Hello. I'm sending this to you, because you've been one of the top 50 users of LQT on over the last 360 days,[1] and I wanted to make sure that you'd seen the announcement at Starting conversion of LiquidThreads to Flow at There are links in the topic-summary at the top, for other discussions (wikitech-l and Project:Current_issues), and a link to the planned process and timeline (scheduled to begin April 6, with smaller conversions at first). Please do test Flow out at Talk:Sandbox if you haven't tried it recently, and give any feedback/suggestions/requests at that main discussion location.

@Msnhinet8: Hi, I'm not sure what your question is, and why you contact me, and what "help" means exactly. You may want to ask on Project:Support desk or look at Professional development and consulting if things get more complicated. --Malyacko (talk) 11:56, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

Equinox - Wiktionary Conduct, Lies, Vulgar Insults, Unjust Blocking[edit]

Hello, I am seeking advice for what to do regarding unjust blocking and being harassed on Wiktionary by the user known as 'Equinox'.
Walterblue222 was my original account, which was unjustly blocked after being repeatedly harassed and insulted by ‘Equinox’.
Equinox has a habit of responding by batantly lying, insulting, and degrading others instead of presenting any logical argument or rebuttal, then blocking them and refusing to ever address the situation in an appropriate manner.
‘Metaknowledge’ then blocked me on false charges of "edit warring", which I did not engage in; the edit I was blocked for making was valid, was re-added by another user without issue, and is on the current version of the page.
None of my edits were malevolent, disruptive, "clearly nonsensical", or "troll edits", and basing a block on multiple previous blocks from a different site is not appropriate - yet, Walterblue222 was permanently blocked.
I am not associated with Theraputicartsgroup.
XavierDuvall was created after the inappropriate blocking of Walterblue222. XavierDuvall is not a sockpuppet because it is not an additional account belonging to me; rather, a replacement account for my original account which should never have been blocked to begin with. I have never had more than one account at any time. Amarach was created after XavierDuvall was inappropriately blocked by Equinox.
I don’t have a problem with others disagreeing with me - as long as they can provide a valid explanation for doing so. Equinox is a prime example of someone who is unable to support their argument logically or rationally, thus behaving like a petulant child, attacking and ignoring others instead of accepting and admitting when they are incorrect about something. I never claimed to be infallible, I make mistakes - everyone does. I have the decency to admit it when I’m proven wrong. Equinox does not.
When I tried posting this explanation to your talk page on Wiktionary, Metaknowledge removed it and blocked me again. They will probably do so again.
Why is this type of behavior permitted? Why should I be blocked for following the rules and expecting others to support their position when they disagree with something I've said? I'm not trying to force my views on anyone and I explain my arguments, but in response all I get is insulted and criticized without any comment on the issue itself.
Please Advise.

Hi unknown writer, I do not know why you think that I personally could advise here. Maybe you could bring this up on meta:Requests for comment, but I do not know all potential escalation paths in all Wikimedia communities, sorry. --Malyacko (talk) 08:54, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
