Rename request[change source]

Hello IWI, could you please change my username to "ZzzzZ"? –Hulged†^|k⟩ 11:41, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Hulged: You will have to follow the steps at m:Steward requests/Username changes. You will be changing your name globally, there is no option to change your name locally anymore. --Belwine (talk) 11:43, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
Belwine, ok thanks! –Hulged†^|k⟩ 11:49, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Also, if it was available locally, only a bureaucrat could do it :) --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:39, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Design Help[change source]

I'm terrible with wikicode when designing pages, could you point me to an tutorial page? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:42, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Sure. en:Help:Wikitext is a good place for that :) --IWI (talk) 00:44, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. Also how's it going? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:52, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
@つがる: Sorry, my internet went last night so I went to sleep :/ I'm doing fine thanks, other than that :D My internet has returned. --IWI (talk) 14:42, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

LTA IP blocks[change source]

I noticed you put in the same blocks with the same restrictions with the same reasoning to multiple IPs. Is it a sock using a VPN or proxy? Darubrub (talk) 16:03, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Yes. --Belwine (talk) 16:04, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
 (change conflict) Yes, some kind of proxy service (unless they are instantly travelling thousands of miles, lol). --IWI (talk) 16:05, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) On enwiki I block the IPv4s for six months (unless they geolocate to Chicago) -- I have noticed he gets the same ones over and over enough for me to suspect it may do some good. (ps - you're doing a nice job adminning. :) ) Antandrus (talk) 16:47, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you Antandrus :). I'm not sure whether it would be worth doing the same here, considering IPs can change. --IWI (talk) 16:57, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
The only IP's that don't change are my grades ;P --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 23:44, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Haha! Sounds funny. 88.145.93.137 (talk) 23:50, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

DYK Queue[change source]

What's the policy on updating the queue, the current one has been on for 8 months now. We have 3 more queues ready, I suggest a new queue, which will leave us with 2 queues left, a total of 16 months if we keep them on for 8 months each? Though it may vary depending on the numbers of DYK hooks made Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:13, 14 April 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Generally you don't want to exhaust the DYK queue too quickly or we get in a situation where we use up all the hooks and then are stuck on one. Being that its been eight months we can probably update since we have a couple ready. But generally I suggest never updating them if we don't have a few ready. At the rate we generate them right now we don't make enough to update more than about once every 6 months. Unfortunately last year we switched them a bunch too fast so used them all up in a couple months and didn't spread them out so we could update them every couple months. -Djsasso (talk) 14:25, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes, that was my fault last year. Sorry. Right now, it could be good to switch the queues. --IWI (talk) 14:33, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
How can I update the Queue, if this seems to soon, please let me know, but we do have 2 queues after this one, and as mentioned earlier would last 1 year up to 16 months. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 23:39, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
