Looneyboy6 and friends[change | change source]

Hi all, please be advised of the above and editing habits, as well as Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Current_issues_and_requests_archive_45#User:Looneyboy6 (and maybe Rottweiler, with long history). He has a tendency to focus on articles related to dogs or rappers. Not quite sure whether no clue or trolling. Previous attempts to communicate have been unsuccessful, and nowadays he seems to be obsessed with convincing us to "accept" his changes. Chenzw  Talk  15:26, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

He has reappeared as the following:

Aas Mohammad Ali Abbasi[change | change source]

This is a user promoting himself at enwp, commons, and simple. Could you please search from time to time and block and delete creations?

He will sometimes also create accounts in the name of his parents or co-stars with the purpose of making a userpage infobox littered with his name.

Please paste any account names found at the "Not yet filed" section of my enwp orange sandbox. I will then file names en masse from time to time at the enwp SPI for the record. I will also do a commons image search for the accounts as well as request global locks.

Here are 4 needing blocks and userpage deletion (already listed at the orange sandbox):

[Global proposal] (all) Edit pages[change | change source]

MediaWiki mobile

Hi, this message is to let you know that, on domains like, unregistered users cannot edit. At the Wikimedia Forum, where global configuration changes are normally discussed, a few dozens users propose to restore normal editing permissions on all mobile sites. Please read and comment!

Sorry for writing in English but I thought as administrators you would be interested. Thanks, Nemo 22:26, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Castilleja School editing Wikipedia class 3/23/2015[change | change source]


My school would like to continue our multi-year tradition of having students edit pages in Simple English Wikipedia. We would be deeply grateful for an administrator to help us make this process go smoothly. We work hard to create worthwhile content matching Wikipedia's standards and following rules of Simple English, and look forward to working with you.

This year, we would like to celebrate Women's History Month by adding to stubs/adding pages about notable female authors commonly read by middle school students. I've confirmed that the time is planned for Monday, March 23, from 8am-11:50am Pacific. Students are creating accounts later this week, and I will have all the information in place on that ASAP.

Thank you so much, Tasha, Castilleja Librarian Castilibrary (talk) 19:05, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
