Kamala Harris[change source]

How can you write that Kamala Harris is a 'future President '??!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.157.22.45 (talkcontribs)

That was vandalism that has been removed. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 16:16, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

w:m:Global_block_of_Orange_ranges_(2015)[change source]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

w:en:User:Projects is basically the same as w:m:Global_block_of_Orange_ranges_(2015)

I post it here since "meta" pages are editprotected from IPs. So basically both "Wikinger" and "Projects" are equivalently grave. But only w:en:User:Projects is officially globally banned and listed at w:m:List of globally banned users. Can you warrant analogous global ban for w:en:user:Wikinger mentioned by Antandrus? It will make stewards more ruthless in hounding him. So what? When he will earn his long overdue global ban? Can you admins initiate it for him? Enough is enough! Hint: use w:m:Requests_for_comment/Global_ban_for_Avoided as template. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 34.238.170.228 (talkcontribs)

Global bans are handled at meta. You will have to go there and create an account if you want to have something happen there. -DJSasso (talk) 11:23, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

We can't handle global bans / global locks here. You have to request on meta:SRG. Since the page is protected, make an edit request there and someone will help you edit. I note that some of the reported are already blocked on meta. --Cohaf (talk) 12:14, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

No way. It's discussion too protected.

You can make an edit request on its talk page. We can't help you here. -DJSasso (talk) 12:24, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Discussion IS Talk, already protected as said before. Can you copy it into meta:SRG on my behalf?

No. Go create an account. -DJSasso (talk) 12:32, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Should the edits be deleted as they say that he wants to do bad things? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nigos (talkcontribs)

I have, but for future reference, just email the admin mailing list or the oversighter list as opposed to posting on a board about it because that just brings attention to it. You could even just email an individual admin, but that might be slower. -DJSasso (talk) 11:21, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

What should we do with the page creations here? I think it might be best to move them to "List of [x]" and remove the templates that don't exist on simple that were copied from en. Vermont (talk) 13:14, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

They also need lead sections and categories. However, I'm not sure this is an admin matter. --Auntof6 (talk) 13:26, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
I keep deleting, fixing, and have warned. So today I start blocking. It has been going on for over a week with various IPs. -DJSasso (talk) 13:33, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Interesting. If they keep doing this (and it seems they completely ignored the message I put on their talk page), we should probably just delete and block future accounts. Vermont (talk) 13:39, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Yeah. I warned them the last couple days with the intention of starting blocks today. So I have blocked them and deleted these pages. Some in the past I have been cleaning up and putting attribution on, some I have deleted and reimported over so they were clean. Others I have just outright deleted. But so far they haven't responded. If they continue I will be just blocking on sight and deleting if the pages are not appropriate. -DJSasso (talk) 13:44, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately they haven't been using the same 64 range so I can easily do a range block to get their attention better. -DJSasso (talk) 13:46, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Template:Infobox basketball club[change source]

This template needs another import, a lot has changed since the last one in Jan. 2019. Zaxxon0 (talk) 00:10, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

I updated it, but just keep in mind we do not try to keep up to the minute updated with en.wiki. In fact sometimes our infoboxes are different on purpose. I try to make sure this isn't often the case but it is sometimes so if you update a template it is always a good idea to go through fixing the pages using it. -DJSasso (talk) 10:49, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Taliban Hendrix MS13[change source]

I need this page unprotected. You've been harrassing an upcoming artist Taliban Hendrix MS13 https://g.co/kgs/3yNWd4 Wikipedia link Taliban Hendrix MS13 -> https://simple.m.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Taliban_Hendrix_MS13&action=edit&redlink=1 — Preceding unsigned comment added by ZodiacBlogger2 (talkcontribs)

Bad news pal, you're on the complete wrong project to be complaining about this since it's not yet been deleted here. But I'd advise you against creating it for the same reasons you were told elsewhere. You're likely to wind up globally locked at this point if you attempt it.

PS for any reviewing admin this is also their account. Praxidicae (talk) 10:06, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
