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.

The user has uploaded several images, that have been deleted as copyvios in the past. Their newest upload is File:ElishaKriisatBeverlyHills.jpg, claiming on en-Wiki "which is my property and under licensed by me" (in the article's history, where it is used). However, the image seems to be a cropped version of [1] or [2] - but I am no photographer. As the user is on their last warning due to previous copyvio uploads, it would be great if a more experienced editor could double-check the situation. Maybe the user just doesn't understand copyright. GermanJoe (talk) 23:43, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

  • ✓ Done Acc blocked, image deleted, undel requests denied. ~riley (talk) 23:48, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Smoothest Aashu[edit]

Blocked for plenty of socking a enwp. Could use a search, file del, block here too. I tagged (clumsily -- will get it right next time -- first time using that script) several. Cheers! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 06:55, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

And please don't overlook File:Kya Main hoon hero- Smoothest Aashu.ogg. Consider deleting it first. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 09:44, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

  • ✓ Done nuked the uploads, blocked the account. Just our every day spammer. Natuur12 (talk) 09:48, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Many thanks, Natuur12. Yes, just another garden-variety spammer. Still a few out there when you search the name. Thanks again, my friend. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 10:19, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Deleted the spam uploads but it seems that the accounts have been abandened a long time ago but wow. He doesn't know when to quit. Natuur12 (talk) 19:30, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for getting the rest, Natuur12. Speaking of rest, Smoothest Aashu should give it one and maybe focus on singing lessons or something more constructive than self-promotion. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 22:41, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
✓ Done I tagged all sockpuppets and created a category for them. My experience says, that we will meet him again sometimes. Taivo (talk) 09:50, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
