Just wondering, why a "last chance"? He harassed me first and I decided to talk to him about that, but all he's been doing is deleting my claims and I did it like three times, and he said it was "for quite some time". Please give him a warning as well. 1Luca2 (talk) 18:09, 8 November 2020 (UTC)

You told him 'Delete your page', 'You are a terrible Wikipedia editor'. I don't think he is doing anything like that to you. EdJohnston (talk) 18:18, 8 November 2020 (UTC)
Editor's last edit summary indicates that he/she is WP:NOTHERE. – Sabbatino (talk) 21:35, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

There is obvious bias here. He purposely sabotouged and vandalized my work and others on Stephen Silas' Wikipedia after he was hired by the Rockets. He then has the audacity to say that it wasn't official yet, but Woj and ESPN were reporting on it, and even NBA.com had it official. I can not issue bans yet but if I could I wouldn't allow him to edit for a week. Please do me some justice here. I obviously went to far, but this could've been avoided if he decided not to be selfish. 1Luca2 (talk) 06:39, 21 November 2020 (UTC) (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log) is evading their block as (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log). See for example this edit by the former, and this edit by the latter. IPs geolocate to the same area of Australia, plus there's the usual attempt to add a "decisive" to an Ottoman victory. Could you block please? Thank you. FDW777 (talk) 08:00, 15 November 2020 (UTC)


Hi EdJohnston, as you probably know, ever since the eruption of the new Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, some new user/IPs have arrived to this site, including User:Shakshak31, whom I believe is only here to push a certain narrative. Here are some of his diffs

Personal attacks: speak properly dummy. I'm not sockpuppet of someone. I just didn't see the archive

Major lack of WP:CIR [1]

Removal/alteration of sourced information in a GA article to push his own narrative [2] [3]

Showing signs of anti-Iranianism or at least more disrespect from his side:

I'm deleting my own comment. because the iranian guy deleted my other comment.

== Persian chauvinism == Hello teacher, farsi editors on wikipedia are making Turkish history Iranian. They constantly write "Turco-persian, Turco-afghan, persianized" to Turkish states, but for example, they treat safevis whose origins are controversial as if they were purebred Kurds. Also, I added the posters to the List of Turkic dynasties and countries list. The guys watched all the articles about Turkish. If anything they don't want, they say unreliable source and delete it directly. I've never seen such a lousy site. These are the thieves of history. I will be glad if you can do something. I, too, that same farsi complained to someone I don't know called sockpuppeti and I will be banned soon. Come easy to you. You can delete the message after reading it.

Honestly, some of his diffs are very concerning (especially the last one) and I just don't believe this user is here to WP:BUILDWP. --HistoryofIran (talk) 13:06, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

You also reported this user at WP:ANI#Shakshak31 I see. And someone else made a report about them at SPI: Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Ulpionz. EdJohnston (talk) 20:03, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

Talk:Gleb SvyatoslavichEdit

Hello EdJohnston. When you find some time i would appreciate if you could come by the Talk page of Gleb Svyatoslavich in order to share your opinion on a dispute. Thanks in advance for your time. Demetrios1993 (talk) 21:36, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

My only connection with this issue is through WP:Administrators' noticeboard/3RRArchive413#User:Agricolae reported by User:Miki Filigranski (Result: No action). At present I don't want to share any content opinions. If you need help organizing an RfC let me know. Pushing DNA into articles about historical people is surely a risky business. A page like List of haplogroups of historic people is a more logical home for this kind of thing. EdJohnston (talk) 22:05, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia article "Dependent territory"Edit


Re the Wikipedia article "Dependent territory," I recently made three well-thought-out and constructive edits to that article and gave reasons for those edits on the article's talk page. Unfortunately, however, user Chipmunkdavis reverted all three of those edits in their entirety without giving any reasons. What can be done in this situation?

Atelerixia (talk) 00:42, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Please make your case at Talk:Dependent territory. It appears there is disagreement about the definition of a dependent territory. This kind of debate might be moved along by a WP:Request for comment or other methods of WP:Dispute resolution. In a recent AN3 case, I did warn you not to revert the article again before getting a talk page consensus. "I recently made three well-thought-out and constructive edits.." Most people think their own edits are constructive. It is getting others to agree with you that is the hard part. EdJohnston (talk) 02:26, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Problem with an editor you seem to have previously blockedEdit

I recently undid some extreme POV additions by @AleviQizilbash: and I noticed that you had apparently dealt with similar edits of theirs before. Explaining the problems of their edits on their talk page resulted in some nasty personal attacks, and I've got a feeling that this kind of behavior is what your entry on their talk page was also about. Eik Corell (talk) 22:24, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

I will ease up the hassle for you asshole with satisfaction guaranteedAleviQizilbash (talk) 22:29, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi EdJohnston , Block me Please , Thank You AleviQizilbash (talk) 22:29, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

AleviQizilbash has been blocked indef by GirthSummit per a complaint at ANI. EdJohnston (talk) 15:32, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
Happy to see that the AleviQizilbash problem has been resolved. It's a wonder how Wikipedia's administrative system allowed him to fester on here for months on end before reaching what I saw as the inevitable conclusion. Furthermore, I'm still not-at-all chuffed that one admin even had the nerve to warn me that my description of Alevi's mental state was inappropriate for Wikipedia. Another case of "blame the victim", but alas, we all move on. P.S. We all know that Alevi will be back in less than a week, with a new User name, right? - AppleBsTime (talk) 20:31, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Another Instance of Sockpuppetry Over at Spanish Colonization of the AmericasEdit

Hi EdJohnston, I'm Hobomok, and you previously intervened with some sockpuppetry over at Spanish colonization of the Americas r/t User:Php2000 and an anonymous ip. There's been some recent editing there by a couple recently created accounts (mainly User:Frijolesconqueso), which began editing over at the Genocide of Indigenous Peoples' page shortly after those two accounts were banned (in fact, the account was created the day the anonymous ip was banned). The edits in question there were related to the same edits at Spanish Colonization of the Americas and sources called into question by those two previously banned users. In short, I believe those previously banned accounts have reappeared and are working to undermine those pages again, which seems to be a persistent issue by one editor who has been banned multiple times and continues to make and remake sock puppet accounts after being banned. Would you mind stopping over there and taking a look at this issue? --Hobomok (talk) 19:20, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

If you think you have enough for an SPI, you should go ahead and file. Your main evidence seems to be the account creation date and similar edits regarding subject matter. EdJohnston (talk) 02:36, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
Thank you--I've done so here. --Hobomok (talk) 02:47, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
