Socking investigations[edit]

One of the pending SPIs causes an uneasy fuzziness around one of active Commons accounts – does it represent a distinct person troubling to understand copyright? Or merely an elite sock grown on well-known farm for use in en.Wikipedia and not yet blocked due to extreme slowness of check-user? It would be good to understand who uploaded File:McDonald's-1968 logo.png (presumedly a derivative of the recently deleted File:McDonald's 1968 logo.png and/or File:McDonald's 1968 logo.jpg). We may and should talk to an errant user, not so to a serially produced puppet. I hope you can eventually spend some time to elucidate the problem of Bill Wong’s “personality”.

Master of U444 and 11wq[edit]

I discovered more puppets, but can’t categorize them because do not know the main (oldest) account. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:56, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Please put it on a CU request page. --Krd 09:07, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Submitted, will add more info soon. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:15, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

After Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/Sol-lol you neglected to reference this page in any way: either {{sockpuppeteer}} on the user: page or simply to link it in block reasons. It caused me to waste time looking for confirmation of facts already known to the community. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 14:39, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

From Deutschland mit Gruesse[edit]

Hallo. Can you do me a favour and see if there is any relation between these two entities: This IP and this "sleeper", whose common attitude is to begin deletion sprees of files uploaded by this servant? Yes, I agree that the first one had a better taste for finding the files to present to DR ("he" is very experienced :) but the issue is, those files were from old times; I'm much more keen to upload only my own files since a considerable time. Thanks for your time. Viele Grüsse. --E4024 (talk) 08:21, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Dear E4024. I'm a bit short on time currently, please put up a regular CU request. --Krd 08:44, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
Danke, but I don't want to go deeper than that. I know we are already short of admins. --E4024 (talk) 08:51, 3 April 2018 (UTC)


dear Krd, I can send the file restore request for this PD-100 license portrait???--Franco Beltrame (talk) 12:14, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Please see COM:UNDEL. --Krd 12:17, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
Unfortunately I can not make the request on that page unfortunately--Franco Beltrame (talk) 14:44, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

No SBL override[edit]

Hallo Krd, ich finde es ziemlich bescheuert, dass nicht mal ein "gewöhnlicher Admin" die Möglichkeit hat, so etwas durch manuelles Verschieben geradezubiegen. Ich dachte immer, dass Admins von dieser edit-Beschränkung ausgenommen wären, ist aber offenbar nicht so. Gruß, --Achim (talk) 15:34, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Ich weiß es leider auch nicht und kann mich frühestens Mitte der Woche drum kümmern. --Krd 15:54, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
Siehe: Ist erst seit 2012 offen. Die einzige Möglichkeit scheint zu sein, dass in nowiki-tags zu packen. --Krd 03:50, 23 April 2018 (UTC)


Hi, Krd. New user Manwe12 asked me in my user talkpage to restore a lot of files, for example file:Ritratto di Ferdinando II d'Asburgo.jpg. They were deleted by you with reason "Created by abuser". Do we need to take action against Manwe12? Or maybe restore the files as PD-old? Taivo (talk) 17:36, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

The original uploader was known to mix blatant copyvios with all types of wrong claims between pd-old mass uploads. You can restore the files in question if you verify that they are really pd-old (and e.g. not a recent production of an historical scene).
I haven't checked yet the the mentioned user is related to the uploader. Please let me know if you think this is relevant. --Krd 17:43, 29 April 2018 (UTC)


I just spotted that Frettiebot (talk · contribs) is running what looks like the same code as Commons:Bots/Requests/Pi bot 1 to add {{Wikidata Infobox}}. I'm not sure if this is an issue or not? From my side, the code is solid, and two users running it doesn't interfere with pi bot's running - but there's no bot flag being used here. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 15:48, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Blocked. Thanks for the notice. --Krd 16:02, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
