User talk:Jogi.jewels[edit]

You may wish to revoke talk page access.--Cahk (talk) 10:54, 27 January 2018 (UTC)


More IPs are harrassing me. How about protecting my user talk page? Thanks,  Anchorvale T@lk  09:54, 29 January 2018 (UTC)  Anchorvale T@lk  09:54, 29 January 2018 (UTC)


Please g-lock this account, I have received a message from MediaWiki on 'lorem ipsum...' two minutes ago. Iggy (Swan) 21:09, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

It's already locked, but I cannot lock accounts. Requests are made to m:Steward_requests/Global. -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:12, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
Yep, I locked them. Thanks for the notification. --Bsadowski1 21:44, 29 January 2018 (UTC)


This IP user just dumped a huge wall of text, of what appears to be poorly translated latin on my talk page, and signed it with your username. Thought you should know. - theWOLFchild 05:12, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

I removed it, but he just dumped it back on, slightly different IP address, but obviously the same user. Not sure why he has chosen my page, or your username. - theWOLFchild 05:16, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, it looks like Neil picked them up on that. This is My Royal Young. When one blocks weirdos, as I have, one sometimes get a weird response. -- zzuuzz (talk) 07:57, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
@Thewolfchild: - I also have this latin wall of text with 'Seliph, Heir of Light' thing, I do not know why this user has only chosen a small amount of random users. One difference between me and some of them is that I am not able to block/protect things. It just happens that I was picked at random or the vandal has noticed that I've reverted some of the vandalism on pages, found from the contributions by ClueBot NG. Iggy (Swan) 10:58, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
and continuous updating of the LTA page. Read: WP:MOV. -- zzuuzz (talk) 11:16, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
I have noticed that there is a user named 'User:Abuse Filter', which is used on I think what it should do here is that if users are deliberately triggering a series of edit filters from the same IP address/range, the Abuse Filter user would autoblock the IP address/range for a certain length. Also, if a certain page received a large number of abuse filters triggered over a short period of time, the Abuse Filter user would auto protect the page for a certain length of time. This shows how many times Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 was affected by the filter triggering by (My Royal Young) today (UTC time zone). This saves administrators of blocking the same LTA's and protecting pages from the same people. The trouble with that is I don't know who created the Abuse filter account. Iggy (Swan) 22:40, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Seems I've attracted the attention of that sock drawer[edit]

Mind semi-protecting my talk page? –Skywatcher68 (talk) 16:36, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

It's not really at that level at this time. They've received a recent range block so we'll see how it goes. -- zzuuzz (talk) 20:36, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Request for creating user page[edit]

Hi, My userpage was deleted because I was self-promotional. I am not blaming anybody but myself. I'm new here and the Wiki page Guidance for younger editors opened my eyes. Now I know almost everything what I should not do on Wikipedia. So now, I want my userpage and I am intended not to self promote again. So, I will be highly appreciated if you can give me the chance of having my userpage again. AhmedLutfeInam 13:00, 5 February 2018 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ahmed Lutfe Inam (talkcontribs)

Hello Ahmed Lutfe Inam. I see you've had some problems with that page. What are your intentions? -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:21, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

I just want to add some informations about me, that's all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ahmed Lutfe Inam (talkcontribs) 13:24, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Like your personal details and social media links? I think that's why it was deleted. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:27, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Yes, That's why it was deleted. But as I was a newbie, I had done those mistakes and now I will not add any kind of personal details and social media links and I will not be self-promotional again and now I really understand the fact. AhmedLutfeInam 04:18, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

OK here's what we'll do. You fully read up on Wikipedia:User pages and create the page at User:Ahmed Lutfe Inam/sandbox (or some other location in your userspace). I'll then take a look and if it's not inappropriate I'll ping some of the admins previously involved in order to resolve the protection. I'll then seek some guarantees that it stays not inappropriate. -- zzuuzz (talk) 07:19, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

My sandbox[edit]

@Zzuuzz: I think you protected it until 2019. How about shortening its protection?  Anchorvale T@lk  10:13, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Hello. Are you expecting any edits from unregistered users? You are welcome to ask another admin, and they are welcome to change it. Also, please consider my previous advice, about poking vandals. WP:BRI. Thanks. -- zzuuzz (talk) 10:35, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
@Anchorvale: Do you see what I mean yet? -- zzuuzz (talk) 08:42, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
@Zzuuzz: Yes, I see it.  Anchorvale T@lk | Contributions  08:44, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Excellent, so we expect no more edit-warring on IP talk pages. I guarantee it will only lead to more disruption, and disruption is not a good option. -- zzuuzz (talk) 08:46, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

IP troubles[edit]

Hi Zzuuzz,

I see that you're active. Can you look into (talk · contribs)? This IP persistently removes sourced content after being warned twice ([1][2]). Also violated the SCW 1RR revert rule. I suggest article be semi-protected as well. Étienne Dolet (talk) 08:17, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

See: The article really needs semi-protection. Étienne Dolet (talk) 17:10, 8 February 2018 (UTC)


I think that this account and User:Tamesbusby might be related. This account was adding a pornographic photo to User:ClueBot III/DoNotArchiveUntil, and I see that this account was doing almost the same thing and to a templated page. Figured I'd message you and share my suspicions. Cheers - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 06:12, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, and that's  Confirmed. There's been a few this morning: Slappeves, Pithyscarf. One of our regulars .. range block time.. -- zzuuzz (talk) 06:17, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

Disruptive IP[edit]

Hey, I see you blocked User:Premjeee. Another IP undid your edit on Oshwah's talk page [3] so they are probably evading your block. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 06:43, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, and there's no doubt it's banned user User:Nsmutte. Unfortunately it's quite a dynamic range, and the IP has probably been reassigned already, so I'm not going to bother blocking it. Welcome to whack-a-mole. -- zzuuzz (talk) 06:50, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Ha, my least favourite carnival game. Should I take it to AIV or should I just keep reverting? HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 06:52, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
There I've issued a quick block. Whack-a-mole may follow, so semi-protection is the next obvious step, but you could even leave it for Oshwah to deal with. -- zzuuzz (talk) 06:57, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Okay, thanks HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 06:58, 11 February 2018 (UTC)


Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is WP:CBAN for My Royal Young. Iggy (Swan) 00:07, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

Baffert/ Zito[edit]

Thanks for fighting the vandalism on Bob Baffert. Unfortunately it looks as though the same vandal has moved on to Nick Zito. Just thought I'd let you know. Tigerboy1966  09:03, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. They're probably going to move on to somewhere else now. -- zzuuzz (talk) 10:19, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
Now moved on to Eight Belles & D. Wayne Lukas. Differernt IP but obviously the same peron. Alerting WikiProject Horse racing. Tigerboy1966  03:25, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Hurricane Electric[edit]

Hello Zzuuzz. This thread may fall into your area of expertise: Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#2001:470::/32 block is way too wide. I have no opinion myself on whether the block is too wide; I am just on my guard whenever I notice that an IP comes from Hurricane Electric. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 18:04, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Gah (sp?). I'll drop Coffee a notification, but won't get to look at this for at least a day. An interesting block log... -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:20, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

WP:CBAN for Krajoyn[edit]

On Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard, I have started a discussion of a potential CBAN of Krajoyn which you might have been involved in.

The discussion is linked at WP:CBAN for Krajoyn. Iggy (Swan) 19:20, 19 February 2018 (UTC)


The latest "good-hand" Iniced sock. Sro23 (talk) 16:13, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Mmm good. Now there's someone who's in two minds about things. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:55, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Open proxy question[edit]

We've had considerable trouble over the last year with re-additions of promotional content by IPs to Remy Blumenfeld. Virtually all of them have been blocked as open proxies. It has recently started up again. Is there any way of finding out whether and are also open proxies? See also: The comment here followed by this. Best, Voceditenore (talk) 12:40, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

I tend to think not, though I'll confess there are some open proxies around that network which I haven't fully figured out. However both edits from the same ISP in the same region suggests to me that you are looking at the original paid editor on their original network. Hopefully they've had enough of their proxies being blocked ;) but the content also suggests it might be a different paid editor with the same intent. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:04, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! My own impression was that these new IPs and the now registered user (and paid editor) who claims to have edited under them is a different person from the article's creator, who clearly had a close connection to the subject but may not have been paid. After that person created Remy Blumenfeld, he/she went on to create articles on his mother, father, younger brother, house, and the architect of his house! I also note that these new IPs all resolve to India from which many paid editors come, but it is a highly unlikely location for the subject or his close associates. Anyhow, the article has several watchers now, so there shouldn't be any more shenanigans. Best, Voceditenore (talk) 13:49, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Vandalism (Tagalog Wikipedia)[edit]

Hello, your user talk page on Tagalog Wikipedia was vandalized and I was reverted it. This IP is continuing contain Lorem Ipsum. --Cyrus noto3at bulaga (Talk to me) 01:32, 3 March 2018 (UTC)[edit]

Hello could you revoke talk page access from them. They are continuing to use their talk page for trolling purposes. Sakura CarteletTalk 20:29, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

for your recent work at A People's History of the United States and Howard Zinn, it is much appreciated. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 16:22, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Any time. -- zzuuzz (talk) 17:44, 7 March 2018 (UTC)


You blocked all of my accounts. I am going to sue you now and Wikipedia. I have a right to do as I wish on here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:40, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello. You've been misinformed. You have the right to do fuck all. -- zzuuzz (talk) 19:42, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Waste of effort Talk:Main Page[edit]

  • I'd just let them embarrass themselves on the world stage. Beats trying to fight them to no avail. Let us point and laugh at the fool. Mr rnddude (talk) 08:04, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

thank you[edit]

Hi Zzuuzz, you seem to be a friendly editor. Thank you for your helpful attitude towards the page Simone_Butler. The main problem has been a user ilbogod as you can see they have set up a user account with the only intention of constantly harassing the page . this is the kind of user who will keep starting new accounts to only disrupt an intended page in my opinion. They have displayed behaviour of disruptive editing with demeaning comments in explanations and harassment .If this user has a connection with the page subject in real life I suggest they deal with it and not harass on wiki.

many Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tea Bow K (talkcontribs) 10:19, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello again Tea Bow K. I agree there is a suspicious focus from this editor and the other instances in the article's history. The article is currently nominated for deletion. This is an acceptable thing to do at this time, and you may wish to comment at the nomination page (regarding the merits of the content not the editors). While this discussion is open the notice on the article should remain in place. As a result of the discussion the page may be deleted, or it may be redirected, or it may remain in place, but what we won't have is the subject being trolled. I hope you appreciate Tea Bow K that not everything that was previously in the article really belonged there - influences and endorsements being two examples. What is important is information which can be attributed to reliable sources. -- zzuuzz (talk) 11:16, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

I dun goof'd...[edit]

I applied an indefinite block to Cooldude9812 due to the... very nice message he left for Widr and noticed that you had done so too... I overwrote your indefinite block and I am sorry. I just wanted to message you to let you know. Best - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 22:38, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

I was applying for the edit before. It's no problem, thanks for noticing. -- zzuuzz (talk) 22:42, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Thank you-[edit]

Many thanks for your help with the IP block; I have asked the business who updates my computer to check for Trojans, etc. and hopefully this will be done tomorrow. In November 2017 I was hospitalized for a blood clot in my leg and had to go to a rehab center. For over a month my computer was turn off and at no time did I access a different computer for Wikipedia, e-mail, etc. When I return home I turn on the computer for the first time in a month. I did get notice from Wikimedia if I was using a different computer elsewhere and I said no-it was the same computer. I hope this information is helpful. Thank you-RFD (talk) 20:51, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Vandyrandy sockmaster[edit]

Hi there. Is User:Vandyrandy a sockpuppet of User:Wikinger? Some of the recent account names and edit summaries used made me think that they were possible socks of INeverCry (also see his sock list on Commons), but the contributions of JotCeVauDe, another behaviorally-linked sock, makes it seem more likely that they may all be socks of User:Wikinger. The Wikinger sock, User:JotCeVauDe has significant behavioral overlap with 3 other recent socks of Vandyrandy, as seen here in the UnderArmourKid SPI. Some of JotCeVauDe's cross-wiki contributions on Meta-Wiki suggest that the socks could belong to Wikinger, as seen here [4] [5]. In addition, these 2 edits [6] [7] (The second one is from a Vandyrandy sock) are just too similar to be a mere coincidence. I'm not sure, though. On that note, can you please rangeblock the underlying IPs of Vandyrandy and JotCeVauDe, if they haven't already been rangeblocked yet? Thank you. LightandDark2000 (talk) 02:01, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Vandyrandy (+socks including Gameraddixt2 and Masteroceanwaves3) is not Wikinger, however JotCeVauDe is Wikinger. I'm pretty certain of that. But I haven't seen an older sockmaster for Vandyrandy. Though I'm open minded I honestly don't think there is one. It seems to me that Vandyrandy has been reading through LTA and SPI wondering who they'd like to impersonate, which, coincidentally is also what Wikinger does. But Wikinger is not easy to impersonate. Vandyrandy is currently sufficiently range blocked. Wikinger is not usually easy to entirely rangeblock. HTH. -- zzuuzz (talk) 05:01, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I searched through the range contribs (I've dealt with some of those vandals before), and it seems that the IP range has been abused for at least 2 months already. It's possible that other vandals might be using the range, including some Neo-Nazis. You might want to consider extending the rangeblock, or applying a 3 month rangeblock if it ends up being abused again. LightandDark2000 (talk) 06:29, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
