Question[change source]

Hi, Vermont, could you take a look at this removal of content, it does not seem valid. Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:32, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Handled, thanks! Vermont (talk) 00:57, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the fast reply! Once I saw a meme where a guy copied a whole Wikipedia article, but made sure the article didn't actually exist to avoid being caught. ;P --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:01, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Tiny request[change source]

I'm not sure if you're active on the English Wikipedia, but if you are, I was hoping that you could please quickly correct this typo here:,_Constantinople,_the_Straits,_and_the_Middle_East

"Meanwhile, in regards to Anatolia, it was advised for an independent Turkish Anatolian state tp be created under a League of Nations mandate, with the Great Power in charge of the mandate being determined later."

It's "*to* be created", not "tp be created". Thank you.

I don't do proxy editing, and I would recommend you do not try. Editors on that project can fix it themselves. Best, Vermont (talk) 21:41, 29 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
OK. Also, just how exactly does one do proper source attribution? For instance, on this article: The Inquiry? Can you please show me how to do this so that I will have a clear example visible and ready to go? Futurist110 (talk) 21:43, 29 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
For...referencing? Or copying from other projects? If it's the latter please see Template:Transwikied. Vermont (talk) 22:19, 29 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Did I use it correctly right now? For instance, for The Inquiry? Futurist110 (talk) 03:53, 1 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

question[change source]

If "Abuse Filter" was blocked, could Abuse Filter unblock themselves? Just wondering! Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:50, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

The abuse filter isn't a person. Vermont (talk) 21:51, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, but it says they have 'admin' rights... So would the script unblock the filter, or would it stay blocked? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:52, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The abuse filter does everything server-side, if I remember correctly. It doesn't actually use the administrator userright. Vermont (talk) 21:57, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Huh, interesting. Oh what does it mean when it says 'blocked the autopromotion of..." ? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:58, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It means a user triggered a filter that was set to remove the autopromotion (as in, when you hit 10 edits/4 days you become autopatrolled) of users who trigger it. I think. Vermont (talk) 22:06, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That's what I thought too --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:09, 2 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Additional question[change source]

Do you know if the Simple English Wikipedia actually has anything comparable to Wikipedia's Resource Exchange: Resource Request? Futurist110 (talk) 03:32, 4 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Block[change source]

hi, Vermont, I've blocked this IPV6 for many vandalism. --Wim b (talk) 14:49, 5 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

IP also has similar behavior to this ip too. Darubrub (Let me know) 14:50, 5 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Invitation for Functionary consultation 2021[change source]


I'm letting you know in advance about a meeting I'd like to invite you to regarding the Universal Code of Conduct and the community's ownership of its future enforcement. I'm still in the process of putting together the details, but I wanted to share the date with you: 27 June, 2021. I do not have a time on this date yet, but I will let you soon. We have created a meta page with basic information. Please take a look at the meta page and sign up your name under the appropriate section.

Thank you for your time.--BAnand (WMF) 15:06, 2 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Question[change source]

A while back we had a new user on SEWP (s)he asked if there was a way to change the way it said "my settings" instead of "preferences" in the top menu, I found a solution to that, do you know which user that was? Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 22:00, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry, I don't remember. Vermont (talk) 22:58, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wikipedia in space[change source]

Does Wikipedia work in outer space? ;) Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:05, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Does the internet work in outer space? Darubrub (Let me know) 00:06, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well, if you're connected to the internet, then yes. And, as far as I know, we've only had one edit from space, and in November 2019. Best, Vermont (talk) 00:35, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Technically speaking, would Aliens be allowed to edit Wikipedia provided they follow the rules? If they actually do edit, that would be real interesting. Also, I did not know that editing Wikipedia in space was even possible! --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 00:58, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Wikipedia is just a website. Why wouldn't you be able to edit it, as long as you can get an internet connection? --Auntof6 (talk) 01:22, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Little does everyone know, I am actually a squirrel. Vermont (talk) 02:36, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well three billionaires are having a space race right now, and we all know how long they can go without Tweeting is like five minutes, so I think we might be in for some orbiting hotspots. Darkfrog24 (talk) 02:48, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
If I ever get to space, first thing I am going to do is see is works, then I will tell Vermont via IRC in space lol --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:58, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply] barely works to begin with lol. Vermont (talk) 17:50, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Plot twist: is actually a secret site all universities use to store their tests, so students can't cheat, but the site is secretly ran by students ;P --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 21:50, 19 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Admin[change source]

I'm Want Be an Administrator, Because I'm are a New Comer on Wikipedia, Vermont, Can You Promote Me? BA22100 GS91 (talk) 01:11, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

No bureaucrat can unilaterally promote a user to admin, you have to submit a Wikipedia:RFA. You would unlikely pass as you are new you have to make a lot of contributions before you become an admin, you don’t get to become one as soon as you get here. So I suggest that you A) make a few hundred contributions and get involved in the administrative areas and B) after about 2-3 months leave me a message and I will request you a RFA if I think you are worthy but you have to put the work in before you get to become an admin. Thegameshowlad (talk) 13:27, 1 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It has less to do with putting in work and more to do with understanding administrative work and responsibilities. I would also recommend that you not nominate anyone for adminship anytime remotely soon. Best, Vermont (talk) 13:31, 1 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'm Select A, Because I'm are a New Comer on Simple English WIkipedia BA22100 GS91 (talk) 01:11, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Please You Promote Me into Administrator If I'm Made 200 Edits BA22100 GS91 (talk) 04:41, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No. Vermont (talk) 04:46, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
But Why? How to Be Promoted into Administrator? BA22100 GS91 (talk) 04:57, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It isn’t a promotion, it’s an increase in technical ability after the requisite showing of community trust. New users often don’t understand what we do or why and determine they want to become administrators; that is common, but not a positive thing. If you’d like to help edit, do so without the explicit intention of becoming an administrator. Vermont (talk) 04:59, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Goodbye, Vermont, You Can Promote Me Into Administrator If I'm Made Least 1,000 Edits BA22100 GS91 (talk) 05:07, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Enquiry[change source]

If someone is already blocked, can you block them while they are blocked. Or is "Changed Blocked Settings" the equivalent of this? Just a note, I am not as active now due to online school and life being crazy. Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:23, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

つがる, you can't really block someone twice. You can extend the block, change what it's a block from, other options, etc., and yes it's under change block settings. Best, Vermont (talk) 02:26, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Be kind...[change source]

Hello Vermont, I blocked the self-confessed LTA for a week. If you have other info, feel free to adapt the block accordingly. --Eptalon (talk) 23:24, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

It's an LTA. No real point in extending the block as it'll hopefully be locked soon, whenever a stew gets to it. Best, Vermont (talk) 23:30, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Is Fuerdai WMF banned? Or is he just a locked user? SHB2000 (talk) 23:34, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Just locked, and has been for a while. Not sure if this one is Fuerdai specifically (it's a bit late for them to still be awake) or a copycat, but they're an LTA nontheless. Vermont (talk) 23:36, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Probably an impersonator. Because seeing what he did at s:User:Vermont, he hasn't gone on his "up down up down up down" rant. SHB2000 (talk) 00:56, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

timetravel[change source]

If I time travel back would it be freenode? hehe ;) Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:44, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Depends how far/soon back you go... Vermont (talk) 12:07, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I was thinking as far back as before pizza came out, but I like Pizza, so probably go back to 2018 or to 2317 - wait it's 2021! How is it 2021, I time travelled too far, better get back to 2311 before My boss finds out I escaped from the never ending work! --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:22, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

3 months[change source]

Hi Vermont! Could you renew semi-protection on my talkpage for 3 months? Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:18, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Actually I think around 2 weeks is better --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:22, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay! I’ve added semi-protection for two weeks. I hope you’ve been doing well lately! Vermont (talk) 00:35, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you! Yea, I've actually been quite busy the past while, and now I am going to be even busy again, because I need to finish up my Japanese class, and start applications for University/College. How are you? --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:36, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I’m happy to hear that! And good luck in your applications! I’m doing well on my end. Vermont (talk) 01:51, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

How we will see unregistered users[change source]


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)
