VictorPorton(talk • contribs • deleted contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log • SUL (for IP: GUC)) This user seems to be rapidly editing in support of cryptocurrency software he has created or plans to create, and a new branch of mathematics he says he's created. I took a look the ORCID on the item he created for himself and I can't find anything that seems to make sense. Not sure what to make of all this and I'm logging off for the night William Graham (talk) 05:33, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Also the user seems to be creating some kind of data model items that leads me to believe that they plan to use Wikidata as some sort of database for their out of scope project. William Graham (talk) 05:35, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
I have seen the item Q105037488 previously deleted but I am unable to find the ID of deleted item. Rockpeterson (talk) 12:47, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
I did find with some effort Q79776952 and Q87654161, but also that Q105037488 has a valid site link. I see that User:Bovlb unblocked the author earlier. I wonder if this new fact will change his mind. I now see too little to block the user for. Lymantria (talk) 19:02, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
Yup , Keeping a watch on his edits for now . Rockpeterson (talk) 06:09, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
I am requesting the restoration of the item. This is the element about the church - clearly identifiable material entity, described using serious and publicly available references (it has references).Redboston (talk) 01:21, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
These three ip addresses have been adding false claims to items, and at least two of them have also been re-purposing items. Due to a similar behavioral pattern and that they all seem to be obsessed with Oliver Grainger (Q7087573), I'm assuming they are all one and the same editor. I've warned two of them, and one of them responded by changing my warning message to this, and then restoring their previously reverted edits. This editor seem to have a habit of returning every day or two. Could you please block them? --Shinnin (talk) 19:51, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
I don't think both bot accounts should be used a the same time. Maybe a cause of the current lagging poblems .--Succu (talk) 22:25, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
If others agree I can disable one of the bots, though I will note that both bots are configured to pause once maxlag has reached a certain threshold. Harej (talk) 22:32, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
The current ratelimit for all users and bots has been configured to ensure that all users have access to the same amount of edit capacities, and just running multiple accounts sort of defeats this measure. This is actually similar to the greedy behavior that we witnessed by some bot operators before the ratelimit was added, which was one of the reasons that made the ratelimit necessary. Thus, I ask you not to run bot accounts in a way that they exceed 90 edits per minute together. —MisterSynergy (talk) 01:02, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
For the time being I've disabled Citationgraph bot 2. The separate accounts isn't to evade limits but because they use separate workflows and I want to track their work separately, so I will find a way to slow them down. Harej (talk) 01:27, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
I have made configuration changes to #2 and to the edit queueing system overall. The two bots combined should not edit at a rate faster than 90 edits per minute and I am currently monitoring the bots to make sure that is the case. Harej (talk) 16:47, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
Hi, I noticed various edits of the user TJ Ryba vandalizing many pages where he adds the badge "good article". For example, in Q530906, in Q664628, in Q40741, in Q7291896 and many others. Please, stop him! --Er Cicero (talk) 23:09, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Already done. Do not report issues requiring OS here; email oversightwikidata.org instead. —Hasley+ 12:04, 6 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you, I will remember that. --NameGame (talk) 13:54, 6 March 2021 (UTC)
I think that this discussion is resolved and can be archived. If you disagree, don't hesitate to replace this template with your comment. —Hasley+ 16:45, 6 March 2021 (UTC)
