User:Oshwah, unblock pls. -- zzuuzz (talk) 08:32, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

ACK! Sorry! I was trying to block another IP user and accidentally clicked on your username instead. Please accept my apologies for the mistake. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 08:34, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, wrote that email too fast. It was on AN, and looks like it is good now. zchrykng (talk) 20:16, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Please delete the n word report[edit]

it might offend people and that is just what the troll wants.PZQ (talk) 00:52, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Inappropriate (illegal content) username spotted[edit]

Hello (From France)

I spotted a user with inappropriate username (apology to nazism).

Please oversight this username and block indefinitely (and has vandalized in Fr Wiki)

 Done thanks. For future reference you can also report such usernames to WP:UAA. -- zzuuzz (talk) 17:13, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
I added my report in WP:UAA. -- (talk) 17:28, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
No sense in doing so when that user has already been blocked. IanDBeacon (talk) 17:35, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Sigh... more fun I guess...[edit]

It's pretty much at the point where I can't even understand what the edits are even saying anymore..... lol ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 06:03, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

It makes you wonder if oversight should be used. Or lengthy protection. -- zzuuzz (talk) 06:09, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
Ugh, I know... there's unfortunately no silver bullet right now that will both stop the abuse completely and let all other anonymous users contribute to these reference desk pages as usual. The AbuseFilter is doing very well at dragging the rate of attacks down with the throttle currently set. The unfortunate part is that each disallowed edit generates an AbuseFilter log each time it happens, and there's no tool to suppress multiple abuse filter logs like we can when we rev del multiple edits and logs. We get to suppress each filter.... one.... by.... one. My thumb and pinky finger is getting tired with all of the tabbing and hotkeys I'm using to try and get them done in a somewhat trot-like pace... haha ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 07:16, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
Perhaps it's not necessary to delete the ones which don't even make sense. And edits like this. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:22, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
I guess it's probably already know by those dealing with it since as you would expect, they've made sure to tell us, but at least some of their edits which look to be a nonsense jumble of letters are ROT13. Nil Einne (talk) 17:25, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Blocked proxies[edit]

Sorry for what is no doubt a stupid question, but after making that reversion on Wikipedia:Reference desk/Mathematics, where should I have reported it? "Blocked Proxy" doesn't seem to fall under either AIV or SPI. Thegreatluigi (talk) 06:19, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

As it's a long term repeat vandal on a rampage, AIV (without warnings) would be appropriate. However for a slower more nuanced block, WP:OP can be used for open proxies. -- zzuuzz (talk) 06:27, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
Oh I'm definitely hitting them with open proxy blocks just as you are. I'm just trying to keep up with all of the edits and abuse filter logs that need suppression and what-not... :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 06:32, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Thank you. I just wasn't sure AIV was suitable since none of the four "reasons" you can give for the report quite seemed to fit. Thegreatluigi (talk) 06:36, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Unprotected talk page[edit]

I see the Nazi troll has struck again. Thank you for removing. But I'm curious to know if the garbage was directed at me, or at other users? Or both? ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 13:01, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

ISTR it was mostly random, but you'd need to ask an oversighter for more info. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:20, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
OK. Not worth the trouble. Sometimes I catch some of that stuff before it gets deleted. It's definitely worth deleting. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 13:45, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
@Baseball Bugs: I don't have access to such material but I know that some of the people named on my page were not me. I don't know if I was named there since I didn't see all of it, but I know I have been named in other sprees of theirs. I think pretty much anyone who regularly contributes to the RD has been named somewhere and actually they've gone further as one of their recent target's sole contribution was a reversal of their nonsense so I'm guessing they're now just farming the name of any contributors to any of the desks.

Please revoke talk-page access for Tvso1107. (I am not watching this page, so please ping me if you want my attention.) wumbolo ^^^ 21:17, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your swift action in reverting the vandalism on my talk page. --Viennese Waltz 09:54, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Another one[edit]

Are the edits by more of those edits that should be removed? You have already blocked them.. Dmcq (talk) 22:50, 9 November 2018 (UTC)[edit]

Could you please hide the lewd photos posted by user: Thank you. CLCStudent (talk) 16:24, 10 November 2018 (UTC)


Thanks. If I may ask, did you do something to whitelist my current IP address, or what? -- (talk) 23:40, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello. Of course you can ask :) It's a relatively fluid situation and we'll do what we can when we can to facilitate normal editing. -- zzuuzz (talk) 02:53, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

DragonOfShanghai block?[edit]

I'm curious about this block. Was there a WP:SPI that went with that? -- RoySmith (talk) 15:55, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello, no there wasn't an SPI. I could probably provide an investigation if pressed, but I'd initially prefer to just point accusingly at Huff slush7264. -- zzuuzz (talk) 16:05, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I only asked because of Special:diff/867315401. I've been trying to figure out why a brand-new user would give somebody a barnstar as virtually the first edit they've made unless there was some connection between them. -- RoySmith (talk) 19:34, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Administrator Barnstar Hires.png The Admin's Barnstar
I see what you did, yet again--thank you. Drmies (talk) 18:46, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks Doc. I know you don't miss much. If you don't mind I delegate this barnstar to Theinstantmatrix, Thegreatluigi, LakesideMiners, Abelmoschus Esculentus, CLCStudent, and several others who have been helping out take out the trash. I hear we're looking for admins you guys ;) -- zzuuzz (talk) 22:01, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

zzuuzz, Aww, Thanks! I don't think I am ready enough to be an admin yet tho, still dont have alot of experence outside of vandle fighting. Mabey in one or two years tho(and when my spelling gets better ;). LakesideMinersMy Talk Page 22:15, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

You're on roll![edit]

but if you need a change of scenery, there's a party going on at the old barn. Favonian (talk) 20:43, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

All accounted for. Shall we leave it open a short time? -- zzuuzz (talk) 20:57, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Sure. He tends to come back like a bad penny. Thanks again, espcially for you work with the automaton! Favonian (talk) 20:59, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Oh seriously, Krajoyn is back? Yay. Drmies (talk) 21:59, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Does he ever go away? -- zzuuzz (talk) 22:02, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Sheesh what childishness. Drmies (talk) 22:21, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
