Welcome to the Administrators' Noticeboard. This space is for anyone who needs to contact an administrator ("sysop") for actions such as protecting a page, deleting spam, or blocking vandals.
If you rather need to reach a Translation administrator, please use the Translation Administrators' Noticeboard instead. For general conversation, see Wikispecies:Village Pump.

Category:Wikispecies protected edit requests[edit]

Dear admins! Please check Category:Wikispecies protected edit requests. --Kaganer (talk) 13:34, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

@Kaganer: The category lists 54 pages in the MediaWiki talk page namespace, but no pages in the MediaWiki namespace itself. On what grounds should these talk pages be edit protected? –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 21:02, 16 September 2017 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist:These pages related with Wikispecies:Localization. Talkpages contains a proposed translations for related MediaWiki messages. Need to move them to these local messages. --Kaganer (talk) 23:11, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
And there is also two related requests from me: first and second.--Kaganer (talk) 23:14, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

I have already taken care of all the pending protected edit requests in that category. Regards. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 02:20, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

New request for adminship: Kaganer[edit]

I thought that I could not do work with translations without administrative rights. I ask for your support: Requests for adminship#Kaganer and Requests for translation adminship#Kaganer. --Kaganer (talk) 23:36, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

@Kaganer: m:Meta:Translation_administrators/ru? —Justin (koavf)TCM 23:42, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
Request updated. If in this project source pages is protected, that for improving markup needs admin rights with "translation admin" rights. I ask both flags at once.--Kaganer (talk) 23:47, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
Otherwise, I'll permanently disturb everyone with my requests for changing protected pages ;) --Kaganer (talk) 23:53, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
@Kaganer: Please see my answer to your request at Wikispecies talk:Administrators. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 02:29, 17 September 2017 (UTC).

@Koavf: Global account information for Kaganer. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 19:29, 17 September 2017 (UTC).

@Tommy Kronkvist: No blocks and advanced user rights on many projects. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:25, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
Indeed. The user was a global-sysop between October 2014 and November 2016, and is currently Admin + Translation admin on six different wikis, with a total of +300,000 edits since 2008. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 21:48, 17 September 2017 (UTC).

IP block[edit]

I suppose, it is not desirable to block IP addresses indefinitely. I have changed some indefinite blocks to a shorter period, but added a range block for, which should cover all these IP addresses. Regards --Franz Xaver (talk) 18:00, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

I checked your block log and it all seems okay to me. As for that IP is already globally blocked and has been globally blocked no less than 29 times before that,(verify) so I don't think any Wikispecies users have any issues with you blocking it locally as well.
Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 20:26, 29 September 2017 (UTC).
Is that who shows up frequently and vandalizes numerous pages with one swearword? I have blocked that one at least twice. Very happy to see it blocked whenever. Neferkheperre (talk) 22:36, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
Yes, it's this one. And I had to realise that a range block with ##/19 or ##/20 is not sufficient to block this vandal. --Franz Xaver (talk) 22:48, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
Additional information from RIPE database query: route Kronkvist (talk), 01:34, 30 September 2017 (UTC).

For information, there are a number of IP addresses that are blocked indefinitely: [1]. Korg (talk) 10:28, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

I propose to unblock these IP addresses, at least such, that are blocked since many years. --Franz Xaver (talk) 12:19, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
Many of the "ancient" blocks (2006 and prior) are blocked for possibly being an open proxy, which is based from this meta policy on no open proxies. Based on the information from that page, the collateral damage appears to be aimed towards projects where government censors certain political opinions. I highly doubt that Wikispecies fall within this category. As for the indef IP blocks from 2011 to 2014, I think they should be lifted. OhanaUnitedTalk page 17:01, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

Xwiki vandal[edit]

FYI: (talkcontribsblockall projects) . Blocked on Commons. --Hedwig in Washington (talk) 07:52, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for the information. Now blocked here as well.Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 09:08, 16 October 2017 (UTC).
