Blocked[edit]

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for abusing multiple accounts, violating terms of your unblocking. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

Request reason:

I don't know what I've done wrong.

Decline reason:

User talk:Dodgechris/archive#Unblocked says, my condition of unblocking you is that you are limited to using this single account. You didn't adhere to this condition; hence, you were reblocked. --jpgordon::==( o ) 19:45, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

What's your relationship with User:Mysandboxaccount? --jpgordon::==( o ) 20:28, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
It's the account I use for testing because I don't want to clog up my edit history. Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 20:29, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Is there some part of you are limited to using this single account that is in some way ambiguous or vague? --jpgordon::==( o ) 20:45, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
I didn't think creating an account that was not used to edit mainspace Wikipedia and just userspace would matter. My block is not necessary because, as per WP:BLOCK, blocks are to protect Wikipedia from disruption - I wasn't causing any disruption. Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 20:49, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Looking through the edits of his sandbox account, they are all in user space and they are all being used to improve wikipedia. I can vouch that Chris has been doing good work on wikipedia since he was unblocked, at least from his main account. Is there evidence that any other accounts have been used to edit main space since the unblock? If not then I think an indefinite block is too harsh, and that Chris should just be told to confine all his userspace edits to this account in future.GunGagdinMoan 00:24, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
Again: "Is there some part of you are limited to using this single account that is in some way ambiguous or vague?" This user has a severe history of abusing multiple accounts and removing the old block was completely contingent upon him not repeating old behavior. While he hasn't edited disruptively yet, considering his history I don't think it's much of a stretch to imagine he "tested the waters" with this new account in order to ascertain the likelyhood of him being caught socking. I know we're supposed to assume good faith, but this user has been very sneaky in the past and he should have known that his editing was restricted to one account - no exceptions. He should have known this because it was made quite clear when he was unblocked. Noformation Talk 08:56, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
I understood that I was not to edit under any other account, but I didn't think that included an account completely dedicated to editing userspace. It is definitely clear now that I am not to edit with any other account under any circumstances. In future I will save articles I am writing to Microsoft Word and preview them in Wikipedia, rather than saving it in an alternate accounts userspace.

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────What about Huzunited (talk · contribs) and Ctorrance111 (talk · contribs)? You were operating those accounts as well. TNXMan 11:16, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Nope Huzunited is my friends account and Ctorrance111 was made by my friend in my name ages ago. Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 11:20, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

I cant believe I've been blocked again, it's really frustrating especially since I've hardly done anything wrong :S Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 15:24, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Request reason:

Yes but that was a good three years before I was unblocked - since then I haven't abused the unblock conditions.

Decline reason:

If you haven't abused the unblock conditions since, I'm confused why checkusers are coming up with an ever-growing list of other accounts that have been used from your computer. The explanations you give for these are straining the limits of my good faith as well. I've two more accounts to add, by the way: explain User:SpideyFan09 and User:Wuzzupbob.

Those accounts were discussed and things were settled before I was unblocked last month. Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 15:31, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Dodgechris, surely you must have known it was a bad idea to create another account. I mean seriously, after all the work you had to do in order to return. I would point out some of these guys are pulling up old accounts and claiming them as part of an ever growing list... not that it really matters.RaintheOne BAM 15:52, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
What do you mean by "not that it really matters"? Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 15:56, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

I think a temporary ban of a week or two would suffice instead of an indefinite ban, so he learns a lesson, but is not completely alienated. I dont understand DC's desire to open all these accounts, especially as most of them contain no edits, but regardless, the fact remains that none made since his unblock have been used for vandalism from what I can see; predicting that they will be used for vandalism in the future is penalising for something that has not happened. The editor has been showing that he wants to make valid contributions to wikipedia; I genuinely think this should be considered here, otherwise we are likely to push him down that route by being overly harsh, which would be a headache for everyone and entirely avoidable. I suggest that he continues to be monitored; any other accounts opened from henceforth will not be tolerated regardless of their purpose and will result in a permanent ban, without the option to appeal.GunGagdinMoan 17:01, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Please note that Huzunited and Ctorrance111 aren't actually me. Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 17:08, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
The Huzunited account looks pretty weird Chris I have to say as an unblock was requested on it yesterday, and you surely must be aware how many times admins have heard "it wasn't me it was my friend/brother" excuse. see WP:BRO.GunGagdinMoan 17:14, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, but assuming I am telling the truth - how am I supposed to convince them that? Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 17:17, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
I dont think you can prove it. Your best bet is to show evidence of any good work you have been doing since you were unblocked, and also show what you were using the sandbox account for. Diffs of improvement may help, so that admins can see you've been making valuable contributions. I suppose all you can do is hope that other users will believe that you being blocked would be a an overall loss to the project. Once bitten, twice shy. They are being cautious and that's understandable given your history.GunGagdinMoan 17:26, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
I think it's the Huzunited and Ctorrance111 account that they are more bothered about, not the sandbox. Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 17:28, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Request reason:

I think my block should be reviewed again. Refer to the above discussion. Here are links to some of the improvements I have made to Wikipedia: [1] [2] [3] [4]

Decline reason:

After being repeatedly blocked for abusing multiple accounts, starting over three years ago, then continuing to abuse multiple accounts, then being unblocked on the condition that you use only one account, when you used another account you had gone past the end. Any pleas of "yes, but I didn't think it counted because..." or "yes but he didn't use the account disruptively" might have carried weight under different circumstances, but as it is, enough is enough.

Request reason:

I have caused no disruption whatsoever since I was unblocked last month. Please give me a chance to get reinstated once again on Wikipedia. If I am unblocked, I will take what has happened into account and limit myself to this account only, which means I won't make extra accounts used like I have used them before (from sockpuppets to sandboxes). If not, I can assure you that you haven't seen the last of me.

Decline reason:

No. As user Noformation says below, threatening to break the encyclopedias rules if we don't comply with what you want shows that you haven't changed. For that reason the unblock request is declined and I'm now going to revoke access to your talk page too. 5 albert square (talk) 22:30, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

"If not, I can assure you that you haven't seen the last of me." You pretty much just guaranteed that you'll be blocked indefinitely. Threatening to break our rules if we don't do what you want shows that you haven't changed a bit. I concur with the last blocking admin that talk page access should be revoked as well. Noformation Talk 20:41, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
I respect users like Frickative and Gungadin because they welcome me to Wikipedia on the condition that I edit constructively. Quite frankly, I hold little respect for some of the admins here who indef block good users who break the rules slightly. Therefore, they are holding the project back. I am just stressing my personal opinion and don't mean to be nasty in any way. Based on what you've said, Noinformation, do you think there is any way forward? What would you suggest I do next? Dodgechris (talkcontributions) 20:44, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
  • [After receiving email:] Given what's here on this talk page, and despite the claim that you've "hardly done anything wrong", I don't think there is anything that I can or want to do. You can email one of the blocking admins, or one of the ones who denied to unblock. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 19:35, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Also after receiving email: one would think Dodgechris would, after this, have the sense to stop socking, but apparently not; at the same time he's begging via email to be unblocked, he's creating new accounts such as User:GrahamCrusty and User:Yoogeeoh. I'm cutting off access to email; this is now becoming simply abusive behavior. --jpgordon::==( o ) 14:55, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
And now he's also created User:DodgechrisWithaQuestion. What can you say? --Orange Mike | Talk 20:04, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
That one was created in response to the blocking of Tellow (talk · contribs). Same unblock requests; although he's threatening to create more throw-away accounts. Kuru (talk) 20:57, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
