Another Nipponese Dog Calvero sock[edit]

@-revi: Please see here, although again I would advise against deleting their uploads as they seem within scope. This time I didn't tag their user page but anyone who is willing may. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 08:13, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Was already reported on Meta-wiki by Lanwi1, but stewards were (and are) slow until I pinged them wrt this specific sock. @Donald Trung: please, don’t obfuscate internal links; speak straightforward UTF-8-encoded wiki code. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 17:36, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
Well, I saw this just now, which means your ping did not work. (Contrary to what is advertised on my user page, I still receive pings, but only via email.) — regards, Revi 12:57, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
The reason it didn't work is that mentions only trigger a ping if they are done in an edit consisting of a signed comment. This doesn't work. There's nothing magical about Template:Ping. LX (talk, contribs) 23:44, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
Checkmark This section is resolved and can be archived. If you disagree, replace this template with your comment. Locked by stewards. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 17:36, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Edits of administrative tags of the account of User:Solomon203[edit]

Can an adminstrator look into this edit? As far as I know, removal of administrative templates can only be removed or altered by an administrator. Possibly, the page needs an edit protection. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 17:17, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

The edit is good; it is removal of en.Wikipedian crap which initially deceived even myself. Look on Meta-wiki, and also Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User_problems #User:Fegggbgbbdfbv. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 01:44, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

FreshCorp619 sockpuppetry[edit]

FreshCorp619 uploading images here and adding them as IP in enwiki, where he's blocked: upload, diff; upload, diff. Three years ago, Magog the Ogre already blocked some of his other socks. You can see that all these accounts are confirmed socks of FreshCorp619 in enwiki. --Triggerhippie4 (talk) 15:51, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

FreshCorp619 was warned in 2015 about the sockpuppetry issue. Transfer Point was created in 2014, before the warning, and has never edited the Commons. Unless you are aware of another account that has been active after January 2015, recently, FreshCorp619 does not appear to be engaging in sockpuppetry on the Commons. IP block evasion on en.wiki would need to be handled there. Эlcobbola talk 16:05, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
I do see Supreme Dragon and Wrestlingring are confirmed socks on en.wiki, and have edited the Commons more recently (although both would be technically stale). However, neither account appears to have uploaded copyright violations, which was the disruption at issue in 2015. As "alternative accounts are not forbidden, so long as they are not used in violation of the policies" (CheckUser policy), there's no action to be taken here unless these accounts begin disruptive editing on the Commons. Эlcobbola talk 16:30, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
@Elcobbola: Look at his contributions. Most of his uploads are reverted, and he's currently edit-warring again. This is a long term abuser, creating accounts for years, come on. His main account here wasn't blocked just because there was no proof back then (see link in the opening post). --Triggerhippie4 (talk) 16:02, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
Where is he edit warring on the Commons? Where is the disruption on the Commons? Accounts and diffs, please; I'm more than happy to run checks and block if there's an issue on the Commons. Эlcobbola talk 16:07, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
@Elcobbola: Edit-warring: link. And more importantly, is user allowed to edit when all his known accounts were indefinitely blocked on Commons? --Triggerhippie4 (talk) 16:32, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
One revert after an initial change is not (yet) edit-warring. As I said, "alternative accounts are not forbidden, so long as they are not used in violation of the policies" (CheckUser policy). SPVII DrFresh26 had uploaded copyright violations (something about which FreshCorp619 had been warned), so was indeed an alternative account being used in violation of our policies and blocked accordingly. Sockpuppetry is, by definition, abusive use of multiple accounts. As long as an alternative account is not editing disruptively, there is no violation, even though that practice is discouraged. This is why, for example, Supreme Dragon and Wrestlingring are not blocked ("all his known accounts were indefinitely blocked on Commons" is untrue). Yet again: where is the disruption on the Commons? Эlcobbola talk 16:46, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
@Elcobbola: All of his accounts known at the time were blocked. SPVII DrFresh26 was blocked for copyright violations, and the rest were blocked for abusing multiple accounts. NovaFlyer7000 didn't even had an edit. Supreme Dragon and Wrestlingring were not blocked because they appeared years later and didn't catch anyone's eye. And FreshCorp619 had copyright violations warning after the block. --Triggerhippie4 (talk) 17:29, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
I've quoted you the CheckUser policy several times; I note you do not explain how the NovaFlyer7000 block was in line with that policy, so this appears premised on OTHERSTUFF rather than policy (and besides NovaFlyer7000 did edit, upload copyvios). I've also asked you a question several times (where is the disruption on the Commons?), but you've again not provided an answer. I think we're done here. Эlcobbola talk 18:15, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
@Elcobbola: "where is the disruption on the Commons?" In my last post, I gave a link showing he violated copyright again after the block. And my main point is this: a user who was indefinitely blocked cannot avoid it by simply switching accounts. --Triggerhippie4 (talk) 18:23, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
FreshCorp619 has never been blocked. We are talking about sockpuppetry--the disruptive use of alternative accounts. FreshCorp619 is the main account and has not had an upload deleted since 2015. Show me the disruption caused by an alternative account that is not currently blocked. Blocks are preventative, not punitive; what disruption would blocking FreshCorp619 prevent on the Commons?

@Pełna Moc: Bardzo często pliki o małej rozdzielczości przesyłane na Commons przez nowych użytkowników z innych wiki (np. z Polskiej Wikipedii) naruszają prawa autorskie, dlatego został włączony filtr, który je odrzuca i którego Ty padłeś ofiarą. Niestety, straty uboczne. Należy wtedy przesłać taki plik bezpośrednio z Commons, co, jak widzę, zrobiłeś. BTW. To nie jest dobra strona na zgłaszanie takich problemów. Jeśli już, to COM:AN. --jdx Re: 01:45, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

User:Faraps[edit]

Faraps (talk · contributions · Move log · block log · uploadsblock user

Faraps is the new sock (see also Category:Sockpuppets of AntonyFragakis) of AntonyFragakis who has been blocked permanently for uploading unfree files. AntonyFragakis has a current 6 months block for sockpuppetry and copyright violations in the Greek-language WP [1] and the new sock, user Faraps, has been reported to the Admins Noticeboard there [2], and blocked indefinitely [3] as a sock of AntonyFragakis. Thru this account, AntonyFragakis also tries to bypass his permanent block at Commons and his current block at the Greek-language WP by creating a "personal" fake-article-like category [4] because of his inability to "upgrade" his AntonyFragakis user pages. ——Chalk19 (talk) 22:17, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
