Open Proxy question[edit source]

Hi, I saw you blocked an IP as an open proxy. Hiw did you determine that it was a proxy and why are they not allowed here? (I know the IP was vandalizing, I was just wondering why open proxies in general aren't allowed here) Sei (My changes here | Drop me a line) 18:27, 22 April 2022 (UTC)

i think it sent nonsense, so i fix it block .--想舞花 (talk) 23:34, 22 April 2022 (UTC)

It did, but Q8j also said it was an open proxy. I've seen that term used in blocks on Wikimedia, but I don't know what open proxies are, how to find them or why they're bad. Sei (My changes here | Drop me a line) 23:37, 22 April 2022 (UTC)
[1] find it Search open proxy list and vpngate.--想舞花 (talk) 23:46, 22 April 2022 (UTC)

About my admin privileges[edit source]

Hi, I see you removed my admin privileges for the reason that I was removing a steward's block. I intended to restore the main block once I was done with my testing, I was just experimenting with different block settings. Can you please give me my admin privileges back please? Sei (My changes here | Drop me a line) 15:20, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

  • I don't care whether it's intentionally or not. As a fact, you (effectively) removed steward's block after warning.
    • To be honest, I don't believe you didn't intend to remove that block. But that's not the reason for rights revocation.
  • I've told you not to test with that block and you replied "I'll just refrain from testing blocks until May 15."
  • I'll re-grant your admin rights 2days(48 hours) later from this moment unless steward decides not to do so.--Q8j (talk) 16:08, 2 May 2022 (UTC)
Okay, I understand. I'll be more careful with my privileges from now on once I get them back. Sei (My changes here | Drop me a line) 16:13, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

User:Matttest[edit source]

Hello, Q8j.

Your block towards User:Matttest was unjustified and quite frankly, disrespectful. You had abused your power in doing said block. Can you please explain how they were "clearly not here to test" as you stated in the block reason? Regards. Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 07:39, 30 July 2022 (UTC)

  • I think your action was "unjustified".
  • I can't quite understand that you don't think "they are not here to test tool". To avoid wheel war, I won't revert your action. If you think I "had abused your power", feel free to ask stewards to remove my rights.--Q8j (talk) 12:30, 30 July 2022 (UTC)
What behavior in the RFP made you think they were here to be purely disruptive? (This isn't a rhetorical question, I am genuinely asking.) Justarandomamerican (talk) 12:47, 30 July 2022 (UTC)
  • Making comment(especially negative one) and doing nothing else, itself. Many user's first edit is to request right. As a fact, there are approximately 20 BCs and almost all of them's first edit is to request permission at RFP, introduce themselves on UserPage, or some test on sandbox. In the other word, directly or indirectly, their first edit is to test tool. Though I've been BC for long time and handled many RFP(for admin or BC), I rarely see newbie come to Community Portal and comment to Stewardship request. For the record, I said "not here to test", I didn't say "disruptive".--Q8j (talk) 13:12, 30 July 2022 (UTC)
Whilst this block was made in good faith, I just cannot see any policy grounded reason behind it. It's suspicious for sure, a new user coming on to the Community Portal as their first edit, especially to make a comment on an RfS, but, I would either consult with a steward and ask for a CU, especially with recent impersonation, or have a consensus based discussion with the community on the Community portal. I was thinking you were doing a NOTHERE (account created purely to disrupt) block, with slightly different wording, sorry. --Justarandomamerican (talk) 13:19, 30 July 2022 (UTC)
Honestly, I can't agree with your opinion. But, as far as I'm not inclined to revert Sav's action, I don't think arguing with you is meaningful. Still I'm grateful to you for stating your opinion as third person.--Q8j (talk) 13:39, 30 July 2022 (UTC)

Q8j, let me make this clear by posting what was said by said user on the Community Portal.

  • In what situation will you use the CheckUser tools? What's the purpose of CheckUser? --Matttest
  • With the bureaucrat rights, you can already execute lpts of non-test actions. Which exact areas are you going to help out as a steward? --Matttest
How are any of these a "negative comment"? I would like to know what this user did wrong to warrant a block, as in my opinion, this was done irrationally and not in good faith as what @Justarandomamerican: said.Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 14:46, 30 July 2022 (UTC)
I’ve already made my position very clear and there’s nothing for me to say anymore. Especially, since you think my block was "not in good faith", I think discussion would be completely meaningless.--Q8j (talk) 14:55, 30 July 2022 (UTC)
To avoid confusion, I'm making my position clear again(Most likely, this would be the last of my statement regarding this matter.)
  • When I blocked them, I believed they should be blocked. And I still do. Thus, I disagree with unblocking. But, it(unblocking) is already done. So I don't revert it.
    • I don't revert it for 2 reasons. First, as I said, to avoid wheel war. Second, though I still believe they should be blocked, I don't insist.
  • As for steward, they may reblock the account again. Or they may endorse unblocking. Or they may do nothing. In second case, it means they conclude my action is inappropriate. They may decide to revoke my permission. In any case, my position is, "so be it". If owner of this wiki decide to accept Matttest or reject me, I don't have right to object that.
  • Reasons for my action is already stated clearly and I won't do that again. It's meaningless.--Q8j (talk) 15:49, 30 July 2022 (UTC)

Though behaviourally speaking, this block was a bit weak and best left for a Steward, Q8j's "gut instinct" ended up being correct in this case. Matttest has been confirmed as a 100% technical match to the recent impersonation only and vandalism only accounts, and has been CheckUser blocked indefinitely. Note this had concurrence from both Stewards. Thank you, too, to DarkMatterMan4500 for their diligence in reporting the impersonation only accounts. Dmehus (talk) 22:33, 31 July 2022 (UTC)

@Dmehus: Hello! Matttest is user from Miraheze, or impostor for this user? AlPaD (talk) 12:40, 3 August 2022 (UTC)
@Q8j: - Hello! I wish to apologise for not taking your side when it came to the block of Matttest. You did very well with sniffing out the suspicious contributions and for that, I applaud you. Once again, I am sincerely sorry, keep up the great work. Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 17:59, 3 August 2022 (UTC)
@Sav: Thank you for your understanding!
As all of you said, though Matttest was sockpuppeter, my actions were not 100% right. I could have leave it to stewards, but I didn't. It's because I wanted to avoid it affect ongoing voting, but I could have, for example, set partial block for Community Portal only and ask stewards to endorse, expand blocking.
When I blocked the account in question, I was calm. But after you, whom I trust, removed the block and objected that, I was lack of calmness. For that, I owe you an apology as well. I'm sad to see you thought my action was "not in good faith", but it's partly my fault.--Q8j (talk) 08:56, 4 August 2022 (UTC)
