Great WIGO idea[edit]

I like the flags :)-Not Anonymous user (talk) 03:52, 7 January 2018 (UTC)My f****** bad!-Not Anonymous user (talk) 20:02, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

@DiamondDisc1: Sorry to burst your bubble, but I proposed the idea. Kazitor generously created the template. By the way, thank you @Kazitor, for the template.—チーズバーガー • めん Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 04:03, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@CheeseburgerFace Just the other day, someone gave Christopher credit for something I'd done, so now I'm fine. We just need to give you credit for something Cristopher's done now... And no problem with the templates, I was planning on doing that myself. Some regular expressions can go a long way :) —Kazitor, pending 04:09, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

Moderator election results[edit]

See the results here. 32℉uzzy; 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 03:39, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

If you're bored[edit]

Would you mind doing me quite a large favour and running your election prototype with the December 2016 ballots (including the controversial votes)? If you're busy or don't want to that's completely fine. CowHouse (talk) 02:55, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

@CowHouse fortunately, writing it up in Python makes using new data quite trivial. It gave:
12 : FuzzyCatPotato
10 : Reverend Black Percy
8 : David Gerard
5 : Bongolian
4 : Applesauce
2 : Avengerofthe BoN
2 : Avengerofthe BoN

Oh dear, looks like it sucks when it comes to users with the same scores. Alright, I'll see if I can sort this out. —Kazitor, pending 06:42, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Also, keep in mind that this is using my variation, where one user appearing and not another is treated as no preference. —Kazitor, pending 06:51, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, Kazitor. Do you mind recalibrating so that appearances are counted as preferred? Avengerofthe BoN's matchups should end up looking like this. CowHouse (talk) 06:54, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
I think your variation changes the results significantly. For instance, Applesauce and Avengerofthe BoN are placed much higher than they otherwise would be. CowHouse (talk) 07:13, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, I'll get to that. It'll take a bit more effort, and I'm sure you understand that there are some things I'd rather do than simulate a system that might not even be implemented. Of course, there isn't that much I have to do. So, I'll give you the dreaded (at least, when I say) "soon". —Kazitor, pending 06:57, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
You have no obligation to do this and I'm sure you have better things to do. I wasn't sure how long or difficult it would be to recalibrate (I was hoping easy and quick). If I knew it wasn't easy and quick I wouldn't have asked. I definitely appreciate your help Th hug.gif CowHouse (talk) 07:13, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Also, if you need help with anything let me know. I owe you a favour at this point. CowHouse (talk) 07:17, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Nah, it's fine. Like I said, I did that because I needed something to do. That reason still applies. —Kazitor, pending 07:22, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Thank you...[edit]

...for dispensing freedom and democracy over the horizon taking IP addresses out of the Vandal Bin. Nerd (talk) 23:35, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

It's far easier than removing pri was. Left hand on f3 and paste, right hand on mouse. The pages load faster, too. —Kazitor, pending 23:36, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Only problem is I can't hide the entries from the logs. But, who checks the logs like they do with recent changes? —Kazitor, pending 23:38, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Err... I am guilty of that sin. Comrade GC (talk) 23:43, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Anyone who vandal bins is, really. How were we supposed to know the auto-binning was permanent? Once I'm done (which hopefully won't take too long), I'll consider making a pull request to prevent IPs from ever being binned, automatically or manually. —Kazitor, pending 23:45, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Oh whoops, completely misunderstood you. You were referring to checking the logs, weren't you? —Kazitor, pending 21:38, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

I Suppose[edit]

In addition to blocking the spammer I'm supposed to delete the page. Instead of marking as patrolled, what am I supposed to do? — Unsigned, by: Antigem / talk / contribs 11:44, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

@Antigem You said you use a mobile, right? This might not work there, but Top menu (where it says read, edit, etc.) -> More -> Vaporise. Set reason to spam. And please don't permaban IPs. —Kazitor, pending 04:12, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, figured I screwed something up there along the way, that's why I made sure to point out I was getting in over my head. I'll review the guide before doing that again. I do have the Vaporise option. However, with the mobile I don't have all options. For example I can't rate articles.Antigem (talk) 11:11, 8 February 2018 (UTC)


Zup. Sorry for the vague description. Found a link for a Wikipedia page with CC 3.0 license and paraphrased the most of it. (øndergaard) Interestingly, he rushed to have his followers spam it to death and then get it deleted.

No plagiarism here. Revert? — Unsigned, by: WillObeyForCookies / talk / contribs

@WillObeyForCookies Not sure what you're asking, because I already reverted it. Feel free to rework it into something of your own, but just don't copy and paste. —Kazitor, pending 11:36, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
@Kazitor Sorry for being unclear. I meant revert the revert, as it's not copy/paste, even though my comment definitely could be read that way. The original content was CC 3.0 license, not published anywhere, and reworked before posted here + a bit completely new content. I might give it a go some time in the future if more rewriting is needed. - WillObeyForCookies (talk) 11:54, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
@WillObeyForCookies Ah, right, sounds fine. I wasn't particularly successful finding where that information had come from in the first place, like I said I reverted because of your summary. Feel free to put it back if you did change the info significantly. —Kazitor, pending 21:53, 14 February 2018 (UTC)


I doubt three months will be enough, this guy’s been going since at least early 2017. Christopher (talk) 15:38, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

@Christopher I had just looked at the recent history of that article and it looked to me like they'd only been at it for about three months, so I thought another three would be sufficient. Obviously they've been at it for longer, but the time can be adjusted further if they continue to go at it. Thanks for bringing that to my attention though. —Kazitor, pending 03:24, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

My sandbox page[edit]

Hey! Thanks for keeping an eye on my article and undoing that edit, but I did actually give approval (in another place) for that user to edit. Apologies for not making that clear, but thank you for your vigilance. Gremlins (talk) 10:03, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Ah, sorry. I was just looking at the comment up the top, hope it didn't put that user off. —Kazitor, pending 10:49, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Lomax Vandalizing[edit]

Hey, bud is there any way to delete a revision that that troll pulled on my user page? It's annoying to see it in my revision history.リムルテンペスト 02:20, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

@Rimuru Tempest as a sysop, you can do it yourself: view the diff (i.e. the "prev" link, this), next to the edit summary it says "(change visibility)", go there and check the boxes corresponding to what you want hidden. Hope that helps :) —Kazitor, pending 02:57, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
Thx for the help.The RW Ninja 03:05, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
