Deletion request[edit]

Could someone delete User:Legoktm/sandbox? The account's just been locked after it was hacked (see and, and the creation of the sandbox with "test test" as the sole contents was obviously the hacker's way of testing that he was in control of the account without risking discovery.

@Dave Braunschweig: -- Just FYI: user Legoktm actually created the sandbox as a test. I received this in an email yesterday: "Legoktm added a comment. Creating worked for me. Is this happening for anyone besides yourself?" I created T150503: Failure to save recent changes to receiving error messages for attempts to save recent changes above about 6kB. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 21:56, 12 November 2016 (UTC)
Dave, Marshallsumter notified me about this too; I'm sorry about misunderstanding what was going on, and yes please undelete it. Nyttend (discusscontribs) 22:28, 12 November 2016 (UTC)
YesY Done -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:01, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

Blocking needed[edit] - I've already gone ahead and blocked him on WB due to his harmful editing routine on Wikipedia, Wikibooks, and Wikiversity. It's clear that this IP-Address is here to only vandalize, and not benefit WV. I recommend a temporary block to make sure this user takes time to realize his edits are of no good and he needs to put a stop to this, or this user could simply lose interest and leave. ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 21:11, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

YesY Done before you posted. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 21:30, 18 November 2016 (UTC)


Special:Contributions/Realreferz - Account specifically made to promote his company/service with no intent to positively edit here at Wikiversity. Please block. ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 12:59, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Block for MIKEL S. SARWONO[edit]

Special:Contributions/MIKEL S. SARWONO - please check his centralauth. He is nothing but a vandal who is here to cause disruption. He is part of this group that aims to change/alter the block/warn templates and mediawiki texts. These types of users have been blocked in the past, and hopefully will continue to have that fate. Please block fast. -Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:18, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

[1] - Blocked at en.wikiquote for disruption
[2] - Blocked at meta for LTA/Disruption

and more wikis as well -Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:18, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
