Requesting a block for a violation of policy? Wikinews:Blocking policy states that administrators may block users who "excessively and consistently break site policy. Admins should only do this as a last resort - efforts to educate must be made first, followed by warnings." Admins can not and will not block unless this policy is followed. Please do not raise an alert here unless efforts to educate the user have been made, and warnings have been given. If you have an ongoing problem with another user, you should consider Wikinews:Dispute resolution.

Threatening users[edit]

I've just blocked a vandal whose ravings included this, which caught my eye because it's the second time I recall on en.wn seeing something that might be interpreted as a death threat — the first time being less than a month ago, when I blocked a vandal whose chosen account name was I'll Kill You 1221. I've requested a CU on this.

Who does one inform of death threats? --Pi zero (talk) 00:42, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

I've been pointed at w:WP:VIOLENCE; putting together an email now. (And, sent.) --Pi zero (talk) 02:28, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
WMF acknowledges receipt (several hours ago, actually). Thank for the report. Philippe (WMF) (talk) 04:46, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Philippe. —Tom Morris (talk) 07:00, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
CU confirmed they're the same IP, btw. --Pi zero (talk) 12:00, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

abuse filter mismathch for Page blanking[edit]

I extensively edited Gotham Classic page. These changes do not represent any negative intent. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Raycella (talkcontribs) 17:59, 26 October 2014‎ (UTC)

Anonymous spam[edit]

Over the past day and change, we've had a fairly steady stream of advertising/spam from anonymous IPs. I've been giving each of them a 24 hour block, and I see Mikemoral has done a few that way too. We've handed about two and a half dozen of those so far. Presumably this is the result of our addition to a list somewhere. --Pi zero (talk) 12:36, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
