Can you look into User:Armaanaziz, which is copyvio of User:Armanaziz. Can you comment about this on Vanjagenije's talk? – nafSadh did say 04:14, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

On this same topic, is there a way to unscramble the history of Fani, Mali, which these clowns moved to Feni, Bangladesh? The page might have originally been called Fani, and there seems to be no reason for the page name to be longer than that. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 01:09, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Umm, the move logs for Fani, Mali don't show any connection with Feni, Bangladesh. I agree though that we don't need the disambiguation with "Mali" so I'm going to move the Malian town back to Fani. De728631 (talk) 02:40, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Umm indeed (I'm not used to looking at move logs). They obfuscated the trail by moving "Fani" first to "Feni (town)", and then "Feni (town)" to "Feni, Bangladesh", which is still visible in the history listings:

From Feni, Bangladesh: Revision history

  • 8 December 2014‎ (+3,452)‎ added a lot of material, changing the page from being about Fani (Mali) to being about Feni (Bangladesh)
  • 9 December 2014‎ Armaanaziz moved page Fani to Feni (town)
  • 9 December 2014‎ moved page Feni (town) to Feni, Bangladesh

From Fani: Revision history

  • 9 December 2014‎ Geographic.location (+3,946)‎ created the page, apparently called Fani, Mali
  • 13 December 2014‎ moved page Fani, Mali to Fani
  • 13 December 2014‎ Geographic.location moved page Fani to Fani, Mali over redirect
  • and now you have moved it back to Fani (thanks ;-))

The history of Feni (town), the insignificant redirect, is therefore misleading, with only one line in it, omitting the initial move from Fani:

  • 01:15, 9 December 2014‎ (talk | contribs)‎ . . (46 bytes) (+46)‎ . . ( moved page Feni (town) to Feni, Bangladesh: This article is about the city. For the district, see Feni District.)

Is the status quo the best that can be done to clean up after them, do you know? The history of Fani starting from its creation 17 February 2009‎ by Dr. Blofeld is pre-pended to the history of Feni, Bangladesh. Although this looks like a complete mess, I think it has a disturbing quality reminiscent of the copyvio of user pages, that it also gives the appearance that pages they worked on were not created by them, but had an established history.

Similarly, it looks as if they were responsible for creating pages of significant interest, such as Brahmanbaria. Could they be trying to fake an entry on a list such as WP:NOA? Sminthopsis84 (talk) 14:32, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Oh dear, that was pretty messy but I think I have successfully split up the histories of Fani as the original article created by Blofeld and Feni, Bangladesh as created by Armaanaziz. De728631 (talk) 15:43, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Impressive untanglement, thanks. When I get a chance and can summon the required fortitude, I'll look around to see if there are other pages amongst their debris that have the wrong history pre-pended. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 22:24, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I don't know about their motivation but I don't think that NOA played a role. All these accounts had so few edits that they wouldn't even appear in the recent statistics. I could imagine though that this guy eventually got confused with his multiple accounts and the similar town names (Fani vs Feni). De728631 (talk) 15:49, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Good thought. Perhaps it was merely a troll training exercise. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 22:24, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I think it is pure vandalism. And probably it is orchestrated by a rather experienced editor (in that case, we still don't know who is the master of the socks). I'd call this kind of activities as WikiTerrorism. – nafSadh did say 00:56, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Global account[edit]

Hi De728631! As a Steward I'm involved in the upcoming unification of all accounts organized by the Wikimedia Foundation (see m:Single User Login finalisation announcement). By looking at your account, I realized that you don't have a global account yet. In order to secure your name, I recommend you to create such account on your own by submitting your password on Special:MergeAccount and unifying your local accounts. If you have any problems with doing that or further questions, please don't hesitate to ping me with {{ping|DerHexer}}. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 23:32, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for this notice but I am aware of the unified login feature. However, for security reasons I am against using a global account and prefer to keep my single accounts with individual passwords and user names across different WM projects. Should one of my passwords ever get hacked it would only compromise one of my accounts while the rest would remain secure. So unless the unified login becomes mandatory I'd rather not use it. De728631 (talk) 20:50, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Completely understood. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 20:57, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi, while I understand your concerns and they are certainly valid in general, I don't think they apply to Wikimedia global accounts. First of all your local accounts will be automigrated into global ones soon, so you will then have several global accounts. As you probably have different passwords and email addresses your accounts wont be automatically mergeable, thus each local account will be renamed and turned into one global account with the new name. Due to that CentralAuth will then create multiple accounts on the English Wikipedia for you (which can become a mess). On top of that, I don't see the security benefit of having multiple accounts, that all use the same infrastructure (and eg. access from one site to another is possible with JavaScript via CORS). In fact you make yourself easier to attack by having multiple passwords that could be used to hijack one of your accounts and then to take over other accounts from there (unless you took countermeasures to that, eg. by disabling JavaScript). If you care about security a lot, I suggest you to create a global account and choose a very good password for it. If you want to do more, you can look into using something like NoScript, which is especially interesting over here, as we have a fairly high number of users (all administrators) to change JavaScript. - Hoo man (talk) 22:15, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
Ah well, since some sort of automigration is ahead anyways I have now merged my accounts. There's one at Meta though which I don't remember having created and that doesn't use any passwords I could possibly have invented myself, so I guess that will have to be usurped one day.

Seeking your help to translate from English[edit]

Hello my fellow Wikipedian,

Thanks for taking your time off to help hapless Wikipedians and otherwise stucked-up articles find their way to the forefront of other non-English speaking readers. I would hope that I have approached you the right way.

Nonetheless, I humbly seek your intervention to translate the following pages from English to your native tongue, since I gathered that it may mean something to Wiki readers in other languages.

Thanks in anticipation for facilitating this request.

Hello there. I am fairly busy with other projects right now, but I might consider translating these articles for the German language Wikipedia. The Ten Letters to Obama, however, will first have to survive the deletion discussion. De728631 (talk) 16:30, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
