If you cannot reach me, but there is a vandal that needs banning, here is the list of admins on ?pedia that you could potentially contact. If they are not likely to respond at the moment, you can go to the Illogicopedia IRC chatroom and contact @Isarra, @Seppy, and/or No_one_at_all, and tell them that there is a vandal on the loose while also providing a link that directly leads to the vandal's contributions page.

Maximum two Brazilians? But shamelessly, this is not something to be done! Illogico! Illogically? 13:30, 17 Arche 2017 (UTC)

I had nothing to do with imposing that limit, and unfortunately, I have no idea about who could have possibly imposed the limit either.
As for you bold remark about the United States, I completely agree with you! People with dark skin like me (my family comes from Central America) are slowly becoming discriminated on a more frequent basis because of our damned president and his idiotic supporters, and now it goes beyond skin color and language. We've started to realize that the racism in America is not just because of skin color, but because of how much money we have and our position in society. 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN!

It's not because I'm racist, it's because I don't want low-quality contributions from people who don't understand English and have to use a translator. Icons-flag-au.png Operator XY - (Conversal :: Editations - 6,854 and counting!) 08:29, 18 Arche 2017 (UTC)
The US legacy of racism is deeply intertwined with all aspects of our society. About 10 years ago, I was in a second hand store buying a cane, and a woman standing next to me reading something in a newspaper that was bothering her, turned and looked me over. Checking to see if I'm Caucasian, I think. She said, "the browning of America". She'd read that by some year before the end of the century, caucasians will be a minority.
I looked her over; a fiftyish woman in well-worn, unstylish clothes who was in my economic bracket. I muttered something contrary, though I can't recall what I said, and we parted ways. I considered that she dreads the thought of being the minority, to lose what some call white privilege, and she saw things eroding in front of her eyes. I think this sort of racism is driven by the fear of losing power, control over one's own circumstances. They see this manifested a belief that somehow the government gives lots of free stuff to immigrants and minoritues, stuff you can't get if you're white.
This kind of wrong-headed thinking is pervasive. Some of it lies buried deeply in many people who live an unexamined life. Of course, it's not so simple as assuming that racist thinking means irredeemable awfulness. Like anything, there are shades of gray. There are some who seem to be really nice folks in all other circumstances, who are not actively racist, who try to get along with everybody, yet know in their hearts that they are superior or entitled. They not be aware of these deeply rooted ideas because of, as I said, an unexamined life.
I try to have compassion for folks like this when I meet them. My hope is they see they can discuss thing calmly even with someone who completely disagrees, that maybe by experiencing compassion rather than my disgust, a little might rub off. Anyway, I guess that's my anti-racist rant for today. Perhaps I'll expound on my fears about health care vis a vis our financial circumstances later.

So someone came on IRC shouting that there had been a vandal spree, and I, looking at today's changes and thinking "Pfff this Twoandtwo guy must be bored", promptly infinibanned you and reverted your edits. I is smart bot.

Then I saw yesterday's edits, wondered why I couldn't roll them back, and saw that the actual vandal was from yesterday and that I'd just banned the person who cleaned them up. And reverted all their cleanup. I is smart bot.

Anyway, the real ivobandit is banned now and you are not, and all pages are back as they were (I hope). Let me know if I've screwed anything else up. I am now off to drink. Blottobot (talk) 01:00, 3 Octodest 2017 (UTC)

Progress Report[edit]

Despite being a cheap bastard, I forked over thirty bucks for an online course on how to produce music with LogicPro with professional level quality. So far, I’ve learned more about how a channel strip works. I’m pretty confident about the outcome.

A question for you; are you working towards producing yourself? Is there anything I can do to help you? LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 14:57, 27 Octodest 2017 (UTC)

Also, 2+2=5, thanks for za advice on za music. Gruntled
Bought an online course to learn more about Logic Pro, my DAW. It’s pretty good, and I’ve been learning the grosser points on mixing, something I didn’t do on my published music. A mistake, perhaps? Another cool thing... my son bought me Komplete by Native Instruments last Christmas, the entry level version . The Select version, a collection of some cool software for engineering and some instruments, most notably a West African collection with software to assemble rhythms and/or melodies. It’s like directing a group of musicians. There are two upgrades, $400 and $600. So, I caught wind of a 50% off sale, and my wife insisted I get the next upgrade version as an early Christmas present. It’s got session horns, strings, guitars and pianos, a bunch of synths and plug ins and a group of Indian instruments with a sequencer, like the West African package. It also has a tool which supposedly makes going from a good mix to a good master very easy.
On the downside, my hearing is probably good for 59 years old, but I’ve certainly lost some. I fear I may miss small problems in mixing or something. I will probably be able to get some help there, so it should be a minor problem. I don’t know anyone connected to music, but my granddaughters know some performers I expect to meet. My health prevents me from getting out for more than groceries and some shopping, so getting out to venues and to meet people is out unless I can improve my situation. Despite some obstacles, however, I am really excited that I have these opportunities and resources to work with. I will let you know as I remix my work and better, newer stuff becomes available.

Megavandal?[edit]

Japanese user needs a Chinese burn.

User:加賀山匠 is all over the place throwing pure vandalism on pages and has created a pile of socks.

Is this a result of dropping a link on a Japanese wiki? Have we accidentally scuttled the ship? Snarglefoop (talk) 15:30, 17 Aym 2018 (UTC)

  • And by the way one of the socks created is named "Programmerio" in Japanese. So..... looks like "Programmerio" in English may be another rat that slipped on board when the ship stopped to pick up a load of breadfruit. Lessee what else Google Translate has to say about the load of comfortable shoe liners....

Yes, Snarglefoop, this is indeed a result of dropping a link on the Japanese wiki. I just hope that they don't come in waves because it could jeopardize the prospects of making Usopedia a sister wiki. If this becomes a bigger problem, we'll have to inform the pioneer. 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN!

Ah, this guy seems to be a known interwiki vandal in Japan (who is also active on Wikipedia, Uncyclopedia, etc.), and his/her intention is surely to disrupt the relationship between Usopedia and Illogicopedia. I know this guy also appeared in English Uncyclopedia in the past, before I have joined English Uncyclopedia, so might be an international vandal anyway.
And here's a piece of advice dealing with him/her. Blocking IPs using CheckUser might work on him/her (which worked on Usopedia and several other sites).--The Pioneer (talk) 14:38, 18 Aym 2018 (UTC)
I am aware of blocking IP addresses and ranges because I have been doing that extensively for the past 3 months, though I do not have CheckUser rights. Only the bureaucrats, our bot, and our sysadmin have those rights, but they have been dormant this month.
If you can give me the IP addresses used by this "international vandal" (we've had one before), I can check if he/she is using a proxy network or Tor. If not, then that means that I can perform an IP range block on any shared group of IP addresses used by this vandal.
As for Usopedia, the most we can do is wait for a response from our sysadmin. She must be very busy, since she's also an important member of MediaWiki. 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN!

OK, here are some known IPs and ranges (not a known proxy/tor/VPN according to my research).
Thanks again for your advice for Usopedia.--The Pioneer (talk) 06:11, 19 Aym 2018 (UTC)

Someone put up a mainspace page named after you on Uncyclopedia[edit]

But they left it blank so I put stuff on it.

Thought you might be amused. (Maybe.) 2+2=5 Snarglefoop (talk) 20:05, 30 Aym 2018 (UTC)

We've picked up another vandal.[edit]

User ウソつき == "Lied". First edit was to bracket a page with <nowiki> ... </nowiki> tags. Snarglefoop (talk) 09:22, 3 Yoon 2018 (UTC)

It actually means "Liar", and is a spoofed account of an active user on Usopedia. Technically speaking, there is a way to stop bracketing pages with <nowiki> tags using the Abusefilter, and I can help you guys, if necessary.--The Pioneer (talk) 09:29, 3 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
And I guess I know a way to prevent non-English spam posts like this.--The Pioneer (talk) 09:33, 3 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
Detecting foreign language spam and preventing it sounds useful. A major fraction of the vandalism we get is robospam and blocking it robotically sounds like a Good Plan. OTOH since Liar is presumably a human jerk, wouldn't he (I assume it's a 'he') just do something else if we blocked 'nowiki' additions? (For that matter, why is that such a popular way to vandalize pages? I've never understood what the attraction is.) Snarglefoop (talk) 17:18, 3 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
OH wait -- I'm stupiding. I just remembered how abuse filters work -- I got bitten by one when I first started editing here, and something I did tripped it. It blocks the victim who trips it, right? For 'nowiki' that might be useful, as long as it still allows 'nowiki' embedded in a larger edit. Foreign language, tho, I'm not so sure -- that's what I hit way back when. On a wiki where nonsense is the order of the day it's possible for a legitimate user to trigger that check, unless it's tuned to be relatively insensitive (like, you need a lot of non-English text and nothing else, perhaps). Snarglefoop (talk) 17:28, 3 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
1. Blocking is only ONE of the options. You can just warn or disallow (and block them after checking out the log) if you wish. You can also make exceptions (which we do in the article English and for Cg098 in Usopedia) using past actions, or/and test it before implementing to prevent blocking by mistake.
2. Vandals from Japan usually have their own patterns of actions.Though we still can't block all of their actions, we can prevent MOST of them even if they change its patterns.--The Pioneer (talk) 11:17, 4 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
P.S. As a matter of fact, I guess it's more difficult to create a filter for non-English posts than to create one for non-Japanese (which we have in Usopedia and currently 100% accurate), because the way I did it was to detect features in Japanese and disallow edits without any of such features (so it was a reverse-whitelisting: you know, some of the Japanese Characters are used only in Japanese, and at the same time commonly seen in natural Japanese sentences), but it seems that this way won't work for English, as it shares the same characters with dozens of other languages (word listing of the most frequently used vocabulary might work, but still needs testiing).--The Pioneer (talk) 11:31, 4 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
P.P.S. For spams including that of English, creating a filter that disallows creation of pages without Categories might work (as typically, they don't add cats). To prevent blocking by mistake, just make it "disallow" (without blocking) and show a warning message to add categories (mainly for beginners) (still, an exception list of templates that add categories is necessary, as those templates are often used without wikitext showing links of categories).--The Pioneer (talk) 14:14, 5 Yoon 2018 (UTC)

Does this abuse filter have anything to do with CHICKEN? I've tripped that wire a couple times in my day. CG098 (talk ₪‎ contribs) 00:48, 4 Yoon 2018 (UTC)

I don't think so. As far as I know, tags aren't included in the variables for the filter. This might also help.--The Pioneer (talk) 11:17, 4 Yoon 2018 (UTC)

Oh yeah I forgot to sign this. Snarglefoop (talk) 17:55, 8 Yoon 2018 (UTC)

Is there an option we could turn on which would require any IP editor to go through a captcha the first time they save in a session? Just wondering.... Snarglefoop (talk) 17:55, 8 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
We've got one or two real editors who have been editing from IPv6 addresses so blocking IP edits would be kind of very not-nice. (I still don't understand how somebody edits Illogicopedia from a toaster oven, which is the sort of thing most IPv6 addresses supposedly are, but some people are just astonishingly resourceful, I guess.) Snarglefoop (talk) 17:59, 8 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
If you look at Special:ListGroupRights, the skipcaptcha right is given to autoconfirmed users but not all users. What you want is for it to be given to all users and for the captcha to trigger on any edit. That's as much as I know. 2+2 can't do anything about this -- it's buried in the software somewhere.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 19:51, 8 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
I thought he might at least be able to help with the panic and hand-wringing. A typical bot army supposedly contains something between 10,000 and 100,000 zombie computers. If these hair people decided to put us in their crosshairs we'd never be able dig out from under the mess -- it would be restore from backup or give up and go home. ('Course I don't know why they'd want to do that (why would they hate us so?), but OTOH if a retarded computer program is directing the zombie hordes, I could easily imagine a glitch could make it decide to spam-DOS us.) Snarglefoop (talk) 20:06, 8 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
Another one reared its ugly head:

One thing I know about them is that range blocks won't work well. However, as I have mentioned above, disallowing creation of pages without categories (and templates that add categories) using the AbuseFilter will work well (and that's something 2+2 can do).--The Pioneer (talk) 07:29, 9 Yoon 2018 (UTC)
