Hey, I noticed that you blocked User:Sox589 as a sockpuppet, and I believe User:Jones876 is the same person. They both have similarly structured usernames and are reverting election maps to old shapes without any reasoning. -- Politicsfan4 (talk) 03:37, 13 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Politicsfan4, thanks. Keep finding them and I'll keep bopping them. Huntster (t @ c) 05:09, 13 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Europa image ok?[edit]

Hello Huntster - image seems NASA and OK - but not entirely sure - worth a look? → File:PIA25696-Europa-JupiterMoon-20220929.jpg - Thanks in advance - and - Stay Safe and Healthy ǃǃ - ̃ Drbogdan (talk) 13:05, 15 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Drbogdan, see my edits here. You cannot use the PD-NASA license template if the image is licensed as Creative Commons. It is strange that I was unable to find this image in the JunoCam image processing gallery, though. Huntster (t @ c) 14:48, 15 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello sockpuppet of has made a new account and is yet again going all out on reverting all the maps to the old versions after we just worked forever on creating the new maps Putitonamap98 (talk) 23:21, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Putitonamap98 Blocked. You're welcome to post to my talk page, but I would encourage you to also post to Commons:Administrators' noticeboard in case I'm not around. This type of behaviour warrants immediate response. Huntster (t @ c) 23:26, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Huntster sorry i think he actually just made another account
ugh, this is getting ridiculous Putitonamap98 (talk) 23:51, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Putitonamap98 Blocked. I honestly don't know what to do about this. Huntster (t @ c) 23:55, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply] Putitonamap98 (talk) 19:55, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wouldn't blocking their ip address make things easier? Putitonamap98 (talk) 01:26, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Putitonamap98 I'll be blunt, I have no idea how to go about that. When I'm blocking these usernames, the option to block from the IP is not available. This is definitely not my area of experience. That said, because IP hopping is far too easy (or simply because they may be on a dynamic IP), long term blocking of IPs is not really done since it can adversely effect innocent users who may later inherit that IP.

Ok I have about had it with this person, I gave up on reverting over and over again and decided to go ahead and just upload the new shape files separately and go into the election articles and put them in and i will be damned he actually made an account on english wikipedia and is now manually reverting the maps. this is just getting out of hand. i thought it would have been good idea because i thought he was ip banned from other wikis. at this point we should just add protection to the election articles specifically the ones he keeps targeting like the gubernatorial and senate articles of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia, and Arizona. I have already alerted admins on english wiki about this extreme case of vandalism.
Here is the account he made so you can ban it also Putitonamap98 (talk) 22:07, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
which one do you suggest we use? Putitonamap98 (talk) 22:24, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
When you consider how protection works, the only (non-)option would be full admin-only protection, since they have shown they are willing to make enough edits to bypass the minimum edits needed to bypass the semi-protection minimums. There's no good way to approach this. Huntster (t @ c) 22:29, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Putitonamap98 Blocked on both sites. While I understand the idea behind uploading a copy of the image, that just means there are now *two* targets for them to go after. So, I would suggest this is not a good course of action. Huntster (t @ c) 22:25, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
He can not target these new files because he can't just simply hit the revert button in rapid succession
unlike the old files i really didn't want to do this because it takes forever but it was the only way to stop him on commons but now that he can also just keep making accounts on english wiki we really need to protect those pages so new users can not just edit them right away or atleast make them pending review protected. this would be needed for a few of the ones the he likes to go after like the pennsylvania, ohio, georgia, and arizona articles specifically the years 1970 through 2022. that's the one way to stop it otherwise i am going to lose it because i worked forever on those maps Putitonamap98 (talk) 22:31, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yep, I understand. I'm no longer active on, but let me know if I can chime in with anything on the ANI post. Huntster (t @ c) 22:34, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
He took a break but he's back now can we please put a review lock on these pages now? Putitonamap98 (talk) 19:45, 8 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
update: he has been block but i realize now reporting his accounts are pointless, he appears to always make an account just to do 5 reverts then abandons that account and creates and new one every time. Putitonamap98 (talk) 20:54, 8 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's not really pointless. The idea could be to make a handful of edits, get auto-confirmed status, then let the account be a sleeper for future activation. Reporting and blocking is always better than not, and is always appreciated. Huntster (t @ c) 21:47, 8 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
