Denwalker12[edit]

Another one of these helpline scam spammers. Please block and nuke. LX (talk, contribs) 13:28, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done Account indefinitely blocked, uploads nuked. --jdx Re: 14:05, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! Janiferlewis and Andrewbrown1 also need revision deletion of the user talk pages and blocking, and Witwickysam needs blocking and nuking. LX (talk, contribs) 16:53, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
✓ Done I blocked all three indefinitely. Spamming reverted. Taivo (talk) 18:17, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Three uploaders -- same photos[edit]

Please take a look at Ambb2003 (talk · contribs) aka "Crystal Lagoons", Ferquorum (talk · contribs) and Fernando Meza Albornoz (talk · contribs) who seem to be making promotional uploads for "Crystal Lagoons" property development. Some images were speedied, others have been sent to Deletion Nomination. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:34, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi, These are suspicious enough that a check-user is needed. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:33, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
✓ Done. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:42, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
ping Yann, The CU came back stale. Ellin Beltz (talk) 16:46, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Cssmobileapps[edit]

Continues to do nothing but spam in spite of being warned. LX (talk, contribs) 17:03, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done. I am today happy, so I blocked him/her only for month. Spamming reverted. Taivo (talk) 18:11, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Burtonskill & HappyTape socks[edit]

Hi, On the 16th Burtonskill had uploaded a BDSM image however due to it being speedied he then decided to create another account HappyTape which I assume was to avoid having his images deleted,
BK has since gone back to uploading with the other account,
The images were the same and HappyTape has been repeatedly warned to stop uploading copyvios however they've simply contiuned regardless,
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 15:08, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Yann warned HappyTape and I deleted last remaining upload of Burtonskill as copyright violation. Neither of them has now any edits. Maybe this is enough at moment, but if somebody wants to block, that's OK for me. Taivo (talk) 11:05, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
Okie dokie thanks for your help Taivo - Always appreciated :), –Davey2010Talk 15:58, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
At least we need a check-user, and block one of the account, if it is a sock. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:14, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Mitosofire[edit]

Mitosofire (talk · contributions · Number of edits · recent activity · block log · User rights log · uploads · Global account information) On the file File:Dyl.jpg that Mitosofire uploaded, the file correctly failed the automated FlickrReview. The user then claimed it passed review, supposedly passed by Denniss. However, looking at the page history, Denniss never touched the file. I believe that this kind of action violates some of the most basic parts of Wikimedia Commons and should result in a block of some sort. Elisfkc (talk) 04:23, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done. I blocked him/her for 6 months, because this was his/her second block during current year. Taivo (talk) 09:20, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Kaunainchandiha[edit]

Kaunainchandiha (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user – vandalism only account (here and on English Wikipedia). Keeps vandalising Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Kaunainchandiha. Please block and nuke their uploads. Thanks, LX (talk, contribs) 11:52, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done I blocked him for a week before I saw this topic. And Ankry deleted his uploads. --jdx Re: 13:43, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
