Completed blocks section[edit]

Wasn't this supposed to have a section for completed blocks? Or did I miss that conversation? --Connel MacKenzie T C 23:44, 27 April 2006 (UTC)


In the same vein as the section hereinbefore, wouldn’t it be a good idea to have an archive for this page? † Raifʻhār Doremítzwr 00:24, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

w:WP:DENY, so no, probably not. --Connel MacKenzie 00:26, 10 September 2007 (UTC) · (The section above, refers to keeping them for one week, but moved down to a separate section.) --Connel MacKenzie 00:27, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
OK. I suppose it wouldn’t serve much purpose anyway. † Raifʻhār Doremítzwr 00:31, 10 September 2007 (UTC)


I supposed if people are vandalising this page, at least they aren't vandalising other pages. Mglovesfun (talk) 08:40, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Possibly asking ClueBot to be ported over here to help with the vandalism?[edit]

Hello there all. I just wanted to suggest a possibility of maybe getting some kind of auto-revert robot like ClueBot on the English Wikipedia to help with the vandalism around here. We could even go so far as to have it be an adminbot that could delete certain pages that are clearly vandalism and to block offenders. What do you guys think about this suggestion?

I've thought about it before, I don't think Wikipedia's ClueBot would be terribly useful here without much modification, as we get very different types of vandalism (ours is mainly nonsense page creation, they don't allow anonymous page creations, for example). It would take a considerable amount of programming effort to make such a beast for Wiktionary and ensure that it only does what is expected of it - it might be better to try and get the AbuseFilter extension from Wikipedia and use that (though it looks outrageously complicated too).

adding new entries[edit]

I find it peculiar that in the subpage Wiktionary:Point of view pushing new entries are added at the top, whereas here it is done at the bottom of the page. Should we not unify the approach? And begin adding new entrias at the top here too? The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 08:15, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Unified. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:00, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

Turkish users (info)[edit]

moved from the subject page Keφr 16:55, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Recently, user 123snake45 has been accused by some IP's. I'd like to respond to that.

When 123snake45 was a new user and didn't know much about Wiktionary, (s)he assumed that it was a good thing to add "suggested new words" to Wiktionary, so (s)he went ahead and created buzulkuşu. Both here and at tr.wikt, that entry was deleted shortly after. The admin at tr.wikt explained to 123snake45 that "suggested new words" shouldn't be entered; once 123snake45 understood (that took a while), (s)he no longer tried to add those "suggested words".

The person who is accusing/attacking 123snake45 now, is the Turkish IP user who created all those other Turkish "suggested new words" that don't meet CFI (let's call him our Turkish vandal for shortness' sake). The vandal is pissed off, because 123snake45 knows him (and his invented/suggested/rare/... words) from elsewhere and nominates them (=our vandal's words) for deletion/verification.

To discredit 123snake45, our vandal recently recreated 123snake45's old word buzulkuşu, and then blamed 123snake45 for it. Just another of his many games to fool you all...

Although 123snake45 had a "bad start" at Wiktionary, (s)he now works constructively, and also helps to clean up those non-CFI-meeting Turkish words (here and at other wikis). (As a relatively inexperienced user, 123snake45 might make some errors with formatting/wiki rules, and/or there could be some errors with English spelling/grammar, but that's outside the scope of this all...)

I thought you might want to know what's going on. -- Curious (talk) 17:54, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. — Ungoliant (falai) 17:58, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
If you look at the recent rfv for buzulkuşu, you'll see that I already laid out the evidence for that, though you've given fuller context and clearly stated what I merely implied. It was pretty obvious what was going on to anyone who looked at the edit histories and paid attention to which IPs did what. Chuck Entz (talk) 18:14, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Sometimes 123Snake45 doesn't use his user name but you can see that he may be still trying to add his fabricated words to the wikis. (Look at the records for the words like çevircek, sıvıtçıl, binecek, etc.). He is an "IP user", too. -- 19:52, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
