Would it be acceptable to turn alternative talk pages, such as User talk:CPAfan, into redirects to this talk page? I think that this would make all deletion notifications appear on this page, making them easier to follow. --Stefan4 (talk) 16:33, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

If the only real consequence is that those of us interested in tracking discussions about Russavia's very large collection of uploads to Commons (currently 155,974 files) are highlighted here, then this seems a positive thing to do. -- (talk) 16:39, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
As there does not seem to be any opposition, I have created a redirect from that talk page to this one. I am currently going through WMFOffice's global lock log to see if there are other talk pages which also could benefit from a redirect. --Stefan4 (talk) 00:49, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
Here I see "Account operated by/for WMF banned user" only; so no idea how we can assume they are all of this user? Moreover, I don't think it is good to encourage socking. (I had restored the archive and NOINDEX settings which seem useful.) Jee 12:15, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
It is entirely possible that some of the accounts blocked by the WMFOffice user were operated by some of the other WMF banned users. I only redirected two user talk pages to this talk page: User:Airenthusiast and User:CPAfan. In both cases, the operator of the accounts had self-identified as Russavia by uploading files to Category:Files uploaded by Russavia or one of its subcategories. I didn't bother trying to determine if other accounts belong to Russavia or not as they hadn't made significant file uploads to Commons as accounts without file uploads won't get deletion request notices in the first place.
Why do you think that redirects encourage socking? I would assume that Russavia would make just as many contributions with redirects in place as he would make without redirects in place. --Stefan4 (talk) 14:47, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
1. "Uploading files to Category:Files uploaded by Russavia or one of its subcategories" is not an evidence to identify a user; even I can do it. To confirm an account as a sock we need confirmation from a local CU or meta/wmf. 2.If redirects help to improve maintenance tasks, it will motivate that user to contribute more, which is possible only through socking. That said, I don't care it much. 3. He already said he will approach the court; so we should be very careful. Even innocent edits may make adverse effects to him in future. I share some of Fae's concerns below too. Even WMF used "by/for" not firmly "by".Jee 16:12, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
User:Jkadavoor: Right, so I won't add or change any redirects to this talk page. --Stefan4 (talk) 16:30, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
At of today, it is clear that WMFOffice is mistakenly blocking accounts not run by Russavia under the recent ban. As there is no appeal process without a legal case, and the actions remain non-transparent in terms of governance, there is a significant risk of Joe job accounts being created with the intention taking advantage of/hiding under a presumption of guilt for Russavia if discovered. I suggest Commons administrators researching vandalism on this project, avoid presuming that decisions taken by whomever is operating this staff group account, are based on unpublished logical hard evidence, but on guesswork that will easily go wrong such as the so-called flawed "duck test".
If this type of WMF office account blocking for suspected sock accounts is based on weak/bad evidence such as duck tests, close IP usage or browser headers, then Commons contributors should worry that their accounts are at risk of unexpected office blocks without appeal, should we ever unwisely use VPNs or edit from a café, library or take part in a sponsored Wikimedia edit-a-thon event using shared wifi access. -- (talk) 15:15, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
User:Fæ, are you talking about m:User talk:WMFOffice#Solidpoop2 (where it seems unclear who the account master is), or is there something else which I have missed? --Stefan4 (talk) 15:42, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Something else, which I have every intention of keeping confidential for obvious reasons. -- (talk) 15:46, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Stefan4, Ok, I will remember not categorize images uploaded by Russavia because I automatically will transform me into Russavia, that premise so absurd. WMF is globally locking it as if it is a Russavia. Is this evidence enough that they are simply playing whack-a-mole, and seriously have ZERO idea what is or isn't Russavia account. I can see there being some collateral damage along the way here in future..... --The_Photographer (talk) 15:10, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
The criteria I used for redirecting pages was that the account should have been globally locked by WMFOffice and that the account should have self-identified as Russavia by adding that category to its own uploads. Adding/changing other categories, or changing categories of other people's uploads, does not prove anything. I have no idea what evidence WMFOffice uses to determine whether an account should be globally locked. --Stefan4 (talk) 15:42, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
