Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/Rael da Rima[change source]

Rael da Rima has been moved to Rael during the RfD. The original RfD is Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/Rael da Rima, but now the user that moved it created a new RfD at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/Rael, which might be quickly deleted as housekeeping. What should be done in this situation? Lights and freedom (talk) 05:34, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OrcaVision and other socks[change source]

Hii! I came across @Lights and freedom's talk page and saw that a user named KristiNoem2. It appears that they are admitting being socks of Orca Vision Inc. Now, I am not really involved in the situation, but just wanted to let the admins know and check out what's happening. Happy editing! SoyokoAnis - talk 03:21, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(Non-administrator observation) @SoyokoAnis, please report to WP:RCU for sock cases. Volunteers will look into matter then. DMK-C5 (talk) 03:24, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! SoyokoAnis - talk 03:29, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 (change conflict)  @SoyokoAnis Hello, the account mentioned has been locked, which means it cannot be used on any Wikimedia project anymore. A local block could be enforced as well, but since they have continued socking since then, it won't really help. Any accounts that exhibit similar behaviour should be reported to WP:VIP for a local block, and m:Steward Requests/Global, for a global lock. Thanks. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 03:30, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Fehufanga Should I still report to WP:RCU? SoyokoAnis - talk 03:31, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SoyokoAnis I'd recommend going straight to WP:VIP, especially if it's clearly them. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 03:39, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request block User:Inspector-Gourmet[change source]

Queen-Divas ‎sock,see CA,en:Wikipedia:Blocks and bans#Reciprocal.--MCC214 (talk) 10:24, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MCC214 Is it a global ban/block? SoyokoAnis - talk 13:26, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In-fact enwiki's' page about reciprocal is
"The English-language Wikipedia does not have authority over the Meta-Wiki, Wikimedia sister projects, or Wikipedias in languages other than English. As such, bans issued by the English Wikipedia community or Arbitration Committee have no effect on other projects." SoyokoAnis - talk 13:40, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
SoyokoAnis, perhaps they were referring to WP:ONESTRIKE. I blocked the original account Queen-Divas (talk · contribs) for violating the one-strike rule, that is the account that Inspector-Gourmet (talk · contribs) is a sock of. --Ferien (talk) 18:22, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ferien The socking happened here? SoyokoAnis - talk 18:27, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They were evading their block by creating an account here, but really, accounts should only be reported after they've made at least 1 edit, in cases of block evasion. --Ferien (talk) 19:00, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MCC214, SoyokoAnis: the user has been globally locked, so nothing else needs to be done here. Hockeycatcat (talk) (changes) 13:42, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I report this sock before this account have been globally banned, but now this account have been globally banned, so you can ignore this block request.--MCC214 (talk) 09:20, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Joe Swanson[change source]

I request for page protection for 1 week due to excessive vandalism.--DMK-C5 (talk) 15:41, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Done I blocked the IP that has done most of the vandalism, but since others are "helping" I protected the page. -- Auntof6 (talk) 18:05, 20 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cascade protection of article "France"[change source]

Cascade protect this page to prevent excessive vandalism. Thank you. 143.44.165.98 (talk) 00:46, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We would probably never do cascade protection. As for this page itself, it hasn't been edited since July, so no protection is needed there. -- Auntof6 (talk) 01:03, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There seems to be a pattern of disruptive edits to the administrators' noticeboard from this IP - they previously suggested protecting everything above. --Ferien (talk) 21:25, 30 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Edits relating to Putin's annexation of four regions...[change source]

Hello, Vladimir Putin recently announced that he'd incorporate fourUkrainian oblasts into Russia, namely Luhansk, Donnetsk (where there are two unrecognized "People's republics"), Zaporizhia and Kherson; after a make-believe referendum, which did nt meet any standards. Since no one recognized this action (as well as the annexation of the Crimean penisula in 2014), we should be aware that artiicles might pop up or be changed in such a way as to say that these areas (which are not under full Russian control either) are now port of Russia. I recently nominated one of these new article for deltion Zaporozhye Oblast (deletion discussion). Just be aware, that other articles in the same style might pop up.
