Request of Removal Last Sanction

I'm looking to remove the last sanction (number one) from here. eurodyne (talk) 05:02, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

 Approved as we have talked. -- DQ mobile (ʞlɐʇ) 04:38, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

User:Gurumayum Arvind

Hi DeltaQuad. You recently blocked a number of socks of Gurumayum Arvind. I think they might be at it again as Special:Contributions/ The articles edited are the same and the same edits are being made. Seems like WP:DUCK to me, so I 'd appreciate it if you take a look. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 10:27, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi again DeltaQuad. Just want to let you know that was blocked by Drmies and another sock was blocked by CactusWriter. There, however, appears to be a new possible "duck" Special:Contributions/ who is bascially editing the same articles and making the same types of edits. -- Marchjuly (talk) 13:03, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
DQ, will you do a rangeblock for under $10? Drmies (talk) 15:30, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

SPI training

Hi Amanda, seems like we've lost our leader. Vanja is frustrated because apparently you haven't contributed to the training discussion since January 2. Frankly, I don't know what to do as I think of myself as a tag-along in the first instance. I don't particularly want to take charge, but we can't leave all the trainees in the lurch, either. Based on your comment about e-mail backlog, it sounds like you have limited time, but if you can't manage to do this in the foreseeable future for whatever reason (not prying), it'd be nice to at least know that. Thanks.--Bbb23 (talk) 22:06, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

I have replied at the talk. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 22:43, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

User:Joseph Prasad

You recently indeffed this user's account for block evasion as a result of an SPI. I'd like to suggest the possibility of removing talk and user page access, as well (and possibly email user capability). He's asking editors (by pinging them) to proxy edit for him. He is now also editing again as the IP reported in the latest SPI -- just at his talk page (so far), but using it, nonetheless. That tells me he has impunity for policy and no intention to leave Wikipedia at all (but maybe it's just me who sees it that way). I warned him about asking editors to edit for him at his talk page, he blanked it and then edited as IP Talk page history here. -- WV 01:46, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

@Winkelvi: Dealt with, except the email block. I have to have actual abuse of that to turn that function off. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 03:53, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

WP:RFU question

Bonjour! Do you know how often User:DeltaQuad/UTRS Appeals is set to update? I haven't seen any change since early this morning. --Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:31, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

  • DQB has continued clerking UAA, so I'm not sure if it's again an issue with being desynced from Labs? Maybe it can't login to UTRS right now? In any case there are currently no open UTRS cases... maybe... it updates only when there are new cases? Dunno  · Salvidrim! ·  00:11, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
There were new cases which didn't display, but I closed them. The two that are showing now were taken care of by the time I logged in this morning. --Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 00:13, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Every 20 minutes. It appears my switch over to OAuth failed and it was requesting my password to edit. I'll try and find the fix in the next few days. Also UTRS actions run on a separate server than the rest of DeltaQuadBot. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 05:16, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Open the pod bay doors HAL...--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 06:06, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Unfortunately it's been down for days. I've commented the template out, please revert at will when it's back up. Cheers,--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 18:55, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
  • @Ponyo: That's probably my own fault. I forgot Tool Labs != UTRS and that I have to make the adjustments over there too. I'll get to those later today, and then it should run for a long time without bugging out again. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 15:48, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

This block

I've noticed that you blocked this IP for a decade. Any reason for the unusually lengthy block? -- I dream of horses  If you reply here, please ping me by adding {{U|I dream of horses}} to your message  (talk to me) (My edits) @ 06:11, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
