Peyman Keshavarzi[change source]

Hello, please let an administrator review the article. This player has joined the tractor manufacturing team. In all news agencies, this news has also been added in Persian, but here a user is looking for an editorial war. I also added, please be careful.--5.126.209.71 (talk) 16:37, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

It was already handled in the first place you posted. I would point out that you were also edit warring so I suggest in the future not to do that and seek help before you get into an edit war. -Djsasso (talk) 16:48, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
I talked to him and explained to him, but he was looking for an editorial war. Thank you again.--5.126.209.71 (talk) 16:49, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Protection Request - Javier Hernández[change source]

Due to recent IP vandalism on Javier Hernández, I an requesting that the page be protected. ShadowBallX (talk) 16:08, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Not enough to warrant protection. IP is that did the majority of it is blocked. -Djsasso (talk) 16:56, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

ChenzwBot is malfunctioning.[change source]

"I was editing a page on the wiki ChenzwBot thought it was vandalism and I believe it was not vandalism. And ChenzwBot got rid of my part I made of the page and it was true." --- - Kamen rider saber

As someone who is decently read on this topic, I can say your additions to the article aren't really accurate. If you can find a reliable source that backs up these claims, you can re-add it. Best, --IWI (talk) 23:33, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

IP copying pages from en.wiki[change source]

See North Shields and then North Shields on en.wiki. The IP has been copying lead sections from en.wiki article and then making pages with them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by -noah- (talkcontribs) 13:27, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

(Non-administrator observation) It has been deleted. ShadowBallX (talk) 19:04, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Nonsensical articles[change source]

https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/73.106.241.234 This user is making nonsensical articles. Etoza (talk) 23:44, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

@Etoza: Blocked by Djsasso. You may want to use vandalism in progress next time. This page is for vandalism reports (creating inappropriate pages, vandalism after final warning, vandalism only accounts, etc.) —Belwine (talk) 09:24, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Stalin edits[change source]

This type of edit should always be reverted, right? Naddruf (talk) 05:25, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

@Naddruf: What do you mean by "this kind"? What is there about that edit that you're questioning? --Auntof6 (talk) 08:14, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
From what I can tell, that appears to be an edit from a WMF-banned editor. (he edits about Stalin a lot at the moment) Yes, his edits should always be reverted as he cannot edit any Wikimedia project.—Belwine (talk) 08:23, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Indeed. As a secondary reason, all of that information is false and made up by him. --IWI (talk) 11:47, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Be cautious though: We don't revert edits because of who made them; if we revert, we do so because of the content of the edit. With this particular edit, I would first add a template like {{fact}}. What is written there might be a "summary in own words" of a legitimate source (eg. a history book, or even a scientific article). If the template stays for longer, we can still remove the info. And no, I don't know whether what's written is what happened, or if it is made up. I am not a historian. --Eptalon (talk) 12:29, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
The WMF global ban policy gives anyone permission to revert his edits; he may not edit any wikimedia project. And anything he writes is usually part of his own version of reality, and is made-up. DENY should be followed. --IWI (talk) 12:38, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
  • This page is now in good order. The plot by Krushchov and Zhukov is nowadays historically verified. Macdonald-ross (talk) 12:43, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
    Just as a second point, allowing his edits to stand would be actively harmful to the reliability of this project. Please revert any you see. Best, --IWI (talk) 12:45, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
    In what way would it be harmful, as pointed out, we are looking at a legitimate edit. You don't keep a person from saving a child from drowning. Recently France awarded citizenship to an illegal immigrant for saving the life of a child (here)--Eptalon (talk) 12:52, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
    We are not looking at a legitimate edit... As Mac said, the page is now in good order since the false information was reverted. And you are comparing someone looking for a new life in France to someone who sends me (and many others) death threats on a daily basis, who also happens to be trying to add false information in our wiki. He is banned by the foundation for a very good reason, so please continue to revert and ignore him. I won't be discussing this further per DENY. --IWI (talk) 13:00, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Delete this page[change source]

Please delete this page. QD requests keep getting removed. Thanks. --Belwine (talk) 15:17, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

And the user should probably be blocked too for persistent promotion. --IWI (talk) 15:18, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
 Done -Djsasso (talk) 16:39, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Back at it again at this user continuing to remove QD tags Djsasso. Darubrub (talk) 13:16, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
 Done deleted and blocked. --IWI (talk) 13:34, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

Protect Aylesbury Grammar School[change source]

Aylesbury Grammar School should be protected because of lots of vandals vandalising. Android 2113853211 (talk) 19:30, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

Please protect this page.[change source]

Sasa Milivojev, IP editor keeps reverting my rollbacks--Derpdart56 (talk) 17:31, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

(Non-administrator observation) @Derpdart56:: In these cases, its better to just report the editor to WP:VIP and leave it at that. No need to continually battle with the person over the edits. They can be harmlessly reverted once the editor is blocked. My thoughts. You've done a lot of back and forth reverts on this, which I would have recommended you did not do once it is clear the person just puts the edit back. Desertborn (talk) 17:43, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
I will also note for the admin corps, that the issue in question is the RFD notice. And for Derpdart56, this is a good example of one to let go until admins can handle (after posting in the right spot). Removing the template doesn't get the editor anywhere since the article is already ongoing in a discussion at RFD. Removing the template doesn't stop that process. Desertborn (talk) 17:45, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
Blocked the user for 31 hours. --IWI (talk) 17:52, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
This IP is continuing the reverts: Special:Contributions/197.164.177.114, so it's pretty clear it's the same person. Lights and freedom (talk) 18:02, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
