September music[edit]

September songs
my story today

Our festival's last concert was most moving and inspiring, - also the story of Walter Arlen, - today I'm proud that I survived the decision in WP:ARBINFOBOX for 10 years, standing and singing -- Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:27, 11 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Today's story is about a great pianist with an unusual career, taking off when he was 50. It's the wedding anniversary of Clara and Robert Schumann, but I was too late with our gift. Just for fun: when do you think did Mrs. and Mr. Schumann get their infoboxes, and by whom? (The answer can be found here, but please think first.) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:42, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Both articles are 21 years old… so I’m guessing they got info boxes long ago? Courcelles (talk) 14:26, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes. But both after the Composers' RfC, and he even after the arbcase. And both no problem, no discussion, no revert, imagine ;) (and of course both not by me, - I made her GA much later) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:32, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Today I remember Raymond Arritt, who still helps me, five years after he died, per what he said in my darkest time on Wikipedia (placed in my edit-notice as a reminder), and by teh rulez. - Latest pics from a weekend in Berlin (one more day to come). --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:23, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I just got to hear a group of students practice a song about the aurora and dark Alaskan nights. While it is unbearably hot and humid and bright outside. Some days I wish I had the talent to really even hear music, much less produce it! Courcelles (talk) 17:50, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Temporary RPPD request[edit]

Hello again. Wondered if you would be willing to drop these ten pages to Extended Confirmed temporarily for me to fix the WP:LINT errors on each? If any are not subject to temporary lowering, that is fine. I assume the same conditions as past similar requests, and will notify you when complete.

Thanks, and welcome back. Zinnober9 (talk) 13:55, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Zinnober9 I somehow missed this. Apologies. All done, but I will be restoring them when you're done (mainly due to bot spam, since these are actual talk pages, not archives.) Courcelles (talk) 15:09, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not a problem, and I wasn't in a hurry. I am all done with these now, so back to full they may go. Thank you for your assistance! Zinnober9 (talk) 04:57, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
All restored. Thanks. Courcelles (talk) 12:54, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your block of 2A00:23C7:69B8:701:0:0:0:0/64[edit]

Quack, quack.   –Skywatcher68 (talk) 18:19, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This /64 blocked for 3 months. Courcelles (talk) 18:57, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I thought they were probably a sock, but there wasn't enough behavior for me to figure out who the master was. Can you tell me? Thanks.--Bbb23 (talk) 11:46, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Couldn’t get much further than them being behind the compromised account image vandalism, sadly. Courcelles (talk) 18:39, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is there only one image vandalism sock farm? Is there a "master"?--Bbb23 (talk) 19:40, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This appears to be a confession as to a master? Courcelles (talk) 19:44, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Talk about the tangled web we weave...--Bbb23 (talk) 21:05, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Old IP indef[edit]

Hi, Courcelles. I'm going through old IP indefs. Special:Contribs/ is the first CUblock I've gotten to. Does it still need to be blocked? If the answer is "yes", then that's that, but thought I'd ask. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she|they|xe) 21:38, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The SPI this was targeting has been inactive for a few years, so unblocked. Courcelles (talk) 12:57, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Translit vandal[edit]

Hello, it appears that someone with very similar editing patterns to a sock you blocked a few month ago is editing under the ip Special:Contributions/ 13:59, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Month off for the IP. Courcelles (talk) 22:16, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Possible Masterofroblox sock[edit]

Could you check if PicassoPlent is a sock of Masterofroblox? They've started to use the AntiVandal script without rollback, which is something multiple previous socks did. The last sock I know of is JaioLang, which looks stale, but maybe there's some newer data that could be used. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 19:56, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh, good lord… who was it, they’re filed under a different master, that was doing exactly this this Spring? No hard CU proof, but that’s not a newbie. Courcelles (talk) 22:15, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think it's the same person as DoubleBaconBap, Malaruxus, and GettingRoofedFaYah (I can't remember if these are all one group of socks or not), but those are all stale and there's not much behavoural evidence to go on. I'll keep an eye on their contribs and edit my script so they can't use it without rollback. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 23:07, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ingenuity Going off the CU logs says those accounts and the current one are using the same (exceedingly large) ISP. But it’s not one geolocation is meaningful for. Courcelles (talk) 00:42, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I wanted to know how the date turned out. Knitsey (talk) 22:51, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ROFL! Courcelles (talk) 22:51, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you're still hanging around (or any tps), can you rev/del this [1] please? Thank you, Knitsey (talk) 23:04, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done. And introduced to my block button. Courcelles (talk) 23:05, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, Knitsey (talk) 23:06, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Another sock for your collection[edit]

Westerosi456H, H3sam, Canadianelite345, Amirreza-Astro21...and the beat goes on. - LuckyLouie (talk) 15:44, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Appreciation on ANI[edit]

The Mediator Barnstar
I wanted to personally thanked you after taking an action on WP:ANI [2]. Honestly, I confused between Integrity or Helping Hand, but in the end I choose to give this one instead.

Thank you very much for your actions. I really appreciate it.
