Files uploaded by G – undeletion request[edit]

The request has been closed, I cannot comment there. You used a spelling error by me as an argument against undeletion? And then invoked Godwin's Law? --𝔊 (Gradzeichen DiſkTalk) 23:20, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

@G: I didn’t want the request to be closed early; please, don’t blame me for it. It was you to recklessly misspell a name of the same corporation presumably everyone here should know, as claimed or assumed by yourself (note I didn’t quibble about “wepository” – you haven’t necessarily be proficient in English). I, indeed, only commented about inconsistency of such a position. In fact, I am rather °-positive and even spent no less than a full work hour to solve problems of a guy with asterisk in the nick, but:
  • dislike wobbling between two nicks or more – choose a permanent one at last;
  • dislike litigation over a one-letter nick;
  • dislike nicks which are obviously unsearchable;
and—relevant to this very topic—
  • dislike cryptic headings like “UDEL G”, especially where text doesn’t contain a single link.
The last thing might have something to do with [[Category:]] tags. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:24, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Можно поинтересоваться, из какой программы/ОС вы взяли File:Octets_in_CP866_ordered_by_nibbles.png? Меня интересует последняя строка F, которая отличается от собственно CP 866.--Luboslov Yezykin (talk) 23:36, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Peace and Love[edit]

3 users against 2, does not consensus, that's for sure (especially without admin), and we are not in a war; "faction", "Camulogene77's warring", you believe on a battlefield? Don't you see enough horror?

Now, it will be good to find an intelligent compromise. - In the {{Maps}} template, for non-translatable languages, it returns {{Label}}, so it does not change anything for them. there are hundreds of titles to translate, the work is colossal, good luck but if {{Label}} is used for the forgotten, all is well. In this case, it will be wise to add an argument of type: "p" for plural (the translations) and "s" for singular ({{Label}}) (eg if a city has only one bridge), it will answer everything.

Is the problem fixed? Or should I prepare my aircraft carrier? Camulogene77 (talk) 09:57, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

@Camulogene77: who is the second in your faction? I saw only you alone edit-warring for six weeks, and in the last case you are doing it against a supermajority, if not even consensus. I do not have a strong opinion about “an argument of type”, my strong opinion is only against indiscriminate {{Label}} gibberish in every heading (esp. given how map is rendered in Russian). Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:30, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

"the second in your faction?", "edit-warring for six weeks", "supermajority", but what are you talking about? you do not have an opinion on an argument, seriously? And "map is rendered in Russian", but what are you talking about? Are you sure everything is fine? Camulogene77 (talk) 10:56, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

For third-party inspectors: “edit warring” includes this, this, and this. Other problems are explained in user talk: Camulogene77 #Scotland, category talk: Multilingual tags: Gallery headings, and already mentioned talk:Mediterranean Sea.
@Camulogene77, if you are not happy with the current {{Maps}}, {{Images}} etc, then either edit these templates or appeal to the community asking to stop their deployment. Again, four editors are against inappropriate singular, and only you alone remove custom templates and place the gibberish instead. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:38, 29 January 2018 (UTC)


Hi there[edit]

Hi there, Incnis. Answer to your question "isn’t it a sarcasm?" No, it isn't. The sign :) shows it is something to make people smile. (If you would like to see what "I" think could be sarcasm, see: Commons:Deletion requests/File:Tulsi Bhagat with Satdeep Gill at TTT2018 (B&W) - Fortune JP Palace 2018-01-26.jpg please; they have written it in bold so that no-one would miss... :) If I'm not taking too much of your time, let me tell you something personal: I hate to let people understand my age, gender, social condition etc but I wish to give a clue. I spent a short time of my not so long life as a teacher at an all-male school. (I mean all the kids were male, but there were men and women in the staff.) When I saw those adolescents bored of my lectures (most of the time :) I used to spit a sentence that would include a "magic word", like "sex" or "naked women" that would wake up even the snoring double-decker (class repeating older guy) at the backside, like "What about La Maja Desnuda?" and attract their attention. Please let's not jump to any misunderstandings that neither I'm a teacher (for some reason my teaching adventure went short :) nor anybody a student. Maybe this "personal part" of the talk is totally out of place. If you wish just consider the initial part ending in "no, it isn't". Take care, colleague, and cheers! --E4024 (talk) 07:22, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

File:Sommeiller1 più alta.jpg[edit]

Hi, if you disagree with a license, please don't remove it, but nominate the file for deletion instead. Same for the 'author' and the 'source' field. If you disagree, don't empty those fields. Replace it by correct content or by {{unknown|author}} / {{unknown|source}} and if you think there is a copyright problem, nominate the file for deletion. Jcb (talk) 11:39, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

@Jcb: I haven’t much experience with condition where a file is potentially eligible for Commons but correct values for author and source are not evident. Can you point me to guidelines or discussions about manner of action to effect there? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:48, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Actually it's not so complex. If you think there is a problem, press the 'nominate for deletion' link from the left menu and tell what the problem is. If you see erroneous 'author' and 'source' information and you can correct it, feel free to do so. But don't empty those fields, because then they will clutter various maintenance categories. Jcb (talk) 11:51, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
@Jcb evades answer to my question. Of course, “various maintenance categories” are cluttered just because Commons has too much dirt. This dirt will not decompose with edits like Revision of File:La_bandiera.jpg and Revision of File:Sommeiller1_più_alta.jpg. Where are relevant guidelines or discussions, again? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:58, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
You are frustrating maintenance with your actions. You are adding workload, these edits are nett negative to the project. Don't do it. I have clearly explaned what to do instead. Jcb (talk) 12:47, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Again, evasion of my question. I removed evident Annabosazza’s lies based on Commons: Licensing. Jcb reverted my edits based on a personal opinion of a sysop preoccupied with maintenance categories. IMHO enough said for a reasonably minded third-party reviewer. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:58, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
A review by another admin of this exact point has been done recently. Jcb (talk) 13:06, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

New British Empire map[edit]


I have uploaded a new map with a firmly established title and summary, and is backed up by links, so that it cannot be narrowed down like File:The British Empire.png on which it is based. The new File:The British Empire (including Crown Dependencies, Crown Colonies-Overseas Territories, Protectorates, Military Administrations).png is based on the broad definition of the "British Empire" and includes Crown Dependencies, Crown Colonies, British Protectorates, British Mandates and British Military Administrations. I hope this other user does not contest this map. Please feel free to edit, if there are missing areas and corrections need to be made, with verifiable sources and links, so it is not contested and narrowed down.

Kindest regards, Maphobbyist (talk) 21:09, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Not interested much in historical imperialism, more in users exiled from the encyclopedia empire. Edit warring is only a misdemeanor unless aggravated with sock puppeteering. @Maphobbyist: I hope you are wise enough to never use alternative accounts for this end here, on Commons. For some of such accounts it is not difficult to discover that they belong to the same person. And also: I am no friend to nationalist/fundamentalist PoV pushers. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:51, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
I am not a sock puppet of User:Brythones, just because we happen to agree on the same topic. I am not an imperialist or push an imperialist POV agenda nor am I a fan of colonial empires. I just included sourced information based on the broader definition of the "British Empire" when particularly British Military Administrations are also included. While this new map includes a broader definition, the original maps includes a narrower definition. So they don't need to clash and they provide alternative definitions. In the end, neither map is unsourced fantasy-based original research, as they are both linked and are sourced. Thank you for your reply. Maphobbyist (talk) 22:17, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Well that's just petty of you to claim sockpuppetry. Compare our contribution histories (I'm sure there are times where it would be physically impossible for us to be the same person), or if you are serious take it up with an administrator. Brythones (talk) 23:18, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Cross paths the first time with one Brythones and didn’t have this acc in mind at all. What for this person came here, did I invite them to discuss virtual belongings of Maphobbyist? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 13:22, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

Technical questions[edit]

Dear Incnis Mrsi,
I was revered to you for some technical questions i have, so i hope you can help me out.
Currently i am uploading a lot of CC0 immages from the Dutch national Archives. Since there are over 300.000 of them i currently (at top peak) am using 5 laptop computers to do this with my Mr.Nostalgic accounmt. The problem is that every now and then i get a Anti Abuse limit warning and haveto wait for about 5 minutes or so. This is very disruptive for the programs that are uploading these immages. Do you know if there is some way, like say disabeling it for my IP, toswithc it off for say 2 months or so. I still have about 170.000 immages to upload and with max four computers working day and night it will take me at least two more months to upload. I have another 2 available, but then the warnings start to pop-up.
Another problem is catagorization. I have uploaded 20.000 immages of The Dutch Army in Indonesia that need to be catagorized. However, if i do a search, to use the catalog tool, i can only go back 10.000 files with the Wiki search engine. Do you know if this can be resolved or whom to contact for this problem?
Hopefuly you can help me out.

Do you think that a non-admin can move deletion requests made by a certain troll to the user space of that not established editor? --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 21:56, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

If you ask about me, then I acquired the privilege of redirectless move as a supplement to another thing (global rollback) to which I find almost no use since migration of interwiki to Wikidata. Unsure which Commons user group is least sufficient for this ability. And I used move-with-redlink not for combat only, but for purely peaceful ends as well. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 22:15, 10 February 2018 (UTC)


Incnis Mrsi, I received your email. AFAIK your talk page is not blocked and you may use it to discuss your block or appeal it. I'm not interested in engaging in such discussions off-wiki. You were edit warring. I suggest you sit out your block and consider how to avoid edit conflict. -- Colin (talk) 18:25, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

"Права личности" и стиль комментариев к правкам[edit]

Дорогой Иннокентий! Я высоко ценю Ваш вклад, однако не могу не отметить, что вот такой или такой способ комментировать правки считаю неприемлемым. Мне-то, в общем, всё равно, но совершенно неясно, какую полезную информацию из этого комментария почерпнут другие участники.

Теперь по сути Вашего изменения, которое я был вынужден отменить. В настоящее время (как и в 2010 году, когда я делал этот перевод) по-прежнему нет русскоязычной статья для термина w:en:Personality rights, и даже нет перевода эссе Commons:Personality rights. Яндекс-переводчик сейчас выдаёт мне единственный вариант перевода для "Personality rights" - а именно "права личности". Вот что нам дают другие онлайновые ресурсы:

  • - "права личности"
  • - "личные права", "права личности"
  • - "права индивидуальности", "право на личность"
  • - "личностные права", "личные неимущественные права"

Предложенного вами словосочетания "права индивидуальности" (равно как и "права имиджа") я нигде не встречал ранее, и сейчас нашёл только в одном источнике. По форме оно мне также кажется неграмотным. --Kaganer (talk) 13:26, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

@Kaganer: "личные права" видимо писал кто-то, плохо понимающий по-русски. «Имидж» я брал с multitran — убирайте, если не нравится, а против вариантов "личностные права" или "личные неимущественные права" я ничего не имею, но их нигде и не стояло. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 17:40, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
Правильно, таких вариантов в то время мне не встретилось. Я продублировал тему на форуме - пусть там тоже народ выскажется. Не хочу оставаться "законодателем мод". --Kaganer (talk) 17:54, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by মোমিনুর রশিদ[edit]

Hello. I kept File:শহীদ দিবস ২০১৫.jpg because it was in use. The logos are COM:De minimis, so there is no copyright violation. Photoshop processing does not mean it is a copyvio either. However, I could find the picture elsewhere on the web (, so I think it is actually a copyvio and I have finally deleted it. File:প্রেজেন্টেশন.jpg is out of scope imho, so I did not delete it for a copyright problem. Best regards, BrightRaven (talk) 16:25, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

Mona Elyamani, photoshopped?[edit]

File:IMG-20180130-WA0019.jpg, Commons:Deletion requests/File:IMG-20180130-WA0019.jpg

Another investigation..

That file was compressed with 77% quality. With a resolution of 768 × 1024 you can plausibly take this with any camera when configured to this resolution. With 77% quality and the contrast between the purple area and area with details, the artifacts do not surprise me. This does not explain why there is no EXIF. I found the filename to be odd, I know of no camera that creates such filenames by default. I suspect these filenames are the result Whatsapp.

The most likely scenario: she got a friend (or the company that makes the product she is holding??) to take her picture. The friend sends the picture to her using Whatsapp. Whatsapp lowers the quality and strips the EXIF. Mona uploads the picture to Commons.

It's also possible she is clumsy and sends the picture from one phone to another using Whatsapp, then uploads to Commons. But that's less likely.

Technically you could re-nominate the image because it would seem likely she got a friend to take the picture. Capturing the way she posed would be hard on a self-timer anyway. I don't think it's worth it, the friend probably "gave" the image to her through Whatsapp. I wouldn't want to bother OTRS with that, but technically you could.

We have 471 files that are or were named like this: Category:Files with IMG-date-WA in filename. Yes, I just created that category. - Alexis Jazz 22:23, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying although, predictably, I already know about the category—because watch problematic files—and your gallery as well. It has little merit to discuss Whatsapp and similar things with me – I am old-fashioned and don’t understand almost anything in it. And also… please, do not clutter talk pages with large-size graphics without a very convincing pretext. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 22:35, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
I don't know what you watch..
WhatsApp is used to send text messages, kind of like SMS, E-mail or a letter. So these files were sent from one device/person to another and WhatsApp as a company was in between (like the postal services), scaling the image to save bandwidth. That's all you really need to know about these, it might help in some cases to track the origin of a file. But if this is too much, forget what I said. You don't have to do anything with this. Populating that category wasn't trivial as you can't search for these filenames. It's clearly completely thankless work though. You had already seen the category but you have absolutely no idea how it was populated. (yeah, with cat-a-lot.. but how did I find the images) Or maybe you do know and I'm just wasting your time. - Alexis Jazz 23:52, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: did you tweak Cat-a-lot to work on ? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:17, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
No, you made the user-space gallery namely for running Cat-a-lot on it. Not a mystery, really. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:20, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
You're wrong on both fronts. Thanks for the link, I didn't know about that special page. May come in handy in the future. It produces slightly different results from what is in the category so I'll check if there is anything in it I need to add. It also shows some files incorrectly though as it does not check if WA is present. (File:IMG-20180218-rehovot-train-station-february-2018.jpg for example is in the list) I think I also have some filenames on my list that are not on your list.
I initially created the user page so I could have an on-wiki list of the files and I wasn't sure about an appropriate name for a category. I also wasn't sure yet these originate from Whatsapp. I never needed the page for cat-a-lot. Cat-a-lot works fine from a preview page. That's actually what I did because 400+ images at once made it choke.
One more thing: File:РосКомСвобода - IMG-20130728-WA0005.jpg. (I'll be adding some more) - Alexis Jazz 07:53, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Please keep redirects when renaming, unless the original name violates policy.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 18:31, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for reminder, I understand merits of redirects in general. Tracking of these .webm files by the uploader? He proposed the current names himself. General accountability? There is an easily searchable page transcluded to deletion logs; specific moves can be traced directly by clicking a red link. Use of the files by anyone else? Unlikely, given short timespan since uploading; moreover, 26 names were blatantly erroneous so their use could be contrary to intentions. But even given this last point, I’d not suppress redirects for files uploaded several weeks ago. Also keep in mind that you proposed these files for deletion. Had it been accepted, there wouldn’t be any remaining indication—except available for sysops—of the fate of each individual upload. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:36, 25 February 2018 (UTC)


I'm asking you because I think you might know more about it. Is there a guide or something for hunting socks? Reason I'm asking is Commons:Deletion requests/File:US Navy 070820-N-0021M-002 Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 7 Detail Chinhae, homeported in Gulfport, Miss., clear out logs from last year's mushroom harvest at Aikwangon Residence for the Mentally and Phy.jpg. My gut is telling me possible sock, but a guide with some pointers would be nice to see if it could be confirmed. - Alexis Jazz 14:48, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

@Alexis Jazz: not very much, but give several tips for dealing with IPs. The first to look at – whois(1). Which country and city? How wide the range is? Is the IP dynamic or static? Well – Germany, München, a library (German: Bibliothek), /24 (theoretically 232−24, practically ≤ 254 hosts). Browsing Special:Contribs/ shows that there are two active static IPs in the range. New versions of MediaWiki understand CIDR network ranges internally. There is also a JavaScript gadget (can be activated via Special:Preferences#mw-input-wpgadgets-contribsrange) which supports wildcard syntax for both IPs (like «194.95.59.*») and even account names, and can group contribs by individual sources. Next steps, taking the country into account: w:Special:Contribs/, de:Special:Contribs/
My opinion on the case? This may be a library employee or visitor too lazy to set up an account. But it is only my guess, and there is a non-zero probability for a person banned from Wikipedia, blocked on Commons, etc. Very unlikely a Commons regular with a usable account but socking as an IP deliberately.

Camulogene77’ stuff[edit]

I don't understand, can you explain me the difference between {{Satellite images}} => Satellite imagery and {{Q725252}} => Satellite imagery? he must surely have a good reason to present the same "stuff". Camulogene77 (talk) 09:53, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Speedy G3[edit]

Hello, Incnis Mrsi! I saw your edit summary for tagging the fake map, and wanted to point out that speedy criterion G3 does include hoaxes. As written it looks like something of an afterthought, but I guess the idea is that deliberate hoaxing is considered a form of vandalism.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 06:21, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

You may try speedy deletion, but I do not see any urgency. Regular deletion will eliminate the images anyway; it is less expensive than arguing whether hoax maps were “intentional” or, say, created due to delusions. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:44, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough; divining the uploader’s intentions is an uncertain business, and where there’s been a discussion the deleting admin is relieved of the sole burden of doing so.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 07:01, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Notification about possible deletion[edit]

Some contents have been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether they should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at their entry.

If you created these pages, please note that the fact that they have been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with them, such as a copyright issue.

Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!


Yours sincerely, Sealle (talk) 09:55, 27 March 2018 (UTC)


a little note,

probably best to ignore him. He's strange and has a caustic personality that brings a lot more questions than answers. At one point and a few more, he just says "who cares what you say" and tells Fae to stop uploading because a select few are deleted. just don't bother with him.

ANU case[edit]

The user in question inserted {{project scope}} everywhere (without nowiki, very disruptive), called Fæ "kiddo" and for some reason nominated mostly images related to metal music. (possibly religiously motivated) Also a third user with similar behaviour was found, but no solid proof of socking yet.

I don't know if the user deserved an indefblock, but I can't really say Yann is massively out of line here either. - Alexis Jazz 11:29, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

First, I did not look on their exchanges with Fæ (except this SPI case). Second, harassment in itself is not vandalism and should be handled differently. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:46, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

About your question[edit]

I discussed about this issue on I have no idea about him, and personally i am totally sure there is no relation between Chyah and this Ghorbanpour-related band of socks, a huge mistake of userchecking happened on EnWiki and affected a 7-years active user with thousands of contributions. Look at chyah's talk page, she seem so angry and denied it. This make no sense a user like chyah changing to this kind of acts. Just bcz of some similar edits, and myabe similar ipis. God's know, maybe the trolls who were messing on fawikiquote (and Chyah was a case for them), became more professional and by making this not-notable article they are trying to make chyah seem really a spammer and anoyoing her, or just some amateur users who know nothing. i have been blocked on FaWiki by the reason that i am sock of chyah, and on fawikiquote bcz chyah is globally banned. Last chyah checkuser was on 06 February 2018 and my user name don't seen there. The List is completing monthly, And as Chyah you can't complaint it. They believe on evidences not what the user says. -Rafic.Mufid (talk) 22:41, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

I was determined to defend one Artix Kreiger against Wikipedia-style lynching incited by en.Wikipedia functionaries, but the master scuttled this account leaving such text on the user page. Please, settle on one of the remaining accounts and stop socking on Wikimedia Commons. I won’t lend any support to a person changing a couple of accounts a year – it is a very bad flavour of attention-seeking and drains the community resources. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:55, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi Incnis and Jeff G., let me explain. I was short changed by functionaries over there on enwiki. The account would have been resolved if a certain user didn't decide to follow every fcking edit across all wikis. yes he went through the 5 million edits across me and the alt and notified the person on wikidata, who led the 6 other blocks on other wikis. It would not have been a problem then and thus, I realized that even IF the block was released on enwiki, people will still think that way. I don't plan on changing accounts much anymore since I quit and will be on Wikia. Sorry. 00:58, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Incnis Mrsi, the Naomi-Watts-sockmaster has now created a sock to mock your username, User:Incnis Mrsii, as he had done earlier with me. I've asked revi on meta to hide it as he had done with "my" socks. --Túrelio (talk) 17:44, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

I don’t see all the waste produced by outlaws (such as this username in Cyrillic) as anything deserving attention, assuming Wikimedia provides some protection for my work space. Wikimedia projects are open to the world. Such people as Ven0m2014 have some presence and hate the system because it reject their shit in almost all wikis.

Not better for my proposal to discourage off-topic rampage on certain noticeboard (represented by this recent thread). Why do you expect a sufficient support for my person then?

Hello Incnis Mrsi, Regarding the pings i got on meta and other wikis, i would like to express my regret that you had to wait for a reply. You can be sure that i am very concerned about the fact that the user has been mixed up with an LTA. When the user has been locked, there was CU evidence on enwiki. Since the ID has been confirmed i see no issues. Please note that the user is still blocked for the same reason on two wikis, i also want to point out the lack of communication from the user itself. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:41, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

First, is “the lack of communication from the user itself” a statement about past development or a joke? Today is June 1, not April 1. Second, a request to unblock Solomon203 in ja.Wikipedia is underway, and has a good chance to succeed. English Wikipedia will likely remain the last stronghold of sock paranoia in this case – IMHO not least due to excessive self-esteem. They traditionally deem themselves an incredibly cool community, but I remember them in 2009–11 and see nowadays, and consequently… I don’t show any special respect to their regime and didn’t press for rehabilitation of Solomon203 seriously. Let them prove their coolness without one Incnis Mrsi. I now consider the case closed for my practical purposes and moved onto other things. By the way @Steinsplitter… thanks for a due reaction to this report! Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:04, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

OpenBikeSharing screenshots[edit]


A few months ago, you asked for deletion of files i uploaded on WC =>

About OpenBikeSharing screenshots, you wrote "possibly proprietary" OBS is a "free software" :

Can you tell me what you think is "possibly proprietary" ?

--Jerome misc (talk) 17:39, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Jerome_misc didn’t care about valid attribution in file descriptions—a thing required by most free and liberal licenses—consequently Incnis_Mrsi doesn’t care which license some Android program has. Six files from Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Jerome misc were deleted due to errors in attribution; each file that was eventually undeleted got repairs for such an error. If you have ideas how to attribute OpenBikeSharing screenshots correctly, then go to Commons:Undeletion requests and make the case. In any case don’t bother me with it, please.

Commons:Village pump#To make checkusers work for Commons

Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/Chyah

I wasn't sure if I would as several people here severely distrust me (so this doesn't really matter), but I took one more look.

There isn't much to analyze regarding the Mohammad Ghorbanpour socks, they have a couple hundred edits tops it seems. The only things that seem to stand out is that they spam Ghorbanpour and make relatively high numbers of Wikidata edits. So I searched the page titles (and edit summaries) of pages edited by Rafic.Mufid and Chyah.

I searched 105009 edits on Commons from Chyah (2011-2017), 88994 edits on Commons by Rafic.Mufid (2017-2018), 4974 Wikdata edits from Chyah and 6417 Wikidata edits from Rafic.Mufid. At first glance the numbers seem to suggest Rafic.Mufid was more active than Chyah, but I didn't dive into this any further - nobody cares if Chyah and Rafic.Mufid are the same person or not because neither misbehaved.

I searched that total of 205394 edits (page titles and edit summaries) for "ghpr", "ghbn" and "ghorban". Everything I found was unrelated to the artist, edits like these.

I wonder if Chyah ever even mentioned that Ghorbanpour singer. Even a mere mention that predates the spamming socks would comfort me a little they made the right call. Even though a mention would be no proof of a severe obsession, it would be something.. And shouldn't hurt the detectives and their methods. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 14:40, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

If the “obsession” theory has any currency, than certainly not here – I understand who Sonia/Rafic.Mufid is much better than an average Commons member. There may be other reasons for promotional uploads and edits by Sonia herself or a technically indistinguishable person, reasons which I won’t discuss. And why should you search for any incriminating edits by Sonia while check-users still neglect their direct responsibility? Let’s get them back to workplace. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:37, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
If someone is a fan (or hater) of the subject they are spamming, they would be unlikely to keep it completely quiet. Other reasons? Perhaps, as a paid-to-spam editor. I don't think so, but couldn't rule it out completely. Or other reasons that "you won't discuss". (maybe paid-to-spam to get money to flee the country, but that would still be paid-to-spam even if the goal is honorable)
Why should I search for it? If I find it, maybe I can confirm the CU did their job correctly.
Here are some accounts/IPs that were not linked on Category:Sockpuppets of Chyah, do with them whatever you want:
  • AS50810 MOBINNET-AS AS47823 belongs to ArvanCloud CDN that is mobinnet peer, IR

Also interesting: this IP tagged a bunch of articles on fawiki as speedy with comment "Rafic.Mufid" or "Chyah". These articles (or most of them) were created by the account mentioned in the speedy. All those edits were undone. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 17:33, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Why I didn't[edit]

"why didn’t you apply copyvio?"

I have my reasons. Most important is that I find it easier to keep track of what was deleted when there is a DR. In addition, when a new user isn't showing bad faith I prefer not to plaster their talk page with red exclamation marks. The DRs could otherwise be closed speedily. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:58, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Jeff G.: I would ask that you not threaten a block unless there is a clear policy violation worthy of one. It's also best to leave such threats to someone else if you've had conflict with the user, except in the most obvious cases of copyvio or vandalism. I see the poseur comment, and it is not particularly nice. However, it would be better to politely explain that such words can be hurtful and damaging to a collegiate environment. Offer an alternative way of expressing that this musician is not notable enough for Commons. Then if you see Incnis Mrsi being unresponsive to your suggestions and persistently uncivil to the point of disruption, start an AN/U thread.
Remember that civility not a hard policy here. Harsh words will be used, and we must live with that while aspiring to be kinder and more mellow. Guanaco (talk) 15:47, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

"but all the “troll” part should be entirely dismissed if only because of its origin."

I may be reading this wrong, but the origin is me. See Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems#Bob Vila. As for the "do not reuse!" edit, I don't think that kind of behaviour is what should be expected from an admin. It seems like a little thing, but unfortunately it's part of a pattern of bad admin actions which must not continue (not my words, but I fully agree with them). - Alexis Jazz ping plz 23:37, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

For your consideration[edit]

Friend, we are all here as volunteers trying to improve the encyclopedia and add interesting photos. Myself, I've made 58,550 edits to Wikipedia and 9,263 to the Commons. Two of my award-winning photos are on my user page. Wikipedia editors need to be intelligent and skilled, and I have seen this from many of your edits. But they also need to play nice with others. I couldn't help but notice on your talk page a few warnings about personal attacks and keeping cool, by User:Jcb and User:Jeff G. I didn't look too far back. Maybe there are more. Yesterday you left two comments for me, here and here, which were inappropriate in tone. Because I'm not a newcomer, I'm used to the infrequent and unfortunate interactions I must have with others who are not skilled at expressing themselves in a positive way. "Like water off a ducks back", my grandmother used to say. But for new editors, it leaves them feeling Wikipedia is an unwelcoming place. Please take a moment to read law of the instrument. And to answer your question, I do have some experience deleting photos of product packaging, most recently here and here, but I did learn more about the process from my interaction with you. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 14:46, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

I don’t care much about Wikipedia and feelings of its new editors. Most members of its establishment are polite hypocrites. Many long-time Wikipedians are rude hypocrites who drive away not only newbies, but seasoned editors as well. Check-users in en.Wikipedia are uneducated amateurs and their related procedures are crap. Such wikis as ru.Wikipedia can tolerate an evident and prolific wrecker among sysops for more than a decade. I don’t think all these things are due to unfortunate coincidences. If you want to improve something about Wikipedia, then please, don’t start from Incnis Mrsi. BTW, my comment about trivial drawing on a conical surface was fine; don’t blow false alarms. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 14:59, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
As for “golden hammers”, the same metaphor is applicable to the very nomination based on a (misleading) expansion of Commons:PACKAGING. Look @Magnolia677: even a normally deletionist Jcb openly calls for keeping. A misjudgement in the original call is evident. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:24, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

Are you listening me? My account is called "Kai3952" and not Husky221! When you say: "Imagine you walk somewhere in Taiwanese countryside and step on a lychee fruit. Would you be astonished?" To me it sounds provocative, because it is like a discrimination against Taiwan or Taiwanese. Although I am familiar with Chinese language(to use “traditional” Chinese) and Taiwanese culture, I should not be discriminated against. If you need help, I suggest that you please find someone else for now.--Kai3952 (talk) 17:25, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

JPEG artifacts in File:BJT Cascode Small-signal Circuit.png[edit]

I do not understand what did you mean by your edit removing the {{artifacts}} tag. The images has clearly visible JPEG-like artifacts around all lines, especially the colored ones. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 17:45, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

The image has indexed color (posterization), that is, the uploader likely took some care to remove JPEG dirt, but some remnants of it remained. I don’t deem that images where DCT compression damage was mostly (albeit incompletely) erased should go with {{Artifacts}}. But I will not edit-war over this specific image. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 17:58, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
It is just saved using a 256-color palette, but there are no indications of any intentional posterization. Moreover, the file is marked as "Own work", which makes the idea that the author "took some care to remove JPEG dirt" rather strange. In any case, the image does have artifacts (DCT and dithering), so there is no reason not to tag it as such. — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 18:23, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
First of all, I am sorry for my edit summary – some traces of DCT were in fact clearly visible. Now I tweaked the palette making compression remnants almost unnoticeable (except for determined researchers with magnifying glass). Also, I reclassified the image as {{Blurred}} because anti-aliasing is really ugly in some places. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:26, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
OK, thanks! — Mikhail Ryazanov (talk) 19:32, 21 October 2018 (UTC)


Please do not revert the removal of images from Category:Earthrise. This category is *specifically* for the specific image (NASA image AS08-14-2383) and related Apollo 8 image codes. If you can think of another good category for similar images of Earthrises, I welcome it, but they should not go in the specific "Earthrise" category. Remember, this is a proper noun category, not simply a description of a phenomenon. Huntster (t @ c) 18:32, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

@Huntster: then you possibly shouldn’t name the category in this confusing way? Rename it with appropriate qualifier and the incident is over. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:56, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

Rearranging categories[edit]

Hi Incnis Mrsi. Thank you for the comment you dropped in my talk page. From now I will leave clear comments when rearranging categories. Kindest regards. Kintaro (talk) 13:32, 31 October 2018 (UTC)


  • 1)Bad Faith Norminating (Politic)

  • 2) There is actually another copy, freely licensed by the Thailand Ministry of Defense's Drug Rehabilitation Center and Career Training Schools photostream at and that photostream shows several photos that include this person. The photostream contains several duplicates of which most are low resolution images that seem to be photographs or scans of hardcopy photos, but other digital photos are of a higher resolution. The photostream this image came from, which may be her personal user account, shows several of the identical images as those by the Thailand Ministry of Defense's Drug Rehabilitation Center and Career Training Schools. Personally I'll COM:AGF on this unless you know otherwise. Ww2censor (talk) 16:43, 10 October 2018 (UTC)


She was saying that something wrong with her Facebook and it was disappear and she also could not upload photo in comments part that why she has to use Flickr (Not popular in Thailand)

She might use it because the ex priminister from her party has it,I do not know.

I came here because of her Facebook .I believe l can her upload photo from Facebook base on Thailand Copyright Law because she was a politician who had won election.Therefore,her photo and her work had no copyright due to copyright law of Thailand. 2403:6200:88A6:F115:EC5E:3F54:3230:9176 13:11, 6 November 2018 (UTC)


Parliamentary and Ministry of Defence are Government Units.

Do not use possessive pronouns because it makes your English confusing. A work by an official is free of copyright – possible, but we discussed photos of an official, where she is a subject. To learn this dull grammar better – we see postings by certain Lt.Col. Thita’s fan on the user_talk page of Incnis Mrsi. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 13:49, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Removal of speedy tags[edit]

I fully understand (and support) why you reverted the speedy deletion for File:Jana Miartusova & Eufrat - back.jpg. But such things might get you into trouble at some point.

Which is why (when the tag is clearly wrong) I don't do it anymore. I just keep watching. Either an admin performs the revert (case closed), or an admin is stupid enough to actually delete it. Which means yet another trip to COM:UDR. The upside of that: it exposes admin errors. And nobody can yell at you for "out of process speedy removal". When you revert a bogus speedy tag, you are doing the work of an admin and preventing them from making visible mistakes. But it's up to you how you decide to handle those cases. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 18:55, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Are you serious about “exposing admin errors” in present conditions? Look at File:Lung capacity measures.png (histlogsabuse log) for example – a sysop globally replaced an original image from 2007 with a degraded derivative uploaded in 2014 without crediting the source. That means, this sysop:
And when I requested undeletion, another sysop closed the request without really considering the case. Try to understand better where we are currently living, Alexis. Years must pass to make these buttons-clicking guys accountable. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:32, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Okay, so Túrelio needs to buy some glasses (which may be bad if this happens a lot) and Yann looked at your link, saw no deleted file, did see a DR (because you had started one..) and thought there was a misunderstanding. But we know Yann makes mistakes like these sometimes, and once he figures out where he went wrong he usually apologizes and corrects his error. I have seen so much worse.. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 07:15, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

About File:Premongol.png #filehistory[edit]

Hi. I erased my changes because you say it's "to threw a corpse", meaning, I suppose, a copyviol of Talessman's [1]? Now this map Premongol.png is according to the map uploaded by Fakirbakir and modified, before me, by Comnenus, since the original version of DonBeg here [2].

Open Access permission for recently uploaded photographs[edit]

--AishaAbdel (talk) 19:58, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Commons is not Wikipedia (neither specifically English Wikipedia nor Wikipedia at all). Wikipedia may link to external sites having various licensing (from permissive to pay-walled), but media hosted here are available for wiki pages directly and must conform to Commons:Licensing which is rather strict. Moreover, I am not a representative of Wikipedia. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 22:31, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Giorgi Balakhadze[edit]

Can you please help me you seem to know more about Wiki than me. He keeps accusing me of being a sock puppet, has changed my maps without my permission, renamed them without any discussion, and has constantly bullied or been antagonistic on my page and in the complaint section and refuses to apologise for his insults. --User:Lamensi

Giorgi Balakhadze broke Commons:OVERWRITE several times and could be sanctioned if persisted. Go to these users with complaints about bullying. Moreover, I have an aversion to nationalistic and geopolitical scrabbles. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:40, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Warning 2[edit]

Hi, I don't think this is OK. Thanks, Yann (talk) 15:39, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

@Yann: it was intended as a temporary solution to deal with an abusive user. I couldn’t invent anything more graceful at the time. Also, don’t use Jcb-style headings next time, please. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 16:02, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Hi, I don't know what is a "Jcb-style heading". Temporary or not, it is a bad idea. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:21, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
@Yann: there is actually no official policy on Commons about allowance for the user space, namely how to react to a definite deception. Consensus is volatile and adjusts to changes made (or proposed) by parties. In the recent case 4nn1l2 sided with me, Davey2010 and seemingly A.Savin with you… hence “your” side is perhaps more numerous, but is quite short of supermajority.

@Hedwig in Washington: missing the point? Autoconfirmed-only is impermeable for 95% the Nipponese Dog’s pups. Whereas this honeypot for possible “elite” accounts that managed to reach the autoconfirmed level could bring more benefits to Wikimedia than costs in rollback and pollution of watchlists – expensive socks may be detected and terminated.

Particular English words that offended me as a new editor[edit]

I respectfully request that you do not use the words "claims" "alleged" and "dubious" when interacting with me or other new editors. Thankyou for your discussion, but I suspect with other new editors these words completely demotivate them, they are poorly understood depending on cultural context and English comprehension, and many may take them as direct personal attacks on their integrity.

Topic ban on category space[edit]

I'm not sure how I understand how this would work. A topic ban on category space just means that, if the user makes any edits to categorization and an admin is notified, the user can be blocked without furthe warning? - Themightyquill (talk) 11:16, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Observation can be made with bots; anyway, is that annoying to look at the link periodically? As Commons cannot disable edits by-namespace technically, we have to declare that any Petebutt‎‎’s edit to the namespace 14 (except creation of new categories) amounts to vandalism and should be dealt with similarly. If the user was told that their changes to categories are subject to rollback summarily, would you then expect Petebutt‎‎ to persist in making these edits? The only drawback is possible socking, but neither is Themightyquill’s 6-months block sock-proof. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:38, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Given that the user in question has been blocked multiple times in the past for this behaviour and always returns to offer more, yes, I think it's quite likely that he would persist, even if told that any changes to categories are subject to rollback. At which point, I'll simply need to block him (for 6 months?) anyway. If I could technically prevent him from making changes to categories (or even remove his rights to hotcat) I would consider it, but that doesn't seem possible. - Themightyquill (talk) 11:53, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
@Themightyquill: a workable (not absolute, but… beans) solution against HotCat is indeed possible. A sysop should add to user:Petebutt‎‎/common.js such code that makes execution of HotCat impossible and then protect the page sysop-only. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:58, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Code Page 437 es.png[edit]

I noticed you just moved *File:ASCII old.PNG to File:Code Page 437 es.png on the basis that only half is ASCII. This is correct, however it is not quite Code page 437; so far as I can tell, it's Code page 850, i.e. the modified version used by Western European DOS systems. --HarJIT (talk) 15:26, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

I don't know what you mean
If you mean the attribution:
|source=Own work
therefore it schould be correct
If you mean the superseding of the image
  1. The file is smaler
  2. The file is rendered correclty (If I open the PDF in integrated PDF-Preview of Firefox 64.0.2 (64-Bit) it shows the rasterimage.
The file was created with "Adobe Illustrator CC 2015.3 (Macintosh)", I don't use Illustator, therfore I can't check if the picture is hidden on purpuse? (I thought the not rendering is a bug)

  • Keep Zhanakorgan_station.jpg (no FoP, but also no art appears in the frame).

Thank you for the above comment. No freedom of panorama in Uzbekistan means images with art are not allowed at all, but this particular photo is acceptable. There appears to be a question about references which I do not follow. Can you explain to me?--Dthomsen8 (talk) 17:24, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

File:Zhanakorgan_station.jpg is from Kazakhstan, not UZ. A photo with art inherits copyright from all subjects as a derivative work; if all the art has a Commons-compatible license then the photo is permitted here (with proper attribution). Read Commons:Freedom of panorama for introduction to the concept in general. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:04, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Re: File:Syberg_Pigeons.jpg[edit]

Hi Incnic Mrsi. You have just uploaded a new version of this file, but you give no information of its source. The Wikipedians doing uploads about Danish art had just put the old version aside as superseded, so it would be nice to know where this new version came from. Cheers --Rsteen (talk) 04:20, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

What is indeed cursed – this user_talk page or this week? Four days ago an admin lawyered about certain my comments, and today a bizarre accusation of unsourced uploads… although I obviously specified the source within few minutes explicitly as File:Fritz Syberg, Kunstnerens datter betragter duerne i vindueskarmen.png. I even injected it in the edit summary for greater visibility! And also this not-very-successful attempt to type my nick on a keyboard – seemingly not all modern workplaces have a functioning copy-and-paste. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:10, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Hi again. Your irritation is understandable, and I am sorry for causing it. But the "bot" that collects new files concerning Danish artists apparently just takes the first version, so I never saw your update. That put aside, why your remarks of "an overly bloated PNG"? The PNG version was acquired through the dezoomify tool that enables us to get high resolution PNG files from the javascripts at the website. What could be wrong with that?

4nn1l2 (talk) 18:59, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Editing restriction[edit]

You are banned from editing COM:AN and its subpages for a period of six months. If necessary (including starting new threads), you can contact any other editor to ask them to post on your behalf. You are restricted to using only that account. Failure to adhere to these restrictions and expected norms of behaviour on Commons may result in further blocks. You may ask after three months for a lift of this sanction, which would be subject to community discussion and consensus at COM:AN/U. — Racconish💬 13:24, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Administrators lists 219 persons – how many of them take part in noticeboards during the last year? How many systematically do any job at all? Guys, you are themselves at fault that elect a lot of people who won’t do an admin job! That’s why noticeboards are virtually occupied by the narrow circle of users who now imposes its rule on the noticeboards at first, but then—inevitably—on the whole site. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 14:33, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

With all due respect, nobody “feeds me” here – nor even developers of the software. Nor do I feed any of other users. These are indeed Wikimedia projects which suck nutrients from us. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:13, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
As you very well know, this is a collaborative project based on volunteer work. I cannot speak for others, but as far as I am concerned my motivation is not constant and I feel it is important to continue enjoying my collaborations. This may imply changing their nature from time to time. Now as far as you are concerned, I would be thrilled if the outcome of the above restriction would be, may be not today, may be not tomorrow, but at some point, a change in your perception of how to better collaborate with others and, consequently, a wish to give more to the project and to become an admin. Please trust I respect your integrity, intelligence and expertise, though I honestly feel your lack of civility has been damaging and a change is needed in that respect. I hope the action regretfully taken will prove useful. With kind regards, — Racconish💬 15:03, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

A word of support[edit]

For what it's worth, I believe your topic ban was completely unjustified. As previously stated, you are one of the very few users willing to level legitimate criticism against corrupt and frequently hostile administrators. Commons desperately needs greater transparency, and it is an indictment of the system that good faith contributors like yourself can be treated in such a petty, spiteful and blatantly vindictive manner. You have my full support in this matter, along with my respect for your efforts on behalf of the general community. You don't deserve a ban, you deserve a medal.

Hi, I notice you nominated {{PD-Unicode}} for deletion, and then withdrew with the comment "it is a very troublesome template with outright misleading texts in such languages as Russian and German, but the community isn’t currently interested in rectifying it". I agree with you that the template is problematic. The Unicode Consortium explicitly do not consider the glyphs in the published code charts to be PD [4], and although simple alphabetic characters may not meet the threshold for originality, complex pictographic symbols such as most emoji do surely meet the originality threshold, and glyphs cannot be considered PD just because they are published in the Unicode Standard. I hope you will consider renominating this template for deletion. Thanks, BabelStone (talk) 15:52, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

@BabelStone: do whatever you deem right, although it probably would be good to design a valid template covering most non-controversial cases, before restarting.

I see a “sudden” surge in interest to civility on Commons. What about referring to my postings as to “nonsense” or blanking altogether? If it is uncivil, then can you deter it? Please, report here about the first advance in this venture. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 18:04, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

From your last warning to your last block, you fail to treat users here with respect. Toxic users like yourself are not wanted here. --1989 (talk) 16:41, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Most likely revenge for criticism on Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems/Archive 77 #Sysop 1989 takes ThatBPengineer’s baits, where another sysop (anybody but my friend, by the way) overrode 1989’s out-of-process deletions. Hopefully not all Commoners are [CENSORED (by Alexis Jazz, undid 1989's rollback)]. Please, undo [CENSORED (by Alexis Jazz, undid 1989's rollback)] 1989 in:

Each user may deal with my respective posting in a way which deems right. I won’t even argue against 1989’s ignoble attack above. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 17:12, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Please do not lift their block. --VKras (talk) 18:21, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

@Incnis Mrsi, it's a bit sad that you won't (or can't) voice your complaints in a more civilized (or less toxic) manner. Formerly we did communicate and your insight in account-related matters was appreciated. I am always open to criticism about admin-actions, as I don't have the hubris to think I am always right or sort of untouchable. Anyway, I've done some research about the speedied file, restored it and corrected the wrong author-, source- and license-entries: Commons:Deletion requests/File:Intuitive precession.png. --Túrelio (talk) 07:47, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

It's a bit sad that when @Incnis Mrsi expresses himself in perfectly normal, perfectly acceptable ways, that he is accused of toxicity and blocked for incivility. It is straight-forward to look at these diffs:
and see exactly zero discourse that is "toxic" in any way, shape or form. What I see is perfectly normal, perfectly civil talk that one might typically hear, verbally delivered, on a daily basis, in business-office meetings (at least in the United States). I can't even begin to imagine what is insulting or inappropriate about what @Incnis Mrsi has said (at least, according to typical American standards; I'm not familiar with international standards (I understand Japan is very polite); but that kind of speech also might be commonly overheard in Hong Kong as well (where I have spent many months on business). The Chinese are relatively polite, and I don't think they would consider these remarks as "toxic".).
I think it might be worth explaining, in considerable detail, what it is that you find insulting about what @Incnis Mrsi is saying... again -- please review the three diffs posted above. In the meanwhile, to an outside observer, this appears to be a typical example of a typical Wikipedia drive-by shooting, where (to me, at least), it looks like some rando admins are blocking an active, useful, productive editor over some imaginary insults that have not, as a mater of fact, taken place. Linas (talk) 19:42, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
As an uninvolved external observer, I'm placing the unblock request below. This appears to be an entirely unjustified block; perhaps there were some earlier, deeper issues or arguments, elsewhere, but there's no evidence for it. The above three posts are 100% tame, ordinary commentary that even shy, unassertive normal people might say to one-another in the normal course of day-to-day activity. Linas (talk) 19:52, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
Unblock request declined

This blocked user asked to be unblocked, but one or more administrators has reviewed and declined this request. Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked. Other administrators can also review this block, but should not override the decision without discussion.

Request reason: "As explicitly detailed, above."
Decline reason: " Not done Per COM:BLOCK, if the user wishes to be unblocked, then they need to post an unblock request on their own talk page. There is no process in policy to allow for unblock requests by proxy. I don't see a compelling reason to consider some extraordinary exception to policy for a third party who is not active here, on behalf of a user who is blocked on three different projects. GMGtalk 20:43, 24 February 2020 (UTC)"
Administrators: This template should be removed when the block has expired.
