Question?Edit

Hii, Cabayi, hope you're fine. I want to ask a question that can I create an article on the List of awards and nominations received by a tv series? Recently, I've created some awards and nominations articles that were received by an artist (here). I don't know whether it would be fine to create such an article. Another question, Is it appropriate to create an article named List of most-viewed (singer)'s music videos on YouTube? There are some most viewed articles by country present like List of most-viewed Pakistani music videos on YouTube. Thank you. Empire AS Talk! 12:41, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Empire AS, apparently it is a thing. Before splitting, please ask yourself whether the list, and the tv show's article, are so large that a split is desirable.
As for the List of most-viewed... articles, I'm not a fan. The numbers will change daily, and this isn't the Billboard charts. Once the numbers can't change any more (because one or more of the singer/Pakistan/YouTube cease to be) then it might be stable and encyclopedic. That's just my opinion, not policy.
I see that the only two country lists are for India & Pakistan. To an outsider like me it looks senseless, like an India vs Pakistan pissing contest, which just narrowly avoids WP:ARBIP. I hope that helps, Cabayi (talk) 13:26, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

"howtodiscuss.com" rangeblockEdit

Hi Cabayi, at this SPI you imposed a rangeblock on

to prevent spamming of howtodiscuss.com into various bed-related pages. The block has expired and the user is at it again. Would you be able to reinstate the rangeblock for a longer period? Thanks, Wham2001 (talk) 15:20, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

I see that whilst I was posting this HJ Mitchell blocked the most recent IP for 31 hours. I still think that a (say) two-week rangeblock would be appropriate. Best, Wham2001 (talk) 15:23, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
Wham2001, I just spotted the AIV report. I wasn't aware of the background. Now that I am, I've blocked the /29 for a month. If that doesn't work, we might have to explore other options like an edit filter. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 15:28, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
HJ Mitchell, thank-you very much! Best, Wham2001 (talk) 15:29, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
It's like they were waiting for me to step out for an hour! Thanks for handling this HJ. Cabayi (talk) 16:19, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
Coming back to this (sorry! – but it seemed better than filing at SPI again) the same edits are also being made by
Would you mind blocking that IP as well? Thanks, Wham2001 (talk) 10:41, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
I'd rather you filed an SPI:
  • for WP:ADMINACCT;
  • to ensure that if/when Sohag764242 sees sense and decides to appeal their block, we have a full picture of their socking;
  • because the SPI opens up tools to look at the socking which aren't available on my talk page;
  • because it makes the behaviour more visible to other users - we shouldn't be relying on your/my/HJ's eyeballs landing on the spamming each time it happens. Cabayi (talk) 11:36, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
    OK – that makes sense, and I will do so. Thanks! Wham2001 (talk) 11:38, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Regarding AN3 and TürksatEdit

Big thanks to you an Ed for blocking that sockpuppet at WP:AN3 and starting an SPI! Last thing I needed was some vexatious edit warring discussion after dealing with bs at the article in question (I regret doing recent changes patrol when it was being edited -_-). Best, Caius G.

ThanksEdit

For catching the typo! Regards. Pasdecomplot (talk) 09:50, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

JordanbpetersonEdit

Did you block User:Jordanbpeterson from creating a new account? Isn't that what he's supposed to do? Troll Control (talk) 10:03, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

You may choose to edit under a new username (see information below), but keep in mind that you are welcome to continue to edit under this username.

Fuzzymenge appeal UTRS 39309Edit

Hi,

So the CU check came back and said it was unlikely that Fuzzymenge is a sock. With that in mind, would you mind if I unblock them?-- 5 albert square (talk) 20:55, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

On a personal level, I have no objection to you stepping in. On this case in particular I'd make a couple of points,
  • It needs handling alongside the SPI case - Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Klevehagfd - if Fuzzymenge is to be unblocked then Klevehagfd should be too.
  • CU explicitly left open the question of WP:MEAT (which they generally don't bother stating).
  • Fuzzymenge's report at WP:ANEW on Caius G. straight after Caius G. filed a report on Klevehagfd is way too far off the norm for the first edits of an unrelated new account. I'd love to see Fuzzymenge provide a plausible explanation.
That said, feel free to handle as you see fit. Cabayi (talk) 21:43, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
If you do decide in favour of an unblock that'll revive the issue of the UAA report - Special:Permalink/999333729 (right at the bottom). Cabayi (talk) 21:59, 12 January 2021 (UTC))
