Has this report lead to any further conclusions? It seems this IP user resumed activity after expiry of your 1 month block. --Vogone (talk) 16:01, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

@Vogone: Thanks for the contact, I had forgotten to get back there following the block expiry. There was no contact, which is unfortunate. I have been and tidied up, and blocked for an extended period. I also note, and think that it may be related, though will watch more closely.

I also see a little activity at tgwikt from one of the IPs which is probably related.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:49, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

I see you blocked 2804:14C:6585:429A:E9B4:A405:E5FF:F8C0 on that wiki, but have not deleted (all of?) their recent contributions — specifically the ones from March 10th, which I'm pretty sure are the exact entries that caused the wiki to pass 30K again on that date (I announced it with no "reservations" because I forgot I had just questioned similar activity in that same wiki just the month before [as linked to by Vogone above]). Any particular reason you left those pages alone? - dcljr (talk) 02:17, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Same goes for the following users on the same wiki:
These 5 IPs have been blocked as part of your March 24th block of "2804:14c:6590:8cec::/64" but their contributions from early January of this year have been left on the wiki. Have I just "jumped the gun" on this, and you're still in the process of deleting stuff over there? Or are you not sure they're actually the same person? - dcljr (talk) 02:33, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Mass delete failed due to db error, and I didn't have the time to do singly. The older are not in RC, so cannot be mass deleted.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:39, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
OK. So, should I request this at SRM? (You would have deleted those pages if you could have, right?) - dcljr (talk) 06:04, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
They are deletions that are going to need to be bot'ified or handled individually, which takes a little time and patience. These are shared tasks, so either at SRM, or a link to list at SRM are always an option.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:38, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Unblock response[edit]

In Special:Diff/21992939, why did you put the whole template in <nowiki /> tags rather than using start-unblock declined-end? This looks quite messy and does not get interpreted correctly by Convient Discussions, for instance. ~~~~

Without looking, if there is no local block then I will obliterate the use of the template as it is an inappropriate use of the template, so not a case of granted or declined. I care not that it looks messy, I directly address their needs.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:18, 8 September 2021 (UTC)

Request for IP block exemption[edit]

Hello, hope you are doing good. I've requested for global IP block exemption here. Could you please help? Sreeram Dilak (talk) 09:49, 9 September 2021 (UTC)

@Sreeram Dilak: No, only stewards. Please see Global blocks/FAQ and SRGP  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:53, 9 September 2021 (UTC)
Okay, thank you Sreeram Dilak (talk) 09:56, 9 September 2021 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #485[edit]


Good morning, Billinghurst. I don’t know if it is the usual practice on meta-wiki but would you full-protect the user page of deceased user User:Jhsteel please? She died in November 2017. --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 04:58, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

@Malcolmxl5: All user pages are restricted at metawiki—due to their being global pages—to autopatrolled users and above, and that right is less handed out than other wikis, partly due to this fact. It shouldn't be necessary to further protect it.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:31, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 12:57, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
