Deletion discussion about Pointy[edit]

Hello, Ciphers,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Pointy should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pointy .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks,

Speedy deletion nomination of Ovzon[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Ovzon, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which pages can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Per MOS:REFPUNCT, please do not place any space between the period at the end of a sentence and the footnote for it. DMacks (talk) 14:11, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for the warm welcome, and the note, DMacks. Also, thank you for noticing the error in my spacing, are there any specific articles you'd like me to clean up or correct? The thing is, I do a lot of editing on my phone, so sometimes (due to the disproportional size of my fingers versus the phone keyboard) I make some mistakes (I think some of them are due to some weird browser compatibility, as well). That said, I'll try to pay more attention moving forward, and please don't hesitate to reach out in case you noticed anything else. Best regards --Ciphers (talk) 20:59, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

[:user:Ponyo, check your French Wikipedia page. I sent you a letter there. thanks bud :) --Ciphers (talk) 07:35, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
Your talk page has never been disabled, so your question makes no sense with this account. Your sockpuppet is locked, but neither Ponyo or I can unlock it. TonyBallioni (talk) 13:01, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
talk:TonyBallioni|talk, I'm sorry?? I must have been hearing this wrong )o 88888 are you sure, you know that youu're talking to me? ., youkno,w, cause I don't see my other accounts unblocked yet, and I'm pretty that sure your "other" account is still locked too, if you know what I'm talking apout ... so, I'd really like to know -now, actually, what's going on with you madam admin? ... :/ --Ciphers (talk) 14:03, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
I will explain what is going on then:
  • You asked Ponyo to unlock this account so you could respond: you are able to edit your talk page to communicate with us. We are not able to unlock Clarities as neither of us are stewards.
  • We have both reviewed the CheckUser data for this account, and come to the conclusion that you and Clarities are the same person. The evidence for this is quite strong technically and behaviorally. As a former CheckUser you should know that a block of someone who was a CheckUser on another project would not be taken lightly.
  • At this time, I have no intent of lifting the block on either this or the Clarites account unless you have a very good explanation. For a CheckUser to abuse community trust like this across multiple projects by creating a badhand sock account is unconscionable. You are of course free to follow the instructions below and request another CheckUser or ArbCom review my conclusions.
  • Also, if it wasn’t already clear: you are now directly blocked by me indefinitely as a CheckUser block rather than autoblocked.
I hope this clarifies things for you. TonyBallioni (talk) 14:27, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
it does not, actually. I really don't understand the difference between IP block and blocking two accounts just because they start the the same letter from a different case, do you know what I mean? I mean If you block my account here, which is something I understand, why Can't I edit my talk page on enwp still?

Thank you for understanding, and look forward your response soon. Seriously, thank you Tony. --Ciphers (talk) 20:30, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

When Clarities was blocked this triggered an autoblock which prevented you from editing as you used the same IP as them. This was an underlying block of your IP, not the account itself.
We later determined that the autoblock was working as intended as Clarities is also your account, and this has been documented at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Ciphers. Since you vandalized with it and as a (then) CheckUser on another project the policy on abusing multiple accounts should be clear to you, you have now been blocked by me as a CheckUser block. This means you are unable to edit any page on the English Wikipedia other than this page, and that if you create a new account and start editing with it in the future, it will be blocked as well.
You are able to edit your en.wiki talk page on the Ciphers account (evidenced by the fact that you are editing it now). You arenot able to edit it on Clarities because a steward has globally locked the account. Local sysops cannot remove the global lock.
Your block on this account may be appealed either by copying the template below or emailing the Arbitration Committee for the English Wikipedia. The instructions on how to do so are found below.
If you have any additional questions, please let me know by replying here. TonyBallioni (talk) 20:45, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
That's super clear, actually. but; I do have a question for you, as a matter of fact. Why do you italicize your ares and notes quite often? is that because you try to deliver a stronger sound message to me? or is it because you like to do my eyelashes more often than before ... you know what I'm talking about, right 
) ? again, just curious :) --Ciphers (talk) 22:28, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
  • This has veered off into outright trolling, so talk page access has been revoked (for real this time!). WP:UTRS is available if you would like to appeal.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:30, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
Stop hand
Your ability to edit this talk page has been revoked as an administrator has identified your talk page edits as inappropriate and/or disruptive.

(block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblockcheckuser (log))


If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you should read the guide to appealing blocks, then contact administrators by submitting a request to the Unblock Ticket Request System. If the block is a CheckUser or Oversight block, was made by the Arbitration Committee or to enforce an arbitration decision (arbitration enforcement), or is unsuitable for public discussion, you should appeal to the Arbitration Committee.
Please note that there could be appeals to the unblock ticket request system that have been declined leading to the post of this notice.
