Blocked[edit]

Checkuser indicates that you are behind the recent page-move vandalism spree done with the account User:Ultimate cosmic evil. As this account was created two months ago, and used to disrupt Wikipedia on a massive scale, both accounts have been blocked indefinitely. To be unblocked, please user the {{unblock}} template, and make your case for why you should be unblocked. A couple other checkusers have already reviewed the situation, though others should feel free to do so. In this case, indefinite does not mean infinite, but you will need to convince either another checkuser that there was a mistake made, or the community that this sort of vandalism spree will not occur again.

Why was checkuser used? Ginsuloft (talk) 04:57, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
It was used per policy to mitigate the harm done by the mass vandalism. Risker (talk) 05:06, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
I checked the page-move vandal account to find any sleeper socks that might continue the vandalism spree. I was greatly disappointed to find that it was Confirmed as you. Accordingly, you are now blocked indefinitely for good-hand/bad-hand sock puppetry and vandalism. Reaper Eternal (talk) 20:09, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Unrelated-ish: why did you turn off the bot that removes blocked users from the AIV page? only (talk) 15:19, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

What have you done.[edit]

Face-sad.svg What have you done, I thought you could strive to be a successful ht tWikipedia editor, but all hopes have nonetheless......dashed away with the creation of Ultimate Cosmic Evil. Dreth 16:03, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

  • I'm very disappointed, Ginsuloft. After your failed RfA, I was hoping that you could try again, but apparently not. sad Epicgenius (talk) 18:09, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

What are you talking about[edit]

I've never edited any such page! Please explain this [1]. I am on a dynamic IP, FYI.117.194.199.204 (talk) 14:02, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I'm not sure if Ginsuloft will see this message, so I will try to answer. If you didn't make the edit, please ignore the message; it was posted last September for whoever was connected to that IP address at the time. There is more detail about this in the box at the bottom of User talk:117.194.199.204. -- John of Reading (talk) 14:54, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi Ginsuloft, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:41, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
