Blocks of non-Latin script usernames 編集

Hi again Bakaba,

Community non-official CVT volunteer DarkMatterMan4500 was wondering about your mass blocking of a bunch of (presumably similar) non-Latin script, non-English usernames on this wiki. I advised them that local blocks are with each wiki's purview to undertake, provided they're done in accordance with the wiki's community consensus-established rules and/or common sense and our global policies, of course. The thing I'm wondering, though, is what these usernames translate as, and do you have reason to suspect two or more usernames are related to a single user in contravention of user accounts policy? If so, can you let me know what the usernames translate as and point me to some behavioural evidence (deleted or live) that indicates crosswiki or long-term abuse? If there's sufficient evidence that justifies it, I can aid your wiki in performing a further technical investigation to see if additional preventative measures can be put into place.

Separately, DarkMatterMan4500 wanted to ask you something similar about this, but was prevented from creating pages as he is not autoconfirmed. Entirely up to you, but if you wish to grant him confirmed privileges on this wiki, temporarily until he is autoconfirmed, I can say that he does do useful, constructive counter-vandalism work.

Hi, the account was related to attacking a certain admin, みどり, one of our admins for their past uploads. The thing is that the similarity is hard to detect by auto-translations because the attacker takes advantages of Hiragana, Japanese characters, in a way that is still understandable for Japanese natives but not for machine translations. One of such names makes us imagine "voyeurism," which of course is not true.
As far as I know, the attacker is a single-wiki LTA attacking us before our migration, but not a cross-wiki issue. We might ask for help to CVT if they get out of our control, but so far the situation is under our local control. by Bakaba talk/contribs 2021年1月19日 (火) 01:45 (JST)
You could also request a global lock if you wanted to. DarkMatterMan4500 (トーク) (contribs) 16:53, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for your notification. We might consider requesting it if
  • the LTA goes cross-wiki, or
  • they create an account with an obvious violation of m:Username Policy (without any given context on our wiki; so far, their usernames are offensive here on chakuwiki, but not necessarily without any information on other wikis).
However, we find a local indef is enough for now.--by Bakaba talk/contribs 2021年1月20日 (水) 19:53 (JST)
In that case, those usernames could and should be reported as soon as possible. Not to mention that I've been keeping an eye on those suspected LTA accounts coming from the cvt-feed via Discord. DarkMatterMan4500 (トーク) (contribs) 1:58, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

あなたは開拓者さんなのですか 編集


  • Special:CentralAuth/Bakaba - あなたのアカウントが作成されたpiowikiは開拓者さんの個人ウィキですよね。どうしてそんなところでアカウントを作成したのでしょうか。
  • 開拓者さんとBakabaさんはどちらも涼宮ハルヒシリーズの大ファンらしいですが、これは偶然ですか。僕にはそうは思えません。
I got confirmation from him via Discord, telling me how he was once a Steward of Meta until his resignation in around May of 2020. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 1:24, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

I think we need to launch an investigation into this sort of sockpuppetry (and possibly meatpuppetry) immediately. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 15:15, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Bakaba=開拓者説は事実です。Mirahezeではコミュニティごとにアカウントを使い分けることは、グローバルポリシーに照らして何の問題もありません。中の人が同じであっても、活動領域が異なるBakabaアカウントと開拓者アカウントには、同一人物であることを認める義務もなく、活動領域が異なる以上互いの関係を明かさず別人のふりをしても、何ら方針に照らした問題は発生し得なかったのです。
  • 同一人物と知れた以上は今後は「倫理的な」問題は発生するかもしれません。そのあたりはこの先注意すればよく、遡及適用をすることには意味はありません。
  • Twitterについては、「よそはよそ」ですので、問題があるならそちらで直接お話ししましょう。
  • WikipediaとUncyclopediaの書き込みは私ではありません。英語版UncycがWPを舞台にドロドロの争いをしていたのを見て、ああはなりたくないと思ったものです。--by Bakaba talk/contribs 2021年1月24日 (日) 00:28 (JST)
Oh, sorry. Guess it was a lack of communication. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 15:35, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
It's all right, sometimes things just happen.--by Bakaba talk/contribs 2021年1月24日 (日) 00:36 (JST)
Again, I'll be keeping an eye on the User Creation Log, as I think it does need a bit of thorough investigation, and so, to keep your identity safe, I won't reveal anything else. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 15:44, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
なおWikiには手間と時間がかかりますが、実際に現実でそれだけの時間をあまりとれないくらい多忙なのは事実です。--by Bakaba talk/contribs 2021年1月24日 (日) 00:59 (JST)

Still think it's about time to get the Stewards' attention? 編集

I've been noticing some what you may have suspected to be suspected LTA accounts still coming to vandalize, and one of them possibly questioned your integrity. Well, you did clarify that you were once The Pioneer on Miraheze and an ex-steward, so I think it's about time to raise the output and give them the notice, so they can investigate them and possibly lock them up. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 15:00, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, it looks like バスター has gone cross-wiki, trying to attack us admins on Usopedia and loginwiki as well, and for that case it deserves a global lock.--by Bakaba talk/contribs 2021年1月24日 (日) 00:47 (JST)
In that case, I think you should tell them that on the Stewards' noticeboard as soon as possible. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 15:49, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

TwitterでのSPAM行為 編集


My apologies for that revert overkill: 編集

I apologize for making a revert overkill, as I clearly was trying to revert basically everything around that said vandalism that the vandal left behind. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 01:35, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

It's alright. I know there's a language barrier here because the wiki is written in Japanese. I hope our communication can help to get rid of it.--by Bakaba talk/contribs 2021年2月13日 (土) 08:50 (JST)
