Template:Images from Auckland Museum[edit]

Hello, Template:Images from Auckland Museum is going to have north of 170k transclusions in Category:Images from Auckland Museum soon. As such, I am requesting that it be template editor protected. I am currently working on a bot task (filing soon) that will start placing it in the category as a result of this request and for future-proofing. Alternatively, I can request once the task is filed or approved, just let me know how you wish to proceed. --TheSandDoctor (talk) 19:20, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

✓ Done. Taivo (talk) 07:43, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
@Taivo: Thank you! --TheSandDoctor (talk) 14:09, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

User:氏子[edit]

I accidentally found that 氏子 (talk · contribs) may be a suspected sockpuppet of blocked 寺人孟子 (talk · contribs). Because the first photo of 氏子 is taken with the same camera and at the same place as the last photo of 寺人孟子 before being blocked, and the time between the 2 photos taken is only 10 minutes, so I think these 2 photos are taken by the same person. Also, 氏子 is created just 2 days after 寺人孟子 was blocked.--そらみみ (talk) 14:10, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

If that user and 寺人孟子 are really the same person, he doing the same things as 寺人孟子 did. I have the good fortune to find a large evidence of his violation of COM:OW, are exactly the same with what 寺人孟子 practised. However, I just randomly checked files from his upload log and report to COM:HMSR.--Kai3952 (talk) 22:30, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
Honestly, I don't care if 氏子 is sockpuppet or not. However, up to now, all the evidences shows that he has a habit of overwriting his existing files with new versions. Obviously, he often made mistakes in regards to COM:OW. It does not only not benefiting Commons but also increased our workload on COM:HMSR. I would like to know what the appropriate next step is? Or, what advice does the experienced admin have for the user of pursuing overwrite files?--Kai3952 (talk) 12:26, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

User:Pantshorse[edit]

is asking for special treatment. See [1] and [2]. --Achim (talk) 22:35, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

  • They are continuing vandalism as User:Anguilla 2000 now. The special treatment was not enough to stop them. --E4024 (talk) 20:06, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
✓ Blocked by Jan for 1 week, thanks. I don't think that User:Anguilla 2000 is the same user. Though both seem to be kids the behavior differs. --Achim (talk) 20:42, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
I indef'd Anguilla 2000, but I concur on Achim's assessment that they're not the same person. --AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 20:55, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Imsamrat392[edit]

keep uploading copyvios after the final warning and a one week block. Oesterreicher12 (talk) 10:35, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Миодраг Крагуљ[edit]

Here is another sock of Миодраг Крагуљ, uploading copyrighted images of people related to Serbian Orthodox Church in same manner. Also all uploads should be deleted as copyvios.

Copyvios after final warning. --Yuraily Lic (talk) 17:18, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

I am sorry if violated any wikipedia copyright rules but that (File:Apollo Chennai.png) photo was take by my friend with his camera. If I made any mistake I am so sorry and I'll try not to. Peace -- Iambatman2022 (talk) 10:25, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

✓ blocked. @Iambatman2022 you should have checked COM:L before. You got warnings multiple times before. rubin16 (talk) 07:29, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, but I disagree with the block here. Iambatman2022 have acknowledged that they have violated our licensing policy, and have promised not to upload any copyvios again. The user haven't uploaded any copyright violations yet since they acknowledged their warnings here, according to their upload log. If they did, then block by all means. But since blocks are meant to be preventative (in which new copyvios are already prevented without blocking), not punitive, I'm not sure what this premature block is for. pandakekok9 08:09, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
I agree that blocks aren't punitive. But here we see that user was warned on April 16 with a bunch of filed deleted at the same time.Then he made new uploads on April 26-28, warned again and even proposed to be processed on AN with no action. The last upload was on May 7 with new record on AN (here). Then user appeared and said he was sorry, but still didn't understand what was the problem. He says that photo was taken by his friend but you can't just upload others' work here. So, despite being sorry, the user continues to upload files without paying attention to the licensing rules and acknowledging the substance of his mistake, that's why I used block as a prevention for new uploads, and the block time could be used to better review COM:L. But I am free to have my decision reviewed by any other sysop. rubin16 (talk) 08:20, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
I agree with rubin16. --Yuraily Lic (talk) 10:33, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Block request[edit]

Hi, Could someone close Commons:Deletion requests/File:AmongUs CrewsonaSeven.png and block Fallencow30 for trolling please?
They've vandalised Túrelios talkpage as well as generally making idiotic edits since they've been here. (Túrelio did revert the vandalism but good faith is unfortunately being wasted on this editor) Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 21:44, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

  • I closed the DR w/o seeing this. I have also observed the strange edits of this user and was following their activity. If they continue in the same direction this will inevitably be considered a vandalism account. Time to stop, NOW! --E4024 (talk) 21:56, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
  • E4024 I've only just spotted this myself but they were given a 2nd chance in February after being blocked by Nat for one day (very generous imho), I don't know whether they're trolling or whether it's simply a young user but either way IMHO they;re NOTHERE and no amount of blocks will ever improve their behaviour. –Davey2010Talk 22:14, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
