This is a place where users can communicate with administrators, or administrators with one another. You can report vandalism, problematic users, or anything else that needs an administrator's intervention. Do not report child pornography or other potentially illegal content here; e-mail legal-reports@wikimedia.org instead. If reporting threatened harm to self or others also email emergency@wikimedia.org.

Note

  • Keep your report as short as possible, but include links as evidence.
  • Remember to sign and date all comments using four tildes (~~~~), which translates into a signature and a time stamp.
  • It is usually appropriate to notify the user(s) concerned. {{subst:Discussion-notice|noticeboard=COM:AN/U|thread=|reason=}} is available for this.
  • It is important to keep a cool head, especially when responding to comments against you or your edits. Personal attacks and disruptive comments only escalate a situation; Please try to remain civil with your comments.
  • Administrators: Please make a note if a report is dealt with, to avoid unnecessary responses by other admins.

Mehdi ghaed (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user

This user has a long history of copyright violation and again uploads derivative works and questionable photos without metadata. SlowManifesto (talk) 22:50, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Block and delete all three images. All three {{own}} are forgeries even understood as a “photo shot in person”. Obvious generation loss—grabbed from other digital sources—hence abominable quality of resulting JPEGs. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 09:56, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
✓ Done Files deleted and user blocked but able to use talk page for unblock requests. @SlowManifesto: Thank you for the report. Green Giant (talk) 10:49, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

سپهر آریایی[edit]

سپهر آریایی (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user

The user uploads pictures from the web without permission. SlowManifesto (talk) 12:21, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done All files already deleted. Last warning sent. Please block if more copyvios appear. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:37, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
This is his suckpuppet. SlowManifesto (talk) 13:56, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Admins, عباس بشیری (talk · contributions · Number of edits · Global account information) is indefblocked in fa.Wikipedia. Let’s remove one more sock from Commons too. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:52, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

I've indef'd both accounts as we have a case of socking here (see File:بنی صدر.png and File:بنی صدر به همراه رجوی و خلبان معزی پس از ترک ایران و ورود به فرانسه.jpg). --AFBorchert (talk) 19:05, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Unfairly accused of Sockpuppeting[edit]

I was blocked indefinitely for being a sockpuppet less than 24 hours after being registered. I am an independent user that happens to use the same ISP as another user, but I am operating of my own accord and not simply by someone else's instruction. I want to prove this, but I don't know what information I need to acquire to do so. Any attempts to make contact with the admins who blocked me have been refused and they won't take me seriously. Please help me remove my block. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Osmostrix (talk • contribs) 06:41, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

@Osmostrix:, if admins don't take you seriously maybe OTRS (article) could work. They normally check if people own the copyright they say they own, but they have the tools to identify people.
Your user page says "The One and Only". I think I saw the same text on a sock a while ago. Perhaps that has something to do with it? - Alexis Jazz 07:03, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
This person has troubles in en.Wikipedia, not here. Wikipedia topic ban for Osmostrix (talk · contribs)? Noone likes repeated soliciting, including the Commons community. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:12, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
 Not done. This is problem of en.wiki, not Commons. Do not bring problems from other projects into Commons. If you think, that you were unfairly blocked, please write about that in meta. You have no editing restrictions in Commons, you have neither deleted edits nor warnings, your block log is empty, so here's nothing we can do. Taivo (talk) 11:38, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Fcb.foot[edit]

Fcb.foot (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user

The user uploads non-free logos and photos without permission. SlowManifesto (talk) 17:46, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done. Fcb.foot is blocked for 3 months, his/her uploads are mostly deleted, some are nominated for deletion. Taivo (talk) 21:20, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
