Further to your appeal of your WG8686 user account[edit source]

Hi WG8686,

Further to your good-faith appeal to Stewards a couple months ago, I deferred on a decision, given that it came relatively soon after the then most recent sockpuppetry, but I should have been more articulate in my reply with my reason for the deferral. Ideally, you should have followed up with me again via e-mail, rather than creating further accounts.

Nevertheless, now that it's been at least three months since your last sockpuppetry, notwithstanding this and likely one other account, I'm looking to put in place a long-term continuing solution for you, as the current "wash, rinse, repeat" cycle of you creating accounts, editing in a similar fashion that causes DarkMatterMan4500 to create additional work for Stewards, and then locking any sockpuppet accounts isn't sustainable.

So, what I'm proposing is that you be subject to an indefinite Steward user restriction, one which would require you to:

  1. Create any alternate user accounts while logged in to your presumptive and apparent main account (WG88686), ideally on Meta Wiki; and,
  2. Refrain from using any alternate accounts you create on wikis where locally blocked, in compliance with user accounts policy

In order to effect this, I need you to confirm two things, by way of a reply to this thread, that:

  1. You agree with the proposed terms of your user restriction; and that,
  2. You still have access to your WG8686, either by remembering its password or by being able to access the registered e-mail address associated to it

As part of a long-term continuing solution, I have Yes check.svg unlocked your main account, which you may use and which will not be relocked. However, you are not permitted to use sockpuppet accounts without prior approval of Stewards, in accordance with user accounts policy. If you no longer have access to this account, you may e-mail stewards(at), to request the username WG8686 be usurped, and WG8686 recreated for you. Thank you.

WG8686, thanks. It's good to know you also still have access to this user account. If you would like me or Raidarr to assist in having you locally unblocked, with a series of locally-imposed conditions, please let me or Raidarr know. If you would prefer to use a separate user account other than this user account, please let us know privately on Discord or IRC. Dmehus (talk) 20:56, 13 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
For continuity, an unblock arrangement has been reached locally. The terms are fairly simple; be cool, make clean edits with clear edit summaries, use talk pages to civilly resolve disputes and avoid abuse of multiple accounts. Fairly standard things we'd (local bureaucrats and stewards) hope to see of any user in good standing, though for obvious reasons we have a particular interest to reiterate the user accounts part. I hope to see good things, and we won't worry about contentious past unless necessary. --Raidarr (talk) 22:15, 13 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
