Hi Yamla. Like for PerkinsWheeling, if you notice an account is confirmed to a globally locked user, you can report it to m: SRG. I did so for you. [1]. This also applies to Samlatop's IP socks. --HurricaneTracker495 (talk) 13:59, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

A UTRS complaintEdit

Hey Yamla. Thanks for your assistance the other day with a guy regarding Spanish colonization of North America. But just now I looked at this UTRS and noticed you were handling it. I have only one bit of information to add: The IP remains covered by a colocation-webhost rangeblock, and I don't see any reason to lift that. He complains about a certain IP of his being covered by that block, but the edits of that IP seem to be mostly vandalism. He also says he has a registered account which is being inconvenienced. (I think I can't say the name). If you look at the registered account, it is currently (on 27th November) making reasonable-looking edits to business-related articles. So he must have a way of reaching the internet that gets around the rangeblock. So I would be looking at how to decline his appeal — unless there is more to the story. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 01:34, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Oooh, excellent point. Thanks. I should have followed up with that UTRS request some time ago now, it's slipped to the bottom of my todo list. But as you point out, an unblock is not actually necessary. I'll follow up tomorrow (it's late here now). Thanks for the additional really useful information! --Yamla (talk) 01:53, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Could you tag and raise the block from 31 hours to indef (since you've tagged other Pcgmsrich socks) and they are clearly a duck, just compare Special:Diff/991433063 with Special:Diff/991044249. Thanks. Dylsss(talk contribs) 00:29, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
