I am pretty sure this IP is part of a proxy range. WickyHoney (talk) 18:39, 29 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

dormancy - coming

Dear Steward, sorry for dormancy. I couldn't input time in the wiki creation these last weeks. As i will have some labour prior to publish to outside world, i do not need avisibility for a couple of weeks. But please keep the wiki running, at lrast private.

Thanks on forward.


I would like to adopt an un-closed wiki

I was thinking about becoming active on Lousy Fanfictions Wiki, and I was wondering if I could adopt it; I know it isn't closed, but the founder hasn't edited in about two months. I know it may take a while for this to be answered so I will edit on the wiki whenever I can. There are no other active members, though DuchessSponge5000 recently edited. It never hurts to try, and I promise to be benevolent and just. Also, if you want a reason for why I want to, well it's because I like the wiki and I wouldn't want it to be forgotten. WickyHoney (talk) 05:51, 2 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I have been editing on it for about a week (about an hour less than a week). I will gladly wait longer, eagerly awaiting a response. I just thought I'd mention this. Also, I don't intend to stop. Have a good night and day. WickyHoney (talk) 05:13, 6 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]


Hello, I request the removal of my Cristianopedia wiki. I'd like to start over with my blank wiki (I will request its creation later). Cristianopedia (talk) 13:56, 2 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

RfC procedure, not for the first time

Today I criticized User:PiotrGrochowski‎ (banned) for presuming to rewrite the premise of an RfC after users had voted on it. This inspires a separate issue, though: The page is not a Request For Comment; it is a Request For Vote, a ballot. Piotr thought it should be structured differently (RhinosF1 replied that a positive statement, with a chance to agree, disagree, or abstain, is how they have worked forever, and I agree). But as a matter of procedure, there was no opportunity for an idealist with a new concept of balloting to intervene. (There are many more relevant pre-ballot objections to a ballot.) That is, perhaps there should have been an actual RfC, before there was a ballot! that being, on what the wording of the ballot should be. Some ballots, if subjected to this process, would be proved unwise and never progress to a ballot at all. Reception123 has heard me previously suggest that a chance for feedback and cooperative editing should precede the submission of a ballot; he advised me to RfC. Am still not ready, nor senior enough, to tell you what your procedure should be, beyond planting this seed of change. Spıke (talk)00:36 3-Apr-2020 Cc: @RhinosF1 and Reception123:

@Spike: Well improvements can definitely be made to the current RfC system. However, a chance for feedback and cooperative editing is already possible. Before opening am RfC, it is completely possible for you to ask for comments on Community noticeboard and to first make a draft RfC. Additionally, an RfC is also not only limited to the initial proposals, and users can choose to add as many new proposals as they wish if they don't agree with the premise of one of them. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:32, 3 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks @Reception123:. A conscientious member would indeed publish his intentions and open a page for cooperative editing. A junior or impatient member just springs it on the community as an RfC, at which point we enter our current jungle of cooperative editing during/after votes! I'd have the RfC period last a week and require less than a majority to progress to a ballot to see if advocates can persuade people, as a motion merely requires proof that it's the wish of more than a single person in order to open general debate.

Can you please block the IPs of these accounts,

He has been sending me threats for allegedly "harassing" him when I was just critizing his immature behaviour. Here is proof: Thanks, Just Amelia (talk) 08:51, 3 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Merge users on

Hello, the following users need to be merged into old accounts:

Also, I'm still waiting for an aswer to this issue: the page Italia disappeared after moving; the history is still there but I can't delete and restore it because it's too big, and downloading/reuploading it didn't work.--Wedhro (talk) 15:41, 4 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Tonywhite1985 has been done. The final username is TonyWhite. Pagliacciotemp has been done, the final username is Pagliaccio. Not sure about the page yet. -- Void Whispers 16:45, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
The page Italia has been restored. -- Void Whispers 16:48, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]


Here's some vandalism-only accounts: Sjwsrule and Sjwisgreat. I believe Ultimatelifeform is also a sockpuppet of this troll due to the identical vandalism style. When one of you guys have the chance, please lock these accounts and their other sockpuppets I potentially missed. --Seewater514 (talk) 00:25, 5 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done -- Void Whispers 01:43, 5 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Another Troll

There's a user called IDontShipDudes vandalizing numerous wikis, please lock their account ASAP.

Another thing, some users are suspecting that this user is a sockpuppet of a recently blocked user on a bunch of wikis called RoboticJeffy, can you check to see if this is indeed a sockpuppet of said user? --Seewater514 (talk) 04:06, 5 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Account locked. A Steward will have to do a CheckUser. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:58, 5 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Wiki with one inactive bureaucrat

Drillimation (bureaucrat of Dream Logos and Fiction Wiki) is inactive since January 25, 2020. Can I become a bureaucrat of Dream Logos and Fiction Wiki then drop bureaucrat rights for Drillimation? --TanardoLoud (talk) 11:42, 5 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@TanardoLoud: If there is an active community (and even if there is not), there needs to be a sort of community election or poll in order to elect a new bureaucrat. -- Void Whispers 16:16, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Can you globally lock General 180 please?

He just sent me a xenophobic message against my country on deviantart Proof: -- Ramadhan1a (talk) 14:24, 6 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I’ll remind him about conduct off wiki but issues like this should ideally be taken up with the CoCC. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 14:26, 6 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
That wasn’t intended to be xenophobic. How about if somebody ever sends you an objectionable message again, you just calmly try to reason with whomever sent it to you? Sorry if you interpreted it differently than what I meant, and you can message me on Discord if you have any questions. Signed - General I80

Are these new accounts all the same user?

What appears to be a set of related userIDs were created within a minute of each other on All The Tropes, which raises a question whether they're from the same user. Another account created a few minutes later seems to be related to the batch, as well. Could somebody run a Checkuser on them, please?

The accounts are "TheAdventuresOfTheDessert3", "TheAdventuresOfCureParfait", "TheAdventuresOfCureMacaron", "TheAdventuresOfCureChocolat", and (created a few minutes later) "Friendship Is Happiness"

--Robkelk (talk) 13:06, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry, I got the timing wrong. "TheAdventuresOfTheDessert3" was the one created a few minutes later; "Friendship Is Happiness" was created an hour and a half later. --Robkelk (talk) 15:51, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Similarly, could someone please run a Checkuser on Lilly3, Lilly5, Lilly54, Lilly66 and LillyBear -- all created within the last few days on All The Tropes? Thanks. -- Looney Toons (talk) 15:25, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Another Lilly, "LillyRycroft", has shown up. We also have reason to think new users "Danger Force" and "KarissaGilchrist" are related, too. Can someone please check on these and the "Adventures" crowd Rob cited above? Thank you. -- Looney Toons (talk) 12:56, 10 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

It's been three days since I made my request. How long should I expect to wait? --Robkelk (talk) 22:08, 10 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

CVT Help Request

This vandal is causing destruction on Crummy Scratchers Wiki. WickyHoney (talk) 20:52, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I think there may be a sockpuppeting problem now, because there are other Ips that look like the first that are vandalizing and swearing, which the first did: WickyHoney (talk) 20:59, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I've applied a rangeblock that should cover the abuse. Please let me know if it continues. -- Void Whispers 22:14, 7 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

CheckUser request

A few users have suspected a recently locked vandal called "IDontShipDudes" is a sockpuppet of a user who recently got blocked on a bunch of wikis called "RoboticJeffy", can you check to see if this is indeed a sockpuppet of said user? --Seewater514 (talk) 18:14, 9 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

IDontShipDudes is only confirmed to Knep. -- Void Whispers 23:27, 10 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, thanks for the clarification. Since Knep resorted to sockpuppetry and vandalism, Should their account be locked? I saw that it isn't. --Seewater514 (talk) 23:53, 10 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Ban Iamawesome34

Reason: Possibly sock user of SupBob678, not only that but he made a hate page out of Trevor807, which it's unacceptable.


Ban two SupBop678 socks

SupBob678 had created a lot of socks, and he made a page out of me, and Trevor807. Please locked both of them. Here are the socks: 1. Iamagod 2. Supbob678the2nd
