Block request[edit]

Can anyone block the "159.69" range of IP addresses? I think it is unnecessary to block individual IPs in that range. They are inserting spam/promotion and false information (including the "Windows Server 2000" craze) (oh no, I hope I don't get hit by the filter!). --2.27.117.122 16:12, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

No. There is no reason to block a whole /16 range as of now. --Ryuzaki (talk) 16:37, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Why not? --2.27.117.122 16:47, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
There is a difference between blocking 1024 IP addresses and 65,535 addresses... --Ryuzaki (talk) 16:50, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Well, can you at least protect the Windows Server 2000 page from creation to prevent any more YusufT19 accounts? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.27.117.122 (talkcontribs)
That's pointless, he would create other equally useless redirects. --Ryuzaki (talk) 16:27, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
I actually agree. The abuse filter would be useless otherwise! --2.27.117.122 17:09, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Wrong link[edit]

The PearPC link on the main page links to a page called “PeacPC” Is this the intended behavior? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Meow (talkcontribs)

I fixed that a few hours ago. Also please remember to sign your comments with four tildes: ~~~~. --Ryuzaki (talk) 21:15, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! Meow (talk) 00:12, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Adding another application[edit]

Can we please add Opera in the Applications catagory? The page already exists. Meow (talk) 14:09, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

That page is too short to be linked on the Main Page (and will probably be deleted if nobody shows interest in expanding it), so not for now. Please raise further Main Page topics at the proper talk page (as you have done earlier) in the future, this is more suited for ban, protection, or similar requests that can't be finished without sysop privileges. --Ryuzaki (talk) 16:27, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
