 14:34, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Another range-block situation

One of our best editors has reported to me by email that he is within a range-block that you appear to have instituted. His IP address is in the 148.252.129.xx range. Please resolve, thanks. BD2412 T 16:29, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi. That range has also been used by a cross-wiki vandal that has been active for a month now. I have change the block to a soft-block. If we need to reinstate the hard-block I recommend you to inform the user about Steward requests/Global permissions#Requests for global IP block exemption that will solve the problem. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:18, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Cheers! BD2412 T 17:27, 20 May 2018 (UTC)


Hello. Could you block this vandal's actions? Thank you very much in advance. --Editor D.S (talk)Meta-Wiki Patroller.png 15:58, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Unlock name

Hello. I would like to ask you to help me unlock the name of the artist from the blacklist. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dmitrii JM (talk)

What name and with what reason? -- Tegel (Talk) 15:08, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Name Alexander, I wanted to write an article. Moreover, this author does not create anything forbidden, only cosmic world in his work, or saints are depicted. I would be very grateful to you for your help.

Dmitrii JM (Talk)

What is his complete name? I guess that his name is something more than just "Alexander". -- Tegel (Talk) 16:12, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Alexander Tatarnikov full name and surname. He also has a pseudonym.

Something wrong with Terms of use/bg

Hi, Tegel! Thanks for reverting those vandalisms on Terms of use/bg. I'm afraid that something wrong happened here though. Not sure where that difference comes from—if I try to edit the translations, they seem correct. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem possible to simply revert the page to FuzzyBot's version (either I don't have the necessary rights, or it's impossible at all for translated pages). I'll appreciate if you could possibly help.
— Luchesar • T/C 21:32, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

That looks strange. That particular section is reverted in the translation so why doesn't it show up? Translation pages is a little bit odd, so I think that we need someone that is better on that type of pages than me to have a look at it. -- Tegel (Talk) 22:08, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

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

Hello Tegel, I run a bot [4] in the french wiki that handle the "Did you know" section on the main page and other stuff. It stopped working on the 22th of june with this message:

Code: globalblocking-ipblocked-range
Text: Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Tegel

Could you please unblock this ? Did you need the IP adress of my server which I could send to you by email ?

This is urgent.

Thanks in advance--Ghoster (talk) 22:58, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Tegel, I just granted an IPBE on frwp to GhosterBot. Best regards, Linedwell [talk] 09:10, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
I see that the bot is editing again. So everything is OK then, I assume? -- Tegel (Talk) 09:31, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, it's ok now.--Ghoster (talk) 16:47, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

About the blocks for Topmaniac

After Steward requests/Global/2018-06#Global block for IP ranges of Topmaniac done by Green Giant, I have thought that the projects would be protected from the vandal + troll using Topmaniac = Wild Draw Four = Acquiescence2 = Skiyomi = Sierpnia (and = Eltafez according to English checkusers) (and certainly also Rilancia and Seiyena, cf. this request by PlyrStar93).
So, I have been surprised to see that could make their usual vandalism yesterday, on Meta-Wiki. I thank you for the reverts and the local block of
I have just re-read the page Global blocks: I was not really conscious that "The GlobalBlocking extension can block an IP address or range [...] from editing all Wikimedia projects except Meta" and that, with global blocks, "account creation from the blocked address(es) is prevented". But I still have one question about the blocks for Topmaniac:

  • The local block of is active until 7 November 2018 (account creation disabled, cannot edit own talk page).
  • The local block of is active until 25 August 2018 (anonymous users only, account creation disabled, email disabled, cannot edit own talk page).
  • The local block of is active until 25 December 2018 (anonymous users only, account creation disabled, email disabled, cannot edit own talk page).
  • The global block of is active until 17 September 2018 (anonymous only).
  • The global block of is active until 17 September 2018 (anonymous only).
  • The global block of is active until 17 September 2018 (anonymous only).
  • So, it is absolutely sure that Topmaniac can not vandalize+troll Meta-Wiki until 25 August 2018, and can not vandalize+troll the other projects until 17 September 2018, except with potential sleeper accounts or with new IP ranges. Am I right?

Do you know how to stop cruizir from cruizin 2600:387:3:805:0:0:0:55 17:36, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

To have his ISP to terminate his internet connection? Thanks for returning over and over again. More data to put in the report. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:39, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
First off, how do you know I am a he (although I am one)? Second, what have I done that any ISP will care about. For me to be booted I'll have had to break a law or cause a loss to the ISP, and socking doesn't constitute as either. 00:40, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
I don't know if you are a he or a she. It doesn't matter in this case. Have you read your operators "Terms of Service" and "Acceptable Use Policy"? When our block of your IP-address starting to affect your ISP's other paying customers they normally start thinking with their wallet and is kicking out the troublemaker to keep their other customers happy. -- Tegel (Talk) 06:55, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
@Tegel: The problem with that logic is statistically speaking very few people edit (and that pool is shrinking every year), an even smaller percentage of that care enough to complain to the ISP if they can't edit and an even smaller number is going to complain enough to get the ISP's attention. So your talking 1/10th of 1/10th of 1/10th of a 1%. That's hardly worth the ISP's time. Of course if the WMF really cared about the collateral damage, they would make better tools, the people who use those tools would do better due diligence when they used them and the blocks and bans would be limited in duration rather than perpetually indef. So it's hard to have sympathy for the WMFs editing troubles when they themselves do almost nothing to help improve the problem. 15:04, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
It's up to the ISP to decide what they want to do. Meanwhile we will continue to block LTA's and banned user as your self and the user above. -- Tegel (Talk) 15:40, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

unblock request

As a digital nomad, my IP address frequently switches between co-working spaces/cafes and my LTE connection. My LTE connection: has been blocked for vandalism even though I am always logged into Wikipedia when viewing/editing. As such, I would like to request an unblock for my IP address range for my account and feel free to ask if you have any questions. Cheers. It is worth noting I do not have a user page on Wikimedia but I do have one on Wikipedia.

Clarevoyance (talk) 09:12, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi. I will see what can be done. There is a long term vandal that is also operating from the same mobile operator. What you could do is to contact your mobile operator and ask them to act on our abuse reports. Then the vandals mobile account can be terminated and we can lift the block. -- Tegel (Talk) 12:48, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
