IPv6 user blockedEdit

I noticed that you blocked all four users I mentioned at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Judaism#IPv6_user_needs_careful_review. Is that coincidence? What was the reason they were blocked? Debresser (talk) 10:48, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

@Debresser: Yes, it is a coincidence; I hadn't noticed your message ... I found that IP on my watchlist. I've been spending all day trying to deal with their edits ... I'm going to check the rest of my watchlist now, and might continue later. I've gotten to about 13 January (UTC) on the range ... Graham87 11:08, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

sorry about reverting your macaron editEdit

I lost track of which was the original version and which was the revert. Petit four and alfajor are both legitimate articles. I've put both in now. Dan Bloch (talk) 02:58, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

@Danbloch: That's alright. Some edits by the IP range I'm dealing with seem relatively OK, like that one, but many ... aren't. Your compromise sounds good. Graham87 03:00, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

Import of articles (Kroos / Resistance Fighters)Edit

Dear Graham87, thank you for getting back to us. Your colleagues from the German Wikipedia told us that we need to contact the staff of the English Wikipedia to be able to create the articles in another language. If I understand you correctly we have to request an import into our userspace in the English Wikipedia, then we complete the translation and then we'll import it to the main space? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Btvwiki (talkcontribs) 12:14, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Happy First Edit Day!Edit

Happy First Edit Day!Edit

  Happy First Edit Day, Graham87, from the Wikipedia Birthday Committee! Have a great day! Bobherry Talk Edits 03:46, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
14 February
Alte Liebe
Congrats, and a "Valentine" to good old relations ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:45, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, Gerda! Graham87 09:51, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
Today's Alte Liebe became especially meaningful after yesterday's funeral. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:25, 28 February 2020 (UTC)
@Gerda Arendt: Awwww wow. Graham87 12:33, 28 February 2020 (UTC)
... made me de-tag the album article, and at least begin the church, and plan the last song which is only a redirect so far. When I wrote Alte Liebe I had no idea that she'd die so soon, "always too soon" - as the song says (Der Weg - on YouTube, and you get the emotions without German.) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:01, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

Precious anniversaryEdit

Eight years!

'tis the season --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:08, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

@Gerda Arendt: Wow, all the anniversaries! Graham87 07:11, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Move failedEdit

I made a mistake. I wanted to move Prussians' Glory to the correct title Prussia's Glory, but I moved to Prussias' Glory. Can you correct this? Thank you! Grimes2 (talk) 21:01, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

@Grimes2: All done. Graham87 02:20, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Works perfectly. Grimes2 (talk) 05:04, 22 February 2020 (UTC)


Congratulations for your 15th anniversary and thank you for your intelligent help as administrator. Grimes2 (talk) 11:10, 27 February 2020 (UTC)

@Grimes2: Thanks and no worries. Graham87 11:48, 27 February 2020 (UTC)

Your recent block of MlopezerEdit

Hi. Not meaning any disrespect here, but as an outside observer I think your indef block of Mlopezer is more than a little harsh. To me it doesn't seem as though they meet any of the points discussed at WP:DISRUPT, and they have never been warned for any of the dozen or so examples of overlinking or any of their other edits. To be clear I'm not in any way connected to Mlopezer, I just saw your revert at Amanda Reid on my watchlist. Regards, Gricehead (talk) 10:10, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

User:Larry M NeeleyEdit

Who do you suspect this is a sock of? Should a SPI be filed? Mjroots (talk) 20:11, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

@Mjroots: As I found out later, it's Allenroyboy. Graham87 02:06, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
I was about to check if sock edits were reverted since and noticed that you already did, many thanks, —PaleoNeonate – 19:54, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
Wow and I just learned that you are using JAWS... I'm impressed that it's possible to navigate article history and evaluate revisions as well. Thanks again, —PaleoNeonate – 20:03, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Recent IP Block - March 2020Edit

I applaud you for dealing with IP - that behaviour is totally unacceptable of them. But considering what I saw on their talk page, I think the IP is only here to be disruptive; they obviously aren't taking notice of the block seriously enough. GUtt01 (talk) 18:32, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

@GUtt01: Yeah I did notice that ... I thought I'd just let them be, unless they did anymore of that, which they haven't so far. Graham87 03:08, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

Merging historyEdit

Can you help me merge User:KAVEBEAR/sandbox/Hui Aloha Aina with Hui Aloha ʻĀina? I had the article waiting in my sandbox until another user created a stub. The bulk of the content from sandbox was merged into the article so it is important to restore the history of the article from its inception in 2016. KAVEBEAR (talk) 15:35, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

@KAVEBEAR: Done, even though it's not strictly necessary in terms of attribution of authors (which is what history-merging is technically for) (since you were the only editor of the sandbox). However, it's nice to have the time of the edits readily available and there were no overlapping edits, making the history still fairly straightforward. Graham87 15:51, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
And it's also nice to have the *number* of edits you made readily available too ... I forgot about that! Graham87 15:55, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. KAVEBEAR (talk) 16:01, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
