Kasun Perera 18 sock puppetry[edit]

Kasun Perera 18 used a sockpuppet account (Akajones12) to upload this unfree image to Commons, then used his master account to add the image over at enwiki. Both accounts are registered at the Sinhalese Wikipedia. theinstantmatrix (talk) 07:42, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

( kasun perera I'm very sorry )

✓ Done Blocked master 1 month, indeffed sock. @Magog the Ogre: could you take a look at this for sleepers? Jon Kolbert (talk) 08:13, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Did Jon Kolbert look at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Air conditioner compressor inside.jpg and File:Air conditioner compressor inside.jpg (histlogsabuse log) before firing his admin shotgun? BTW Taivo’s action also raised my eyebrows. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:31, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Is this actually abuse of multiple accounts? (assuming they are indeed related) - Alexis Jazz ping plz 09:46, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
They are almost certainly related if only due to timing of events—Kasun Perera 18 used the image too rapidly even for a category watcher—but may be indeed friends or otherwise different persons. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:27, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Can any sysop unblock Kasun Perera 18 (talk · contribs), at least till checkusers completed their job? The user is currently unable to address problems in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Full Solar Eclipse.jpg. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:27, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

So? We see that en.Wikipedians harass our contributor at will, whereas Commoners look at this and do nothing? Sock puppetry is only a conjecture; at least I deem identity with the LTA Ravindu Navin unlikely, upon seeing upload patterns. And again – Kasun Perera 18 can’t presently address pending deletion requests. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:39, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Can any sysop reblock Akajones12 (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploads · Abuse filter logblock user with the reason “copyvio”? And also, the Ravindu_Navin case IMHO may be closed because we see no recently active socks of that LTA; the intersection in the picture of a Sri-Lankan statesman was likely incidental. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 09:01, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
I unblocked Akajones and explained my decision in his/her userpage. Only 1 copyvio, (s)he deserves a second chance. Taivo (talk) 09:19, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Continued copyright violations by Rustiz[edit]

User:Rustiz has continued to upload copyright violations after the expiry of his previous block. -- Whpq (talk) 15:07, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done. I blocked Rustiz for 3 months. All uploads are nominated for deletion. Taivo (talk) 17:20, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

User:Tseung kang 99[edit]

Stealthy copyvio and socking beyond a reasonable doubt. It would be nice if a sysop also looked at Exifs and arguments to source= in the files tagged for deletion by 38.140.161.122 and report results to the Wikipedes. Which signs was the IP sock afraid of? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:10, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done I blocked the IP for 3 days. Copyvios by Tseung kang stopped after you warned him/her, so block is not needed at moment, but any new copyvio should result a block. Taivo (talk) 08:33, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

VCOSTA[edit]

Please block VCOSTA (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploads · Abuse filter logblock user for continuing to upload nothing but copyright violations in spite of multiple warnings, including a "final" warning and several warnings after their "final" warning.

✓ Done Blocked for one week. 4nn1l2 (talk) 17:34, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
