Welcome to Wikispecies![edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikispecies! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages you might like to see:

If you have named a taxon, then it is likely that there is (or will be) a Wikispecies page about you, and other pages about your published papers. Please see our advice and guidance for taxon authors.

If you have useful images to contribute to Wikispecies, please upload them at Wikimedia Commons. This is also true for video or audio files containing bird songs, whale vocalization, etc.

Please sign your comments on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your username (if you're logged in) and the date. Please also read the Wikispecies policy What Wikispecies is not. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or in the Village Pump. Again, welcome! -- Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:38, 5 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

Autopatrolled rights[edit]

Dear SHB2000, You have been granted autopatrolled user rights, which may be granted to experienced Wikispecies users who have demonstrated an understanding of Wikispecies policies and guidelines. In addition to what registered users can do, autopatrollers can have one's own edits automatically marked as patrolled (autopatrol). The autopatrol user right is intended to reduce the workload of new page patrollers and causes pages created by autopatrolled users to be automatically marked as patrolled. For more information, read Wikispecies:Autopatrollers.

This user has autopatrolled rights on Wikispecies. (verify)

You may as autopatrolled use the autopatrolled user box on your user page. Copy and paste the following code on your user page: {{User Autopatrolled}}

If you have a Meta-Wiki user page, you can put the user box for Meta on your Meta-Wiki user page.

There's always a need of patrolling files edited by unregistered users, and if you think you have a good understanding of Wikispecies policies and guidelines and want to help out with patrolling, you can request patrol rights at Patroller.

Please can we ban for god's sake :( . Sakura emad (talk) 10:45, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Sakura emad: not an admin here, but have asked for a global block. SHB2000 (talk) 10:47, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
Great thank you. Sakura emad (talk) 10:49, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
Hello Sakura emad. The IP was locally blocked at 09:03. They are not (yet?) globally blocked. I saw your request at their user talk page, regardless of the fact that you had by then already blanked it. To reply: Yes, the IP address has been checked. I've since prolonged their block (see log above), partly as a result of that check. Also, their "IP user page" and talk page are now semi-protected. The same goes for SHB2000's local Wikispecies user page, which is now also semi-protected and can't be edited by new or unregistered users.

Thanks Tommy for the protection. I wish there were a mass protect tool but it seems that the MediaWiki developers have yet to create it. SHB2000 (talk) 12:02, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Tommy Kronkvist Thank you for your hard work i appreciate it. Sakura emad (talk) 12:13, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply

───────────────────────── One problem with a mass protect tool is that local administrators and bureaucrats of a specific wiki project doesn't have the user rights needed to protect pages on other wiki sister projects. Such a tool would have to be used by stewards or global administrators. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:04, 26 September 2021 (UTC).Reply

Although a problem with that also is that global sysops don't have sysop rights on every wiki. SHB2000 (talk) 13:20, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
True, the global sysop user group isn't activated on most of the larger wikis, and stewards are few and often busy with other more important tasks. Then of course we also have system administrators, but I guess protecting user pages is a bit too far below their pay grade, so to speak. Nonetheless I agree it would be a helpful tool, for example as a function on the CentralAuth page of any specific user, since that page already lists all of the local user pages for that particular user account. Some day we might get there. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:52, 26 September 2021 (UTC).Reply
