Serious vandalism?[edit]

Is there a way to report serious, multi-page vandalism? Like, a way of giving it top-priority or something? Dustin (talk) 03:35, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Like that IP user from a second ago. Dustin (talk) 03:40, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
The IRC channels !admin function might be of use of that. Active admins tend to lurk there, and if it's particularly obvious that it's vandalism, would be happy to block them for you. Linky: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Help/clickthrough (Note that !admin pings ALL admins in the channel. So make sure that it is serious, else just do a regular message.)

Okay; you can just look in this talk page's history, and you can see that the same IP came off to this very talk page during its rampage (and it was a rampage the way I see it; I have never dealt with this much vandalism from a single user at once till now). I sure have learned how useful it is to have my newly acquired rollback rights. (Just look at my contributions for about this time) Thanks for the suggestion. I don't know what you mean specifically by !admin, but I'll try to look into it. Dustin (talk) 04:16, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I see the particularly egregious vandalism. Anywho, what I was meaning by the !admin function is that !admin is a command in the IRC channel that when typed and entered pings all admins in that channel. So if I type '!admin There is this one IP user vandalizing about 10 different talk pages with variants of 'fat nigger', could some admin take a look? XLINKHERE' It would ping the admins to that statement, and they'd take a look and probably block the IP or protect pages if there are a barrage of vandalistic edits towards one page. Tutelary (talk) 04:19, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Okay, that makes sense... we don't have to say anything about this, but I think I by coincidence saw you on another page earlier today. In any case, thanks for the instructions. Maybe next time, I won't have to constantly revert vandalism before the situation is handled (although rollback is pretty much instantaneous). Dustin (talk) 04:24, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

sa.wikipedia.org problem[edit]

Hi ! I want to share some problems with you, because you are connected with sa.wikipedia.org. Our admin is neglecting us. Admin is not involving us in policy making process and when we are propose some requests, then also he don't even reply us. I and many other users of sa.wikipedia.org are felt helpless against our Admin. Please guide us in this problem. if you will not take it seriously, then in future it may be a big problem of sa.wikipedia.org. NehalDaveND (talk) 10:43, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

@NehalDaveND: I know that this may be late, but the Wikipedias are mostly independent of each other, so I don't think that the English Wikipedia can do much with the Sanskrit Wikipedia. The only exception I know of is stewards, but can only act if there are no administrators in the language. Piguy101 (talk) 00:20, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

LGBT rights in Croatia[edit]

Hello!

There is a serious problem with that article. An individual is constantly trying to destroy it, claiming that it is a propaganda, and that he is trying to stop "queer propaganda" as he calls it. He is deleting things that are official and have references, and is also copying things from different paragraphs and putting them in the introduction bit. He also has help from two other individuals, and wants for this article to have a view from opposition. I don't understand why would he, as article clearly states who is the opposition to LGBT rights in Croatia and why. I don't know what to do anymore. I can keep changing it, but that can last forever. We need a solution. People use Wikipedia do their research, and I don't think homophobia expressed by those individuals helps. That article is not a propaganda, but a neutral and informative piece of work on which people have worked hard. Thank you 11raccoon1 (talk) 21:40, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Read WP:BOOMERANG. The way it looks, you were reverted by several established editors. Tgeorgescu (talk) 23:42, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Updating bot[edit]

Hello. I am updating HBC AIV helperbot to make proper use of the modern API and solve the problem with the bot logging out. While I am at it I am doing other general improvements such as adding the newer block flags.

While I am working hard to make sure that it works properly please do not hesitate to block the bot if there is some sort of issue with it. Please leave autoblock off though. Chillum 17:47, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Please put usernames in summaries[edit]

Twinkle and other tools automatically put the username being acted upon in the edit summary. However, when editing the page manually, it's easy to forget to do so, which makes it difficult to keep track of your list of pending reports, since the AIV page history is the only way to catch the quickly-deleted completed ones. Please try to stick usernames in edit summaries. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 10:16, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

A bot to produce a page similar to this one would be handy as well. I don't know how to write a bot.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 18:38, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
