A barnstar for you![edit]

For the exceedingly helpful essay The unblockables. Pitke (talk) 13:57, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Beeblebrox (talk) 19:53, 8 March 2015 (UTC)


I put that in quotations because it just appears that way due to them not understanding the English language, but this user keeps editing their talk page (after being blocked by another admin) with what appears to be just a bunch of nonsense. Might need to have their talk page privileges revoked. Regards. :) - Amaury (talk) 06:22, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Looks like another admin got there already. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:53, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
Yup. Was just coming to post that, haha! - Amaury (talk) 20:24, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Self-blocking request[edit]

SD0001 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log)

Hello, I'm SD0001. Due to various issues, it is necessary for me leave Wikipedia. I find it very difficult to keep away from Wikipedia and this can adversely affect my personal interests. It is therefore requested that you hardblock my account for a period of one year. I meet all your self-blocking requirements and agree to all the terms and conditions listed therin. In particular, I hope that you will abide by your last point there. If you find me using a sock or editing via an IP, then block that too. If you agree to this request, which I hope you will, I would be highly grateful. Thanks, SD0001 (talk) 19:56, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

If possible, it is also requested that you fully protect my user page (to prevent myself from editing it any more!). I think it is allowed for retired users. Thanks, SD0001 (talk) 07:28, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

You do appear to meet my criteria. Before doing this I like to ask the user to take 24 hours to carefully consider if they really want/need to do this, and to inform them of the wikibreak enforcer [1] which accomplishes essentially the same thing without adding anything to your block log. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:21, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
I confirm that I want to be blocked for two years. Also full-protect my user page. I hope you will leave a block summary like "per user request" or "self-requested block" or something similar. Would like to ask one thing though: since you're not a CheckUser, how will come to know if I use a sock account or IP for editing? Regards, SD0001 (talk) 08:25, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Even if I was a checkuser, I doubt it would be considered appropriate to check if someone was evading a block they requested themselves. There isn't actually any policy here, those are just my personal terms. If that's ok with you I'll go ahead and block you. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:22, 10 March 2015 (UTC)


I see you grant Rollback, any chance I can have it, thanks. --Mark Winterbottom (talk) 19:26, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

(Non-administrator observation) As this was your second edit and you have a total of four, I believe I can speak for Beeblebrox and say not a chance. Try again when you have roughly 400-500 undeleted edits. Origamite 19:38, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Nobody asked you, I asked the administrator, get back in your cage and keep your mouth closed. --Mark Winterbottom (talk) 19:43, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
@Mark Winterbottom: Fine, disregard me. I'm just trying to spare Beeblebrox's time. We generally don't give user rights until you've proven yourself capable of editing properly with an established track record. Also, please redact the personal attack in your comment. Finally, perhaps you should slow your rollback and admin ambitions down until you have more than 11 edits, of which eight are in the user and user talk namespaces. Origamite 01:15, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
"We" don't give user rights? "You" are not an admin or have you forgotten, I am asking Beeblebrox. He will decide whether his time needs to be spared or not, so this time, please (kindly) remove yourself from this conversation and go hunting for vandalism, there's a good chap.
Grossly unqualified + incredibly rude = I don't think so. Beeblebrox (talk) 05:42, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Hello Beeblebrox, how's it going mate? So, I am civil now as you can see, so, what you say? Rollback? Mark Winterbottom (talk) 18:21, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── No. End of discussion. Beeblebrox (talk) 18:38, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Two questions[edit]

Beeblebrox, I recently considered the idea of a self-block in protest of a proposed ban on another user. I read your bullets in "Conditions" and I had a question about bullet #3, "The block term should be for a significant period of time, not just a day or two." My consideration, then, was how the ANI would turn out. As it happened, I did not need to take that sort of stand, but had I, I wasn't willing to go for a six-month block on myself to protest a gang-up on another editor (I'd look for another form of protest, instead). But if an incremental 72-hour block were imposed on that editor I would have requested a self-block on myself, in sympathy. Does your bullet #3 exclude that sort of protest block for that duration?

Second, in a discussion above, you point to a script known as the "WikiBreak Enforcer". Would you consider adding this information to your general guideline page on this issue, kindly? Thanks,   —Aladdin Sane (talk) 06:22, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

On your first point, no I would not block someone at their request for any length of time if it was intended as a protest action. That's not a judgement on whatever situation you are referring to, that's just not the point of why I (very rarely) accept reqests to be blocked. On the other hand you have a point that mentioning the wikibreak enforcer in my conditions would be a good idea. Beeblebrox (talk) 04:36, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
