SmashWiki:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive 9

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
Archive.png This page is an archive. Do not edit the contents of this page. Direct any additional comments to the current talk page.

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 at the using {{IP|Username}}, where Username is the name of the user or the IP vandal's IP address.

For reporting similar and unacceptable usernames, report them here instead of on this page. This is done to keep the reports in one place, and because unacceptable usernames can be more subjective (unlike vandal/spam accounts), which may necessitate discussion (which the linked page will be more suited to handle).

Vandal/Spam account reports[edit]

Admin note: Please adhere to SW:QDV. Keep discussion to a minimum; an obvious bad-faith editor's record will speak for itself.

A portion of a few of his edits (the non-vandalism portion) seem to be constructive. Should we keep those? Chilex (talk) 13:46, 5 December 2015 (EST)

Which edits? Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 13:47, 5 December 2015 (EST)
His edit to the Marth page, for example. Obviously, not all of it should be restored, but this one arranged a few of the hitboxes of his moves from least to greatest. Also clarified a few little descriptions here and there. Chilex (talk) 13:58, 5 December 2015 (EST)

Thanks. :) But if this user HAD to be blocked, I'd suggest the first block being lenient (1 week max). If that gets repeated, give them the banhammer. Drill Blaster Mark 2 (talk) 13:10, 28 November 2015 (EST)

Youwutbruh (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) I'm tempting to call vandalism, mainly due to creating a non-userpage about themself and inserted false information, as well as a seemingly untrustworthy username given recent history, but at the same time, it does seem in good faith, so I'll leave it to an admin to decide.

Doubt it. They're similar pushing for the same thing. Also, yes, I failed to mention that 208.54.86.139 was unjustly blocked; that IP was not pushing for anything and merely commented and added to the conversation.

Different IPs, but from the location, and one tried blanking the others' talk page after the other tried. So yeah one is definitely a sock, though it could be a case of the user forgetting their password and not knowing the procedure, considering the user doesn't appear to be well-versed of the wiki.

Yep, it's the same one. Disaster Flare (talk) 16:02, 18 November 2015 (EST)

I suspect the recent 15DWS-related vandals are sockpuppets of an actual community member (dun dun dunnn). It seems weird how much they know about us, and Menotlikeidiots specifically made a page that Ganonmew just requested protection for (but SK didn't protect). It's... strange, to say the least. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by a turkey! Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 21:25, 21 November 2015 (EST)

You raise some interesting points, but what community member hates us this much to the point of causing all this trouble? Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 11:00, 24 November 2015 (EST)
Quite. I cannot run checkuser on everyone, that's a major no-no. I would need a narrower scope. Serpent SKSig.png King 11:03, 24 November 2015 (EST)
I also suspect that Drilly's attacker and 15DWS's attacker are one and the same, based on GottalovetheiPad!'s vandal pages that were made last night. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 11:08, 24 November 2015 (EST)

Protection request[edit]

Should Corrin, his fighter page, and as a precaution Fire Emblem (universe) be semi-protected? This should detract IP users that want to add a trivia point that we voted against adding. Berrenta (talk) 15:42, 21 December 2015 (EST)

Whoops, just noticed the fighter page is already protected as a high traffic page. Maybe the other two? Berrenta (talk) 15:45, 21 December 2015 (EST)

His fighter page is already protected until march, but I will apply semi- to the other 2 pages for a month. Nyargle, FE was vandalized today, under similar circumstances, so it seems appropriate. Serpent SKSig.png King 15:47, 21 December 2015 (EST)
