SmashWiki:Administrators' noticeboard

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

The Administrators' noticeboard is intended to be a page to quickly alert the administrators to issues that need their attention.

To make a request or statement, create a new section and provide a neutral, precise summary of events with thought-out reasoning, and, if possible, links to any pages with relevant discussions. It is also a good idea to notify any users involved with the request with a link to the section on this page. Make sure to add new sections to the bottom.

Report vandals and sockpuppets at the top of the appropriate section labeled for such reports using {{IP|Username}}, where Username is the name of the user or the IP vandal's IP address.

For reporting similar and unacceptable usernames, a talk page was formerly used to keep the reports in one place instead of on this page. For future reports, they will be kept under the "Inappropriate usernames" section on this page to keep the reports centralized on the same page.

Further reporting on this vandal considering that they are outright attacking CanvasK for something they originally did to help Black Vulpine, with the comments for each edit reason displaying either racist or ableist behavior, suggesting that they are a troll in the original sense of the internet term: internet bully.

I suspect that might actually be them. I searched the tag "sgtballsquad" (which is currently listed) and all the tweets I found redirect to "Sorey_Saveworld" (the one they put). Searching the "old" tag on Twitter also brings up the "new" tag in the mentions. --CanvasK (talk) 19:58, October 9, 2021 (EDT)
For further proof, here is an archive of a tweet with the "old" tag and the same tweet under the "new" tag (the bios are also similar). --CanvasK (talk) 20:04, October 9, 2021 (EDT)
I'm going to remind you to assume good faith, that was a definitely a grey area edit and the more reasonable assumption would have been that person was the smasher in question who changed their tag, rather than it being some rando trying to "claim" a random smasher's page as their own. In any case like this, you should do research on the matter before writing it off as vandalism, or bring it up to people who can if you can't do it yourself.

Swan99 (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) and MewToo (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS). These are old but a sockpuppet is a sockpuppet. Similar behavior to a serial sockpuppet (Hail God Tabuu (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · God Tabuu WHOIS) is the only sockpuppet account not banned for communication purposes): exaggerated damage, OHKO power, and abilities of SSE enemies, sourcing from the wiki itself (often from pages their sockpuppets edited). I also suspect The Crazy One's Hand (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Crazy One's Hand WHOIS) as the same person, similar naming to The Master's Hand (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Master's Hand WHOIS) (same sockpuppet) and only edits were to undo the latter's edits. I've also found 5 IPs that edited the same pages, around the same time, in the same style, and same edit summaries as the serial sockpuppet, however it's been over a year and we don't typically issue indefinite bans or >1 year bans to IPs. --CanvasK (talk) 10:27, October 29, 2021 (EDT)

MrMHM (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) Memoryman3 sockpuppet. Memoryman3 is a banned user. Zakawer2 (talk) 13:37, September 23, 2021 (EDT)

Inconclusive, no smoking gun IP matches or any other excessive IP similarities that makes it certain, both are in the UK with similar scopes of interest but the UK is a large country with 67 million people and excessive interest with clones isn't at all unique to Memoryman. MrMHM's account has also existed for over a year now without incident, no usual Memoryman antics like edit warring or trying to make Daisy sound more different than she actually is, while Memoryman himself has been absent in other internet circles. Gonna need more evidence than that to claim it's a Memoryman sock. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 09:05, September 24, 2021 (EDT)
He literally changed the Minecart page on the false claim that Dr. Mario and Dark Samus have identical trapped animations to Mario and Samus when stuck inside a minecart, even though I have personally proven that this is not the case in-game through testing and took personal screenshots as evidence. He also has attempted to make edits similar to those that were conducted by Memoryman3 and verified MM3 sockpuppets like Mellowness and Pontiusbrave. Also, he added unnecessary puffery to Daisy's page and tried to make Chrom seem less different from Roy than he actually is, which are typical Memoryman3 habits. Memoryman3 also consistently refuses to use American English despite it being the mandated variety of English on this wiki. Zakawer2 (talk) 06:59, September 27, 2021 (EDT)
Memoryman3 also consistently refuses to use American English despite it being the mandated variety of English on this wiki.
That is blatantly incorrect: SW:MOS literally states: “ There is no preference whether to use American or non-American English”
You also used to (and still do) have an unhealthy fixation with MM so you really should consider backing off and washing your hands of them. Black Vulpine the 🦊Furry🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 09:53, September 27, 2021 (EDT)
"He literally changed the Minecart page on the false claim that Dr. Mario and Dark Samus have identical trapped animations to Mario and Samus when stuck inside a minecart, even though I have personally proven that this is not the case in-game through testing and took personal screenshots as evidence."
You think everyone really has meticulously looked at the animation from interaction with one move? That's an honest mistake I can see anyone making.
"Also, he added unnecessary puffery to Daisy's page and tried to make Chrom seem less different from Roy than he actually is, which are typical Memoryman3 habits."
No, you keep removing legitimate information about the characters in your MM3 paranoia. The differences of Daisy's idle animations are not "puffery", and your edits to the Chrom page were just removing actual differences, like the running impact hitbox offset info that MHM added. You seem to take umbrage with the "functionally identical in every way except for the sweetspots/sourspots" line, which a maybe bit strong in wording, is still true; aside from their different up specials and some minor animation differences, the characters have the same exact attributes and frame data, I'm not going to take that as a smoking gun of MM3 behavior, especially when the same edit wasn't trying to downplay the differences elsewhere.
"Memoryman3 also consistently refuses to use American English despite it being the mandated variety of English on this wiki."
You are the one who needs a brush up on our Manual of Style, the wiki has made it very clear that we do not have a preference for any version of english, American English is not "mandated" on this wiki. Like I told you on discord, stop with the Memoryman paranoia, if I catch you removing legitimate information once more, you are taking a month long block. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 10:08, September 27, 2021 (EDT)
Sorry. I didn't know that there was no mandated version of English on this wiki. Now, I have two identical edits to show you here, the former from MrMHM and the latter from Pontiusbrave; Pontiusbrave is a confirmed Memoryman3 sockpuppet banned from the website:
Both edits are very similar to one another, which actually supports my case that this could be a Memoryman3 sockpuppet. Zakawer2 (talk) 05:40, September 28, 2021 (EDT)
Alright, now this is some actual good evidence; there is no reason for MrMHM to be telling people to not change his edit in the edit summary while making that edit for the first time, unless he knew about Pontiusbrave's exact same edit being reverted before, which he reasonably shouldn't been able to known as it occurred months before his account was created, and thus the only reasonable conclusion is that he is the same person behind the Pontiusbrave account. One could try arguing he was an IP editor before he created his account and noticed the edit + revert when it happened but only decided to do anything about it seven months later, or was digging through the page's history and happened to come across it, but both scenarios are incredibly unlikely, especially with all the other little coincidences lining up.
Going forward though, while you may have ultimately been right about MrMHM being a Memoryman sock, what I said about dialing back the paranoia with him still applies, do not revert entire edits from suspected socks with legitimate information, and bring up evidence like this to begin with, instead of badgering admins with evidence that is just "he edits clone pages with UK english and made a mistake about a minor interaction".
