Userspace protection request

Can an admin please fully protect this page in my userspace? I don't want anyone to edit it and I have no reason to edit it again, thanks. --IWI (talk) 11:34, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

(Non-administrator observation) Are you sure you won't need to update your SHA code etc, if you don't want anyone to edit could try to create it in an userspace css/js. Just my take as I see users needing to update SHA etc? Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:37, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
No, I am committed to it and will not need to change it again. --IWI (talk) 11:38, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
(Non-administrator observation) Oh then it's fine. :) Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:39, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Removal of rights request

Please note: a request for removal of rights has been filed at Wikipedia:Requests for deadminship/Eptalon. Your feedback is welcome. Mathglot (talk) 00:28, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

RFD page

I closed the Barron Trump discussion, which appears as closed on the page, but I can't move it into the completed section as the link appears to have disappeared. Can someone point out what I have done so I can fix it? Peterdownunder (talk) 07:01, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Is what I've done what you were going for? --Gordonrox24 | Talk 07:07, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Exactly so !Peterdownunder (talk) 09:47, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Nicholas Alahverdian

The article Nicholas Alahverdian should be protected in order to prevent ongoing cross-wiki disruption which is spilling over from enwiki. See User:Pmelo1 (blocked on enwiki, lock pending), User:94.46.167.5 (a proxy/VPN service), and User:Demzelq (a single-purpose account, almost certainly also a sockpuppet). ST47 (talk) 06:31, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

you are adding material about a dead man’s wife and kids and where the live, that is wp:undue. How is that relevant to the article. This is a BLP1E anyway, of a previously deleted article, and should be deleted.Demzelq (talk) 06:36, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Compare the en.wiki article written by the sockpuppets [1] to the article fixed by en.wiki editors [2]. Abuse also occurred on Commons [3]. The sockpuppets are here to promote the subject and remove negative material about the subject. starship.paint (exalt) 12:10, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

New information has emerged [4] [5] - we may receive more sockpuppets incoming as a result. starship.paint (exalt) 03:47, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Requested Move

Per Wikipedia:Requests_for_deletion/Requests/2021/Peyman_Keshavarzi_Nazarloo, can an admin move User:ShadowBallX/Peyman Keshavarzi Nazarloo to Peyman Keshavarzi Nazarloo as the better more complete version. Thanks. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:51, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

 Done -Djsasso (talk) 13:00, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks @Djsasso Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:16, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Creation protection for Roomball

And Relay Ball-related pages. I'd rather not have this happen again. Derpdart56 (talk) 16:03, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

We don't generally protect pages here unless its something we can't keep up with. At this point I don't think its necessary. -Djsasso (talk) 16:58, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Protection Chess master titles

Would an administrator please review the repeated vandalism on this article by an LTA, and consider protecting the article. Also to note that this LTA is doing the rounds, and enWikivoyage has a specific abuse filter that has been built to address this goose. Billinghurst (talk) 05:45, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

 Done One IP earned a free block...--Eptalon (talk) 07:25, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
They have an infinite supply of IPs, only protection would prevent the issue. With that said, the abuse has since stopped and is no longer needed. --IWI (talk) 11:30, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Semi protection request...

Of Template:!((. Nobody really has a reason to edit it (changes are not likely), and it was vandalised earlier. --IWI (talk) 11:32, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

 Done -Djsasso (talk) 13:25, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Please remove my sysop rights

Welp, after 12-15 years of Wikipedia and a good chunk of that here on Simple, I am retiring. Please remove my sysop tools to prevent any future nefarious actions on this account. Thanks for the time and collaborative relationships, all. Only (talk) 18:23, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

@Only sorry to see you go. I hope you'll consider coming back some day DannyS712 (talk) 18:25, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
@Only: Goodbye only. I hope to see you return one day. Thanks for all the work you have done :) --IWI (talk) 18:26, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Removed. Hope to see you back but I totally understand the need to retire. Thanks for all you did. -Djsasso (talk) 18:28, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for all the work you did, Only. Please take care. Hiàn (talk) 18:30, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
@Djsasso: As a minor point of order, it is my understanding that user talk pages shouldn't be deleted without a good reason. User talk:Only was deleted when he deleted his other user pages under U1. --IWI (talk) 18:32, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Yep didn't see he deleted it. I have undeleted. -Djsasso (talk) 18:36, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
@Djsasso: Thanks. He did the same on enwiki, but I'm not sure of the rules over there. --IWI (talk) 18:39, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
I will take a look over there and see. -Djsasso (talk) 18:40, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Sorry to see you go. Thank you for all the work you did here. --Belwine💬📜 18:37, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
@Only: Terribly sorry to see you leave Wikipedia. You were a soldier here. You’ll be standing in the Wikipedia Hall of Fame, and the world’s gonna know your name, cause you burn with the brightest flame. Kind regards, KirkburnFandom (talk) 18:34, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Only, we'll miss you. Thank you for the work you have done on our project. I wish you good luck in all your future endeavors. Vermont (talk) 18:41, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Always sad to see. Thanks for everything, and Only the best best of luck going forward.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 20:25, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
