Puppeter template.svg

You have been accused of sockpuppetry. Please refer to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/FetchFan21 for evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with notes for the suspect before editing the evidence page.

Block[edit]

Stop x nuvola.svg
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for abusing multiple accounts, per own admission. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below, but you should read our guide to appealing blocks first. T.

Request reason:

I didn't mean that I was a sockpuppet when I added {{sockpuppeteer}}, I meant that I was accused of being a sockpuppet at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Simulation12/Archive#25 June 2010 (Formerly Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/FetchFan21)

Decline reason:

Rather unusual behavior for a suspected sock trying to assert innocence. In any case, per the SPi I'm not unblocking until this is resolved. — Daniel Case (talk) 02:43, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

Request reason:

User:Mac, User:Punk1, User talk:12.11.149.5, and User talk:Emico have the template {{Sockpuppeteer}} on thier talk or user pages and are not blocked. I added the template also and was blocked.

Decline reason:

That's not even remotely close to being a valid unblock reason. See WP:NOTTHEM. Smashvilletalk 18:47, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Hidividedby5 (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

Here is the whole story: I was never welcomed to Wikipedia[1], so I had no idea about the policies on Wikipedia. I didn't know about WP:THREATEN, so I made a threat at template:nofuture[2]. I was then accused of sockpuppettry at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet Investigations/FetchFan21 because of this and other reasons. So, I added the template {{sockpuppeteer}} to my user:hidividedby5, thinking it meant you were a suspected sockpuppet[3]. The case was ended[4], but I forgot to remove the template[5].

My references:

  1. ^ The history of my talk page. If you look through the bottom, you will see that the first edit by another user was almost 5 months after I created my account, by which time a user is not really considered "new".
  2. ^ Later deleted for other reasons
  3. ^ [Template:Sockpuppeteer/doc#Non-checkuser_usage Documentation to the template sockpuppeteer] and the [Category:Wikipedia sockpuppeteers category] it adds you to.
  4. ^ case closed page
  5. ^ my user page and its history
P.S. I found an error with the blocking. When I am logged in on the secure server, I'm not blocked on the regular Wikipedia server. I just wanted you to know.

Decline reason:

What a gigantic wall of wikilawyering. Here's the minimum response: when you signed up, you must have read about the 5 pillars of Wikipedia. I know of zero welcome templates that warn against WP:THREATEN, so not being told about it does not excuse you from exhibiting positive behaviour. If you would like to re-read WP:GAB and try one more succinct unblock request that covers the bases, please do. (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 17:23, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Request reason:

Please unblock me. I understand that what I did at Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman is wrong. I have read all of the 5 pillars and will not threaten again.

Decline reason:

Well, this is a change of tune. Unfortunately, it still doesn't really convince me that you're sincere. What did you do wrong, what actual policies did you violate, and what will you do to avoid this happening again? You're going to need a lot more than "I'm sorry" to get unblocked, especially given the previous three requests where you deny any wrongdoing or try to lawyer your way out of it.

Hidividedby5 (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

To answer your questions, I did not violate a policy at all. I added the template sockpuppeteer to my user page (see https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/w/index.php?title=User:Hidividedby5&oldid=371112688) as I was accused of being a sockpuppet. I was accused (at wp:sockpuppet investigations/simulation12/archive) because I violated the policy at WP:INTIM. I argued this in the first and third appeals, but was declined both times. I have read all of the 5 pillars and the template was deleted (because another template did the exact same thing)

Decline reason:

What you've written here gives me no confidence that your behavior will not be repeated, and after this many requests, I doubt it's going to happen. If you really want to edit, try asking again after a few months at minimum. Continuing to repeat requests now will likely lead to your ability to edit this page being revoked.

I do hope you realize what you're saying doesn't make sense. Your last appeal said "I understand that what I did at Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman is wrong." Here you say "I did not violate a policy at all." Then two sentences later you say "I violated the policy at WP:INTIM." Which is it? Hersfold (t/a/c) 18:07, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
What I mean is I violated a policy at WP:INTIM a couple months ago. But I violated no policies to get blocked. hidividedby5 (talk) 21:19, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Welcome to the Novels WikiProject[edit]

Book collection.jpg

Hi, and welcome to the Novels WikiProject! As you may have guessed, we're a group of editors working to improve Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to fiction books, often referred to as "novels".

A few features that you might find helpful:

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask one of the coordinators or an experienced member of the project; we will be happy to assist in any way we can. Again, welcome, and we look forward to seeing you around! —Ed (talkmajestic titan) 01:20, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Trackers redirect[edit]

Why did you redirect that to Rick Riordan? I don't see how they're related - Patrick Carman wrote the series, right? (Also, would you mind if I copyedit your editnotice?) PrincessofLlyr royal court 01:41, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I just noticed that and fixed it. I get the two authors mixed up a lot, as they are both authors of The 39 Clues. Sure, you can copyedit my editnotice. hidividedby5 (talk) 01:47, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I thought that might be the case, which is why I AGF reverted the edit to Riordan's page. I also fixed the spelling of amateur in your notice. It's a rough word, but do you have spellcheck on your computer? Very useful tool! Happy editing!

Unblock request (4 years later)[edit]

Request reason:

I was blocked roughly 4 years ago. To this day, I have not been given a sufficient reason as to why I was blocked. The block reason was completely incorrect, saying that I admitted to being a sockpuppet. As you can see from my talk page, I added the template that, in short, says "I was accused of being a sockpuppet". I was accused here, but that was never acted upon as it was simply "look into this person". In the past 4 years, I have changed my username to iggyvolz instead of hidividedby5, and have created an account on Wikia. I understand completely why I was mentioned in the discussion, but the placement of this template was not sufficient reason to say that I admitted to anything. I did create the account iggyvolz to contribute on the mediawiki site, and if I understand correctly, I would be able to log in with this account on wikipedia. However, I would rather be unblocked on this account and go through the proper procedures than use my new account to go around my block. hidividedby5 (talk) 18:59, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

OK, so you have created another account, which you haven't used to make any edits on the English language Wikipedia. That isn't in itself a good enough reason to be unblocked. And if you did use the other account for block evasion, it would just be blocked. In the above discussion, you admit that you threatened another editor, which is concerning. In this context, I'm not prepared to grant your unblock request. PhilKnight (talk) 21:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

That is a good decision to rather be unblocked on this account because using the other account would get it blocked as well for sock puppetry. The Newspaper (talk) 20:59, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

I do not feel as if anyone has actually reviewed my request. I have never been given a valid reason why I was blocked as I never admitted to anything. I am taking my case to the arbitration committee. hidividedby5 (talk) 21:21, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Unblocked[edit]

Following a successful appeal to the Ban Appeals Subcommittee, the committee has unblocked you under the standard offer. Happy editing. WormTT(talk) 12:56, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
