Looking to make a report regarding a specific user? In addition to being required to provide a thorough and complete report, you should also know that reports by anonymous or logged out users are not taken very seriously for a couple reasons, namely that:

Local election process concluded[edit | edit source]

@Agent Isai: It has been 2 weeks since I've put the election page up ( so I think I should be returned bureaucrat rights by now. I really need them to start editing again. Balofo2 (talk) 19:41, 7 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Balofo2: In the most technical of sense, your election does not meet the requirements for a local election per Local elections as you failed to add a sitenotice to the wiki or add a notice on the main page. However, because you are the lone user on the wiki and because no one disputed your lone activity and election on the wiki, I have decided to call the election in your favor and Yes check.svg promote you to bureaucrat and administrator.

In Bruckheimer's case, it's almost exactly the same behavior as shown here, similar to PwanDonetskRussia's behavior in this edit-summary. The other 2 are pretty much the same, but in different articles. I'll pull up more if required. Also, if I made an error in this template, at least fix it, so I'll know for next time.

Question[edit | edit source]

Are non-admins allowed to tag sock master/sockpuppet accounts? FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 06:02, 8 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I think it is allowed since Wikipedia has some examples. --小美粉粉 (Talk) (Contribs) (Sandbox) (My Wiki) (Global Contribs) 1004065811 bytes of data NOTE: Do not {{ping}} me! 06:17, 8 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, commenting here as a volunteer. I have once tagged globally locked accounts (i.e. Special:Diff/248885), but then reverted by a former steward here, as it is considered unnecessary. I think this matter is at the discretion of stewards and really depending on the circumstances. -Cheers, Matttest (talk | contribs) 08:35, 8 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Generally, it depends on a number of factors. If the account was made by a serial puppeteer who used the account for a little time then it would be a waste of time to do that. On the other hand, if the sock was used extensively and a random lock out of nowhere is likely to confuse people then yes, tagging a user would be appropriate. Agent Isai Talk to me! 20:22, 8 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: Another thing, it appears the sockpuppet template is rather poorly made. Could it perhaps be made identical to the template on Miraheze Login Wiki? FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 21:24, 8 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

User Rights[edit | edit source]


Could a steward (or local actor where applicable) please remove all user rights on wikis except botswiki, wikimaniawiki?

I don't mind having autopatrolled on meta too but otherwise I'd like to remove rights where I'm no longer active.

Thanks,  ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 09:37, 11 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Partially done. TestWiki I defer to a local actor. Circleyverse appears to be soft deleted; the problem is custom groups which are not in my Meta control. Recaptime and Astonishing Scratchers also have custom groups requiring local control. Only way I'd manage it is if I temporarily restore global userrights access. The rest I've removed centrally or in my local capacity, though that has been reduced as I've largely resigned from involvement in reception wikis. An SRE-Steward with more hats would probably be best to take another run through this to finish it off and if anything's left I'll consider something like temporary global userrights to get it done. There's no active local authority on remaining wikis except TestWiki. --Raidarr (talk) 12:07, 11 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
For testwiki local actors can’t remove consuls and according to they specifically defer that responsibility to stewards. Sorry to see you go, you were a great help. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 13:11, 11 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request to add interwiki prefixes[edit | edit source]

I've requested this before in Stewards' noticeboard/Archive 31#Request to add interwiki prefixes. But now it does not seem to work. What's wrong? Zes M Young (talk) 08:15, 12 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

All the links in the page are wrong. Zes M Young (talk) 03:42, 14 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
After I checked the Special:Interwiki and it’s corresponding logs, it seems that Ugochimobi have only added the requested interwiki prefixes for shzxxxmwiki but not cloudvillagewiki, as shown in the logs here (In a nutshell: This is not a bug but rather a forget from the interwiki admin).

Global block for[edit | edit source] (talkcontribslogs)

It is a proxy used by a known mass vandal (see [1]). According to No open proxy policy, we must block globally. — Pixial [Talk] 05:13, 15 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I have had a look and it doesn't seem conclusive that that IP is a proxy. The wiki mentioned isn't a Miraheze wiki so a global block for abuse would also not be appropriate in my opinion unless there's abuse on Miraheze. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:37, 15 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Reception123: This IP was used by an LTA also here on Miraheze, known as "Eariowa" here and on other wikis. The link to the wiki used served as a reference. Furthermore, this site confirms that it is a proxy. — Pixial [Talk] 01:03, 17 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

CheckUser for the following sockpuppeteers[edit | edit source]

I would like to request a CheckUser for the following sockpuppeteers:

PBSArchive's newest socks[edit | edit source]

A few weeks ago, this user was IP banned for a year and somehow managed to create new sockpuppet accounts a few days ago. The following are his new sockpuppets likely falling into a different IP address:

These accounts are obviously sockpuppets of said sockpuppeteer, containing a portion of his name as well as having the same bad grammar in his edits. For example, this page creation and this revision have identical grammar and formatting found in his many other sockpuppet accounts. I was asked by a steward if this user manages to create more sockpuppets, I should alert them.

Introseria socks[edit | edit source]

Every single one of his socks contain "Introseria" in the username and some of these accounts vandalized/spammed the CLG Wiki (in edits now deleted by admins).

RainbowKitty2000 socks[edit | edit source]

If you notice, most of her sockpuppets contain the acronyms of football associations and looking through their edits, they all consist of minor edits usually targeting the Jam Filled Toronto and several other pages. Camenati (talk) 06:33, 15 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for the report. An investigation has been done and accounts have been Yes check.svg locked accordingly. Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:34, 15 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

CheckUser request for even more suspected sockpuppets of RickERB23[edit | edit source]

I am requesting a CheckUser against these 3 accounts, as these 3 have engaged in hostile behavior, consistent with what RickERB23 does when it comes to incivility. Not to mention some overlap between the master, and these 3 suspected socks shouldn't be hard to spot. Here is a list of comparisons between the 3, the master and some older socks:

DemonSlayerFan58 vs. RadarYo47 vs. RickERB23

DemonSlayerFan58 vs. LambChop90

JoyLucaGT vs. TomBatMDO

Now let's look at the behavior that immediately caught my attention, and Marxo Grouch is free to add in more evidence if needed:

Schoolboy99 vs. DemonSlayerFan58 vs. TomBatMDO vs. TheYouTubePopStar. The behavior does appear to be quite obvious, but anybody else who is also familiar with this master may add more compiling evidence onto this thread if they wish to. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 20:02, 15 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I have a question[edit | edit source]

So, I know that this is really late given that I could have asked this seven months ago (back when the wiki got closed), but why was Rubbish Quotev Posts Wiki closed and deleted? I presume it was manually closed, but I'm not sure why the bureaucrat I contacted renamed the wiki as I suggested but then closed it. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 20:42, 15 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It appears to have been closed by a local bureaucrat indeed so there is unfortunately no more record of why since it has now been permanently deleted. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:28, 16 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I can't access my main account.[edit | edit source]

In case you're wondering, no I didn't use this account to evade a ban; I made it because everytime I even attempt to log into my main account, I always get a database error code, rendering said account completely inaccessible, so I made this backup account in case I can't use my main one.

Teve uma pequena investigação e o próprio suposto burocrata falou sua versão, mas sem justificar o motivo dele deixar esses ataques que ocorreu a mim. Será possivel uma conclusão no caso? Tipo deletar todos esses artigos que são como deboche a mim e uma punição ao tal usuário, isso se eles quebraram alguma regra da comunidade daqui.

There has not yet been an outcome on this user copying my crazy comments that I commented on on Destroipedia, besides this crazy Wikibureaucrat didn't fix that user and banned me infinitely on this wiki. There was a small investigation and the supposed bureaucrat himself spoke his version, but without justifying why he left these attacks that occurred to me. Is a conclusion possible in the case?

Removing theTopTens from the blacklist[edit | edit source]

Okay, so I'm not exactly sure where it is banned, but one way or another, the website theTopTens ( has been blacklisted globally from Miraheze, as clearly stated in this discussion. However, I think that the site should be removed from the blacklist. Although the site is (obviously) an unreliable source of information, it can be used as a source when writing pages about the site and its content. In addition to this, toxic posts that were made a long time ago by inactive users are not a reason to blacklist it, in fact, that gives users a thing to write about.
