After receiving the warnings, this user still continues to upload the same non-free photo. Netora (talk) 12:25, 5 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

✓ Done. I blocked both indefinitely, deleted their uploads and created sockpuppet category. Taivo (talk) 11:20, 7 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think フアン_ファン (talk · contribs) should be blocked indef for abusing multiple accounts. 麻雀アカウント (talk · contribs) is probably also another sockpuppet, and older accounts have all been globally locked, except for フアン_ファン that hasn't been indeffed.

How do I ask to get unbanned on the Spanish Wikipedia?

Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, but:

A while ago, I was banned on the Spanish Wikipedia for a false reason (the claim for my ban was "being a sockpuppet of Marrovi"). Email was disabled, and I can't even edit my own talk page (which is really the only place I can ask to get unbanned on there, at least that I could find). Any ideas where/how I could get my ban on the Spanish Wikipedia reviewed? Flagvisioner (talk) 23:27, 5 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Flagvisioner: That is an indefinite block, not a ban. What did you do wrong? Do you promise not to do it again? Pinging @LuchoCR as the blocking Checkuser.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 23:53, 5 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, indefinite block. Sorry, I get both of them confused.

What happened was that AntoFran claimed I was a sockpuppet of Marrovi, since pretty much the only thing I did on the Spanish Wikipedia was add flags of Mexican municipalities, like Marrovi, who made a lot of fictional Mexican municipal flags years ago (which I've deleted recently, see the nomination for yourself at [3].) I will try to find the sockpuppet investigation page on the Spanish Wikipedia and reply with a link to it.

Honestly, I am not too sure what I have done wrong. But I am sorry for whatever it is that I have done wrong. Flagvisioner (talk) 00:00, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The resolution of the es.wiki sockpuppet investigation does NOT say you are related to Marrovi; it says that you commited abuse with a second account: "There is no data from Marrovi, however, everything else shows a technical coincidence between them". Thanks for pinging me, @Jeff G.: LuchoCR (talk) 00:15, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Doesn't that try to imply that I am Marrovi? Sorry, I am a bit confused. Flagvisioner (talk) 00:18, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Flagvisioner: No, it implies you (or someone using your computer) had another account (is that true?), and your edits were similar to those of Marrovi on the surface. @LuchoCR: You're welcome.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 00:21, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Before my ban, no. Might it have to do something with this? [4] I was confused and I couldn't find where to ask to get unbanned. And I think creating a new account is one thing I did wrong, and I apologize for it. Flagvisioner (talk) 00:26, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Flagvisioner: You could have used Flagvisioner2 to appeal on es:Usuario discusión:Flagvisioner or es:Usuario discusión:LuchoCR, but you chose not to (from what I can see). You also could have made a respectable user page, rather than violating es:Wikipedia:Criterios para el borrado rápido#U3.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 00:34, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Didn't realize at the time.

I created Flagvisioner3, then I tried to appeal on my talk page. You can see that it was deleted at [5], after I tried appealing. No new accounts since then. Flagvisioner (talk) 00:38, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Flagvisioner: Are those your only 3 global accounts?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 00:44, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes. Flagvisioner (talk) 00:47, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And, is there a way I can be unblocked? Flagvisioner (talk) (contribs) Flag of Sonora.svg Flag of Arizona.svg 03:15, 7 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Flagvisioner: Only a Spanish Wikipedia Admin may unblock you there under normal circumstances. You may try to make a convincing argument to LuchoCR at User talk:LuchoCR, or to another Spanish Wikipedia Admin. Statistically, that is likely to fail given the blocking of your write access to your user talk pages on Spanish Wikipedia. Or maybe that is the default there.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 16:23, 7 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Repeated copyright violations by User:Wagiis Wagone

Despite numerous warnings, including a final one by De728631, Wagiis Wagone has continued to upload images that are presumably copyright violations. The most recent batch were uploaded today, with "permission" based on a Google Drive link containing a screenshot of an e-mail conversation of dubious and almost laughable veracity. This user also appears to be a single-purpose account at enwiki whose contributions related to the subject of the images in question. I believe a block on Commons is long overdue. --Kinu (talk) 16:23, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Falk2

Would it be possible to unblock the category namespace for User:Falk2? A number of images are currently being uploaded via the "detour" on German WP and by bots, which means a great deal of additional work for de.wiki admins. Regards, Brackenheim (talk) 13:39, 7 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
