An IP ban would be great along with it so he can stop it with the socks. Berrenta (talk) 20:26, 13 September 2014 (EDT)
A related thought: Is it possible to blacklist any username beginning with "Tommy barnes"? And if username bans are case-sensitive, can any variations with different uppercase and lowercase letters be blacklisted as well? DarkFox01DF01Sig.pngSay your prayers, Andross! 20:37, 13 September 2014 (EDT)
It'll probably do little, seeing as he'll probably just do stuff like replace the O's with zeroes. And, although extremely unlikely, it may catch an unrelated user trying to make a legitimate account. Air Conditioner AC.png The wiki's OTHER penguin 20:41, 13 September 2014 (EDT)

I see a pattern and it's likely that this guy will definitely be coming back once another 3 months passes. Mind if we, I guess, make his ban longer or permaban him? Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Pokéball 01:04, 27 June 2014 (EDT)
I think the reason for why we don't permaban IPs, even if they are vandals, is because IP addresses can change. BRAWLS BoFSig.png OF BoFSig.pngFURY 01:13, 27 June 2014 (EDT)
True, but this one seems to be the same one every time. .-. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Operator 10:19, 27 June 2014 (EDT)
If an IP changes, and the new one tries to edit constructively, then yeah. We lose a contributor.
This is a bit overkill, but he should probably be banned for 6 years.Qwerty the lord Nessytrewq.jpg 15:48, 10 July 2014 (EDT)
A rather old discussion/report but yeah, I personally think a year or two could do. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Operator 15:56, 10 July 2014 (EDT)

Or we could do this:

  1. Permaban the IP.
  2. Give him the ability to create an account.
  3. If he creates spam/vandal accounts, then ban his account creation power for however long you want.
  4. If we see that a positive contributor comes from the IP (which I highly doubt), then unblock the IP.

Try that admins.Qwerty the lord Nessytrewq.jpg 18:05, 10 July 2014 (EDT)

Ooooooooorrrrrrrrrrr not bother permabanning the IP. Vandals vandalize for fun, and if the person has nothing better to do than vandalize, than whatever. We just block them again if they come back. The repeat vandal has come back multiple times, and giving them an option to create an account when the person doing the vandalizing was willing to just occasionally drop in and vandalize is just a terrible idea when logically, they would just go and vandalize. Repeat vandals are surprisingly not that hard to deal with when you have rollbackers online very often. Permabanning IPs is also a bad decision because people can, *gasp*, change IPs. If some reasonable person ever decides to use the IP to edit, then the 3 month block is more than enough time for said reasonable person to have gained control of the IP instead. You're making a situation far more complicated than it has to be. If a vandal comes, they can be dealt with. MegaTron1XDDecepticon.png 18:42, 10 July 2014 (EDT)

Excessive editing in userpage[edit]

The user Smash is fun has made very few mainspace edits, and made a vast majority of his edits in his own userpage. Can someone remind him? Berrenta (talk) 15:12, 3 August 2014 (EDT)

You can also warn him yourself too. It doesn't have to be an admin that has to do it. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Piano 16:12, 3 August 2014 (EDT)
I know, but I have initially reminded him to use preview and to mind the Wiki Status. Since he seemed to disregard my reminder, I had to leave a note here so admins can keep watch. Berrenta (talk) 16:45, 3 August 2014 (EDT)

On an unrelated note, I wish we were allowed to report users who might risk getting probation as well, like we can remind the admins to probate someone. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Shiny red nose 23:10, 14 August 2014 (EDT)

Move request[edit]

The official name of the emulator is "Project64k", not Project 64k as suggested by the article's title. As such, the page should be moved over Project64k.

Possible sockpuppet[edit]

After Tommy barnes (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · barnes WHOIS) was blocked, he made a sock by the name of Tommy barnes 2 (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · barnes 2 WHOIS). He recreated the Ridley charcter page. Berrenta (talk) 12:41, 12 September 2014 (EDT)

He just created another sock: Tommy barnes 3 (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · barnes 3 WHOIS). Berrenta (talk) 16:56, 12 September 2014 (EDT)

Protection request + sockpuppetry inquiry[edit]

  1. First off, an IP and a user are currently involved in an edit war over Viridi, often by adding merge tags and forcibly redirecting the page; this is occurring despite being repeatedly warned of SW:1RV. As such, a block should be considered for these two users, as well as protection of the Viridi page.
  2. Second off, amid the immature conduct of both and similarities in behaviour involving edit warring on the Viridi article, I am led to believe that the two are one in the same. I would suggest a Checkuser be performed on the duo to see whether or not I am correct.

--- Monsieur Crow, Author Extraordinaire, 19:23, 16 September 2014 (EDT)

The only problem is, IPs can't be probated since probation is a user group and only users can be part of user groups. IPs can be blocked however. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 19:32, 16 September 2014 (EDT)
Who says we have to probate them? A good old fashioned block oughta solve the issue.
--- Monsieur Crow, Author Extraordinaire, 19:34, 16 September 2014 (EDT)
I would later realize that you were requesting a block. I misread the title and thought it's about probation. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 19:36, 16 September 2014 (EDT)

Yep that IP matches that user. Deciding what to do now. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Chronicler 19:47, 16 September 2014 (EDT)

Bump. Block the IP, he's just doing unfunny trolling right now.

--- Monsieur Crow, Author Extraordinaire, 11:43, 17 September 2014 (EDT)

I would advise blocking the user as well, while also adding a warning on his talk page explaining why he was banned. Judging from your previous encounters with him, I would not think he is likely to understand what he did wrong unless it is spelled out to him. He may also try to use a different IP to evade the ban, although the posting style seems distinct enough for it to be recognized easily.--Anothrgamer1234 (talk) 12:01, 17 September 2014 (EDT)
He's now on his account, and he's continuing with the nonsense. Berrenta (talk) 13:21, 17 September 2014 (EDT)
Okay, he's getting unruly. He's still persisting on having beta elements renamed, his sig was set to have a 500px image (another user had to size it down), and he voted in Smash Arena after he already did on his IP, and he is trying to add it back after both votes had to be removed. Berrenta (talk) 18:40, 18 September 2014 (EDT)
Can't we just ban him? Given his referencing of outdated internet memes, his persistence in useless debates, his constant use of the term "wikia", and consistent claims of not violating policies directly linked to him, all signs point to him just being an obnoxious troll attempting to get a ruse out of us.

You're still blatantly disregarding the rules, undermining the wiki, flooding recent changes with pointless arguments, insulting other users, have gotten into many pointless edit wars, blatantly lying about editing from an IP we know you were editing from, and you've made very few actual constructive edits.

Remove redirects[edit]

I would like to request removal of these redirects if no one would turn these into proper moveset subpages.

Allsmashalts (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS)
I don't know why, probably because they both are a form of "All Smash Alts." (the "s" in the first one might mean "smash"). I'm not so sure, though. Check, just in case? Rtzxy SmashSig.jpeg Smashing! 00:11, 26 October 2014 (EDT)

Yeah they look suspiciously similar. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Emissary 00:13, 26 October 2014 (EDT)
I also have a suggestion. The past three sections to the Admin's board have been sockpuppet inquiries, and most messages are sockpuppet inquiries. I was thinking putting in a section just for reporting sockpuppets, similar to what we do with vandal/spam accounts at the top. Thoughts? Rtzxy SmashSig.jpeg Smashing! 00:16, 26 October 2014 (EDT)
