Nazi trolls[edit]

I don't know what prompted you to check, but one of the accounts spewing Nazi-conspiracies on Barbara Lerner Spectre is from that range. If there's anything you can do, anything I don't know anything about, go for it. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 02:09, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Drmies, check your inbox.

Just a brief note to inform you, as the admin who blocked RakiaLittle, that they (i.e. their sockmaster) are apparently asking for forgiveness on User talk:RakiaLittle. IntoThinAir (formerly Everymorning) talk 21:46, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

He hasn't filed an unblock request but I'll also note that he was trying to dictate terms to us just a few weeks ago so I'm not sure that he is ready anyway.

Apollo The Logician[edit]

Hi. I recently opened a sockpuppet investigation for an IP range and a dynamic IP that have the same edit pattern of Apollo The Logician. I thought you might be interested in taking a look at their contributions. --Jamez42 (talk) 23:40, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

UTRS appeal #22606[edit]

Orologio blu.svg
A user you have blocked has opened UTRS appeal #22606 on the Unblock Ticket Request System. The reviewing administrator, 5 albert square (talk · contribs), has requested your input: (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblockcheckuser (log))

Time: Sep 09, 2018 17:56:01

Message: Can you advise on this please? It just says CU block so I'm a little unsure. Is this a CU block for the sockpuppet that used this range back in 2015? Can I do anything for this user?


  • If you do not have an account on UTRS, you may create one at the administrator registration interface.
  • Alternatively, you can respond here and indicate whether you are supportive or opposed to an unblock for this user and your rationale, if applicable.

Amanda and 5 albert square, this report is completely false which explains why UTRS gets fed bad info for the underlying blocking admin on many reports. According to that, I made a checkuser block back in 2015 even though I wasn't a checkuser. Here is the real block log where it shows that my last rangeblock was to expire in 2016 and the first checkuser block was made by KrakatoaKatie. I've never seen into that range with the CU tool. I identified this bug back in July and filed at phabricator. That bug has affected us since 2014.

Sorry that's my bad. I looked at the block log, and idk how I got your name in it. @KrakatoaKatie: instead. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 22:57, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
No worries. :)
 — Berean Hunter (talk) 22:58, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
@5 albert square: Yes, this is for the sockmaster you've referenced. I think you can safely send them to ACC. Katietalk 00:49, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks KrakatoaKatie :)--5 albert square (talk) 14:05, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

I tried to edit without logging in[edit]

I tried to do a quick edit this morning but it appears that you have blocked me.

Could you give me an explanation for this?

Best wishes

Without your IP address, no.

Hey, Why do you have blocked my IP? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:25, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

If you were blocked, you wouldn't be able to post here.

Sorry to bother you, Berean Hunter but I have a question regarding adminstrators[edit]

I have been on Wikipedia for a long time and editing articles anonymously and not logged in while editing. I have been thinking about becoming an administrator but I cannot find a simple guide on becoming one. What are the benefits of being an admin and how do you block users (not that I want to block anybody without good reason, but I want to make Wikipedia a safe and better place.) Also, how long does it take to be an administrator and where can I sign up after I create an account? I would like to work in the UTRS as well.

Thanking you, Dan Commins. (talk) 19:40, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Step one is to have an account. From that, you can gain experience but it will take time. Don't try to sign up after getting an account as that would be shot down immediately. Becoming an admin shouldn't really be a primary goal.

You sended a message I can not find[edit]

Hello Beran Hunter I received an info that you contacted me on my talk page - but I see nothing. I am reverting at this time in the article The Bang Bang Club (film) chances by a new editor. Now I see that you in the Revision history did a rollback. Best.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 05:48, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello Maxim Pouska, in addition to the revert on that article, I also removed an LTA sockpuppet's comments to your talk page to deny him recognition.
 — Berean Hunter (talk) 12:41, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
Hello User:Berean Hunter Thanks, I thought it was a sock puppet too. I am planning to edit again more in all the articles around the Bang Bang Club - speciel Kevin Carter and The vulture and the little girl starting in Decembre or January. I did the research last year allredy. Best--Maxim Pouska (talk) 14:41, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
