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.

Merging accounts[edit]

With the recently added feature of multilanguage use of one account through various wikimedia projects, I'd love to have my useraccounts merged to one basic account which is https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gebruiker:Grifo. I don't know whether this is possible or if this is the right place to ask, but I couldn't find any info on this.

Other accounts of me include: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mr_Grifo and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Grifo.

Files uploaded by me are: File:AZ Vrouwen landskampioen 2008.jpg, File:Heerenveen - AZ Johan Cruijff Schaal 2009.jpg, File:AZ - NEC 21-08-11.jpg. Can these also be creditted to this single one account? Grifo (talk) 19:53, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

User:Grifo -- "Single Unified Login" has been around since at least 2009. They're more likely to know what to do at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Unified_login ... -- AnonMoos (talk) 07:24, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Garbera levente sockpuppet to block[edit]

Please block Kis foltos (talk · contribs), a sockpuppet of the cross-wiki vandal Garbera levente (talk · contribs). (The sockpuppetry was established at en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Garbera levente/Archive based on Wikipedia edits, but there's also sufficient evidence on Commons, including the fact that both accounts have uploaded photos of the same cat.) Garbera levente has a history of copyright violations, and at least some of Kis foltos's uploads here look to be falsely attributed, so it would also be a good idea to carefully review (or just indiscriminately delete) all their uploads. —Psychonaut (talk) 15:16, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done Blocked and nuked the cat per Cyberduck icon.png It looks like a duck to me and scope. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:19, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Forgot to mention: other uploads seem to be ok, mostly that is. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 01:24, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Unjustified block[edit]

Aloha! On 9/1 I blocked Bull-Doser (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user for two weeks to get his/her attention. Usually Bull-Doser doesn't reply, which may have led to his block on enwiki (AFAIK). At the time applying a block seemed like a good idea. The block worked, we have communication with Bull-Doser. In summary: I blocked Bull-Doser against blocking policy. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:56, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=rights&page=User%3ABull-Doser – @Hedwig in Washington: Can you please clarify: Is the block alone unjustified or are both the block and the removal of "autopatroller" right unjustified? You've taken two actions against the user, yet reversed only one of those actions, so I'm wondering if you believe that both actions or only one of the actions is unjustified. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 19:42, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Block only. IMHO that is. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 00:40, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
