I used to edit under the same name at Wikitravel. I am no longer able to edit my userpage there. However, before leaving , I had managed to get in an edit [6] that links myself to the page on Wikivoyage general. At Wikivoyage general, I have linked back to my current page on Wikivoyage:en.

Here is the crosslink: User:Epolk

Well, so much for that. I got blocked immediately after posting the link and removing it.

Verified. If that gets to be a problem, I guess we'll have to switch to email, or more esoteric methods, like looking at historical revisions with links to WP userpages or blogs and contacting people through those. --Peter Talk 13:11, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
May have been a coincidence. I was getting 403 errors right on Wikitravel right after I posted and removed the link but now it is fine. They may have been having some problems. Epolk 23:50, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Spreading the love around.

WMF Migration/New policies/Cross-identification of accounts is confusing. Should it say "First create an account at ..." and specify either or the language version, eg, I am still not sure what I should have done.

Yeah, it's just generally kind of confusing inherently. I hope to do away with this process after moving to the WMF, but I suppose we'll see. --Peter Talk 17:13, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

These diffs show that it was the same user making the links on the user pages:

    • Suggestion: After you've created the diff, go to this page and put the diff URL in the "URL to Archive" field and your e-mail address in the e-mail field. This will give you a permanent link to which can't be oversighted. --Stefan2 20:34, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
      • I can't do it anymore. When I try, I get this error message:

This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your edit was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Salem's Lot

      • I got the same error message when trying to link my Wikivoyage account on my user page and my user talk page at Wikitravel.

Ikan Kekek 00:36, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Maybe this - [20] is sufficient for you to verify:
I tried to archive all previous discussion but seem to have erroneously deleted it all. In any case, if you would like to contact me, 
you are most likely to find me at [21]. All my best to all of you, Ikan Kekek 06:52, 21 August 2012 (EDT)

N.B.: The error message Ikan received is from the Edit Filter. Filter 12 is called "Salem's Lot", after the Stephen King novel, and appears to prevent adding references to Wikivoyage in new edits (though it doesn't appear to prohibit editing a page that happens to have a link or reference already). LtPowers 20:48, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, Peter. What do I have to do to put the content of the Talk page for (WT-en) Ikan Kekek [22] into the Talk page for Ikan Kekek [23]?
Hmm, I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Do you want to redirect the old account pages to the new one? If so, move them and then leave a pointer (and the wtuser template) on the old userspace page, like this [24]. --Peter Talk 22:32, 28 October 2012 (UTC)
Exactly. I had forgotten how to do that. Thank you. I hope I did it in an acceptable manner. Ikan Kekek 06:15, 4 November 2012 (UTC)


I logged in as Rogerhc at WT and posted "I'm also Rogerhc at en.WV" (see diff). Abbreviate en.wikivoyage to en.WV because IB's censoring this matter.

Does this page (last edited in 2006) provide enough evidence that the accounts are the same?

Alternatively, as long as my logins at Wikivoyage, Wikipedia and Wiktionary are merged now -- is it sufficient if I mention [28] at my User page at Wikitravel? (which is much safer compared to mentioning Wikivoyage). --DenisYurkin (talk) 20:33, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
