Webhost/checkuser block

Could you take at look at the unblock request on User talk:Shahmalinda, please? I'm not sure what actions, if any, I should take. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 19:14, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

@SarekOfVulcan: I've started to look into it, but I need to review it with fresh eyes, as things are more complicated than first sight. -- DQ (ʞlɐʇ) 05:20, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

A problem which is almost dealt with

Hello there! thank you for blocking Bergman Gotland and his sock, but he still continues to make disruptive edits from this one [12]. I would appreciate if you took care of this one too - good day to you!. --HistoryofIran (talk) 16:01, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Aaaand another one [13] strikes :(. --HistoryofIran (talk) 17:09, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Blocked the first, second already done. -- DQ (ʞlɐʇ) 18:39, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you mate! I really appreciate it :). It is almost weekend so enjoy it :)! --HistoryofIran (talk) 18:20, 5 March 2015 (UTC)


DQ, sorry I totally botched my recent Oversight request. (How did I forget to include links?! Idiotic!) Anyhow, I've replied via email with links. Sorry for the delay. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 19:49, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

No worries, your not the first nor the last. Looks like someone took care of it before I could get back to it. -- DQ (ʞlɐʇ) 18:40, 4 March 2015 (UTC)


DQ, is it too late to request a CU on another possible TyrusThomas4lyf sock account or do I have to file another SPI? Observer2015 (talk) 05:17, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

I really find the irony where socks are reporting socks. -- DQ (ʞlɐʇ) 18:41, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Suggestion regarding DQB

Hello. I was patrolling user creation this morning and came across User:Wangmuncher90001234, which I reported to WP:UAA. I was surprised the bot had not picked up on it. I realize that "wang" is a common name in eastern Asia, but it is also a slang reference to "penis". I think the situation is similar to "anus", which is seen as a name or part of a name in south Asia. Perhaps the bot should pick up on "wang" with a low confidence? --Hammersoft (talk) 17:50, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

@Hammersoft: I usually try and keep clear of modifying the different lists that control the bot, unless I'm just helping with the syntax. The best place to ask for it is at WT:UAA. The reason for this is I rarely patrol UAA anymore, and I might not see a potential issue of a filter change. -- DQ (ʞlɐʇ) 18:44, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Ping-Pong 6Flamingo (that's a weird subject line)

Hi DQ, not sure what to do here: I was about to file a new report at SPI on Ping-Pong-Ping-Pow as a sock of 6Flamingo, but @Coffee: beat me to it and blocked them as a sock on behavioral evidence. (Thanks for that, Coffee!) I noticed at Little Wizard Tao that this article hadn't been edited in about a year before the 6Flamingo socks, but the disruptions begin with MaelLePetitPrincePuisRoi, which suggests that he might be the sockmaster of this bunch, not 6Flamingo. (MaelLePetit intersects with Ping at Ella the Elephant and at Little Wizard Tao.) If he is, then we'd have to move the socks under that older account. Also, in the SPI I erroneously described MaelLePetitPrincePuisRoi as a confirmed sock of Maelbros, but I don't think that was confirmed. Is that possible? My hope would be that we can condense them if they are the same vandals. Lemme know what I can do here to make life easier. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:13, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

I know you have a bit on your plate right now, but if you have the chance to spare a moment could you let me know if there's any update on this case? Thanks, Mike VTalk 22:39, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Past blocks

You had made a number of blocks in past, targeting a particular editor in December 2012. There is a great likelyhood of sock puppetry that has been overlooked. Kindly check your email. Thank you. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 08:04, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
