User:Debiit[edit]

They have continued to upload copyvios after final warning and previous blocks (×2) 4nn1l2 (talk) 02:38, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

 Not done Only 2 new uploads (and 4 deleted uploads) after expiration of the previous block. I think that further block would be unnecessary at this time. – Kwj2772 (talk) 14:40, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
@4nn1l2: ✓ Done by @EugeneZelenko, blocked for six months.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 16:20, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

محمود الطالب[edit]

This user has a long history of copyright violations and two blocks so far. Now I see many more files which are apparent copyvios. Another block may be warranted, but I'd like someone familiar with Arabic to have a look and try to discuss the specific problems with them first. Guanaco (talk) 05:32, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

@Dyolf77: Could you please have a look at this. 4nn1l2 (talk) 22:57, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

User:Intisar Ali[edit]

User has been uploading large numbers of copyright violations, continued to upload copyright violations after warning and removed a speedy deletion template. IronGargoyle (talk) 00:45, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold I've left him a message explaining some of the issues. He has many edits at Sindhi Wikipedia, and we don't have Sindhi translations of COM:L and other policy pages, so there may be a language barrier, although he does know at least some English. I would like to try being patient in this case, as I feel he could potentially become a valued contributor. Guanaco (talk) 20:28, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
That seems reasonable. My concern was primarily for the tendency towards heavy-volume uploading in the past by this editor and I don't believe there were any replies when this report was first filed. IronGargoyle (talk) 20:56, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

User:M669494[edit]

User has a history of copyright violations and has continued to upload copyright violations after final warning (see talk). IronGargoyle (talk) 19:01, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

I should add that these images are currently being used for vandalism on the Spanish Wikipedia, so prompt action would be appreciated. IronGargoyle (talk) 19:31, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
✓ Done. Blocked 45 days, all uploads deleted. Guanaco (talk) 20:01, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

File:Dragana Dujovic.jpg[edit]

File:Dragana Dujovic.jpg seems uploaded the third time. Please protect it from upload. Seems like there are socks used to upload it. Conduct SPI if necessary --✝iѵɛɳ२२४०†ลℓк †๏ мэ 08:42, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

 Not done All different images. (Of course, still likely copyvios.) Protecting would be counter-productive, as the images would probably just be uploaded under a different name that is not on anyone's watchlist. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 08:54, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Category:Sockpuppets of Jeff G.[edit]

Could someone please protect the non-existing Category:Sockpuppets of Jeff G. from being created again? Liza Veniza (or a copy-cat) made it twice, once in May and once today. As User:Jeff G. is a trusted contributor here I suggest that this category should only made made in the actual event of sockouppetry from their part and make it to "create=Administrators only" so Liza Veniza (and imposters) can't recreate it. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 16:59, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done and ✓ Done. Guanaco (talk) 17:12, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
@Guanaco: Thank you!   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 17:14, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

User talk:Oleg3280[edit]

On behalf of @Oleg3280: please semi-protect User talk:Oleg3280 for much longer than a week, evidently that is necessary. For background, please see Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/Blocks and protections/Archive 23#User talk:Oleg3280.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 21:36, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. Oleg3280 (talk) 21:40, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
And, if possible, full protect this files: File:Am C boxes.jpg, File:PentatonicBoxes.PNG, File:PentetonikAm.JPG (Transferred from ru.wikipedia). Thanks. Oleg3280 (talk) 21:48, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
✓ Done Semi-protected the user talk page for three months for now. Semi-protected the files for a year. Sebari – aka Srittau (talk) 22:51, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
@Oleg3280, Srittau: Thank you both.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 22:56, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

User:Gdsg44[edit]

This seems to be a sock-puppet I have seen pop up before (e.g., User:Vhvyghu). Adds spam copyvio images of clothing (also mostly of Asian women) from various sketchy eCommerce sites. IronGargoyle (talk) 02:36, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

User:Jonathan7375[edit]

The user regarding continuously uploads images of food packaging which exceeds threshold of originality after numerous warning. The user also attempted to ignore these warnings by removing the warnings templates on the user's talk page. Maybe a block for a week is suitable?廣九直通車 (talk) 09:03, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

@廣九直通車: He disputed the speedy deletion on the file talk pages, saying in Japanese that he took the photos with his iPhone. Clearly he doesn't understand the problem. COM:PACKAGING doesn't have a Japanese translation, so this might be an issue of language barrier. Can you explain the exact issue to him in Japanese? Guanaco (talk) 09:19, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, I can only read some kanji for Japanese , not for the most commonly used hiragana. What about inviting a Japanese-speaking user to explain the issue to the user regarding?廣九直通車 (talk) 11:41, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@Miya, Whym, Y.haruo: Could one of you talk to him about this? Guanaco (talk) 11:46, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@廣九直通車:I thought that it was deleted because I use photos on the Internet. I wonder if it means "Product Packaging is copyright-protected" ? Jonathan7375
