IP making massive edits on refdesks, inserting comments with other signatures[edit]

Hi, you blocked this IP yesterday, from the edit summary and content of this edit it looks like they're back under another address. DuncanHill (talk) 09:35, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

A bit late but thanks for the notification. That's just Vote (X) for Change (talk · contribs) up to their usual disruption. Elockid(BOO!) 23:19, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

User linked to sockpuppets ranged block[edit]

Hello, The recent vandalism done by User: on multiple talk pages (including yours) are disturbing, thus should be removed or made inaccessable permanenlty from these pages' edit histories. Also based on those edits, I think they are linked to those sockpuppets whom you blocked last week, as they both have similar language and targets. (talk) 22:09, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

PS: Im reposting this from my mobile as the computer which I first posted from had the same IP address as a user whom recently vandalized had, since this is a wifi zone where many IPs are shared and devices may use different IPs at a given time. (talk) 22:23, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
I'll keep an eye on the situation and apply any additional blocks if necessary. Thanks for letting me know. Elockid(BOO!) 23:24, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Changed protection level of Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents[edit]

Elockid, please, i've been typing for almost an hour to add my last message in that page section where i was talking about a misuse i've undergone, you've changed the protection level so that i can't keep discussing, you're free to check that i'm not a troll or something like that, i've always been polite, never offensive, but now i can't add my last message, which is very important to me because it's about a range block extension which originally had to end in about half day but risks to continue for 2 weeks, already 4 users said it was right to tear it up, this setback's the last thing i need right now, i know you're having problem for sock puppetry but might you please find a solution for me? couldn't you for example restore the protection level for a minute, in order to give me the time to add my message, or write that message yourself since you're an admin, or allow me to edit that discussion, or do whatever else? please, don't ignore my request answer as soon as possible! the section i'm talking about is: Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Collateral_damage_from_rangeblock Centocinquantuno (talk) 19:59, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

@Centocinquantuno:, I've given your account confirmed status. This will allow you to continue editing. Apologies for the inconvenience. Elockid Message me 20:13, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
thank you so much, you're great!

Unblock request on hold[edit]

Can you have a look at the unblock request at User talk:Faibbus? It relates to a range block which you have imposed. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 13:25, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

There have been multiple proxies used by this range. They're in the CU logs and I believe listed in filter 464. I can't posts specifics right now since I don't have access to either. But the range is allocated to OVH. They do have an range for non-hosting customers but most of their ranges are for webhosting. The proxies that are evident with that range leads me to believe that this is a hosting range. ElofoSho (talk) 16:01, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
Here's some examples: 2001:41D0:8:B330:0:0:0:1 (talk · contribs), 2001:41D0:1:8E70:0:0:0:0 (talk · contribs), 2001:41D0:8:6A40:0:0:0:1 (talk · contribs), 2001:41D0:2:BF1C:C35F:E5F6:161D:D99A (talk · contribs). There's quite a bit of socking, I know at least one is known to use proxies/anonymizing services. Looks like classic behavior for OVH hosting. Elockid Message me 12:30, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

Block evasion by whom[edit]

If you blocked my previous IP, then you should also mention there in the post. Block evasion by which user. You very well know that I am not Babitaarora because you are a Check User, isn't it? Trust me your CU tools are becoming Obsolete.

And please end the suspense of this case

It's on hold for a long time. -- (talk) 13:40, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

I very well know who you are. You have consistently engaged in constant sexual harassment towards another user (I know which sockpuppet accounts they are) and have disrupted this encyclopedia while pretending to make "good" edits. Per the privacy policy, I can't disclose who you are. ElofoSho (talk) 15:56, 9 November 2015 (UTC)


Hello. Are you having a good day? -- (talk) 02:32, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I am. Thank you for asking. Elockid Message me 03:25, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of banned user's comments[edit]

If you are going to do a mass deletion, please include the reason in the edit summary, and preferably a link that shows they are banned. StuRat (talk) 18:58, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

It's stated in the block reasoning who the banned user is (That's Vote (X) for Change (talk · contribs)). Also, these edits were already identified that it was a banned editor. Elockid Message me 19:02, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
I recommend a 1-month semi-protection of ANI & any other page he/she appears on. GoodDay (talk) 23:29, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
Wish I could do that. But ANI and some of the pages they're editing (mostly the Reference desks) can have quite a bit of anon traffic. I don't think a month protection would fit well with others. Elockid Message me 23:33, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
At the rate that "Vote (X)" is going, that page will be virtually semi-protected on a daily basis. GoodDay (talk) 23:39, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
I suppose maybe a discussion on ANI if it's alright with everyone to have a longer protection. I'll start a discussion on ANI some time later today or tomorrow. About to log off. Elockid Message me 23:49, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

SPI question[edit]

Hello, earlier today you declined an autoblock removal here. Is this something that I should file an SPI report about? There is some other evidence that has me wondering. /wia /tlk 03:20, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Unless you suspect that there are other socks, a tag on the sock account should be sufficient. Elockid Message me 03:22, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of urban areas by population, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Huangyan, São Luís and Lanxi (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:12, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Orangemoody[edit]

I think I made some kind of mess. I history-merged Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Xenoradixde into Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Orangemoody. But, since the two pages were edited in the same period, the page history is now a mix of revisions of Xenoradixde and Orangemoody pages. Should I leave it like that, or is there some solution? Vanjagenije (talk) 17:56, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

I see you what you mean. I suppose we could leave it as is. I don't foresee much harm. Though if you're willing to undo everything, I do have a possible solution. Hopefully it's not tedious and overly complicated, but you could delete the page and specifically restore the revisions for each case. What I mean is that when you delete the page, you restore the revisions for Xenoradixde and move it back to the Xenoradixde case. Then restore revisions for the Orangemoody case. Then just copy paste everything over from Xenoradixde's case to Orangemoody's. Elockid Message me 18:27, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Hm... But then, we would not have the whole history in one place. In that case, I think the present situation is better. At least everything is in the same place. Vanjagenije (talk) 18:47, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

ACC awaits you Face-wink.svg[edit]

Hello! Can you please jump into ACC for a second and look at request #156348? Thanks—UY Scuti Talk 04:34, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

New section[edit]

Steve Jobs page reference need editing. There's a lost source link for the biological father's information from a news article. Here's the cache: — Preceding unsigned comment added by OMolokaiO (talkcontribs)

ANI and Vote (X) for Change[edit]

Personally, I think ANI should be indefinitely semi'd instead of temporarily semi'd. I feel that the protection expiries are just a "wake-up alarm" for Vote (X) for Change to resume disruption. So, rather than continuing to waste time with him at ANI, you should protect ANI indefinitely. ElectricBurst(Electron firings)(Zaps) 21:16, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

There isn't consensus to do so at this moment. If it changes, then I can implement it. Elockid Message me 21:17, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
OK but the suggestion may have been that if a page is protected for, say, for 48 hours, the user knows to troll elsewhere and resume here in 48 hours. If the page were protected indefinitely it could be manually unprotected 50 hours later without giving the invitation to return at a particular date/time. I know that would have difficulties with activists wanting to oppose an indefinite protection even if the plan was explained. In much the same way, the refdesk problems would be alleviated if participants there won't so eager to restore posts that others had removed. Johnuniq (talk) 22:43, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
I'll try a longer protection next time with a message to unprotect anytime for ANI. Elockid Message me 00:49, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Your block of the Wrapper Wreckers sockfarm[edit]

I was keeping my eye on this waiting for the first sign of underhandedness. Should I just ask for a preemptive block in the future? Meters (talk) 18:23, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Yeah you can just report them. These are socks of MascotGuy. Elockid Message me 20:32, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll know who it is next time. Meters (talk) 21:31, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Bell Canada Rangeblock[edit]

Hello, Just a few days ago, I was blocked from editing using my 3G network as a range block had been enforced by yourself. As this IP address's domain is of the cellular service Bell Canada, these IP addresses are therefore dynamic and change frequenlty with cellular users. Meaning that someone can easily change their IP address either by moving to different locations or even by consistenly rebooting their phones. Therefore is there a way to pinpoint the person behind these vandalism attacks and block him/her directly, rather than blocking a range of addresses (meaning every one from Bell Canada) for editing Wikipedia? Its ridiculous that there are only a few vandals whom are ruining it for a large group of people. (talk) 07:03, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
