I am the proud owner of a TUSC account!

THANK YOU!!!!![edit]

@Huntster: I'm so proud of you for blocking that dude that insulted my favorite typeface!

p.s. He called me a SHE for no apparent reason at all. User:The SVG Effect 21:32, 27 June 2020


Hi Huntster, Thanks for your swift action with the IP, Just wondering but do the IPs DRs really need to be kept?,
In this specific case he's obviously a troll so I don't see why the DRs should continue to remain?, Obviously if that was a well-intentioned editor who made an incorrect DR then I'd agree with keeping but troll IPs is where I draw the line,
Obviously you're the admin and you know best :),
Thanks again for your swift action it's much appreciated, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 01:33, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Davey2010, I'm working my way through them. I'm just old and slow. Huntster (t @ c) 01:34, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Hi, Oh no sorry I wasn't asking you to close them - I was basically asking if they should be deleted instead ?, Many thanks, –Davey2010Talk 01:35, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Davey2010, there's no real reason to delete them. I'm simply closing as no valid rationale for deletion. Huntster (t @ c) 01:37, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
I 110% unequivocally disagree with that but then again I pretty much disagree with every Commons policy there is (when it comes to trolls/socks) so I will say no more, Thanks again for your help, Take care, –Davey2010Talk 01:40, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Davey2010, you are welcome to request this at the admin board or elsewhere, it simply isn't a step I'm willing to take at this time. Huntster (t @ c) 01:42, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Blocking of IP[edit]

Hello Hunster. Thanks for your work on anti-vandalism. However, I see you block 2a04:4a43:4c7f:a7dc:a458:d936:1fad:d4c2 (talk · contributions · Number of edits · recent activity · block log · User rights log · uploads · Global account information) indefinitely. Though the disruption made by the IP is rather huge, it is not appropriate to block an IP address indefinitely. Because it may hurt other innocent user and they cannot edit Commons forever. Maybe a blocking length of six months or a year would be better, regards. --A1Cafel (talk) 06:21, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

This is an individual IPv6 address, not a range, so has extremely low likelihood of impinging on any other user. I'll dial back to six months, though, so it does eventually clear. Huntster (t @ c) 05:11, 3 July 2020 (UTC)


Sorry to bother you. I made a gallery dedicated to flags, I had added a disclaimer about incidental images of flags. Is this a okay disclaimer or it needs work? SpinnerLaserz (talk) 02:41, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

SpinnerLaserz, I don't suppose I see anything wrong with the disclaimer, though I'm not sure how necessary it is considering its a personal user page. IMO it would only be an issue if, for some reason, it was relocated as a main gallery page. Also, for your thin line page, I'd like to mention that the flag for dispatchers was originally the yellow one (being a primary color to match up with blue and red), but since it became so commonly co-oped by other types, the gold line has become the defacto flag for dispatchers for some time now. Some links with other examples you might find of interest: and Huntster (t @ c) 06:20, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. I had to be sure. SpinnerLaserz (talk) 06:58, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
@Huntster: I think me adding of flag categories to the incidental pictures is a extemely huge misunderstanding of COM:CAT. SpinnerLaserz (talk) 20:04, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
I'm really not sure what you're trying to say here. What part is the misunderstanding? Don't add flag categories to images that incidentally feature a flag in them, just as you wouldn't add a category about windows simply because one happened to be present in a shot.
