Wikivoyage:User ban nominations

From Wikivoyage
Jump to: navigation, search

User bans are put into practical effect by using a Mediawiki software feature to block edits to any page (except pages in that banned user's user talk namespace) by the banned user.

Add nominations for user blocks to the list below, but please do so only after reviewing Project:How to handle unwanted edits. After a nomination has been made, the nominator is responsible for ensuring that appropriate notice is given on the allegedly delinquent User's Talk page of the nomination made here.

In general the preferred way of handling problem users is through the use of soft security. In the case of automated spam attacks the Project:Spam filter can also be a valuable tool for stopping unwanted edits.

For a history of older nominations see Project:User ban nominations/Archive.

User: 2600:1000:B03B:28AB:FD2C:5180:DAF0:373C[edit]

Just arrived, but should we permanently block the user already? I've provisionally blocked this user for 24 hours, unusually including their user talk page, pending a decision. For a very clear explanation, see Wikivoyage user contributions and global user contributions. This individual seems to be at the very least a very angry and unconstructive editor. Does anyone disagree with a permanent block? If so, what course of action do you recommend for this unpleasant individual? Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:37, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

P.S., Please read this message. Do you think we should accede to his request? Considering that User:Ebyabe isn't editing Wikivoyage at present, it's not likely that anyone would need to post a new message to his user talk page, but we could protect it only against unregistered users or whatever.

IPs should never be permanently blocked, but given the history on other wikis a block of a week or more would be within policy. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:46, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
My talk page protect should be enough. The user (under various IPs) does this when they get blocked on Wikipedia. They also attack User:MarnetteD and User:Sro23. The latter don't appear to have accounts here, so just blocking my page should be enough. It worked when they attacked me on my Tardis Wikia page. Cheers. --Ebyabe (talk) 22:48, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
Should we protect his user page, and also protect his user talk page from edits except by registered users? Anyone object? And what about a month's block for that IP user? Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:52, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
I changed the block time to 1 month. I doubt anyone will disagree, but if you do, hey, go wild. :-) Meanwhile, what about that edit protection? Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:18, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
Ikan, if the user himself is requesting protection for his own talk page, I can't imagine why we shouldn't. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 06:18, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
User and user talk pages protected, only autoconfirmed users. Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:23, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks all. You are the best. :) --Ebyabe (talk) 16:51, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
Glad to help. And the door's open for you to come back and do more editing here whenever you like. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:58, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
