Forum:Do you speak Vaporwave?

You don't need drugs, or even toxic fish from the Amazon region, when you have this.
But why have I brought this strangeness to your attention??

One reason[edit]

Anyway, I'll change back from the beauty that is fullwidth.
Is Jesus your saviour? Does he save 15 percent on his insurance plans? Do you have battery scrapings in those hard-to-reach places? Well, fear no more...

since the Japanese are coming!

Getting logical here[edit]

So I've noticed Japanese users entering the wiki in RecentChanges. What's happening? And apparently, there's ANOTHER WIKI involved. Ham, spam, bacon, or pineapple? XY007 (talk - contribs - business) 11:04, 23 Aym 2018 (UTC)

Check the English translations of the names of the new accounts, using Google Translate. Single dictionary words, most of them. One of them is named "Spam" (in Japanese). Prepping for something?

I'm guessing you're out of the loop, XY007.
Regarding the new users in Japanese: should I ban them as a precautionary measure, Snarglefoop? Their existence alone has the potential to further jeopardize the Usopedia proposal. 15:42, 23 Aym 2018 (UTC)
Holy cats, we're making IP addresses into admins these days??
Sure, ban them -- ban them all! Follow them back to their home wiki and get them banned, there, too, if you can.
(Actually I may not be the best one to ask -- my feeling is always block early, block often, and ban on a regular basis; it keeps the air cleaner. I play a member of the Spanish Inquisition in DnD. I kill people to demonstrate God's love. It's fun.) Snarglefoop (talk) 15:54, 23 Aym 2018 (UTC)
Seriously, tho, if they had said anything on their user or talk pages, or edited anything, when the accounts were first created it would seem OK. However, they didn't, and they were created en masse at exactly the same time (pretty clearly all by the same person, who is automatically guilty of socking as a result). IMHO either they were created by a robot or they were created in order to cause trouble later. Either way blocking them but leaving them access to edit their own talk pages just in case they want to say something about what sort of vandalism they're planning to commit might make sense. (Or just ban 'em -- we're never really going to need an account named "spam" in Japanese, for instance, or so I'd guess.) Snarglefoop (talk) 16:00, 23 Aym 2018 (UTC)
How about I ban the one named "Spam" and then we (yes, we) can check RC for any Japanese vandals. If any of them act up, I can ban them or you ca report them to me, Snarglefoop. 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN! Past accounts of sodomy RAVENOUS AND RUTHLESS CAPITALISM The greatest article in the history of Illogia! 16:46, 23 Aym 2018 (UTC)
'slowly Nuoc', 'spam', 'perseverance' and 'developer'. Make of that what you will. XY007 (talk - contribs - business) 23:03, 23 Aym 2018 (UTC)
Didn't The Pioneer say somewhere that the community of Usopedia was made up of vandals from the Japanese Uncyclopedia? CG098 (talk ₪‎ contribs) 03:10, 24 Aym 2018 (UTC)
See wikipedia,uncyclopedia, and Usopedia. Those remaining three accounts are all known vandals in Japanese MediaWiki websites. Thus, I think it's OK to ban them all.
Known vandals in Usopedia are:LTA:KOSHIN, LTA:DEV, LTA:KB, LTA:FURANO, LTA:NUOC, and LTA:SPAM (+unspecified accounts are listed here). I think it's OK to block any accounts using the name listed in these links.
One more thing. As a matter of fact, the founder of Usopedia (founded the website in around 2014) used to be a vandal in uncyclopedia (only BEFORE being banned and founding Usopedia, so it's like 4 years ago), but users active today are NOT vandals in any websites (I think your source is the article Usopedia, and you know, it's a piece of nonsense anyway).--The Pioneer (talk) 09:55, 24 Aym 2018 (UTC)
(an additional comment) I've added some lists that may be useful than google translate on my user page. I think they will work as possible blacklists.--The Pioneer (talk) 10:31, 24 Aym 2018 (UTC)
So those accounts must be equally as troublesome on Usopedia. I'm sorry for misunderstanding at first. CG098 (talk ₪‎ contribs) 23:52, 24 Aym 2018 (UTC)
Never mind (since, I guess, it's partly due to my English skills).
Yes, they're making troubles in many websites including Usopedia, but some, if not most, of their activities can be prevented using the AbuseFilter (which we actually do in Usopedia). Though it hasn't been modified for a long time, I found out that not only sysadmins but also Werewolves can modify it, so I guess you guys can act quickly on this matter. If you need any information about OUR AbuseFilter, please wiki-mail me.--The Pioneer (talk) 09:22, 25 Aym 2018 (UTC)

Let's get this back on topic...[edit]
