Block request

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!). -- 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? -- 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 (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! -- 17:09, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Wrong link

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

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)

Automoderated user request

Can I be an “Automoderated user” I have not made any vandalism and, well, I don’t hope to anyway. -Meow (talk) 04:45, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

I am putting this request on hold, as you are a fairly new user and most of your edits were in the user space. Aside from that, I have no problems with promoting you to automoderated. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 09:29, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Windows 10 Wiki

Info on that wiki is copypasted over from here, can we do something about it? (For those who don't know that's a wiki run by the 2 kids Mpillager and Seb0no). --ATeamInc (talk) 07:56, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

Yes, we already know about it, and tbh it's not gonna last long, those kids are simply incapable of running a wiki. There's not much we can do about it, and it looks like their wiki is pretty much inactive, like most such wikis. Ovctvct (talk) 08:16, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
It's just a build list and BLItem templates at the moment. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:27, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
Just managed to get myself blocked from there, and what Ryuzaki said is true, there is only a build list and BLItem templates there at the moment. -Meow (talk) 19:03, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
SebOno just deleted all of the BLItem templates, it might be shutting down already. - EDIT:the pages are still being updated.Meow (talk) 22:13, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Automoderated user request

I think that I am a trusted user. By far, I didn't do any vandalism and I did a good amount of edits. My account is 3 months old(or more). I don't know what to write more. DrakonchikUA (talk) 10:44, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Request approved. ovctvct 12:30, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Automoderated user request

Hello! I'm back to BetaWiki after 5 months and I want an automoderated user request! Thank you! Caveria (talk) 15:29, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

✔ Approved a long time ago. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:51, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Automoderated user request

Hi. I've been a member of this wiki for nearly a year and did numerous constructive edits to it. Can you please make me an automoderated user? Windows OS (talk) 02:20, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

✔ Approved a long time ago. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:51, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Automoderated user request

Can I be an automoderated user? I didn’t did vandalism, and did lots of constructive edits. Now I don’t want them to go through moderation. (Sorry for build 3646 by the way)--Winins (talk) 19:05, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Automoderated user request

I've been almost for one year in this wiki and I returned after a long hiatus. I have various edits and none of them are vandalism. MarioMario456 (talk) 13:44, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Add a new abuse filter

Please add a new abuse filter that prevents users from adding these files to pages unless they are automoderated users to prevent sockpuppetry by Rain Ocampo:

Anons cant upload files

Could you please fix this problem? I keep getting "server unable to save temp file" when trying to upload, and my file is only 430KB in size.
Here is the file i want to upload: 16:59, 21 October 2019 (UTC) (MCpillager)

The new layout design

I have to admit, I am really impressed by this wiki's layout design. The watercolour design is exceptional and makes the site more colourful and less dull. --Dovelina (talk) 14:45, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

This new design has been here for about a year. Were you not on BetaWiki when this was implemented or are you just noticing it now?

-Meow (talk) 20:29, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Also, this is not the place to be stating opinions. The Community portal is a better place for these types of discussions. The Administrators noticeboard is a place to request actions to be done that require sysop permissions, if you didn’t know where to put your discussion. -Meow (talk) 20:34, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
