Sockpuppet problem notice:

Hello CooleyBoy10,

I am writing this to you tell you that I have been noticing that you've been having some sort of sockpuppeting trouble with a user who calls themselves Jackson. Would you like a Steward to perform a CheckUser on accounts relating to Jackson? I sent a report about this issue to the #cvt channel via Discord and hopefully either Dmehus or Void could fulfill this in hopes of stopping his sockpuppeting behavior. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 20:22, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

CooleyBoy10 I was going to reach out to you about the above actually, but I do need some context on the original block for the originally blocked user, so I can investigate whether user accounts policy is likely to have been breached. Would you mind providing me that context on the original block reason and the originally blocked user? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 20:25, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oh wow, I wasn't expecting this....yes, that would be greatly appreciated!
So, if I remember right, the user was originally given a temporary block, because he was adding unnecessary edits to certain pages and causing edit wars as a result. So then he tried making a sockpuppet account (literally named "Jackson Reverts") to evade that temporary block--which turned it permanent.
Now he's been running along repeatedly making socks to try and continue his behavior. I'm gonna try and make a list of all his socks, hold on. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 20:51, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

He's pretty easy to spot, because he continually makes edits to the same few pages (Kari's Logo Here and one user's to-do list being two of them). CooleyBoy10 (talk) 20:53, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
CooleyBoy10 Okay, thanks. I'll take a look. Was Jackson's World originally warned somewhere as to which rules were being violated? If so, please link that as well. If not, then I'd be inclined to lock only the sockpuppet accounts and advise the user how to properly appeal their original block. Would that be acceptable? Dmehus (talk) 21:09, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I don't recall ever warning him--IIRC I was probably going to the second time he did it on Jackson's World. He actually went and then made a separate account for reverting edits immediately afterwards, which was the last straw. That was when the edit-warring started--and given he made a sockpuppet with a clearly malicious intent, that was when I banned him.
So, no, I don't think he was ever actually warned firsthand, but while is an acceptable compromise...I think the maliciousness of his first sockpuppet outweighs that idea in this case. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 21:22, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
CooleyBoy10 okay, thanks for the response. I'll look into this a bit further and reach out to other Stewards for input on the best course of action. Dmehus (talk) 21:28, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You're welcome, and thank you too! CooleyBoy10 (talk) 23:50, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
We've been waiting for quite awhile. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 16:17, 19 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus You think Void could have his take on this? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 17:34, 19 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
DarkMatterMan4500 I'm looking into it, and will discuss with Void and other Stewards in due course. Please do not keep asking about the status every few hours. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 17:41, 19 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, sorry about that. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 17:42, 19 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
CooleyBoy10 Apologies for the delay in following up with this, but I'm going to investigate potential abuse of user accounts policy; however, because of the lack of a talk page warning on the noted original account as to what local policies the user was violating that to their block, I'd be inclined to leave the noted original account unlocked and just lock any sockpuppet accounts, as applicable; however, I would like to be able to direct the user to their local wiki user talk page where they can properly appeal their block. Would you be able to restore that user's talk page access? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 21:36, 25 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, I just had a look at the user list and it turns out Jackson’s world isn’t the original account. User:Jackson Lumby was registered back in November Hb1290 (talk) 22:24, 25 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hb1290 Ah, thanks. Not sure if they still have access to that account, though, so may want to leave both user talk pages open. Dmehus (talk) 22:34, 25 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I doubt he has access, given he continually makes sockpuppets under somewhat different names. Wouldn't shock me if he used dummy emails and passwords for spamming a la Duc4Wikifoundry. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 01:29, 26 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
CooleyBoy Even still, would you mind restoring talk page access on Jackson Lumby and Jackson's World? Little harm in doing so. If he vandalizes his talk page, then we know he has access, and clearly isn't here to constructively appeal their local block, and talk page access can be re-revoked and the final accounts locked. Dmehus (talk) 22:41, 26 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Sure. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 00:01, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
CooleyBoy10 Thanks. That's great. I'll take a look at the potential abuse of user accounts policy and, if and as appropriate, implement measures to guide the user back to their original account(s). Dmehus (talk) 00:09, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
CooleyBoy10 Twelve sockpuppet accounts locked. I've left Jackson's World and Jackson Lumby unlocked, and guided the user to login and appeal their block(s) locally on their user talk page if they wish to edit constructively here, following your wiki's style guidelines. While they should not be able to now, please do let me know if they opt to create other additional sockpuppets instead. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 00:30, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Alright (thumbs up) CooleyBoy10 (talk) 22:44, 27 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Question:

What makes you think that Home at School is a sockpuppet of Jackson's World? I'll pass this over to either Void, John or Dmehus if necessary. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 20:40, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

The three-word/random word-salad name (a la "Logo Are Fun", "Enter the New Style"), and the account specifically editing TV vanity card pages. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 20:46, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
CooleyBoy10 Thanks for letting me know that. I have reported the suspected sock directly to Miraheze's Discord server via the #cvt channel. Hopefully either Void, or Dmehus will have a look at it soon. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 20:48, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I mean, most of this wiki's content pages are TV vanity card pages, and the username alone wouldn't really amount to much. From my perspective, I don't see a need for further action from stewards here. Dmehus (talk) 21:03, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus It's good that I asked, right? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 21:07, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It's never a problem to ask, yeah. Dmehus (talk) 21:11, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You are right, it's just that he tends to usually edit the same few obscure pages over and over again. Both of the pages Home at School edited were previously repeatedly edited by Jackson in the past. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 01:48, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Bad sockpuppet problem

CooleyBoy10, I have bad news for you right now, AR99 is created an sockpuppet account called "BEN10NYSON10". Can you please block the two users? Thank you. Links: https://closinglogosgroup.miraheze.org/wiki/User:AR99 https://closinglogosgroup.miraheze.org/wiki/User:BEN10NYSON10 --Prodigy012 (talk) 17:01, 20 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Can you explain to me how the two accounts are related? CooleyBoy10 (talk) 20:14, 20 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Another bad sockpuppet problem right now, is Sebgamer clgrulz is created 2 sockpuppet accounts. Can you please block the three users? Thank you. Links: https://closinglogosgroup.miraheze.org/wiki/User:Sebgamer_clgrulz https://closinglogosgroup.miraheze.org/wiki/User:Sebgamer_clgrulz2021 https://closinglogosgroup.miraheze.org/wiki/User:Sebgamer_clgrulz20xx --Prodigy012 (talk) 17:19, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I blocked those, but again, can you explain to me how AR99 and BEN10NYSON are related? CooleyBoy10 (talk) 22:25, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well, AR99 was a bad user back in last month, but now he's a good user and not a sockpuppet anymore as of right now. I apologies for that. --Prodigy012 (talk) 17:38, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yet another bad sockpuppet problem as of right now, is ClaytonAndDonaldDuckYesSquidwardNo is created an another sockpuppet account called "HappyTreeFriendsYesBubbleGuppiesNo". Can you please block them? Thank you. --Prodigy012 (talk) 19:08, 27 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Consider using User Reports to report this sort of thing next time. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 20:35, 27 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

A question regarding 2 users you blocked for being a potential sockpuppet of ThePBSArchive2020/PBSArchive:

How did you come to the conclusion that RaphyDoucetPictures and Raphymoviecollector2001 were sockpuppets of PBSArchive, so I could have Dmehus have a look into this, if it's possible? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 20:16, 30 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I saw it on the CLG Wiki:User Reports page. The reasoning there ("Judging by the edits they made on Company Bumpers Wiki, I suspect that they are a PBSArchive sockpuppet.") seems fairly plausible to me, considering how notoriously stubborn spammers sadly are on logo wikis. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 20:21, 30 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
While that is INDEED very strange, I'm actually shocked that ThePBSArchive2020 hasn't been locked himself, in spite of the cross-wiki vandalism. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 20:23, 30 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Helpful piece of advice

If you see any users named "Jackson", block them immediately. CrazySpruiker2001 (talk) 23:59, 11 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Oh that's pretty much a Pavlovian instinct for me at this point. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 01:03, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

No kidding! CooleyBoy10 (talk) 12:06, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'll apply that to my wiki. Also, the Company Bumpers Wiki should be protected against the "Jackson Socks". (get it?) A LogoFun13-YT Post / (talk) / 13:34, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Ban of Jack Jackie Pomi

Hello. You recently blocked me as "LIKELY a Jackson puppet". For you to notice: I'm not related to Jackson, it's just a coincidence that our nicknames are similar. I'm different person, registered on Wikipedia (since 2015), Fandom (since about 2019), Wikimapia (since 2018) and Youtube (since 2015), without any vandal edits on them. On all these sites I'm Jack Pomi or Jack Jackie Pomi, my full nickname that i created about two years ago, with Jack Pomi being in place since 2017, derived from Jack Pomidorov in 2016.

It's great that you have disocrd server. Cutting off my abilities to write messages on the wiki was your bad idea. Only via discord I managed to contact with another administrator and ask for unblocking.

And some info: "If you see any users named "Jackson", block them immediately". I'm not Jackson. If you see that kind of advice to block everyone, please check that user is a puppet and is not totally different person, if that's possible. Jack Jackie Pomi (talk) 06:55, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Not Cooley- one of his fellow admins, but apologies for that. Jackson was making socks left and right in the last week. We kind of had to adopt the "block all Jacksons" approach given the rate at which he was making accounts. I suppose a legitimate editor with the same name was bound to get caught in the crossfire eventually. He's been IP-banned now so this shouldn't be an issue for now. Hb1290 (talk) 10:09, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I hope no one will block me by mistaking me with that <insert any word here> named Jackson. Jack Jackie Pomi (talk) 10:12, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You'll be fine now that we know you're not him Hb1290 (talk) 10:18, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
And that's great. Well, topic could be considered solved and closed now. Jack Jackie Pomi (talk) 10:19, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'm really sorry for the ban. Like HB said there's been a HUGE influx of sockpuppet accounts made by a kid called Jackson, and I took that unwritten "rule" too literally. Even though I shouldn't have banned you in the first place I should've enabled the comments/emailing for you to let you clear your name. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 16:29, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That kid almost ruined my account here. Glad that Discord is a thing. Jack Jackie Pomi (talk) 17:13, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I hate to disturb you, but....

... there is sock account named Jenny898 that is a Ngozikal/Jordan K. Ene sock that needs to be blocked. Need proof? Check the real name of Jenny898. LF13-wiki1.png LF13-wiki2.png / 22:05, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

ThePBSArchive2020

Hi CooleyBoy10,

I've locked the latest socks (permalink) Would you mind restoring the user talk page access for the likely master account, so the user can properly appeal? As an administrator best practice, talk page access should never be revoked with an initial block, and should only be revoked where the user engages in nefarious activity and/or vandalism.

Thanks so much,
Dmehus (talk) 04:32, 7 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Done. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 18:09, 14 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Requesting you revert this block

Hi CooleyBoy10,

Following this request at Stewards' noticeboard, I'm kindly requesting you revert this block. Thinking someone has violated the wiki rules != knowing someone has. Even still, I'm not seeing where you engaged with the user, ideally multiple times, via clear and specific warnings before blocking indefinitely, in accordance with and consistent with the Code of Conduct, a global policy to which all Miraheze users are obliged to follow.

Thanks,
Dmehus (talk) 08:12, 2 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

There is a rule on this wiki about "backseat moderation": "If you are a registered user, you cannot and must not pretend to be a staff member." Does repeatedly editing template pages without permission (including copying some from Wikipedia) and spamming own user page and the forums count as "backseat moderation"? As CooleyBoy said, it felt like having an unauthorized admin here. PM pinter (talk) 12:44, 2 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I apologize for not doing that/being clearer. But like PM said I'd argue Rezal was constantly backseat moderating all throughout his time on the wiki, including editing template pages without permission and acting like an admin on the Requests for Adminship page and on his talk page/the forums.
My logic was that, because he was still spamming despite being warned and blocked from the forums, he wouldn't listen to any warnings and needed an immediate block. Like I said however, I apologize for doing that immediately. CooleyBoy10 (talk) 14:27, 2 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
CooleyBoy10, okay. That's quite a weak block reason, to be quite honest, considering it could be argued that users posting requests for blocks at your administrators' noticeboard is functionally akin to "backseat moderation," at least some of those requests anyway. I'm not seeing where you've clearly warned them but nevertheless, I'd appreciate you providing a clear advice to the user regarding this, to use userspace sandboxes for drafting pages, to asking an administrator to review their sandbox pages before moving them to (Main) namespace, to use edit summaries, to understand the proper use of multiple accounts, and to unblock him with that guidance. The user is very good-faith. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 05:38, 4 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Unfortunately it looks like PBSArchive is starting to wise up. He's used "Availlabillity" instead on this new page and it seems to have gotten him around it. Might want to add that to the filter along with the phrase "the logo was", though the latter one could be riskier in terms of false positives. HibiscusCrown20 (talk) 16:53, 25 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
