Proxy server[change source]

What is the policy on blocking confirmed proxy server IP addresses? Is there one? Etamni | ✉   14:15, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Yes, there is (here), although I will be surprised if we have to block one locally nowadays - stewards tend to get to them and apply global blocks before they come here to cause havoc. Are you referring to the recent IP? Chenzw  Talk  14:18, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes I am. Etamni | ✉   14:32, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
Are you sure that the IP is an open proxy? I can't establish a connection to it, it doesn't seem to appear on any watchlist/wall of shame, and being present on just the BRBL is not a particularly strong sign that it is an open proxy. Considering the nature of the ISP, this IP address could be one which is assigned to a school, library or company. Chenzw  Talk  14:40, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
This link (although I guess it may be a proxy server without being an "open" proxy). Well, anyway, the user's edits were particularly bad. I stopped warning the user after applying a final warning to the account, but the bad edits and pages just kept coming (including to my user page, although that was easy enough to fix). Etamni | ✉   14:59, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, it probably wasn't an open proxy, but a proxy for a school or similar (which could explain the nature of some of the edits). This looks like a rather persistent (determined?) vandal - if the vandalism from the IP (or range) picks up again shortly after the block expiry, please put it up on VIP again, and we will apply a longer block. Chenzw  Talk  15:03, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
I won't be online when the block expires, nor soon afterward -- working 12-hour shifts that day and several afterward, which doesn't leave much time to edit the encyclopedia. Etamni | ✉   15:08, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I'll try to keep an eye open. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:17, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Re: link change on simple.wikipedia[change source]

Didn't realize I was on Will re-creating a page from English Wiki content on Simple (according to Simple guidelines) be appropriate course of action instead of linking? — This unsigned comment was added by Стопервый (talk • changes).

Yes, please feel free to. Chenzw  Talk  06:29, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Signature[change source]

== Signature == Hey Chenzw how do u make a good signature. Maybe after commenting on a person's talk page right below it, it shows your username right? So how do u make a more unique one. Trunzep 13:55, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

One way is to use colours or different fonts. This requires an understanding of HTML. The steps for configuring a custom signature can be found on this page. Chenzw  Talk  15:53, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Israel[change source]

Hi, Chenzw:

I've noticed a little uptick in vandalism on the Israel article. It's not a ton, of course, but Israel's Independence Day (Yom Ha'atzmaut) is a week from Thursday. I wonder if we shouldn't semiprotect just for a couple of weeks. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:31, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi, as of right now there is not enough recent vandalism for a page protection. That said, I have added the page to my watchlist, and will protect once the vandalism becomes more prevalent. Chenzw  Talk  22:42, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

User:Binbooo[change source]

I think that this user is representing a company, based on their user page. Can you look into it and take appropriate action if needed. Thanks. The Newspaper (talk) 12:01, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
