You may not used unsourced quotes. Praxidicae (talk) 17:40, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
ok but what about sourced? Baozon90 (talk) 17:41, 1 October 2019 (UTC) whats the deal with brainyquote and such i always get unsourced quotes. Baozon90 (talk) 17:41, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
Yes, obviously you can add sourced quotes...Praxidicae (talk) 17:41, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
where can i find sourced though? im confused. Baozon90 (talk) 17:42, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
I don't know, ask an admin here. I'm not an expert at Wikiquote. Praxidicae (talk) 17:43, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Deadend wikilinks?Edit

Hi Praxidicae! I tried clicking on the small wiki link on your userpage but it seems to be broken. Just thought I would stop by to bring it to your attention. Cheers, Ottawahitech (talk) 14:35, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Difference is between a Global sysop and a StewardEdit

Hi Praxidicae

I noticed you have been active at WQ recently, so I wonder if I can pick your brains about a topic I am grapling with right now? Can you please explain to me what the difference is between a Global sysop and a Steward? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 16:32, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

You're more than welcome to read about it on the meta pages, I don't really have any interest in entertaining your questions which are tantamount to trolling. Praxidicae (talk) 16:33, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Risto hot sirEdit

Hi Praxidicae, you have reverted perfectly good edits to an article I am trying to build up on WQ. You did this here and here. You claimed that the The Users you have reverted are not blocked on Wikiquote, and their edits are very helpful. Why are you doing this? Thanks in advance Ottawahitech (talk) 22:45, 12 May 2022 (UTC) Corrected by Ottawahitech (talk) 22:52, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
The user in question is globally locked and banned, under the name Risto hot sir and I've explained this numerous times in my edit summaries. Praxidicae (talk) 22:47, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
Why was User:Risto hot sir globally banned?
Before being globally banned Risto made almost 40 thousand edits at Wikiquote. I have looked at dozens of Risto's contributions and as far as I can tell they were always helpful. I understand that global banning is decided by the global community, not by individual wmf-stewards. Is my understanding correct? Ottawahitech (talk) 04:05, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
They was blocked on more than two different projects, and considered as cross wiki abuse. Then they will be globally locked. It's not a ban. They can contest it if they want. PAVLOV (talk) 04:23, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
@PAVLOV, I am confused by your post above. You say it it is not a ban, but @Praxidicae said that Risto was "banned". I assume Praxidicae who is a Global sysop probably knows more than you do? Ottawahitech (talk) 14:27, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
19:13, 20 August 2019 Wim b (S) talk contribs changed status for global account "User:Risto hot sir@global": set locked; unset (none) (crosswiki abuse)
This user is global locked for his crosswiki abuse, and other sockpuppets of them all need to be dealt with the same method (reverting and locking). I'm also confused because a ban usually has m:Global ban steps. While m:Global lock is usually for LTA, cross wiki abuse and stuff like that. Not all people being global locked are banned. PAVLOV (talk) 07:14, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
Global sysops definitely know more than I do, but only Stewards and Wikimedia Foundation can enact a global ban. PAVLOV (talk) 07:15, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
Also please explain how you are trying to build them up when all the edits I reverted were by users who are clearly not you? Praxidicae (talk) 22:48, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
@Praxidicae, I am sorry, I don't understand your question Ottawahitech (talk) 14:29, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
Ottawahitech, just so you are aware, there is no need to ping users on their own talk page - so the ping to Praxidicae was unnecessary here. --Ferien (talk) 15:16, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
I know that, @Ferien. Thanks for your help. Ottawahitech (talk) 16:03, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
By the way, LTA:GRP is very active on this project, so be careful when you thought some edits were consturctive but others reverted them. If you restore them, GRP might follow you. PAVLOV (talk) 04:25, 14 May 2022 (UTC)

Question to Praxidicae: Was Risto hot sir Globally banned properly?Edit

Before being globally banned Risto made almost 40 thousand edits at Wikiquote. I have looked at dozens of Risto's contributions and as far as I can tell they were always helpful. I understand that global banning is decided by the global community, not by individual wmf-stewards. Is my understanding correct? Ottawahitech (talk) 13:39, 14 May 2022 (UTC)

If someone else in good standing or an administrator from this community thinks Risto's edits should stay, I'm more than happy (with some sort of consensus) to leave them alone, but beyond that, I am formally requesting that you please stop pinging me, messaging me or otherwise bothering me about this or any other non-urgent matters.Praxidicae (talk) 20:11, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
