Self-requested block[edit]

Greetings. I would like to take a break from Wikipedia, as I feel I'm habitually on here too often, am getting a bit stressed outwith editing and need to make space for other activities in real life. In the past, WikiBreaks have proved futile for me, as when I WikiBreak my account, I almost always find myself editing while logged out or using my alt account to request that an admin lift the WikiBreak. So I'm requesting you block my account per this.

I'd like my main account and my two alternate accounts, Linguist111 (away) and Linguist111 (testing), blocked until 00:00 BST on 1 May (which means six weeks, beginning from Monday), with email and TPA disabled. Out of habit, I may forget that my accounts are blocked and edit while logged out. To prevent this from happening, I'd like my IP,, which is static and unshared (all edits were made by me), also blocked with email and TPA disabled. In a moment, I'll add to this message while logged out, to confirm is my IP. Thank you in advance. Linguisttalk|contribs 21:03, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

This is me, Linguist111, editing under the IP, to confirm this is my IP address and that all this IP's edits were made by me. (talk) 21:04, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Ypu do appear to meet my basic requirements for self-requested blocks. Because this is a hard block, I usually ask the user to sleep on it, and if they haven't changed their minds by the next day I go ahead and do it. The only wrinkle is your IP. I trust that it was you that made those edits, and that this has been your IP for some time, but geolocate says it is in fact a dynamic IP, so it could be re-assigned between now and May and some third party would be blocked with no means of on-wiki appeal, so I may need to leave TP access open there. If you like I can watchlist it and if you find yourself asking for the block lifted I'll remind you that you asked for it and won't do it. Beeblebrox (talk) 22:12, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Okay, I'm fine with that. I'll leave a note on my IP's talk page, reminding myself not to request an unblock. Linguisttalk|contribs 22:28, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
I have left a note on my IP's talk and am ready to be blocked now. Thank you and see you in 6 weeks! Linguisttalk|contribs 12:49, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi Beeblebrox . I hope everything is ok for you

Can I get this , I hope you help me

Thank you Kurdistantolive (talk) 20:50, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Please go throught he normal request process at WP:PERM, once again keeping in mind that this user right actually does nothing for the user it is granted to and is only designed to lighten the load for new page patrollers. Beeblebrox (talk) 00:00, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
Now can I get this . I need just you help me ,thank you Kurdistantolive (talk) 08:06, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
Not done If you insist on doing this here instead of following the normal procedure, fine. Your articles are of a fairly low quality and some of them appear to be sourced to some websites tha do not meet the definition of reliable sources, so no. Again, this doesn't actually do anything for you anyway, so there's no point in making sucha big deal about it anyway. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:28, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
Ok . I am good agent , as you like Beeblebrox Kurdistantolive (talk) 16:17, 26 March 2017 (UTC)


Can I know about how to upload a picture on a Wikipedia page? Pr2152000 (talk) 22:12, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

If it is your own work and eligible for a feee license, you should upload it at Wikimedia Commons. Your username and login information from here is valid there as well, so you basically already have an account there. You can just press the "upload file" link on the left hand side of the page and it will guide you through the process. It's a bit more complicated if the image is non-free. You can use the "upload file" link , on the left side of the page here on Wikipedia, but you will need to be able to provide a fair use rationale as part of the process, or the image may be deleted.
Once you have uploaded it's pretty easy to add it to articles, you just link it as you would an article title. You can adjust the size, placement, and caption as well. Most images are in thumbnail format. For example, if you look up at the top of this page there is a graphic of the "Hierarchy of disagreement" which is placed there by this [[image:Graham's Hierarchy of Disagreement.svg|left|thumb|please stay in the top three tiers]]. That's the image name, followed by the placement, size, and caption, all within double brackets like any other wiki link. There's a lot more information on this at WP:IMAGE. Beeblebrox (talk) 22:31, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

If it is not my work? If I need to add a cover pic to the soundtrack of a movie what should be done? Pr2152000 (talk) 16:56, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Page issues[edit]

Can I know the reason for page issues on the page Kaatru Veliyidai (soundtrack)?? All the citations are clearly stated by me. I also request you to add a cover pic to the page as I am unable to do so Pr2152000 (talk) 16:56, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

If you mean the tag at the top of the page, it was put there by a user who observed that there were no sources. Once you add sources you can remove it, which I have just done.
To upload a cover image, you would need to find one online, download it to your computer or other device, and then upload it here using the "upload file" link over in the left hand column. Album covers are a pretty common upload and the process will guide you though what you need to do once you have the image.

Administrators' newsletter – April 2017[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (March 2017).

Administrator changes

added TheDJ
removed XnualaCJOldelpasoBerean HunterJimbo WalesAndrew cKaranacsModemacScott

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a discussion on the backlog of unpatrolled files, consensus was found to create a new user right for autopatrolling file uploads. Implementation progress can be tracked on Phabricator.
  • The BLPPROD grandfather clause, which stated that unreferenced biographies of living persons were only eligible for proposed deletion if they were created after March 18, 2010, has been removed following an RfC.
  • An RfC has closed with consensus to allow proposed deletion of files. The implementation process is ongoing.
  • After an unsuccessful proposal to automatically grant IP block exemption, consensus was found to relax the criteria for granting the user right from needing it to wanting it.

Technical news

  • After a recent RfC, moved pages will soon be featured in a queue similar to Special:NewPagesFeed and require patrolling. Moves by administrators, page movers, and autopatrolled editors will be automatically marked as patrolled.
  • Cookie blocks have been deployed. This extends the current autoblock system by setting a cookie for each block, which will then autoblock the user if they switch accounts, even under a new IP.

User TheGracefulSlick whom you gave rollback rights seem to use it not in a proper way. As a foreground, user has a locked page from discussion (that's why I'm writing it to you), second, user rollbacks template {{neutrality}} along with adding misleading information which is currently disputed with links to official documents stating not what The Guardian says. I will gladly participate in discussion with this user but what was done is inacceptable. Where can I dispute the rights of rollbacker you gave to this user? — Alex Khimich (talk) 23:12, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Excuse me Alex Khimich but if you really wanted to discuss you could have simply pinged me to your talk page, not here. My talk page is locked due to constant vandalism and harassment. I rolled back your edits to return to the last point the article was stable so you may discuss. You failed to address several concerns other editors brought up which is why you are currently at ANI.TheGracefulSlick (talk) 00:21, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
Well, you actually aren't supposed to use rollback for anything but vandalism, so they actually do have a point (this is why I've always preferred WP:TWINKLE's rollback tool, which is more versitale), but this one little incident isn't egregious enough to even consider just revoking it. I would add that the reporting user was clearly engaging in edit warring which is not ok. Beeblebrox (talk) 23:59, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Recent edits[edit]

Hi Zaphod,
Kindly take a look at the comments that I posted on the request page for rollback. I am not sure if you are getting notifications of pings.
Also, the concerns expressed in previous section (the section above this one) by user TheGracefulSlick is exactly what I was talking about in the request. I will not be like a monkey with Tommy Gun in his hands. I know where my towel is. Face-smile.svgusernamekiran[talk] 18:18, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Fine. Face-sad.svg
I will request after many days from now when I will have enough experience. But would you please take a look at my contribution history, and then reply to me on the request for permissions page? Please? —usernamekiran[talk] 21:52, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

Removed a full section on a school[edit]

Hi their, I am talking to you regarding an edit i made, i made an edit on Laisterdyke Leadership Academy, i restored some sections, three to be precise i know that one for the students was not sourced so i shouldn't have done that one that was my fault, and the current principal i showed you a source and you kept that i thank you. However you removed the entire Faculty section as it was unsourced i produced a source showing the current headteacher and since the section is on just headteachers their is no need to remove it. You might say that the administration has no matter on wikipedia but i disagree with you, i am the executive spokesperson for the Schools LPG divison and 3/4 of parents want all this information to be online so they can know the history of the school and i also believe this idea. For the matter that it was unsourced i can provide multiple sources showing that everybody was part of the faculty at one point in time.

Mrs Joan Law[1] Jen Mclintosh[2] Lisa Corrigan [3]

This shows the faculty were their at one point in time please add back this information as it is incredibly important to the school and the growth between parents and ourselves. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Awais 1234567 (talkcontribs) 19:17, 5 April 2017 (UTC)


Your reply actually explains a lot, in that it is clear you have a fundamental misunderstanding of what Wikipedi is and how it works. I don't mean that as an insult or anything, this actually happens all the time. So here's a few points that may help clarify the situation for you:
  1. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. It is explicitly not a free web host or social media website where content is controlled by article subjects
  2. By that same token, what "3/4 of parents" of kids attending that specific school want is not relevant. Take a look at other articles on schools for some idea of how out of place it is to list the entire history of one specific position at the school. We aren't writing articles for the benefit of the school or the parents of kids who attend it but rather for a general audience. The school has its own website, linked in the infobox of the article, where it is free to document as much of its own history as desired.
  3. You have made it clear that you have a conflict of interest in regard to this subject and additionally are paid by said subject so frankly it would be best if you didn't edit the article at all and instead requested edits on the article's talk page so that they can be reviewed by uninvolved, neutral editors first. You should also disclose your connection at the article itself if you plan to propose more edits, the conflict of interest page linked above has more information on how to do that.
hope that clears a few things up for you, I'm also going to post our standard advice for persons with a conflict of interest on your talk page. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:49, 5 April 2017 (UTC)]
I understand your point of view and i thank you for the advice i have read all the information you have given me which is a big help so thank you for that too! I understand the conflict of interest bit so from here on out i wont be making any more edits on this page thank you. But i hope you do one last thing and put back up the faculty section as it can be sourced but other than that thank you a lot!

Hi, it certainly isn't my intention to wheel war here, so I won't touch his block, but it seems clear this user only edited Wikipedia for self-promotional purposes, which usually merits a hard block. Andrevan@ 21:14, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

I'll admit that admins like yourself form back in the "cowboy days" may have done things differently 10-12 years ago, but I'm having trouble believing that an admin of your tenure genuinely doesn't know and understand that even a hard block doesn't involve revoking talk page and email access for no apparent reason. Beeblebrox (talk) 21:25, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
That is my bad. I checked all the boxes without really paying attention. The part I meant to add was autoblocking the IP address and blocking registration. Andrevan@ 21:27, 5 April 2017 (UTC)


Hi, I wanted to ask you and User:Widr, to advise me what I could do to give you both and the other admins patrolling Requests for permissions no issues with approving my request. I first requested it in August 2016 and since then have done a range of things, including taking the time to re-learn the basics and the tools of the trade, as well as changing the way I do edits as recommended by User:Widr. My goal is to be able to use and master STiki. Thanks for your time, greatly appreciated. Best, Nicnote • ask me a question • contributions 18:29, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

I was just looking as well and agree that you seem ready for it and have been doing good anti-vandalism work lately. Just make sure you don't ever edit war and only use rollback on vandalism and you'll be fine. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:59, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Hello Beeblebrox; in regards to your statement, It's not that opposes without rationales don't "seem" to count, they actually don't count., on this RfA to another editor: would you please review if this is exactly what you mean to say? The weight of !votes is decided by a closing crat - and while I know I have publicly stated that "I would consider straight [Support|Oppose]. ~~~~ entries with less weight" in an RfA closing, I would not weight them to absolute zero (although another crat could). I'd rather not draw attention to this in the middle of the active RfA - if on review you feel refactoring your comment slightly is appropriate I won't jump in on the conversation. Thank you for your attention on this matter. — xaosflux Talk 23:43, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

I've lightly refactored two of my comments. My own RFB was shot down, so maybe I'm not the one to ask, but when somebody comes into a discussion and openly declares their unwillingness to actually discuss anything that strikes me as exactly the sort of thing that can be safely ignored, but I'll grant that that is my opinion and not policy. Beeblebrox (talk) 00:48, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, that is sufficient - and if I were closing I do indeed give significantly less weight to those type of comments as they don't provide significant input to the consensus building exercise that RfA is supposed to be, though the other 'crats may certainly operate somewhat differently. Best regards, — xaosflux Talk 05:02, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Emily Temple-Wood[edit]

Hey Beebs, I saw that you recently move-protected Emily Temple-Wood. I'm wondering if you somehow conflicted with The ed17 (though there is some time gap between... maybe a tab left open for a bit?), since your edit summary suggests you were trying to do the same thing. I bring this up because it looks like you've shortened the edit protection that was in place from one month to two days; if you look through the page history you'll see this is probably not a great idea. GorillaWarfare (talk) 04:19, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Erp, no that certainly is not what I was trying to do, I meant to add move protection and leave edit protection as it was. Thanks for the heads up, I'll fix it right now. Beeblebrox (talk) 04:36, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Archiving at WP:Editing restrictions[edit]

Hey Beeblebrox, why would you archive restrictions that are still in effect? How would anyone find them?--Bbb23 (talk) 15:28, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

The archiving procedure was established here. The discussion was listed at WP:CENT while it was open. I posted notices on the talk page as I was going through and doing this and put pointers at the top of each section notifying users of the existence of the archive. If I've archived anything not meeting the standards for doing so please fel free to add it back to the main page. Beeblebrox (talk) 16:31, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
More evidence that I never know what's going on. It looks like your removal met the standard for archiving. However, the user has returned (using a different username), which I believe means I can move it back. Am I right? If so, do I need to remove it from the archive or just copy it back and also leave it in the archive. Forgive me, but where is the archive?--Bbb23 (talk) 17:02, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
There's so many policy discussions lately that it's easy to miss one. The archive is at Wikipedia:Editing restrictions/Archive. If someone listed there has returned to active editing the procedure is to copy their entry back to the main page. Beeblebrox (talk) 20:29, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Heh, I miss lots of them, and yet I don't miss them. Face-smile.svg I decided that when you said "copy" you really meant "move", i.e., removing the entry from the archive and reinserting it in the main page. Hope that's right, but I can always undo the archive if it's not. I had no idea where to put it within the section, so I put it at the top as it's old, although now slightly updated with my note. Thanks for your help.--Bbb23 (talk) 22:06, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

You obviously are exactly the person the autoblock was meant to stop, and as such you are now blocked directly. Beeblebrox (talk) 16:39, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

You were actually making that last post there while I was writing up the block, so I didn't see it until just after I did it. Beeblebrox (talk) 02:20, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
It appears to me that Silver Master is block evading using the IP, which geolocates to Egypt, and has onlt edited Silver Master's articles. See Silver Master's sport-related article creations for an indication that Silver Master is located in Egypt as well. Beyond My Ken (talk) 15:31, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Joel Ellis[edit]

I am trying to understand why the pages created by Joel Ellis were all deleted as if he never existed. (Joel Ellis, Cats in Boots, Ellis and Angel, Joey Angel) He is actually a musician that was a part of those actual groups and the pages were created by him. Please advise. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:240:9:84B6:81C1:BB4C:D5D7:3D4F (talk) 05:18, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

An article being written by its subject is actually considered a negative factor. Autobiographies don't really belong in an encyclopedia. The issue here appears to have been notability. I can prove that I exist, and as it happens I have been in a few bands that got some press and I could prove they existed too. That doesn't mean that either I or the bands I was in were notable enough for an encyclopedia article. There is a discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Joel Ellis that shows how the decision to delete the article was made, my role was simply to evaluate the consensus reached there and act appropriately. If the situation has changed in the last five years, you could always make a draft article and if it demonstrates notability better than the old deleted version it could be made into an article again.

User talk:Silver Master page protection[edit]

Is there a policy-based reason for page protecting User talk:Silver Master? Does this page protection stop User:Silver Master from editing their own talk page?

Seems unfortunate to me that the discussion has stopped, given the unfortunate imbroglio. Thanks, Nfitz (talk) 04:30, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

The settings and the reason are both recorded in the log. Beeblebrox (talk) 20:25, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Ah, thanks. Sorry, I missed something there, when I was looking. Hmm ... not really sure about "inappropriate use of user talk page while blocked". They have made only a single edit to their talk page since the day they were blocked. It was polite, positive in tone, and moving forward. Policy is that it should only be disabled in the case of continued abuse of the talk page. It's not clear there has been any abuse of the talk page ... though even if there has been, a single edit doesn't meet the criteria of continued. However, I also hadn't realized the length of the block ... so there's probably no point in debating it. Thanks again. Nfitz (talk) 05:35, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

RaRaRasputin's block for canvassing[edit]

Just wondering what canvassing RaRaRasputin did that you blocked him for. He appeared to think that it was based on this edit. Is that the one he was blocked for? I'm not sure I even understand the edit. The "mmm" part might refer to his block indirectly, if so I could understand the canvasing part. But I have no idea what the "February 2015" part was about or the rest of it. Just trying to understand. -Obsidi (talk) 21:25, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

That is indeed the edit, in which he is carefully not quite mentioning February 2015 Darayya chemical attack, a page covered by his topic ban. The block has just been extended to indefinite after an even more ridiculous unblock request. Beeblebrox (talk) 21:31, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

James Dale Ritchie[edit]

I thought you should know that it was confirmed today that James Dale Ritchie was in fact a serial killer. Police now say he killed 5. Most Alaskan websites have the story, ADN, KTUU, KTVA., etc. I believe you were working on an article, so I know you would appreciate getting this information.

@Beeblebrox and Michaelh2001: Ah yes, what a development! It was a bit of a gamble to write a draft simply because of the murder weapon, but it's finally wrapped!

  • Despite all the opposition, I would not be surprised to see it built. Expensive bridges have a habit of being built in Alaska. --Hammersoft (talk) 12:43, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

  1. Something for you to read. If you think I'm nuts don't hesitate to tell me.
  2. Are you going to Wikimania? I have 7 days left to decide whether or not I splash out $2,000 to go. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 00:28, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
Rather busy now, but I'll give it a read when I have time. Not going this year, applied for but didn't get a scholarship, but I have always heard that Montreal is a great city if that makes any difference. Beeblebrox (talk) 15:01, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
