WP:Sandbox historyEdit

Urgent need of assistance here as someone decided to move the sandbox page to this page. The page history for the sandbox is now destroyed and someone needs to restore it. No one, even if autoconfirmed, should even move the page itself. Zaxxon0 (talk) 21:17, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Done. Seems that we forgot to re-protect the page in 2009, when the sandbox was "moved" into an archive. Chenzw  Talk  23:00, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
Also there is a whopping 27 pending qd requests...anyone wants to take care of them? Computer Fizz (talk) 23:25, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Offensive usernameEdit

I was gnoming (checking for vanadalism ) and I came across this very offensive username Username not displayed, but click the link, you'll see , also note their contributions, specifically their reference to "on wheels". That's an OLD reference to the ancient wiki vandal , Willie on Wheels. I'd say this user need to be blocked and that user name needs to be salted out of existence! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wekeepwhatwekill (talkcontribs) 16:42, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Already globally locked. -DJSasso (talk) 16:45, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Death threatsEdit

I am an English Wikipedia administrator and I blocked TAPCLAPgamefansince2018 there. This editor is making repetitive death threats on my talk page and should be blocked here and globally banned. Cullen328 (talk) 22:07, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Handled by an administrator, thanks! He's also being reported now. Donnola 3 (talk) 22:09, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. Cullen328 (talk) 22:11, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Cullen328, blocked, and I just saved an edit to m:SRG asking for a lock. I'm going to revision delete the death threats, and please feel free to ask here if there are any other problems with this user or similar that we can help with. Best regards, Vermont (talk) 22:12, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
I am grateful, Vermont. I have received more credible death threats in the past, but never so many in such a rapidfire fashion. Cullen328 (talk) 22:14, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
I'm sure the edit warring on your talk page wasn't a welcome slew of pings; usually we recommend that editors not edit war with LTA's, and wait for an administrator to come and clean it up, in large part for this reason. I've left a note at Zaxxon's talk about it. Always happy to help, Vermont (talk) 22:20, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
