Unblock request[edit source]

Can someone unbock Ilyes before 5 April else his IP adress will violate the guidelines - 197.202.123.182

That is a great way to achieve the exact opposite of what you're asking for. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 17:39, 19 March 2022 (UTC)
You have two options: 1. Unblock me before 5th April or 2. Leave this site forever - 197.202.123.182

Please make me automoderated[edit source]

Please make me automoderated. XPBeta (talk) 01:52, 23 March 2022 (UTC)

First, automoderated hasn't been relevant in years. Second, you basically made 10 spammy edits to the Sandbox to satisfy the autoconfirmed criterion and then immediately asked for automoderated, so I don't know what you expect me to do. You have zero editing history behind you, so that's a big nope. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 03:16, 23 March 2022 (UTC)

Please unblock XPBeta[edit source]

He did nothing wrong, but it is a false positive. Please unblock him. I am using a VPN to post this, cause I don't wait my account to be unblocked. F**k you the abuse filter. 163.172.181.151 02:06, 23 March 2022 (UTC)

That's block evasion, and would probably get you blocked again. 36.231.29.242 04:21, 9 June 2022 (UTC)

Delete this account[edit source]

Hi, can administrators delete the user Ilyes as I no longer need it since I will not do edit conflicts with an IP/MAC adress. Thanks - 105.105.71.212

No, we can't delete accounts. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 18:11, 27 March 2022 (UTC)

SVGs should save as PNGs[edit source]

SVGs save as SVGs. Shouldn't they be PNGs? If there's any way to fix this, please do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.193.89.194 (talkcontribs)

Why don't you save them as .PNG then? ToMi (talk) 14:21, 10 April 2022 (UTC)
To clarify, all the other MediaWiki-based wikis have SVGs in some sort of PNG-based format. It doesn't seem to happen here.
Yes, that is very much intentional. SVG is supported by any reasonably modern browser, so there is no reason to convert it to PNG in 2022. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 14:56, 17 April 2022 (UTC)
No? SVG files can't be saved as PNGs. If you're talking about a way to export it as a PNG, then just save the thumbnails that are generated from the SVG. There are also online tools that can turn an SVG into a PNG. Jurta (talkcontribs) 14:06, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

Page restore[edit source]

Could be Category:Windows 10 Fall Creators Update builds restored? Thanks. ToMi (talk) 14:00, 18 April 2022 (UTC)

It was undeleted. 105.111.109.145 15:54, 7 May 2022 (UTC)
We say restored. 2001:f90:40c0:a072:d963:d209:5f65:74d9 19:14, 10 May 2022 (UTC+08:00)

Impolite editor:Starfrost[edit source]

The user unreasonably deleted my user page, if he is one of the administrators, should give a reasonable reason to delete this page. Otherwise, please give a reasonable ban or punishment according to the behavior of this user—MakiAdmin (talk) 06:35, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

Hey, sorry about that. We recently performed a clean-up within the Main: and User: namespaces and removed any pages that didn't appear to provide any useful content, fell under the WNR rule, were created by blocked users or were entirely unneeded redirects. I've restored all revisions of your user page and reverted it to the last revision made before yours was accidentally removed from the User: namespace. Again, I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the staff team caused. Have a great day! - pivotman319 (📫) 08:07, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

Change my username please (again)[edit source]

Hey, can any admin please change my username from "Bubblebeam" to "Uncle Captain"? Because I am starting to not like my current one anymore. Uncle Captain (talk) 01:11, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

According to Ryu (Me ) on the Discord server. You'll be able to change your name in Mid-september. The rules changed to one rename per year. Xeno (talk) 01:43, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
That's ok, I can wait until 3 September 2022. :) Uncle Captain (talk) 01:59, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
@Xeno But still, the guidelines still say 6 months. Uncle Captain (talk) 02:00, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
It actually says "If your account is at least 6 months old and you haven't already done so less than a year ago". So yeah, sorry. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 02:04, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

I want to change my username[edit source]

Sorry I entered the wrong username when I registered, so I need to change my username to "toorich" if nobody used this username. --北京 (talk) 15:26, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

You have been renamed. 105.111.109.145 15:53, 7 May 2022 (UTC)
Your time was 15:53 7 may 2022 UTC. And these 5 days already renamed. (...) 2001:F90:40C0:A072:6840:4743:E02B:B5F0 07:13, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

Restore a page[edit source]

Could Windows 10 build 10240.16425 be restored?

I have an issue with the deletion of this article. Let me explain.

According to gus33000 (https://discord.com/channels/305415513503432705/305415513503432705/792657232511893514), this build is a full build rather than a cumulative update.

Besides, I checked the update (windows10.0-kb3081436-x64_4f2d2481f0f3364635a185a20605aa8190c6c951.msu) mentioned in the QD reason. As said in the talk page, after applying the update the version string is 10.0.10240.16430, and only very few files have version number 10240.16425.

Based on the above information, I don't think this deletion is completely reasonable and request to restore this page. --BlueRain (talk) 06:37, 9 May 2022 (UTC)

Restored. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:6840:4743:E02B:B5F0 07:13, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

Block Jack Whiskers[edit source]

He is writing on the Win98 page sth about Rugrats, Toys R' Us (rip), Looney Tunes and Paramount. Before he continues with more vandalism, you should rather block him. - 2.207.30.181 (talk) 23:36, 14 May 2022

They have been banned. I think it's the most hilarious vandalism ever. But, around us, there may be some accounts that is ready to vandalise everytime. I hope the admins will keep track of all pages to see what is odd. Someone (talk) 02:07, 7 July 2022 (UTC)

The abuse filter blocks me from editing the Debian page![edit source]

I only wanted to add a new row for the version history wikitable, where the long-term support dates shall be listed, but the abuse filter blocks me from doing that due to "adding repetitive content". - 2.204.223.225 (talk) 12:24, 15 May 2022

There's something wrong with that edit filter. Looking into it. Starfrost (talk) 12:29, 15 May 2022 (UTC)

Can you make me a sandbox?[edit source]

I wanna use it for testing purposes & the page should be User:184.101.108.44/Sandbox with the sandbox template saying at the top "welcome to your new sandbox 184.101.108.44! please do edits that are to your own quality"- (184.101.108.44)

lol 2001:F90:40C0:A072:10D6:7825:C69E:30F7 05:45, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
why lol? it could be good or bad and every 3 hours you clear it - (184.101.108.44)
Becuase there is a user created his sandbox and it was deleted his/her ip: 100.11.93.56. And look your talk. Because I left you a message. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:10D6:7825:C69E:30F7 08:36, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
No. Create an account and earn auto-confirmed status if you want to have your own sandbox. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:36, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

What is the reason for you to delete my uploaded Whistler 2410 start page image?[edit source]

You can just overwrite it, and why JPEGs is rejected?. My image is 1366x768, while the new one is 1024. Someone (talk) 03:33, 28 June 2022 (UTC)

JPEG uses lossy compression. The screenshot guidelines mandate the use of lossless formats. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 13:58, 2 July 2022 (UTC)

Accidental upload[edit source]

I accidentally uploaded this image while trying to replace an existing file. Could it please be deleted? Thanks. -HawHoo (talk) 18:02, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
