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.

Being bothered by User:Pi zero[edit]

He is bothering me with rubbish each edit. He is never contributing. He deletes articles comments sites here, although the article is existing. Articles under development are clean up articles. I might not write about RB Leipzig. My started articles have interest and he says that other archived articles are which from amateur clubs, university clubs or something else. He wants to rename my name here and is not rename me. My articles are written after the style such as about other proven football match reports. He is psychic unable to name reasons. Please remove him from the board! He neither productive nor socially competent or educated, for a globally representative on public free sites. --Nikebrand (talk) 21:47, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Nikebrand (talk · contribs) has earned xemself a 72-hour block for mass-spamming admin pages, and trying to post month-plus-old news (i.e. not news, but history). Xe has been pointed in the general direction of Meta, where user rename requests are carried out. Talk page is not blocked, so xe may-well wish to appeal that block duration; I won't complain if someone decides to shorten the block, but please only do so if you believe some 'clue' is being taken on-board. --Brian McNeil / talk 07:27, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

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)
