Poorly created articles[edit]

Chris, I've stumbled across a load of articles that should not even have been created as they are clearly overkill of WP:NOTSTATSBOOK. Articles about [Country]'s voting in the Eurovision Song Contest. All of which have been created by Szonline88 (talk · contribs). I've tagged Azerbaijan's voting at the Eurovision Song Contest (WP:CSD#G2 and WP:CSD#A11) and Serbia's voting at the Eurovision Song Contest as WP:CSD#A10. But there are loads more like this. The full list is as follows.

I'll be tagged them all as #A10 of the CSD policy. Wes Mouse | T@lk 12:11, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

I've opted to go down the AfD route instead. Wes Mouse | T@lk 13:11, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

@Wesley Mouse: – Yeah, I think sending these to AfD is a good idea. Clearly these articles violate WP:NOTSTATSBOOK and the existing articles can cover anything substantive on a country's voting record. CT Cooper · talk 13:38, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
The AfD entry can be found here. There are other articles created by the same editor that are excessive listings of BLP's that have appeared on the cover of a magazine. I get the feeling this person is using Wikipedia as a personal "spreadsheet" for lists of data. Wes Mouse | T@lk 13:44, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
@Wesley Mouse: Thanks for the link. Yes, you could well be right. CT Cooper · talk 13:50, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

She's back, and IP hopping.[edit]

Our old friend Rebecca is definitely back with a vengeance. This is definitely her work (especially as she has a habit to "sing lyrics" on talk pages and edit summaries. 173.49.72.168 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) is definitely her though, as every edit that RebeccaTheAwesomeXD made and subsequently had reverted after the SPI, that very IP was right behind like a shadow on all the articles putting the edits back. And despite the fact she has been caught out socking multiple times since the second SPI, she is now expecting to be unblocked in December 2015. She's never going to learn, and her lies are digging her a bigger hole. And going off Rebecca's signature edit style and the articles she is known to "hang around", then 166.170.34.127 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) and 166.171.58.158 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) are suspicious, as they are editing the same articles in Rebecca's infamous style. Wes Mouse | T@lk 11:42, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

@Wesley Mouse: Hello Wes. Yes, I agree that she is almost certainly socking logged-out here. Kudpung (talk · contribs) has blocked the two main offending IPs – I'm leaving the third as one edit isn't much to go on. I have now reverted many of the offending edits, regardless of whether they were constructive or not, as is permissible under WP:BANREVERT. I've also semi-protected Eliias as the situation there was getting silly. CT Cooper · talk 15:59, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for that, Chris. It is now getting to the point were I am tired of her coming back and making more hard work for the community then is needed. As for Eliias, that article may soon be getting merged into Sweden in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2013, looking at the way the debate is going at AfD; and the same could happen to all JESC bios that didn't win the contest.
