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)

Done by User:Macdonald-ross. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:11, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Suspicious userEdit

Justin86e keeps making a wide array of pointless edits, something he was blocked for on enwiki (here's AIV discussion.) Just wanted to make sure any admin is aware of this user. Someone please take care of him, it's getting clear he's not here to contribute. Zaxxon0 (talk) 02:39, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Blocked indef per WP:ONESTRIKE. I was initially intending to give him a while to see if the edits improve, but unfortunately seems to be a case of WP:CIR here, as highlighted on EN's ANI. Chenzw  Talk  07:56, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Edit wars in RC.Edit

IP vandal and Danny are reverting each other. Appears to be the same person, just a different IP. hmm... Derpdart56 (talk) 02:52, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Its a WMF-banned editor - I reported each IP on metawiki, but they move so fast I haven't bothered with local block requests --DannyS712 (talk) 03:10, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Considering the limited resources meta has requests may not be processed any sooner than they are processed here. Maybe it's better to seek local attention as well.--BRP ever 03:34, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Will do in the future --DannyS712 (talk) 03:43, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
