August 2023[edit]

Your account has been blocked indefinitely because it appears to impersonate another Wikipedia user. Users are not allowed to edit with inappropriate usernames, nor is other disruptive behavior ever allowed. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} at the bottom of your talk page. For best results, please read the guide to appealing blocks first. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 07:43, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request reason:

Oshwah, It really is me. Scorpions1325 (talk) 07:45, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Accept reason:

Technical evidence shows that this claim checks out. Sorry about that! Most people I discover who are trying to impersonate other accounts with a close username aren't them and are doing so maliciously. :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 07:50, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Done. Welcome back! :-) I would advise redirecting User:Scorpions13256 and User talk:Scorpions13256 to this account. I'll also be happy to leave a dummy edit after your changes made there so that others know that I've verified your association with the other account through checkuser evidence. Let me know if that's something you'd like me to do... ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 07:51, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello, Scorpions1325,
I recommend mentioning your username change on your User page. I was very suspicious of your account when I saw an account with 101 edits offering to mentor another editor. And you had all of these advanced permissions! Messages on your User talk page get removed or archived so a User page note would be helpful for admins to be able to see that you are a longtime editor who changed their username. Thank you.

Administrators' newsletter – September 2023[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (August 2023).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, TFAs will be automatically semi-protected the day before it is on the main page and through the day after.
  • A discussion at WP:VPP about revision deletion and oversight for dead names found that [s]ysops can choose to use revdel if, in their view, it's the right tool for this situation, and they need not default to oversight. But oversight could well be right where there's a particularly high risk to the person. Use your judgment.

Technical news


  • The SmallCat dispute case has closed. As part of the final decision, editors participating in XfD have been reminded to be careful about forming local consensus which may or may not reflect the broader community consensus. Regular closers of XfD forums were also encouraged to note when broader community discussion, or changes to policies and guidelines, would be helpful.


  • Tech tip: The "Browse history interactively" banner shown at the top of Special:Diff can be used to easily look through a history, assemble composite diffs, or find out what archive something wound up in.

Blacklisted user due to old block[edit]

Hello Scorpions1325, I know you are a busy editor, as i can see from the libra chat #cvn-wp-en. On that note, I would like to let you know that you are still listed as a blacklisted user, informing #cvn-wp-en of most edits you make. While I know this is not urgent, it would be helpful to me and possibly others, if you were to remove yourself from the watchlist or get another admin to remove you from the watchlist.

Megabits000 I am not sure what you are referring to. I'll get onto it right away. Scorpions1325 (talk) 02:58, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
while i would like to send a picture, technology hates me some times so i have a copy of a notfication:
Blacklist [[en:User:Scorpions1325]] edited [[en:User talk:Scorpions1325]] (+197) Diff: "/* Blacklisted user due to old block */ Reply"
Let me know if you need the link to the chat where you're edits appear.

Megabits000 I am going to need a link to the chat as I do not know how to fix this. Scorpions1325 (talk) 03:01, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
here is a link to the chat on libera. you dont need an account to view it and if you make a reply it should show up on the channel #cvn-wp-en

Oshwah Is there anything you can do? Scorpions1325 (talk) 03:04, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm unsure of how to remove a watchlisted user, but perhaps the overseer you mentioned might know more.
Megabits000 (talk) 03:07, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Let me take a look at what needs to be done, and if I can do it, I'll remove you. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 20:28, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Alright, I've reached out to the appropriate people so that they can show me how to do this myself and without asking them to do it. Stand by; I'll let you know once I have an update... ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 23:49, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Scorpions1325 - I've checked the list for both this account and your old one, and I confirmed that you are not on any lists. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 00:06, 22 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
