  • Доброго вам дня, Корсар94! 

    Пишу вам с просьбой прояснить ситуацию с блокировкой моего аккаунта силами VSTF. Дело в том, что за последние несколько месяцев я вообще нигде ничего не редактировала и не писала, а потому блокировка акка за спам и вандализм мне вообще не понятна. Не то, чтобы я страдаю от подобной ситуации, т.к. вряд ли вернусь к комментам и редактированию в близжайшее время, но мне хотелось бы прояснить ситуацию, чтобы понимать, где мною допущено нарушение и если оно есть, то узнать ,каким образом подобное случилось. Заранее благодарю за помощь! :)

    • Привет.

      Проблема была в том, что один из твоих IP адресов использовался спаммерами и, как можно ожидать, попал в глобальную блокировку. Отсюда все вытекающие. Я снял блокировку, сейчас должны быть всё хорошо. Если ещё возникнут проблемы - дай знать)

    • Оу, вот она как. Впредь буду теперь знать, что и так могут подставить. :D 

      Благодарю вас за помошь в решении данного вопроса! Обязательно пристану с вопросами, если опять возникнет какая-нибудь проблемная ситуация! :D

  • Hello there. I'm Dynaboom, a Moderator for the Toontown Rewritten Wiki. We've been getting a lot of vandalism from EpicMan and his sockpuppets (thank you so much, VSTF guys for cleaning most of it up). The socks EpicMan used have been blocked, sometimes across the entire Wiki, but a user named "The Wikiator" has been blocked too.

    This post is getting pretty big. I can't personally do anything about The Wikiator's global block, but I hear you can undo it. I don't know if I believe The Wikiator or not, but I'm giving you my side of the story and his side of the story because he MIGHT be innocent.

    The Wikiator claims he is not EpicMan. He claims EpicMan wants to frame him and wants him banned across Wikia. Wikiator has made a few socks to dispute the the accusation behind the block. In Live! Chat, he sounded really upset about the idea of Wikia taking legal action (and the sound of sirens). And he told one of our Bureaucrats why he's disputing it on the (30200) Reviving discussion because... Thread.

    The Wikiator (under a new account) told me his side of the story in chat, then repeated most of it the next day in the (30159) Hi! Thread.

    The Wikiator said he was using a VPN to modify his IP address (and that didn't cause any problems at first). He said EpicMan was able to get in the VPN and use it to circumvent our Wiki's Auto-blocks so he could use bots to cause major vandalism across our Wiki's Pages. Wikiator was in chat during the attacks along with our Wiki Staff (and this one user with 8 edits that kept getting in and out of chat. She made good edits in the past and might have been having technical trouble with the chat).

    The Wikiator actually helped us clean up the Wiki's vandalism, but he also had this thing where he would revert an edit, get an email about the edit he reverted, and it would automatically cause his account to revert the revert and put the vandalism back on the Page. He later fixed this and cleaned up a lot without a problem. I think he did a lot more good than harm under that account.

    The Wikiator actually warned us about the vandalism attacks before they happened. Source: (29775) EpicMan Thread. By the way, The Wikiator didn't leave a direct link to EpicMan's quote in his comment. I've looked for evidence of EpicMan saying this, but I haven't found it. Also the date/time he listed (19:38, May 20, 2016 (UTC)) might be a little off because this threat would have been made AFTER the attacks started and a TTR Wiki Bureaucrat warned a TTO Wiki Admin about it (158518) on her Talk page at 19:34, May 20, 2016.

    Edit: The time on the EpicMan quote is correct. You'd think EpicMan wouldn't contribute as an anonymous user. Hmm... http://fatkidscreamingatcallofduty.wikia.com/wiki/JJ_Giglio#comm-179

    I suspect this (29864) Question. Thread was a major factor in The Wikiator's global block. I think this was really close to when he was blocked. He was logged off, so you could see his IP address. If EpicMan was using the same VPN, then Jr Mime might have been able to recognize it. Wikiator seemed to have trouble staying in chat. Kept on entering and leaving, before and after his block. (I was actually under the assumption that Jr Mime was the one who globally blocked The Wikator.)

    After the block, Wikiator told me via chat that EpicMan was probably a tenant of his Dad's. Wikiator's dad caught EpicMan trying to use the apartment to house a vandalbot so he kicked him out. Wikiator says EpicMan probably has a grudge against him for this reason.

    Wikiator also says he keeps getting emails from Wikia calling him EpicMan, as if he's the one making the edits. The questions I asked him about that lead him to believe his email had been hacked. Personally, I would assume a brute force attack would be more likely. It's possible EpicMan has the email password The Wikiator uses for his account. His email could be compromised (but I wouldn't know for sure).

    Once again, I'm not 100% sure if I should believe The Wikiator or not. I kind of want to believe him, but I have to admit, the situation he's in is pretty suspicious.

    The thought that The Wikiator and EpicMan could be the same person is a weird thought for me. On the Wiki, we kind of assumed that Louis Belasco and EpicMan were the same guy. I don't have any evidence of that theory to link to at the moment, but it's been in the back of my mind for a while. So if you add The Wikiator to the mix, it gets really confusing for me trying to figure out who's who and who's not who.


    Hey, thank you so much for reading this. Thank you for your time. :D It's ok if this doesn't change your mind about his block, but I didn't just want to stand on the sidelines and not say anything, ya know? Thank you for spending time to help other people and Wikis.

    Have a nice day, man.

  • I was just marking nonsensical pages/categories for deletion on that wiki. There is a rule on that wiki which says that no poorly written and/or pointless pages aren't allowed. I edited the "Stub" template here, and I wasn't vandalizing it. I marked the "International Day" page for deletion because real Peppa Pig episodes weren't allowed here, but I wasn't vandalizing it.

    • Welp, you could just add template on top of page, but instead of this you've replace all page's content via it. Isn't it a vandalism?

      I'll just add the template at the top of the page instead of replacing the content with the template.

  • I hope you do not mind, but I really like your userpage template so I was wondering if I could have your permission to borrow the code.

    I was playing around with it earlier, but I cannot seem to get it to work properly on a different wiki without using the specific image you have set to the template, which is odd. I can change the image fine here on Community Central but I have issues changing the image on another wiki. Do you think you can help me out with that?

  • Hello, Kopcap94... I just got something in hand.

    Well, I gotta say first, that this is unpredictable. I never got any issues in the past few months, and suddenly, this popped out:

    Your user name or IP address has been blocked.

    The block was made by Kopcap94.

    • Reason given: This username or IP address is prevented from editing across the entire Wikia network due to vandalism or other disruption.

    If you believe this is in error, please contact Wikia. The blocker also gave this additional reason: Spam.

    • Start of block: 12:37, December 5, 2015
    • Expiry of block: 15:58, February 26, 2016
    • Intended blockee:
    • Block ID: #170249
    • Current IP address: 112.215.66.69

    You can contact Kopcap94 or another administrator to discuss the block. Please include all details in the above box in any queries you make

    I have no idea what has happened, and I didn't do anything wrong in my current home wiki, Comic Crossroads. I would like to know why. But on the other hand, sometimes, I got automatically unbanned for an unknown reason. Also, before I got "your ban", somehow I got an auto-ban from VSTF, but I got unblocked again for some few minutes.</p>

    Can you tell me what's going on?

    Thanks. Sincerely-J50A

    • Your IP address keeps switching to different numbers, where one of these numbers is a globally blocked one. It was not intended to hit you (block you).

      After having a quick look at some statistics, I have decided to unblock that IP address, meaning you shouldn't get blocked when you keep switching IPs again.

    • Ah i see....

      Thanks for the help, Mime. Thanks for the unblocking. Now I can resume my work in peace :)
