Blocked. Talk page is only open for appeal[edit source]

Dear user, I have restored access for your talk page. It is only open to discuss and appeal your blocking. In case of abuse, access will be revoked (temporarily). I kindly ask you to think about what you want to test here and how you can start collaborating with other users. So far, I see disturbing edits and agree with X that you could be blocked for this. I look forward to your response. Sincerely, Drummingman (talk) 14:34, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Okay. So, who protected my user page and why? Username (talk) 22:30, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It was PB2008 and to be honest I don't see a need for it to be protected. I can lower the protection level. Seiyena (My Contribs | Talk to me) 22:36, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Edit: I'm sorry but apparently I have to be a bureaucrat to change the protection level on your page. Hopefully you can be unblocked soon. Seiyena (My Contribs | Talk to me) 22:38, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Done. X (talk) 22:39, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Block appeal[edit source]

Hello, I would like to appeal my block. For context, sometime earlier this month, admin rights were placed to my account per request, which were later revoked because I was mass deleting pages without specifying an actual reason other than, "content was: 'blah, blah, blah'", without obtaining community consensus first, and posting unnecessary delete requests to pages. Then last week, admin rights were reinstated into my account per another request. At this time, I was mass reverting another user's edits without a prior discussion with them. Consequently, those reverts were later reverted by another user, my admin privileges were once again revoked, and an indefinite block was placed on my account. Moments after, my TPA was also revoked because of this edit. After some time thinking about what happened, I came to the realization that I deserved this block because of the abuse of admin privileges/TPA and not communicating with other users first before posting those significant changes. And because of this, I apologize sincerely for my actions to the community.

I kindly ask of you for my block to be lifted. I admitted and believe I have reflected on everything I did per above. I will change this behavior so that I can prevent facing another block in the future. In addition, I will start to discuss/obtain consensus with others about large or controversial changes that I'm proposing or desiring, and respond to users' questions if asked about my edits. --Username (talk) 05:43, 28 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 On hold, awaiting a comment from the blocking Bureaucrat: @X: Anything to add here? Justarandomamerican (talk) 10:47, 28 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Nope. I trust your judgement here, feel free to unblock or not. X (talk) 10:50, 28 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Unblocked. This convinces me that the block is no longer necessary to prevent disruption. Justarandomamerican (talk) 11:59, 28 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Making mass changes[edit source]

If you are going to make mass amounts of changes, please add the bot flag to avoid flooding recent changes, and then remove the flag afterwards. Zippybonzo (talk) 10:48, 2 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I decided to make a second account to make those mass amount of changes without them flooding the recent changes. Username (talk) 18:19, 2 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your CSS[edit source]

Can I also use your namehighlighting.css? Is it possible to incorporate it in my CSS? TenWhile6 (talk | SWMT) 14:11, 13 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Merging[edit source]

Why was the decision made to merge the lists of bureaucrats and administrators? Surely it makes logical sense to have them as seperate lists? Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 04:42, 5 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question, recent merge[edit source]

Hi, Username! Whilst I, and the community at large, appreciate your work, there is an issue I would like to bring to your attention. In your recent merge of user rights categories into one central category, you knew that it was likely to be controversial, and yet you failed to seek community consensus. Why was this? Justarandomamerican (talk) 17:41, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do you have an answer to this, @Username:? Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 15:45, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Discord[edit source]

Hi, Username. I've banned your main account from Discord because I believe it was compromised. Please recover your password, and I will unban you. If I am mistaken and it was not compromised, then it will remain banned for spam. Justarandomamerican (talk) 19:48, 26 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry for the late response. But yeah, my account was compromised. It is fine now. I'm truly sorry for all of that. Right now, I'm setting up some extra layers of security for my account so that this won't ever happen again, and my password has changed. Username (talk) 20:27, 26 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Can you unban me now, please? Thanks, Username (talk) 02:57, 27 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have done so Justarandomamerican (talk) 12:19, 27 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question[edit source]

Does your list update automatically, or do we need to update manually? Like, I set the grace period for some users, so do I need to change the colour of "Inactive" or it happen automatically? Harvici (talk) 09:16, 9 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The latter. You must update the list manually. Justarandomamerican (talk) 21:45, 9 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Script[edit source]

Hey Jody, you recently put a comment on my userscript: "Yeah... please find another page to work this script on."Umm, my script finds archived section through broken links; it won't do any harm to the pages and I also need archives Harvici (talk) 01:23, 16 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

And also, I don't intend to wheel war,but you removed the community and permissions archives back to their original location so can you tell me if I did something wrong as the nomenclature in other wikis to symbolise something as an archive was "Archive[number], i.e., the prefix archive followed by an number which doesn't start by 0 Harvici (talk) 01:23, 16 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Another thing my userscript is used to find the archives of the pages Harvici (talk) 01:24, 16 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
