Requested GS action and was blocked 1 day by GS Hasley. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 20:33, 15 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks :) Belwine (talk) 20:37, 15 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For future such situations, and there seems to be lack of local to act, the fastest way to stop such vandals is to post a note to meta:GS/R for them to act. If you have irc you can also hop into #wikimedia-gs to seek help. @Belwine:. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 20:46, 15 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, will do in future. Thanks again. Belwine💬📜 20:46, 15 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can an administrator please delete the page User:, as a test page? Abuse filter 16 disallows me from editing that page. Thanks, --Ferien (talk) 08:23, 24 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Twinkle Gadgets[change]

Hi, there seems to be some problems with the display of the gadget Twinkle, see the screenshot for details. Please fix it, thanks! Stang 16:52, 25 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Stang: Hello. The local version of Twinkle is severely outdated and the traffic here is too low for someone to update and maintain it. I suggest that you use m:User:Xiplus/TwinkleGlobal instead. Minorax (talk) 08:56, 26 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

IP cross-wiki harassment[change] keeps harassing me. He's the same as Can an IP range block please be made? This has been going on constantly cross-wiki... Nehme1499 (talk) 20:07, 3 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Does this word really exist? There are no other entries in the other versions of Wiktionary. I have checked Genius (6th edition), OLEX (2nd edition) and Progressive (4th edition), these are one of the most popular English dictionaries in my locality, but I cannot find such word. If possible, I think this entry should be protected to prevent future creations. MathXplore (talk) 10:57, 12 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The article has been created again with no improvements and references. I believe this entry must be protected. MathXplore (talk) 09:09, 16 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done.--Brett (talk) 10:38, 16 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Looks like full-protection is needed. MathXplore (talk) 09:45, 17 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You made it edit-protected and move-protected, but it needs to be create-protected. Lights and freedom (talk) 17:30, 17 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's right. In addition, I think the creator should be blocked. He's not here to build Wiktionary. MathXplore (talk) 08:10, 18 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
