Just so you know, you edited while logged out on the RFC. --- Lawrence-Prairies (talk contribs email), 13:51, 11 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

@Lawrence-Prairies: Please do not do this again. All this does is attracts more attention to the private information, please see Oversight for how to proceed in these cases. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:18, 11 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Restore me to "Autopatrolled".[edit source]

I'm sorry to bother you, but it looks like my account's been terminated by whatever you advised me to change my password for, and I was offline. It's definitely me: the Mrkelangelo who made all those My Hero Academia edits. Mrkelangelo (talk) 10:32, 31 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Blocked from All The Tropes Wiki, but I'm not a spammer or abusing multiple accounts[edit source]

Block log: 15:42, 23 January 2020 Looney Toons changed block settings for Eyesnore with an expiration time of indefinite (account creation disabled, email disabled, cannot edit own talk page) (Abusing multiple accounts: Presumed spammer - 6-month-old unused account which suddenly created a secondary account)

I have a global account that is attached to various Miraheze wikis, including All the Tropes Wiki. I have made over 500 edits across all Miraheze wikis, none of which are suspected spam. Can you please unblock me on All the Tropes wiki (which you did over a year ago)? Thanks. Eyesnore (talk) 19:34, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

My apologies. We have been severely hammered by spammers in the past several months, and that block was applied during the midst of what we've come to call "the Storm", a five-week period when spammers were registering bogus accounts at a rate of one a minute and trying to post spam pages every ten minutes or so. We've also had a long-standing rule about accounts creating accounts because in the past we have only seen spammers or vandals doing so. You've provided your bona fides, however, so I've unblocked your account. -- Looney Toons (talk) 19:50, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. I will be able to participate on the wiki soon. Eyesnore (talk) 19:54, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
These log entries suddenly appeared beyond my control back on January 2020: Special:Log/Eyesnore, and I did not notice it. I didn't know until now. I was editing other Miraheze wikis under my username. False positive? Eyesnore (talk) 19:57, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That's what looks like happened, to be honest. A common username among spam only accounts is to have two seemingly different words paired together, usually with a number, like Purplehyena7 or something like that. Dmehus (talk) 20:00, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
