Just in case you want to follow up, I just blocked 2603:6080:1506:6ADB:0:0:0:0/64, fresh off your three-month CU block. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:01, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Jamaica 1963, disruption in other projects[edit]

Zzuuzz, this account you checkuser blocked is now doing disruption at commons, wikiquote, and WikiData. Can this be stopped?--Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 19:31, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Anon IP - CU Block[edit]

A Anon IP have returned after the CU Block expired.Mr.User200 (talk) 13:19, 26 March 2021 (UTC)


Hi, you blocked Shellhost for socking. Are their last two edits deletable as attacks? If not, are they deletable as not having been placed by an arb or arbcom clerk? --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 10:46, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi Redrose64. Yes, they're deleteable for probably many reasons. "G5" would be appropriate, but I'm personally leaning towards just "Pointless". BTW, their co-blocked sock may be of interest to you, if you haven't already seen it. -- zzuuzz (talk) 12:34, 27 March 2021 (UTC)


I seem to remember there being a useful banner with instructions on how to rename or confirm the account when blocking. Just in case you too think it should be posted. Also, considering that an LTA is trying to get other editors blocked lately, I found the claim that jps may have tried to contact him very dubious and a red flag... Thanks, —PaleoNeonate – 18:40, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

The message they will both see when they try to edit is the contents of {{Uw-ublock-wellknown}}, so I personally think another notice is redundant. They both also have handwritten messages on their talk pages, so they know what's going on. Yes, there's something very wrong somewhere hereabouts. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:44, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Yes that should be enough then, thanks, —PaleoNeonate – 19:56, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

MarquinhosWikipediano et al.[edit]

Hello Zzuzz, do you think Curlpercy (talk · contribs), who commented on the SPI, is the same person? Thanks, Pahunkat (talk) 19:12, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

TBH, I think that is Jack90s15. -- zzuuzz (talk) 19:14, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Possible sock puppet[edit]

Hi again. I contacted you in February in regards to a sock puppet situation that you took care of. I'm not 100% positive, but I think the editor that you blocked from that case might be editing under the user GoWarriors151718. I think it's the same person because this user edits California-bay area related articles, similar to what their other socks did. GoWarriors151718's registration date was Feb. 27, which was 11 days after the last account that I reported, was blocked. So, the timeline sort of makes sense. Anyway, could you investigate it to see if it is indeed a sock of the original Cool_a123? Yowashi (talk) 04:58, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

I can see some similarities, and also some differences. I'd go along with your "not 100%". -- zzuuzz (talk) 14:56, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
The editor has resumed their block evading behavior under this IP address. This one is legit because it appears that you had blocked them back in February. Yowashi (talk) 02:48, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
Not sure if you got my message last time, but can you please do something about this sock puppet? They are currently operating under this IP account and Yowashi (talk) 03:57, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Jo Biden[edit]

Why does it appear template protected by using these search parameters?[1] Brainfrogk4mon (talk) 17:54, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello. This is because the page (it's a redirect) is actually template-protected, and this was based on a risk assessment at the time. If you look at the redirect target, it was sysop-protected for some time, at the time. I may lower it now you've reminded me about it. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:05, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
Ok. Thank you Brainfrogk4mon (talk) 18:26, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

MarquinhosWikipediano and related socks[edit]

Hi zzuuzz, I hope you're doing well. Not sure if you've already seen, but the filer of the most recent MarquinhosWikipediano SPI, Curlpercy (talk · contribs) looks a little suspect to me (AC gaming on userpage, immediate run-in with MW, then straight to SPI, plus [2] etc.) – there are too many socks mixed up in this for me to keep track, but I think it might be worth a look. Best, Blablubbs|talk 10:28, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

@Blablubbs: Take a look a few threads up. It's on my todo list (which currently isn't shrinking very fast). -- zzuuzz (talk) 10:36, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, completely missed that, my bad. Blablubbs|talk 10:37, 10 April 2021 (UTC)


Hello, I noticed that user Not a last resort uploaded this image file which contains your username and the file description reads "Transcript from an email exchange regarding a notorious Wikipedian". They clearly look like some LTA? --Ashleyyoursmile! 18:06, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Clarification about no evidence about compromised password[edit]

I looked through the edits made by me. There are two acts of vandalism, thats the first edits from this account on english wikipedia. Are those from the same device as the one about me being hacked? (same IP or however its checked) and the rest of the converation? Or was those two from another device? Since there aren't many edits made by me and NONE on the english wiki before this, there will not be much too look at. I acted quickly when I got emails about making first edit and vandalism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bobjörk (talkcontribs) 15:56, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

The device used to make the 'vandalism' on 8 May is the same device used here, approximately 10 minutes later, here, and everywhere in between, though the vandalism was made from a different network. For various reasons I feel confident that it is actually the same device. The same device (and vandal IP address) was also used to successfully log into the User:Bobjork account, who I assume is also you (correct me if I'm wrong), I assume with a password, which appears to be have been later reset by you, using the device you are currently using. In fact User:Bobjork logged in from both the vandal IP, and your current IP, using the same vandal device, within the same minute. -- zzuuzz (talk) 17:21, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

IP Hopping vandal[edit]

Hi Zzuuzz. Yesterday you blocked (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log) who was vandalizing Marxist schools of thought and related pages. Thank you. The same user is now back as (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log) and repeating the same vandalism. Any chance you could block that IP too? Thanks Laplorfill (talk) 18:00, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Thank you. Laplorfill (talk) 19:06, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Brescia LTA Ips[edit]

Hi. Malcolmx15 has been blocking these IPs when I bring them to his attention, but since you've just got two of them, you might also be interested in blocking and See here for background. Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:09, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

@Beyond My Ken: Thanks, I was wondering. See also the report by Laplorfill just above. Telecom Italia IPs are generally hugely numerous things with short timespans on enormous ranges. If they get re-used, then they become block-interesting. Maybe an edit filter? BTW, for a Tuscan analog see WP:LTA/SBT. -- zzuuzz (talk) 22:44, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
Both Malcolmxl5 and Acroterion have placed some range blocks, but avoiding collateral damage apparently makes it difficult. Thanks for your help. I have yet to zero in on anything specific which could be the basis for an edit filter. Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:03, 20 May 2021 (UTC)
See Filter ID: 1,134 for a Perugia analog! --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 00:16, 20 May 2021 (UTC)


Hello Zzuuzz, please also block his talk page, insults are not acceptable. Thanks and Regards --Serols (talk) 15:50, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

I think they just need a TPA-revoked time-out at this point. None of their posts on the talk page have been an unblock request (rather, continued PAs and arguments that are quite a bit NOTTHEM), and if they can somehow be construed as that, then they're clearly not understanding the reasons why they were blocked (nor do they address the likely block evasion). @Materialscientist: You marked the IP as CU-blocked. From behaviour, is the IP == the user? RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 17:54, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Hi. MS does not take pings (as seen on their talk page), and I'm not sure if they watch this page much. Personally, I think you're both being hasty. One solution to insults is to ask them to stop, which they have done, with an apology. Remember that being reverted and blocked when you're not an obvious vandal can be incredibly stressful. If they don't understand the reason for the block and the way forward, then maybe it hasn't always been explained well. Certainly all warnings given to this user were meaningless and irrelevant. All opportunities to discuss the matter ignored. I think a chat about resolving the issue will do them and us both good. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:31, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
I don't know Portuguese but this is clearly a PA, and behaviourally likely the same person, though of course at this point it might be best to just let them cool off and see if they resume when the block expires before giving out further sanctions. RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 19:20, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
this was not done by me and it was clearly done by someone who does not speak Portuguese because of some errors. My guess is that was done with some translator to look like I did it using another IP. Who would do that? I have a guess but I can not prove it, so I will not point fingers. Jafdfm (talk) 23:02, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
See range block. -- zzuuzz (talk) 19:20, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Given that there's a range block and not an indef on the user, I'm drawing the conclusion that you don't think they're connected? Feel free to correct me if I'm misinterpreting. —C.Fred (talk) 19:31, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for mucking in. The IPv6 range block mentioned above is for an unrelated LTA, VXFC, who is just stalking me, like they do. I'm satisfied with the length of block on the Jafdfm account (who may have had another account), subject to further developments, etc. I don't really don't want to go into other blocks, which you'll have to refer to the blocking admin/cu, unless I do, however I think for now there is no more to be publicly done about that. -- zzuuzz (talk) 19:41, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
I had a hunch that's what the IPv6 was doing. Sorry you have to deal with such nonsense from them. —C.Fred (talk) 19:49, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

It's not your IP and not a public Internet Service Provider? I'm not really familiar with that kind of thing. I wonder if AmandaNP might be a better person to ask. -- zzuuzz (talk) 06:43, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

Ghanaian phone number spam[edit]

I see you made a partial block on Today's target is Guinness Ghana Breweries and they have previously attacked other drinks articles such as Kasapreko, Accra Brewery Limited and Verna Natural Mineral Water. Previous discussion: Wikipedia:Edit filter/Requested#Ghanaian phone number spam. Certes (talk) 10:54, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

Thanks, I think the it's time to put them in the filter bin. Let me rustle up some numbers. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:07, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
They seem to have a lot of numbers. For now, I've extended the block. -- zzuuzz (talk) 15:53, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

Porirua Park/Jerry Collins Stadium[edit]

Hi Zzuuzz, I note you were involved in the fixes, moves etc. on these articles, looking via PCC, Porirua Park appears to still exist and is a multi-sport, multi-venue recreation area that contains Jerry Collins Stadium. So, I am thinking both articles needs to exist, be better defined and re-written to present day, with a small history section if needed. I can also find no references to "JC Park", seems an anomaly? Thoughts? The Original Filfi (talk) 03:18, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi. I can't recall the precise circumstances that caused me to get involved in fixing the attempted move, but I'm sure it wasn't because I have great knowledge of New Zealand sporting venues. What you are saying seems to make sense, so I trust you to do the right thing. Be sure to have a glance at WP:CWW so the original copyright remains clear, if you copy-paste any of it. -- zzuuzz (talk) 05:09, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

CU request[edit]

Moved from User talk:Oshwah § CU request – aeschylus (talk) 01:16, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

Hello, lately there has been activity from the Chuck/Sneed LTA. They created these two accounts:

Now, I see this account (not blocked yet)

As this LTA makes often makes sleepers to bypass auto-confirmed protection, I request a CheckUser to see if there are more sleeper accounts. Is it possible? aeschylus (talk) 00:27, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

Done, but CU is not going to be particularly effective at picking up sleepers. -- zzuuzz (talk) 11:04, 6 June 2021 (UTC)
@Zzuuzz, what makes CU ineffective for this case? aeschylus (talk) 12:05, 6 June 2021 (UTC)
Don't get me wrong, CU has some use, but it's a proxy-hopper, so there's no calculating the scope of potential IPs. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:59, 6 June 2021 (UTC)


Hey Zzuuzz, thanks for the revdel on my talk page. Laplorfill (talk) 05:15, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

LTA concern at UAA[edit]

Not sure if you saw, but there was a concern at this resolved UAA complaint about some users being LTA sleepers.
