Hi this user is continuing to troll on their user page after you blocked them. Sakuura Cartelet Talk 19:44, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Indef block of User:Mr. Nijwmsa Boro[edit]

Hi. I'm a sysop and 'crat on Incubator, and Mr. Nijwmsa Boro has applied to become a test administrator there. Would you mind sharing with me why he was indeffed? It seems like it was a checkuser issue, but I need to know if this will be a problem. You can reply here. Thanks. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:30, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Of course, the decision is up to you, but I wouldn't recommend giving any permissions to them. They have a history of creating many sockpuppet accounts to create numerous unencyclopedic articles here. See Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Niezwmxa Boro/Archive for some of the evidence. Cheers ​—DoRD (talk)​ 14:50, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
I should add that they consistently fail to communicate when approached about their editing problems. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 15:20, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
That was helpful. Thanks. I more or less told him "not yet, and beyond that you'll have to convince me". I suggested he continue to create content. (See incubator:I:RFTA.) Part of the problem is that none of us actually read Bodo, so we have little way to judge whether the content itself is legitimate or encyclopedic. But at least I can try to start looking for patterns of behavior a little. Again, thanks. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:44, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
StevenJ81, I was just following up with this and saw the Meta request for a new language project. The wording of the request seemed to be far above his usual English writing level, and to little surprise, I found that it was lifted wholesale from indianetzone.com/44/bodo_language.htm. Besides the other issues, copyright isn't a very strong point of his, either. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 23:55, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Hey, uh ... was this just trolling?[edit]

I get weirded out when edits to my talk page get suppressed while I'm asleep, so I'm curious. Hijiri 88 (やや) 22:45, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Yes, it was some inappropriate trolling, but that's about all I can say about it. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 22:48, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Blocked IP address[edit]

DoRD, I noticed that you blocked an Amazon based IP editor not long ago, [[2]]. I've noticed that a large number of articles I've been involved with over the years were all of a sudden bothered by a series of Amazon IP editor starting in late 2016. I believe the editor behind the IP addresses is user HughD who was blocked for 6 months in June. I presented evidence that this was block evasion last December. Initially the evidence was inconclusive since we couldn't use checkuser on an IP address (the original IPs were all Chicago area based, then they switched to Amazon based). Later a number of the comments and phrasing were very similar to statements made by HughD. I've presented information here [[3]] and here [[4]]. I would be interested in knowing why you decided to block that Amazon IP. Thanks, Springee (talk) 02:40, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

I blocked that entire range of addresses (52.60.0.0/16) because it is a web hosting range that can be used like an open proxy, and because the range was being abused by a troll (unrelated to the HughD case). ​—DoRD (talk)​ 12:30, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

McAusten sock[edit]

You blocked this user last week Special:Contributions/Fairy_Hills. This person (originally User:McAusten) has been vandalising the same talk page for six years, this is probably yet another Special:Contributions/Soup_Führer — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.171.214.167 (talk) 09:40, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

The obvious sockpuppet of someone is now blocked. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 12:45, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
