Welcome to Wikidata, Ciphers!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familarise yourself with:

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Request reason:
Hi, User:Rschen7754. This actually comes at a surprise to me, a shocking surprise. I've been an editor on Wikipedia and sister projects for over 10 years now, but I believe my account has been hijacked somehow since I've been editing on both phone and computer while traveling over the past few weeks (multiple IPs, and VPNs). I just checked my global contribution edit log and noticed all the low quality edits you were referring to ... I mean why would I leave a speech-like note in my edit summary?? That's just stupid :/
Anyway, I'd appreciate if you can look into the block here (I also noticed that I'm blocked on :enwp, and :enqt) should a steward need to be involved in this? I have checkuser access on arwp, and I'm worried that someone might abuse that access. Please respond to me here or via email. I do check my secure email regularly. Best regards and thanks again for your delegence in this matter. --Ciphers (talk) 14:54, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Decline reason:
As your account is globally locked for more than a month per [1], I decline this unblock request for now. If you manage to gain control over your account again and the global lock is removed, you may of course file a new unblock request. —MisterSynergy (talk) 08:38, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

At this point, if this is true, you will need to contact James Alexander as well as stewards. I do not have access to CU data and cannot verify your story. Your CU access was already removed by WMF. --Rschen7754 19:29, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, Rschen7754. Really... my CU rights are gone?! :/ I wonder how did that happen ... anyway, I know James has got his hands full with stuff all the times, so I don't want to bother him with the minute matters of blocking & unblocking. Do you know any steward or stewardess whom I can reach out to help me out? no rush though ... I can certainly live without being on enwp or wikidata for a while :) --Ciphers (talk) 02:28, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
It is because of your former CU status that WMF (and James) has intervened in this matter. --Rschen7754 02:31, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
Rschen7754; ah ok. Thanks. I feel kind of oblivious about what's happening behind the closed doors at WMF. Let me know if you know anything else so I can reach out to them accordingly. Best to you. --Ciphers (talk) 02:35, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
