Welcome to my talk page.

Usage of twinkle[change source]

Hey man,

Thank you for your recent block of 2600:1702:3650:9050:4DD5:1EC4:B7E4:42E1. That IP caused me a lot of issues. I just wanted to know if there was a way that I could use twinkle even though I am not yet auto confirmed because it would really help me with preventing vandalism but right now the only thing I can use it for is welcoming new users. Thanks --Examknow (lets chat! Paper Plane GIF Animation.gif) 17:31, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

You will be tomorrow. Vermont (talk) 19:01, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
haha I did not realize that. Thanks--Examknow (lets chat! Paper Plane GIF Animation.gif) 22:55, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Nice block. I had been debating making that block. Couldn't decide if it was worth it for such a big range and possibilities of collateral. He has quieted down recently so I didn't end up doing it. But it is worth watching. -DJSasso (talk) 14:28, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Chenzw made a 6-month block of that range last year. I presume it's their usual broadband range. Considering the range's frequent activity on the English Wikipedia, which is only partially them, I didn't want to block for too long, so a month seemed good to me. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 14:31, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah its a pretty common range for them. -DJSasso (talk) 14:35, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
FWIW, 3 months is my absolute maximum for any IP block (single or range). In theory, if (a) I know it's static, and/or (b) I have an unimpeachable reason for it, I might make an exception. But I don't think I've ever actually done so. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:09, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
DRV has caused global blocks longer than a year iirc. Some LTA's stick to their ranges and cause enough disruption to warrant it. Vermont (talk) 14:10, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
The standard limit is 1 year, however, for places like webhosts/open proxies often go to 3 years. For regular IPs we typically do following progression. 24/31, 48/72, 1 week, 2 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year. 1 year blocks on high issue IPs are very common. -DJSasso (talk) 14:40, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
I'll admit that neither of the two projects where I manage the blocking tends to have problems that intense. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:55, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Help me[change source]

Hi dear sir I am new User of Wikipedia I want your help please tell me how to simplify article created by another Wikipedia to simple Wikipedia¡ Consort-Plus (talk) 14:14, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

  • @Consort-Plus:Hello, do take a look at the links posted to your talk page. I'm happy to answer any doubts you have.--Cohaf (talk) 15:32, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Alright[change source]

Well, first of all, I didn't post a link to my website as a way of advertising myself. It was a way of showing what I know. I apologize for the rude language but I was just surprised at why my page was deleted when I clearly didn't advertise, all I did was link to a project of mine. And that project shows what I know. But alright. Have a nice day and thanks for responding.

Um, what happened there? Nigos (talk · contribs) 03:00, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

It's a WMF-banned editor. Best to ignore his rantings; he's been harassing Wikimedians since 2005 and people online since 1999. Multiple arrests/convictions. Vermont (talk) 03:03, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. Nigos (talk · contribs) 10:51, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Um, that user keeps on spamming me on Commons. What should I do? Nigos (talk · contribs) 00:22, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Report to m:SRG for stewards to gblock the IP or lock the account. Although, he usually changes IP's pretty quickly so by the time a steward gets to blocking it he would be on another. Vermont (talk) 01:30, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
I've tried various tactics, including talking to him (don't waste your time). Reverting and ignoring him seems best. He harasses people pretty much all day every day until he gets arrested, then it stops for a while. Antandrus (talk) 01:54, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
That user is now harassing Jimmy Wales??? Maybe protect his talk page. Nigos (talk · contribs) 00:03, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
Then he'll just vandalize another page. Also, he's cc'd Wales on a few dozen of the emails I've received from him. Honestly, just revert, report the IP, and dont engage him. That's the best way to deal with this. Vermont (talk) 02:18, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
OK. Nigos (talk · contribs) 12:15, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
