Deletion of Clarke, 2011

Please delete Clarke, 2011. It appears to be a template, but Template:Clarke, 2011 already exists. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 08:46, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

Also Sattler, 1987 - same as Template:Sattler, 1987. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 08:48, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
Also Say, 1822 - same as Template:Say, 1822. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 08:50, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

Spam attacks

Attention fellow administrators (AccassidyAlvaroMolinaAndyboormanBurmeisterCirceusDan KoehlEncycloPeteyFaendalimasFloscuculiFranz Xaver) (GeniHector BottaiKeith EdkinsKoavfMariusmMKOliverMPFNeferkheperreOhanaUnitedPeterR) (PigsonthewingRLJThiotrixWikiklaas)

I need to go offline after a loong Wikimedia session online, but would like to make my fellow admins aware that we've lately had several spam pages created by what appears to be some kind of spambot. Please have a look at these accounts (listed alphabetically):

All of them were created yesterday or today, with the exception of "AldaHoskins" which was created October 27, 2019. None of them have made any edits until now. Together with Thiotrix I've blocked them all (one is also globally blocked) and deleted their edits, however new ones keep popping up every few hours or so. Perhaps we need to administer some sort of IP range block, but right know I'm too tired to wrap my head around such technicalities. :-) Anyway, please keep a vigilant eye out for new spam pages, and respond accordingly. The recent Block log and Deletion logs may also be useful.

Ever faithful, but currently signing off: Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 07:15, 15 January 2020 (UTC).

The User creation log is also informative. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 07:35, 15 January 2020 (UTC).
Thanks @Tommy Kronkvist:, you write they didnt make any edits, but you also wrote you deleted their edits, I cant see any edits, so I guess its the first. Why I ask, is casue this could be an occassion, where the spam filter may be helpful, if its still active... Dan Koehl (talk) 11:38, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, was lazy, after checking the Deletion logs I saw the edits. Dan Koehl (talk) 11:41, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
@Dan: To be precise I wrote "None of them have made any edits until now" and yes, those edits I've deleted. :-) This includes the "AldaHoskins" account created in October last year, with zero edits until yesterday when suddenly they created 8 new spam pages. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 17:03, 15 January 2020 (UTC).

Misplaced translations

Please delete Help:Reference section/tr/tr, Help:Reference section/tr/tr/en, and Help:Reference section/tr/tr/en/en. I was trying to remove the first one from translation (not sure how it was added) and it didn't work. None of them should exist in the first place. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 06:25, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

 Done. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 08:48, 16 January 2020 (UTC).

IP vandal

Please block All vandalism. Masumrezarock100 (talk) 14:56, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

@Masumrezarock100:  Done. The IP was blocked 15:36, 28 January 2020 by admin Accassidy. Note that it also got globally blocked about 20 minutes before that. Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 19:11, 28 January 2020 (UTC).

Ongoing vandalism

Hi. Please block 2605:E000:D409:3F00:B1E1:6F02:DAE2:2C7D. Thanks! —Hasley (talk) 00:46, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

I would appreciate an independent review of my pecautionary block of User:TheGoodIndian.

I noticed yesterday that they had added several vernacular names which appeared to be incorrect. In partucular the last one they added translates (according to Google) as "India is at risk". Given the heightened political tensions in India at the moment, an immediate block and revert seemed prudent. TheGoodIndian has now questioned the block on my en.Wikipedia talk page. I have advised the that they can still edit their talk page on his project. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:32, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Since you're soliciting the feedback:
  • A block seems appropriate, since there was clearly some editing that was inappropriate.
  • Indefinite is not what I would have chosen, since he could easily get the message after a few days or whatever.
  • I would recommend posting to his talk page explaining what you wrote here. An indefinite block with no post to talk (other than the welcome message) seems unhelpful.
  • I disagree with your reasoning as "vandalism-only", when edits like this are not obviously vandalism. They may be incorrect (I don't know anything about Bengali) but it's not obviously trolling or soapboxing or something. "Inserting False Information" would be accurate and appropriate.
As a recommendation, I would invite you to post to his talk and ask what's up and why he's here on Wikispecies, etc. I think the outcome of this indefinite block with no message will be that he leaves the site for good, whereas a little bit of effort to call-in a user who is not entirely a vandal could pay off with someone providing much-needed info in Bengali. I personally would love for him to help translate. Broadly speaking, I think you are as always generally well-intentioned, competent, helpful, and somewhat... brusque? short-tempered? impatient? when interacting with a user with whom you have a conflict but I very much appreciate you having the humility and maturity to ask for feedback: it's a lesson I definitely need to learn in self-reflection and awareness. @Pigsonthewing:Justin (koavf)TCM 22:48, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. Dealing with your points in order:
  • Indefinite does not mean "infinite", it means "until the issue is resolved". We should use indef. blocks more, not less. Generally speaking, fixed-term block allows a mal-intentioned editor to bide their time then resume harmful actions.
  • Good point. I will post a note on the user's talk page linking to this discussion, rather than repeat it.
  • I was torn between "persistent vandalism" and "vandalism only" as the only two near-suitable pre-sets. I should have used "other".
I have no prior conflict (nor any interaction that I recall) with TheGoodIndian

I thought up till now his name was derived from a John Wayne quote.Neferkheperre (talk) 01:33, 3 March 2020 (UTC)
Thank you all for bringing this up – it may be handy in the case of future, similar incidents. In the broader scope of things, I've long thought that the terms "Persistent Vandalism" and "Vandalism-Only Account" are too limiting and/or misleading. How about we simply merge them into a single reason "Vandalism"? Or at least change "Persistent Vandalism" to "Vandalism" (keeping "Vandalism-Only Account" intact)? –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:55, 3 March 2020 (UTC).
I think "Vandalism" is enough: why define it as "vandalism-only" when very few vandals are literally only doing vandalism? It just states and implies something that's not true. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:19, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Earlier today the user added a request on their user talk page to get their user account unblocked. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 15:00, 6 March 2020 (UTC).

Following an explanation posted to my talk page on en.Wikipedia, and subsequently copied to the above talk page, I'm happy to have unblocked. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:27, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
Okay, sounds good @Andy. In the meantime (and with a ping to @Justin) I've pruned the blocking reasons by replacing the "Persistent vandalism" and "Vandalism-only Account" reasons with the more straightforward "Vandalism" item. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 09:04, 10 March 2020 (UTC).

Request for creating an article regarding last White Giraffe in Earth

Dear Admins , Reference to news. We have no images for this specie which slaughtered by poachers. Omda4wady (talk) 09:33, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

@Omda4wady: This isn't really the sort of thing to post to this noticeboard but yes, it would be great if we had a photo. Do you have a source that has freely-licensed media for this species? —Justin (koavf)TCM 09:41, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
@Koavf: I am searching for free license media. I think OTRS team can help us Omda4wady (talk) 09:46, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
Tweeted: see @Wikispecies. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 02:02, 16 March 2020 (UTC).
No issue with something on this but the giraffe in question was an albino not a species in its own right. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 22:15, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

───────────────────────── @Scott: True, so from a taxonomical viewpoint two albino specimens being killed in Kenya is a fairly unexciting event. I chose to mention it on Twitter anyway, since a tweet may direct new readers to Wikispecies and as long as it doesn't involve pure clickbait that's of course a good thing.

Talking about taxonomy: in the article they list the taxon as Giraffa reticulata which is presented on Wikispecies as the subspecies Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata. Wikimedia Commons offer +300 different images of that particular taxon (most in subcategories), however as far as I could see none of them depicts an albino specimen. Again that's not really an issue for Wikispecies either, since we normally wouldn't add a picture of any albinistic, amelanoid, (hypo/hyper)melanistic or leucistic specimens anyway. It would be a welcome addition to Commons though, for use on Wikipedia. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 02:04, 17 March 2020 (UTC).

@Tommy:. Yes I agreed with mentioning it somehow, but I did not want to see a page created for them, since we already have one for their species. A page for them is more a Wikipedia item than ours, though that would be their decision. Absolutely if appropriately licenced images of these animals can be added to commons would certainly be worthwhile for use on a number of pages on Wikipedia, or even Wikiversity. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 05:59, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Please protect User:Killarnee

Please protect so that this page can only be created by administrators. Thanks, --Killarnee (T12) 17:23, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Request for autopatrol for Pitke

Can User:Pitke please be granted autopatrol rights? Their contributions do not need to be reviewed (c.f. Special:CentralAuth/Pitke). Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 07:22, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Approved. See the equivalent Pitke user rights log for details. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 20:23, 23 March 2020 (UTC).

My Internet status, ad notam

All of my main ISP’s services are currently down, and I will not be able to do any real work around here for the next couple of days. Sorry about that. (Using my smartphone right now but for most of the admin stuff that’s not enough.) –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 18:08, 4 April 2020 (UTC).

Please delete blanked translations

Can an admin please delete the following pages? They are not translations, and since they were replaced with just "...", when looking at Wikispecies:Administrators/ru the "..." is shown instead of the English original for those parts.

Let me know if you have any questions. Posting here and not on the translation admin noticeboard because only translation admins who are also normal administrators can delete these. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 21:36, 4 April 2020 (UTC)

 Done deleted the files. Dan Koehl (talk) 03:31, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

LTA from Wikipedia

This LTA from Wikipedia is vandalising Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and using the vandalism links to vandalise Wikipedia (a common tatic). Can we have these edits redacted? --Randompointofview (talk) 01:20, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

This is starting to get out of hand. IP of vandal might need to be blocked. Also I would appreciate some help here.--Randompointofview (talk) 01:24, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
The LTA is switching IP addresses, ask Enterprisey from Wikipedia if you need to learn more.— The preceding unsigned comment was added by Randompointofview (talkcontribs).
@Randompointofview: Who is causing the problematic edits? —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:08, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
It includes the IP addresses you just blocked. The LTA is taking advantage of the fact that the controls here are looser than on Wikipedia. @Koavf: --Randompointofview (talk) 02:14, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
@Randompointofview:  Done Thanks for being so helpful. It's faster in the future if you just post here instead of reverting over and over again and if you mention the person's username or link to the article in question. Good eye. —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:17, 25 May 2020 (UTC)


Wikispecies:Nospam predates the addition of creation protection. Can I suggest that the titles listed on it, if they still should be protected from creation, be replaced with creation protection? --DannyS712 (talk) 10:57, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

@DannyS712: Sorry if I'm just dumb here but what's the problem? I trust your instincts because you have good judgement. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:26, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
Since 2007 (phab:T4919) there has been a proper way to protect pages against creation using the normal protection interface. Using proper creation protection means that the pages show up as protected from creation, rather than protected from editing. --DannyS712 (talk) 05:27, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Still struggling some here. The Nospam page works and is faster than clicking on 54 pages and opening up their protection and amending it and then deleting the Nospam page. Is there a problem with this quicker solution? Sorry if this comes across as me being dense or snippy--I didn't get much sleep last nite. Just trying to understand. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:47, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
Not dense at all - the no spam page works, it just means that the pages aren't registered as being protected against creation, and since it looks like some of those pages may not need creation protection anymore because the vandals targetting them are from a decade ago, it may not require 54 pages to be opened. If not, its fine, just wanted to make a suggestion --DannyS712 (talk) 22:25, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
Thumbs up emoji. Good deal, Danny. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:28, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

translation admin

Can we have a Translation Admin get rid of an Arabic speedy deletion request. It has been around for days now and it is getting annoying. Thanks Andyboorman (talk) 15:06, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

@Andyboorman: I did request here: metawiki:Meta_talk:Translation_administrators#Translation-related_stuff_to_be_deleted_in_Wikispecies._Help_is_needed!. We have also discussion here--Estopedist1 (talk) 06:08, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Why did you request on meta? Deletions are done by local admins, and to delete translations it just takes an admin who is also a translation admin. The relevant page to delete is Translations:Category:Wikispecies/2/ar --DannyS712 (talk) 06:13, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
..and it is till waiting deletion, speedy or what! Andyboorman (talk) 10:47, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
ok I prefer to leave translation pages to the Translation Admins, but as this has been a while I have deleted it. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 11:03, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Normal translation admins like myself cannot delete translations - only admins can delete the individual translation units, and only admins that are also translation admins can delete whole translation pages --DannyS712 (talk) 11:04, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Yes am aware, fortunately this was a test page and not impossible for me, I am not a translation admin, I could not have deleted this if it was a full page. This case I could, I was just referring to my preference of usually leaving these types of pages to those admins who are also translation admins as you say. How many admins who are also translation admins do we currently have. Maybe we need to recruit some more? Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 11:11, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

─────────────────────────ok seems to be 3 @AlvaroMolina:, @Koavf: and @Tommy Kronkvist:. I believe Tommy has been unwell, I have not seen Alvaro for a while and Justin (Koavf) may be busy I saw he was having CU issues on another Wiki recently. So maybe we need at least one more to become an admin. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 11:18, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

Happy to have more translation admins around here. The barrier should be pretty low since there is so little content to translate. —Justin (koavf)TCM 15:27, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
actually, we have 11 translation administrators, see --Estopedist1 (talk) 06:21, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
Yes but only 3 that are also sysops, was what I was getting at. Justin and Alvaro are also Sysops and Tommy is a Crat. By being both a Translation Admin and a Sysop you have a few more tools and need them to do these speedy deletes for translations. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 06:37, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Need help from an admin

I tried to create Template:Species-2020-07 as a redirect to template:Species-2020-05 because that seems to be the most recent species template to exist, so I could remove the redlink on the main page. However, I cannot create it as I am not an admin, and that's apparently required if a page is linked to the Main page. So, there are two solutions: (a) make me an admin and I'll do it, or (b) have an admin do it. Since option (a) will definitely never happen, I'm requesting option (b)...

AutoWikiBrowser request

Wikispecies:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage/Guide says that this noticeboard is the correct place to request rights for AutoWikiBrowser (AWB). I am requesting these rights. I am an experienced user with AWB. I have AWB rights already in Commons, enwiki and etwiki. Thanks in advance--Estopedist1 (talk) 14:30, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

@Estopedist1: I don't object but do you have any idea of what you would do with the tool? —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:39, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
@Koavf:, well usually I try to be as succinct as possible, but in this case I have to explain in more detail. Sorry for "info pollution". Some examples:
  1. if Foo category/template is gonna be deleted/modified (eg Category:Articles containing Japanese-language text) it is very laborous to remove it manually;
  2. correcting links from DAB pages using "Enable disambiguate" function. Very useful because I am working a lot with DAB pages;
  3. old user's (before about 2009) contributions which format is invalid, eg see "What links here" and headword "main page". Very effective is skip-function, because some old articles are already wikified;
  4. using append-function to add eg category or other structure at the end of article;
When doing above-mentioned tasks, AWB also provides to automatically fix deprecated templates, structures. But, of course, I am not gonna use it just to fix minor technical errors.--Estopedist1 (talk) 19:39, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
This all seems reasonable to me. I'll see if there's more feedback. If no one writes anything, I'm happy to grant access after two weeks. Ping me if needed. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:25, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
