Usage of twinkleEdit

Hey man,

Thank you for your recent block of 2600:1702:3650:9050:4DD5:1EC4:B7E4:42E1. That IP caused me a lot of issues. I just wanted to know if there was a way that I could use twinkle even though I am not yet auto confirmed because it would really help me with preventing vandalism but right now the only thing I can use it for is welcoming new users. Thanks --Examknow (lets chat!  ) 17:31, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

You will be tomorrow. Vermont (talk) 19:01, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
haha I did not realize that. Thanks--Examknow (lets chat!  ) 22:55, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Please block User:FR30799836 Vandal account. 194.168.89.195 (talk) 11:32, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I replied to the same request on my talk page. -DJSasso (talk) 11:37, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

LPCEdit

Nice block. I had been debating making that block. Couldn't decide if it was worth it for such a big range and possibilities of collateral. He has quieted down recently so I didn't end up doing it. But it is worth watching. -DJSasso (talk) 14:28, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Chenzw made a 6-month block of that range last year. I presume it's their usual broadband range. Considering the range's frequent activity on the English Wikipedia, which is only partially them, I didn't want to block for too long, so a month seemed good to me. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 14:31, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah its a pretty common range for them. -DJSasso (talk) 14:35, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
FWIW, 3 months is my absolute maximum for any IP block (single or range). In theory, if (a) I know it's static, and/or (b) I have an unimpeachable reason for it, I might make an exception. But I don't think I've ever actually done so. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:09, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
DRV has caused global blocks longer than a year iirc. Some LTA's stick to their ranges and cause enough disruption to warrant it. Vermont (talk) 14:10, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
The standard limit is 1 year, however, for places like webhosts/open proxies often go to 3 years. For regular IPs we typically do following progression. 24/31, 48/72, 1 week, 2 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year. 1 year blocks on high issue IPs are very common. -DJSasso (talk) 14:40, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
I'll admit that neither of the two projects where I manage the blocking tends to have problems that intense. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:55, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

RevdelEdit

Hi. Can you please delete Special:Permalink/6558328? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 00:13, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

And Special:Permalink/6558342 for the same reason --DannyS712 (talk) 00:15, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
Why? Vermont (talk) 00:27, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
I've done the first one. Vermont (talk) 00:40, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
Second done now as well. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 00:42, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks --DannyS712 (talk) 00:42, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Help meEdit

Hi dear sir I am new User of Wikipedia I want your help please tell me how to simplify article created by another Wikipedia to simple Wikipedia¡ Consort-Plus (talk) 14:14, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

  • @Consort-Plus:Hello, do take a look at the links posted to your talk page. I'm happy to answer any doubts you have.--Cohaf (talk) 15:32, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

AlrightEdit

Well, first of all, I didn't post a link to my website as a way of advertising myself. It was a way of showing what I know. I apologize for the rude language but I was just surprised at why my page was deleted when I clearly didn't advertise, all I did was link to a project of mine. And that project shows what I know. But alright. Have a nice day and thanks for responding.

My talk pageEdit

Um, what happened there? Nigos (talk · contribs) 03:00, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

It's a WMF-banned editor. Best to ignore his rantings; he's been harassing Wikimedians since 2005 and people online since 1999. Multiple arrests/convictions. Vermont (talk) 03:03, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. Nigos (talk · contribs) 10:51, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Um, that user keeps on spamming me on Commons. What should I do? Nigos (talk · contribs) 00:22, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Report to m:SRG for stewards to gblock the IP or lock the account. Although, he usually changes IP's pretty quickly so by the time a steward gets to blocking it he would be on another. Vermont (talk) 01:30, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
I've tried various tactics, including talking to him (don't waste your time). Reverting and ignoring him seems best. He harasses people pretty much all day every day until he gets arrested, then it stops for a while. Antandrus (talk) 01:54, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
That user is now harassing Jimmy Wales??? Maybe protect his talk page. Nigos (talk · contribs) 00:03, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
Then he'll just vandalize another page. Also, he's cc'd Wales on a few dozen of the emails I've received from him. Honestly, just revert, report the IP, and dont engage him. That's the best way to deal with this. Vermont (talk) 02:18, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
OK. Nigos (talk · contribs) 12:15, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

question about rollbackEdit

hey man, thanks for giving me rollback. it's good to help fight against vandals. but i did notice something, i was trying to figure something out in the sandbox and i get this error. is it impossible to rollback your own edits? i see other people do it but it seems that i cannot. how do you rollback your own edits? can i get this for other stuff? by the text of the error it seems it's the rollback of edit conflict, but that can't be right, because the supposed edit is by me. Computer Fizz (talk) 06:02, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Computer Fizz: Sometimes I see that error if I've already rolled back a change and I try to do it again. Could this be a case like that? The sandbox history shows that you did roll back your change. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:37, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
@Auntof6: First i reverted hazard-bot using rollback, then i reverted myself using twinkle, then i (tried to) revert myself using rollback which got me that error. Computer Fizz (talk) 17:50, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Yeah, if you try to revert a revert it won't work because there's no net change, provided that you're both the revert and the edit before it. Since rollback reverts all edits by a given user, there's no edit to be done when you rollback two edits that, together, result to 0 change. I hope this helps. Vermont (talk) 17:51, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
@Computer Fizz: That seems to be Twinkle, not rollback. I tend to get a similar error when I double-click the rollback button and it tries to revert the edit twice at the same time, edit conflicting with myself. Best regards, Vermont (talk) 14:05, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
I am using rollback though. Or do you mean that twinkle is what's causing rollback to error? Computer Fizz (talk) 17:49, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
The image says you edit conflicted with yourself using Twinkle, not rollback. Twinkle works without rollback. Vermont (talk) 17:50, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Oh, i thought you were saying that twinkle was what gave me that error. Computer Fizz (talk) 18:03, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
Multiple things could cause that error. I was unaware you were testing with Twinkle/Rollback. Vermont (talk) 18:05, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

PatrolEdit

Thank you for promoting me to Patroller. I'm not 100% sure what it does (or really how to use it), but I'll try my best. Also, I'll be away from Wikipedia until late August, so don't be surprised by the lack of edits. ~Junedude433talk 15:04, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

Okay. Basically, your edits are marked as patrolled, and you have the ability to patrol other edits/pages. Considering your article creations it will help reduce the patrolling backlog if your future creations are already marked as patrolled, so I granted the userright. Best regards, Vermont (talk) 15:15, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

HIEdit

Hi Vermont, just saw your message on my talk page. Yes, I'm back editing but only for the next 2 weeks. I was to go back on 28th but a one week extension was given by the Ministry of Education because of the National Census. It's nice to hear from you bro👊 ,back to kick some vandal a** out --DJ ( - ) 20:41, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Interesting. Best regards, Vermont (talk) 20:49, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Please protect User talk:ForevergrgrEdit

Please protect that page, as the LTA keeps on attacking it. Nigos (talk · contribs) 11:24, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

It's better they edit that page than a mainspace article. Vermont (talk) 14:18, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

AsideEdit

...with the fringe benefit that it reduces my temptation to say what I am thinking. :) Antandrus (talk) 22:02, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Lol. I add summaries with my rollback frequently; I have a nice script for it somewhere in my global.js. Haven't used undo since then as it negates the typical problem with rollback that you can't add summaries. Vermont (talk) 22:03, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
how is that possible though? rollback is performed on the server side. Computer Fizz (talk) 23:10, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Copy the rollback link, and add &summary= to it, putting your edit summary after the =. Use %20 for spaces. Nigos (talk · contribs) 23:46, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
