Tarkattack strikes again[edit]

He's replaced similar content on his user page again. This time for some fake "Indonesian Soccer Championship" which was "established" in 2005 and only features participants in Europe. Not quite a "unique" contest for Indonesian regions only. Wes Mouse  10:56, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

@Wesley Mouse: Thank you for letting me know. Tarkattack has been given enough chances and I've now taken more decisive action against him. CT Cooper · talk 21:46, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
He is now engaging in sockpupperty. I received a notification telling me that Tarkspark had thanked me for this edit. New account created yesterday. The funny thing is, Tarkattack quacked about being known as Tarkspark on his own user page. Wes Mouse  16:27, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
You're not the only one. Using the thanks tool while blocked is, strictly speaking, a form of block evasion, and he's clearly using it try and get attention, so I'll be blocking this account shortly. I'll give him some slack though and leave the block on his master account as it is. CT Cooper · talk 17:50, 1 February 2016 (UTC)



I saw that you would be willing to nominate users to become an administrator. I'm fairly new to wikipedia, but have really been enjoying working on counter-vandalism. If you could nominate me, I'd really appreciate it.

@Schuddeboomw: I appreciate your enthusiasm but becoming an administrator is a long and difficult process – to be successful at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship (RfA), you'll need a substantial history of contributing to Wikipedia and a strong record of good judgement in contentious situations. For more information, I would suggest reviewing Wikipedia:Administrators, Wikipedia:What adminship is not, Wikipedia:Advice for RfA candidates, and Wikipedia:Guide to requests for adminship. I think for the time being you should simply continue editing and build-up experience. For example, DGG (talk · contribs) was right to decline your speedy deletion nomination for Harkenbäk and your talk page comment will only serve to get you stuck in a hole. I would suggest reviewing the Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion more carefully – misusing the criteria is enough on its own to sink an RfA and rightly so, as once you have the delete button, you'll be able to carry out speedy deletions without anyone else reviewing them. Please remember that there is a difference between an article deserving deletion and it deserving speedy deletion – please consider other options such as Wikipedia:Proposed deletion or Wikipedia:Articles for deletion as well. I hope this feedback is helpful and happy editing. CT Cooper · talk 19:11, 1 February 2016 (UTC)


Thank you for dealing with the AfD/redirect. I've never closed an AfD. Could you point me in the right direction for that? I should have been able to deal with that on my own! Thanks. John from Idegon (talk) 22:03, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

@John from Idegon: You're welcome. WP:AFDCLOSE is the main instruction page, which I used today, as I hadn't closed an AfD in years! Wikipedia:Deletion process covers the full procedure from nomination until closure. Most AfD closures are made by admins though there are situations where non-admin closures are potentially appropriate, such as with today's AfDWP:NACD is the official Wikipedia guideline on this with Wikipedia:Non-admin closure giving further details. I hope that helps. CT Cooper · talk 22:19, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
It does. Thanks. John from Idegon (talk) 00:52, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
