Hi, I'm an administrator here, and have been since 2007. I'll try to answer any questions here as soon as I can, though I do have periods where I'm not available. For admins: if you think I've done something really f***ing stupid and I don't respond to a question about it, please feel free to reverse it ... we can work it out later on.
It is not your opinion to tell me what to do. You are not an admin either. I never added J.D. Gibbs after that. I only added Mason Lowe. Pretty soon it will be notable to add Mason Lowe or not. Matt Campbell (talk) 01:19, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
I don't think I saw the rules. Is there a page on it? Matt Campbell (talk) 01:29, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
Does the Wikipedia:In the news/candidates article count? Because they post notable deaths on there as well. Matt Campbell (talk) 16:50, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
A /22 is 1024 addresses, but I see no evidence from this that the person has access to more than 2 IP addresses. --Money money tickle parsnip (talk) 00:06, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
I would also add that it is bizarre that the person actively asked to be range blocked. My very strong suspicion is that they are trying to disrupt somebody else's bona fide editing -- likely a logged-in user who would not show up in the IP contributions. For this reason, unless you administrators know of some considerations that I am not aware of, it would seem better to me to release the range block and block only the two identifiable IPs concerned. --Money money tickle parsnip (talk) 00:17, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Ah okay, I see that the block says "anon only". I'm less bothered about it now -- but even so, I still don't think that edits from 2 IP addresses is strong evidence that they have wider access to the subnet. --Money money tickle parsnip (talk) 00:29, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
