Welcome![edit]

Some cookies to welcome you! Face-smile.svg

Welcome to Wikipedia, Controlling! Thank you for your contributions. I see you are an experienced user on the German Wikipedia, but I thought I'd welcome you here to the English Wikipedia. :-)

I am Marek69 and I have been editing Wikipedia for some time, so if you have any questions feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. You can also check out Wikipedia:Questions or type {{help me}} at the bottom of this page. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that will automatically produce your username and the date. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

Thanks for the welcome and thanks for the cookies (any idea how to get them out of the computer)! Also, thanks for your help, this guy has been adding false info about twin cities on the German wikipedia for quite some time. Unfortunately, (s)he uses a host fo IP adresses... --Controlling (talk) 13:02, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Controlling, unfortunately stopping an IP hopping vandal is about as easy as getting cookies out of the computer and eating them! All we can do is hope they get bored and go away. You have been doing a great job in spotting them so far. If it is plainly obvious that the edits are bad faith then it helps if you leave a warning on their talk page, such as the {{uw-unsourced1}} template, to help other users identify them, and so an admin can block. You can also try to engage the IP in a discussion. This usually identifies bad faith quite quickly so that they can be blocked. I'm sorry that I don't have a better solution for you. If I think of something, I will be in touch. :-)
Kind Regards -- Marek.69 talk 09:09, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes Marek69, that sounds like a reasonable comparison. I've known this vandal for some time and messages on his talkpage always go unanswered. You're right though, it might be a good idea to leave such messages anyway to inform other editors (or I might just link to the documentation page - on the other hand I'm a little afraid that showing the vandal how much effort and thought we put into this might just motivate him...) Also, I've requested an edit filter (they are already in place on de, it and fr), but the responses on that page seem to be a little slow. Anyway, thanks for your support, it's always nice to know one's work is appreciated. --Controlling (talk) 09:17, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Re: Twin city vandalism / edit filter[edit]

Hello, unfortunately I wouldn't be the best person to action this request, because I have no experience working with edit filters (besides occasionally examining tagged edits). Perhaps try pinging Wikipedia talk:Edit filter, which seems to be far better watched than the requests page. Graham87 03:57, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
