Administrator's assistance

This is a place where users can communicate with administrators, or administrators with one another. You can report vandalism, problematic users, or anything else that needs an administrator's intervention. Do not report child pornography or other potentially illegal content here; e-mail legal-reports@wikimedia.org instead. If reporting threatened harm to self or others also email emergency@wikimedia.org.

Note

  • Keep your report as short as possible, but include links as evidence.
  • Remember to sign and date all comments using four tildes (~~~~), which translates into a signature and a time stamp.
  • It is usually appropriate to notify the user(s) concerned. {{subst:Discussion-notice|noticeboard=COM:AN/U|thread=|reason=}} is available for this.
  • It is important to keep a cool head, especially when responding to comments against you or your edits. Personal attacks and disruptive comments only escalate a situation; Please try to remain civil with your comments.
  • Administrators: Please make a note if a report is dealt with, to avoid unnecessary responses by other admins.


More Paul Easter sockpuppets[edit]

User:Juyorgro, User:Grino79 and User:Gyhuo88 all appear to be Category:Sockpuppets of Paul Easter, uploading the same old publicity shots of Easter as their "own work", for use in sock-written autobiographies on Wikipedia. --McGeddon (talk) 09:32, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

New account User:Housepainter177 is now uploading the same photo and a DVD cover. --McGeddon (talk) 10:52, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

User:HOT SAUCE MOM[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

This user appears to be uploading material intended to disrupt wikimedia projects. See for example File:FAVONIAN IN REAL LIFE.jpg, apparently intended to target User:Favonian. Further, the media file File:Abusive mom on the Dr. Phill Show.webm appears to be a copyright violation. The last image they have uploaded is File:FUCK YOU.png. At a minimum, the first two references media files need to be deleted, and perhaps the third. What to do with the user...? --Hammersoft (talk) 20:57, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Well that was quick. All files deleted and the user has been blocked. Thank you! --Hammersoft (talk) 20:59, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
