Werxa[edit]

Werxa is an obvious Sol-lol sock. I can share the evidence privately if needed. I really don't like forumshopping, but I requested CU almost a week ago and no CU has been run. No CU asked me to mail the evidence. So, forumshop. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:27, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

This user asked for advice on my talk page here. I have literally zero case insight, and offered generic observations in a civil way. I am sure that any CU would prefer to see a sock puppeteer reform or be offered a clean start if their past history is socking but not targeted harassment. That may be what is going on here and an off-wiki chat may get to a better place.

Thanks -- (talk) 18:38, 24 October 2018 (UTC)
Sol-lol is manipulative, don't fall for that. If they want a clean start, that's not my problem, but this is not the way. Also, an anonymous clean start is out of the question imho as they need to be patrolled for copyvios and license forging. Also, eswiki is involved. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:46, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Don’t how a Hispanophone-only sockmaster Sol-lol managed to learn English, but Werxa has characteristically Sol-lolish interests (such as es:Beng Zeng) and similar editing habits. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:08, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

Some Sol-lol socks have spoken English before. Possibly machine translated as it doesn't always make sense. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 04:24, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure what could be done at this point.. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 19:18, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Indefinite block for User:Falk2[edit]

For reference, I just changed A.Savin's of Falk2 from two weeks to indefinite. Falk2 was blocked for vandalism after this thread in the German Forum, because he removed categories from his own images as revenge during a conflict. Falk2 has always been problematic and had a bad temper, but as reaction to A.Savin's block, he posted a long rant which included the words "Im echten Leben würde ich Die eine kleben", translated "In real life I would hit you". This kind of threat has absolutely no place on Commons. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 21:10, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

If I saw it earlier, I'd send that threat of physical harm to emergency@ WMF. — regards, Revi 09:54, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
-revi, just for the record: The German colloquial term "eine kleben" means a slap in the face and has not primarily an assaulting but more an insulting intention (if seen by others), see en:Slapping (strike). --Achim (talk) 15:02, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
