Albanian Historian[edit]

I have recently come across several blatant copyright violations from this user. I (succesfully) reported one file for speedy deletion a week ago, this morning I (successfully) reported seven more, and I have just submitted a request regarding another two. I see that most of the remaining files uploaded by this user are tagged for deletion (although not speedy).

Looking back at the users track record, I find that a "last warning" was given 4 January. Since then some sixteen files have been deleted, plus one speedy deletion apart from mine. Currently, around 10 files are listed for deletion, but not yet deleted.

I am not a very frequent user at Commons, so I am not quite sure about how things work here. I do feel, however, that something needs to be done; the user in question has obviously no clue about how copyright works. Also the few files that still are not marked for deletion should probably be checked. Regards! --TU-nor (talk) 12:12, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Pictogram voting info.svg Info I archived messages of their talk page from 21 May 2015 to 31 January 2016 at User talk:Albanian Historian/Archive 1. For the last warning, go to User talk:Albanian Historian/Archive 1#Copyright violations. I archived their talk page to prevent the template include size from exceeding. Thanks, Poké95 12:24, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
✓ Done Uploaded 7 more files on February 10 (as mentioned above), all speedily deleted as "Blatant copyright violation; watermarked picture" on the 11th. Indefinitely blocked, with talk page access open. @Pokéfan95: Thanks for reporting (er, chiming in) @TU-nor: To you, thanks for reporting. Revent (talk) 13:45, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Vandalism by 187.67.96.38[edit]

187.67.96.38 (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user Destructive vandalism in several commons files.

This IP is a pt.wiki user, blocked indefinitely, per this discussion and now he chasing the sysops in other wikis. --PauloMSimoes (talk) 16:27, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

✓ Done, blocked for one week. I no see need to block for a longer period. Anyway, I'll keep an eye on this IP, and if he still keep the disruptive behavior, will again be blocked. PauloMSimoes, obrigado por avisar. Érico (talk) 02:48, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Connor7617[edit]

Would it be possible to block Connor7617 for copyright violations? I recently ran a sockpuppet investigation on the English Wikipedia for this account, and it was determined that he was a sock of Bwmoll3, who was blocked on that site in 2014 for massive copyright violations. They then abandoned that account and created the above one, and continued to upload licenses with flimsy copyright tags, etc. Revent and I have tagged two hundred images of theirs as having no source, which goes in line with the issues that they have had before. I suspect there may be as many as twelve to fourteen thousand images on here, many with no valid source or missing other sorts of criteria, so I would like to prevent any more damage from occurring, if possible.

Pictogram voting info.svg Info I archived a lot of their talk page warnings, which had exceeded the template include size. I archived them into 3 archives. -- Poké95 02:27, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
