Successful RfAEdit

Congratulations on your successful RfA. I have updated your permissions accordingly. Best of luck and thank you for volunteering. GMGtalk 12:25, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

Thank you. I'll try to do my best. --Aphaia (talk) 14:03, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

  • Just a note regarding Kimsa Sok (2003). It's often helpful to check global contribs in these kinds of cases, where we find the account has already been locally blocked on two projects for spam, and also globally locked. Also the addition of the superfluous "2003" is a clue that they're trying to avoid the natural title, and when we go to the deleted contributions at Kimsa Sok, no surprise really that this has already been deleted twice under the natural title.
@Minorax: in particular is quite skilled in combating cross wiki abuse, and when they tag something it usually means there's something deeper that we're missing on our end. GMGtalk 12:29, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
Hello. This has been a chronic issue where the person behind the accounts have been going to at least 10 wikis to self-promote himself. See w:km:Kimsa Sok, w:km:Sok Kimsa, w:Kimsa Sok, w:Draft:Kimsa Sok for some examples. While I don't oppose the removal of the CSD tag in favour of the already running PROD, but I just see no point in wasting time for that.
Hello there, thank you for sharing information. kmwiki wasn't in my scope, it's helpful indeed. Personally it's equal for me both prod and speedy, but oldbees here have tended to prefer prod, perhaps for seeking consensus. Here I'd like to give a weight of another admin discretion who could have speedy it by themselves but requested for prod instead. Thank you for your understanding. --Aphaia (talk) 05:43, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

LTA causing problems:Edit

Hello, I am here to inform you that Wikinger has revived an old account called Inevergiveup2 and is picking up where the others left off on, from their recent edits. Please intervene. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 15:44, 30 September 2021 (UTC)

Thank you @DarkMatterMan4500:, another admin dealt with them gratefully. Hope they don't come back. --Aphaia (talk) 09:26, 1 October 2021 (UTC)
Can I suggest creating a filter against new users moving userpages? I can help you with that over a private connection if you want. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 15:55, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
Good suggestion. I'm just wondered on our default setting ... IIRC some Wikimedia projects set auto-confirmed user only as default for moving, not only user pages. --Aphaia (talk) 15:34, 4 October 2021 (UTC)
They can pretty quickly reach autoconfirmed status on smaller projects, for example by just performing other kinds of vandalism. I suggest implementing something similar to m:Special:AbuseFilter/161, though since Wikiquote doesn't have an autopatroller group (or even patroller for that matter), the corresponding condition would need to be replaced by something related to edit count and user age (though the latter would usually not be a problem for this particular vandal). ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 21:51, 4 October 2021 (UTC)
I got it on auto-confirmed status ... I'll give a look to the filter tomorrow (now it's over 2am!). Besides setting filter, what do you think about imprementing user groups like you mentioned on the above? I've also been qualified as rollbacker on ENWP and it helps sometimes ... from that experience, I love the idea to provide globally entrusted users with those types of flags, specially if they hesitate to receive admin mops here. --Aphaia (talk) 17:27, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
Given that the rollback permission is only available to the sysop group, having a less advanced one with some permissions of this sort seems sensible. On Meta, we have a "patroller" user group with the autopatrol, patrol, rollback, and patrolmarks rights. That would require a Phabricator task in any case. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 18:35, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
For the time being, a filter restricting to, say, 20 edits might be helpful. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 16:27, 22 October 2021 (UTC)

I want the link to all the articles that I have createdEdit

Can I have the link to all the articles that I have written so that I can add citations? Onyinyeonuoha (talk) 04:40, 12 October 2021 (UTC)

According to the deletion log, these two articles:
03:07, 12 October 2021 Aphaia talk contribs block deleted page Deola Sagoe (Proposed deletion: No sourced quotes) (view/restore)
03:06, 12 October 2021 Aphaia talk contribs block deleted page Ola Brown (Proposed deletion: No sourced quotes) (view/restore)
Do you want me to undelete them?
-- Aphaia (talk) 12:11, 12 October 2021 (UTC)
Please, do not delect them, I will work on them Onyinyeonuoha (talk) 05:37, 18 October 2021 (UTC)
@Onyinyeonuoha: Done. Happy sourcingย :) Sorry for my late reply, I've been caught by Chopin Competition for days. --Aphaia (talk) 05:04, 21 October 2021 (UTC)
  • @Onyinyeonuoha: If you look at your contribution page you will see an N in front of every new page you create, if it still exists. Otherwise you can see all the pages you had created by clicking on supercount at the bottom of your contribution page, then look for Pages created.
