I was looking through the abuse logs, and on [https://www.procrastipedia.miraheze.org Procrastipedia], this user has tripped the abuse filter 18 times in the past 48 hours. [https://procrastipedia.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Special:AbuseLog&wpSearchUser=LilaNies3905 Abuse log.] They keep adding external links to their userpage, which triggers the filter. I looked into the attempts, and I noticed that every time, the external links led to different accounts on different websites (NOT affiliated with miraheze). These different accounts are all with different real names, occupations, ages, status of marriage, and even gender. I just have a bad feeling about this user, and it appears suspicious that their personal details happen to change with every website and every edit attempt on that wiki. I really think someone needs to look into this user, as it may be possible that they are an LTA or abuse multiple accounts. Thanks! --[[User:TFFfan|TFFfan]] ([[User talk:TFFfan|talk]]) 17:33, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

Deletion warnings

Miraheze community notice to place an article in line for deletion in so many days DOES NOT ITSELF HAVE A DATE so the actual date of proposed action cannot be inferred! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nglock (talkcontribs) 08:40 (UTC -07:00), 30 June 2020

It's a little unclear what exactly you're looking to be changed in the inactive/closure wiki site notices, but if it's what I think you're suggesting, I'd Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support such a change. I think all we should/need to do here is add an automatic counter that counts down the name of time remaining until it's eligible for deletion and then displays that to the visitor. I'd also like to see a column added to Special:WikiDiscover that indicates this as well, or, better yet, two columns which prints the time since the last status change (if marked as "inactive" or "closed") and also the time remaining until being eligible for "deletion" (again, only for those marked as "inactive" or "close"; for others, it would print "N/A" or "Not applicable"). @Void:, do you think this would be possible?

This would require a technical change, and therefore would need a phabricator task. -- Void Whispers 21:27, 30 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

User:Tali64³ - Request for Autopatrolled

I'd like to request for any administrator to grant Tali64³, with nearly 1,000 global edits across multiple wikis, several of which I assume this user has created, the autopatrol user right on Meta. The user is experienced in editing, page creation, the scope of Meta, and has no active blocks of any kind on any wiki. There's no need to patrol this user's revisions.

Thanks,

Reporting a cross-wiki troll

https://rottenwebsites.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Autisticide

This user keeps posting offensive comments about autism and his username literally means “the killing of autistic people”. Is this the right place to report trolls? If so, it’d be much appreciated if he’s globally locked. Thanks! — Perry The Chiweenie (talk) 13:57, 9 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done by Void. Thanks for the report, in future please report cross-wiki issues on Steward noticeboard, Thanks!-MrJaroslavik (talk) 14:08, 9 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
You're welcome, and thanks for letting me know where to report trolls in the future! -- Perry The Chiweenie (talk) 12:23, 10 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

User:El Komodos Drago - Request for Autopatrolled

In the course of patrolling, I came across a well-articulated, properly signed comment on one of the remaining open RfCs. Reviewing the user's global accounts and edit counts, the user has nearly 1,000 global edits across many wikis. The user is somewhat less active on Meta, but still has a very respectable 76 edits. Looked through the user's recent contributions on Meta, and saw no concerns. As well, the user has had a global Miraheze account for nearly two years. So, similar to other recent autopatrolled user right grants, I'd like to request that El Komodos Drago be granted autopatrolled. Thanks,

Translation error at Special:GlobalUsers/interwiki-admin

Could any administrator, or interface administrator, with access to the editinterface, kindly tend to and resolve the translation problem at the Special:GlobalUsers/interwiki-admin special page? The group member is displaying as správce interwiki regardless of what the user has set in their preferences (mine is set to English). This should be resolved to display the group member title in only the user's language as defined in their preferences file. I have checked all the roles for that special page, and that is the only global group with the issue.

Thanks,

@Dmehus: Sorry, it was my doubt. I translated pages (/cs on the end), but here i forgot to this. Yes check.svg Done --MrJaroslavik (talk) 18:42, 16 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@MrJaroslavik: No worries. I figured it was just related to the /cs subpages, but not having an English translation of the page. It's been my experience the group member pages are required only when overriding the default configuration, so, effectively, there was only the /cs subpages. At any rate, thanks for fixing.

Can an Admin delete my user page?

I would like an admin to delete my user page here on meta so that my login page shows on here and everywhere else, which it does. Thanks! --TFFfan (talk) 12:38, 18 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done--MrJaroslavik (talk) 12:41, 18 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Can someone look into this user?

I was looking through the abuse logs, and on Procrastipedia, this user has tripped the abuse filter 18 times in the past 48 hours. Abuse log. They keep adding external links to their userpage, which triggers the filter. I looked into the attempts, and I noticed that every time, the external links led to different accounts on different websites (NOT affiliated with miraheze). These different accounts are all with different real names, occupations, ages, status of marriage, and even gender. I just have a bad feeling about this user, and it appears suspicious that their personal details happen to change with every website and every edit attempt on that wiki. I really think someone needs to look into this user, as it may be possible that they are an LTA or abuse multiple accounts. Thanks! --TFFfan (talk) 17:33, 18 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

And one more thing, if they are not an LTA/sockpuppeteer, they are advertising/promoting, and since that wiki is highly inactive, a global sysop would need to block them. Thanks! --TFFfan (talk) 17:36, 18 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
