Unblock request[change source]

SemiTransBlack x.svg

This blocked user (block log | unblock | changes) asked to be unblocked, but one or more administrators said no to this unblock request. Other administrators can also review this block, but should not unblock the user without a good reason.

Request reason: "If you unblock me, I promise I won't do a single quick deletion again and I absolutely admit to this block because I was making unconvincing quick deletions. I don't agree with the block because I was just doing quick deletions and I am blocked indefinitely. Please may you reduce the block to at least 30 hours. I promise I won't do disruptive editing again. I am really sorry I was making speedy deletions to good articles and I won't do it again. I wasn't vandalising Wikipedia. Secondly, I read the blocking policy and it didn't say to block users who are making incorrect quick deletions. I agree to the deletion policy. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes with quick deletions and RfD nominations and they are all normal and not extremely serious. None of these things mean vandalism. Finally, only 18 of my quick deletions out of around 80 were declined and that is not much and none of my edits or my speedy deletions were declined today. The only things I did today were reverting vandalism and making correct quick deletions. If you unblock me, I will be editing articles and reverting vandalism but I won't be making unconvincing quick deletion requests again. I know that it was all my fault. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:24, 17 January 2017 (UTC)"

Decline reason: "You have not shown that you understand why your edits were problematic. Also, you have apparently decided not to edit here any more, so there is no need to unblock you. -- Auntof6 (talk) 05:06, 22 January 2017 (UTC)"

Why was I blocked? I did nothing wrong and I was suddenly blocked. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:01, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

User talk:Pkbwcgs#One strike warning -DJSasso (talk) 19:03, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
I know I got a One Strike Warning but right now, there was no edit that bad. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:06, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
If you look at the deletion requests it is full of requests that are not deletion worthy. Since that was part of why you were blocked on en and since you continued to do the same here. That is what triggered your one strike. That isn't even mentioning speedy deletions. -DJSasso (talk) 19:08, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
I can't review your unblock request right now, but I want to mention that having 18 out of 80 quick delete requests declined is a lot. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:37, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Everyone makes mistakes. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:39, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Mistakes aren't witbout consequences. When a user's mistakes here are disruptive enough, they get blocked, especially when the situation meets the one-strike provision. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:56, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
I think it is actually less because most of the articles that were deleted were created later. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:52, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
I disagree. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:56, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Today, none of my quick deletion requests were declined. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:00, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
We don't look at just one day. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:12, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
And we don't just look at quick deletions. You've also created numerous RFDs that are going to be closed as keep, including several since your one strike warning. Only (talk) 23:32, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Moreover, while we certainly need people to patrol new pages and to nominate bad articles for deletion, that's not fundamentally what we're all about. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:09, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
I am willing to deal with this block in a kind way without any offensive behaviour. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:49, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
What does that mean? --Auntof6 (talk) 18:06, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
I would like to have a chat with you about this block. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:07, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
I really want to be unblocked. I promise I will not continue my bad behaviour ever again. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:41, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
You can email me by using the "Email this user" link in the sidebar on my user or user talk page and I'll explain this to you in more detail than I can here. In order to promise you will not continue your bad behavior you need to fully understand what that means. Rus793 (talk) 22:11, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

I would also like to be unblocked so that I can continue my job of fighting vandalism. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:05, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
I think a week's block is more than enough for a very minor mistake that does not require an indefinite block. I think I can be unblocked now. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:22, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
Firstly, I can understand that I did break the deletion policy by tagging articles that do not need to be deleted. Secondly, I would like to know what exactly made me blocked if my review wasn't correct. I think I deserve to be released from my blocked because the only thing I did was tag articles for deletion that shouldn't be deleted. I din't think this deserves and indefinite block. I think a week's block is enough. If I am unblocked, I am willing to fight and revert vandalism. Thank you. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:38, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
I was off editing Simple English Wikipedia for the last three weeks and I am behaving myself on other Wikis so please may I be unblocked because I think I can behave much better than last time. I would also like to continue my job in fighting vandalism. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:48, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Three days ago you were scolded on the Wiktionary for labeling Sandbox edits as vandalism. Good enough reason to not unblock you. Only (talk) 21:47, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

I had been blocked for one month already and I think it is more than enough. I have been scolded on the Wiktionary for labelling sandbox edits as vandalism but another user opposes to this (my talk page is located [1]). I have been behaving on the other Wikis so I would like to continue my work on reverting vandalism and creating more articles about train stations. Here is the deal, if I breach anymore policies ever again on this Wiki, I fully understand that it will be a straight reblock without any question and I will not continue my bad behaviour ever again. I have been working hard on the other Wikis and I have became an autopatroller on Wiktionary recently. Pkbwcgs (talk) 10:57, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
As the person you are citing on your talk page (actually now in the archive), I need to say that I have no idea if the scolding itself was justified. I simply wanted to make the point that there are certain things that constitute vandalism even in a sandbox. That's all.
It seems to me that if you want any hope of ever getting unblocked here, then you need to completely swear off vandalism patrol and new page patrol, and simply focus on adding content to the encyclopedia. There are enough people looking at vandalism that we don't really need your not-always-helpful contributions in that area. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:33, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Retiring[change source]

I am willing not to retire but I am currently blocked so I can't edit. This means that I am forced to retire but I would like to explain to you why my edits were problematic. Firstly, I made to many Rfd nominations that were not convincing at all. Secondly, I made too many quick deletion nominations that were not convincing and therefore I was blocked. I can fully understand that was one of my bad behaviours on the English Wikipedia but I can still turn it around. I will list my promises below:
  • I will not vandalise this Wiki.
  • I am here to only create new pages and revert vandalism but not to patrol pages
  • I will not make anymore unconvincing quick deletion nominations
  • I will also not make anymore unconvincing RfD nominations

Pkbwcgs (talk) 16:40, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

It seems to me like you just need to wait for a bit. The whole point of the block is that it is a punishment, and if you keep on asking and asking, you will just annoy everyone on here even more. Maybe take a wikibreak, but don't retire. Eventually come back, and you will have a much better chance than before. MiloDenn (talk) 16:46, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Actually, blocks are not intended as punishment. They are meant to prevent damage and/or disruption. See en:Wikipedia:Blocking policy for more information (our local version of that page doesn't have all the detail, but it still applies here). --Auntof6 (talk) 17:51, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Approximately, how long should I take a Wikibreak for? I am also currently taking a Wikibreak on the English Wikipedia. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:37, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
A year or so. MiloDenn (talk) 17:50, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
No one is forcing you to retire. Retiring means that you don't want to edit here any more, it's not something you do just because you're blocked. As far as your promises, I'm not sure they show that you understand the issues, so tell me this: what exactly was wrong with your QD and RFD nominations, and what would you do differently if you are unblocked? Be very specific, don't just say general things like "they were unconvincing". --Auntof6 (talk) 17:51, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
I nominated articles that are notable for being not notable and I shouldn't have done that. Next time, I should research each article on the internet before tagging them with quick deletion tags. I should also make sure that I check each article on English Wikipedia. For example, I accidently nominated Eat Bulaga! for deletion even though there is a article about it on the English Wikipedia. Also, when I searched this article up on Google it had a big banner about it as soon as I searched it up so this means that I shouldn't have tagged it for deletion because it is actually notable. It is notable because Google had a big banner with information on it as soon as I searched it up. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:04, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
That's not really the issue. That and the basic fact that you didn't seem to know the right place to put this reply tell me that you're not ready. As far as I'm concerned, your block should stand. If you're interested in editing here in the future, I recommend taking time to read the policies, guidelines, and procedures that we have for different things. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:35, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

WP:ONESTRIKE[change source]

Firstly, WP:ONESTRIKE is for banned users according to the English Wikipedia. See the difference between blocks and bans. On the English Wikipedia, my talk page (located here) does not have a single comment saying that I am banned from editing. I was only blocked indefinitely. If I am actually banned from editing, I wouldn't be able to change my talk page at all but I am able to change my talk page on the English Wikipedia. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:48, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
I wasn't damaging Wikipedia. If I was damaging Wikipedia, I would be vandalsing it. I learnt my lesson on vandalism and I will never vandalise Wikipedia ever again. Secondly, I am willing to edit in the future. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:00, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

email this user[change source]

Where is the email this user button on a user talk page? I couldn't find it on the sidebar. Pkbwcgs (talk) 16:31, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

It is in the section labelled "Tools". It's only there if the user allows email from other users. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:35, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Also, you have to be on the user page or user talk page of the person you want to email. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:47, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
I can't find the tools section. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:08, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
I would like to start a discussion on IRC about this block. Is it possible? Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:13, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
I really want to be unblocked. There is some important vandalism right now that I need to revert. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:49, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Any discussion on IRC would have no effect on the block, because it would need to be on-wiki before it was taken into account. As long as you can still edit your talk page, the same goes for email (we got the email you sent to the admins' mailing list). --Auntof6 (talk) 20:02, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
When will I be unblocked? I definitely did nothing wrong and I was blocked indefinitely. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:04, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Blocks and Bans[change source]

{{helpme}} Does my block count as a block or a ban? Pkbwcgs (talk) 21:17, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

A block. Bans are decided by community vote, which didn't happen in your case. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:10, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Request[change source]

Could you please delete my talk page. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:02, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but we do not delete user talk pages. If you want, you could move the sections that are not about active restrictions to an archive. You could do that manually, if your block allows it, or by using the automated archive process. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:10, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Templates moved from template space to user space[change source]

Hi, Pkbwcgs. I noticed that some user templates that you created were moved to your userspace. Since they weren't patrolled before being moved, they are stuck in the new templates list as unpatrolled. I am going to try to get them unstuck by deleting them and then restoring them. I just wanted to let you know so that you didn't think I was permanently deleting them. Let me know if you have any questions. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:25, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Archiving[change source]

How do I archive my talk page? Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:12, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

By moving the content to a separate page in your userspace. You could do that manually, or you could use the automated process that keeps it cleaned up for you. Just remember that you can't archive sections that are about current restrictions, such as your block. Using the automated process requires adding some code to the top of the talk page. Documentation for the bot that does the archiving is shown at User:MiszaBot/config. If you're having trouble figuring out how to set it up, I could add some basic code for you. The archiving is done about once a day, not immediately when you add this code.
Be aware that, just like we don't delete user talk pages, we also don't delete archives of user talk pages. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:06, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry about messing up your user name in my reply. It wasn't vandalism. Sometimes I accidentally touch characters I don't mean to when working on my tablet. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:24, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

I know it was an accident. Everyone makes mistakes. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:27, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
then why did you call it vandalism? You're saying you want to be unblocked so you can fight vandalism, but here you are calling something vandalism that you yourself admit was an "accident" and a "mistake". Only (talk) 21:14, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
I accidently called it vandalism in the edit summary but I didn't mean it seriously. I did a big clean up which involved removing a lot of stuff (if you see in my talk page history). I made a mistake. Pkbwcgs (talk) 21:19, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
I don't see how your clean up of your talk page led to you "accidentally" calling it vandalism considering the "vandalism" edit summary was one single edit 5 minutes after Auntof6's edit. It wasn't part of your other clean ups. Only (talk) 21:58, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Sometimes mistakes happen. If I think it is vandalism, I will remove it but I thought a another IP address messed up my signature. I didn't view the editing history at all. I thought there was something wrong with my signature so I removed it. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:54, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Indefinite Block[change source]

Another question, does an indefinite block mean that the block's duration is forever? I don't agree to the block duration. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:16, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes, that's what it means: forever unless you get unblocked.
At this time, you need to wait for an admin to respond to your unblock request. If you keep using the helpme template, that will be seen as disruptive and you may lose your ability to edit your talk page. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:27, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

95.246.123.80[change source]

This user vandalised my talk page and harassed me by posting inappropriate comments. This is the second time it is happening and I am fed up of this. Could you please semi-protect my page for a day to stop this from happening. Also, I am currently blocked so I can't report this user on the vandalism in progress page. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:17, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

This user is still vandalising my talk page, even after a 31-hour block. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:47, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Archiving parameters[change source]

Pkbwcgs, I added the minthreadsleft parameter to the archiving template here to try to stop the archive from archiving sections related to your current block. (You are not allowed to remove sections related to current restrictions.) If the archive archives anything about your restrictions, then that change will be undone and the archive will have to be disabled. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:54, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

At the moment, the archiving is somehow not working and nothing is being archived. Do you know what is the problem? Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:10, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
I added the minthreadsleft parameter again. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:16, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
I think it's working according to the parameters. What did you think it should do that it wasn't doing? It won't archive everything. You might want to read the documentation at the template to understand how it works. The parameter I added which you removed was to leave at least 15 sections on the page. That's more than usual, but you have to leave the sections that address your block. In any case, while you are blocked, you shouldn't be worrying about this. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:21, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Block[change source]

As I have been active on Wikimedia Commons and my behaviour has improved on all other Wikis. I think now is the time this seven months old block ends. I have recently taken up being autopatroller on Wikimedia Commons and I had no complaints from any other editors about my edits. I would like to be unblocked in order to continue editing other articles and make new articles about trains. I have learnt a lot since my block and my deletion requests are no longer unconvincing and are successful. I also learnt a lot of new policies in Simple English Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons and re-read the deletion policy multiple times. Therefore, I would like to ask politely to please unblock my account and I promise I won't ever misbehave on this Wiki ever again. I am also willing to not retire and I want to come back to editing on this Wiki. Thank you very much. Pkbwcgs (talk) 11:46, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Since this is a "one strike" block, we usually look to see you unblocked on your other project before we consider unblock here. So if you get unblocked at the English Wikipedia, then we'd consider your unblock here. Only (talk) 12:21, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
I don't think I will ever get unblock on English Wikipedia. I haven't made an unblock request yet but I don't think there is any chance I will be unblocked on English Wikipedia. Pkbwcgs (talk) 12:24, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
Why don't you think you'll ever been unblocked there? And why do you think you have a "better shot" here? Only (talk) 12:37, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
English Wikipedia will consider my block here and they will not unblock me at all. Pkbwcgs (talk) 12:40, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
I have tried requesting unblock on English Wikipedia's IRC channel but there was no response. It sounds like I have no more hope of getting unblocked on English Wikipedia. Pkbwcgs (talk) 13:09, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
So why should we unblock you if the English Wikipedia won't? Only (talk) 13:31, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
It doesn't seem like they've tried on-wiki. Perhaps sysops just missed their IRC request. (note that #wikipedia-en-unblock connect is the dedicated channel for unblocks) I'd recommend making an on-wiki request through the standard offer. That is provided, of course, that you have not been socking. I'd recommend citing your behaviour on commons and perhaps enwikt in your request. --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 13:36, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
I have made two previous unblock requests on English Wikipedia in January and both were declined. If I make another unconvincing deletion request and it is declined, I will probably lose access to changing my talk page. I don't if English Wikipedia will unblock my account or not but I just don't that it is worth making another request. The big question is whether the administrators will be convinced by my request or not. Pkbwcgs (talk) 14:10, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
You still haven't answered my question: why should we unblock you if English Wikipedia won't? Only (talk) 14:20, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
Here is the best answer I can give you at the moment: English Wikipedia didn't say they won't unblock me but I haven't made any unblock request as of now. I have been blocked on English Wikipedia for several months now but I will make a unblock request right now but I am 100% sure an administrator will decline it. In this case, I am willing to make an unblock request on English Wikipedia but I don't think it will be successful. However, I think this is the best step I can take in this situation. Hopefully, this should answer your question. Thank you very much, Pkbwcgs (talk) 15:17, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
I'd still encourage you to read en:WP:STANDARD. I don't see why you wouldn't be unblocked through this route. I don't see why you're "certain" that you will not be unblocked, unless there has been some sockpuppeting that we're not aware of. --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 17:16, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
I put my case forward on en:User Talk:Pkbwcgs. My fingers are crossed that it will work out but I still feel hopeless. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:22, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
I have absolutely guessed the outcome correctly. English Wikipedia is not going to unblock me so I guess my hopes are absolutely up and I don't think I will ever be unblocked for the next twenty years or even more. Pkbwcgs (talk) 08:26, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
How do you know they're not going to unblock you on the English Wikipedia? You requested unblock...Vanjagenije said because of the nature of the block it'd need to go through the noticeboard, what statement would you like to put on there?...you didn't reply for three weeks so it was declined procedurally. The only reason your unblock request was denied at the moment was because you didn't respond. Only (talk) 10:30, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

I have made an unblock request two hours ago that is ready to go through on the noticeboard. As of now, I haven't got any response. Also, I haven't been banned on English Wikipedia. It clearly says 'In some cases, users who have been banned on other Wikimedia Foundation projects edit Simple English Wikipedia.' when I read about WP:ONESTRIKE. I have even got it clarified by Auntof6 on the 'Blocks and Bans' section on my talk page. I will wait for a response on the English Wikipedia but I am very busy at the moment so it took some delay to give a response. Pkbwcgs (talk) 10:39, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
And I copied your request to AN and already two have supported unblock. Only (talk) 11:20, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
@Only: Thanks for all your help! Now I have been unblocked on English Wikipedia, can I be unblocked here? Pkbwcgs (talk) 15:43, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
I'm very hesitant to do so. I look at your talk page on English Wikipedia and see four different issues that have arisen in the 2 days since you've been unblocked that make me question whether you have the proper competence. Only (talk) 20:34, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
Can you please unblock me now. There has been no trouble for the past few weeks on English Wikipedia, I promise. You can even see my talk page on English Wikipedia. Pkbwcgs (talk) 21:40, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
@Only: I would love to improve articles on trains and help out it cleaning up formatting. I have moved on from patrolling from all Wikis as you can see from my edit contributions. I have been granted AWB rights on 4 wikis and I have been happily helping out. Being blocked here means that it disables the right to help out Simple English Wikipedia and I am willing to help out. I promise. Pkbwcgs (talk) 11:46, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
Green check.svg

Request reason(s):
I was blocked already for a year. I understand that I have violated WP:ONESTRIKE by opening too many AfD nominations that were closed as keep which was very disruptive. My reasons for my AfDs were also very vague and didn't justify why the article should be deleted. If I am unblocked, I would like to help out on improving articles related to trains by adding infoboxes to train articles that don't have them. I will also create more articles related to train stations and I will cleanup the formatting of Wikipedia articles like I am doing right now. Being blocked here disables the right to make the new train articles and disables the right to improve the encyclopedia. I want to help Wikipedia with my contributions. Pkbwcgs (talk) 21:02, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):
You seem to be doing fine on enwiki, recently being given the reviewer flag. Having flicked through your talk page, I don't see any major concerns that would make me doubt that you're going to contribute constructively. One thing that does concern me however on your enwiki talk, is the warnings regarding semi-automated tools being used carelessly. The issues are quite little things, but you really need to be careful when you're using a tool that can make hundreds edits within minutes, else you risk creating a bulky cleanup job. You seem to be receptive to the warnings given, however, which is good, but I'd advise you to exercise caution with using semi-automated tools. Remember that prolonged disruptive editing using these tools may result in a block. Cheers, --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 20:48, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Anytime an article is moved to the Simple English Wiktionary, it's advisable to use either G6 (housekeeping) with an extra comment stating that the article was moved to Wiktionary, or a custom rationale. hiàn 04:53, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Accidental revert[change source]

Sorry,it was accidental. I had the same problem yesterday and I'm currently resolving it. Please forgive me, it wasn't my wish :-). --DJ ( - ) 11:32, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Sorry for disturbing,just a quick query,how do you make userboxes? --DJ ( - ) 11:36, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

@It'zDJPerez: Hi. One day, I clicked onto an infobox and I was interested in how it is made. I looked into the syntax and I amended it to make my own infobox. For example,

{{userbox | border-c = #E6E6FA | id = [[File:Coat_of_Arms_of_The_City_of_London.svg|40px]] | id-c = #E6E6FA | info = This user lives in '''[[London]]''', the capital city of [[England]]. | info-c = red | info-fc = {{{info-fc|black}}} | info-s = {{{info-s|8}}} | usercategory = Wikipedians in England | nocat = {{{nocat|}}} }}<noinclude> <br style="clear:both" /> is the syntax for User:Pkbwcgs/User lives in London. border-c represents the colour of the border, id is the image that you want in the infobox, info is the information you want in the infobox, info-c is the colour of the infobox, info-fc is the font colour of the information in the infobox, info-s is the font size of the information, usercategory is the category the user would be placed in if they put that infobox and I don't know what nocat is. I hope this helps. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 11:45, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

@Pkbwcgs: its funny how you discovered it, curiosity haha! Well thanks so much lemme go test it on my sandbox. ;-) --DJ ( - ) 11:53, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
@It'zDJPerez: Curiosity also made me discover that there was a tool called CopyPatrol to find Copyright Violations. I used to spend hours looking through around 200 drafts a day for copyright violations and now it takes me minutes to look for them. Pkbwcgs (talk) 12:08, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
@Pkbwcgs: I'm astonished at you find stuff. Well,its been nice teaching some cool stuff here. :-). --DJ ( - ) 12:16, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
@It'zDJPerez: Thanks. Before I go. I have one more thing to teach you. If you ever wondered to be an admin on any Wiki but it felt like a long way away, go on PublicTestWiki and create an account and request adminship there. They give admin rights to any account. I never knew this before until I checked where I can test admin permissions. I got admin rights on that PublicTestWiki and TheTestWiki ([2]). Check this out! You can create an account and request admin rights there. The bureaucrats give it to any account over there. Pkbwcgs (talk) 12:22, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Vandals at WP:VIP[change source]

I'm watching account creation and recent changes and reporting all of them to stewards on IRC as soon as I notice it. Thank's for reverting their vandalism :) Vermont | reply here 17:16, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Their IP was just locked too, so it should stop. Vermont | reply here 17:17, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
@Vermont: You are very welcome and Huggle speeds up reverting vandalism. It takes ages to load up New Changes so it done much easier with Huggle. Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:45, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
When I'm patrolling it's usually in the #cvn-simplewikis IRC channel, where the counter vandalism bot reports possible vandal edits as they show up. Vermont | reply here 19:10, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
