AdminsEdit

Are there no admins here? Thanks for reverting, but that's only half the work. Drmies (talk) 03:10, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Drmies There's 25. I don't believe any are online. I'm currently requesting a global block for the /16 at SRG, and I recommend you email oversight if you haven't already. (stewards oversight, there's no local oversighters) Thanks, Vermont (talk) 03:11, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
I already have, but they're asleep at the wheel too. This is someone who calls themselves WhenDatHotlineBling, and they've taken an unhealthy interest in me. Drmies (talk) 03:14, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

EwwEdit

You should really link to Central Auth instead of Global user contributions in your user page. Global contribs is terribly clunky. GMGtalk 14:31, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

It links to both. See “accounts in all Wikimedia projects.” Vermont (talk) 14:33, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Global lock evasionEdit

Hi Vermont. Sorry to bother you. If you have a minute could you explain what global lock evasion is? I am trying to understand this edit. Thanks! ~ Peter1c (talk) 22:54, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi Peter1c. Their edits to this project are made in contravention to an active global lock that has been placed on multiple of their accounts and sockpuppets. Their original account was User:Risto hot sir. Thank you, Vermont (talk) 01:22, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
Hi Vermont. Thanks for explaining this. In this case, it seems the edit is an improvement to the page. Is it OK if I redo the additions? Thanks. ~ Peter1c (talk)
It is not a problem, of course, but there is the hope that reverting his edits will deter him from trying to continue to edit. Vermont (talk) 14:45, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
Makes sense. Is this a permanent block? I wasn't following the proceedings for block of this user. ~ Peter1c (talk) 14:51, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
Peter1c, it is not necessarily permanent. Many editors whose accounts were formerly locked for crosswiki abuse have been unlocked after successful appeals. However, considering he is actively evading the lock and editing despite it, it is extremely unlikely he will be unlocked. Vermont (talk) 16:04, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
