F-TW (discussion cannot take place on For-Test Wiki)[edit source]

Myht seems to have been unreliable lately. I'm not too sure what's going on, nor if Matt is aware, but has gone down with 500s for 2 days in a row. Perhaps if we have another system administrator who can reasonably spend on it, it may be worth considering switching hosting method and domain for FTW. Justarandomamerican (talk) 01:36, 21 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree. Site outages have became quite frequent. I have emailed Matttest about these issues and volunteered to become a system administrator, but have not heard back yet. X (talk) 01:47, 21 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About protection[edit source]

It is not right to take away the user's right to object with an amendment. Please be careful to assume good faith. --LisafBia (talk) 13:36, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What do you mean? The user abused their talk page while blocked (added the word foo), so I protected it from editing so they won't abuse it. Whats the problem? X (talk) 13:42, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This was still not an inappropriate change. As I said, assume good faith. LisafBia (talk) 13:52, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I did assume good faith. Twice. I told the user to be careful when I granted administrator rights the second time, and they still abused them. They then abused their talk page, (adding the word Foo over it, here), so I temp protected it for 2 weeks to stop abuse and allow for appeals in two weeks. This is an appropriate action, and is justified. X (talk) 14:26, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your good care and quick blocking of this user I can really appreciate that;-) I agree with LisafBia that the user should have the possibility to appeal. In case of abuse, access can be blocked, but protection is not necessary. :-) Drummingman (talk) 14:01, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There was abuse (here), that's why I protected for 2 weeks, and after that they can appeal. Is this okay? X (talk) 14:24, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I know it. Thanks again for your concern. Should the user continue to disrupt instead of consulting about the block, then any admin and crat may revoke access by blocking it. Kind regards, Drummingman (talk) 14:40, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Why would we give this user special treatment? Convention is to revoke TPA or protect talk page upon disruptive behavior, which has occurred here. I genuinely don't understand why we wouldn't protect it for a few weeks to let the user think about their actions and to prevent abuse. X (talk) 14:44, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If a user is blocked, their talk page is for appeals only, and there is no need to wait for more disruption to revoke TPA or protect the talk page. This action was reasonable and preventative, not punitive. I agree with X. Justarandomamerican (talk) 14:51, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I believe the actions were also good and certainly not punitive, and revoking access at that time was also helpful and good. We are now almost a day away, let's see if the user continues to abuse? If yes? Then you can revoke access. I would like to give the user a chance to explain and appeal this blocking. I really understand your concerns, With collegial regards Drummingman (talk) 15:01, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, let's see. Thank you, Justarandomamerican (talk) 15:17, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sounds good to me. X (talk) 15:19, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your recent behavior[edit source]

It is not acceptable to call another contributor "petty and immature" in the course of a dispute. Doing so may be construed as a personal attack. Thank you, Justarandomamerican (talk) 16:08, 10 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I will refrain from doing so in the future. Apologies. X (talk) 16:17, 10 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No need to apologize, as this is a text-only platform where emotions cannot be discerned, disputes can boil over by one person's actions that would be neutral in a real life situation. I understand your point of view, but thought a reminder was appropriate. Justarandomamerican (talk) 16:26, 10 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I appreciate that, thanks. X (talk) 16:31, 10 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reconciliation[edit source]

Dear X, I extend my sincere greetings to you. I would like to express my formal apology for my previous behavior, which was neither acceptable nor excusable. I deeply regret my actions and the impact they had on you. I genuinely hope that we can reconcile and foster a positive working relationship as a cohesive team. I greatly admire the remarkable work you contribute here, and I hold a profound respect for you. With warm regards, Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 12:08, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I appreciate the kind words and offer my apologies as well. I shouldn’t have called you petty or immature. I was just very stressed with IRL stuff and wiki stuff, and I apologize for taking my frustration out on you. Thanks for your contributions here, and I hope we can constructively interact with each other in the future. X (talk) 12:29, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Much appreciated, here's to a fresh start. Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 15:10, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes. Also, what I said before about not commenting here, I take back. Feel free to comment here anytime @Sav. X (talk) 15:19, 19 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! I do understand your reasoning for saying that and I thank you for reconsidering your decision. Regards. Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 14:16, 20 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry for the peanut gallery comment, but, Sav, your behavior is exemplary here. You apologized and continued to be positive after the dispute. This is exactly what I wish to see in dispute resolution, but, obviously, I don't see it a lot- Justarandomamerican (talk) 18:26, 20 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Your peanut galley comments are always appreciated @Justarandomamerican, and I am also glad that Sav and I have made up. X (talk) 18:38, 20 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That is appreciated, thank you for the lovely comment. Sav • ( Edits | Talk ) 01:39, 21 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question[edit source]

Dear X, I still see on your user page that you would be retired? Since you are fortunately still active, would you please consider updating your user page? :-) Greetings, Drummingman (talk) 13:43, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Done, thought I had already done that, but I guess not. X (talk) 14:07, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Test Wiki[edit source]

Hello @X My account in The Test Wiki email is not getting verified when try to verify it says a confirmation code has been mailed to you email but the confirmation code doesn't get to email I tried it from different gmails and many time please tell me what should I do now. This is my account link: Nexovia (talk) 02:25, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I’m afraid I can’t do anything to help you here, as I’m not a steward on that wiki. The only advice I can give is to check your spam folder. X (talk) 12:33, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have checked my spam folder but there is also nothing please can you contact a steward there for my problem. Nexovia (talk) 13:00, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I’m sorry, I cannot. All of the stewards there have been inactive for a long time. X (talk) 13:11, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Can some other people do it instead of steward. Nexovia (talk) 13:13, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don’t think so. Maybe you should just focus on the Testwikis you’re currently on for now. X (talk) 13:14, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes I also think that Thank You. Nexovia (talk) 13:15, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And I have a question to ask you
How can I find if some one uses proxy vpn in this wiki or other. Nexovia (talk) 13:16, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You are not able to see the IPs of users and determine if they’re proxies, unless you’re a Test Wiki:CheckUser. X (talk) 13:18, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What action can I take as Admin and Bureaucrat. Nexovia (talk) 13:21, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Piccadilly inter wiki admin[edit source]

I've given it back to them as it's not that high trust, and they are still a sysop which is more high trust, and they have never abused inter wiki. Zippybonzo (talk) 04:55, 13 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
